  1. BSODs at random times (no particular program used)


    Hello there,

    On June 3rd, 2017 my Dell XPS got its first BSOD and I didn't think much of it due to the fact that the BSOD was so fast that I couldn't even catch what the particular error was. Unfortunately it has occured 11 more times since that day and the Windows 10 troubleshooters find no errors or etc.

    *Each time the error occured I was either in the room not touching the computer and I saw it flash the BSOD or I was using a different program or just browsing the internet (chrome, itunes, microsoft excel, and etc).*

    I then did some searching online and found that I could get some more potential information in the "event viewer" feature in Windows 10, which listed "Event 41, Kernel-Power, Task Category (63)". I then contacted Windows Support which first asked me if I was on a computer that was taken from Windows 8 to Windows 10, which I informed them no and that my computer started with Windows 10. After they did some searching based on what I told them I was informed my error was due to display drivers. So was told I needed to uninstall both of them and restart my computer and my problem would be fixed.

    Unfortunately that didn't fix my issue, so they told me that the issue would be my power supply... since it wasn't plugged into the power supply when the error occurred that also was incorrect. They had me change a few settings in the power management settings and was told to observe over the weekend. However I just go the error again so I thought I would post here in case someone else might have any thoughts or etc.

    Some other information would be that under "Event Viewer" I could click on the tab for details and this was what was listed below.

    BugcheckCode 340
    BugcheckParameter1 0xffffd4813198e000

    The other BugcheckParameters only listed "0x0"

    Hopefully someone may have some insight to what my issue is perhaps. I did the log collector, but on my screen I didn't have anything listed in the "mini dump files" as the video example did so I hope that doesn't cause an issue with potential trouble shooting (I haven't cleared anything or etc so everything should still be there).

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. Black Screen No cursor at random times.

    Hello,

    Recently I have been having an issue with my laptop. At random times my screen will turn black, with no cursor (the backlight is still clearly on). I appear to still have full control over my laptop, just nothing being displayed. if I use the keyboard shortcut
    to hibernate, and turn my laptop on again it will be back to normal, but eventually turn black again. I do not know if it is a hardware or software issue, because it seems to happen more frequently when running certain programs (Google Chrome, and Quartus
    II), but also appears to happen when moving my laptop.

    As a few specific examples, it happened when I was using Chrome, and every time I would hibernate and reboot, as soon as it displayed chrome it would black screen. after 5 or 6 attempts at this, I eventually forced a restart, and upon restoring my chrome
    session, it black screened. I forced a restart again, and didn't restore my chrome session, and it didn't black screen. Similar situations have happened several times, but will often go days or even a week without happening. Sometimes it appears to happen
    as soon as I pick up my laptop to move it, but this may just be a coincidence, but has happened a few too many times for me to rule it out as a coincidence.

    It did not start until I had Windows 10 for about a month, and I have clean reinstalled several times. As far as I know, all drivers are up to date.

    My system specs are:

    MSI GS60-003 Ghost (2014)

    Intel I7 4710HQ

    NVIDIA GTX 860M

    Windows 10 Education x64

    If you need any other information, please ask.

  5. Question, for Step 5 is that any of those 3 particular links give you the SMART tests? I must admit I'm completely unfamiliar with what a SMART test is. Also what is the "Microsoft snipping tool" that I use for the images? Would just doing a screencap with print screen and then just editing down to just the size of the SMART test work as well?

    Some of the above will go with Step 6, but I'm proceeding with the rest currently and hope to be finished and posting today.

    There were 3 software options listed to run a SMART test on your drive. Pick one of them to run a free test in extensive or detailed fashion and post images into the thread.
    For images you can use Microsoft paint or Microsoft snipping tool.

  7. Understood, I tried the HD Tune Pro link, but it never populates anything in the "health" tab (completely blank). I cannot even select items under the "info" tab either.

    So I'm at a loss as to why it won't work.

    Were you able to run the Sea Tools SMART test?

    Chkdsk did some repairs: Correcting errors in the Volume Bitmap. Windows has made corrections to the file system.

    Chose one of the other SMART software programs so that you have images and data that you save and use to follow trends over time.

    Uncheck automatic restart so that you have time to view the windows bsod screen.

  10. Yes the Sea Tools is in the text above, but when I copy and pasted it all from a text file I saw it looked crazy so I was trying to readjust everything so that it was readable, but missed readjusting the Sea Tools part. Here it is again below.

  11. After re-reading your question I notice you mention the SMART test again, I don't see that as an option unfortunately.

    All I see is "basic tests" with "drive information", "short generic", and "long generic".


    Here is the WhoCrashed info as well.

    For whocrashed was that the analyze before or after the test bsod dump?

    I ran the WhoCrashed bit after checking the settings in Step 7, I did change to what the previous post mentioned (photo is what it was before), but I didn't see anything about running a test BSOD dump. How would I do that exactly?

    The sea tools is not able to run on the ssd.
    You will need to run only one of the other three.
    See if Crystal disk or HD tune will produce images and data of your drive.

    For whocrashed view the menu where it displays tools.
    In the tools menu is an option for the test.
