Hello!

 

So for starters, I'll explain my situation here.

 

A couple weeks back, I found my SSD was dying. My Windows was hanging, took ages to format and would crash at random. Luckily, I had a couple other SSD's I installed a brand new Windows 10 onto and carried on.

 

However, I started having some issues with my OS, where it would start randomly freezing to a halt - forcing me to reboot - and having some BSoD's.

These BSoD's ranged from IRQL faults because of my OC (which I have reverted for now), Memory Management and kernel errors.

 

I have, as I stated above, taken my OC off, and I'm now running complete stock settings, but I'm still getting these kernel errors. I have done a driver verifier which rooted out a driver from Logitech Gaming Software - I have deactivated the driver associated with the crash - but I'm still bluescreening.

 

I am out of options, and therefore I am posting here!

I will try to do a Memtest86 after posting this, and see where that gets me, but I'll post my minidumps from the Sysnative program I downloaded.

 

 

However, the Perfmon Report is impossible for me to post, I am afraid, as it doesn't finish. The bar just keeps on going and never stops, and an "sfc /scannow" says that everything is as it should be.

Obviously they're not, but I don't know how to fix that.

 

So at the very least, here is my Sysnative Program zip.

 

I'll update this post with the Memtest86 results when they're done, and hopefully some of you helpful people out there can help me with this. :)

 

Specs:

Win10 Pro, brand new install

x64

OEM

 

Parts range from a year (MoBo, RAM, GPU), rest is 3 years-ish old.

 

i7 5820k

ASUS NVidia 980Ti

ASUS X99-Deluxe, 3301 Bios

1000W Corsair PSU

Your UEFI/BIOS (version 3301) dates from 2016.  Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system.  This is just in case there has been a more recent update.
FYI - W8 and W10 communicate more with the UEFI/BIOS than previous versions of Windows, so it's important to ensure that the UEFI/BIOS is kept up to date (and that outdated UEFI/BIOS' may be the cause of some compatibility issues).

Although you appear to have a reasonable number of Windows Update hotfixes for this version of your OS, please double check for any new Windows Updates.  It only takes one update to cause a problem, so it's essential that you have all of them.  The actual number is not important.  Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.

You have 4 hard drives.  What is the age of your Corsair PSU?

 

These devices have problems in Device Manager:

 

Nettverkskontroller    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_43A0&SUBSYS_86591043&REV_03\6&1BEE340&0&001000E3    The drivers for this device are not installed.
Logitech Gaming Virtual Bus Enumerator    ROOT\SYSTEM\0001    This device is working properly.

The first device is a Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adapter  - please download/install the drivers for this device from the manufacturer's support website for your system

Please uninstall the Logitech software (as it was previously associated with BSOD's when you ran Driver Verifier) and physically remove the Logitech devices from your system.

 

5 of the last 8 memory dumps point to a problem with the disk hardware.

Please run these free hardware diagostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

Start with the hard drive diagnostics on all hard drives. 

Please finish all the tests and let us know the results.

 

Disconnect all of the SSD's (other than the boot SSD) and leave them disconnected while we're troubleshooting.

 

Should the system continue to BSOD, then you'll have to find a good drive to test the system with.

I would suggest a regular hard drive - and install Windows on it without activating it (disconnecting the boot SSD).

You'll have 30 days to test it before it needs to be activated - and that should be long enough for you to test it out.

Okay, so I did Memtest86 for 2 passes, and I got no errors! At least my RAM is alright.

 

I have 4 harddrives, yes. 2 HDD's and 2 SSD's + one SSD not installed yet.

My PSU was bought together with most of my older parts, in the beginning of July 2014.

 

 

There is one newer BIOS version for me, I will go install that after the HDD diagnostics, going to fully test the 2 HDD's that I have.

As for the hotfixes, Windows Updater tells me there are no more updates to download, but I'll take a look and see.

 

Now, if the HDD doesn't produce any errors, where does that put me?

Is it possible that the faulty LGS driver made my HDD go crazy?

 

EDIT: Alright, just did a full HDD scan with SeaTools, and all of the tests return negatives. My harddisks pass every test. What do I do now? :|

 

UPDATE: I tried to use the CHKDSK command in an elevated command prompt, and I wonder. How accurate is this on SSD's?

