Last night the power went out and I tripped over something and hit my desk causing The GPU my PC to unseat itself. This morning when I booted it up. My computer is unusable because I get the Nvidia kernel error. I tried everything I could think of but to no avail. Will physical damage cause such a problem?

Do you know that the GPU unseated itself because you inspected something with your own eyes? Or for some other reason?

You say you "tried everything I could think of". Name as many of those things as you can recall.

Filling out your system specifications might help.

I have been having serious issues with the 750M (non-SLI) on this laptop. It will not work at all. I have noticed this issue on both Windows 8.1 (factory image) and Windows 7 (fresh install). Device manager lists it as saying: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43). Disabling and re-enabling the device makes the screen flicker and nothing else. I have tried various driver version configurations (with a driver sweeper run each time) and NOTHING will get it to work on either OS so I am beginning to be convinced that this laptop is a POS and has had the 750M video card die. Attempting to play games clearly illustrates that the intel GPU is being used instead as there is very low FPS.DXDiag will not show the video card even if I disable the intel GPU.GPU-Z shows the video card, but you cant see anything about frequencies or fillrates, bandwidth, sensors etc.

I am currently running the 358.50 version of GeForce drivers, however there are newer ones available (361.43). For some reason when I tried updating, my system got really unstable and eventually blue screened with KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE. When I rebooted it was fine, until I tried to use a graphics intensive application (Photoshop) that caused my laptop to switch from Intel HD to NVidia. My computer locked up and crashed again. I booted into safe mode and rolled back the driver, but I need to install that driver eventually as I use this laptop for gaming and Photoshop.

Maybe another driver needs to be updated? Maybe it's my Intel driver? I couldn't find any issues comparable to mine so I'm assuming there is a conflict I can't find. Thanks for any help you can give me, I don't know much about how drivers work.

A:NVIDIA Driver causes system instability and BSOD in Lenovo Y510P

Exact same thing has happened to me with a Lenovo Y410p. I did a Windows 10 update yesterday and updated my drivers including my Nvidia driver and since then I have gotten three KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE BSOD when running graphic intensive applications like Photoshop or Illustrator. Today I did a fresh install of Windows to see if it fixed the problem and as soon as I tried launching a game I got the elusive orange screen of death with the same error.

Hello, Last week i received my Y510P from a reseller here in Lithuania, and ran into a *slight* problem.When playing more demanding games (though i wouldnt call borderlands 2 a very demanding game), the screen freezes and the sound hangs. Occasionally the display would turn pitch black (sometimes the drivers just reset with screen backlight still on). I checked memory, sshd, cpus and main gpus for errors, but none were found. I have no idea how to test the ultrabay though... Temps are pretty high, but definetly not critical. CPU runs below 85c under load, main gpu runs at around 75c, only ultrabay runs hotter, but i've seen people saying that theirs run above 95c and it still works fine. Mine usually crashes when it reaches 91-93c. It reaches those temps in about 30-60 minutes, steadily heating up.  I tried removing and re inserting, but it didnt have any effect. Im stumped. Sorry for rambling on so long. I hope somebody can help me pinpoint the problem, and maybe help fix it. Thanks. System specs:Win 8.1 proIntel core I7 4700MQ 2.4ghzNvidia GT 755m SLI8GB ram1TB+8gb SSHDAll drivers are up to date.

Hello whoever reads this call for help.
Since some time I have two reoccuring errors that just wont stop annoying me.
1. From time to time the screens turns black and I get the message that the Nvidia Kernel mode driver 344.65 crashed and was restarted. 
This problem occured first. It happens sometimes when I am playing games, but not everytime. Sometimes it even crashes when I am just browsing the internet (less then 5 tabs) and run (as far as I know) no other programs.
Some users seem to have that problem, but the forums of Nvidia seem to remain without attention from the developers site.
2. Nvidias NvOAWrapperCache.exe is apparently not compatible with the 64 bit version of Windows and can't start/ run (so the error message).
This keeps popping up whenever I do something. If I don't close the error text, apparently nothing happens. 
I was not able to find a lot about this problem, but finally I found a thread on your forum where fireman4it apparently solved a similar problem. Unfortunatly I was not able to follow his way to solve the problem because FRST64 obviously gave me a different log. But since I am not sure, if this is the right thing for me to do in the first place, I want to ask if someone here could please find the time to try to help me and tell me what I could do.

I'm experiencing this when running different Adobe applications and sometimes just randomly it will occur. I've seen this problem posted by many on the web and haven't found a successful solution for me. I've rolled back my driver to the earlier 347.88 version because some were saying that fixed the problem for them, but I'm still experiencing the display driver "crash".

