Ive been having some random BSOD`s all pointing to different files, i`ve even had two today (of which i can only give one error code since the other BSOD was all teared up and unreadable) I`ve had one that said:
The other BSOD`s were not legible. Im currently using windows 8 and not 8.1 since i am a gamer and i`ve heard a lot of bad things about 8.1 and gaming so i never upgraded. I`m at a loss of what to do here on a side note i`ve also noticed that some games (usually steam games and particularly a game called Dust: an Elysian tail) keep crashing with the notification:
So I have a new Windows 8.1 build and its been having quite a few problems. On start ups if I don't go into bios before loading into windows I get a blue screen. I also get lots of crashes, usually when playing games. If you need me to upload any other files let me know. Edward.(I posted this same thing on windowsforums.com and no one has replied yet so I figured I would post here too.l) In the zip folder I have cpuz info, ramnom info and W7F diagnostic tool reports.
I got a brand-new X1 Carbon ThinkPad about a week ago, and I have been experiencing various BSODs, which I have uploaded the minidump files of here.
They have varied from the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error to KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. I thought that the problem was related to my graphics card (it still very well may be), so I removed and redownloaded the graphics driver, but to no avail; the BSODs still occurred. The only thing that the various BSODs have in common is that one of the red highlighted files in BlueScreenView is always ntoskrnl.exe.
So, my computer has been getting the BSOD lately for the past month or so. I get at least one BSOD everyday and sometimes two or three of them. From 12 am to now, I have gotten the BSOD three times. It happens when I play games too, but I don't think the games are the cause of the BSODs because they occur even when I'm not playing. I play CS: GO and Borderlands 2 if that will work. The BSODs are always IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL errors and then BlueScreenView says it has something to do with ntoskrnl.exe. I have attached the ZIP file that the SF Diagnostic Tool recommends.
My problem is only happening when gaming and at random times, i also have crashes to desktop, but i dont know if the 2 problems are realated. Anyways lately i have been getting some BSODS thats mainly looking to be related to ntoskrnl.exe and ntkrnlmp.exe when i look in "whocrashed"
I uploaded the .zip from the SFD program from your website along with the latest minidump files (080514-4031-01 beeing the latest).
It only occurred first if and only if I was playing, so I thought it was a compatibility prob so I just quit. But when I played this game Dragon Nest it too BSOD's or just plain PC crash. So I thought ok I cant play these 2 games. BUT when it happened too in Dota2, I think that's too much of a coincidence. Now my PC just random crashes and I really dont know why.
PC specs: Core i3-3240 Geforce GT420 4g ram Windows 8 64bit
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.
My laptop has been crashing regularly and very often for about a month. Happens most of the time when I open a new webpage on chrome, or a video plays in browser - and I get this error displayed: Attempted Execute of NoExecute Memory.
I suppose this is a driver problem - this became a menace ever since I tried updating my video and audio drivers from the HP Website (Using a HP Envy DV6 7245us Laptop). I've tried reinstalling the drivers but it didn't solve the problem.
The laptop is new - bought it in September. Worked fine. Ran virus scans - nothing detected (I use BitDefender).
OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit RAM: 6 GB 2.3GHz up to 3.2GHz AMD Quad-Core A10-4600M Accelerated Processor AMD Radeon HD 7660G Discrete-Class graphics and up to 3060MB total graphics memory
I have a problem with my machine I've been battling for months now. It will just randomly restart and I could be doing anything. It has happened when browsing the web, playing games, and even when the motherboard logo shows up during startup.
It never seems to crash when running Prime95 or OCCT stress tests. What I've done:
Hardware -Re-installed windows twice -Purchased new motherboard -Purchased new CPU cooler (from air into liquid) -Purchased new GPU (HD7950 to GTX780) -Purchased SSD -Monitoring software showed PSU 12v rail running at 10.8v when stressed. Checked 4 pin molex connector with voltmeter and it measured 12.2v and it dropped to 12.1v under stress. -Changed the case, thought it was a short circuit somewhere.
Software -Run multiple stress tests which did not cause a crash. -Ran Prime95 and Battlefield 4 at the same time. No crash -Updated GPU drivers -Updated motherboard drivers
-Can't update BIOS, scared computer will restart during the flash. My motherboard revision is 1.01 and -I've run memtest for 5 hours, but I should do it again
Sometimes, instead of a restart, my display will turn off and any sound playing will begin to loop. PC will be unresponsive. CPU temps reach only about 35 degrees under full load.
I tried to watch downloaded .avi movies with Windows Media Player, and the video quality is very poor, can see blocks and artifacts everywhere. When I watch the same movies with VLC, it is clear. I think it is a codec problem. What is the best codec to apply to Windows 8 Media Player, so we can watch movies clearly?
