Hardware Problems - Bsod Code 124


Alright, this windows 7 build of mine is starting to get on my nerves. I only seem to get about a week's worth of it running perfectly and then something happens. First it was the motherboard going bad, causing hdd read issues. It finally went completely and refused to recognize any hard drives. I got that rma'd and reinstalled everything and it ran better than it ever had before. Then my computer started chunking really hard while playing crysis and i quick left to check my temps. While the temps were well within acceptable limits (except maybe the north bridge which was loading at 67c and idling at about 50c), my system was telling me that although i had 6 gigs of ram installed, only 2 were usable. After swapping my dimms around, i found one that wouldn't read at all when in a 2 slot arrangment instead of a 3, and i'm now running with 4 usable gb's. Oddly enough, as soon as i did this the idle temp of my north bridge dropped down to 32c. And now, a few days later i get a random bsod while surfing the net. Bsod code 124 which after googling a bit i find is related to voltage and the cpu. However, i'm running my system at stock. I did bump the ram from 1066 to 1333 (1600 refused to work) but that's it. The voltage listed in bios is the same voltage the ram specs listed, and they're rated for 1600. What is going on here? I was about to order new ram, but if there is more going on here than just a bad dimm or two, i think i'd better wait in case i have to get even more parts for this machine. This is starting to drive me nuts. One thing after another. Oddly enough, that's been the case with every system i've built for the past 6 years. One piece at a time would randomly fail. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.system specs are in the signature. Edit: forgot to mention the first odd thing this build did. With both the original motherboard and the replacement motherboard, the first boot after system changes always "stutters". By that i mean it starts to power up for a second, and then shuts itself down. Then about 3 - 5 seconds later it powers itself back up again and continues on to post. It boots normally from that point on, unless i change hardware, or i change something in the bios, at which point it "stutter" boots again.

Bsod - Cannot Catch The 0x00 Code

For some reason my friend's laptop gets the blue screen of death. He took it to best buy and all they could tell him is that it was not the hard drive because they replaced that. It wont boot to windows, and it doesnt pause long enough on the blue screen for me to catch the 0x00 code. I am experienced in computers, but i have always worked on desktops, not laptops. Is there any way i can test his hardware without a hardware tester and spare hardware? Im thinking it is the onboard video or the whole motherboard itself. Best buy also said that it"may" be that the motherboard is bad. Any suggestions?

Hardware Stop Code In Xp Install, But Not Vista?

I'm putting a new computer together and i'm having a problem. I'm dual-booting with xp pro and vista ultimate (both are legit, fwiw ). When i install in xp, i always get a stop code error (can't remember the exact one right now. I know i got a 0x0000007a and 7b at one point). I have two sticks of 1 gb in this comp, so i took one out and tried. Still got the error. Took that one out, put the other one in. Still got the error. Not the memory. Then i decided to try vista first instead of xp, and it installed without a hitch!

So what i'm thinking at this point is that it could be the sata raid drivers i was using. So i've downloaded the latest from intel, and still am getting a stop code. Does anyone have any ideas? I've got to have xp because i use this computer for recording, mixing, mastering, etc. , And my programs aren't vista compatible yet.

Maxtor Hdd Showing 124 Gb Of Space Instead Of 250 Gb

I just bought a 250 gig hard drive for my pc at compusa. I originally wanted to buy a 100 gig hd but the salesman brought up allot of good points about going with this hd. I have allot of home movies of my family that i want to convert to digital and this was the perfect solution. Well initially i purchased this hd because my old hd was damaged and was to small. Well i got home, read the book that came with the hd and setup the bios, formated the hd and installed win xp pro. After it was installed i ran the maxblast3 software that came with the cd and it enabled large disk support or something like that. Well i went to my computer folder and clicked on my c: drive and noticed that it is only reading 124 gb of space instead of the 250. Is this hd defective? I tried calling maxtor's tech support but never got anywhere as its all computer messages.

Beep Code

Whenever i turn on my computer, it makes this long beep noise and i am guessing somethings wrong with it. The thing is, everything seems to work fine. >_>;; i tried to "decode" the beep code, but i must be quite stupid, because i can't seem to match with the right one. My motherboard is: ga-965p-ds3. The beep codes listed on its manual are:
-
1 short: system boots successfully
2 short: cmos setting error
1 long 1 short: dram or m/b error
1 long 2 short: monitor or display card error
1 long 3 short: keyboard error
1 long 9 short: bios rom error
Continuous long beeps: dram error
Continuous short beeps: power error
-

I have recorded the beep noise with my mp3 player and the sound has been slightly distorted(?), But it didn't change much from the actual sound.

