Debugging :: Kernel Security Check Failure BSoD On Plugging USB Into PC
Mar 15, 2014
I keep getting the kernel_security_check_failure BSOD every time I plug a USB into my PC. I need to find the cause, I suspect it's some out of date driver, but It seems to happen to more than one type of input, so what is causing it?
I started to get this bsod randomly, even when computer is not at 100% load. When I shutdown computer it creates dmp file with error too. When computer bsod with kernel security bsod it creates log with bugcheck error 0x00000139..
Since today my friend is being hit with some BSOD's containing the text: "Kernel Security Check Failure"
We have no idea where this all came from, my friend did not download some sketchy, unstable, downloads or something. We did some research and it apparently is an issue with drivers, That gets no bell ringing because his computer was running smoothly about half a year now, with no major changes like an OS upgrade. We have found that it's useful to read some dump files.
We found the dump file locator software on this forum and ran it on his computer, and the result you can find as attachments.
My PC just BSOD while playing games but this was only after it crashed to black screen unresponsiveness. A couple hours after the first crash (maybe after 1.5 hrs of gaming once again) it BSOD with the "Kernel Security Check Failure" error.
I keep getting blue screens and the last one said Kernel security check failure. I'm not sure if the other failures were with the same error but I would assume they were. The laptop crashes while getting shut down, during several hours of use and today when I turned it on it failed straight away. I hope I've correctly posted the zip file.
After upgrading from 4gb OEM RAM to 8gb Corsair CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9 I get BSOD with kernel_security_check_failure message just as Windows attempts to load. This happens with memory sticks in either slot. Testing memory with Memtest continually hangs on test #2. Memory was tested with Memtest in another computer and no errors were found. Incompatible memory or something else?
BSOD comes out lately very often with kernel security check failure. İt's come out i guess when watching youtube video in fullscreen and paused video and away from keyboard and screen goes off (power managment). Then i come and saw BSOD with kernel security check.
Within the last 24 hours I received 2 Kernel Security Check Failures and 1 DPC Watchdog Violation. As best I can tell, the first Kernel error was while I was installing Dropbox. I received it again when I was trying to remove the SF Diagnostic Tool from my machine. I received the Watchdog Violation while restarting Reimage software. The following output from the SF Diagnostic Tool is from *after* these 3 errors and is also after Reimage finally finished fixing all it found and came up clean on a rerun.
I'm getting repeated BSODs with the Kernel Security Check Failure message on a Lenovo Yoga 13. It's currently running Windows 8, and it's pretty much in the state it was when it arrived. I attach the output from the SF Diagnostic Tool.
I recently purchased a new Asus N550JV Laptop, I down loaded and installed Europa Universalis IV through steam, the game appears to load ok, but once it gets to the menu screen, the screen glitches & freezes, it then crashes to blue screen.
I've had a non paged fault in paged area & kernel securit check failure.
I have a Lenovo Y 510P and a few weeks after updating to windows 8.1 my computer crashed and restarted, I got the message kernel_security check failure and ever since it does this on a regular basis and the laptop is only 4 months old.
So a few nights ago I was on my computer. The power randomly went out in my neighborhood without warning despite the fact a storm wasn't present. I restart the computer and continue. Later that night I receive a BSOD Kernel System Check Failure and have to restart again. Now 3 days later, it does the same thing once a day. Except today was different. After my third blue screen I opened up chrome to research the matter when a message popped up to inform me that my chrome settings had become corrupted. This makes me worry that this has its roots in the bowels of my system's memory.
These are the files that windows suggested I send to microsoft:
I've bought this computer before 1 month and started to having problems with BSODS when it had windows 7. It was IRQL not less or equal errors and so on. I thought it was hard drive problem with bad sectors.
What I did was completely format the hard drive (low level format), Installed Windows 8.1 with graphic drivers (other drivers were already included) and started getting kernel security check BSOD errors.
I have been getting a blue screen with a frown face with the following: "CYour PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you. If you'd like to know more, you can search online later for this error. KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE
What do I do about this?

I recently bought a Asus VS229H-P monitor and when I plug it into my laptop via HDMI a couple things happen. One of my cpu cores maxes out, with the load occasionally shifting between cores, and the machine takes a couple minutes to switch from the GTX 770m to the integrated graphics. If I wait about 5 minutes the machine will Blue Screen with a Driver Power State Error. If instead I unplug the HDMI cable it will Blue Screen with a ACPI BIOS Error. After the machine restarts I'm able to use the monitor just fine without crashes. Even before the crash the monitor works.
The particular dump file that I had the SF tool grab was created after I plugged in the HDMI cable when the machine was off and then turned the machine on. The WinDbg tool says pci.sys is the probable cause. When I cause the machine to have the ACPI error I believe it then says acpi.sys is the cause.
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.
