Blue Screen Of Death - Computer Freeze

Ok. My pc just went through a bsod (blue screen of death) and i turned it off. When i try to turn it back on the light is on and everything but there is no signal to the monitor. I tried checking the cables and everything is fine. Is there anything that can cause this like a virus or something?

I just closed sro (silk road online) and moved my mouse over a shortcut icon and then the computer froze for about half a second and the bsod popped up. I have avg and just did a scan this morning so i dont think it was a virus. I'm just going to cut the power and go to sleep and hope that god loves me and fixes the computer. Im sort of freaking out now because i just got the computer. For christmas and my dad just got me a new graphics card (look for my other topic and you will know) and its coming in the mail. And my dad wont get me another one. This is why i stick to macs. I got about $110 from christmas and if my computer is dead im going to have to wait about 4 or 5 more years.

Bsod's - Blue Screen Of Death

Well. I got my new system and all, and i put it together last night. I have it a good test run before heading to bed. Ran perfectly. So this morning, i get back on it, and decide to install norton. The installation goes through fine and everything. I restart, as needed by norton, and i notice that during post, it says my ram is "ddr333mhz, single channel". I realize that this is wrong, since the ram i purchased is pc3200, (ddr400mhz), and dual channel. I decide to go to the motherboard's user manual to see if there was something i needed to do to make it run in dual channel mode. Doh! I had placed both sticks of ram on the same channel.

I shut down windows, switch off and unplug the psu, open the case, and then i move the ram to its second channel. I close everything up and boot up windows. Everything running fine for a while until i start to install age of empires iii. Blue screen. I decided to restart, thinking it was just a one time error, but it wasn't. It seemed like every time i tried to install something, and like. Surf the web or something, it would crash/restart/bsod on me. I try a reinstall. I think i got about 8 minutes into the install, (after the initial format > copy files to hdd process), before it gave me a bsod. I used my newer copy of winxp pro, (the ones now that come with sp2 already installed).

Ok, i thought. Maybe it's the windows disc, (it's pretty scratched). I decide to use my older, non-sp2 installation disc. "Success!" I thought. Windows boots and everything. Though, i notice that my 160gb hdd is only being detected as 127gb. A bit strange i thought, so i tried to i start to install sp2, (from the disc from microsoft), to see if that would solve the hdd space problem. Crashed, (it restarts itself after every crash). I tried installing some device drivers. Some were successful, but the usb 2. 0 drivers for some reason required at least sp1. So i moved on to the next set of drivers. Crash. Once again, i tried the sp2 installation. It amazingly went through.

So now that i'm back on sp2, things seem a bit more stable. It now detects the hdd to about what it should be, (158gb). I could now install video drivers and sound drivers and whatnot, without a problem. Seemed perfectly fine, at last. Until about 5 minutes ago, where it crashed for no reason, after 30 or so seconds from a boot. At this point, i'm pretty ***. I'm might try to see if it'll work fine, back on a single channel, since it seemed to be working fine the first time. Does anyone know what might be causing the problem, anyway?

Update: went into bios and manually set the memory clock speed to 333mhz, instead of 400mhz. Everything runs perfectly. This is somewhat of a downer, since i would like to get the full potential i can from this memory. It puzzles me as to why i can't run at it's full speed. The board supports ddr400mhz dual channel ram, so i don't see where the problem could be.

Blue Screen Of Death While At Default

Well, my computer was up for like an hour, and when i tried to play some bf1942 i got a very brief blue screen (~. 2 seconds) and then a restart. Tried to boot into windows, the second my desktop loaded, got another blue screen (this time ~2 seconds), and yet another restart. I'm pretty sure i can rule out heat. As i've got a prometeia mach i phase change. The bios is at default, but what else could it be? My mem is at default as well.

Windows Blue Screen Of Death

My new dell's hard drive died so i started using my older celeron dell. It's got 255mb of ram and slow but i've been fixing her up and she ran nicely. Yesterday sound stopped playing, so i went to the recovery ( yes i made sure everything was un-muted ) and clicked system restore, and selected a restore point to the last time my computer worked properly. It began it's shut down and had a loading bar saying system is restoring. After it's start up i get a blue stop screen:

An attempt was made to write to read-only memory. Check to make sure any hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates that you might need. If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable bios memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components restart and press f8 for advanced options. Ok it wont let me into safe mode, it gives me these options.

