CPU constantly running at 50% at random times

Q: CPU constantly running at 50% at random times

New to these forums, so forgive me if I don't know all the formalities.

At random times all of my computer's actions take exceptionally longer than normal; boot up takes 3 or so minutes, a crackling noise and freezing occur when playing games/videos and the task manager shows a 50% CPU usage, even when nothing is going on. I regularly scan with MalwareBytes and avast!.

On a previous occasion, I removed the case cover and booted up and everything was fine, but I think it might have just been a fluke. For the sake of fixing this problem however, let's not rule out overheating.

Below is a HijackThis log.

A: CPU constantly running at 50% at random times

SpeedFan is also showing one of the CPUs running at 100% and the other running normally (basically 50%), so is something wrong with that one CPU?

Edit: Did a full system MalwareBytes scan and nothing came up. Running a scan with avast! and the speed of the scan just gets slower and slower (started at 50 mb/sec now at 20 mb/sec).

My computer has been freezing for a while and I haven't thought anything of it until recently when it started to freeze multiple times a day. Sometimes I would be doing something and other times I wouldn't be doing anything and it would just freeze. I've searched but I don't know what the problem is. All I know is that the light that blinks orange whenever I'm doing something goes away. Please help I'd really appreciate it. Thank you!
 

A:Computer freezing constantly random times

The very first issue can be that your system is running beyond it's hardware specifications. This occurs when getting too numerous programs running at the same time. If the amount of RAM in your system cannot handle it then your computer will freeze. The simple solution for this is to run fewer programs or buy additional RAM.

Some folks ask - what if windows 7 crashes when I only run a particular program? In this case you might need to update your drivers or system. Often times compatibility issues could cause your computer to freeze up. You can check the Microsoft Windows website for the latest updates.

If windows 7 freezes at random, then this problem should be relates to the registry. When the Windows registry is full of errors it can stop your system from properly running. The registry contains the information of your computer which is used to communicate between the OS, software, and hardware devices. When the registry becomes congested with errors, the communication procedure breaks down.

The recommended solution for this sort of Windows 7 freezing would be to clean the registry of corrupt files and various errors. Not just will this prevent pc crashing, it will also speed up your system considerably.
​Also, take a look at this site for some more information:

I hope this helps!

Hey guys, recently, my computer has been freezing at completely random times during the day and always requires a hard reset to fix the problem (temporarily). I have no idea what is wrong, I have not really installed any new hardware or devices, except my iPod Touch I got around 2 weeks ago and my router I got around 3 weeks ago, but I have no idea if they are causing the problem because the freezing has been going on for around 5 days now...

My computer freezes up randomly. I never know when it is going to freeze. Usually everything freezes in an instant. Occasionally I can 'see it coming' because my cursor freezes for a second, then moves and then freezes again permanently.

I tried the rootrepeal but it would not load - it gave me an error message "FOPS - DeviceIoControl Error - Code: 0x0000024 Extended info (0x000000d0)
Under details it showed:
FOPS - DeviceIoControl Error - Code: 0x0000024 Extended info (0x000000d0)
DeviceIoControl Error = 0xie7 or maybe 1e7?

Hi

I'm currently running Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3.

Currently using firefox 3.5.5. On random occasions ,random pages will randomly not load with the loading circle spinning but nothing happening. When I click refresh, the page might load or might not. Sometimes i have to end up closing the browser and that seems to fix the problem for some time. The problem will randomly occur again shortly after.

For Msn, i have version Windows live Messenger 2009. On random occasions, i will not receive or my messages will not be sent out. The problem will go away and come back consistently.

I have shaw high speed internet directly connected to the modem. I tried calling them and letting them take a look into my computer through the internet. When they were searching theought, the problem did not occur at that moment, therefor i couldn't not prove that i have a problem.

I tried scanning my computer with Avira AntiVir Personal- Free version and Malwarebytes' Anit-Malware Free version all uptodate, but nothing gets picked up.

This problem started to occur 2-3 weeks ago, and i could not occur what i did during that time.

Thanks for your time.

Since Friday my screen goes completely black at random times, and the PC is still running. Fans stay at the speeds they were, and windows is also still running from what I can tell. The screen goes black for 2-5 seconds and then it returns to normal. This happens about 3-4 times a day. First time happened while I was playing Far Cry 4, then a while after when I was watching a video on YouTube. The monitor does not turn off, rather the screen renders black over the entire screen. . GPU has been fine during gaming sessions and video-watching
I tested with two different monitors and it's not a monitor problem since it happens in both of them. I also ran virus and spyware scans and they came up with nothing

My toshiba laptop will seem to just randomly freeze up whenever it feels like, the periods between freezes can vary anywhere from 5 minutes to 3 or 4 hours so its completely random and it does not seem to happen when I'm doing a specific task, I can be watching a video, browsing the internet or even just using the desktop and it can do it. I've run various scans but nothing has come up and I'm almost at my wits end so any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

BSOD occurs randomly, sometimes 2-3 times a day, sometimes 2-3 times a week total. But generally always happens at least once per week. Been ongoing for over a year.

I upgraded all my RAM. I have run the MemTest86 and it reported good. The BSOD was occurring before and after that RAM upgrade.

I work in a 1 TB SQL Server constantly that resides on this machine. Heavy query use. 32 Giggadee-giggadee of RAM.

All Drivers are up-to-date that I can tell. I ran Verifier.exe as outlined, forced a BSOD, and have run the SF Diagnostic Tool and will attach that ZIP file in this thread.

Thank you in advance. If I wasn't bald already, I'd have pulled all my hair out by now.

