Geforce 7300 LE - Blue screen of death - Multiple lines down screen.

Q: Geforce 7300 LE - Blue screen of death - Multiple lines down screen.

Today I booted my computer up to be promoted with a black screen, I gave it a good half an hour before forcing it to shutdown, to which when I booted it back up. Was then promoted with a blue screen about the video card not being able to lead, that happened twice.

I then booted it into safe mode, fiddled around with the drivers to see what was going on, after restarting it again, I got the same black screen, this kept on happening. I then concluded my best solution was to install XP, this worked the video card runs. So the card is not dead, but there are multiple blue lines going down the screen in 4 columns. After going into the device manager I saw that it claimed it was not installed, then I went to Google and downloaded the driver, after installing the computers goes to the same black screen that I got on windows 7.

I have no clue what the problem is, so any help would be most appreciated. Also I tried installing Linux, but after getting though then loading screen of the installer, it goes to the black screen. At the moment in am on my tablet so sorry if there are so many mistakes. I'll try and get some photos of how it looks.

PC Specs:

- Dell Dimension E520
- Intel pentium D
- 2gb Ram
- Nvidia Geforce 7300 LE


Thank you, any help will be hugely appreciated.

A: Geforce 7300 LE - Blue screen of death - Multiple lines down screen.

Hi Sean,

I don't like to say it, but it sounds like the graphics card is dead. I had the same issue on an old 8800gts, it would work until I installed the drivers, then I would get very bad artifacts/lines down the screen.
I tried it on 2 different PC's with the same end result once the drivers were installed.

Whenever I turn on my computer with Windows 8 installed, I always get this Blue Screen. However, what's curious is that it doesn't display any message at all! It just displays random horizontal lines on my screen. Whatever key I press on my keyboard and no matter how many times and wherever I click with my mouse, not a single thing happens. So, I have no other choice but to hold the power button on my CPU manually to turn the computer off and on again. The same thing happens when I do that: I get the Blue Screen again after resetting. I try to turn the computer off and on again by using the same method to do so, and only then will the computer eventually launch Automatic Repair, therefore forcing me to boot into safe mode with networking instead.

It has been this way for several weeks now, and I am beginning to use my computer in safe mode on a regular basis. I know that I shouldn't do this since safe mode is mainly used to fix the computer; however, I have tried running all my antivirus software and spyware removal tools, to no avail. There aren't any viruses on my computer, and every single driver is up to date. I am also starting to lose hope since I can't even open some of the programs that I need the most such as Microsoft Office and other programs that I need for my schoolwork. Furthermore, since I am in safe mode, my printer was also uninstalled, thereby rendering it useless and forcing me to ask other people to print my schoolwork for me.

A:Blue Screen of Death Without Any Message, Just Random Horizontal Lines

If you can use the pc normally in safe mode, I think it's a software issue. Maybe your windows got corrupted.
When did this start? did you install anything or change anything in your computer's configuration? try using MBAM. If you could boot windows normally, I'd ask you to post a hijackthis log.
Does the bsod appear after the windows loading screen or before or while it's loading?

I just replaced my Geforce 6600 256M with a Geforce 9800 512M, both manufactured by XFX. Prior to the upgrade everything worked fine and running the latest drivers. I replaced the card and kept the driver, assuming it would function properly. After installation everything seemed ok until I tried to run a CD, that's when everything slowed down and the drive ran without apparently reading any data, or at least it didn't do anything. When I tried to install Fallout 3 the system crashed to the infamous Blue screen of Death.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers three times now, to include shutting off AV and ensuring all fragments of the previous drivers were removed (used Driver Sweper and CCleaner). When I put in Fallout 3 the drive spins up and then the screen flashes blue with some text on it and the system reboots. I cant read the text before it reboots but I think I seen something about VGA, maybe. MS installed some update after the last driver reinstall and needed to restart, but instead I tried to install my game again and it tried to run instead of crashing but of course couldn't complete installation - but it proved that the problem wasn't the hardware specifically.... Since rebooting I tried to install again but it just blue screens, no idea why the hanging update would allow the drive to run and not any other time. Also, it plays audio and video just fine, just not data....

The problem only occurs when I try to run something from the CDR... Read more

This has been going on with me for about a year now. I've narrowed the BSoD down to the vid card's driver file. I've used nearly every driver Nvidia has released to include the newest beta version to try and remedy the random BSoD issue. It happens only in games, and then, only in a select few. In those few games, the BSoD cooks off basically every 10-12 minutes or when the game is left idle for a couple minutes. To follow is the error report.

Any help would be peachy.

