    Default Bsods every few days

    I've been finely tuning my overclock for a while now, but despite being stable in every test I can throw at it, I'm suffering from the occasional lock up/bsod every few days.

    The problem I am having is I can't seem to repeat it, there's no pattern to when it happens or even the error in the dump file. Most recently whocrashed quoted it was an error copying referenced memory, but before it's also listed possible causes as driver errors or even faults with hardware.Most point to the driver kernel ntoskernel.exe.

    I just wondered, has anyone else come across undetectable errors like this and how have they troubleshooted them?

    I decided to post this under memory, but only because I suspect this is most likely the cause.I'm not 100% though.

    Could be memory voltage, Bad sectors on hard drive, Driver issues or just a ever so slightly unstable OC. Return everything to stock and see if you still have the problem. If no then its related to the OC and voltages. If yes then you have a driver/software or hardware failure. Sure you can figure it out for here.

    So just process of elimination again?

    It's going to take a long time considering it happens every few days!

    Yes sir. Intermittent problems are always a pain in the arse. Everytime you think you figured it out it will show up again. First and most helpful thing is to remove possible varibles. Like any OC. Once you are at stock you have a foundation to start with and the OC wont be in the back of your mind the whole time. So reset to stock and start from them. Do all you windows updates. Make sure you have latest chipset drivers. give it a few days of normal usage and see what happens.

    I have had one for weeks and its intermittent as well, my monitor goes black computer stays on but no picture no nothing I changed cables that was not it.
    nothing over heating, force a reboot and its back no error code no nothing it drives me crazy and sometimes it don't show up for days or weeks

    I think my next step will be to switch monitors and if it goes away I will RMA this new Asus 24" I purchased a few months back. and if it comes back
    maybe try switching my card out with spare video card I have in my test bench and see if that fixes it.

    I hate it when the reasons can be so meany

    Yours definitely sounds like a memory issue if you take it back to stock setting does it go away?
    Also make sure you have the latest bios update

    Vinman that is a sync issue. If u are using hdmi make sure you are using the newest spec cables. Think it's 1.4 something or other. Does pc does to sleep or just turn monitor of after it sits?

    The power to the monitor stays on! screen goes black and stays that way
    I tried both HDMI and the display port it happens on both connections.

    Wow. So it loses sync while u r using it? Or after trying to wake up from it sitting? Chances are slim it's gpu. More then likely monitor.

    I had pretty much the same problem...it was my system SSD that was corrupted. At least the BSOD's stopped after I unplugged it and installed windows on a different SSD.

    Only days? More like weeks!! I'm back at stock settings now and today the system has been fine gaming. I'll give it a week of no bsods until I deem it stable then I'll set my overclock back but keep the ram at stock settings.

    You may have a point about the ssd although I only have mechanical drives, they are pretty old and I have to use the Microsoft ahci driver because there's a conflict between the amd one and one of my hdds.

    It does make you wonder, because troubleshooting overclocking is all relative in one way or another. I heard you can't overclock the blck frequency without using AMD ahci drivers because it results in no os found errors. I tested this and so it was, I couldn't boot even at 105mhz.

    So just because I find this doesn't happen at stock doesn't necessarily mean it's not a driver problem when overclocked.

    Again the same can be said about memory timings. They may be stable at a lower/higher nb frequency and or/voltage, but when you start to overclock the cpu and nb frequency it may be too much stress on the imc!

    It's ironic I have this problem now because the last amd system I put together also had a problem with ahci.

    One things for sure now, I wish I could have afforded a haswel/ivy system instead

    Make sure your drive sleep mode is correct, I changed mine to the wrong one and it caused my SSD to randomly drop causing windows to BSOD and not create a dump file because the drive dropped completely and never recovered. Not sure if this would be a problem with mech drives though...

    Not sure about drive sleep mode. I think my disks are set to turn off after 20 mins of inactivity but that's it. I did turn off write caching when overclocking but that's back on again now.

    From my experience you soon find out if you have a disk problem because Windows and the smart diagnosis built in are pretty good. Perhaps I should switch out this incompatible drive for testing.
