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 the computer spec OS: Windows 8 PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 Graphics Card: ASUS GTX780-DC2OC-3GD5 CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Mother Board: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO RAM: G.SKILL Trident X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) SSD: Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB
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.
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've started recently having issues with my Asus laptop (model x550c). It all began with couple of BSOD, that were referring to hardware error, but as they occurred when I witched WIFI I figured it was driver related, re-installed driver, and they went away.
Fast forward a few days, now computer just randomly (what I can see) freezes, with image and everything left, and nothing happens till I reboot by taking battery out (I can't move mouse, or do anything at all). I've also had issues starting PC up from the Windows 8 hybrid shutdown, with nothing but black screen greeting me leading to same battery reboot.
Memtest seemingly came back okay (although I'll let it turn bit longer once I'm home), drivers seems up to date, no new software been installed recently, antivirus scan came back clean. Nothing seems abnormal with GPU/CPU load or temp. Chkdsk fixed some minor issues after first bsod, but freezes continued.
I am attaching the last minidump file, that seems to be pointing at hal.dll as cause, as well as the SF info. However, I can't save event viewer logs however, as it gives "The specified channel could not be found" error, so I had to manually export all critical and errors events in three separate files you can find in the events archive.
I have Toshiba laptop that I migrated to Windows 8 and had no issues, once I moved 8.1 randomly the computer freezes for some minutes where I can only move the mouse and nothing happnes, even the Ctrl Alt Del does not work, but after a while the computer comes back to life and everything that I imputed, clics and keystrokes, start to go on.
Is annoying since I cant see a movie now without getting freeze while watching it
I already clean install Windows 8.1 RTM with lastes patches and drivers but the same issue since I thought is was a WIN issue for the upgrade.
Here are the specs
Date 2013/10/23 20:25:16

I've been constantly having problems with random freezes on Asus N76Vz notebook @ Windows 8.1 x 64 with latest updates. I don't remember updating any drivers or installing any software that could be capable of doing that, so it has begun out of sudden.
Freezes are actually pretty weird. It starts with a partial freeze, i.e. I can still switch between opened programs, I can still open new tabs in Chrome (it won't open any new sites though, just rotating circle icon), winamp will keep playing music etc., actually all programs will freeze only partially, nothing like I've ever seen before. But I can't close any currently opened programs or open new ones, including task manager. Explorer (+Classic shell) will freeze (become completely non-responding) as well, so sooner or later, I will have to force shutdown computer and turn it on again.
Where to look at because there's not a single minidump report. S.M.A.R.T status is telling me that SSD (with latest firmware) and HDD (0 bad sectors) are completely fine (checked with Hard Disk Sentinel). Computer is not infected nor have ever been (Comodo Internet Security for active protection, also scanned with malwarebytes, hitmanpro, TDSSkiller and adw cleaner). I have the latest BIOS and the latest drivers from official ASUS support website.
There are no other problems with Windows, except a lot of times I can't reboot Windows normally - it will stay at reboot screen forever. I've already tried turning off hybrid shutdown.
And another problem unrelated to Windows freezing mentioned above. Sometimes I can't close an application (Winamp and iTunes mostly) and killing in task manager from Processes tab also won't do anything. But if I try to kill it from Details tab, I get "The operation could not be completed. Access is denied." error. I've Googled about that one as well, most solutions were solved by unplugging USB devices, but I don't have any connected at all, so dead end here too. I've also tried with Unlocker and FileAssasin and they can't do anything as well in that case.
Since there are no minidumps, I've collected system, application and administrative events around occurrence of random crash. I'm also posting system summary and hardware report from AIDA64.
I Just installed a fresh windows 8 on my computer and it worked fine until I installed the nvidia drivers. Without nvidia drivers it works fine, but after installing it it starts to freeze and crash. After I remove the nvidia driver is it works fine again. I tried the newest and the older nvidia drivers but none of them were stable. The symtopms are different each time. Sometimes BSOD sometimes some part of graphics on the screen goes pink sometimes the screen blacks out and does not return until I hard reset it.
In Windows 7 if my screen froze up i had no control over mouse or keyboard I pushed control alt and delete was able to go to log in screen,either restart,shutdown or use task manager close a program might be giving me this issue.It seems for me in Windows 8 this does not work anymore,causing me to unplug power on PC which can cause bad sectors to increase on HDD.D How to do this without having to shutdown improperly like i do?
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.
My PC config is : 1. Intel Pentium Pentium CPU G630 @ 2.70GHz Socket 1155 LGA (0x1) 2. 4GB DDR3 RAM 3. 2TB Seagate HDD
I am facing a strange issues of BSOD since last 10 days. 1st I was on Windows 7 SP1 since more than 3 months and earlier on Windows 8. Suddenly my Windows 7 got corrupted after automatic indexing process by windows, in which process showed some index files corrupted and deleted. After then windows cant start, stuck into bootloop.
I formatted Windows several times but after a few hours the same condition. Then I decided to backup my HDD and Zero Level format of HDD. I did that, which took almost 6 Hrs. After then I decided to go again on Widows 8. hence, formatted and installed Windows 8.1 Update 1.
