BSOD Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool stops at 88% complete

Q: BSOD Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool stops at 88% complete

I have bought a new PC for my wife without OS. It is an Acer N2120G supplied only with FreeDOS on the HD. I have installed Win 7 Pro via a USB flash drive, using the Windows DVD/USB tool from the install DVD without any great difficulty.
Everything works but once she started using it she got crashes about once a day. I tried it myself and get the same problem. At present there isn't anything elaborate installed. Mainly it will be used for browsing and emails and a few of the built in card games. Having installed Win 7 Pro sp1 32bit, I wiped the FreeDOS partition so that is now unallocated empty space.

She had to stop using it so I could check it all. I got advice from the Win 7 Forum Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool stops at 88% complete so I started with simple checks like PW and SFC and they looked fine. I went back to the AMD website and their auto detect told me that I had all the up to date drivers.
Just to be safe, I updated all the drivers from the AMD automatic system. I was especially cautious about the graphics card as I know that can be very sensitive! But the crashes still occurred - maybe after 6 hours - maybe after 6 minutes

I set the PC to run the Memory Diagnostic from Administrative Tools. Just the standard shutdown and run option. it froze at 88% complete. After some hours I gave up and after a reboot, tried again - same freeze but at 21%. Then I tried the memtest86 having downloaded it for recording to a CD. That showed that the memory was OK in all respects.

I have worked my way through the Troubleshooting steps and something else I did made a great improvement. The PC then ran fine without BSOD for four days, but crashed again once the day after. That was about a week ago and some days it is OK and on others it just crashes after a while. Today I switched it on after a three day break and there were some updates to do. I left it unattended and when I looked again after an hour - lo and behold - BSOD again

The last suggestion in the Win 7 Forum was from Gregrocker who wrote "Can you confirm that there is no BSOD dump file being generated? Even if not, post back the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Forums exactly as specified so a fresh set of eyes can look over the problem. Ask the analysts to please see if they can spot the problem in the reports submitted even if absent a dump file."

I cannot find any minidump folder on the PC and there is no memory dump file. So I have followed the BSOD Posting Instructions to use DM Log Collector and the file generated is attached.

Hopefully someone can give me an answer from its contents

Tony

PS I had to restart the PC from BSOD to get the data - as I write this an hour later, it is still sitting there with an innocent look on its normal Desktop Screen

A: BSOD Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool stops at 88% complete

Please make sure your computer is set for Small Memory Dumps Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD Then make sure there is a folder in C:/Windows named Minidump. If not, create one.

Also, check your Windows Updates and make sure there are no recommended or important updates left to run and in the left column look at view update history and see how many have failed.

When you ran memtest did you run this one for 8 complete passes?
Please Run Memtest86+



Information
Please download from this site only http://www.memtest.org/ in the middle of the page are the Download links, you can download the ISO.zip or the Auto USB Flash Drive installer.zip

Extract the Zip file. If you chose the ISO image, burn it to a CD using Windows Disk Image Burner or any Image burner you may have. If you downloaded the Auto USB installer, extract it, insert your USB 2.0 Flash Drive and take note of the drive letter. Run the installer, select the Flash Drive Letter, check the format box and press next. It will install memtest86+ to a flash drive. You can use either V4.20 or V5.01. Boot from your selected media. If you use V5.01 it will tell you to press certain buttons at the start, please press no buttons. The test will begin on it's own and continue to run until you stop it. It needs to run for 8 complete passes or until you receive an error. If you receive an error, stop the test. Even 1 error is a fail. Each pass tests a different part of the ram and each of the 10 tests in each pass tests something different. It takes a minimum of 8 passes to completely test the ram, more passes are better. It is quite a long test and will take several hours depending on how much ram you have. Due to the time length it is best to run overnight. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Also, Please open an elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.

Use the RAM - Test with Memtest86+.

I'd also scan with Malwarebytes, SFC, establish a Clean Boot, and the rest of the steps from Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

Compare the install you did with the perfect install compiled in Clean Reinstall Windows 7. It's always best to delete all partitions during reinstall or if there was a foreign boot agent on the drive as in FreeDOS then I'd wipe it first with Diskpart Clean Command lest that boot code remain on the disk.

