Windows 7: BSOD

BSOD

Hey there,

About a month ago I build a new PC and since that time I have a lot of BSOD problems.
My OS is Win 7 pro x64. I got it from MSDN.

At first I thought it was an issue with conflicting programs so I threw away avg and bittorrent. This helped a lot but the bsod is still there, although not as frequent.

As far as I know all the drivers are up to date.
motherboard drivers:
GA-770TA-UD3 (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE
and graphics drivers:
ATI Radeon
I got the latest beta bios installed in the hope that would solve the problem, but no such luck.

I reďnstalled about 8 times now, but that doesn't solve anything anymore.

I ran memtest86+ for about a day. there were no errors.
I run speedfan from tome to time, it shows good temps. When the CPU runs at 100% the highest temperature that I've seen was about 42-44 degrees

Now most bsod come when I play starcraft 2 online, but it sometimes happens as well when I watch a movie on youtube.

And I don't know if it is related but a few windows installements back I had a lot of problems with corrupting files. I checked them on another pc and they weren't corrupt at all.

I really don't enough about pc's to solve this problem, so any help will be greatly appriciated.

Hello and Welcome !

Seems like all the crashes are pointing to Direct X Driver which could be caused by Display card. I would recommend to run certain test https://www.sevenforums.com/748030-post2.html make sure you run all the tests.

Thank you for replying so fast, I really appreciate it.

There was a new update for the graphics card available today, I don't know If this makes any difference, but anyway. Since these tests all have to run for a very long time, I'll update this post when I get some results, but for now I ran Prime.

Prime results:
First the blend test, after ten minutes core five had an error. temp of the cpu was 49 degrees max.
After that I ran the small ffts test. I ran it for 23 test and had no errors before I stopped it myself. Max cpu temp was 51 degrees.

The memtest I ran for about a day with no errors. But I did this about two weeks ago.

I had no time to run the hdd test yet.
The furmark site had maintenance so I couldn't dowload the program at this time.

I will post the other results as soon as possible, and again thanks for the help.

Your Most Welcome ! You said you got some error while running Prime95 do you remember what was it ?

hey,

the prime error was: FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.4985351563, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.

I ran memtest today again for 8 hours, there were no errors.

Update:
I ran furmark, everything went fine. Max temp was 62 degrees and there were no problems.
I ran chkdsk as well but there were no problems either.
I tried to run the hdd from samsung but the HUTIL tool doesn't work.

Are you or were you overclocking?

The fatal error means there was a error in the calculations.
Or in other words, the system is not stable.

Unstable system can and will cause corruption, BSODS etc. Quite simply, the CPU is making mistakes.
This could be CPU or RAM related, but seeing as MemTest is passing, it may just be a CPU issue..


I would let Prime go for 10Hrs. as a Blend test. But as always, keep in mind that just because Prime passes 10hrs, only means the system seems stable.
And 99.9% of the time, should be.

However, on occasions, some minor issues may pop up.

If its failing within a few minutes, this isn't good.


If the Rounding error comes up again, it may likely be related to the CPU itself.



If you are Overclocking, you may want to start backing down a little at a time and find a stable point.
Once you find that stable point, to OC any higher will require additional Vcore.

Also keep in mind, if Memtest passes, it means the RAM itself is good.
You can still get memory errors under Prime, related to NB for example.
And although its very rare, there are cases when MEMtest passes, and Prime fails and the culprit is a bad RAM module.

If this is such a case for you, testing with 1 RAM module at a time will help isolate the issue.

hey,

Thanks for the reply.

As to overclocking, I left the system in its optimized defaults and never clocked anything over. I will test the ram one by one now to see if anything comes up but I have a question.
When you say "If the Rounding error comes up again, it may likely be related to the CPU itself." do you mean that the cpu is just broken and I need a new one, or that it can be fixed with a software update or something?

update:
I just ran prime and within seconds five of the six cores crashed wit these errors.

FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.

In all honesty, I was assuming you were overclocking.

The fact its crashing so quickly is a stability issue. it almost certainly points to a piece of Bad hardware.
Being as you are not Overclocking, it makes it a bit tougher to pinpoint.
The problem Could be the CPU itself, Motherboard, or a RAM Module.

But, before I get ahead of myself, lets try this.

---> Your RAM is DDR3 1333 (9-9-9-24) Correct?
If Im looking at the correct ones here, you need to be sure its set at 1.5V @ 9-9-9-24 and 1333 Speeds or less.

---> Can you find out what version of bios you have?
It appears the minimum you need for the 6core CPU are the F3 bios (5/13/2010)
If your bios are F1 or F2 we need to update them.

Double check your Memory settings.
Make sure that the Voltage, Timings, Speed are set the way they should be.
(on rare occasions it can be set inappropriately)

Also, while your in the bios, double check the rest of your settings. Voltage, and speeds of CPU etc.


With optimized default settings, it should be all OK, but its certainly worth double checking.

In fact, if you want to go ahead and reset the bios to 'Optimized Defaults" again, it certainly would not hurt anything.


If all of the above is OK:

1) Pull ALL of your RAM out of the system.

2) Insert just 1 stick, in the first MOBO slot.

3) Test.
If it fails or passes, remove it it and set it aside.
(Just so you know which stick fails and which pass)

4) Put in the next Module and Test again.

Do this for each RAM module and let us know the results please.


If by chance they both fail, try again ..
Only this time, move to the next RAm slot on the Motherboard.


The point here is to see if any of the RAM modules will test as good by themselves.

Excellent suggestions Wishmaster.

After running the above tests, D/L CPUZ and post the CPU, Mainboard, Memory and SPD tabs.

In the start menu search box, type 'Snipping Tool' then enter, select screen area you want to post, save to convenient place, add to your next post using this method, How to Post a Screenshot in Seven Forums.

This will give Wishmaster and others information on the details of your system.

Check the CPUZ memory tab if you are running in unganged mode.

If after the above tests and suggestions, your still having crashes, you may need to set your RAM to 1066MHz, as some AMD AM3 CPUs have integrated memory controller issues at those speeds.

According to the newegg reviews on this board it is required that you must update the bios F3 in order to run a 6 core processor. There are several complaints to that effect. Good call on that Wishmaster.

The problem is that, according to the complaints at Newegg, you can't flash the bios while the 6 core processor is installed. So this may be a consideration before the bios flash is attempted. If that isn't the problem then others mentioned it was required to adjust some of the bios voltage settings to get the board stable.

Quote below:
Cons: Board has one of the ugliest/oddest layouts. It is more of a molded mATX/ATX board and it is a rather pain to fit into some cases. It may state that it has 140W CPU support, but not after it has been flashed with a revised BIOS. It won't flash regardless with a X6, so if you plan on running an X6 with this board, (as I did on a budget), you need an X2 or X4 to flash it before inserting an X6 onto the board. The dual-bios isn't needed and on-board video wouldn't hurt.
