Debugging :: BSOD - Windows 8.1 Keeps Crashing?

Sep 15, 2014

We have a computer we're running Windows 8.1 Pro, which keeps crashing - typically overnight, and typically when we're running large computational simulations.

I have been working on parsing the WinDBG outputs, and finally got to:

Probably caused by : GenuineIntel

But before that, I see:

BugCheck 124, {0, ffffe0011caf8028, be000000, 100110a}
***** Kernel symbols are WRONG. Please fix symbols to do analysis.

But I am not 100% sure what I'm looking at. In WinDBG I am pretty sure I've succesfully pointed the symbol path to download symbols correctly from msdn.

So we ran "dm log collector", the ZIP is attached.

p.s. We do have a large RAID drive attached via USB3; connecting that seemed to correlate to the start of these crashes, but that might be wishful correlation seeking.

Debugging :: Windows 8 PC Keeps Crashing - BSOD For No Apparent Reason

Sep 15, 2014

I have an issue with my Windows 8 PC, as it keeps crashing (Page Fault in non-paged area). Not everyday and not while doing anything special. I can play games without any issue - and then be editing a document and it shuts down.

I replaced my HD for a SD back in May but since then i havent made any changes to the setup.

I have attached the SFdebug files.

Debugging :: Windows 8 Asus PC Keeps Crashing With BSOD Due To Unknown Reasons

Jul 10, 2014

I have a Asus pc, that has been crashing all the time due to unknown reasons. I have experienced that as soon as it hangs due to some process that is taking some time, it usually ends with a BSOD. I can let the computer alone and when I come back it has crashed, apparently for no reason, since I have not been using it for anything.

It crashes and gives the BSOD for many different reasons, I don't have the complete overview of all the reason, but above two listed reasons are the most significant. I have been using WhoCrashed, but does seem to get anywhere with the information provided by this. The PC is a new laptop.

I have followed the instruction and I'm uploading the zip file created by SF Diagnostic Tool.

Debugging :: Browsers Crashing Occasional BSOD?

Apr 27, 2014

my brother brought over a burned dvd on easter, played fine, nothing weird happened. the next day BSODs like woah, firefox and chrome crashing at random intervals. i tried system restore, it seems to have decreased the frequency of blue screens but they still happen and the browsers crash just as often. i'm pretty sure i'm running windows 7 (i know nothing about computers) i'm not a hundred percent sure the DVD was the culprit, but its a big coincidence if its not. hopefully i did the diagnostic thing right, i'll try and upload. earlier something strange happened where i had no sound, could not open the volume menu, tried to click shut down, nothing happened. had to give the old power button smothering to restart and now it seems okay.

My laptop keeps crashing with the error Random BSOD, Driver_IRQL_Not_less_or_equal tcpip.sys, and looking through it with blue screen view, I've noticed that each one has something different for the primary reason.

I have attached all of the crashes through the beginning of the month.

Debugging :: Multiple BSOD Errors - Unexplained Application Crashing

Apr 5, 2014

About an hour ago I was playing Dota 2 (a game application via Steam) when it crashed. There was no error report or explanation, it just crashed to the desktop. Upon restarting it, after a few moments it again crashed.

I attempted to restart my computer and got stuck at an American Megatrend BIOS screen talking about a CPU failure. Going into BIOS I shut off the CPU Fan monitors and was able to successfully restart the computer.

After a few moments I got a BSOD error, Watchdog_Clock. I restarted and again after a few moments got an IRQL BSOD error.

I downloaded an application called SlimCleaner and this seemed to resolve the BSOD errors, but the Dota 2 crashing without explanation is still occurring despite verifying the cache, and then deleting re-downloading and re-installing all together.

Attached are the dump files.

Debugging :: BSOD At Random Times - Computer Constantly Crashing

Jan 23, 2014

Ever since I have bought this computer, it has constantly crashed. When I attempt to fix something, for example: re-seat the memory, made sure there was plenty of cable slack, etc. The system will then seem stable for 7-10 days. Then out of the blue, the system will crash several times in a short time (sometimes this period can be a few hours or a few days). Even though it has constantly crashed (in the hundreds of times) I would say I have actually witnessed it less than 10 times. There was one time though the system had crashed, rebooted, and then even crashed again before I even had a chance to log in.

The file included is from the last 2 months and it has 30 files. This appears to be a rather large number, this is nothing compared to what it used to be like when I first purchased this system a year ago.

HP Envy 700
32 GB
i5-4430 3.0 (4 core)
Windows 8.1
DirectX 11
Graphics - Intel HD Graphics 4600

Antivirus - Symantec End Point
Malware Protection - Spy bot Search and Destroy

Heavy used applications:
PhotoShop CS5

Debugging :: Windows 8 Crashing Every 5 Minutes?

