Windows 7: Never ending BSOD

I rolled back flash player to version 9. As it happens mostly on websites that are flash heavy. And it stopped for a couple weeks. So i assumed the problem was fixed. But it just bsod again. With the exact same error.

It crashes @ all default settings or overclocked. At any vcore ranging from 1.375 to 1.42. Ive read sometimes it can be caused by a lack of voltage. Ive turned off c&q anc ce1. Ive tried turning on and off llc. Reset cmos.....etc.

When really thought about it. It happend a day or so after a bios update. Ive tried to roll back to the orginal bios. But it says that it was released before the board was made. So it wont install it. The ones im left with all bsod the same. Right now im running the most current bios .


And that seagate ap says my drives are fine.

Chkdsk finds no errors either.

I havnt wanted to do it. But i think i might rma the mobo. Maybe ill just buy a new one and sell the replacement.

The problem can be so sporadic though. And seems to be causes by certain websites mainly. I can game for hours or run stress tests for days. With no issues.

I somewhat did.

I found that if i disabled adobe flash player in the browser i was using. The crash ceased to happen. I had gotten busy with business and the computer sat for a bit.

After things slowed again i installed all adobe and windows updates . So far so good.

TBH, even though disabling adobe fixed it. I think it had something to do with the mobo.

It didnt like something adobe was trying to access. Never figured out what though.

I took the first BSOD hit when I attempted running Spybot and Malwarebytes simultaneously. It is a two week old system I built with an AMD X6 1090T with 16 GB RAM running 7 Pro 64. Yesterday, throughout the day, anytime I put ANY kind of load on the system it BSOD with a Cache Hierarchy Error on core 4 (always). MY BIOS and many of my drivers are up to date. Not overclocking. I ran CHKDSK yesterday on my RAID 1 disk and it was clean. I ran MEMTEST86+ for 14 hours last night and it was clean. I was thinking it was a CPU problem seeing it was so consistent with core 4. I also thought the perhaps some part of the system had gotten corrupted. I did a System Restore because, by chance, I had done a backup the day before the BSOD's began occurring. The BSOD's continued.

This morning I ran the AMD CPU stability test for an hour without any problems. I have used the system all day, again running multiple malware scans simultaneously and have NOT taken any BSOD's!

The only thing I notice very different from yesterday, is that it was much cooler. I'm wondering if the heat got me. I'm running a big aftermarket Zalman fan on the CPU. Perhaps liquid cooling may be a direction to head in. The next really warm day may tell.

I jinxed myself. After a couple weeks of no BSOD i got 3 of them last night.

All same errors as always 0x124.

My pc has always passed any stress or error test ive run. And ive run everything on it. I even let prime/blend run for close to 24 hours. Not one issue.

Im personally 99.9% sure its something with the mobo. As any clock speed/voltage on cpu and any timings/voltages/speeds on ram result in the same issue.

I need to rma it but ive been to busy to deal with the downtime. Ill probably order a new mobo...eventually.


The issue started about two weeks after the build for me as well. I have a 1055t x6 and 4gb ddr1600 and 7 64 ultimate. So similar builds.

What mobo do you have? Im using an asus m4a87tg evo.



A fatal hardware error has occurred.

Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Cache Hierarchy Error
Processor ID: 4

^^And i bet that error message looks familiar.

It seems we are having the exact same issue.

Hello:
I have an ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 mobo. I found I can BSOD by running Spybot SD. Got rid of that. I had lots of things running today, and I tried to upgrade Adobe Reader 9. Second/s within clicking on "Install" it BSOD'ed. I too can run stress and stability tests on RAM and CPU and it runs fine. Quite squirrelly. I'm just letting it burn in today. I came back and found that Firefox had crashed - at least it wasn't the system. Apps seem to be having problems.
I cleaned my registry using AdvancedSystem Care. There are just so many directions to go in as far as looking at this. I'm not getting any sense of what I should be leaning toward - even hardware or software as of right now.
I have looked at many forum postings re: Cache Hierarchy Errors and there are LOTS of thoughts on it, but I have never seen any post a response that it was fixed, and here is what THEIR problem was.

I am going to do a couple things:
CPU - ran the AMD stability test, and it did take an error.
1) Reseat the CPU. I fixed a system before doing this
2) Try a second CPU. I have an older AMD that I think will fit in this socket.
RAM -
1) Remove all the dimms and very lightly "erase" them with a soft pencil eraser. The mainframe engineers used to do this all the time. I have had it work wonders as well. Put additional new memory in a laptop, and after a couple weeks some of it just disappeared. Removed it, "erased it", put it back in, and never had a problem again.
2) Remove dimms and see if it runs OK until one possible gives problems.

Of course, I will stress the system after taking any of these actions.

Hello:
Reseated the CPU. Just previous to this, I was taking lots of strange errors, including messages that I should shut down the system immediately because the CPU fan wasn't working - when it in fact was, and temps were down in the 25 C range. Firefox kept dying by itself as well as other apps. After reseating the CPU I ran the AMD Stability Test for 17 hours at 100% usage. No errors. I also simultaneously ran multiple apps doing disk scans, video, music, Adobe, etc. without a hiccup. I also was concerned about heat causing the problems, and by doing all of the above, it was the hottest I have seen it: CPU 72 C, and MOBO 69 C. I was using over 6 GB of RAM. I was pleasantly surprised at how fast the system was running the applications with the Stability Test running simultaneously. MS 7 was doing some fine O/S management.
Now, I am going to let it idle to see if cool affects it. It is a cold day here for a change. If nothing odd happens, I am going to continue to let it run 24x7, and not do anything else to it, except use it for what it was intended.

I have continued to run stability tests on the processor, and chkdsks, etc. to no avail. I have reseated the CPU and cleaned and reseated memory. I continue to occasionally get odd ball errors different than what occurred in the past. The errors seem to repeat and then go away to be replaced by some other error. Yesterday, RAID had an error. I have also found that the BIOS altered the options available to a list of speeds I have never seen before. I have also seen corrupted applications where I have had to reinstall the software. I RMA'ed the motherboard this morning, and will receive a new MOBO in two days to try out. It is possessed of evil spirits.
