Windows 7: Intermittent ntoskrnl.exe+7c229 BSOD

02 May 2012   #21

Win 7 Pro x64 + x86
 
 

memtest results

So, presumably I DO have a RAM issue (unless it's relating to the mobo or something). I take it there's no way of knowing which stick/slot is causing the issue until I run every stick in every damn slot, though, right?

Although... it seems to be in the same range every time. So might I gather that it's the second slot along? (They're 2GB sticks, so the error range is just outwith the range of stick 0/1.)

Follow the steps in this link: Memory Diagnostics
Start at step 7 and follow it to determine what's bad.

All individual sticks seem to check out OK in each slot, but...

1 stick: 0 errors
2 sticks: 0 errors
4 sticks: errors on test 6

Would this suggest a PSU problem? Or perhaps mobo failing to address 4 sticks at once?

The trouble is, this motherboard is garbage. I can't try fiddling with voltages or anything like that. So if it can't handle 2GB in 4 slots, I'm buggered.

The compatibility list claims the mobo fully supports my RAM, unless I'm making an incorrect assumption. The listing includes a Corsair "TW3X4G1333C9 G" set in either 2 or 4 slots, and I have two sets of TW3X4G1333C9A. As far as I understand, the A version just has a better heat spreader - but it operates at the same voltage as the TW3X4G1333C9, so surely that shouldn't be an issue?

Does the board have any BIOS updates available? Looks to me like there's 3 here (1002, 1101, and 1302): http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Int...H55M/#download

I've got some sort of connection issue with the forums, so I can't check and see if you've updated your chipset drivers to the latest version available from http://downloadcenter.intel.com

PSU is possible. To check, remove as much stuff from the system as you can (so less power is consumed). If that improves things, then it may be the PSU.

Also, try this free test - it stress' the PSU (but be very, very careful!!!): http://www.ocbase.com/
Run the Power Supply test.

Good luck!

There are BIOS updates available, but they just fix issues I haven't been having and don't have reason to care about. Also, it's not actually that board, it's the SI version with the locked voltages etc.

I just got back to the flat to find that what I'd hoped would be the final memtest (all 4 sticks in) failed at passes 9 and 10. I've never seen it get anywhere near that far without a hitch then suddenly spit out errors. If it's able to come up with errors that late in the run then it's highly possible I okayed individual sticks which were actually bad (I ran 8 passes on each)... so I'm now running it with individual sticks again for more passes.

I'll check out the PSU if this doesn't come up with any results, methinks. Thanks for the info again.

There are undocumented "fixes" in some BIOS updates.
If the BIOS flash doesn't say it's needed, then I leave it until last (but it's still a possibility).
I've seen the undocumented fixes fix a few problems over the last few years.

OK, I'll give that a go as well then. For the time being, I'm running 20 passes on each stick, starting with the new ones (since the problem only appeared after I installed them).

Right. BIOS updated to latest. PSU apparently fine. Memtest86+ stopped spitting out errors. I've had more BSODs nonetheless.

I actually thought I might have sorted it when I discovered some dodgy config in foobar2000 pertaining to nonexistent plugins and an incorrect sound device selection (and had no BSODs for a long time afterwards). The config was copied from my old installation of Windows (on the same machine). Having said that, the whole reason I reinstalled Windows was to see if it'd fix the BSODs. I have been playing Mass Effect 2 on this system fairly non-stop for the past couple of days and it's never once crashed in-game; only when I'm using foobar2000 and/or browsing the web, as far as I recall. Just now, I only had the browser open when it died.

Other than running memtest for an extremely long period (perhaps with pairs of sticks in - old and new - to speed the diagnosis up somewhat) can you think of anything else at all here? Perhaps you'll spot something in the dumps; I've attached the last 5.

I'm thinking that this is looking more and more like a hardware problem.
STOP 0x109 are usually either driver problems or hardware problems - and the hardware problems are usually related to memory.

Despite still having a number of 2009 drivers in your memory dumps, please run Prime95 3 times:
- Blend test
- Small FFT's
- Large FFT's

Run until errors occur - or 24 hours, whichever comes first.
If you can figure out which one of the 3 tests errors out fastest (and slowest) that'll help out later on.

Also, run several of these CPU stress tests: Hardware Diagnostics
