[SOLVED] Twitch tv BSOD when watching streams 10-20 mins

Q: [SOLVED] Twitch tv BSOD when watching streams 10-20 mins

So far these is the 4th time it has done these for the past 2-3 days.
Heres what I know so far about the latest one
On Mon 2/16/2015 12:09:20 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\021515-9547-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x74EC0)
Bugcheck code: 0x101 (0x19, 0x0, 0xFFFFF880031D7180, 0x3)

Bug check description: This indicates that an expected clock interrupt on a secondary processor, in a multi-processor system, was not received within the allocated interval.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. This problem might be caused by a thermal issue.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.
My cpu specs are sabertooth 990fx r2.0, Amd fx 8350, 16gb ram, Geforce gtx 750 ti. I have bios updated and memory tested checked and I never had a BSOD until now on these site. Also they only program I was running was google chrome

Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] Twitch tv BSOD when watching streams 10-20 mins

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

So I got the card "working" as far as I can tell. I did put in an RMA but a day before they responded I decided to do a clean install of everything. Updated drivers,firmware ect. Have a feeling my motherboard pci-e slot was messed up. Weird that it did it.

I am pretty sure the card is functioning fine now. But to be sure wanted to find the cause of this NEW BSOD and make sure it is not the graphics card. If it is, going to probably RMA the card.

I was wondering if someone here could help me out. I've been having various BSOD's whilst watching gaming streams on twitch.tv. The BSOD's do not happen on launch, but after the stream has been playing for some time. They also ONLY happen whilst watching a stream. They do not occur doing any other memory intensive activity. I'm a bit perplexed why this is happening.

I've used a program called BlueScreenViewer to look into the problem. I've had the following error messages:

Apparently all of these BSOD's have been caused by ntkrnlpa.exe (NT Kernel & System) and halmacpi.dll (Hardware Abstraction Layer DLL).

I've also ran a program called memtest86 3 days ago. This actually did pick up on many memory errors during Test #6, the Block Test. I then proceeded to remove what I thought was the faulty memory. Memtest86 then passed the Block Test. I thought the problem had been resolved, as I had not received a BSOD at all following this. However, I have just now received yet another BSOD 3 days later and it seems the problem has returned.

EDIT: I have just ran memtest86 once again. The errors have now returned. I got 6000 errors on Test #6 (Block Move Test), 3000 errors on Test #8 (Random number sequence) and 1 error on Test #9 (Modulo 20, Random pattern).

I've attached the minidump files.

Any ideas?

A:BSOD whilst watching Twitch.tv streams

The dump files are irrelevant at this moment in time if you are getting errors in Memtest86.

You'll need to swap your RAM sticks around to determine whether or not it's the RAM sticks or motherboard DIMM slots.

If the output is like this then you have bad RAM so the stick(s) need replacing.

TestSlot 1Slot 2RAM 1ErrorErrorRAM 2GoodGood
If the output is like this then you should replace the motherboard, however you can leave that DIMM slot empty although it's not advised to use a system with a faulty motherboard.

Just a little background. This system is about a month old and has been running stable using 1333mhz ram. Today I purchased some G.Skill 1866mhz and installed it, and have been getting some weird issues that I did not have before. I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool and it came back with no errors. The BSOD's that I have seen have been Memory_Management , System Service Exception Win32.sys and Critcal Process Died. I had no BSODS before I installed this ram. Could it be a voltage related problem in the BIOS? I also have the CPU overclocked to 4.2ghz as well. Just looking for any answers.

Today I've had several BSOD's while watching streams and youtube videos, they all had a different fault code, so I'm at a loss.

Thanks in advance!

Been having multiple BSODs lately and would like to figure out what exactly is happening. I have to point out that the triggers for BSODs are a bit different every time.

For example, I found a youtube video that had the option to pick 4p quality and pretty much instantly crashed the system and there for resulting into a BSOD.

The other BSODs are pretty much from watching a live stream on twitch.tv.

The following info is what I have collected according to the instructions:

- Windows 7
- x64
- Windows 7
- Retail
- ~4 years
- ~4 months

- i7 920 @ 2.66GHz
- ATI Radeon HD4890 1GB Vapor-X
- Corsair 650 WATT

If something is missing, please let me know.


PS. I have some additional log to add if that's OK: click

I have consistently receiving a BSOD while viewing streams at twitch.tv. The timing is unpredictable, and it does not appear that I need to be doing anything else simultaneously to have a system lockup.