Now, again after a few minutes or hours BSOD happen again and again with random Two errors :
1. irql_not_less_or_equal (storports.sys) or 2. kernel-data-inpage-error
I am attaching herewith my CPU details alongwith logs by "dm log collector".
So I got myself a new computer not long ago, and I had some issues with the windows install that gave me 5-6 bsod a day atleast. Managed to fix that issue eventually, but lately it started to pop up with the same thing again, everything from MEMORY_MANAGEMENT to KERNEL_ERROR.
Latest one was DL/DI.DLL
It can happen during playing games, watching videos on youtube, or even idle.
I have this problem with my laptop for a week ago, I purchased this laptop (hp pavilion dv6 2170ee) 4 years ago. Now I'm currently using Windows 8.1 PRO on it. I recently upgraded my RAM from 4 GB to 8 GB (a year ago). I'm using this laptop for work purpose, graphics like 3ds max, Photoshop and Autocad.
Well the problem started by getting a lot of unexpected shutdowns with BSOD with random errors ..
the memory management error & IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error are the most appearing , although the memory management is the #1 error happens. This leads me to test my RAMS , I ran a memory check (windows memory check & bios memory check) both gave me no errors. I even replaced my RAMS with the ones which originally came with the laptop, same errors happened again. I tried booting in safe mode, at that time no errors occured , I though it might be the drivers , I uninstalled the graphic driver and restarted the system everything was fine until I tried to install windows updates, OS asks me to reboot ,after that system started and I didn't touch even the mouse ,it crashed with errors again
This is a new system running Windows 8.1. I have been having seemingly random BSOD and crashes. I disconnected a 2T USB backup drive and BSODs have slowed, but not disappeared. BSODs happen most often when waking the system, which seems to take far longer than it should. Error message vary. The most recent was a System Service Exception IRQ_Not_Less_or_Equal.
I keep getting those damn BSOD's after playing for about 20 with 30 minutes. Every thing is up to date so I don't see what is wrong... The funny thing is that I get those BSOD's only when I play BF3, it doesn't even happen to BF4!
Just reinstalled windows 8 on my desktop and started to receive random bsod. I know windows 8.1 is out. I downgraded due to BSOD issues on that version also. Yes I also know my windows 8 is out dated. I understand I should update but that's the least of my concerns right now. I already had 1 ram card fail on me a couple months back. But I didn't recognize this blue screen error.
I was reading this guys post BSOD Critical Process Died even after complete reinstall and his issue is exactly like I am having. My computer would just completely freeze while playing games or watching videos online.
I Just tried to run Memtest86+ and something strange happened. So here's what I did. First I download the Memtest86+ USB Installer. Turned off my computer and put my other 2 rams cards back in (I was testing one at a time). Started up my computer (HP) and press ESC to go into the boot menu and the computer just froze on that screen. It wouldn't do anything. So I turned the computer off and tried another option F10 I think it was. The computer froze again. I repeated this process for all boot options on my PC and each time the computer froze on the startup screen.
I'm having BSOD for a few months now. It all started while I still had Windows 7 installed and by that time I did full RAM testing without ever accusing flaws. A month ago I did a clean format of my Disk and installed Windows 8.1 Pro with hopes that things would be better but they aren't.
I've had 6 BSOD since last month, with the first being after 1-2 days after installation (I had hardly anything installed), they all reported different messages and between them I reinstalled drivers with no success at ending them. In addition, all BSOD happened while doing different things or doing nothing (AFK).
If you want any further details besides the zip files attached feel free to ask. ( I inserted both OPTIONS zip files - JLReis.zip (OPTION 1), SFdebugFiles-JL-PC (OPTION 2)).
My crashes are not related to BSODs. I HAVE NOT GOTTEN ANY BSODs AND THUS DO NOT HAVE ANY DUMP FILES.
For about the past month and a half, I've been getting random crashes in Windows 7. My computer suddenly turns off and reboots itself. Just a black screen. Sometimes I don't get a crash for five days, sometimes I get one twice in the same day.
My copy of Windows 7 wasn't genuine. I did a completely clean install of a genuine copy of Windows 8.1 one week ago, just to rule out problems on the OS level. I just got a random restart an hour ago. I only brought over media files from Win7, so I'd say my problem must be hardware related, or something to do with my power socket.
Thoughts? Unfortunately, I can't change sockets easily, as I would have to move my computer into another room for possibly weeks just to see if the problem reoccurred (it's so rare).
The event viewer shows that these crashes coincide with Event ID 41: Kernel-Power. The event data is always blank as follows:
Things I've tried: 1. Ruled out overheating: my computer is very well cooled. Prime95 can't push any of my CPU's cores past 50C. My CPU runs @ about 35C during heavy gaming and my GPU doesn't seem to get past 40C. 2. Run Prime95 for about 14 hours with no errors. 3. Run Memtest86 to rule out faulty memory. I only did one pass, so I'm guessing I should do more? 4. Unchecked the "automatically restart" option in advanced system properties. It hasn't had any effect. 5. Uninstalled my GPU drivers and updated to the latest ones. 6. Tried to rule out a faulty PSU to no avail. Hardware monitor programs give me crazy voltage readings (8V on my +12V), but voltages seem normal in the BIOS. Should I buy a digital multimeter to test voltages under full load?
