    Windows 8 keeps BSODing with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL


    Hi!

    In autumn 2011 I replaced my mainboard, RAM and CPU because the system I had up until then kept throwing BSODs in my face. Everything was rock solid for about 1 year, including after when I installed Windows 8 on October 30 (been running the various Win8 preview releases before that).

    Until some time in late December, the BSODs started happening on my new system, too. There was no driver update (by me or Windows update) even close to the time it started again and it has been getting worse ever since. Yesterday I restored my system partition from a backup because I had 4 BSODs in 3 hours, but I had another one just an hour or two ago.

    I have a lingering suspicion that this Creative Labs X-Fi card could have something to do with it (it really was a crash-fest when Win7 came out), but I don't know how to debug this problem.

    E: drive only has about 2% free space. Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on all hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty)

    We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:
    There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

    Here's some suggestions:
    - Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
    - Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website)
    - Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
    - Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
    - Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard!
    ....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.
    - Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.
    It's my opinion that SSD's aren't reliable enough (with current hardware) to be used on a system that needs to work reliably. Until I see reliability I will not recommend, nor will I use, SSD's for critical applications.
    06 Dec 2011 - This post tends to confirm issues with certain SSD chipsets and certain controllers - [SOLVED] cant find the cause of BSOD F4 - Tech Support Forum
    29 May 2012 - The frequency of BSOD's with SSD's seems to have been decreasing over the last several months. It may be approaching time to re-evaluate my stand on their suitability for use in production systems.
    10 Nov 2012 - I'm seeing an upswing in SSD errors - but most appear due to older storage controller drivers. I strongly suggest NOT using storage controller drivers that don't date from 2012 (if none are available, don't connect an SSD to that controller)
    05 Jan 2013 - very interesting post about difficulties with the Marvell controllers even when not connected to the SSD drives: https://www.eightforums.com/bsod-cra...tml#post169956
    Creative drivers date from 2008 - not likely that they are compatible with Win8. Either update to Win8 compatible drivers, or uninstall it's software and physically remove the device from your system.

    If this doesn't fix the problems, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

    Thanks!

    Please do take into account that this system has been running rock solid in its current configuration for more than a year. That's why I'm tending towards blaming hardware fatigue.


    • I'll begin by updating my BIOS and the firmware of that onboard SATA controller I'm using for my system drive, and the SSD's firmware as well.
    • If it still happens, I'll downclock my memory - the modules I used should be hand-tested, top of the line, but who knows.
    • After that I'll try going with my chipset's audio solution instead of the SoundBlaster card.
    • And if that doesn't help, well, I guess I still have an old WD platter-based hard driver onto which I could restore my backup.


    By the way, regarding the 2008 SoundBlaster drivers - that's Creative Labs at its best. They update their drivers once or twice a year and then only make cosmetic changes. The one I'm using was published on Jan 25 2013 and described as, I quote:

    This download is a driver providing Microsoftฎ Windowsฎ 8 support for Creative Sound Blasterฎ X-Fi™ series of audio devices. For more details, read the rest of this web release note.
    EDIT: I've now updated my BIOS to the latest version, while re-entering my BIOS settings I was also reminded that this mainboard has automatic overclocking features, so I made twice sure they're disabled. The ASM1061 storage controller firmware is part of the BIOS, so while I can't update it on its own, the BIOS update hopefully covered that. My Intel SSD is up-to-date according to the Intel SSD Toolbox. I'll wait 2-3 days before the next step to see if anything changed.

    Looking good so far. Two days of uptime without any BSODs.

    Attachment 16304

    I'll keep things as they are now for another 2-3 days and if it remains stable, I'll mark this thread as solved and write down the exact changes I made.

    Just FYI - I've recently seen an issue with a video card where the down-clocking (when idle) has caused problems.
    Dunno if this could relate to your issues, but I bring it up "just in case".

    Good luck!

    No such luck... the problem merely took a 4-day vacation.

    Two more BSODs today, both IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, both at (nt+0x7B340). That SoundBlaster is going to take flight tomorrow.

    Please zip up the memory dumps and upload them with your next post. They're located in C:\Windows\Minidump

    Okay, I attached the two minidumps to this post. Thanks again!

    I don't know if I can interpret the recurring crash address as indicating a driver issue (versus unstable memory which would cause crashes all over the place). In any case, I'll add Cool'n Quiet (the dynamic downclocking thing) to the list of things to test.

    Now let's see how I can completely purge those Creative Labs drivers (basically all the files you marked in red) as they're not offering a driver removal tool...


    EDIT: In case anyone else is looking to remove Creative Labs drivers, this is what I did:


    • Uninstall all Creative Labs entries from the Control Panel (auto-updater, control center and driver)
    • Run C:\Windows\Temp\CRF000\Drivers\SBXF\support\amd64\ctzapxx.exe (the CRF000 directory is created by the installer and never cleaned up), pick "Uninstall Drivers" and select "Also delete all shared files"
    • Delete the files usasma marked in red from C:\Windows\System32\Drivers
    • Run SFC /SCANNOW once over just to be sure no system files went missing or were replaced

    If you note that the memory address' (where the crash occurred) are very low in the address range. This isn't normal behavior, so I suspect that it's a driver issue - and the faulting driver is scrambling a bit or two. I'm not into disassembly of the memory dumps, so that's really as far as I go with my analysis'

    Also, these are all IRQL errors (STOP 0xA) - which are usually due to drivers. You may want to use Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

    There is some involvement with the HAL - so it's possible that it's hardware, but IMO it's much more likely to be a faulty driver. Most often (with hardware errors) you'll see apparently random BSOD errors - even with bad RAM

    Great work on the Creative driver removal process! I'm adding it to my bookmarks!

    If you still suspect hardware, please run the free diagnostics here: Hardware Diagnostics
    Most of the tests also test different aspects of memory (for example, the hard drive test is also related to the pagefile - where the virtual memory is stored).

    Just FYI - here's the output from the last 2 dumps. They are very similar to the first one.
    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

    After removing that SoundBlaster card and switching to the sound solution integrated into my chipset (a Realtek ALC889 chip which is the DAC or codec with some Intel HD Audio thingy on top, details are hard to come by), this happened:

    Attachment 16756

    None of the drivers you remarked as being too old were on my system anymore since 4 days ago. They were all from the Jan 13 2013 release of the Creative Labs drivers, with the exception of AsUpIO.sys, which was from Asus' BIOS updater (it's bundled in some suite of monitoring and tuning tools that even after uninstalling left drivers, 3 services and auto-run tray icon apps on my system - I removed that stuff as well).

    So in short, the source of the crashes was, with very little doubt, the Creative Labs sound card and/or drivers.

    Thank you for all the help and support! I don't know why you're doing this (I imagine it must be boring and perhaps frustrating), but you have my gratitude. It's just fantastic being able to work once again without fearing that at any moment all open programs and carefully arranged views are gone!