The resulting archive from the DM Log Collector are attached. In addition I have run the System File Checker and receive the message regarding a corrupt file that was unable to fix. I have attached this log file as well since I don't know whether its relevant or included in the collected zip file.

Final bit of information which may be totally unrelated. A Windows update from around 10/15/2014 has repeatedly tried and failed to update. This is:
Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 (KB2972100)

Thanks for any advice


Edit: Realized I could replace the incomplete system information archive with the proper file.

Good day/evening, depending on where you're from.

I've been having some issues recently with my computer crashing while hosting streams with Open Broadcaster Software on Twitch. The screen will entirely freeze, and whatever sound was playing will stutter repeatedly and rapidly until I hard shutdown via the power button, or (in the most recent case) it BSODs. It's only BSOD'd for this kind of thing once now. Other programs running at the time were Firefox and Chrome, Discord, and Capture Software for my Nintendo 3DS. In addition, this has also happened while playing RIVE and RimWorld. The only time it has happened while I haven't been streaming was while watching replays of Summer Games Done Quick on YouTube.

I'm not sure if it's related, but I've had instances of bringing my PC back from hibernation and finding that I can't connect to the internet, realizing it's something with my PC, and as I start to close programs, whatever I try to close freezes, including and up to Explorer. At that point I have to hard shutdown.

I'll check back in a while as I know this isn't instantaneous, so please let me know what additional information you need if the attached logs aren't enough.


A:BSOD involving Streams, Twitch, and error 0x124.

Hello Ultymoo and welcome to 7Forums!

The 0x124 error means that a critical hardware error has occurred and I would recommend that you update your BIOS as it is a bit old, here is the link to the support page for your motherboard:

MAXIMUS VI HERO | Motherboards | ASUS Global

Oh and use the BIOS utility, if you are unfamiliar about flashing the BIOS.

And the three remaining dump files pointed towards SA7160.X64.SYS which has something to do with Broadcast/AVStream.

That's all for now, if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!

Cheers, Boris

Whenever I try to watch someone streaming a game on twitch.tv my computer eventually bsods. Sometimes it only takes a few minutes, and sometimes I can watch for an extended amount of time, but eventually it will bsod.

I have attached the past 3 bsod's. I have had over 10 in the past few weeks (I don't watch twitch that often but I do enjoy it occasionally).

My computer is a Dell XPS17 i7 2760 8gb ram GT 555M

Thanks to anyone who is taking the time to help.

I was half asleep, just noticed the sound loop. Tried to read the bsod while it created the dump in my half dead state, but i'm not entirely sure i got the right code. I fished it out of the event log that this was the code provided. This is the first bsod i've ever had with this system which is ~2 years old. And i've not had a single issue since i uninstalled windows 10 ~2 months ago.

So i'm not even sure there is a problem, might've been a fluke. Ideas ?

I recently have been trying to stream on twitch, and it works for like 30 minutes-1 hour then my computer crashes.. Any help would be greatly appreciated, really want to start streaming seriously and on a schedule but can't due to this unfortunate issue that frequently occurs. I have provided my system specs on my profile under the tab "System Spec" if you need to see my setup. I will provide a screenshot of my recent crashes, and will provide them here, but I recommend looking at the screenshot as it provides a lot more information regarding the crashes. The Bug Check String that says the reason of the crashes are: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_READONLY_MEMORY.

Let's start with my PC specs:

MOBO: Dell 0ry007
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 @ 3.16 GHz
GPU: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 750 TI OC 2 Gb
RAM: 4x1 Gb of Geil DDR2-800
Storage: 1x WD Black 500GB and 1x Kingston SSDNOW V300 120 Gb
PSU: Antec Basiq 450W

So i made quite a bit of troubleshooting.

First i tried my RAM memory sticks to see if they are faulty.I tested them with Windows Memory Diagnostic first and got no problems, then I tried MemTest 86 (ran for 2 hours) and i got the same result: No problems.

Then I checked my SSD (on that i have the OS) with chkdsk /f - got 0 errors ,then tried sfc /scannow - got 0 problems, and then tried CrystalDisk - got a 100% healthy SSD and a Good HDD

Then I thought my PSU fails (at that moment i had the original ACbel 300 W) and changed with this Antec Basiq 450 W.

Then I tried the GPU and here are some question marks (??????????).I ran furmark 5 times (4 times ran for 30 minutes and 1 time for 1 hour) with Xtreme Burn-In setting, 8xMSAA and max resolution (1440x900) and the card run at 62C average temperature and never crashed ,just the fans got louder,which is normal.But here is the thing sometimes i get BSOD's caused by dxgmms1.sys and nvlddmkm.sys ,so DirectX and Nvidia Driver.

