Greetings,

Had a couple of bsod recently and I can't find the cause. I ran a memtest and it isn't the memory.

Here's a copy of the bsod using 'whocrashed':

On Thu 1/24/2013 2:21:05 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\012413-6848-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x7EFC0)
Bugcheck code: 0x1E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0xFFFFF80002C80EC5, 0x0, 0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF)
Error: KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that a kernel-mode program generated an exception which the error handler did not catch.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

try a system restore or re-install windows, the bsod is caused by windows OS or driver errors.

I recently reformatted so i doubt its the OS.

System specs are:

CPU- Intel i5 2500k
Mobo- Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3
GPU- Nvidia GTX 680
PSU- Corsair HX 750w
RAM- 8gb Gskill
SSD- Intel 520 Series

Have you updated your SSD Drivers and PC BIOS to the latest ?

yeah, ssd and bios are the latest. I'd rather not reinstall windows since I recently did and it's such a tedious process. But I will if I have to.

What are you doing when it BSODs?

The file it indicates is ntoskrnl.exe which is a vital OS file. Did you install any other software onto the computer and it then BSOD?

How far did you get into using the computer before it started doing this?

Just doing basic stuff like browsing the net, listening to music. I think it just happens randomly. I've only installed a couple of games since it started and i've removed them since.

Was having a look in event viewer and found this error:

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000001e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff80002caa4f0, 0x0000000000000000, 0xffffffffffffffff). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 012313-6380-01.

Normally happens when the pc is on for 4-5 hours + but it crashed 30mins after a previous crash yesterday.

So did the BSOD's start before or after installing the Games ?

I can't remember exactly, it was around that time.

It happened very rarely, like once a fortnight maybe, and in the last 2 weeks has increased to about 2-3 times a week.

However I removed a usb3 hub two days ago, that I installed in my pc a couple of months ago and it hasn't crashed yet. Could that have been the issue? I'll let you know if it bsod's.

That could be the issue. Lots of people have had issues with USB 3.0 ports causing BSOD's but you never really mentioned that in the post so no one really thought about that.

Keep me updated on any further BSOD's

Yeah I should've mentioned it but I didn't think about it either, since the crash report suggested it was a software related issue.

I guess the issue is sorted now. Its good to hear the PC is BSOD free now.

Enjoy :)
