Windows 7: BSOD random while idling or during light tasks.

BSOD random while idling or during light tasks.

Just put together a hardly used E5-2680 Xeon workstation. CPU and Intel DX79SI MB had been used for 1 week in a test rig. I had noticed that in the mornings the computer was at the login screen. On login, there would be an error report and to "check for solutions."

I have actually seen 5 BSOD happen...once 5 minutes after completing 8 hours of Prime95, others when the computer is at idle.

I have booted MemtextX86+ and ran 2 full passes with no errors. Temps all seem to be completely in specs.
Since I just put the machine together, havn't tried removing parts yet. The only change from when the computer was first built back on June 1st, was an upgrade from an older Geforce 560 to a Geforce 970.

All drivers are up to date as far as I can tell. Have removed AVG, and am trying Avast...same issues.

BSOD Error Code is 0x0000001E, last crash.

System Specs:
Intel E5-2680 XEON
Intel DX79SI Motherboard
16 GB ram - 4 channel
Vertex2 SSD - 120 Gb system drive
2 x Western Digital 1 TB drives (data and archive)
PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750w

Attached are the dump files. I need my machine to be available at night....rendering, cad design, etc. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Hi darkronin619.

Sorry to say, but your issue is not determined, and I cannot guide you to a specific way till now. Because there is only one dump included in the zip, and that one is having symbol error while loading with windbg.

I would suggest you to wait for a few more time, and let the PC BSOD for a couple more time. Dont run any disc cleanup program like CCleaner etc within this time, to make it sure that the dumps are not being deleted.

Hopefully we will be able to have a solution here.

In the mean time, you 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. And you have a lot unnecessary things there.
  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.

Thanks for the quick tips regarding the Startup Processes. Now do you intend I disable all to narrow down possible causes of the BSOD, or just as a common practice?

I'll keep collecting and submitting Dumps as they (unfortunately) happen.

Thank you again for the help!

Here's 2 more dumps. One the previous night, computer was at idle, and the next happened 7 minutes ago while browsing the web. Looks like the same stop error.

Good job.

The issue is the Intel(R) C600 series chipset SATA AHCI Controller, the Intel Rapid Storage driver.

Update it from Intel Download Center. The Driver Update Utility will be helpful there.

Let us know the situation after doing it.

Used the Intel update utility. Swore I had installed everything manually from Intel, but the utility didn't even "detect" any of the already installed Intel drivers.

Went ahead and installed everything, minus the Infrared Driver (I have this disabled in BIOS cause I don't have a sensor, yet)
Chipset Driver and Storage Driver both install fine, but Intel utility says they failed and do not record the current installed version being installed. So for no BSOD's yet.

Gonna give it through the weekend, and if I don't get a crash by Tuesday morning, I think it's been licked.

Now that is a better decision. Check which driver is active now.
  1. Click the Start Button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the Start Menu Search box and press Enter.
  2. Double click to expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI Conreoller".
  3. Right click the Items below it and click properties > Deiver > Driver deatils". Is it showing msahci.sys there?
Let us know.

The listings are a tad different in the Device Manager than you describe. Originally, I believe when Windows7 was first, brand new installed without any of the Intel updates, that the IDE/ATAPI listed was present, but after the Intel Storage Controller install, it disappeared and was replaced with the Disk Drives category, and the Storage Controllers category popped up.

Attached is a screenshot with the instructions and what is actually available.

It seems to be SCSI to me. And as it is SCSI, it should be the iastor driver still now, not msahci.

Let us check it. Right click on the highlighted item in your disc management ....
Attachment 365752
Then select "properties > Deiver > Driver details". Which driver does it show there?

EDIT: I consulted with my guru essenbe who says this is common for RAID setup. Are you aware of the fact that which Intel IRST driver you have installed? There is a RAID mode driver there, too, of the same name. So that is a big possibility. Boot into the BIOS and see which Storage Controller mode is set there .... IDE, or AHCI or RAID. Let us know.

I will also wait to know the driver shown under driver details.
