Windows 7: Random BSOD. Mainly error 0x109

Random BSOD. Mainly error 0x109

I've been having crashes since 8/3 until now. It happens while playing a game, initial bootup, and even while the computer is idling. They mainly consist of the error code in the title. I'm running Windows 7 Home 64 bit. It's the original OS on the system and I believe it's OEM. The system and OS installation are both exactly one year old. I've tried reinstalling a few drivers in case that was the issue but I can't seem to find the one that's the problem. I also ran memtest overnight for about 10 hours and it had 2 errors over that time. Hopefully you can see if there's any issues in the attached logs below.

Wunder hi and welcome

You are correct about the 109 BC's. There are generally 3 causes

Corrupt drivers, malware, or RAM. Please run the below three things to test


1-Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*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.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+



2-Driver verifier

Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data 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.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable


3-Download Malwarbytes and run it.

BSOD 0x109
Hey all, My dell insprion has gotten the BSOD 0x109 twice now. I dont think it can be hard drive failure because its a brand new hard drive (the old one crashed about 2 weeks ago). Would updating the BIOS help with this issue? Im currently running dskchk (running very slow). Any other ideas?