Safe mode with networking
Safe mode command prompt

Enable boot logging ( didn't work )

Enable vga mode ( not sure what this does but that didn't work either )

Last known good config. ( I wish. But didn't work )

Directory services restore mode ( didn't work )

Debugging mode

Disable auto restart on system failure ( didn't work )

Start window normally


Return to os choices menu

The only hardware on that computer is the mouse, keyboard and speakers, i unplugged all of these then restarted and got the same message. Finding new software or disabling what ever would be fine but it wont start up and let me log in. Am i able to disable the needed bios features from the setup menu? Also i don't have windows home edition disk so i can't reinstall that at the moment.

How To Fix Blue Screen Of Death?

The bsod has been popping up for the past 2 days and it's really annoying. I saved my music, pictures, videos, and google chrome data onto my external hard drive, but i don't know how to save the specific stuff like program files onto it too. Since it's a 500gb ex hdd, it can handle the 90gb i have stored on my computer. Also, i am in safe mode right now with networking so i'm able to use the internet. This is the microsoft windows report i have so far:

Problem signature:
Problem event name: bluescreen
Os version: 6. 0. 6001. 2. 1. 0. 768. 3
Locale id: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
Bccode: 50
Bcp1: fffffffb
Bcp2: 00000000
Bcp3: 8204e20c
Bcp4: 00000000
Os version: 6_0_6001
Service pack: 1_0
Product: 768_1

Files that help describe the problem:

If you say to delete recently installed programs, how would i know what programs were recently installed? I don't have the best memory. Also, i have a 17" dell inspiron 1720 from 2007 i believe. It has 4gb of custom installed ram and 1. 47 intel processor.

Blue Screen Of Death With Vista

System info:

Acer aspire ax3810
Windows vista home prem. 64-bit
Cpu - q8300 intel core 2 quad
Mem - 8gb ddr3
750gb hard drive

I also have an ati 4650 1024mb graphics card. I unhooked my computer, which was running as beautifully as ever, and packed it away in it's original packaging so that our cats wouldn't mess it up when my wife and i were in egypt for fifteen days. I put the boxes in a cool, dry closet. We got back last night and i unpacked the pc before my suitcase. It was a bit slower than before but i figured it was just getting into the flow of being used again. My wife was away, so i got mass effect 2 up and running, which had been running perfectly before i left, and started to play.

Two minutes into the game, my system crashes and i get a "blue screen of death" message. I thought i noticed the memory dump reading "complete, " but as i was turning off the computer, i noticed it said "physical memory dump '40'". The computer shuts down. I turn it on again - "no signal" on the monitor. There was also a noticeable delay from the time i hit the power button to the time the computer started up. I turned the computer off again, but then the keyboard light and the mouse light remained on, unusual because they usually turn off with the computer.

I disconnected the monitor cables and the power cables, reattached them tightly, turned the computer on again, and it runs normally for 45 minutes. I'm looking through photos from egypt and the blue screen appears again. I wait until the physical memory dump is complete before turning off the computer. Since then, i have not been able to get past "no signal. " Not experiencing the 3-5 second delays with the power anymore, and the keyboard turns off with the pc, but the monitor is not picking up any signal.

Would love some help. Have had the pc for less than a year, and would prefer not having to ship it off to a tech shop for a week or something. I've since opened up the computer, cleaned the dust out and off of the graphics card, reassembled it, and it started working again. I started the computer in safe mode, and then it shut down after two minutes or so with the blue screen message without giving me a chance to run any diagnostics. What should i do now?

Blue Screen Of Death When Reading Cd Rom

The problem is with a client's system. I turned it on, and went to install an updated version of mira scan. It was a burned cd and it read ok. I extracted the setup files to the hard drive. Etc etc. After this, i restarted to get the scanner working. I then went to install is norton anti-virus. I put in the cd, closed it, and then as soon as the cd rom started to read, the system gave me a blue screen. An exception occured at. Blah blah. I hit enter, and sometimes it will do it again, and sometimes explorer crashes and then just comes back. As soon as i go to my computer and the cd rom reads, the same thing again. Each time, the "occured at:" is different. I didn't have much time to look at it last night, so i just left it. I am going to try my dvd drive in it to see if it still does it. Nothing has been changed though. The last thing that was done was that scanner software!

Any ideas guys?

