    Various intermittent BSODs Win 10 (1903)


    Hello,

    I built a PC for my sister a few months ago and around a month in she started having various BSODs. I believe they started while Windows was trying to automatically update to 1903 from 1809 but I can't recall. Anyways, I currently have her PC to run some tests and figure out what the problem is.

    I was getting some errors in memtest86 test 10 (bit fade) with 2 dimms installed but none with 1 dimm, so with 1 dimm installed I flashed the BIOS to a newer version. I proceeded to run many memtest86's with both ram dimms installed with no errors. Had a BSOD hours later while PC was idle.

    TLDR: Various BSODs. Was getting some memtest86 bit fade errors until I flashed BIOS to a newer version. No more errors but just got a BSOD an hour ago.

    Logs: Attachment 251836

    Some help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi damiann00,

    Welcome to TF BSOD forum.


    1) Upgrade the BIOS: 2 > 3.6
    ASRock > B450M Pro4

    2) Uninstall Norton / Symantec using the applicable uninstall tool

    3) Make sure Windows defender is on

    4) Norton / Symantec can be reinstalled after one week of computer stability (no BSOD or unexpected shutdowns / restarts)

    5) Turn off Windows fast startup:

    Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10

    6) Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:
    7) sfc /scannow
    8) dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
    9) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    10) sfc /scannow
    11) chkdsk /scan
    12) wmic recoveros set autoreboot = false
    13) wmic recoveros set DebugInfoType = 7
    14) bcdedit /enum {badmemory}

    15) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    16) Make sure that there is no over clocking while troubleshooting.

    17) For any BSOD after completing the above steps:

    For any BSOD:

    a) run the V2 log collector to collect new log files

    b) open file explorer> this PC > C: > in the right upper corner search for: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
    > if the file size is < 1.5 GB then zip > post a separate share link into the thread using one drive, drop box, or google drive

    18) Update the specs in the "My Computer" section:

    Thanks zbook.

    I ended up updating the BIOS to 3.5 as Asrock warns against 3.6 for Raven-ridge CPUs. I hope that's ok.

    While running the command prompt commands in sequence the computer would reset itself (not even a BSOD, just straight reset) during /restorehealth. So on the 3rd attempt I went straight from step 9) Restorehealth and it was able to complete followed by the remaining steps you listed. Note: the 7) sfc scan and 8) /scanhealth both worked fine with no errors found but obviously won't show up in this log because of the crashes.

    Here is the log:

    Update all installed applications
    Uninstall currently installed device drivers and then install latest version of the devices drivers.
    Install all of the Windows important updates.
    If you are overclocking (pushing the components beyond their design) you should revert to default at least until the crashing is solved. If you don't know what it is you probably are not overclocking.
    Use SpeedFan to monitor temperatures in computers, overheating can cause BSOD.
    Use Memtest86+ disc to check system memory's (RAM's) for errors.
    Use CrystalDiskInfo to check SMART health report of the hard disk drive (HDD).
    Use Prime95 to stress test your CPU
    Use 3DMark to stress test your GPU

    Hey zbook,

    The computer is now starting to BSOD again and black screen (first time seeing those).

    2 BSOD's which stuck at 100% and 3 black screens after that. All had to be hard reset.

    The stuck BSODs were:

    1. Critical Process Died
    2. Unexpected_kernal_mode_trap (wk32kfull.sys)


    Here are the logs:

    Attachment 251937
    Memory.dmp : MEMORY-damiann002.zip - Google Drive
    (memory.dmp Zip pass is: zbook191 )

    No other peripherals attached while these were happening besides mouse and keyboard listed in my spec.

    Thanks again for your help.

    The bugchecks in the logs displayed:

    9F
    13A
    1A
    3B
    7F
    CE
    EF
    FC

    Multiple different types of bughecks and many bugchecks without misbehaving drivers are typical of an underlying hardware problem.
    The memory dump was not able to be opened.
    The memory dumps need to be collected immediately after the BSOD as Windows will overwrite them.
    The free space is large and overwriting can be modified if needed.

    For hardware these components can be tested with software: RAM, CPU, GPU, and Drive.
    The motherboard does not have a software test.
    Many times software testing produces false negatives (can't detect the malfunctioning hardware).
    In these cases swaps or replacements are needed to rule in or rule out malfunctioning hardware.
