BSOD starting games, error 0x0000009F(not only during games) and 0x00000116

Q: BSOD starting games, error 0x0000009F(not only during games) and 0x00000116

Hi,

I started getting BSOD in August, but I fixed it on Sept 9th by updating my ethernet card. And my computer worked fine until an unexpected shutdown last night which was followed by a bunch of 0x9F problems, then 0x116 when I started up any game. I already did a disk check with /f and /r, and sfc /scannow. I also "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" error in Windows 7 or Windows Vista did this in which I changed the TdrDelay to 8. I had the latest graphic driver, but I went back a version of the driver to see if that solved anything, but it didnt. Attached is a couple of my blue screen reports. Any help is appreciated!

Specs:
? Windows 7 Home Premium x64 (original OS installed)
? It came preinstalled but in December I had to replace the HDD cuz it was failing so I installed it through a disk on my current SSD
? Approximate age of system (hardware): 3 years
? Approximate age of OS installation (if you know): 9ish months
? Have you re-installed the OS?: not for this problem

? CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3720QM CPU @ 2.60GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.6GHz
? Video Card: nVidia GeForce GTX 675M
? MotherBoard: MS-1762 BSS-0123456789 REV:1.0
? Power Supply - brand & wattage: Delta Electronics (idk how many watts)

? System Manufacturer : iBuyPower
? Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom) Valkyrie CZ-17
My SSD is: Samsung SSD 840 EVO 500G

Thanks,
Yoshi

Since this thread is hanging on both the BDoS relevance and hardware/software/graphics cards sections I have been trying to decide where I should post it. I've eventually decided to post it in the BDoS section. If users or staff should find this topic inappropriate in this location I'd have it corrected immediately.

I have been getting blue screens related to my video card for quite a while now both when playing a game or simply sitting idle. There are certain things that trigger a bluescreen or a driver failure (i.e. opening MP4 files, starting applications that use DX or OpenGL such as games ect.)

My graphics card is an AMD Radeon HD 5670 with 1024 MB GDDR5 memory. By default my core clock is running a maximum of 775 MHz and my memory clock is running a maximum 1010MHz. I've experienced more system stability and have actually been able to run The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim smoothly by declocking both clocks down by a 100 MHz (675MHz / 910Mhz) for multiple hours but am still experiencing issues and occasional blue screens from session to session (some sessions seem more stable than others). The power supply to the processor is set by default to a minimum of 800 MHz and a maximum of 2800 MHz.

My graphics card drivers are run by Catalyst Control Center 13.12 of which the driver packet version is registered as 13.251-131206a-166389C-ATI. My Direct3D versions is 9.14.10.01001 and my OpenGL version is 6.14.10.12618.

Hi LemonPower.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Yeah it's been doing it every once in a while, usually after a few hours of continuous playing , games it's done it on so far are; Witcher 2 and GTAV. I have a feeling it's either the GPU itself or the beta driver I'm using, but I want to be sure first.

While playing games (NBA 2k13, Minecraft, FIFA 13) I get a BSOD around 10 minutes in. My screen goes black and I have to reboot my PC. When I check what the cause is, the name "dxgkrnl.sys" comes up.

Recently started playing Mass Effect 2 it was working fine for the first 30 mins. But when he wakes up and picks up his weapon the screen turns off and its becomes unresponsive and the speakers produce a high pitched sound and sometimes the GPU fan sound like it going at 100%.

This also happens when I play GTA 4 and sometimes it happens when playing Skyrim.

A:BSOD playing games, error 0x00000116

Hi.

If this only happens when playing Mass Effect 2 then this may be a game bug.

Though is always good idea to check your hardware.

Download and install the Driver Sweeper.

Download the most recent software\driver for your NVIDIA .

Uninstall nvidia software\driver,restart in safe mode,run driver sweeper,choose only NVIDIA-Display and clean,restart in normal mode.

Install the new nvidia software\driver,restart.

Update DirectX .
Run the nvidia-video-card-test post here the results.


Run RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Let it run until at least 9 passes are completed, or errors are found (whichever comes first). The longer you run it, the better.

Hello !

I'm Hugo and I got a new PC (15.7.2015). i got this error for the first time like one week after i got the pc.
I fixed it and i've been able to play for one or two weeks, then bsod again. I fixed it by uninstalling and reinstalling nvidia drivers. i tryied 347.88, 353.30, 344.11 and 353.62.
344.11 is the driver i got with my graphic card : Gigabyte GTX 750 2GB.
i played with the 353.30 on the first week and i reinstalled it after i fixed the first time i had the bsod.
Today i'm back from one week of hollidays and i would like to be able to use my computer again !
Before, i was able to play like 5 min (it sometimes crashed on the loading screen of a map but not always) and sometimes like 1 - 2 hours !
Now, once the loading of the map is over, i have a bsod.
I don't have the error written on my screen, i have a colored screen then a reboot, on the desktop windows says to me that i had a bsod
The games i am playing are Counter Strike : Global Offensive, Battlefield 3, Dirty Bomb, it only crash when i am on the map, playing.
I tryied to use photoshop 2 hours ago and I got a bsod too.
That's really rare but sometimes it crash on google chrome, i think it happened like 2 times (i don't have the minidump, i reinstalled windows)

I tryied to :
-Use DDU to do a clean install (i used an unbelivable amount of tutorials on internet)
-Install drivers with and without extra drivers like HD audio, 3d vision etc ...

