Windows 7: Random BSOD, error 0x101

23 Dec 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Random BSOD, error 0x101


Came here a few months ago with a Windows problem and received great help. So here I am again with another issue.

First thing first, yesterday I reinstalled Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware. Computer ran great all day. I started having BSOD's this morning. About 5 crashes in 10 hours. I used WhoCrashed trying to see what it was but it says it appeared to be typical software driver bug and not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. So there's that. I downloaded Driver Reviver as pointed on a thread in here and ran it. Downloaded and updated the bad drivers. Ran Windows Update and installed them correctly. Updated GPU driver along with mouse and monitor, because I was there. Rebooted a couple of times while doing so.

Then I got another Blue Screen. So I Googled 0x101 troubleshootings. I tried downloading the Windows Debugging Tools from Microsoft but for some reason it fails the installation everytime.

I then ran the SFC /SCANNOW in Elevated Command Prompt which resulted in perfect shape. So I downloaded and ran the SF Diag Tools and ran it. Checked components temperatures with CPUID and everything is fine.

I would like some Guru help with the dump files in order to see what is happening.

I attached the zip file from the SF Diag Tool. Computer specs are as follow:
  • Windows 7 Ultimate 64bits SP1
  • Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
  • AMD FX-8350
  • 16gb of RAM
  • nVidia GeForce GTX 660
  • 1TB Caviar Black
  • 2TB Caviar Black
I believe everything is there. Thanks for your help, I am off for the night and will read your replies in the morning.

Looks OK to me. Clean up those dodgy Adobe activation lines in your HOSTS file, and I'll have a look at your dmp files in the next hour or so and make some suggestions.

May I ask for the correct way to remove them? I simply deleted the lines from the Hosts for now and I will continue with you in the morning. Thank you so far Golden.

Hi Maesen.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of your PSU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Do some hardware tests like:

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.
If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Let us see a screenshot of furmark window before you close it.

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

There is very frequent BIOS update for this board. There must be some good reason for it. Update the BIOS to Version 2104 dated 2013.12.11 from ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0

And, update Asmedia SATA Controller Driver V1.3.4.0 from the same page.

Finally, Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
Let us know the results.

Wow nicely written post. I'll try all pf that during the day and run a memtest overnight if the problem still occurs. I'll update the post by tomorrow.

Thank you both.

PS: I see in the quote that it says mbam (Malwarebytes) seems to cause the BSOD. Is it possible or do I misinterprete the log?

That is not the reason behind the BSOD, but the victim.

It might indicate to any malware. So for a safety reason, scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.
