Lately, I have been experiencing multiple blue screens of deaths, game freezes, audio buzzing, complete blackouts of the screen. I have updated to the latest GPU drivers, audio drivers, latest BIOS version but still, I was still unable to resolve any issues.

My system specifications:

  • Laptop: Asus ROG G752VY
  • OS: Windows 10 PRO 64-bit Version 1903
  • Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60 GHz
  • GPU: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX980M with 4GB GDDR5
  • Memory: 16 GB DDR4 2133 MHz
  • Storage: 1TB HDD 7200 RPM && Windows OS installed on Samsung 960 Evo 256GB

More info on the specifications of the laptop available here.

I decided to run LatencyMon and try to find out what might be wrong. The output of it is:

There seems to be a problem with my HDAudBus.sys and wdf01000.sys. Has anyone encountered similar issues and how I can resolve those? Is this a hardware or software problem?

Multiple errors found in Event Viewer:

- The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
- The server Microsoft.SkypeApp_15.64.80.0_x86__kzf8qxf38zg5c!App.AppXtwmqn4em5r5dpafgj4t4yyxgjfe0hr50.mca did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

  • (1) In 112220-106171-01.dmp the problem is in driver stornvme.sys with error code STATUS_INTEGER_DIVIDE_BY_ZERO. Do you have an NVMe disk? (2) On 100720-153000-01.dmp the error is INTERNAL_POWER_ERROR with an undocumented error code, maybe connected to power problem. (3) Did a Windows update happen recently? (4) Search for errors in the Event Viewer, (5) To check the hardware run MemTest86 overnight.

  • (5) Run sfc /scannow, follow with the DISM command in the article, and if DISM finds anything run sfc /scannow again.

  • 1 Yes, I do have a NVMe disk - Samsung 960 Evo 256GB. My Windows is located on it. 2 My laptop is always connected to its charger and most of the crashes happen while plugged in. Can that be an issue? 3 Yes, but I believe crashes started a few updates ago so I am really not sure which one might have caused it. 4 I will be updating the main question with the data from event viewer. 5 I will use that one tonight.

1 Answer 1


The symptoms:

  • All software tests have passed
  • All disk tests have problems
  • A reboot only helps for a short while
  • Even a new install of Windows does not help

Conclusion: The disk is dead and needs to be replaced.
(I had this suspicion already, but full testing was required before giving such an answer.)

  • I wanted to test the laptop before confirming on the thread here. I have now installed my Windows on another SSD. I still have not plugged out the faulty one since I wanted to make sure. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Today I got a brand new error. Not sure how this might be connected. The error is in the updated question above

  • Ensure that the faulty SSD is fully disconnected. If problems still arrive then it looks like there are more damaged component(s). Did you have a power surge?

  • I will be disconnecting it and use the PC for an extended period again. It happened during playing a game. No power surges.
