Q: BSOD while playing wow IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ntoskrnl.exe+7efc0

Hi,
I've been receiving BSODs over the last couple of months. It use to once a week but now on average is happening every 2-3 days
I'm generally web browsing in IE, with winamp playing and wow.
Just wondering if anyone can take a look and give me some suggestions.
Cheers.

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.)

Welcome

Are you using two antivirus programs?

I'm getting random Blue Screens and can't figure out why. I'm not running any hardcore programs. I'm mostly just using Microsoft Office and Firefox. The BSOD's seem to happen when I'm in Outlook, Excel or Firefox. Haven't been able to determine exactly which at the time as I'm moving back and forth between them quite often.

I've tried the SFC command and it didn't find anything. I used BlueScreenViewer but not a lot of help. All drivers for sound and video have been updated. I've also updated the firmware to the Crucial M4 SSD version 040H.

Any insight would be great.

Laptop - HP EliteBook 8560w
CPU - Intel i7-2670QM
RAM - Hynix/Hyundai 8.0 GB Ram

Video - AMD FirePro M5950
OS - Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

A:Random BSOD Reporting ntoskrnl.exe+75c40 & ntoskrnl.exe+7efc0

Update the firmware of your Crucial M4-CT256M4SSD2.

And, Uninstall McAfee Using McAfee Removal Tool. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Free up the startup.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus and touchpad driver SynTPEnh.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Let us know the results.

I keep getting a BSOD (Critical_Object_Termination) but have no idea what is causing the issue. I tried in vain to debug my own minidump files but ended up getting nowhere.

So far i have run MemTest over the weekend with 107 passes. I also ran Prime95 64-bit for 4 hours on each of the FFT tests without error.

I have enabled driver verifier (following the guide on this site) and this has not caused anynew BSOD's.

I also get a random BSOD on startup but it has happened so infrequently i have been unable to boot with disable automatic restart on system failure enabled to capture the stop code.

I really could do with some expert advice please.

This is my first post so i apologise if i have missed something important but i have tried to read as much info as possible before posting.

Hello! It's been two years since my last BSOD on my Lenovo Y580 laptop.

I have the latest nvidia drivers, and the iirc the latest drivers since I just re-imaged the laptop a month ago.

Specs of the Laptop:
Intel i7-3630QM
Nvidia GTX 660M + Intel HD4000 (Optimus)
1TB HDD
8GB RAM

I heard this might be either RAM related or software related, but my RAM has been working fine ever since I got this computer about 2-3 years ago.

Attached is the zip file.

Thanks!

There are some important files missing from your logs we need to read to get the full picture. Can you run the DM Log collector again and upload the new logs, it can take up to three times to grab all of the files.

The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.

Attached is the saved text file from Bluescreenviewer, usually I crash when playing games like TF2. It has never crashed from casual web surfing, and only started about 3 weeks ago. I was playing TF2 for about 4 hours earlier and it either BSODed with said info in the textfile, or froze while my game sounds stuttered.

I also realize that my psu may be a little underpowered for my current setup, but I can assure you ever since I upgraded my computer, it has not given me any problems.

Welcome aboard.

According to Carrona.org, STOP 0x0000007F: UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP
Usual causes: Memory corruption, Hardware (memory in particular), Overclocking failure, Installing a faulty or mismatched hardware (especially memory) or a failure after installing it, 3rd party firewall, Device drivers, SCSI/network/BIOS updates needed, Improperly seated cards, Incompatible storage devices, Overclocking, Virus scanner, Backup tool, Bad motherboard, Missing Service Pack

As your dumps are not giving adequate information, We may start with some point.

► Uninstall Daemon tools. It is a well known cause of BSOD crashes.

► Uninstall AVG. Uninstall Norton and all Symentec products too, using Norton Removal tool.Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner. Download and install those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

► Make some space free in C drive. As it is very little space left there.

► Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight, per RAM module per slot.

Is the computer in warranty? Let us know. Also let us know the results of these steps. If all failed, we will take another way, will think about the device drivers.

Hi all I wonder if someone can help me with this I've got a new April desktop Core i GB Ram Windows Pro bit OEM The computer starting blue screening soon after I got it and finally I lost patience and took it back to the shop They said that Windows was corrupt and did a reinstallation They ran lots of tests and claimed that all was OK on the hardware front Of course the moment I got it back it started blue screening again So far times this week I'm noticing a big increase in application unstability IE Thunderbird and Firefox have all crashed several times a day I've uninstalled my logitech webcam and removed the driver I've run mem test overnight and fur test Mem test passed and fur test ran fine I've done quite a few searches on the net for this problem seems to be quite common but haven't found anything that helps so far Can someone take a look and let me know their thoughts Much appreciated Kevin

Hi, Kevin, and welcome to the forum. Sorry that you are having problems.

To begin your troubleshooting, I recommend that you uninstall Kaspsersky using this removal tool: Tool. Kaspersky is know to cause BSOD's on some Win 7 systems. You can try it again once you get your system stable; but I do not recommend doing so. Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials and make sure Windows Firewall is turned on.

Hey guys, I just did a fresh install of windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my computer, but when I started it it constantly blue screened. I ran memtest, thinking that it was my memory, but I did one pass on them with no errors, testing individually, together and in different ram ports. After that, it gave me some BSOD's about my network drivers, which I fixed (hopefully) by installing manufacturer drivers. However, after this I meet another blue screen. The computer can boot into safe mode right now with no problems, but I get the blue screen either a few second after I log in normally or even before. I have attached the necessary dump files.
Thanks.

hi my laptop is frequently giving me bsod and i can't figure out why could someone help me

i attached my .dmp from sf diagnostic tool

A:BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ntoskrnl.exe

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
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.