Hello,

I recently purchased a Dell Studio 1747 laptop. However, it had numerous issues. I managed to get enough replacement parts for it to finally be fixed, however, I would like to test one of my old memory sticks in Windows 7 Memory Diagnostics to see which one is defective. I had 4 GB of RAM. Surely, both couldn't be, right? I think only one of them was defective. I want to test to see which stick it could be, simple enough, right?

Even simpler question. In the Windows 7 Memory Diagnostic Tool, what is the max amount of RAM it can scan? In Vista/XP it was 4 GB. Is it the same for the Windows 7 version? I am running a 64-bit OS. If not, shall I just remove one of the existing (good) sticks of RAM and replace it with the questionable one and run the test?

I've already ran the test on my new, freshly replaced RAM, which came back all-clear, so, I know any new errors should be attributed to the extra RAM I put in.

Thanks,

Necifix (Or TWISTEDBroly, this SN is old)

I can perform a Standard test without any difficulty. However, when I tried to attempt an Extended test the process halted at about 10% of even the
first test. After about a quarter of an hour it was still at this point so I pressed Esc to cancel the test.
How long would this Extended test normally take ? Was I a little premature in stopping it ?

I scheduled windows to check for memory problems. Then when i restarted windows it was stuck in a loop of checking memory problems. It didnt find any problems. When the test finishes it just starts over. And if i hit exit it just restarts the test. Restarting my computer doesnt help. And i tried pressing F8 to go to safe mode but it wont open it just goes straight to wmd. I found this online which said it would stop it:

The fix should be done on the command line by launching a command prompt as administrator...

bcdedit.exe /bootsequence {current}

Then...

bcdedit.exe /default {current}

But i cant get to command prompt. Also i put my windows disk in that came with my asus computer and i cant access command prompt threw there either. It doesnt even give me the option to repair windows. Just restore. I think if i could make a boot disk to load command prompt i might be able to fix my promble. So if anybody knows how to fix this i would greatly appreciate it. Also restore is NOT an option.

How exactly do I burn the windiag.iso file that mtinst.exe creates to CD? Do I simply use the "burn Iso File" option of my burning software [Nero 6]? Do I rename the file to remove the .iso extension, and then "burn Iso file", as in the instructions for creating slipstreamed installation cds? Do I need to use Nero's "create bootable CD" option and then burn the iso file?

Any advice on how best to use WMDT? MS suggests using the menu options to turn the CPU cache off and to run the "extended memory map" rather than the default standard map.

Hi, I'm new on these forums and this is my first post. Nice to meet you all.

Anyway, I have windows Vista Business and it's my first time switching from Windows XP. I explored most of the OS already and tried out the new features. Here's my problem:

I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool 5 days ago, for the first time. I hit "run diagnostic check on the next reboot" and it scheduled a diagnostic memory check for me.

I know i don't have memory problems but i ran the test anyway. It came back with no errors in my memory. Now I log back into windows after it self-restarts and it tells me that no errors were found. Now all is good, except now every time i reboot, the memory diagnostic tool runs, checking my memory.... it takes 8 minutes if I don't cancel the test myself and it's getting annoying.

Is there anyway to stop this thing from running every time i boot up? The diagnostic test runs after the P.O.S.T. and before Vista begins to load.

here are my machine specs:
Lenovo T61 laptop
Intel Core2Duo 2.4ghz T7700
Nvidia 140m
2gb RAM and 1gb turbocache

A:Memory Diagnostic Tool keeps launching on boot up windows 7

Find out for sure by testing your RAM with memtest 86 for 5-6 passes or overnight to stress it. RAM - Test with Memtest86+

You are testing both the RAM and the slots here. I would also remove the RAM and examine the slots for debris, which is a good time to thoroughly blow out the dust in your PC.

If this doesnt' solve the error message then run SFC -SCANNOW Command .

