Random BSOD after RIM BlackBerry Installation
Hello SevenForums. Long time no see.
Before we start this thread, I'd like to go back a few several months to my last few posts, where I was extremely frustrated. And out of the intense frustration I said in one of my posts that "I'd never come back". First of all, I'd like to make a sincere apology for that. It was a very frustrating time for me, as the BSODs would not stop.
So, I've had my computer in a "storage room" safe as I was at another location for 8 months. Finally, moved back into my fathers house, I contacted Virgin Media to reconnect my broadband. In addition to that, I thought...hmm, if I'm having broadband, why not get the full package and go Fibre Optic, have Phone line and TV. So, that's what I did. I've been back on my computer now for almost a week. Then from yesterday I started getting Blue Screen's again. I am uncertain if this is due to the Research In Motion software (BlackBerry) and EVGA Precision X being installed, however I have removed both of them to find out what is causing these crashes. The great issue gallops along, I cannot analyze my mini dumps myself, because Windows SDK fails to install. It says apparently that one of the files are already in existence on my system and therefore has terminated the installation process with the following "errors".

These 3 were related to memory management. Please run these two tests.
These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (cx05) 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.

I have 6GB RAM, 2x2GB Corsair Vengeance sticks running Dual Channel and one Corsair Dominator 1x2GB running in Single Channel. Whether it makes a difference, I have already done Memory tests with all 3 sticks of Memory and all reported no errors or hardware faults at all. I ran the basic Windows Memory Diagnostic first, then used Memtest86 the second time and spent almost 7 hours doing memory diagnostics tests before actually using all 3 sticks in my computer together. Because the sticks passed the memory tests, I started using them. My computer was stable and has worked perfectly fine. I had my PC running for 4 days with all 3 sticks in, and no problem at all. No BSODs whatsoever. The Blue Screens started when I installed the BlackBerry Desktop Manager and most probably EVGA Precision X.
I do not know what other program to use to monitor my Graphics Card temperature where I can do an automatic or manual Fan Control.

Those certainly look like memory errors to me. They report single-bit errors, and all during the first pass of testing. All of them look to be close to each other, so it appears to me to be a memory problem most certainly. Other causes can be motherboard (such as faulty, or memory is incompatible or not setup correctly), CPU or PSU.
No software you installed can alter the results of Memtest in any way. Most likely it was just by coincidence this happened to come up at the same time you installed the aforementioned software.