A:GeForce 6800GT: Blue Screen of Death ( 1000008 )


Just got off the phone with a helpful guy at BFGtech Tech support. We got on Everest (handy little Mobo/Chip/GPU all-in-one temperature monitor) and did some load testing. According to them, the GPU I had (the 6800GT OC made by BFG -Tech) should only be showing a temp about 10-15 degrees above the ambient temperature in a room-temperature enviornment when the system is idle. My GPU was sitting on 62 degrees C at an ambient temp of 46 degrees C.

They said this in and of itself didn't look good, but we still put it through some load testing. We used Command and Conquer 3 since it was what I had in the drive. Only 5 minutes into the game, the GPU temp went from 62C to 79. Once it passed 80 at the 6 minute mark, it shot to over 120 before the 6min30sec mark. At around 130 the system locked up, and gave me the above error.

With a little more testing, we found that the GPU's cooling fans are not operating properly. Also, since this has been going on for a while, the excessive heat has also shorted out one of the RAMDACs. Longer story short, BFG is sending me a new card.

Gotta love lifetime warranties.

Dunno if there is a way to upload the BSOD mini-dumps; but ideally someone could make sense of them.. and help me solve my problem. If, in the process, i learned how to read the min-dumps myself, I could help the next person who has a similar problem.

I have never seen a screen like this in the 20 years I've had my own computer.

I had Windows 8 on a secondary drive as a dual boot with Windows 7 temporarily as I migrated to Windows 8. I somehow messed up either the boot loader or somehow corrupted the Win8 install for which I'll skip the details for now. But it was just as I was starting to decommission my Win7 install (I removed one drive from the 2-drive mirror running Win7 but figuring the single disk left would still run in a 'degraded' status. It ended up messing something up.).

I've been running bootrec /fixmbr, fixboot, scanos, and rebuildBCD from my Win8 USB stick and it says it completed but no luck on booting. I get either 0xc0000001 or 0xc000021a errors. Auto repair can't fix it.

I tried running this command, "bcdboot c:\windows /s c:", and got the screen shown in the attachment. White vertical lines on an orange background.

The only drives connected is the Win8 SSD sata drive and a DVD drive on IDE. I disconnected the DVD drive and the Win8 flash screen would appear with the circular dots but would freeze right there.

I don't have logs or screenshots to show but the single partition on the SSD is marked as active via diskpart (no system reserve partition), bcdedit shows c:\windows as the default location of the OS, diskpart shows the partition as c:, but the DVD drive is disk0, and the SSD is disk 1. Would that be a problem?

It is like it can't find the winload.exe file but I verified it exists... Read more

Have you tried putting the removed drive back in?

It looks like a video card problem (hardware) to me - but it shouldn't be that because you're able to use the USB Startup Repair functions (am I right in this assumption?). That means (to me) that it's likely to be a video driver problem (?).

Can you attempt to boot into Safe Mode? If so, what happens?

I will start explaining my most urgent problem, then move on to the saga of my RAM. Before I begin though, some information about my PC. I am running MS Vista Basic edition, with service pack 1 & 2 installed. I have a ASUS Maximus Extreme motherboard, and I currently have 2 RAM types installed (more on the why of that later).

One set of memory: G.SKILL Trident 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory

The fourth stick of memory is: Crucial Ballistix 1GB (1 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model

I'll explain the why of 2 different memory types now. I have 2 sticks of the crucial memory. My system was constantly overheating for a while (I would get forced resets and a Over Temperature error on boot up). This most likely damaged the memory. So I bought some fans and new RAM, the G.SKILL Trident stuff. Only when I try to start my computer with that RAM, it seems to start but I won't get anything from the monitor. There are no beeps from the computer though, it seems to start normally. But when I have 1 stick of the Crucial memory and the 3 Trident sticks in, it starts just fine.

On to my most urgent problem. When I install the RAM, all of the memory detects. At some point (I don't know when) it will drop down to detecting 3 gigs instead of 7. If I move around the Crucial memory, it will all detect again for a while, then go back to 7 gigs. As I am an avid gamer, 3 ... Read more

In need of serious help.*
To begin, I am stupid and haven't backed up any of my files so for now a windows reinstall is out of the question. (unless it's completely necessary) okay, so the problem: I was using my computer as normal. Then while on Google Chrome, it started getting slow and said "not responding" this happens all the time, to everyone so I waited and then the dreaded Blue screen of death appeared. Didn't get a look at what it said because it shut down almost immediately. After that it loaded as normal? Which is weird, I think. But got stuck after startup on the black screen of death. All I have is a cursor. Can't do ctrl+alt+del, can't load any of the safe modes. When I go on startup repair, it says "no restore points" on system restore and "could not detect a problem" on system repair or whatever it's called. There must be something to fix this?! :/ I live in hope that the whole system doesn't need to be wiped clean because as I said, I stupidly haven"t backed up my files.*

Can anyone help?? Please?