Tested the CPU with prime 95 and nothing happened also tested with Furmark -CPU Burn and nothing happened aswell but the temperature was 65-68C which is a bit HOT but the CPU can handle it.

Hi I was hoping someone could help me in regards to a BSOD problem with Twitch.tv specifically I have been watching this stream Twitch , since I started watching yesterday I have gotten 4 BSOD , I use to have an issue with seemingly random BSOD in the past however I replaced my Hard-drive which had given up the ghost and I had not gotten one blue screen since then , until I watched the stream , and I still have yet to experience a BSOD when not watching Twitch.tv I suspect a driver might be a fault but tbh I think im out of my depth so I would really love any help =)

What I have done.
Uninstalled Avast Antivirus
Updated windows
Run windows ram test , no errors

Hi, well its not realy a BSOD, BUT A FREEZE

Hellow there, after a long time of ignoring this problem, i'm so done with it and tired of it, so here we go, ill try to explane it.

My Problem:
When i am playing a game like Hearthstone or World of warcraft on my Right monitor, and watching a stream/youtube vid on my left screen, suddenly my computer freezes. Afther that i need to manualy shut down my computer (pushing the off button) and reboot it.

The last 3 times it happened i was Playing Hearthstone and World of Warcraft.
Just a few moments ago it also happens when i was watching a youtube vid on my left screen (21inch) and watching my facebook on my right screen (24inch)


The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

So recently, I've noticed some minor freezes while watching streams, it only happens once, then it stops.
Unfortunately, today, my computer completely froze and I got a BSOD error, with the following message:


So I went to the reliability monitor and it shows 4 Hardware Errors (see image below), then the system crashes unexpectedly.

After doing some research, I found that the parameter 1 is 0xA which translates to:

"An invalid attempt to use a pinned allocation was made."

Here's the link of the error message that I got:

My pc after 2 months of stability started crashing with no stop, mostly when i was watching Dota 2 streams. I had similar problems back then which a AMD update solved.

It's a Windows 7 64bit 5 month old rig. I have an OEM version of Windows, installed when the pc was built.

Right now after one hour of crashing it runs smoothly. I updated it (many Framework updates) and re-installed Drivers. The error report attached is the same before and after the updates/re-install.

Thank you really much for the support.

I blue-screen while watching Twitch.tv live-streams, or when I leave the computer unattended for a length of time. I (think) I have installed and updated all of my drivers.

I have ran stress tests on my CPU, RAM, and GPU with Prime95(4 hours passed on small-large-blend), Furmark(4 hours passed), and Memtest(passed for 48 hours). All having good temp readings.

I also get a LOT of errors and failed installs on my windows updates. And I have tried re-installing windows several times. I come here on a last leg.

I am Quite computer savvy(A+, Net+, and win 7 cert), but this has thrown me in a circle.

Any and all help will be welcome.
I have uploaded my dump files.

A:BSOD watching livestreams on Twitch.tv, error 0x00000124

Hi p00ned4dis, welcome .

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress. - H2SO4

The bug checks are consistent on failing to read from the L1 cache,
which more often than not spells a faulty CPU other possibilities are the motherboard / PSU.
Has anything changed / happened before you started getting the bug checks?
Since you already tested the hardware, do you have another system you can test with?

I am interested in the Voltage readings;
Download HWinfo and post a Screenshot of the sensors window, one at idle and another while putting load on the PC using Prime95 for the CPU side and Furmark for the GPU.Before running Prime95 make sure to enable Round-off checking (see 1st post under the tutorial).

What is the make, model and age of your PSU?
Fill out this form and post back the result:
Power Supply Calculator
Good practice, open up the case and re-seat all types of connection.
Motherboard 24-pin.
Motherboard 4/8-pin (CPU).
Re-seat the RAM.
Re-seat the GPU.
Make sure that every slot / cable head is free of dust or other obstruction.

Hello, this is my first post, and I created this account today because I have been having a frustratingly enormous amount of BSODing happening to my computer lately. This has been going on for a period of about a couple weeks now, with an increasing frequency as time goes on. The problem is that I cannot figure out exactly what causes them because I get different error messages almost every time when my computer BSODs.

