BSOD on Windows XP - possibly hardware failure

Q: BSOD on Windows XP - possibly hardware failure

The evening of Wednesday th July I was playing World of Warcraft on my Windows XP Home Edition laptop when the graphics froze the sound glitched then I got a BSOD for about half a second before the screen went black I rebooted but got another BSOD I restarted the computer again got to the login screen typed the first character of my password and the screen went black Over the next few attempts BSOD Windows XP on hardware - possibly failure I determined that generally using the mouse was ok but sometimes the screen hung Attempting to type in my password invariably resulted in either a hang or the screen going black The following morning once the laptop had cooled down I was able to log in I BSOD on Windows XP - possibly hardware failure shut the lid and left it That evening I was able to log on and played World of BSOD on Windows XP - possibly hardware failure Warcraft very briefly without trouble This morning I logged on and had been playing World of Warcraft for perhaps minutes when I got another BSOD Same routine as before I left the computer for a few hours then logged on without trouble downloaded the tools BSOD on Windows XP - possibly hardware failure to capture system issues as listed at World of Warcraft crash destroyed operating system While running the tool I noticed it reporting two mini-dumps and when I checked them they were both from the Wednesday night None from a few hours before While the tool was still running I got another BSOD Where do I go from here I can't get the tool to run to completion without getting a BSOD I may be able to get the minidumps off the computer and separately extract other information bit by bit too It'll take ages as I'll have to allow perhaps an hour between each attempt and I have a life so can't spend all day doing this Any ideas I suspect hardware failure as I hadn't updated any software or drivers recently or changed any software settings It would be nice if I copuld identify what has failed before I take the laptop for a very expensive repair

Preferred Solution: BSOD on Windows XP - possibly hardware failure

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: BSOD on Windows XP - possibly hardware failure

You could test the hard drive yourself, that would be a good starting point.
You'll need to download the ISO CD-image from the drive maker's website, create a CD from that ISO file, then boot your laptop from it and run the test.

First determine what brand the drive is, then download the appropriate ISO file from the manufacturer. The links are at the top of this page: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

PS: Don't download the Windows version of the testing software because that will be of no use to you if Windows is currently unstable or won't run properly.
You need to download the version for DOS which is supplied as an ISO file.

Hey there,

Ive been having blue screens for quite a while now and been trying to fix them myself but Ive decided it might be easier with some assistance.

Ive ran memtest86+ for a whole day and found no errors.
I ran prime95 and furmark for a couple of hours with no errors.

Ive also tried using Driver Verifier a long while back and removed any drivers that i saw causing problems but it still persisted. I was going to try Driver Verifier again but while i do that i thought it'd be wise to see if anyone can see something obvious or offer some assistance.

My debug file is attached.

Hi all I have an MSi GT C Laptop that I've had numerous problems with When I first ordered this laptop it was dead on arrival and had to be shipped back for fixing Since i've gotten it back I have had BSODs ranging from - times a week up to times in a day I finally got fed up with it and started digging I did memtest and recieved no errors after passes I just tried running driver verifier and the computer would not boot up but yielded a dump file for me I checked OS integrity as well as Harddrive chkdsk came back clean Attached is the required dumps I did check through the hardware BSOD related? - Possibly memory dump for the verifier and it does mention possibly hardware related I've heard interpreting the verifier dumps is a science so hopefully someone more experienced can help me out This BSOD - Possibly hardware related? BSOD tendency has carried through from Windows to Windows It doesn't seem to have a rhyme or reason to when it crashes although I've noticed certain apps such as Steam Games don't cause crashes but having java applications and IDE's open seem to increase the tendencies Any insight would be greatly appreciated Thanks Aaron

I've been scouring the web for a possible answer for my BSOD but so far no software changes have worked Starting when I had vista I got the BSOD and just before I upgraded clean boot to Windows bit it wasn't multiple times (possibly BSOD hardware) Memory_Management a day or as it was at a time during start up One of the first ones I actually reported was to yahoo answers called partmgr sys Blue screen of death I amp m In HELL - Yahoo Answers The first idea I got from there that helped for a time was doing a defrag but it didn't last by the next day I was back into the cycle of BSOD hell And I rarely got the same error twice but from what I read around the web sometimes they are covering up the problem So I bring forth to you today a zip folder with the mini dump files because I can't read them and that's helped so many others oh and the reason I've been considering it BSOD (possibly hardware) Memory_Management to likely be hardware issue is because lately I just went and re installed win to see if that helped which it did somewhat I've been only getting Memory Management BSOD Hope there BSOD (possibly hardware) Memory_Management is something I can do there is a lot of the history of my issue in the yahoo answers post

Hello After many years of experiencing a BSOD I decided to ask the forum BSOD Reformat. Fresh After Hardware? Possibly so it'll be a lot faster and easier with the help of many experts So let's get the story situated I have had a Windows x Ultimate CPU Intel i K clocked at ghz stock voltage Cooler Corsair H Cooler Graphics Zotac GTX TI OC AMP edition RAM Kingston HyperX x GB Ram MHZ DDR Hard Drive Intel GB Solid State quot Motherboard Biostar TP B Power Supply Antec Power Supply W High Current Sound card HT Omega Claro Plus After running the computer for about a year with all updated drivers and such BSODs BSOD After Fresh Reformat. Possibly Hardware? starts to occur At first I assume it was a virus had BSOD After Fresh Reformat. Possibly Hardware? avast before so I decided to fully reformat the hard drive with Windows x Ultimate again I remember reading the BSOD screen and sometimes they had different error codes Strangely sometimes my hard drive would not be detected until I had to restart many times until a successful detection for the SSD would occur So I reformatted however in the process of installing my first driver Nvidia for GTX I got a BSOD Giving up hope I decided to come here and report the problem After that I just installed several drivers but not all Thought I believe it's my hard drive that's failing but I wouldn't mind a second opinion I did transfer some of my old files after a fresh reformat however none of them were exe files except genuine drivers such as nvidia's Included are the dump and report Thanks for the help

A:BSOD After Fresh Reformat. Possibly Hardware?