Gtx 260 Blue Screen Of Death

Anyway when i play gta iv: after a minute it begins to show weird artifacts, also the textures seem to have problems and then. Bluescreen of death! Oh no. Installed the newest drivers (instead of the ones from the cd) and it was bsod. Then installed the nvidia gtaiv optimized drivers, bsod. Then some-one mentioned if you underclock it with 5mhz it works fine. So i installed ntune from nvidia. But when you go to preferences and you have to accept the license agreement: blue screen of death before it does anything. I don't even see new options or whatever. What to do people? I saw this coming more regularly. If people need more specs i'll look 'm up. Even got a pic of my pc case from the inside but i suppose that wouldn't be much help. I did not overclock anything, installed all the latest drivers, everything is legal, and didn't do anything weird. I bought this whole pc system. Yesterday.system specs:

Intel core i7 920 @ 2. 67 ghz
Nvidia geforce gtx 260 vid card
6gb ddr3 1600 ram
Motherboard: msi x59 platinum
Vista 64 + sp1

How To Begin To Fix Bsod ( Blue Screen Of Death ) ?

I came turned on the monitor i saw the bsod with the following code:

Stop: 0x000000f4 (0x00000003 0x86b79580 0x86b796f-4 0x805d1180)

I am guessing these might be caused by millions of things. But to see what really triggered this, i looked at the "system event viewer" but there plenty of things logged till the time i actually restarted the computer while bsod was still on the screen. The most common reason why bsods are caused is due to bad memory and bad mobo's but ive spent money into quality stuff. So, how should i start?. I really got frustrated by seeing this. The reason why i spent alot is because i didnt want to see these blue screens.

Hard Drive Corrupt ? Random Blue Screens Of Death

Earlier today i started getting random blue screens of death. After reboots and check disk i uninstalled windows 7 and installed windows vista. I left everything on my storage drive untouched. After installing vista everything seemed back to normal until i tried to move some stuff from my storage drive over to the main os drive. The blue screens of death starting popping out again and random errors. It's very frustrating since i have a lot of important stuff in this storage drive and it seems like i have to reformat. But before i do i am wondering if anyone knows the exact problem.

Computer Freeze At Bios And Screen Goes Black

Last friday the computer stopped working correctly. On start up it boots normally which it goes past the bios screen and can even enter the bios utility as would any normal working computer would do. Though this is the catch. Once the computer past the normal bios and begins to enter to the hard drive to boot from windows. The screen goes black, i think it freezes there, though i'm not sure because my friend only told me this stuff over the phone. These are some things that i told him to try over the phone. One make sure you test each ram (512mbx2) test each ram stick by itself. Make sure that you have only one in at a time, and alternate from each ram stick you have. So that you can test the memory because it might be damaged. After doing all that work. Testing the memory didn't do anything the computer still crashed with 512mb or 1024mb it didn't matter what it had, it still crashed. So i'm asking what you guys might think about this problem, and if you have any suggestions at specifications:

Intel core 2 duo 1. 86ghz
Asus ai series motherboard
512mbx2 (1024mb)
Ati radeon 1600 series pci-express video card
320gb hard drive

Blue Screen - Computer Boot Problems

This morning i turned on one of my computers and after a couple minutes i was hit with the blue screen of death. This was the first time this computer gave me back a blue screen. So i restarted the computer and it turns on and everything but nothing is being sent to my monitor, my monitor just stays in stand-by mode. Now i know the problem isn't my monitor as i just switch source to my other computer and it works, so i'm just wondering where the problem could be? I have a feeling its the videocard, but if it was then why would it even display the blue screen? Wouldnt the monitor of just gone blank? I don't want to go out and purchase a new videocard if that isn't the problem.

Computer Blue Screen, Now No Video From 3850

Card is dead correct? I'm a tad lazy to do some testing, but i'm going to assume the card is no good anymore. On the plus side maybe i can give my sister my 8800gtx for $60 and i can get a 4870 or something.

Computer Freeze, Screen Turns Black For Few Seconds Before Returning To Normal

The past few days my computer would freeze and then the screen would turn black for a few seconds before returning to normal. This happened whil surfing the web. I noticed that the desktop had a couple red and white and green pixel boxes that would appear after this happened. I reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows xp. Got the computer running and the video seemed fine. I then installed my nvidia driver for my video card, and once i did that i started to see even more pixels and fonts became slightly distorted. My computer would then freeze worse that before, and it would not return to normal use. I had to uninstall the video card drivers for the time being. Do i need a new video card or could it possibly be a motherboard issue?

