Getting frequent BSODs always with the error code 0x0000000a

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have always had this problem on my current Ivy bridge PC. I used to have it overclocked to 4.5ghz, it ran through prime95 for 24 hours just fine.

But around every 3 or 4 days I would randomly get a BSOD, its always IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUA, error code 0x0000000a. It usually occurs not when the system is under heavy load, but when I am just browsing the web / switching between windows of light workload. I decided this month to just disable my OC and see if that fixes things. However it has'nt, I have had 7 of these crashes this month. Things I have tried without any result:

- Reformatting (even switched up to windows 8 x64, still get the same BSOD but now with a prettier screen tongue.gif)

- Prime95 run on UEFI defaults (except selecting the XMP Profile for my memory), ran fine for 24 hours

Would love any help in identifying the problematic software / hardware part.

Thanks.

Have you tested the memory for errors?

Try setting your memory speed to 1333MHz & check or increase the memory volts from 1.5v to 1.53v & check.

I doubt its a memory issue as I bought new sticks couple of months to rule out that issue (saw a good deal), went from 4 sticks of gskill ripjaws to the 2x8gb gskill ares (current one in my signature), but the problem stayed the same.

I will add running a memcheck with 1333 speed to my list though.

00a BSODs are sometimes driver, but usually vcore or vtt related in my experience

Hmm any device driver in particular? I am using the newest drivers for everything and have any unused devices disabled in the control panel, plus the problem is still around after a fresh install.

I read about the vtt / vcore related 0x0a codes as well in the Z77 overclocking threads, however this problem is still around with stock UEFI settings, nothing OCd.

reformatting to windows 8,,,pretty much eliminates a software problem,,i would change your sata cables,,,a bad sata cable can really mess up stuff

I usually use bluescreenview to grab info from however heres the last event viewer message "The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000000a (0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000000, 0xfffff802be4f06e9). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\Minidump\053113-7531-01.dmp. Report Id: 053113-7531-01."

In bluescreen view i can see that the crash address is usually ntoskrnl.exe+7a040

However one time it was: discache.sys+c002500 , does this signify a disk issue ? I have 4 drives in my system so isolating this might be difficult frown.gif

Hmm, so I ran a memtest anyway and both my sticks are fine no errors posted. Then I decided to start isolating my hardware one by one, which could have been a painfully long process ... but somehow I got incredibly lucky and the first device I substituted just happened to have stopped my bluescreens, got none for a whole week now! Behold the culprit, the Steelseries Sensei mouse, I have had this thing mouse for a year or 2 now, and it didnt give me this problem on my old AMD Phenom II PC. I didn't even have its drivers installed on my latest Windows 8 install, because the mouse keeps all settings saved on chip. I tried installing the software and the bluescreens still show up so It's definitely hardware. Unfortunately I am out of warranty so there is no replacing this $90 paperweight now, so I will be keeping distant from steelseries in the future frown.gif

Anyway, I hope this ends up helping someone else identify the same issues if they face any with this mouse. It was really frustrating but I got quite lucky in being able to catch this so fast haha.
