First time user, today, the left side of my monitor screens are cut off, can't see the icons and same when I use my email. Can't recall doing anything to cause this misbehavior.View 2 Replies
This has been going on for months, I've even reinstalled Windows 10 a couple of times, the the issue still persists.
Windows 10 64 bit, Radeon HD 7970 Ghz Ed 6gb x2 [crossfire is usually disabled and makes no difference either way], i7 3770, nothing is overclocked, all power settings are disabled and should never sleep or shut down, I'm using a wired internet connection and all wireless is already disabled, I have a SSD that is set to not power down ever, and all HW monitors [CPUz, Open Hardware Monitor, Sapphire Trixx, HWinfo] show everything is running well within acceptable temps and running smoothly with no spikes or issues.
Windows 10 keeps freezing hard on me, but only if I leave it alone for a few minutes. This happens without fail every time I leave the PC alone for more than 10-15 minutes or so.
It will run fine for days, as long as I'm right in front of it and actively doing something on it, playing a game, watching a video, browsing the internet, whatever. As long as there's some kind of active input, it works fine and doesn't freeze.
I step away for a few minutes, and it freezes hard. No input works, not the mouse, not ctrl-alt-del, nothing. I have to hard reset the stupid thing. I go make something to eat and leave the PC running, take the dog out, or go to the bathroom and I come back to a locked up hard frozen PC every time. It never happens when I'm sitting right in front of it and using it, only when I step away for a few minutes to do something and don't make it back within a few minutes.
I've tried all sorts of fixes. Nothing is overclocked, and my GPU driver has had several new versions while this has been going on. This has been a persistent problem for months and I've spent quite a few hours over that time trying to find a fix. I've seen various threads that refer to this issue, and some of them claim to have fixed it, but none of the solutions work for me. Sometimes it'll get better for a short time, the freezes will be less frequent or take a slightly longer time to hit me, but eventually it just goes right back to this behavior again without fail.
I've adjusted all the power settings several different ways, including setting it so everything never shuts down, made sure the HDD is set to not shut down, clean booted with only the essential bare bones Windows programs running at Startup, checked and rechecked every disk using command prompt commands, run in safe mode, scanned for viruses, malware, and adware repeatedly, disabled the wireless card, unplugged every piece of extra hardware, tried several different keyboards and mice, adjusted the Bios settings in various ways having to do with power and the HDD, uninstalled and reinstalled every driver, rolled them back, used administrator privileges to disable and enable various things, disabled and enabled my AV and firewall, uninstalled my AV, reinstalled it again, adjusted every startup option and tweaked the task manager all sorts of different ways, isolated my PC away from the network and internet, my page file is set up properly for a SSD and I've tweaked it several different ways, nothing works.
It still freezes if I step away from it for more than a few minutes no matter what I do, but only if I step away. I can also prevent it from doing so by playing a video and letting it run while I'm away.
If I pause a game or leave one running while I step away from the PC, it freezes as well. Only video seems to prevent it from crashing like this for some reason, Youtube or a video player running an MP4 or MKV file will keep the PC running if I have something playing and step away, but that's the only reliable way I've found to keep it from locking up.
I shouldn't have to do that though, and I inevitably forget and come back to a frozen PC often losing posts, progress, and it's super annoying. I can't figure out what the hell the issue is despite months of on again off again troubleshooting. Playing with the power settings made it get better briefly, but it never fixed the issue and the PC eventually went right back to behaving the same way regardless of how I set my power settings.
This has been going on for months, so it's not hardware failure. If that had been the issue, whatever it was would have long since died. Everything runs perfectly fine while I'm actively using the PC as well.
Near as I can tell, Windows 10 is ignoring some sort of power setting and trying to go into some sort of sleep mode or something even though I have it set to never do that, and it's causing a hard freeze. That's my best guess here given that it only ever happens when the PC is idle and I'm away from it.
I am currently using an older version of CCC for my GPU, but I am aware of it. I have an Oculus Rift DK2 and the latest drivers do not work with it. They are intentionally rolled back currently and I have already tried the newest drivers. They don't change anything and the PC still freezes if left alone even with the newest Crimson Drivers from AMD.
This is super frustrating and I'm at a bit of a loss here about what to do. Nothing has worked, not even a clean install of Windows 10 with everything wiped from the drive. It persists and refuses to stay running if left idle too long no matter what I do. My PC works, but I can't leave it to download anything over a long period of time or pause a game to go do something.

