BSOD With a less than 1 month old machine running Win 7

    Question

  • Hello, I just had a tech guy I knew from my brotehr build me an i7 system. It just turned a month old today. After a week or less of having it, i started getting BSOD's Specially during high performance gaming (Bad Company 2 and RIFT). Normally screen freezes, i get teh blue screen and it restarts. Havent been able to get the tech guy to shwo up and check the computer. So I've decided to take matters on my own hands and see if any one cna help me and figure out whats causing them.


    Been getting the BSOD almost every day lately.

    Specs:
    CPU: Core i7 950 @ 3.07 GHZ.
    Mainboard: MSI X58 Pro-E
    GPU: Nvidia 460 GTX 1gb DDR5
    RAM: 4 GB DDR3-1333 Kingston SDRAM @ 609 mhz x2 (total of 8gb of ram)
    PowerSource: Cooler Master  RS-600-PCAR (Extreme Power Plus 600W)

    Heres one of the error reports after windows starts back up again...

  • Ok, so I ended up putting  the frontal fan, temperature managed a little better, but the computer would still lock up on Rift and Bad Company 2. After that I decided to format my computer and do a clean install on windiows 7. Havent let any of the updates install, since i heard some where one of em had been a known issue locking up systems. So looks like it's safe to say The issue was fixed with the clean install. Been playing Bad Company 2 for a couple of days, from 1 hour to like 4 hour sessions, even more, and no lock ups, same with Rift.

     

     

    Thanks to every one who gave me advice and helped me with this issue. If something happens again ill be sure to drop by and let you guys know.

  • Hi,

    The Event ID41 listed first is a special case - check this KB article.

    Windows Kernel event ID 41 error in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2: “The system

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504

    ===============================

    The minidumps were 1E (8) and 124 (1 and the last).

    1. 124 CAUSE hardware which could be anything including some software causes - see below.

    2. 1E CAUSE hardware which could be anything including some software causes - see below.

    See this thread for information on using BlueScreenView, MyEventViewer, and other methods to
    troubleshoot BlueScreens - top 3 answers (+1 other).

    http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7repair/thread/c675b7b8-795f-474d-a1c4-6b77b3fcd990

    ============================================================

    BCCode: 1E   0x0000001E 

    Remove ALL power and reseat all the cards, memory, and cables (both ends when
    possible)
    - actually remove and replace - do not just snug. Those are for a PC and about all
    that can be done for a laptop is reseat the memory and clear the vents. Make sure the BIOS,
    low level chipset drivers, and major device drivers are all up to date by check manually at the
    makers' sites.

    Many Bluescreens are caused by BIOS, low level chipset drivers, and other major device drivers
    which are not the most current even though the computer is new. Check manually for updates
    using the methods for updates as indicated in the troubleshooter linked above and/or the methods
    below (which are the same).


    BCCode: 1E   0x0000001E

    Cause

    This is a very common bug check. To interpret it, you must identify which exception was generated.

    Common exception codes include:

    • 0x80000002: STATUS_DATATYPE_MISALIGNMENT

      An unaligned data reference was encountered.

    • 0x80000003: STATUS_BREAKPOINT

      A breakpoint or ASSERT was encountered when no kernel debugger was attached to the system.

    • 0xC0000005: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION

      A memory access violation occurred. (Parameter 4 of the bug check is the address that the driver attempted to access.)

    For a complete list of exception codes, see the ntstatus.h file located in theinc directory of the Windows Driver Kit.

    Resolution

    If you are not equipped to debug this problem, you should use some basic troubleshooting techniques. If a driver is identified in the bug check message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters. Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.

    If you plan to debug this problem, you may find it difficult to obtain a stack trace. Parameter 2 (the exception address) should pinpoint the driver or function that caused this problem.

    If exception code 0x80000003 occurs, this indicates that a hard-coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but the system was started with the/NODEBUG switch. This problem should rarely occur. If it occurs repeatedly, make sure a kernel debugger is connected and the system is started with the/DEBUG switch.

    If exception code 0x80000002 occurs, the trap frame will supply additional information.

    If the specific cause of the exception is unknown, the following should be considered:

    Hardware incompatibility. First, make sure that any new hardware installed is listed in the Microsoft Windows Marketplace Tested Products List.

    Faulty device driver or system service. In addition, a faulty device driver or system service might be responsible for this error. Hardware issues, such as BIOS incompatibilities, memory conflicts, and IRQ conflicts can also generate this error.

