NTFS event 55

Postby Zeuter » Sun Jun 27, 2010 4:18 am

My new PC has been getting bluescreens ever since I built it half a year ago.
The most common bluescreen: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, pointing to VISTA_DRIVER_FAULT and memory_corruption.

Components of interest:
CPU: i7 920
6GB DDR3 GEIL RAM
Intel Postville 80GB SSD
Mobo: Gigabyte EX58-UD5
Running Win7 64bit.

Additionally, I've been getting a stream of NTFS event 55 errors in eventvwr. By a stream, I mean an event every 3-5 seconds for as long as the computer is turned on. This causes chkdsk to run at every boot: it will however not find anything. Running chkntfs in a command prompt however does return that the drive is "dirty".

The bluescreen dumps viewed in windbg point to corrupted memory, I've ran memtest which completed several tests without finding any errors whatsoever. I updated my motherboard/storage controller, so that can't be the issue either. I'm leaning towards either a failing power source or defective motherboard. Even then, I'm still suspicious towards the memory as the bluescreens still happen with the pagefile turned off, ruling out outright HDD failure.

What happens after you clear the bit and run chkdsk /F /R C: ?

Do the errors continue to show up?

Clear what bit? The error does not specify any file or HDD location, I just know that it's on C.

chkdsk does nothing whatsoever. It cannot find any errors.

Just ran a clean startup and ran some programs one by one, turns out it's Firefox. Might be one of the addons, I'll get on that now.

Uninstalling Firefox and dumping all personal data/customisations seems to have done the trick. After a reinstall, the error flood is gone. This fixed a few weird FF bugs I've encountered recently too (not restoring tabs among other things).

I'll have to see whether this resolves the crashes.

Windows will mark a drive as dirty (dirty bit) if it detects a problem with the drive - this causes chkdsk /f to run automatically.

Does chkdsk still run every time you turn your PC on? If not, then the bit has already been cleared.

The chkdsk/ntfs event 55 problem definitely has been cleared by reinstalling Firefox.

However, I got another bluescreen today. So the corrupted data was not the cause of the bluescreens. Oops.

To be sure it's not your memory take a stick out and use the PC, see if you can generate another blue screen. Then take the other stick out, etc.

If memtest didn't find anything over a +- 15 hour period of time, I highly doubt the problem is located there.

I dunno, I read your first post again and my initial thought is a memory issue.

What is the stop error code 0x0000000??

Taking out the memory and testing it is rather easy to do.. much easier than swapping out other pieces of hardware and testing them all out. But if you don't want to do that, why not check it with another tool to be sure..

What does win7 memory diagnostics say?

It says memory sizes over 4GB are not supported.

Ran it anyway, didn't find anything. Ran memtest86+ again, found nothing.

Could be the power source too, I should try switching around some cables.
