Debugging :: Windows 8 - Random Variations Of BSOD While Booting
Aug 25, 2014
I've recently build my own computer with Windows 8, which turned out great at first. But after a day or two i've been experiencing seemingly random BSOD messages, and what triggers them. I've tried reinstalling Windows 8 and updating all drivers and installing all Windows updates, but after a short while the BSODs appear again.
I mainly get the BSOD when booting and they continue until i've tried a number of random troubleshooting options. Most of these options fail (including activating restore points) and the computer reboots with a new BSOD, and the next time into troubleshooting. The last couple of times it seems like Windows 8 will boot if i choose activate troubleshooting as a startup alternative.
At small periods of times i've also had troubles with computer going into a loop where it is turning on for a couple of seconds, then turning off, i did not get boot screen during this. I'm thinking this might be caused by some loose wiring which have been tightened, since i'm not having this trouble right now, but i thought i mention it anyway.
I've attached the BSOD data as instructed, with both tools. This includes only the files after my last install of Windows 8. My first install also experienced the 0x0000003b bug check code, but i don't have any more data than that.
Recently I've experienced random BSOD's in Windows 8. Although my computer know-how is limited at best, I knew it was best to upgraded my pc in steps. The first week I installed a SSD (with a fresh install of Windows 8 on it) and ran without any problems. A week later I installed 16 gigs of (new) ram (with the SSD) and everything ran fine.
The problems started two weeks later. I haven't made any changes to my pc or driver upgrades since then. If I idle in windows everything works fine. The same is true when running Office or browsing the internet. BSOD's occur when:
- Playing games (modern or old), either after 5 minutes or after 3 hours (seems very random but frequent);
- When wathing a HD youtube movie (BSOD's when doing this seem very rare though);
Recently on my gaming PC is have been having a completely random 0x0000001e, I really can't understand where it has came from, or what the root cause could be. It is a fairly new install at no more than a month old. I have not added any new internal hardware or anything like that, so what could be the cause for this random error? I have attached my logs to the main thread.
Ever since I purchased this PC with Windows 8 installed (haven't updated to 8.1) I've been getting multiple BSODs at random times, and the error messages seem to be different. I am attaching the file generated by SF diagnostic tool. I am not used to troubleshooting PCs.
My PC config is : 1. Intel Pentium Pentium CPU G630 @ 2.70GHz Socket 1155 LGA (0x1) 2. 4GB DDR3 RAM 3. 2TB Seagate HDD
I am facing a strange issues of BSOD since last 10 days. 1st I was on Windows 7 SP1 since more than 3 months and earlier on Windows 8. Suddenly my Windows 7 got corrupted after automatic indexing process by windows, in which process showed some index files corrupted and deleted. After then windows cant start, stuck into bootloop.
I formatted Windows several times but after a few hours the same condition. Then I decided to backup my HDD and Zero Level format of HDD. I did that, which took almost 6 Hrs. After then I decided to go again on Widows 8. hence, formatted and installed Windows 8.1 Update 1.
Now, again after a few minutes or hours BSOD happen again and again with random Two errors :
1. irql_not_less_or_equal (storports.sys) or 2. kernel-data-inpage-error
I am attaching herewith my CPU details alongwith logs by "dm log collector".
New Machine turn on after being disconnected from the power plug back in a few minutes later , turn on , BSOD ,, restarts then starts fine and runs no issues , shut down fine restart fine , take away from a power source wait a few mins plug back in turn on BSOD lol
I have been getting many different BSOD crashes. I went ahead and reinstalled Windows 8 to see if it would alleviate the issue with no avail. I installed the fresh drivers from the manufactures page. I have been getting these crashes much more frequently.
The most recent was a IRQL_not_less_than_or_equal_to, but over time there have been SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTIONS, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED and a few others.
This is a Toshiba laptop with 32 GB of memory, a toshiba 256GB SSD and two crucial m500 960 GB SSD. I have updated the Crucials to version M05 of the firmware (latest) some time ago and the crashes are continuing.
Crashed appear to happen randomly, I can be just trying away and I get a BSOD or the machine can be idling overnight and when I get up it has restarted. When it crashed it does not always restart (sometimes hangs at 100%).
Have downloaded the Windows Debugger but from my point of view it has been less than useful.
The Last couple weeks after I finshed reinstalling a fresh copy of windows 8.1 after my computer has been shut down for a couple of hours when I turn on I receive most of the time random BSOD ranging from bad memory management, page file in no fault, and so forth. But when I restart after the bsod the computer runs fine. Once in a blue moon it takes maybe 2 restarts to finally boot it correctly. I have rain Driver verifer and I uninstalled ai suite 2 when their drivers kept crashing it.
I had also ran windows mem diag during a cold boot period and it showed no errors. I have also tried returning to stock clocks and still running in to the same issue after a bit of time.