Here's a list of them with how common they reoccur for each time I get a BSOD:
2. PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (Npfs.SYS), also (dxgkrnl.sys) - (very common)
3. IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - (not as common)
4. DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (Wdf01000.sys) - (not as common)
5. SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (win32kfull.sys) - (not very common)
6. BAD_POOL_CALLER - (only happened once)
7. APC_INDEX_MISMATCH - (only happened once)

I have pinpointed the triggers of these BSODs to activities such as:
1. Playing games, particularly multiplayer, like: CS:GO, H1Z1, The Culling. When this happens, either my computer will BSOD directly from my game, or my game will crash me to my desktop, and then my PC eventually BSODs if I persist to play the games.
2. Watching Twitch.tv. When this happens, Google Chrome will display the "aw snap" page and all of my pages in Chrome will crash, but not Chrome itself, and then I will almost always immediately get a BSOD after a few seconds of that screen appearing.
-I can play games like Dark... Read more

I've been suffering BSoDs relatively frequently for a while now, in my perception mostly when watching streamed flash video such as from YouTube or Twitch.tv.
Multiple system wipes/fresh installations have not resolved the issue.
RAM replacement seemed to allow me to catch a break at first, but BSoDs returned after few days of calm and I suffered 3 of them during the last 2 days. Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostics and MemTest (ran multiple copies simultaneously for 8 hours) returned no errors.

According to the dump files, BSoDs were caused by a combination of ntoskrnl.exe and dxgmms1.sys.
Again, in my imagination most of them they seem to coincide with streaming flash video via Twitch.tv, which I watch using multiple instances of Google Chrome and Firefox. Although that might be completely unrelated.

As a layman, I'm puzzled, and thus turn to you for your insight and help.

A:Frequent BSoD for ntoskrnl.exe, dxgmms1.sys when watching yt, twitch

Please start by removing the following programs from your computer:

Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite
Once Daemon tools is gone please download and run this tool:

DuplexSecure - Downloads

When the tool runs if the uninstall button is grayed out your done and can close the window. If it is not please click it and allow the tool to do its job. DO NOT click the install button it will install a driver known to cause BSODs.

Also uninstall this program it is likely doing more harm than good:

Start Menu\Programs\TuneUp Utilities 2013
Next please update the following drivers thaey are potentialy problimatic:

In addition to title info, my computer only crashes while watching the stream and gaming at the same time. If I do either independently I don't crash ever it seems like. Same for gaming and streaming my game from Xsplit or FFSplit. Since I can do either independently it isn't really a pressing issue, but one I would really like to get sorted out as this indicates something is wrong with my computer. This is my first post so please let me know if I compiled the dump file incorrectly. Thank you in advance!

I updated my hardware(New CPU, GPU, and Motherboard) recently this past Wednesday and after everything is installed and running it seems to run fine. I attempted some Overclocking of my CPU and got my first BSOD(Unfortunately Windows did not save the dump file of this event) so I stopped and changed it back to normal thinking that caused it. The first BSOD happened while I was watching a stream on Twitch tv and it happened again a second time later while I was watching a Twitch stream. I have included my zip file with current information. Could it have something to with my GPU drivers since it happened during the same type of situation? I have the most recent driver installed 320.18 installed.

First BSOD was 0x0000003b error

It does seem that the graphics card driver is a possible cause at the moment, have you tried rolling back to the older WHQL driver? I do feel that the driver being blamed, could be due to the alterations made to the registry by the registry cleaner you have installed.

A brief description on what I was doing during the time of when the kernel-power event 41 happened. Just booted the pc up and began to browse the net and have twitch.tv on as I was catching up on emails. Then suddenly pc just rebooted itself.

So far i have completed;

Virus scan - no virus detected
Malware scan - no malware detected
Ram test - pass
Checked the cpu and gpu temperature on idle and load (its not overheating)
PC is NOT OC'd
Checked the PSU fan to see if its running. (working fine)

Im confused to why my PC has rebooted itself in the space of 5 times in the space of 6-7 hours. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've been having BSOD issues with my computer for months now.
I only BSOD when doing something, Watching a stream or playing a game, The computer can IDLE for 3 days straight and not BSOD. Something to add, Whenever I play games such as Starcraft 2, World of warcraft, Arma 2, THey will randomly just crash to desktop, ANd I noticed that the two might be related.

I had microsoft take a look at my machine, They went into my driver verifier and according to him he "Put my computer on manual" Basically drivers weren't always just on, When he did that I was able to play 2 days straight without a BSOD

However I was loosing performance HARD, So I reverted the settings and BSOD within an hour.

