New PC nightmares! BSOD, amd drivers recovery, etc.

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, please I need some serious help. I have build a new pc, because my old one was crashing 1-5 times a day, so I finally pulled the trigger and ordered all parts. But now my new pc is also giving me a headache. Yesterday I while playing wow, the game crashed and as I was send back to desktop I saw a message about "Display driver AMD stopped responding and has recovered", and today I'm getting BSOD, it's the third already today. First I could not see what it was, then I set the option to not restart, and I took a picture. From the 2 BSOD I got both had different code. One was: 0x00000109 and the other 0x0000001A.

Please help me.

Nothing is overclocked.

Try reseat the RAM and use one stick, remove gpu and use onboard and also reset cmos.

Do you have ACHI mode enabled in the bios also? I've had odd problems with Windows, my graphics drivers and IDE mode being enabled for my SSD in my bios.

Thank's Ill try your recommendation for the ram, also I'll run a memtest tonight. For the gpu, the p67 does not have on board video. Also yes I believe ACHI is enable in BIOS, can you explain what problems can it cause, should I turn it on or off? And also isnt it better for the ssd?

Thank you.

Time to underclock the ram or up the control and ram voltages.

Oops, my bad about the onboard, kinda assumed considering it was sandybridge

ACHI should be on, I ran into problems with my SSDs compatibility with legacy IDE, which lead to problems loading drivers. But nothing for you to worry about if its enabled.

But yeah the RAM is always the first place to start, I find that its the culprit 60% of the time

All I wanted is this computer to be trouble free more than anything, when I did put everything together the ram was set to 1333 where it says it's a 1866, so I went into BIOS and changed that value. Now I still have sometime to return this to newegg and get something different, if I have to underclock my ram, should I be considering in getting something else?

Also another note is: because of the noctua I could not seat my ram on the 2nd and 4th slot, as recommended by the motherboard, so I set it on 3rd and 4th. Is that a major problem? I did not think at first, but with those errors, I don't know anymore, I thought it was just something to do with single channel / dual channel.

@Skaterboydale: it's ok ;p... when I google for those codes, most people are complaining about the memory, but I also have seen people saying it could be the video card ram, or even the psu =/

There is a thread that was made here recently, with a collection of all the BSOD codes and what causes them uugh, if i can only find it now.

As for the RAM. Depends on your board, some motherboards will switch the modules to single channel mode if they're not installed in the right dimms? open CPU-Z and check that their running in dual channel, or triple channel, as ur intel.

0x101 = increase vcore
0x124 = increase/decrease QPI/VTT first, if not increase/decrease vcore... H67/P67 increase/decrease Vcore first then qpi/vtt second.
on i7 45nm, usually means too little VVT/QPI for the speed of Uncore
on i7 32nm SB, usually means too little vCore
0x0A = unstable RAM/IMC, increase QPI first, if that doesn't work increase vcore
0x1E = increase vcore
0x3B = increase vcore
0x3D = increase vcore
0xD1 = QPI/VTT, increase/decrease as necessary, can also be unstable Ram, raise Ram voltage
0x9C = QPI/VTT most likely, but increasing vcore has helped in some instances
0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency or uncore multi unstable, increase RAM voltage or adjust QPI/VTT, or lower uncore if you're higher than 2x
0x109 = Not enough or too Much memory voltage
0x116 = Low IOH (NB) voltage, GPU issue (most common when running multi-GPU/overclocking GPU)
0x7E = Corrupted OS file, possibly from overclocking. Run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r

as you can see, your problem is mainly on RAM

I'll check post above in a minute, I just wanted to post one more thing, I was playing wow and game crashed again. The report was this.



I'm really considering in sending the memory back to newegg and get a different one, can anyone please help e pick one, also with low profile heatsinks so it can work with the noctua d14.

just crashed again: it's getting worst as time go by.

this time I happen to see the amd error again, which makes me wonder if it's the memory or the graphic memory... any ideas?





Should I return both? gpu and memory? in the past, I always had trouble with my last computer, and I never quite enjoyed it, always thinking it would be a work around or a fix in the future, while sometime it work, my experience with it was more frustrated than anything. That was also the reason I did not wanted to take any parts from it, to start from scratch, worry free... But I guess it's just my luck...