Greetings,
recenlty i upgraded my pc,i changed everything but the graphic cart.So far so good.I did format and installed win 7 x32 bit first.All worked fine till i started playing games.Then while in games i would get bsod,tried 2-3 games all with the same result.So i started stress testing my hardware.furmark,occt,prime95,hds, all was good.I did format again and installed win 7 x64 now,the problem stayed.Third format i installed win 8,1 not on the ssd on the hdd just to test the problem remains.But now a window pops up that says "display driver stopped responding and has recovered" mostly,it even appeared while i was just browsing.Today after 3 days using win 8,1 i got my first bsod.

P.S i have tried numerous drivers,and various other fixes i saw on the internet no luck.

Built my PC a little under a year ago, and it was working fine with all games until GTA V was released. Ever since I downloaded the driver that was released at the same time as GTA, I've been experiencing crashes whenever I play games (even games that used to run without issue on high settings such as CS:GO can now cause crashes on the lowest setting) where my screen goes black and the last bit of audio that played repeats rapidly and loudly for a few seconds before stopping, at which point all I can do is manually restart my system.

I can't upload the Rar file with my dump info in it as it's too big for the site by 0.04 Mb, if anyone can advise me on files that are safe to remove from it to lower it's size I can upload it

I'm getting blue screens when playing games on steam. The games I've noticed it on are:
Skyrim

According to BlueScreenView the cause for the last few crashes is dxgkrnl.sys, and has previously been atikmpag.sys. As far as I know the drivers for my graphics card and motherboard are up to date, and I'm excluding my Steam folder from F-Secure's real-time scanner.

I keep getting the BSOD error when playing flash games online. I play other games, disk, steam etc. and it seems fine, and Its never happened when not using flash, e.g on the desktop. Im attaching a minidump file so you can have a look at it. Please help. I cant really confirm the flash only part, but it happens fairly soon after I start playing, and it has not happened on any non flash programmes. For example I play skyrim, crysis, AC etc. And they seem ok

Since about a week back I've been getting BSoDs while playing games. I've tested this on Minecraft, MW3 and Batman Arkham City. It is not a BSoD per se, it is simply a blank screen, sometimes with a hint of another colour, although that might just be my imagination. Also, the crashes are not constant, sometimes I can play without any problems for an entire day. I managed to win Arkham City and play a lot of Minecraft after that at the 25th without any problems at all.
In an attempt to find the problem I stress tested my PSU and video card using OCCTP, no errors at all. I've reinstalled my nVidia drivers using the 'Clean install' option while doing so.
I assembled the computer myself about 5 months ago, I also installed the OS at the same time. Since then it has been running flawlessly except for a driver clash I experienced some time back.

PS: The first dump files attached dating back to November are old and can be ignored. The BSoD they are about was caused by a driver clash between ThreatFire and a gaming controller driver I use. I forgot to remove the dump files before uploading the file.

Greetings,

So for a good while these BSOD's dissapeared but are back and now am at ends wit.
About a year ago I had constant BSOD's with any games I played though Warthunder and Warframe gave the biggest guarantee for this , So I figured after reviewing my problem and the info I could find to swap my graphics card so switched from a 680 to 780GTX and that seemed to alleviate the symptoms but as only mere weeks they returned and I decided to visit the store where I buy my gear.

They checked my whole system ran standard benchmarks but also the Warthunder benchmark but it did not BSOD for them at any point, which was not helpful but what was noticed was the CPU heat so we replaced the cooling. To make things more odd though the BSOD's where caused by dxgkrnl.sys, dxgmms1.sys and nvlddmkm.sys they dissapeared for nearly 8 months after replacing the cooling.

So now I am again unable to play certain games as they almost instantly BSOD.
Monitoring my system on my second screen no oddities occurred before the BSOD (HWmonitor) even the temperatures never hit above 65C.
I tried turning off various services, ran CCleaner, Reinstalled Windows, ran Checkdisk, turned off all booting non essential software, I am probably forgetting something but I just can't figure this out.
I think it could be the motherboard or RAM but I most of all suspect a bad power network (seeing as we have light bulbs burn out in mere days).

Hello,
Recently my laptop (Lenovo Y560 w/ ATI mobility HD5730) started getting crashes. It gets BSOD (Error code 0x00000116) on playing videos or games. I can't even open a flash enabled website wthout getting a freeze or BSOD.

Laptop starts normally but once it gets a BSOD ,screen starts showing weird patterns on it and then again crashes just after boot up screen and this goes in a loop until I turn off my laptop and start it again after 5-10 minutes. After which its starts normally without any lines or patterns on screen.
I have already tried reinstalling ATI driver using driversweeper, but it hasn't resolved the problem.

I just want to know whether this is a hardware problem or a software issue.

Dump files and screenshots of screen after getting first BSOD are attached.
They are in this order -
1- BSOD
2- Choice screen
3- Weird alphabets screen that lasts for 2-3 seconds
4- Boot up screen
Thanks in advance

Also can you update the BIOS, from lenovo's site?

