    BSOD while using Bittorrent.

    Hello everyone.Its great to be here.

    My PC regularly crashes and I am sure it is because of Bittorrent.I have tried many clients to no avail.
    The screen just freezes and I don't really see a "BSOD",and I have to manually restart.This happened many times,but this is the first time a minidump was created,so I finally have something to post.

    I then even reinstalled my OS and all the drivers to eliminate the chances of this being caused due a virus/malware,but it did not help.Please help me.

    Here are my full PC specifications,on speccy :

    Thank you,have a nice day!

    Hi Suddenfall & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    I have analysed your dump files and below has been provided an analysis of the same for informative purposes :-

    A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error condition.
    Arg1: 0000000000000000, Machine Check Exception
    Arg2: ffffe00002090038, Address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure.
    Arg3: 0000000000000000, High order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.
    Arg4: 0000000000000000, Low order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.
    Let's check the 2nd parameter and see what it could reveal -

    I don't think that these errors are due to Bittorrent. This is because there are no 3rd party drivers installed on your system. I would point my finger first to the CPU. If the CPU is not the cause then it could be the motherboard because the hardware error which occurred is a BUS Error.

    Kindly run the Prime95 Stress test using the below guide (thanks usasma!) -

    Prime95 download site:
    GIMPS - Free Prime95 software downloads - PrimeNet
    Prime95 Setup:
    - extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
    - double click on the executable file
    - select "Just stress testing"
    - select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight please run the "Small FFTs" test instead. (run all 3 if you find a problem and note how long it takes to error out with each)
    - "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
    The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
    Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
    Monitor the CPU temperature and DON'T let it exceed 85șC. If it does, then you probably have a CPU cooling problem.
    - CPU temps exceeding 60șC can cause errors in Prime95. Fix the cooling solution first, then run Prime95 again.
    This won't necessarily crash the system - but check the output in the test window for errors.
    The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.
    NOTE: Errors should be considered when:
    - the system BSOD's during Prime95
    - the system freezes during Prime95 (this is different than the extreme slowness caused by the program using all your RAM and CPU)
    - the Prime95 program crashes
    - the Prime95 program shows errors in it's display
    - there are errors in the Prime95 results file
    More details on the use of this test: Torture test your CPU with Prime95
    Let me know the temperatures as well which you are observing while the system is idle and while running the Prime95 test.

    Let me know how it goes ^_^

    Problem has been solved.It was caused by the software "Dlighter".
    Uninstalling it has made my system perfect again.

    Thanks a lot for the help Pranav!

    Hi Suddenfall ^_^,

    Glad to hear that the problem has been solved. Although I am surprised to see that this was caused by a 3rd party software since there were no 3rd party drivers which were present in the dump file.

    Anyways, in case of any further problems, please do not hesitate to post back.