    If a driver is listed by name within the bug check message, disable or remove that driver. Disable or remove any drivers or services that were recently added. If the error occurs during the startup sequence and the system partition is formatted with NTFS file system, you might be able to use Safe Mode to rename or delete the faulty driver. If the driver is used as part of the system startup process in Safe Mode, you need to start the computer by using the Recovery Console to access the file.

    If the problem is associated with Win32k.sys, the source of the error might be a third-party remote control program. If such software is installed, the service can be removed by starting the system using the Recovery Console and deleting the offending system service file.

    Check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help pinpoint the device or driver that is causing bug check 0x1E. Disabling memory caching of the BIOS might also resolve the error. You should also run hardware diagnostics, especially the memory scanner, supplied by the system manufacturer. For details on these procedures, see the owner's manual for your computer.

    The error that generates this message can occur after the first restart during Windows Setup, or after Setup is finished. A possible cause of the error is a system BIOS incompatibility. BIOS problems can be resolved by upgrading the system BIOS version.

    ======================================================================

    BCCode: 124   0x00000124

    This is usually heat related, defective hardware, memory or even processor though it is "possible"
    that it is driver related (rare). Remove ALL power and reseat all cards, memory and cables (on
    both ends) - actually remove and replace - do not just snug. Make sure the system has adequate
    ventilation - add a small fan blowing into intakes. Carefully inspect the motherboard and other
    cards for damage. Pay attention to the fatal hardware error implication.You may need a real
    computer shop (not leeks and peeks at a BestBuy or other BigBox stores) or the System maker's
    Support.

    There have been a few instances where Norton/Symantec and other antivirus/security programs
    have caused this error.

     
    BCCode: 124   0x00000124

    Here are some methods to possibly fix the blue screen issue. If you could give the Blue Screen
    info that would help. Such as the BCC and the other 4 entries on the lower left. And any other
    error information such as STOP codes and info such as IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and similar messages.

    As examples :

    BCCode: 116
    BCP1: 87BC9510
    BCP2: 8C013D80
    BCP3: 00000000
    BCP4: 00000002

    or in this format :

    Stop: 0x00000000 (oxoooooooo oxoooooooo oxooooooooo oxoooooooo)
    tcpip.sys - Address 0x00000000 base at 0x000000000 DateStamp 0x000000000

    Many BlueScreens are caused by old or corrupted drivers, especially video drivers however
    there are other causes.

    You can do these in Safe Mode if needed or from Command Prompt from Vista DVD or
    Recovery Options if your system has that installed by the maker.

  • Hi,

    References to Vista also apply to Windows 7.

    This is my generic how to for proper driver updates :

    This utility makes it easy to see which versions are loaded :

    DriverView - Free - utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
    description, version, product name, company that created the driver, and more.
    http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/driverview.html

    For Drivers check System Maker as fallbacks and Device Maker's which are the most current.
    Control Panel - Device Manager - Display Adapter - write down the make and complete model
    of your video adapter - double click - Driver's tab - write down the version info. Now click UPdate
    Driver (this may not do anything as MS is far behind certifying drivers) - then Right Click -
    Uninstall - REBOOT this will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat that for Network - Network Card (NIC), Wifi, Sound, Mouse and Keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and any other major device drivers you have.

    Now go to System Maker's site (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) (as rollback) and then Device
    Maker's site (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI as examples) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates at System Maker's site while there.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - Right Click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
    each installation.

    Always check in Device Manager - Drivers tab to be sure the version you are installing actually
    shows up. This is because some drivers rollback before the latest is installed (sound drivers
    particularly do this) so install a driver - reboot - check to be sure it is installed and repeat as
    needed.

    Repeat at Device Makers - BTW at Device Makers DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER - check
    manually by model.

    Manually look at manufacturer's sites for drivers - and Device Maker's sites.
    http://pcsupport.about.com/od/driverssupport/ht/driverdlmfgr.htm

    Installing and updating drivers in Windows 7 (updating drivers manually using the methods above is
    preferred to ensure the latest drivers from System maker and Device makers are found)
    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/43216-installing-updating-drivers-7-a.html

    If you update drivers manually then it is a good idea to disable Driver Installations in Windows
    Updates, this leaves Windows Updates ON however it will not install drivers which will usually
    be older and cause issues. If Updates suggests a new driver then HIDE it (Right Click on it)
    and then go look for new ones manually if you wish.

