  1. freezing/BSOD 0x00000133 while opening overwatch and alttab play video


    ok, i got a pretty weird freezing / BSOD occurance and really need help

    the freeze / BSOD happen when i open a game (mostly overwatch & worldoftanks) it doesnt matter if im ingame or just in the main menu, but when i alt tab(switch window) to firefox browser and play video(such as video in facebook or youtube) my system will freeze with sound stuttering. sometimes windows will recover (event viewer said my graphic driver crash and recovered) but mostly it will keep freeze and then go BSOD 0x00000133(watchdog violation)

    i tried to edit registry TDRdelay / TDRlevel both no effect
    i updated my Nvidia driver to the latest and also the older one also no effect (my graphic is GTS450)
    i did GPU stress test with furmark, nothing wrong
    never got freeze if i didnt open any game and i can watch video normally. the freeze will only occur when i have overwatch/worldoftanks opened and alttab to firefox browser and play a video on facebook/youtube
    sometimes when i leave browser open without any video playing (2 tab active facebook and twitter) and playing overwatch/worldoftanks sometimes it will freeze too. so annoying

    Bsod viewer said hall.dll and ntoskrnl

    attacment included
    i think the problem is not on my GPU but rather windows 10 driver nvidia
    please help me
    sry if my english is bad

    :)

  2. Sudden artifacts, freezing and BSODs under some stress

    Since yesterday, my laptop seems to be malfunctioning. While playing games like Battlefield4 and Overwatch, after some time I get artifacts and my screen freezes(game keeps running and windows is still active, can still hear notifications and game sounds).
    After this I can exit the game through task manager and relaunch the game, untill all this happens again.

    During this recurring problem, I also got the occasional BSOD: INTERNAL_VIDEO_SCHEDULER_ERROR

    This problem seemed to start out of nowhere. It also seems not to be temperature related(GPU reaches only 65C and CPU 75C).

    Things I have tried but didn't work:

    -Reinstalling gpu driver.

    -Installing older gpu driver.

    Things I have tried that seemed to work:

    -Set TDRdelay to 8 in registry.

    The last thing seemed to work for a while, untill again while playing Overwatch, I saw artifacts, the screen froze and got a BSOD with the message THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED.

    Here is a link to the last 3 DMP files, MSinfo and speccy:

    BSOD: driver irql_less_or_not_equal

    I've been getting the occasional BSOD for a while now and finally fed up enough to do something about it. It varies what the BSOD says the cause is but the one I can remember is driver irql_less_or_not_equal. So I went and did the driver verifier and got
    some minidumps. Couldn't even boot into windows with driver verifier on. Crashes seem to happen most often when I'm playing Overwatch (and no other games) and while watching videos on Youtube (Firefox)

    Minidump

    freezing/BSOD 0x00000133 while opening overwatch and alttab play video

    Please update the NVidia driver. The best way to do this is to uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from your Graphics card manufacturer or from the NVidia website. When you do this be sure the "clean install" box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver.

  6. Quick update: I tried to use Mem check using memtest86 no sign of error
    Also yesterday when I played overwatch without any browser open (only overwatch open) I got freeze again and I got penalty from competitive, it's frustrating and I'm hopeless.
    Please help me

    edit: tried to open overwatch and then play a video file with MPC. no freeze/BSOD so far
    conflict between game & firefox ?

    edit again: so i tried to open overwatch and alt tab play a video on firefox youtube but no freeze. its pretty random

    what i did so far is only turning off vsync on overwatch setting

    If you have had new BSOD events since you last posted the log files, please post a new set for us to check.

    Make sure you are using the default optimized settings in the BIOS, and the graphics driver was installed with a clean install to ensure all the settings were returned to default.

  9. ok so it still BSOD
    what i did so far was turn off vsync and install aetheros LAN driver (since i saw some people got BSOD because of LAN driver) but the BSOD still not fix

    the latest BSOD happen when i was searching for game in overwatch and i switch window(alt-tab) to firefox browser, about around -+30 seconds surfing facebook, my computer freeze and then few minutes later it BSOD

    for the bios thing, the only i change was turning RAM from AUTO(1066) to 1333 and SATA mode from IDE to AHCI since im using SSD

    Have you tried monitoring voltages on your system? I wonder if the power supply is able to cope when everything is drawing power at full load. HW Monitor or Speccy are good programs.

  11. currently i try remove my WD BLUE 500Gb (game harddisk, PS: the harddisk is 4 years old) which have 2 partition,
    -partition 1 : 100GB disk which i used to use for my OS but no longer in use because it got bad sector on this partition
    -partition 2 : 300GB disk which i use to store my games include the overwatch

    the reason i try to remove it to see if the harddisk is the one who actually cause it or not (all this time i think it imposible since i dont use the harddisk to load OS anymore, only use to load game)
    so i give it a try to remove the harddisk and move the overwatch game to my OS SSD to test it. so far no freeze / BSOD

    for the voltage here is the image below

    Attachment 117671Attachment 117672

    quick update: yesterday i tried the overwatch (PS: game file is on my OS SSD and the old HDD is unplugged) and try to make it break like usual cause ( open overwatch and play a video on youtube / facebook)
    so actually i get 2 freezes (but doesnt BSOD) and both eventviewer said nvidia driver crash and recovered like usual.
    the first one happen when i already open overwatch on main menu and alt tab(switch) window to firefox browser to surf in facebook and it randomly freeze (no video playing in browser)
    the second one happen when overwatch already open on main menu and watching stream on twitch.tv and it freeze and recover from nvidia crash

    after that i tried again open overwatch and watch stream twitch.tv but it didnt freeze/bsod for -+3 hours
    so apparently its pretty random

  12. a little update:
    ok, so i bought new GTX 1050 TI few days ago (planned upgrade when 1050 TI announced) to upgrade my GTS 450

    havent got any freeze / BSOD since then, so for now i think its safe to say that probably my GTS 450 start to failing or maybe the GTS 450 got compability issue with windows 10? i dunno

    i will come back again to this thread for further update

  13. freezing/BSOD 0x00000133 while opening overwatch and alttab play video

    ok so its already a week now since my last post. i got no more freeze or BSOD
    so i think the problem is solved with the old GPU being the problem coz of old age

    thanks to philc43 for your time to help me