I'm experiencing constant blue screens on my new windows 10 pc.
The error says "KERNEL_AUTO_BOOST_LOCK_ACQUISITION_WITH_IRQL" and it keeps crashing every time i try to switch on.
So I'm having a strange problem on my computer that I can't seem to fix. Youtube videos will not play after being left idle, on the videobar, it will show that the video is loading, but it wont play even if it says it is. I can't reinstall windows because I am dualbooting linux and I don't have the Windows bootloader to go into Recovery options, and even if I could, I don't want to uninstall Linux because it's fun to have another OS to use.
EDIT: I can fix it after restarting, but I've been doing that solution for days and it is annoying. It also affects all browsers. For example. if it happens in Chrome, I cant watch videos in Firefox
Every time I go and leave the PC running in less than 5 mins ill come back and my cursor is stuttering and it won't allow me to click on anything even though I can move the cursor.View 1 Replies
Here are minidumps of the past several bluescreens, and a full memory dump of the most recent one. I've been getting these for various reasons - I already fixed a few problems with programs chewing up hard disk and causing crashes due to this, but I recently started getting them again at random times and I can't figure out the root cause. Attached is the official folder of stuff from the tool. The event log will include additional unexpected power losses because occasionally it completely freezes and I have to hard reset. I'm hoping it's not hard-drive failure because it often fails for different reasons.View 9 Replies
I was having BSODs all throughout December. The problem seemed to be fixed when I didn't have a crash for 10 days, and now it crashes frequently. I'm worried there might be a new issue.

The last two days I have been experiencing with Windows 10 several blue screens (CRITICAL PROCESS DIED). This happened while using Reason 8 (music production program), while listening to music, while playing dota 2 (several times here) and when turning on the laptop...
Several weeks ago I downloaded Windows 10, before this I had Windows 8 and didn't ever have this problem...
Getting random blue screens i can't seem to find the solution its not hardware as i have tested them and i think it is software based.View 9 Replies
so after countless fresh installs and cleaning and checking my hardware, i am still getting blue screens. i have seen "PAGE FAULT IN NON-PAGE AREA" and "MEMORY MANAGEMENT" and "IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL". maybe there have been others but these are the main bsod's. These bsod's sometimes follow my web browser crashing. Other times, the blue screens come out of nowhere. on a side note, the flash player and adBlock software sometimes crash. Also sometimes chrome just says the "aw snap" page and i have to refresh multiple times for it to work. if it doesnt work, then what usually follows is one of the BSOD's above.
None of the blue screens have error codes, just the names. And actually as i was typing the last sentence, my pc froze, then resumed, then instantly started lagging in my keystrokes, then gave me the PAGE FAULT blue screen above. my last fresh install was going very well until i downloaded and started the install wizard for the Logitech Gaming App for my logitech g930 mic. after i accepted the terms and went to the next page to choose file location, this all started and wont stop. just like the other fresh installs. but this is the first time i went long without problems.
I forgot to add that crashes also SOMETIMES instantly happen when i try to download games, update games, or install directx and things of the like for my games
A new BSOD i have never seen before just occurred while i was browsing my files. "DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION"
Link to 5 dmp files (all after bsod's)URL....
Another crash. "KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE"
So today i suddenly got a bluescreen but thought it wasn't anything special so I continued using my pc.
A few hours later my PC shut down and when I try to turn it on it either instantly reboots after i get to the login screen. When it restarts it has had these messages:
attempted execute of noexecute memory ntfs sys
So I upgraded windows 10 from win 7 this summer, and it's been bugging since the beginning. Small things like when I am at the login screen I don't see that I write anything and when in windows and u press the windows key, under the "most used" apps there is nothing shown even tho if i click on the area different apps will launch.. So visual bugs I've had since I did the install. Today my computer crashed and I haven't been able to log in since.
My specs are:
I have overclocked the CPU to 4.3k.
So the Windows logo launches, but before I get to the login screen I get bluescreen with the smiley, and the error WHEA_uncorrectable_error. I changed my CPU to stock settings, so no more overclock. This time I get another error. Machine_check_exception..
I test overclock vs stock settings over and over, and always get the different errors depending on which option I use.
After a few crashes on overclock, I get the option to launch in Safe Mode. This works. Other options "search for problems with windows" (or smth like that I dont have english client) does NOT work. Choosing the option to remove all programs but save files also does NOT work.
