Different BSODs in ntoskrnl.exe, (Codes: 0x3b - 0xc5 - 0x124)

Q: Different BSODs in ntoskrnl.exe, (Codes: 0x3b - 0xc5 - 0x124)

Hello I am currently experiencing several different BSODs in random intervals The file BluwScreenViewer points its finger at is ntoskrnl exe which from what i read online should mean that it's a driver issue I still don't know which driver though Or if it actually is a Driver that is at fault here I already did a clean install of the GPU and the Chipset Driver The Chipset one was probably the culprit that caused my BSODs without any error (Codes: in ntoskrnl.exe, Different 0xc5 - - BSODs 0x124) 0x3b showing which had me going mad for weeks ran the windows memory check and tried different security solutions I am currently using a paid subscription of Bitdefender Internet Security Over the last few weeks i switched to Trend Micro and Kaspersky for a couple of days each just to see if that does anything to improve the situation I used special removal tools from the vendors after using any of them and before installing new ones just to make sure i don't add more problems So far no luck I would really appreciate any help here I don't really know enough about this to narrow it down further Collection file with the dmp files attached

Preferred Solution: Different BSODs in ntoskrnl.exe, (Codes: 0x3b - 0xc5 - 0x124)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If it does not see any error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers. Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

I'm testing a Smart-UPS 3000 XLM (not XL) and when I plugged it in all the lights flash and the device makes a chirping sound periodically. It does this for a split second about every 6 seconds. What does it mean? I can't find a manual anywhere for it.

This machine was working fine the other day then when I went to start it up, the monitor wouldnt turn on. So I took out the old video card and put another in and when I did so it started to give me a beep code. 2 very quick 8 normal length then a short pause and 1 more normal length one. I tried finding beep codes for asrock 775Dual-VSTA but im having a problem finding anything. I believe its an intel based board.

Hey there everyone! I'm pretty new to this forum but i really need your help.

Earlier today i experience 2 different BSOD erros at different times, and for no apparent reason.

I'm not sure what the reason is for either of them since i just reformatted earlier today. I have the dump file for each of the BSODs. It is attached.

Could anyone possibly tell me what the problem could be? Thanks in advance

Hey could somebody look at my minidumps for me? I ran memtest over night with no errors, the crashes are all different I have reseated ram, removed one stick and tried in both slots then removed that stick and tried the other in both slots with the same results. nothing over clocked cleaned my case out reseated vid card and made sure all cables were snug I'm out of ideas short of buying new parts. I have no known goods to fall back on because this is my first pci-e rig. thanks
 

A:Random bsods, I upped minidumps and my belarc profile

I did not have time to sift through all your information... very complete! Thanks!
I did note, you are running XP SP3

Some of your Errors are summarized below... Suggestions at the bottom.

KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000008e)




This is a very common bugcheck.
EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 - The instruction at "0x%08lx" referenced memory at "0x%08lx". The memory could not be "%s".
DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID: DRIVER_FAULT
BUGCHECK_STR: 0x8E
PROCESS_NAME: GoogleUpdate.ex
IMAGE_NAME: sr.sysClick to expand...

KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000008e)




This is a very common bugcheck.
Debugging Details: EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 - The instruction at "0x%08lx" referenced memory at "0x%08lx". The memory could not be "%s".
DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID: DRIVER_FAULT
BUGCHECK_STR: 0x8E
PROCESS_NAME: services.exeClick to expand...

KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000008e)




This is a very common bugcheck.
Debugging Details: EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 - The instruction at "0x%08lx" referenced memory at "0x%08lx". The memory could not be "%s".
DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID: DRIVER_FAULT
BUGCHECK_STR: 0x8E
PROCESS_NAME: explorer.exe
IMAGE_NAME: win32k.sysClick to expand...

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (d1)




An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually caused by drivers using improper addresses.
DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID: DRIVER_FAULT
BUGCHECK_STR: 0xD1
PROCESS_NAME: lotroclient.exe
IMAGE_NAME: ha20x2k.sysClick to expand...

BAD_POOL_HEADER (19)




The pool is already corrupt at the time of the current request. This may or may not be due to the caller. The internal pool links must be walked to figure out a possible cause of the problem, and then special pool applied to the suspect tags or the driver verifier to a suspect driver.
DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID: DRIVER_FAULT
PROCESS_NAME: pidgin.exeClick to expand...