Try doing a power cycle of the SSD. The following steps should be carried out and take ~1 hour to complete.Power off the system.
Remove all power supplies (ac adapter then battery for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and drain all components of power.
Reconnect all power supplies (battery then ac adapter for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
Turn on the system and enter the BIOS (see your manual for the steps to enter the BIOS)
Let the computer remain in the BIOS for 20 minutes.
Follow steps 1-3 and physically remove the SSD from the system by disconnecting the cables for a desktop or disconnecting the drive from the junction for a laptop.
Leave the drive disconnected for 30 seconds to let all power drain from it.
Replace the drive connection(s) and then do steps 4-8 again.
Repeat steps 1-4.
Start your computer normally and run Windows.

The above steps were a result of: Why did my SSD "disappear" from my system? - Crucial Community

While that may not be your drive, a power cycle should be the same on all SSD drives. See how the system responds after the SSD power cycle.

Hello Recently I've been having quite a few BSOD aswell as a number of freezes The BSOD's happen seemingly random and I think they've been primarily 'd ' and 'a' errors I'm hoping there'll be a log of past BSOD's in the diagnostics tool file The freezes only ever happen when I'm using a web browser and started occuring about a week ago Most of the time the computer stutters one or two times errors, BSOD, multiple failing hardware possibly and then freezes up followed by a restart - seconds later The few times it has managed BSOD, multiple errors, possibly failing hardware to recover the resource monitor shows that something called 'system interrupts' have had a sizeable cpu spike I've also noticed that my network connection tends to just die a few hours after I start the computer As I've gotten BSOD's I've been updating or rolling back drivers that were implied but at this point I'm more suspecting a hardware problem than software I should note that leaving prime on over the night didn't spit out any errors Any help pinpointing the problem s would be very appreciated Edit I just used a program called bluescreenview and it appears atleast or so reports were missing days ago or so there were a bluescreen and the computer failed to start and startup repair decided to do a rollback

Hi All,

I usually get this BSOD at startup, but a press of the reset button usually allows me to start normally and run the system for most of the day. The most aggravating part of this BSOD is it doesn't give me a clue as to what may be failing.

Anyone have any ideas as to what may be the culprit? I just ran the WD disk diagnostics on my 3 hard drives and they show no problems. Am I looking at a possibly dying PSU? Any programs out there that will monitor my startup and possibly point to the problem? Thanks for the help!!

A:BSOD, Hardware Failure

dont know of any such program

i would suggest (if u're comfortable with it) disconnecting each device one by one and booting up to see which one (if any will result in no blue screen)

for example, take out the sound card, then the net/modem, then the second/third hd etc

each time u tvke a device out boot to see if the error goes away

maybe check the log in event viewer for any kind of detailed message

Hi ercarlitosg.

In order to be certain about a hardware error, post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions. Because we need to see some things about your storage environment, and the display environment.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .
The computer seems to be aged ... 4/5 years more or less. Having the latest available BIOS (v 1106) installed. So some restrictions in troubleshooting is already imposed there.

If you have a GPU below 700 series, Install the NVIDIA DRIVERS 314.22WHQL only.
Uninstall All nvidia items in Control Panel > Programs and features3D Vision Control Driver
3D Vision Driver
Graphics Driver
HD Audio Driver
nvidia Update
(Are you using nvidia chipset drivers? If so, dont uninstall anything other than those are listed).
Now follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling
Download 314.22 WHQL. While installing, Select Custom (Advanced) install. In the next page, follow this settings:

But now all of a sudden I'm making BSOD errors anytime I browse the internet or play video games. (Doesn't happen during idle) And I have no idea how to interpret dump files in the least. Wondering if I could get some help on this one so I can get back to how my computer was.

The error code I've been having is 0x124 and I'm attaching a few dump files.

I just recently re-installed win 7 on my computer and had no problems up until about a week ago and now I get BSOD periodically. They usually happedn when I'm watching video, but ,again, sometimes when I'm just doing basic tasks. I have attached the dump files per thread. Next time it happens I will also put up the error codes that I receive. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Basic info:
win 7 32 bit professional, retail version
originally vista machine
about a 4 year old hp machine with a fresh (about 2 weeks old) installation.

Again thanks for any help in advance.

A:BSOD- unexpected hardware failure

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .

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

Some generic advice.

If you are overclocking STOP.
Return to the default settings at least for now.
If you are running a RAID update its driver.

I need some help for a problem that I have with my computer. Quite often, I encounter the BSOD and I don't know why. It happens about 4 times a month and it says that it is due to a hardware failure. I noticed that it happens most of the time after I woke the computer awake from sleep, but not immediately after (maybe 10-15 minutes later). That's pretty much what I know from my BSOD problem, so if you have any specific question I will be glad to help you help me.

