    A couple of random BSODs when PC is inactive


    Hello,

    I used to have massive problems with my old setup, but thanks to axe0's attention I have fixed it all.

    Since then, I've upgraded my rig, and ever since I've got a couple of seemingly random BSOD-s. They seem to happen when PC is left idle. Ie. 30-40 mins of inactivity, I notice my screen light up and a BSOD on the screen. I've also got one or two BSODs when randomly clicking on desktop.

    Things I've upgraded: mobo, RAM, PSU. My Win10 install is fresh.

    Important note: my Mobo and RAM aren't officially compatible. It's something I didn't notice upon buying the RAM - the mobo doesn't list my RAM as supported. HOWEVER, the RAM was set in BIOS to default values (as on the box) and passed memtest + I've finished a couple games on such setup without any issues or BSODs.

    Log inlcuded.

    Please take a look and tell me if something needs a bit of tweaking.

    Hi Kaiketsu,

    Apologies for the delay.

    Are you still in need of help?

    If you could look at the BSODs I got, I'd be grateful they are not nearly as menacing as last time, but they do happen from time to time. Perhaps there's a common cause, again.

     DRIVER VERIFIER

    warning   Warning
    Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
    Please create a restore point.

    Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.

    Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

    Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

    If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

    Note   Note
    Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.

    Sorry for late reply - I did not get a BSOD when running verifier.

    I did get a whole lot of different issues, though - but that's hardware stuff. If you could take a peek and maybe give me a hint, I'd be grateful:

    Z87 Sniper - sudden instability

    in any case, I didn't see any BSODs lately. Was something specifically flagged in those that happened to me?

    FYI, if you're still overclocking it may affect the BSOD problem or be the cause of the BSOD problem so I would recommend to turn back to stock while troubleshooting.

    Well, I run the PC overclocked pretty much since I bought a new mobo and RAM

    axe0, is there anything in those logs that looks obvious to you? I didn't get a BSOD since I started the thread, fortunately and verifier didn't BSOD either. If you see nothing that's screwed, I'll assume those were just some random instability "sparks" and return if situation persists.

    I don't see much, the cause is likely the overclock (but can't say for sure without you reverting the overclock back for testing)
