Sudden BSOD and different error message everytime.


Mar 17, 2015

Okay, so this is very frustating, before i start tell everything, i think it's better for you to know my rig first:
i7 6700k, 2x4Gbs DDR4 Ram, MSI b150m mortar, 250gb samsung 850 ssd, 2tb seagate sshd, gtx 970, corsair cx600m psu.

So, start from this evening, i suddenly i get a random bsod with different error message, i always got bsod about 3 minutes after i turn on my pc, my os was windows 8.1, it's installed on my ssd, after try anything that stated on internet, nothing can fix it, so i decided to reinstall my operating system, but the worse thing, i also get the same issue when i try to fresh install my windows 8.1, i also get error when trying to install linux (sometimes pc get restarted by it self). I tried everything i can, but i can't fix it.

Things that i've tried and you need to know:
-It was working (i mean i didnt get any bsod) on safe mode before i format my ssd.
-Tried to use 1 stick of ram instead of two, not working.
-Tried to change the ram slot, not working.
-Unplugged all of the sata cable on motherboard that connected to my ssd and sshd, and wait for 3 mins at windows installation menu, still get bsod. (So i assume its not the storage problem)
-Unplugged the gtx 970 and using onboard graphic card, still not working.
-Idled for 1 hour at BIOS menu and it seems that my pc's temp is stable at 45c degrees, not overheat.
-Last application i installed is Razer Surround, and that was 2 days ago.
-I don't update any of my driver since last 3 weeks.
- This pc is only 2 months old.

I assume it's RAM's fault.

Can anyone help me?

In my experience, different BSOD codes every time is typically due to a corrupted windows installation. The cause of the corruption is typically a hardware failure of the following items (in order of chance, highest to lowest): RAM, HDD/SDD, CPU, Motherboard.
Start by doing what FlyFisherman suggested, then start running some diagnostics. I'd recommend something like 'Breakin' as it'll test a whole bunch of things at once (, but it can't tell you between CPU/Ram error, just HDD or CPU/Ram. Also, let Breakin run for at least 2 hours. To narrow that down you may need a second computer to test the ram, use Memtest86 ( Make sure you run Memtest at least 2 passes.
Some things to try:

1. memtest86+ (run overnight - 12 hours) will tell you if RAM is a problem.

2. Event Viewer (System log) will include likely clues to your problem

3. Do you let Windows install hardware drivers ? Not sure about 8, but the procedure for 7 is here

4. Do a fresh install of Windows, and install all of your hardware drivers from manufacturers web sites BEFORE running windows update.

Make sure you run Memtest at least 2 passes.
Make sure you run memtest 7 passes
Each pass has a very different algorithm to check the memory's, and after the fifth pass memtest will do a more troughfully test pattern all the way up to the seventh pass.

For 8GB memory it will take the whole night, but just let it run. If there is a problem You can directly interrupt.

Thanks for the answer guys.
My computer suddenly work and i've installed Windows 8.1 into it, everything works fine until i install the driver, i start getting BSOD again about 3 minutes after i turned on my PC, i tried to use 1 ram stick instead of 2, and it work, but just for about 30 mins, then i start getting BSOD again, and now, installed both of my ram stick but in different channel, it's working now, i will see if i will still get the BSOD, i will try the memtest tonight.

I've checked te BSV, don't know actually what to do with it.

EDIT: Okay i start getting bsod 30mins after i installed 2 stick of ram on different channel, so i started the memtest few hours ago, it's been 5 pass, without any error, i will leave it till tomorrow morning, lets see what will i get.
I think the problem is the driver that installed on my pc, because everything was fine after the fresh install (no bsod). I start getting bsod after i installing my realtek audio driver and gpu driver. I will try to uninstall my gpu driver tomorrow after finished some memtest pass, if it's still not working, i think mobo is the problem.

This is kinda confusing, i even get bsod when i was trying to install my os, and suddenly the bsod is gone on the next day, but only for 2 hrs (start getting bsod after i installed driver and stuff). While i didnt get any bsod on safe mode.
What is "the driver" ... you have dozens of drivers installed on your PC, knowing which one is causing the problem is essential to determining a solution. After making sure memory is not the issue and identifying which driver is responsible and removing it, you may be able to correct the damage by repairing the MBR either automatically using the install media to do a Windows repair. Another option is to manually rebuild

Launch a command prompt and Run as Administrator. In the console, type in the following commands Hit “Return” after each line:

Bootrec /fixmbr
Bootrec /fixboot
Bootrec /rebuildbcd

Reboot the computer and hopefully the problem is resolved.
in the photo, one column is critical, it is parameter 1, it contains the error codes but is cut out because the column is not wide enough. The error codes help pin point what subsystem reported the error.

How about this one:

But wait, i decided to stop the memtest at 9th pass last night, and after i tried to boot my PC on normal mode, i didn't get BSOD again for next 3 hours, then i turn off my PC and went to sleep. I will see if it still work fine for next 2 days.
your memory management errors indicated a error code 0x41284 =A PTE or the working set list is corrupted.
this is the table that maps the contents of virtual memory (pagefile.sys) to physical memory.
you also have a bunch of drivers that are having there data corrupted in memory error code 0xc0000005.

I would update the drivers for your motherboards chipset and SATA drivers (you might also have to update the BIOS, check your bios version to see how out of data it is)

-there can also be device drivers that corrupt other drivers data. (take a bit of effort to identify them)
- errors returned from your storage system can also cause this type of corruption.

-you might consider turning off the systems virtual memory and delete your hidden pagefile.sys and then turn it back on to create a new on.
- you might also, run crystaldiskinfo.exe to read the SMART data in your drive. (to see if the drive has errors)

you might put your c:\windows\minidump files on a server like microsoft onedrive, share them for public access and post a link.
there are a bunch of old device drivers that are known to corrupt memory.