Thank you for your help,

A:Random BSOD due to hardware failure

Looking at your files it is very apparent that an Asus charger driver is at fault here as all your crashes point to the same driver as being the problem:

then searching for AIcharger.sys and deleting it. you may be prompted with a UAC prompt to complete this action.

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

The procedure:

* 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.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

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.

A:Possible hardware failure-screen?mobo?-videocard?-Help please+hardware failure?!

You might try re-seating your video card. AGP cards tend to be a bit tricky; even a small point of non-contact can create havoc. If you have access to another video card, you can try swapping video cards and see if the problem goes away. I suppose cable connections are also a possibility, although I have never seen the symptoms you describe with a loose cable.

Are you able to boot into Windoze (sorry, I couldn't tell for sure from your post)? If so, any video-related problems there?

Hope this helps.

Well this started last night as far as i can remember my PC rejecting my new HDD Windows (PSU) Possibly off, Hardware XP Shutting - i m guessing because of the fact my PSU is pretty weak w as far as I can remember I ll check after this And last night i just had random shutdowns Without the shutdown dialog and without a Windows XP - Shutting off, Possibly Hardware (PSU) bluescreen or anything just a total poweroff and it would have been a startup again if i had had that enabled in the BIOS It got progressively worse and worse until it just now won t even get past the windows login screen without completely rebooting I tried unplugging the CD drive The only Windows XP - Shutting off, Possibly Hardware (PSU) other drain on the PSU that I could remove others including CPU Gfx which are pretty mandatory to try and ease the load but I still can t put my finger on it if it s the PSU or not Shop closes in hours so I need to make a decision Any help is appreciated MUCH appreciated The specs are as far as i can remember - AMD x Nvidia GT GB Kingston RAM Asus Mobo Seagate gb Original HDD WD Raptor TB One i tried to put in but PSU assumption didn t like it Nothing is quot old quot per-say besides the PSU which was in the original case which i got years ago EDIT W PSU nbsp

A:Windows XP - Shutting off, Possibly Hardware (PSU)

Power off usually indicates the PSU is bad or overloaded, or CPU overheating. If the CPU cooling fan is turning then my first guess would be PSU.

For the first time ever I built a PC in late July Since the first week of owning it I have gotten the same BSOD once a month at least The BSOD's almost all occurred while gaming as well I also have experienced - PC freezes and I am at a loss I have run Monthly Idea what No Failure, BSOD, it Hardware is! Prime and Intel's Monthly BSOD, Hardware Failure, No Idea what it is! diagnostic program and the CPU has passed both fine I have yet to run Memtest though mostly because I am a bit Monthly BSOD, Hardware Failure, No Idea what it is! fearful of stress testing and don't really know how long Monthly BSOD, Hardware Failure, No Idea what it is! to do it for surprised I even did any with my CPU and just am worried that pushing it to it's max will shorten its life I have not stressed tested my GPU and figured it wasn't the problem as the GPU is at full load a lot of times during most days and these blue screens occur about once a month My hard drives seemed to cause a problem because of the frequent freezes I also cannot put my PC to sleep because it almost always freezes at the welcome screen when it wakes I ran SeaTools diagnostics for my hard drive but it froze my PC instantly I have two of the same hard drive but it only freezes at this moment when I have both hooked up I cloned my main drive to my secondary drive and tried booting with each one hooked up individually In both cases I did not freeze when running SeaTools Both drives also passed its diagnostic tests So here I am at a huge loss I have tried several other forums but people rarely answer and mostly just say to update drivers which I have already done I don't know what else I can do I uploaded the crash dumps in case anyone wants to have a go at it I really hope there is something I am missing Thanks for your time and help

Hello and welcome Rayz mate the memtest would be a good run

MEMTEST one you will need to make a bootable disk set the BIOSto optical (or USB if preferred) boot the machine and let it run for at LEAST 8passes unless the errors come up straight away. Takes fair time to complete andsome leave it running overnight.

But first run these and delete any rubbish you find with the malware scans the ADW just run the Clean button when done.< DO NOT runon a SSD

My cousin desktop has BSOD error all the time and he brought it to me to fix it. I did a clean install of Windows 7 thinking it was a software/driver issues but low and behold, after the clean install finished, a BSOD happen after the first boot. I was also unable to run the Windows Update at all. The Windows Update will 1) get an error code, 2) not respond/freeze, mind you this is all after a clean install. My suspicion is that the hardware are failing but I'm unable to pin point which hardware is failing.

A:Boot/hardware failure related to Windows 10?

You're correct IMO.  It seems highly coincidental, but the symptoms do seem hardware related.
I would first suggest running Startup Repair (for W7) as the system hasn't been updated yet.
Is there any chance that the hard drive is overfull?  If it is, it may not be able to boot because of the lack of room for operations that Windows has to perform.
You can try these bootable hardware diagnostics (if you can boot from removeable media):

Hey everyone.

So I hibernated my pc last night, tried to turn it on this morning and a big fat no. It starts loading windows 7 with its funky loading screen, then I hear my hard drive stop spinning, and my computer will restart. It's tried to fix it twice but no luck. It suggests "remove any plugged in device, music player device disconnect it now and restart windows." But I have only my mouse and keyboard plugged in.

I have my pc set up with dual boot xp, and that'll load up fine running on a partion but off the same hard drive.

