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.
Windows 8.1 x64
2x 8 gb Ballistix DDr-1600
ASrock Z87 Pro3
AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series
2x Samsung SSD 120gb 840 EVO
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.
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 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 solved this issue by not leaving my laptop plugged into my television through HDMI while it restarts to install updates. If you run into this issue, make sure you try leaving all ports open on your computer.
A few weeks ago my PC ran into a Blue screen of death error. I'm not sure why or exactly when it happened, but I think it may have led to the issues I have now. About 3 weeks ago (I think) I was playing a game and the forced restart to install updates thing popped up. It said I had 15 minutes before my system would restart and install updates. I was a bit cranky at the time, so I got mad and decided to look up on the internet how to disable forced restarts for windows 8. I came across a thread on a site much like this that explained how to open your system registry and delete the forced restart file or something similar.
I opened my registry and couldn't find it, so I ended up not deleting anything, but I did keep my registry open on accident and my computer restarted while it was open. It crashed during the update install and gave me a BSOD error. I restarted my computer and it began installing updates yet again. It got to 30% and then went black. A few seconds later, the Asus logo popped up with the loading circle below it. It said attempting to repair or something similar to that. It eventually failed to repair, so it asked if I would like to proceed with a system restore. Seeing no other options, I clicked yes. The screen went black again and the Asus logo showed up with the loading circle below it. It failed to system restore and took me to a blue screen that isn't the BSOD. It said there were other options like refreshing my system, and it assured me that I would not lose my files (but it said nothing about apps).
I decided to do that over the manufacturer restore. It worked, but I lost all of my apps that I had installed. After redownloading and installing all the apps, I thought it would be over. About a week later another windows update popped up. I thought it would work fine this time, so I let it go. The same thing happened, and I ended up having to system refresh again. This happens every time my computer restarts, and it is very aggravating. I'm not sure what to do about it, although I haven't tried to manufacturer restore yet.
TL/DR; My computer has to system refresh every time it restarts, causing me to lose all of my apps and have to reinstall them each time. I think it has something to do with my computer restarting to install updates while my system registry was open.
I wasn't sure what to provide for specs, so I'll just add in the usual Ram and stuff:
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4500U CPU @ 1.80GHz 2.40 GHz Installed memory (RAM): 8.00GB (7.89 GB usable) System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor Pen and Touch: Full Windows Touch Support with 10 Touch Points
I added the SF_19-11-2013.rar file to the post because I just saw the requirements >.>
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 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.
About 2 months back i had a new pc build. Since then, either 2 things would happen. My computer screen will complete freeze, with a buzzing sound and i would have to manually restart or i would get a BDOS with a buzzing sound and the computer auto restarts. These crashes are completely random, sometimes it would happen couple times a day, sometimes i can go a week without one. i also notice about almost all of these happens when im gaming. and everytime i look at the event log, its always the same Kernel-Power 41.

This is what i got using WinDbg
WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124) A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon.
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.

I've recently built a new computer with Windows 8.1 and have been having some BSOD issues. Initially, I was getting a "Kernel_Security_Check_Failure" BSOD about once every day or two. After running MemTest+ (and confirming my RAM was fine), I started reading around online and began thinking it was a driver issue.
At the time, I did have a Belkin Wireless USB adapter which did not have an official driver for Windows 8.1. I had gotten it to work by installing it in Win 7 compatibility mode. So to try and solve the problem, I uninstalled that driver and software, and went to hard-line ethernet. The BSOD's went away for about two days until:
Yesterday I had another crash. Except this time I didn't get a BSOD, but instead just a hard crash to black. When I rebooted I ran the Driver Verifier (after reading about it online), and then did a restart. When it booted back up, it started saying I had a "driver_verifier_detected_violation" BSOD appear, which was pointing to "nvlddmkm.sys". This looks like be some sort of Nvidia driver. I had to boot in safe mode to get back in and turn off driver verifier.
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've had this computer for almost a year now and it's been bluescreening on and off since day 1. The most common errors seem to be (in no particular order) Memory Management, IRQL Not Less Or Equal, and Kernel Security Check Failure. Occasionally, the blue screen will be replaced by a solid red screen with no text, but the computer still restarts as normal. I've attached the report from the SF Debug Tool.
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)
It's been a few weeks now, of very random freezes. It's been in and out of computer stores, saying they've solved the issue, and I bring it home and it starts freezing again. Running Win 8.1 pro/ I don't get any blue screens, and I get no crash dumps. And I always have to hard shutdown. driver verifier isn't picking anything up either. Temps are normal. I've reinstalled windows 3 times now. And always with the same results.
Everything purchased at the beginning of August 2014. (brand new build).
My system(HP pav-g6) is dual booted with win7 and win 8.1 I have installed all recommended drivers from HP and done all windows updates. I crash trying to wake from sleep. In win 7 this problem does not occur. Check disk, seatools, & memtest have already been completed with all passes.
I have faced BSOD it says KERNEL_APC_during bla bla while booting into windows. i don't know what's the cause of this because it hapenned randomly (I mean sometimes I can go boot to desktop, and sometimes I faced the BSOD). I assume that maybe my realtekk driver is the problem .
I just got a new laptop (Acer Aspire One 756) and keep having an issue with the internet connection not being able to connect after the computer sleeps or hibernates for a few hours. It usually says identifying network... no internet access. I copied and pasted the trouble shooting that I did below. It still works if I restart or the computer sleeps or hibernates for less than an hour or so. The other computer and devices that use this connection work fine when mine isn't working. I can fix this problem by restarting the router and it works fine again.
It's just annoying to have to restart the router a few times a day. It also only does this with my network at home. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the network adapter with the most updated driver, power cycling the router and all the devices, changing the network adapter settings to do not turn this device off to save power, and resetting the Winsock like I've seen on other forum posts. None of these has worked so far. The router is a dlink WBR-1310 and it's pretty old. My wireless network adapter is a Qualcomm Atheros AR5B125.

Computer has been recently crashing every so often. I update most of my driver, which at first seemed to fix the issue, but the BSOD started again. It also seems to crash when I am using IE11 desktop over Chrome but have not confirmed this yet.
I am having regular problems with BSOD crashes when insert a USB storage device. The problem first arose following reinstalling windows and associated drivers. I have tried updating drivers and deleting and reinstalling the USB drivers but to no avail.
I attach a file containing recent data that is gathered from a crash.
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.
