Blue screen after the computer crashes

original title: BSOD: Blue Screen Of Death

My PC has run completely fine until here that is 2 years from the date of purchase. But now these BSOD concern me. The computer crashes, the graphics have become distorted [I am unable to read anything] and then GRASS comes... I can't read because it is very blurry... Please help me... I can't read the minidump files ' coz I don't know how we debug tools. Please help me!



The first couple of line indicates a problem with your Nvidia video drivers, so that would be the starting point. Download and install a fresh game, update for your system here:

Uninstall the current set through the configuration/programs and features Control Panel, then reboot and install the new set. Do not install only the new on the 'old'.

    Hi KevinRy,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Answers site!

    Unplug all external devices.

    Try to start in safe mode. If you can start in safe mode, and then do a system restore to restore the computer to an earlier point in time.

    Change the recovery settings to disable automatic reboot, if you are able to boot up to the desktop computer:


    Right-click my computerand then click Properties.


    Click the Advanced tab.


    Under Startup and recovery, click settings to open the Startup and recovery dialog box.


    Clear the automatically restart check box, and then click OK many times necessary.


    Restart your computer so that the settings take effect.

    Now, when you are going to close and a fatal error occurs, you will see at least and it won't cause an automatic restart.

    Please reply back with the error message you get because it helps us to resolve the error.

    Kind regards

  • Common blue screen on the computer

    My computer stayed blue screening from time to time when you turn it on, never during use. After the reset of the computer after the screen blue will be 99% of the time blue screen not a second time and will continue to boot normally without any problems. I use Windows 7 Home Premium x 64 bit.

    I made a thread on this before asking for help, here is the link to that:

    Here is a link to my onedrive with files minidump for just last month, the system information report and pilot's report:

    My computer is unmarked, but the motherboard is one:

    ASUS® SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 (DDR3, USB3.0, 6 Gb/s, CrossFireX/Sli)


    No problem on the new thread, I was just curious.

    These 2 were related to corruption pool (memory), probably caused by a driver.  Run the Driver Verifier to find the underlying cause.

    These accidents were related to the corruption of memory (probably caused by a driver).

    Please run these tests to check your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

    If you're overclocking (pushing components beyond their design) return you to default at least until the crash is resolved. If you don't know what it is that you're probably not overclocking.

    Since then, it is more likely to be a pilot run everything first.

  • 8530p blue screen after the awakening of the mode standby.


    Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit. (EDITED)

    A user has a problem as his computer blue screens after he was awakened to "sleep" mode and the other thing is this problem is intermittent.

    The error message I saw said that it was a KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR STOP error message is 0x0000007A and the second parameter was 0xC000009D.

    According to (v = vs. 85) .aspx this type of error indicates - "0xC000009D or STATUS_DEVICE_NOT_CONNECTED, indicates defective wiring or in bulk, termination or that the controller does not see the hard drive."

    Hard disk, I ran the tests integrated in the BIOS, online tool check the system of HP for laptop PC ( and same Seagates own Seatool because there is a Seagate drive in the machine. All these tests said nothing about a problem with the hard drive.

    The online tool, said there is no update available on the BIOS drivers.

    I even had the user to remove the hard drive and put it back to make sure he wasn't a wire loose, bad connection or something like that.

    I phoned helpdesk of HP where I live and I told him this and he said that it is most likely a software problem.

    So so I need help to find out what software might be behind this error.

    I can't provide shocks either, given the error and blue screen also says "dump of physical memory failed with status 0xC0000010.".

    So is it a known software that could be the cause of these problems?

    EDIT: As pointed out by erico, I forgot the information about this operating system. That's why I added this information at the top of my first post.

    Sorry I have not responded earlier.

    It seems that the problem is solved since the user had no blue screens for over a week now.

    The solution was quite simple: reinstall on a new hard drive, even if each test drive, I ran on the subject, said the old drive was ok. This includes BIOS integrated HP and test online, chkdsk in Windows 7 and Seagate tool own Seatool.

    Best regards


  • When I start the system upward, it goes to my logon screen and the computer crashes

    I have a windows vista computer and when I start the SUST until it goes to my login screen, I connect the Welcome screen comes the computer hangs... I do a control-Alt - Delete that returns the desk top

    When you get on the desktop, open the start menu to search msconfig and press ENTER.

    When the popup window appears, it should start under the general tab, and you should see normal startup. For now, set it to start diagnosis, press ok and restart the computer. If it still crashes, then replace the and set it back to normal startup, as something else is causing this problem.

    If she does not hang, and then back up the, set back to normal and this time go to the Startup tab. The list is all the things that are set to start when you start your computer. One of them is causing the computer to crash.

    If you have an idea that it might be that you can deselect it, apply, then reboot and see if it still crashes. Or you could just go in the list, one at the same time turn them off then restart suspended far, so you know which is the cause.