I haven't ever seen this before and I've had my NVIDIA 760 for a couple years now but I recently upgraded my MoBo to the new MSI Z170A. Then it started immediately. From here I'm not real sure how to troubleshoot the issue. I've also seen some suggesting that it may be a problem with my power supply, but I never ran into any issues before.

"Unable to recover from a kernel exception. The application must close."

Did you clean install windows when you swapped boards?

Next the cx line from corsair is not intended for any type of stressful use. It is for a basic build ONLY. Even corsair says it is only for a basic build;

Since you have a marginal pw supply [for use with a high end video card] Have you checked your voltages; specifically the 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values? If not, do so.
I never use msi boards so I am not sure if any monitoring software is available on the support page. If there is, download and install the monitoring software. Post the voltages here.

I have a big problem with my samsung rv720-s02nl notebook.
Since I have reinstalled windows 7 I was getting a lot of errors.
When clean install and all the drivers were updated I got random screen freezes. I had to press the power button until the system was powered down.
The message said Nvidia driver stopped responding and has recovered(dutch).
I tried to use the old drivers (straight from the samsung support site) but they also didn't help.

I tried this "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" error in Windows 7 or Windows Vista but that didn't stop the problem, but it resolved the bsods(screen freezes) but i still get error messages about the nvidia driver has stoped working and didn't respond. And still sometimes the computer freezes.

Hopefully you can help me with this.
Sorry for my English, i'm Dutch.

I installed Blue screen viewer and it said the problems were caused by dxgkrnl.sys driver. I searched on google but I found no valuable solutions.

Whenever I play Skyrim or Fallout 4, my graphics driver crashes and an error shows up saying the kernel has stopped working. This only occurs when playing those 2 games. I play CSGO for 3-4 hours straight and the computer never crashes, but when I play those 2, the computer crashes. The crashes only occur when entering or exiting a building or fast travelling. Sometimes, the game crashes mid game, but very rare.

Updating drivers made it worse as it crashed even more.

Hello everyone
I recently installed windows 7 ultimate and i have some serious issues with it.
at first when i installed it, and it booted for the first time into windows i got the BSOD everytime, only way i got passed it was to boot up with driver certification disabled. i was finally able to boot into windows 7.
First thing i noticed was that everything responded very slow, if i clicked the start button it took up to 5 seconds for it to respond. still everything acts very slow.
so after a while i got the error "display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver 195.39 stopped responding and has recovered succesfully"
so my screen starts to flicker black, and i get the BSOD once in a while.
I can't run the performance test because my system freezes up.
i tried upgrading/downgrading nvidia drivers, installed direct x disable aero and so on
ive done alot of research on the web but i can't find any solutions to it.

Hello everyone! I tried posting this in the graphics card forum, but haven't had any responses so I thought I would try here seeing as how it may be a driver issue.
I've been having an issue with my GPU recently, and I'm at an absolute stand still as to what the issue could be. I'm using a custom build, and here are some of the specs:

Power Supply - Corsair 650TX V2
CPU - Intel i7-3770K
GPU - NVIDIA Geforce GTX 670
Motherboard - ASUS P8Z77-V
RAM - 16GB G.Skill DDR3 1600

Now here is my issue.
Whenever I try to launch certain programs and games such as BF 3/4, Dead Space 3, Photoshop CS6, and Sony Vegas 12, they will attempt to start, freeze, and then my display on both monitors will go black for two seconds and return to normal. I'm then greeted by a friendly little message in the corner that says:
"Display driver stopped responding and has recovered
Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version (whatever driver version I have at the time) stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

This is frustrating not being able to use these programs which I used to use on a daily basis, and play many many games. I posted about it several times on the NVIDIA forums, and have been unable to find an answer to my problem. But after doing a little (LOT) of research, I came to the conclusion that it could be one of two things.
1) It has something to do with "graphics hardware acceleration"
2) My GPU isn't getting enough power.

For the past couple of weeks I have been receiving a crash on and off, mostly while browsing, my screen will go black and then come back on a short time later with the error "Nvidia Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Recovered"

From a bit of searching and past experiences, I have found that this is apparently a long lasting problem that few people have been able to fix, most people seem to say it is an Nvidia driver issue, because of this I didn't think much of it.

However today while playing multiple games, I have received another crash I haven't received before:
My screen goes black for a bit, before coming back on and then displaying the crash shown, followed by an error to say that the game I was playing at the time has stopped working.

Today Is the first time I have seen this crash, but the crash has occurred at least 4 times today.