The error that generates this bug check usually occurs after the installation of a faulty device driver, system service, or BIOS. If you encounter bug check 0xA while upgrading to a later version of Windows, this error might be caused by a device driver, a system service, a virus scanner, or a backup tool that is incompatible with the new version.

Run SFC /scannow from an elevated command prompt. Take special note that this may need to be run multiple times if there are uncorrectable errors on the first try. Report back on what's displayed on the console when you run SFC.

I also noticed that you may have some drivers that are out of date but need verification. The SFC above will test Windows corrupt drivers only.

A:BSOD Mostly ntoskrnl.exe IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Hi jasonsmith.

The BSODs are caused by the a Disc Filter Driver.

Code:
Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\stdflt.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for stdflt.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for stdflt.sys
Win32 Start Address stdflt (0xfffff88001d96ae4)
It is mostly used by Dell OEM, but may be obtained from any other program too. We cannot check the source of it as you did not followed the BSOD posting instructions properly .... some very important files are missing in your upload.

The necessary step about it depends on the originating source. So let us know ..... upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
Also Upload the list of all the third party drivers Using NirSoft DriverView :
Download and execute Driverview
View > Hide Microsoft Drivers
Edit > Select all
File > Save Selected Items
In the Save dialog, Set the path to desktop, Put "Driverview" in the name field, and save.
Zip the .txt file and upload it.
It will help us to decide the proper action on the failing module.

Hi,

First of all, don't use 3rd party driver applications to update your drivers as they are known to download / install buggy, incomplete, and outdated drivers. Always get your drivers if they are out of date from the manufacturers website of the piece of hardware in question.

All of the attached DMP files are of the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a) bugcheck:

Quote:




A kernel-mode driver or process attempted to access a protected memory location it does not have permission for, or a kernel interrupt request level (IRQL) attempted to access a memory address that is too high.

This bugcheck usually occurs when a driver uses an incorrect memory address. Other possible causes of this error include: bug in a device driver, system service, the BIOS, an old Anti-virus program or backup tool, or possibly memory issues.




1. Uninstall AVG and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials for troubleshooting purposes:

AVG removal - AVG | Download tools and utilities

MSE - Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows

If after removing and replacing AVG you're still crashing, enable Driver Verifier:

Driver Verifier:

Quote:




What is Driver Verifier?
Driver Verifier is included in Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 to promote stability and reliability; you can use this tool to troubleshoot driver issues. Windows kernel-mode components can cause system corruption or system failures as a result of an improperly written driver, such as an earlier version of a Windows Driver Model (WDM) driver.
Essentially, if there's a 3rd party driver believed to be at issue, enabling Driver Verifier will help flush out the rogue driver by flagging it and causing your system to BSOD.
Before enabling Driver Verifier, it is recommended to create a System Restore Point:
Vista - START | type rstrui - create a restore point
Windows 7 - START | type create | select "Create a Restore Point"
How to enable Driver Verifier:
Start > type "verifier" without the quotes > Select the following options -
1. Select - "Create custom settings (for code developers)"
2. Select - "Select individual settings from a full list"
3. Check the following boxes -
- Special Pool
- Pool Tracking
- Force IRQL Checking
- Deadlock Detection
- Security Checks (Windows 7)
- Concurrentcy Stress Test (Windows 8)
- DDI compliance checking (Windows 8)
- Miscellaneous Checks
4. Select - "Select driver names from a list"
5. Click on the "Provider" tab. This will sort all of the drivers by the provider.
6. Check EVERY box that is NOT provided by Microsoft / Microsoft Corporation.
7. Click on Finish.
8. Restart.
Important information regarding Driver Verifier:
- If Driver Verifier finds a violation, the system will BSOD.
- After enabling Driver Verifier and restarting the system, depending on the culprit, if for example the driver is on start-up, you may not be able to get back into normal Windows because Driver Verifier will flag it, and as stated above, that will cause / force a BSOD.
If this happens, do not panic, do the following:
- Boot into Safe Mode by repeatedly tapping the F8 key during boot-up.
- Once in Safe Mode - Start > type "system restore" without the quotes.
- Choose the restore point you created earlier.
If you did not set up a restore point, do not worry, you can still disable Driver Verifier to get back into normal Windows:
- Start > Search > type "cmd" without the quotes.
- To turn off Driver Verifier, type in cmd "verifier /reset" without the quotes.
- Restart and boot into normal Windows.
How long should I keep Driver Verifier enabled for?
It varies, many experts and analysts have different recommendations. Personally, I recommend keeping it enabled for at least 36-48 hours. If you don't... Read more

A:BSOD: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL caused by ntoskrnl.exe

I've tried a few things to alleviate the problem.
I've uninstalled, fences(visual program for making the desktop disappear), and I've installed a more current graphics driver. That was a bad idea since my screen started glitching. So then I opted to just remove the graphics driver and see if that would solve my issues.

I left it on over night and it still crashed. Actually, while i slept it crashed 5 more times. Talk about a major nightmare.

I don't know if it will make a difference but I removed the battery and I'm just leaving it plugged into the AC chord.

What else can I do?

edit:
removed Daemon Tools

Hey,

I am getting a BSOD since one week randomly with the message IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. BlueScreen Viewer showes me, that it is caused by the driver ntoskrnl.exe. Before I got this BSOD I updated my Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.1.1 . Since this time, this error happens randomly!