I only just very recently received this laptop as a gift, but as soon as I started watching movies on my Netflix account I noticed that the screen would briefly go black then return to my program. This happens very often, once every 2 to 5 minutes. And this only happens when I'm trying to watch movies. Browsing and game play is flawless. What could be the issue? It was recommended that I install Windows 8.1 upon setting up my laptop, so I did just that. I didn't play around with Windows 8 beforehand, though, so I don't know if the problem is the operating system or not.
my PC's been plagued by various issues for a while now, such as various BSODs and programs suddenly crashing and unwilling to start again until a reboot. I'm hoping the fix for the latter is the same as the fix for the BSODs.
Since the blue screens usually seem to reference some form of memory, be it physical or virtual, I've had windows memory diagnostics do a bunch of extended passes, but it found no problems, and Samsung Magician says the SSD is fine too, which means I'm increasingly hopeful it's just a software issue.
Latest dump was made with driver verifier, by the way.
PC is an Asus Z87 pro mobo, with i7 4770k CPU and Geforce GTX 780.
I bought a new custom built PC from EveTech around 2 months ago for $1900.00. I installed windows 8.1 on it, and have just been receiving ENDLESS BSODs. At first I found out that Windows 8.1 does have issues with BSOD, so I installed Windows 8, hoping this would have been the solution.
I started doing some investigations on how to read BSODs, and initially I thought it was because of outdated drivers, bad memory etc, because all the posts that I read said that this is MOSTLY the cause of BSODs. I installed every program under the sun to search my drivers, and all stated that everything is updated...
Going further in the investigations, I thought it was because of overclocked CPU and GPU hardware, but even after resetting it back to factory default, I am still having this issue.
The absolute worst part of this, is that the BSODs are never the same - they are constantly throwing a new .sys file stating that "this is the problem".
Previously with win7, I had a Windows 8 dually installed. Back then, I used to get the first error only, very frequently, and only in Windows 8. I had ignored them because I had Windows 8 installed only for testing purposes, and I thought they would go away. But now, they just keep popping up, with the reference by pointer error popping up 4 damn times in a row. And may I also add just how slow my PC gets before a BSOD?
I've tried looking them up, but the solutions seem to involve the removal of different drivers. So I thought of just creating a new thread instead. I have a few games installed and I do overclock my pc sometimes, but the recent BSOD (irql) took place when I was watching a video on youtube. I am attaching the SF grab and a bluescreenview report (the 5th error in it is the dpc watchdog violation).
This might be completely irrelevant, but I'll mention it anyway. The previous Windows 8 is still installed. I tried deleting it from msconfig, and was successful, but the files are still there and it seems to be the 'system partition' right now. See my previous thread for more info.
Happened again. Uploading SF grab with bluescreenview report.
Happened a few more times. I'm trying to keep the logs updated. Another thing; my PC now seems to be very slow and sometimes when a crash occurs, all the online accounts I'm logged into (Facebook, Eight Forums, etc.) automatically logout. This was also the case in my earlier Windows 8 installation. And the latest crash appears to be of a different driver.
What I've already tested: 1) Disks full scanned in HD Tune (no problem). About SMART: Samsung shows warning state in C7, but other programs don't see any problem. It shows 1348 and had not increased. 2) RAM tested separately for 3,5 and 7 hours - no errors. But it showed strange timings (19-15-15-31) when bios and CPU-Z says correct: 9-9-9-24 3) PSU tested with multimeter. Voltages are same in idle and stress: 5 V: 5,20-5,23, 12 V: 12,10-12,15, 3,3 V: 3,35-3,39. They were changing continuously between the varies, don't know if it's correct. 4) Temperatures are OK 5) No OC 6) 10 min Furmark - no problems
BSoD info: 1st: PC was quite idle - I left it for download games on Origin and Steam 2nd: computer was idle, maybe chrome and instant messenger on but I didn't use the PC 3rd: It was at the end or even after the origin finished downloading a update and when watching flash player video
I did a fresh install hoping that it would get rid of my BSODs which were numerous. So far, I only have 5 BSODs that I have had the patience to allow Windows to get to 100% on. I easily BSOD once a day, most are with MEMORY_MANAGEMENT or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.
I have run memtest86+ ad nauseum with no errors, as well as Prime 95 for over 24 hours, I am stable and these are not temperature errors (30c idle, 71c at load).
I've tried lots of different driver updates across everything to solve these BSOD errors and at many times had thought I'd solved them only to crash later. They *mostly* occur during gaming, but a couple times have just been while browsing the web.
I've uploaded the required .zip according to instructions and here's a screenshot of Speccy, showing my system specs:
I have been experiencing bluescreens with increasing regularity. I've made sure all of my drivers are up to date. I've run dskchk, and done the windows memory test, neither of which have come up with anything. I am at a loss of where to go from here as these dmp files make no sense to me. I've attached the .zip from the sf diagnostic tool.

