Windows 7: Ntoskrnl.exe Blue Screen

09 Dec 2010   #71

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

We need to get the RAM issued sorted first. It can affect the driver issue.

Are there any tests such as MEMtest that could identify which RAM(s) is/are causing the problem
The person I brought my pc from says that I can only send back 1 Memory stick back (i have 4x4gb)

I just realized you have 16GB of RAM.

As mentioned, a Bad stick could be a possibility.

It is also possible, that having all the DIMM slots populated with that much RAM could be the issue (depending on what the RAM is rated for & speed its set at) as it could be too much of a strain at default settings)

As already suggested, the best way is to test each stick individually.

If they all test good, try running with just 2x4 (8GB) and see if passes then.

I agree, you do need to fix the RAM at some stage.

OK. I am not a hardware Guru at all. I will ask the hardware guys to take a look at this thread and offer their help.

Carl is right, when running that much RAM you will likely need to adjust some settings.

First ensure all the RAM sticks are good.
Use this tutorial for guidance: How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+

I'm afraid that if RAM passes one or two memtest86+ doesn't guarentee there are no RAM problems.
If you follow the above tutorial your chances of finding the correct fix will be much better.

Test each RAM card one at a time, looking for RAM cards that pass and motherboard slots that pass.
If you are not comfortable removing and testing RAM cards then you will need to find someone to help you or take it to a local repair shop. After reading through this thread, the RAM issue needs to be explored first. This can cause the errors and BSoDs you are having.

D/L CPUZ and post a snip of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.

For posting the information , enter 'Snipping tool' in the Start button > Search box, hit enter. Select the area you want to post and save to a convenient place.

Have you been checking your temperatures?

Use Speed Fan or Core Temp , run one of these and check the CPU temps when at idle, under load and/or testing.
Let us know the minimum and maximum temps you get.

Go to your BIOS and tell us what the North Bridge (NB) voltages are, look under the M.I.T. page you should see 'CPU NB VID Control'.
It's on page 43 of your motherboard manual.
Gigabyte Motherboard Manual GA-MA78LMT-US2H

There known issues with AMD integrated memory controllers, the CPUZ tabs will give the information needed to check this, that much RAM will usually require a NB (memory controller) voltage bump.

Post the revision number of your motherboard.
If you don't know it, then open your case and look in the lower left corner on the motherboard, it is printed there.

Do your BSoDs happen when you first start your computer or randomly?