  • Well, updated the BIOS, and the Chipset drivers, opened the computer, unplugged all the cables and plugged em back in, took out the RAM and GPU. Turbo Boost was disabled from the start. Yet still getting crashes, havent had the BSOD, but computer freezes while playing Bad Company 2, and in the Event manager, it says it was a kernel-power.

  • Hi,

    Did you thorughly test the memory? Please review the methods in the troubleshooters
    posted above. Have you been doing any over-clocking? If so please revert all settings
    back to the default. Be sure to check for possible heat related causes.

    Hope this helps.

  • Havent tested the memory yet, as for overclocking, i havent done it. And for teh heat issue, the 4 cores during peak performance hover between 60-70 C, and the GPU hovers at arround 64-67 C.
    Thursday, March 10, 2011 3:33 AM
  • Hi,

    Heat issues include anything that is too sensitive to heat even if the heat level is not
    above the recommended levels. Try using a fan to blow into the intakes to try to
    rule out heat as a source of the issue. This is not 100% however it might help.

    Hope this helps.

    clean your CPU cooler, the 70°C are too much. If this doesn't fix it, return the CPU to Intel, they should check the CPU for an error. The Bugcheck says it is a fatal hardware error.

  • Hi,

    The i7 950 can run very hot, in fact the point at which it reduces functionality is set at
    100C. While the chassis temp is recommended to be 38C or lower the actual internal
    temp is expected to be up to 80C. So 60-70C is very good. One of the specs that
    determines if a i7 is 9xx level is its thermal abilities.

    Remember though temps are with-in specs that does not mean something is not too
    sensitive to that level. Could be a thermistor or any individual part or component.

    Check with the GPU maker for recommended temps though 64-67 would be within
    range for many.

    Hope this helps.

  • Could it be an issue caused by the PSU? Was reading at guru of 3d and tis came up in the gtx 460 review:

    "What would happen if your PSU can't cope with the load?:

    • bad 3D performance
    • crashing games
    • spontaneous reset or imminent shutdown of the PC
    • freezing during gameplay
    • PSU overload can cause it to break down"

      Also tested the memory with memtest 86+ and it came out clean after an 8 hour continuous run, 4 pases total.

     

    At this point im either going for a GPU or PSU issue, might be temp related also. Tho who knows, While playing RIFT temps dont go above 65 on either of the cpu or gpu, and a couple of the BSOD's (3)  happened while i was either on FB, or starting up WoW (which has never crashed my computer while in game and settings on Ultra).

     

    Also could a bad Windows instal be teh cause for all of this?

  • Hi,

    PSU which are not producing the correct power can cause some strange issues so it
    is possible.

    A bad Windows Install is also possible though not the likely cause of those issues.

    Start at the top of the troubleshooters I posted and work down in a methodical manner.
    That is usually more successful that a try this and that approach.

    Hope this helps.

    60°C for a GPU is ok. graphic cards are getting very hot.

    I can tell you it again. Contact Intel or the person where you bought the CPU.

  • NVIDIA and AMD video cards are OK up to about 90C with no problem when maxed out.

    I still like to see temps lower though.

     

    My GTX 260 is overclocked slightly and its cool running and well within the range for proper operation.

    Now I am aware that some cards have been a problem.

     

    If you are only getting a BSOD then I will suggest using the video card at defaults.

    Then I would look to other components. For example is your power supply adequate and how about other devices.

    One good move would be to reduce all settings back to their defaults, remove all over-

    what the max workable settings are.

The same thing is now happening while playing Rift, system just locks up, and i have to force a restart with the power button. So i went from BSOD's to System getting locked up.
    Monday, March 14, 2011 7:53 PM
  • I do not have Rift but I do have BC2. BC2 is very demanding and I have a GTX 260 which is loaded hard when I play it.

    My GTX 260 draws almost 200W all by itself. My 65W CPU is puny by comparison.

    When the power sags the video card will crash.

    Not unusual for programs that push the system harder to reveal problems that lighter
    programs do not.

    Would be a good idea to have a real computer shop look at the system (one that does
    in-house service and not leeks and peeks at a Best Buy or other Big Box Stores) or
    the System Maker's Support.

    Did you try adding an extra fan to reduce the influence of heat?

    The PSU as VF mentioned could well be involved.