Windows XP Media Center Edition Service Pack 3

Hi, this post is regarding my sisters computer.

She started having problems a couple of months ago involving the PC not booting up unless it was in safe mode. When she switched the power on, windows would try to load but she would soon be faced with a STOP 0X0000007 blue screen error message. She spoke to dell support and they managed to single out the Nvidia 7300 graphics card as causing the problem. She disabled it from device manager whilst in safe mode and the computer now boots up. However this caused scrolling to be really quite sluggish. The page takes ages to respond and complete one scroll. Further evidence of the blue screen being caused by the graphics card occured when i re-enabled the graphics card.

I have tried updating drivers and re-enabling the card, but to no avail. I have run scans using, spybot search and destroy, malware bytes, and avast anti virus. All complete with no traces of viruses or spyware.

How can I fix this?

Thank you for any insight you can give me to this problem.

I have been trying to fix this for a good 4 hours now, it occurred suddenly, my computer force restarted and I got these white lines only when I got into the log in screen, the loading windows screen did not have these lines, there around about 8 of them across my monitor, I ignored them at first and tried to log in, but when I log in a blue screen with no text comes up, and so I restarted my computer and entered safe mode with networking, it loaded fine, with no horizontal lines.
However when loading it did pause on a driver for a while, AswRvrt.sys ,though it said it loaded and safe mode with networking did start.

So to try and get a normal boot to work I tried a system repair, this didn't fix it, I also tried a system restore, again this didn't fix it either, the lines still appear on a normal boot, I have no idea what's causing it.

Hi, thanks for checking my question. I haven't found an answer to my particular situation:

Dell xps m1430 laptop w/vista (32).

It all started with a blue screen w/scrolling text after the fated restart. The blue screen text said "if this is the first time you've seen this message..." and then comp restarted, again showing the blue screen, then restarted into windows repair mode, after repair mode tried to fix the problem comp restarted, then the screen went black / blank right after the little windows loading animation (where the bar keeps moving from left to right and there's a small windows logo).
It all happened fast, so there may have been steps I forgot, but that's the jist of it.

Now screen always goes black / blank during startup after the windows loading animation, so I can't start windows in normal mode.
I can start in safe mode if I manually force shutdown by holding the power button, so I'm not imploding with fear... ok I am.

Possible causes:
1. This occured right after installing 11 vista updates (that restart was when I saw the blue screen)

2. Also occured the restart after running a patch called "Vista TCP/IP and UAC AutoPatch 6.0" I downloaded it from softpedia, the developer was listed as defcon, and their website listed was, but the site is down(I found this out after the problem occured).

Hello everyone.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L450D-13X computer for the kids, and for the price it's a good laptop. Have had no issues with it until two weeks ago when the screen froze for the boys whilst playing a game and downloading a program from the net. Had to do a force shutdown and since then we have a BSoD on every boot-up. This is what we have tried:

On 'Starting Windows' we are given an option of either 'Launch Startup Repair' which ends up as BSoD or 'Start Windows Normally' which reverts back to the 'Starting Windows' option list.
Any attempt to enter 'Safe Mode' results in BSoD.
Attempting to boot an ISO of the Windows Recovery Disk on a USB key (we did highlight it and promote it to the top) results in BSoD. Borrowing a proper Window 7 installation DVD and highlighting this as an option results in BSoD.

In fact, the only option we used that threw up something different was using advanced boot options. On one of these options we got the Blue Screen of Death with the following information:

Disable Bios Memory Options such as caching/shadowing

I don't mind erasing the hard drive and starting again, there's nothing on it that's critical. I'd very, very much appreciate a steer on this. Checked the web for stuff and nothing seems to assist in any other options. I am not particularly tech literate but can follow instructions.

I am currently on in safe mode and there are lines all across the screen which move/vanish when i run the cursor over them.

This is a picture taken with my phone of what the screen looks like in safe mode, print screen doesn't show the lines.

system info, no point in putting the graphics info up because they're showing as N/A (which i assume is due to being in safe mode).

I apologise if any of this post is messy, i can't really see the screen properly.

This problem has happened before, i used an air-duster to clear some dust from inside the tower and it worked fine after a couple of days, however this time it hasn't worked.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, i'm not very good with computers.