BaseBoardManufacturer = Lenovo
BaseBoardProduct = KL3
BaseBoardVersion = Rev 1.0
It seems to be an old laptop .....

BTW, from the pictures it seems to be the GPU might be corrupted, too. If updating the display driver and the BIOS cannot fix the issue, better you take it to a hardware mechanic, as it should be out of warranty I guess.

Hi, I'm having trouble as to what's causing these BSOD's on my computer and how I can fix it.

One of the main things that I've noticed happening that seems to be different is that almost every time that my computer crashes, my video card gets "Error Code 43: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems" and I have to uninstall and reinstall my video card drivers to fix it.

Other than that, I'm somewhat of a novice when it comes to BSOD's and I have a hard time seeing what the problem is. Help would be much appreciated.

I have been having troubles with my Graphics cards ever since I got this computer. Some days it works fine others its a complete disaster. Recently I got a few games and when the games I used to play crashed or whatnot it would just close the game. Now I am getting BSOD and having it reboot my PC. I use Soluto to help me find what what might of caused the problem and this is what is sent to me :

Bug check code: 00000116

Probably caused by: dxgkrnl!TdrResetFromTimeout Driver

The VIDEO_TDR_ERROR bug check has a value of 0x00000116. This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed.

Keep in mind I have two of the same graphics cards. I used to cross-fire but then Realized no games would play with it activated so I disabled them. After a while I tried messing with my setup so I could have three monitor setup ( two monitor and 1 40"HDTV. While im still using only two of the monitors I orignally got my first BSOD when i was trying to play a game on the TV monitor and no longer use the TV.

I am very out of touch with computer skills and I dont know anymore what else I should do to try and fix this problem. Ive thought about getting a new graphics card to try and solve the problem because for the last few years problems only seem to occur with the Card and nothing else but i could find another solution then spending money that would be great. Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I had the BSOD 0x116 a few months ago, but I was able to fix it by updating old drivers. It appeared again today, but after I had a bunch of 0x9F errors. I am unsure as to what/where my problem is. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello,.....

I have a Toshiba L500 laptop with intel GMA4500 HD integrated card, and from about 3 days ago, a BSOD with the error code 0x00000116 started to show up when playing games (I was playing counter strike source, Hitman blood money and flatout 2), i tried downgrading the graphics driver and upgrading it but no good, this did not happen at all before that time, i got the BSOD for twice now and i uploaded the 2 memory dump files in .ZIP attached file, hope you can help me finding the problem, i know that 0x116 is about the timeout of display reset, also i had no new programs installed or new devices installed, thanks.

Re your 116





Quote:
"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

Hi Colaran.

Dont use a BETA display driver.

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

Let us know for any further BSOD after doing it.

It occurs most often while playing certain less graphically intensive games (Mafia II, Overlord II) and almost not at all while playing things like Witcher 2 or LA Noire.

It's a brand new HD 7770 so I'm trying to rule out everything else despite the fact that the BSOD points to atikmpag.sys, especially since this bluescreen issue started after i upgraded to from 32bit to 64bit Windows 7.

Ran furmark for ~30 minutes and the GPU was stable, noticed some very minor artifacts at the beginning of the test (happened once and couldn't reproduce it though) so i suspected it might be because of how the GPU handles the switch from low-performance mode to high performance mode. Forced high performance mode through MSI Afterburner and the issue still occured.

Ran Driver Sweeper and installed the latest drivers from AMD (Catalyst 13.12), still nothing.

Thought it might be a 64 bit compatibility issue with the sound card drivers as well (since it's a pretty shady model) so i did the whole driver sweeper and latest drivers from Creative thing. Didn't work. Note that I'm using this because the onboard Realtek chip stopped working like 5 years ago. I think i fried it messing around at the back panel trying to hook up a TV.

Naturally, I suspected the dodgy Zeppelin RAM (bought it recently along with the videocard) and ran Windows Memory Diagnostic and ran the games only with the Geil RAM as well but the issue still occurred. I wanted to rule them out without wasting hours runnin... Read more

Hi,

I am using an ASUS N56VM, 6 months old, and I am getting regular bsods when playing games.

The bsod occurs randomly after playing for a while, most of the time after 20 minutes, only when the game uses the dedicated graphics card (GT630M). It happens every time in some games, occasionally in others.

It looks like a heat problem, but I am positive that at least in some instances, the GPU wasn't at more than 60C when the bsod occured.

I tried clean re-installations of the Nvidia Drivers several times, first the latest driver, then the previous one, then the last known stable driver (314.22).
I also tried to downclock the GPU through the nvidia performance tool, but the error still comes up.

I am out of ideas, I am willing to try any method, follow any step you can give me, and if I can learn something in the process it's even better.

Thanks for any help you can provide

A:bsod when playing games, 0x00000116 nvkflt.sys

Does the graphics card have a fan on it? If so, make sure it is operating. Also check the area around the card to make sure there is not dust/dirt clogging the area around the card. Also you might want to check this link to see if it helps ya any http://forums.geforce.com

Hello twixa,

For stop 0x116 and stop 0x117, you need to follow STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

But, what I experienced that the latest nvidia driver is somehow problematic in some cases. You may try a rollback to the earlier stable version.
Download and install Driver Fusion.
Reboot the computer in Advanced Boot Options, safe mode. Search Driver Fusion in your start menu, and remove all components of your nVidia display driver.
Boot normally now. Go to Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers, Drivers > Beta and Legacy; search there with your cards particulars for GeForce 306.23 Driver, dated 13.9.2012 and install it.