I've reset Windows 10 Pro, uninstalled and reinstalled the game but I keep getting the crashes. Windows 10 Pro should be up to date, I have my doubts about my mouse as the manufacturer hasn't released updated drivers in some time, and the rest of my peripherals/utilities should be up to date. Thanks in advance

Three days ago my water cooling failed (got up to 77C while gaming is when I noticed the problem as my CPU should not go over 62C). I decided to install an aftermarket heatsink instead of a new water cooling system ,and add a few more fans just to make sure my whole motherboard was getting plenty of air flow. I installed a Cool Mater Hyper Plus 212 heatsink. I followed the instructions, and looked at a few installation videos on my phone just to be sure. I'm pretty positive everything was done correctly including the thermal paste as my system has not gone over 45C while gaming even playing games on Ultra settings.

I got one BSOD late last night, after about 6 hours of it being on but no other problems after that. Today however I have been having BSOD issues the entire time at random times from just 5 minutes up to 2 and a half hours between BSODs. They have ranged from: NTSF_FILE_SYSTEM, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

I have researched the errors on google all day and tried fixes for each one such as running memory diagnostic tool, deleting the old page info from memory and creating a new one, deleted all of my video drivers and reinstalled them, and I've even opened my case to make sure all my memory and cards are plugged in all the way.

These are the errors that BlueScreenView gave me:

This is my custom build computer of 4 - 5 years. The past year or so i keep getting random BSOD. There are times right after i do a windows update, the very next day my computer will crash. I am running the latest nvidia drivers, and also run windows update. Some times the error says Memory Management, or ntfs.sys, fltmgr.sys. I did a memory test and it passes. I also tested hdd for errors. I really can not take getting all of these BSOD. Right now, it is happening about 3 times per week. At times i am using my computer and other times it is at night when it is locked. I have not added anything to my computer since it was born 4 - 5 years ago. I also do not overclock or mod anything.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

Forgot to add that sometimes when my computer BSOD, i am not getting the log dump files.

Hello,
New member here and thanks in advance for looking.

I have a home built w7 Home Premium box we use almost exclusively for Windows Media Center. I started getting bsod's about a month ago and before that got distorted *pinkish* video on restart or bootup at times.

Tried using msconfig and changed settings and thought I had it but it resumed the pink screens (sometimes garbled colors i.e. squares and other shapes) so I bought a new video PCIe card, an XFX R6700. Thought this had it but it resumed the bsod's and sometimes graphic issues.

Saved our pics and such and did a clean install.
Worked fine for a couple days then back to the bsod's and pink graphics.

Having a hard time getting the crash files together for upload, new guy here so hopefully I'll get it figured out and add it. The directory created by SF_Diag is 34.1mb large and when I go to U/L size limits say nope. Pointers here maybe.

Thanks,
behoof

They say, "If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!" and this W7 box is for her TV <sigh> Help!

Hi, I have started getting BSODs twice a day at random moments on my computer in the last 4 days. I've tried to figure out the reason for the BSODs but I'm not sure.

I often get the * Hardware failure * bsod. Now I know these can be caused by a number of things, so that is why I included with this post the SF Diagnostic Tool zip attachement so you can help me figure this out.

I consider my knowledge of computers (overclocking, hardware maintenance and debugging) at a decent level, so it shouldn't take much help before we fix this. I just need someone to point me in the right direction.

Hey all. I have been getting BSODs everyday for a couple months now. At first, since the BSODs started at around the same time as I received my new motherboard and cpu (MSI PC Mate Z97 + Intel i5-4690K), I thought the BSODs were caused by this new hardware, but I am not certain as I updated drivers around the time too. At the moment the BSODs could be caused by anything.
I have:Ran memtest overnight with a successful pass.
Changed power settings to high.
Installed latest intel chipset drivers from intel's auto updater.
Installed latest BIOS.
Installed as many additional drivers from my motherboard's webpage.
Uninstalled graphics drivers (for my AMD HD 7870 GHz edition) and reinstalled.
Completely reinstalled windows by formatting by HDD and installing a fresh copy of windows on to that.

My PC specs are as follows:MSI PC Mate Z97
Intel Core i5-4690K
AMD Radeon HD 7870 Ghz Edition

I have been getting BSOD's for the last week or so. I can't read the entire screen in time when it happens but I do catch something about a hardware issue. This has happened several times while playing video games, but others when surfing the web, or just doing some typing. I've checked all of the components and they seem to be functional to the best of my knowledge.

I was getting random lock ups as well, where the entire system would freeze up, I would lose control of everything. This happened a few times when watching movies or games, and the sound would continue on as if there was nothing wrong while everything else froze and would not respond. I reinstalled windows and none of these lock ups have happened since, and I went 2 days without the BSOD but it has come back today.

The computer is as follows with a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS

Intel 980 Extreme 6 core CPU
12 GB DDR3 Ram
2 64GB Kingston SSD
1 2 TB SATA Drive
Nividia 430 GPU

I've attached the mindump file and the system report file as per the instructions and would appreciate any help on this matter. While I am by no means a computer guru or expert, I've tested everything I could and found no viruses or lack of important drivers that could cause this. I also stress tested my GPU and CPU to make sure they were not overheating, though I didnt think they were. Under full load the GPU peaked at 81C with an average running temp of 40C and the GPU was 74C at peak and 37C at standard operation level.

Hello,

I have had this problem for months now, it has finally gotten to the point where I cannot even use my internet due to the frustration of reloading a web-page 30x and have it still keep timing out. I have tried calling ISP (Road Runner TWC) , everything "looks" fine on their side. I updated to a newer modem, yet the problem still exists. I have tried just running a connection straight from modem -> pc and the problem persists. So I assume I can rule out router,nics,wireless adapters.

Hi all,

My system has been crashing consistently over the last few weeks. I'm not sure if it's a hardware issue or a software one. I've tested all my RAM sticks and received no errors.

Windows updated to anniversary edition last night and since then, the PC has crashed twice already. My system's reliability monitor is showing critical events at every crash, but I have no idea what they mean.

Any help/thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

There is a problem with my computer. When using Firefox or any other browser, I use Google and randomly whatever I click on redirects me to some bad site.

