Windows 7: Random BSOD's, seems to have to do with disk activity

Random BSOD's, seems to have to do with disk activity

Hi all,

I've been getting BSOD's for a while now. They mostly seem to happen when I'm processing/copying large amounts of files. It crashed when intellisense was parsing files in VS2010, and also crashes when I check out code. Rather frustrating.

I have a Kingston SSD that my OS is installed on, if that might be part of the problem, but I applied the most recent firmware upgrade for it. I *think* all the drivers are up to date.

Looks to be mainly ntoskrnl.sys and once fltmgr.sys? I had one crash from ataport.sys, but I think that was before I installed all the drivers fully, so I didn't include that one.

Everything before today was giving me PFN_LIST_CORRUPT, but I got a PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA one today.


Any suggestions? Minidumps are attached (I couldn't get the dump application to output). Thanks!

Hello bluemouse, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Looking at your dump files, it appears that your BSODs may be from bad/corrupted memory (RAM).

I'm a bit new with debugging BSODs, but for now you might use the tutorial below run Memtest86+ at boot to test your RAM to see if they may be bad or not.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (50)
Invalid system memory was referenced.  This cannot be protected by try-except,
it must be protected by a Probe.  Typically the address is just plain bad or it
is pointing at freed memory.
Arguments:
Arg1: fffffbd7e300001b, memory referenced.
Arg2: 0000000000000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.
Arg3: fffff80002a70d7f, If non-zero, the instruction address which referenced the bad memory
 address.
Arg4: 0000000000000007, (reserved)

PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (4e)
Typically caused by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists (ie: calling
MmUnlockPages twice with the same list, etc).  If a kernel debugger is
available get the stack trace.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000007, A driver has unlocked a page more times than it locked it
Arg2: 00000000001f6724, page frame number
Arg3: 000000000001f04f, current share count
Arg4: 0000000000000000, 0
