    BSOD WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (hal.dll+395cf / ntoskrnl.exe+25bfbd)


    BSOD WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (hal.dll+395cf / ntoskrnl.exe+25bfbd)
    Bug Check Code: 0x00000124

    Hello,
    I started getting these BSOD's after updating my Windows 10 after 2 months of no usage at all.Windows downloaded and installed a lot of updates, maybe it is unrelated but I did a lot of research but I couldn't identify the root-cause of this. Did various tests on CPU and memtest for RAM for 5 hours all went OK. I would love to get some help to pinpoint what's wrong so I can change the defective parts or upgrade the whole system. Thanks in advance.

    There were 3 bsod mini dump files that were debugged.
    All 3 displayed WHEA 124 error.
    This usually indicates a hardware problem.

    1) open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:
    2) sfc /scannow
    3) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    4) chkdsk /scan
    5) 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


    Sometimes there are problems in the bios that produce bsod.

    6) The bios in your computer: BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. 4901, 14.05.2014

    Please check to see if this is the most up to date version.

    7) To ensure that there are no improper bios settings please reset the bios.

    Sometimes there can be failure to boot after resetting the bios.

    8) So please make sure your files are backed up.

    9) Please make a backup image with Macrium:
    Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free: Macrium Software | Your Image is Everything

    10) And please create a restore point.

    11) When testing for WHEA hardware errors we need to systematically check CPU, GPU, memory and drive.

    Once the bios is reset and there is no overclocking:


    12) Choose one of the temperature monitoring software applications: Speecy, HW monitor, Speed fan:

    HWMONITOR | Softwares | CPUID: HWMONITOR | Softwares | CPUID


    SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer: SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer


    13) download and install the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool
    When the test completes please use the Microsoft snipping tool to post an image into the thread.

    14) Run Prime95 - Stress Test Your CPU

    15) Run memtest86+ version 5.01 for at least 8 passes.
    This may take hours so plan to run it overnight.
    Plan 1 -2 hours /GB RAM


    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool


    Microsoft Community


    When Memtest86+ has completed 8 or more passes make an image of the results to post into the thread.
    MemTest86+ - Test RAM Windows 10 BSOD Tutorials


    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete passes for conclusive results.
    There are significant false negatives if less than passes are made.
    The more passes the better.
    A false negative is getting a pass with malfunctioning RAM.
    Running a test for less than 8 passes is wasting time as it is an inadequate test.
    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.


    Use a camera or a smart phone camera to take a photo of the result and post the image into the thread.


    Addition:
    If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
    If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.


    RAM should not fail under any circumstances (exception for overclocking)


    16) Run HD Sentinel:
    Hard Disk Sentinel - HDD health and temperature monitoring
    When it has completed please use the Microsoft snipping to make an image and post into the thread.

    17) Run FurMark - GPU Stress Test Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials


    Please make note of the importance of temperature monitoring and aborting the test in the GPU link.


    FurMark - GPU Stress Test Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials:
    FurMark - GPU Stress Test Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials


    All of these test should be done with the bios reset and no over clocking.


    For each of the above tests please record maximum temperatures.
    Also record the duration of testing.


    And please make sure that you use the Microsoft snipping tool to post images of each into the thread.

    Thank you I am starting to do all above mentioned but a quick question before I start. I resetted the BIOS and plugged off all HDDs attached to the system ( I have 5 SATA HDDs) Only the OS SSD is running now , I am assuming this is the correct config to start with)

    Prime95 is designed to run indefinitely and if there is an error it is supposed to abort testing.
    Temperature monitoring by the end user is important to be able to abort testing if temperatures remain high.
    If there are no problems running prime 95 you can end testing at 3 hours. If you want you can run it longer as the longer the testing the more it will test the stability of the system.

    For all drives test them with HD tune and post images into the thread.
    This way any hardware can be ruled in/ruled out as a source of the bsod.
    For any HD also run Sea tools for windows on the drives using SMART, short and long generic tests:

    I was doing memtest+ overnight and unfortunately I think there was a power outage
    so I started it over again. Will post the remaining tests as soon as possible.
