Windows 7: Random BSOD with Gigabyte Brix S (NUC type system)

Random BSOD with Gigabyte Brix S (NUC type system)

Hi guys,

I have a Gigabyte Brix S, a NUC type machine running an i5 5200U SOC, with 8GB DDR3L and a Samsung Evo 840 msata. I have had it about 3 days!

I have installed Windows 7 Home Edition 64 Bit, MS Office, Avast Anti Virus and other tools.

I was using the machine a few moments ago, writing an email as it happens, with a few Google Crome windows open and a MS Office Word Document open too, and the machine gave me a BSOD.

I have followed the instructions at the top of the forum and have attached my zip file for your perusal.

Any help you can give me will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Welcome to 7F.

The single dump in your logs is showing a 0x124 which indicates a hardware error. Unfortunately, as with the vast majority of 0x124s it doesn't indicate what the exact problem is. The only way to identify the issue is to run a series of hardware stress tests and diagnostics.

Thanks for the response.

I'll get onto running those tests a little later today.

Out of interest, I notice that the Samsung Evo 840's had issues that may or may not have been rectified with a firmware update.

I have now run this update, and will continue to monitor the situation, but in the mean time, could the BSOD have been caused by the SSD and it's original dodgy firmware?

Again, thanks in advance

It's a possibility I suppose although I can't say for certain. The SeaTools test probably isn't the best option for an SSD to be honest, a mistake on my part there. There are tools available on the Samsung website that will check the integrity of your SSD.
