Lots of BSOD's After Hardware Change RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I recently upgraded all my core components of my computer (mobo, CPU, ram, GPU) all the driver installs went fine, windows activated, etc.

    Only driver problem I had was with the AMD HDMI Audio, but that's fixed now.

    Now I'm getting regular BSOD's, most being SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION. I've tried running verifier for all non-Microsoft drivers, but windows freezes at the welcome screen. I also ran Memtest with no errors. I know there has to be some drivers somewhere messing everything up. I have a lot of minidumps collected now, I'll link a few, starting with the newest. Thanks.

  • Update the bios from your mobo provider.

    Just a suggestion,(Not saying its an answer)

  • Re-seat all your hardware> Also make sure the PSU your using has enough power watts wise and correct A rating you'll see a tag on the side that says somthing like 24 25a 32 a 20a Find out if you have correct A rating for all new hardware. PSU is most important part of your pc (May want to test it with a cheap PSU tester to they sell em on ebay for 5 bucks.)

    Make sure you didnt put to much thermal paste on your cpu a very thin layer should be used it is only to fill micrograin grooves on the chip to prevent heat pockets. To much boils and creates heat pockets to making bad thermal transfer causing random crash errors.

    Try starting windows in safe mode navigate to c:/ right click it>> click properties>> click tools>> Run check disk and put a check in box that says repair bad sectors. If this fails.

    Do a repair install with the windows os disk.

    If your still getting bsod's Try (http://www.resplendence.com/whocrashed) after you click anaylize it will tell you if the problem is hardware or driver related.

    If its driver related you can get the hard to find drives from http://www.drivermax.com/ Its simple to use and not hackedware. (Only aloud 2 drivers a day as free user though I went pro :)

    Hope this atleast gets you into a state that is feezable for repair.

  • I was thinking of trying a repair install... does it erase any of my data? I forget if it did the last time I had to do a repair install.

    I already triple checked all the hardware itself, and the memory has passed the extended memtest just recently.

    I'll have to check out the PSU, its an Antec one that came with my Sonata 3 case from 4 years ago. 500w, apparently it was one of the best PSUs out there at the time.

    Also didn't put any extra thermal paste on then what was included on the cooler itself.

    Isn't check disk not recommended for SSDs? I thought I read that awhile ago.

    Thanks for the continued help though! If anyone has the time to go through the minidumps, that would be super cool as well. I've already gotten a bunch of help so far though, which is great.

  • If the psu is 4 years old you may definately wanna check it.

    (Not saying its bad though but random power loss to seprate areas of the computer could produce random crash dumps)

    Solid state drives seem to be ok to checkdisk, but there is some contriversy, check disk I believe repairs boot sectors..But if there are bad sectors on an ssd that sector will be disabled through chkdisk also. You may wanna research the chck disk a bit more I dont see the harm in though disabled sectors can be recovered.

    If your fearing the chckdisk simply repair install meets the same need (A properly working startup and boot sector). There should be 3 options on your OS disk> Destructibve (deletes/formats everything managed by windows), Recovery (Repairs damaged configuration and replaces missing files/drives data should be safe), and Rebuild (Makes a backup and rebuilds entire os system. "The backup may be manual I dont remember" Data is stored in backup). I beleive those are the options anyhow haven't had to do any of that in a while now.

    Well I am just a college student in IT field, I don't work for microsoft or anything, just been using computers since 88' so like 24 years exp. Trying to be helpful :)

  • Hi,

    After checking the latest dump file, I found the error code 0x24 was received, you can refer to Bug Check 0x24: NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM (Windows Debuggers). The FAULTING_MODULE is NTFS.sys.

    You can try to run chkdsk C: /r /f to detect and fix NTFS issue.

    In addition, a similar thread for your reference: http://www.windowsbbs.com/windows-7/101663-bsod-ntfs-sys.html

    Hope this helps
