Preferred Solution: BSOD 0x124, and random lockups

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.)

If u are running a 32bit OS 4 gigs of mem. will give no increase of anything over 2 gigs of mem. & with u placing the slower mem. in all will run slower.

A:Random BSOD 0x124

Hello and welcome to the forums cestlavie098, I took a look at your files, and so you know a 0x124 BSOD indicates either a Bios bug or a hardware error. So first things first, check the computer manufacturers website for Bios updates. then once you have updated the bios please run Prime95:

Free Software - GIMPS





Quote:
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 you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead.
- "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).
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.


Also when running prime 95 be sure to use HWinfo to keep an eye on your temperatures:






Quote:
Download and install HWINFO64 (I run Windows 7 Ultimate x64). Open HWINFO, and when prompted, check the Sensor Only option and then run as shown below:


HWINFO will read your system, and then open the Sensor Status panel. Locate the CPU Digital Thermal Sensor items, as shown below:


Take note of the current temperatures when the system is idling, and ensure that there is a differential between the system idle temperature and maximum CPU operating temperature in excess of 20 degrees Celcius

Warning
Ensure that you are operating in the same units of temperature measurement! If your CPU maximum temperature is quoted in Celcius, make 100% sure HWINFO is also reporting in Celcius. Do not mix Celcius with Farenheit. Use the Configure button in HWINFO to change temperature units if neccessary.

Hey guys,

I am currently putting up a new system and trying to determine what the cause of my BSOD is. I am running an

Ballistix 8GB DDR3 - 1600 OR Mushkin Enchanced 8GB 2X4GB PC3-10666 DDR3-1333 9-9-9-24 Dual Channel

3 TB WD Green
60 GB OCZ Agility 3
2 500GB WD Blue
1 TB Seagate Barracuda
Not running any RAID
APEVIA 700W

I attached my dump file, i was using kernel dump not mini dumps, i changed it to mini dumps just now. I currently removed all non essential HDD and am just running my SSD alone. Hoping to recreate the dump if not it could be narrowed down to PSU OR HDD.

Thanks for your time.

I'm getting a random BSOD with the error code 0x124. This is just after formatting and reinstalling windows on my ssd. I'm attaching my .dmp file, so you can take a look. It's hal.dll that is causing the issue.

So I started getting random BSOD overnight about 4 days ago from BCCode 124 and spent the better half of the past 3 days hunting it down and now suspect it to be CPU fault.

I ran though the basics clean install, driver updates, memtest64 for 6 hours no errors, and etc found some faulty drivers but still getting the BSOD and during Prime95 between the 1:30+ hour mark the desktop locks up or turns off. Cooling has been checked on CPU and GPU and both are within fair limits. Tested the system with different GPU and RAM modules.

So I'm down to CPU,Mobo, or another Driver as a fault here but cant seem to locate it with what I know so now I am here for you fine gents and gals to maybe assist me in this process.

It's definitely a hardware fault. No specific piece of hardware is mentioned but the debugger highlights an issue with your CPU cache. Check your cpu temps and if possible swap and test another CPU just to make use that it isn't the mobo. You should probably consider an RMA.

Hello I've been plagued by a BSOD issue for quite a while already and ultimately I have failed to fix it by myself so I would like to ask for some help As a sort of user-gathered information its probably important for me to mention the following things the BSOD always gives the same x error it Random occurences BSOD 0x124 started right after i bought the new graphic card in november despite it might seem obvious that it could be caused by a faulty graphic Random BSOD 0x124 occurences card I've ran a few tests using Furmark OCCT and some other software to check it and during those tests i havent gotten any bsod I have reinstalled windows recently as an attempt to fix bsod as well BSOD often occurs upon the Windows launch sometimes during the greeting screen sometimes a half minute after desktop loads less often BSOD occurs while im gaming or when PC is simply idling those BSODs seem completely random and unrelated to the Random BSOD 0x124 occurences current load on the system but I might be wrong PC is clean from dust and it doesnt seem to be the heat issue since BSOD often occurs on low temperatures Sometimes there are several days between BSODs and sometimes it happens or times in a row upon the system start as described in point Well thats all what I can recall about my problem Sorry if the text is huge I just wanted the post to be as thorough as possible

A few things,
1. no dump is there, I can't read what could be a reason due to the language.
2. only a few hotfixes, it is highly recommended to keep your system up to date.

A:Random BSOD's BCCode 0x124

Several issues which combined may be throwing the 124. With only one DMP file it is really hard to say.
1-Related to ulsata2.sys SATAII150 Series Windows Drivers from Promise Technology, Inc. Your driver is from 2007 and needs to be updated or remove.

2-You have the remnants of an AVG install that are loading and causing some havoc.

After you remedy those we can start to look for the underlying hardware issue. Here are some things to try.
Stop 0x124 is a hardware error

If you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps.

If you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider.

This is usually heat related, defective hardware, memory or even processor though it is"possible" that it is driver related (rare).






Quote:
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
Synopsis:

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:

1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.
2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled.
If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.
3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware.
It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.
4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Their website should provide detailed instructions as to the brand and model-specific procedure.
5) Rarely, bugs in the OS may cause "false positive" 0x124 events where the hardware wasn't complaining but Windows thought otherwise (because of the bug).
At the time of writing, Windows 7 is not known to suffer from any such defects, but it is nevertheless important to always keep Windows itself updated.

6) Attempt to (stress) test those hardware components which can be put through their paces artificially.
The most obvious examples are the RAM and HDD(s).
For the RAM, use the in-built memory diagnostics (run MDSCHED) or the 3rd-party memtest86 utility to run many hours worth of testing.
For hard drives, check whether CHKDSK /R finds any problems on the drive(s), notably "bad sectors".
Unreliable RAM, in particular, is deadly as far as software is concerned, and anything other than a 100% clear memory test result is cause for concern. Unfortunately, even a 100% clear result from the diagnostics utilities does not guarantee that the RAM is free from defects - only that none were encountered during the test passes.