My system specs are the following:

Laptop: Asus S400 CA
CPU: Intel Core I5 3317 U @ 1,70 GHz
Memory: 8 GB
Graphics: Intel HD Grpahics 4000
Mainbord: Asustek S400 CA
Antivirus: Avast! Internet Security (Version: 140512-0)

Before I got this IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR _EQUAL error I also got the BSOD Driver_Power_State_Failure. I figured out, that it might be the Bluetooth Driver, as buescreenviewer stated the driver causing the error is btfilter.sys.

I attached also a SF Diagnostic Tool File!

I would be glad and happy about some help, since BSOD?s are annoying

Thank you very much

Cheers Fabi

Hi All,

I have found multiple helpful answers on this forum regarding similar situations yet none that seems to apply to mine specifically.

Though I'm sure my dumps will be more helpful than I could ever be, here's what I noticed:

1. the installation of a new external drive (hp 2TB) seems to increase bsod occurences

2. there seems to be a problem with how my ram is getting used as I can always predict a crash when I go past 9 gig (out of 16).

3. I also read a post which suggested to remove Kaspersky. I'm not using it yet I do have BidDefender running.

I did run Windows Memory Diagnostics which didn't find any problems.
Thanks for your help as I've wasted 2 days with no results whatsoever on my own...

Seb.

All the crashes were memory corruption. It is either a driver or bad RAM. Start off by testing your RAM

Code:

Remove Daemon Tools. It causes BSOD

I believe this belongs to your EVGA software. Please remove as it has problems running in Windows 7

Another one of these. I have checked through the forums and can't find a solution. Usually I'm fine with BSOD and can solve but this has stumped me a bit.

Could someone a little more experienced take a look and see what could possibly be the problem?

I've attached Perfmon report and Minidumps.

Many Thanks
Nat

Welcome to TSF,

ssp.exe is more than likely the faulting application i believe its apart of SpyStopper Pro?
Either make sure its up-to-date or remove it for testing purposes.
But i also noticed that the module thats required for the SpyStopper to function was unloaded at the time of the crash.

While waiting for a reply:

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests (located at this link: Hardware Diagnostics ). They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:

Quote:




H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
Hard Drive Diagnostics (read the details at the link) - Test ALL of the hard drives.

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Free Online AntiMalware Resources (read the details at the link)
There are also free, bootable antivirus disks at this link: Free Online AntiMalware Resources - Bootable Disks




Also, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

Lately, my PC has been blue-screening after shutdown. Never during anything, but once I hit shutdown, it logs off, shuts down, and then just before I would expect all the case lights to turn off, I get an irql_not_less_or_equal ntoskrnl.exe BSOD.

From what I've gathered from Google, this is a driver issue, and the only help offered was nonspecific. I'm supposed to turn off all drivers and turn them on one by one, restarting in between, until I find the offender.

Considering the sheer number of drivers on this PC, as well as the time involved in turning on each one individually, I was hoping to get some help reading the dumpfiles for anything to point me in the right direction.

Attached is the .zip of the DM Log Collector.

A:BSOD on shutdown, irql_not_less_or_equal ntoskrnl.exe

Hi Rufus2468.

The crash dumps are pointing to avast! Antivirus Stream Filter driver.

Uninstall Avast using Avast Uninstall Utility. At least as a test. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Report us for any further BSOD.

Hey guys
I was recently having BSOD Problems and a super glitchy problem until I received help on this forum and deleted my Avira antivirus, which sped my computer up back to normal. Now im having BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL problems.
Any help with this would be appreciated, I have attached a dump file rar. How do you read through those to identify the problem by the way? Would like to know how to do this myself if possible

Thanks alot

Hi rosette,

Welcome to the 8forums.
The most recent dump file dates from last month, do you have any dump files that are more recent?

Besides of that, it looks like the network driver is the cause.

Code:
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for athrx.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for athrx.sys


If you have a laptop, visit your manufacturer and update the network driver.
If you have a desktop, visit Driver Reference Table - athwbx.sys and update the network driver.
(Not a direct link to the company of the network driver, because of some possible important information)

Hello forum,

please help me out. I've bought a new Laptop last week and since two days ago I'm running into BSODs, random reboots and random shutdowns (no error prompt whatsoever in these cases).

What I did so far:
Windows Memory Diagnostic. No errors
chkdsk with parameters frx params. No errors
Linx Cpu stresstest: No errors
Furmark up to 80 degree celsius: No errors

As far as I know there were errors related to something called 'nvStreamUserAgent.exe'. I deactivated the corresponding service now.

I've installed the Panda Free Antivirus program, which seems to be known to cause BSODS if the process url monitor is enabled. But this was supposed to be fixed like a year ago. I disabled this feature for now. (Panda says no virus detected)

DM Log Collection file in Attachments.

Would be glad for any help!

Hello adventuretime,

Welcome to the TenForums

A much better memory test is to run the Memtest86+ Please look at the tutorial and read all through it. The test can take a long time to run all eight passes and it would be worth leaving it running overnight as you have 8GB to test.

A:[SOLVED] BSOD irql_not_less_or_equal ntoskrnl.exe

Hi,

All of the attached DMP files are of the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a) bug check.

This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.

This bug check is issued if paged memory (or invalid memory) is accessed when the IRQL is too high. The error that generates this bug check usually occurs after the installation of a faulty device driver, system service, or BIOS.

