Hi,

I've been getting regular BSOD's on my pc, was thinking about posting here but then it cleared up. Until today. Now it's not even starting up, no signal to the monitor or anything.

BSOD codes from before were the following (oldest to most recent):

 

DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION

 

KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

 

PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGED AREA

 

Couldn't be loaded properly because a critical system driver is missing or contained errors:

File: \windows\system32\drivers\Wdf01000.sys

Error Code: 0xxc0000221

 

MEMORY MANAGEMENT

 

SYSTEM SERVICE EXCEPTION

 

KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED

 

PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGED AREA

 

A friend thinks its probably the RAM, so if people here think it's a good idea I might go and get a stick to swap in to see if that helps? Can't even load get a monitor signal with a boot device at the moment, hence no files attached to this post.

 

Win 10, 650W power supply, i5, msi krait motherboard, 16gb Ram (Kingston I think), gtx 1070.

 

Any help much appreciated!!

Start with these bootable diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html

Probably ram, motherboard or power supply. If nothing happens when you press the power switch, probably the ps.

Thanks Allan and John!
I'll look into the bootable diagnostics tomorrow, and perhaps get some ram to swap in as well to see if that works. It's powering up successfully so hoping its not the power supply.
I'll keep this thread posted with updates.

Multiple and varied bsod's (such as yours) are usually a major hardware failure. In my experience usually ps or mobo. If it's booting properly my guess is mobo, but it's very difficult to diagnose a motherboard or cpu failure from a distance ;)

So today I reset the cmos and and changed the ram configuration - when putting them in one at a time found one didnt work and other does, so I'm hoping that's the problem - with the (maybe) faulty stick out I've managed to reinstall windows and everything is working ok.

Is there a way I can check the stick of ram to confirm that it's dodgy? (And by extension that hopefully nothing else is dodgy)?

The bootable diagnostics that I mentioned ( http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html ) include a memory test that you can use to test the memory sticks.

THere's also some more free hardware diagnostics here:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

If it works with one stick, that's likely your problem (the other one is bad).