Its not an over heating issue as I even tried opening the case and putting a fan next to it, I keep track of my temps and nothing ever gets to a scary point. I've updated any drivers needed.

I just can't figure out why I keep crashing/BSOD'ing.

I also Have 2 computer profiles and both BSOD/Crash

Computer Specs:

Win7 Home Pre
AMD Quad Core

GPU: Nvidia 660

yesterday I removed my old motherboard and CPU to replace it with my new GA-Z77-D3H motherboard and a intel core i5-3570K. Everything seemed to be fine, Windows 7 correctly identified the new motherboard and installed the drivers. I also installed all the drivers from the cd that came with the new motheboard.

Now today I wanted to watch a stream, when suddenly the BSOD appears and the pc restarted a few seconds after the bluescreen. I was surprised but thought it would possibly be just a random malfunction. After the restart, my catalyst-control-center said it couldn't find my ATi 7950, so I reinstalled the 13.4 CCC. Everything was fine after another restart.

But since then, everytime I try to watch a stream, the BSOD reappears and my pc restarts. I already took a look at the dump files with the windows sdk debugger, which gave my something like this:

A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the

I get random 0x0[...]0124 bsod when gaming or watching youtube/twitch. This started after I upgraded to windows 10 (I also bought a new GPU, but had no issue for a month before I started getting theses BSOD), but I tried downgrading to windows 7 to no avail (fresh install). If anyone has any clue on what the error is with the attached dump file, feel free to help me.

What I know the problem is not:
-Temperature (cpu at 50 and gpu at 80 under load)
-Overclocking (no overclocking done)
-Ram (ran memtest)
-Hard drive (tried on an HDD and SSD that had no problems in the past and got BSOD on both)

Thanks for the help in advance!

Hey guys,

I've been having BSOD's once to twice a week since I upgraded to Windows 10 around 10 months ago. I also installed a new CPU cooler (Kraken x61) at the same time so it's hard to isolate it to windows 10. My PC also freezes sometimes too and I have to restart, it's not heat related though as my processor never really goes above 40 degrees Celsius.

The BSOD's and screen freezes have started happening way more frequently recently and WhoCrashed ​always tells me it's likely to do with a driver. I've tested all my drivers on many occasions and windows device manager tells me everything is up to date. The drivers AMD say are for Windows 10 for my motherboard (Sabertooth 990FX) are the same as the windows 7 drivers, so maybe my motherboard is the issue.

The common BSOD's I get:


A common example of my most frequent BSOD:

First of all, hello! I am new to the forums, and new to trying to fix a computer I built

I am not totally dumb, but I am having a really hard time with this PC pretty much since I built it. I have had a bunch of people I thought were good with computers (and probably really are) look at it and no one has really been able to get the problems to go away. One of the issues I had was a variety of BSOD errors, apparently my PC was running HOT for a while and now with a new water cooling system in place it is fine, but I am still getting BSOD errors. The most recent one was 0x00000050.

I ran the program the forums suggested and have attached the zipped files. If anyone out there is smarter than me and can help me through this I would be insanely grateful. I have no problems removing/re-installing hardware or running w/e programs etc. I am just at my wits end, and short of buying a whole new computer I no longer know what to do

Thank you in advance to anyone who is willing and able to help!

A:BSOD watching Twitch and updating Starcraft 2 error 0x00000050

Hmm, I'm seeing a lot of issues with Windows files and services either being corrupted or the memory they're working with is being corrupted.

How hot was the system running before you installed a new cooler? There's a possibility that permanent damage has been inflicted on one or more computer components due to the intense heat.

I reckon we do a few hardware tests:

RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test; Blend; overnight (9+ hours)
Drives: Seatools - All basic tests aside from the Fix all, Long generic or the advanced ones. Also provide us a screenshot of CrystalDiskInfo output.

All of these are included in the UBCD if you prefer a Live CD environment (which is the best environment to test hardware on). Note that Prime95 currently does not work on the latest version of UBCD due to a bug. Also, please provide us temps/voltages using HWInfo with Sensors only option checked. Log two 30-minute instances: one for idle, and one for high load. If you can get the system to crash during high load logging, that's even better. Last, make sure that when running Prime95 that you check temps during first 30minutes or so to see if temps are stable. Prime95 runs very hot so be sure your cooling can handle it before letting it run extensively.

You may also want to just try reinstalling Windows (after you do the hardware tests). There's the possibility Windows didn't install all that well, and there's tons of issues popping up as a result.

