Windows 7: BSOD 3b

19 Jul 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Howzit all,

Well I have read many threads and tried so many things to help, but I keep having the same error. I have attached the FULL reports for you as requested in the instruction forum.

I have tried swoping Graphics cards, i have tried different drivers, i even updated ALL mobo drivers and it still happens. Can somebody please see if they can spot something i am missing?

This is rather annoying because it happens with normal browsing and sometimes happens about 5 times a day.

I have installed Windows numerous times, even tried Server 2008. Same thing. Service pack 1 also installed, nothing...

Intel® Desktop Board DP45SG
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33GHz, 2333 MHz

Warmest Regards,

Hello Lalaland, welcome to SF!

A 3B error: Usual causes: System service, Device driver, graphics driver, ?memory

Please first make sure you (finish) installing the Windows Updates. One by one manually if you have to.

Turn off / de-install your Nero monitoring tools.

Please tryout if you BSOD in Safemode? Safe Mode - Windows 7 Forums

If you don't then try:
Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then

Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
If that does not give errors, next step is:
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).

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.

Thanx, the problem is i get this even after a fresh install of OS, even tried 3 different OS's to make sure it is not a faulty image.

RAM tests come back ok, so does HDD too...

Ram test? If you run a memory test you need to run at least 6-7 passes which will take you at least a night....

Hi, Yes i ran the test, it took very long, about 8 hours. No problems with the RAM. What i was thinking is maybe my RAM is running too fast. I checked on Intel site and for this Dixton RAM should run at 800 and i have it at 1333, do you think that could be the reason?

No, If memtest ran ok... it's ok.
Did you do the Driver Verifier part? Is it on? If so, run normally until Driver Verifier causes a crash. Upload info and dump and it should give us more exact info on the malfunctioning driver.
