Windows 7: BSODs

20 Jul 2010   #1

Windows 7 x64
 
 
BSODs

Getting BSODs, ran some of the dumps through the Debugging Tools for Windows but couldn't make any sense of it.

Worth mentioning is that in addition to the BSODs I sometimes (rarely lately) have freezes where my entire PC just freeze up and I can't do anything - I have to shut it down by holding the power button.

Had my PSU replaced a couple of months ago so that is new.
My Motherboard and CPU is only a couple of months old as well.
Some of my harddrives are a few years old.
My graphics card 2-3 years old.

My system spec is in my profile.

Attached are the files needed as per the BSOD Posting Instructions.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Just ran "SFC /SCANNOW", as is suggested in some of the other threads, with the following result:

Code:
C:\Windows\system32>SFC /SCANNOW

Beginning system scan.  This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

I wonder about your PSU with all those hard drives.
Try unplugging all but the OS hard drive and see if that improves things.

More to follow once the memory dumps are finished....

8 memory dumps, from 12 May to 20 Jul 2010
5 different STOP errors, with 3 different causes blamed
This is most likely a hardware error.

Please start with these free diagnostics:
Quote:
H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
HD Diagnostic (read the details at the link)

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Malware (read the details at the link)

Then, if the above tests pass, I'd try these free stress tests:
Quote:
FurMark download site: FurMark: Graphics Card Stability and Stress Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
- Click "Quit" to exit
Quote:
Prime95 download site: Free Software - GIMPS
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead. (run all 3 if you find a problem and note how long it takes to error out with each)
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
This won't necessarily crash the system - but check the output in the test window for errors.
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.

Thanks for the reply!

Started with removing 2 of my HDDs and moving them to another computer - meaning I'm down to 3 HDDs in the PC getting BSODs.
Ran the ESET online scan, found no infections.
~12 hours of memtest (11 passes) - zero errors.

Going to run the HDD diagnostic overnight but just had another BSOD so figured I would post that dump as well in case it gives any new info.

Thanks again!

EDIT: 24min of Furmark, temp seemed to not go higher than 107░C, minimum fps of 24 (how do I know if this is good or bad or if my graphics card passed or failed?)

EDIT2: Ran Prime95 for a while - will run for a longer duration tomorrow but here's the results:

[Jul 22 08:49] Torture Test completed 54 tests in 1 hours, 36 minutes - 0 errors, 0 warnings.
[Jul 22 08:49] Torture Test completed 59 tests in 1 hours, 36 minutes - 0 errors, 0 warnings.
[Jul 22 08:49] Torture Test completed 59 tests in 1 hours, 36 minutes - 0 errors, 0 warnings.
[Jul 22 08:49] Torture Test completed 60 tests in 1 hours, 36 minutes - 0 errors, 0 warnings.

With Furmark - if the video card starts to melt you know that there's a problem
Seriously, we just look for temps and for problems with the display (black screen, distorted screen, etc).

You can't tell from just one dump file if it's a hardware error - it's the pattern of errors that suggests that it's hardware.

That being said, try running Driver Verifier according to these instructions:
Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like. From my limited experimentation it makes the BSOD's come faster.
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

If that doesn't work, post back and we'll have to see about fixing the registry entry off-line:
Code:
Delete these registry keys (works in XP, Vista, Windows 7):
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDrivers
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDriverLevel
More info on this at this link: Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Windows drivers for advanced users
If it continues to point at different errors - or at Windows errors - then it's probably confirming that it's hardware.

Activated Driver Verifier, had a BSOD instantly in a Virtual CD app I installed a few days ago - it's not been installed since I started having the BSODs - I uninstalled it and my PC has been running for ~30 hours now with driver verifier on without any BSOD.

Attaching four minidumps anyway - these may or may not all be related to that Virtual CD application.

What is the next step if I don't get a BSOD in the next day or so with Driver Verifier on?

If you dont get anymore BSOD crashes, then it is probably safe to turn driver verifier off....

Sorry for the very slow reply.

20 minutes of Furmark with no issues.
I had a week or so without BSODs, but they have returned.
What is the next step? Any point in reformatting or is it definitely a hardware issue? If so, how do I determine what hardware?
