Windows 7: Random BSOD

Random BSOD

Been dealing with this for the past 2 months. One memory stick failed memtest, RMA'd, and harddrive failed Seatools, RMA'd. Still getting problems...

Today - uninstalled and reinstalled graphics drivers, USB drivers, and mouse drivers. Still getting random BSOD and usually nothing very taxing (surfing, working in Word/Excel documents, etc.). I do not play games on here anymore as I never know when things are going to crash.

Attached is the requested dump file along with CPU-Z text file. Anything else, please let me know. Included 4 minidumps I have gotten this afternoon, with differing codes. Anything else you need, please let me know.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello mp1cass0 and welcome to Seven Forums.

From the dmp files you've submitted it still appears to be a memory related issue which led to a stop 0x05A "critical service failed" issue. I know you've RMAed your memory sticks but have you tested each individual slot? Also, have you checked for damaged or corrupt system files? You can run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You may also want to run through these troubleshooting steps, particularly the part about running a clean boot (step 3).

MmUnlockPages twice with the same list, etc).  If a kernel debugger is
available get the stack trace.

Tried to run sfcnow twice and got BSOD's both times. Going to run memtest+ today and test out the memory cards. Once I have done (or at least attempted multiple times), will repost what I find, along with any dmp files created.

Take as much time as you need. I'll keep monitoring this thread.

It's my understanding that memtest may not distinguish between a bad memory stick and a bad slot. If I remember correctly you have 8GB RAM installed. If the motherboard has only two slots and you're running (2 x 4GB) RAM, put one 4GB stick in slot one. Boot your computer. If it boots the stick and slot are probably good. Test the remaining stick. If they both check out, test slot two the same way, one stick at a time.

If you have 4 slots and you're running (2 x 4GB) RAM it's a bit more complicated. Depending on the mobo, slots 1 and 3 may be the primary slots for two sticks rather than slots 1 and 2. Check the mobo owners manual for proper configuration. But you should still be able to check individual sticks in slot one and dual sticks in slots 1 and 3 or 2 and 4 (or whichever slots are paired together.)

ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 - 4 slots on motherboard. Planning to run 2 slots together, then if they fail, will go 1-by-1. Find a slot/stick that does not fail and use that as my reference, testing each slot/each stick.

Ran SFC and keeps telling me "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them." Will run repair from Windows disc and report back findings as they come.

Thanks in advance for all of your help!

Ran repair, 1st time said it found and fixed corrupted files, 2nd time, no problems found. 2 passes complete on memtest, 80% done on 3rd, no problems on slots 1&3. Going to do 7 passes unless you suggest otherwise.

Thanks in advance.

The folks on this Forum most experienced with Memtest usually recommend that it run overnight. That seems to give it about 8 passes. I think 7 passes should be a pretty good indicator.

11 passes on slots 1&3, with no errors. Switching to 2&4 and letting it run all day/night as well to see. Will report findings tomorrow.

Update - kept getting BSOD, freezes of my keyboard/USB, and loss of internet. Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers for mouse/keyboard/network card, with no improvement. Did a clean install of Windows and have added everything back in other than phone software (iTunes and Android SDK).

Attached is requested file. To date, memtest has only been used on slots 1&3, with no problems (recommended slots). Should I also try running on 2&4, just to see?

Just to make sure I'm understanding correctly, even after doing a clean install you're still getting BSODs?

I'm going to ask some more folks for their input. Perhaps they'll see something I missed. It may take a while due to different time zones but hang in there.
