About a month ago my computer started experiencing crashes, at first it was just every once in a while, then it escalated to around 5 times a day. Typically it crashes when I access flash-based games and videos, but it has occurred at random, e.g. no sensible correlation between what I was doing and the crashes. It was very odd in that I couldn't play Facebook games or access Hulu in Chrome, but I could in Firefox, but Firefox also crashed when accessing different flash games.

I tried reinstalling my webbrowsers, disabling "hardware acceleration", using the old flash plugin (10). However, nothing worked, the crashes persisted. I pretty much gave up and deleted all the partitions and reinstalled a clean version of windows. (This was last Sunday night I believe) Initially everything functioned perfectly, I could access flash things in any browser without any problems. Then today, Thursday morning, I was trying to watch a music video on youtube through Facebook and it crashed, that is the screen distorts into a whole bunch of lines, then it must reboot. I let the computer boot up to Windows and I got the following message:

Problem signature Problem Event Name
BlueScreen OS Version 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.48
Locale ID 1033

Files that help describe the problem
C:\Windows\Minidump\092012-26005-01.dmp
C:\Users\JT\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-70559-0.sysdata.xml

I downloaded WinDbg and tried to access the files listed above, but I kept getting an error that the debugger was using the wrong symbols or something? The second one kept giving me access errors and I couldn't remember how to display OS hidden files.

Next, I ran:

sfc /scannow

It came back: "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

I have installed Memtest86+ onto a flashdrive and intend on running it when I go to bed and am at school, but wanted to see what others thought before wasting 10hrs or whatever scanning thoroughly through 8gigs of RAM or whatever?

I suspect perhaps it's a Windows update that is causing conflictions somewhere? It seems odd that it would be hardware, I mean it worked for a couple of days, then something got installed without my intimate knowledge and the crashes randomly started happening again? I may just install a dual boot of linux and see if that causes any errors. It's just that my homework requires Visual Studio, Microsoft Office and various other programs only available on Windows and I hate Wine, so I really do need my stupid Windows...On the bright side, I can run Skyrim on the highest settings and it has Never crashed, pretty much only when I am using my webbrowser?! Anyhow, if you have any ideas as to what is causing this and what I should do to ameliorate this problem once and for all, I would be eternally grateful! Thanks!

Oh, and here is a dxdiag log: (hopefully nothing here that shouldn't be public? haha)

Update: Ran "Who Crashed" and got the following results...Says it's hardware based, but it only does it when accessing flash, so I am skeptical? Also, deleted some seemingly useless data because I am over the char count.

On Thu 9/20/2012 6:30:17 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\092012-26005-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: hal.dll (hal+0x12A3B) 
Bugcheck code: 0x124 (0x0, 0xFFFFFA80084C3028, 0xB67D2000, 0xFC000135)
Error: WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR
file path: C:\Windows\system32\hal.dll
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System

description: Hardware Abstraction Layer DLL
Bug check description: This bug check indicates that a fatal hardware error has occurred. This bug check uses the error data that is provided by the Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA). 
This is likely to be caused by a hardware problem problem. This problem might be caused by a thermal issue. 
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.

1 Answer 1

This really does sound like a hardware related issue. It could be a bug in your BIOS, video driver or even SATA/RAID driver for your mobo that gets triggered by some call which Flash makes but, as it looks, Skyrim doesn't.

What are your system specs? I assume that you have the latest version of your BIOS, video driver and any other hardware that's on your system.

You should definitely run memtest, RAM is the best place to start when troubleshooting issues such as this.

I ran memtest and the results came back clean, no detected errors. What's the next test, try to update BIOS? My drivers should all be up to date and I am assuming BIOS, but I haven't specifically checked, I will look into that. –  Mr_CryptoPrime Sep 20 '12 at 12:08
    
What motherboard do you have? –  Marko Kudjerski Sep 21 '12 at 16:17
    
I see that your video driver dates to July/27. The date on AMD's site is Aug/15 for the latest download. Ensure that you have version 12.8 of Catalyst software and if not grab it here. –  Marko Kudjerski Sep 21 '12 at 16:24
    
My motherboard is an Asus M4A87TD Evo. I ran the update utility directly from Catalyst, but I am downloading and installing it manually from the link you gave me, hopefully it will help? Thanks. –  Mr_CryptoPrime Sep 21 '12 at 18:49
    
Seems to have fixed the (seemingly?) unrelated monitor adjustment issue I had with 1080p, I guess time will tell if flash is still going to be evil to me. I switched to HTML5 on youtube, so hopefully that reduces Flash use and crash probability? :) –  Mr_CryptoPrime Sep 21 '12 at 19:06
