Windows 7: Crashes/Bluescreens for a year, no solution found

Crashes/Bluescreens for a year, no solution found

I'll try to keep this problem short, it dates back about a year when i had my XP OS which started randomly bluescreening while in gameplay, and only in gameplay. Made me think that its my gfx so i RMA:d my card(radeon 9800 pro), got back a xfx gtx260, didn't help, so i thought that maybe they sent me a broken card, so i rmad again, and got a xfx gtx275 which is currently in. Upgraded to Windows 7 at some point. Also got a new motherboard from my supplier for testing, doesn't work. (P5N-T Deluxe To -> P5QNT XYZ(Currently in))

Short description of how the crash happens:

Sound scrambles, loops slightly.
Fps drops to solid 0. Forcing me to reboot manually, bluescreen RARELY occurs in the actual crash, however after booting the computer i quite often get massive artifaction on BIOS screen.

After the crash the system is very sensitive even if no artifaction is present at boot, meaning the instant i start a 3d accelerated program the system halts.

Steps i've taken along the way:

Replaced Graphics Card for 2 Times.
Replaced motherboard.
Formated and fresh installed Win7 roughly 5 times(each after anything changed in the hardware)
Tested my memory(through the night, no errors), my processor(OK) and my HD(Ok)
Tried every alternate driver for every software/hardware i use.

Most common event viewer errors:

1101 Audit events have been dropped by the transport. 0
Source: EventLog

This happens fairly often right before the crash
------------
So i finally managed to get a bluescreen(for the minidump), however it didn't come from while playing a game, but on boot to windows. I received bunch of stuff in the eventmanager that i haven't seen before/in a while. Theres too many of them to post each here so i'll post the ones that seem most important. (Bear in mind i have a Finnish Win7 so ill try to keep them simple.)

Attaching minidump and dxdiag

Feel free to ask any information related to this matter, i really need the help.

Hi -

The bugcheck on the lone dump =

Update this Asus AI Suite ATK0110 driver - too old for Windows 7 -
Code:

I'd like additional system information, please.

Download the EXE file to your Documents folder --> windows7_vista_v2.57_jcgriff2_.exe

Download SysInernals AutoRuns to Documents --> http://live.sysinternals.com/autoruns.exe

Go to Documents folder, RIGHT-click on the windows7_vista_v2.57_jcgriff2_.exe file, select "Run as Administrator"

Ruoja,

the bsod was apparently caused by the nvidia graphics driver. But more importantly, it was a TDR fault. TDR stands for Timeout Detection and Recovery. Its a process through which windows tries to detect problematic hang situations and recover the desktop dynamically i.e. without reboot by resetting the GPU and re-initializing the video driver. That is why the system appears frozen and the user reboots to resolve.

As the FPS decreases, the likelihood of the GPU resetting increases. I noticed your FPS drops to zero.

But the TDR fault may be happening for other reasons e.g. overheating GPU, insufficient system cooling, overclocking, basically whatever you can think of. Many people have resolved their TDR problems simply by increasing fan speed.

There are some informative pages. pl. go through them.

You can also consider upgrading RAM to the max your system supports. Its cheap.

Thanks for the reply,

Updated the driver, zipped the infos

Also, i know the minidump is a loner, thats one of the problems since i can't get it to BSOD reliably and i just formated my comp when i installed the new motherboard.

Thanks for the reply, and sorry for double post.

Yeah i am aware if fps drops to 0 TDR might think the graphics card has malfunctioned and will try to reset, however this is not the case for no game can drop my normal fps under 40. I don't believe they'd send me 2 malfunctioning cards from RMA so thats why i'm here. Beyond my skill level.

I tried the cooling, used multiple monitoring software, even installed 2 new fans for the gtx260 but heat is not the problem, regardless of heat the crash will occur sooner or later.

Also nothing is OC:d everything is as default as it can be right now.

Hi -

Thanks for the files.

Update your Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet driver -
Code:
L1E62x64.sys Thu Jun 11 02:45:22 2009 (4A30A802) - Atheros Ethernet
Atheros Driver downloads --> Atheros Communications

I see manually configured page file with min/ max = 2047/ 3040

Boot into safemode, turn virtual memory = OFF. Re-boot into safemode again and delete page file. RIGHT-click on c:\pagefile.sys, hold down SHIFT key while clicking on 'delete'. This will bypass recycle bin. Then set page file to system managed, OS drive. Re-boot into normal Windows.

To help speed the BSOD process up, verify all 3rd party drivers.

Run --> DRIVER VERIFIER - Windows 7 & Vista

My apologies for not completing the bugcheck info in my prior post. Bill2 provided info on TDR. I agree with RAM upgrade. You have 2GB installed.

The bugcheck was in fact 0x117 = video TDR timeout

I checked WERCON out from your files and found four 0x116 "Live Kernel Events", one step below a 0x117 BSOD. The difference between the two is that when a 0x116 occurs, the video driver ultimately recovers; 0x117 it does not, hence the BSOD.

From WERCON, the 0x117 BSOD, the 0x116 Live Kernel Events and a sampling of the 105 Windows Update Failures -

Thanks for the reply,

I validated Windows, installed Atheros drivers and some new updates that came after validation.

Running Driver Verifier as we speak, however i did not remember to fix the page file, i hope thats not a problem(its not something thats identical to every fresh install anyway so i doubt it has anything to with the problem).

I find it funny i'm actually hoping for a bsod now ^^.

Thanks for all the effort so far.

Feel free to ask any information related to this matter, i really need the help.
Pretty straight forward. This crash was caused by your video driver. You need to remove all remnants of the current driver (like control panels, etc) before you install a fresh copy.

I believe there is an un-install tool at the Nvidia site.

Let us know if you need help

EDIT. THERE MIGHT BE TWO OTHER THINGS YOU HAVE NOT TRIED

First, it might be a heat issue (download cpu-z, and gpu-z both free) to keep an eye on the temps

Second-- you haven't mentioned your power supply unit. It may not have enough power on the video rail. Check to see how much your card needs, and how much the power supply can deliver on the video rail

Also noticed 2 gigs of ram you may be starving the video card out os shared ram which could make it crash. The problem might be easily cured for ram is inexpensive

Heat issue it is not, however i do have to force the fan on software like EVGA precision, and as said earlier i even tried 2 additional fans on the former gtx260 just to see what it would do, nothing changed on that part.

Power should not be an issue, just bought a new one because i thought it might be a power issue, i can't tell you the model exactly right now but i will check it if you think it might be an issue. However it was bought from my supplier which is also the father of my friend and i trust his judgement on what the sufficient power might be. (ie. it was handpicked for this comp setup)

Ram, you might be on to something, actually you really really might be on to something with that. I will call my supplier for how to best set up the ram in my comp.

Artifaction on bios screen is usually caused by malfunctioning ram is it not?
