Hey… So I use my computer every day, and it is very important to me. After booting up my PC today, it has started encountering multiple BSODs, with a few different stop codes…
My specs are as follows:
Asus Crosshair V Formula-z motherboard
AMD FX-8350 @ 4.5GHz CPU
Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming GPU
128Gb SSD for OS and 3 TB mass storage
Windows 10 Home OS
I have had this computer for 3 or 4 years now and I haven’t had any issues with it recently.
I cannot remember adding any new hardware or software in the last few days, other than downloading VR chat on steam a few days ago.
Today I woke up and turned on my computer like normal, my 3 monitors booted up, and during the windows boot screen I got a BSOD with stop code VIDEO_MEMORY_MANAGEMENT_INTERNAL
I took note of the stop code and let the pc restart. This time it booted to the desktop just fine, but after about 10 minutes of just browsing the web, I got another BSOD with stop code SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
At this point I started looking up the stop codes and finding potential fixes. The first thing I tried was to update my graphics driver with Geforce Experience, and towards the end of the installation process for the driver, I got another BSOD. I could not see the stop code on this one, because the screen was warped.
I booted back to the desktop, and tried to see if my driver was installed correctly. Everything seemed okay, so I opened a browser window and went to make dinner. The computer was up for about 20 minutes before crashing again while I was gone, so I don’t know the stop code.
Another 40 minutes later, while still only browsing the web, watching youtube, I got another SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION BSOD.
This time I booted back up, and tried running chkdsk and sfc /scannow, neither of which found any errors.
My next course of action was to update windows, so after freeing up space on my ssd, I downloaded and began to install Windows update “Feature update to Windows 10, version 1709”. After “preparing to install updates”, I allowed the computer to restart to install. By this point, the PC had been on for ~45 minutes without a crash.
During the update process, I got another BSOD, this time with the stop code EXFAT_FILE_SYSTEM…
The computer recovered the installation on it’s own and booted to desktop. I immediately opened up my browser to come write this thread and once I started typing my computer froze, and then BSOD again with stop code CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT…
After another restart I made it here to write this thread… I’m not sure how to access the dump files for the crashes but I know they can be very helpful. If someone could help me out by telling me how I can provide you with the dump files, or help me in any other way I would greatly appreciate it!
