Debugging :: Random BSOD While Using Chrome And Also Just While Gaming?
Jul 24, 2014
i kept on getting the same BSOD for like 6 moths. but is was lazy and didn't take action, but im no fed up with it. and its getting reeaally annoying. I get get it most often while watching youtube video's (but i think that's just due to that that is what i mostly do on chrome. i also get it while gaming or just normal use (a lot less though). i used SF Diagnostic Tool i have Windows 8 64bit (i dont know if its pro or ultimate or something, i dont know where to find that)
I'm facing BSODs on my system. It mostly appears when I'm using Chrome, especially using Youtube or any flash applications (like games on Facebook). In games it also crashes from time to time (e.g. Assasins Creed 4).
Programs for controlling the fan of my R9-280x lead to crashes a lot, I deleted those already (e.g. Sapphire Trixx).
My system: Windows 8 - 64 bit 8 GB RAM Sapphire Vapor-X R9-280x graphics Intel i5 4670K Samsung SSD 840 pro Evo (I already checked this one and optimized it, but this didn't do the trick).
I've just bought a new Acer Aspire V3 772G. My laptop crashes or reboot by itself every times i play a video game. Sometimes 5 minutes or 2 hours later.
-I update all the drivers from the Acer Website. -I've updated the Bios to 1.15 (the latest). -I've already run a memory test with Memtest86 during 10 hours : no single error. -I've run a CPU test with intel with intel Processor diagnostic. There's a warning which says CPU Frequency Test Passed with Warning!!!
The processor frequency could be affected by power management features. In order to ensure the processor frequency is not affected by a power management setting, enter BIOS, load defaults, and disable any 'Over-Clocking' or power management features that may affect processor frequency. Also, set any software applications which control power management features to default.
I didn't overclocked my CPU. I don't know whether it's overclocked or not. It's a second hand laptop.
-I've tried to test my graphic card with AtiTool but when i run it it says ''The Kernel Mode driver does not seem to be running A device driver is required for communication with your video hardware. -I've also run a hard disk test with HDtune and it seems that i have 381Mb as bad sector.
My specs : IntelCore i7-4702MQ 2.2ghz with turbo boost up to 3.2ghz Nvidia Ge force gt750m 16gb ram DDR3 L 1to hdd West digital Windows 8 upgraded to windows 8.1 64 bits
It is just a matter of time before the system crashes. Sometimes I can play a whole evening without a crash, sometimes it crashes every 5 minutes. It does not seem to coincide with what happens in the game and it can be an old game with minimum graphics or something else on max, the crash is the same. As it crashes, screen goes black, it generates a hum on the speakers, and all I can do is to push the power button until it shuts off the power. Another problem is that there is NO dump file whatsoever. Minidump settings are all validated, but no dump gets created. I hope the SF debug Tool is enough.
I tried to fill in as much of my computer information as I could in my profile's system specs.
I've had 3 BSOD's in one day.
The first was while watching a video on youtube using Chrome. I had a few tabs open at the same time. Wasn't expecting a problem. The BSOD happened suddenly without warning.
The second was while playing Planetside 2. The fans spun up to 100% (I couldn't hear them with headphones, I just felt it) and then it crashed.
The third was also with Planetside 2. Fans spun up, I didn't realize it, BSOD.
After that I was hyper aware of the fans. They would start spinning up and I would switch to desktop and they would instantly spin down. I'd wait 10 seconds and go back into the game and it was fine for a while. Then it would do it again.
Brand new laptop so probably driver issues and maybe hardware.
My Msi Ge70 2oe is 5 moths old and i got several BSODs since purchase. I updated most drivers in April, still got 6xBSOD this month. Most of them System_Service_Exception and addressing ntoskrnl.exe+59769. idk what that means, think have some really bad drivers it happens mostly using chrome.
Using manufacturers Live update 5 to update, although not installed some optional like norton internet security. Checked memtest and windows memory test programs, nothing unusual.
This is basically a fresh install. I only really installed steam along with the drivers for my motherboard and gpu. It originally did it while on steam only but has since done it other places. Last night was particularly bad, as it would BSOD and then sit on a black screen while trying to load up. Turning it off and on eventually started it back up. Then it did a weird thing where it would keep rebooting itself. Eventually I shut it down for the night.
I purchased a new computer in the last few days, pre-installed Windows 8. I was having the odd error message where Chrome would stop working and reload. Or sometimes an error message saying my computer would restart. They are different messages:
Memory Management IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Special Pool Detected Memory Corrupt
I downloaded all updates for Windows 8, then updated to 8.1 and downloaded all but one update available (Bing Desktop). I am still getting these BSOD. Sometimes in Chrome, sometimes in Steam, and sometimes randomly
I've run the Memory diagnostic tool in Windows, and it found no errors. I've attached the SF Diagnostics folder which was created.
I have been experiencing a number of crashes recently when gaming which have been become increasingly frequent. Initially I assumed it may be due to overheating, but all temperatures were normal when checked with coretemp and nvidiainspector. Attached is the SF file.
I've been having this issue with my PC for the last 6 months or so. I attributed it to an aging graphics card but had a rude awaking when I purchased and installed a new GPU yesterday and the problem still persisted.
The issue didn't bother me too much as I don't game too often but I just bought a new R9 280x card and was hoping to catch up on some games I've missed.
The issue that I get is when gaming (and using Video Editing software - PC BSOD's when rendering a video from After Effects CC for example) is that after about 20 - 25 min of running the game the PC will just crash and I'll get a IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error and the PC will restart. This happens every time regardless of the game played or settings.
My PC temps are pretty normal even under stress.. max the CPU goes to is around 68 and the GPU around the same.
- Reinstall Windows - Use only the SSD - Use only the HDD (Bought new HDD) - Switch out the RAM Sticks w/ New Ones - Run MemTest and other software (everything came back clean) - Yesterday I installed the new GPU, Reinstalled Windows, Updated all Drives and Windows Updates and the issue is still present.
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);
I've used the pc for a few days with a usb pen with Ubuntu Live while i was backing up the files from the disk and it was ok. No crashes and no problems. Then i installed Windows 8 and i'm getting +- 2 BSOD's a day. I've already tried to find out the source, but the logs i find in the minudups are not clear to me. I'm only uploading 2 dmp files because i've done a system restore and all previous dmp were erased. I'll upload more when it happens again.
I bought this PC on january, and since then I got random BSOD at various moments, I already tryed to restore the computer, I already did this New MSI GT70 random BSOD's and i still got a lot of BSOD, my drivers are updated.
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 have a MSI GT70 20D-039US DRAGON EDITION 2 and get random crashs since the first day I have it.
I upgraded my laptop to Windows 8.1 after the first crash and it didn't work and then i have updated all my drivers to latest from MSI Global GT70 Dragon Edition 2 and also killer network website(include firmware but BIOS I think).
I did some research about the issue some how find out killer network might be the center of the problem but when I shut it down (using msconfig to disable the killer service V2 and killer network manager ) as other did the problem are getting a lot worse compare to before(BSOD's every half an hour compare to maybe once a day) .
Recently on my gaming PC is have been having a completely random 0x0000001e, I really can't understand where it has came from, or what the root cause could be. It is a fairly new install at no more than a month old. I have not added any new internal hardware or anything like that, so what could be the cause for this random error? I have attached my logs to the main thread.
Ever since I purchased this PC with Windows 8 installed (haven't updated to 8.1) I've been getting multiple BSODs at random times, and the error messages seem to be different. I am attaching the file generated by SF diagnostic tool. I am not used to troubleshooting PCs.
