Windows 7: Multiple Bsod Errors

10 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Multiple Bsod Errors

Hi All,

Really hoping you can assist me with my BSOD issues, This is a new system i've built and it's been nothing but problems.
Firstly, I have had continual bsods, random ones like Memory Management, Bad Pool header, and others I can't recall, I have formatted a few times now and each time I still get BSOD's.
I was using a pirated copy of windows, so Bought myself a license, still having no luck,
my Troubleshooting so far,
Have updated all my drivers with driverchecker all up to date.
Installed Windows 7 SP1, and all available Updates

Now i've tested my ram with memtest, and It had multiple errors if I had a single stick in slot 2 on it's own (I have 2 sticks of 4gb each) yet Together 8 passes no errors, I was told by
the shop that the 3rd slot of my motherboard is the actual first slot I know this sounds like it doesn't make sense
but i mean of the four dimm's my stick need to be in the 1 and 3 slots,

one of the bsod's previously mentionjed ha20xk or something similiar which i've ascertained is a creative driver. so my system specs.
Gigabyte P67a-ud3p-b3 Motherboard
Intel 2500k Cpu
Gainward GTX560
Creative xfi xtreme Music
brand new WD 1TB green hdd.

Using Windows 7 64bit Home Premium

so hopefully this info makes sense to you, I could really do with your help. it's driving me mad. Cheers

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

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.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Driver verifier

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.