I am currently running:
Windows 8.1pro i7 3770k over clock to 4.6 on an Asus Sabertooth z77 G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) X2 OCZ vertex 4 128 ssd 1tb WD black hd 2tb Seagate barracuda hd Crossfiring 2 Sapphire Toxic r280x PSU is a corsair AX 1200i
Attach below is the zip from the SFdiagnostics tool program from grab all.
I'm having this BSOD since months ago and I can't find a good solution. Sometimes I can use my computer for over a month with no issues playing everyday for hours.. browsing the web etc. But sometimes like today I get 2 BSOD's on the same day playing for example Final Fantasy XIV ARR.
I tried many things before like Memtest, Cpu test, etc and I can't understand if my Hardware is the problem or some driver. I also have an after market Cpu Cooler so my temps are fine and my case has really good ventilation.
I uploaded this dumps a few days ago after I used Driver Veryfier. I got a C4 BC Code error on those Minidumps and the problem was nroskrnl.exe. Only with Driver Veryfier I'm able to reproduce this BSOD.. is always random when I'm just using my computer.
I uploaded those dumps here [URL] .....
I uploaded my latest dumps on this post using the SF Diagnostics Tool..
Even since I build this new computer last year in September I am plagued by irregular bluescreens,but was able to solve them, as I though, by replacing the RAM after memtest86 deemed 2 sticks faulty (I bought the RAM 2nd-hand, how stupid of me)
So here I was with brand new RAM, happily computing away but still getting some blue screens from time to time, so I re-installed Windows in February to bail out faulty drivers or something and it seems to be fine again, but no, the BSOD kept coming.
So I replaced the PSU since I thought it might be load-related issue and my 500W PSU was getting old anyway, maybe it wasn't able to deliver the load reliable anymore. Now I have a shiny new 650W RS650GM from CoolerMaster, but to no avail.
I've attached the SF diagnostics tool file collection to this post. The last days, I really got many bluescreens. During gaming, during browsing or just when the PC was idle and should have switched to standby after a while instead of restarting from a BSOD...
The latest BSOD had a bugcheck of 0x124_GenuineIntel_PROCESSOR_CACHE, I googled that and *suspect* my CPU might be the cause of all this. But before I start a RMA with Intel I want to be sure. Maybe I can try to elevate/reduce the issue by underclocking or something?
Everything in my PC runs on stock clocks, no overclocking at all. Running the RAM on JEDEC 1333 MHz @ 1.5V or XMP 1866 MHz @ 1.65V does not change the BSOD rate.
Recently i got my hands on a titanfall beta-key and to play i had to have a 64bit system. I asked my friend to support with the upgrade and everything went fine until my pc started randomly crashing with Memory_management as the most common message. i've had a few others too but mainly this one. I don't understand that my pc keeps crashing because before with my win7 32bit there was never no issue. I tried doing this debug tool thing but it says access denied and the cmd window that opens also says WIN32 so did something go wrong with the installation of win 8 or what?
I recently did a clean reinstall of windows because I was having random BSOD/freeze issues. Everything has been fine for the last two weeks or so but I just got another BSOD playing League, and then about half an hour later I had a spike of CPU usage that froze my comp for about 30 seconds.
I have recently installed fresh Windows 8 on my laptop - HP 6735b. Installation went smooth, it has installed all the drievers on his own, I just installed few more applications and within few days, problems appeared. I'm getting BSOD on startup, but sometimes it starts normaly and after few minutes/hours - BSOD appears.
I've used the pc for a few days with a usb pen with Ubuntu Live while i was backing up the files from the disk and it was ok. No crashes and no problems. Then i installed Windows 8 and i'm getting +- 2 BSOD's a day. I've already tried to find out the source, but the logs i find in the minudups are not clear to me. I'm only uploading 2 dmp files because i've done a system restore and all previous dmp were erased. I'll upload more when it happens again.
I bought this PC on january, and since then I got random BSOD at various moments, I already tryed to restore the computer, I already did this New MSI GT70 random BSOD's and i still got a lot of BSOD, my drivers are updated.
I have faced BSOD it says KERNEL_APC_during bla bla while booting into windows. i don't know what's the cause of this because it hapenned randomly (I mean sometimes I can go boot to desktop, and sometimes I faced the BSOD). I assume that maybe my realtekk driver is the problem .
I have a MSI GT70 20D-039US DRAGON EDITION 2 and get random crashs since the first day I have it.
I upgraded my laptop to Windows 8.1 after the first crash and it didn't work and then i have updated all my drivers to latest from MSI Global GT70 Dragon Edition 2 and also killer network website(include firmware but BIOS I think).
I did some research about the issue some how find out killer network might be the center of the problem but when I shut it down (using msconfig to disable the killer service V2 and killer network manager ) as other did the problem are getting a lot worse compare to before(BSOD's every half an hour compare to maybe once a day) .
