BSOD help

Last response: in Windows 7

Well I have been noticing an increasing amount of BSOD on my system as of late. I cant really piece together what has been causing it as there has been a different BSOD each time.

Here is the event information for the past 3 crashes.

Crash 1 - "The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0x90e73536, 0xa01a96bc, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 070310-23244-01."

Crash 2 - "The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000c2 (0x00000007, 0x00001097, 0x00109203, 0x85bfec50). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 070310-20935-01."

Crash 3 - "The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000000a (0x00000008, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x82cc19e6). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 070310-21871-01."

Is there anyway to attach log files here or just URLs?

Any information would be helpful.

Check the event viewer for specific error details.
start-->run-->eventvwr.msc-->check the system and application sections for red X's

The information in the first post is taken directly from the event viewer. I would upload the event logs directly but it looks like the forums only support URLs, I guess I could rapid share them.

Sure, you could do that.

For now, you may want to run memtest to check your RAM. Make sure to get the right version (32 bit or 64 bit). Memtest 86+ is for 64 bit systems.

Download ccleaner, and run the registry tool.

Scan the hard drive for errors.
start-->run-->chkdsk /r

Let me know how those scans go. I'll download the event files and see what I can find out.

Ok so the memory test returned no errors as well as the check disk.

I actually don't have that file. Does windows 7 use a different name?

No, that's what was listed in the event viewer log. Check the folder options to make sure hidden files are showing.

There were 3 errors in that event log. All 3 were the same. All 3 said it created that dump file.
July 17, 2010 3:28:16 AM

Does the file have a limited lifespan? Even with hidden files and folders enabled (as well as system files) I still don't have anything with that name under the C:\windows folder. Even doing a standard search pulls up nothing.

It shouldn't, but I don't know for sure.

I would say just wait until it happens again, and then grab that dump file. It should pinpoint the cause.

Dump files from blue screens are sent to C:\Windows\Minidump, but the error codes posted provided enough information.




Run RAM tests with MemTest86+ if you have not already done so, regardless of what system you have. MemTest86+ can be run on any system. It is not limited to 64 bit systems at all. MemTest86+ also supports the latest hardware (as newer processors and memory types are released). MemTest86 appears to have last been updated in February 2009, and thus may not provide accurate results.

Please also post your system specs. Diagnosing this issue will prove much more difficult without them. Please also describe if you can, what you were doing on the computer when each of these blue screens occurred. As aford suggested above, perform basic system maintenance with the CCleaner program he linked to. If the blue screens continue, check the amount of dust buildup in your system and clean it if you notice even a thin layer developing on the computer's parts inside the case. When the blue screens occur, try to note the ambient temperate in the room (don't need specific temperature readings, but do try to provide a general idea of how warm it is in the room at the time the blue screen shows up).

Since I don't know exactly what you need I will just post the most detailed summary I can think of. Here is the dxdiag system information. As far as what was going on when the blue screens occurred, the most common time its happened has been when I was running Bad Company 2, I was having the issue with some other games but that seems to have stopped after I updated my video drivers. So the only time I know of for sure that it still does it is when running BC2.

Is Bad Company 2 patch current? Could you also zip up the dump files from C:\Windows\Minidump, post them to a file hosting site and post the link here? I'd like to take a look at the dumps directly, as they may point to a specific file that's causing the problem.
July 26, 2010 1:47:54 AM

Actually already had that update installed, I can try reinstall the video drivers.

Is that the actual command to run the test?

I don't understand the question. Is what the command to run the test?
July 26, 2010 5:58:24 AM

Yes, I already ran a memory test using the windows memory diagnostic test, is the memtest86+ a specific program I need to download or is that built in that I can run using a specific command?

It's a separate program. Download it from here.
July 26, 2010 7:52:59 AM

Forgive me but how exactly do I use this, the ISO says I have to boot from it but short from burning it to a CD and running it at start up I don't know how to do that.

That is how you do it.
July 26, 2010 4:32:44 PM

Well then that isnt an option unfortunately, I neither have a CD burner or any CDs to burn to. Any other ideas?

Check your boot options in the BIOS. If you can boot from a USB, you can create a bootable USB instead of the CD.
August 2, 2010 5:25:29 AM

So I finally found some time to let it run through the memory test (ended up going with the bootable USB), passed all tests without any errors.

So anyone have any other suggestions? :sweat:

Have you applied any overclocks to the CPU, Video card, or system RAM? If so, revert all parts back to their stock clocks and see if the blue screens continue.
August 2, 2010 7:33:31 AM

No everything is as was out of box, I don't overclock for exactly this reason. I don't think the extra performance is worth the potential hassle, but that's just my opinion.

Check to see if there is a BIOS update.
