Windows 7: Now BSOD almost immediately

Now BSOD almost immediately

After our last attempt to fix this I have deleted a suspect driver and changed a video card. Seemed better for awhile. Almost overnight it took a turn for the worse. Now it is so bad I can barely keep it going long enough to collect the dump files for analysis. It is a recent build and all hardware was new. Any hints on where to go next would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
John

Hello JKN & Welcome to SevenForums!

I never tried this before. Looks like your Firefox caused one of your BSOD.

First thing to do.

Uninstall Firefox.

Code:
PROCESS_NAME:  firefox.exe
Though, it sounds quite unlikely.


Second thing to do.

You had a memory corruption also. Make a MemTest85+ test. Try placing the sticks in all slots, and see if you won't get any errors by that. Remove one stick and see if errors appear and so on.
If you can borrow a pair of sticks from a friend that you know is functional, do that. If you get any errors then, it'll be your slots. If you don't, it's your RAM.
This process is probably better explained in the tutorial below.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Code:
Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiReleaseConfirmedPageFileSpace+40 )

Good news! After several days with Memtest I have determined that my memory is fine and my motherboard is the culprit. Turns out it refuses to run anything in dual channel mode without stability issues and even with only one stick in it has issues at the stock settings for the memory. At the advice of the GSkill folks I have split up the sticks and slowed down the frequency and speeded up the timings and it is working great with no issues. FYI I left Firefox alone. Doesn;t seem to be a factor.

Thanks for the help,

John
