1 week of BSOD Please help!!

#1
Hi,

I've been having really weird BSOD's with my system lately. Googled all the error codes and still came up with nothing. Most of the suggested fix was to just strip the system and test 1 peice of hardware at a time, but i know that my system is stable, 5passes with memtest showed 0 errors, prime95 ran for 12 hours no errors, cpu idles at 20c and never gets hotter then 37c, video card temps idle at 38c and never over 58c. Tested my PSU (PCP&C 760w silencer MKII) unit is stable and works on my other pc. For cooling i use a Corsair H80 in push/pull config. Using a NZXT M59 PC case with 3 Scythe slipstream fans (110.31 CFM) and 1 stock case fan. All other system information is in the attachment. Just recently cleaned out my components with compressed air so dust is not an issue. Please if anyone could give me some help or point me in the right direction to fix the issue it would be greatly appreciated.

We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:
There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website)
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
- Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard!
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.
- Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.
It's my opinion that SSD's aren't reliable enough (with current hardware) to be used on a system that needs to work reliably. Until I see reliability I will not recommend, nor will I use, SSD's for critical applications.
06 Dec 2011 - This post tends to confirm issues with certain SSD chipsets and certain controllers - [SOLVED] cant find the cause of BSOD F4 - Tech Support Forum
29 May 2012 - The frequency of BSOD's with SSD's seems to have been decreasing over the last several months. It may be approaching time to re-evaluate my stand on their suitability for use in production systems.
AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems.
Please uninstall all AMD/ATI video stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program
Then, download (but DO NOT install) a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD (in the upper right corner of the page)
Use this procedure to install the DRIVER ONLY: ATI video cards - DRIVER ONLY installation procedure

If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Uninstall". Reboot for changes to take affect.
Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.

If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions).
Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): [DEL] DuplexSecure - FAQ [/DEL] Link broken as of 21 Jul 2012
Alternate link: Disc-Tools.com
Manual procedure here: Registry and SPTD problems | DAEMON Pro Help

If the above steps don't stop the BSOD's, please zip up and upload any new memory dumps with your next post - and we'll see what we can figure out from there.

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs

- Further info on BSOD error messages available at: http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html
- Info on how to troubleshoot BSOD's (DRAFT): http://www.carrona.org/userbsod.html

I've replied to this several times, but the post doesn't seem to take (probably has something to do with the 10 post limit and to the number of links in my posts (I have a ton of them).

I identified possible issues with:
-SSD firmware or storage controller drivers
-AMD OverDrive
-Daemon Tools

Alright thanks i'll work on all those and report back when i'm done.
 


#6
Just a few updates:

1) tried updating my SSD but the crucial updater says i already have the most recent firmware.
2) uninstalled demon tools and tried looking for sptd.sys driver and it looks like its gone from my system.
3) uninstalled AMD Overdrive.

system has been stable for 2 days now with prime95 running for 18 hours. I have tried everything i could think of to make the computer BSOD like multi screening and running massive amounts of programs but it seems like everything is running just fine now.

Thank you usasma for the help!!!