I have had this issue for a while but only recently did I realise that it has resulted in a BSOD, before I when the display had gone I had just rebooted the machine. However after leaving it for a minute or two it BSOD'd and I finally got to see an error to start debugging this problem!

This error occurs seemingly randomly when I am playing games on my EyeFinity setup (Three Monitors), sometimes I can play a game solidly for 5 hours with no problem. or I can start a game and get this error almost instantly. This has lead me to believe that it isn't an issue with a specific game as it happens with pretty much all of them.

The BSOD is STOP 0x00000116 atikmpag.sys

Attached is the dump from SF_Diagnostic_Tool (What an awesome idea).

And here is my system specs:

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T

I have googled around this and all the solutions seem to vary greatly so I have decided to try here. Thanks a lot for any support it is greatly appreciated!

Hi,

I get a BSOD in P3D and Games when clicking stuff in menus without Overclocking. Never while a stresstest. Prime95 v279 (30min), Furmark (30min) and AIDA64 (8hrs) are all stable. CPU max. Temp below 60?C, GPU max. Temp around 80?C. I have a completely new build. Never had the BSOD while OC, but I didn't really game that much with OC. Specs are in my profile. I checked to have all the latest drivers as good as I could.

I first thought it could be bad RAM, so I ran memtest86 for 12 passes (18,5hrs). It had 0 Errors.
I also reinstalled all Nvidia Grafics Driver but the problem prevails.

I really don't know what I should check next.

If i restart the game instant, i will always get BSOD.
I currently play no other 3D game but WOT. Mostly this PC is used for work.

I already cleaned out any drivers (incl. driver fusion) and reinstalled the whole pack.
I tried the hint from 2 years ago with extracting atikmpag.sys manual and replace them
ofcourse i took the Graphiccard several times out of this slot and pressed it in again

today i got a new hint that was intresting to me with an openGL benchmark (Furmark) who did his job fine without crashing

so what's the issue for this? What can i do?

i hope i attached any usefull informations

Hello and welcome to Sevenforums!

The problem is caused by your graphics driver. Run Display Driver Uninstaller(DDU)
Make sure you tick the Uninstall C:/AMD and C:/NIVIDA folders while you are in DDU when you are done running DDU install your graphics driver again and you should be good to go! This is the guide for DDU: Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling

Remember to remove Catalyst and only install the graphics driver.

The BSODs started when I was playing graphically intensive games (downloaded through Steam, such as Everquest2 or Borderlands2) every so often (Sidebar--I've crashed recently trying to play Dragon Age Origins, a game that I've played previously with no trouble at all on this computer around 2 months back), but now they've gotten to the point where sometimes the computer trying to use Firefox or even just on the log-in screen before I even try entering my password. I've tried to look at the minidump reports and see what's wrong with them via WhoCrashed, but unfortunately it seems that they aren't always created. Especially since I know I've crashed many more times than the minidumps seem to appear.

Also, many times that the computer restarts (either automatically after a crash, a hard restart, or turning on after I shut down the computer) the Bios screen appears automatically. Quite a few times after I select "Save changes and exit" it'll come up with the Bios screen again. Additionally, the Asus loading screen may come up and stay loading for a couple minutes when loading, something which only took a few seconds in the past. There was also one time yesterday after a crash where the sound wouldn't work due to some sort of error.

So long story short, i bought COD:BO2 (no hating) for the holydays, installed with steam without a flaw and when came the time to double-click the game's icon to start playing, my computer BSOD'ed and restarted. I did my own research using bluescreenviewer and found out it was linked to ntoskrnl.exe (full crash report in documents below) driver. I then updated all my drivers but it didn't fix the problem. I tried writing to acer but their customer service was awful and sent me to the game producer.
Meanwhile, my friends started playing a game called Project Blackout and when I downloaded and installed the game the same problem occurred therefore I think i can safely assume my computer is at fault. My computer is relatively and can handle Diablo 3 max graphics (full info in attached documents below). I've read at some places updating my bios will fix the problem but I've also heard it's very risky and I don't have the skills to do such a thing.

Greetings Win7 Forums,

I want to thank you in advance for the support. I'm about ready to melt my PC and sell it for scrap.

I've been running Windows 7 Pro x64 Final since early October (thanks MSDN). This BSOD has been very consistent. System_service_exception .... 0x3b

A:BSOD 0x0000003B when starting games

1 GB system RAM is enough for most latest games. I used to game all the time on spec machine and only 1GB no issues to speak of and great.

If you're overclocking anything, that is your cause.

Update this driver to 2009 or uninstall from the system to test. Uninstalling the motherboard app that installed it is best:

I purchased my computer two months ago and have been having BSOD problems at times. The BSOD only occurs sometimes and only when starting games, such as Battlefield BC2 and Call of Duty MW2. With Battlefield, the game will start and go to the main screen, but when I click on "Log In", BSOD. With MW2, it will begin to start the game then, BSOD. It doesn't do this all the time, just sometimes. I have Norton installed because it is what comes with my ISP. I did uninstall it, but continued to get the BSOD, although it did seem not as often. Here is my system info.. Thank you in advance for any help.