As mentioned I wasn't too worried about the first crash I was receiving but after receiving this new crash today (unable to recover from a kernel exception) I am a bit more worried that maybe my GPU is starting to fail.

I am currently running the latest Nvidia drivers for my GPU and running Windows 10 64-bit, any help on what may be causing these crashes or any tests I could do to help get to the bottom of what may be causing these crashes would be greatly appreciated.

Im not the best at GPU troubleshooting so even with a program I don't know what to look for other than temperature.

thanks in advance,

Changing settings in the Nvidia configuration window.

Since a week i got a new laptop from MSI (model GS70). I already installed some programs like AutoCAD, Office and so on for college. But i also installed a few games like Diablo 3 and Hearthstone.

But for some reason my laptop keep crashing when i'm trying to play hearthstone which is in my opinion not a heavy game to run. So when i try to launch i often notice that the noice is verry weird, the display is flashing and i got a pop-u that says: "Nvidia Kernel Mode Driver has stopped responding and has recovered". Mostly i have to end the task in the task manager. But later today when i tried to launch it my laptop just froze up and moments later i got a BSOD 'dpc watchdog violation' caused by driver NtosKrnl.exe. However the akward thing is that i can run diablo 3 with no problems what so ever. I have not been able to test other games yet, but so far it only happens with Hearthstone.

My Nvidia drivers are up-to-date (355.82). So i'm not sure what the problem here is.

EDIT: Since i found it very strange it only happend in Hearthstone, i also installed Heroes of the storm. At first it worked fine, but once i got in the load screen, the noice was choppy, screen flashes and moments later i got a BSOD.

( Realized I had posted in the wrong section. I apologize. :\ )

Hey, all. Before you go on and give me the normal solutions to this issue, such as hardware monitoring software, overclocking and setting the NVIDIA Driver to High-Performance, I wish to explain my scenario, and that a lot of these solutions did not work out yet. I think this is more of a dying GPU problem.

About a few months ago, I updated the drivers for my NVIDIA 555m following a few low-FPS issues ( About 30 - 20 FPS in recent games ), thinking that a new driver would help fix the hiccups in gameplay ( I have 6 GBs of RAM, an Intel i5 quad-core processor, and a 64-bit Windows 7 ). Needless to say, this fixed the FPS on my games, at least to a manageable speed, so I was happy with the move.

However, after a few days with this update, I started to notice problems. On occasion, the NVIDIA kernel mode driver would stop working, and cause Windows 7 to reset the graphics card driver. At first, I didn't pay attention to it, since it only happened once or twice per day, and nothing else occurred afterwards. However, that was my mistake - By not investigating the issue further, the problem only grew. Soon, the issues started happening frequently, and led to BSODs where Nvlddmkm.sys was the fault, with the computer saying the attempt to restart the service ultimately failed.

I have since been using the internal Intel HD Graphics, which works well on most of my games with max settings, except for games like ... Read more

Hello, and thanks for viewing this thread. A few days ago, Windows XP (Home) started giving me trouble when I booted my computer. Sometimes, it would just hang forever on the launch screen, and sometimes, it would briefly flash a "Kernel Mode Exception Not Handled" blue screen before instantly restarting the computer. I was able to successfully boot into Windows a few times, but about 20 minutes later the screen would become scrambled suddenly and the computer would inevitably lock up.

I researched this issue some and found it to be related to driver errors. I piddled around in safe mode for a while and tried to figure things out, but I decided it would be easier to just do a fresh install of Windows since I had reformatted a little over a month earlier and had very little to back up. After doing a fresh install, I was reinstalling my drivers, and the same Nvidia display drivers that I've used since I built this computer 3 years ago started causing the same problem I was having before. I booted into safe mode and uninstalled them, and the problem was fixed. Then, I tried installing a newer version of the drivers, and the same problem happened.

Since I bought this computer, this error has never occurred, so I would be grateful if anyone here could shed some light on what might be going on. Thanks in advance!

In view of the above have you now on this new install installed the motherboard drivers - chipset etc and all updates, especially SP3.

If necessary - disable restart on failure and post the full Error and parameters.

May find that Who crashed will supply the analysis of the minidump if you have one.

Hi! Every time I start a game that uses the Nvidia 940m graphics card in my Yoga 700 with Windows 10, the 'Nvidia Windows kernel mode driver' crashes after a while. The fan then is at maximum and the Yoga shuts down shortly thereafter. I already installed the Intel and Nvidia graphic drivers from the Lenovo support website and tried some tricks found on the web (card always at maximum power etc.), but nothing really helps. The solution center doesn't find any problems with the nvidia card. Support says, the problem is known and they are hoping for Windows Redstone and a better nvidia driver... Anyone else here has this problem? And found a solution??Could it help to update the chipset driver and all the other drivers from the support website too? Thanx in advance,DerHuette

I pre-ordered Fallout 4, probably my most anticipated release yet, and I was devastated when this crash started happening. Just like my problem in Mortal Kombat X the game is utterly unplayable. This is one of the most frustrating things I have ever encountered
with a computer. Both of these releases I have specifically purchased because they are among my favorite game series and I can't play them at all.

