    [Win10 x64] Random BSOD over a long time now

    Hi thanks for being here to help :)

    Win 10 64 bit retail version
    installed on new computer, no previous installs.
    Just over 1 year old

    CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970
    16gb ddr4 ram
    MB Fatal1ty Z170 Gaming K4
    PSU cooler master G750M
    NO OVERCLOCK on anything
    Desktop made up by a shop not a stock/brand machine

    Crashes have only happened during gaming, and can be several weeks as long as 2 months between crashes or it can crash several times in a day.
    I ran memtest for 15 hours with no fails a few weeks ago after a few crashes.
    I updated bios this week as there were about 7 updates available.
    1 crash today since the bios update.
    This issue has been off and on for almost the entire life of the comp, and i really would like to get help to fix it. I am not very comp savy so guides will be needed in idiot proof lingo :)
    In the past i found re seating the ram seemed to cure the crashes for a reasonably amount of time, the last few crashes this month and one in Feb, did not stop after re seating the ram, they did stop for 5 days after bios update though.
    I have included the last 5 mini dmp files in a zip aswell just incase needed.
    I would be eternal grateful and very very happy if you can aid me in not having this BSOD hanging over my head every gaming moment.
    Many thanks for your time, mike.

    Re: Random BSOD over a long time now

    Hi Mikedabike.


    Did you install any special software for onedrive from Microsoft?

    You can try to:
    1. remove gigabyte ocguru completely (wait some hours/days and see if that worked)
    2. run a full offline antivirus scan (for example, using Kaspersky rescue disk)
    3. remove peerblock completely (wait some hours/days and see if that worked)
    4. install the new audio drivers by realtek for windows x64 - R2.81 - 2017/1/13 (click). (wait some hours/days and see if that worked)

    Re: Random BSOD over a long time now

    Thanks for your prompt reply. As far as i know i have not installed any special software for one drive, unless it came in updates. I have just installed the new audio drivers as that seems like a good thing to do anyway, although the date of the release is well after many previous Bsod. Is there any more info you could share as to why removing your suggested programs may help? Gigabyte ocguru is the only one that has been on the computer the entire period of time spanning the bsod and does run in background on boot up, peerblock was a more recent addition, and does not run unless started by myself during bittorent sessions, never crashed at those times, it is only during gaming.
    I will try the gigabyte removal first as time span would suggest that over peerblock.

    Re: Random BSOD over a long time now

    To speed up any process of help, if i do crash again do you need a fresh copy of syns and perf? Would a fresh copy show anything useful with the first program removed?

    The CPU does not appear overclocked (that i7 is a 4.0GHz part), and yet your CPU threw a L0 cache error. Not good.

    This one is interesting - it would appear to be a video subsystem error, but so far it's the only one pointing to anything in the display stack at all. Although, assuming that's on PCIE lanes to the CPU, it could still be a failure of the CPU...

    Again, the CPU is attempting to enter Idle and fails, similar to the first bugcheck in this list. That's.... bad.


    Given everything here, I would remove any overclocking utilities or drivers you have installed (as these are the only software packages I've ever seen cause this), and make certain your system firmware (BIOS/UEFI) and drivers are up to date (especially for your graphics card). If possible, set your BIOS/UEFI to some sort of "safe default" option, and then try to make it happen again. If the problem continues, I would conclude that one of the cores on your CPU is causing errors - you could try undervolting and downclocking, or try to get it analyzed and repaired by the motherboard OEM or Intel support at that point.

    Thanks for taking the time to look for me, i have removed the gigabyte ocguru program as recommended earlier, that's the only overclocking prog that came already loaded on the comp since new. I have never tried overclocking anything on this comp. Bios is fully updated. Graphics driver was up to date at time of posting and is updated often as new releases are available within a week or 2 of their release.
    Is it possible for software to be causing this issue then? I have been bsod free since removing the 2 programs listed in first response, but then i have gone several months free in the past. If cpu failure was the cause, would i not expect it to be more often? and get more frequent as time went by?? I am a user not a tech, i really have no idea, nor really want to if honest, but living along the Thai/Burmese border, tech are in a short supply here. Much appreciate your help.

    Re: Random BSOD over a long time now

    It's possible if it's an OC utility, as I and others have seen that sort of behavior in the past. However, you'll have to be vigilant and pay attention to see if the errors return within the next 4-6 weeks.

    I saw the new dumps but I can't "extract" anything relevant from them.
    I hope we'll see experts here.

    By the way, I saw "axtudrv.sys" (sysnative driver reference table says "Most likely part of the AsRock Extreme Tuner").
    I can't see that program in msinfo32, but I can see fatal1ty utility\f-stream tuning: maybe you can try to uninstall also that one.

    If that still won't help, try to remove AVG (you can always reinstall it later, is this correct?) and use ms defender only as antivirus.

    Re: [Win10 x64] Random BSOD over a long time now

    Did you try an offline antivirus scan (with Kaspersky rescue disk or another similar tool: for example, avg rescue cd also exists)?
    Have you seated your memory sticks in the red slots? If yes, try the black slots.
    Try to replace your path (Control Panel\System and Security\System, advanced system settings, environment variables, system variables, path) with this:
    c:\windows;C:\WINDOWS\system32;c:\windows\system32\wbem;c:\windows\system32\windowspowershell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Common
    I'm not sure you should have intel paths in your Env.Var. Path... Maybe you could try to install (or reinstall) Intel Management Engine driver ver:11.6.0.1126 from your motherboard manufacturer website (click).
    Try also to uninstall Malwarebytes and AVG, use/enable MS defender: if the BSODs disappear after these actions, try to reinstall AVG and see if BSODs start to reappear again.

