Crash to blue screen using both P3Dv4 and XP11....

Recommended Posts

I figured I would post about this strange issue in here since it is something that has never happened before.  I have flown P3Dv4 for a total of about 20 hours without issue and I had a sudden PC crash to blue screen while on the ground at FB KSFO the other night.  I had only done a quick takeoff and approach in the PMDG 777 and was taxiing in when it occurred.  I did not catch the error message on the blue screen though.  I successfully flew another 7 hours since then without issue so I did not think much of it and figured it was a fluke.  I recently installed XP11 as well and within the first hour of flying I had the same exact issue where the PC just freezes and goes to the BSOD.  This time, the message indicated STOP CODE: System_Service_Exception and then stated that FLTMGR.SYS had failed.  I've tried to do a general search online but haven't been able to come up with anything.  My system is fairly new and I did recently add an additional 16mb of RAM (same type/speed) shortly before P3Dv4 was released for a total of 32GB.  I'm running the latest Windows 10 version and my specs are below in my sig.  Just wondered if any of the smart minds here had any ideas!!??:mellow:  Thanks!

I'm fairly convinced this is a hardware/drivers issue here. Mostly hardware related issues cause a BSOD as they are interacting directly with the hardware. Make sure your drivers are up to date, and that if you are overclocking, try lowering your settings a bit, and test with prime95 to ensure you have a stable overclock.

1. Remove the newly added RAM modules. Test the system for with the same apps. If there is no problem go to 2.

2. Add back the new RAM, one module at a time and test the system again, making sure that the modules are seated properly in the slots.

You can also try the built-in  Windows memtest utility as a first step.

Thanks, only my SoundBlaster driver needed to be updated, the rest seem ok.  My PC is overclocked (Jetline) but not sure I want to mess with that at the moment (I don't know how!).

I did run the Windows memory check after I had the crash and it showed no issues.  I will try to remove the new modules and see what happens...if I can figure out which 2 are the new ones!!:blink:  Thanks!
