Random BSOD, No clue and no pattern?

Hey everyone!

I used to get BSODs from a poor quality Hitachi Hard drive that HP put in so I swapped it out for a better quality Seagate, but I've gotten 2 or 3 BSODs since I swapped them maybe 2-3 weeks ago.

No clue why they happen, last one happened when the computer was just running and I had iTunes playing.

Running a Windows 7 x64-bit Home Premium

Its an:

HP Pavilion dv6t Entertainment PC

2nd generation Intel Dual Core i5-2410M (2.3 GHz, 3MB L3 Cache) with Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz
1GB GDDR5 Radeon HD 6490M Graphics [HDMI, VGA]
6GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm) (4GB stick and 2GB stick)
500GB 7200RPM Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
Intel 802.11b/g/n WLAN and Bluetooth with Wireless Display Support

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

BugCheck 1000007E, {ffffffffc0000005, fffff80002cd1480, fffff880035a7dc8, fffff880035a7620}

Probably caused by : fvevol.sys ( fvevol!FveFilterDeviceControl+1d0 )
Driver Reference Table - fvevol.sys

The dump shows that you have a bitlocker/drive encription app, disable/stop using them if you have any.

One of the dump shows memory corruption: Run memtest86+ for 8 passes at least.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Enable Driver verifier to rule out buggy drivers.

To be honest I don't know what a bitlocker/drive encription app is.
To my knowledge, I haven't installed or used anything to encrypt my drive.

Could it be something HP is running without me knowing?

I will get right on the memtest and verifier as soon as possible!


Thank you very much for the reply!!

Well, My brother bought me ram for my Laptop for my bday.


so, now im running brand new Crucial ram.
an 8GB DDR3 1333MHz stick
and a 4GB DDR3 1333MHz stick


As for verifier, im running it now for 5 hours, and nothing bad so far!
(Sorry for the late replies, working 2 jobs and going to school full time can get distracting!)

Really appreciate the help though


I'm guessing that I should run Verifier for the whole day if not more?

Hey,

Happy birthday!

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.
