Bug Check 0x14B SOC_SUBSYSTEM_FAILURE Parameters

Parameter Description


Address of an SOC_SUBSYSTEM_FAILURE_DETAILS structure.






Optional. Address of a vendor-supplied data block.


The !analyze debug extension displays information about the bug check and can be very helpful in determining the root cause.

Use the provided nt!SOC_SUBSYSTEM_FAILURE_DETAILS structure to dump the failure data using the dt command and the address provided by Arg1.

   +0x000 SubsysType       : 1 ( SOC_SUBSYS_AUDIO_DSP )
   +0x008 FirmwareVersion  : 0
   +0x010 HardwareVersion  : 0
   +0x018 UnifiedFailureRegionSize : 0x24
   +0x01c UnifiedFailureRegion : [1]  "F"

Work with SoC vendor to further parse the data, including the optional vendor supplied general purpose data block.

You may want to examine the stack trace using the k, kb, kc, kd, kp, kP, kv (Display Stack Backtrace) command. You can specify the processor number to examine the stacks on all processors.

You can also set a breakpoint in the code leading up to this stop code and attempt to single step forward into the faulting code.
