Blue Screen windows 7 PC closes with a Blue Screen and Restarts


There are a lot of possible causes for blue screen errors, but most of them relate to the computer hardware. The cause of a BSOD error can be a temperature problem, a timing error, a resource conflict, hardware failure, a corrupt registry, a virus or simply a device incompatibility or driver error.
How to analyze blue screen errors The first thing to do to analyze a blue screen error is to check the meaning of the STOP error code. You need to stop Windows from rebooting when a STOP error is encountered. Once the blue screen of death is shown, you can check the meaning of the STOP error code. Together with the filename of the driver or module, this will give an indication of the error cause.
Another option to analyze the cause of the blue screen error is to look at the Windows system event log or to debug the memory dump (minidump) that Windows created when the error occurred. The event log can be viewed using the event viewer. Right-click Computer in the Start menu, and then select Manage. In the Computer Management window select Event Viewer. The information in the event log can be of great help to isolate the cause of the blue screen error.
Reading the minidump requires a bit more technical knowledge, but Microsoft has tools to read the minidump.
The most common cause of blue screen errors In reality, the most common cause of blue screen errors is a device driver problem. Outdated, incorrect or corrupt drivers can cause the system to encounter a STOP error, resulting in the BSOD.
So the easiest way to try and fix a blue screen error is to reinstall and update your system's device drivers. This will ensure that all driver bugs are fixed and that all hardware has the correct driver.
If you know which device caused the error, you can update or reinstall that driver first. The file name in the blue screen of death can help identify the driver. Look for a file with the .SYS extension and search for that file name.
If you do not have the drivers for all devices, or are not comfortable updating your PC's drivers manually, you can use a driver update tool to find, download and update all device drivers for you. Such tools will accurately identify your computer hardware, including any device causing an error, and automatically install the latest drivers for it.
In most cases updating or reinstalling drivers will solve your blue screen errors.
Other causes of blue screen errors However, if updating device drivers does not fix the blue screen error, there are a number of additional things to try:
  • Load the default BIOS values - resource conflicts and timing issues can be caused by incorrect BIOS settings.
  • Update the BIOS - especially after adding new hardware or installing a Windows service pack this can help fix issues.
  • Update Windows - missing updates, including service packs can be a source of stop errors.
  • Check your system - run a virus scan and spyware scan after updating your definition files.
  • Driver rollback - if you have recently updated a driver, you can use the driver rollback to revert back to the previous driver version.
List of STOP Errors Causing BSOD:
  • Stop 0×00000003 UNSYNCHRONIZED_ACCESS
  • Stop 0x0000000A IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
  • Stop 0x0000001E KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
  • Stop 0×00000023 FAT_FILE_SYSTEM
  • Stop 0×00000024 NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM
  • Stop 0x0000002E DATA_BUS_ERROR
  • Stop 0x0000003F NO_MORE_SYSTEM_PTES
  • Stop 0×00000044 MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS


Here are 2 solutions:
Solution #1 Scan your registry for errors.
A Registry Cleaner scans your computer for errors in your PC's registry. Your computer's registry contains information about your Windows XP operating system, including driver, printer, software information. Over time, your computer's registry may start to contain obsolete data. A corrupt registry will easily slow down the speed of your computer because applications and drivers are loaded even though they're not in use. Fixing your registry of errors will not only prevent the Windows XP Blue Screen Of Death, it'll allow your computer to boot faster, open up multiple folders quicker. A listing of registry cleaners can be found here.
Solution #2 Process of Elimination
When the CPU calls certain functions from the RAM, or Random Access Memory, and the data rests in a faulty section of the RAM, this will cause the blue screen to appear. I recall a time whenever my computer booted up and started loading the Norton Anti Virus program, the blue screen error message would appear. This happens because the CPU is accessing data from faulty locations within the RAM when loading the anti virus software.
This method involves having 2 sticks of RAM. Remove 1 stick of RAM and wait to see if the blue screen surfaces, do the same for the other.
Through process of elimination, you'll find the cause of the Windows XP blue screen of death error.
Because getting into the hardware can be a little techy for computer hardware "adverse" readers, a simple 2 step plan is to first clear your PC of any registry errors. Then if the blue screen of death goes away, we would have saved ourselves the trouble of having to open up the PC casing and touching the hardware components

Blue screen errors, or blue screen of death (BSOD) errors, are the most severe errors Windows can encounter. Since Windows can not recover from this kernel level error, a blue screen is displayed with the error details. The error details contain a STOP error code, which indicates the type of error.

There are a lot of possible causes for blue screen errors, but most of them relate to the computer hardware. The cause of a BSOD error can be a temperature problem, a timing error, a resource conflict, hardware failure, a corrupt registry, a virus or simply a device incompatibility or driver error.

I cant find the icon for the webcam on my averatec D1002UHCE-1 Al


You'll survive this one, I daresay.
How's it going as far as the USB plug?  Maybe the power fell out of the USB hub or the webcam and you get to reconnect that as well as the USB connection?  If things aren't perfect then, try going into control panels and seeing if the OS lists the webcam among the A/V devices.

Sometimes USB ports go bad, sometimes the power thing falls out and throws me for a loop, sometimes it's just a virus and you need to stop deferring the antivirus scans and such (or run one; just pick a trusted source, or for example refer to articles etc. at theregister.co.uk or MaximumPC.com)  so your system can heal up and recognize the USB ports the virus was thinking of commandeering.  Sorry about that run-on sentence.

Webcam Woes.


Try new drivers if you haven't already, or, if you can, get your hands on some older drivers and see if that helps.

The blue screen could be caused by a malfunction in the device itself which in turn causes the drivers to crash and Windows to blue screen. It is entirely possible that the webcam has simply become defective.

Good Luck!

Blue screen appears when I instal Microsoft nx-6000 cam


hi adrian,

thank you for using fixya.

you may have encountered that blue screen of death error because of an IRQ conflict. this cane be caused by a conflicting resource for computer components. much like 1 car battery being used by 2 cars at the same time.

o have this resolved, it is best that you have the camera replaced with another model or you can try to remove other USB devices plugged into your computer until you find out what is causing the error message or the conflict to your new Life Cam.\

hope this helps.

regards.

Webcam causing windows to shut down


Hi,
I think this a problem with a USB driver. I had a similar problem once with a USB mouse and keyboard, when running XP. I never isolated the reasons for it happening, but I uninstalled the USB drivers for both and reinstalled them and rebooted and the problem disappeared.
Maybe try uninstalling the Logitech driver and then doing a Registry Clean (and a Clean System) with nCleaner and then downloading the latest zipfile for your webcam model from the Logitech support webpage.
Then plug the webcam in. It will detect and try to look for drivers but not be able to find any.
Now unzip the driver to a folder. Go to Control panel > System > Device Manager, and look for the Unknown Device with a yellow exclamation mark next to it. Double click it to open the driver window and then click the Driver tab. Press Install Driver and choose the 'Browse Computer for Driver' type option and navigate to the folder you unzipped the driver to, select it and open it.
It will Install and then you should reboot.
The problem should be solved, unless some IRQ conflict still happens, in which case you should do a Scan for Errors with an operating system disk.

SO, to sum up, when in doubt, uninstall the driver, clean the registry,reinstall the latest driver, reboot!

Hope that helps

I had a same problem with my installed usb camera in my msi notebook. I thought it was caused by wrong driver or something like that and after downloading a number of drivers it still dont worked. I tried really everything and after pressing the P1 button ( one of the 4 buttons near the power button ) a USB camera viewer appeared on my screen. Now it is working without any troubles. Maybe it is the solution for you too.
