Windows 7: BSOD randomly occurs, including things such as steam and chrome

I still cannot access my computer, I will keep trying to get on in hope of accessing the dump files that are getting created on windows loading, just in case it will be more helpful for the diagnostic.

Hello Spidernat and thank you for your email.
  • Have you tried reinstalling Windows 7 with the disk the computer came with?
    • Go to BIOS and select it as first priority.
  • Are there any sort of beeps when you boot your computer?
  • Do you have any plugged in USB devices such as an Xbox controller, iPod etc.?
  • How far do you get at the boot? Are you able to get into safe-mode?

Best Regards,
Frederik

Hello Frederick, thanks for the very fast response!

I gave tried re installing windows 7 multiple times however I get an error when windows is extracting files during the installation process, it is also set as the priority in the bios.

There is no beeps when the system boots, however there is one beep once the system has completely shut down.

I have no USB devices connected, except my mouse. I have previously had my iPhone and a external hard drive plugged in previously, if that makes a difference.

When booting windows its very hit and miss. Booting normally generally results in a bsod after login or during windows loading, however sometimes I can get into windows. At start up it usually faces me with numerous crash notifications on things that didn't load correctly at start up. Sometimes I can get into safe mode with networking but it's just as hit and miss as normal mode is.

Thanks.

Alright thank you for this information.

BSOD Analyse

Looking at your bugcheck it's likely that a memory corruption event was triggered. Though a driver could be causing the memory to be borked, but we're usually suggesting a memory test before moving forward. Do a scan with Memtest86+. Memtest is a scanner that'll check your sticks for errors.

warning   Warning
Note that the below instructions may break your WARRANTY rules. If you're unsure check manuals, separated warranty papers, stickers on computer for secure permission.

To ensure that we'll know if it's the slots on the motherboard that's broken, or the sticks itself - we have a little procedure we'll recommend. Remove 1 stick, scan the other with Memtest in the current slot. After 7 passes, move the stick to another slot and scan, and so on and so forth until you've scanned all the sticks, and all the slots, one by one.

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

Code:
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: fffffa8c07385feb, memory referenced.
Arg2: 0000000000000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.
Arg3: fffff800030b2e85, If non-zero, the instruction address which referenced the bad memory
    address.
Arg4: 0000000000000005, (reserved)
Usual causes: Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS

Best Regards,
Frederik.

I'll get on that tomorrow!

Out of interest, wouldn't it be wise to run memtest first with all the sticks in, run 7 passes and see if there is any errors, then if there is proceed to do your intrustictions? Just wondering as if the hardware is indeed fine, the process could have been less time consuming.

Thanks again!

Whatever fits you. It might be a good idea, yes.
