Windows 7: Many BSODs Prevent Startup

27 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Many BSODs Prevent Startup


I was playing a game for a while, when all of a sudden, with no warning, a BSOD flashes, and the computer immediatly restarts.

Feeling slightly uneased, I allowed the computer to boot normally, but was met with another BSOD. This one was titled: "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" with a stop error beginning with 0x00000050.

I then tried to do good old fashioned Safe Mode, but what shown "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT" with the stop error "0x0000001A"

Last Known Good Config, same as above.

Seeing the word "memory" I ran Memtest. I had 2000000 before I let it stop. However, when I googled these error messages, people find that they have simple fixes, but the fixes they speak of require a boot into the OS.

I now tried to boot it again, and the new error is 0x0000001E.

I also remooved my graphics card, switched to the onboard graphics, tried to enter Safe Mode, and got a new stop error: 0x00000024

I tried running CHKDSK from my windows 7 disk, but when I clicked on "Repair your computer" this new BSOD popped up: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Stop 0x0000000A

I cannot run startup repair, I cannot go into safemode. I can go into BIOS.
I'm running:
Windows 7 64bit,
Crucial Rendtion DDR2,
Core 2 Duo E5300,
and Gigabyte GA -G31M

Should I just call it quits and RMA or does anyone have any ideas?

If this is what you get when using MemTest (the RED stuff at the bottom), you have memory problems and must replace the memory:

Use the instructions from Step 6 at this link to determine which sticks/slots are bad: (read the details at the link)
