Repeated BSODs

Q: Repeated BSODs

Over the past week I have been getting several BSOD restarts. I downloaded SP1 (running Vista), but it happened again today. I do not have the right program to read the .dmp files, and when I tried to attach them it wouldn't let me. The error codes from before the SP1 install were:
BCCode: a
BCP1: 00000004
BCP2: 0000001B
BCP3: 00000000
BCP4: 81CB1F60
OS Version: 6_0_6000
Service Pack: 0_0
Product: 768_1

and the codes from today were:
BCCode: 19
BCP1: 00000020
BCP2: 83FA3F58
BCP3: 83FA3FC8
BCP4: 080E0002
OS Version: 6_0_6001
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 768_1

Thanks in advance for any help!

Preferred Solution: Repeated BSODs

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.)

I have a HDTV consisting of a GA-P55A-UD7 and an Intel I7 processor and W7x64. It is hooked up to a Panasonic P50V10 plasma TV via HDMI. Over the last several months, I have gone through THREE video cards. The last one lasted only three days. I doubt my luck can be that bad regarding video cards so it must be something else. I have never heard of a monitor blowing video cards via an HDMI interface but anything is possible I guess. Any suggestions?

I woke up on May 10th 2013 & when it started up my laptop I saw this.

I was a bit scared, but I decided to run the following programs:
Mbam (AV)
Disk cleanup
Disk defragmenter
Scan disk (SCR-scanow)
AVG tuneup
Restore point.
I do not know what happened, but I have posted on several other forums, but no answer.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


This is a very common bugcheck.
EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 - The instruction at "0x%08lx" referenced memory at "0x%08lx". The memory could not be "%s".

PROCESS_NAME: explorer.exe
IMAGE_NAME: win32k.sysClick to expand...


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

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

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

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

Have you considered the possibility of Malware/Virus?
If you think this could be a possibility, then check...
Be sure to follow all the steps carefully.

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

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

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

So after a long time of not posting, and still trying to figure out my BSOD's:

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

A:BSODs and now bad display

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

Put the original back in.

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

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

A:Lots of bsods, cant find the reason

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

I scanned over your post. What I see here is the need for you to exchange your ram for something more compatible. And your ram seems to be faulty.

Try updating the sound drivers. That dump crashed at a sound driver with a (usually) hardware related bugcheck. Post some more dump files if it continues to crash.

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

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

i repeatedly get a blue screen on my HP Pavilion laptop with Windows XP. it says the usual, "a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer." it restarts every time before i can get the whole message. but i got this code from the blue screen:

0x000000F4 (0X00000003, 0x822BCDA0,...

there are more parameters, but i didn't write them down yet.
when the laptop restarts it gets stuck and never finishes bringing up Windows. so i shut it off and wait a few minutes to start it back up. after several minutes i can turn it back on and windows will come up normally. but inevitably, i will get another blue screen with the same message, and the whole mess starts over again. any ideas?

A:Repeated Blue Screens and Restarts

Your copy of windows is corrupt, possibly caused by a failing hard drive.
If you have data on the drive you need to retrieve, you need to take the drive out and connect it to a desktop using a special adapter.
If you are not bothered and already have it all backed up you could run the system recovery routine from the CDs that came with the machine. If the drive is bad the recovery process will probably detect it.

I have been getting seemingly random BSODs and deep freezes lately. They are not totally random, i.e. they happen after starting or exiting programs, but not always. Only sometimes. I might run a program and get a deep freeze, and then upon reboot, running the same program again does nothing. Can anyone tell me what is going on? Thanks. Following is my minidump.

A:Random BSODs

Your minidump crashes at ntkrnlpa.exe and references verclsid.exe as the owning process.

The verclsid.exe file is known to cause problems and could be the cause of your problems too.

See HERE and HERE for more info.

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

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

A:Daily BSODs

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

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

Actions taken thus far:

1) reinstalled Windows XP SP2

2) replaced HDD and reinstalled Windows XP SP2

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

4) replaced video card and used different monitor

5) new CDRW and new data cables

6) new 400 w P/S

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Good luck mate and great flash movies BTW.

A:Repeated Hard Drive Access w/ Wireless Connection Enabled

The hard drive will not wear out.

Since it is an old computer it might have too little RAM and it needs to access the swapfile to do background tasks. Try disabling some resident programs and see what happens. It may also be your firewall software writing logs or something similar.

First download and run the Memtest86+ programme from

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

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

A:Repeated BSODs, NIC card at fault ?

welcome to techspot.


