Problem: My computer crashes randomly, sometimes while I'm working, sometimes while I'm away from the computer, there doesn't seem to be a pattern. Oddly enough, windows 8.0 ran just fine and never crashed. Windows 8.1 seems to crash much more frequently, and either blue screen or just lock up and reboot with no blue screen.
Suspected potential problem: When upgrading to windows 8.1, in order to get my very old cisco VPN client working, I had to install a citrix DNE (deterministic network) driver. I'm guessing it could be related to this and the old cisco client, though I have unchecked DNE on the network adapter and I have still had crashes, even with it unchecked/disabled in theory.
Since last week I'm getting a lot of blue screens which appear for no apparent reason, sometimes I leave the computer locked for dinner and when I come back, the computer has restarted with a blue screen.
I'm using Windows 8.1 with update 1, and the blue screen's message is IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL .
I suspect that this is happening because of a wi-fi receiver that I've installed on my computer a month ago.
So I have been getting Blue screens on and off for a fair time now ( few months ) from once per week to multiple times per day. I have been trying to fix the problem for a fair while but I feel I am getting nowhere in which the frequency of the blue screens doesn't seem to change no matter.
Steps I have taken so far:
- cmd>sfc /scannow: This might have been a culprit to some blue screens. At first when run I would get "corrupt files found but not fixed". After spending some time trying to refresh windows 8.1 and failing (as I only had Windows 8 key), eventually I did a clean install of windows 8 (and still having the same message). I have since acquired a windows 8.1 key and used that to refresh windows, and now the message is from sfc when run is "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations".
- Windows memory test : So I ran this and had no errors.
- cmd>verifier: I have recently tried that with no crashes ( I think I set it up correctly and when I rebooted it booted normally to windows following steps here : [URL] ....).
- Moved graphics card slot: So I move my graphics card down one slot on my motherboard in case there was a dodgy connection, but this didn't work
I have attached the output from the SF Diagnostic tool and also an additional text file generated from WhoCrashed with some additional information.
I bought a new laptop (Vaio Pro) a couple weeks ago, and it's been bluescreening repeatedly ever since (about 20 times in two weeks). I'd send it back to the manufacturer, but I'm currently being interviewed for several jobs, each of which requires an interview presentation, so I absolutely definitely need access to it at the moment, and that's unlikely to change in the next few weeks sadly.
I've attached the Diagnostic Tool output.
The error messages appear unrelated, which I would guess is symptomatic of a fairly low level problem.? The most common ones are "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA", but there are others (see dump files).
There's no obvious pattern to when the crashes occur, except maybe a very slight increased probability when playing a game (although it still happens when I'm working as well) .
I'm having problems with my newly built computer, i build this badboy 3 days ago but it has lots and lots of problems :/. Whenever i play a video game it crashes after around 10 minutes of gameplay, i can hear the speakers buzzing when it crashes and it won't throw me any error ( nor am i getting a BSOD ). I checked the event logs but my knowledge has failed me!
It's been a while but I just got a blue screen and The only thing I've done was install movie maker and I read that might be the cause, it baffles be because that's about the only thing I've changed in the last month with no issues.
Ever since I got my new pc, which was 3 months ago, I've been getting this message a lot, it occurs randomly, at one point I couldn't even install a pc game so I figured it was a memory problem thus I removed 2 of the memory chips (i have 4 8gb chip). after that the game installed perfectly but once in a while I still get this annoying frking message randomly, and it'll restart my pc... what am i suppose to do?
I run windows 8 pro 64bit 6.2.9200 Build 9200 Intel core i7-3970ghz, 6cores, 12 logical processors overclocked @ around 4100ghz 16gb ram radeon hd 7970
Here is the debug file after analyzing (C:WindowsMinidump-21513-7640-01.dmp)

I am having a slight issue with what I am assuming is my video card. I have a Powercolor HD7870 Tahiti MYST Edition and on some screens I will get these random rectangles that show up. I have a few pictures to show what I am talking about.
It almost always happens when I am on Twitter and most other websites dont have this issue. It is more annoying than anything else, it doesn't seem to affect anything but I figured that I would post here and hope that it isn't a big issue.