    The new dumps show (I tried to show only relevant things...):
    Read More:

    The first suggests (to my imagination... I'm not a BSOD expert) that something bad happened with NetworkManager (i.e. something malicious in your connection)?
    The second suggests there could be problems with the cpu (GenuineIntel_PROCESSOR_CACHE).

    I'm not sure if I ever tried to stress test the CPU, but I read something about Prime95 (on mersenne.org)
    And I have now found there's an Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool (current version 4.0.0.29), but it seems your CPU isn't supported by it.

    Re: [Win10 x64] Random BSOD over a long time now

    Ok thanks again, I have just completed an offline scan with Kaspersky rescue disk, 2 hrs or there abouts with all devices and boxes ticked. Results clean. Memory i have reseated and previously i did swap to black, and then again back to orange, crashes happened in both cases. This has been going on for about 1 year now. After the crashes i posted yesterday i removed AVG as you requested. Since then no crashes but this seems to be the way throughout this problem. It crashes a few times and then just stops and runs fine for a few days a week etc. then crashes a few times again... repeat. I am not very comp savy, replacing path seems scary to me as i do not really know what i am doing, the path you show is a little different to what i think is the location so do not want to blindly stab in the dark with my limited abilities. I ran the Intel Management Engine driver ver:11.6.0.1126 in repair mode.
    MS defender is now running, and not really sure why you suggest removing malwarebytes? i Quite like it??

    As you claim to not be a BSOD expert, is it poss to drag someone into this who is? I mean no disrespect here at all and i totally appreciate your help to date, just wondering if someone with their skill set in the bsod area may be of help here?

    I will see if AVG and intel manager do anything, and await the next crash with sinking heart.

    Thanks for your help to date
    Mike.

    This is your original path:
    Read More:
    How you can see, I just removed the doublets.
    The last entry is in another variable (user path, instead of system path).

    Malwarebytes (like many other antiviruses) can sometimes cause bsods (especially if it's the paid version), that's why I'd try to see how things go without it (and without AVG)... Even though nothing relevant about it seems to appear in your minidumps.

    For the BSOD experts: I can not drag them here. ;-)
    I'll try to leave a message for them, by the way.

    Post scriptum:
    I've re-read cluberti's post and he already said your CPU could be the problem.
    Maybe you should really do some CPU tests.

    Yes, i am not ignoring that info, just hoping it is still a software issue over an expense of a new CPU 1 year old, that route is getting closer, with more reports pinning it down to that can only help right? As i mentiond, 3 shops with tech support in this town did not even know what a .dmp was, so handing it into a shop for trouble shooting is my last resort. I would have gone that road already if i had a trustworthy source.

    I am happy with the copy paste path route you supplied now, that you mentioned in previouse posts and i will replace that if crashes again since AVG is uninstalled since last crash, trying one thing at a time to check it all.
    One thought, could dirty power be a cause of this particular problem? My power source is mostly ok but it does have occasional flickering lights or brown outs?? Been trying to source a decent sized UPS but got to order in and they are very expensive here as there is a 300% import tax on luxury goods. Trying to source a local made one that is worth the cash.
    Again thanks for your time, it truely is appreciated.
    Mike

    There are no dump files in the SysnativeFileCollectionApp.zip attachment. Do you have dump files in c:\windows\minidump?

    From the 3 dumps in the BSOD.rar attachment (The 041017-4312-01.rar attachment is corrupted):

    Bugchecks:
    - 0xa - driver attempted to improperly access memory. The NT kernel listed as probable cause. This is simply a default. Actual cause unknown.
    - 0x124 - Machine Check Exception - unknown hardware failure
    - 0xf7 - driver has overrun a stack-based buffer

    I have little doubt that we're dealing with unknown hardware failure, especially in light of the 0x124 BSOD.

    0x124 BSODs are notoriously difficult to solve because the cause is simply "unknown hardware failure".

    Unfortunately, the dumps are incapable of telling us which piece of hardware has failed. Dumps are only good for figuring out software problems.

    All I can really do here is to give you some hardware diagnostic programs to run.


    The problem may also be with other hardware parts such as the motherboard or PSU for which there are no software tests.

    Re: [Win10 x64] Random BSOD over a long time now

    Many thanks for your input, much obliged. Will get to testing stuff, i did do a 15 hour pass with memtest before with no faults. Prime 95 and furmark i already had downloaded, i am a little concerned abouty using prime 95 as my location is in tropics and summer so stress testing gets extra hot as air temps are 40 degrees up, what is considered a danger temp i should stop at? Whilst heavy gaming my cpu max temp i have seen recently was 76 degrees the one time i used Prime 95 i saw it go to 97 and shut it off at that point. Is it safe to let it run itself at those temps?? I have had no heat issues while heavy gaming for hours, but stressing is way above that.. advise please?

    SeaTools for DOS - Hard Drive (HDD) Diagnostics is there a way to bur this for usb use as i have no optical drive fitted?

    I do not have that folder in that location. I made my mini dump path to my desktop, would that be why i don't have any dump files in the SysnativeFileCollectionApp? If so do i need to make a folder in the location you asked about... c:\windows\minidump ?

    Yes, 97 C is way too high. You should be staying below 80 C ideally.
    T_junction Max is the maximum temperature the cores can reach before thermal throttling is activated. Thermal throttling happens when the processor exceeds the maximum temperature. The processor shuts itself off in order to prevent permanent damage. T_junction Max (T_j Max) is also referred to as TCC Activation Temperature in certain processor datasheets.
    T_j is 80 C, which is what I base my 80 C guideline on. T_j Max is 100 C from page 93 of Datasheet, Vol. 1 : 6th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor Family Datasheet, Vol. 1

    You can probably put it on a USB using Rufus:

    If you have the minidumps on your desktop, you could zip them up and upload them here.