My laptop (HP Pavilion dv2000) running Vista Premium SP2 has started running really slowly recently and I've been trying to find out why. One of the steps I've taken in trying to detect the issue is running Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool at startup. I ran this test successfully in the Basic Mode which includes MATS+, INVS, and SCHCHR, and when I say successful, I just mean that I don't see any results but the test completed. I tried running the test twice in Standard mode (same tests as basic + LRAND, Stride6, CHCKR3, WMATS+ and WINVC) and my computer powers off abruptly each time before the test even reaches 5% completion in the first run.

A:Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool Powers Off My Laptop

If the computer powers off during the test, try this free memory test:
http://www.carrona.org/memdiag.html (read the details at the link)

If it still shuts off, then you've got a hardware problem. Blow out the vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum cleaner - it'll cause damage) and ensure that the fan is working.

Beyond that, it's gonna require taking the case apart.

Hello all. I'm currently talking to you from Safe Mode in Windows 7 32 bit.

I've been running Windows 7 for quite some time now and I haven't run across any hiccups like with the previous versions of Windows... until now.
I recently bought a copy of Star Craft 2 from Gamestop. Doing this allows you to be in the beta program... so I figured "Oh, good stuff".

I tried to patch the program and I received an error during the patch process. To make a long story short, Blizzard informed me that I should run the Windows 7 memory diagnostic tool to make sure that my RAM wasn't at fault, using the extended test. I figured "Ok, no problem".

I ran the tool, selected "Save work and restart the system".

The tool loads up and starts to run with 1 pass with a "basic" check. I realized after about 10 minutes into the check that I could hit F10 and change the options. I hit F10, changed the test to Extended and hit continue. The screen refreshed VERY slowly with the updated changes, except the progress went from 10% complete to look like "_%" for every spot that could have a % at it.

I thought that was odd, so I hit the Exit button.

The system rebooted.

The system started to hang at the BIOS POST screen a little longer that it usually does... normally it only stays there about 2-3 seconds... it now stays there for around 10-15 seconds.

I was using my computer when the screen just went black. I just tought to myself its probably something wrong with my memory so i ran the Memory Diagnostic Tool ,I picked the first choice that it recommended "Save work and restart the system".

The computer restarted , and the tool started to work after 15-20 minutes it was nearly done 90 somthing % , i just went down stairs to get a drink and when i came backed upstairs i realised that the scanning is at 8% again , I tought maybe thats how it works , scans 2-3 times , i lefted the computer working over the night when i waken up the tool was still working , went to work , came backed and the tool was still working , i just said to myself this has to be wrong , i unpluged the pc left it over the night. Turned it on , the diagnostic tool started itself again , The scan was neraly over when just again i realised that this think goes in infinity. I pressed the " Esc" button as it said to finish but when i press the button the scan just resets and goes from 0% again

It doesnt want to let me run safe mode or anything else , only go to bios set up.

I would really appreciate if you could help me guys, bye

Hello everyone.. Ran across this link

http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp

in another (GASP, CHOKE) forum and thought I'd post it here for review/ comments.

I used the download file to create a boot floppy which runs the diagnostic. You also have the option of burning it to a CD.

One advantage I see over other memory diagnostics I've used, is this one runs it's test sequence (a set of 8) continuously until you stop it. This allows one to run a repeateitive test sequence over an extended period of time (like over night) and have a better chance of detecting an intermittent fault.

I ran the extended test overnight and this morning it had rebooted into Vista. The problem is that there are no results in the toolbar to be viewed as the tutorial said it should be. Where can I view the results of the memory test?

A:Memory Diagnostic Tool Problem

Which memory test, which tool, and which tutorial? I'm presuming that you're using the built in memory tester - and it should've given you a notice if it passed the test or if it found any problems. If you didn't get a message, then I'd suspect that the test terminated abnormally - so you'll have to run the test and see if you can get a message from it (or see when it terminates). This'll involve a lot of boring, staring at the screen - but I've found not evidence of a log file or results page that will be displayed.Here's a link to the BC tutorial on the memory test: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/using-vista-windows-memory-diagnostics-tool/

I am running Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit version on a new computer (30 days old). After experiencing several BSOD, I decided to run a memory diagnostic. However, every time I try to run Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool, it starts up to run it but then I get a screen saying it cannot be run because /boot/memtest.exe is missing or corrupted.

