Windows crash during idle

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone.

Not sure what is happening. Recently my windows has been blue screening when idle. I can game on BF3 for countless hours. But soon as I leave my system alone and idle for more then half an hour I come back to it rebooted because of a crash. Cannot figure out what is causing it. Scanned my system with Advance system optimizer, Windows security essentials, and virpre. Nothing is reporting any errors. I defrag twice a week, and repair registry and any other issues twice a week as well. I consider my system well optimized and running smoothly. But I cannot grasp why I'd be crashing recently.

Any help would be welcomed, Tera online is coming out soon, and I've been trying to DL the beta with no luck due to the crashing at night.

Sounds like a driver problem. I've had this happen before as well. Make sure all your drivers are up to date. Did you update or download anything prior to your current problem? Maybe try a system restore before you noticed the problem started. Also, are you overclocked at all?

How long have you had that CPU, and what overclock is it at?

Ok, after doing some research I stumbled on to something I think might help you figure your issue out.

Go to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings -> Startup and Recovery [Settings] Make sure that "Write Debugging Information" is set to Small Memory Dump (256kb) if it is not already.

Next, make sure that the folder C:\Windows\Minidump exists. If not, create it (allow permission if asked). Make sure any dumps you want to analyze are in this folder.

Download and install WhoCrashed. When the installer is done installing, just uncheck the box to launch, because it will give you an error that Admin privileged is required. Run from Desktop or Start Menu, and click "Analyze".

Now you should be able to view your dump files and get a good idea of what's causing your BSOD..

I've had it a few months. And only a mild 4.6ghz. If it was unstable it'd crash during high load. But I can fold, and stress test fine without issues. So I doubt it's a bad OC since I consider myself fairly experienced now at it.

This is the error. I've recently updated my CPU driver (today, after the last crash) So I'll see what happens. But everything is updated. As I said, I make sure to clean, update, and manage my files twice a week. So I doubt anything is outdated..haha


On Sun 4/1/2012 6:23:23 PM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\040212-8704-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x7CD40)
Bugcheck code: 0x3B (0xC0000005, 0xFFFFF80003BE7949, 0xFFFFF88005520EF0, 0x0)
Error: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

Increase your vcore a few notches (just a few). I'll bet the problem disappears. wink.gif

You've reached what I like to call, the "Burn In" period of these chips. After a few weeks to a few months (depending on the overclock), the chip degrades ever so slightly, to the point it needs a bump in vcore at this point. Not much, like 0.025v or so. Everybody that I have personally talked to, has had this happen sooner or later.

Do that, and make sure your C3 / C6 states are set correctly (enabled if constant voltage, disabled if using offset). I'll bet the problem disappears.

You need to upgrade your firmware for your SSD. Go HERE and pick your SSD then it will tell you how to update your firmware. See if this solves your issue.

He said he's only had this machine for a few months at most. The latest firmware should already be on his SSD, and he should be nowhere NEAR the 5200 hour mark yet. So that is NOT causing his issue. But it is worth looking into, and making sure he's on the latest...to avoid that 5200 hour BSOD later on.

If you're using constant vcore, then c3 / c6 need to be enabled or auto.

If you're using offset vcore, they need to both be disabled.
