Windows 7: BSOD yet again, Please Help!

BSOD yet again, Please Help!

Hi there,

My new PC has been getting BSODs at random times before - being idle, browsing and even in safe mode. After numerous tries of trying to fix that, I went on to reinstall Windows 7; formatted the hard disk for a clean install. Once up and running, it all seemed fine until I tried to update my mouse and keyboard combo software and in the zip file is the recent dump files. Instead of going thru the hassle of trying to fix this again, I've decided to post here for help, so here it is. Please let me know if more information is needed to troubleshoot this issue, thanks in advance!!!

System Spec:
-Windows 7 64bit Home Premium w/ SP1 (full retail version)
-my PC is just about a month old
-current age of OS installation is 3 days

When I go looking for posts to work on, I look for those with 0 replies.
On rare occasions (like this), I go hunting for those posts with 1 or 2 replies to see if they need help.

From the perfmon report we find this:
Quote:
Warning
Symptom:[IMG]res://wdc.dll/warning.gif[/IMG]
The VolumeDirty flag is set on the diskCause:A logical disk has the dirty bit set.Details:This disk has been marked as dirty, it may be experiencing errors or might have not been shut down correctlyResolution:1. Run chkdsk on the drive and document any errors identified.
2. If chkdsk determines that there are errors on the drive run chkdsk /f to repair the errors.Related:Disk Diagnosis
Please run CHKDSK on the C: drive according to these instructions:
Quote:
CHKDSK /R /F:
Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as adminstrator) Command Prompt. Please do this for each hard drive on your system.
When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter. Then reboot and let the test run. It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors. See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.

Elevated Command Prompt:
Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"

CHKDSK LogFile:
Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application log file entry.
Double click on the Source column header.
Scroll down the list until you find the Chkdsk entry (wininit for Windows 7) (winlogon for XP).
Copy/paste the results into your next post.
If unable to locate the log file, just rerun the perfmon report and see if the DIRTY BIT is still set. If it is, you'll have to format your hard drive in order to fix that condition.

More to follow after reading the dump files.....

Just a hunch here, but I wonder if this is a bad stick of RAM. Please run these free hardware diagnostics to see if there's any damage to the system:
Quote:
H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
HD Diagnostic (read the details at the link) - this is different from the CHKDSK from above, so please run it also.

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Free Online AntiMalware Resources (read the details at the link)
Another hunch would be your Kaspersky Internet Security being corrupted. The "test" for this is to uninstall it and install another (free) antivirus TEMPORARILY to see if that fixes the problem. Here's a link to a page listing some free antivirus': http://www.carrona.org/freeav.html

Beyond that, the only other evidence is that you have 2 different BSOD errors - which could be the start of a pattern that indicates a hardware problem. But I'd have to see 2 or 3 more memory dumps in order to start to reach that conclusion.

Nope, it didn't annoy anyone. I was just trying to let you know how things worked - so you wouldn't end up being forgotten.

In most cases it's OK to "bump" your post - but when you're dealing with areas that require specialized knowledge, that may not be the case. And, if there's a shortage of the specialists, they will take shortcuts when looking for posts to respond to - such as looking for topics with 0 replies

Good luck to you and please let us know how the tests come out.

Hi there,

So here's the scoop so far. I brought the pc in back to the store since it was still under warranty and they did a thorough hardware tests for 2 full days. Found no errors and BSOD didn't occur. When I got it back, I got Kaspersky to update it's database but BSOD occurred in the middle. Restarted and now it shows it's virus database is corrupted. Tried numerous updates and ran back to previous working state, but still failed. Decided to remove it and went w/ Microsoft Security Essentials. Worked for a few days, until the pc started from a cold boot and BSOD showed up again. This time it's worse as each time I get the boot options to choose from Safe Mode, w/ network, w/ DOS, last known configuration, etc, I just get a black screen and eventually would turn into BSOD. The same one I've provided in the post w/ MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. Since I couldn't get anything to work, I formatted the hard drive and made a fresh Windows 7 install. Then I thought it's a hard drive issue so I went to Seagate's site and downloaded a tool to check my drive. BSOD w/ same error showed up in the middle of the Long Generic test. Which I think caused it by the pc going into Sleep mode during the test, but I'm not very certain of it. I will be doing the same Long Generic test from Seagate called "SeaTools for Windows" now and will check back after work. As well as the other tests you've mentioned on your posts. Thank you so much again.

Sorry for the long story but I just thought you might want to know what had happened so far. Also, if you want me to perform another Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions again, please let me know. But, I was able to sneak in a chkdsk /r /f earlier today and here are the results:

Chkdsk found problems with the hard drive's file system and repaired it.
Let it run for a while and then run chkdsk /r /f again. Do this every day for the next week or so.

If you get further chkdsk errors, then it's time to:
- backup your stuff/data
- ensure that you have your recovery disks on hand
- wipe the hard drive with DBAN or KillDisk (both are free - google for them)
- install Windows while connected to the internet
- install all Windows Updates, then install Service Pack 1, then install all Windows Updates that show up
- check Device Manager for any missing drivers - post back here for advice on locating the latest version
- install a free antivirus (DO NOT install an Internet Security Application)
- DO NOT install any other programs/devices/etc until we're finished testing.
- Run the system and attempt to recreate the problem.
Once done testing feel free to install whatever programs you desire - but keep track of what you install (just in case it messes things up). DO NOT have more than one Antivirus or Firewall operating at the same time!

Sounds good!!!

But I wanted to make something clear that the chkdsk report from my previous post was done after when Windows couldn't boot in any way. Hopefully that doesn't change the list you've provided me, thanks!
