Windows 7: Frequent BSOD, Memory Management, Page Fault, Driver IRQL, etc..

The computer is a refurbished HP Pavilion a6130n that I bought in November of 2007.

The speccy program shows there are 4 sticks of RAM. I attached the screenshot. There are two of each of the sizes shown.
Attachment 240815

I've never changed any of the hardware parts.

I always had an external HD plugged into the back, but was getting BSOD without it plugged in. Also usually plugged into a front USB was a FiiO E10 which is a headphone amp/DAC.

Thanks,
Kevin

Alright.

The dump you uploaded with verifier enabled did not reveal any specific driver. The Bugcheck was BE and has memory listed in its usual causes.

Quote:
STOP 0x000000BE: ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_READONLY_MEMORY
Usual causes: Device driver, Memory
So what I'd do is test how the computer works on each stick of ram. Test one stick in different slots of the motherboard, see whether it is stable or freezing or blue screen. Do the same with the rest of the sticks, test each in different slots. May be time consuming but this is a good way to test the sticks and sometimes memtest does not show errors.

Let us know the results.

When you say test do you mean just run the computer for a few minutes with only one RAM stick or is there something specific I need to do.

Sorry. I mean use the computer the way you usually do with one RAM stick see if it BSOD, freezes or crashes..

If one of the RAM sticks works in all 4 slots do I need to continue testing all slots?

Tested all 4 of the RAM sticks and got no BSODs.

The last BSOD was when I started the driver verifier...

Thanks for the update.

Is verifier enabled or disabled now? Enable it for another 24 hours and upload all the dumps you get.

Can you check how the system performs in safe mode?

The verifier tutorial says to only check the non-microsoft drviers. Should I select all?

You should do exactly as the tutorial says. Not otherwise as that may cause problems.

All, I built my PC in 2010. Ever since I have been having intermittent BSOD problems. I've found that if I put the computer to sleep instead of shutting down, when it boots stable, it will remain stable. Otherwise I have BSOD crashes 5-20 minutes after booting. I've run memtest86+ after crashes...
