Dell XPS L501X :: Blue Screen Of Death?

Jan 4, 2011

I have a brand new Dell XPS with Model : L501X purchased in Malaysia hand carried to Philippines about 2 weeks ago.

Upon receiving I have noticed that a Blue Screen appears with nvlddmkm.sys error every time I play a video initially stored in the laptop hard drive or via youtube.

I have also noticed there were two video drivers installed which where Intel HD graphics and Geforce GT 420M drivers. I installed an updated GT 420M driver through driver downloads in dell support. Unfortunately it did not resolve the issue.

To relieve my doubts of driver conflicts, I have freshly installed a Windows 7 home premium but BSOD still keeps on occurring.

I am currently running this computer using only one video driver (Intel HD Graphics), I want to run this computer using Nvidia Geforce GT 420M.

How am I gonna do that without having BSOD recurring?

Is it also normal to hear some frequently very mild ticking sound coming from the right side of the keyboard and mildly grounding sting on the plastic aluminum colored frame around the keyboard?

BTW, here are some hardware info :

Model : L501X
Processor : Core i5
Ram : 4 Gb
Hdd : 500 Gb
VCard : Nvidia Geforce GT 420M - 1 Gb

Dell :: Blue Screen Of Death

Apr 25, 2008

I'm running a NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS in my E1705 and I've been having some problems with the nasty BSOD.

This is the error message I get:

*** Hardware Malfunction
Call your hardware vendor for support
NMI: Parity Check / Memory Parity Error
*** The system has halted

It only seems to happen when I'm playing WoW... and its getting really annoying. I had thought it was an overheating problem before, but I've been able to keep my GPU temp under control pretty well lately.

Dell :: 1705 Blue Screen Of Death

Jan 25, 2008

I've been getting the occasional BSOD on my 1705 with the 7900 GS. Is there any fix for this? I saw the one for the 7950 GTX but I don't know if that works the same as the 7900 GS.

Dell :: Blue Screen Of Death Help (video Card)

Oct 12, 2007

I've got a problem. I downloaded and installed the new demo for Time Shift. After it was complete it said it detected I did not have the latest drivers for my video card and I needed to download the latest ones for stable running of the game. So I clicked ok and it took me to a download of a Forceware driver (I've forgotten the numbers and have deleted it). After downloading it and running it, a box popped up and said I don't have the the compatible hardware/software to install those drivers (not exact words). So I thought ok, it will just exit and keep what I've got (dells stock 7900GTX driver). but after exiting the setup about 5 seconds later I got a blue screen stating a hardware error.
So I restarted my M1710 to notice blue dashed vertical lines on my screen and after the Windows XP loading page it would blue screen again so fast I cant read any of it. Now I can run in safe mode without the graphical screw ups on my screen. But the boot diagnostic detected no error. It displayed all those colored bars but there were weird glitches in them. I downloaded and re-installed Dells stock drivers to no avail. I searched my hardrive and registry for anything that said Forceware or the driver number and deleted all results. I system restored to no avail. So now I can only run in safe mode on a really ugly resolution.

What can I do before I resort to the 5+ day pain of return to depot service?....

Device manager shows no problems but says it can state the status of the card in safe mode. And I'm not technical enough to know how to use the event viewer to work out what went wrong.

Dell :: Weird 1640 Notquitebutalmost Blue Screen Of Death

Oct 6, 2009

So lately my SXPS 1640 has been crashing every so often, with a blue screen coming up saying:

POWER_DRIVER_STATE_FAILURE
(or something along those lines)

saying that the computer is restarting to protect the device. I haven't been able to read all of what it says because it restarts to quickly but it's getting really annoying as it is happening more frequently.

It also generally only seems to happen when I've been using it with the battery only and not when it's plugged into the socket.

Dell :: Blue Screen Of Death On Inspiron 6000 - What Are My Options Now ?

Sep 6, 2009

I have been getting the dreaded blue screen every couple of days for the last few months but since last week I keep getting it every 15 minutes ! My lapotp is 4 years old so I guess I cannot drag it anymore and have to think about a replacement hard drive or a new laptop.

So which one is the best option. I dont want to shell out the extra dough on the new one so was wondering if its worth buying a new HD and upgrading the RAM and keep working on the old one. I just use it for internet, word processing and Photoshop.

