Windows 10: Unpredictable and random BSODs - Frustration Factor: Chainsaw

    Thanks for the advice,

    The memtest ran for 15 and 1/2 hours, after 4 passes found 0 errors.
    I cannot give it any more time than this right now.

    Nvidia drivers got to the unloading and loading part of installation, and caused BSOD (.zip attached).

    The Realtek drivers were hard to locate.
    I saw another guy had similar issues - sorry for posting in his thread (there is nothing in the BSOD forum rules to say, "do not post in another person's thread") - I was hoping that he had found a download.

    The drivers cannot be found using term, "RT640 NT". They are Realtek GBE PCIe drivers: here

    I am installing the drivers again now.
    Hopefully the graphics driver will not cause BSOD on installing again.

    Posting in others thread isn't against the rules, but I thought you were someone who had a new problem

    Memtest with 4 passes isn't enough for conclusive results, all dump files are pointing to memory corruption.
    The graphics drivers are also getting involved, but I'm not sure if it is due to accessing corrupted memory or if there is a problem with the graphics drivers.

    Hi again,

    A different one this time, RDR_FILE_SYSTEM and KERNAL_SECURITY_CHECK failure.

    Currently, I am using teamspeak 3. The machine seems to crash more often when this is used, or music is streamed through a browser. I was hoping it was network drivers, but...

    I will run the memtest again later, and leave it for a longer time.

    RDR_FILE_SYSTEM is pointing to your memory.

    After you have the results of MemTest86+ (8 passes at least) please do the following for the kernel_security_check_failure

    Unpredictable and random BSODs -  Frustration Factor: Chainsaw Diagnostic Test Unpredictable and random BSODs -  Frustration Factor: Chainsaw

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

    Please read and run driver verifier.

    A windows driver is blamed in a crash, but that usually means that a 3rd party driver is actually the cause.
    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.

    I will do the memtest tonight and tomorrow.
    There was only 1 other blue screen today so far, DRIVER_IRQ_NOT_LESS_THAN_EQUAL.
    Thanks again - speak to you in a few days.

    OK, if you want to know what possibly caused that bluescreen just upload a new zip file
    Or wait until you have the results of the tests, it is your call :)

    Thanks - the zip is on the machine that is doing another 15 hours of memtest

    A question - I noticed that the average temp of the CPU when running the memtest is about 60 degrees C. This seems to be quite high for such a light load and I wondered that maybe, if the CPU is this hot when doing a test like this, it is running a little too hot for heavier loads like with media encoder and the like..? Can overheating like this show as memory errors, if the machine is straining with high temps?

    Maybe it is worth checking the CPU after this, and to make sure the heatsink is on firmly and change the paste.

    Do you know what the average temp ought to be for a CPU performing memtest..?

    It is a normal temperature, you don't have to worry about it.
    If the temperature comes above 80C, then it is worth checking.

    The average temperature for the CPU is around 30C to 70C, depending on how well your cooling system performs and how much heat the CPU generates.

    Only when stress testing the CPU, or under heavy load (playing a heavy gam), then the temperature will raise quickly.

    9 passes and memtest reported zero errors.

    Running driver verifier and leaving idle for a bit.

    No crashes in the past hour :)