I have the minidump file if that is of use to anyone?

A:Blue screen, then lines on screen.


This seems like a graphics card problem; whether it is fixable or not is uncertain at this point.

Could you try a different video card in the system? Perhaps borrow one from a friend, or steal one from a different computer.

My brother has a Sony Vaio FW21L laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit installed. Yesterday when he turned it on after the welcome screen appeared he got a blue screen of death. He says he hasn't installed any new devices or software and he ran a virus scan which revealed no problems. He tried a system restore to the day before and also entered safe mode but the problem persists.

Can anyone tell me how this can be solved?

A:Solved: Blue screen of death after welcome screen

Problems that persist in Safe Mode and after System Restore's are usually hardware ones. But I'd also try a restore to a few days further back before the problem.

If the problem remains, start by checking the memory.

In Vista you can do this by running mdsched.exe

On reboot when the scanner appears, press F1 and run the extended tests.

I don't think it will show any non Microsoft drivers, but --

I can run a debugging utility on the dump files if you do this:

1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
2 > navigate to c:\windows\minidump and copy the last few minidump files to that folder. *this assumes 'c' is your boot drive, if it is not, subsitute accordingly
3 > close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.
4 > use the "manage attachments" in the "advanced" reply window to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

This might point us to a non Microsoft driver causing the error, if one exists for it.

I've gotten two blue screens recently and I can't figure out why.

It happened, both times, when I was playing a hi-def movie with Media Player Classic.


abit IP35 Pro mobo
Intel E8400 cpu
EVGA 8800GT gpu
Scythe Ninja heatsink
Corsair HX520 psu
8GB Corsair RAM

I've tested the memory and it seems fine, as do my hard drives. I've remounted the heatsink on the CPU.

Should I try updating the BIOS on the motherboard, since there are known problems with my cpu and mobo? Would that help? The only know problems are with temperature reading, and a BIOS update is said to fix them.

I had Windows check for a solution and it said there was most likely a hardware problem - RAM, CPU, power supply, or motherboard. I was hesitating to update the BIOS, but if it's a temp. problem with CPU, then I don't have much of a choice.

Here's what was in the pop-up window after I rebooted Windows:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.0.6001.
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:

I have a serious problem at my hands.

This moring when I turned on my laptop a '0x00000051 (0x00000001, 0xL1, 0L008, 0x00716000, 0x000001D6)' Registy Error appeared on a blue screen. It then continuously restarts, never making it to the logon screen.

I have tried to reboot in Safe Mode and 'Last Known Working' mode but the same blue screen appears.

As I dont have a XP Home install disk (only boot disk supplied with laptop), I could not repair my registry so I have installed a parallel version of Windows XP Pro that came with another PC. I can access the hard disc so I will be able to back up most of my files BUT I cannot access the Documents and Settings of my user from the original OS because I selected 'Make this Folder Private' when I made the account.

Does anyone know of a way to disable the 'Make This Folder Private' option on an account that is on a parallel version of XP?

I'm sure everyone is familiar with the popup in Vista where your screen is grayed out and you must "Continue" or "Cancel" to run an administrative function... Well... My copy of vista has decided that it would be much more humorous to give the user the gray screen without the dialog box. Quite annoying. The only way to get back is to CTRL ALT DEL, and then just click cancel when that screen comes up. But in the meantime, I pretty much can't make any changes to my computer because I don't receive the continue / cancel dialog box...

I have made a search, and cannot find a topic on my problem. in the lower left hand corner of my screen centering 2 & 1/8" above bottom of 17" screen, and starting 1/4" from left edge of screen and ending 3" from left of screen I have lines of what I imagine are pixels leaving dark lines they have only been noticed in the last few days, and they have grown longer since last night when I measured them. When I look at the screen through a magnifying glass, I see a very small checkerboard of black lines, which I presume are pixels, there are six filled in lines, the top one being 2 & 3/4" long, and the ones below it are shorter, the lines then seem to fill in and become solid in the very center of the line. Is this a common sign? I thought it would be a sign that my monitor was experiencing a burnt image (like Old TV's test patterns becoming burned in) untill I made the search on the forum, then I was really baffled.

Recently, my LCD monitor started showing red and blue lines in certain areas of the screen, especially outlining images. I at first thought that someone had tinkered with the monitor display settings and made the reds and blues more intense, but I found that messing around with the color settings did nothing to get rid of these lines.

My monitor then died a few days later (although I'm not sure if it's a coincidence), so I replaced it with an older monitor, and that one as well showed the red and blue lines, so I replaced it again with the same result.

