Multiple BSoD fresh Install Win 7x32 on Reformatted 1T Hard Drive x07e
PUH-LEEZE Help me before I do awful awful things!! Ugghh!
Model:HP a1560n ~4 years old
OS: Originally XP Media Center
NEW OS: Installing New Windows 7 Ult x32
Newer HDD: Hard Drive Replaced: Samsung 1Tb Spinpoint f3 7200 hd103sj here ..XP has issue with large drives?..(sector 4 alignment issues? for Windows XP..and never got XP working on the new drive smoothly..Not sure how to mess with this HDD stuff..but darik boot and nuke was done on it then ran install..NTFS is format type..Dont know what logical and primary settings are supposed to be.
Memtest: passed for ran 7 hours..ran hardware test on drive..passed (also on HBCD) Dont have recovery disks from HP..and not available..(does that matter with a new intall??)But I did have the win 7 working "more stable" that it has since I started using the PC again..(had it boxed away for 7 months) It said it was not genuine..so I used DAz Loader dump thing to show it authentic thing..errors started showing every hour to few minutes after restarted...So...I got a clean retail disk to install from...SAME PROBLEMS..often
Tried following OS's:
UPdated the Intel chipset drivers 945G Ran Drive update programs..have the drivers
HP Win 7 Ult w/ loader
Have done windows update still bsod's...ran it witout updates...bsod
Clean New Windows 7 ult x32
Errors I've seen:
"IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL_ "with the 0x0000000A error
THis..I've never seen before
Call your hadware vendor for support
** The system ahs halted ***
I have had crashes while installing new OS over previous intall...Did'nt think that was possible if I was installing new OS.. OR at least I'm not sure if it means there's a hardware problem..bad mobo sodder connection ..etc..not sure how to test that..but have been running Hirens Boot Disk tools to try to get idea of whats wrong.
BIOS has most recent update from 12 of 08..from Hewlett Packard site:
Motherboard ASUS P5LP-LE are for HP since the Asus site does not list the board for driver updates..
DO I need to try different BIOS from asus to try to run this board? And get allthe drivers for the components seperately and install them? Dont know how to do all that..but if necessary..happy to learn how..since it may help to build a new system soon.

* These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (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!!!
If you have raid > update its Driver.
*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.
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.
* Please run the update readiness tool and then update to SP-1
Ensure you install the correct 64 or 32 bit option for your system)
Download the System Update Readiness Tool (64bit)
Download the System Update Readiness Tool (32bit)
Now update to SP-1
Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
* What Anti Virus program are you using?

WELL...TURNS OUT ITS a STICK OF RAM ..EVEN AFTER I ran the memtest86 overniight..it did not show any problems..but after talking to a friend that told me that memtests often dont show anything for him...I opted to try to boot and run on 1 stick at a time..and Wallah!! Isoslated the issue to a 1Gig stick of memory. THANK YOU FOR you help with this...This place is awesome.