7) As the last of the non-invasive troubleshooting steps, perform a "vanilla" reinstallation of Windows: just the OS itself without any additional applications, games, utilities, updates, or new drivers - NOTHING AT ALL that is not sourced from the Windows 7 disc.
Should that fail to mitigate the 0x124 problem, jump to the next steps.
If you run the "vanilla" installation long enough to convince yourself that not a single 0x124 crash has occurred, start installing updates and applications slowly, always pausing between successive additions long enough to get a feel for whether the machine is still free from 0x124 crashes.
Should the crashing resume, obviously the very last software addition(s) may be somehow linked to the root cause.
If stop 0x124 errors persist despite the steps above, and the harware is under warranty, consider returning it and req... Read more

Code:

Product ID: 00426-OEM-8992662-00497
Your current installation is considered counterfeit since it is impossible for an Lenova2 OEM to report as genuine when installed to a retail motherboard, such as the one in your system. The only way it would report as genuine, is if it employed an activation crack to bypass the genuine check.

My recommendation is to install genuine Windows 7, which minimizes the occurence of the issues you are experiencing. Troubleshooting BSOD on a non-genuine installation is also considered to be a fruitless exercise by many of our BSOD analysts and they will often refuse to work on these - you will enjoy far more success if you can demonstrate that you are starting from a genuine installation, since some cracks employed to bypass the genuine test of Windows are known to be the actual cause of the BSOD.

Hi! fist of all, sorry for my bad english.

I've been getting BSOD for a like a month now, i had my laptop stored for a year because the power jack and poder cord of my laptop where broken. A month ago i asked a friend to help me soldering both. Since then, ive been getting bsod when i open several chrome tabs, connect a second monitor to the laptop, or try to run unity3d. BSOD usually happens after a couple of minutes of doing one of those things or just random after using the computer for a couple of hours.

i ran memtest86 for 14 hours, chkdsk /f /r, 0 errors.

im wondering what else can i do, please help.

Hello and welcome Chris sorry you have been waiting for a bit.
I am no expert but will have a go - now in the dump files there is a possible problem with the processor or it could be down to drivers of some sort ie chipset.

First can you run Speccy and if possible send back the temps on that machine please https://www.piriform.com/speccy/download if the readings come back as rather high then I suggest you check out the air intake and outlet of the laptop see my little ditty (below) for checking that out because the machine has just been lying around for so long it might well be just a build up of crud in it.

A:BSOD at seemingly random times, 0x124

Also, another thing to mention is that it does seem to happen in groups at random times. For example, let's say I got BSOD 6 times. Blue screens 1, 2, and 3 would all happen within 30 minutes of each other (if I restart immediately) Then, 4, 5, and 6 would happen within 30 minutes of each other, but all being an hour after 1, 2, and 3. Also, it can happen more than 3 times in a row, and they can happen more than an hour apart. This was just an example. However, the blue screens tend to happen in groups at a time.

Hi there Even since I build Bugcheck Win at 0x124 occasions with BSOD random 8.1 this new computer last year in September I am plagued by irregular bluescreens but was able to solve them as I though by replacing the RAM after memtest deemed sticks faulty I bought the RAM nd-hand how stupid of me So here I was with brand new RAM happily computing away but still getting some Win 8.1 BSOD at random occasions with Bugcheck 0x124 blue screens from time to time so I re-installed Windows in February to bail out faulty drivers or something and it seems to be fine again but no the BSOD kept comming So I replaced the PSU since I thought it might be load-related issue and my W PSU was getting old anyway maybe it wasn't able to deliver the load reliable anymore Now I have a shiny new W RS GM from CoolerMaster but to no avail I've attached the SF diagnostics tool file collection to this post in the hopes someone might circle down Win 8.1 BSOD at random occasions with Bugcheck 0x124 the cause The last days I really got many bluescreens During gaming during browsing or just when the PC was idle and Win 8.1 BSOD at random occasions with Bugcheck 0x124 should have switched to standby after a while instead of restarting from a BSOD The latest BSOD had a bugcheck of x GenuineIntel PROCESSOR CACHE I googled that and suspect my CPU might be the cause of all this But before I start a RMA with Intel I want to be sure Maybe I can try to elevate reduce the issue by underclocking or something Everything in my PC runs on stock clocks no overclocking at all Running the RAM on JEDEC MHz V or XMP MHz V does not change the BSOD rate Thanks for any hints

The 3 latest dumpfiles are Bugcheck 124 and 133 all mention HAL.dll. This points to a hardware related problem. analysing the dumpfiles i suspect it is audiorelated. I have a hunch it is your incompatible audo hardware/drivers from Creative.

Hello,

I've recently upgraded my pc where I installed a new Motherboard (ASUS Z87-PLUS) , CPU (I5 4670k) and a GPU (GTX780TI). After having done this I've started encountering some problems while using it. The computer has started BSODing along with the message "WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR". The BSODing is seemingly random where I've had it crash both when I'm gaming and while the pc is idle. I am not running an overclock and as far as I know this is not a temperature issue.

I have already installed a fresh version of Windows 8 in an attempt to fix this. I've also updated all of my drivers along with my BIOS as well as Windows to their latest versions. I've started to suspect that I've got a faulty component although I'd like some with this.

Thanks

Been getting bluescreens and lockups again, I used to have the same issue in '14 with my screen glitching out (seen below) before crashing or freezing. Back then I was able to fix it by uninstalling the drivers for my card and updating them, the problem disappeared till a couple of days ago. I suspect the issue is with the software though it could be a hardware issue as well. If someone could help me and take a look through the driver information as well at the recent bluescreens. I've also had a couple other bluescreens but it didn't create a minidump.

So far the crashes occur at random, whenever I'm playing a game or not. I'm fairly certain it's not the heat of the system as it usually stays around a comfortable 50?C/122?F when active.

USing WHOCRASHED, I get the generic 0x124, Hal.dll, WHEA Uncorrectable Error Response.

