Windows 7: Random 109 BSOD errors


10 Jan 2012   #11

Win 7 Home Premium 64bit
 
 

I tested my old G.Skill memory on the first motherboard overnight with no issues, but I replaced it anyway because I kept having crashes. Then it kept crashing with the new Corsair memory, so I got a new motherboard...and it kept crashing, so I tested the new memory (I also added two more sticks of the Corsair, so I tested all of it over night) and the memory was fine. I just removed the original two sticks of Corsair and left the newest ones in to see if that changes anything.

Back to one of my original questions: Could these crashes be caused my faulty memory on the video card?

I just want to make sure this can't be virus/malware related before assuming it is the graphics card. Testing the temperatures of the graphics card as suggested in my previous post may give an indication, as well.
The hard drives are the same as well (my bad). At one point, I did a clean install of Windows on the SSD to see if that would fix it, but the crashes continued. I was running MSI Afterburner, so I could always see my card temp before. I think I mentioned in my original post, one of the fans on the cooler went out, and the card would climb to high 80s, sometimes 90 when really taxed, but I thought that was high and figured out one of the fans died. I put a Zalman cooler on it and the temps have not gone past the 70s since.

However, I am wondering if the extra heat for a while killed something on the card.

Malwarebytes (deep scan) only came back with a couple of little ad things that were not critical. I always have MS Security Essentials running, and I have pretty good surfing practices.

They very well could be. Run the temperature monitor I posted in my previous post to see if anything is overheating, first.

The crashes also could be due to your SSD hard drive as it had errors that had to be fixed. I would run another disk check in the same manner as before (only for the primary drive, the secondary basically looks fine) and continue running them until you get no errors. If you continue to have errors after the third try, contact the hard disk manufacturer for troubleshooting steps. Once we rule out the hard disks, we can focus on the graphics card a little more.

Ran HW Monitor and my card is running around 68 while PVPing in SWTOR, so it's not too hot now.

You aren't getting the error the STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting thread applies to, but it has some nice graphics testing utilities that could shed some light. Try them out and report back. You can run the disk check overnight if you want.

Yeah, I'll run it again when I go to bed, then run it again before work. I'll check out the video thread.

The video thread has a stress test for the GPU, and there is also a video memory stress test listed in post #3 that would be worth looking at. Really, all the steps in the first three posts are worth going through (other than registry cleaning as you will note usasma seems against these and I am as well).

Ok, ran Disk Check last night and got this (I assume the highlighted line is what I was shooting for?). I won't know if I have any further errors until I get a chance to use my computer tonight after work. I ran the graphics mem test (within windows) last night and it didn't come up with any errors either.

After the hard drive came up clean, I reinstalled my sound card and RAM to see if that was the only issue (and because I had changed too many things at once). It ran well for about a day, then BSOD again. I took out the sound card again, used Driver Sweeper to clean up and....BSOD again. I took out the same two sticks of RAM and I've run for around 2 says with no issues, so it looks like it might have been the RAM (even though I didn't get any errors). If I make it through this week with no BSODs, I am going to retest the other RAM, and send it back to Corsair for two new sticks.

Thanks again for the help and I will keep you posted.
