Debugging :: Computer Has Rebooted From Bug Check?
Oct 11, 2013
I am dual booting Windows 7 with Windows 8.1, and I went to reboot to go into Windows 7 and it gave me a BSOD. This is NOT the first time this has happened I had to leave Windows 8 in the past because of constant crashing. I am tired of this and I want an explanation.
GPU - Radeon HD 7850 2GB
CPU - AMD FX 8150 Eight-Core 3.6Ghz
RAM - Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz 8Gb - GSkill Ripjaws DDR3 1600MHz 8Gb = 16GB Total
MotherBoard - BIOSTAR TA970XE AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
PSU - CoolerMaster 700W
HDD - Samsung 1TB 7200 RPM
DVD/BluRay - ASUS Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA
Chassis - ThermalTake Chaser MK-I
I made a partition of 250GB for Windows 8. I don't know what else to say here. Windows 8 seems to just crash a lot, it happened on an OLDER computer of mine, but this is a brand new custom build. I can't even comprehend why it's crashing.
Also I guess it's worth noting I installed this today and installed windows updates today as well.
I forgot to mention I was using COMODO Anti-Virus, I saw in a previous post about my exact error that it had something to do with Comodo. I have since uninstalled that.
Also here is a preview of the error:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0xc0000018 (0xffffc0000019c5d0, 0xffffc000009ea9f0, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000). A dump was saved in: C:WindowsMEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 101113-34796-01.
Yesterday when I watched one of my favourite movies with Pot Player I got the BSOD and my computer automatically rebooted itself. I followed the procedure by making .zip file with SF_Diagnostic_Tool.exe and I uploaded the .zip in my thread.
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..
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.
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:
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.
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.
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 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?