I have recently been getting BSOD and black screens, forcing restarts often on startup of games though they also occur randomly throughout if not on startup. The GPU was no stock in my system, I added it around 2 months after I bought the desktop. There has been a black screen issue since I first installed the GPU although it rarely forced a restart until the last week or so, before this time it also never caused BSOD. The only manual change I have made to my software recently has been an update to the latest beta drivers for my card two days ago, though the problem existed before that as mentioned above. With the aid of a friend I did a clean install of drivers this evening with the intention of ruling out corrupt drivers I believe. All temperatures have been well within the ranges that I'm led to believe are normal. The temperatures as I most often see them are (according to SpeedFan): Temp1 26C, Temp2 31C, CPU 2C, HD 27C, GPU 30C.

I have also collected a WhoCrashed report and have attached it to this post, I hope it is useful. Thank you in advance for any assistance, as you can understand trying to fix this myself with little knowledge has been a little frustrating.

Again, thanks in advance.

PLEASE HELP , after extensive searching I am led to this site to try and sort out my problem

Until recently I have had no problems playing games that I have launched from steam. Only recently have I started to notice that when I launch specific games in my games library the BSOD with the system_service_exception error code 0x0000003b appears, this can be intermittent.

I have installed blue screen view and it seems to indicate that the driver atikmdag.sys and ntoskrnl.exe is causing the issue linked to the ati kernel mode driver and NT kernel and system which are their file names respectively, I have tried reinstalling the new catalyst drivers but this doesnt seem to make any difference. this is as far as I have gone

the minidump is uploded
the age of my system now is approximately 2 and half years - I have also considered updating my motherboard e.g flash bios and update chipset drivers but I do not know if this will make any difference.

Any thoughts or opinions will be greatly appreciated . Thank you

When i start a game, usually wow or league, the game doesnt start. The process stays active and I cant shut it off and a couple of minutes later I get the BSOD with the message driver_power_driver_failure. This can also happen when I shut down the pc or I put it in sleep mode. This doesnt happen all the time, I would say it happens around a third of the time.

The problem started yesterday while I tried to run Counter-Strike Global Offensive by launching it with the ESEA client and got a BSOD.
At first I thought it was a CS:GO related problem as the game is relatively new and there were GPU problems in the past when the game was beta (I have a NVIDIA GTX560M on a Qosmio x775).
Following forums I figured I may have to flash BIOS and update graphics card drivers. However, despite these updates I kept BSOD'ing every time while trying to launch the game.
Taking my research further I realized the computer would crash while starting ANY game. Even opening the NVIDIA client to change 3d settings led to a BSOD. After a lot of frustration and futile updates, I thought perhaps it was an overheating issue and left the laptop off for the night with all USB ports unplugged.

At first, today seemed good since I was able to go through 3d settings in the NVIDIA control panel with no crash. But, while returning to the original game that caused problems (CS:GO), I got a bluescreen again.

I really need to know what is going on as I haven't the faintest clue. I've attached a diagnostic error report of one of the crashes (there have been many) and I am willing to provide any extra information just as long as I get some responses!

Please help me on this and I will shower you with beneficence, goodwill, and many internet points.

A:BSOD 0x0000003B when starting certain games on Win7x64

*SOLVED*

Good evening.

After updating the outdated drivers, I was still getting BSOD 0x3B. I realized it wasn't a bad driver and decided the best route was to test the hardware.

I replaced the RAM sticks and video with known working pieces and the BSOD still appeared. After some thought, I decided to disable all startup items and non-microsoft services. Sure enough, BSOD gone. Turns out it was my firewall, Outpost Firewall Pro 2009, causing the System Service Exception. I've been using their firewall on 32bit for years now without a problem, but apparently their x64 for Win 7 still has some bugs.

I'm just glad this issue is resolved and I can play my games again with the full support of my x64 and Direct X 11.

Hi,
For the last month or so I've been plagued with BSOD's on my laptop. Often these will occur initially when I have a game and a video open at the same time but will rapidly occur in quick succession and variety after this. I've had these issues when Windows 8/8.1/7 have been running on clean installs at alternative times as well as both the latest and manufacturer supplied (HP Pavillion DV6 3139-tx laptop) graphics drivers. I've run memory checks and things come up clear here so I'm starting to run out of ideas about what's going on bar hardware failure.

This all started a month or two ago when I was suddenly having hard locks during the first 2-10 minutes of playing Overwatch. Turns out it wasn't just Overwatch as it also happened a lot in Watch Dogs too. There was no consistency between lock ups. I could be playing for an hour earlier in the day, leave my computer on for awhile, start it back up later and it crashes then. After a restart, it would sometimes crash a second time.

I thought it was a software issue so I reinstalled. This seemed to fix that issue, but I did get another hard lock after about an hour of Watch Dogs. After the reset, I noticed my Audio Service stopped shortly after getting into windows. Thinking it was linked, I downgraded to an older more reliable version of my Logitech G930 drivers. That seemed to fix the audio issue.