I've tried Safe Mode, and Last Known Good Configuration, but both fail.

Any suggestions?

At approximately 3:39 am Central Time July 11 2007 My computer decided to perform its routine Windows Updating and Upon performing the restart, it began an eternal reboot loop of loading somewhat then poof, reboot again, start over, get to the windows xp loading screen and then poof, reboot again. This persisted for about 10 min before i tried a hard boot thinkin it would clear the memory. Safe Mode will not load, And when i try it gets stuck at somefile called SPTD.sys or something like that. The hard drive light comes on but nothing other than an eternal load to nowhere. Is all this sounding like hardware failure or does it sound more like boot sector virus?

Ok, so I moved my vista computer (which I built) today, installed a wireless card, and about an hour later, my computer was frozen. I tryed re-booting with no success. So I thought maybe I had gotten a virus and tryed to do a virus scan in safe mode and it froze yet again. So then I thought it might be overheating, so I took off the side panel, and put a huge fan on the side blowing in. Tryed the virus scan again in safe mode with no luck. So what do you think is wrong? I already did a RMA for the hard drive and my water cooling pump so im not sure if I can replace those.

I have an old custom computer put together in 2002:
Athlon XP Thoroughbred 2400 2.0 ghz
ASUS A7n8x 2.0 Motherboard
1 GB of DDR 3200 memory
6800 GT Nvidia graphics card

I haven't used the computer for several years. Upon turning it on, I noticed that the system was bogged down with 100% cpu on windows xp. Thinking it was malware, I did a fresh install. It took forever for the computer to format the 40gb hard drive. After completing the installation I did the system updates and updated the drivers. The computer still runs at 100% cpu from just using the web browser or moving files. I thought that the hard drive failed. So i put in a new hard drive and installed a new copy of windows xp. Again the same issue.

Other steps taken without results:
Updated BIOS firmware
Replaced Thermal compound on heatsink

What is the problem with my computer? Did something short on the motherboard?

A:100% CPU possibly Hardware

You should check after you install each program and update to track down which one is responsible for the problem. What process is using all the CPU and/or CPU Time?

I did an upgrade on a computer about a week ago. After about 4 days it started BSODing. It wa so bad that I couldnt get the minidump out and have tried reinstalling 7 and even the Vista factory image. However, it would BSOD before the image would fully load. Clearly this is a hardware issue though I unpluged everything I could during the boots. The BSOD right now has the numbers 0x00000050, 0xFFFFFA8086311888, 0XX0000000000000000, 0XFFFFF800108D0AA9, 0X0000000000000005.

Any ideas on what this could be...I need to get this working...

A:BSODs...possibly hardware

Errors loading images would indicate to me that your RAM is faulty.
Try removing all but one RAM module and using the process of elimination you should be able to find which ones are causing the problem.
If you have another OS installed like XP, run MEMTest. If you get ANY errors you know you have faulty RAM.

I had to reinstall windows 7 x 64 today because of a hard drive issue, now i'm getting a BSOD for irql_not_less_or_equal

it seems to happen when i'm copying files off my WD 3 TB External hard drive, but it may just be coincidence.

Thank you for your help

If this were my pc the first thing I would do is boot to Safe MOde and see if the desktop items will work ( to rule out a driver issue ), also if it works in Safe Mode check the Event Viewer, for any errors...

To get into Safe Mode, reboot and start tapping the F8 key, to see the Event Viewer right click on My Computer - Manage - Event Viewer, and check both System and Application for errors or warnings...

Well you could always get a USB mouse instead of a PS2 mouse.

You can also see if you have the Dell diagnostics installed, or urn them from the CD or, download them from the Dell site. You can run those to see what the result of the hardware diagnostics is.

You have 8 GB RAM installed - 4x2. WMI is reporting two different manufacturers. It appears 2x2 + 2x2. Did you upgrade the RAM by adding 2x2? If so, take out 2 matching sticks and see how the system runs on the 2 remaining matching sticks - 4 GB RAM, i.e., Is the system more stable?

I received a hand me down computer from a friend after they got a brand new computer for Christmas. I was given the information that the only issue with it is that it has issues where it will just randomly bsod. It's an older laptop, probably 5-6 years old. I'm not really quite sure how to troubleshoot or repair this issue or even how to find out the root cause. If I could get some assistance that would be much appreciated, thank you in advance.

