Windows 7: BSOD randomly on idle and usually when playing Civilization 5

BSOD randomly on idle and usually when playing Civilization 5

Hi,

I would really appreciate some expert advice. I have done what I can to repair the problem and am now admitting defeat. I've been having random blue screen stops since the day I added itunes match to my itunes account, though I have no idea if there is any relation. For some reason, the Windows system restore only had one prior restore point, and that did not seem to fix the problem. I use the computer mostly for media storage and photo and video work, but occassionally play Civilization on it.

I built this computer nearly 5 years ago and have, over the years, had a few periods where I got BSODs. It turns out that when I originally built it, the heatsink was not seated properly. About a year ago, I added the H50 to my system and things were stable until recently.

To problem solve my current issue, I have run memtest 86 for three passes (about 6 hours) without error. (I also played with RAM timing settings and system voltage settings based on forum posts at the g.skill forum.) I ran prime95 overnight without error. I then figured the problem must be with my graphics card, so yesterday I went out and bought a new graphics card, but that did not fix the problem either.

WhoCrashed suggests the problem is a driver, not hardware, but doesn't say which driver. I've tried turning verifier on, but the system gets unusably slow and (perversely) fails to crash with verifier on. Perhaps I should just wait longer.

Thanks for any and all help and suggestions.

Your blue screen errors are all over the place, which usually signifies a hardware problem, system file corruption, or an underlying driver that is incompatible with your system. Proceed with the following steps.
  1. Update the driver
    Code:
    speedfan fffff880`01941000 fffff880`01948000 Sun Sep 24 07:26:48 2006 (45168798) 00005062 speedfan.sys
    To find information about drivers and their manufacturers, see Driver Reference and Drivers and Downloads respectively.
  2. Run Disk Check with both boxes checked for all drives.
  3. Use SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to check for system file corruption.
  4. Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. If Memtest86+ has no errors after seven passes, run the extended version of Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. You may want to run these overnight as they take a while to complete.
  5. You had a hardware crash, though not in the traditional sense. Still, Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try may be worth looking into.
  6. Since your hardware crash was related to your display driver, and you had another DirectX related crash in a different crash report, recommend Diagnosing basic problems with DirectX
    For display card driver swapping, use the following steps.

    a. Download and install Driver Sweeper
    b. Download the latest driver for your display card
    c. Click Start Menu
    d. Right Click My Computer
    e. Click Manage
    f. Click Device Manager from the list on the left
    g. Click the + next to Display adapter
    h. Right click your display/graphics card device
    i. Click Uninstall (do not hit ok when the dialog box shows up after clicking uninstall)
    j. Check the box to Delete driver software for the device
    k. Click OK
    l. Restart your computer in safe mode
    m. Run Driver Sweeper, select display card manufacturer's drivers, analyze, clean
    n. Restart your computer
    o. Install the latest drivers

What were the results of the memory tests?

Thank you for your help with this.

The memory tests showed nothing when I ran them the first night. However, I reran them again the other night and during the first pass a number of errors came up. After the first pass there were no errors. I am not sure whether these are the result of bad memory, bad settings in the bios, or incompatability between the motherboard and the memory. (Although the memory is of a type and speed supported by the motherboard, the manufacturer does not include it in the list of supported memory modules.) In the past I have spent untold hours researching memory settings on the g.skill site and others and trying them for stability. I thought that I had found stable settings, but I suppose I have not.

Things are pressing at work, so I have not spent much time on the matter. But I need a stable system for both work and to keep my family photos safe on Lightroom. I hate to spend the money, but I think the most efficient option at this point is to get a new motherboard and make sure I buy memory on the manufacturer's supported list. Would you agree?

Sometimes setting the BIOS DRAM voltage to that specified for the RAM modules works. Occasionally the Auto feature in the BIOS does not work as well as the manual option. If that does not work, try setting the voltage to 0.1 Volts higher than that specified for your RAM.

As for overall stability, it is always a good idea to get memory that has been tested by the motherboard manufacturer and is listed in their compatibility table. If you feel you need a new motherboard, you are right that buying memory on the supported list for that motherboard is the best option. Make sure when you install the memory modules that you are well grounded. It is possible to have electrostatic discharge into RAM that is not felt and ruin the RAM without realizing it. It takes very little voltage to ruin RAM, ~400 V, and you will not feel the discharge until it reaches ~1400 V-3000 V.

Thanks again for your help.

I did not realize that static discharge could occur and damage RAM yet remain physically unfelt.

Maybe that is what is wrong with my current RAM.

Regardless, I'll give building a computer another--careful--try this weekend.

Best,

Rob

Yeah, many people do not realize the affects of static discharge. I did not know until a few years ago when I had it explained to me by an electrical engineer. RAM can function fine for a time after being damaged, and then it starts acting strangely and erratically due to the discharge during its installation. Many times, the user is unaware of why the RAM suddenly is failing because it has been slowly failing over time without giving obvious symptoms.



How did the new build go?