I have a .dmp file, a dxdiag, an msinfo32 and a GPU-Z log. I can tell you right now that this is not a problem with drivers, BIOS updates, GPU temps or power consumption (at least from what MSI Afterburner graphs say) or the in-game graphics being to high.
I've done just about everything that is within my knowledge and competency. I'll take as many ideas as I can.

I did upgrade to Windows 10 during the time when Mortal Kombat X was experiencing this crash. I thought it would fix it but the problem remained despite the complete reformatting of my hard drive.

Good evening all. I am hoping to find some help for my question below. I have searched the forums here for similar issues but nothing I have tried thus far has worked.

I get a black screen for about 5 seconds and then the screen recovers. Sometimes it happens 3-4 times a game (League of Legends, Skyrim) and sometimes not at all. During that time, if I alt tab, I can see this message once the screen recovers, "nvidia windows kernel mode driver version 301.42 stopped responding and has recovered."

I have a Geforce GTX 260 with Nvidia 301.42 drivers and Windows 7 64bit (full specs are in my details). My motherboard is running updated drivers. I have tried both the 294 and 285 drivers and still have the issue with both. My GPU temp is 64C which doesn't seem to be too hot (but maybe?)

So far, I've read through a lot of forum posts and tried numerous different things, including; low video settings, disabling all visual upgrades from Windows 7, selecting the video card in 3D settings in Nvidia control panel, and numerous other things.

Please someone help!

A:Nvidia windows kernel mode driver version 301.42 stopped responding

Hello and welcome to the forums Bruntz!

64 C at load is normal for that graphics card.

Is your GTX 260 overclocked? Set it to default clocks and try again.

Try using these latest beta drivers from NVIDIA for your graphics card:-

Hi, my problem is that when i play games like Call of Duty and WoW my pc sucks for a bit and comes to normal. It shows "Nvidia kernel mode driver stopped responding...." but in games such as League of Legends it runs normal. I ve changed the Hard Drive and CPU fan and 4 giga ram recently. The Processor : Intel 2 Duo E4600 2.40ghz. So what can i do..?

A:PC black screen and back (lockup). Nvidia kernel mode driver stopped

Bottleneck is probably combo of your CPU, [what video?] and motherboard chipset. [southbridge/northbridge which effects it all]

I'd try upgrading the chipset drivers and BIOS of your motherboard, found on your motherboard's web site, FIRST.

That CPU is a bit low for gaming, LoL is probably well optimized code and lower requirements as a result.

Not knowing all your hardware.... Fill in the specs, you can run msinfo32.exe from Start | search box and get the info there. Video card will be listed under Components | Display.

Guessing without it, that you could use a video card and CPU upgrade, that CPU is circa 4Q/'07 so it has seen better days, whole system replacement is probably in order, to catch up to 2013 gaming.

Looking on newegg just for an idea, this is the only LGA775 slot CPU (same slot type as a E4600) even available, and it's a refurb: (plus no guarantee your motherboard supports it, without looking it up.)

If your motherboard even has a PCI Express x16 slot, what version is it, 1.0/1.1/2.0? will likely limit a video card choice, also, let alone the PSU in it.

Hello hello.

I getting on the brinck of crying here. ."

I have a brand new build computer and had the Windows RC installed when i started to get BSOD / nvlddmkm.sys

I have sense installed a genuine Win7 after a lovely reminder from Microsoft.
With the new install i don't get a BSOD, but i do get the "Display Driver Nvidia Windows Kernel Mode Driver Version (what ever version of Nvidia driver u have installed) stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

It only happens in games, and i have tried a lot of stuff to get it to work so i can have fun with the new gear. But just can't get a solution. Anyone here who has a experience with this problem and know possible solutions?

I have monitored the TEMP of the GPU but it does not matter if the temp is 55 or 70 c when it crashes.

I was working with an audio recording software just now when I faced this error (in the subject line). The screen blacked for 10 seconds or so and then came back.

