Windows 7: BSOD(all on a sudden) + screen freezing + unwanted noices from HDD.

30 Jul 2012   #1

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
BSOD(all on a sudden) + screen freezing + unwanted noices from HDD.

OS: Windows 7 32 bit.(The problem may start here, i dont know. I installed a 32bit version on 64bit CPU. Does it pose any problems.?)
Ok let me come to the problem.
Started few months back.
I started hearing some noices from my CPU. But didnt carefully notice whether its coming from Hard disk or any other parts. But it posed no problems as such to me. I continued using my PC. Then one fine day my PC screen got freezed all on a sudden. Nothing movin. Like an Graphics card adapter error. And as everyone does, I pressed the restart button. PC got restarted and started to function normally.
Then after few days, the problem appeared again but restarting didnt help me. PC didnt boot at all..No motherboard screen appers when i tried to boot the system.Nothing. No beep sound from CPU too.Then i unscrewed the CPU machine. Looked around.. Did my own 'servicing'. ie.removed RAM and fixed it back again etc etc was done. Then when i rebooted the machine started to work normally.
Then few weeks later BSOD arrived suddenly on a fine morning. I quit the machine and did nothing. After few weks today i again did my 'servicing work'. ie. unscrewwed the CPU panel, removed the RAM and fixed it back again.And now my PC is working. But i want to get the problem be diagnosed before the next BSOD comes.
Thanks in advance

I'm thinking maybe the noise is from your graphics card.

The video scheduler has detected that fatal violation has occurred. This resulted
in a condition that video scheduler can no longer progress. Any other values after
parameter 1 must be individually examined according to the subtype.
Arg1: 00000001, The driver has reported an invalid fence ID.
Arg2: 0001d798
Arg3: 0001d7d8
Arg4: 0001d7d7
I've never seen this specific error in the debug window before so I have to admit I'm at a bit of a loss.
Right now I would suggest checking your card to make sure the fan is working properly and it's not clogged with dust.

Afterwards I would scrub your current video driver install and start fresh with a newly downloaded copy of the latest.

Additional info I can give you is the fault was in the directx system on the software side, but all the faults point to the ati driver kernel.

ps there was only one minidump in the attached files so I only have that to really work on, if there are more files in your c:\windows\minidump directory zipping and uploading them could help a bit.

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Welcome to SevenForums.

Remove power from computer.
Remove cover from computer.
With a can of compressed air, blow out all dust.
Leave the cover off.

Listen very carefully as you power up the computer.

Can you determine the source of the noises?

One of my main concerns is that the hard drive is on its deathbed.

As a safety measure, you might want to consider backing up any data dear to your heart to a usb stick, external drive, or dvd.

Would you read thru the following please and then fill out your system specs:
Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model and
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

You will find that in Speccy, you can select info from the display
using your mouse/touchpad and then paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit


Since your system is infected, carry out the following:
Windows Defender Offline
· is a free standalone, bootable malware and virus remover from Microsoft.
· performs an offline scan of an infected PC to remove viruses, rootkits and other advanced malware.

Download Windows Defender Offline (about 764 kB)

You will have the choice of downloading the 32bit version (x86) or the 64 bit version (x64).
The link will help you determine whether you are running a 32 bit version or 64 bit version of Windows

NOTE!! You can download and prepare a 32 bit version using a 64 bit version of Windows
NOTE!! You can download and prepare a 64 bit version using a 32bit version of Windows.

You run the 32 bit version on a 32 bit version of Windows.
You run the 64 bit version on a 64 bit version of Windows.

The 32 bit download file name is: mssstool32.exe
The 64 bit download file name is: mssstool64.exe

For the curious, this program was originally name Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper.

You will need an Internet Connection.
Insert 512 mB (Microsoft’s 256 mB is no longer accurate) or larger USB stick into a usb port.
Run the downloaded program--mssstool64.exe or mssstool32.exe
NEXT button
Choose the option On a USB flash drive that is not password protected
NEXT button
NEXT button
The install program will format the usb stick using the NTFS format.
The install program will download about 210 mB.
The install program will name the USB stick WDO_Media32 or WDO_Media64
The WDO_Media32 usb stick will have used space of 255 mB (268,140,544 bytes)
The WDO_Media64 usb stick will have used space of 282 mB (296,165,376 bytes)
You can expect the number of mB to increase as more malware appears.

UPDATE Windows Defender Offline USB stick:
· reinsert the usb stick
· run the installation program, mssstool64.exe or mssstool32.exe, again.
· the update will download about 66 mB (mssstool32.exe) and 68 mB (mssstool64.exe).

Since the malware database is sometimes updated several times in a day, always update before running.

Bootup your computer from the USB stick
Windows Defender Offline will automatically perform a quick scan.
After the quick scan finishes, Choose Full Scan
Select all of your drives

The initial, full scan can easily take several hours, but
Remember, your computer is being very thoroughly checked for all types of malware.

Huh I get the same from MSE , but it's clean on everything else I check it with.
Odd mse is catching something the big three are missing. May be false positive due to the text formatting in the driver lists and what not.

One thing for sure:
WDO will find it if it is there.

Perhaps you should consider running WDO.

I've removed the file due to MSE reporting Trojan.w32/Q Host. L in the file, I suggest everybody that has downloaded it to do an AV and malware scan just to be safe.

yeah it popped on quite a few, I found by removing the eventsys text file and scanning again it came clean.

I only keep saying this because I know from past experience just having the wrong set of text objects in the right order will trigger a positive.

I'm sure everyone is familiar with this old test