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

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

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

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

Thanks and Regards

Okay so, I get random blue screens during any game I play. I can play Lineage 2 for hours before I get a BSOD or a pink blurry screen.

I haven't been able to track down the cause of bsod's I've been getting recently. I have attached the last three minidumps as a zip file; I don't know whether anyone can help.

I'm using the latest version of all the drivers etc. (in this case, Intel rst-e (enterprise), not plain rst). (Did not get any memory errors with memory checkers.) Thank you.

Sweet system!

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

They're not always the same call-out, and was wondering if you could help me get to the bottom of it.

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

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

Desktop icons load slowly (placeholder icons load right away, but the specific icons for the items load 1 evrey 5 seconds). I get a message about Zone Alarm being expired (not part of theproblem, but letting you know it executes Zone Alarm just before the BSOD occurs).

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

Your UEFI/BIOS (version 0207) dates from 2007.  Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system.  If you are able to install the update through Windows (without booting from an external drive), then go ahead and update it.  WARNING - if the computer might shut down during this procedure, please don't do it, as this may physically damage the computer and prevent it from booting.
Only 1 Windows Update installed.  Most systems have 300 or more (this includes SP1).  Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).
You have 2 problems in Device Manager.  The first is a PS2 keyboard.  If you are using a USB keyboard this error is safe to ignore.
The other problem is the Asus ATK0110 ACPI Utility driver.  Please visit the Asus website and install the latest, Win7 compatible version for your system.  If it's not availaable, please post back as there are several different programs that it's included in (and, it may also be obtained through Windows Update).  FYI - using an outdated version of this driver (2006 or earlier) is likely to cause BSOD problems also.
Beyond that, there's not much evidence of problems with the system.  If (after updating the ATK0110 driver and the Windows Updates) you still have problems, please start with these free hardware diagnostics:

A:Series of 124 BSODs

Hello KCBluesman and Welcome to this Bleeping website!
Just as a test, boot into Safe Mode and run the computer for a couple of hours. Let me know if your crashes stop, or do they continue. If you don't know how to access Safe Mode, your user's manual will tell you. If you don't have one, SM is usually accessed by tapping one of the F-Keys (try F8 or F11 first) on boot. If you can run in SM without crashes, reboot and try Safe Mode with Networking (that will enable internet connection). Let me know the results of each.

Hi, for the past month or so, I've been dealing with random BSODs on my windows 7 laptop (Sager NP4658), can someone tell me what's causing them?  I've attached the dump files from the last month to this post.
I've already done a chkdsk which found no corruptions, SFC 'did not find any integrity violations', and verifier.exe (only tested all non-microsoft drivers) found no problems.

A:Frequent BSODs for the past month

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum): Out of 7 memory dumps there were 6 different BSOD error codes.  The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things (the list is not in any sort of order):- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.- dirt/dust/hair/fur/crud inside the case.  Blow out the case/vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum as they can cause damage to the system)- missing Windows Updates- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems- low-level driver problems- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from or ).Please get a head start on the hardware diagnostics - they are located here: Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen both dtsoftbus01.sys and dtscsibus.sys blamed on several occasions).Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration):  New link (15 Aug 2012): (pick the appropriate version for your system and select "Un-install" when you run it).Alternate link: procedure here: following is for informational purposes only.[font=lucida console]**************************Thu Jun 11 20:20:10.037 2015 (UTC - 4:00)**************************

May 27Hi -I see that Windows was reinstalled on 19 May 2015. You only have 18 Windows Updates installed; there should be ~125-150. Please check for outstanding Windows Updates & allow all to install.I assume you had BSODs in the prior Windows installation...? Was the system overclocked then too?Is o/c reset to default at this time?I did see driver RTCore64.sys in several VERIFIER_ENABLED dumps (bugcheck = 0xc4) a good move to remove the offending driver in this case where Driver Verifier flagged it.The other VERIFIER_ENABLED dump (also bugcheck 0xc4) that named 88d79cdf_a4bf_4bfc_9cf0_c9ca4be1a6fb was likely a dynamically allocated driver (allocated on the fly); probably belonging to Speccy, but am not 100% positive of that.From the dump, we find Speccy listed as the process (last line) -

