Windows 7: Getting random BSODs excessively, memory management, win32k.sys, etc

Getting random BSODs excessively, memory management, win32k.sys, etc

I need your help kind readers, for the past few months I've been getting a large amount of BSODs such as memory management, irql_not_less_or_equal, win32k.sys, page fault in nonpaged area, etc. I've tried to solve the problem myself through reading a million and one forum posts, but my problem is so wide ranged that I simply don't stand a chance.

In the zip folder I have attached is the contents retrieved by the SF Diagnostic Tool. I need help in resolving these BSODs, thanks for your time.

Welcome to Seven Forums.

The cause noted is memory corruption.
This can be a problem with the RAM, RAM settings, or caused by a driver.

Can you fill in your system specs?
This program will help with the info gathering.

Age of your system?
Any hardware installed recently?
Any new apps installed?

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.

Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiIdentifyPfn+26f )

Your 8GB RAM may need some adjustments.

Can you download CPUZ and post a snip of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.
For posting the information , enter 'Snipping tool' in the Start button > Search box, hit enter. Select the area you want to post and save to a convenient place.

Have you been checking your 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.

Go to your BIOS and tell us what the CPU, RAM and the CPU integrated memory controller voltages are.
This is important in order to make RAM settings adjustments.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Specs: Windows 7 64bit, i5 2500k @ 3.3GHz, 8GB Dual-Channel DDR3 1333MHz (9-9-9-34) Mushkin Silverline, ASUS Pro Rev 3.1 mobo, Zotac GTX 570, 2TB Western Digital (FAEX) HDD, ASUS Xonar DS soundcard. My system is about 2 and a half years of age, I recently switched to a new case with all the same components. New apps that were installed include Steam games, CCleaner, almost every Auslogics product, and DriverUpdate.

Idle CPU temps are 29, 37, 28, 35 degrees Celsius for each core.
Full load temps are 47, 53, 51, 50 degress Celsius for each core.

I'll get the BIOS CPU, RAM, and CPU integreated memory controller voltages after this post.

The CPU voltage is about 1.120V and the RAM voltage is about 1.518V.
Now, I think the VCCIO voltage on my mobo is the integrated memory controller voltage, so the VCCIO voltage reads 1.065V. There's a second voltage on my mobo titled VCCSA, so in case I'm incorrect and this is actually the correct voltage, this one reads 0.925V.

My computer crashed again today with an irql_not_less_or_equal BSOD. BSODs occur daily, but aren't limited to just that one.

The CPU voltage is good.

Bump the RAM voltage to 1.550v.
The VCCIO Voltage is the IMC (integrated memory controller) voltage, bump this to 1.150v.

Change the RAM 'Command Rate' to 2T, in 'DRAM Timing Control'.

Save and Exit the BIOS.

Let us know if you get any more crashes.
The settings may need a little more adjusting.

Alright, I changed all the settings successfully. Had trouble finding the Command Rate, but it turned out be called DRAM Command Mode, their similar enough I suppose. If any other BSOD occurs, which is normally daily, I'll be sure to post back with a minidump. If nothing else occurs within the next few days, I'll be sure to post back and let you all know. Thanks a lot!

During light web browsing with google chrome, I got another BSOD. This time, it was one I've never had before. IRQL_GT_ZERO_AT_SYSTEM_SERVICE with the stop code 0x0000004A.

I have the sptd driver that's installed by Daemon Tools, and I've tried to get rid of it before because it may be the problem, but it will not uninstall.

Attached is the minidump of the crash.

Be sure to always (unless requested not to) include the full BSoD report files, there is a lot of useful information in those files.
If the dmp file had evrything needed it would be a simple one click to fix everything, sadly this is not the case.

Can you enter your system specs in the 'My System Specs' dropbox in the lower left corner of any of your posts?
This will help anyone that is trying to help you, they won't have to search through the thread looking for information.

What Anti-Virus are you using?
The vsserv.exe, is normally used by BitDefender and some other AVs. This can be caused by AV conflicts.
Have had other AVs installed previusly?
Where they completely removed by specific program removal apps?
Are you using any Acronis products?

Ok, I filled out my system specs. I've also included absolutely everything that the SF Diagnostic Tool could grab, if you need anything else just let me know. Again, thanks for the help.
