I am by no means a computer expert so please bear with me here. I recently purchased all the necessary parts for my new computer and had it built by a friend who has done various builds for me in the past. I have been getting frequent BSODs. At first I thought it was related entirely to Skyrim, but I have also had a BSOD while burning a DVD and at idle. My system specs are as follows:
It is a retail version of Windows and everything is brand new.I have done the following: Malware test using Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and have found nothing.Uniblue DriverScanner is showing all drivers up to date.I ran Prime95 and had no issues (temps stayed normal)I ran FurMarks and had no issues (again normal temps)I ran MemTest and the RAM passed without issue.I used HD Tune on the SSD and there also did not appear to be any problems.I have disabled Avira AV and still have the BSOD I updated the firmware on my SSD.I updated by bios I have installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled by GFX drivers.Nothing appears to be working and I would really like to get this issue resolved as soon as possible.Fortunately, since I just bought the parts at a local computer store I can return them for a direct swap if one of the parts is the issue. I have attached the memory dumps.
I get a computer crash while im playing skyrim. Its currently the only task I'v been experiencing this crash. The computer freezes, in the last frame of the game. I get a nasty sound in my headset, like a eletric interface kinda sound. The keyboard and mouse gets disabled (no lights or response)
I have a whole new computer, with new parts. running windows 7 professional 64bit
My computer has been working fine for almost a year now, and the BSOD just started two days ago while playing Skyrim. I thought it was just Skyrim, so I stopped playing that and just left it for a while. Today, my computer got the BSOD during normal flash gaming, and then again 30 or so minutes later when I was trying to post here.
Info: Problem signature: Problem Event Name:BlueScreen OS Version:6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3 Locale ID:1033
my computer is giving me a hard time with all this BSOD.It works fine when im just surfing the net or watching videos, but when Im playing games like Skyrim, ME3 or Witcher 2 it just suddenly hangs and BSODs.The least time for this to happen is 20 mins and the longest time for this to happen is 4 hours. Which in those games cases is a short time.My Windows 7 is
- x64 - the original installed OS on the system? Yes
- an OEM or full retail version? OEM = came pre-installed on system
- What is the age of system (hardware)? Nov 10, 2012
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) Same as hardware.
I was playing Skyrim last weekend, and the game froze on a black screen just as it was cutting to a kill animation. I had to restart the computer but when Windows loaded I had a BSOD. The computer booted fine up till this point.I've been looking up causes and fixes all week, and the dump files seem to suggest a 0x116 Video_TDR_error. I've attached all the requested information.I've already tried installing several different graphics drivers - the newest, the one supplied with the card, and one between. Windows and DirectX were fully up to date. I've also tried formatting the hard drive and installing Windows fresh, twice. I've had the computer back to the state it arrived in, when the drivers worked fine, and I've tried it with only the video drivers installed. Everything I try now is still resulting in the same BSOD.I can only get Windows to load in Safe Mode, or if I go into Device Manager and disable my graphics card. I am now fairly convinced the card itself is the problem, and I'm looking for confirmation before I go and get a new one fitted.The computer was new at the end of November. I had the same Windows install since then, but now I'm running a fresh install.
a crash occurred while i was playing skyrim,when i am in open world scree goes black within few minutes and weird noises start coming.Same thing happened while i was playing eflc.

2 nights in a row my machine has shut down instantly whilst i have been downloading many torrents via utorre### and playing skyrim or within seconds of closing down skyrim. to start up the machine i have to switch of the psu and unplug it. then plug it back in and witch it on. i have experienced these types of crashes before on a diferent machine. a have a sturdy 1000w psu. and even though i have multi tasked these two programs before. this is the beginning of a bad day
I've built this PC a week ago (first time) I installed windows, all the windows updates. I could get and drivers from my manufacturer(s) sites. However, when I'm downloading a file, or watching a movie, playing games it suddenly BSOD, I looked through the crash files, and almost every crash has been a different error.
