Windows 7: BSoDs randomly on various of games

23 Sep 2014   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

My SATA ports were at AHCI modes. Both my CD-player and HDD.
My RAM timings were automated in the BIOS when I checked them. Before and after optimization my timings were 11-11-11-28-33. DRAM frequency was 717.6 MHz before optimization and after the opt. it was 802.7 MHz.

So according to CPU-Z they're 1600 MHz rams, but I still have a feeling that they might have been 1866 MHz... I gotta ask someone to check the shopping ticket just to make sure.

Also, should I manually set the timings or should I just leave them to auto?

Another BSoD, this time it happened in middle of rebooting computer. Here's what happened exactly

Basically, I was watching a youtube video, and chatting with a friend on teamspeak
> Lost connection to Teamspeak, and I noticed that my wireless connection status was at "limited access"
> Tried to finish watching the youtube video, while it stopped too due no internet access.
> Plugged the WiFi-adapter out of the computer and plugged it back in, no fix, and the program didn't recognize the adapter anymore, yet the light turned on on the adapter.
> Pressed on the restart button at the arrow next to the Shut Down button
> Windows was shutting down, and I went to the kitchen, and when I came back the BSoD happened, blaming the USB driver again.

However I can also tell you it was a third party USB driver that caused it. My debugger will not pull up the actual driver that caused it, meaning it is a third party driver that is not in Microsoft's data base. This is what tells me that

I suspect it is most likely your USB Dongle or whatever you are using for WiFi given the way you are describing the event. As for your Ram settings, please download
CPU-Z CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting and post screenshots (Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums) of the Memory and SPD tabs. The SPD tabs are for each Dimm slot, which can be selected from a drop down in the upper left of the screen. I only need the ones for the Dimm slots that are populated with ram.

I will call my parents if they have the list of my parts somewhere safe, because I'm not 100% sure what ram exactly I bought, because I had some switching back and forth with them. Most likely this evening or tomorrow I'll be calling there...

EDIT: G.Skill 8GB (2 x 4GB) RipjawsX, DDR3 1866MHz, CL8, 1.5V

Called my parents and they confirmed the part.

set your voltage to 1.5V, Set your Dram frequency to 1866 Your timings are currently set to 11-11-28-39 It is usually the first 4 timings listed, change them to 8-9-9-34-33 The Command rate is usually slightly faster at 1T, but is more stable at 2T. You will notice no difference between them so I recommend setting it to 2T. Try that and see if it works OK. If you are up to it, I would run 8 passes of memtest86+ to make reasonably sure it is stable with those settings.
Please Run Memtest86+

information   Information
Please download from this site only in the middle of the page are the Download links, you can download the or the Auto USB Flash Drive

Extract the Zip file. If you chose the ISO image, burn it to a CD using Windows Disk Image Burner or any Image burner you may have. If you downloaded the Auto USB installer, extract it, insert your USB 2.0 Flash Drive and take note of the drive letter. Run the installer, select the Flash Drive Letter, check the format box and press next. It will install memtest86+ to a flash drive. You can use either V4.20 or V5.01. Boot from your selected media. If you use V5.01 it will tell you to press certain buttons at the start, please press no buttons. The test will begin on it's own and continue to run until you stop it. It needs to run for 8 complete passes or until you receive an error. If you receive an error, stop the test. Even 1 error is a fail. Each pass tests a different part of the ram and each of the 10 tests in each pass tests something different. It takes a minimum of 8 passes to completely test the ram, more passes are better. It is quite a long test and will take several hours depending on how much ram you have. Due to the time length it is best to run overnight. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask

My BIOS settings for RAM timings. I set the DRAM speed to 1866 as you told me to.

See how that works for you. If you have ram problems change the 34 to 24. It should be good though.

Another BSoD occured, with same steps before BSoD

The thing is, before BSoD, the screen cracks with greenish colours at some corners, and then the BSoD comes. Also when the game crashes, every screen Aero shows are solid white. Also the computer runs a bit slow for a while.

When booting the game after crash, the game (CS:GO in this case) has this intro, which is lagging a lot in the boot.

Inserted the log files, even tho I'm not sure if they're any use for you, as they repeat the same error all over again.
