Windows 7: BSOD: ntsokrnl.exe(+more) - happens randomly

14 Aug 2013   #31

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

temps are all fine, memtest+ ran 8 passes with no errors, furmark leveled out my gpu @ 72c. i'm running prime95 now(only ten minutes so far) but the temp is leveled out at 64c. i'll let it go longer

psu wattage is fine for my system. i'll try reinstalling windows today.

Dont allow the temps to go beyond 80 degrees. Stop Prime95 in that case.

alright, these are dump logs from the last month. I re installed windows a month ago and did clean driver installations as you said to do throughout this thread.

the longest I went without a crash was eight days.

what I've changed: I removed my storage HDD so it is just my SSD.

what I've tested: it is NOT a temp issue, virus issue. I've ran memtest 7 passes three times with no errors.

Random BSODs

Basically my computer has been giving me problems since I put it together a few months ago. I got the mobo/cpu right as they came out so I've been hoping that maybe some drivers or bios update would fix it but it hasn't so i'm posting here again.

These BSOD happen whenever. I could be playing a games, watching TV with just an empty desktop, browsing the internet. They don't seem to be tied to what I'm doing.

What I've done:

- memtest86+ overnight. 7 passes, all 0 error
- prime95, furmark. both run for over an hour with 0 problems
- temps are normal all the time
- re installed video drivers cleanly, updated bios, updated every driver I can think of

I uploaded my last three BSOD after updating my video drivers on 10/24/2013

Hi OhNoVix.

First of all, I am requesting the moderators to merge this thread with BSOD: ntsokrnl.exe(+more) - happens randomly, as you have not closed that thread .... and there should not be two running threads.

This time, the BSOD is pointing to Corsair USB Headset.

And the driver is old enough.

Search for updates in Corsair:

Also let us know if it is BSODing without the headset or not.

Some display related issues are there. If the BSODs continue, we will concentrate on that.

follow up for this:

memtest 86+ never found a single error, at all, ever. I did an absolutely thorough testing that included doing 1 stick of ram, in every slot, cycling it through. all in all it took over two weeks of testing overnight and never over 7+ passes for each one did I get an error

I removed 2 of my ram sticks and just put 8gb in dual channel(slot 1/3 for my mobo) and I haven't had a bsod in over 2 weeks now

I guess something about my two newer sticks was wrong.. I don't know. I don't really care. I'm not blue screening anymore o_o

Memtest was suggested on 3rd August. Better late than never that you performed it.

Let us know if you get any issue later.
