Random BSOD's, error 0x0000003b... I don't know what to do!

Hi everyone,

EDIT: :::I have now attached a zip with the info:::

I'm a first time poster... and also only average when it comes to technical know-how with computers (so go easy on me lol).

I'm getting a lot of BSOD's this is the information from the one that just happened. I was just surfing the net (I think I had some music playing as well). It seems to be happening more and more. Before it was only every few days... but for example today I have had it 5 times so far! I'm freaking out a bit...


I have a laptop machine with these basic specs:

2630 QM
8G RAM
AMD Radeon 6870m



Here is some information from the last 2 BSOD's:

In order to further assist you, we need the actual dmp files. If you follow http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html, you can download an executable that will copy your dmp files into a folder in your documents folder. Then you can get the system report and put it in your documents folder and zip both files together (the instructions are very clear on how to do so in the above link). Thank you.

STOP 0x0000003B: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

Usual causes: System service, Device driver, graphics driver, ?memory
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

IF YOU ARE OVERCLOCKING STOP!

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

sorry for the bump... I'm just wondering if maybe I have a network issue that's causing it? I'm using a usb modem (but have been for 2 weeks and the problems have only been getting really bad in the last few days). I noticed that there was some sort of bluetooth error in the analysis....

Your problems are all related to memory corruption, which could mean a bad module/slot, or it could be an underlying driver problem. Start with the memory testing first:
Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial.

After the above steps, run Driver Verifier as follows:
1. Backup your system and user files
2. Create a system restore point
3. If you do not have a Windows 7 DVD, Create a system repair disc
4. Run Driver Verifier

If Windows cannot start in normal mode with driver verifier running, start in safe mode. If it cannot start in safe mode or normal mode, restore the system restore point using System Restore OPTION TWO.

Thanks to zigzag3143 for contributing to the above steps.

Following on from writhziden's advice.

* You say your computer is only only 2 months old.
Is it under Warranty?

* FYI
Microsoft states that the possible fixes for the BCC 3B include:

> Download and install updates and device drivers for your computer from Windows Update.
> Scan your computer for computer viruses.
> Check your hard disk for errors.

* Another possibility is this error has been linked to excessive paged pool usage and may occur due to user-mode graphics drivers crossing over and passing bad data to the kernel code.

You could...
> Run a Malwarebytes scan.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

> Run chkdsk
Disk Check

> Re-install graphics driver using this method

Quote:
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver.
In order to do that we recommend using

Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

thank you. I will try this stuff tonight and let you know how it goes...

as for warranty... yes I have one, but it's pretty much useless since I am now in a different country than where I bought the computer.

Could this have solved my problem? Until today, for the past 2 weeks I was using a usb modem... today I was able to hook my pc up to a cable. So far after a few hours of use I have had no crashes.

I always found the usb modem to be a bit annoying, and maybe caused conflicts with my computer.

Is it within the realm of possibility that this could have solved it, or am I just fooling myself?
