Windows 7: BSOD whilst system idle, no recent changes made.

31 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
BSOD whilst system idle, no recent changes made.

Hi, in the last 2 days I have received 2 BSOD's, the system has been running fine for about 5-6 months with no issues.

I couldn't get the perfmon /report, I get a message saying an error occured whilst generating the report.

Win7, retail, installed fresh 5-6 months ago.

Thanks in advance.

It smells of hardware failure (i.e. single bit flips, bad IPs, etc.).

If you still wanna make sure it's software, then I recommend turning on Driver Verifier. Do not select the following checks: Force Pending I/O Requests, IRP Logging, and Low Resource Sim. Make sure to restart system after you finish setup. If you experience a boot loop afterwards, go into Safe Mode by pressing F8 prior to Windows logo and disable DV there. Provide us any new crashdumps.

Otherwise, you can start doing a battery of hardware tests, as followed:

RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test; Blend; overnight (9+ hours)
GPU: MemtestCL - Run twice (if any of the tests work on your GPU; ATI cards will need to install the ATI APP SDK as it requires OpenCL)
Drives: Seatools - All basic tests aside from the Fix all or the advanced ones.

All of these (excluding MemtestCL) are included in the UBCD if you prefer a Live CD environment (which is the best environment to test hardware on). Note that Prime95 currently does not work on the latest version of UBCD. Also, please provide us temps/voltages using HWInfo with Sensors only option checked. Log two 30-minute instances: one for idle, and one for high load. If you can get the system to crash during high load logging, that's even better.