One of your faulting processes is lotroclient.exe - a game... resource intensive.
One of your faulting processes was an IM client.
One was sr.sys ... which is system restore.
Other pointers are not very helpful (yet).

You say that
1. MEMTEST tested good.
2. nothing over clocked

Have you considered the possibility of Malware/Virus?
If you think this could be a possibility, then check...http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html.
Be sure to follow all the steps carefully.

I only looked at the most recent dumps.
Route44 or others may have additional suggestions, if I overlooked something, or if they find something in other dumps...
I will try to come back and look at this further sometime tomorrow.

Next Day - Further Review of Hardware / Software Report (Belarc)
I notice that you do have Spybot, but I am not seeing your Firewall or AV software.
These are crucial pieces for maintaining a healthy system when connected to the Web.
Unfortunately I see you are also running a Torrent (Filesharing) package. This software will open a hole through your firewall, and leave you fully exposed to whatever nasities are running on those with whom you are sharing files. This means that Filesharing programs introduce a constant threat to your security and stability. Please look at other threads here on Filesharing...

Because you are running torrent software, I would strongly recommend the 8 steps, (link noted above).
Especially since I do not see your av or firewall listed in the Belarc report.

So after a long time of not posting, and still trying to figure out my BSOD's:
KERNEL STACK INPAGE ERROR
KERNEL DATA INPAGE ERROR 0X0000007A
and
A PROCESS OR CRUCIAL THREAD HAS BEEN ELIMINATED 0X0000004F

I have...
Ran several memtests (passed all multiple times)
Replaced my Corsair XMS RAM (Both 1gb sticks) (Thank you lifetime warranty)
Tried to find the errors in event viewer after almost every BSOD (no luck :[ )
Just about took a sledge hammer to my PC (usually twice a week)
And think it is perhaps a problem between my mobo (ASUS M2N SLI Deluxe), and my processor (AMD AM2 2200+)
If anyone has any ideas or knows of any other ways to narrow down BSOD error message origins, posting them would be fantastically helpful to me, thanks a ton.

Might a faulty harddrive be a part of it?

EDIT: For some reason this was only noticeable during the first 20-30 minutes of system uptime.

A:BSODs and now bad display

The 'BIOS memory chip (that small circular thing) from my old gone PC' is a battery that supplies retention voltage to your CMOS (bios). The checksum error is because it now has no voltage and it 'forgets' things.

Put the original back in.

Your other symptoms sound more like your graphics card failing or driver corruption than anything else. Uninstall your graphics drivers from Add/Remove and reboot. You'll only have VGA. How does that perform?

Hi, I randomly get BSOD's about IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I checked my IRQ's and I noticed a couple things...

High Definition Audio Controller is on the same IRQ as my Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS.

I also noticed another High Definition Audio Controller on the same IRQ as Nvidia Nforce Serial ATA Controller

Are these bad things to be sharing?

My specs:

EVGA Nforce 680i SLi LT Mobo
4x 1gb Adata DDR2-800mhz
EVGA Geforce 8800 GTS SSC edition
Intel Core 2 Quad q6600
Soundblaster X-fi PCI Expressx1
500gb Seagate barracude 7200rpm HDD (SATA)
52x LG Dvd rw/cdrw lightscribe drive (SATA)

hello
Last week i assembled a new computer for myself. the specs are as follows:

asus p5k pro
intel quad q6600 2.4
2 gb ddr2 800 team elite
disco sata 350GB 16mb western digital
asus gforce 8800gt 512mb
gravador de dvd nec sata

when i first started the computer, and started installing windows i got a bsod, after the reboot all went well, but when i started installing drivers, i started getting BSOds after each install.
it became a padron: each time i install a new program, a new driver, or a new hardware (like a usb pen) i get a BSOD, but after that i can use it without a problem. i did some memory tests, but no problem was found.
can anyone help me?
 

A:Lots of bsods, cant find the reason

That P5K Pro board has been infamous for disliking certain memory modules. See if the memory you have is on the ASUS recommended list.
I assume you have checked your Device Manager and there are no yellow or red flags there. If not, please do so.
BSOD's are most frequently driver related. But can be caused by memory the motherboard does not like, or a unacceptable video graphics card.
I would start by trying one memory module at a time, or running the free MemTest86 for four hours or 7 passes, whichever is shorter.
Alternately, try different standard memory modules such as Crucial, Kingston, Corsair, OCZ, Infineon.
For video graphics, try going back to a slightly earlier version of the Driver, or go to a different source to get it.
Good luck. Please keep us posted about the change that fixes it.

