Recently I built my first gaming PC and I have started having occasional BSOD's when gaming. Here are my specs.
RAM = Crucilal Ballistix 8GB kit 1600 2 x 4GB
GPU = Sapphire HD 7970
CPU = intel i5 4670k
Motherboard = Asus Z87 A
HDD = Western Digital Blue 1TB
SSD = Samsung Evo 120GB
CPU Cooler = Hyper 212 EVO Processor Cooler
PSU = Corsair CX750M
Optical Drive = LiteOn IHOS104 4x BD-ROM SATA Blu-Ray
The errors that appear when my PC restarts are to do with memory dumping.
I have recently installed fresh Windows 8 on my laptop - HP 6735b. Installation went smooth, it has installed all the drievers on his own, I just installed few more applications and within few days, problems appeared. I'm getting BSOD on startup, but sometimes it starts normaly and after few minutes/hours - BSOD appears.
i have done a fresh install a couple weeks ago and have just been enduring this constant crash but it generally occurs after pc has gone to standby/sleep overnight and i see it when i return to the PC in the morning.

I have a new laptop and am trying to work out the kinks
Its a new Windows 8.1 build. But seems to be causing all kinds of problems. And honestly i'm not sure where to start trying to fix it. I think its driver related but have tried updating a few drivers with varying success (as even this has led to some BSODs)
Every time i open my notebook for example when i arrive at home,my notebook welcomes me with that error. but after this i can work on notebook , browse, and anything you can do without experiencing any error.
My notebook is: Acer aspire 5742G 4GB ram DDR3 Geforce GT540M (1GB) Intel Core i5 500GB HDD
This pops up sometimes on the desktop after I power on
Your PC RAN into a problem: C:WindowsMinidump-40214-46000-01.dmp C:WindowsMEMORY.DMP C:UsersUserAppDataLocalTempWER-104406-0.sysdata.xml
It asked me to send details to windows and I sent. I don't know what's the problem and these are the only other problems I experienced: 1)Slower cold booting 2)It takes a longer time for the lights to off after shutting down. We can only turn the switch off after the lights off
Recent PC activities: 1) Defragmentation for OS(C) and Data(D) 2) Installed and played The Sims 3 (usage is around 9GB) with Mods 3) OS(C) Disk Cleanup deleted items: Downloaded Program files, Temporary Internet files and Temporary files (not sure if I deleted System Error Memory Dump Files & System Error Minidump Files or not)
I have begun experiencing BSOD frequently but the system does not leave a dump file even though it is configured for that and has the page file enabled with more than adequate memory allotted. I'm attaching the file for review and comment.
I bought my Sony VAIO flip on 12 Feb this year. At the beginning of April it started frequently crashing (a few times a day when using it on my commute and in the evening). It (almost) always crashes with a BSOD, but no error code, and no crash dump generated. About a quarter of the time, upon restarting from the crash, its says "Couldn't start Windows. Internal SSD not found". I'd keep restarting it and it would fail to start with the same error. If I leave it for a while (30 mins+), it restarts fine, until the next crash.
Given the 'SSD not found' errors, I had assumed it was a hardware fault with the drive failing intermittently. This would also explain the lack of crash dumps if the drive had issues and Windows couldn't write to it. However, I've read around and found some SSDs displaying this behaviour after a crash due to unexpected power loss to the drive, so I'm now wondering if this is a symptom not a cause.
Furthermore, windows restore does show windows updated some drivers at the beginning of April when the crashes started.
I did have one crash with and error code and a dump (24th April) but this is the exception. From the event log (occurrences of id 41 "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first") I can see crashes a few times a day every day I've used the computer in April:
I keep getting a Mini dump Error, tried to copy n paste it, wouldn't allow, then took screenshot, and lost it - so next time it happens i`ll edit and upload it - in mean time here is my reports, hope rar is ok....
For the past few weeks I have been experiencing random, albeit infrequent, BSOD's.
1. Occurred while using Thunderbird 2. Occurred while using Firefox 3. Occurred while playing Dota 2
I had several processes open behind the programs listed.
What tends to happen is that the mouse and/or keyboard stops working before the computer crashes. Then it stalls at the Bios screen and will not boot up without a restart.
