Windows 7: Constant Random BSODs on a 5 days old system

24 Aug 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64

Microsoft drivers are assumed to be stable, so there is no point in stressing them. It will just slow down your computer.

The way Verifier works, it stresses all drivers checked, in hopes of causing them to BSOD. When it happens, we can look at the dump and hopefully find the cause.

Just use your computer normally while Verifier is running, but don't start anything that you can't afford to lose in a BSOD.

"After a reboot, driver verifier should be enabled."

Ok, so what I did last time was what the topic said, and rebooting went fine(is that the clear sign, or am I supposed to use my computer during the time the verifier is on?

What I also did was during the driver selection, I clicked on "show not loaded drivers" and selected them all except the windows and the 2 named.
Then I couldn't reboot. During signing out it gave a BSOD(c1).
My guess is that I wasn't supposed to check the not loaded drivers, so what I'll do NOW is reboot again with only the loaded drivers selected. brb

back after a reboot. No problems so far. What I'll do NOW is play a game with driver verification on until my system crashes.
Or is there something else I should test?

Just use your system just as you normally would. Play whatever games you normally play, go to the sites you normally do, and pretend Verifier is not running.

If it's a driver issue you're having, then hopefully yes.

If the dump still doesn't point to a specific cause, we can then assume it is either a hardware problem, or low-level driver.

Ok, I got my BSOD. Not really at a nice time though:
I was getting ready for bed and wanted to shut my computer down. So I Clicked Shutdown.
And it was shutting down and BOOF, BSOD.

So I can't seem to shutdown xD Because the system will reboot after the BSOD xD

Here are the Files:

Thanks for looking into this again

I've experienced the same BSOD's as you and struggled for a couple months until I found the problem. I suspect the culprit in your case, as it was in mine, is the Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 M/B itself!

After 3 weeks of random BSOD's with a new system last Spring, I ended up RMA'ing the RAM, which didn't help. Finally received Gigabyte RMA authorization and returned the board. Week and half later, got it back with no explanantion. After calling, I was told they couldn't find anything wrong with it. Spoke with the manager and convinced them to allow a board replacement. When the new one arrived, it worked fine for a day and half but guess what, starting spitting out BSOD's and random restarts.

Long story short, I just ended up replacing the M/B with a MSI 790X-G45 and have run two weeks of torture tests without a single hiccup... it's been perfect!

Check out the Newegg customer satisfaction reviews and you'll see many reports of the same issue. Some have "fixed" their boards by raising the Northbridge voltage by 0.1 volts (directly from Gigabyte technician), while others have raised their PCIx and Vcor by .15 -.25 volts. But in my particular case, it didn't help.

Always liked their products but will never buy another one of these boards. If you got the resources, run, don't walk and replace the board. You'll hopefully save yourself a lot of headaches down the road.

@BWpotter, that sounds very scary! I don't want my mobo to be, well broken

I Decided to stress my system a little by running a benchmark(performance test by And it gave me another 3B crash.

Looks like Gigabyte's Dynamic Energy Saver Advanced program is the cause here, not the first time by any means.

Please remove it, and see what happens.

Just deinstalled it, didn't need it anyway.
The question is, I have to Reboot now. My guess is I'll get the crash on shutdown again(the C1 one)
I'll let you know in a sec
