  1. I just built (2 months ago) a brand new high end computer and I keep getting blue screen crashes. They usually happen pretty soon after I log on to my computer but not always. I have tested memory with memtest and it didn't return any errors. Please help! I have uploaded several of my latest minidump files.

    Are you over-clocking this computer? Looks like a bios setting problem

    No, I'm not overclocking. I just disabled intel turboboost in the BIOS to see if that changed anything. So far so good, but I haven't been using it for more than 10 minutes. Is it possible to see what component is causing the problem?

    All 6 minidumps are the same:
    CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION
    Ntoskrnl.exe

    How is the hard drive configured? IDE,AHCI or RAID? Any SSD devices?

    AHCI and yes Windows is installed on an OCZ SSD with trim enabled in Windows.

    SSD's can cause this type of general instability. What's the motherboards make and model? Have you checked for a bios update?

    MSI Z77MA-G45 I haven't checked for a BIOS update but that is a good idea, I will now.

    Thanks, and yep and I am loving it so far. Ok I updated the BIOS so we will see if that fixes it.

    Hey, so my computer has been running smoothly since I last posted but just a couple minutes ago it gave me a BSOD. I restarted it and within minuted it did it again, so I restarted it again only this time when I started it it said it needed to check the C drive for errors (See pictures). It did that then restarted itself and made me boot into recovery mode. The system repair tool failed (See Pictures). Any ideas? I would appreciate any help you can give me. 2012-10-27 21.06.12.jpg 2012-10-27 21.06.14.jpg 2012-10-27 21.11.49.jpg

    You may have to replace the SSD, or check OCZ for a firmware update

    I just emailed OCZ customer support and explained my problem. Hopefully they can help fix/replace it

    It turns out that I had a dated firmware version. Thankfully OCZ supplies tools to easily update the firmware. Hopefully this update will fix my problem. Thanks for all your help!
