BSOD - various stop codes

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Full Retail
Built the system last summer, but the OS was installed about a month ago with Service Pack 1.

BSODs occur every few days. I suspend to memory often and the computer will BSOD when waking sometimes -- though this is usually not a BLUE screen, rather a RED/PINK screen, not sure what that means.

Specs:
Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
Intel i7 930
6GB Corsair DDR3 1600 kit (CMP6GX3M3A1600C7)
WD1002FAEX 1TB SATA3 drive
ATI Radeon HD 5670 video card

I've tried tweaking advanced DRAM settings in the BIOS in attempt to stop the BSODs with no success.

Virtually all of these were caused by memory corruption. Either the memory or a driver.



I would run memtest to verify your memory

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.


I would also run driver verifier to identify which driver is the culprit.

Quote:
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/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

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"
- 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).

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.

I ran memtest86+ for 7 hours 45 minutes. 8 passes and 55% through the 9th. 0 errors found.

I'll try running the driver verifier now and report back with the results.

Thanks for the help!
