I've been getting a pretty constant BSOD and I'm pretty stumped. It goes into it for no apparent reason usually within 5-20 minutes of using the computer making it completely unusable. I've done every anti virus scan, uninstalled the video drivers and reupdated ...and it hasnt done shit. The computer even crashes in safe mode . I've done chkdisk, various other scans and im coming up with nothing. It says to disable shadowing and cacheing in the BIOS but I can't even access that on the startup anymore. Though at the same time the feature to see if your hardware is okay on startup (forget what its called) makes it seem like there is nothing specifically wrong with my computer. The google searches i've made are too specific to each individuals case and a lot of times it goes unresolved.

The error is 1033 with the bc code 1e. I downloaded a program called bluescreen view and it says the "bug check string " is always KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and its related to the file ntoskrnl.exe or storport.sys every time. I'm running windows 7, not doing any hardcore gaming or watching HD videos or anything. Haven't made any changes lately and nothing out of the ordinary so I don't see what the problem is here...

Any useful input would be appreciated.

Dig in and look for something called Sys32. If you have it, delete it immediately. Then save up and buy a Mac.

I really am startin to think about just buying a mac the next time I get a computer. I'm getting really sick of this bullshit. Almost every year my hard drive gets wiped, or I get some crippling viruses or BSOD's that make me have to do a factory restore. It's ridiculous.

Id test RAM first, but it surely sounds like some sort of hardware problem.

Usually if its sporadic or random in nature, it's hardware.

Lets try memtest. a RAM checker. Download the ISO burn it to CD

http://www.memtest.org/download/4.20/memtest86+-4.20.iso.zip


and BTW, if this is your issue, it has nothing to do with the fact that you have a PC.

This seems archaic having to put it on cd.
Is there another program or a link where its not an ISO file?

Also I would say that its fairly random. But not COMPLETELY random.
It seems to crash while using up more CPU than not.
For example, last night the computer was left of with the blank desktop and it stayed on all night.
It's not like it crashes while im trying to play a game or anything, but it does seem to crash while im doing more multi tasking or watching a video.

I won't be back until Tuesday so if anyone can help him, that would be great.

Is your computer under warranty?
Is it Nvidia or ATI card?
Is it a after market card?
How much RAM?
Is it new RAM?
Can you take your harddrive out and usb it to another computer?
Is windows update set for automatic?

Can you post the contents of:
C:\Windows\Minidump\
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315263


SFC /SCANNOW
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ht/sfc-scannow.htm

test memory with Windows Memory Diagnostic or memtest86

It can be helpful to use Driver Verifier. To enable Driver Verifier... start->verifier.exe->OK->Create standard settings- >Next->select driver names from a list->Next->sort by Provider->select all non-Microsoft drivers->Finish, and OK your way out of the dialog.

Not under warranty. It's a shitty ass integrated Nvidia Geforce 9100.
I don't know how to take anything apart really besides to blow out the dust, but i do plan on backing this hard drive up.
I haven't used windows update but thats looking like one of the last options.

I did this one, didn't do anything.

I'll try the other two things you said and ill post a screen of the minidump.

Wait a minute...

I did that verifier thing and this sounds awfully shady...i'm sure its at least related to this either way...

the top 3 from an unknown publisher are dump_dumpdisk.sys, dump_dumpfve.sys, and dump_nvstor64.sys.
Not seeing much when i google these.

Have you changed any hardware before this started?

How long have mobo and ram worked together? Sometimes certain modules dont play well in some boards and the crashing wont be predictable . If you have more than one stick try taking one out at a time to see of problem persists, of course swap in the stick you took out to see if it crashes too.

Can you substitute the power supply? The power supply, mobo and HD are the most likely items to fail under normal conditions. Obviously you can drop in any newer power supply to test but the mobo will need to be same chipset to swap easily, otherwise a windows reinstall would be needed as with a hd change.

BSOD could be caused by bad drivers.
Have you recently updated any hardware drivers?
What's the make and model of your laptop? Can you get to the site of the company that built it? Does it have any software updates that need addressing?
Seriously, do you go to shady websites without a decent browser and plugins like noscript or another script blocker?

Also: Calm the fuck down. Stop it with the "I'm going to buy a Mac next time" talk. You'll pay 3x the cost up front for the same build, and then you'll pay for Apple Support to fix the hard drive after you've gone and deleted it.

Alright well that memtest ran and it detected no problems with the RAM or anything...
As far as porn goes i stick with the regular tube sites...This doesn't appear to be a virus issue though.

I'm not that crafty with the actual taking apart of computers and I don't have any extra parts to mess with really.
It doesn't appear to be a problem with the internal stuff though, because I've ran like 3 tests and its not coming up with anything.

.
This is what I'm thinking. I updated the video driver not too long ago, but its odd that it wod start having problems like 2 weeks later. I have since uninstalled it, and updated it several times. I did notice some of the parts of the old drivers were still listed under the uninstall thing in the control panel, but when i hit uninstall it said it couldnt be uninstalled, which i thought was odd.

The only other change i can think of was it did say it updated adobe flash the day it started crashing. But i have since then unistalled and reinstalled that too.

The computer is a desktop, its an HP p6320y.

Do you have your Win 7 disc? Boot to it and run a repair.
I don't believe I do. I'll look around but I'm pretty sure I didn't get one.


I appreciate all the help from everyone by the way, this is great.

Contents of the latest file.
Is windows update turned automatic, prompt or off? Turn off.

Update has been off, never turned on. I'm thinking thats about the only thing left. To get the major updates.
That has helped me with a problem or two before.


Do you have another computer?

My laptop battery actually broke the day before this one lolz, so no.

Open your computer case while it is off and you are grounded with all the USB cords taken out. Check the inside near the fan over the processor. Is it covered in a lot dust? How hot is the room your computer is located in? If it is dusty, clean it with compressed air.

Yea I did that like a month ago but i checked earlier today , dusted it out and had no effect.

Unplug and ground yourself. Open the case and take out the harddrive carefully by first unplugging the cords and then unscrewing it then carefully sliding it out.
Using a usb hard drive adapter connect your current sata harddrive to the other one and run scandisk on it and then copy your files.

After you are sure you have everything you want keeping, put it back in carefully.
But this time take out a stick of RAM and then plug in your computer and try to turn it on. Unplug and repeat with each one by process of elimination.

As far everything else, I'll have to go out and buy a usb hard drive before i can do that. Which wont be until my birthday in a couple weeks since im a broke ass college student.

Hmmm..not trying to speak too soon but it hasn't crashed in hours...

I wonder if it really could have been adobe flash. That and reinstalling the video card driver again has been the only changes ive made since then.

I'll jump on the bandwagon and say bad RAM.
Why wouldn't that come up on the hardware test made specifically for this computer that included RAM
Or the other memtest for RAM that was given to me earlier in this thread?
From what I've seen on other threads, that seems to be the program to goto for figuring out if its RAM...it ran for an hour 20 and found NOTHING wrong so i really don't know what the hell is it could be at this point.
Is there any other tests?
Or could it pass those but still have something majorly wrong with it?