I figured that it's not a problem with the monitor because I took a screenshot of my problem, saved it as a .png file, and emailed it to myself on another computer, and on that computer the red and blue lines do not appear in the image.

I have an NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 video card that came with the computer, and my OS is Windows 7 (64-bit). Any help is much appreciated, thanks.

A:Red and blue lines on screen

You have to swap out the graphics card. It's really the only way to eliminate the video card as the source of the problem. Goofy lines like that can be symptomatic of the video card failing. If the driver in the machine didn't have a problem before, and there haven't been any other major changes in the hard or software configuration, stands to reason that the card is the prime suspect.

I'm not exactly sure where in the video system a screen shot is taken, but it seems certain it's well before that actual screen output. Were we using the same video connecting cable on all the different screens? Beause you might try another monitor cable first if it was.

My system had become very slow. And there also appears to be some problem with the graphics. When I close a window, there remain blue or yellow lines on the desktop, where the border of the window used to be. I saw a suspicios process whose name I have forgotten, but I remember that the search I conducted returned that it has something to do with nvidia and is not actually a malware maybe. It was taking too much resources. I ended it and the performance got a little better. I also did something I don't remember, after which, that process doesn't start again.

Also, dap.exe was taking so much resources. The process was there even after I exited DAP. Although DAP was functioning perfectly. I also uninstalled DAP. The process doesnt come back now.

But the blue and yellow lines are still there. And the system is still slow. What do I do???

Ok so here's the problem. My friend recently bought a PowerColor HD7850 2GB GDDR5 graphics card and after installing the card and the drivers, and restarting windows; the loading screen gets all kinds of lines across the screen up until the point where you enter in your log in information and then a blue screen. The AMD install manager is responsible for downloading and installing the latest driver for his device, so he didn't download a bad driver since it comes directly from AMD. Whenever he reattempts to install everything, he has to reinstall windows due to being stuck in the blue screen loop when he attempts to log in to windows regularly. Obviously without the drivers, windows can't detect his card. But any attempt to install the drivers causes the "tears" in the screen.

Here are the specs of his desktop
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k CPU @ 3.40GHZ
Motherboard and slots: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H -- 1x PCI-E 3.0 x16, 4x USB 3.0
8 gigs of Ram
Plus the aforementioned gpu.

Can anyone point us in the right direction as to what the problem may be?

He pretty much can't use his desktop because his card isn't working.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Okay so I've been running a Windows Vista since 2008 and all was fine until around Summer 2010. I came home, was told to update McAfee, so I did. Upon that update, my screen began to "blow up" into a popcorn type screen, and if audio were to be playing it would freeze the audio in the sound, a repeated sound.​
So I uninstalled McAfee and it seemed to solve the problem. But playing YouTube would cause it to go boom again. So after about a year, I contacted DELL who seemed to fix the issue by updating my graphics card. The issue was fixed for a good 24 hours and now it does it again.​
Expect the popcorn/repeating sound lasts for a minute, and then goes to the BSOD and gives me Physical Memory Dump and counts to 100%. It does this if I play a YouTube video, go to a flash site, etc. Sometimes it'll just do it cause it can. Also, I cannot log onto my computer before 11AM or it "blows up" automatically.​
I usually run: Internet Explorer, MSN Windows Live Messenger, iTunes, Adobe Photoshop CS2, and sometimes Microsoft Word. I have considered updating to Windows 7 to see if it fixes the issue. I have 4GB Memory, and someone else from Dell said a memory upgrade would do. But I am so lost at what to do, and don't have the money to lavishly spend on fixing the computer. I have pictures of the popcorn screen and have turned off the automatic restart.

Then i booted into safe mode to find if it was a motherboard issue. The lines remained.

If its an add in card re-seat it in its slot and make sure any power cables are securely connected. You may want to unplug the power supply from the wall plug so your PC doesn't accidentally start up while you are working on it. Also make sure the heat sink is free of dust and the fan (if it has one) is working correctly. You may want to check your case fans for dust too while you have the case open.

Blue screen is a screen for when your computer crashes but no hummingbird. You can check by going to c:\windows\minidump and seeing if there are files with the extension *.dmp. If so upload them to us.

No DMP files included in upload please try this method

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.

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

I've seen these screens before when I had video driver issues with another compuer. I have the Nvidia driver installed now. When I tried to upgrade to the190.38 drivers, I got the green screen of failure on start up, and had to reboot in safe mode and roll back the drivers.

The video card is Nvidia GeForce 7900 Gt.

Can anyone offer me some tips or advice? It would be greatly appreciated



Hi and welcome to sevenforums

we really could use your system specs. Os (32bit or 64), and install clean or upgrade.