Aug 23, 2014

Every five minutes I recieve the BSOD and it says critical_process_died. The weird thing is, I reset my computer back to factory settings and as soon as I booted it did it again... I got my computer to work for like 10 minutes and as soon as I thought it stopped for good, it did it again.

My PC sometimes crashes during bootup too.

Edit: I was just downloading something and halfway in it said something like "Failed to download and install files". Then the taskbar in the bottom of my screen disapeared and my computer got the BSOD saying "Critical_Process_Died"...

My new laptop is crashing multiple times every day. It freezes, reboots itself or I get BSoD. I use it mostly for playing League of Legends and watching videos on Youtube , but it crashes on everything.

I tried to reinstall Windows 8.1 (OS I had when I bought laptop), reinstall all drivers, install new drivers but its still crashing. Also tried to run it in safe mode but it crashed there too.

I got these BSoD:

Debugging :: Windows 8.1 Crashing When Waking From Sleep

Mar 10, 2014

I had a problem a few months ago on Windows 8.1 I was unable to solve so I reinstalled windows 8 and was able to put my computer to sleep and wake again. Upon re-updating to Windows 8.1 I once again have the problem of a crash when trying to come out of sleep.

I tried Windows 8.1 again because of hardware changes that allowed me to uninstall a few outdated drivers, but that did not fix the problem. What may be causing it to crash when trying to wake?

Please find attached the zip file generated by the SF Diagnostics

Debugging :: Windows 8.1 Crashing While Playing Online Games

Sep 15, 2014

My computer has been crashing mostly while playing Guild Wars 2 and Archeage. It will crash, go to a weird colored screen, and I have to manually shut it off. I did a memtest and everything checked out, and I also tried switching the power supply out with one that wasn't having any problems and that didn't work either. I've also tried playing the games on the lowest settings and it still doesn't really work.

Debugging :: Windows Computer Crashing And Reboot Each Hour

Aug 15, 2014

About 6 days ago my computer started to crash (as in no shutdown sequence, just straight off) and reboot on the hour, every hour. So 11am, 12pm, 1pm on the dot.

I tried memtest to see if it was a memory issue and it ran for 3 hours with no errors. Safe mode is not effected so it seems to be specific to windows proper.

Here are the main details about the error:
SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION 0x0000003b Caused by driver ntoskrnl.exe

There was a weird error message in task scheduler as well, which I have posted in the screenshots below.

I have also attached the logs and a dump from blue screen view.

Debugging :: New PC Build Crashing / Hangs In W8.1 And W7

Nov 12, 2013

have been having crashes with my newly built PC at various stages in setting the computer up. if my technical language is lacking.

My System
CPU: AMD FX 6300
GPU: Gigabyte ATI HD7870 OC Ed
Mobo: ASRock 970-PRO3.R2
RAM: G SKill 8G(2x4G) DDR3 1600Mhz PC12800(GS-F3-1600C9D-8GAO)
SSD: Samsung 120GB SSD 840 EVO
HDD: Seagate 1TB Barracuda
PSU: Antec NEO 520C ECO 80Plus Bronze

Windows 8.1
First noticed issues when on the initial installation of windows 8.1 there was a hang while it was showing the blue windows logo. Multiple attempts led to me reaching various stages of setting up the computer, i.e. installing all latest drivers, BIOS and firmware for the hardware and installing a number (but never all) of the available windows updates. Through out the process I experienced frequent BSOD (generally within second or minutes of logging into the user) that did not appear to be initiated by anything in particular. Hangs were frequent when attempting windows updates (happened during 'checking for updates', 'downloading updates' and 'installing updates' on shutdown). Examples of the types of BSOD experienced.


Attempts at fixing the issue included fresh windows 8.1 installs (where crashes/hangs during installation off disc were experienced), resitting RAM, installing windows on HDD by itself (as opposed to SSD by itself), running startup repair tools (various times did not detect a problem or could not fix). Problems continued in various frequencies at various stages no matter the attempted fixes.

Windows 7 Suspecting compatibility issues between the hardware drivers and windows 8.1, a fresh install of Windows 7 was attempted. This has been more stable on installing drivers but on attempting windows updates the same update problems were experienced in the forms of hangs rather than BSOD, the only BSOD error that has come up on occasion is 'a clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval'. This BSOD has interrupted the installation (on shutdown) of windows updates on the rare occasion they manage to download in their entirety. More frequent crashes was also experienced after updating to the latest GPU driver. Installing the latest mobo AMD All in 1 driver from ASRock (contains AMD Catalyst Install Manager, AMD SATA AHCI Driver, AMD USB Fillter Driver) causes windows to freeze on restart at the Starting Windows page with windows logo but seems to function OK after restart.

Troubleshooting for windows updates including running check disk and windows update diagnostic tool which did not appear to show or fix issues.