I managed to get a hold of the Microsoft DART software that has a crash analyzer. It points to mcupdate_authenticamd.dll

Its pointless troubleshooting a BSOD on an installation with outdated system files. The first thing to do is update Windows 7 fully - you have a quite a lot of updates to install.

Hello I've been getting random BSODs while using my computer. It occurs most frequently during gaming.
I have a gateway fx 6800-01e 3 years old running windows 7 home premium x64. I bought this as an upgrade from vista.
attached are my dump files performance report and system information. Please help. Thanks

A:BSOD at random times error 0x124 and 0x101

Combination of error codes 101, and 124, clearly points to hardware. Here are some ideas.
Stop 0x124 is a hardware error

If you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps.

If you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider.

This is usually heat related, defective hardware, memory or even processor though it is"possible" that it is driver related (rare).






Quote:
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
Synopsis:

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:

1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.
2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled.
If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.
3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware.
It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.
4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Their website should provide detailed instructions as to the brand and model-specific procedure.
5) Rarely, bugs in the OS may cause "false positive" 0x124 events where the hardware wasn't complaining but Windows thought otherwise (because of the bug).
At the time of writing, Windows 7 is not known to suffer from any such defects, but it is nevertheless important to always keep Windows itself updated.

6) Attempt to (stress) test those hardware components which can be put through their paces artificially.
The most obvious examples are the RAM and HDD(s).
For the RAM, use the in-built memory diagnostics (run MDSCHED) or the 3rd-party memtest86 utility to run many hours worth of testing.
For hard drives, check whether CHKDSK /R finds any problems on the drive(s), notably "bad sectors".
Unreliable RAM, in particular, is deadly as far as software is concerned, and anything other than a 100% clear memory test result is cause for concern. Unfortunately, even a 100% clear result from the diagnostics utilities does not guarantee that the RAM is free from defects - only that none were encountered during the test passes.

7) As the last of the non-invasive troubleshooting steps, perform a "vanilla" reinstallation of Windows: just the OS itself without any additional applications, games, utilities, updates, or new drivers - NOTHING AT ALL that is not sourced from the Windows 7 disc.
Should that fail to mitigate the 0x124 problem, jump to the next steps.
If you run the "vanilla" installation long enough to convince yourself that not a single 0x124 crash has occurred, start installing updates and applications slowly, always pausing between successive additions long enough to get a feel for whether the machine is still free from 0x124 crashes.
Should the crashing resume, obviously the very last software addition(s) may be somehow linked to the root cause.
If stop 0x124 errors persist despite the steps above, and the harware is under warranty, consider returning it and requesting a replacement which does not suffer periodic MCE events.
Be aware that attempting the subsequent harware troubleshooting steps may, in some cases, void your warranty:

8) Clean and carefully remove any dust from the inside of the machine.
Reseat all connectors and memory modules.

Hello sevenforums.
My PC has always given me trouble in the past by randomly restarting and getting BSODed. I used to "live with it" but over last 2-3 months it has gotten out of hand. My PC restarts at least 2-3 times per day. I always get 0x124 bug check code and so tested the processor with prime95 (for 2-3 hours) and ram with memtest86+(3 passes) but got clean results. I've attached the latest 10 minidumps. I'm at my wits end and REALLY dont want to reinstall windows! :O
Thanks in advance.
Edit: It does not even show a bsod but directly reboots.

A:Seemingly Random BSOD. STOP ERROR: 0xA, 0x7E, 0x124 mostly.

It's really hard to tell because there's very little raw data we can go on with this. It does sound that the memory is ok given your diagnostic runs on that, and it's evidently not the drive because you swapped drives and tested them and they came up ok. So we can rule those two out.

I feel we're dealing with the dreaded Trio of Trouble, which is CPU/Mobo/PSU. The WHEA errors (0x124 bugchecks) support this suspicion. Aside from some hardware tools like a PSU tester n stuff, there's unfortunately no definitive means of testing these items outside of placing them in perfectly reliable PCs. Not only that but we're dealing with a laptop here which makes things much worse in regards to swapping hardware, though it is a Sager which helps a bit. I still recommend you call them up and issue it for servicing, because it may be out of your service contract to try and replace these components yourself.

If you want, you can write down the numbers for the next 0x124 bugcheck you experience. There should be some parentheses with 4 numbers separated by commas. I need at least the last two. These will help me determine exactly what the error is for that particular bugcheck.

Hello,

Recently for Christmas I decided to upgrade my gaming rig, everything was going fine until around Janurary where I've been plagued with BSOD errors. They are quite random and have been happening while gaming, browsing and even just idling, there isn't really a pattern but I've noticed that the crashes have become much more frequent.

I thought it could be RAM at first, I ran Prime95 and got an instant BSOD error, but after running Passmark Memtest I've received no errors in 4 passes. I haven't got a clue what the issue could be.

I've attached the .zip file with the BSOD information as instructed. Hope anyone can help me out here, I will really appreciate it.

If any information is missing feel free to ask me, I'll try and answer it for you. Thanks!

A:Random BSOD errors while gaming/browsing/idling - 0x124 | hal.dll

I've managed to fix the errors. It turned out that my BIOS wasn't updated for there to be increased compatibility with Devil's Canyon CPU's, which just so happened to be mine. After installing the newest BIOS update, I ran Prime95 and there was no instant BSOD error and my processor ran very stable under maximum load. I'm just suprised that it was the BIOS considering I bought the motherboard back in December when upgrading my PC and it hadn't had a more recent BIOS update as standard. Oh well, thanks to anyone who was trying to help with this issue.

Hi TarBash45.

Uninstall Asus Charger Plus. It is the main issue here.

Also, Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Uninstall Avast using Avast Uninstall Utility. 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; for a safety reason.

Let us know the results.

Recently, I've been having very random program freezes (Firefox will lock up, then maybe Steam), and I have to wait a couple minutes for everything to "settle down". If I'm on a Skype call, the call will usually disconnect and sometimes Skype will crash claiming a disk i/o error.