The next day is when I ended up getting this BSOD. I think it's all linked to my CPU since it's old as dirt and up until about 6 months ago, I had a motherboard that would kill video cards by either giving too much voltage or too little. Wouldn't doubt that it might have done damage to the CPU.

A:[SOLVED] BSOD 0x0000003B when starting certain games on Win7x64

Interestingly, the debugger cannot identify the symbols for your version of win32k.sys.
Can you think of any reason for this?

If not, then I'd suggest running SFC.EXE /SCANNOW from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt. Please let us know the results of this when it's done.

Please update the Asus programs on your system to the latest Win7 version. The ASIO.sys file on your system dates from 2007.

Other than that there's little evidence of the culprit involved here. I hope that the SFC.EXE thing will fix it enough that we'll be able to start tracking the culprit with the next memory dump file. It's important for us (in this sort of situation) to have all of the minidump files in the C:\Windows\Minidump directory. That will help us to see if there's a pattern to the crashes - and the pattern may lead to the culprit.

A:BSOD While starting games and updating video card driver

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error

If you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps.

If you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider.

This is usually heat related, defective hardware, memory or even processor though it is"possible" that it is driver related (rare).






Quote:
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
Synopsis:

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:

1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.
2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled.
If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.
3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware.
It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.
4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instruct... Read more

Hello, everyone. I just got back to my PC after a my first year of college, and when I first started it up it bluescreened. I didn't manage to catch the error before it rebooted, then changed to a black screen said that there was no hard disk to boot with.
So I turned it off, turned it back on, and it booted just fine. I ran a full system scan with Avast to check for malware, updated some games on Steam, and basically did my best to get my computer up to speed since it had been off for so long (while I did use it during long breaks). While the Avast scan was running I played World of Warcraft for about an hour or two, and bam--another bluescreen. The error message said something along the lines of "Display drivers failed to restart," but again I couldn't catch the rest because it rebooted, coming up with the same black screen as before. So I turned it off.
When I booted it up for a third time Avast opened almost immediately and asked to restart my computer and run a scan of the startup files. So I obliged; it seemed like it scanned my whole system again, which lasted for an hour or two, and it seems like it moved Malwaregen and corrupted files to the chest. When it was done my computer booted normally. I installed some Windows updates and a new Nvidia driver, figuring that something was outdated, and once again started playing World of Warcraft. This time it didn't bluescreen; instead, the screen froze after ten minutes and turned a solid color. My PC rebooted almos... Read more

From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Welcome
Your reports are not definitive and educated guess says that this is the cause of your problem
What is the asushwio.sys file?
Make a system restore point and then uninstall the associated software or update driver.

Hello all,

I recently made a new PC build, everything went fine and all drivers are up to date and the latest. However when playing ANY game in fullscreen i sometimes get a BSOD and if i Alt+Tab our of one it will 90% of the time BSOD. Latest 3b is the BCCode that i get, i have tried sweeping and reinstalling graphics drivers however this did not work. This problem doesn't happen with anything else and does not crash if i play in windowed or border-less, however i use a crossfire setup so i need to use fullscreen to use both GPUs.

Any and all help is appreciated.

Hello, first time poster looking for help as I can't diagnose my issue after trying numerous things. Currently when I play a game the BSOD happens randomly, I can go a whole day without it, or it can happen frequently. It happens the most when I close or exit a game, then it'll kick to a blue screen.

I really appreciate what you guys do and I hope I followed all the instructions right on how to post my logs and stuff, here's the attachment and some basic system specs:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
I have reinstalled to this computer numerous times.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad q9550 @ 2.83 ghz

GPU: Radeon HD 5770

Mem: 4 Gigs of Memory

Motherboard: p5n32-e sli nforce 680i chipset

A:BSOD Playing various games, closing games, no overheating.

Before we can even begin to find the underlying cause you need to update the following drivers. Especially asacpi.sys. Yours is from 2005


Code:
ASACPI.sys 3/27/2005 10:30:36 PM
Lycosa.sys 1/18/2008 4:51:42 AM
nvm62x64.sys 10/17/2008 5:01:06 PM
netr28x.sys 2/25/2009 11:02:09 PM
How To Find Drivers:




Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

My kids tend to play games (Lego Lord of the Rings, Lego Clone Wars, etc) whilst I'm at work and have experienced occasional but repeated BSODs. They always have cooling turned up when playing.

The computer is overclocked but has been since new (with lots of testing via Prime95, FurMark, etc), without any problems when I'm using it. I'm down to figuring there's something my sons are doing or something about the games they're playing that are causing issues.

Any assistance gratefully appreciated.

A:BSOD in various games, error 0x00000124

I know you said you've already done some stress testing but I'd like you to do some more with some recommendations on the amount of time you're testing.
Stress test your CPU with Prime95

I recommend running Prime95 for around 2 hours



   Warning

As with most stress tests your component's temperature will rapidly increase.
It is advised that you download a temperature monitoring program like HWmonitor
Keep an eye on your temperatures and stop the tests if it starts to overheat

Stress test your graphics card with Furmark

I recommend running it for around 30 minutes



   Warning

Furmark will increase the temperature of your GPU rapidly so keep and eye on your temperatures

Memtest86 will test your RAM



   Information

Run Memtest86 for at least 8 passes so we get enough information to confirm that your RAM isn't failing

Run a Disk Check to scan for errors



   Note

Afterwards go into an Elevated Command Prompt (Run as administrator) and type in sfc /scannow
If it finds errors reboot and run the scan two more times

Run SeaTools to see if your HDD or SSD is failing

Post back the results.