    Monday, March 14, 2011 10:03 PM
  • Ok, so I ended up putting  the frontal fan, temperature managed a little better, but the computer would still lock up on Rift and Bad Company 2. After that I decided to format my computer and do a clean install on windiows 7. Havent let any of the updates install, since i heard some where one of em had been a known issue locking up systems. So looks like it's safe to say The issue was fixed with the clean install. Been playing Bad Company 2 for a couple of days, from 1 hour to like 4 hour sessions, even more, and no lock ups, same with Rift.

     

     

    Thanks to every one who gave me advice and helped me with this issue. If something happens again ill be sure to drop by and let you guys know.

So yea, looks like it's finally a hardware issue... Now just gotta figure which piece of hardware...
    Thursday, March 24, 2011 6:13 AM
  • I would start with a better PSU in the 900W range. Look for 60A or more on the 12V circuit for best results.

    then I would check the CPU temps to be sure its not baking and throttling the system down

    Then use GPU-Z and watch your video card temps

  • Go to my developer site, find Fibonacci in products which I give away for free. Run it, if your rig crashes, then the CPU is likely overheating.

    To fix that you need thermal grease and something to clean off your fingers.

     

    Intel CPU coolers are a tad tricky to regrease only because they attach it to the board. My AMD is simpler as it uses a socket clip.

     

    See my gaming site and read the white papers on video card overheating, it has lots of helpful advise that can apply to a CPU as well as a GPU.

  • HI,

    A faulty CPU would normally fail much more frequently than you are experiencing.

    However its very possible something with Heat is involved. Such as the compound
    between the CPU and heatsink. That would account for the BSOD during extreme
    stress. Heat issus do not always mean too much heat, it often means something
    is too sensitive to heat or there is too much heat in a localized area. Of course
    there could be other causes or aggravations of the issue.

    Another important note is that the computer BSOD normally rather than just locking
    up.

    Do not totally rule out video drivers as those complex and can always be involved,

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Possibly running some stress tests can help determine the root cause.

    1. Prime95 - Free - run the Stress test for 3+ hours

    2. PC WIZARD is also an utility designed to analyze and benchmark your computer system. It can
    analyze and benchmark many kinds of hardware, such as CPU performance, Cache performance,
    RAM performance, Hard Disk performance, CD/DVD-ROM performance, Removable/FLASH Media
    performance, Video performance, MP3 compression performance.

  • My Fibonacci program will definitely crash a bad overclock etc.

    I can easily make far more aggressive programs, brute force is a specialty.

     

    So given the CPU survived that I will now have to ask for the 12V current capacity of the PSU. My program only stresses the CPU which can draw over 125W with some of the modules in force.

     

    Now the reason I ask is that the GTX 460 is a gaming card and it can gobble up lots of power too.

     

    Go find Furmark and run that and see if your GPU is warming up.

     

    Post back here with results

  • Andre, can i ask you, what makes ya so sure that the CPU is the cause, was it the minidumps?
    I read this internal timer issue from the dump.

  • Ok so, after the fresh install, ive had 2 bluescreens while playing, one with Dragon Age 2, the otehr one with Rift. Also teh Logitech g15 game panel drivers were causing some issues when i ran verifier.exe. But after i removed em, i still got the second blue screen with rift...

     

    heres a link to the 2 new minidumps.

    Also, since apparently the lock up/bluescreen issues only happen during game,s my techguy doesnt want to really offer any tehc support for it, since he doesnt install games on computers

  • How many fans are there in your chassis?

    You may need to add more fans.

  • Frontal and Rear Fan, CPU Fan, 2 Fans on the GPU and it think the Power Supply unit fan. I dont think its temp, seeing as how yesterday with a benchmark software, while ahving the 4 cores atb 100% usage and all above 80 C, the computer didnt even flinch.

  • Hi,

    The Bug_Check was 1E CAUSE hardware - which does not alway mean it is hardware though it
    certainly can be.

    BugCheck 1E, {0, 0, 0, 0}
    Probably caused by : hardware ( nt!KiKernelCalloutExceptionHandler+e )
    MODULE_NAME: hardware

    See the troubleshooters I posted above for the 1E Bug_Check.

    Hope this helps.

    You CPU is too hot. It should be much lower.

    I suggest buying a better grade chassis with additional fans on the side and top.

  • I still find it weird tho, ran 3 different benchmarks, all stressed the computer far higher than any of the games that have been on during the BSOD's, and yet it didnt crash. Now with RIFT, the 4 cores hover arround 60 C, and yet it crashes, far lower than the benchmark temps...
