Windows 7: Random BSODs

20 Sep 2012   #21

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Just had another BSOD browsing the web. Crash dumps attached.

I asked for some more help. It reporting the same thing in every occasion, which is not the real cause.

I personally see a single 0xC9 crash which was caused by Driver Verifier. However, part of me thinks it's a false positive. Regardless, it was caused by your Razer Deathadder drivers, which are very stale (dated Aug 2, 2007). You'll want to install updates for it as well as any updated firmware. I personally cannot begin to explain how many crashes and other instability woes people have had with Razer products. They code their drivers very poorly. If updating drivers and firmware doesn't fix things, your only choice is probably to uninstall the drivers and just rely on the basic mouse drivers Windows has available.

Again, however, this may be a false positive. While the driver itself did cause this crash, it's because of a check in Driver Verifier (Force Pending I/O Requests) that, unless specifically anticipated, will create false positives. Make sure to follow the instructions here to the letter. Again, provide us any new crashdumps from crashes that may occur after Driver Verifier is setup and the system is restarted.

Now that I scrutinized over this a bit more, this to me actually does not appear to be the typical fake IRP that Driver Verifier will occasionally press onto drivers when doing the Force Pending I/O Request check. Rather, this seems to be a legitimate PnP start device IRP, which ended up being pending but the DeathAdder driver mishandled it and DV caught it in the act. Note that the pending on the IRP has already been returned, which is good, but I guess it failed to complete it in a proper manner, which would be explained by the fact that the driver is pre-Windows 7. So with this in mind, this may very well be cause of his problems, moreso than I originally perceived, but it's still TBD at this point.

hello Faintuk, I will throw my 2 cents in. First, please completely fill in your system specs. You can simply go to your last post, in the bottom left click on my system specs, you should see edit system specs. Fill them out completely, please. If you want to know what we need, look at mine. We need a complete description of your hardware to help diagnose the problem.

If you are overclocking your CPU, ram ot GPU please stop. Go into bios and set everything to optimized defaults, save and exit. If you haven't already, go to your motherboards web site and update all of your drivers.

Also, to check your CPU and to see if your hardware is stable please run Prime95 hardware Stress test. Be sure to have a good CPU monitoring program like Core Temp or Real Temp open during the test and monitor your CPU temps. It will get real warm. If it gets too hot, stop the test. Let us know how that comes out.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Reinstalled Windows and updated it from a clean boot state. The updates have all been successful and a BSOD didn't occur with the installation of SP1 as it did at the last attempt. I'm using the default Microsoft driver for the mouse (though it is still recognised as a Deathadder). The only GPU driver installed is the latest available one. I'll post again if a crash occurs and also update my system specs.

Thanks for your help.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Things were looking good (something like 8 hours without a crash), however the PC restarted this morning with no information other than a critical Kernel-Power log in Event Viewer. Event viewer also indicates errors regarding a 0xC000000D error with security essentials. The reboot took place when browsing the web.

I've re-enabled verifier to see if anything shows up, but I've installed very few drivers at this stage. Provided I can get the PC to BSOD I'll upload the dumps and in the meantime I'll run Prime95 to see if it turns up anything. Should verifier be run alongside Prime95, or is that problematic?

Interesting. What was the most recent drivers/software you installed on the new Windows?

For Prime95, you'll want to start with a several-hour (overnight) test with Blend settings, then follow up with the same lengthy test but on Large FFT settings, regardless if the first one passes or fails. This can help us discern if it's either the CPU or some other component.

Verifier should not pose an issue with Prime95 unless Prime95 has some driver that does something unscrupulous, and I have no knowledge of it ever doing such (unless something on hardware corrupts it during its testing). Verifier will help ascertain problems faster.

I installed the AMD 12.8 Display Driver (Along with Catalyst Control, the Audio Driver etc.), the drivers for the Asus Xonar DG soundcard and the driver for my USB wireless adapter. Verifier lists 12 non-Microsoft drivers.

I had another crash in the last hour. Same thing happened as the last one, reboot with no BSOD. Prior to reinstalling windows this would sometimes occur, but I would usually see a BSOD.

I will run Prime95 tonight and post the results tomorrow. In the meantime, is there some software I can use to collect all my system specs so that I can post them here?

If you had a crash with no BSOD, either the BSOD appeared too quickly (as in it failed to dump a crashdump file and just restarted immediately), or your system restarted from reasons besides a BSOD, which could only mean power supply failure, CPU overheating or some kind of short circuit.

We can make sure to determine if this was a BSOD or not by turning off automatic restart on BSOD. To do so, type "advanced system settings" in Start Menu, then go to Startup & Recovery settings, then uncheck the automatic restart option. Save and restart the PC. Now if the PC does BSOD, regardless if it fails to produce a crashdump or not, it will stay on the blue screen. If your system still reboots, and you can confirm it saved your changes, then you have one of the aforementioned hardware failures.
