How To Fix BSOD 333

TIP: You should click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system speed.

Blue Screen of Death BSOD is a stop error screen that is being displayed on a Windows computer every time a fatal system error or a serious system crash occurs. This is the time when the operating system can no longer work and operate safely. Blue screens usually gives out a stop code which users can use to determine the root of the problem.

Generally, blue screens are a result of an issue with the computer hardware or its driver software. Low-level softwares can also cause the system to crash and trigger a BSOD. However, regular apps and programs can not cause BSOD if they crash.

Windows automatically makes a “minidump” file when a blue screen arises. This file contains details about the crash that will help identify the main cause of the blue screen error.

What causes BSOD 333

To fix a Blue Screen of Death error, you need to take note of the text on the screen when it happened. It often contains a list of files associated with the crash including device drivers that could have triggered the error. Since most Windows are designed to automatically restart after a blue screen, you need to make sure that you disable this feature in order to do any necessary troubleshooting in future cases of BSOD.

One most important thing to do after a blue screen is to ask yourself what you did before it occurred. It could be that you are trying to install a new software, updating a device driver or installing updates - the key is there. You can also check your storage and make sure that there is enough space for Windows to operate safely. You can also set hardware settings and BIOS to default to help troubleshoot the problem.

I've got this system running since november 2010 and i have had not a single problem. Since that day, Blue Screens happened every time i got to desktop, after few seconds or after few minutes... I had same problems: freeze and errors just after boot, not later (played some heavy game for more than 5 hours or so).

Freezes and BSoD kept coming, so i ran some tests: memtest86, scandisk, a samsung hdd test... Right now i have no freeze/BSoD on boot, but only while playing (after few secs). I tested old rams on another computer, and they worked just fine. Here some Blue Screen coming from Driver Verifier ...

BSOD on windows load - safe mode BSOD at loading Aswrvrt.sys

BSOD Fairly Often. Driver Verifier Enabled = BSOD on Boot Every Time

I have a relatively new computer that I've built and I've been getting BSOD's for a while. It's been 0x3b ntoskrnl exe lately, but when I enabled driver verifier I was getting a different BSOD on each boot. One of them specifically mentioned a .sys that I can't exactly remember. At first I thought it was because the pagefile was disabled, but that was just why they weren't getting logged to MiniDump.

I'll be actively monitoring this (and I'm currently in safe mode with driver verifier still enabled). it was XXhalp.sys or something, and when I Googled it - everyone was talking about deleting monitor profiles from the registry and that somehow old monitor profiles were causing the BSODs, so I donno about that. I would appreciate any help you can offer.

So just let me know what you need. Then I got it enabled again and now I'm getting a lot of BSODs.

Bsod 0xa3 And 0x8e - Unusual/unclear Picture And Random Bsod

It's a Via P4M890-based motherboard although it has a PCIe expansion. Just thought I would mention this.

They're using an Asus P5DV2-VM SE motherboard
Intel E2140 (1.6GHz) CPU,
with a 450w PSU.

I tried uninstalling the video driver (Via Chrome9). Usually this is not recommended as it can cause serious issues if the update is not performed correctly, but is recommended when the BIOS is suspected to be the cause of an issue such as this.EDIT: all you see on the screen is black with blue spots all over.I just remembered having an issue like this, and it was corrected by simply reseating the video card. At some point I also received a 0xA3. Have you tried a BIOS update?

Loading in safe mode usually works, and loading into VGA mode got me into Windows however I received a 0x8E pretty quickly. My friend's computer started going weird after playing a game that uses Shockwave. (That's the last thing they remember...) When loading into Windows (regular mode), after selecting (any) user all you see on the screen is black with blue spots all over. That allowed me back into regular mode but soon after I got a BSOD. I tried running System Restore from safemode and I got 0xA3 (ACPI_DRIVER_INTERNAL) but I can't find info on fixing this one.

One possible source of this problem is a BIOS error.Drivers and Windows interacts with the BIOS. Here is what Microsoft says regarding 0xa3 errors:An inconsistency in the ...

BSOD after restarting following a malwarebytes scan and BSOD after running windows xp repair

All passed. Btw, I ran diagnostic test a few times. Generally...OEM disks do not allow for a "repair install", only a reversion to factory defaults which the system had when purchased. I followed the processes suggested by the following webpage.


If I have done it, please move this post to the right section. What I only had after running a little while is BSOD.

And I noticed some new sentences at the bottom of the BSOD which are like ?physical memory dump?. A BSOD popped out after the windows symbol in Part 3. All documentation (which I've seen) referring to a repair install of XP...assume that the user has a copy of MS Genuine Windows, not disks provided by an OEM. I don?t even really dare to switch the computer back on now!

