Suffering random blue screens, nothing being logged

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've had something like 7 different BSODs (none of them during any consistent operation) since the week after my new install after Christmas, and I CANNOT pin down what's causing them. I've had enough and I'm ready to go back to my old install where I wasn't having any such problems. Yesterday I hit the command to lock my system, which triggers "SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION", and 20 minutes ago I got nailed with "BAD_POOL_CALLER" completely out of the blue. No crash/memory dumps or minidumps are being generated (despite the blue screens claiming they are), nothing in Event Viewer, no Windows error message on reboot, and the debug LEDs on my board aren't changing with the blue screens (remains on FF, which is "fully functional" on the Blood Rage). There's no consistency and no information and it's only causing anxiety that I don't need.

One hint that I was able to gather, and why I'm putting this here, is that my previous install was done with XMP in the BIOS left off (which knocks RAM down to Intel spec frequency), and this instance I had it turned on (which defaults the RAM to its factory speed/timings). I thought this was causing it so I turned XMP back off, but after rebooting from that change, while Windows is loading it kicks to a 0x124 blue screen (indicating hardware failure). Turning XMP back on solved it but not the random blue screens. I'd love to point the finger at my RAM but if it was actually faulty, it wouldn't have been doing this on my old install, where even if I had XMP on, it would still work. Even if I DO pin it down and conclude that it's the RAM, I can't afford to replace it right now or anytime within the next few months at least. I'd like to think it was my SSD but I don't recall ever seeing another user of any recently made SSD suffering a problem like this.

So, I don't know what I can do about this, or if I'll even start suffering these errors if I go back to the old install (IDE mode, XMP off, Seagate boot drive). Anything helpful any of you can put up?

CMOS Reset?

If it happens again I'll try that. Fwiw it didn't fault on memtest86+, though from what I've read that doesn't really help narrow it down.