Also, I faced similar errors when I was using Power Point and a screen recorder software but the error was a bit different nvlkdm has stopped working. Also, I had just installed IE 9 beta (hardware acceleration), opened the first site and the system crashed and I had to do a hard reboot and unistall IE 9 to save my life from such errors again. The errors are just random. The nVidia drivers are downloaded the official nVidia and are the latest available for my DELL XPS M1530 with 8600M GT. (OS Win 7 Ultimate 32bit)

I also got two BSOD's at different time with a message saying:
"Unable to reset the display. A problem occured with the display driver driver"
I noted this error code on the blue screen

There are no Minidumps being formed in Windows/Minidump (I just enabled them now), so I wasn't able to post any of them :-|

However, I perfomed the stability test with Furmark for my grpahics acrd and the display started flickering with dots. Earlier when I installed the driver and had the performed the stability, it had ran absolutely fine for more than 20 min.

"display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver version 332.21 stopped responding and has recovered"

Hello and thanks in advance for your help.

I am using a Dell XPS 8300 computer with the following specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1
64 Bit OS
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40 GHz
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Dell has attempted to help me with this problem. Prior to having this error pop up on my screen the computer would just have a blank screen at start up after the dell logo then the windows logo appeared. They had me run the computer in safe mode with networking and they have uninstalled all drivers and reinstalled them, they ran CCleaner and fixed all registry errors/cleaned out temporary files, they installed and ran Windows Security Essentials and got rid of any malware. Finally, they decided to send me a new graphics card. They had a technician come install the new card and run a diagnostic test and update all drivers. Everything seemed to be fine but when I opened a game on the system that uses the more intense graphics, the screen went blank again. I have not played any games since but while browsing the internet at random times, I get the error message from the title of this post. The screen will go blank for a few seconds then reappear with that message. I have tried to do some research and have found that the error is probably something called TDR. However, I am not an expert and I am clueless. Please l... Read more

I just bought a new desktop and within the first hour I had an error message that said, "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered. Display driver NVIDIA kernel mode driver version 186.75 stopped responding and has successfully restored". What the heck is this? Could this be related to Windows 7 and would anyone happen to have any suggestions? What happens is the screen goes black for about two seconds then appears with the above error message on the task bar. This happens very randomly, and maybe three to six times a day (had my computer for about two weeks). Also, two times now it has gone black and not come back! Just a little frustrated to say the least. Thank you anyone!

Hi, I need help with crashing due to kernel drivers. This problem started on Windows 8, and I upgraded to Windows 10, and is still crashing. I have done many things to attempt to fix this problem, such as using DDR to uninstall drivers, rolling back old drivers etc., and none of this has worked. I have gone into event manager and the one thing that seems to always occur is:"The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device ROOT\WPD\0000." at startup. While I am experienced with computers, I have no idea how to fix this. So if anybody knows how to fix this, can you please tell me? Also, if anyone needs pictures of the crashed scree, debug info, etc. I will gladly provide it. Thanks!

Occasionally, the computer will freeze up and make the "dieing" clicking noise, with the hard drive working furiously. Usually, I preform a hard reset, but on two occasions, I let the computer run, and I recieved similar blue screens of death, with the hard drive access light solid.

The first:

*** STOP: 0x0000007A(0xC03E11F0,0xC000000E,0xF847CC22,0x009A2860)

*** ftdisk.sys-Address F85F1642 base at F85E7000, DateStamp 3b7d8419
Beginning dump of physical memory.

On the next occasion, I was trying to replicate the error after a day of no trouble, and did so by entering standby mode, then starting the computer back up. Surprisingly, I got this after saving a file(which, btw, didn't save)

*** STOP: 0x00000077(0xC000000E,0xC000000E,0x00000000,0x009520000)

Recently my old laptop has been playing up, I don't use it but my parents do. So, the laptop was infected with the Antivirus 2009 after surfing the web and I removed it using malwarebytes program. Then shortly after the laptop would show a blue screen, displaying "KERNEL STACK INPAGE ERROR" and then reboot.

After the reboot, my laptop seemed to run fine, I downloaded AVG antivirus software to check if there was a boot sector virus (?) and after running the laptop for about 30 minutes, it showed the blue screen again and reboots. This kept on occuring.

Then I tried to reformat the laptop. The first time I tried to format it as FAT32, it got to about 60% before rebooting. The second time I managed to get past the formatting (FAT32 [quick])and I got onto the part of installing windows. About 20 minutes into the installation. A stop error appeared "STOP C0000218 Unknown Hard Error". Could the hard disk be corrupt?

Any ideas on what I can do to savage the laptop?

I have the:
System Recovery CD (windows xp home edition)
System Software CD

Brand: Samsung
System: Microsoft Windows XP Home
CPU: Intel 2.4GHz Pentium 4 Processor
Memory: 256MB 133MHz SDRAM

This is generally a registry corruption issue. There is a technically complicated method of recovery, but if the drive is really bad you are just going to get it again.

