Windows 7: BSoD randomly during gameplay or web browsing or even Idle

08 Oct 2012   #1

BSoD randomly during gameplay or web browsing or even Idle

System Information:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Intel i7 2600
ASUS P8Z68-V LE motherboard
8GB GSkill ram
Nvidia GeForce GTS 450
Recently reformatted, about 2 weeks ago.(Also happens before this reformat on a different HDD)

I've just gotten this new setup for maybe half a year now, and ever since I built it, I've gotten a few times BSoD randomly before either during my gameplay or when I am just browsing websites. Just recently I've gotten it maybe 3rd time now this week and couldnt figure out what is causing it. I've also updated my BIOs just about 2 days ago, still today I got a BSoD randomly while I was just texting on my phone, leaving the computer Idle for 10 seconds top, all of a sudden BSoD right in front of me. I didnt know what to do anymore.....

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

BugCheck 50, {fffff900de272070, 1, fffff960000d6688, 2}

Could not read faulting driver name
Probably caused by : win32k.sys ( win32k!RGNOBJ::bOffset+c8 )

Followup: MachineOwner
Here win32k.sys cannot be the cause of a crash. It must be something else.
According to, STOP 0x00000050: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
Usual causes:
Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS.

As it is not specifying any cause, you do the following thing.

Test your RAM modules.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Check the hard disks for possible ntfs errors.
  1. If you are using a SSD, update the firmware.
  2. Reseat the sata and power.
  3. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  4. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Shift your antivirus to Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows.

► If still crashes, enable Driver Verifier.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.