The instruction we fail on is the same in every crash dump:


Code:

Hello.
I have BSOD almost constantly appearing during system startup (after reset ONLY and very rarely on random occasions, it doesn't happen when PC comes back from hibernation / sleep mode).
I'm saying almost constantly because sometimes it BSOD's 20 times in a row and eventually after multiple resets it stops and I can use my PC for next couple days (up until next system reset).
There is no particular time in startup when it happens, sometimes after or before windows loading screen, sometimes couple seconds after desktop has been loaded.

Mostly it is IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL) error, but couple times I had another one: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION at netio.sys.
SF Diagnostic attached.

Any help apreciated, PC is my main work tool and this particular one is quite essential for my company

The lock bts instruction is used to perform a atomic Bit Test and Set operation, which stops any hardware interrupts, interrupting the processor and reading or writing to the same location.

I believe nt!MiReplenishPageSlist is used to update a singly linked list, this since it's a Memory Manager Internal function, and therefore won't be documented. My assumption is based upon two facts, there's a data structure called by Windows to represent the list header of a singly linked list called _SLIST_HEADER, and because of the Assembly instruction called lock bts.

I'm new here, so please let me know if I'm doing something wrong.

This BSOD started a few days ago, and happens several times a day now. After some debugging I placed the blame on the recently installed Windows 10 Insider Preview build, so I decided to reinstall Windows 10 (clean install). Unfortunately, the BSOD is still happening. I still have minidumps from before the reinstall, but I decided not to include them because they might clutter up the data? Let me know if you need them.

Since I thought the bsods were pointing at my graphics driver, I decided to install the latest one directly from the Intel Download Center (before I had the Microsoft one). I'm not sure yet if the updated graphics driver has solved the issue since I only just updated the driver.

Let me know if you need more details, and thanks in advance for the work you guys do!

Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.
I recommend to install a genuine copy of Windows.
If, after you have installed a genuine copy of Windows, you still get BSOD's we'll be happy to assist you.

6 months ago I was experiencing an issue with BSOD as well but when I resitted the memory the issue has disappeared, I do not have mini dumps from 6 months ago.

A:Windows 7 - BSOD: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL with ntoskrnl.exe

NOTE: I have severe eye problems. If I do not respond to your postings, please PM another staff member for assistance.

Please stop highlighting stuff as "IMPORTANT" as it's nearly impossible to read with my eyes (I use the Windows 7 High Contrast mode)

PERFMON reports that the driver for your SATA controller isn't installed. Please visit the Alienware support site and download/install this driver. AFAIK, this is the RR252x SATA Controller made by Silicon Image (PCI\\VEN_1095&DEV_3132)

There is just one memory dump in the uploaded attachment. In many cases the system will fix itself after this, so my recommendation is to keep an eye on it to see if this happens.

If you're not that patient (I'm not!), then here's some other suggestions.....

MSINFO32 reports many application crashes with rage.exe and xrEngine.exe. Please ensure that you have the latest version of all files and patches for these programs.

The BSOD reports that the crash occurred in one of the drivers for the video sub-system. As such the problem could be with the video drivers or the video hardware (but overheating, security software and networking drivers/hardware can also be causes).

Although you appear to have the latest video drivers, I'd suggest uninstalling them. Then download and install a fresh copy from the ATI website (to help rule out any possible corruption of the driver(s)).

I'd also run the following free video stress tests to see what it shows:

FurMark download site: FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
NOTE: Set the alarm to go off at 90?C. Then watch the system from that point on. If the system doesn't display a temperature, watch it constantly and turn it off at the first sign of video problems. DO NOT leave it it unmonitored, it can DAMAGE your video card!!!
If the temperature gets above 100?C, quit the test - the video card is overheating.
- Click "Quit" to exit

Prime95 download site: Free Software - GIMPS
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight please run the "Small FFTs" test instead. (run all 3 if you find a problem and note how long it takes to error out with each)
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
Monitor the CPU temperature and DON'T let it exceed 85?C. If it does, then you probably have a CPU cooling problem.
This won't necessarily crash the system - but check the output in the test window for errors.
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.

Hello
I'm using an acer aspire 7739G laptop windows 7 x64 and began getting BSODS very recently while playing Dota 2. I first thought it has to do with a custom configuration I did, but I got a BSOD in a different older game and that raised my suspicions. I'm not sure what's causing them, there's not much stuff I installed since I began getting this BSODs. I attach the minidumps (3) I got. I also viewed them with Blue Screen View, but I'm not sure of the correct "interpretation".

Please ask about any further details you require and I will add a new post or edit this one. Thanks... sorry for my newbieness.

Hello, i've been having a BSOD problem for a fair while. I'm not very good at debugging thse things and was wondering if anyone can help:

Most of the time the crash seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe program, with various errors such as: IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL, KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED & CLOCK WATCHDOG TIMEOUT.

My system runs on Home Premium x64 (OEM,Original OS)
The system is around 10months old.

Thank You for your time.

Hi, Jay, and welcome to the forum. While I am looking at your files, here is some reading on your bugcheck 101 error.

http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...tml#post567135

http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tml#post356791

I looked at your three latest dumps. One is bugcheck 1E and the other two are bugcheck A. One directly blames hardware; the other two blame a Windows system core file, which is highly unlikely to be the real cause.
both of these reference memory.

Since no specific cause is given, you are going to have to troubleshoot. I suggest you start this process by downloading and installing Revo Uninstaller (free). Use Revo to uninstall Trusteer Rapport. Rapport is known to cause BSOD's on many Win 7 systems. Here is some reading on this subject:

Online Banking Security | Trusteer,

MPECS Inc. Blog: Windows 7 BSODs – RapportPG64.sys is the Culprit

Next, I recommend that you download and install Microsoft Security Essentials. MSE supersedes Windows Defender. It offers better protection and runs well with Win 7. Defender is known to cause conflicts with Win 7. MSE will turn off Defender; you don't need to do anything other than install MSE.

