Windows 7: Random BSODs, Different Errors

Random BSODs, Different Errors

Hey all,

My husband's computer is on the fritz. I can -fix- most issues (software or hardware), but I'm horrible at diagnosing. I have attached the requested zip file containing the PERFMON output and jcgriff2 collection. There are a few dump files from months ago in there, but you can see most of them are from this month.

The BSODs happen at completely random times. A few times have been while playing a game, sometimes when just browsing on Firefox, and once it blue screened while I was just shutting it down.

I have done the following so far:
- Ran checkdisk
- Ran a virus/spyware scan using AVG
- Ran the Windows diagnostic, it didn't find any errors (not very reliable, I know)
- Installed new NVIDIA drivers (GeForce 9500 GT)
- Pulled out and reseated all 4 RAM cards (6GB total - 2x1GB 2x2GB), checked power connections, video card seating, etc.

I did NOT run Memtest86 yet, I haven't had a chance to.

System info:
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)
The mobo, CPU, some RAM, and video card are from Dec 2008. PSU (700W) from May 2009. Hard drive from Aug 2009. Originally had XP Pro installed, wiped the drive completely and installed Windows 7 in June 2010.

Any help would be appreciated, I've tried looking at the dump files using Blue Screen View but I just really don't know what to look for.

Thank you!

Hello Angelyco & Welcome to SevenForums.

A memory_corruption is following in most of your crashes. Have a look at this. (scroll in the code)

Doing a MemTest86+ will test your RAM sticks. Do it under these instructions:

Post back your results after running it for 7 passes or so.

Thanks, I'll have to kick my hubby off the computer tonight and finally run it, I'll post the results as soon as I have them.

I noticed the above code was from the January BSOD, do the current ones also have the same error?

I did not notice. However, they could still be relevant. Just please, upload any new .dmp incoming

If MemTest86+ will show errors, maybe you can borrow some of your friends, family, and see if they work!

I left Memtest86+ running overnight, when I left this morning it was done with pass 5 and no errors. It's still going, but I won't know about pass 7+ results for a few more hours. After 5 passes though, I can probably assume there are no issues.

Anything else in the dumps that might be an issue?

Update: Memtest was able to do 8 passes by the time we shut it down, no errors.