It was suggested by a helpful Microsoft tech from India that I should do a "in-place upgrade" however in following the instructions I got to the point where it asks whether I want to do a Upgrade Install and keep my files, programs, etc. or a Custom (advanced) Install but lose my files, programs, etc. The tech suggested I do the latter but I don't want to have to reinstall everything.

1. Any idea why my memtest.exe is not working?

2. What is the proper way to "rewrite" the OS (and presumably a function version of memtest.exe) onto my hard drive without losing all my data.

A:Missing Vista Memory Diagnostic Tool

The way to do this would be the In Place Upgrade.Why memtest.exe isn't working - most likely because it's either not there, or the path to it is incorrect.My suggestion tho', is to download a free, bootable memory testing utility and leave the system alone (if it's working properly otherwise).

I ran the MdSched.exe file just to test my laptop's RAM (for grins really) and now that I have, MdRes shows up in the system tray. It doesn't consume much memory. I can stop it. But it bugs me that it is there and nowhere can I find out why it appears or how to prevent it from doing so. Startup, HKLM_Run, HKU_Run are where one would normally check for startup processes. It doesn't seem to be a service either. It's not in MSCONFIG and can't run Defender (Vista issue?). I rebooted, shut down and removed my hibernation file and created it anew. I searched in the System Event Log and the only reference was when I initiated MdSched. I am including that.

A:Memory Diagnostic Tool (MDRes) keeps launching on boot up

I gave an aswer which was simple and easy, but then read your post again and saw that your deleted your restore points. This is never suggested. The small space saved does not warrant their removal due to situations, just like this.
Did you try to go to search, notification area, and then untick the service if listed.
In lieu of using a method that would have worked, try this and SFC command.
System Files - SFC Command
Just a wild guess, but if you go to search and type "turn windows features on", if it is there you can untick it.
You could try downloading Winpatrol, the startup items seem to be in more detail than msconfig and you may be able to turn it off from there if it shows.
You can try Process Explorer ( not necessary to download, you can just run it from the site) and see if the process can be killed with that software.

Hi!

The SF Diagnostic Tool couldn?t create the file I guess that you announced would end up at my desktop as expected. The file that you suggest me to compress and deliver as an attachment either were invisible or failed to be created by the SF Diagnostic Tool. If you have any comments of how or why it won?t end up as expected I would be glad to hear suggestions and ideas of how I can fix this as well.

I don?t know if it was a good alternative but I decided to pick up the separate files during the process of the SF Diagnostic Tool one by one and then compress and send them to you in a zip-file. I hope this will work as well and gives a hint of what it is that causes my BSOD.

(I have noticed that BSOD in 90% of the time occurs when I start a render process with Lightwave 3D 9.6 and that it most of the time happens after 20-25 frames. The other times BSOD appears hasn?t got any special connection to any software process that I am aware of.)

Hello.
I've been getting random BSOD. It doesn't seem to be connected to any one program or situation but usually happens when i'm playing games. I built this computer myself:
Asus Sabertooth Z77 MB
Intel i5 3.4Gh
NVidea GTX 560 GPU
8 Gb Ram

I have attached my zip folder for the SF Diagnostic Tool as instructed by a couple other threads on this site.

I don't know if it's related to the BSOD but i also just recently have had games randomly crash on me as well. Starcraft II, League of Legends, Dead Space 1 and 2.
This has all just started happening in the last week. I have had no such problems before then.

I'm sorry if i'm leaving out an important piece of information. Please tell me what you need from my end, and thank you very much for helping me out.

A:Random BSOD, SF Diagnostic tool zip file attached.

Welcome aboard, brook4.

Your crash dumps indicate memory corruption mainly, with mostly a bugcheck 1A.

