Windows 10: BSOD at random times. WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR

  1.    20 Sep 2016 #1


    As of This Saturday my PC began blue screening in the middle of gaming, idle, playing on facebook, etc etc. There appears to be no common correlation. I checked the event logs and found that it appears that dump files arent being created "Event ID 45, volmgr, The system could not sucessfully load the crash dump driver." I ran bluescreenview and it shows nothing.

    Hello KMaston :)

    The WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR BSOD is likely to be hardware related:

    The usual procedure is to run a series of hardware tests and report back on the results.

    See the following for some guidance:

    Run Prime95 to stress test your CPU. Prime95 Tutorial
    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ Tutorial
    Run SeaTools to check the integrity of your HDD. SeaTools Tutorial
    Run Furmark to stress test your GPU. Furmark Tutorial
    Run chkdsk Chkdsk

    Interestingly enough, this morning I go to my PC and it is blue screened. Upon restarting it my BIOS notifies me that my PC had an issue overclocking. I have never overclocked my PC (Couldn't even tell you how to do it.) but I did reset the BIOS settings a week or so ago to "Optimized Defaults" I wonder if it is trying to overclock my PC and that could be the root of everything?

    Certainly you will find overclocking will stress your PC and make it more likely to crash. However, Optimized Defaults should not be causing you to overclock the CPU.
