Windows 7: Constant 0xA bsod, seemingly random

27 Jul 2012   #1
Tom Bladen

Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1
Constant 0xA bsod, seemingly random

The computer is a custom build, about a year old.
  • i5 2500 processor
  • asus p8p67 motherboard
  • 8gb kingston (I think) ram
  • nvidia geforce 550ti
The crashes happen at random times, with not much in common between pc usage, like one time I was watching a film, another I was compiling some qt examples.

Anyways, I'll run memtest on each of the ram sticks later, and if they all pass, probably some prime95 action to see if it's caused by hardware issues.

Any information, insight or advice would be great

BSOD at seemingly random times, memory dump blaming random drivers
I've been plagued by odd problems since making this custom build about a month ago, but the latest is the increasing frequency of BSODs. They never occur at load (gaming with high end specs), but often occur at shutdown (forcing a restart before I can then actually shut down). I normally boot into...

Hey, So I bought my Lenovo Ideapad Y580 back in December 2012. It was fine for the first month but around mid January I started to get these random BSODs, they would happen when I played Civilization V, and also on start-up right before the Windows loading screen would appear. I initially...
