    BSOD WHEA Uncorrectable Error, pre and post Creators 1703 updates

    It appears that the 'File' failed to upload with my earlier post, so I have re-run the app and hope that the file is firmly 'attached' now. The other information concerning my PC is as the original post above.

    Just to add that both yesterday and today, BSODs happened two or three times DURING the data collection phase of this app, so hopefully the final and successful file will have captured those in some useful way.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Please continue in post in the same thread and do not open any additional threads. This leads to confusion and will not enable us to help you effectively. I've merged your new thread into your original one.

    Re: BSOD WHEA Uncorrectable Error, pre and post Creators 1703 updates

    Hello, and thank you for this very rapid response, but also the warning about the difficulty of debugging such generic crashes.
    To answer your questions in turn;
    1. No, no overclocking by me since setting up the system.
    2. I have checked again, and all BIOS settings are as 'optimised defaults'.
    3. Yes, I had seen that, but until very recently - these BSODs - I had thought the BIOS worked best left alone unless some serious problem had occurred. Are you suggesting that I should go directly to the most recent BIOS update and use the Asus utility to install that one, or must I follow some earlier BIOS updates, please?
    Again, thanks for your quick response, and your tolerance of one who is quite new to such BSODs - and to the forum.

    Re: BSOD WHEA Uncorrectable Error, pre and post Creators 1703 updates

    I would suggest updating the BIOS to the latest version if you feel comfortable with updating it, otherwise we can try some other troubleshooting steps first, since Stop 0x124's can be caused by drivers (especially chipset drivers) in some rare cases.

    Have you attempted to boot into Safe Mode and seeing if the system crashes there? It'll be a quick method to ascertain if the issue is definitely hardware-related.

    Re: BSOD WHEA Uncorrectable Error, pre and post Creators 1703 updates

    Hi RossDaleRon.

    Why malwarebytes?
    Did they help you to remove any malware?
    Could you provide the thread link?

    I found in your msinfo32 log some files starting with us0 (us0*.dll): I didn't find anything like that on my system, and very poor information on internet.
    Did you check those files with malwarebytes team?
    Could it be you used some driver updater program (intel and MS excluded)?

    Re: BSOD WHEA Uncorrectable Error, pre and post Creators 1703 updates

    Hello again!


    Apologies for this delayed response; I was called away unexpectedly, and have only just returned this late evening.


    1. Malwarebytes were helping initially as my own Malwarebytes software Premium Edition wasn't stable, the scan by Technical Support indicated that I needed the more recent 'beta' and then shortly afterwards the full new (3.2.) version, so that was their official involvement. So, no malware specifically but, when I indicated the BSODs problems, they were kind enough to assist by running some scans on my PC, and making some suggestions for improvements - but eventually we agreed that as the BSODs were still happening, I'd need specialist advice - and that's when Malwarebytes suggested yourselves, and I came to you. I'm not sure how to 'link' you to our e-mail exchanges, but will ask if Malwarebytes can do something from their end - perhaps explain 'specialist to specialist' what they did and what results were obtained - I hope that may help.
    2. us0*.dll - I know in general terms about dll, but have NOT noticed these specifically so cannot account for them, sorry - all I have found is this link - File Extension US0 - What is .us0 file? How to Open US0 File
    3. Driver updater programs - well yes, Windows and those Intel drivers linked to the Z87 chipset on my Z87-K Assus mobo, but apart from those, only the updater for my Samsung kit - mainly for the laser printer. Early on, when I thought drivers might be the problem, I ran every driver in Device Viewer through 'update driver' but with virtually no changes made. I did have a strange incident where a small utility/program (Wushowhide?) appeared on my desktop, and listed about ten drivers that 'were awaiting update' with 'show or hide' instructions, but they never showed up in Windows Update, no matter how often I ran that and, as several were 'Intel', the specialist Intel Driver Updater didn't show them either. (I was cautioned against using third-party updater programs and have not done so since that initial 'listing'.)


    My apologies for this long response, but am unsure how much may be relevant.


    4.The other question about updating the BIOS is a book in itself, with the Asus UEFI BIOS hedged in my THREE methods of updating, all dependant upon Asus software - NONE of which works effectively with my system, nor with Windows 10 at all (at my guess), since none of them have Win 10 drivers offered. I have tried all three methods, including reinstalling Asus 'AI Suite 3' which was associated with so many problems by other people on the forums and which I rarely got to run, even with Win7 when this mobo was new, and had removed. NOW, if I do run it ONLY to be able to use the BIOS 'Updater' facility within it, it crashes to BSOD instantly, returning a 'Driver Verifier Detected Violation' I have emailed Asus for assistance with (Win10) drivers, but had no response as yet.
    5. Finally, I have tried some 'Safe Mode' since my return, but only for short time; what should I be looking for there, please?


    I'll contact MalwareBytes to see if they are able to give you any useful information from their thread and, once again, many thanks for your assistance for which I am very grateful.

    Re: BSOD WHEA Uncorrectable Error, pre and post Creators 1703 updates

    Chipset Driver issue: you mentioned this earlier as a ‘possible’ source of BSODs problem, so here is what I know/have read today.
    The driver on my system in Device Driver is now:Intel 8 Series/C220 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller - 12.0.0.1082 dated 22/01/2013.
    The Asus Z87-K drivers website offers me:Intel_Chipset_Win_10_10.1.1.7 for Windows 10 32bit & 64bit (WHQL) – dated 09/05/2014
    But the Intel Driver Update Utility tells me that I have installed on my system:Intel 10.0.15063.0, and that there IS an update available Intel 10.1.1.14, BUT ADDS “see detailed description to make sure that you need this file”, yet I cannot find any link to any ‘detailed description’ to make this check, so am rather confused.
    Again, I am unsure whether this will help.

    Re: BSOD WHEA Uncorrectable Error, pre and post Creators 1703 updates

    Just managed to update BIOS (USB method) to '1402', as you recommended, and all seems well so far, so am leaving PC running to see what happens now.

    1. No problems, I thought there was a link in their support forum (I thought you asked for help in their support forum).
    2. .us0 extension is another thing.
      You have unknown (at least, unknown to me) dll files in your system that start with us0.
      Especially if bsods won't stop after your more recent update, I'd investigate those files (and the OS, in general) with malwarebytes team.
      Or you can open a new thread in this forum, in the security arena sub-forum (click).
      In this latter case, check malware removal posting instructions (click).
      You will be helped by Corrine or BrianDrab, usually, but there are also other specialists.
    3. Good.
      I also prefer to use directly windows device manager or the intel driver updater tool.
      Or manufacturers webpage, when it is strictly necessary.

    Re: BSOD WHEA Uncorrectable Error, pre and post Creators 1703 updates

    Hello xilolee :)

    I was working with Ron via Malwarebytes Help Desk and referred him to your forum for assistance. I've already reviewed his logs for infection and see none. The files you are questioning, appear to be from sourcforge.net

    For example, there is this driver in the FRST.txt:

    R3 libusb0; C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\libusb0.sys [44480 2011-05-17] (hxxp://libusb-win32.sourceforge.net)

    libusb download | SourceForge.net

    Re: BSOD WHEA Uncorrectable Error, pre and post Creators 1703 updates

    Thanks are extended to all involved; with the updated BIOS, the PC seems more stable now, as does this owner!

    Re: BSOD WHEA Uncorrectable Error, pre and post Creators 1703 updates

    Hi Ried.

    I downloaded it and didn't find us0*.dll files in it.
    This is the list of them:
    Spoolsv.exe using us009lm.dll, us00alm.dll, us013lm.dll, us009pc.dll, us00apc.dll, us013pc.dll.
    WmiPrvSE.exe using us013du.dll.
    Could they be part of the printer software?

    Re: BSOD WHEA Uncorrectable Error, pre and post Creators 1703 updates

    Hiya.

    This looks like a really old version of that software - just judging by the file date of May 17, 2011 .

    These bsod's did not occur until after Win 10 Update - machine was just fine long before this. After updating his BIOS, his computer has remained stable so it looks like the great folks here at sysnative have once again saved one of my customers. Thanks!