Hello. I have an operating system concern. I "think" I may be infected. When I open IE7 (I have "Easy Homepage" enabled (part of IE7 Pro) that contains 9 quick dial links to your favorite websites.) and I click on the website for Huffingtonpost.com, I get a series of infinite small windows opening one a second, each overlapping one another on my screen without end. I have to restart/reboot my system to get out of it because I cannot beat the speed to delete the windows popping up speed. The windows are all the same information. Now, this issue runs haphazardly. Sometimes I get the continuous small windows popping up and other times I do not -- totally random. I do not know what is going on? I assume malware may be the problem. I have run system scans with Kaspersky Internet Security 2009, Counterspy v.3, and SUPERAntispyware Pro (paid), to find anything. Just tracking cookies is all they find. I assume whatever this is is a bug. I have run CCleaner and checked all the options of Windows Disk Cleanup as well. I am lost for options. I have over 100 programs install on Windows Vista Ultimate. It does not take long to add on programs. I think the issue is related to IE7. I have run HijackThis v.2.02 to try to get to the bottom. I have attached the log report for someone to hopefully help me and let me know what is going on. Please reply to let me know what is going on and if you see something in the log report, please let me know. Thanks!

A:IE7 - Same Small Windows Constantly Poping Up At Times.

Sounds like malware but might just be certain bad sites your visiting doing it. You can reset IE if you think it's causing it but it will reset everything on IE. Try running a scan with Malwarebytes and Spybot, see if it catches anything.

I've been plagued by odd problems since making this custom build about a month ago, but the latest is the increasing frequency of BSODs. They never occur at load (gaming with high end specs), but often occur at shutdown (forcing a restart before I can then actually shut down). I normally boot into windows in 8-10 seconds (SSD) but the latest post-BSOD boot took about five minutes from typing my password into the login screen to where my desktop popped up. A subsequent reboot was at normal speed. The memory dumps always include the NT OS kernel, but then also some other driver (different each time), which I suspect just happens to be the one trying to run at the time of the error.

Things I've tested:
Temperatures (didn't really suspect them in the first place, but I'm running cool)
Memory (Both the native Windows test and memtest found no issues)
Hard drives (chkdsk came back clean)

All drivers are up to date, although the uploaded report might show an older version of my sound card driver, as I just reinstalled it at the behest of windows action center (which didn't make the notification go away, mind).

I'm hoping someone wiser than I can make sense of this, because it all seems so random to me. Thanks in advance to whoever that is.

Been getting this error for quite awhile now when doing random stuff. My latest crash was watching Twitch.tv & Playing CIV 5. Other times, it's just when I leave my computer on and it hasn't done anything in a while, and other times happens when I listen to music or watching a video.

Hello Wesley, welcome to SF!

There are no dumps in there. Please have a good look at the second post here:
http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

While waiting and testing for a new crash that should produce a dump, please check the following:

1. Re-seat your RAM. there is a slight diff between physical and installed and AFAIK, in your case I would not expect that. We might do a RAM test later on.

2. Fix these driver / devices issues:

HTML Code:
Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller PCI\VEN_1033&DEV_0194&SUBSYS_84131043&REV_03\4&1D7623A1&0&00E2 The drivers for this device are not installed.
PCI Simple Communications Controller PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1C3A&SUBSYS_844D1043&REV_04\3&11583659&0&B0 The drivers for this device are not installed.
Shrew Soft Virtual Adapter ROOT\VNET\0000 This device is disabled.
Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller PCI\VEN_1033&DEV_0194&SUBSYS_84131043&REV_03\4&DDEC341&0&00E1 The drivers for this device are not installed.
Go your Devices screen and either find drivers or disable these devices...
I also expect you have problems with Windows Update. Multiple errors in your logs on that. Please go to Maintenance center and make sure you install all updates. ALL?? Yes, ALL. If needed there is a good tutorial on resetting WU.

A:Random BSOD errors happening at random times

Hello, welcome to SevenForums!

I have taken a look at your provided dump files. There are tons of memory management and memory corruption errors. Before we continue, if any of your hardware is overclocked, PLEASE reset your clocks to stock for diagnostic purposes.

First off, before we continue onto memory.... in your drivers list I noticed you have sptd.sys listed, which is the driver for Daemon Tools. Please uninstall Daemon Tools from your system as it's known to cause many issues in the Windows 7 environment. Once you've done so, restart and then run DuplexSecure's sptd uninstaller to fully remove sptd.sys from your system. After you've done so, restart again.

Next, tons and tons of memory management and memory corruption errors as I've said earlier. Please read the following thread to download and install Memtest to test your memory for any bad sticks.

Hey everyone, Im new here on this forum.

I've been having this extremely frustrating problem ever since i swapped out my Motherboard for a new one. I reformatted my computer multiple times, yet my computer seems to BSOD randomly.

What happenes is that everything becomes unresponsive; cant alt+tab, cant ctrl+alt+del etc etc. everything freezes randomly... then boom, BSOD. its happened twice, with no apparent pattern.

And then, when it restarts, it tries booting but then it goes into the boot selection screen and my SSD is nowhere to be found. I have to power off then power on again for it to boot up and log in.

No DMPS in upload

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hi all, first off, thanks for reading this.

Basically, my current build is about 2-3 years old, the newest thing being my PSU (which I replaced after several issues with the GPU drivers constantly crashing, turns out it wasn't the power anyway...)

For the past few weeks, I've been having issues with it. At one point, the computer refused to start (it would power up but the k/b and mouse lights wouldn't turn on), I seem to have solved it by moving my RAM (slot 3 looks to be buggered).

I kept on getting BSODs, at random times and different messages. I could be playing, watching a movie, or even letting it sit idle, and it'd BSOD. Temps for both the CPU and GPU are fine, GPU hits about 70 and CPU tops off at roughly 40C (when stress testing).