Keyboard Error: ( Code 41 )

Yesterday someone came out and connected my computer to my home network. After they left and i got back to my computer, i found that my keyboard didn’t work. I found that in the device manage my keyboard's icon had an exclamation point next to it, and when i clicked on it it said:"windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)". I assumed there was something wrong with my ps2 port, so i went out and bought a usb keyboard. No luck. So far i have tried: removing the driver and reinstalling it, removing the driver, unplugging the keyboard, plugging it in and installing the driver, removing the driver in safe mode (which i can access by the way; the keyboard stops working when the computer starts up. ), Trying different keyboards, and even removing sp2 (that solved someone on a different forum's problems), and nothings worked so far. I've also tried system restore, but i don’t know for sure if it restored my computer to a time earlier than when it was messed with. The person who connected me to the network is on vacation now, so i cant really contact them. I've scoured the internet (using the onscreen keyboard), and can't find anything helpful, also i forgot to mention that the buttons on the top of the keyboard work. (Buttons specific to the keyboard like media, favorites, volume etc).

No Post, No Beep Code, Nothing

A week ago, i had a fully running system that had worked fine for the past 2 years. What ended up happening is my video card began to fail, artifacting all over the place and eventually locking up. I sent it in to get it rma'ed and its in the mail. I got bored yesterday and decided to upgrade my video gard since radeon 4870's were on sale for 170 at my local shop. The card worked great, i played some tf2, messed with the clocks a little bit, watched my little bro play some wow etc. It worked fantastic, and was only 170. Good deal it seems. I made sure that the power requirements would not be too much. The card only uses 180 or so if i remember correctly, so it should be fine with a 500w unless my math is beyond retarded. Anyways, this morning i turn my box on and get no bios post message, no beep code, nothing. It powers up fine, but absolutely nothing happens other than fan activity and power lights. I can feel the harddrive spinning up, and the cdrom drive also works. This is what i have done so far:

-Checked all connectors, reconnected the video card power supply cables (what are those called anyways?). -Checked that my monitors were working (both dvi and vga monitors). -Pulled out all sticks of ram but one w/ video card in. Nothing. -Pulled out all ram and video card, turned it on, nothing. -Pulled out the video card, turned it on. Nothing. -Reset the bios by taking out the battery and using the reset jumper as instructed by my mobo's manual, put it all back. Nothing. -All of the capacitors on the motherboard look intact. -As far as i know nothing got hot last night, i was watching the temps to see how hot the new card runs. When i power it on everything comes alive, but i noticed that the harddrive activity light has nothing on it. Not sure if that means anything. I don't have another video card or desktop handy to swap cards/boxes to verify the video card is working/eliminate it as the problem, but i plan to do that later on today and will update this post, i just had a minute to post so i was hoping i could get some tips.system:-

Asus p5l-vm 1394 mobo
Asus 8800gts 320mb (now its a sapphire radeon 4870 1gb)
4gb of kingston ddr2 ram
500w psu
Intel core 2 duo e6600
320gb seagate hard drive.

Nvidia Geforce - Code 12

I have a year old polywell with 2 gb of ram, amd 4800 and a nvidia geforce 7800 gt card and a samsung 970p monitor. Recently my screen has slowed down and when i scroll up and down instead of scrolling smoothly it scrolls one section of a time and has become very choppy. I went to my device manager and under display adaptor the nvidia geforce 7800 gt card has a exclamation point. When i went into the nvidia geforce 7800 gt card properties i get the following message for the device status:

"This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system. Click troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device. "

Is my graphics card dying?

When i go inside my computer and to make sure the graphic card is securely attached and put everything together, the graphic card works again and everything is fine. The next time i boot up the computer, the graphic card does not work and i get the same code 12 problem. Any advice on how to fix this.

This Device Cannot Start (code 10)

My samsung cdrw is generating the error: "this device cannot start. (Code 10)". I went to device manager to see why the drive is not listed on burning apps recorder lists. Device status box in properties is where i found the error. Is the drive done? Or is this some kind of setting adjustment i need to make.

Device Will Not Start (code 10)

Ok, concerning all that i found elsewhere in reference to external hard drives and the "device will not start (code 10)" message, i am going to take a leap here and assume that it may have crossed paths on this forum also. Believe me when i say that i tried every piece of advice i came across and none of it has worked. Yes, i changed usb slots, i removed the drivers from the registry physically and rebooting my win xp made no difference whatsoever. Does anyone have the solution to this problem?

I'm tempted to switch from usb to firewire but not so sure it wouldn't end up in the same spot and still leave my 200gb of info totally out of reach. I'm looking for a solution that leaves my external hd intact and functional unless there simply is no cure for this problem. I am looking for expert advice from the experts for i am not one.

