Debugging :: Windows 8.1 BSOD Boot Error

Sep 15, 2014

I was working on my laptop on Tuesday and all of a sudden it blue screened with the following error:

system thread exception not handled athwbx.sys

I have tried to uninstall the graphics card as a lot of searches mentioned that this was a problem. I can boot the laptop to safe but cant do much else than that. I have also tried system restore but that fails as well.

Debugging :: Windows 8 - BSOD On First Fresh Boot Of The Day

Oct 26, 2013

Upgraded to 8 a couple months ago. For the last several weeks have been getting BSODs fairly consistently, usually within the first 5 mins of the first time booting for the day. Subsequent reboots usually won't have an issue.

The errors are always something different. Have seen Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area, system_service_exception, some kind of memory management error.

I've tried testing memory with both memtest86, and windows memory diagnostic, both came up clean.

Been looking at memory dumps, but they all point to different programs causing the issue: Steam showed up twice, Skype, I think there was a dwm.exe

Results of my latest memory dump:

Code: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (50)Invalid system memory was referenced. This cannot be protected by try-except,it must be protected by a Probe. Typically the address is just plain bad or itis pointing at freed memory.Arguments:Arg1: fffffb0000000408, memory

Debugging :: BSOD After Windows 8.1 Update - Can't Boot Partition

Apr 1, 2014

After updating my Windows 8.1, I experienced a BSOD and it has yet to go away. I cannot boot into my old Windows 8.1 partition and keep getting the error message: CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED

I analysed the crash dump created and it revealed that ntdll.sys was the problem. I don't want to lose those files and my hard disk is all cluttered now with the addition of a new partition.

Debugging :: Windows 8 64bit - BSOD On Boot / Different Reason Each Time

Jul 24, 2014

After my PC has been shutdown for a while (5 hours?), when I turn it back on again I get a BSOD.

If it is turned off for a couple of hours then I don't, everything is fine.

It normally boots up ok to the windows login wall paper, as soon as I click to select a user to login as it crashes.

A reboot normally cures it and I'm and running.

The messages I've been getting include:

Windows 8.1 64-bit

Driver IRQL not less or equal

(I've attached my SF Diagnostics Dump File)....

Debugging :: System Crash / BSoD - Dual Boot Running Windows 7 And 8

May 6, 2014

I am the same person who posted a thread about needing drivers for Windows 7 after dual booting it with my preinstalled copy of Windows 8. So, I was on Windows 7 today, and my screen randomly blinked on and off for 5 seconds, and then came up with a message saying my system display driver crashed but had recovered. Then, about a minute later, it crashed again and came up with a BSOD saying that the display driver had crashed but failed to recover. I do not have the error code from it, as I only saw this screen once, and forgot to copy down the codde because I got freaked out But anyways, I have copied the system report to this post from the Seven Forums System Tool. I am currently running in safe mode on my Windows 7.

Debugging :: Random BSOD On Every 2nd / 3rd Boot?

Jun 9, 2014

I get a random BSOD when I boot my HP Pavilion 15-e073sa notebook.

It's only on boot up, and only every 2 or 3 boots it gives me a REFERENCE_BY_POINTER and reboots, usually with no problem.

Debugging :: Many BSOD On Boot Up Followed By System Restore

Sep 12, 2013

I recently put together this computer from parts piece by piece. Unfortunately all these problems started on a particularly large upgrade including new motherboard, processor, heatsink, ram and gpu. So I'm not sure exactly what is causing this problem. Sometimes when I start up I get a BSOD, often a random cause, I've never seen any consistency. And that can cause up to 3-4 BSOD's in a row on boot up until eventually a system repair is attempted, which has to perform a system restore. After the system restore I get another one or two crashes before I am able to keep my computer on. Then a couple of days later, I might suffer the same bizarre chain again.

Debugging :: BSOD Driver Irql Not Less Or Equal Boot Loop

Apr 13, 2014

I've recently come into a problem booting up my laptop. Just downloaded the new nvidia drivers and rebooted my laptop. Now im getting the bsod and I can just make out that it says driver irql not less or equal before it reboots and goes through the whole process again. I've tried using an installation disc to try the automatic repair or whatever its called but after about 10 tries it keeps telling me windows couldn't fix the problem. Is there any chance of recovering what I had? I've tried a system restore but it keeps telling me I need to select my operating system (?).

Debugging :: Multiple Errors And BSOD During Boot And Switching WiFi

Debugging :: Bad System Config Info - BSOD After Changing Boot Settings

Feb 16, 2014

Today when I played my favorite game ( entropia universe), I got a message from my game saying that I have low ram, I checked on the Ctrl alt del thing and I was shocked that only 3.8 gb ram was usable when i have 8 gb ram and using 64 bit system. So here comes to my first question... Why would this happen?

So I happened to follow a tutorial and turned on the maximum ram checkbox in the advanced settings in boot tab in msconfig. However when I first reboot I got the session 3 initialisation failed BSOD. The second time and third time and so on and so forth I got bad system config info, which turned my computer into a reboot loop. Second question, why would this happen?

My experience similar to this unlucky fellow : Win 8 BSOD : BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO (Details available)SOS

so I followed the guide in the thread and tried to recreate my BCD. I successfully got into the advanced setup options ( I think it is called this ?) by pressing shift +f8.

However I still failed as I was locked there. Every option including opening the command prompt is blocked because it said that operating these options needed administrative rights which I have in my hands. However the ASO said that it can't find any administrative accounts in my computer. Third question , why would this happen?

So now my computer fell into another loop. Whenever I started my computer it went into the ASO and wouldn't get away from it. And can't even see the lovely face in BSOD.

I am am using windows 8.1 in amd fx 8150 and 8 gb ram, computer was somehow normal with occasional freezing ( 1-2 times a month ).

Debugging :: Windows 8.1 First Cold Boot Always BSOD At Windows Loading

Jan 9, 2014

I have tried with a new harddisk, took out my graphics card, checked my memory, they all seemed fine. My computer always run into a quick BSOD during the first boot and I am unable to see the error message and it restarts back to BIOS followed by a successful boot into windows on the second try. Occasionally, on the second try, it would go into windows repair and say that windows did not start up correctly etc. Normally, once it gets into windows, it would be ok. I did have once that I got a BSOD in windows.

Another interesting point to note is I can circumvent the cold boot crash issue by going to BIOS immediately on boot and exit it. This way, it would normally boot into windows without issues.

I suspect this is due to the on board network card but I cannot be sure. This computer is only 1 week old and I have spent a lot of time troubleshooting it. I have tried uninstalling, cleaning and re-installing the latest network drive.

Note that the cold boot crash issue does not always generate a mini dump file.

BSoD Boot Error 0xc0000034 / Missing Boot Files

Sep 15, 2014

Earlier, about an hour ago, I left to go job searching, and left my computer in hibernate mode so I could bring it back up as soon as I got back. When I tapped keys on the keyboard, the computer powered up as usual, but it brought up the BSoD, stating it was missing files.

Prior to receiving this error, everything was working fine. I even set it to hibernate mode during the night, and it powered on this morning without any problems. I dunno if it's the multimedia keyboard I'm using or what that caused it.

I don't have an installation disc (since I bought it from Fry's Electronics about a year ago with 8 pre-installed), and neither do I have a recovery disc (since I didn't know how to make one.

Computer info: Windows 8 x64
Manufacturer: ASUS

how to fix the missing boot files, and how to do it without causing any data loss from either of my hard drives.

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 :: 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 8.1 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.