Sometimes I have to restart my computer my computer, either using the windows option or forcefully with the power button, and often a lot of error message will pop up before it restarts. And every so often when these freezes happen/restarts, I will BSOD.

I'm wondering if a full hard drive replacement and reinstalling windows will fix this issue (since I've been planning to do that anyways), but I'm also wondering if it isn't my hard drives but another issues?

Thanks for your help!

Hi folks,

I built this computer for work and it's been constantly locking up or bluescreening.

On a first windows install, it would randomly BSOD but I thought I solved that problem, only to have it then start freezing. This was very random, sometimes it would run for days then boom, multiple freezes. I re-installed windows and now I'm back to BSOD and freezes. To be honest, I'm almost ready to stomp the thing.

I've run memtest, prime95, various stress testing programs and found no errors.

Motherboard is P8H61-MX USB3 Rev X.0x running a 3.20 gigahertz Intel Core i5-3470

Please save my sanity, thanks all!

A:Sudden and random BSOD's/Restarts/Lockups during gaming

Is there anyone out there willing to help? Over 107 views and not even one single post to attempt to even help. No offense, I know there's a lot of these types of threads opening up. It's just I could really use the help here and feels like I kinda got passed over. Please, if there is anyone that understands these BSOD codes and stuff and can help, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Hey this is my first post,

I've read most of the instructions on posting and hope I've done it right. This is the second computer I've built in about a week that is having this same BSOD. I am new to debugging so I'd like to know if I've come to the proper conclusion. I'm using WinDbg x64 to read the files. The last system I replaced the processor and it worked fine.

This computer reboots randomly, usually within the first 3 minutes of operation. No programs running.

I've included the information from using the DM LOG collector as instructed.

A:BSOD Random, after Win7 boot. No programs running. Error Bugchk 0x124

It appears your CPU on this PC is causing issues.

Please follow these instructions and run Prime95 for around 2 hours.

Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

If the PC blue screens when running Prime95 then please run it in Safe mode, if it still fails I'm afraid a new CPU will be the only option.

In this case a Machine Check Exception has been called and it has found a Cache error within the CPU.

A machine check exception is when the CPU finds a fault and reports it, generally the CPU gets the blame but in this case it looks like the CPU is actually at fault.

Nine times out of ten it appears 0x124 errors are caused by a faulty CPU, other pieces of hardware can cause it but it's not as common.

A:Random lockups/freezes and a pinch of BSOD, esp. while surfing certain sites

Before we begin I would like to warn you that this is most likely a hardware problem. STOP: 0x0000009C is caused when your processor reports a hardware error to XP. This can be caused by many different things including inadaquate cooling, bad RAM, and overclocking.

With that in mind we can run a general cleaning if you wish and see if anything shows up. Otherwise I would post this over in the hardware forum expertise in that area.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad in order to assist you when carrying out the following instructions.

Ok, so I built a friend a Core i7 920 based system.

here are the specifics:

Core i7 920
ASUS P6T Motherboard
6GB OCZ DDR3 Memory
Corsair 750W PSU
300GB Velociraptor Wstern Digital HDD
PNY GTX 285 Video Card
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.


Sometimes, at random times, idle or in use, the PC will lockup, hard. Mouse/Keyboard unresponsive, nothing. Have to power off the machine and reboot.

Event Viewer isnt showing much... is there anything else I can check to see what might be causing this?

Also, havce tried a format and fresh install...no luck.

Testing shows stable (No overclocking at all!) Temps are fine (35-40Deg Celcius) and runs Prime95 without a hiccup, and does not fail. Ran last night for 30 mins straight, no lockup, then went to dinner, come back and its locked up hard.

Upload the minidump to Rapidshare and post it. I'll have a look. If I can't help, possibly others can. H2S04 seems good with this kind of thing.

Hi and thanks in advance for any and all assistance and sorry if this turns into a long post I have a problem that has been infuriating me for the past month Random Dump 0x124 with Restarts or so I was away for studies for about months and once I returned fired up my PC again for the first time All went well for a few days Then suddenly I would get a black screen for a few moments before the computer just restarts No BSOD no screen tearing or strange noises from the case no indication whatsoever that it was about to restart So I started trying to figure out what was wrong Using Bluescreenviewer and WhoCrashed I found Random Restarts with 0x124 Dump out that it was a x error citing the ntoskrnl at fault Reading online it seemed that this was generally caused by either a thermal issue hardware problem or in some cases driver problems I started updating everything I could Graphics drivers mouse drivers keyboard drivers BIOS drivers etc Still got the restarts They seemed to be appearing only when I was playing games don't use this particular PC for much else so took a while to realize so I decided to check thermal issues Using MSI Afterburner and CPU-Z I found that my CPU was never reaching any significant heat my Hyper EVO keeps it under or around C even under heavy load and that while my graphics card got hot it never went beyond so it didn't seem to be a thermal issue there I ran memtest to try to identify ram issues and it came back after a night of running clean I did a dskcheck r and while it took a bit of time it too came back alright In order to truly rule out driver issues i reinstalled windows and still it kept happening I read online that there was a chance that the power supply could be acting up Since I had been meaning to update my graphics card and needed a new power supply to go with it I decided to do that I plugged in my new PSU and my new GPU and it went fine for about a day or two before the restarting resumed I tried playing with the case side open to truly rule out cooling issues and it still restarted I moved the computer and plugged it straight into the wall because I had a suspicion that maybe the extra cable wasn't giving it enough juice but it still restarted I'm now at my wits end I've tried everything I can think of My new GPU never goes to high temps my CPU seems to be running fine I haven't found any ram memory problems my new PSU can't be to blame and so I don't know whats left Any assistance or guidance would be much appreciated Tl dr Restarts started after some inactive time Seems to be a x bsod error Tried the following -update all drivers -update BIOS -re-roll to previous versions of graphics drivers -re-install windows -purchase new PSU and GPU -memtest came back ok -dskcheck r came back ok -tried playing with side off MSI never shows the CPU or GPU going into any dangerous territory in terms of temps Thanks again If I need to attach anything else like raw dump files or Afterburner screens or something like that let me know

A:Random Restarts with 0x124 Dump

Hi fenr1r,

There are 2 types of the crashes, a write error and an observing error, all of them are on the same core and cache bank.
To be honest this looks like the motherboard is the problem.
We could try some hardware tests if you would like, but lets take a look at the possibilities.
A bus error (in this case an observing error) is usually caused by chipset drivers or the hardware where you already have ruled out most of them, only the CPU is left but it is ruled out by the bus error as (as mentioned) it is an observing error what simply means that the CPU noticed the error but didn't do a thing with it (requesting data or sending data).