I tried running Prime 95 + Furmark, no crash funnily enough. Done the RAM tests, 7 passes on both sticks, no issues.

The error messages I've gotten are, Bad_Pool_Header, Memory Management, System Service Exception. The most frequent one is the Memory Management one.

I'm at my wit's end here. I've updated my Mobo drivers, GPU, etc. I'm hoping that someone might be able to make heads or tails of the problem and give me an idea of what to do.

A:BSODs, Random times, random error messages.

Forgot to attach the dumps. Here are the most recent dumps.

Happens almost daily. Some days I can be using the computer heavily for 12 hours without an issue. Other days it'll crash within 10 minutes. After replacing hardware, mobo, gpu, and hdd, still having the issue, only I'm actually getting a BSOD now. Prior to this I wasn't even getting a BSOD, just a freeze with the sound skipping a bunch and a frozen desktop. Only way to fix it was to force a shutdown.

sfc /scannow shows no issues. ChkDsk is fine. I'm just about to use Driver Verifier. Other than that I don't know where to go from here.

My PC keeps crashing and i have no idea why.

A:BSOD at random times caused by random drivers

Dont use a BETA display driver.

Uninstall the installed display driver using DDU. Then install the CCC 14.4 WHQL only.

Also Uninstall Avast using Avast Uninstall Utility. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Let us know for any further BSOD after doing these two.

Hello,
after searching through many forums and Windows help sites i still can't help myself to find, why i am getting these bluescreens. I even installed Windows completely new, but after installing the Realtek GBE network driver (manually, cause Windows didn't find it) the 'fun' began again. I removed all Realtek drivers again and installed the latest i could find on the Realtek site and it seemed to run smoothly. Then i downloaded all the other drivers like the AMD Graphics and Soundblaster Z driver and installed them. The BSOD's came/come completely random. Today i've been able to play three Dota 2 matches without any problems, then 15 minutes later again. I also have to say this system ran like this for half a year without almost any problems or BSOD's. It somehow became slow and i tried stuff, broke it and now it seems still broken, although i formatted the drive and reinstalled Windows.

I've tried to debug the minidumps myself but it says something different evertime (I'll add the dmp files at the end, although there has not always been one created after a BSOD). I've tried reinstalling all the drivers and no help. I've put all stuff from AMD/ATI into the exception of Avira Antivirus, because i've read there might be interferences.

I ran MEMTEST86+ for like 3 hours - no errors. I have ran disk scans - nothing.

The BSOD is different every time. The time i get it is completely random. The only common i could recognize is that STOP: 0x0000001E (0x0000000000000, 0x000000... Read more

Has been happening on and off for the last couple of months, strangely enough the problem went away once after we had a power surge but has now returned, Usually get at least 1 a day at a random time ( Maybe a game, maybe on youtube, maybe just right clicking a folder )

Took a photo of it last time and got this error code,

*** STOP: 0x0000001e (0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

After a bit of searching this forum i found i should also post a dump log from C:\Windows\Minidump ... When trying this i keep getting an access is denied message but i have admin privileges ?

Should also add that i have read about faulty drivers/ software and ran software to "fix" the problems yet i still get the BSOD.

Will try and get the dump log on for my next reply but any ideas straight off the bat ? Seems to be quite a common problem.

The other day, I installed Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista. Since about 2 days after I did, applications have started freezing randomly. I'm not sure it's the SP that's doing this to me though, cause it was a few days after I installed it and not right away. In Task Manager, there are less processes, which is weird. I could be doing anything and the application will freeze out of nowhere and I have to restart my computer to fix it. It's a hassle because sometimes I'm in the middle of something and it does this to me. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Does anybody know if there is a fix for it?
 

A:Random applications freeze at random times

This can be caused by a host of different things.

Here's what I would do first:

1. Scan for viruses or any type of malware.
2. Update all of my drivers for my network card, video card, sound card.
3. Uninstall any programs I either don't need or don't recognize in Add/Remove programs

My system has been extremely unstable since the last Windows updates about a week ago. Kaspersky Internet Security stops and restarts. Firefox, Outlook, World of Warcraft,etc crashing frequently. BSOD several times a day. I come to my desk and the logon screen is often there indicating the system crashed and rebooted while I was out.

This is very atypical for my system. I often go weeks without rebooting or having any program crash. I have noticed two error messages in the BSOD. One was memory management and the other was bad pool header. I suspect there have been others, but I'm not present every time Windows crashes.

Win7 Pro 64bit retail original OS on this system. I built this system about 6 months ago and it's been running very well until a week or so ago. Suggestions gratefully accepted.

- uninstall the antivirus software from your system (you can reinstall it, if so desired, when we're done troubleshooting)
- remove any remnants of the antivirus software using one of these free tools: Antivirus Uninstallers
- IMMEDIATELY install and update the free antivirus

NOTE: NEVER run more than 1 anti-virus, firewall, Internet Security/Security Center application at the same time.


Older versions of Acronis are known to cause BSOD's on Win7 systems also. Your copy has drivers that date from 2007. As such you MUST uninstall it.

In the table below is a list of drivers. Please update or remove the programs associated with any drivers dated from 2009 or earlier. Below the table is a list of links to more information about the drivers (it'll help you find out what programs belong to the drivers in question).

Hello, I'm currently running windows XP 64 bit and until recently, I have had absolutely no problems with my internet connection.
I have a wireless router that the cable company provided me with but it seems that when I go to certain areas in World of Warcraft, my internet will spaz out and sky rocket to 8000 latency or so before disconnecting me for at least 10 mins at a time. When I am able to get back on after its freak out, I still have around 2k latency and it will steadily go back down. It also disconnects all the other computers in the house including the wireless and the other desktop in the other room that is sitting idly. The cable company has sent out technicians several times to try to figure out what's wrong with it but by the time they get out here (3-7 days after I call and complain) there are no problems while the tech is here so it's "Impossible for us to diagnose the problem". We've tried rewiring the house and changing out the modem, but nothing seems to work, those two just simply made it so when it does occur, my down time is a few mins shorter.

