Windows 7: BSOD on fresh install Windows 7

BSOD on fresh install Windows 7

Hey guys,
I built my PC from all new parts about 3-4 months ago, but from the get go it would intermittently blue screen, it settled down a month or two later but not sure why. Two days ago I wiped and formatted my drive and did a clean install of 7 as I was having unrelated issues I couldn't resolve. But now the blue screens are back. I thought it might be mobo driver issues but I finished updating the drivers and it's still happening.
System specs:
Windows 7 Professional 64x
Gigabyte ga-870fxa-ud5
AMD Phenom x6
AMD Radeon HD6870 1gb
two 4g G-Skill Ripjaw f3-12800cl9d-8gbxl RAM

Attached is the minidump and health report.
Thanks for any help!

Thanks for the quick reply.
I have used the update readiness tool and updated to SP-1.
I should have mentioned that I posted this after my first BSOD since enabling dump files. There have been numerous crashes with a variety of errors. I have attached the updated dump files for viewing.

Thanks

Your Crashes have several apparent causes but nothing definative. Please run the two tests below to help us narrow our focus.

ALSO please remove this driver as it has known problems with win 7 on some systems

AODDriver2.sys AMD OverDrive Service Driver from Advanced Micro Devices





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

* If you have raid update its Driver.




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+



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.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff 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).

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 "Special Pool", "Force Pending I/O Requests" and "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.

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.

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.

Sorry, I've only just started browsing these forums and from experience in other online forums once a thread falls to the second page its as good as gone. I work from this computer and have no secondary so you could say the frustration did get to me! Haha. Won't happen again, thanks for the heads up.

I will run the above tests and remove AODDriver2.sys and report back.

No worries.
Ok so I've run memtest86 and had no errors after nearly 8 passes, I then used verifier and got some consecutive crashes related to HIDCLASS.SYS which I have attached the minidumps of.