My suggestion would be to replace the motherboard, there is no test for identifying if the motherboard is the cause besides of replacing it.

EDIT, what are the 3.3v, 5v and 12v values according to the BIOS?

Observing error

0x124 bugchecks usually indicate hardware problems (the CPU tells Windows your system had an uncorrectable error in hardware, and Windows bugchecks with a 0x124 and the parameters the CPU passed). In looking at the hardware error, it could be either RAM or CPU:

Unfortunately, you can find many a user who complain about heat and hardware issues in the dv6 laptops running AMD mobile CPUs, even on HP's site:
HP dv6-1160en + overheating - HP Support Forum

As much as I hate to be the bearer of bad news, ICACHEL1_SNOOP_ERR bugchecks tend to be bad CPUs or poor cooling (or the former caused by the latter), as this is indicating that the L1 cache on your CPU did not return data one of the CPU cores requested within a timeout period - almost always indicating a hardware problem, hence the CPU telling Windows to stop due to a hardware issue.

HPs are pretty prone to this, especially ones running AMD CPUs, unfortunately - I'd be contacting HP at this point for RMA / warranty repair.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings. Also set the BIOS to default, too.
How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS)

The BIOS seems to be old.

Code:
BiosMajorRelease = 8
BiosMinorRelease = 14
BiosVendor = American Megatrends Inc.

SystemManufacturer = HP-Pavilion
SystemProductName = FQ621AA-A2L a6752f
SystemFamily = 103C_53316J
Search in HP for any possible BIOS update.

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.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Hey ive had this PC custom built for about months now and have only upgraded the HD about months ago but recently over the past few months i have noticed that my computer randomly locks up This has actually been happening over the past months but it was very rare back then only happening when i was transferring large files and playing large playlists of mp s at the same time and my PC would lock up and a high pitched squeal would come from the speakers It also used Random Help! - Lockups Please to lock up on the login screen but a restart or usually fixed this Recently though these problems have only become much more common many times per day and more severe I now find that my PC will lockup at complete random times even when it is idle if im playing games listening to mp s doing work or even Random Lockups - Please Help! just booting up It even happens well before i have even reached the Random Lockups - Please Help! windows bootup process and now causing my PC to not start at all unless it is given a good whack seems to work sometimes or leaving it off for several minutes I ll turn my PC on and it will just appear to go into standby mode and the monitor switches off as well as the rest of the computer And finally to make matters worse i find my cd drive which has worked perfectly up till now starts ejecting the tray when it boots up and when i push it back in it spits it out again and the LED flashes quickly The only way to fix this i have found is to disconnect the power cable leading to the back of the cd drive Im really not sure what to do Im going to be giving my system an overhaul soon so if i could find out what the problems are before then it would be great A friend of mine had a similar problem and Compaq told him he needed a new motherboard Im running a custom built Duron with M of Ram Western Digital gig HD unpartitioned for now AZ st Mainboard MB nVidia Vanta-LT AGP X Generic cd-rom ancient x Acer cd-rw SMC EZ network card and running Win SE upgrading to k and perhaps linux mandrake in a couple of weeks Any help replies would be greatly appreciated Thanks Jaymz nbsp

Ever since I installed the ATI xpert 128, I have been having lockups. I am almost certain that the card is causing the lockups because they only appeared after I installed the card, and they disappear if I set the 3D acceleration to none.

I am running the newest drivers, have checked for conflicts, and have even reinstalled Windows. Nothing seems to help.

I have a chance of running into a lockup if I run Internet Explorer, or play certain games. When running other games, the computer will lock up after a certain time period. (Along the lines of 5 seconds)
 

A:Random lockups

Hi,

This could well be software related, drivers or something to do with your OS setup.

No doubt, a lot of members will give you suggestions about that.

But I had a similar problem with random lockups on my system. That ended up being a 4-page post here.

Took 8 months of hard work to pin the problem down to the mainboard hard disk connector/controllor.

So if the lockups are happening when the hard drive is having to work hard (like with my system), that means the hdd controller might be the problem.

One more thing - it'll be easier for people to give you suggestions if you post a detailed description of you Hardware and software setup - CPU, mainboard manufacturer, chipset, ram, drives, etc...
Best Regards
Kit

Hello, I am having a problem on Windows XP.

At any random time, the computer totally locks up. Can't move the mouse, CTRL ALT DEL or anything. No error messages at all, it just plain stops. It usually happens when an Explorer window is open (My Computer, Internet Explorer, any kind of folder), but it's also happened while just at the desktop.

This problem has only occurred since we last reformatted our Hard Drive. Before reformatting we were running XP as well.

My specs are as follows.

AMD Duron 850MHz
40Gig Western Digital Hard Drive
GeForce 4 MX/440
Hercules Fortissimo Gamesurround II
512 MB RAM (Two sticks of 256)

I would really appreciate any feedback. If its possible I want to try and solve this without reformatting... Because backing up lots and lots of MP3s and other stuff is a major pain. Otherwise I would do it.

Thanks again

I have an intermittent problem. I hate this kind of problem... I built my CPU myself 2 years ago. Sometimes, maybe once a month, maybe once a week, my computer will freeze. and I have no choice but to do a hard shutdown. This usually happens when I am not using it and there are no programs running. I'm having trouble pinpointing the source of the issue. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello,

I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64bit. I have a weird problem. Windows randomly freezes/locks.. The HDD led on my case stops with blinking and my screen freezes. What i find really weird is that when this happens, my mouse (razer deathadder) and my keyboard (logitech g15) stop working AND the light's in them go off. Like they dont get power anymore.. The same what happens when you put your pc to sleepmode. I really have no idea what it could be. The HDD returned positive on all test in hdtune pro.