My specs are

Pentium M 2.13 GHz
80 GB Ultra ATA HD
256 MB RAM

Acer :: Blue Screen Of Death After Installing XP On 6920g

Mar 27, 2009

I have tried to install XP Home on my Acer 6920g but with no success.

I made an XP disk with the sata drivers via Nlite which was recognised, installed the OS but on first boot the laptop gives me the BSOD but as it is so quick I am unable to get any error code. The laptop will not boot on safe mode either which makes me think there is a physical (hardware) issue that doesn't like XP.

HP/Compaq :: New HPdv3z: Blue Screen Of Death After Updates

May 14, 2009

My new HP DV3 1075 is only 2 weeks old:

Windows Vista Home Premium w/SP1(64bit)
13.3" WXGA LED Brightview Widescreen Display(1280x800)
AMD Turion X2 Ultra Dual-Core ZM-84(2.3Ghz)
4GB DDR2(2 dimm)
500GB 5400RPM Sata hard Drive
ATI Radeon 3200 Graphics w/64MB Display Cache Memory

It's been working fine and updating automatically periodically - until last night's Java 6 #13 followed by the windows update (on 5/13). Got the blue screen and oxo code (a general stop error ending in A which gave no clues) and subsequent hp repair files option. This worked the first time, then java updated again and I restarted it. But after the windows update it happened another half dozen times and the hp notebook could never repair itself.

HP ProBook 4720 OS/Software :: Graphics Blue Screen Of Death?

Mar 16, 2014

I have an HP probook 4720s (Product #: WT238EA#ACQ). I have upgraded my RAM to 6GB.My problem. The other day I was busy playing a game when the computer froze and then turned off while it was turning off a small blue screen briefly appeared. I restarted the laptop and everything seemed fine, I left the computer for a few minutes and when I came back the screen was completely off but the computer was operating as normal. No key press or anything would put the screen back on.Everytime after this event that I tried to put the laptop on it would start(HHD spin, CPU fan work, HDD light would blink for a bit then stop but the screen would stay completely black with no blue backlight).

I tried hard reset and a number of other things like checking if the RAM was connected properly and still the screen remained off.I decided to connect the laptop to an external monitor and I finally could display on the monitor but it still would not display on the laptop screen. After the windows emblem loaded the dreaded blue screen of death would appear with a STOP error 0x00000116 which after some looking up appears to be the graphics driver.

After safe starting the system and rolling back the graphics driver to standard VGA adapter the windows 7 system was then able to start in normal mode. I've tried reinstalling the HD 5470 graphics driver but the blue screen of death continues to appear. I have completely reloaded the OS to no avail.I disconnected the laptops screen from the motherboard without the graphics driver loaded, which didn't cause a beep but displayed on the external monitor when I connected it. I tried the same with the graphic driver loaded, still no beeps were heard and when I connected the external monitor the blue screen appeared.From the tests I had tried, I believe that there must be an issue with the graphics card itself as the Blue screen of death only displays when the graphics card driver is loaded.

Lenovo X / Helix Tablet :: X200 - Wacom Pen Blue Screen Of Death On Windows 7

Dec 17, 2011

I have a Lenovo x200 tablet PC (Stylus Only Version) - and recently installed Windows 7 Professional (64bit)
 
The OS install went perfectly...Once installed, I did all the Systems Updates for Windows 7, including all the updates for Lenovo using System Update 4.01.....However, I have an issue that I cannot seem to figure out...
 
PROBLEM # 1 The biggest issue I now face is, whenever I put the Digitized Pen next to the Tablet Screen within 2 seconds I get the 'Blue Screen of Death'....and it automatically Reboots....This ONLY happens when I touch the Pen to the screen....
 
I uninstalled the 'Wacom Drivers' - within the Device Manager, which i assume were installed by the system update(s)....After, uninstalling the issue of the 'Blue Screen' from happening when the pen touches the screen is gone.....However, I have no way of being able to use the Pen...it does not show any cursor or inking....Is there a specific DRIVER that I should be installing on my own to make this work properly - without getting the 'Blue Screen of Death' each time?....
 
PROBLEM # 2 My Second issue, which is suddenly occured after day 2 of installing updates is the Lenovo System Update 4.01 -- Suddenly, after working on day 1 - now, whenever i try to 'Check New Updates' i get a popup that says "An error was detected with the Package catalog for your system on the System Update Server. Please contact the Support Center".

