Rig is suffering from some instability, freezing and BSODs. Need to find the culprit.

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
About a month and half ago, I started seeing my computer to freeze randomly on firefox, bf3, and windows explorer. Then came the BSODs which I randomly get as well. These are 0x000007A and 0x000077, and 0x00000f4. Happens every time i run Hot CPU tester after 1.5-2 hrs. To also contribute to the list from hell, I hear a high pitch noise sometimes coming from mobo or cpu when cpu is idle.

Need some help troubleshooting these suckas!mad.gif

Hi smile.gif

1. These are usual symptoms of an unstable overclock on any component. If you're overclocked, please bring all clocks back to stock to ensure this is not an overclocking related issue. You're more than welcome to overclock again once your issues are solved.

2.

Please navigate to C:/Windows/Minidump and zip up any dump files located there that you'd like to have analyzed, and then attach that zip here. If there are no dumps located in C:/Windows/Minump, you may be writing full memory dumps to C:/Windows, and it'll be called MEMORY.DMP.

If there are no dumps in either of those locations, but you know you have a page file set up, any "cleaner" programs such as TuneUp Utilities, CCleaner, etc, will delete this upon use.

feels like RAM timings or IMC voltage to me..
a)set your IMC(vtt/vccio) to 1.11-1.14
b)set your RAM timings manually to whatever they're rated at for whatever frequency you're running.
c)after that..If you still have problems..bump vcore 2 notches

I do not have anything changed in BIOS but sata mode which is in AHCI mode. I also have noticed that my BCLK drops under 100.30 to 99.77 when running cpu benchmarks on prime95. It never did that before all these shenanigans started. Any further thoughts on what might be the issue?

I'm also attaching a zip of my dump files. Minidump.zip 241k .zip file

Update: I'm also getting this error 'C0000135 The program can't start because %hs is missing'

They're all F4 bugchecks with no actual culprit, just pointing to Microsoft EXEs and files (3rd party driver not being shown or hardware). Have you updated the firmware on your SSD?

The reason why you only see the F4 bugchecks it's because there BSODs haven't appeared in a whle so must've erased the dumps before.

And, actually no, I haven't updated the firmware for my ssd. Think that's the cause?

OCZ's sandforce drivers have been known to cause BSOD's
Normally when this happens and your computer restarts, the SSD will go missing from the boot sequence until you do a hard restart. If this has happened its definitely your SSD firmware.
If not it could still be the problem and it wouldn't hurt to update it just to be safe/

LmG, that's so true. I have seen my ssd sometimes disappear from the AHCI check list during boot up. So it looks like I'll be updating the firmware. One question, when updating firmware, should I back up windows and secure erase before updating firmware?

It is good practice to just backup all important files from your SSD in case you get a bad flash. However, it isn't necessary to go through a secure erase. You should be able to just flash your drive as is and boot up normally with the new firmware. smile.gif
