Crashes are clearly related to memory corruption. Since you have run memtest please run driver verifier to find which driver is the cause.


These crashes were caused by memory corruption (probably a driver). Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!




Driver verifier

Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

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/Windows 7 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.

Still memory corruption. have you run memtest AND driver verifier?




I notice your avast which is often at least a contributing cause of BSOD'S . Please remove and replace your Avast with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST

Yes i did both.Most of bsods from today are with Driver verifier ON.I changed my Ram like 4-5 times already.I usually works fine for a month or two and then i starts with the bsods again.Is it possible to be a mainboard problem and how can i check it.

If each stick has passed 5-6 passes with no errors it might well be the mobo. There are no tests for the non professional.

If the problem reappears after a month or two it is probably software. Driver verifier is an iffy proposition. It will most frequently catch the driver but some times it may take as long as 36-48 hours continuous running to find it

if you have not uploaded the verified DMPs please do.

Only one of the dMP's from 2 hours ago is driver verified and it is related to readyboost. I would stop using it at least to test.


The others (not verified) blame several other things

5 of 20 blame video (driver and directX)


I have a gut feeling it is your Avast.

I have no idea what readyboost is.Removed Avast but i was getting those bsods before when i was using Nod32 so i doubt its the antivirus.Using the newest ATI drivers but i tried with the previous 2 drivers.. still bsod.Removed 2 of my ram sticks and got memory_management error.Now i changed the places of other 2 sticks and no bsod so far but all games are crashing and giving some errors even mozzilla.

Readyboost ReadyBoost - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As I said 1/4 were related to video (perhaps directX) could be driver, card, heat, power, etc. Does the problem ever happen in safe mode (F8) with networking?
