BSOD While playing Battlefield 3

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey there, I am currently encountering a BSOD that randomly occurs while I am playing Battlefield 3. Usually I would be able to play for roughly 6-7 hours straight with no problems and sometimes even for a day or two until the game hangs in a buzzing bass and looping sound mid-game and comes up with a BSOD:

"Modification of system code or a critical data structure was detected"

I don't have my dump files with me because I accidentally cleaned them out while doing a hard disk cleanup. (Silly me) But if I remember correctly the STOP code was:

"STOP: 0x000000109"

The computer restarts and everything goes back to normal. This is a two week old new system build and I don't think it is caused by old faulty hardware.

Things that I have tried thus far:
- Updated all drivers
- Dropping my CPU overclock
- Reseating my RAM (Definitely while exercising proper procedures)
- Running Memtest 86+ (and it is still running as we speak, no problems thus far 20 minutes into the test)

Can anyone figure the problem out? It seems hard to pinpoint the problem because it happens randomly.

That BSOD generally means that there is too much / too little memory voltage. If you have it set at the memory's manufacture specs (i.e. if it is 1.65) I would place it at 1.6 as SB is very particular about memory voltages.

Might be your ram. Run MemTest overnight.

I haven't touched the memory voltages in the BIOS yet so I guess my voltage is at the manufacturer's stock voltage. (Sorry what does SB mean?) How do I know if I should increase or decrease the voltage to the RAM? If i do need to change voltage, by how much? Thus far in my OC career, modifying my RAM voltages are one thing that I haven't had any experience on. (I have only done CPU and GPU)

Update on Memtest thus far: 40 minutes into the test @ 77% overall and no problems.

I'm heading off for a quick shut-eye for awhile so I'll check back again in about 3 hours. smile.gif

SB = Sandy Bridge
Look at your RAM stick, it should say how many volts on the stick, usually 1.5v or 1.65v. Then manually enter that amount in the BIOS.

Ok another update so far after I woke up. Memtest did roughly 3 run-throughs and found no problems so I am guessing my memory checks out in the working hardware department.

So this means that appleg33k85 may be right about the RAM voltages messing with my system. I will check the module labels again and attempt to manually enter the voltages into the BIOS according to it's specs. Damn..wish me luck that the pesky BSOD will be gone after that >.<<br />
PS: +rep for both of you guys for lending me a hand on this smile.gif

I think it just did..i overvolted the ram to 1.533V and it doesn't seem to be giving me the same BSOD for the past 5 days now. smile.gif I am guess that using all 4 DIMM modules could have actually required a little more voltage to the RAMs. But just yesterday night i encountered yet another BSOD mad.gif but this one is different and will be posted in a new thread smile.gif.

Thanks alot for the help guys! I appreciate it!

@ OP. BSOD 0x109 means you need to add more DDR3 voltage.