I just tried to do a CHKDSK-command on my C: drive, which is the SSD I use for my OS, and I got this.

 

C:\Windows\system32>chkdsk C:
The type of the file system is NTFS.

SSD's don't have any decent diagnostics (IMO).  That means that to test them, you have to try another drive in their place (either a new one, or one that's been tested and passed on another system).

 

CHKDSK does not test the hard drive.  It tests the file system on the hard drive.

CHKDSK did not fix your issues as it was run in Read Only mode.

 

IN addition to the hard drive/SSD, it could also be the data cables, the power cables, the storage controller, or other features on the system that are to blame.

Ruling out the hard drives/SSD's is only the first step.

 

What LGS driver are you referring to?  It's possible for drivers to cause problems with other drivers - but not to the degree that we see here.

 

I would suggest disconnecting ALL drives (HDD/SSD), then installing a new HDD and put W10 on it without activating.
Run it for a couple of days and see what happens.

Alright, but would you say that CHKDSK is unreliable when it comes to SSD's/HDD's in general, or just that it doesn't diagnose the problem detailed enough?

I could try to take it out and install on a different drive I have lying around. The SSD is starting to get kind of old as well, bought it in 2014. 3 years warranty, so if there's a problem, I want to be able to cash in on the warranty.

 

I first encountered these problems when I installed the newest LGS version, but if that's just a coincidence or not, I have no idea.

I'm referring to a driver called LgBusEnum.sys, it made me BSoD before POST when I did Driver Verification. Permanently uninstalled LGS meanwhile I troubleshoot this problem.

 

Would it be possible for me to test the SSD by taking it out of my PC, hook it up to a 2.5" bay and test it on my laptop with a fresh install of Windows there? Want to try to solve this without crippling my ability to use my desktop while I fix this.

CHKDSK is not able to diagnose SSD's or HDD's

It is merely a tool to check the file system - NOT the drive!

 

I'm not familiar with making Windows run from a USB

If you can do it, go ahead and try it.  That way you'll rule out everything but the SSD (and the WIndows installation).

Alright, so it's been 2 whole days now, and my PC has been running 24 hours a day without a single hitch.

Seems like the SSD was the culprit, and I'm going to request a warranty replacement by Samsung.

 

 

Thanks for the help, Usasma!

Having you point out the harddisk errors really helped narrow the search down!  :clapping:  :clapping:

Alright, I may have been rash. It fixed a lot of my problems, but I just had my PC freeze to death.

 

I downloaded CrystalDisk and HDTune and did some checking. On ONE disk, I have a couple things. First off, the disk says it's been running for 41.170 hours. So it's pretty old. Second off, I have a Calibration Retry Count error, that counts 1. There's also an Interface CRC Error Count for 1.

 

I googled around a bit, and it says CRC errors can be wiring, can be the disk. But all of my disks pass the long tests I throw at it, and everything seems fine from a diagnostic point of view.

 

My question is, can it just be that the disk is really old and worn out, that it's getting these CRC errors because of an interface fault on the disk itself?

Is there a way for me to test this? This is the first freeze I've had since I thought I fixed this problem, and I haven't really installed much on the disk yet either.

SMART attributes are just predictors - they are not diagnostics.
AFAIK, there are no reliable diagnostics for SSD's

The only reliable test that I know of is to try another (known good) drive to see if that fixes the problem.

 

Try another disk (either HDD or SSD) and see if that helps.

If it does, then the old SSD was the problem.

If it doesn't, then the problem lies elsewhere.

It's not from the SSD, it's from one of my HDD's.

If it's a hard drive (and not an SSD), run the Seatools test here:  http://www.carrona.org/hddiag.html

Run the long/extended test

Already did, did two passes on every HDD, and they all passed without any errors. This is truly stumping me.

If the system is still crashing, please zip up and upload the contents of the C:\Windows\Mindump folder

If unable to zip it there, copy it to your Desktop and zip it up there.

There are no logs, since it didn't hard-crash, it just froze and locked up slowly until nothing worked.

Started with my browser not wanting to load in a site - just constant loading, then the task-bar didn't function and slowly everything just locked up. I could freely move my mouse, but had to force the PC to shut down by holding the power button.

It's time to try another hard drive.

If you don't have one that you can try - purchase one from a place that you can return it if it's not needed (for your money back)
