Windows 7: BSOD occurs when using Solidworks

BSOD occurs when using Solidworks

Hi there-

Please forgive me if I do this wrong - I've tried to read all the tutorials but may have missed a step. First time posting, so bear with me. :-)

Disclaimers out of the way, I'm getting random BSOD's, seemingly to always to coincide with my usage of Solidworks (ver.2009). Although, to be fair, this is my work computer, and SW is always running, so it may be unrelated.

This is my first foray into debugging BSOD's (only recently started doing IT stuff), so I *think* I know what I'm doing, but we all know how that ends.

I've attached the jcgriff.zip, but I couldn't seem to get my perfmon /report to finish it's 60 second test for an output report (working on getting administrative rights, will update accordingly). I've also attached the two .dbg files I've found to help better understand.

It appears to be an error involving Memory Dumps and ntkernal errors.

Please let me know if I can provide any more info!

Edit: The OS is a non-OEM version of 7 Pro, 64bit. The computer is probably 5 months old, OS installed at time of purchase (home built computer) and is the same install since day 1.

Memory management Please run these two tests.


1-Memtest.
Quote:
*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.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

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.