Before replacing the drive, and since you have already done a clean install just prior --you might do another, but try removing and reseating the drive first.

Hey guys, so, im getting the ye ol' Kernel 43; long story short, i was getting constant BSOD because of bad timings on my rams, i fixed that by enabling DOCP on my motherboard and while it "overclocked" my ram, it did a mini auto overclock on my CPU, a 4 year old Phenom II BE 960T, while it was running slightly hotter, it wasnt anything critical, well the BSOD stopped...till i started getting this kernel; back then it was 2 weeks apart from each error sometimes even a week, i thought i fixed that, by removing the CPU overclock and manually setting my rams. But last night, i got a new kernel, 1 month and 7 days later.

I dont really know what else to do, is the CPU dieing? is it getting fried? the PSU is brand new and its a EVGA 600B Certified. I guess, here is the log

Well i'm new here and i would like to say one thing and if this is the wrong palce to post this than please moves this anyway I don't know squat about computers. Recently i have had this message that pops up every time i turn on my pc. The error message says," nt kernel error 1256......." I can't remember more but it has something to do with the system registy.
It slows my computer down alot and causes many crashes of the computer and lots of other bad stuff. I can't even use my computer to its full extent. I'm using a sony vaio windows xp.
Its kinda old like 7 years old but i really don't have the cash as of now to get a new one. If some stuff is need to buy like programs or w/e i'm down with that but they gotta be purchasable from the store because i don't trust internet. I've been scammed many times by people saying they can fix my computer with this and that and these kinda programs saying all i gotta do i pay 30$. I will buy stuff from store if i need to but it has be like under 50$ cause my dad is like MEGA cheap. I really need help and will update with more details of the problem when it pops up again( it pops up every now and then) I also have no idea what i did.

A:Nt kernel error

Update: Well the error also seems to mention a kernel debugger and some more numbers. I've fixed it once but it comes back in about a week or so. I don't remember how i fixed it though

Hey guys, I have a dell inspiron 1545, windows 7 64 bit, 18 months old, it recently crashed. I was playing music on Grooveshark when it started clicking loudly, it then went to a blue screen which said something about a kernel but it disappeared so fast I couldn't read it properly. Then it tried to reboot but it froze so I turned it of manually with the power button left it for a few minutes and turned on. It has been running normally ever since apart from a faint internal clicking that I had not noticed prior to the blue screen. Please help and if you could keep it simple that would be good because I'm not that computer savvy, thanks

A:Kernel Error (41)

Merely an intuitive accessment, but the fact that the problem occurs during games, and with the color changes, makes me wonder how you installed the video card and driver. Boot into Safe Mode, open the Device Manager and uninstall the display adapter. Select Show Hidden Devices...just in case there is a ghost of the previous video card (if there is, delete it), run Driver Sweeper to remove any remanents of the driver itself. Do not touch anything that says VGA, reboot to Safe Mode and reinstall the driver.

I apparently lost my hard drive on my Dell Inspiron 2650, and this message below came up. There is a similar message on the threads listed however, the stop code is different on mine. Also, after this the screen says "no operating system found" When I try to install the system again it says no hard drive found.
I have replaced the hardrive once with another 20 gig from ebay of the same type and model number and now this one has done the same thing within 20 days.

I am not a computer mechanic and have limited knowledge of computers.
Can anyone help please?


A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to.


If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen then restart your computer. If this screen appears again then follow these steps.

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properlly installed. If this is a new installation ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need

If the problem continues disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as cacheing and shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer and press F8 and select Advance Startup options and then select safe mode.

Hi all,

I bought a new computer a month ago, and am having BSOD each day. It's a Kernel Security Check Failure, and when i look in the event watcher, i can see a kernel-power critical error.


Thanks for your help !

A:BSOD kernel security check failure - kernel power problem ?

Please uninstall Gigabyte software, it is known for causing bluescreens and uses a few old drivers.

Please change the system language to english, this helps me understanding the files as I can't understand french.

Diagnostic Test


Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
Please create a restore point.
Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.

Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.

Hello. I'm new here and I need your help. Lately just after I updated my Windows 8.1 all of the sudden my PC started shutting down for no reason and I had to restart it. It often occurs during the morning hours, but it also occurs during the evening hours, too. It's a Kernel Power error with Event ID 41, Version 3, Level 1, Task 63.

Here's the zip file and text document attachments I made which contains more information about what's going on with my PC.

Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A:Kernel Power Error ID 41

EventID 41 is simply Windows' way of saying it doesn't know why it was shut down. Investigation of other error reporting mechanisms, logs, reports, etc will help. It can be caused by BSOD's, overheating or other hardware problems, or even shutting the computer down by holding the power button.

Let's start with this:

Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog))
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here: Windows Kernel event ID 41 error "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first" in Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2

Hey everyone,

This is my first time posting here, but I have lurked around and read all the threads I could find in regards to this error. I know it's a general error, but I plan to provide as much information as I can.

For the past 4 months, my desktop has been shutting down during games. It doesn't matter what the settings are on, but it simply shuts off and reboots without any warning.

This happens approximately 45 to 80 minutes into a session.

I have recently replaced/tested:

Replaced Motherboard
Replaced PSU (3 times)
Replaced Graphics card
Reinstalled OS twice
Cleaned the entire case
Re-applied thermal goo on processor
Checked the fans, and made sure they worked
Opened my case and placed a fan on the side to create circulation
Replaced ram
Ran memtest on new ram, no errors

I have no clue what steps I should take next, and I can only assume thus far that I either have another faulty PSU or my processor is starting to go.

I have attached my system information as well as my system tempuratures/volts.

Please let me know if there's anything else that would be helpful.

So im not sure whats going on really, perhaps a flash problem or something?

If dust is not the reason it may be your cooling is not efficient enough after buying a new graphics adapter for instance. Also check if your power adapter has enough capacity.

This is the third time that this has happened so I'm in need of some help.

It always happens when I'm scanning my laptop with AVG or SAS. I would get the blue screen of death saying there's a bad sector and it has something to do with the kernel fault checker data or something like that but Windows fixed it. So then I try the chkdsk /f thing and reboot again so I think everything is fixed. The error doesn't happen consecutive times but enough to know there's a problem.

Hi, a couple of days ago I installed a file downloader. Since yesterday if I try to copy/rar/transfer some specific subfolders in the downloaded file directory my pc crashes with the kernel inpage error. Maybe is caused by the overloaded Hdd but it's from about two years that I have 3-4 GB free.
Thanks in advance

A:Kernel Inpage error

Kernel data inpage error = stop 0x7A.

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup program before you upload another zip.

This started happening out of nowhere. At first it happened only when playing certain games now it happens quite frequently. I've tried disabling drivers, formatting and reinstalling windows, updating drivers, running torture tests etc.

PS : When computer reboots, 2 lights appear in the graphic card. Have to manually shut down and wait few min to start again.(temperature about 50C, processor temp 30-40C

A:Kernel-Power 41 (63) Error

2 primary issues with Asus P5 mobo's that I've seen:
- ASACPI.sys driver dated from 2004 or 2005 - must be updated to the 2009 version
- memory issues - check both the Asus website and the memory manufacturer's website for the proper timings/settings/voltages for your RAM (don't use Auto).

Beyond that, please provide the info described in this post:

I have recently purchased a custom built gaming computer from some friends. It's great and all, but every week or two it blue screens and comes up with this Kernel-Power ID 41 error in the event viewer every time. Lately it has been doing this more and more and sometimes I lose unsaved data. It's pretty irritating. It runs on Windows 7 64 bit... if that is even relevant to anything at all. Please help and thanks if you do.

Hey guys,

I've bought a PC in February 2010, I must say it's a wonderful thing!

However... For some reason when I play YouTube movies in fullscreen or play (heavy) games. My computer stops responding, the screen turns black and it looks like something is trying to fix the display all the time. But it doesn't succeed.
Now I really want to know what's going on, I've seen a lot of topics about this problem but none of them really seemed helpful to me.
The only thing I get out of this is when I start op the Event Viewer, I only see 41 Kernel-Power.

My PC Specs:

Intel Core i5, 2,66Ghz
Sapphire ATI Radeon HD5770
Gigabyte P55-UD3R Motherboard
OCZ 2x2GB DDR3 PC10666 CL7.0 Platinum
Cooler Master CM620

Now that's pretty much it, if you guys could help me out please do! Thank you!

I have a problem. After upgrading from windows 8.1 to 10, when laptop goes to sleep mode, it won't turn on anymore. If I disable driver signature enforcement it starts normally.
What could be wrong?
Error file is in attachment. Thank's in advance!

A:Kernel power error 41

A driver( hopefully the latest driver you self installed) was a unsigned driver.
What you could try is.
Uninstall this driver.
Then boot into windows with disable driver signature enforcement and reinstall this (unsigned) driver.
And hopefully your computer when goes to sleep mode turn on normally.