My PC: Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth Z77 CPU: i5-2500k GPU: EVGA Geforce 670 2gb PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 600W RAM: 2x4gb Corsair Vengeance OS: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit retail.
Everything built and installed a week ago. Also, no overclocking has been done.
My computer will crash at random times when playing WoW. When it happens, my computer will kind of hang there, and everything will freeze except I can use my mouse, but about 1 min later I'll BSOD. When I BSOD, my POST hangs at a black screen before the MSI screen, where it says A2 in the bottom right corner, which changes to A3 eventually, then it loads.
When it crashes via my keyboard crashing, I'll randomly be typing (pretend the last key I hit was 'n') it will spam the 'n' button and nothing else, kind of like the drivers crashed. The only thing I can do is log out of windows and as soon as I hit log out it crashes. And the most obvious one, when I come back from work and my computer is on I'll sometimes come back to a BSOD, or a black screen that says an error has occurred. I've attached the SF diagnostic results.
A couple of months ago, I bought a new graphics card: a Nvidia 560GTX (Gigabyte GV-NV56GOC) and a new PSU (Corsair CX500 V2 Builder Series, 500 W) to run it and after 3 weeks the PC began to fail with the 116 error.At the begining it crashed only at Windows 7 blue starting screen (after the loading screen with win logo and a progress bar). It happened once every 4 or 5 days.After a month it was almost imposible to run unless starting in "FailSafe Mode" and began to crash in the desktop in idle. I tested it with another drivers, clean installs, changing cabes, etc... and nothing worked, only with another graphics card (an old nvidia 220GT wich came with the PC) and worked properly so I decided so send the card in RMA.
A couple of days ago the seller sent me an email saying that they couldn't find any issue with the 560GTX and they sent the card to Gigabyte to further testing (I wil have to wait 20-30 days to have more info). Yesterday my PC with the old card (the 220GT) began to fail while playing Skyrim with a grey screen and a strange buzz in the speakers. After 2 seconds it restarts saying that there was an system error bccode 116. Today it has crashed 4 times in 5 hours while playing (same as yesterday), "youtubbing" or (I think, but not sure than) in idle with a white screen and a strange buzz in the speakers, but not starting like with the 560GTX.
I had to change my HDD a month ago too so I tested in 2 diferent HDDs, drivers are OK and I guess that the PSU is enough for the new card and more than enough with the old one. I also ran sfc.exe /scannow witho no problems.I'm running Windows Home Premium x64 (Service Pack 1) OEM, reinstalled one or 2 months ago. I will attach minidump files with errors of both cards.
I've been getting BSODs randomly while playing Arma 2 with the Dayz mod. At first I thought it must be something with the game but I've also gotten BSODs playing Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad but I've also played other games like Portal 2 without problems. Thinking it might be driver related I did a fresh install of windows but to no avail.Half the time the game will crash randomly anywhere from 10 minutes of play to 4 hours giving a 0x000005 exception code. The other half of the time my computer will hang and BSOD giving me a different bccode almost every time. The most recent is 10007e and the only other one I remember is d1 which is one of the few that I've gotten multiple times.The Windows Desktop Manager has also crashed twice but I'm not sure it that is related.It was custom built a year ago and was problem free until about a month ago when the BSODs start. They stopped for a while but started again about a week or two ago.
im getting bsod errors mostly when playing games like mass effect 3 on my acer 5738g notebook. im getting these errors very recently and had no sort of problems in the past. i have attached the complete dump and also sfc log.Sys Spec:Windows 7 32bitIntel core 2 duo processor4GB RAM320GB HDDNVIDIA G105M G-card with 512 dedicated vram
I am getting BSODs while playing games. They are irregular and can happen every half hour or several hours in between.
