Re: [WIN7] BSOD and the Minidump... how to analyze it?

The Event Viewer says Source: Kernel Power EventID: 41 Level: Critical

As far as other hard drives, it's the same cluster of 1 and 1.5 TB hdd's (SATA's) that I'd used prior to upgrading the CPU and C Drive (which I used a Solid State for my OS)

No RAID - all individual hdd's and all internal and all fairly new...

20 minutes before the BSOD there was a warning in the event viewer saying Event 19, WHEA Logger and the following text in the details section, "A corrected hardware error has occurred"
Reported by Component: Processor Core
Error Source: Corrected Machine Check
Error Type: Internal Parity Error

I went back over the last bunch of *Critical* events and ALWAYS, one second before each crash, it was the same 'Information' event that said "File System Filter 'aswSnx' being successfully loaded with the Filter Manager"...

I've uninstalled Avast! and will again run my system through some video editing...

I think that would be an interesting step to see if the BSOD appears. If not that's a good sign to maybe trial your removal of Avast for a day or so after to be sure it is in fact something to do with Avast. If it turns out Avast is the culprit, I'm sure their support team will be able to help you resolve the issue.

Remember that cool hidden "Graffiti Wall" here on BBR? After the name change I became the "owner", so to speak as it became: Dustyn's Wall »[Serious] RIP

What kind of motherboard?

Some mbs automatically ramp up/overclock under heavy loads causing memory type of errors.

edit: Oh its a Asus P8Z77-V DELUXE

Well - it was nice while it lasted but I just had another BSOD - even after uninstalling Avast! antivirus... the Event Viewer has nothing of interest showing just before the crash...

He has a Marvell SATA controller that's used for his SSD. I said in an IM to MikeC578 See Profile that Marvell drivers are crappy drivers, buggy like none other. It would be best to get his SSD on one of the Intel-based SATA controller ports as versus the Marvell ports.

Also, try in the BIOS "Load BIOS Default Settings" to reverse any potential automatic overclocking of the processor.

You were right... the SSD (identified as a SCSI disk in the BIOS) was indeed plugged into one of the Marvell ports. I switched it to one of the Intell ports, reset the BIOS to default settings (it was only overclocked 3%) and have been working away on video, rendering, etc - no BSOD yet... keeping my friggin' fingers crossed

You will also find that the Intel SSD Toolkit will now function as it should. TRIM support will also work properly as well.
