Will try that next.  Just turned caching off on the SSDs - that's just a shot in the dark,

 

If I can't debug it I might try to evade it.  Maybe a program I hear like move mouse might trick WIndows into never going into BSOD mode if it never thinks its idle?

 

If you think it's a power related thing, a lot of event timers and such are reliant on monitoring C states.

See if you can turn off some of the more 'agressive' C states in the BIOS and see if it continues to offend.

 

Tons of devices wont 'sleep' unless the computer is low C

Well I have turned off the disk caches - left Movemouse running plus a small 1 minute video looping on a minimised Windows Media Player - no crashes in a day - so one of these three helps matters.  I will turn off Movemouse and see what occurs.

 

I already had the ReadyBoost data set increased from 20MB to 130MB - just put it up to 200MB for good measure.

 

Thanks all - detective work continues!

What sort of device is Readyboost using?  Personally I don't see much point in using it at all in these days of fast SSDs and cheap, plentiful Ram.

No idea either!  BTW - stopped Move mouse and then Windows Media player and no crashes!  So some change in the WIndows Update (possibly Anniversary edition) appears to really not like to have any caching enabled on SSDs.

 

I have four SSDs in this machine - so next I may try and selective turn it one to see if I can find one that make it crash and figure out why it does this.  As far as I am aware each SSD has the latest firmware applied.

It's probably using one of the other SSDs. Turn it off as it is totally pointless if you have an SSD boot drive.


Of course you are my bright little star,

I've miles and miles of files pretty files of your forefather's fruit,

and now to suit our great computer. You're magnetic ink.