It really happens random. Sometimes I can play games for hours (sc2 etc.) without freezing one time, than I'm gone for like 15 minutes and it freezes...

All help is welcome!

A:W7 Random lockups

That could be a sign of a failing PSU or a faulty motherboard. It may also possibly be related to the well-known issue with the chipset on your board. I haven't seen anyone actually complain about it yet, but since the issue is apparently quite serious, maybe they will start popping up. That being said, are you using the 6 GBps SATA ports on your motherboard? If so, you shouldn't have to worry.

You could also check your memory out, but that wouldn't explain the loss of power to peripherals. Is your BIOS up to date? Are you overclocking? You left out a lot of troubleshooting steps that you may have done already, so some of what I said may be redundant.

Hi Guys nbsp Only week ago I purchased a Compaq Presario CQ - AX from a local electrical retailer However the minute I took the laptop out of the box and turned it on I had issues with random lockups etc I checked Random Lockups online for answers with very limited success So I checked the event viewer and the error message came up as nbsp Reset to device Device RaidPort was issued Source amdsataEvent ID nbsp There are multiple entries of this warning which all Random Lockups coincide with the laptop freezing up When it does lock up I can move the mouse and switch Random Lockups between windows but everything stops responding for about minutes nbsp nbsp The general answer I got from online seemed to be that changing the RAID controller in the BIOS from AHCI to IDE should solve it with very little in the way of performance loss However I see no option in the BIOS to do so nbsp Anyone got any ideas nbsp Solved View Solution

A:Random Lockups

I was getting this error on an HP g62 435dx.  I tried a number of driver updates, updated to the new bios ... no luck. Finally, I changed the sata driver from the amdsata to the generic windows 7 ahci driver and it seems to have fixed the problem. If you want to try it, go to Device Manager->IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers->Sata Driver.  Choose "Update Driver"->"Browse my computer for Driver Software"->"Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" and then choose the "Standard AHCI 1.0" driver.   Note: I haven't done an A/B comparison on hard drive performance between the two drivers but there has been no noticeable change in performance (CrystalDiskMark gives me about 80 MB/s which, it seems to me, is fine for a 5400 rpm drive). Anyway, good luck.

For a couple weeks now my computer has been locking up on me. I'll be playing a game or surfing the web and my screen will lock up. and the backlighting on my keyboard/mouse will go out. None of the fans/lights inside my case change, and the only way to get it running again is to unplug it, wait about 10 minutes, then plug it in and boot up.

After the problem started happening, I put a new motherboard, cpu, ram, and a different video card in there, and it's still doing the same thing.

My guess is the PSU, but I want to get another opinion on it before I go drop the cash on a new one.

A:Having random lockups.

For some reason I can't edit my first post, but my OS is Win7 64bit Ultimate, not Vista, however the problem started when I had Vista installed.

Also, the lockups used to be hours apart, now they're happening as soon as windows starts to load. It wasn't having the problem when I started in Safe Mode.

I have remove the ram and changed it with ram from another running system and have put my ram in it and no problems

But I have notice that the ram doz seam pretty hot when you take it out

Hi DND and welcome to TSF !

Please test your old memory sticks with memtest86+ and windiag to see if they're not faulty. Download, unzip and burn memtest86+'s bootable .iso image file using a burning software that can handle .iso files. Enter the BIOS at startup and set the boot priority to CD-rom first. Leave memtest run overnight or at least do 3 full passes on your memory. It's advised that you test one memory stick at a time, removing the others from their slot. Report if it finds any error and double-check memtest's results with windiag as it runs different tests.

IMHO that Ezycool power supply is crap. 500W PSU's don't sell at less than 30$. If you find that your older memory sticks are faulty the power supply may be what damaged them. See this thread for more information :
http://www.techsupportforum.com/f70/...on-107466.html

Download and install sensorsview pro (fully functional 21 days trial) and see what it says about your temperatures, fan speeds and voltages. Do the voltages seem to fluctuate somewhat ? Post a screenshot of those readings here. To take a screenshot press the print screen (or prt scr) key on your keyboard then go to start => all programs => accessories => paint, click edit => paste and save as a .jpg. Attach the image to your next post using the manage attachments button from advanced mode.

Go to the event viewer : start => run => eventvwr.msc. Search the different sections there for errors related to the times of your lockups. Double-click the error and use the third button on the right to copy the info in the clipboard then paste it here.

Hi I bought a new comuter this fall and from the begining I ve been having these major crashes where I m forced to use the resetbutton to restart the computer Crashes mostly occur when lockups Random I m playing Random lockups games that utilize D-graphics but they also Random lockups happen when i play ordinary videofiles in WMP I also had crashes when running other programs but very seldom I talked to the techsupport provided by my retailer and they told me to return the computer to them for testing When they returned it they claimed to have run hrs of automatic graphic tests and no crash When I talked to them again they suggested that the problem might be that I had dirty electricity so I got me an UPS but to no avail I have also tried plugging into diffrent wallcontacts Talked to support again and they todl me to return the computer to them again More tests this time they did it without reformatting but no crashes I guess that would rule out any kind of software problem Is it possible that a monitor could disturb the computer somehow my monitor has quite a few years on it s neck It doesn t seem very logical but I have run out of ideas so any help would be great Ask away at what you need to know nbsp

BUGCHECK_STR: 0x4E_99
PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (4e)
Probably caused by : memory_corruption

Possible solution: Download and run memtest from www.memtest.org for a minimum of 7 passes. Please note ther are several tests performed per pass.

It may be best to test the ram 1 stick at a time instead of all at once. After you have tested all the ram please post back and let us know the outcome.