A:Ntoskrnl.dll missing or corrupt

If it is indeed the hard drive that is faulty, then yes, replacing it will make the problem go away. Of course, the issue could be something much more serious like a broken motherboard.

You remove the password by using the proper settings in the BIOS setup. You need to know the existing password of course. (Better go and find that someone who set the password in the first place).

As stated, my suspicion was that my PSU failed suddenly last week. My girlfriend was typing a paper for school when we heard a "POP" come from my case, followed by sudden shutdown. No response whatsoever power-wise. So I ordered a sweet new Seasonic 330W PSU from Newegg and put it in myself when it came. After having hooked it up, I get no case LEDs, no case fans, no response whatsoever other than when I turn the I/O switch on on the new PSU, the green LED comes on on my Motherboard.

Being that I can't find my motherboard manual, and I can't find the LED trouble codes on the Asus website, what do you guys think my problem is? My Motherboard is an Asus P4P800 Deluxe. The LED is flashing at a constant rate when I turn the power on, probably once every second or a little less.
HELP!
 

A:New PSU, Still No Power! LED codes?

It's quite possible that the PSU took the motherboard with it when it blew.

Unplug all peripherals - CD, HDD, any PCI Cards, and if it still won't post, then the board is gone.

S478's are only available 2nd hand, so it's either time to upgrade, or search Classifieds / EBay.

A:mobo BEEP CODES

hi there... the beeping sound is an indication of something being wrong with the RAM. Try taking out the RAM and plugging it back in after dusting it off a bit. Your motherboard or PSU might also have taken a shock somehow (power surge?). If its not the ram, take your pc in and check the two components

Well, my pc BSOD's basically whenever I touch it or move it at all, and sometimes, often times, I'll just come home to a bsod. And often, I will have to boot the pc up 11 or 12 times before it will actually boot up and quit crashing in the middle. Also, I know when my pc is going to crash sometimes, because sometimes it literally chirps. Little chirps at around 1.5 second intervals, then it crashes.

I've included the bsod below... id prefer if my pc did not do that, especially fail to boot so many times. I've ran chkdsk, and its found stuff, but that takes about 20-30 min and i dont want to have to keep doing that. Any advice would be great.

Unfortunately it's a dreaded eMachine *shoots self* (model 420) so i thought that the psu/mobo have probably gone (apparently the screen went blank one day). Anyway, the beep codes go like this: 1-3-3-1, i.e. one beep, three beeps, three beeps then one more beep.

I've tried google for ages and found nothing that helps so i thought maybe someone on here would know what this code means

A:computer wont boot, weird beep codes

By 'chip fan' do you mean the one on the North Bridge or the one on the CPU?
If the fan on your heatsink on your CPU died, your CPU would probably be overheating and switching itself of. Either that or it died.
If you mean the one on the NB, it could also be overheating. If you don't have a fan that fits, you could either buy a new one that does or make a fanduct out of pieces of plastic or cardboard.

Obviously, it`s difficult to be sure from just one minidump, but it is a known issue and therefore is worthy of further investigation.

Dear Forum
I'm getting BSODs almost every day, and my wife is starting to complain.
Can anyone help interpret and resolve the problems.
I have attached a few of the recent minidumps. I think they might be caused by different problems.
Many thanks.

A:Daily BSODs

One crash by "symevent.sys", a Symantec file. One by "rdbss.sys", a Windows File, another by "ndis.sys", also a Windows Files.
Two by "lpx.sys", which I can't find any info about.
Try uninstalling Symantec products, and try a free alternative like Avast, AVG,etc. If that doesn't fix it then open command prompt (start-run-cmd), and run sfc /scannow to check system files.

I have a serious problem. My computer keeps crashing over, and over again. The errors it's thrown are listed below. I've googled them but am confused as to what the problem really is. All I know is I'm about to lose my mind because I can be surfing, chatting, or gaming and my PC will just crash for no reason whatsoever and most of the time it's without any warning given.

I've replaced my sound card, my gfx card, and updated my BIOS so what gives? I've been told it might be my RAM, my power supply, my cpu, ore my mobo so I dunno what to do. Thanks in advance for any and all responses.