Error: This Device Could Not Start ( Code 10 )

I have 895mb of ram on my system now, but i started with 1gb? Anyways, i kept getting blue screens and they told me to use a new video adapter. I got a new video card and it reccomends 1gb of ram. It has a vga adapter that you have to connect your monitor to for it to work. I went into device manager and it said "this device could not start (code 10). " Then after some lagg, the computer froze. Is this a ram problem? And if it is, can i just buy one stick of 2gb ram instead of adding 1gb to the current 895mb? I have windows vista home basic 32-bit. Int pent 4 proc. 3. 0ghz. I went into system setup when it booted, and changed the primary video card to pci-e, which is what the new video card runs on. The video card is the radeon hd 3650 1gb ddr2. This is like my 3rd topic, i know. Bare with me, i keep running into like 2 different problems every day.

Error Installing Nic - Code 35

My friend has a asus m3a79-t deluxe, he's trying to install a wireless card. The drivers install fine and everything is hunky dory except for this error:

Your computer's system firmware does not include enough information to properly configure and use this device. To use this device, contact your computer manufacturer to obtain a firmware or bios update. (Code 35)

His bios is fully up to date. It just doesn't make any sense to me. The only possible solutions are "update the bios" which he has done. So what the *** is going on? Thanks in advance

Oh. He has vista ultimate 64 bit, 8gb of ram, phenom ii 940 (i think), nothing's overclocked.

Beep Code - 1 Long, 2 Short

This morning my pc told me my network cable was unplugged after being on the net for 30 min. I rebooted the computer and was confronted with the beep code: 1 long, 2 short. No video though case and cpu heat-sink fans are running. I researched these codes and found : video ram error or memory error (depending on where i went). This is what i've tried:

(1) reseated video card and memory
(2) swapped video card to diff pci-e slot
(3) swapped video card for known working backup
(4) swapped memory for spare set of 2x512mb pc 3200
(5) gave mobo a once over to check for blown caps >>>none found

Things i'm contemplating doing:

(1) changing power supply (too much hassle now since i'm going to work in 20 mins). (2) try other 2 memory slots (didn't do it yet since manual said to use a1 and b1 slots for my configuration). This incident will make me get off my ass and finally upgrade to my i7 system in waiting, but i hate to build under these conditions. Any and all input and suggestions are appreciated. This is my system:

Asus a8n 32sli deluxe
Opteron 170 (stock)
Evga 8800gts video card
2x1gb ocz ddr pc3200 (set to correct voltages and timings)
Enermax noisetaker eg701 power supply
Samsung and seagate sata drives (2 of each)
Benq 1620 dvd burner

Beep Code After Changing Psu

I have an old pc socket 370, my psu 200w went wrong (capacitor blew up) so i had to change another 230w instead. But when i turn my pc on, my display was still black, it led flickered and there were a series of beeps: the first two beeps very fast, interrupted, 8 beeps, interrupted, 2 bip fast, interrupt and the last beep. Because my pc is too old, the mainboard's manual is lost. Can anyone help me with this hard situation. Ps: i tested ram, cmos battery in another pc. All worked well. My pc has 1 cdrom, 1 hdd, 1 agp 2x 4mb, 1 pci soundcard.

Quadro4 Nvs 400 Code 12

I'm the proud owner of two quadro4 nvs 400's, and i'll also be happy once i can fix a glitch with them. I had 1 nvs400 installed and 4 crt's worked fine. I just added another nvs400 today, and it revealed the glitches. When i have them both installed: device manager. Display adapters. Shows an error "code 12" of "not enough free resources for it to use". Only 1 of the 4 quadro nvs' has the error. Oddly, of the 6 monitors i have attached, only 3 of them show the desktop, whereas the previous single nvs card allowed 4 to work. The one that has the error is at:
Pci slot 3 (pci bus 7, device 4, function 0). It's 'enabled', and has the driver from 11-15-04 (6. 7. 2. 2). The resources tab says "if you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system. My system is a 925x express chipset (dell dimension 8400)
P4 3. 6ghz
1gig 533mhz ram
350 watts
It has no onboard video

I do investing for the benefit of charity and aid/education groups, so i really hope i can get 2 nvs400's running on this system.

Wii Error Code 52130

I keep trying to connect my wii to the router, but i can't seem to get it working anymore. I get error code 52130 i think it was. The thing i am not sure about is that i am using a wireless card with a laptop, and plugging that into the "internet" port on the router. I am wondering if i would also need at least 1 computer on the port though because i don't think the router can have an ip address without it having a computer to connect to first. However, i have done it before, and i'm not sure how. I also have a modem, but no other internet to my home.