Please note that faulty ram can sometimes pass memtest





baddew: Note for all; if memory problem shows up under bugcheck and the memtest does not show errors, run the test in safe mode. I did this and the errors that never showed up in normal mode popped up like minnows after food. http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic113909.html sourceClick to expand...

I had Vista x installed with Nvidia drivers and it went fine for several month until this month when it starts to do random lockups It happens in just surfing around listen to music or playing games It just stops instantaneously and I need to do a manual reboot Heat Random lockups on all hardware is checked everything is ok I installed new drivers and still same problem and later I could not almost enter the game because it instantaneously locks up and one time a blue Random lockups screen I formated and install Win XP x with drivers and I just played a Wc game and it locked up again My GFX is Ultra I am not sure if it is graphical related but this is my only suspect atm because in the blue screen I had sec to read and I got something like quot graphical drivers quot When I installed new drivers when I had Vista it slightly changed from just going black a couple of seconds when playing a game with a lock up to follow to just lock up right away The only change I have done so far to the point when it started to lock up is adding a amplifier with floorspeaker which is connected with an optical cord Before I just had a PC speaker connected through USB Also I have changed the water in my liquid cooling tank Nothing else really Any ideas really frustrating nbsp

Hi all,

I'm new to the forum, but have been having quite serious hardware issues for the last couple of months. If I leave the system idle it usually locks up after anywhere between 5 and 60 minutes. Strangely the only way I've managed to keep the system from locking is by having a video playing in VLC media player. Any ideas on what could be causing the problem?

Hey, I started having a problem with my computer a few weeks ago in which my monitor would shut off, and it sounded like a fan was either being turned off or slowed down. I opened the tower and that is not the case. This literally happens every 15 minutes, and the ONLY way to shut the computer off is to pull the plug. No commands will work when the computer is locked up, and I can't even hold the power button down to shut it off. I really have NO clue what is going on. I'll post my specs, and if anyone can give any sort of advice, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Hey guys, I'm having an issue where my system just locks up and refuses to respond. It can happen randomly while the computer is idle or while I'm actively using it. Even happened once right after boot when I was going through Windows Explorer.

Dump files are attached.

I'm not really sure what else to say other than that, any additional info I'll edit in later.

- x64 Ultimate (SP1)
- Original installed OS
- Full Retail
- Hardware around 2 years 4 months old.
- OS 5 months old.

EDIT: Might want to mention that I don't actually get a BSOD. The screen just freezes.

EDIT2: Event Viewer logs available on post #5

EDIT3: More Event Viewer logs available on post #10. I've also updated my LAN driver

A:Random lockups and freezing

No DMP's inc.
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32. To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

I've had this system working fine for a year or so bit it is causing problems for a while now and it is getting really on my nerves. So to jump right in these are my specs:

Windows 7 home permium 64bit updated from vista
Intel core i7 920 2.67Ghz
6MB RAM
Nvidia GeForce GTX 275
Gigabyte EX58-UD4P


I have formated it still no luck.
It freezes at startup or later on seems random to me, I have Chrome, Skype/teamspeak and League of Legends running most of the time. When it freezes all sounds will repeat for a short time and then continue for about 5 seconds.

Help would be appriciated!

A:Random freezes/lockups

If formatting didn't do the trick and it's still causing problems for you, then it's most certainly hardware issues. It's just a matter of figuring out exactly what hardware it is.

I am unable to read the syslogs because they're in a different language, but I can use the two crashdumps. One reported your video card drivers (or video card itself) timing out. Note that this doesn't exactly mean there's a problem with it, as something else could've been holding them up. The other crashdump is a bit more interesting. It shows what appears to be a shift of two bytes in one of your CPU's registers. I cannot ascertain how this happened without access to at least a full kernel dump of the scenario. However, it does kinda lead me to believe it's hardware-based.

Here's a battery of tests you can use to try and narrow down cause:
RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test; Large FFTs; overnight (9+ hours)
GPU: MemtestCL - Run twice (if any of the tests work on your GPU)
Drives: Seatools - All basic tests aside from the Fix all or the advanced ones.

All of these (excluding MemtestCL) are included in the UBCD if you prefer a Live CD environment (which is the best environment to test hardware on). Note that Prime95 currently does not work on the UBCD. Also, please provide us temps/voltages using HWInfo with Sensors only option checked. Log two 30-minute instances: one for idle, and one for high load. Preferably if you can get system to crash in high load let it log until crash.

Over the last two days I have had four system lockups not BSODs I have been using the system normally and then the screen goes a single solid colour seems to be related to what is open so went green one time when I had Freecell open although this was not the active window and the disk Random lockups system light comes on I am unable to access the system through the keyboard and I lose access to the drives etc from another machine So far I have left it for minutes before having to press the power button to close it down I've checked all the logs in eventvwr and there are no error messages relevant to the time of the lockup although on two of the four occassions there are error messages for the CDROM but they are at least half an hour in advance of the failure I've scanned for viruses with no result and checked the disks with no errors CPU and MB temperatures are slighly Random system lockups up but well within limits and consistent with the room being hot The system has not been updated recently and there have been no hardware changes for months and no dump is being produced as techically it is still running I'm running Windows IE and McAfee antivirus and firewall the graphics is an onboard Nvidia all are fully patched The machine is an AMD quad core with Gb Random system lockups memory The system is not overclocked I'm not sure what info to provide so if anybody has an idea what this might be or wants further info please let me know Thanks in advance

Hi all, hope you can help me on this...

My 6 months old PC started to have frequent lock ups since last week. I originally suspected a problem update with the Nividia video driver from Windows Update and did an uninstall and fresh install. The look ups become less frequent, but it still happens.

A check in the Event Viewer, I noticed this message has been appearing since Feb 2010, and everyday now:

"The system could not successfully load the crash dump driver.

Log Name: System
Source: volmgr
Event ID: 45"

I had experienced occasional lockups when using Lightroom 2 since I have this PC, but I am getting more disturbed as the series of lockups is getting frequent.

Is this lock up directly related to some problems with my primary hard disk?

Hope someone can help me here. Thanks !