Have you tried a reformat. It helps me out all the time, just reformat your harddrive and see what happens. A new format and clean install of your OS will do wonders. :hotbounce

STOP 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x8058ADE2, 0xB8C8396C, 0x00000000)

Actions taken thus far:

1) reinstalled Windows XP SP2

2) replaced HDD and reinstalled Windows XP SP2

3) new Kingston 256MB - Memtest86 still gave the same errors

4) replaced video card and used different monitor

5) new CDRW and new data cables

6) new 400 w P/S

7) brand new P3 866 CPU with different fsb and multiplier from Celeron 900

8) replaced motherboard with another ASUS P3V133 - more errors on Memtest86.
Now Windows XP will not complete pre-installation file loading.

Inasmuch as there is little else to replace except me, I am considering the possibility that either the slotket has failed, or the original motherboard may have had a faulty voltage regulator that may have damaged the L2 cache for both CPUs.

I'll buy one more P3 CPU before I let this machine beat me.

A:Fun Stuff: Part II (BSoDs, Mobos, and HDs)

Without knowing anything more than what you have reported I would suspect one of the two below to be the cause of your troubles:

1. What kind of PSU are you using? A weak or poor quality PSU will cause system problems that manifest themselves in strange ways.

2. Have you loaded the latest drivers for the mobo? Try the following:
Remove all the Nvidia drivers (including display) via the windows add/remove programs utility, restart in safe mode and run DrivercleanerPRO then restart and install the latest Nvidia driver set. Also, if you do this, do not load the Nvidia Armor Firewall. See if that stabilizes things.

Good luck mate and great flash movies BTW.

I was adding more ram to it, next thing you know i power up the system and get a "ringing sound of very fast beeps" that will not STOP they are not in any type of order so i coulden't troubleshoot. Anyway i tried removing the ram that i installed.. that didnt work still got the forever beeps it has power but doesnt even make it to the post/bios screen. PLEASE somone help me... im thinking i either fried my motherboard or the F"N powersupply **** the bed.
 

A:help with beep codes.. its not listed in the thread above please help.

first thing I would try would be to reset the cmos. since you cant get into the bios try unplugging the computer then hold down the power button for several secodns to drain any residual energy. then remove the cmos battery from the system and let it set for about 15 min. reinstall the cmos battery and see if it boots up.

A:Random rebooting/freezing, BSODs and more

First download and run the Memtest86+ programme from www.memtest86.com

Let it run for at least seven passes. if you don`t have a floppy drive, there is an iso version, that you can burn to cd and boot from that.

If your ram checks out ok, then I would guess that either you have a bad psu, or a overheating problem with either your cpu or graphics card.

Hi all first post from me Please move this post if its in the wrong section I System AMD64 Random BSODs, have a recurring problem with a system I put together about a year ago that is slowly driving me insane The system in question is ASUS K V SE Deluxe mobo Using onboard sound and LAN AMD Clawhammer CPU Nvidia GFX Card Mentor Wireless card Disabled Gb Crucial RAM selected for motherboard The problem in question Random BSODs, AMD64 System is a recurring blue screen of death with constantly changing messages and files at fault I assumed it was a RAM problem until I upgraded to the Crucial and the problems persisted The problem is strange in that it will quickly affect roughly boot ups and then the system will be relatively stable for days For instance I can play a complete game of Dawn of War or Battlefield with no problems When I tested my old RAM it passed tests of memtest with no errors yet failed every Microsoft RAM diagnostic tool test and then it locked the sysem at around test The new memory is exactly the same except it fails Microsoft s tests and doesnt lock up The PSU is fairly cheap and nasty rated at W yeah right and shows a V voltage of - usually I have read in other threads that this could be a problem especially if the PSU is prone to voltage rail sag under load Thats being changed soon to a much better model Cooling is no problem the CPU stays at a healthy C when idle and C or so when under load Sooo I have come to the conclusion that if it isnt the PSU then I am very much looking at a new CPU or Mobo failing some driver or IRQ conflict etc However because the BSODs seem to be so random I m hedging my bets towards a hardware issue Could be on board LAN at a pinch I suppose I have also re-installed windows once but no difference I ve attached my latest minidumps I can t make much sense from them namely because they are so different from each other it seems to me All comments and suggestions welcome Cheers Owain nbsp

Alright, I bought a bunch of new stuff for my computer(case,ram,hdd coolers,heatsink and fan.) It worked for several days until today when i went to turn it on,and it wont POST. The fans spin,and will spin forever if I let them,but it doesnt POST.

I switched out the processor to see if it was that,thank god it wasnt.

