Various random BSOD-s on a new rig.

  1. #11


    111013-11125-02.dmp is the last crash dump in all the uploads. The last crash may failed to write minidump, i guess.

    Please try the below steps.

    1. Update Marvell SATA driver.

    Your MoBo came with Marvell controller in addition to the Intel SATA controller but no "Marvell" driver can be seen in the loaded modules list. I guess the system is using standard SATA driver came with Windows. Please update the driver from the below link.

    2. Uninstall Gigabyte utilities.

    Uninstall Gigabyte Easy Saver and ON/OFF charge from the system. They are known to cause issues with some systems.

    3. Downgrade Nvidia driver.

    Latest version of Nvidia driver seems to be problematic to a lot of people. There are multiple reports about it causing BSOD issues in Windows 8 systems. So we need to downgrade the driver as a test until the issue is resolved. First uninstall currently installed Nvidia components and display driver. While uninstalling, components like 3D vision, Physx etc should be uninstalled first and the display driver at last. After cleaning the old driver, install the below version.

    NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce 320.49 Driver WHQL

    While installing, choose custom and deselect everything except "Nvidia display driver" and "Physx". Also select "Perform a clean installation" option.

    4. Uninstall ESET antivirus.

    None of the dumps blames ESET but i prefer to uninstall it to reduce the number of third party drivers to a minimum.

    5. Update "Intel Chipset" driver.

    Your Windows seems to be "Windows 8 Enterprise Edition" which is not available to home users. Although you can legally use it until the trial period is over, you won't be able to purchase a licence key for it (it's only available in large volumes).

    Cracks are activating Windows either by installing rogue services or patching critical system files. This will make the system unstable so if you installed any pirate activators, please uninstall them first. Then run "System File Checker" to fix the corruption made to the system files.

    Computer crashed again. At the time of crash the following steps were already done;
    - installed marvell drivers
    - uninstalled all gigabyte applications
    - uninstalled nvidia drivers and performed a clean install of downgraded drivers
    - tried to install intel chipset drivers you linked but my system had newer version of the same drivers so i didn't proceed

    Eset antivirus wasn't uninstalled.

    Computer crashed after being idle, i get BSODs very often after idling for a while, but not exclusively. My power settings are set to shut down hard disks after 20 minutes and monitor after 15. Sleep mode is turned off.

    Below is the new speccy and the latest minidump.

    1. Logitech drivers seems to be not updated.

    LGBusEnum.sys               Tue Nov 24 07:06:48 2009 (4B0B38B0)Logitech Keyboard
    LGVirHid.sys                Tue Nov 24 07:06:48 2009 (4B0B38B0)
    Logitech Gamepanel Virtual HID Device Driver
    Current version seems to be meant for "Windows 7" . Please update it to rule out compatibility issues.

    2. Also uninstall "ESET" as a test. Kernel mode drivers used by AV programs can cause rogue blue screen issues and that is why i recommend to uninstall them. Turn on "Windows defender" to protect against malwares.

    3. ​Gigabyte recommends to install three updates to solve some issues with USB 3.0. Here are the links to them.

    Download Update for Windows 8 for x64-based Systems (KB2822241) from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Download Update for Windows 8 for x64-based Systems (KB2811660) from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Download Update for Windows 8 for x64-based Systems (KB2779768) from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Source : GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - GA-Z87X-UD3H (rev. 1.x)

    4. Swtich SATA ports.

    There are reports that Marvell Controller and SSD won't works nicely and Intel ports are best for SSD drives. There are two white and four black ports in your MoBo. I am not sure which one is Marvell so just switch to the other color which is not currently used.

    5. Adjust RAM timing values.

    Enter BIOS setup and manually set the timing values printed on top of the RAM modules. Refer user manual before doing that. Latest bugcheck also points to a possible memory related issue.

    BugCheck 4E, {99, 411742, 6, 100000000000001}
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
    Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiBadShareCount+4b )

    BTW, if the CPU is overclocked, make sure to revert it.

    1. I only have logitech mouse and it has the latest drivers. I have disabled those 2 drivers you mentioned by renaming them from .sys to .old as i've read somewhere. I don't think i ll miss them
    2. I uninstalled ESET and enabled windows defender.
    3. I already had the updates gigabyte mentioned.
    4. My hard drives were not connected to marvel slots but to regular intel ones.
    5. I adjusted to the default RAM timings being 9-10-9-28

    Hoping for the best.

    I do miss them since my side-scroll middle mouse button stopped working.
    In any case, i don't know how to update those drivers,
    i can't find updates on the official site so i will leave them disabled for now.

    Three days without a BSOD, woah!
    I can't be absolutely sure yet but my hopes are high.
    Presuming it's solved now, it was all about one of three things i changed in the post above.

    So either the old logitech drivers, ram timings or ESET (most likely reason imho).
    I'll let it run like this for a few days more and then i will try to pinpoint the cause.

    I can't thank you enough,