You have three out of date drivers loaded on your system. Outdated drivers can and do cause memory corruption and BSOD's. Update these drivers through the links provided.

Sounds like bad RAM to me, you have Driver Verifier enabled and it still hasn't picked anything up.

Run Memtest86 for at least 8 passes so we get enough information to confirm that your RAM isn't failing

Ok, so I started getting this problem recently, & ran through a lot of my own troubleshooting steps. So far nothing seems to be proving more than a temporary fix.

I ran a memtest overnight, got no errors back on my RAM at all. Scanned for viruses, got one or two minor adware programs which I removed. Still experienced BSOD, Did a system restore, and the problem still persists.

Anyone know of a fix for this issue? Here's some additional info if it will help:
 

A:How can I resolve this Vista x64 BSOD - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - ntoskrnl.exe

That error code and the other codes in your jpg attachments means you are looking at driver issues.

A significant number are 0x0000009F: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE
A driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state. Typically occurs during events that involve power state transitions, such as shutting down, or moving into or out of standby or hibernate mode.

From what I read in Bluescreenview, I'm getting IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and ntoskrnl.exe or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and notoskrnl.exe errors.

Seems to happen most when a user logs off.

Besides that, I cannot run the perfmon /report command, it gives me a 'operator or administrator has refused the request' error. If someone has a hint on how to fix that?

The servers are running on Vmware 5.5, HP DL360 Gen8 ESX Servers. Vmnetx3 adapters. Nothing out of the ordinary. I'm suspecting McAfee or FlaconStor (backup) driver issues, but cannot find the cause.

It would appriciate the help, if anyone has the time :)

A:Windows 2012 R2 BSOD - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ntoskrnl.exe

The Perform result command still bugged, but got the report.html from the system folder, so attaching it now.

Will run the driver verifier tonight, when users are logged off. I'll exlude the specified server for new connections, so driver verifier can continue tomorrow morning.

The Windows 2012 R2 is a datacenter version.

The Graphics Card does not look like if it has support for Windows 7. Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
If uninstalling the drivers seem to have the BSOD disappear - then you will need to find a new GPU.

Also, please update these...

   Note
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference

Hi,

I"m seeing lots of memory corruption, no specific dumps pointing to any obvious software or driver issues at this time. You mentioned you ran Memtest86+ for 5 passes. Although a tad annoying, I would recommend running it again for no less than ~8 passes. This will take quite some time, so I recommend doing so before work or sleep, and checking when you get home or wake up.

Might just be a coincidence at the time of crash, but a 3B dump mentions nvlddmkm.sys which is the nVidia video driver. I would recommend updating to the latest nVidia drivers if you haven't already, and if you are on any beta release drivers, please rollback to the latest NON-BETA driver.

See if there are updates for the following drivers:

CBDisk - Wed Jan 13 04:15:47 2010 - CBDisk.sys

(CallbackDisk Virtual Storage Driver)

dc3d - Wed May 18 04:07:24 2011 - dc3d.sys

(Filter Driver for Identification of Microsoft Hardware Wireless Mouse and Keyboard Device Models - Microsoft IntelliType Pro / IntelliPoint).

HECIx64 - Thu Sep 22 12:38:44 2011 - HECIx64.sys

(Intel Management Engine Interface)

While you're on that journey, ensure your BIOS is updated to the latest version as well as any other drivers via Asus' website.

Regards,

Patrick

Kernel-Power 41 simply means the PC was powered down manually either by the user unplugging the power or pushing the reset power button.

I ran 7 of the dumps all show being caused by NETIO.SYS which is a Windows networking driver, it appears to me it's calling for a stop because of interference from your Emsisoft Firewall program(fwwfp764.sys), try disabling it and using windows firewall.

Installed today quite lot things, but it happened when playing Starcraft 2, and i had Intel extreme tuning utility, HD 4000 OCed from 1150Mhz to 1300 which accordingly to Overclocking Intel’s HD 4000 | SemiAccurate should be stable.
Then i disabled it, running at standard 1150mhz played around 2-3missions, then exactly at the end when i saw the battleship and the game loading onto next level it did BSOD again, is this game related?

To be able to help you, we'd need you to attach a full report. This includes, sys$list, nfo etc. To get these files, use our thread below.

http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

BSOD Analyse

Looking at your bugcheck it's likely that a memory corruption event was triggered. Though a driver could be causing the memory to be borked, but we're usually suggesting a memory test before moving forward. Do a scan with Memtest86+. Memtest is a scanner that'll check your sticks for errors.



   Warning
Note that the below instructions may break your WARRANTY rules. If you're unsure check manuals, separated warranty papers, stickers on computer for secure permission.

To ensure that we'll know if it's the slots on the motherboard that's broken, or the sticks itself - we have a little procedure we'll recommend. Remove 1 stick, scan the other with Memtest in the current slot. After 7 passes, move the stick to another slot and scan, and so on and so forth until you've scanned all the sticks, and all the slots, one by one.

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

Later we'll be able to tell if this has been game related. Once I get the rest of the files, I'll have a clear look.

Best Regards,
Frederik.

Hi

I have a 1 week old Gigabyte P55W laptop. The only programs I have installed are some games (Steam or Origin), Skype, Avast and CCleaner. Today I turned on my laptop and got the BSOD message 'windows encountered an error...'. The BSOD error was 'IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL'.