Bugcheck 1A may occur for a corrupted device driver, too. So, before blaming the RAMs, we want to make it sure that it is not any driver that is causing the crashes. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Depending on this, we will decide our next step.

Got infected with this virus, which looks and acts just like what is described in the Hard Drive Diagnostic Uninstall Guide. On starting up, it starts going through its thing, but when I ctrl-alt-delete, Task Manager button was greyed out! I got it back by booting in safe mode with command prompt and then deleting this from the registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\DisableTskMgr

Now I can ctrl-alt-delete and stop the popups that the malware displays, but then I am just stuck in a blank, black safe mode screen with no taskbar. I can pull up a command prompt, but no idea what to do with it. I can get back into the task manager, but nothing is running in applications, and the list of processes doesn't mean anything to me.

I'm ready to make a log, but not sure how to get the log-making files onto the computer.

After my new build froze up during boot up into Windows 8, I tried to run Windows 8's built-in Windows Memory Diagnostic, extended setting, but it got stuck at 21% of 1st pass (10% overall) after running it overnight (at least 12 hours). I had 4x4GB memory modules, and re-ran this test with only one stick in different slots, all with the same result: it would quickly get to 10% overall complete, then apparently get stuck there. However I noted that I could still access F1 options when it got to 10% complete, so it wasn't frozen, but the system became extremely slow, with the screen displaying text one word at a time.

Some ideas on how to isolate the problem? I wish I could just return both the motherboard and the memory to the store, but there may be a restocking fee involved with the motherboard unless it's defective.

Other information/symptoms:
- I can not run memtest at bootup either by using a DVD/CD or USB key. The motherboard's boot code indicate that it keeps trying to detect the device (DVD drive or USB key) and then gives up. Maybe memtest isn't compatible with this hardware, or I am not configuring it properly, or there are some hardware problems here.

Well, I have dealt with viruses in the past, even the tough ones that had to be removed manually. But this one definitely has been frustrating. I cannot seem to get rid of it, I've hunted down using a few tools and still have had no success. Anti-Virus programs are not picking it up. Now for the most part I'm stopping it from using up my CPU and blocked it from downloading and wasting my bandwidth, but I want to be rid of it. The file executable is named stdrt.exe, it creates a file folder, within Windows/temp, generating a letter/number combo title. I have tried to delete registry keys that referred to the stdrt.exe file and have removed the temp file and killed the stdrt.exe process numerous times with no success. So, I'm posting here today hoping I can receive some help on this matter.

Hi,

I ran Windows Memory Diagnostics multiple times (1GB Ram = 2X512), sometimes it reposrts errors, and sometimes not!

I'm running two OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 64Bit, where I'm encountering bad performance, and Windows 7 32Bit which runs smoothly.

I'm not sure if it's really a memory damage or something else. I upgraded lately my CPU from Intel Pentium 4 506 to Intel Core 2 Duo 7500 (compatible with my mobo), when the BSOD appeared again and again.

Thanks in advance!

Hello TheHero2012, welcome to SF!

For better mem testing use:
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.
Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Hi all,

Ive recently had a BSOD-like crash whilst playing a game (Battlefield Bad Company 2), the monitor simply goes black and then flashes up as recieving "no signal". I then had to restart by holding down the power button and on reboot, chkdsk was recommended.

I started chkdsk but then half way through the computer did the same thing again, and crashed. Eventually after trying many times, I skipped chkdsk and then tried system restore which also crashed several times during. However, the system did somehow restore itself and I thought the issue was gone - however, just to check things I tried running windows memory diagnostic tool and it simply will not complete without doing the same thing again, and crashing half way through.

The computer seems useable, It only seems to crash during a game which leads me to think it could be display related but I have updated all my drivers, ran disk defrag, registry cleaner, virus & malware scanners galore and all turn up nothing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for listening, as my user name reflects I am now into stuff I'm ignorant about.

History.