Acer :: Acer 6930ZG With A Fresh Install Of Windows 7 RC 32bit - MapleStory Blue Screen Of Death

Aug 15, 2009

I have an Acer 6930ZG with a fresh install of windows 7 RC 32bit. I can play Call Of Duty 4, Counter Strike, Flatout 2 etc. with no problems! But when I try to open MapleStory a blue screen appears, and begin to make a physcial memory dump? . MapleStory is a 2D-game, and Call Of Duty requires much more.

I made a little research, and I found out that alot of people have the same problem, and they said it was caused by a conflict with a program or hardware drivers. I have tried to delete my NVIDIA driver, and install it again. No luck.

And yes, I have also tried to run MapleStory in compatibily mode

As I said: It's only in MapleStory I experience the problem, and I don't think it's ram-failure, since I have seen the same problem on a different computer, and I can play Call of Duty 4.

Here is the system log:

Dell :: Black Screen Of Death!! And No Warranty...

Jul 28, 2009

Yesterday while I was on my XPS 1530 laptop, the colors on the screen turned all screwy and then it crashed to blue screen. Odd...

It happened about 5 more times until when I tried to turn on my computer, the backlight on the screen would go on, but the screen itself would remain black.

I can actually hear it booting up normally, it even makes the window log-in noise, but there is simply no image on the screen at all. I even hooked up my external monitor to my laptop, but absolutely nothing comes up on it.

Dell XPS M2010 :: Black Screen Of Death

Feb 18, 2010

Several times I have had my M2010 screen freeze and then not come up at all on a reboot.The machine is under warranty and typically they send a tech out with a motherboard which does not fix the problem.  Then the tech who pretty much knows its the video card has them send a new video card which does fix the problem and the machine works beautifully again.

However, several months later the card blows again and I have to do the whole process again which knocks out my computer usually when I need it most.  Now I keep all my data externally with exceptions of it breaking down (not how I expected it to work).

Acer Aspire E1-522 :: Black Screen Of Death - Cannot Get Into BIOS

Sep 2, 2014

I have a relatively new Aspire E1-522.   Was in the middle of watching Netflix when it conked out.   Now, when I turn the power on very little happens...the blue light comes on, the fan comes on and the screen backlight comes on...and then goes out...and then comes on again...etc.
 
Basically, turning it on doesn't even get to the Acer logo.  Cannot get into the BIOS by any means.   In my research this sounds exactly like the Aspire One black screen of death, although I haven't found references to it with respect to the E1.
 
I think the BIOS is fried. How to re-flash it on the E1-522?  I cannot boot windows, so I can't use the self-extracting EXE.   I need to be able to flash it from the bare bones hardware like the fix for the AA1 ....

Apple :: Unibody Mackbook - Black/Rainbow Screen Of Death

May 10, 2009

Well, since yesterday, my 2 month old unibody mackbook has been crashing at random. I'll be doing anything from web surfing, to just doing a time-machine back up and "whosh", the screen goes black with a 1/2" wide multicolored pixelated horizontal stripe about 1" from the top remaining.

This has happened about a dozen times, with the only option being to hold down the power button to reboot.

I went into the the nearest Apple Store to a Genius Bar appointment to see if there was anything to be done. Mind you, i also ran every known diagnostic I could get my hands upon, before I went, and everything checks out a-ok.

The Genius bar guy says it's a "known issue" with the new unibody Macs with the 9400M graphics processor. A "known issue"??? How come I have never heard about this on NBR?

I am supposed to wait until Apple issues it's firmware "fix" according the the GB guy.

Acer :: Aspire 7551-2575 (MS2310) Black Screen Of Death - Recovery BIOS File Name?

Nov 12, 2014

One morning, laptop powers-on (Blue led on power button and on front bezel), no display, fans spin up and down, CD drive makes the usual seek sound. Attached external screen from my desktop, no display either, no POST!!. Removed HD, RAM, NIC, no change. No beeping what so ever, really looks like the notorious Acer BSOD i've read about. What I need is the EXACT name I should rename the BIOS file (JE70D118.ROM) to be able to use the Phoenix BIOS recovery function (FN+ESC+PWR) with the BIOS file on a USB key or SD card. Seems to be a national secret or something... Acer does not seem to have this documented anywhere.... including the actual BIOS recovery procedure....
