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

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

I've uninstalled Avast! and have been working feverishly on a video roject - lots of editing and rendering - and no BSOD...

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.

To auggy and trparky - thanx guys for the troubleshooting... haven't had a bsod since I switched the sata cable to the intell port and was able to optimize and 'defrag' the ssd thru toolkit... still keeping my fingers crossed tho and will report back in a couple of days...
