Windows 7: Random BSOD , 0xA

Random BSOD , 0xA

Hello all,

I have been having quite a few issues on my new build (built 3 months ago). Golden (a very active contributor of the BSOD forum!) has helped me narrow down a few drivers that needed to updated which has helped tremendously in cutting down BSODs. I am now getting a phantom BSOD once in a blue moon which is very annoying so I would like to see if we can narrow down the cause. The last BSOD occurred when the wife was installing a game or two (I saw Trusted Installer in Win Debug) but the others seemed random and once more when I restarted with verifier enabled, started Far Cry 4, and was exiting the game (after I hit escape from the main menu and clicked exit).

Verifier: Enabled
Memtestx86+: Passes (10 Passes - Left on overnight and ran once more overnight)
Furmark Stress Test: Passes (Left running for 4 hours)
Intel CPU Test: Passes
Prime95 Stress Test: Passes (Ran for 6 hours)
SFC: Fails (CBS Log Attached)
WINSUR: Run

CPU: i74790k
RAM: 16 GB (8 GB x 2)Corsair Dominator (Tested on default specs, and XMP with Memtest)
Mobo: Asus Maximus Hero VII
Video: MSI GTX 760
OS SSD: Samsung 840 EVO (Firmware Up to date)

Thank you for the assistance.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

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

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us.

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95
It saves the result as a .txt file in the prime95's folder. Upload the file for us.

Let us know the results.

Hello Arc; Thanks for the help.

Memtestx86+: Passed one test at 8 passes (4 weeks ago) and one at 12 passes when troubleshooting prior BSOD's (3 weeks ago).
Furmark: Ran for 30 minutes and temperature leveled out at 87c (Ran once before 5 hours at 89c) Missed the screenshot and no log found after enabling log per directions.
Prime95: Currently running. Will it automatically save the text file, or is there something I need to do before stopping the test after 2 hours?

It looks like Prime95 was still running strong after 2 hours. I have attached the results from the Prime95 test as requested.

I also ran the Intel Processor Diagnostic tool and it passed all test with flying colors.

Just had another BSOD earlier when the wife was launching TERA (Game), although this time it was a 0xC1 rather than 0x1A.

Any ideas?

Another memory corruption report.
Code:
BugCheck C1, {fffff980658dce10, fffff980658dcbe8, 4501f0, 32}

Are you sure that you tested the RAM with memtest86+ and nothing else? Asking it, because there are programs with deceptively similar names which are incompetent.

If memory is free of error for sure, 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.

I ran Memtest86+ for 18 hours and it found no errors.

I had another BSOD when exiting the game Terra (0x1A on shareduserdata.sys) which would be the second time that particular game has had a BSOD on exiting as well as Far Cry 4. Would the issues indicated in the CBS log cause any of this?

I have attached the dump from 2/23/2015 2:31:53 AM GMT.

Thank you.

Hello all,

The computer had a few more BSOD's when the wife was playing a game and on Skype 2/28- 3/2, and once more today when I was pushing the computer to the limits this afternoon with CPU burner and Far Cry 4 running purposefully attempting to get it to crash.

Note: The last BSOD (3/3/15 - 1446) was the latest one with Verifier enabled (2/28-3/3 DMP's Driver Verifier was not enabled)

EDIT: Using WinDbg, it looks as if audiodg.exe was the source?

Code:

Just a quick update and a friendly reminder that in some extremely rare cases, Memtest86+ will not always catch faulty RAM. The previous sticks of RAM passed all of the stress testing and multiple Memtest86+ runs of 6 passes to 18 passes on default SPD settings, the XMP profile, and manual settings with manufacturer specs.

After having less errors with one stick of RAM installed, I decided it was time to RMA the RAM back to Corsair. The new RAM pair (same model and revision, just different color heat spreaders) is working great without issues.