Had this computer a little over a year, I7 with 16gb of memory, windows 7 ultimate. etc

About a month ago, started seeing BSOD's. The BSOD would normally reflect "Memory Management" as the cause.Then the browsers started crashing, tried chrome, firefox and IE. Have removed and re installed all of them. I continue to received "windows has recovered" screens.

Was reading this thread, attempted the memory test via CD, it ran for several hours (actually alowed it to run all night. When I went to bed it was on test 8, the errors were moving from 0 to 32767. I got up this morning, same numbers, same test #. Seemed like it was stuck on that run even though the error numbers were still changing.

I have down loaded and ran who crashed. It's conclusion is :

A:Browser crashes, windows crashes, memory test won't complete, BSOD

If Memtest86+ is showing up errors, then there are hardware issues present. It's just discerning what hardware is bad. Initial suspect obviously is memory, but the unusual case makes it think it's some logic error like some CPU failure or something. It's also possible that when burning it to CD that the Memtest itself got corrupted somehow (i.e. bad burn).

16 GB is a lot of memory on a consumer motherboard. There is the possibility that while your motherboard can handle 16GB of memory, that 16GB of the actual memory model that you're using may not be supported. Certain configurations of memory can have problematic issues. So while the memory sticks themselves may not be bad, the actual 16GB setup of them may break things.

Have you tested system stability with reduced amount of RAM, like 1/2 sticks of RAM, as well as running Memtest on a couple passes for each separate stick?

Hi guys - New here, but it looks like a great site!
I've been trying to install Acronis True Image Home 2011 but I was/am getting an error message during the install "An error occurred during the installation of assembly 'Microsoft.VC80.CRT,publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b", type="win32.verson="8.0.50727.762".processorArchitecture="x86". Please refer to Help and Support for more information.
I went to Acronis' help and support page and found this in their KB (http://kb.acronis.com/content/14331). So I inserted my Windows 7 (64bit) DVD and booted into it. When I went in, I thought I might as well run the memory diagnostic since I had issues with that recently, and then tried to run the sfc /scannow command. Unfortunately, the command prompt returned a problem to me saying that it cannot run the sfc because I've asked windows to do a repair and that I need to reboot. So I reboot, and ran the memory diagnostic, which returned no problems.
The issue I'm having now is that every time I start windows up, it begins by prompting me to do another Windows Memory Diagnostic (on a black and white screen before Windows boots). How do I stop Windows from wanting to do this every time I turn on my machine? As a result of this, I am unable to run sfc in the DVD booted environment and so can't install the software I wanted to.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this?
Thanks in advance!

Cross check your memory with memtest86 bootable CD for 5-6 passes as it could mean memory problems.

Next, run sfc /scannow to check integrity of System files.

Finally the next best thing before doing a Clean Reinstall is to Repair Install which reinstalls the OS while keeping programs, files and settings in place. However, botched settings can be transferred back in.

Others may have a more specific fix but I wanted to get you started since you've waited long enough.

My Write Error "data" count, for my WDC 600BB, has been at 1 since I purchased the drive.

Recently, after 24 hours of running Window's Memory Diagnostic utility (the most comprehensive scan + no processor cache + extended memory map), I look back and see a radical jump of my "Write Error Rate" data value from 1 to 317:

I hadn't even accessed Windows or even WRITTEN to the disk within the time it took the Write Error count to jump from 1 to 317. How can this be possible??

How can write errors occur without any writing? Memory Diagnostic should only be interfacing between RAM and the CPU.

Thinking it was the app, I let Memory Diagnostic run overnight for 8 hours, and the Write Error count grew 122--now it's 439.

The events of using Windows Memory Diagnostic (my 1st use of it ever) then immediately after getting 317 write errors, then reproducing this same occurrence, these 2 events are surely linked.

Here are some theories I've been given:

1) Replace the drive, it's failing.
2) Some element of some drives in general causes it to spew out write errors after long hours of sitting idle in DOS with zero HDD activity.
3) Computer is overheating because the processor cache was turned off, making it work harder.
4) There's a possibility that when Windows Memory Diagnostic runs, it forces RAM to 'peak' and that would cause the count increase.