I built my PC about months ago hardware... Possibly caused Power Issue? by and have had zero problems with it up until the other day I was playing xbox on the same tv that the computer is hooked up to when I noticed that the tower had shut down this is strange because with my power configuration there is no sleep mode or auto shut down I turned on the tower and it started up just fine made it s way to windows and then almost immedietely the tower turned off again no warning no blue screen no black boot screen and no reports at all from the system when I try to reboot it again I first thought it might be a bad PSU so I went a bought a new one replaced it and had the exact same issue Very frustrating So needless to say I Power Issue? Possibly caused by hardware... am kind of stuck trying to figure out what this could potentially be I have checked all connectors and even took out my video card Power Issue? Possibly caused by hardware... in order to go directly from the MOBO with no success After asking some people I know about this issue and chatting with the store where I buy most of my parts I began to find that this was really stumping people So I took the whole thing back to Micro Center here in Kansas and they ran diagnostics and hooked it up to their power supply the tech working on it had the same issue and after days of them toying with it I had a computer back with the same issue and they told me I should try reformatting my hard drive and restarting since some of my windows updates were failing I wiped the drive and reinstalled windows through the Power Issue? Possibly caused by hardware... entire installation process of windows and most of the initial software installs and updates there were no shut down issues not sure if this can be chalked up to luck or if there is something else at play involving the software which I thought to be unlikely I made it through every driver download and installed almost evertything I previously had on the computer Windows was at the point where it was finding no new updates for me to install so I figured I was golden I shut down the tower and went to bed didn t get back to it till the next evening Sat there watching a movie off of an external hard drive and sure enough it shut right off on me just like it did before This is what I have noticed when this problem starts After a day or so of sitting I can come back to the PC and turn it on and almost guaranteed it will turn on with no issue and make it s way to windows with no issue at this point it s really just a matter of time until the thing randomly shuts off could be hours or so could be minutes Once again there is absolutely no consitency in the timing and no obvious programs running or things occuring on the software side that would trigger a shut down of this abruptness Once the computer has intitiated its first shut down of the day I normally try booting it back up almost immedietely the timing can be anywhere from a second after I hit the power switch all the way to when windows is popping up but regardless the computer will inevitebly shut down again It seems to become increasingly frequent and quicker in its shut down time after that first initial boot up No smells form inside the computer all fans appear to be spinning correctly and mind you it s not just me that checked this thing out I had the techs from Micro Center tell me that everything is set up correctly and all the parts are running exactly how they are suppose to no heat issues observable by software Please if anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate it and thank you in advance -Blake Kansas City MO Specs Tower - Corsair Spec- MOBO - ASRock Z Pro CPU - Intel I - k PSU - EVGA Supernova G Memory - Gb Ballistix DDR Hard Drive - WD Black Tb GPU - MSI GTX Gb Windows I mainly use an HDMI cord from my card to my flat screen I also use google fiber internet and it s a wired connection nbsp

Hello everyone,
A week ago I have had reinstalled the OS; since then I got random BSODs, around 4; one related to a failure with system update - I got it fixed. Then, one related with Ethernet drivers, I got it fixed too by installing original drivers from CDs instead of downloading them from the web. However, today I got a BSOD that is possibly related to CPU failure, at least that is all I found out about that error code. Hopefully you'll be able to help me with this one.

Note: I am currently running a CPU stress test on that PC with Prime95 and it shows no warning/errors, the test is being conducted for over 2 hours by now, I started it almost immediately after I found out it may be CPU related.

I was told to try and post in here to see if any experts here can diagnose a possible issue with my Windows Updates behaving oddly They think that while my Windows Update is saying it's up-to-date it really isn't and is skipping updates Here is the reference thread Daily BSOD x MsMpEng exe SINGLE DPC TIMEOUT EXCEEDED In summary I am having BSoD problems possibly something to do with a USB device The BSoD is usually reporting a DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION error code x and it happens sporadically but relatively consistently We're still working on debugging the issue and trying things but one problem of note has been that my relatively new and fresh install of Windows doesn't seem to be grabbing as many updates as are expected There are quite a few files attached to the parent post linked above but I'll insert my windows update logs here for reference I have just run Windows Update and installed all updates it has suggested I have no hidden updates and it says that everything is up-to-date Windowsupdate log Windowsupdate log Full SF Diagnostic Tool output SF - - zip Reference post specifics Originally Posted by blueelvis I am Windows missing updates, Issues, Update possibly BSoD astonished to see that you are seeing only available update On my system Also Windows Pro there are more than updates installed At this point of time I would suggest you to use the device on another Windows machine and see if you are still getting the BSOD Windows Update Issues, possibly missing updates, BSoD or not This is because there are very very few updates installed on the system and that could be causing problems Originally Posted by blueelvis I am just curious as to how come the system has got only updates installed and the system is showing that there are no further updates Sure this driver is provided by Microsoft but there is very well a chance where the base operating system files were updated -Pranav Originally Posted by usasma As such I suspect a USB problem - but am not sure exactly what's causing it Right now I don't even have enough info to guess between hardware and software And normally we discount the possibility of Windows problems - but there's evidence of a problem with your Windows Updates so it could also be a Windows problem Back when Win first came out it was having problems counting the updates This problem was so obvious that I started cautioning people to not rely on the number of updates That problem seems to have gone away as matured - but I have to wonder if your system is still affected by it I call this into question because the drivers starting with USB are very similar to mine - and if your system was so far out of date then I'd suspect to see more problems with older drivers in the memory dumps FYI - the kernel ntkrnlmp exe is dated from Wed Oct - on my system it's dated from Oct Good luck Originally Posted by usasma The time zone difference between date stamps on drivers is a complicated one We decided to stop using date time stamps in the DRT mainly due to that issue What I think is that the system is fully updated - but Windows isn't displaying an appropriate number of drivers The few Windows drivers that I've looked at are all updated to approximately the same level as my system But there is the issue about not displaying all updates - so this may actually be normal for this copy of the OS And there is the issue of Windows Updates errors in the WER section of MSINFO - but the majority of the errors were from Dec with only on Dec only on Jan and only on Jan I'd like to see if the Windows Update amp Activation experts can tell us if the system is fully updated

I became concerned after reading this thread post.
I want to stress that I want to thouroughly clean my system. If wiping everything and starting anew is the only way, just tell me that.

Thanks in advance!

