Random BSOD's on few week old build.

Hi all,

In the last month I completed a new PC build after my old one finally packed in. Seemed to be working very well, but last 2 days I've now had 4 BSOD. 2 have been browsing the internet. The most recent 2 while playing Football Manager 14. 3 of them had the Memory_management error message and I didn't catch the most recent one, but it was something different.

The members of this website were excellent and incredibly patient with me last time I had this issue back in 2010. Would be incredibly grateful if you could help me this time round. Attached is a folder using the SF Diagnostic Tool (Handy guide, thanks to Capt Jack).

Hi Watson, Just had a quick look at your system details and noticed that your processor is an i5 4570 at 3.2Ghz, however, your motherboard is reporting it as an i5 4670 at 3.4Ghz, I can't tell you much about the BSOD's as I'm not a BSOD guy but it's definitely worth a note that your Processor appears to think it's something else.

As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Uninstall GIGABYTE OC_GURU. But before uninstalling it, run it and set everything to system defaults.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
Next, the BSODs are generally blaming the memory. It may be the physical RAM or may be any driver passing any bad information to the memory.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 continuous passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If it does not show any error, 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

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

That is completely bizarre as I don't even know how to overclock or anything. I just installed the disk stuff with the components and a few updates since then. Very weird indeed. Cheers guys, I'll follow your advice and post back any further problems.

Removed gigabyte OC programme (set everything to default before i did though). Did an update of my gpu drives. Sorted the startup with msconfig and no more blue screens thus far. I have been having the problem where I am now losing signal to my monitor during/before the PC boots. It takes several attempts of turning off the PC and unplugging and replugging the HDMI cable before I can get it to start. Once I'm in it seems to be OK. Very strange but at least I'm over the BSOD hurdle for now.

I'll make a new thread for this new issue.

Thanks guys for your assistance!

It couldn't last unfortunately. I removed one of the hard drives and that sorted out the issues with the monitor signal, but I've had a couple of BSOD's over the last few days with the same Memory_Management message. Hopefully the attachment will shed some light on things.

Thanks in advance once again.

I'll run a memtest later on. Cheers Arc. I'll return with more tomorrow I think.

Ok, so the memtest shows thousands upon thousands of errors, after running for several passes. The Bsod's are coming more regularly at the moment as well. What can I do to solve it My firefox is crashing constantly and it's doing my head in, the last two BSOD's have both been after I've pressed restart firefox after the crash box comes up. I also keep getting an error that my one of my fans is not working, although from a quick look inside through the vent, it looks like they all are. I'll try driver verifier and post back.
