Windows 7: BSODs constantly.

BSODs constantly.

Hey there, I have been having problems with BSOD for a couple of months now.

I've brought it into the store twice where I had it built, and still they have not been able to fix it.

The first time they changed the video card, which seemed to help the problem significantly, however I am still having issues.

Just today I have changed the RAM from what I was using, to new RAM, and still having problems. The minidumps from April 3/4 are with the new RAM in.

I've included the minidumps of the past 5 crashes which have happened over march 30-10 minutes again.

Any help is appreciated thank you.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (`c0000005) (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.




Memtest.
Quote:
*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

Quote:
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/Win7 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 System File Check.
Option 2.

If SFC could not fix something, then run the command again to see if it may be able to the next time.
Sometimes it may take running the sfc /scannow command 3 or more times to completely fix everything that it's able to.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Besides running the system file check please un-install BCU.exe (the browser configuration utility) as it has problems on some win 7 systems.

Sorry, won't bump again!

I ran the SFC, said it found no violations.

How do I uninstall BCU.exe? (sorry I'm a complete computer noob) xD

BSODs constantly regardless of current computer activity.
It is a computer that I built myself and it has constantly blue screened on me since it was built. Sometimes it will go a couple days in between and other times it will just be one after another after it reboots itself. I believe I correctly attached the dump files. Any help would be appreciative.