My computer started crashing 2 months ago while I was saving a game I was playing. This only happened at first while saving, eventually the save game file corrupted. The blue screen stated: Kernel Data Inpage Error and the Tech Info was- Stop 0x0000007A (0xc02017F8, 0xC000000E, 0x805FEF75, 0x05612860). The computer started getting slower and wouldn't save the game at all and would display the same Kernel data inpage error screen (with perhaps different tech info) when I tried to Defrag.

Eventually the performance got worse and the blue screen crashes more frequent regardless of what I was doing on the computer (like Word)- I generally noticed though that saving something would generally cause a Kernel Data Inpage error even after I uninstalled the game where the problems started. The computer ran its own check on start up because it stated there was a consistency problem. I did run a check disk and it did note some bad sectors. I did disable secondary caching and that helped but not for long. I couldn't disable caching all together as it ran way too slow.

Now the computer won't even boot XP regardless of safe mode or not. The blue screen is that there is a problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage to my computer. Stop 0x00000024 (0x001901FF, 0x812F74F0, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000). The real problems started around the time I reinstalled XP but I can't remember if the first crash was before or after that.

Hey everyone,

I have a problem. This has been happening for generally a long time since I got my PC over a year ago. Generally, what usually happens is when I leave my computer on for a long time, these things tend to happen

1) Computer gives BSOD with no specific error
2) Screen goes blue and I touch mouse and everything is back to normal
3) Screen goes blue and I touch my mouse but certain files are missing and freezing. Ex. When I click Chrome it would say file does not exist or file is no longer available. Try to click but nothing happens.

After these things would happen, I would usually just restart and it would be fine. These events have happened alot but I generally ignored them and just kept on restarting my computer when it happened.

More recently, I turned on my computer, logged in, and after a couple of minutes it would randomly freeze my screen and then after a while a BSOD would show up saying "Kernel Error" Or something along those lines. This kept on happening for a while now and I didn't think I would be able to get back on my computer. I just restarted it now and it worked, as of now II'm typing this hoping it doesn't happen again.

My Windows 7 . . .
- x86
- Full Retail = you purchased it from retailer

- What is the age of system (hardware)?
nearly 3 years old
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?)
around 6 months old

I have also attached the required health scan files to be evaluated.
Before this thread, i'd posted that...;

My laptop always crashes, totally randomly, and I highly doubt its due to me doing any heavy multitask. It does it usually when I use Bittorrent and iTunes together.

I thought it could be a problem with the RAM as I only have 1GB with Windows 7, so I upgraded to 2GB, although it runs much smoother now, it still crashes.

I've checked the Windows Event Viewer, and it crashes due to Event 41, Kernel-Power; (The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.)

Right before this happens, I get 2 other errors, Event ID 6008 Source; EventLog (The previous system shutdown at 4:56:25 PM on ‎10/‎14/‎2010 was unexpected.)

....and Event ID 4 Source;spdt (Driver detected an internal error in its data structures for .)

These 2 errors NEARLY ALWAYS come up before it crashes with the Kernel-Power error. Although sometimes its only Event ID 4.

I've tried updating the wireless adapter driver with no luck.

Any suggestions pleaseeeeeee?

Try using a genuine Windows 7 Installation - a DELL OEM licence on retail motherboard such as yours can only be 'genuine' if enabled using a hackers activation exploit.

You won't receive further help until you can demonstrate you use genuine Wihdows 7. That will also minimise the problems you are experiencing.

Hey all,

I have a gateway GT5662 (, running Windows 7 (upgraded from vista). While I was running vista, and even now, I keep getting Kernel Power errors. They're all the same: Source is Kernel-Power, Event ID is 41, Task category is (63). The computer sometimes reboots spontaneously, sometimes gives me wavy lines and then a BSOD, sometimes shuts down and refuses to start until I turn off the power and wait for a while. It seems to occur randomly, with neither rhyme nor reason. I did by a Back-UPS CS, thinking that it was brownouting. That helped for a little bit, but it's started doing it again--12 times in the last week. I have hit the forums, and the tips seem to be all over the board--some people say it's the audio drivers, others say it's a graphics issues, still others say it's a power guy even said his case was shorting things out! Any help will be much appreciated, and if you need any more information, please don't hesitate to ask.

I was just watching a video, when the computer froze and then I got the blue screen. This is the 2nd time it happened.

Then when I restarted, I kept getting 'Not responding' when I tried to open Firefox, chrome or any other program. Even Ctrl-Alt-Del was not working. All the tasks were 'Not responding'

Whats wrong with my computer?

That sounds like more of a virus problem to me. Can you get network activity in safe mode with networking?

Not having access to the task manager is a tale sign of a virus infestation.