Hi so I am having problems with my computer. About 6 hours ago I had left my computer running for around 2 hours, in complete inactivity, and when I started using it the screen froze and turned off. Deciding to turn it manually off, I then found vertical blue lines appearing on the windows screen as it started up. This just got worse as the screen went totally black but the computer kept running. I assume this is not a hardware problem, because I am typing this now on safe mode with networking and there is no blue lines.
I already ran some steps of my own before asking for help from this website with avg, superantispyware, combofix, malewarebytes, and a temporary file cleaner by old timer. The found some viruses and spyware which they deleted.
I haven't seen now if my computer can boot in normal mode now, because I fear it might get infected again.
P.S. I think I followed the instructions for the GMER scan mostly right, but I'm kind of confused on the part if I don't get the message that the tool warns of rootkit activity. What should be checked on the right hand side then cause mine didn't include c drive (the drive I have information on) checked.

A:Blue lines at startup? Screen shuts off when I boot in normal mode

The main problem with my computer not being able to load and the vertical blue lines was solved. The video card indeed appeared to be burned out or malfunctioning.
There was as a result no virus affecting my system.
In case anybody is reading the main way you can use to see if theirs a virus or your video card is malfunctioning is by running video tests or if any lines appear on the dell logo because viruses usually affect your system after the dell logo loads and when windows starts to load

For some time now a computer that I have has been constantly restarting, freezing or just being annoying.
A friend of mine has had a look at it and he can't see any problems. He suggested re-installing windows so I tried that, low and behold enter the Blue Screen, It has an error message ( USBPORT.SYS - Address F83DB50D) If anyone can think of anything please contact me. Ty for ur time.

A:Blue Screen Of Death

The entire error message would be more than helpful.

But after reinstalling Windows, did you also reinstall all the motherboard chipset drivers? They would have been lost in a new install, and the system could be limping along on the default Windows ones.

A bit more detail as to Operating System version and hardware make/model would be helpful also.

Hi to all,
I just got an HP Pavilion a1737c, using operating system Vista Home premiun. I am getting what I call the blue screen of death, which I think is a Windows error page? I have attached a picture of the screen, because I can't get a screen shot when it happens. It seems to happen most when I am trying to download something from Itunes to my 30gig IPOD.
Also, can someone please tell me how I change the information that shows up at the bottom of my posts because it is out dated, now with the new computer.

thank you

One of the household computers has suddenly started to crash. I'm uncertain as to why, but would appreciate it if someone could take a look at the minidump file and see what the issue is. Thanks.

A:Blue Screen of Death


The attached DMP file is of the KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000008e) bug check.

This indicates that a kernel-mode program generated an exception which the error handler did not catch.

Let's go ahead and enable Driver Verifier for more information as the dump contains very little:
Driver Verifier:

What is Driver Verifier?

Driver Verifier is included in Windows 8, 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 to promote stability and reliability; you can use this tool to troubleshoot driver issues. Windows kernel-mode components can cause system corruption or system failures as a result of an improperly written driver, such as an earlier version of a Windows Driver Model (WDM) driver.

Essentially, if there's a 3rd party driver believed to be at issue, enabling Driver Verifier will help flush out the rogue driver if it detects a violation.

Before enabling Driver Verifier, it is recommended to create a System Restore Point:

Vista - START | type rstrui - create a restore point
Windows 7 - START | type create | select "Create a Restore Point"
Windows 8 - Restore Point - Create in Windows 8

How to enable Driver Verifier:

Start > type "verifier" without the quotes > Select the following options -

1. Select - "Create custom settings (for code developers)"
2. Select - "Select individual settings from a full list"
3. Check the following bo... Read more

My current set up is:
Windows XP Media Center Edition Service Pack 2
Its also a Dell Dimension E310.
Today I got a message from windows update saying that I could install "Windows XP service pack 3", I needed the updates so I updated it. So it asks me to restart my computer for the update to take effect. I do that, but when I restart my computer I can no longer enter windows. The load screen right before the password screen stalls then a blue screen pops up saying:
A Problem... check any new hardware software correctly installed...check for updates...if problems reoccur disable/remove new hardware.
Tech info: *** STOP: 0x000000FC
So I tried going into safe mode and removing the update but I can't enter into safe mode because before it gets to windows the blue screen appears. I have tried every available option in the advanced set up but each time I try to enter windows I get the BSOD.
I also changed my BOOT options so that the BIOS could run off the Disk drive and I could reinstall Windows with my Windows disk but that didn't work either.
Can anyone help me? I'm kinda computer stupid, I understand some stuff but I'm not advanced so please explain things.
Any help would be deeply appreciated.

