  1. WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR at random


    Hello everyone,

    This has been bugging me for nearly a year now, I keep getting WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR at random,
    I've tried a fair few things, it's had a APU RMA (initially thought it was a Graphics issue), I've had both RAM sticks out indivually to see if it was one of them, Windows 10 runs on a SSD (BSOD's on both HDD and SDD hosting Windows), I've disabled the Wifi card, updated every driver I can think of.

    I've ran WIndows Mem Diag, various bench mark style programs to try trigger it, but always passes with a clean bill of health, same with the usual sfc, diskchecks.

    There's no fancy hardware plugged in, just a USB Keyboard, Mouse, HDMI, Ethernet, 3.5mm for sound)

    Not plugged into any special socket or PSU, all stock (but I've noticed it does turn itself on sometimes if there's a little jump in the power, IE turning a charger on in the same room for example)

    Have run out of ideas a little now, the warrenty runs out in about a month so I'm hoping to locate the issue while I still can.

    It runs excellently, but then randomly bang it goes blue :/

    Attached zip file of the info and mini dump

    Thanks *Smile

    :)

  2. Random but frequent BSOD - whea_uncorrectable_error

    Hi Mikkel,

    Thank you for responding.

    As most of the troubleshooting steps couldn't resolve the issue,
    I suggest you to download Windows 10 ISO file, create an installation media from other working computer to perform Startup Repair of the computer that you are unable to boot.

    Using ISO file to perform Startup Repair will allow the device to boot the system to Windows Recovery Environment and tries to repair the device.

    Step 1:
    I suggest you to try Startup Repairing the Windows and check if it helps.

    Download the Windows 10 ISO and create a Media Creation tool and then perform Startup Repair.

    Refer to the following link: Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool

    (Refer to the section "Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool” in the above article for creating the tool).

    Step 2: After creating the tool perform Startup Repair.

    I would like to inform that, if your Windows 10 is not able to boot or startup, Startup Repair will come into action and try to diagnose and fix the issue. It will scan system files, registry settings, configuration settings and
    more and try to fix the problem on its own, automatically.

    Perform the Startup Repair:


    • When your computer starts, wait for the manufacturer logo to check the option for boot menu, it will usually be
      F12.

    • The boot menu key might differ with each manufacturer. If you are unable to find the boot menu key, you may refer the user manual.

    • Restart the computer, when the manufacturer's logo is displayed, keep pressing the
      Boot menu option key to enter the boot menu and change the boot option to
      CD\DVD ROM.

    • After you boot your computer using Windows 10 DVD, a black screen appears with gray text "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD". Press any key.

    • Select the correct time and
      Keyboard type
      .

    • Click Repair your computer in the lower left corner

    • Click on Troubleshooting, advanced option and then click
      Startup Repair.

    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of the issue, we will be happy to help you.

    Thank you.

  3. Random but frequent BSOD - whea_uncorrectable_error

    I’m getting a lots of BSOD with whea_uncorrectable_error and I have tried lots of thing/suggestions from googleing…. Before this happened it all worked perfectly fine for a month and all of the sudden
    it began. It have never been overclocked only RAM have been set for XMP standard.

    So here is my information and the behavior of my system

    Setup:

    • ASUS Maximus VIII Ranger Z170 (1+ month old)
    • Intel i7-6700K (Stock speed) (1+ month old)
    • Noctua NH-D15 (1+ month old)
    • Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2666MHz 2 x 8GB (1+ month old)
    • Samsung 850 pro 128 GB (2 years old)
    • Cooler Master Silent Pro 1000W (3 years old)

    What I have tried hardware wise:

    • Removed all unnecessary connections such as extra front USB and AUDIO connection
    • Removed all other drives than the OS drive
    • Switched RAM sockets placing and tried only one at a time (with each one)
    • Moved jumper back and forth
    • Reset BIOS settings
    • Installed OS on different drive
    • Changed to use different keyboard/mouse
    • Firmware updated both SSD and BIOS
    • Unplugged internet cable
    • XMP left on and off

    What I have tried OS wise:

    • Windows 10 version 1607 anniversary update (newest and fully updated windows 10)
    • Windows 10 version 1607 anniversary update (without updating)
    • Windows 10 version 1511 (to determine of some updates between 1511 and 1607 were the issue)
    • Windows 7 service 1 (fully updated)
    • Windows 7 service 1 (not updated) – Pretty stable (1 BSOD total)
    • Booting into safemode seems to remove the issue aswell

    What I have tried software/testing wise (all tests passed):

    • Run memtest86
    • Intel Diagnostic Tool
    • CMD chkdsk
    • CMD sfc /scannow
    • Windows memory dia tool
    • Prime95 for hours’ multiple times (temp really isn’t an issue max 70c but mostly around 60c)
    • DRIVER VERIFIER
    • Furmark
    • PCMark 7 – tried all free benchmarks (on sable win 7)
    • HDTune
    • CrystalInfo
    • Intel Driver Update Utility
    • Uninstalled most drivers and installed all newest drives from ASUS website (only drivers)

    BSOD “whea_uncorrectable_error” happens with no visible pattern, but her is what I have seen:

    • BSOD happens regular 3-15 min from boot time
    • BSOD can happen before login (at login screen)
    • BSOD happens both if left totally untouched or if used
    • BSOD seems to be delayed by prime95 (my thought is that prime95 takes all the CPU power/priority from other threads, so the software issue or whatever can’t be executed)
    • A prime95 test of 1 hour happened without BSOD, 7 min after prime95 end a BSOD happened
    • Nothing specific seems to trigger the issue
    • Windows 7 service 1 without updates - doesn’t seem to be triggered or just not as easily (The only 1 BSOD happened shortly after inserting ASUS driver cd(might be random) on a fresh WIN 7 install, for 2 days it ran without BSOD)

    I have tried online dmp file analysis and can see mostly:

    • Machine Check Exception
    • 0x124_GenuineIntel
    • WIN8_DRIVER_FAULT or WIN7_DRIVER_FAULT

    I hope somebody can help me, I don’t know what else to do, it could be a hardware issue with the newer parts and I could send it for RMA, but to me it seems as a software issue when prime95 can delay it
    and there mostly isn’t any issue with windows 7 service 1 without any updates.

    I have made a ZIP with a dmp files in different folder for each OS

    25) Run memtest86+ version 5.01 for at least 8 passes.
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
    This may take hours so plan to run it overnight.
    25a) Please make sure you use the Memtest86+ version 5.01 with the link below.
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
    The testing is done not by time but by passes.
    The more passes the better.
    There are a significant number of false negatives if fewer than 8 passes are made.
    A false negative is a test pass when there is malfunctioning RAM.
    There is 8 GB of RAM on the computer.
    Memtest86+ version 5.01 testing takes approximately 1 - 2 hours /GB RAM
    Just 1 error is a fail and you can abort testing.
    Then test 1 RAM module at a time in the same DIMM each for 8 or more passes.
    25b) When Memtest86+ has completed 8 or more passes use a camera or smart phone camera to take a picture and post an image into the thread.