Hi guys I -- system possibly hardware related? Total crashes (south bridge) need a little help diagnosing a weird problem It began when I noticed that my mouse and keyboard weren't being recognized by the BIOS during bootup -- but Total system crashes -- possibly hardware (south bridge) related? oddly enough they were recognized and worked fine once Windows booted I tried a couple of things ended up reflashing the BIOS but no dice Finally I figured out that I happened to have both the KB and Total system crashes -- possibly hardware (south bridge) related? mouse plugged into USB slots in the back of the computer When I plugged them into normal USB slots they were recognized fine by the BIOS Now I'm having random crashes I came to my computer a couple of days ago and it had apparently crashed and rebooted telling me something along the lines of quot please insert valid boot media quot I was terrified that my hard drive fried so I tried rebooting again and this time it worked perfectly And ran for a couple of hours before I got a frozen screen for a couple of minutes it looked like a standard quot firefox locked up quot situation followed by this screen popping up http i imgur com vbOuo jpg for a couple of seconds before the computer crashed and rebooted again So far I've reflashed the BIOS and run Windows' simple boot-disk quot repair errors quot diagnostic Neither helped I'm leaning towards this having something to do with a bad southbridge but I didn't want to run out and buy a new mobo until I know it's the problem As far as I know it could be a bad video card I've had weird pieces of hardware cause weird problems in the past Is there any advice any of you can give for how to go about figuring this out

Cancel your edit by pushing the "Back" button in your browser.

Most likely this can't be done because the program (and driver) are being used at that time.

Boot into Safe Mode and ensure that the driver isn't being loaded, then try it.

I'd recommend against messing with the registry in this way when there's many simpler ways to do this (services.msc, tweaking programs, etc).

My laptop should still be under warranty, so this problem should be covered right? Right now when I try to start up my ACER laptop it makes this clicking sounds, presumably it's the hard drive. What options do I have? Is there any simple solution to fix this? I've only had this laptop for maybe 5 months and did experience random BSODs, one within a week of purchasing. However when I called ACER about it they said only an imminent failure would be covered.
Well, now this is imminent, I was playing some games on my laptop when my PC randomly froze. Then when I turned it on I got the no bootable device error.
Any thoughts on what I should do?

A:no bootable device out of the blue Possibly hard drive failure

Hi achen

If you hear clicking sounds coming from where the hard drive is . That's a sign to replace your drive . If possible remove it and add to a desktop has a slave drive and copy your files over . Files that are in C:\Users\[your account name] , my documents , favorites , my music , my video , and etc .

Yes ACER should replace the hard drive . It is still under warranty .

Yesterday one of my computers began locking up while playing WoW It's freeze up and lots of random colored dots would appear about the screen I rebooted the computer and it happened again Then it began to happen even in Windows without doing anything but having the computer on After a few more crashes I found that the text and graphics on the startup hardware? - BSOD 7 Windows screens BIOS were garbled as well I thought maybe it's a RAM issue so I removed three of the four RAM sticks and left just one same issue So I removed that one and put in another of the RAM sticks which is of the same specs but a different brand exact same issue At this point I surmised that the video card memory might be corrupted We removed the GT MB that was in it and went and bought a GTS GB and tossed it in The BIOS screens were no longer garbled though the computer gave a quot BOOK DISK FAILURE quot error when trying to boot I used to have this problem on my main machine and oddly enough I could place either the Vista disc or Windows disc in the DVD drive and it boots fine WITHOUT booting from disc which makes no sense BSOD Windows 7 - hardware? to me but works I performed a startup repair and that didn't fix it but leaving the disc in the drive resolved the problem entirely as it had in the past on my main machine This method worked to get past the boot disk failure error I got into Windows however only a few minutes later it began to BSOD randomly and frequently I updated the NVIDIA drivers to no avail I reverted to standard MS video drivers also no go I ran the Windows built-in memory test and it came back clean with no errors I also uninstalled Avast Antivirus to ensure that wasn't interfering with the memory while I work through this A review of the memory dumps from the crashes showed many culprits a keyboard driver ntfs system file various nvidia drivers There was no consistency in the dump files that would lead me to a specific piece of software or hardware so at this point I thought it has to be memory I figure data is trying to write to some part of the memory and then causing a crash when it gets to a corrupt part I took out two sticks of RAM and left the other two in running in dual-channel mode The computer started up fine and I launched WoW and ran it all night without any problems I got in and used it this morning for a few minutes before work also no problems Now it's apparently exhibiting the same issues again though with less frequency my bf is at home while I'm still at work Tonight I will try the other two sticks of RAM in place of these two and see what happens During these BSODs and subsequent restarts I noticed a couple oddities on two occasions the computer would not post and instead gave a long beep followed by two short beeps The comp has a Pheonix BIOS and everything I read about Pheonix BIOS stop codes didn't appear to match the tone I heard at all yet the IBM standard post code set as well as other types of BIOS consistently said a long beep with two short beeps is a VGA problem This is on a brand new card though many times the computer would get to the point where it's supposed to bring up the Windows splash screen before it actually gets into Windows and instead quickly blip a blue screen and then reboot itself The next startup would then say it didn't shut down properly and recommend that I perform a startup repair which I would decline and the computer would proceed to load into Windows just fine Anyone have an idea of the possible culprit I'm curious if a failing motherboard or PSU could cause this type of issue Is the RAM still the likely offender Could drivers be the sole cause of this Could a faulty PSU corrupt RAM and VRAM thus ruining my previous video card and RAM at coincidentally the same time Any thoughts on which direction I should take this are appreciated Specs from memory Asus M N-SLI Deluxe AMD AthlonXP GB RAM x GB OCZ x GB Corsair all w identical specs and I think PC but can't remember for sure Therm...