Hello guys, I have purchased 1 GB ram and installed it on my computer. Before that my computer was running with only 1 GB of ram. After installing this another 1 GB ram, My computer is showing Blue Screen Of Death 4-6 Times in the 1 Hour. I can't work properly. Please advise me. Sorry for my English. I hope you can understand.

A:About Blue Screen of death.

Remove the ram and find and upload the DMP files as describes below
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.
Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

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:

* 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:

* 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.

First, and I'm pretty sure this is the culprit, uninstall Gigabyte EasyTune6. After you are done installing, pull up the search dialog and search for GDRV.sys and ensure that it is also gone, if not, delete it.

Second, AVG can cause system instability. Please remove it and install Microsoft Security Essentials, at least until we are done with testing.

Third, Update your BIOS, you are on revision F1. BIOS updates often address stability issues. If you chose to update your BIOS, you do so at your own risk.

Fourth, if all else fails, Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try if you need any help with the steps listed, please let us know. Do one step at a time and take note of system behavior.

Ok, I know very little about computers. I have this stupid Dell laptop that is always giving me problems. Is Dell supposed to be good? Cuz it's not! Anyway, when I tried to turn it on yesterday, I couldn't get the power to come on. I left it alone for a while and then I turned it on again. It finally came up with a black screen that said something like there was a power failure the last time windows closed or something. It asked me if I wanted to boot up normally or in safe mode or the last known good settings. So I picked normal. Then it went to the blue screen with this error:

STOP: c0000218 Registry File Failure
The registry cannot load the hive (file)\system root\system32\config\software
or it's log or alternate
It is corrupt, absent or not writable
Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or tech support group for further assistance

uhhh....I'm not really computer saavy, but.... Physical memory dump? That can't be good. Can anyone tell me what I should do? If my computer is toast, is it possible to get files off my hard drive? Please help!

A:Oh no, It's the blue screen of death

It's a bad error. It is either soved by doing a windows "reinstall" -- not necessarily a "clean" install -- or by using the recovery console to do a 3 part recovery. If you do a reinstall first -- this cannot be done.

If you do this improperly -- you will lose data if you still need to do a reinstall. If it does not work and you want to do a reinstall -- you must copy back the registry hives you backed up to their original "system" folder.

Here are the directions:

If you do not have an XP CD download from Elvandil's post here:

Unzip and burn the cmdcon.iso file to CD. With Nero or Roxio you should only need to "open" the file and it will start the burner's ISO burning program.

DeepBurner can also be used to burn ISO files, I recommend the &#8220;portable&#8221; version:
Once that is done, you need to boot with either that or the Home XP CD to the Recovery Console. You may need to ensure that the CD drive is the first boot drive in the BIOS setup if it just boots to the same screen. Setup is accessed by looking for the key to press on the first data you see on the screen -- often F2

Directions are given here:

There are several things to note about this operation.

i just came home from being outside and my sisters were just finished watching free full shows on i popped in the sims 2 DVD and my first blue screen of death popped up....

here is the exact message:

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

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

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing the video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as cahing or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical information:

*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0x0000005, 0x804E057d, 0xf3D8A8C8, 0x00000000)

I have been trying to troubleshoot my desktop for a few months now with Dell and they've basically told me "we've done everything we can, sorry." I turn to you in hopes that you might be able to help with the problems.

Relatively, I have a brand new computer (less than a year old). It's a Dell Inspiron 518 and I'm running Vista SP1 on it.

The computer randomly will freeze up and/or shut down on me for no good reason. Sometimes, it has the blue screen, other times, it just freezes.

This is the most recent blue screen error:

STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x879DFD90, 0x879DFEDC, 0x81E90430)

Anyone have any ideas/suggestions?

Only started happening couple days ago for no reason at all, no pc updates, nothing newly installed, really annoying me due to its frequency. Please help.

Also note that it does not always result in a blue screen sometimes its just crashing stuff with that dont send message.

A:Blue screen of death with the following

Hi, some reasons for blue screens
New hardware - software installed.
Device driver - Video driver - corrupted - faulty.
Faulty Ram - Overheating - Dying hard drive etc.
Run a Mem Test.
You may need to d/load the following using a working computer.
Scroll down to 'Download (Pre-built & ISOs)'
'Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)'

Download the ISO and then burn the ISO to a Cd.
Start the Pc using the Cd and run the memory test overnight or for at least 8 passes.

