    Infinite BSOD Loop, Various Error Codes

    I did a teardown of my Windows 10 machine to clean all the parts and do some cable management and when I reassembled and restarted I had some issues. It started with a corrupted RAM BSOD, so I cleaned the connector pins on the RAM sticks with alcohol. Then I couldn't get a video output to my monitor...

    Eventually I got it to work and boot, and made it to the start screen. Then the first BSOD happened, I don't remember the error code. It restarted, made it past post, then another. Then another, and another, and another...

    I inserted my Windows 10 bootable USB drive and attempted to boot to it, nope. I cleared the CMOS on my ram, swapped ram stick positions, ran a memOK! test. The test came back OK!.

    I unplugged the sata cable with my (one and only drive) SSD, booted to the USB drive and it worked. Reformatted, reinstalled, made it to start screen and... BSOD. Loop.

    I know it seems like this could be a hardware issue, but all of this hardware was working fine before I did the teardown. I rechecked all of my work after I started getting this post-reassemble errors. Everything checks out.

    I'm not really sure what to do, nor can I post a crash log due to the fact that I can't make it to the desktop, or if I can, I'm only there for a few seconds.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your time.

    Some of the BSOD codes I've caught thus far:

    Eventually I will get a RecEnv.exe - Application Error

    The intrusction at 0x00007FFA718C4830 referenced memory at 0x000000000057. The memory could not be written.

    Click on OK to terminate the program.

    Updates: I've run a chkdsk through the command prompt found in troubleshooting tools in the USB Boot drive. Everything comes up green, though I do get a 'failed to transfer logged messages to the vent log with status 50' though I understand this to be normal when running a chkdsk from the troubleshooting place.

    I'm becoming more convinced it is a hardware issue.


    I've now attempted to run the system with one stick of RAM. Swapping the sticks and trying all variation of stick 1 and 2 in slot A and B one at a time. Blue screens are continuing.

    With one combination I received error:

    winlogon.exe - Application Error

    The instruction at 0x00007FF9F65CDD3E referenced memory at 0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFF86. The memory could not be written.

    Either both of my ram sticks are fried, though they do not appear damaged in any way, or it's my mother board. I don't know how this could've happened, as when I cleaned it I just used compressed air...

    Is the firmware of your SSD updated? (I know this might be a question you can't answer)

    Infinite BSOD Loop, Various Error Codes Diagnostic Test Infinite BSOD Loop, Various Error Codes

    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note

    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

    Not sure, probably not.

    Also I checked last night, and despite working for the past 2 years, and BIOS being up-to-date, my SSD is not on the compatible list. I'm trying to figure out if it's the RAM or the motherboard... Not sure where to go from here.

    Thanks for the response.

    Could you link me the site that shows the compatibility?
    You checked for compatibility before getting it, right?

    Wish I could say I did, but I can't remember. If Windows 10 updates the drivers on these things then the drivers are up-to-date.

    P8Z77-I DELUXE | Motherboards | ASUS USA

    Currently, a friend's brother has taken the RAM as he is in IT and hardware. He's going to test the RAM, if it comes back okay, I'll have him test the motherboard. If that fails... I'll have him test to see if I'm in the matrix and this is an elaborate experiment.

    SSD's uses drivers that are called firmware which can't be updated by Windows, because Windows doesn't update those kind of drivers. You can only manually update the firmware.

    I can't find much about compatibility on the site of Mushkin.

    Neither could I. I'm running a memtest right now, first pass, 0 errors. Will update with more info. Afterwards I"m going to use another computer to update the firmware on the SSD. Will update from there.

    Thanks for your help/patience.

    Keep me posted on the situation :)

    Okay, a total of 12 passes on the ram. One set of 4 and one set of 8, and it comes back A-OK memtest86 approved. So perhaps then it's the hard drive. I'm going to attempt to update it's firmware today, then see how things unfold. Will update later. I took pictures of the results of the memtest here.

    Memtest86+ is better than MemTest86.
    I would advice to run MemTest86+ as instructed.
