BSOD - EVENT 41 After CPU Upgrade

As I've seen connection issues cause BSOD's, my first suggestion will be to double/triple check all connections to ensure that they are firmly connected (using the appropriate ant-static precautions). with the ASUS M5A97 EVO R2.0 you need 2201 bios. For about the past month and a half, I've been getting random crashes in Windows 7. Thanks for reading and I appreciate your help. navigate here

If it is a hardware issue, the best thing you can do prior to RMAing anything is to make sure the problem is obvious. Event Xml: 41 2 1 63 0 0x8000000000000002 29954 System Jeffrey-Lin-PC I'd look into it if I weren't on my phone. I don't know why it would do that, maybe failed to install it correctly.

Just running the replacement memory, not yours. A crash during a bios update will most likely render your motherbord unusable without sending it into ASUS for a bios chip replacement.If you do have bios version 1604 I would Could you export and post a copy of your system event logs containing these events?

  1. Those event codes are very generic and would probably be generated if you cut the power to your system while Windows was running.
  2. I might have figured it out.
  3. This driver was a plug n play driver, I didnt install this myself.
  4. It is very important that you insure the correct motherboard when searching for bios updates.
  5. Unless of course you want me to gather together the various kernel-power event logs and post them, but I can't pretty much guarantee the information in the various system logs is
  6. At this point a bad windows installation is the only thing that makes the slightest bit of sense (aside from a bad piece of hardware possibly).
  7. That way, if problems do appear, you've already identified the possible source.

Lets make sure we are getting the right file before we work on the installation. Indeed it does. If the results are consistent, then you definately have a hardware problem. http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2059999/blue-screen-cpu-upgrade.html Verfied drivers are up to date - according to someone the most common cause for an event id 41 is bad device drivers.

I'm sorry you feel that way. Reply With Quote 05-29-11,02:34 PM #6 BoundByBlood View Profile View Forum Posts Maybe Something Cool? I can't make heads or tails of this 6008 event. Working on it.

Network drivers included (unless Windows would then run off its own drivers). If you still have your old CPU I would reinstall it to update your bios to avoid any crashes during the update.

I'm going to uninstall the catalyst drivers, reboot into safe mode and run driver sweeper, and reboot normally downloading the ati display driver off of windows update. check over here Yes, you WANT it to be set up so it fails, and quickly. Don't have a spare one to test. Looking in event viewer all the kernel-power critical errors are followed by another error event id 6008.

I was looking at my event error log and noticed another error,Windows failed fast startup with error status 0xC00000D4. I have the M5A97-ASUS-1605.7z file of 2.24 MB in my downloads but cant seem to be able to get it to update the bios? Well, I don't use HDMI audio so I disabled the AMD audio driver and this seemed to work for a while, but it wasn't long before the reboots started happening again. http://computermacintosh.com/bsod/bsod-bc-code-7f.html Like I mentioned before, I had just did a clean windows 8 install with no drivers, no programs, nothing, and was still getting this same error.

So I'm assuming that means the hardware is good or at least stable. Also, before The event 41, there were two events always show up. Event log is showing me the following for a critical event at the same time the shutdown occurs (The date on the log is from a week ago but this happens

Fast startup was an issue back in the early (pre-release) days of Win8.

Simply search the inf directory for that code and make sure Windows search is set to search file contents. Attached are screenshots of both. But no, My computer still restart after I took out the bad RAM. Diagnosed the RAM - Supposedly the most common faulty hardware for this error is bad ram so I did a Memtest86+ for twelve hours.

I'm labeling this problem as solved. WARHEAD666Mar 16, 2014, 3:36 PM Baralis said: WARHEAD666 said: Baralis said: A Corsair 650 Watt should be enough wattage.Yes I was referring to a bios update.

Join Date Sep 2009 Location MS Gulf Coast Well, I never really thought of my PSU as acting up. I will reinstall my old CPU this weekend and do the bios update and see what happens and will let you know if that worked, thanks again. So far not getting any critical errors on reboot.

I looked at Asus site and found the Asus M5A97 EVO or a M5A97 Pro but not an EVO PRO as you listed in the op so I am not sure Reply With Quote 05-28-11,11:59 PM #4 TempliNocturnus View Profile View Forum Posts Member Join Date May 2006 Location Where angels carry savage weapons I'm a little reluctant to call this I said you wouldn't have networking cause I told you to uninstall >>everything<<.

If MS Security software was making systems reboot, I can assure you, you'd hear it screamed from 100 Million rooftops, nightly. Software can't always find hardware problems, because hardware runs at a lower level. Members have access to different forum appearance options, and many more functions. If you still have your old CPU I would reinstall it to update your bios to avoid any crashes during the update.

However looking at the EVO and the PRO they list support for your CPU but only with bios version 1604 or later.