  • Blue screen and the computer goes into a reboot loop after every 15 minutes

    Original title: fix blue screen

    Computer stops automatically at almost every 15 minutes apart, the blue screen appears and is long enough to read the information to fix this.  Computer automatically restarts.

    Hi Lady Cole,.

    a. when the issue occurred?

    b. remember to make changes to your computer before the problem?

    Step 1:

    To disable the automatic restart in case of system error, follow these steps:

    a. restart your computer and start pressing F8 on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured to start to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.

    b. Select disables automatic system failure reboot when the Windows Advanced Options menu is displayed and press ENTER.

    When a problem causes a blue screen of death or another major error that stops the system, the computer restarts automatically. Need to restart manually, and you would be able to note the error message and after return.

    A description of the options to start in Windows XP Mode:

    Step 2:

    Start your machine in safe mode and check if the problem persists.

    Step 3:

    If the problem does not occur in safe mode, I would like you to put your machine in a clean boot State in order to determine whether the problem is caused by a conflict of third party software. Clean boot helps eliminate the conflict of third party software.

    Note : do not forget to restart your machine as usual.

  • A60: Error Message blue screen after the recovery procedure

    I have an A60 and in the course of the last 3 months, I ran the recovery of 10 to 15 times disc, windows installs fine, then a few days later the computer either freezes and gives a blue screen of death, when you try to turn it on, or it turns on and comes up with a message saying "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem" and then completely stops responding , or gives a similar message on the subject of what we call the Dr. Watson debugger core and similarly, unresponsive, now. After trying to format and analysis as well as on my knees and beg the computer please please please work, I'm out of ideas, the hard drive is perhaps the problem? is this a common fault of A60?

    also in a completely different topic, where can I get a new 'c' key, mine keeps falling off the coast for some reason any.


    The blue screen appears usually due to hardware malfunction or bad software.
    If you, I suggest that there could be something wrong with the hardware. Of course there is also something wrong with the HARD drive. But to be 100% sure, you should contact Toshiba service. He can do some diagnostic tests.
    You can also order the additional keys of the Toshiba service partner who is responsible for your country.

  • Satellite P20-771: Error Message blue screen after the reinstallation of the OS

    I have a portable Satellite P20-771 / Pentium 4 3.40 GHz (800/HTT) / XP Home / 17' with nVidia Geo5700 driver.

    As I had a few problems with the software, and I reinstalled everything using the supplied CD. Unfortunately the canned computer malfunction sent me blue screen errors, which are due (it comes when I sumbit error to Microsoft) to device drivers. I've updated everything (I hope) of the Toshiba page, but I'm not an expert and I'm worried that I missed something or that something has not been loaded in the right order or that the parameter is incorrect.

    I thank in advance for your help



    I read in this forum that the Blues screen error message appears due to hardware malfunction or malfunction serious software.
    Usually after installing the new OS since the portable Toshiba Recovery CD should work properly.
    It is not easy to say why the blue screen appears on you laptop.

    After many troubles with Trend Micro and following their instructions, I was to open a session and turn it back on.  However, first disconnect and restart options did not work so I had to cut the power.  When turning it back on, the PC got to a screen with dark blue strips on top and bottom and Microsoft XP logo in the blue middle panel.  After trying various boot options in different modes of security etc and running drive Diagnostics (all past) the PC arrives in the same condition every time.  Dell won't talk to me given that all three of my PC are too old, according to them.  I saw on their site where there was such a problem after the update from another provider visus (AVG) where a CD of XP Windows Setup specific should be used with the Recovery Console to be run.  It's something on the order of what the Trend Micro tech said I should do.  With the exception, since Dell won't talk to me I can't get the CD.  With all three PC I bought home, actually provided with a CD because "your new computer does not require an operating system CD".  How can I get such a CD for XP or is there another way?  SW_Engr

    If you have purchased the Dell with Windows XP (?) computer pre-installed, Microsoft will NOT provide replacement discs.

  • Blue screen after the installation of the Radeon HD 3450 video card driver

    Original title: I get a blue screen on vista after installing the drivers for my radeon HD 3450 graphics card, windows 7 works very well

    Hi all, hoping someone can direct me towards a solution...

    Have a 2.8GHz Celeron RAM 2 GB machine, install videocard ATO Radeon HD 3450 AGP.

    Event name: BlueScreen

    How can I solve this problem?


    References to Vista also apply to Windows 7.

    Updated drivers, BIOS and software control (if any) is a good idea.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
    Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
    Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
    Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - reset after each

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
    presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
    in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW on device at the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER - manually check by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver in the Windows updates,
    This leaves ONE of Windows updates, but it will not install the drivers who are generally older and cause
    questions. If updates offers a new driver and then hide it (right click on it) and then go look for new ones
    manually if you wish.