Compaq Laptop Beep Code

Compaq laptop beep code 1-3-4-3 ? Get a beep code that translates as test 512 kb base memory. How do i fix? (Compaq presario laptop with xp). Answer:- 1-3-4-3 refers to "test 512kb base memory". It suggests replacing the ram. If you have more than one memory module, alternate them and see if the computer will boot with either of them installed. Or you can run memtest.

Error Code 2000 0142

Two days ago, i was using my laptop, a dell inspiron 1420, then all of a sudden, all my programs just stopped working. I was still able to move the cursor so i tried to shut down the computer. I tried clicking the shut down button a number of times but nothing happened so i shut it down manually. When i tried to turn it on, it said "error loading operating system". I then tried to run diagnostics to see what's wrong then i got the error code 2000-0142 during the self check test. I found out that this is a hard drive problem so i tried booting from the windows vista cd but it still didn't work. I then put the hard drive into an enclosure to try to repair it but when i plugged it into another computer, only the second partition of the drive showed up, which is the 10gb "recovery" partition. I tried browsing the partition and it seemed to be working well. I went to disk management to see what happened to the remaining 150gb partition and it said "eisa configuration". I tried right-clicking on the partition but the only thing that appears is "help". I then tried to format the drive just to see if it will allow me to but it always gets an error. Is there a way to retrieve my important files from the other partition?

Keyboard Error: ( Code 39 ) On Windows Vista

I just popped vista back onto my computer (32-bit) to use, having heard of improved support for it. However, my keyboard shows up as "standard 101/102-key or microsoft natural ps/2 keyboard", and has "windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)" in the status box. Location states it as "plugged into keyboard port". The funny thing is, it worked fine the first few boot-ups, and now the keyboard does nothing in windows but works fine all the way up to the loading-bar splash screen when windows begins to load (after post and all that). I'm convinced this is some sort of driver issue or conflict, but i've tried reinstalling the default driver and enabling/disabling the keyboard, without any result. Does anyone know what to do? I don't want to just reinstall vista again, because this could easily recur since i have no idea what even caused it .

Keyboard Error: ( Code 39 ) Driver May Be Corrupted

I recently bought some more ram for my comp, replacing the default 125 mb with 2 512 mb cards. I then turn on my wonderfully fast comp to find the keyboard no longer works. I had unplugged everything while putting in the new memory, so i figure that the plug in the comp is crapped out. When i look at all the hardware things, i find the keyboard, open the info, and under device status it says "windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)" so anyway, i figure the keyboard port is messed up. I go out to the trusty bestbuy, and buy a nice new usb keyboard (plugs into the usb not the keyboard port on the pc) i plug it in and run the installation, everything is okay. Then i try to type - nothing. The other buttons work on the keyboard, like the sleep button and the calculator (because we all know its too hard to hit the start button haha) the same problem comes up. I really need help figuring out how to get this freaking keyboard working.

Replacement Video Card - Nic Code 10

Had to send back my gtx 280 to evga for the pink screen issue. In the meantime, i've been using an 8800gt with no issues.

I have unistalled and reinstalled both the video card drivers and the nic drivers. Both lan ports give the same issue. When i put the 8800gt back in, voila, it works fine. I have also tried setting the irq in bios, but it didn't help. Do i need to reload?

Code 43 Hotfix From Amd For Ati Cards

Haven't got a chance to try it out, but let us know. This is the only thing making me keep xp around. I think its a catalyst update and requires 9. 3 drivers. I know the download says it is rc1, so hopefully a permanent fix is close. This is the code that lots have been having since 8. 10 where windows pops up and tells you it has disabled an incompatible adapter. Symptoms:

* When enabling crossfirex in the ati catalyst control center, the secondary gpu reports the following error "error code 43 - incompatible display"

* Whql drivers not available for ati radeon hd 4890 series

Resolution:

* Provides catalyst whql certified driver for the ati radeon hd 4890. * Resolve the "error code 43 - incompatible display" issue seen on the secondary gpu when enabling ati crossfirex in the ati catalyst control center. Recommendation:

Install this hotfix

Sata Drives - Device Cannot Start - Code 10

I have just reinstalled windows xp pro after being totally frustrated with vista ultimate 64. Install went fine with one exception. None of my sata drive are working, except drive c: which is where the os is installed. I have 6 external usb drives and 1 firewire and 1 esata drive, with 4 internal sata drives. The internal and the esata drives show as generic drives in device manager and give device cannot start code 10 in properties. I have service pack 3 installed and these are all used drives which functioned properly last time i had xp installed. I have installed the chipset. Inf for my intel board, tried using tweakui to select and deselect the drives. No luck. Getting to beating my head on the wall now syndrome . Anyone help with this dilema please. Drives are not raid configured and set to emulate ide in the bios. The highlighted drives are the sata ones that wont start. The maxtor is a sata drive too . And it works. Its the primary system drive.
