Windows 7: New System, Having Issues

08 Dec 2010   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

I don't know of anyway to save the results other than using a camera to take pictures of the screen. The fact that Memtest showed errors is where you start. RAM errors can be caused by one or more bad RAM sticks, a bad motherboard slot, mismatched RAM, RAM incompatible with the motherboard, a bad memory controller (motherboard), etc.

Your next step is to remove all of your RAM except for one stick in the first slot and run Memtest on that stick for at least seven passes. If know errors are found, remove that stick, mark it as good and test the next stick in the same slot. Repeat until you have tested all of your RAM sticks. Obviously, if a stick shows errors, mark it as bad. Now take a known good stick and test each RAM slot with that stick. Post back with your results.

Is all of your RAM identical - same brand, same model? Mismatched RAM can cause errors. Is you RAM listed on your motherboard's compatibility list? Are your RAM settings default?

Edited to add: Sorry Tom, I did not see your post. At least we are both on the same sheet of music.

gdrv.sys - uninstall Gigabyte's Easy Saver program, as it is known to cause BSODs. However, you have definitely got to address the RAM problem.

Ok, will do. Hope it's just a stick and not the whole motherboard. I suppose either is a pain in the butt though

The memory I have is 2 sticks (2GB each) of: CORSAIR XMS3 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 and 2 sticks (2GB each) of: Corsair XMS3 TW3X4G1333C9AG Dual Channel DDR3 RAM - - PC10666, 1333MHz, 4096MB (2x 2048MB), 240 Pin, Dual-Channel

I did a search on and neither of those specific model numbers were listed (though ones very similar were). I am assuming this is the issue vs something being "bad"? I just thought I was fine with same brand and same size (didn’t even know they came at different speeds). Do I need to order 2x more of one or the other? Or just put them in specific slots so the same speeds match up? Or do I need to get 4x sticks of something totally different? And I am assuming the settings are default, not sure how I would have edited them

This is what the Gigabyte website says about Memory. Not sure what all that stuff after the asterisk means exactly:

  1. 4 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 16 GB of system memory (Note 1)
  2. Dual channel memory architecture
  3. Support for DDR3 2200+/1800/1600/1333/1066/800 MHz memory modules
  4. Support for non-ECC memory modules
  5. Support for Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory modules
* To reach DDR3 2200 MHz and above, you are required to use with Intel Core i7/Core i5 CPU without HD Graphics and install a discrete graphics card.
When using Intel Core i5/Core i3/ Pentium CPU with HD Graphics, the maximum memory speed supported is 1666 MHz

Your RAM needs to be one that is on the approved list for your motherboard. If it is not, the RAM is not matched to your motherboard; it is not compatible. Also, your RAM needs to be identical - all should be the same number. Two different model numbers of RAM are mismatched RAM. At this point I think your problem is twofold: (1) mismatched RAM; and (2) RAM not compatible with your motherboard.

I am not RAM expert by any stretch of the imagination. If you like, I can get one of the hardware Gurus to look at this thread and give an opinion and advice.

I just re-ran MemTest with just 2 sticks of the CORSAIR XMS3 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 in it and it reported zero errors. So I will need to either live with 4GB of RAM, or purchase 2 more matching ones. What a dang fool I was.

I am still having BSOD whenever I try to remove one of the Gigabyte programs via Control Panel --> Programs. It is called: ON_OFF Charge B10.0427.1. I was unable to find the program called Easy Saver or that file via Search.

Should I still be concerned about Driver Verifier? I was unable to find that either

Turn off Driver Verifier. You latest dump is a Driver Verifier enabled dump. Unfortunately, it blames a Windows system core file, which is highly unlikely to be the real cause.

A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught.  This is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.
Arg1: 0000000000000062, A driver has forgotten to free its pool allocations prior to unloading.
Arg2: fffffa80052c4ec8, name of the driver having the issue.
Arg3: fffffa80056aef00, verifier internal structure with driver information.
Arg4: 0000000000000001, total # of (paged+nonpaged) allocations that weren't freed.
    Type !verifier 3 drivername.sys for info on the allocations
    that were leaked that caused the bugcheck.