This theory is bolstered by the fact that BSODs continued after reinstalling Windows and in fact occurred on the very same day.Run memtest86+ again, but run each stick in each slot one at a time. 7 passes minimum - Crucial support for a firmware upgrade for your Crucial CT240M500SSD1 SSD - noticed that you have 2x4GB RAM; however, the sticks don't appear to be matched. They are the same speed (1333), but appear to have other minor differences as well as different manufacturers. I would suggest that you try running on a single stick (doesn't matter which one - try both separately) and see if the BSODs continue.Regards. . .jcgriff2

So customer had 2 regular drives. 1-boot and 1-storage. Added a SSD as the new boot drive. kept the old C: as more storage. After fresh install of Win 7, machine worked fine for hours. BSOD then fine for a while, bsod (too quick to see errors) Thought I had it fixed by resetting RAM and moving RAM slots. Worked 36 plus hours then bsod. Uploading zip files as requested.

0x116 errors are due to video driver timeout. We suggest you do the following...

1. Download Driver Sweeper free version to your desktop screen and install.

2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper but ONLY for the video card drivers. I had someone use it on their chipset drivers! If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay; just leave all other drivers alone.

4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.

The minidumps are:
all with Ntoskrnl.exe

Is the SSD boot drive set as AHCI in the bios and on a SATA 3 port?

Hey guys
I've been suffering a lot of BSoDs on my PC recently (as stated above, it's a HP Pavillion p6565uk) and I can't for the life of me work out why. I've opened it up and cleaned up the dust, I've not installed any new hardware or software so I'm assuming it's a hardware error but I don't know how (or if) I can work out what is broken. I've attached the last 4 minidump files, if anyone could point me in the right direction I'd seriously appreciate it.


A:HP Pavillion p6565uk (no mods) - frequent BSODs

What version of Windows is this running? What are you doing when the BSOD's are most likely to happen? The minidumps may be pointing to memory issues. Test the memory with Memtest86:

So, I have been working on fixing my uncle's computer and have had no luck.
It has has this problem before and they got it fixed, but now its back. I am encountering 2 BSODs actually one when i try to boot windows and one when I try to run the installation cd.

The BSOD on boot is 0x0000007B
The BSOD when using the installation cd is 0x0000007E, pci.sys problem.

Now i have run memtest86 got nothing, run the DellDiag tools and got nothing, eventually i tried to give up and ran Dell's Automated System Recovery(Symantec Ghost).

The Computer is a Dell XPS 410
It used to have a raid array installed now there is only 1 hard drive, probably the other tech's way of fixing it. Also there is no floppy drive installed and as far as I can tell there is no floppy power cable.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Multiple BSODs please help

First question, you mentioned that one BSoD happens when you run the Windows installation CD. Does it happen before it completes Windows Setup (first sceen where it asks you something, i.e. install Windows or use Recovery Console) or is it later? The reason I ask is that I have a strong inclination that this is a hard drive problem based on the information you gave. The only question is about the BSoD to do with the installation CD.

Back up everything NOW. Your harddrive is cited as the issue. Run a harddrive diagnostics especially the Long test.

I've been received BSOD's and freezing during start-up or even during boot mode for the past two days on my toshiba laptop. It's a miracle that I'm even able to use Safe mode at the moment -- it took me like 10 tries -- so I'm trying to type this up quickly before I encounter another problem.
Here are the dumps.

A:BSODs on Toshiba Satellite notebook

The most defitive minidump error is 0x000000D3: DRIVER_PORTION_MUST_BE_NONPAGED
Basically a driver is attempting to access a higher IRQ Level as paged when it actually should be non-paged. This results in system crashes.

The driver in question is kl1.sys which belongs to your Kaspersky antivirus. Try uninstalling it via Safe Mode and reboot. Then reinstall and see if that helps.

So can you back down the over-clock to stop the BSOD's? Any minidumps?

I have been experiencing a few BSOD's on my desktop ever since I put a fresh install of Windows on it. I have never actually been using it when it BSOD'd, but I know that there were probably not any applications running (except for those running in the background.) This leads me to believe that it is hardware related. I am attaching the four Minidumps for those who know how to read them.

Edit: I forget to mention that I have run a Memtest on both sticks of RAM. They came up fine.

The pc randomly BSOD's without warning. I upgraded BIOS and upgraded firmware in SSD, that didn't solve the problem.

I have tried stresstesting RAM with Memtest86, tried stressing the cpu with Prime95, tried stressing the gpu with Furmark... neither of this can recall the BSOD..

Any ideas?

All the minidumps are the same:
Is the SSD set on a SATA3 port and configured as AHCI in the bios?
