  1. I need help determining what is causing a bsod. I've attached the last four minidumps. I've learned to use the windows debugger, and ran the analyses on the minidump for 2/28. It said problem was "probably" caused by ntoskrnl.exe, but the last time I ran into this problem cpc said bugcheck code 9c was hardware related. Anyways, thanks in advance for any help!

    Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

    Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe ( nt!KdPitchDebugger+ef4 )

    I can confirm that all your minidumps crash at ntoskrnl.exe and have a bugcheck of 9C.

    This is indeed a hardware problem.


    This is a hardware issue: an unrecoverable hardware error has occurred. The parameters have different meanings depending on what type of CPU you have but, while diagnostic, rarely lead to a clear solution. Most commonly it results from overheating, from failed hardware (RAM, CPU, hardware bus, power supply, etc.), or from pushing hardware beyond its capabilities (e.g., overclocking a CPU).

    Go HERE and follow the instructions for testing your ram/hdd.

    Also, check your mobo for bulging or leaking capacitors. See HERE for further info.
