Windows 7: BSOD - various random 0x000000 codes, even when idle.

BSOD - various random 0x000000 codes, even when idle.

Hi, I have been experiencing multiple BSOD for a few weeks now. They are not triggered by a specific action, as they occur even when idle from first being turned on. They can occur after a matter of minutes or hours after use. They are also not consistently the same 0x000000 error code. Please see the attached

I believe they may be linked to a driver issue, or perhaps hardware. Additional symptoms relate to USB ports including peripheral hardware freezing from idle (e.g. network adapter, keyboard, mouse) and the network adapter needing to be reset upon reboot - windows auto update has had some problem updating the optional automatic update driver for this recently.

Specs are within the attached as well.
Any help identifying what the problem is and how to fix would be really appreciated.

Thank

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable!:-

AMD OverDrive Removal - Step 1:
AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems.

If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Uninstall". Reboot for changes to take affect.
Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.

If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

Thanks Yussi, very comprehensive reply! I have updated all drivers with the exception of the Broadcom 802.11 USB Network Adapter Driver as I simply could not find a suitable update or that I was actually using it?! Today is the first day without a BSOD! Will keep you posted if I experience any more and continue on with the AMD overdrive suggestion and stop 0x0124 advice if necessary. Or if none is experienced in next week or so, mark as solved.


Thanks again

Rob

hey again,

All drivers now updated and BSOD's have decreased but still take place. Latest debug files and minidump attached. They seem to all be around USB related problems bug e.g. 0x0FE, Bugcode_usb_driver and when restarting the first restart has unresponsive keyboard and mouse (which are plugged into USB).

Continued help is appreciated.

What except keyboard and mice do you have plugged into the USB ports? You might want to unplug the rest and see if it helps.

I only have keyboard mouse and wifi adapter connected via usb - Nothing else. I completed the USB driver general fix guidance but experienced two BSOD's since that time on 21st April. These were new codes to me, 101 and 124 from memory.

I have also run memtest86 to be thorough and in 15 passes had 0 errors.

Latest files attached.

The 0x101 bugcheck indicates the CPU has not responded to an interrupt within the time interval, generally this is caused by a faulty CPU but software (Mainly drivers) can cause this bugcheck.
Similar principles apply for the 0x124 bugcheck in terms of the cause.

Minidumps are pretty much useless when analyzing 0x101 bugchecks because they only contain the context for the processor that was awake and called the KeBugCheckEx routine.
I think for the time being we shall leave that and test the CPU with Prime95 if you already haven't done so.
Please follow these instructions.

Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Run Prime95 for around 2 hours and let us know the results.

Code:

A machine check exception is caused when the CPU finds a fault and reports it, the CPU generally gets the blame but it doesn't mean it's the cause.
However if we look at the WHEA record we can see the error is in the cache of the CPU which mostly means the CPU is at fault.

EDIT: By the way if Prime95 crashes during the test please try it in safe mode as it should rule out the driver problem.

In addition to what Thedoctor44 said, I would strongly suggest you use a CPU temp monitoring program. Prime 95 will cause your CPU temps to climb rapidly. If it gets close to your max CPU temp, stop the test. If you do not have a CPU temp program, I use either Core Temp or Real Temp. Both are free, but as always, opt out of any add ons they offer. If you are overclocking, stop and set everything to default values.

Thanks to you both, I have speedfan 4.49 already installed and I assume this is also sufficient? I ran Prime95 for a few minutes and the CPU and core temperatures jumped up to 63 and 65 respectively. From my rudimentary understanding I thought 62 degrees C was the upper limit? Sitting idle / low usage they are both usually below 40 degrees C, which they returned back to after 5 minutes or so when stopping.

Can I ask what is the safe limit for me to continue running the prime95 test at before I should be stopping it for fear of over heating?

Thanks Rob.