I have changed position of my RAM and tried stock and overclock CPU settings without any difference. I have run windows 10 RAM test without any problems.
I have tried to reinstall windows 7 (since I have that on disc) but I get bluescreen every time I try (dont know which error code I get here)
Summary: WHEA_uncorrectable_error or machine_check_expcetion errors when launching windows, depending on if CPU is clocked or not. RAM works fine. Safe Mode windows works. Blue screen when trying to install windows 7
I had a power outage a few days ago, and now my Windows 10 Pro has random Blue Screen problems.
My system was running fine before, did the Windows 10 Upgrade from Windows 8.1 Pro no problem.
I'm pretty sure the outage stopped my machine and potentially corrupted files.
I just happened to have new ram for the machine that I hadn't installed yet, so I put that in just to make sure my RAM was good.
The Blue Screens happen at random times, even when I haven't touched the machine after reboot. It will just blue screen again after a few minutes to a couple of hours.
I have the Samsung XP941 and ASRock Z97 Extreeme 9 Motherboard.
I'm hoping it hasn't damaged my Samsung card/HD.
It's hard to tell anything with that M.2 SSD drive.
No real diagnostic software or firmware stuff from Samsung anyways.
So this is not my personal computer, but this is my mom's computer. Its an HP Slimline Desktop computer, not sure about the exact model but it is running with an AMD Athlon X2 B24, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, AMD R5 240 and a Corsair Neutron 120GB SSD.
Everything was working fine when it was running a legitimate OEM copy of Windows 7 Home. However, after the Windows 10 upgrade process, it got stuck in "Welcome Back" Screen and she told me after she clicked "Next" the cursor started spinning, and it rebooted. Now after checking it, Windows wouldn't load to the desktop, it would just go on a bootloop and blue screens.
She didn't back anything up before the upgrade. I do not know what to do.
Rig only a few weeks old and I noticed for the second time now when my computer is left alone for awhile it acts like it's in sleep mode but mouse and keyboard don't seem to be waking it. I fixed it last time by just restarting computer...View 1 Replies
I have had a number of blue screens over the last few months, typically occurring a few times a week, and mostly displaying a different error each time. I have noticed it typically happens while on YouTube, gaming, or video editing. I ran Memtest for 3 passes with no errors. Also, I have tried to run driver verifier, but that just resulted in an infinite restart loop (no blue screens) that finally ended after seeing the error below, and I was able to disable driver verifier in safe mode.
I think the graphics card may be causing the issue as I have also noticed frequent game crashes and video corruption when watching movies. I tried reinstalling the graphics card driver however that didn't fix the issue. Should I replace my graphics card or is there another solution?
Essentially, ever since I upgraded, my computer (which has had its issues in the past, admittedly) has been crashing repeatedly, multiple times per day, exact amount varying with what I'm doing. The most common error according to WhoCrashed is Video_TDR_ERROR, followed by DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION, and HAL_INITIALIZATION_FAILED.
I've noticed it crashes more often when playing a flash video or similar streaming, followed by media players, and then even sometimes when just browsing the web. The majority of the time, it will freeze first, repeating a sound loop varying from a split second to a full second or so until it finally bluescreens.
I've taken the following steps so far to try fixing it, after some google searching:
*Rolling back Nvidia drivers to .30
*Completely removing the nvidia drivers with the uninstaller utility, and then reinstalling them again
*Reinstalling sound drivers and wifi drivers.
*SFC checks, and DISM even when nothing was found
*Hard drive repair (Check disk and seatools)
But no luck so far. I'm assuming it's driver/software related based on what I know of the errors and the timing of it all.
As a side note, I can't change back to 7 right now, it's a long story that basically comes down to the files getting deleted when they shouldn't have been. I'd also prefer to avoid Restoring, as that removes all programs (Effectively, I don't have any from the Store), which defeats the purpose of upgrading instead of doing a clean install, unless someone knows of a 'repair' installation option like Windows 7 had, that keeps ALL programs installed, but I can't find anything like that.