Hi Folks,

I just ran Windows Memory Diagnostic (WMD) on my PC and received 173760 WStride-6 errors on one of my 512MB DRAM DIMMs. The other 512MB DRAM DIMM was completely error-free. I've done a search on the internet to find out what these WStride-6 errors mean but I've drawn a blank. The reason I ran the test is that I've been getting errors/reports of "corrupted" images from two different companies' disk imaging software.

Can anyone shed any light on these WStride-6 errors? What causes them and how do I eliminate them?

Any help would be appreciated.

I just ran the extended suite of the Windows Memory Diagnostic trying to figure out why World of Warcraft kept crashing. And test 10/11 the Erand test came back as failed. I have two sticks of Kingston KVR400X64C3A/512 2.6V My mobo is Asrock P4VMB. I'm not a huge techie so I wouldn't be able to pinpoint specifically what's causing this error, maybe you guys can help. If there's any more information needed just say what.

Expert needed. REF: Windows Memory Diagnostic

I copied this from another TechGuy forum, because I realized later that this may be the more appropriate forum for this issue.

---
I'm hoping for an expert's opinion on these several issues. Very sorry to put so many issues into one request, but they are all related to my issues.

1. I am encountering FATAL EXCEPTIONS while playing the game World of Warcraft (WoW).

The game crashes, then reports:

Error #132 (0x85100084) FATAL EXCEPTION
Exeception: 0xC0000005 at 0018:4fe59dda at (memory location): "0x0d007c1c"

I have run Microsoft's Memory Diagnostic tool several times. I've run it in 'normal' and also in 'extended,' yet it reports "passed" on my two strips of (1MB each) System RAM.

My first question is:

Could my problem within the game be with my VIDEO RAM instead of my System RAM? Should I be able to tell by the memory address given in the error message?

Secondly, my other comment is about the Windows Memory Diagnostic....

Hey all,

I've been reading this forum and others for quite some time, trying to figure this out! I'll get right to it:

My computer (see specs below) will freeze without warning and seemingly without provocation. There is no BSOD, no warning or errors to suggest it is about to happen, etc. There does not seem to be a pattern to it; it can happen when I'm surfing the net, writing a word document, editing video footage, or while the computer is just idling. The screen continues to display what was being displayed at the moment it froze. Waiting for it to resolve does nothing. Ctrl-Alt-Del does nothing. Pushing the "caps-lock" on the keyboard does not turn the keyboard light on/off. If my computer was playing music, then the exact tone that was being played at the moment of the freeze continues to play (essentially a buzz coming from my speakers.) The only thing I can to to unlock the computer is doing a hard reset (ie. hold power button for 4 seconds.) I can go days without having the computer freeze, and other times it will happen several times a day.

Here's what I've done so for to try and sort this out:

1- Removed and replaced power source - DID NOT resolve problem (went from 375W to 650 W PS and back again, freezes despite power source)
2- Reinstalled windows 7 64 bit OS onto different HDD and ran the computer w/ fresh install- DID NOT resolve problem

I have a Logitech MX300 with wireless 3 button mouse.
The left, right and scroll wheel work fine, the center button doesn't seem to work at all.
I have the latest version of SetPoint and tried setting it up with different key mappings but to no avail.
I'm not even sure if it's working.

Is there any diagnostic tool that will show me when I push a button that it's being activated?

I first tried to get it to work in WOW(World of Warcraft) but no luck. I then realized it doesn't even seem to work outside the game. I mapped the button to be an 'X' and opened a text file. Pressing the button resulted in no action, no X's.

I'm running Win7 64bit.

Any ideas or info about a tool?

Hi. I have had my PC perfectly running since 2010. I have played all kind of video games with no problem with my GXT 580. Recently I hired and installer to add more ram to my PC and a SSD drive. He tried for a lot of time to install the additional ram and did some stuff on the bios with no avail. He then told me that he was going to leave the PC at that (with the original ram) and installed the SSD. Everything was great and I have been using my PC for almost 6 months without problems. The problems started last week when I decided to play again some video games. Whenever I was playing games (Planet Side 2 or GTAIV) then the infamous BSOD appeared. I think that if I never played any video games (since the new installation) I would have never experience the BSOD. I highly suspect of something the installer did. Please, please help me!! Thank you so very much!!!

Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

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

Hello,If it is one thing that I have noticed from working on Dell computers, it is that most of them use the tools provided by Dell a little differently from model to model. Especially if your PC is a few years old. You may need to insert one of the disks that came with your PC, if you have one that is a couple of years old. The newer Dell's don't come with any of the disks unless you beg them, and pay $10.Most of the newer Dell's that have the diagnostics onboard, are generally accessed like this.1. Turn on (or restart) your computer.2. When the DELL? logo appears, press F12 immediately.3. When the boot device list appears, highlight Boot to Utility Partition and press Enter.4.

I've experienced some strange events on my computer and I thought the first thing I'd do is run some disk diagnositc tools. I have five physical disks:
C: system/program disk
D: backup of C
E: data disk
F: backup of E
G: Spare disk ... using as 2nd backup of C

Since C & D are Western Digital devices, I downloaded one of their LifeGuard Diagnostics: DLGDIAG for Windows, and ran the "Extended Test" against C, D, and G. All passed. The control panel says that SMART status is not available -- I forgot how to turn that on (as far as I know, it should work with all five drives).

Any hints on a more demanding disk test that would not wipe the disk clean ... I do not want to have to reinstall my software because of the test. For what it is worth, I'm using Acronis True Image to make image copies of C to D and G.

Suggestions appreciated!

I'm trying to augment the HP USB 3-in-1 diagnostic tool, which also includes the ability to update the BIOS on any machine.  I've figured out that the .BIN file is the BIOS update file and to put it in the \Hewlett-Packard\BIOS\New folder to allow machines to be updated.  However, when I tried to update a HP EliteBook 8540w, it didn't work, giving me an error message of "Signature file not found." Since I'm able to update other HP systems (dc7800, EliteDesk 800 G1, ProDesk 600 G1, etc.) by putting just the .BIN file on the USB drive and selecting the update BIOS option from the BIOS, I figure it would also work using the HP 3-in-1 diagnostic tool.  Apparently, the 3-in-1 tool uses some form of CRC check to validate the BIOS file first.  The problem is, I don't know for which file the tool is looking, so I'm stuck. Does anyone know the file structure of the BIOS section of the 3-in-1 diagnostic tool?  I need to know what files need to be put in what locations in order for the BIOS update function to work correctly.  Any help which is provided is greatly appreciated. Thanks,Timothy

Hello,

I have been downloading just about every diagnostic tool that I could find on Cnet, however none of them produce an error report that I can see so far. All the tools tell me what I have on my system, but what I want is a thorough analysis tool that will tell me what is wrong with my system. Does such a thing exist?

The problem I have is that my systems works ok, on a very basic level, like for tv streaming, internet and MS office. But not for anything that requires any degree of advanced graphics, even with old simple games.

I have no idea what is wrong and it is annoying because I cannot use my Steam account anymore!

Hi, hp Pavilion p7 1010, 64 bit, Windows 10 home edition.   My desktop is running perfectly except for this problem. For years I have had the hp Hardware Diagnostic tool on my PC.   Recently, it got uninstalled somehow.  I have unsuccessfully tried to re-install it and I keep getting this message: 1.  Hardware Diagnostic Tool will be installed in an UEFI partition on the hard drive.2.  HP Tools Partition cannot be found.3.  main drive already has 4 partitions.  Additional partitions cannot be created.4.  Error 1722- problem with Windows installer package. The download then stops and does not complete.   Over 3/4 of my C: drive is empty.   I don't understand why this program that was installed and worked for years, somehow disappeared and now will not re-install as it seems to think there is not enough room for this file??  Can you off me a suggestion as to how to reinstall this program.  I like to run this about once a month to check on the over functioning of my PC.Thank you,beachguy