A few things: 1. The CPU is overclocked, but the overclock was working well on prior installations. The other systems used MBR as opposed to GPT which the current system uses. (Don't know if this matters). 2. I made a few changes to the system settings to try and optimize my SSD (see: The SSD Optimization Guide Redesigned | The SSD Review and SSD tweaker)
So for the past 8 days I've been getting BSOD's (Kernel Data Inpage Error) randomly about once a day, without any dumps or logs being created, despite the settings being right and WERS service running.
Two weeks ago my 2 year old SSD (Corsair Force GT) died. Bios would freeze at around 70% when trying to boot off it, other computers wouldn't recognize it, it was basically bricked (i suspect the controller, since I only had it for 2 years, and only used for OS). So I sent it back, and they ended up giving me a different model (Corsair Force GS).
I performed a fresh install of Windows 8.1 Pro x64 on the new SSD, and ever since then I've been having the BSOD's. At first I suspected a driver problem, but Windows says all drivers are up to date and there's another weird thing happening: after the BSOD, when restarts and tries to boot up again, the BIOS freezes at around 70% again (around the time when it communicates with the default boot device), and I have to manually shut it down (from the power button), and turn it back on again(this time it works fine, and writes the 'Event 41, Kernel Power' event to logs).
I suspect it's the SSD again, but I can't explain it. It's been driving me crazy for the past week, especially since I also use this laptop (Acer Aspire 5737z) for work.
I built a new computer for my girlfriend, which of course ran fine at my house for 4 days, and even passed 12 hours of prime95. She lives over an hour away, and since I left a few days ago, she has had multiple problems with BSOD's. It seems to occur far more often when powering the computer on, and then it often takes multiple attempts to get the pc running - but once it is running, it seems to be somewhat stable. It seems to be somewhat random whether it will power up normally.
Some basic hardware info: Intel Pentium G3258 with stock cooler running at stock speed (3.2) Corsair XMS 2x4GB DDR3 1333 Gigabyte GA-H81M-DS2V motherboard Hanns-G HT231DPBU Touchscreen monitor Plextor M6S SATA3 (6Gb/s) solid state Corsair CX430M PSU
I am not sitting at the PC now, but I did manage to get her to send me the minidumps. However, I am not able to figure out what the error is, or even how to start looking for it. I have 6 minidumps, mostly different days, with 6 different errors. I am attaching the minidumps here. I've run them through online crash analyzers, and can't find a pattern.
I keep getting BSODs after building a new PC and installing Win 8. The error I am getting from my Intel event log says: 2000 Error communicating with WLAN device.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the WLAN drivers but am not having any luck. I have found newer driver versions but none of the driver installs take now. Seems like the driver that was installed is now corrupt, or parts of it are lingering. When I uninstall the device and driver from Windows (cause I don't need it), Windows finds it when auto scanning for hardware and then I get another BSOD.
The ethernet device that seems to be having the issue is a Killer e2200 built into my MSi Gaming 5 Motherboard.
I have replaced every piece of hardware on this build and I cant get rid of the memory management bsod. It happens randomly. During games, installations, boot up, basically whenever it feels like it. I tried a different HDD as well. SSD and standard gives the same result.

I have an Asus laptop model X501A. A few months ago I had to get the hard drive replaced which Asus did themselves and ever since then I have been getting BSOD and low memory errors while playing Dota 2. My computer always ran the game fine before this. I can still run the game for the most part but I get the memory error every time. I can usually just close the error and continue playing, but it has gotten to the point where I blue screen multiple times a day during game. I have also heard that Windows 8.1 might be the reasoning behind this as well. I do not know much about computers and I am not sure whether I used the SF Diagnostic tool correctly, but I am attaching the zip file.
I re-installed Windows 8 , everything worked fine until today I started having BSOD's saying I have "Memory Management" , "IRQL Not Less Or Equal" , "kernel security check failure" , "DPC Watchdog Violation", So... I attached the files from the Diagnostic Tool.
It started with AMD Catalyst Control Center starting to crash on boot, so I re-installed it and it works fine, but them Google Chrome starts to crash or just the extensions or open tabs
My computer was fine one day then, today when I was just browsing the internet it crashes. The computer restarts and then tells me there was a problem, then when I log in I get nothing but a black screen but my mouse can still move around. sometimes when starting up it takes me to the page and asks what to do. I tried refreshing the pc first and it did nothing. I then started it in safe mode and ran sfc /scannow on command prompt and it told me there were problems but it couldn't solve some of them it gave me something to look up but once again it crashed and restarted before I could read it.