Following some advice I saw after a quick search I downloaded BlueScreenView and saw the error was related to ntoskrnl.exe. I have attached the dump file run by following the instructions in the Sticky on this forum. I would be very grateful for any advice - it's kind of concerning that a brand new, supposedly high end laptop is having blue screen crashes after 1 week.

Many thanks

I have come here quite often to figure out problems, but this the first time I've needed to create a profile to seek help.

As the title states this issue has only happened while Star Citizen is updating and applying patches. I've recreated the issue twice. I ran sfc /scannow three times which none of them detected any errors. I also have ran memtest a few months back for several passes which also detected zero errors. I have ran Intel burn test for over 10 passes without issue. I have ran chkdsk multiple times on both my ssd where my os resides and my raid for storage without errors.


I believe I have all the necessary files within the zip both the dumps and texts files. Any assistance will be appreciated.

Hi,

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)

This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.


Code:

1: kd> .trap 0xfffff880089cd8c0
NOTE: The trap frame does not contain all registers.
Some register values may be zeroed or incorrect.
rax=0000000000000002 rbx=0000000000000000 rcx=fffff88002f00180
rdx=fffffa800b072fe0 rsi=0000000000000000 rdi=0000000000000000

fffff800`032dbe52 488b3f mov rdi,qword ptr [rdi] ds:00000000`00000000=????????????????
Failure moving the contents of the rdi register into rdi, this makes no sense of course.

1. In your loaded drivers list, dtsoftbus01.sys is listed which is the Daemon Tools driver. Daemon Tools is a very popular cause of BSOD's in 7/8 based systems. Please uninstall Daemon Tools. Alternative imaging programs are: MagicISO, Power ISO, etc.

2. Uninstall KProcessHacker as it's likely conflicting with TrueCrypt.

3.


Code:

1: kd> lmvm auuzplzn

No idea what this driver is, and there's no documentation regarding it. Run a Malwarebytes free scan:

Recently my computer has been BSOD while playing games, and when that doesn't happen my programs stop working. I'm constantly getting "This program has stopped working," and it's not necessarily just games that stop working either, however the BSOD is generally while gaming. My computer is fairly new (~6 months old) and was running perfectly until about a month ago when this started happening. At first it was less frequently, and only seemed to happen while playing Dota 2 but now my entire computer seems to be messing up.

Hello everyone,

I have a new computer since May and have been experiencing BSOD since August.
It crashes when I play video games, and I get some BSOD such as IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (but the last I got was the first one).
Sometimes I get a BSOD when I start the computer : DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION but when I restart my computer everything run smoothly.

I really hope that you can help me, because if it's becoming pretty annoying

Hello. I was receiving the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD message for the past couple of days and it first started when I was playing SW:TOR. I just recently clean installed. I have about 7 mini dumps since the first time it happened including 2 minidumps today, all the same bsod message. I've cleaned my computer as well as ran driver verifier for most of these bsod messages.

I hope that these minidumps can pinpoint the problem. Thank you.

How To Find Drivers:




Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.


- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads
Please run verifier to find which one is causing this

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

Driver verifier






Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point... Read more

A:BSOD when playing games, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Hi sinisterideals.

First, free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

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 show 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 have playing BSOD (ntkrnlmp.exe) games IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - been seeing intermittent BSOD's for the last couple of months now whilst playing games BSOD playing games - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (ntkrnlmp.exe) always IRQL NOT BSOD playing games - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (ntkrnlmp.exe) LESS OR EQUAL message codes but never any more information I've read that this is usually caused by bad drivers accessing invalid memory but I can't determine which driver is causing the problem I've tried my hand at debugging the minidump file but this isn't my forte I'm hoping someone on here might be able to make more progress It did seem to be happening with 'older' games initially do I thought it might have been a DirectX issue as I seem to recall that windows doesn't directly support dx but it's also started happening on newer games also The component at fault is reported as 'ntkrnlmp exe' but I'm guessing that is not the real culprit A couple of weeks ago I backed up data from my desktop to my laptop and fresh installed windows as I had previously been on an upgraded versions from but the blue screens have returned which I reckon either means windows is automatically installing a bad driver or something else is driving it to fault When I restarted my PC after the last blue screen my BIOS errored reporting that the CPU temp was too high When I got a new cpu months ago I did have to scrape off and re-apply thermal paste to re-use my radiator so there's a chance I didn't do that as well as I could have - Before I go re-applying the paste I just wanted to know if it was possible for cpu overheat to cause this kind of BSOD - it looks to be a software issue Thanks any help in this matter is very much appreciated and any more details required I can provide Fraser

A:[SOLVED] BSOD 0xA - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL while playing TitanFall

Hi,

The attached DMP file is of the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a) bug check.

This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.

This bug check is issued if paged memory (or invalid memory) is accessed when the IRQL is too high. The error that generates this bug check usually occurs after the installation of a faulty device driver, system service, or BIOS.

------------

1. Uninstall Asus PC Probe ASAP.

2. Are you using OpenVPN/COMODO?

Regards,

Patrick

I have been experiencing multiple crashes from a few different games. The one most prominent is Dragon Age: Origins where it crashes once it starts. I have a 50/50 crash rate on other games like Hearthstone and Smite. It only crashes when a game is being played and only when the game is being booted. Some games have never caused a BSOD like League of Legends and Fallout NV. These crashes have happened for a few years now but since this computer was a backup I really never minded it much until it became my main PC for now.

Hello, so i've been getting BSOD's constantly when I play any graphically intense games. I have a pretty good video card and it never over heats so I know it's not that it get's too hot.