Rig is: Asus Sabertooth P67 (latest bios 3029, after installing these more problems occured) Intel i5 CPU Nvidia Geforce 9800GT Corsair Vengeance 4gb x 4
All drivers are the latest. Graphics, chipset, SATA, BIOS and so forth. I have run both memtest86 which showed no errors in individual testing of the memories but when I had them all in and ran it an error showed up. I have done the chkdsk. Both /f /r and without it. Did show up errors but claims to be fixed now.
Ntoskrnl is the driver that always shows up. What I really need to know is if this is a hardware or driver problem. My biggest question is if it is a motherboard issue or not. I had bsod problems before I updated BIOS but they happened more frequently after. Attaching the three latest minidumps.
I started getting BSOD two weeks ago. As far as I can remember the first time I had a BSOD was on the day I installed Max Payne 3 (I read somewhere that the some guy had also this problem when he installed max payne). There were two occasions that I got a BSOD upon starting Max Payne 3. But lately I'm getting BSOD when doing low-load stuffs like browsing with no other apps opened. I've already done memtest with 10 passes with no errors. I'm 24 hours prime95 stable. I just don't get it! I've manually set my timings for my ram. I'm not doing any overclock. Everything is on stock settings.
here runs Skyrim on their PC but As the title says, How much RAM would I need to have in order to play The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with NO lag, freezing, lag spikes, etc ?Updated my System Specs for reference. And I am planning to add more RAM, I don't know how much I should get though.
Here are my current computer specs: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.60GHz 2.00 GB RAM 32-bit Operating System AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series
I understand 2.00 GB is not a good amount for Skyrim as it continuously lags and freezes. What I need to know is how much RAM and/or other parts could I upgrade to make it run nice and smoothly, with hardly any if not no lagg at all? Also my motherboard has 4 slots for RAM, would it be possible to run 8GB ram on a 32-bit system?
My problem is that my boyfriend has blocked access to Skyrim, so that I can't play during work hours. If I try to run Skyrim it says: "Application not found". But other than that I'm afraid I know nothing about how he's done it!
I wanted to get Skyrim for my laptop but the one weakness with my Sony Vaio is that it uses Intel HD Graphics 3000 integrated graphics and I was wondering if it will be playable. Also, if it can play it will it be playable at my laptops screen resolution of 1366x768?
Whilst playing Skyrim "it automatically detected Ultra High Settings on my AMD Radeon HD 7850 graphics card, with updated drivers" white lines began flashing, then odd shapes started appearing on the screen. I tried it in low quality and still the same problem. Surely such a graphics card would be able to handle Skyrim. I have no mods on texture packs and have not touched the files
I've had a nightmare with my computer over the last week with various random crashes whilst play Rift. Now I am struggling to even get past the starting video for Skyrim as the game is freezing and crashing (with the dreaded BSOD). When I see the screen it mentions the atikmpag.sys error.
- Windows 7 x64 - Original OS installed on my PC. - OEM version - PC came pre-built and is 4 months old - Intel Core i5 2500K Sandy Bridge Processor - Asus P8P67 PRO Motherboard - 4GB PC3-10666 DDR3 Memory - Radeon HD 6870 1024MB Video Card
I played the game for 100 + hours without problem, then this problem appears. Skyrim freezes then resumes then freezes every 5 seconds after playing for a few minutes. I tried re-installing the game, lowering the graphics to low, removing all mods. This is also not a savegame issue, it happens even in a new game. Also tried running in windowed mode, did not fix the issue. I also tried using game booster(to see if a background is causing this). I also tried running the game in my Windows XP partition, got the same problem. I do have the latest drivers and patch. One thing I have noticed is my CPU load goes from around 90% to 30% during the freezing.
I've been getting BSOD everytime I run a game which is graphic intense(like skyrim).I am using Alienware M17x with dual SLI with dual NVIDIA GTX 280m. I used to have a broken adaptor so I've been using a lower voltage adaptor that did not charge the laptop and used the Geforce 9800. This problem has been occuring ever since I got my new adaptor and has been using the 280m.
