Windows 7: Persistent BSOD, Varying Parameters Usually During Gaming Applications

Persistent BSOD, Varying Parameters Usually During Gaming Applications

Hi All,

I've gotten random BSOD for nearly a month now, and I've tried many of the usual suspects with no resolution. I come now to the collective seeking wisdom. Things I've tried thus far with no success (not necessarily in this order);

1. Memtest86. No errors
2. Chkdsk /F No errors
3. Western Digital disk check utility. No errors
3. Antivirus is clean
4. Flash BIOS
5. Replaced power supply
6. Ran Hot CPU Tester Pro for MB errors. No errors
7. GPU torture test (I forget the utility). No errors.
8. Windows reinstall
9. Updated GPU drivers

I'm officially stuck. Any help would be appreciated like you would not believe. I've uploaded the sf diag file. Thanks for your help!

Hello and welcome :) .

The dump uploaded is practically useless .

Unable to load image Unknown_Module_00000000`00000000, Win32 error 0n2

BugCheck 7F, {8, 80050031, 6f8, fffff80002e95e3f}
What we can tell is is it was a double fault (by looking at the 1st parameter which is 8
of the 0x7F bugcheck code), all it means is that an exception was being handled and while it was
a second exception occurred.

Kernel stack not resident.
Usually I would ask for the Kernel memory dump but I don't think it will help us in this case.
Please run Driver verifier in order to induce a bugcheck which will help us with future diagnosing.

A question, for how many passes did you allow memtest86 go through?

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

Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

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

Thanks YoYo155. I'm running driver verifier now and will post a new bugcheck after.

I ran memtest86 overnight and when I was at work the next day. I want to say it ran for something like 16 passes.

Thanks for the feedback :) .
Let Driver Verifier crash the machine a couple of times to get an idea of the source.
Also we recommend testing the RAM using the plus version MEMtest86+.

Testing the RAM:

Tip   Tip
  • Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial "If you have errors"
  • Test the RAM with Memtest86+ for at least 7-10 passes. It may take up to 22 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.
When done with the testing procedure take a picture and upload it here.

Results of Memtest86+, ver. 5.01, 22 passes

Running driver verifier now. Will post new logs after a few crashes. Never rooted for a BSOD to occur before :)

Thank for the update, I take it no errors were found :) ?

No errors, and after 24 hours of driver verify, no crashes. Not sure why my comp decided to stop acting up, but I suppose I'll take it :)

Should I mark this thread as solved, or keep it open in case the problem reoccurs in the near future?

Let Driver Verifier run for another day for the sake of extra checking :) .
After that period disable DV and leave the thread open for another, then if all is well mark as solved.
For any other issues, we are here :) .

Just to be sure that verifier is running,
Run an elevated command prompt and type in verifier /query.
Start Menu> CMD - right click and Run as administrator.
Type verifier /query hit Enter and post a screenshot of the window.

Okay, had a crash tonight while playing Counter Strike:Global Offensive with driver verifier running. Log is attached. Hopefully it will be more helpful than the last one was.

Thanks :) .
The dump was a driver writing to the special pool (which is set when enabling the option
when selecting Special pool in Driver verifier) which is used to find drivers that flow over
their allocated space and corrupting other's (drivers) space.

DV failed to pinpoint a 3rd party driver, here it blames win32k which interacts with
the graphics drivers.

Please roll back to a more stable release.