I've had the computer for just over a year and it has always had windows 8.
My new PC is crashing constantly with the following errors:
MEMORY_MANAGEMENT (About 10 times per day) SPECIAL_POOL_DETECTED_MEMORY_CORRUPTION (This actually happened 3-4 times today (once while I was typing this message) PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (Maybe 4-5 times per day...usually when I'm trying to update STEAM?) KERNAL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE (Only saw this once and it was when I was installing WoW)
There seems to be no method to this things madness.
The computer would just freeze up and not go to blue screen, However, since upgrading to Windows 8.1 it has been giving me a blue screen and error message, what could be wrong. I am positive the errors over the years have all been by the same, as what causes them and what occurs after is always the same.
After booting up, if I decide to play a game, practically any that require 3-d graphics, the game will start to slow down and the audio will start to crackle. Then, the computer will freeze up. When I ran Windows Vista it just stayed frozen, but now during Windows 8.1 it goes to blue screen and shuts off. After rebooting, everything runs perfectible normally and I can run any game perfectly without slowdown or freezing. Then, after shutting down and rebooting another day the same problem will arise.
It's not necessarily the worst error, but I don't quite like leaving my computer in sleep mode as it still drains some power. From what I gathered for Blue Screen View, it seems to be a memory issue. The first error code I received when using Windows 8.1 was PFN list corrupt. That prompted me to test and reseat the ram. Windows Memory Diagnostic came out clean, but the error persists. The latest time I have had this problem, the error was Memory Management, 0x0000001a.
I have updated the BIOS to latest version and have overclocked my RAM, however, the problem existed before O.C.
I recently had a crash on my system while updating my ATI Radeon HD 5450 graphics card.
This occurred yesterday while updating to Catalyst v13.1, released on Jan 17 2013. Once I start the install, at around mid installation the BSOD appears and restarts my computer. I have since then done a clean install of Windows 8 Pro and it keeps appearing every time I try to update my graphics card. I've had this card for about a year now and with no problems until now.
The crash dump file appears in c:/windows/minidump

I am trying to debug some crash dumps which all point to NTOSKRNL.EXE but I am unable to debug or even analyze it because the WinDBG throws me an error :-
Code: ************* Symbol Path validation summary **************Response Time (ms) LocationOK C:symbols Symbol search path is: C:symbols Executable search path is: C:symbols Unable to load image SystemRootsystem32 toskrnl.exe, Win32 error 0n2*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for ntoskrnl.exe*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for ntoskrnl.exe
Now, I am unable to understand what is the reason behind this even after much browsing. Also, the symbols are downloaded and saved in C:/Symbols. I am sure that these are working because some DUMP files which do not point to NTOSKRNL get debugged fine.
Also, one more issue I am facing that whenever I have to open another crash dump file immediately after closing one, the option for opening the Crash Dump gets greyed out -_-' . The only way to open another DUMP file is via closing and opening workspace and everything again?
I have a Lenovo u410 Ultrabook with an odd problem that began 3-4 months ago that I've been unable to resolve.
Whenever the laptop resumes from sleep mode it forces a complete restart and fails to create a dump file. I have verified that windows is set to create dump files and if I force a crash in some other way I will get a dump file but when it crashes when trying to resume my minidumps folder remains empty.
As far as I can tell it enters sleep mode fine and it's not until it tries to resume that the reboot is triggered. When the problem began I was on Windows 8 and since then have upgraded to 8.1 ... The laptop was able to sleep normally for the first 2-3 months I had it.
Things I have tried so far:
-Installing all the official drivers from the Lenovo support website. - Running system file checker. -Running the Microsoft Safety Scanner. -Sleeping with no peripheral devices connected, tried both while running on AC and battery. -Removing and re-seating the memory. -Refreshing windows (I haven't tried a complete reset yet, hoping to avoid that if I can).
In event viewer I get the following error and critical event each time after it reboots:
Error: The previous system shutdown at <time> on <date> was unexpected.Critical: The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.There are no other warnings, errors, critical entries.
I am attaching the results of the "Grab All" in the SF Diagnostic Tool right after a reboot. Other than sleep mode not functioning the laptop appears to be running normally without any problems.