Any ideas as to why it would freak out like this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

Also, the game is up to date with patches and what not and it isn't downloading any content while I am playing so that isn't the reason for the disconnects.

I have a random BSOD issue. I thought I had fixed it but still having issues.

I recently installed Windows 7 home premium edition to a new hard drive. I was having issues with a small older drive, so I went with fresh install thinking it would fix my issues.

nope. New drive and new windows install and I still get BSOD at random times, and its not the same errors.



So I got a program to read what was causing crashes, Info below. ( not too good at forum formatting ether...) I also did the log dump program recommended on forums. its been attached.

Help? I have no clue as to why or what is going on anymore...I have read on these forums and googled my issue/error codes so much, with no solid fix. Its beyond frustrating.

A:BSOD (random ones at random times) Windows 7

Had a look through your dumps and all of them blame a various core windows driver for the crash, as this cannot truly be the cause then some further testing will be required
Initially I would run an sfc scan to check for any corruption within windows itself SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Next I would run memtest to perform a thorough test of the RAM, preferably overnight for a minimum of 8 passes SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I notice you have no windows updates installed, it would be good to get this done as missing SP1 means you are a long way behind

Depending on the outcome of these will determine what else needs to be done but as the problem has transcended to a new HDD & OS then more hardware testing is likely

Hi,
I am getting BSODs at random times, while doing different things each time. Been getting them for 5 days trying to narrow down what could be causing it. Searching lead me here. I did the posting instructions. Also did sfc/scannow 2 times that was suggested on another post. After the scannow both times it told me there were corrupt files that it couldnt fix. Any help moving on from here would be great.

Thank you.

Hi,

I use my computer mostly for office work and have never experienced BSOD until about a month ago when I updated my drivers. One of the drivers I updated was the audio driver that immediately began causing problems including BSOD. I rolled back the driver update and reinstalled the driver which seemed to resolve the issue for a while but then after a week the BSOD began again and I have been unable to isolate the cause since then. I have continued to update firefox, antivirus, windows and other security software I have always used and these softwares never seemed to cause any problems before.

There are specific times when the BSOD occurs, mostly it is when I start the computer and during the first few minutes after windows loads or when I resume the computer from hibernate/sleep mode.

I have included the dump files and attached a screenshot.

Any help you can provide would be great.

Thank you

I have recently replaced the ram in my rig (4gb ddr2 667mhz) with 8gb ddr2 800mhz and was randomly experiencing BSOD's. done some searching, and decided to "underclock" the ram to 667. this helped for a while until a recent restart of the pc. Ran memtest86+ on both speeds (667 & 800mhz) and only got errors (8) on the 800mhz speed, and not exactly sure why. I have attached a dump file (not sure if I did it correctly) to this post if its any help at all. any help would be appreciated. thanks

Hello, Im new here so bare with me I built my custom pc a year ago now. Since day one iv been experiencing BSOD. At first it happened during or just after the first boot up of that day and was always Memory Management error. Soon after, i upgraded my ram from 4gb to 8 gb. After doing this the BSOD stopped happening as frequently, but started to happen more randomly. My Bsods were very unusual, i couldnt find anything like it online, instead of the blue screen, i got a pink and blue or a green and blue screen and was very difficult to make out what it said but i could usually make out the error.
For some strange reason i started to get other errors such as IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, PFN_LIST_CORRUPT, PAGE-FAULT-IN-NONPAGE-AREA, SYSTEM_THREAD-EXCEPTION and BAD_POOL_HEADER. I downloaded BlueScreenView to see what he problem was and they were nearly always caused by ntoskrnl driver and sometimes atikmdag driver. Ithen upgraded my GPU and the BSOD continued to happen but i got the normal fully blue screen and the green and blue or pink and blue screens stopped happening. I never get a BSOD during gaming, its nearly always either internet browsing or low level tasks or sometimes at boot up.I dont know if this is related but my browsers crash quite frequently too.
In the last few months i thought i had fixed the problem by fixing my ram speed because they were running at a weird speed and once i put it back to 1600mhz it stopped happening any where near as frequently. BSOD h... Read more

This is very weird! I had window 7 for about 6 month and it never did this until recently. Either when computer is idle or playing game, or typing up a paper, OR watching a movie, it will very randomly freeze and sound of movie i was watching will all get very slow motion wise. For example, if statement was "Hello", when the freeze up happen, it will be like "Heeeellllloooooooooooo" and i can not move my mouse or keyboard which forces me to do a booting.

I checked temp and nothing is over heating. i cleaned out registry with ccleaner also and did not help. I ALSO checked for driver issue from device manager and it seems like everything is up to date.

I read around this forum with similar issues and someone suggested to update a audio driver. My audio is not realtek and its called High definition Audio or something like that. I tried to update but crash still happens randomly.

Maybe I have a bad ram? someone suggested manually increasing the voltage from the BIOS menu but I am unsure on what to do there.

I just tried powercfg -h on . maybe this will fix it but i just wanted to post here for ur opinions. thank you!

No matter what I do my new computer build will freeze randomly at the most random moments. (all of them are a hard freeze requiring a reboot of the computer)

Here is the condensed version of the situations I have experience freezing. (please note this is a new system I built myself)

1. While freshly installing windows vista ultimate 64-bit,I was at the point of choosing my system user icon picture...

2. Scrolling through the STEAM game catalog, using the client not firefox/IE. (www.steampowered.com)...and while downloading my games from the steam client.

3. More than 3 times while browsing using firefox/IE

4. Afraid of it somehow being a virus/Trojan/etc. I tried performing a scan using Bitdefender 2009 Total protection software...and it froze twice while doing a "Deep System Scan"

5. While playing Crysis. FEAR. STALKER.

6. Once while looking at the screen of Diskeeper 2008 Pro Premier commercial disk de-fragmenting software. (diskeeper.com)


This has been repeating since the very start of the completion of my new system.