A:BSOD error when playing games.

Hi. . .

I took a look at the three dump files that you attached and found the following:

STOP error - 0x0000010e, (0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) with dxgkrnl.sys , a DirectX driver, as the probable cause.

Now, a 0x10e indicates that the video memory manager has encountered a condition that it is unable to recover from. The only parameter of interest is the first 0x2 - An attempt was made to destroy a non-empty process heap. The process running at the time of the BSOD was 3DMark06.exe, by Futuremark Corporation and as you most likely know is for 3d game performance benchmarking purposes. If you have not done so, one solution that I found is to run this program at an Elevated level - right-click and select Run as Administrator.

No dmps included in upload 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.

If you are overclocking STOP
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
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:

Hi all,

After about a week of self diagnosis and doing everything possible, I come to you as my last resort. For the past week and a half, my PC has blue screened while playing pretty much every game I have. It used to do it very infrequently, and started while playing Assassin's Creed III. Since then, it's happened once during BioShock Infinite, and it happens pretty much all the time in Far Cry 3.

So, what have I done? I've cleaned the registry with CCleaner, use a driver cleaner to wipe my nVidia driver installation and reinstall, cleaned out my PC of all dust, made sure the video card was installed properly, etc, etc. I've pretty much done everything possible, and I still can't really come to a solid conclusion.

So, here I am, humbled and broken asking for help from those far more knowledgeable than I. My dump file from your wonderful Windows 7 diagnostic tool is below. If you could look through that and find something, anything, that could be causing this, I will be forever in your debt.

Thanks! (Oh, and you can find all my specs in my profile).

Hey so starting a couple days ago, I've been experiencing repeated BSOD's and/or game crashes while playing pretty much anything (League of Legends, Dishonored, Bioshock, etc). I've tried completly removing my graphics drivers and installing the newest ones, but nothing seems to matter. I'll start playing, and it will work for 5-15 minutes before I either get a BSOD or the game simply crashes, booting me to windows desktop without so much as an error message. I've also ran gpu and ram stress tests, which did not seem to cause any problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I've ran out of ideas as to what the problem is.

Hello everybody, this is my story :
I bought this laptop 10 months ago, and 3 days ago i start having two bsod's. First time, i had the atikmpag.sys bsod ( "attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed" ) when i was starting games, so i guessed it is because the other vid card did not start ( i have dual graphics ). I reinstalled the Windows, formatted everything, installed new drivers and now I`m receiveing other bsod, sgfxk64.sys with the same message as first bsod ( " attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed " ). Both have the 0x116 tehnical information. I have to mention that i receive this bsod's only if i start playing newer games like DayZ or Counter Strike:Global Offensive. Also, i have to mention that i overclocked the AMD Card to 780mhz core clock and 950 memory clock for 4 months.

My laptop's configuration is the following :
HP Pavilion G6-2303sq
i5-3230M 2.6 Ghz
6GB RAM
Radeon HD 7670M & Intel HD 4000 Graphics

and the OS is Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

I reinstalled the drivers from the internet because this laptop came without any driver dvd, and took me some time to find the amd driver. It could be a driver problem or worse? because my main problem seems to appear when my radeon switches on
I need help. Thanks in advance.

A:BSOD in vid games, error 0x116

Hi kelvingl.

Both the crash dumps are pointing to SMSC WDDM Graphics Display Driver Service (c:\windows\system32\drivers\sgfxk64.sys).

Apparently it is not something that you need. Better you uninstall it.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Let us know the results.

I am pretty sure it must be due to Windows Update (or some hidden auto driver update)
I have been playing sleeping dogs / diablo3 / GW2 / LoL happily,
but since last night, it suddenly freezes or BSOD
i didn't upgrade video driver (GTX560Ti nVidia) since 2.9xx,
when seeing the BSOD, so upgrade the nVidia right away to 3.06.02... no luck

latest nVidia crashes some Windows Update??
all games crashed / freezed / BSOD now...

I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash bec... Read more

Hey guys any help you could give me would be much appreciated this is driving me nuts over here. Anytime I play a game seems to happen with any and all games I have tried I get a BSOD. I might play for an hour or two before it happens, or I might play for 10 to 15 minutes when it happens. Seems random and not so much as if its at a set point and then happening due to something trying to run. I have attached the Zip file for you to take a look and see what you can find.

Much thanks,

I've recently begun getting random crashes while playing games on my PC. At first i never received a BSOD, the PC just froze and restarted but I made sure that the PC didn't automatically restart after a crash and i got a BSOD this time.

I first suspected that high temps were the problem but when i checked them they were fine. I then thought that the PSU might be faulty, but from what I've been able to gather it shouldn't be any problems with that either.

This is my latest dmp file that i received when i played the new Assassins creed game. However i must tell you that the "freeze restarts" have occurred on more games than that, even once while on the desktop after playing a game.

I'd greatly appreciate some support to locate whatever it is that's causing my system to fail all the time.