A:BSOD Windows 7 - hardware?

Just for the record as we look at various variables, what is the model of that Thermaltake power supply? Some of their supplies are really weak with the exception of the "Toughpower" series. Have you gone in the bios to look at the voltages and the temps, and if not, do that and report them back.

I bought a laptop for my personal use an year back.. Although, it was from a leading computers' manufacturing firm, I've gone through series of hardware failures within the one year. That's not the end, I was covered with warranty so I managed to replace the items which were malfunctioning or completely gone dead. Now I am out of warranty and am not wiling to spend any money for repairing or replacing it unless I get a minimum of 3-5 years warranty cover for hardware components from the manufacturer or any third-party trustful source at convenient charge. What do you think should I look out for some source or simply dump the one which is causing trouble??

A:Hardware Failure

Well buy reputable brands and they should not fail under normal circumstances.

What hardware in particular is failing?

What brand is the computer?

Recently purchased new motherboard MSI A88XM-E35 and a new CPU cooler because something was wrong with my computer. before all of that happened, The PC ran perfectly. Few days later it started to fail on me. The PC booted good, gpu, case fan and the CPU fan was all running. I didn't know what happened and so I researched online, most people said it was a Motherboard issue. When I installed the new motherboard I still have the same problem! I don't know but it could be a CPU problem. Please help me out here guys. Much appreciated.

My power supply apparantly went bad and messed up 4 of my drives. 3 of them are under warranty and 1 not which is cool. But the problem is that one of them which was a slave to the master contained a whole bunch of valuable information which I would like to recover. Now I tried slaving it off again but it doesn't even get recognized in my bios. So my question, is there any way that I can get this data back either through dos or something. I really need this data bad, and if I have to I will have to pay to get it back but I am trying to avoid that since I heard that is pretty costly. Please help thanks.

Hey all so my problem started maybe two weeks ago ....pc started freezing and slowing down to unusable speeds.

So after trying a few things virus malware removal etc ... I decided to format.

After a format the computer lasts about 3 days and and then all of a sudden freezes and slows down again to the point it is entirely unusable... In the last few weeks I have formatted like 3times ...just so I get some use out of it.

So I assume it's a hardware related problem.......but how do I find out what hardware is causing problem?

The pc ....... Intel core i7-920 2.66Ghz,patriot DDR 3 6Gb ram,His 1GB 5870 VGA,WD SATAN 1TB HDD Running win 7 home 64.

Any help would be appreciated...thx
Oh and no DVD drive on this pc.

Edit.. After about 10attempts this time I was able to system restore....pc seems fine again ...for now lol.

A:Hardware failure?


Problem still persists ......

Seems weird that a system restore is able to fix the problem ..if it's hardware related.

Still same outcome tho ...a few days later and pc fails again...slows,freezes,multiple errors mom.exe and vga driver fails.

Atm I have no idea what's going on ..... Could it be after a format I am downloading the same virus over and over again or is my computer being attacked by some scumbag hacker or just a hardware problem?

Hopefully someone has an idea.

Things to note.... I've run every virus and malware program I can get hold of. I've scanned the HDD for errors with no failures. I've removed each ram stick one at a time, with no results.

Just before pc starts to fail mouse pointer seems to increase in size and type icon ..seems to get much thicker,not sure if that means anything.

Thx for any help.

First, slave your harddrive to another system and you will be able to access your information which you can then burn to a DVD.

Second, while it it is slaved run a harddrive diagnostics on said harddrive,

Hey guys, lastnight i was downloading Runes of Magic on my laptop, then all of a sudden a blue screen appeared, then the laptop shut down. Now when i try to start my laptop goes into start up scan to check for problems. When it gets done it says "remove any plugged in device, music player device disconnect it now and restart windows." Theres no device connected to the laptop, it keep saying that. I think its hard drive failure, but im not too sure. I've been trying to reinstall windows 7 on it but its been stuck at the same place for a long time. Is it a hard drive failure? Or some other hardware failure?

Perhaps. Go into BIOS and see if you can find anything in there. If the hard drive is listed it should work properly (right?)

So recently I've been experiencing some very frightening issues with my Y laptop It is the model with the GB GTX m and GB RAM I've had it Hardware Y50-70 Failure? for around two years and it has worked flawlessly until now Yesterday I updated my NVIDIA drivers to version and updating has never been a problem in the past After updating I decided to play Y50-70 Hardware Failure? some NBA K but was experiencing some weird issues The game crashed twice and some graphical elements werent appearing correctly I decided to restart because sometimes the system requires that when updating the drivers nbsp When restarting after shutting off the screen never turned back on but the system lights were on and functioning as if everything was working properly I tried doing several power cycles but the display simply wouldnt work I opened up the back of the computer to check for any loose cables and the only thing I did see was some tape covering a collection of wires that seemed to be hooked into the display but they looked undamaged and completely attatched After closing it back up I tried starting it while it was still laying somewhat sidways and it then booted just fine I then played a few games for a couple hours and then it all of a sudden lost power with a very loud popping sound This happened again when I managed to get it booted again and my roommate tossed a pen to me which hit the laptop causing it to shut completely off again nbsp I don't know what could be causing the laptop to lose power like this when being hit by something not even that hard nothing like this has happened in the past Now in order to turn it on I have to wait a few minutes before trying or else I'll get the same issue where no display will appear almost as if it needs to cool down or something I ran several diagnostics tests from Lenovo and other SMART tests as well as completely uninstalled my display drivers and then reinstalled a reference one from Lenovo I'm scared to try lightly hitting it to see if I can replicated the issue where it loses complete power because I don't want to damage anything nbsp Also when I tried playing K again the game was taking incredibly long to load in took around minutes when it usually takes less than seconds When the game finally did load after about five minutes of playing the display on the laptop went haywire with a flash of colors and some really loud and frightening electrical sounds and the device completely lost power again I have since run more diagnostics tests and virus scans but they all report no issues I'm at a loss for what to do here because the laptop's warranty is expired and I wonder if I'll ever be able to use it reliably again nbsp Sorry for making a huge wall of text I just wanted to provide as much detail as possible I have attatched one of the diagnostics logs just in case they are of use to anyone nbsp Thanks Report doc KB

