Windows 7: New Mobo/CPU/RAM - > BSOD followed by missing/corrupt error on startup

New Mobo/CPU/RAM - > BSOD followed by missing/corrupt error on startup

Hey guys, I recently purchased a new motherboard/cpu/ram and did a fresh install of windows 7 to make sure I didn't have any driver problems. Shortly after installing however, I would get random BSOD followed by 2 different errors, either that "windows/system32/ntkrnlpa.exe is missing or corrupt, or that fvevol.sys critical system driver is missing or corrupt".

I've also had smaller errors, like sound randomly not working, and videos having very low FPS, which would fix itself upon restarting the computer.

I've ran a memory test using memtest86, which yielded no errors.

My specs:

Operating System
MS Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit (retail)
AMD Phenom II X4 905
4.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz
MSI 870-G45
NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM) (BFG Tech)
Hard Drives
488GB Seagate ST3500418AS ATA Device (SATA)

Everything is brand new except my video card (3 years old) and hard drive (2 years old).

edit: added BSOD dump
Attachment 132687

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, and welcome to the forum. I looked at your three latest dumps. All three indicate memory corruption.
Bugcheck A (2X), IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Usual causes: Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility.

Bugcheck 8E, KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED. Usual causes: Insufficient disk space, Device driver, Video card, BIOS, Breakpoint in startup without having a debugger attached, Hardware incompatibility, Faulty system service, 3rd party remote control, Memory.
Out of date drivers can cause memory corruption and BSOD's. Update your video driver through the link provided. To remove any left over driver remnants, especially from graphics cards, use driver sweeper Guru3D - Driver Sweeper.
nvlddmkm.sys Thu May 14 16:32:27 2009 - nVidia Video drivers. Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers.
Update this driver and see if this improves your system's stability. Post back and let us know. If you get another BSOD, please upload it and we will go from there.

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: c0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: 970e3d94, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: 956bfad0, Trap Frame
Arg4: 00000000

Debugging Details:

EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 - The instruction at 0x%08lx referenced memory at 0x%08lx. The memory could not be %s.

Windows 7 Ultimate x32

Thanks for responding Carl. I did actually update those drivers quite recently from the NVIDIA website, but now that I look at my current driver version, it doesn't match. It says that my current driver is from 2009, where as the latest driver online is from 2010. So I guess this means that for some reason it didn't install the driver properly from before. This time around however it worked, the date on my drivers matches the one online, so this definitely could have been the problem. Hopefully this was the issue.

Thanks for the help.

Windows 7 Ultimate x32

Unfortunately it looks like the problem came back.

At first I had crashes inside a video game, followed by an error, which led me to believe that my problem was my old graphics card, but then I also got several BSODs, and then constant crashes of various windows programs (like Windows Explorer, Windows Live Communications Platform, etc) , along with firefox, skype, msn messenger, and flash player constantly crashing.

I reformatted my C drive and reinstalled Windows 7 once again, but I had literally the same problems come up once again; random BSOD, critical system driver missing or corrupt errors on startup, programs crashing, and even weird sound tears from time to time. I'm really starting to think that something is wrong with the motherboard, even though it is brand new.

edit: another interesting fact, the interface for the taskbar and firefox sometimes looks like it is in safemode for a minute or so (looking like windows 2000) , before returning back to the windows 7 style. Also the keyboard has randomly stopped working for a short amount of time on several occasions.

Well this just keeps getting worse and worse. Now the sound randomly disappears and videos slow down.

Ran Prime95 and got a bunch of errors.

Got errors on 2/4 tests after a few hours for the FFT option, and got instant errors on all four tests with the Blend option.

Has to be defective CPU or motherboard at this point?

It also could be RAM. Have you run Memtest? If not, run Memtest from a cold boot after your computer has been off for an hour or so. Let it run for a minimum of seven passes; this will take 6-8 hours. Follow the instructions in this tutorial and post back with your results: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Ran memtest, the problem appears to be the second stick of RAM (first stick passed 7 times with no errors, second had errors on first pass). Also ran my computer on each stick separately to be sure, no problems with stick 1 and BSOD with stick 2. Going to RMA it now. Thanks for the help!

You are very welcome for the help. Thank you for reporting back. I am glad you were able to isolate the problem. Good job! Let us know when you get your replacement stick and how your system runs.
