Windows 7: BSOD random win7 on mac pro 09 bootcamp

BSOD random win7 on mac pro 09 bootcamp

I have a macbook pro 09 running win 7 on boot camp.
This problem started back when I bought new ram from gskill a set of 4 gigs total 8 gigs.
At first I thought it was the ram but multiple tests with memtest showed no problems.
I reinstalled windows fresh and all was well... a month and half later problem arose again.
It's not as constant as it was before where it BSOD's rarely. But over time its happening at faster intervals.

Please consider the data I am attaching and help me figure out what is going on, perhaps its one of my programs that I put on my computer.

Thanks

Code:
Windows 7 Professional 64bit Service pack 1
Nvidia Gforce 9400M
8gigs ram Gskill
Macbook Pro 2009
Fujitsu MJA2250BH FFS G1 Hard drive 250 gigs 5400RPM
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.53GHz
Boot camp version 3.3

If you have done 6-7 passes with memtest you can assume it is a driver. If not do memtest.

These were caused by a memory exception. Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.


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.

Alright I did that second option running driver verifier. BSOD right as I logged in.
It has KeyAgent.sys as the reason. I am posting new bsod diagnostic data.

I included 2 of the dumps from trying to relog twice.

these were related to KeyAgent.sys from Apple. I would re-install newest.

How would I go about that? Should I reinstall boot camp entirely? or is there a specific driver I can reinstall

Not having worked on a mac for over a decade I cant tell you. If there is a driver with that name on it you probably can drag it to where the current one is and over-write it. Be sure to make a backup just in case.