Startup repair was also attempted and provided the following Root cause found: Unknown Bugcheck: Bugcheck 101. Parameters = 0x21, 0x0, 0xfffff88002f65180, 0x2. Not sure if that means anything.

At the moment the PC has windows 7 installed onto the SSD, latest lan/usb/audio drivers and microsoft security essential (antivirus) installed with only 2 windows updates installed: Security Update for Microsoft Windows (KB2621440) Update for Microsoft Windows (KB976902)

This appears to be stable, but attempts at windows update and installing the mobo driver causes the problems mentioned above. I have been using the current setup as a restore point.

The below minidump is within the context of the 'stable' config + latest mobo AMD All in 1 driver and the BSOD occurred while installing windows updates before shutdown.

Debugging :: Laptop Crashing With Grainy Display?

May 24, 2014

My dell inspiron n5010 running on Windows 8, today all of a sudden started showing some grains on the display.Soon after it happened, it showed me a message which says

"Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restarts. were just collecting some error info, and then well restart for you (100% complete)".

The system restarted by itself and it started running system repair. The system repair screen is also grainy. After the repairing is done, it restarted showing Windows 8 logo(that too with grainy display).But nothing really happens after that and it its stuck. So I decided to switch it off and turn it back ON after sometimes. I did that and the PC booted with no issues with the display perfectly fine. But the same issue is repeating again and again and I will have to shut down the system for some time and then again turn it back ON to make it run normal.

Debugging :: BSOD When Updating Windows 8

Oct 22, 2013

I've been trying to update to Windows 8.1 but I keep having issues. I constantly have failing Windows Updates. I have tried a couple different things, renaming the SoftwareDistribution file to .old, Windows Repair, and full clean install of Windows 8. I for the life of me can't figure out what's going on.

Currently, I am unable to install the SF_Diagnostic tool for some reason. It's hung up on downloading the necessary files from Windows Features. I have a mini dump from Windows 8 attached and will try to update it with the SF_Diag tool if it ever installs.

Edit: had to manually enable .NET Framework in order to get the diagnostic tool to install. The mini dump is still the same regardless so I'll keep that there.

Debugging :: Random BSOD In Windows 8?

Oct 11, 2013

Recently I've experienced random BSOD's in Windows 8. Although my computer know-how is limited at best, I knew it was best to upgraded my pc in steps. The first week I installed a SSD (with a fresh install of Windows 8 on it) and ran without any problems. A week later I installed 16 gigs of (new) ram (with the SSD) and everything ran fine.

The problems started two weeks later. I haven't made any changes to my pc or driver upgrades since then. If I idle in windows everything works fine. The same is true when running Office or browsing the internet. BSOD's occur when:

- Playing games (modern or old), either after 5 minutes or after 3 hours (seems very random but frequent);

- When wathing a HD youtube movie (BSOD's when doing this seem very rare though);

Debugging :: BSOD On Windows 8.1 Update 1 Even When Not In Use

Apr 26, 2014

I have had a long history of BSOD issues on this system, and have exhausted my patience in trying to fix it. I have done my own research to no avail, and have even utilized my warranty to get parts replaced. At this point in time I have a replaced motherboard and video card but the BSOD issues have actually increased in frequency.

For testing I have re-loaded Windows. Ran tests on the memory. Replaced the hard drive with an SSD. Updated drivers as best as I could based on the version of Windows and availability of drivers, and as mentioned I have even had the Motherboard and Video card replaced. The only hardware left to rule out is Power Supply and CPU.

Debugging :: Windows 8.1 Crashes Without BSOD?

Jul 27, 2014

My Sony Vaio Multi-Flip has been causing a lot of pain recently. A couple of months ago, it was making a lot of noise (which apparently came from the fan) but the problem resolved itself and has rarely occurred in the last 2 months. The engineer said at the time, that it was most likely a fan noise (as opposed to the HDD).

However from the last few days, the laptop shuts down out of nowhere (without a blue screen). This happened 5-6 times consecutively the first time, after which I was somehow able to do a system restore to a couple of weeks earlier, to see if it might have been a software issue. That temporarily seemed to fix it, but a few days later the issue is back. It happens every now and then (say once or twice a day). The laptop just shuts down completely in a snap. What might be causing this? I have an important business trip coming up and the last thing I want is for this to happen when I am in a client meeting.

I notice my CPU temperatures are normally between the 55-70 degrees on average usage, so I wonder if replacing/cleaning the fan is the way to go?

Also, every now and then, I hear a "beeping noise" and I notice this is usually when I lift the laptop up or tilt it slightly, while it is still running. This is shown as a critical error in my event log, with error source "Kernel Power" and error description " The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

DM Log collector results attached as SF Doesnt seem to be working for me on Windows 8.1. The greens status bar doesnt go past the "u" of "lunch" text above it despite waiting for ages.
