Windows 7: Daily BSOD 0x00000109

Daily BSOD 0x00000109

I'm facing BSOD's on my computer, they occur daily.
I tried different things to fix it (like: other antivirus software, updating drivers), I also tested my memory with Memtest but the BSODs still occur and I cant seem to find the problem here.
See the attachment for the latest minidumps, hopefully you guys are able to help.

Welcome
The reports give slight hints about hardware but drivers are, also, mentioned, No results are definitive. Lets test drivers and then move on to hardware if required.

Driver Verifier
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. 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 (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Allright, I followed your procedure and got a BSOD (the same 109) in 15-30 minutes. This was when using the computer for basic things, browsing in Firefox and some music in Winamp.

I attached the minidump.

Since we did not run for 36 hours we may go back, but for now try this
Run for 8 passes.
Then test each stick in a good slot for 6 passes.
If you have dual channel, the results may be incorrect, if shows pass.

I used memtest to test the 2 sticks together and each one separate. It passed without errors.
Since Verifier was still active my pc crashed again, see the minidumps in the attachments - I disabled Verifier for now.

Allow me to show you what we are up against. I have highlighted that the verifier was enabled and the analysis, makes things difficult.
Im leaing toward hardware.

CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION (109)
This bugcheck is generated when the kernel detects that critical kernel code or
data have been corrupted. There are generally three causes for a corruption:
1) A driver has inadvertently or deliberately modified critical kernel code
 or data. See Patching Policy for x64-Based Systems
2) A developer attempted to set a normal kernel breakpoint using a kernel
 debugger that was not attached when the system was booted. Normal breakpoints,
 "bp", can only be set if the debugger is attached at boot time. Hardware
 breakpoints, "ba", can be set at any time.
3) A hardware corruption occurred, e.g. failing RAM holding kernel code or data.

Without guidance from the reports and a pass for drivers. We have to go into hardware.
Go to the website of your hard drive manufacturer and test the drive.

If over clocking, restore default settings

You're saying the drivers passed the verifier?

The computer is not OCed and I checked the harddrive: no errors (I also used another hdd before and also faced the same issue).

By the way: I noticed that after an BSOD + reboot, the USB wifi stick is not recognised. Maybe that's helpful?

Did you run for 36hours?

No, because in that situation I would need to log in every hour or so: too many BSODs and reboots.

Thats the way the Verifier works. If you get many BSODs try to leave on for 24 hours. Then submit all the BSOD reports. We will update all drivers that are caused by the verifier.