I took out all RAM to see if i could pull a beep out of the thing and,nada.

I reseated the processor several times.

The speaker is connected.

I tried several video cards both AGP and PCI in several different slots.

I unplugged everything except for RAM,Video,and Processor.

I reset the CMOS several times.


Nothing seems to work :X

What now?

Thanks much,
Tyler Bello
 

A:Computer doesnt POST,no beep codes,not processor,not video.

Does the motherboard support integrated graphics? If so, try booting without your video card (eliminating another thing).

Other than that, sounds like the motherboard is dead. Got a spare hanging around to test?

I just had the same problem with a friend's system and had to replace the motherboard.

Good Luck!

welcome to techspot.



NOW I WANT TO KNOW WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED????? IS MY ONBOARD NIC CARD FAULTY?? IF YES, THEN HOW SHOULD I CONFIRM IT SO THAT I CAN SEND MY MOTHERBOARD FOR REPLACEMENT??Click to expand...

the errors you reported are the result of a hardware problem. run the computer in each of the following configurations until you get a system error or the machine runs flawlessly for a day or two:
-with the onboard NIC on and connected to the modem
-with the onboard NIC on but not connected to anything
-with the onboard NIC disabled in your bios

at a glance, it seems likely that your problems were caused by faulty hardware, but these steps are important for diagnosing the problem.

A:beep codes

Could your powersupply be too weak?
Did you connect the 12v 4-pin powerconnector to the motherboard?
Have you tried the RAM in other slots?
Does your video-card need an extra power-cable and if so, did you insert it?

Try clearing the BIOS (see your manual how to do that). Make sure you disconnect the mains-cable first!

Re-installed my A7N8X-X that was previously overclocked with a 2600+ cpu. Took out any hardware that was connected. Now even with same CPU or a different one a 3200+ the mainboard returns a short 1 second beep about every second, when the CPU and fan are connected. Is this mainboard toast, or there any other possibilities before I get another board. PS
I took the system battery out and did re-set the BIOS twice before attempting this.
 

A:A7N8X-X post codes

Can you access the BIOS & enabled speech reporter ? When you say reset the BIOS, I don't know if that means that you went into the BIOS & loaded default settings or if you tried a ClearCMOS.

Speech reporter might give you a better idea of what's wrong.

In any case, according to the A7N8X manual :

High frequency beeps -> CPU Overheated / System running at a lower frequency

Hi

I'm going to be upgrading my Hard drive really soon(100GB is awful small)

I lost my Microsoft office 2007 box

How would I find out what the code is I used to activate the program for when I installed it.

I think the code was in that White envolpe but I usally keep them in a CD case

Also would the steps be the same for other programs I have installed so i can write down the codes if I can't find the box.

Thanks
 

A:How can I find the activation codes I used for programs

Maybe you can do a system backup to an external, and restore on to your new HDD.
There are programs out there that claim they can retrieve hte keys, I don't know how reliable they are...

Hi everybody,

For the past 1 month I've been getting Irql not less or equal and Page fault in non paged area BSODs every day several times and I have read so many posts for troubleshooting these errors and tried so many of them, from a clean windows 7 install to updating drivers, using driver sweeper and then updating again and what not..

But I just dotn seem to understand whats wrong. Tried understanding the minidumps using bluescreen view and I all could gather was some issue with ntoskernel.exe

I'm attaching my minidumps, can someone please tell me whats wrong - is it my laptop getting too hot or some driver etc?

Extra Info: The laptop is HP dv-7 running Win7-x64 and does seem to get pretty hot, especially when I'm playing Counter Strik 1.6 on Steam and crashes are much more frequent when I'm playing Steam CS 1.6

Thanks and Regards

This error is quite old if I remember right. Errors like missing files are more commonly caused by hardware failures and malware attacks, and to attempt to replace missing files only, is not recommended

I've two weeks ago installed an additional DIMM ram stick. Ever since I've been recieving completely random BSOD's.

I've recently attempted a fresh install, creating a new page file, as well as defraging. Although I didn't fix the problem the BSOD's seem to be thrown at me less frequently. As well, I seem to only be receiving two types of BSOD's currently, opposed to before.

I haven't been able to track down the cause of bsod's I've been getting recently. I have attached the last three minidumps as a zip file; I don't know whether anyone can help. Oddly each BSOD has a different error message. Besides my specs below, the system is unusual in having two samsung 830 ssds (256 GB) in a Raid 1 configuration controlled by the intel raid sata6 on the asus motherboard. I'm using the latest version of all the drivers etc. (in this case, Intel rst-e (enterprise), not plain rst). (Did not get any memory errors with memory checkers.) Thank you.