BEFORE I post information about my hardware I would like to point out that besides my computer freezing at the installation portion I have also experienced freezing before any hardware driver installation of my computents...literally minutes about a fresh install. Only happened once. (yes I freshly installed my OS countless times) as well as experiencing freezing with the newest drivers.

Hi. . .

Welcome to TSF.

We have had a few threads similar to yours recently that you may want to look over - there are 2 that I can recall off hand -

http://www.techsupportforum.com/micr...shes-help.html

http://www.techsupportforum.com/micr...a-crashes.html


In the interim, I would be glad to look at the software end of things to see if anything appears questionable. Please download the attached zip file and extract the batch and exe files to your desktop.

Go to your desktop, right-click on the batch file and select run as administrator. You will see the black "DOS" screen appear and scroll, the green status bar screen then the AutoRuns viewer screen - let it scan (look on bottom-left for status - "scanning..."). When AutoRuns is finished, the screen will close. The batch job will take several minutes to run. It will dump the app and system logs, run AutoRuns, msinfo32, dxdiag, driver listings, etc...

The output will be in a new folder found within your documents folder named TSF_Vista_Support.

Zip the contents of the new folder up and attach to your next post.

Any ? - please let me know.

Hello everyone and thank you for taking the time to read a newbie's post.

Anyways, I'm having a really frustrating problem.

Symptoms:
- Random BSODs happening at random time intervals from bootup
Example: Bootup, and after 5 minutes, BSOD. Bootup again, and
after 30 minutes, BSOD.
- BSODS are variety of errors not just one.

Side Note:
- Been running exact same build of windows 7 x64 from august 2009 till
November 2009. At around the 3rd, I did a clean install using the exact same
disc, drivers, etc. Problems started after my clean install.

Actions Taken:
- Ran Windows Memory Diagnostic on all memory with no errors
- Ran Windows Memory Diagnostic on each memory DIMM individually, and no errors
- Ran SeaGate Seatools and my hard drive passed
- Reinstalled Windows XP, Vista, and 7 version of my wireless usb adapter and problem continued
- Removed NVIDIA drivers for my 9600GT and using the default ones, problem still remained
- Problem still continues in Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Networking

- Did another clean install of windows 7 using again the same disc and drivers etc as from the time it worked, still nothing.

- on another post i read to run VERIFIER /FLAG 1 /ALL or something similar in command prompt. The last two minudumps are after I ran that and rebooted.

--------

The minidumps since the last clean install are included.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Roik

For the last few months I have been having strange stop errors. First they only appeared a few minutes after I started my computer for the first time that day, with many different error codes. After a couple of months of trying different solutions, testing my RAM, installing drivers, flashing BIOS etc. I figured it might be one of my hard drives acting up, and I removed my oldest couple. Since then my computer has been working fine, but today I had two BSODs in a row, with "The video memory manager has encountered a fatal error" and "fltmgr.sys".

Some other random error codes I've encountered:
Memory management
Page fault in non paged area
Bad pool caller
Driver irql not less than or equal

Also, most of the times my BSOD error dump stops at 95, and claims to be completed, but I don't receive a minidump file like when it reaches 100. Sometimes it keeps retrying, and stopping at 95.

It seems I have had some lag of late, and I thought it was due to a loose connection in my CD-RW....but since I have completely removed the CD-RW, as it seemed to stop the lag for a day or so, i continue to get the same thing over again...CPU constantly running resulting in lag

It isnt spyware/or a virus, as I've check into that pretty thoroughly...

To me, it sounds like the CPU is constantly running and is somewhat loud during gaming...causing lag...
Anyone's help would be appreciated?

A:CPU constantly running...

right click the task bar and open the task manager, click the processes tab and look at the columns for both CPU and for memory usage. Use the msconfig.exe to check what apps are starting up with bootup too. or try this; http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

I have a Compaq Presario PC, windows XP W/SP2 installed. Model # SR1503WM. The CPU constantly runs whether computer is being used or not. I have checked the task manager and it shows CPU as 0% and compaq connections agent as the only application running. I have 1.24GB of RAM installed. I have Norton installed and AVG and have checked for spyware and computer seems to be clean of any. The unit seems to be cool as it is not hot when felt or air from it, and also is free of dust clogging vents and inside of unit. What could be the problem. It is 2 years old this month. The noise runs me crazy after a while, thanks!

Model: Lenovo S41  
 
The fan has been a problem the past several months and has increased in the past few days. If I do anything remotely intensive, the fan starts running which really slows down the laptop to the point where I literally can't do anything. Any solutions? 
 
Thanks

A:S41 - Fan constantly running

That is usually caused by the vents that allow air to be drawn over the CPU heat sink being clogged with dust   Once the CPU gets hot, the system will slow down, and eventually just shut down to protect itself from a meltdown.     I would try using a vacuum cleaner hose and a can of computer cleaning air to blow/suck out the dust and see if that helps.     I that still fails, you may have to remove the base cover (see page 34 of the Lenovo S41/U41 Hardware Maintenance Manual) and clean the fan manually.     In rare case the heat sinks fail, or the thermal heatsink compund beween the CPU and the heat sink cracks and fails to transfer heat to the heat sink efficiently, mut most likely you will find the system is full of dust. Lenovo used to have a fan cleaning program in the Lenovo Energy Managment software, but I think it removed it for some reason.    It is supposed to run the fan backwards and forwards at high speed to try to clean the dust, but if it is really plugged, it probably will not work. Good luck. Lenovo S41/U41 S41-35 S41-70 S41-75 U41-70 Hardware Maintenance Manualhttps://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_s41-35_s41-70_s41-75_u41-70_hmm_201503.pdf

In Windows Task Manager, under the Performance Tab, my CPU is showing at 100% permanently. I've tried closing down some of the high runner processes but nothing makes any difference.

