BSOD :: Seemingly Random Blue Screen Crashes Occurring Daily
Dec 17, 2015
My computer has since for as long as I remember experiencing bsod crashes at varying frequencies. I have previously searched online for this twice, but without any success. The error messages in on bsod vary a lot, but I think all that information is in the attached file. And I don't think there's much more to say about it.
Since updating (free, via download) from Win 7 to Win 10 I have had a few problems. I have 3 internal HD: (1) System drive (SSD, 500GB), (2), Media Drive (Seagate 3TB), (3) Documents Drive (500 GB). I also have a USB backup drive that the computer can see.
Seemingly at random, but more usually the Media Drive, doesn't appear when I boot the computer. If I boot the computer and go to BIOS all of the drives appear. Currently the computer in "this PC" recognizes 1 and 3.
Additionally it takes around 5-10 minutes to boot, sometimes hangs and has to be hard reset.
I have had a few BSOD as well, at seemingly odd times. The computer will run with the drives it sees fairly well and eventually BSOD. I should note that sometimes the BSOD is not the one I'm used to from previous Windows installs - it's really just blue with no info.
I have physically reordered the SATA cables (changed the drives to different cables) and this works for a time but eventually the problem persists.
Finally, I thought about doing a clean system install, but was wondering how you do that if you upgraded via free download (i.e. I don't have a disk - there must be an easy solution for that I am sure).
My PC keeps freezing randomly, can be while gaming, online or even when it is just sitting idle on the desktop. Iv'e reinstalled windows twice and updated all my drivers but it still keeps on happening.
My Specs are: Intel Core i5 4430 - no overclock 1 x 4gb DDR3 RAM Gigabyte B85M-D3H Nvidia Geforce GTX 770 Cooler Master RS-500-PCAP-I3
When the crash happens there is no blue screen and the screen just freezes. If there is any sound playing it just goes into a buzzing sound and stays like this until I reboot, after this the PC starts like normal. Is there anything I can do to stop this from happening?
I'm having a lot of issues with a system I recently assembled. Apps like Word, Outlook and Firefox are randomly crashing, BSODs from time to time, and the PC sometimes crashes directly after sleep-mode.
I've tried the following:
-clean install -updating bios -replacing mobo -replacing psu -ran memtest; no errors -removed nvidia card, just onboard graphics; no difference
I was previously running Windows 7 with no issues but then upgraded to Windows 8 and later 8.1. With both of these versions I got random BSOD crashes every now and then. I upgraded to Windows 10 but so far I'm run into the same issues.
The BSOD messages are not always the same e.g. the last one i got was MEMORY_MANAGEMENT but other times I've gotten FAULTY_HARDWARE_CORRUPTED_PAGE, DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION, SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION etc.
I've been strongly suspecting a driver so I upgraded every single driver manually as well as using driver upgrade software but that hasn't worked. The last time I installed Windows 10 I made sure to only load minimal drivers and run it for about a month and in that time I didn't get any crash. As soon as I installed all the drivers for all my peripherals, this started happening again. I may be off here but that's my assumption.
In any case I've attached the log from the crash collector.
I've been getting random crashes and I have not been able to find any pattern. The way the crashes work is this. The computer doesn't go straight to a BSOD. The first thing I usually notice is the internet stops working. Webpages seem to make an attempt to refresh but never actually will load. It also becomes impossible to open new windows. Eventually I can't close windows or programs. Then finally it just freezes. I usually restart when I notice webpages stop loading because I know what is going to happen.
These crashes don't seem to happen during anything specifically but they do seem to be happening more frequently so it's becoming more of an annoyance. I've attached the folder from the DM Log Collector as well as some files from the event viewer.
I have been encountering random game crashes and different BSOD messages for the past month at a high rate. This mainly happens when playing 'Smite' but happens frequently with other games and sometimes when browsing on Chrome. DARKYODK-28_10_2015_122301_55.zip
I am running Windows 10 on a desktop computer about a year old. Custom built by Hard Drives Northwest. Dual boots Windows 10 and 8.1. Windows 10 is the default, which replaced Windows 7 that dual booted with Windows 8.1. Windows 10 seemed to run quite well at first. Recently, maybe for a week or so, I have found my mouse slowing to a stop, restarting for a while, stopping again and repeating this cycle for a while, then the BSOD with various messages including :
DPC_WATCHING_VIOLATION ; CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION and FAULTY_HARDWARE_CORRUPTED_PAGE
Those are the messages I catch. Often the computer just restarts when I am not around so I don't know the error message. I am writing this is safe mode as the computer is nearly unusable in normal mode. Windows 10 is fully updated, I have checked drivers for graphics card, mouse and monitor and all are up to date. Attached is my data log ZIP file.
System: CPU: FX 9590 MB: m5a99fx pro r2.0 GPU: sapphire trix 290x ram: 16gb Powersupply: 1000w
So before this setup, I had a fatal1ty fx 990 that would cause random blue screens, I RMA'd my CPU, my motherboard two times, and replaced my ram, ram slots, harddrive, and video cards with a lower end one, but it would still randomly blue screen with a error and sometimes to the hard drive controller or something (I forgot exactly). I attempted to install drivers with the CD, updated drivers from online, etc.
So I decided to replace my MB and got the one I have right now (m5a99fx pro r2.0) And like magic I dont have any more blue screens, instead the computer just locks up, no response and I have to hard reset it with the button... I tried reinstalling windows on a whole new hard drive with only having the same exact issues.
And I checked the registry with it showing me no major errors except that there was a unexpected shutdown.
The last two days I have been experiencing with Windows 10 several blue screens (CRITICAL PROCESS DIED). This happened while using Reason 8 (music production program), while listening to music, while playing dota 2 (several times here) and when turning on the laptop...
Several weeks ago I downloaded Windows 10, before this I had Windows 8 and didn't ever have this problem...
I run amd processor + amd graphic card, so I've catalyst control and since some days got the latest big win 10 update and amd radeon software -the first amd radeon came as update of catalyst control, but it missed the setting to modify the amount of energy taken by pc in relation to power of it, so I reinstalled latest version of catalyst control i had, and some days ago got another autoupdate of it-.
Since then (the win10update) I'm getting every now and then bsod with different errors, at the end of loading of it tho, pc doesnt reboot automatically and forces me to reset/shutdown. Latest error has been kernel security check failure one.
Other than this, weirdly (b4 the events mentioned in prologue) when I open perfectworld(a mmorpg)+league of legends screen freezes, I get a ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ as sound and Im forced to reset or shutdown.
I used to have kernel security check failures a few times when I opened Photoshop, but that stopped happening for whatever reason. Now, though, I'm having it happen at completely random times (I can't find a common factor), and increasingly more (Already had 2 crashes in the past 2 hours).
My computer will randomly crash with the "Kernel security check failure error" and I have run driver reviver that scans for outdated drivers.I then used this information to manually install some missing pci drivers however i'm still getting the error. What is causing the BSOD?
Although normally random, the freeze (to which this dump file is related) happened whilst listening to music in firefox, using teamspeak 3 and playing guild wars 2, after 2 hours with no issues.I have run memtest86 in multiple memory configs, only to receive under 10 errors in test 13 which I understand is OK.The errors are systematic for my type of memory (all sticks show similar errors in test 13 regardless of memory slot).

Acer Aspire XC-603 computer came with Windows 8.1 ... Upgraded to Windows 10 Home around March 1, 2016 Version 1511 OS Build 10586.164 ... First crash came the next day after the upgrade, then around every two weeks.
