2 days ago I bought a new computer and after installation of Windows and motherboard drivers I get a BSOD every time I start windows normally.

The motherboard is MSI z97 gaming 3. I have tried reinstalling Windows and the drivers a couple of times, searching for the BSOD code in google and the result is that I cannot find out what's causing the error. I don't use any OC and haven't found any thread about that particular error.

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000420, 0xFFFFF800031E8B8D, 0xFFFFF8800410E468, 0xFFFFF8800410DB90)

As the first thing after installation of Windows I installed the latest motherboard drivers and then installed all drivers that came on a cd with the MB.

My RAM is HyperX FURY DDR3-1866 16GB CL10 (HX318C10FBK2/16).

  • What is the BSoD error? – td512 Jun 20 '15 at 6:33
  • Does the BSOD occur with a fresh Windows installation before installing the motherboard drivers? – Steven Jun 20 '15 at 6:41
  • *** STOP 0x0000007E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000420, 0xFFFFF80031E8B8D, 0xFFFFF8800410E468, 0xFFFFF8800410DB90) – NeveraX Jun 20 '15 at 6:42

  • All of them werent associated with my particular problem and there is plenty so i cant remember them – NeveraX Jun 20 '15 at 7:12

0x0000007E: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED A system thread generated an exception which the error handler did not catch. There are numerous individual causes for this problem, including hardware incompatibility, a faulty device driver or system service, or some software issues.

This is likely to be a driver issue or RAM fault. the first driver I'd look at is the sound card driver. It is usually the one to cause these problems.
