How do I determine what caused a BSoD?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got a BSoD during prime95 for my overclock, but googling around says it could be USB or something?

I provided the dmp. 020112-32729-01.zip 23k .zip file

An unstable overclock will cause very weird issues and cause many things that would not normally crash... to crash. That's why when diagnosing BSODs, you always make it clear for the person to reset their overclock to completely eliminate an unstable overclock causing crashes.

If you reset your system to optimized defaults and you're still BSODing, it's another issue, but if you don't... you know it was the overclock. If you happen to BSOD at fully stock settings, please provide me with the DMP file that is generated next time as well, and I will help you smile.gif

(only reason I am not helping you now is because you mentioned you BSOD'd during overclocking, and the unstable overclock is most likely what caused it).

Well I was running prime95 to check my OC, I was hoping the dmp could tell me what to change in bios thumb.gif

The bugcheck itself was 1e, and AFAIK... that's a lack of core voltage.. so try giving vcore a bump! thumb.gif

Mine's at 1.35 though, isn't that overkill?

I unfortunately do not know, my overclocking skills are inferior. However, if you do get BSODs at stock, let me know, I can for sure help you there tonguesmiley.gif