I am running the nVidia Beta driver 285.38 (needed for Battlefield 3 beta).

Running:
Win7 64-bit Professional
Full retail version.
Recently re-installed. (a month ago)
Hardware is a month old. Recently upgraded everything.
GPU: MSI GTX560 TI Twin Frozr II .

This only happens in game, and I'm uncertain as to why. the video card is brand-new, i just got it 2 weeks ago and it's worked with every other game up till now.

I'm going to be running MEMTEST 4.2 tonight and post my results tomorrow.

attached are my reports and DUMP files.

Please help sevenforums, you're my only hope.

Combination of things

1-You obviously upgraded because you have drivers from as far back as 2005. They need to be updated.


Code:
RTCore64.sys 5/25/2005 2:39:12 AM fffff880`08881000 fffff880`08887000 0x00006000 0x42941d90

How To Find Drivers:




Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.


- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

2-Your crashes appear to be caused by several things but I cant be sure till you update the drivers. The most recent one was caused by DirectX (your video driver). I would start by re-installing the driver with the newest available using this method.

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using

Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

After the above I would run these two tests
1-Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

2-Driver verifier

Only one memory dump in the enclosed reports. If you are using a disk cleanup utility, please don't use it while we're troubleshooting.

You have a TP-LINK 150Mbps Wireless N Adapter. Win7 doesn't like these devices, and if you're using a Vista-era driver with it it's sure to start spitting out BSOD's. Here's my rant about these devices:





Quote:
I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Win7 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.


SSD's must have the latest firmware installed, and you must have the latest controller drivers (for your motherboard) from the manufacturer of the controller that's on you motherboard (not from the motherboard manufacturer).
Here's my rant on these devices:
We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:





Quote:
There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
- Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard!
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.-
Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.
It's my opinion that SSD's aren't reliable enough (with current hardware) to be used on a system that needs to work reliably. Until I see reliability I will not recommend, nor will I use, SSD's for critical applications.

HI, I have this problem for a while since upgrading to Win 10 ( free forced upgrade from Win 7 ) It got quite annoying so I did a free install of Win10 to ensure it wasn't old driver etc causing issues left behind from Win 7. I was playing WoW free trail and computer crashed no freeze up just straight to BSOD. Funny thing was that after the fresh OS install I hadn't had a crash or lockup for at least 24h. I used WhoCrashed to find out more and it says the files ntoskrnl.exe and ntkrnlmp.exe crashed at the same time.

Run Memtest86+ for least 7-8 passes, and preferrly overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

Run Driver Verifier to check for corrupted drivers which may be causing crashes, run the program for least 24 hours, and if a BSOD occurs before this time period, then stop test and upload the subsequent .dmp file.Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Hi,

Been getting BSOD recently when playing BF4 though it sometimes crashes when I'm not in BF4 too, is it memory issue?

Files attached.

Thanks!

Hello, Squirel and welcome to the forums. I will try to help you with this. First,I need you to do a couple of things.

Please fill out your System Specs


   Information
Your System Specs will help us to help you, and doing it in this manner will make them available to all helpers in every post and keep us from hunting for them. We ask that you fill them out in as much detail as possible including Desktop or Laptop, Model number if it is an OEM computer and all components with the Manufacturer and Model number if possible.

If you will go to your last post and click the 'System Specs' in the bottom left of the post, you will find a link to update your system specs. Please fill those out in as much detail as possible, making sure to click save at the bottom of the page. If you would like to know what we would like, you can click 'My System Specs' at the bottom left of this post to see mine. If you do not know what your components are, this will help you accomplish this task. System Info - See Your System Specs
You only had 2 dump files which is what we use to debug with. Both dump files had different error codes, but listed basically the same cause.


Code:
KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR (7a)
The requested page of kernel data could not be read in. Typically caused by
a bad block in the paging file or disk controller error. Also see
KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR.
If the error status is 0xC000000E, 0xC000009C, 0xC000009D or 0xC0000185,
it means the disk subsystem has experienced a failure.
If the error status is 0xC000009A, then it means the request failed because
a filesystem failed to make forward progress.
Arguments:
Arg1: fffff6fc50068280, lock type that was held (value 1,2,3, or PTE address)
Arg2: ffffffffc000000e, error status (normally i/o status code)
Arg3: 000000002c581880, current process (virtual address for lock type 3, or PTE)
Arg4: fffff8a00d050034, virtual address that could not be in-paged (or PTE contents if arg1 is a PTE address)

ERROR_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc000000e - A device which does not exist was specified.
DISK_HARDWARE_ERROR: There was error with disk hardware


Code:
CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION (f4)
A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been
terminated.
Several processes and threads are necessary for the operation of the
system; when they are terminated (for any reason), the system can no
longer function.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000003, Process
Arg2: fffffa800e686670, Terminating object
Arg3: fffffa800e686950, Process image file name

An I/O error is typically a hard drive

Your hard drive is apparently showing errors or has failed/is failing.

I don't know what hard drive(s) you have, because of no system specs. But I would suggest you backup all personal data to an external source, first thing. I would then run Seatools for DOS on all Mechanical Hard drives, Internal and external (SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use)

Please let me know the results of the test.