A:Y50-70 Hardware Failure?

That really doesnt sound like a software problem. I am guessing you HDD is failing, are you sure those were electrical noises and not coming from the HDD? Did you check the power supply, the cable or used a diffrent socket? Open up the laptop, clean it of dust, especially the heatsinks. Check for any kind of wire that has lost its insulation and is exposed. Also check if something like e.g a paperclip has made its way into the laptop causing short circuits

A:BSOD + (Windows SP1 Failure)

Can you get into Windows at all? Even Safe Mode?

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests. 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:


H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
HD Diagnostic (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

This is an infrequent error that means that the registry couldn't find enough space to load in memory. Since it's early in the boot process, this shouldn't happen - so I suspect a RAM issue (although the HDD could also be at fault).

Run the diagnostics above and let us know the results. We'll move on from there.

Been having problems with this new ITX system. Changed motherboard 4 times, changed CPU once. In order to keep it short, I won't elaborate on the problems happened in the last 3 times.

This time around, I get 3 BSODs within a day after installing new motherboard and freshly installed Windows 7 64-bit. The third BSOD happened while running the dump & system collection app.

The necessary files are attached. Additional info below:

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x64
- Reinstalled OS on the system
- OEM version of Windows 7 (disc given)
- Age of hardware: Less than a month (motherboard is only one-day old)
- Age of OS: Less than one-day old

Please help to shed some light on what's wrong.

Thank you very much.


A:BSOD - Fresh Hardware & Windows 7 Installation


What Model PSU are you using?

The dump files do not point to a 3rd party driver as a probable cause, meaning that it is either a "hidden" driver or hardware. As your drivers look ok, and you have re-installed several times I suspect hardware on this one.

Run a memtest yet?

Memtest - Instructions:

Download the ISO (or the .exe for USB drives) from here Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

Then (if you have chosen the ISO) burn the ISO using IsoRecorder: ISO Recorder v3 Download (How to use IsoRecorder)

Boot from the CD/USB and run the test (at least 7 passes per test) with only one stick of RAM in place at a time.

It is a time consuming process but it is the only way to be sure it isn't a RAM fault.

For your final test, run the test with all the RAM in place.

Hi mate.

I did some googleing and found some clues.

The 0x9c error seems to be related to a bug in hardware (since you have changed your RAM, maybe your CPU is having troubles?)
However I could only find stopreasons for 32bit CPU's and Itanium CPU's.

On the 0x124 error I found some info on (yet again) hardware error and it is recommended to try updating all i\o drivers (videocard, soundcard, chipset, etc)

Good luck, see if you can write down any more specific bluescreens.

I'm new to this sort of thing so please bear with me. I have a Windows 7 64bit computer and I keep getting a BSOD. The dumps all tell me that I have a hardware error but I can't isolate it. I have swapped out my RAM chips, disabled my NIC, swapped out my video cards and I keep getting the same error. Attached is my analysis from the Microsoft Diagnostic and Recovery Tool. Let me know if you need anything else?

A:BSOD - Windows 7 64bit - Hardware Error 124


Have you tested your hard drive? Go to the manufacturer's site and download their advanced diagnostic tools.

Also, are you overclocking? If so, stop, and see if the problem goes away. If you are running RAID, try updating the drivers.

Good luck!

Windows 7 Home Premium
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz 2.67GHz
6.00GB RAM
64-bit operating system

current hardware issue : intel(R) 82567LF-2 Gigabit Network Connection

After a proper shutdown and some hours of rest for the CPU, i turned it on, and found that my LAN(Wired) connection was not connected upon startup, there's no PC activity on the modem itself.

Modem is working fine, Eternet cable is working fine. i had used the same modem and cable for my laptop, internet runs fine, there's PC activity.

this would mean that the problem for my no access for LAN connection, would be hardware issue in the CPU itself. upon opening device manager, intel(R) 82567LF-2 Gigabit Network Connection seems not abled to function as per normal, a note 'Device is not working properly.' i tried using window's troubleshooter to resolve the issue. issue resolved as stated, but there's still no access to internet through lan connection. even it says 'Device is working properly'.

Good diagnosis. This crash was caused by your e1y62x64.sys
which is part of your Intel network driver. I would download a fresh copy and install it.

I would also run a system file check to verify and repair your system files too do that type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow (not the space between sfc and ".")

If you are overclocking stop.