Edit: i downloaded xp service pack 2. And now my computer freezes like it did originally. I never installed the nvidia drivers from the cd. I'm not sure if it was included with service pack 2. But i have noticed some distortion of text. The problem is not as bad as when i had installed the drivers liek i mentioned above.

Dell Computer Wont Turn On - Blue Screen - Fatal Error Has Occurred

My dell computer won't turn on, it only shows a blue screen that reads a fatal error has occurred. ? I was installing the new version of adobe and then my computer froze. Now when i try to turn it back on it gives me a few options to start it up, but they all lead to the same blue screen. I have tried unplugging the computer, calling dell, and looking online but none of the answers seem to work. If anyone could give me advice on how to fix the problem that would be great.

Nvidia / Evga / Pink Screen Of Death

Thought it be funny to share this. The new bsod is psod (pink screen of death). Probably just some driver error. But perhaps it could be a hardware defect / bad batch. Seems to effect gtx260 and maybe 280s.

Pc Goes To Xp Load Screen Then Into Blue Screen

I have a laptop that when it boots it goes to the xp load screen for about 2 seconds and then a blue screen of love. I ran a linux boot disk to try to trouble shoot it but we couldn't get it to see the drive. I bought a sata 2. 5 drive enclosure and hooked it up to my other computer with the laptop drive in it and it can't see it. The drive gets warm but thats all. I pulled my other laptop drive out and put it into the drive enclosure and it worked fine. What can i do? What options do i have to see if this is still a good drive? Does this mean the drive is dead? Do i need to load drivers? Can i force mount it? Any thoughts?

Keep Getting Blue Screen

I have just built a new p. C, it is an amd athlon 3700+ 64 bit processor, 1gig of ddr ram an ati radeon x550 256mb gamers edition video card and an 80gig hdd (i'll be putting another 80gig on soon). The motherboard is an asus a8n-e. The problem i'm having is it keeps going to a blue screen at any time it feels like it and i get the following msg stop 0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0xbfbc73df, 0xa8b83940, 0x00000000) atiduag.dll address bfbc73df base @ bfac7000 datestamp 4420c719. It also tells me that i should try a bios update or change my adapter or update the drivers. I wrote to ati, they said to uninstall all ati stuff from the p. C restart, turn the antivirus off and install the newest driver. I have done this but still get the same msg. I have yet to update the bios as i'm not sure what i'm doing in that area. I gather the problem is with the file atiduag.dll but i'm not sure what to do about it. I also wanted to go in, in safemode but don't know what buttons to push to get into safe mode. Del gets me into setup and f8 gets me into the boot setup. I'm still not sure if it's a video card prob or a motherboard prob, but i do know it needs fixing. If anyone has any ideas, could they please help me out as i'm getting rather frustrated. I'm also not using the catalyst control center at the moment.

Memtest - Blue Screen

My computer has had various blue screens in the last few days. Mostly its machine_check_exception or critical_structure_corruption. It passes memtest with flying colors, or so i thought! I decided to run orthos over night and i set it to reboot upon bsod. I also inserted the memtest cd so as soon as it rebooted it would start running memtest. Well as soon as it crashed and memtest launched it spammed hundreds of errors. Powered off, turned back on, passed memtest with flying colors. Any ideas here? Read more at the forum.

Constant Random Blue Screen

Well for various reasons (one being constant random blue screens) i decided to format and reinstall windows last night. So i open up the box, disconnect all storage drives put in the windows installation cd and start, use the usual settings after it's done copying files it blue screens. So i shut down and retry the whole thing again, and blue screen after the copying files portion again. First test, memory. Ran memtest86 and it had an error on test 4. I took out both sticks and one of the gold connectors on one of the sticks looked burned. So i put that aside inspected the other one and put it back in the system. Started the windows installation and crashed in the same spot. So i thought maybe i put the memory in the slot that the burned stick was in so i put it in the other spot and ran memtest86 and it passed 4 full test passes. Started windows installation. Blue screen in the same spot. Second test, hard drive - made a wd diag tool cd and did a quick scan - no errors, did a full scan - no errors. Third test, one of the pci devices. I took out all pci devices. Try again and blue screen on the same spot once again. Fourth test, video card - so i switched video cards with my bro's comp. Try to install again and once again blue screen in the same spot. At this point the only thing i can think of doing is taking everything out of the system and trying the install as bare as possible. Any thing you guys suggest?