Hey guys I m here to explain you guys my problem BSOD (ntoskrnl.exe) when playing. particularly so about a year ago I bought a Radeon that worked fine at the beginning but then started failing until I had to replace it got another one same model computer didn t even boot when it was on its place Now I got a third one and at first it worked fine but I have some flickering squares on my screen which for some reason BSOD particularly when playing. (ntoskrnl.exe) disappear when I m in a full screen game but what is bothering BSOD particularly when playing. (ntoskrnl.exe) me the most is the constant BSOD particuarly when playing League Of Legends I know this has nothing to do with the game because it happens even when I m browsing the Internet but it happens more often while playing What I also find interesting is that flickering squares only happen some time after the computer has been on After checking out the crashes with BlueScreenViewer it seems that all of the dates the crashes occurred are wrong I have no idea why but I can see most are being caused by ntoskrnl exe and by Windows NT Hope you guys can help me out Gonna upload my minidump folder below Since the dates of the reports are wrong I have no idea of what I was doing at that moment but I guess most crashes must be because of a similar issue I m getting currently about crashes a day sometimes even more and since League Of Legends is a team based game if you leave you are punished and I have been banned twice now I am really desperate for your help thank you OS Version Microsoft Windows Home Premium Service Pack bit Processor Intel R Core TM i - CPU GHz Intel Family Model Stepping Processor Count RAM Mb Graphics Card AMD Radeon HD Series - Mb Hard Drives C Total - MB Free - MB Motherboard Dell Inc Y MRG Antivirus None What I find weird is how my GPU s memory always shows a negative number and only shows - instead of the it s supposed to have right And my RAM is supposed to be gb Windows says only GB are usable is that a weird number Thanks for your help guys P S If mods feel this isn t at the right place feel free to move it please it s my first post in the forums and I m not that much of a tech guy nbsp

Hello all,

Relative computer noob that somehow built his own computer a few years ago lol. Recently I have been getting the dreaded BSOD almost everytime I play BF3, and I am finally deciding to try to get some help on the matter. The causes seem to vary however I've noticed that ntoskrnl.exe seems to be the culprit more often than not. Again, I'm somewhat of a computer noob so I'm not too sure what to really make of all the dmp files, to say I'm confused would be a huge understatement. I've uploaded my dmp file with this post, and if anyone could chime in on what I should do I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

Hi deltax,

Majority of the crashes seem to be caused by the 'ntkrnlmp.exe' driver.

SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000007e)
This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem. Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003. This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG. This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG. This will let us see why this breakpoint is
happening.

I've been crashing for a couple of months now and it's usually been while playing Dota Around the time the crashes started I overclocked my cpu but once while DOTA BSOD playing ntoskrnl.exe 2, I realized it was unstable I lowered the clock and the voltages The problem doesn't seem to be heat as I completely cleaned out my case and parts just a few days ago with a can of compressed air What I'm going to do next is go back to default voltages for my CPU NB and see if that stops the crashing Uploaded are all of my logs System specs for convenience Computer type PC Desktop Computer Manufacturer Model Number Custom build OS Windows Home Premium x CPU amd phenom ii x Motherboard gigabyte ga- a-usb Memory Kingston HyperX GB single stick Graphics Card s Geforce Ti Sound Card N A Monitor s Displays N A Screen Resolution N A Hard Drives Seagate gb PSU watt Case N A Cooling N A Keyboard N A Mouse N A Internet Speed N A Antivirus NOD Browser Firefox Other Info N A

A:BSOD while playing DOTA 2, ntoskrnl.exe

If stopping over clocking does not seem to help with the problem please do the following:

Update your Bios updates can be found on the motherboard manufacturers website.

Run memtest86+ for at least 8 passes: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Run the following commands:






Quote:
SFC.EXE /SCANNOW
Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
At the top of the search box, right click on the cmd.exe and select "Run as adminstrator"
In the black window that opens, type "SFC.EXE /SCANNOW" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Let the program run and post back what it says when it's done.


then from the same command prompt issue the following to check for disk corruption:
Code:
chkdsk /r /f
and lastly please enable driver verifier and allow it ot crash your computer then post the new dump files her the way you did before:

Driver Verifier

If you can not boot normally after enabling verifier please boot into safe mode and disable verifier from safe mode.

I play Battlefield 3 for anywhere from 5-25 minutes and get a BSOD

I attached the minidumps.

A:BSOD while playing Battlefield 3, ntoskrnl.exe

Please provide this info for a more complete analysis: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

Driver Verifier is turned on and it's purpose is to cause BSOD's. Please turn it off - the BSOD's will either stop or decrease in frequency.

To do this, launch Verifier.exe
Select "Delete existing settings" and click on Finish
Reboot to complete the operation.

You have both nVidia and ATI video drivers installed - why is this? Please uninstall the one that you're not using.

We have seen numerous problems with the USB XBox controller. Please uninstall it's software and remove the device from your system. Then test to see if it stops the BSOD's.

AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems. If you choose to uninstall the AMD/ATI video drivers this step may not be necessary.





Quote:
Please uninstall all AMD/ATI video stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program
Then, download and install a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from http://www.ati.com (in the upper right corner of the page)
- Select the "Custom" installation option and don't let it install AMD OverDrive or the VISION Engine Control Center (if present)
Then use the ATI uninstall manager to uninstall the Catalyst Control Center (CCC). This is a separate issue and isn't required for the AMD OverDrive removal.

If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Uninstall". Reboot for changes to take affect.


Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.

If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions).
Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

Some free alternatives (I don't use them, so I can't comment on them)
KernSafe iSCSI initiator, Virtual CD/DVD-RW Emulator, Virtual Encryption Disk and Virtual CD/DVD-ROM Emulator All-in-One free software.
MagicISO - Convert BIN to ISO, Create, Edit, Burn, Extract ISO file, ISO/BIN converter/extractor/editor

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs
