Windows 7: Various BSODS every few days, playing MW3, Halo 2, etc

Various BSODS every few days, playing MW3, Halo 2, etc

Hi everyone,

My new personally built PC has me baffled, I'm in no way a noob when it comes to PCs having broken and fixed multitudes in the past, and a quick Google Search with any BSOD code would set me off fixing anything.

But lately I have been having multiple, different BSODS, one every two days or so:
SYSTEM SERVICE EXCEPTION
DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL
PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA

minidumps etc attached, I suspect RAM/Graphics card problem maybe?

Windows 7 Ultimate X64
Core i5-2500k
P67a GD53
4GB OCZ old ram that isn't designed for P67 but should work by all means
Radeon HD5870 1GB

I upped the RAM voltage/IO voltage to prevent previous BSODs that have pretty much gone now:
CPU IO: 1.15v
DRAM Voltage: 1.55v
at CAS7, 1066MHz.

I ran memtest all night a month or so back and all was fine, not changed anything since then.

Any help?
First post, forgive me if I overlooked anything

Edit: yes i read the "before posting BSOD" thread and adhered to it (I think..)

No DMP's included in upload. Please try this method.



We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP


We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.


You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:
Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:
Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Okay thanks I'll do that.

I think part of the reason there are no dumps may be that usually when the bsod happens it sits there for a few seconds saying "preparing memory dump" or something at the bottom, until I get bored and manually restart the computer.

It may be I don't give it enough time for the dump to complete. I did turn off automatic restart on system failure, because usually then the bsods would usually flash up so fast I wouldn't have time to read the error message.

I'll add the required info in just a bit.

updated with system information.

There was nothing in the minidump folder (within Windows folder).

The save dump setting was set to full dump, not minidump, thats probably why. The next time I experience a BSOD I'll be sure to upload the dumps

Shouldn't be more than a day or two