I needed Windows again and decided to try it once again and immediatly got random BSOD again, right after a fresh installation and even after getting all updates and all the newest device drivers. Being within warranty I handed the notebook in to an authorized service partner. Disappointed I switched back to Linux and never had the time to investigate the problems any further. I also installed Windows 8 and the problems persisted.
Now I decided to investigate any further and decided to install Windows 8.1. From the beginning and also after upgrading to the newest available device drivers I'm experiencing the following BSOD.
Just a screenshot from BlueScreenView:
Attached you find the results of SF Diagnostic Tool. I also get some other instabilities, like crashing System Services, as shown in Event Viewer screenshot:
I did some memory tests, several with different versions of MEMTEST86+ and one over 48 hours with Windows Memory Diagnostic. I also ran Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool and got no errors.Assuming failing device drivers I enabled Driver Verifier as described in the forum (only mentioned tests and non-MS-drivers) and oddly I experienced only 1 BSOD during about 48 hours of operation with activated driver verifier (but unfortunately nothing driver specific). Normally I get at least 2 BSOD a day.
I've a problem with my computer. From a few day i expect a random BSOD on my computer. I don't have do nothing like hardware modify or software upgrade but the problem still persist.
Today I've try to reinstall my OS (Windows 8.1 Update 1) but the problem still persist. Try again without install any driver, but only following Windows Update and the problem appear again. I've 2 MiniDump and a FullDump ...
*first BSOD, when i was playing Battlefield 4 Online
*second bsod I'm playing War of Mercenaries (in facebook)
*third bsod I'm playing War of Mercenaries (in facebook).
and some random bsod.

I got a new Dell XPS 8700 a few days ago, and have been getting pretty random BSODs always containing ntoskrnl.exe as the cause on my blue screen viewer. They tend to happen sometimes in game, on game closing and once on start-up. Some games I can play for hours and no blue screen some I play for a while and I get one. I've tested all my RAM and my HDD for bad sectors and errors.
I have uploaded my dump files and system info
UPDATE: I'm not 100% positive but it seems like these BSODs only happen on games that have access to an internet connection. It has never happened on games that are single player only.
I have bought my Acer laptop about 6 weeks ago and immediately updated to windows 8.1 (it had preinstalled windows 8). So after doing that I got first BSOD in two or three days. Because I thought I did something wrong during the update or when installing some of my applications, I decided to refresh my computer to factory settings after getting a couple of more BSOD's. So I did a factory reset and updated to windows 8.1 according to the instructions by Acer. Everything went great except for one thing. After a couple of days, BSOD's began repeating again. So I decided to update all of my drivers and uninstall McAfee internet suite. Nothing worked.
I finally decided to do another factory reset, but this time to stay on Windows 8 and run only basic software for couple of days and then begin to install some of additional applications. Everything went fine, but after two weeks without crash, it happened again. And it happened random, so I didn't keep in mind which software was last installed. So that first one on Windows 8 happened on March 19th, and second one happened today.
Both of them were driver_irql_not_less_or_equal with ntoskrnl.exe
I don't know anymore what to do... I'm including .zip file in attachments for further analysis.
I've been getting BSODs a few times a day when I'm not plugged into an external monitor. Sometimes I'll get an artifacted screen or just a random restart. I thought it might be an overheating issue so I took apart my computer and cleaned all the dust out. While it worked for temperatures a little, it didn't solve any of the restarting problems. The max temperature range has been similar (around 64-67~ degrees C under load) but the min and average has been a little better. (47 and low to mid 50s respectively)
The main filenames that have come up in the BSODs have been ntoskrnl.exeintelppm.sys
My problems started on 8, so I did a fresh reinstall of Windows, updated to 8.1 and reinstalled all the newest driversI kept having problems so I uninstalled the newest processor driver from Intel and used the one that HP suggested. If anything the BSODs have been more frequent.I've done the standard diagnostic tests in the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI) tool without any errors although twice after my computer has been having rebooting fits it has frozen up before I even got to the tests.I've done Intel's Processor Diagnosis Tool a few times and have passed everything at load level 8. It says my temperature is 35 degrees C below maximum.
Things I haven't done
Memtest for any extended length of timeAnything y'all can come up with
I've attached the output the SF Diagnostic Tool is giving me.
edit:and if it's not a driver issue, I'm hoping it's a memory one. Since the Intel HD 3000 would share system RAM, if the system RAM was faulty that could be a reason why my computer
1) freezes outside of windows on occasion,
2)artifacts w/ a frozen system,
I'm not sure why it would change when I plug a monitor in through HDMI though. I don't know if or how the HD3000 would handle an external monitor any differently.
I have problems with BSODs and computer unexpected power loose. Even in idle mode computer cxan restart itself. When I go to the sleep mode and wake it up I have always mutiple bsods at the windows startup. After few resets it starting up correctly and then sometimes (sometimes not) rebooted in second.
In my computer there is minimal hardware connected:
