    BSOD On Just About Every Action

    First off, my specs.
    System Spec

    Computer typeBSOD On Just About Every Action :pC/DesktopSystem Manufacturer/Model Number:Cyberpower PCOS:Windows 10CPU:AMD Fx 4300 Quad Core Processor 3800 mhz, 2 cores and 4 logival processorsMotherboard:Gigabyte Technology Co, Base Board, Ultra Durable 4Memory:8 gig RAMGraphics Card(s):Nividia Geoforce GT 730

    The devices I have plugged in are as follows. Cyberpower PC keyboard and mouse, ENHANCE GX-H2 headphones, and a Belkin wireless adapter.

    This imgur link is a picture of screenshots I took from the BlueScreenView app used to read .dmp files (the usual method doesn't work for me)

    As you can see, the drivers causing all this are ntoskrnl.exe, hal.dll, and NTFS.sys. All the information regarding the dmp files themselves are on the picture at the link. If the picture is too small/blurry, open it in Paint or some other photo editing software.

    What I'm doing when the BSOD occurs is varied. Sometimes it's when I log in, sometimes it's when I game, sometime's it's when I browse the internet.

    Some background information on my drivers. I used the Windows Auto Updater and it says I'm updated. I've tried manually updating the graphics card, keyboard, and the wireless adapter but all of them said it was the latest.

    Some help would be appreciated as having 50 BSOD in the time period between 7/13 and 7/20 is not fun.

    Forgot to include the zip file so here you go.

    Whenever I logon, try to use the internet, even when trying to put a subject into this question, an asterisk appears and continues for a line or so. The only way I can get rid of it is to delete or backspace. Very frustrating (just did it again) when
    you're in the middle of something and the asterisk interrupts whatever you are doing. Anyone else experiencing this ? Would apprec*iate any suggestions.*************************************************************************************************

    Thanks Sam. I'm hoping the asterisk key sticking was the problem as I did what you suggested and it seems to be working fine now.

    BSOD On Just About Every Action

    All the dumps I looked at point to microsoft base or kernel files so not likely to be the cause. More likely a non-MS driver problem. Nvidia is often the culprit.

    The driver for your NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 is quite old, version 355.82: 8/25/2015 9:41:50 AM C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\nvlddmkm.sys

    Try the latest, see if it fixes the problem:

    Code: Version: 368.81 WHQL Release Date: 2016.7.14 Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit Language: English (US) File Size: 343.87 MB[/quote] If that doesn't fix it, then lets try Driver Verifier, see if it shows anything:

    Driver Verifier is a diagnostic tool built into Windows 10, it is designed to verify both native Microsoft drivers and third party drivers. Driver Verifier's verification process involves putting heavy stress on drivers with the intention of making bad, outdated, incompatible or misbehaving drivers fail. The required result is a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) which will generate a crash dump for debugging purposes.
    Machines exposed to Driver Verifier will run very sluggishly due to the stress being applied to the drivers.

    Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable in Windows 10

    Pay close attention to

    BSOD On Just About Every Action [​IMG]
    BSOD On Just About Every Action [​IMG]

    and make sure the correct boxes are checked.

    It is not advised to run Driver Verifier for more than 48 hours at a time. Disable Driver Verifier after 48 hours or after receiving a BSOD, whichever happens soonest.

    Always create a Restore Point prior to enabling Driver Verifier.

    What we're looking for is a BSOD with a mini dump that will tell us what driver caused it.

    Thank you for a speedy response. Downloading the new driver now and will run various programs to see if it helps. If not then I'll move on to Driver Verifier. I will post a response after I use the Driver Verifier or if the updated driver stops the BSOD.
    Thanks again.

    Alright. Last night I updated the drivers and it installed fine. Soon after I had another BSOD so I moved on to the Driver Verifier. That also created a BSOD. However, I was not able to log on to disable the Verifier as it would create a BSOD on log in. Sadly, turning it off through the Control Panel was the only way I knew how so I decided to just reset the PC. No biggie, I've only had it a week. After the fact I realized the .dmp files were not included in the files that the PC decided to keep, which is kind of dumb but oh well it happened. I then reapplied the Nividia update, just in case, and got three BSOD from then until now.
    Those .dmp files I do have.

