Windows 7: continuous BSOD on windows 64bit startup

continuous BSOD on windows 64bit startup

Ive been having this problem around a week after i built my PC.. its a weird BSOD as it only happens first thing in the morning when i turn it on.. i get continuous rolls of BSOD's slightly after the windows start log appears. to stop the BSOD from happening i physically have to turn off the pc and turn it on again which works but is very much a nuscence and i have found that as the days go by the BSOD's get more troublesome to the point i had to format my HDD and reinstall windows but this never worked...

Firstly i thought it might be my graphics card (ATI 5870) so after i reinstalled Windows i used my mates graphics card (Nvidia 8600 GT) but the same BSOD appears every morning.

my guess it might be corrupt drivers or windows updates ruining or corrupting something.

I have tried the following

Formating HDD
Reinstalling Windows
Replacing Graphics cards
Re-Downloading different compatible versions of the Graphics card drivers.

and now after all this im very sure its not my graphics card but something else Maybe the RAM? or HDD? not to sure..

One problem is i cant make the BSOD appear if i do a certain thing even if i restart my pc a million times as it only happens in the mornings i find or probably if the pc has been off for a substantial amount of time odd i know lol.

I got some Minidumps of BSOD info might help alot...

ty to those that help

We need the actual DMP files

If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

OK it is a memory exception caused by a driver. The driver is not identified and in order to find out which it is we are going to have to run driver verifier.

Beyond that, please run Verifier with these settings:
Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like. From my limited experimentation it makes the BSOD's come faster.
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.
Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

If that doesn't work, post back and we'll have to see about fixing the registry entry off-line:
Code:
Delete these registry keys (works in XP, Vista, Windows 7):
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDrivers
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDriverLevel

Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Windows drivers for advanced users


In addition just to be sure you should run a memory test.

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.


Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Let us know if you need assistance with these.
