Random BSODs for a few months

Hi,

I've been having a lot of BSODs on my new custom built computer at random times. After the last BSOD, my network card doesn't seem to be working anymore. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Run a virus scan with your Anti Virus and then download and run Malwarebytes anti malware.

Malwarebytes | Free Anti-Malware & Internet Security Software

warning   Warning

Make sure you don't enable the free trial



Can you also run these tests.

Stress test your graphics card with Furmark

I recommend running it for around 30 minutes

warning   Warning

Furmark will increase the temperature of your GPU rapidly so keep and eye on your temperatures


Memtest86 will test your RAM

information   Information

Run Memtest86 for at least 8 passes so we get enough information to confirm that your RAM isn't failing


Run a Disk Check to scan for errors

Note   Note

Afterwards go into an Elevated Command Prompt (Run as administrator) and type in sfc /scannow
If it finds errors reboot and run the scan two more times


Run SeaTools to see if your HDD or SSD is failing

Code:
BugCheck 24, {1904fb, fffff880072f1868, fffff880072f10c0, fffff80002e92cc4}

Probably caused by : Ntfs.sys ( Ntfs!NtfsAcquireFcbWithPaging+13a )
Code:
BugCheck 3B, {c0000005, fffff9600008d1a8, fffff880026f9ed0, 0}

Probably caused by : hardware ( win32k!GreCombineRgn+18 )
If all comes back clean then run driver verifier.
Only if everything comes back with no errors.

Enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier -Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information

Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.


warning   Warning

Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point Manually before enabling DV.


Tip   Tip
  • If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
  • If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.


Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Code:
BugCheck 109, {a3a039d89de244f6, 0, f5439b7a35d93b47, 101}

Probably caused by : Unknown_Image ( ANALYSIS_INCONCLUSIVE )

Thanks for your reply.

I just remembered that I had some dump files that I got before I formatted. They are attached.

I ran the tests you told me about. I ran FurMark, and there were no artifacts and the temperature leveled out at 85. I already ran memtest a few weeks ago and it came back normal. I ran disk check and SeaTools and everything was normal. I am currently using the computer with driver verifier enabled.

The dumps are irrelevant if they are before you formatted the HDD.

What about Malwarebytes and the System File Checker?

There was no malware. System file checker found an error, so I rebooted and ran it 2 more times and it was normal.

We'll just have to wait and see if you get any more blue screens.
If so upload the dump files.

By the way rather than using WinRAR can you just zip them up rather than putting them in a .rar archive.
It just makes it slightly easier for everyone, especially if people don't have WinRAR.

What is your AV?
I recommend you uninstall it and use Microsoft Security Essentials instead.

Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows

It has never been known to cause BSODs.

Can you roll back your Nvidia driver to 314.22



If you are unsure how or get stuck then here's some good instructions.
