Windows 7: Multiple BSODs at random moments

11 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Multiple BSODs at random moments


problemes started only a few days ago
I upgraded my ram to a pair of Corsair Vengeance @ 1866 Mhz (2x4gb)
Everything was fine, but Battlefield 3 starting crashing every time, it could be after 1min or 1h of play time
My CPU was overclocked at 4Ghz, so I put it back to its stock frequency wich is 3.3 Ghz, but it did not solve the problem.
Starting maybe yesterday or the day before that, only while playing BF3 I was getting BSOD instead of bf3 crashing to desktop, I used 'bluescreenview' to see it was ntoskrnl.exe the problem. Reinstalled windows, but nothing change, still bsod while playing bf3 (even tested with mafia 2, same result). Then I started having BSOD while only surfing on internet, and every time it was a different driver the cause of BSOD.

I ran every test I could think of, ram, cpu, etc but everything seems to be ok so I don't understand

My spec:
Asus Crosshair V Formula
AMD Phenom II x6 1100T Black Edition 3.3 Ghz (cooled with Corsair H80)
Corsair Vengeance 2x4Gb 1866Mhz 9-10-9-27
Twintech GTX 570 1280mb GDDR5
SSD Samsung Series 830 128gb sata 3
HDD western digital caviar green 5400 rpm 1000gb sata 3
OCZ Modxstream pro 700W

I believe (but I am not sure of anything...) it is the motherboard, because the first time that computer booted, the motherboard was touching the side panel, and it just wouldnt boot until I saw that ... then it booted but the cpu fan was not detected (not corsair h80 at that time, stock cooler) I had to plug it somewhere else... that was a year ago this month

I hope I did not forget anything, the reports, minidumps, etc and everything are attached in a .rar file

Make sure all Windows updates are installed.
I see you have an SSD installed. SSD drivers are a common cause of BSOD's, in particular Crucial M4's with outdated firmware. Make sure that the following is up to date:

Run a chkdsk on the system partition to check for bad sectors or system errors.

Thanks, I will update the firmware, bios is already up to date and the drivers as well. Check disk repairs the ntfs.sys BSOD but if I launch battlefield I get a random bsod ( usb controller, directx,...) and after 2 - 3 bsod the ntfs.sys problem returns

edit : while installing samsung ssd magician software , BSOD "SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXEPTION" stop code 0x0000003b
edit : samsung software is installed and is telling me FW is already up to date
And I forgot to mention my optical drive, asus blu ray reader, and when I put a dvd it's really doing a weird noise

On top of my previous posts suggestions, run the following:
Run an sfc/scannow command in an elevated command prompt. If errors are found, run it twice more with each scan followed by a reboot.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Run disk cleanup to find and remove unnecessary files on your hard drive to free up space and make your computer run faster.

kevgen do you use a trainer while playing ,if so then permanently delete all trainers .
Then run a full scan of spybot,SUPERAntiSpyware, malwarebytes and eset online scanner.
if they ask for a restart please do so.Don't run them together !
Most probably your problem will be solved.
