Windows 7: BSOD Keeps Happening Every Night.

I can see it triggering it, yes. But being the root cause? Not sure, but probably unlikely. It sounds as if when you place Firefox cache in RAM, it can grow to an extent where it's hitting bad RAM that normally would not be reached. There may also just be bugs in Firefox for this setup, or the cache may be overextending its boundaries and trying to fill up more RAM than is permitted. Try opening Task Manager and go to the Performance tab and watch it periodically as you use Firefox. If Firefox crashes check to see if the amount of RAM used up total is high (75%+).

I'm sorry for holding things up for ya, skip, but when I thought I'd have enough time to look at this things have come up. I unfortunately also won't be able to take a look at it over the weekend, so it'll have to be at Monday the earliest. Just leave Driver Verifier and if it does what you said it did before your system will keep stable. If your system is still unstable and BSODs with DV on, then we might have a fighting chance.

Btw, I don't recall that you reported back on those hardware tests I recommended on Page 3. Why don't you run through those while we wait, since it'll take a couple nights to get through em.

No problem. Should I run those tests with DV on?

Hi, did you manage to run the tests, despite me being unable to get back with you on it to answer your question? Also, I won't be able to check the file out today, busy busy. I might be able too tomorrow or Wednesday if these new systems don't come in that I have to install.

I haven't had time to run the tests either. I needed this desktop up and running this weekend for a project.

Ok, just tried running the Prime95 Torture Test - Blend.

My computer rebooted after a few minutes. Tried it three times and each time, my computer would reboot. The third time this happened, there was a dump file created along with the attached.

Tried to run the Torture Test - In-place large FFTs.

Ran it twice. The first time, there was a BSOD a few minutes after starting the test. The second time, tests were completing, but experiencing errors.

I've attached the files from the BSOD that occurred during the first large FFT test.

Every test I ran, DV was on.

Getting ready to just dump this build and go with a new board and CPU. I've mem-tested this RAM for more than 24 hours straight too with no errors detected.

MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSOD during the night
I woke up to find Windows saying it closed unexpectedly with a BSOD. I am not sure what caused it, though WhoCrashed said MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. Besides crashing, the BSOD, I think, also messed up Steam's file in a recognized way. Dunno if that helps. Attached is the zip with requirements by the...
