I'm afraid we may very well be dealing with CPU failure here. A good majority of your crashdumps report very unusual behavior from the CPU, and one especially is evident of CPU problems when the crash is caused by a bad memory reference despite the fact that the instruction opcode that triggered it doesn't even attempt to touch memory!

Just to be sure, if you have your system overclocked in any way at all, please reset all of it to factory defaults. Uninstall all software that came with your motherboard, including any monitoring or overclocking software. Update the drivers for your video card, your motherboard and all its components and your BIOS, since everything I've found is well over a year old.

If none of that resolves your issue, then it's definitely time to start looking for a replacement CPU. The only other hardware I could see that might even remotely have a chance of causing this is the motherboard, but it's very seldom. Understand also that if you've inadvertently had your CPU running hot over extended periods of time, it will cause permanent damage that would simply slay any chance of using it reliably.


Pretty much all of them are odd in that the bugcheck claims one memory address is addressed wrong yet another completely different one is referred too by the faulting IP. However a couple, like this one (2nd to oldest) is a good example of some serious CPU problems:

0: kd> !analyze -v
*                                                                             *
*                        Bugcheck Analysis                                    *
*                                                                             *

An exception happened while executing a system service routine.
Arg1: 00000000c0000005, Exception code that caused the bugcheck
Arg2: fffff8000316335f, Address of the instruction which caused the bugcheck
Arg3: fffff8800a5f3f50, Address of the context record for the exception that caused the bugcheck
Arg4: 0000000000000000, zero.

When looking up the TEST opcode in the AMD Developer Manual, Volume 3, it describes that the TEST opcode will accept either a memory address reference or a register and simply perform a bitwise logical AND operation on it with the other operand. We can evidently see here that neither the first nor second operand for this is using a memory address, but rather the register rbx. If it were a memory address, rbx would be in brackets signifying that the value in rbx is a memory address that it should reference. There is no memory reference here, yet this is what caused the fault by accessing bad memory. I've only seen this so far in cases regarding motherboard of CPU problems, with CPU most frequent.

Im sorry to ask this but im not good at updating/drivers/bios or any of that could you please give step by step directions like do i need to install the most resont or every single driver to date?

This system is custom-built, yes? If so, you will need to go to the manufacturer website for your motherboard (Asus) and download the updated drivers and BIOS specifically for your motherboard there. Also note their list of software, which you can use to figure out which motherboard software is installed on your PC (if any) that you'll need to uninstall.

Be aware that this most likely is not the problem, and that you just have a bad CPU.

Random blue screens on several PC's
We just deployed several PC's but about 5% are blue screening with no specific errors I can find. Nothing in the event logs either... Replaced the memory on some but still doing it. Any help will be appreciated.
