Windows 7: BSOD when doing anything, error 0x0000001a

BSOD when doing anything, error 0x0000001a

Hi, this is my first time here.
Over the last year or so i've had many problems with my PC. The main problem is that the computer just shuts off or gets a BSOD. about 2-3 months ago i found out that my PSU (tegan 1300w) isnt doing well so i sendt it back (RMA) and got a new one (corsair hx1200). The computer was stable for 2-3 weeks then it started again. This time alot worse then ever.

The last hardware changed before the PSU was the GPUs (2x asus gtx 560) and a motherboard (Asus rampage extreme 3).

Now here's the last BSOD error code.
0x0000001a (0x0000000000041790, 0xfffffa8008596020, 0x000000000000ffff, 0x0000000000000000).

The computer often shuts off after 5-6 seconds when turning it on first time every day (happens on cold start only). but sometimes it does not, but rather alot of problems on the OS.

I really need help! I can't do this by my own anymore.

These types of faults usually indicate hardware issues. I would do the following to check the hardware:
  • If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

  • Monitor temperatures during the following tests.
    Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures.
  • Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

    If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Thanks for the reply

Thanks for replying.

Here's some results:

Hardware Temp: everything seems to be ok (see attached files)
FurMark: VGA Stress Test: very stable and no errors
Video Memory Test: 15 errors (see attached files)
CPU test: no errors (done it before too, without errors)

Thats how far i've come. Tell me if you get anything from this.

Thank you again

Your graphics card memory is throwing errors...


I also see an out of date driver:
Code:
iaStor	fffff880`0127f000	fffff880`0139b000	Thu Jun 04 19:53:40 2009 (4a287aa4)	000640d7		iaStor.sys
Update using the Intel® Driver Update Utility


Try updating/re-installing your graphics card drivers using the following method (they may be up to date already, but they could be corrupted and need re-installing):

Re-install or install the latest drivers for your display card. Your current drivers may be corrupt and/or outdated. Use the following method to re-install the drivers.
  1. Download the latest drivers for your display card(s)
  2. Click Start Menu
  3. Right Click My Computer/Computer
  4. Click Manage
  5. Click Device Manager from the list on the left
  6. Expand Display adapters
  7. Do the following for each adapter (in case you have multiple display cards)
    • Right click the adapter
    • Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
    • Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK
  8. Restart your computer after uninstalling drivers for all display cards
  9. Install the latest driver for the display cards once Windows starts

Alternatively:
  1. Login as an adminstrative user
  2. Download the latest drivers for your display card(s)
  3. Click Start Menu
  4. Click Control Panel
  5. Click Hardware and Sound
  6. Click Device Manager (the last link under Devices and Printers)
  7. Expand Display adapters
  8. Do the following for each adapter (in case you have multiple display cards)
    • Right click the adapter
    • Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
    • Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK
  9. Restart your computer after uninstalling drivers for all display cards
  10. Install the latest driver for the display cards once Windows starts


Also, install all Windows updates.


Run the graphics card memory test again for at least 7 passes once the graphics driver has been re-installed.

I've updated the graphic card driver many times. I also ran a new windows install 1-2months ago. all the drivers should be up to date. What driver do you see that is not up to date?

I can also add to the information. You asked about OC.
My system is not overclocked, but before i changed the PSU i had an error when booting the system (after it shuts off) which tells me that overcloking failed. This problem also happen 2-3 times after i changed the PSU.


Thank you again

iaStor.sys is dated Thu Jun 04 19:53:40 2009 which is pre-Windows 7. May or may not need updating (I believe there is a newer version, but I could be wrong), but you should check the intel update utility just in case.

The most recent crash was from March 8, 2012. It does not look like your most recent crash was recorded.

I suspect there is an issue with your graphics card based on the memory faults and you having already updated the driver many times. When you updated, did you delete the old driver software completely by putting a check in the box before hitting OK in the dialog that shows up after clicking uninstall?

Have you uninstalled all AMD software through the Start Menu -> Control panel -> Uninstall a program -> AMD Catalyst Install Manager or did you only install the drivers and not the software that can come with them.

Yes, i have done all that.

The last crash was also MEMORY_MANAGEMENT crash with the same error codes.

Could the crash be caused by the RAM i have installed?
i've lendt out one of the RAM pieces before, can it be the problem?
When i lendt it out i took out the rest of the RAM set tho (i have 2 RAM sets, 3x 2GB corsair + 3x 2GB corsair, same type and part number)

Win 7 is very sensitive about ram. Even exact make and model is sometimes not enough. The only way to assure compatibility is to buy all the ram in a single package.