Sgxsun Hi and welcome

Please run a chkdsk as outlined below.

Also run a system file check - to do so type cmd in search, then right click it and run as admin, then type SFC /SCANNOW.

Thanks

Jan

CHKDSK /R /F:
Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as adminstrator) Command Prompt. Please do this for each hard drive on your system.
When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter. Then reboot and let the test run. It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors. See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.

Elevated Command Prompt:
Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"

CHKDSK LogFile:
Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application log file entry.
Double click on the Source column header.
Scroll down the list until you find the Chkdsk entry (wininit for Win7) (winlogon for XP).
Copy/paste the results into your next post.

Hi.

I'm experiencing random lockups on my Vista PC (system specs attached), which happens every 5-15 minutes. When it happens, 95% of the time it gets back to normal after 30-60 seconds, and 5% of the time I get a "display driver stopped responding and was restarted" message.

I changed my RAM, ran the Microsoft bootable memtest, (automatically) installed all the latest Windows updates, my display driver is up-to-date, disabled Aero, and the problem persists.

Anyone has any idea before I reinstall everything from scratch?

Thanks for any help,
JF

Hey there,

I just built a new computer and I have had 2 random lock ups (not a bsod, but I can't move the mouse or toggle num/caps lock).

I have read into examining the dump files but can't seem to get it to work.

If anyone would please help me examine this file to determine the cause of lock ups, I would really appreciate it!

Just in case here are my System Specs:

Windows 7 64bit Ultimate
Intel i7 875 @ 2.93ghz
ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 P55
GSkill Ripjaw Series 8GB (2x4) DDR3 1333
XFX Radeon HD 5870

Also I am not sure if this is the appropriate time or place to ask; I am having problems with Windows or the motherboard (I'm not sure which is having trouble) recognizing the SATA Ports that my external HDs are plugged into.

Appreciative,
C. Marrs

Love to, but which file? none attached.

BTW if not a BSOD, you shouldnt have Dump files.

i recently built a new computer not a month ago. lately its been proned to completely lock up on me, both when its under load and when its doing next to nothing. it locks up, no mouse movement but winamp will finish the song its on. also, after i reboot it i lose all settings/cookies that i was doing.

i think its related to:
a: overheating? ive seen my proc run as hot as 55C

b: some sort of software confllict, specifically trillian i think? although i just got the new patch that fixes crashes..

c: something to do with my motherboard overclock AI?

d: i also noticed my power supply fan runs around 1500 rpms. kinda low,but the symptoms dont seem to denote a power failure

system specs:

asus p4p800E deluxe
3.06 ghz pentium 4 HT, 800 mhz fsb, 1 mb L2 cache
ATi fireGL Z1 128 mb
1 gig 2700 ddr ram from crucial. soon to be 2 gigs

Been getting BSODs and lockups at random past few months, usually only once a day at max, though today I've locked up twice and figured time to try and get to the bottom of it. It seems like this happened after a driver update for my graphic card a few months ago (v320 or something like that, honestly can't remember for sure) and would just get black screens whenever tried to play Just Cause 2 and rolled driver back in order to be able to play the game. And ever since then have been getting the BSODs/lockups. Have tried different versions of nvidia drivers trying to fix this issue to no avail, clean installing every time. Not very tech savvy so figured this best place to go to get any help if possible.

A:BSODs and random lockups

Hi Neo42.

Seeing a lot of drivers as failing, I will want to see two things at first.

One, as it is not very likely to fail so many of drivers at once, 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.

Two, it becomes a must to see your system setup; but the MSINFO32.nfo file that you uploaded is corrupt. Upload your MSINFO32.nfo file once again.
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.
Then we will be able to proceed with the troubleshooting.

A:Random Lockups... Very Frustrating! :(

1) What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?
2) Does the same thing happen in safe mode?

I hope this is the right section couldn't find lockups and Random frequent a better place to post this thread The problem Frequently my computer locks up for a moment but not completely and my computer doesn't crash It happens on average of at least once every or minutes however it does seem that if I'm doing something less intensive like Random and frequent lockups reading simple text online it happens somewhat less often but it definitely still happens and is still relatively frequent If sound is playing it will continue to play normally If a video is streaming one of two things will happen In one case the visual will lock up for - seconds and then pick up playing later in the video and in this case the sound will continue normally OR both the sound and video will Random and frequent lockups lock up at the same time and pick up where it left off after the freeze is over XP and other applications will be slow also I never lose control of the mouse cursor but things will become unresponsive If I'm writing in Microsoft Word I can keep typing through a lockup but the words will not appear until it's over with Similarly I can click on things in Firefox for example but the commands will not be processed until the lockup is over What I've tried This problem started on April th The night before my computer did a Windows XP update after turning it off When I woke up and turned the computer back on this problem began The first thing I did was system restore to April th This did not help I also moved some very large files from my C drive to my F drive but I don't remember exactly when I tried doing a disk check on the C drive it took much longer than normal and also tried defragmenting the drive which never finished after hours it only got to These things have not helped I've also tried running Spybot S amp D and it removed many things but it did not fix this problem I've had this computer for more than a year and I've never had this problem before gigs of RAM and a dual core processor That's all I can think of right now Help

This can be closed because I stated a new topic since I have discovered a virus/malware.

A:Problem with random lockups.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

My initial thoughts are a possible failing / failed graphics card or a problem with the motherboard. From what you describe I would lean toward the graphcs card initially. The problem with the mouse may have been pure coincidence!

Is this a 'big brand' PC like HP, Dell etc? If so, what is the exact make and model, include the 7 digit Dell Service Tag number if its a Dell.

If its a self / custom build could you also provide the make, model and wattage of the power supply, make and model of RAM, etc.

Have you ever changed / upgraded any hardware since you got it?
How old is the PC?

Can you run DXDiag (Start then type "dxdiag" (without the quotes) in the Run box (at the bottom) and hit return. When the window opens click the 'Save All Information' button on the bottom right corner and save the file to your desktop. Then copy and paste the contents of that file (will be quite big) into a reply here.
