Windows 7: BSOD's Occouring randomly on daily basis

[solved: cause=Xonar drivers] BSOD's Occouring randomly on daily basis

Been having quite a few BSOD issues recently. They seem to be happening at least once per day and i have done some testing with programs i always have open by closing xxx application one day and yyy application the next and nothing has helped.
I also cant figure out if i had installed / updated anything just before issues started.

I have tried using BlueScreenView to have a look through the dump files and see what the problems are but i do not fully understand the program.
As far as i can tell it is claiming the BSOD's are caused by hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe

I have also uploaded a zip file using method 1 (SF_Diagnostics_Tool)

Thanks for any help,
aljowen

Hello mate,

All of your dumps are showing 0x124 bugchecks which basically mean your problem is hardware related, and, as is normally the way with 0x124s the dumps aren't giving any clue as to what the problem actually is. The only way to start to find what your problem actually is will be to run follow the steps below.

Code:

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

Should i ignore where my GPU manual says not to run any stress testing software?

Its probably just a disclaimer but still worth mentioning

I daresay FurMark has been run on countless 560tis in the past mate, it shouldn't harm your GPU at all. Leave that test until last as we'll rule out your CPU, RAM and HDD first, but yes I'd ignore what the manual says regarding that. I take it you're not overclocking anything?

The CPU is running at 4.3Ghz on a motherboards software set up overclock. That is using the "fast" preset which aims for 4.3 and sets everything accordingly. The CPU has been running at that for about 2 years now. The CPU has a 12cm akasa venom cpu cooler on it meaning it doesn't get very hot at all, im 15 mins into prime95 testing the CPU and it is running at 58*c with the cpu fan at 94%. This is pretty typical for me when running simulation heavy games such as BeamNG.

The GPU is factory overclocked, it is the highest clocked model of 560ti that was sold running at 1Ghz factory clocked. That was until Gigabyte quietly replaced it with a 995mhz model, they said they made the change because some customers were complaining about issues with stability. But i have had the GPU in this PC for about 3 3/4 years now and it still runs just as cool as always. Which is an interesting metric in itself, in nearly all games the GPU runs pretty cool even when its maxed out and struggling but in some games by square enix it shoots up to 90*c, it seems to be an issue isolated to their engine, kinda odd. Needless to say every company is blaming each other about that issue . I tend to find that in one or two games the screen may hang for 5 seconds or so because the Nvidia drivers crashed and had to reboot but everything carries on as normal after that.

My RAM is running as close to stock as possible. But the motherboard did a slight blk boost when it did the overclock so that may have interfered with the RAM slightly. But the RAM is at XMP settings.

Just had another BSOD 18 mins into the test. Although i genuinely couldn't tell you if it was just another random BSOD. Since CPU/GPU stress isn't something which i have noticed to cause it.

The crashes happen no matter what i am doing on the PC. Even if i just leave it with the web browser open.

One interesting thing that i realized that i forgot to mention is that when the computer is trying to dump the memory to disk once its reached the blue screen the BSOD tends to freeze at 50% and never get any higher.

Prime95 reported no errors in any of the txt files it left.

Run the HDD checks next (SeaTools and chkdsk), I've a feeling they may find something.

The hard drive passed both of the shorter tests and is now running through the long generic test.
Also attached a CrystalDiskInfo screenshot in case that is useful. At least from there nothing seems weird.

Let us know how the long test goes. Can you turn off the overclock on the ASUS mobo?

I believe so but have never seen the button for it. I guess there must be in the UEFI.

I have been using ASUS's software that runs within the OS. Since that is how you access the automatic overclocking settings. There is a button for "fast" and a button for "extreme" but no button for factory or default. So i may have a look in the UEFI later to see if i can find it since the Software automatically saves any profile so i can just revert back easily.
Failing all else i will try to find and manually tell it to run at stock settings which i could probably find on the internet somewhere.

The long generic test is about 30% done now.