Not sure what is going on right now. My computer was fine this morning before I left for work. My wife said it was working fine this morning, and then she left it for a while and when it came back, she was getting blank screens.
When I took a look, it was blank. I did a hard shutdown and after the welcome screen, got a black screen of death. After several reboots, it finally got to the tile screen, but froze there.
So, right now, I'm operating out of safe mode where things seem more normal. Anyway, here are the logs.
I upgraded to the free Windows 8.1 from the store because of Battlefield 4 and that I heard it could work with the cpu frame render time spikes ( protip : it didn't ).
I did this before with the same error, restored back to Windows 8 and everything was back to normal, the thing is I want to get the bottom of this. WhoCrashed always said it could be a thermal issue, however this is IMPOSSIBLE since I've tested this system 22 times for hours on end to see if an overheat could happen under extreme conditions.
I have a gaming laptop and use it for playing video games. Recently I get blue screen and crashes playing online games like dota 2. I ran many different stress tests and they were all OK. I guess there is something wrong with my mice or audio driver because most of the times I get bluescreen after someone uses his/her mice in the game.
So recently I have been having issues where my laptop will randomly go to a blue screen and the error message "IRQL not Less or Equal..." Sometimes it will not show up until a half and hour, sometimes it starts in 15-20 min. It is just really random and it just restarts my computer inconveniently.
Anyways, I have Attached my SFC Scan from the program recommended... Also When i use SFC/Scannow on Command Prompt I am told " Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Detailes are included in the CBS.Log windirLogsCBSCBS.log. Fir example C:WindowsLogsCBSCBS.log. Note that logging is currently not supported in offline servicing scenarios.
Since Yesterday I've gotten the Window's 8 Blue screen saying the Error "MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE REQUESTS" now i got this multiple times yesterday, even got the "BAD_POOL_HEADER" Searched around and found out this was probably a Driver Error and updated my Drivers. Only my Video Card needed an update and after Installing the latest driver and restarting my Computer everything seemed fixed. But today i got the same IRP Error again.
I have an Busted up USB port and thought that maybe the Driver was confused about it and made the error so i Deactivated the specific driver to that Port, But after getting the same IRP error and restarted the comp again i got the "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" error at startup
Now my I comp started normally and I'm waiting for the next Error so I don't know what do to. I found out that there's some error Logs (C:/windows/minidump) but I don't know a program that'll make them readable.
I recently bought a Samsung EVO 840 120 gb SSD and did a clean install of Windows 8.1 Pro on it. Also formatted my other HDD's. And after that I started to experience at random times the complete freeze of windows and sometimes blue screen of death with "clock watchdog timeout" message. They usually happens when I unpacking an archive, during file copy, downloading big files, installing mods in nexus mod manager for skyrim or sometimes just in very random events. I noticed that usually when this happens hdd activity led on my pc case blinks continuously. When this freeze or BSOD happens I need to manually reset my computer.
(Also most of the archives I download from the internet I get crc errors for most when I try to unpack them, so I have redownload it again :/)

Nothing is overclocked. Everything has the latest drivers. Bios is updated to the latest.
I did CPU stress test got no errors. I did GPU stress test got no errors. I did RAM test got no errors.
I've recently purchased an MSI Dragon Edition. It started off the bat with top notch performance, no fps drops, no nothing, just pure perfection. Up until one day, it decided to completely crash on me, it got stuck on the loading BIOS screen and refused to redirect me to the log in page where i could access my desktop. After taking it to maintenance and formatting it from scratch, I've started noticing some subtle differences in comparison to the way it used to perform, performance drop, fps drop in game, slower powering on time, takes longer to shut down, not recognizing certain USB input such as my hard drive (not all the time).
About a week ago, while playing a game, my laptop crashed to the blue screen, with the error code displayed at the bottom telling me that the issue was "driver power state failure", after doing some research about the blue screen issue, people on other forums were discussing how the user should perform an SFD scan check from the CMD prompt.
After Scanning, my prompt informed me that I had multiple issues regarding my software files, "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them."
From the Scan, there were in total 27 errors to report as shown below. I'm also currently fully, thoroughly scanning my laptop for any viruses using Avast! Antivirus, hoping it might resolve my issue.