Sorry if I have posted in the wrong section of the forum.

Hopefully, solutions for all of this would be recommended by someone. Thank you in advance. After this happened and I did some searching online, I decided to run a windows xp repair by using the original OEM window xp installation CD (sp2) when the system inside the computer is sp3 after I updated it long ago. System manufacturer and model?

It was all fine until Part 4 in that webpage.

BSOD reboot, still BSOD problems & failure to recognize Ethernet card

After BSOD problems (0x00000050), I took my two month old Dell desktop back to Geek Squad under warranty. When I tried installing drivers, it wouldn't recognize Ethernet card. Said problem wasn't hardware, but software, and would charge to fix. I took it home and reinstalled Win 7.

Wife thinks a no-name anti-virus CD will fix it all, but I'd appreciate your advice. BSOD (0x0000007b) with a Dell installation CD, but otherwise fine except it keeps restarting itself at various intervals. Not sure what's going on.

Random BSOD's while gaming and surfing web(BSOD Codes vary each time)

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable.

Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable.

[SOLVED] Windows Vista - BSOD's while trying to bootup, now also BSOD's whilst reinst

I just tried again for 4th time and I managed to type this much above ^^ before the laptop restarted itself :(
First thing is the Windows bootup screen, improper shutdown asking to boot in safemode/normal etc. After hours of trying, I googled some and downloaded Windows Vista Recovery Disc and I attempted the Automatic System Repair but it told me failed to detect any problems. I have never even seen inside of a laptop before, and certainly have no spare parts to test out.

The BSOD's were so fast I cannot get a glance at it. Tried it again, and same. I have no idea what she has done, obviously claiming to have done nothing but basically I got a text this morning asking me to take a look at the laptop because it wont turn on. This time I chose Last known configuration, same happened.

The laptop did come with a typical recovery disc but I am unable to find that, and the Windows Vista label is stuck underneath the Laptop so I downloaded a copy of Windows Vista to install and I managed to format the harddrive. Now this is what bugs me, I cannot even install a fresh copy of Windows, I am actually trying again as we speak but even whilst "Copying the files" on the Windows installation, it BSOD's on that too. Anyone able to help me out with this, I feel

The laptop is a Packard Bell SJ51

BSOD playing Smite, BCC116 & BCC117, BSOD mentions atikmpag.sys

I have used malware-bytes to detect malware and viruses but all that was quarantined seems to have had no affect. So instead of finding a solution I attempted to find more symptoms, I found that within the blue screen it mentions atikmpag.sys, I see that my PC problem reports tell me that I have a lot of Windows shutting down and Video hardware errors (With the BCC codes BCC116 and BCC117 respectivly).

Around the 17th of March I was playing Smite, joined a match and about half way through it, I received a freeze then a BSOD. So I wouldn't ruin more games for others I attempted to fix the problem myself, looking up that I had to update my GPU drivers (which I do now have) or uninstall them to let my pc auto install the suitable one (This ended up with my PC or Radeon hardware detector not detecting the GPU so I had to system restore).

I tried these solutions that I see everywhere when I search, but obviously they didn't work. I also tried cleaning out my PC rig with a duster to see if, my bad PC hygiene, had caused heating problems but it had no affect. I hope I have successfully attached the zip file correctly but if I haven't or some other files are needed, or if I haven't applied a forum rule by accident please mention it.

So now I have given up in attempting to fix it by my self and have joined the Sevenforums in an attempt to fix this problem and get back to the game I enjoy. To test whether a solution has worked or not I will have to play many smite...

BSOD during Bad Company 2, unknown error, jcgriff2 BSOD files attached

When playing Bad Company 2 I have gotten a consistent BSOD about 1/2 hour into playing. One thing I noticed when using the Forums System Specs is that it showed the Intel HD Graphics from the processor being the primary graphics with a current resolution of 1680x1050x32 while my Radeon 6870 was the secondary graphics with a current resolution of 0x0x0. I was under the impression that the Intel Graphics should automatically be disabled with the install of my 6870. This is my first time posting, please let me know if there is any additional information that is needed and how I can gather it.

Is it possible that the Intel graphics aren't being disabled properly and being overloaded when I play? When I play again I will try to get the code and add it to the post.

I recently built a new system.

Here it is.

Like I said I'm not too familiar with debugging and any help would be appreciated. Sorry I forgot to add the System Health Report. I am not really familiar with BSOD codes and my computer restarted so quickly I was unable to get the exact code.