My system had 2 blue screen the past few weeks, so I decided to try to check for eventual hardware and software problems, I started by running a stress test with ROG realbench since my CPU is overclocked, it gave me an error already(program stopped working), so after doing more tweaking(increasing voltage), then I finally put back the default speed because it wouldn't even start, although at the beginning it crashed right away when I clicked start, and after putting more voltage, it starts and works for a bit and then the PC just hangs, and it still does it at stock speed.. which is quite weird ! it also did it with cinebench, but the strange things is I played numerous hours of starcraft 2 without problem, also I wasn't doing anything when the blue screens happened.
I ran a windows memory test, no errors detected (haven't ran memtest though..) I also did a sfc /scannow and it didn't detected anything wrong.. I'm starting to think it's more related to windows than hardware.
I'll put a screenshot of the past blue screens :
My laptop, an Acer, has been freezing multiple times a day recently. Sometimes I get a blue screen eventually that tells me there's been a WHEA error, sometimes none of that. Yesterday, I kept staring at the screen for a while instead of restarting, and eventually it recovered. I could see the processor activity climb to 100%, and that interrupts claimed up to 14% of the activity. Afterwards, the network adapter (Qualcomm Atheros AR956x) was turned off, apparently because of a 'code 12' - 'insufficient available resources'.
That problem was only resolved after a restart. When I shut the computer down, I got a screen telling the computer was being 'prepared' for a long time - sometimes I also see a blue screen showing the installation of updates at start-up, even if none were waiting to be installed. The drivers for the network adapter are up to date, version 10.0.0.318 (apparently dating from May 2015). I'm quite sure this is a software issue - 'chkdsk' doesn't find any problems, nor does 'sfc /scannow'. And a friend of mine with an Apple laptop running Windows 10 (we've never exchanged USB sticks or anything) has exactly the same problem since installing Windows 10 (different network adapter however, and seems to have improved recently).
My computer is crashing constantly, and its gotten to a point where its just very hard to use. It sometimes crashes 3 or 4 times a day, with crashes including blue screens, random restarts, complete power offs, and a combination of blue screen and mid blue screen it turns off. I've manually removed software, used malware scanners, cleared data, but nothing so far has worked.
My computer is the CyberPower GUA880, with the single modification of an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics card.
My most common BSOD is CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT
On battery power, my laptop shuts off with no BSOD after 20 minutes of light use (web browsing). Laptop will not restart on battery power - only when plugged in. When restarted (plugged in) the battery level shows 85%.
Laptop diagnostics say the battery is fine - 99% charge capacity. HP diagnostics say the battery is fine.
HP 455 notebook running windows 10 64 bit. When plugged in, the laptop works perfectly. I see kernel power error event 41 task 63
I had the Windows 10 DEV mode, battery died and only had three icons on the screen when it came back on. Tried to press the power button to have the screen turn off, and then it became completely unresponsive. Tried to do a soft reset, made it start vibrating repeatedly and had an entirely black screen or would just continuously restart after the AT&T symbol. Then after that, the screen stopped restarting and gave short repetitive vibrates. Soft reset and hard reset don't work.View 1 Replies
I've been having two issues for the past few weeks. After a while, (it varies time wise) the start menu and search bar become unresponsive and will no longer open. The only way to make them respond again is to restart; however, this comes with another issue. It will hang forever on the "Restarting..." screen unless I do a hard shutdown.
On the other hand, a hardware error keeps appearing and it appears to talk about an Nvidia driver.
After checking the reliability monitor, it shows that I have two critical faults:
I've tried numerous troubleshooting steps, which I will list below, and none of them have provided any lasting results:
Disabling Cortana (worked at first, now the issue is back)A clean install of the latest Nvidia drivers, twice on two separate days (fixed the hardware error for a day, now it's back)sfc /scannow (It shows no integrity violations)Installing any and all windows updates (nada)
I even chatted with a support agent at Microsoft and the only thing he could tell me was that "User Accounts are being corrupted and that Microsoft is researching a fix". I'm confused how User Accounts interfere with the start menu and cause a hardware error. This never happened when I was on Windows 8.1, so I am confused as to what has changed (other than the OS version, of course).
I have a relatively new Dell Inspiron 7000 series (7548). Installed Windows 10 and about 15 seconds after logging in I keep getting an error message about an internal power failure. What an absolute f#$% up. I have never had a problem with the laptop. I tried the Restore System Point option but it says that there aren't any system points saved.View 9 Replies
After upgrade from windows 7 everything works properly. After o while it was not possible to open the START MENY by left click the windows 10 icon in the lower left corner. Right click works ok. What is the reason to that?View 1 Replies