I've run several cleaners (RegCure, CCleaner etc) but again nothing makes any difference.
My PC is constantly freezing, hanging, sputtering and is becoming unusable.

I also noticed that when I manage to perform a normal shutdown, everything goes normally BUT my screen stays on, and the power button light remains on, but I can hear the drives and fan stopping. I then have to perform a manual powerdown by holding the on/off button for about 8-10 seconds.

My machine is a 3.06 GHz Pentium 4 Compaq Presario, 18 month old, O/S is Windows XP Home Edition, with SP 2.
Anyone out there have any ideas?
Thanks in advance

Hello,Pasting in contextual information from another topic ~ OBHere is a little history.March 30th A Windows problem first became evident as the CPU spiked to 100% and on reboot, Windows would not boot up stating it could be a hardware or software problem. At that time I thought it was the motherboard and had it swapped out because the error I had was different but the symtoms were the same prior to the system not booting.April 6th got the laptop back from HP and put in my HD to boot from. It worked for a day and then the CPU spiking issue was found, only this time with no failure to boot.Since that date I have tried to isolate the issue but to no avail. I have tried various restore dates and images, as well as manipulating the data on the master image (delete WoW before issue is active and reinstall it from scratch). None of it has worked.My latest attempt was to restore from my oldest image available [the other night]. It was left restoring and hasn't been tested yet. I am not sure if the "issue" will be visible on it. I tested one last night 3-4 weeks later (Feb 16th date) and it was but apparently never became active for close to 2 months...End of added material. ~ OBThis is in reference to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic219056.html and http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/218815/cpu-runs-at-100-constantly/.I have attached the log files that you requested.

A:CPU running at 100% constantly

Hello All,

I wanted to provide an update to this. I blew away the image last night hoping to restore from the factory settings and get it up and running. That worked for about an hour before the symptoms came back. That normally leads me to think that there is something on my home network that is passing a virus along before I can patch windows, but to add further confusion to this topic, the same situation has occurred on my work laptop. Both are HP NC6400. That is the only similarity. The work laptop is running XP and my home machine Vista. I had both machines rebuilt and the work one without ever stepping into my house exhibited the same issue on a fresh build. Is it possible that there is something resident in the BIOS of these machines, or that a Virus screwed up the CPU's?

Hi,

I have two computers, one computer runs smoothly at a cpu level of around 10%, and has less RAM, hard drive space, and runs more cpu related tasks, it has a duel core 2.4, my other computer, however, runs at 100% all the time, no matter how many processes I kill in tskmgr.exe, it runs incredibly slow, it has a duel core 2.2.

I've ran malwarebytes, CCleaner, registry cleaner, defrag, and it still runs at 100%, it didn't used to do this, it's happened for at least two months, but it keeps getting worse.

My CPU usage is always running at 50-55%, which it wasn't doing a week ago. When I check the "Processes" tab under Task Manager, there isn't any application/browser/programs that are taking up that cpu usage. I also ran a virus check with TrendMicro and it came up with nothing. I'd like to be able to know what is running in the background and stop it. It's making work related programs and browsing more slow.

Hi, i just got my Lenovo 501S-14IKB today. Everything is working fine, its super fast in comparison to my old laptop. Only problem is, that the fan seems to run all the time and is making noticable noise. the temperature of the cpu aer all in the range of 20 only the hd was at 34. so normally that are not temperatures where cooling is needed. If i let the notebook idle for 2 min it goes dead silent but starts again even if i just scroll down a homepage. And even if i start programms whicht take more resources, the fan does not get louder. Is there anyway to controll the fan? Help would be really appreciated, Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english

The resulting heat means my laptop sounds like it is trying to take off. I have tried removing .xml files from indexing as has been suggested on my multiple searches. Didn't help at all. Somehow turning off the process if possible is also not a solution in my opinion.

Looking in Event Viewer, I noticed a great many of the following 'Warnings' from the 'Search' source "The protocol host process 8472 did not respond and is being forcibly terminated {filter host process 10000}." The numbers involved change frequently.

Any ideas as to how I can fix this? It's driving me mad. I have attached a screenshot from the process tree area of Process Monitor, it is perhaps relevant.

I am using a HP Pavilion dv6 with an Intel i7-2630 QM, 6 GB RAM and AMD Radeon 6770M GPU (along with Intel Graphics Card). In the past few days, anytime I open a program, such as Mozilla, Chrome, Spotify, the computer's fans kick on. This has never happened in the past. Usually I have to run a video through the browser or play a game for the fans to turn on. The fan turns on when on AC power and when on battery. When this happens, the CPU usage is around 5-7% with 40-50% RAM usage (no change from the past). I am not sure why all of the sudden the laptop's fans are turning on. I have looked at the processes and do not see anything out of the norm and the average temp of the CPU's is about 51-54 C. I have not installed any new software in the past several months. Any input or ideas about why this may be happening would be greatly appreciated. I use Process Explorer and Core Temp to monitor my computer as well as Norton 360 as antivirus software. Thanks.

Hi,

I am running Vista Home Basic. I have good computer knowledge and skills although certainly not an expert. I can't understand why I am constantly getting the low C: memory warning. I store all pictures and music, etc. on a separate hard drive, and I have carefully gone over my program files and uninstalled any that didn't seem worthwhile. I have a 70 gig hard drive which seems like lots and is more than any computer I've owned before. Sometimes it seems that if I delete files, etc. to clear up memory and the next time I come back to my computer I'm out of memory again. I often get the "could not complete back up due to insufficient memory" notice. I'm unclear on what is being backed up and if this is part of the problem.

I have 3 GB of RAM and the Virtual Memory is currently set at 3242 MB

Help!