    BSOD On Just About Every Action

    4 or 5 of the dumps show Authe3nticAMD as the cause. This is generally a CPU problem, sometimes caused by incorrect voltage from PSU or clock speed wrong (over or under clocked). Sometimes is just defective hardware:

    I downloaded CPUZ to check clock speeds and OpenHardwareMoniter to check voltages.
    Here is the result
    Attachment 91528
    According to CPUZ, my clock speeds varies with the lowest seen being 1406 and the highest being 3917.
    According to OpenHardwareMoniter my voltage is at 3.168v and that is also the max. However, it may be possible that I have read OHM wrong.

    Nothing useful in the dump unfortunately.

    Are you overclocking anything? I'm not a hardware type so don't know much about clocking and voltage. I'll ask one of the other folks here to take a look at this thread.

    Meantime it would be good to test your RAM, make sure there are no problems there.


    Follow this tutorial: MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    BSOD On Just About Every Action [​IMG]

    BSOD On Just About Every Action [​IMG]

    is a diagnostic tool designed to test Random Access Memory (RAM) for faults. MemTest86+ will verify that:

    • RAM will accept and keep random patterns of data sent to it
    • There are no errors when different parts of memory try to interact
    • There are no conflicts between memory addresses

    Memtest86+ runs from bootable media to isolate the RAM from the system, no other components are taken into account during the test.

    BSOD On Just About Every Action [​IMG]
    MemTest86+ needs to run for at least 8 passes to be anywhere near conclusive, anything less will not give a complete analysis of the RAM.

    If you are asked to run MemTest86+ by a Ten Forums member make sure you run the full 8 passes for conclusive results. If you run less than 8 passes you will be asked to run it again.

    BSOD On Just About Every Action [​IMG]
    MemTest86+ has been known to discover errors in RAM in later passes than the eighth pass. This is for information only; if you feel there is a definite problem with the RAM and 8 passes have shown no errors feel free to continue for longer.

    Running 8 passes of MemTest86+ is a long and drawn out exercise and the more RAM you have the longer it will take. It's recommended to run MemTest86+ just before you go to bed and leave it overnight.

    @Ztruker, never noticed the difference between GenuineIntel & AuthenticAMD in 0x124? *Smile

    @Mashalien, were those BSODs at boot when driver verifier was enabled this BSOD? No dump showed driver verifier enabled.

    The 0x4E look like to be caused by drivers, it looks like something keeps attempting to free memory that was already freed. Though that would give usually a different BSOD than a 0x4E (IME), but as we have only a minidump the memory descriptors of the addresses with which this driver attempted to free the memory cannot be checked.
    Code: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (4e) Typically caused by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists (ie: calling MmUnlockPages twice with the same list, etc). If a kernel debugger is available get the stack trace. Arguments: Arg1: 0000000000000099, A PTE or PFN is corrupt Arg2: 0000000000075305, page frame number Arg3: 0000000000000002, current page state Arg4: 00000170001786cc, 0[/quote]

    BSOD On Just About Every Action

    Memtest had 10 runs with no errors. @axe0 yes those were the BSOD on boot when driver verifier was on. Sorry about the lack of dump files about it but in order to access the pc I had to reset it. For whatever reason, dump files aren't included in the 'Keep Documents' option and I had yet to make a restore point.

    How would I go about checking the memory descriptors of the addresses with which this driver attempted to free the memory?

    That is more a thing that we do.
    You would require knowledge about Windows as you need to know what is and what is not a violation, you also need to know how to debug a kernel memory dump.
    With knowledge about Windows I do not mean the visible part, but the part 'behind the scenes', thus the part that happens in the background that the user is not aware of.

    An example of a mini memory dump.
    Code: ******************************************************************************* * * * Bugcheck Analysis * * * ******************************************************************************* UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP_M (1000007f) This means a trap occurred in kernel mode, and it's a trap of a kind that the kernel isn't allowed to have/catch (bound trap) or that is always instant death (double fault). The first number in the bugcheck params is the number of the trap (8 = double fault, etc) Consult an Intel x86 family manual to learn more about what these traps are. Here is a *portion* of those codes: If kv shows a taskGate use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv. Else if kv shows a trapframe use .trap on that value Else .trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken (on x86, this will be the ebp that goes with the procedure KiTrap) Endif kb will then show the corrected stack.