The crashes are very random, sometimes just a few minutes into gaming and sometimes after several hours. They also seem to occur more often in Assassins Creed as opposed to DayZ. This might have to do something with me using a controller for Assassins Creed. It's a PS3 controller connected to a USB Bluetooth device. I then use motioninjoy's drivers to emulate it as a xbox controller.

Thanks for your time and help!

A:BSOD mostly while playing games, error 0x0000001E

Well, I have to telly ya; that motionjoy driver could very well be the culprit as i did see another thread on these forums with the same or similar issues; and that ended up being the problem. Especially when you are referring to trying to "emulate" a piece of hardware. I dont think doing that usually works very well as the pc/windows platforms are not meant to be played with a console controller per say.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption (probably a driver). Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

Hello,

2 days ago, I had a couple BSOD errors which occurred when playing "Counter-Strike: GO". I figured that they were related to my graphics drivers, and since then have updated them. The BSOD stopped occuring after that.

Today however, a new BSOD error occured, talking about a potential bios issue, however there was no driver listed and no dump was collected after the issue. Because of this I decided to use verifier.exe to figure out which driver caused the issue.

I followed the steps outlined here and my system did indeed bsod upon startup, before even reaching the user screen.

This dump file should be the most recent one, and the one I am having trouble with. The required files are attached.

Thanks,

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

Hi,
I could use a little help here because this is really getting on my nerves.

The problem occurs when i try to run a game. Everything goes smooth to the part when bsod appears, usally after 10-15 minutes, depending on a game im trying.

At first i thought it's video driver that is causing trouble, but after changing several of them the results didn't got any better.

MEM: 4gb (Kingmax 2x1gb + Kingston 2gb) DDR2
VGA: Powercolor HD6850
PU: Chieftec 450w
Sys: Win7 Ultimate x64

What i tried so far:Changing video card drivers (with or without control panel)
Reinstalling a fresh copy of windows 7
BlueScreenViewer shows it's ntoskrnl.exe related
sfc /scannow fixed some errors, but some of them still appear and can not be fixed
memtest86+ 4.20, 6 passes, no errors reported
Video Memory Stress Test v1.7, only one pass, showed no errors
chkdisk displayed some errors i think but they were fixed

I have: Dusted by pc, re sitted ram sticks, re formatted hard drive and re installed windows 7. These have not done anything to fix any of the issues.
Any help would be really appreciated im driving myself crazy trying to find out whats wrong.

I have uploaded 4 dmp files, each with they're own error code and my DxDiag.

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. If empty (or non existent) please look in the following folders. C:\windows (the dmp should be called memory.dmp), and C:\windows\LiveKernelReports\Watchdog.

Hi there,

i hope u can help me with my problem. I got random BSODs while playing games. First i thought of failing hardware, but i did some testing (memtest, dell diagnostics, prime95, furmark, etc) and all finished without having a bluescreen or some other strange behavior..
So i did a clean install of Win8.1 and newest drivers, but the BSODs happened again. I must say i use kind of an unique system configuration and i still have in mind that it could have something todo with that.

Hello everyone. My problems with this BSOD started some weeks ago, and it only happens if im playing games, sometimes I can play for 1-2 days and it won't restart, sometimes it will crash after 2-3 hours, it won't crash if i play 2D games like Brawlhalla for example, but any other 3D game eventually will crash at some point, with showing stripes or black screen, while sound stutters behind and then getting "Hyper Transport Sync Flood Error occured on last boot". My temperatures are 49-50 celsius at load, while in idle 30-35. While i was looking in BlueScreen Viewer, every dump file showed the error was cause by ntskrnl.exe or ntkrnlmp.exe, but the last one that occured today showed ntkrnlmp AND dump_ataport.sys, labeled in red color. I have no idea what is causing this, also it says WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR if i use WhoCrashed. I'm hoping some of more experienced people here will be able to help, cause this is really frustrating :S Thanks in advance!

You are running an Acer Product ID (PID) on an MSI board.
This makes your installation counterfeit.
Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.

OS Build Type: Multiprocessor Free

I keep getting these BSOD's randomly. It's been happening for a while now but it keeps happening more and more. Most of the time while I'm playing CS:S or other games my PC just BSOD's out of nowhere. I can still restart and boot back up but for the last 48 hours or so it continually happens when playing any game at all. I'm rather sure it's not a driver issue with my Graphics card as I've tried using many different versions of the drivers.

I have:
Nvidia gtx 460 SE

Hi I am having issues with certain games. These games include Borderlands 2, Saints row: the third and Warhammer 40k space marine.

I always get the same error on the BSOD which is the 0x00000124 which leads back to ntoskrnl.exe

These bluescreens always come when I boot any of the games, usually about 2-3 seconds after going full screen. I have them all through Steam and i have checked the file integrity on the games, also reinstalled steam to have it check through the DirectX files.

I have also tried to remove my Nvidia drivers and reinstalling them.

I have no issues running other high end games like Crysis 2 maximum ED or Guild Wars 2

I have no clue what to do, since I am not the most experienced when it comes to these things. Anyways I'll attach my system specs the dump file from the BSOD.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Games will have muffled static sound as it crashes to blue screen. Checkdisk doesn't detect anything.

Will occasionally blue screen while idle but crashes normally happen when playing a game.