Hi and welcome to vista forums

WE could use some info on your computer like how much memory you have, but I think you are running low on "virtual memory". Virtual memory or page file is set in the system control panel>advanced settings. Dependant on the amount of RAM you have it should be set for between 1 and 2 times the amount of ram. If you run out of RAM more and more things are stored in the page file untill it too is out of space. thats when y ou get the low memory warning.

If you like I can walk you thru the settings and where to change them, just tell us how much ram you have.

Virtual Memory Paging File - Change

hope this helps

Long story of what's happened so far:

So about a week ago I was on firefox and using google search. I scrolled through the page and my firefox window closed. internet explorer opened for a brief second, it then closed itself, then a program called XP security 2011 downloaded itself and started running a virus scan. I just assumed it was a fake (I've had this sort of thing happen on other computers in the form of Spy Sheiff and something else years before). My internet was hijacked and I couldn't open any page in any browser. So I turned the computer off, ran malwarebytes anti-malware in safemode and it found a few things. I deleted everything that came up and I turned the computer back on in normal mode and I ran into a few other problems.

While the internet now worked, whenever I tried to open (mostly) any other program, it would ask what program I wanted to open it with (the list of the default programs). After a while of searching, I came across a registry fix for it, downloaded it and it worked.

Some point after that though I just ran more scans in Malwarebytes, and whenever I boot the computer normally it runs super slow. I pin pointed this to services.exe using the task manager but from what I read it seems that it's a genuine file that has malware attached to it. It's hogging every bit of CPU that isn't being used by everything else. If I run the computer in safe mode it might run at 80-90% which is definitely better then 100, but it&... Read more

How/where do I save my own photos for desktop background so that A drive isn't running all the time?

I'm running a Gateway 1GHz, 40GB HD, CDRW, Iomega Zip drive and Windows ME.
If I keep a Zip disk in, with photo I want on it, Drive A is quiet.

Recently started noticing that my laptop is being heavily taxed while at idle (I'm not doing anything). Looking in the task list, I found services.exe, svchost.exe and wscript.exe all floating around 15-20% of CPU capacity. Something, not sure what, is taking advantage of the scripting services in Windows and is constantly running.My DDS log:.

A:wscript.exe constantly running

Ran Malwarebytes just to see if it noticed anything...found a trojan..

PUM.Hijack.Desktop

Searched the forum here and found nothing on this one. As I suspected, Malwarebytes was unable to remove it and the trojan has restarted after my system restarted. I'll keep searching.

Have taken delivery of a new desktop pc and it is ok except for the fact that the fan cranks up to (a noisy) full speed when pc switched on and carries on like this until it is turned off.
I queried this with supplier's help desk but they assured me that this is normal?
Should I just accept that it is (normal)?

I just bought a new toshiba pc i got it last thursday and when im just sitting at the desktop the fan just kicks into high gear constantly running and making noise and then after a few minutes it stops but it also starts back up making the same annoying noise minutes later is the fan suppose to be working so constantly? And the cpu temperature is constantly at 30 degrees or higher is that normal? even when i turn on the pc after its been off for a few hours its still in between the same temperature range that i mentioned earlier. also for example on this pc if i have firefox open and i have photoshop open or any other programs the screen brightness changes slightly dimmer when i switch from one program to another on its own. Im not sure should i take it back im thinking about doing that i cant take the annoying fan and the automatic switching of the screen brightness upon switching application windows is a little strange.

A:my fan is constantly running and is very noisy what do i do?

A constatly running fan usually means overheating or a defective fan. You said 30C or higher. The higher is the imporant part, as 30 is not too high

I am running WinXP Pro SP3 and I have had an ongoing issue with my rundll32.exe suddenly spiking to 50% and then fluctuating around there. I use all the usual suspects (Spybot, CC Cleaner, Avira Antivir, Malwarebytes) and my system is clean of viruses and malware. I have prepared a HJT log file, a task manager screenshot and a system32 screenshot. The rundll32.exe icon is not the standard white icon or icon with a symbol, but looks more like a piece of paper. Is this normal for this icon?I will provide any other information to anyone who can provide me some assistance.Thank you in advance for you time and advice.

Can anyone off assistance? I have a dell laptop and a friend of mine was using it over the weekend. This person was accessing 'myspace' and 'myspace im' which I think surfaced this problem. When I started up my computer I got this STOP error: IRQL_NOT_GREATER_OR_EQUAL

So I inserted my windows xp pro OS disc and tried to re-install. Well now, the egg timer is constantly running when I start up the system and when I look at the performance, it's at about 45% when I have nothing running. And sometimes the STOP error comes up at start up.

Hello! my old computer's HD is Running constantly. i cant get it to stop work. is it a hardware problem or software? and how can i solve it? thanks for your help

A:My Harddrive is running constantly

There's quite a few things that can have that effect. Let's start simple and work up.

How old is the hard drive?

I would check the overall space of the hard drive, good practice to have at least 20% free. The HD may also be fragmented, you can check the status of both of these from the disk defragment application. If the HD space is lower then 20%, you may want to delete temporary files from Disk cleanup.

Next I would check the RAM and Virtual memory amount, it depends on what system your running, but a good baseline is anywhere from 2gb to 4gb of ram, and 1.5x your current ram amount = virtual memory. You can confirm these from the Task Manager, under the Performance tab.

If those come up clean and fine, you may want to do a quick virus scan. I personally recommend Malwarebytes, you can find the most current version from their website at Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download

I just received a new HP 22-b052 AIO yesterday and as soon as I started it up, I could hear the fan on the left side (or right side from the back) constantly running. The sound from far away is unnoticeable but when I'm in front of it, it is loud. Is this normal for HP AIO (All in One)? I called HP tech support and spent hours recovering and reinstalling BIOS, running hardware tests but to no avail.  Also, could I replace the fan? Is this PC customizable, would I be able to switch out the mobo and CPU (and of course fan)?