A few times a week, BSODs occur while I'm watching online videos or streams. The BSODs are always related to ntoskrnl.exe or other system files (I checked with WhoCrashed and BlueScreenView). I have to mention that I keep all drivers updated (apart from an AHCI driver that causes HDD clicks on certain Samsung drives, documented here: HDD click (excessive load-unload cycles) | Intel Communities).

8GB of RAM (Installed a few months ago)

I bought a Full Retail version of Windows 7 64Bit Home Premium to replace my Windows 7 Ultimate 32Bit OEM version. The idea was to install more RAM and make use of it in playing games.

The games I play are Starcraft 2, Dota 2, The Secret World & Age of Conan MMO. Somewhere after the new windows installation and the RAM installation ... Blue Screens started to occur frequently during gaming.

I tried testing Memory with memtest and Memory Diagnostics with good passes (not sure if I ran it long enough). I considered the upgrade of my Nvidia GPU driver version to be a possible cause switched from 296.10 to the current 300 version.

Lastly I'm thinking overheating hardware could be a cause. In any case I decided to take a shot and post my Laptop woes here. I hope I've done the thread correctly and attached the proper zip files as instructed.

It seems I've shot myself in the foot by trying to upgrade my laptop for better gaming ... only to result in Blue Screen issues. I've had differet Stop codes but the most frequent one I noticed is 0x000124 code.

Hope I've provided enough information and hope to hear some feedback. Thanks.

Hello Zendo and welcome to Sevenforums.

BSOD Analyse

Good job on your own troubleshooting, here's a few things just to get clear-Memtest86+ should run 7 or 8 passes. For detailed troubleshooting, you should only scan one stick of RAM, and do it in one slot. Then change the slot, and scan it once again. Once the stick has been through all the slots, proceed to your next stick.
Make sure automatic overclocking isn't enabled. You can take a quick look at your BIOS settings for instance.

Graphic Driver

Your Graphic Driver is pointed out to be one of the causes. This can be caused by that left-over files are being generated during Graphic Driver installs. To make a clean install of your Graphic Driver, there's a little procedure.

i) Make your way to Nvidia Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
ii) Uninstall the one you currently have and all its extensions
iii) Download Driver Sweeper
iv) Get to safe mode (without network) and search for Driver Sweeper in your
v) Select all the Nvidia components and analyse them
vi) Clean them, head into Windows without internet and download the driver

Also do a quick blow in your GPU fan.


You have had some issues with your Processor Cache, a problem related to your Intel CPU. First of all I'd suggest you to make sure that your CPU is connected all the way in. Open your case, plug out the fan, give the CPU and the fan a blow, and install everything back in. Also make sure that your fan is connected all the way in, and isn't in any way l... Read more

Recently I have been suffering from a random sporadic amount of bsod. It usually happens right after I finished a game or just when I am about to start one. During my time playing a MMO it sometimes just happens randomly with no real indication something is going to happen.

What I managed to catch during my bsod was something along the lines of IRLQ_Not_Less_or_Equal I believe.

I have been wondering what the issue is. If it's hardware related or due to software not being compatible with each other.

Thank you in advance for all the help

Is the firmware for your SSD up-to-date?

Check for one and see if the stability returns.

If you are overclocking any hardware, STOP. Reset any changed values back to default.

Start Menu\Programs\MSI Afterburner ErikEkkel-PC\ErikEkkel:Start Menu\Programs\MSI Afterburner ErikEkkel-PC\ErikEkkel

This is overclocking software and can lead to system instability and BSOD's. Please reset all components to their stock speeds and then remove the software.

Daemon Tools/Alcohol %

Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite Public:Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite Public
Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although we 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): DuplexSecure - FAQ

As an alternative, many people recommend the use of Total Mounter or Magic ISO

I have the following problem with some nasty BSODs which mostly appear while starting a video/stream with Flash player. With the WhoCrashed Tool I got the following source of error, which indicates the grafic cards driver.

On Sun 17.01.2016 10:27:01 GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\011716-6286-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: atikmdag.sys (atikmdag+0x277CE)
Bugcheck code: 0xA0000001 (0x5, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0)
file path: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\atikmdag.sys
product: ATI Radeon Family
company: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
description: ATI Radeon Kernel Mode Driver
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: atikmdag.sys (ATI Radeon Kernel Mode Driver, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.).
Google query: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. CUSTOM_ERROR

Since I am no tech guru, I do not really know what to do or where I can install the new drivers. I have also attached a zip file with the necessary information.
If you could help me in this regard on how I should proceed to clear these errors, I would be very delighted.

Best regards.