What memory checkers did you use? How long was the PC running normally before the BSOD's first appeared? A recent update or program addition could have caused this instability. I have seen so many posts here dealing with Windows 7 64-bit and SSD's that have this sort of instability recently...

A:BSODs on Win x64 with error "driver IRQ Not less or equal"

"usbohci.sys" is the offending driver (Universal Serial Bus Onboard) Motherboard bad? Is there a bios update available? Are you over-clocking?

Background:
So I built this machine about a month ago, and it was working fine till a week ago, when I started getting random BSODs. They're not always the same call-out, and was wondering if you could help me get to the bottom of it. I am not aware of any changes, except for maybe video card driver updates, that could be causing this.


Problem:

BF3 is crashing for random reasons, I never find out why. I had crossfire enabled and disabled it and it still crashed. Sometimes I get a BSOD while playing bf3, other time I was just on youtube.

System:
Win 7, 64bit
i5-2500K
ASRock P67 Extreme4 Gen3
2x MSI Twin Frozr R6950 III's
16GB Corsair Vengeance Ram
120GB Crucial M4 SSD as boot drive
4x 2TB in RAID5 for storage.

What first step should I take?

Thanks,
Chris

So a couple of weeks ago I started getting BSODS of all sorts and then I found out that my case fan wasnt working at all so i replaced it and it is now functioning. Yesterday I got my first BSOD since I've gotten the fan about 2 weeks. Today i got about 6... all different ones and I updated my bios as well to see if that may be the problem but it wasn't. So I was wondering what to do ?

P.S.: im not really a Tech guy , I barely know anything about computers.
Please help.
 

A:Multiple BSODs

Case fan or CPU fan (fan in the middle of the motherboard)? If you can understand this info and post some minidumps... It would help us help you:
http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic51365.html

The hard drive and memory tests would be helpful too...

"I barely know anything about computers"...
Well lets see, you can change a fan and update motherboard bios. That's pretty good

I have booted up into regular mode with my user account and as an Administrator. Desktop icons load slowly (placeholder icons load right away, but the specific icons for the items load 1 evrey 5 seconds). I get a message about Zone Alarm being expired (not part of theproblem, but letting you know it executes Zone Alarm just before the BSOD occurs).

Safe mode is fine (I have even tweaked the registry to have sound during safe mode). Safe mode sucks though.

I have attached the 3 BSODs. I haven't analyzed them myself yet. My dump files exceed the size limit. - will convert to a format that is within limit and is readable.

Thank you.

All the dumps point to NTOSKRNL.exe... A very vague clue. Read and follow this advice to check the hard drive and memory:

It might help if you posted your complete computer specs, including the power supply and version of Windows

A:Weekly BSODs on new Dell XPS 15z, Win7 (x64)

Are you using K9 Web Protection? Do you know what a uTorrent program does? It opens up your computer to virus and malware infections fairly quickly

"I have a brand new laptop"...
I would strongly suggest that you perform a "destructive" factory restore on this new laptop

A:Occasional BSODs, Windows 7 Home Premium

The minidumps are flagging LVRS64.sys. The is a Logitech Quickcam driver. I see hard drive corruption too, so it would be wise to run a check on the C drive and test your memory while you are at it...

Hello,

I just did a fresh reformat and install of win7 on my desktop. I made sure to get all the updated drivers for all of my hardware, but I keep getting a BSOD randomly every few hours. I cannot successfully reproduce it by doing anything in particular, it seems to be entirely random.

I have attached two minidumps that I had to zip because they are both around 280 KB unzipped. I would really appreciate any help in narrowing down what might be causing this so that I can hopefully have a stable system.

Thanks

If this is the case, format the hard drive and re-install Windows fresh

A:Daily BSODs on Win7 Ent error BCCode: 4e

Hi r2d2xx welcome to TS,

the only thing i found in as an update to this is the following security update:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...A7-4858-4B6B-9C6D-A9F1EAE19B51&displaylang=en

however this is for Win XP with SP2 so im not sure if it works but i suppose yhu could try it

Other things to try:
===============
Run Memtest. Yhu can download this from the Downloads section on this site or visit www.memtest.org if yhu have any problems using it just ask

Also make sure that all yhur device drivers are up to date
