Windows 7: Frequent BSOD crashes

More and more problems

Upon restart, there was another BSOD, a CHKDSK ran, changing security settings (? too fast) on all files. Now the events log is still very messy, although it seems I may not have fixed the Windows verifier, which originally came up as item 10, and is still appearing even after the fix Jonathan advised earlier. Here's a new Events Viewer. I am getting very fed up with Windows 7-64. It seems like a heap of rubbish to me!!! Even after a second clean install, it is full of error messages and crashes.
Oh, that Windows error message was not error 10. I see it now appears to be fixed. Now running Prime95 second test.

Now I am running another test, and it seems worker 4 has stoppped after test 1, but with no errors. Others are on #9.
Restarted and CPU4 doesn't want to play games. This is on the Torture Test.

Well, I'm afraid Prime95 started getting all cobbled up and I can't seem to get it back to running normally, so will give up on that. As far as I can see the CPU seems to be running OK although am a bit puzzled why core 4 didn't want to join in the fun.
So far I have spent about 6 hours today, and have gotten absolutely nowhere at all. Seriously, I wish I had stuck to XP. If only I could get this W7-64 reinstall to START working properly i might be able to get on with life! @@@##$#@!@#

Surely a clean install after reformatting drive and all shouldn't craete a mess like this.

Cannot get Memtest86 to run. My MB will only run from HD or CD. Created CD on Mac and it was nbg. The absolute mishmash of errors in the events log has got me stumped. Even though I have twice done a clean reinstal, Windows 7 comes up with constant errors, BSOD's, and all sorts of rubbish. Mac OSX is so far ahead of this. I just don't know what to do next. I have wasted days and days on this and nothing works.
HELP
ANYONE?
PLEASE?

Am just going to have to reinstall for third time, but I suspect it will be rubbish all over again. Will remain hopeful for a little longer in case someone can help.

Patience mate...we can't always reply to threads instantly, especially while we're sleeping.

Don't worry about clean installing any more...it's not going to help. You have a hardware problem apparently, and it will keep showing up no matter what OS you use (XP, Vista, 7, 8, Linux).

Macs should be able to burns ISOs to discs natively; I've done it myself a few times. Download the ISO from the Memtest86 link, and then follow these directions:

Mac Tip: How to burn an .iso or .dmg file to disc

Run Memtest86 to help narrow down which piece of hardware is faulty.

Thanks Jonathan. Was about to go to bed (10 pm Monday here). Have begun the Memtest86. So far no errors (10 minutes). Will leave it on overnight, and look at it in 8/9 hours time. The BSOD message I have been getting is too quick to get info, but it begins 'Page fault in non-paged area'.

Yeah, we're looking at either a RAM or CPU problem, most likely. If Memtest86 fails to show errors, we'll pick up Prime95 again and do some more observational testing to try to figure out which.

Not a good sign that prime95 failed.
What were your CPU core temps when you ran prime95?

Have you been checking your CPU core temperatures?
Use Real Temp , to check the CPU temps when at idle, under load and/or testing.
Let us know the minimum and maximum temps you get.
Use Real Temp when running any applications from the Windows OS.
The max CPU core temp from Intel is 77.6C, if your CPU goes above this temp you should stop the test and let us know.


After you run memtest86+ for 7 full passes, overnight, let us know the results.
You can stop the test if you get any errors, one error is too many.

Then you can run the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool.
Be sure to monitor the CPU core temps with Real temp while running this test.