It is best to run a full scan on individual Ram sticks if you can.
Or run the test but if any errors are shown - then remove all sticks of Ram and test each Ram stick one at a time.

Guide to using Memtest86+
Hard drive test.

If you can check Device Manager
Click Start button >run > type

Check for any yellow exclamation marks.
Drivers may need updating - always go to the manufacturers website for any needed drivers.

Run your Virus Scanner and Spyware Scanner to check for Viruses or Spyware. Then if all comes back clean, I would do a System File Checker Scan. The System File Checker Scan is a utility from Microsoft that scans the critical system files on your computer and checks to make sure that those files are intact and in their original version (as they should be)... if they are not in their original version, then it will replace them with the proper file. You should already have System File Checker on your Computer (it is a standard XP utility)To run System File Checker you will need your Windows Installation disk, then youClick START then RUNThen Type sfc /scannowHope that helps!

My XP computer stopped with a BSOD, but I could still get into Safe mode. After getting there twice and removing an update that I thought caused the problem, I could still not get into normal start of Windows, so I decided to do a repair installation by using my original disc. After going through the procedure, and when windows tried to restart, the BSOD comes back again. I already tried this twice and I don't know what to do anymore. Can you please help???
Please note that I am sending you this message from another machine.


What's the brand name and model name and model number of that computer?


If a repair of Windows XP isn't working and it's still displaying a BSOD, Windows XP may be too corrupted or damaged and may need a clean reinstall.

There may also be a hardware issue that we're not aware of.

One of my computers got a blue screen of death last night, it said fatal error and said it was doing memory dump, I powered down and back up a couple of times and it said on black screen no OS found. After a few more times it came back after thinking about it for a long time. Its back up right now but the end could be near. I thought the hard drive was making some strange sounds but could not pin point it, this all happened in about 3 minutes. With this little it of information would you say that its probably the hard drive going out? It has been running a little slow at times like when you type the letters might be a tad bit behind showing up as your typing along, this made me think maybe the processor was going out. Right now its running fine and no problems, but I thought I would just prepare for what's coming.

hey can anyone please help me. first of all we were having a game and there was a freeze 2 secs and became very slow then froze and gave me the blue screen.

Thank you

A:Blue screen of death please help

The BSOD is usally caused by routine hardware failure, but not always... The most common is memory, but it can be as simple as an unused floppy drive, any device in a PCI slot that has decided to fail or has had a driver failure. It can be a power supply failure or a worn CPU cooler fan... or any other powered device that requires driver software.
Now that you have ruled out memory, rule out CMOS batter, then each of the other powered conmponents.
You can begin by going to Start->Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager and look for any yellow or red flags. Replace by upgrading any item so marked.

Hi! My pc runs Windows XP Home Edition (service pack 3). Its CPU is an Intel Pentium M 740, 1.73 Ghz.
Today I installed BitDefender antivirus (32 bit) and it removed some virus and other malware that I had on the PC.
A while ago it asked to install new updates and so it did. After that it asked to restart and I let it do so.
Now, it keeps restarting all over and over again. It appear the brand of the pc and then it shows a black screen asking to run Windows normally. When I click "enter" it starts to appear the Windows logo but then it shows the BSOD very quickly, it shuts down then it restarts again.
I already tried running the pc in safe mode but it keeps restarting.
I also tried selecting an option in the safe mode which is "deactivate automatic restart in case of system failure" and it shows the BSOD completely and it says the usual plus to execute CHKDSK /F and the technical info is: ***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xBA4CF528, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

does anyone konw why this is happening?

A:Help Please - Blue Screen of death

At a minimum, please upload the memory dump files and MSINFO32 report:

Upload Dump Files:
Please go to C:\Windows\Minidump and zip up the contents of the folder. Then upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
Left click on the first minidump file.
Hold down the "Shift" key and left click on the last minidump file.
Right click on the blue highlighted area and select "Send to"
Select "Compressed (zipped) folder" and note where the folder is saved.
Upload that .zip file with your next post.

If you have issues with "Access Denied" errors, try copying the files to your desktop and zipping them up from there. If it still won't let you zip them up, post back for further advice.

If you don't have anything in that folder, please check in C:\Windows for a file named MEMORY.DMP. If you find it, zip it up and upload it to a free file hosting service . I recommend Windows Live SkyDrive - or another free, file-hosting service. Then post the link to it in your topic so that we can download it.

Then, follow the directions here to set your system for Minidumps (much smaller than the MEMORY.DMP file): Set MiniDump

Please go to Start and type in "msinfo32.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Save the report as an .nfo file, then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.

If you're having difficulties with the format, please open... Read more
