Windows 7: Recurring BSOD - Memory_Management (Faulty SSD?)

02 Dec 2012   #11

Windows 7 Professional 64bit + SP 1
 
 

Thanks again for bearing with this Marsmimar, I have tried to use the built in scan diagnostic and on two separate passes the test came back as clean, no problems were detected. If ram were the problem, would running an extended test reveal this or am I chasing a red herring in continuing to test RAM, (ram was my original target of choice when the system crashed back in May).

I also tried to run a repair installer for Windows 7 + SP 1 on both a burned DVD as well as the raw ISO on my SSD (3 times in both instances). Both attempts caused the following errors

"windows could not complete the installation, required files may be corrupted or missing"

Again, I am paraphrasing the error but the same error message was displayed on all 6 attempts with slightly different error codes which I can only assume relate the the percentage of completion when the installation failed as different files failed to copy across.

What other options are available to me? Are logs created when installations fail? I have performed another clean install previously to posting my crash concerns but upon re-installing I feel as though any problematic drivers or hardware would remain unchanged and I would be back at square 1.

thanks again for any help, this is a problem that appears to somewhat be out of my league. I'd be relieved to have it resolve to being a simple driver issue but as of late it is looking as though this is not likely the case.

Maybe. But it might not be definitive proof of bad RAM. Suppose your car is having possible engine problems. You take it to your local drag strip and run it at 120mph. The engine blows. Was the engine really bad or was too much stress the reason it failed? (Perhaps not the greatest analogy but the best I've got. )

From where did you get the ISO? At what speed did you burn it to DVD? Digital River is an official Microsoft download site. And many folks recommend the free ImgBurn at no more than 4x speed. Possible that your ISO and/or DVD are corrupt.

Possibly in Event Viewer but most of that info is unintelligible ... at least to me.

Certainly a possibility. But a repair install (while attempting to fix Windows 7 and preserving your user accounts, data, programs, system drivers, etc) will require you to reinstall Windows updates. Maybe, and I admit it's a big maybe, a fresh install of updates will also update those problematic drivers. And a repair install is a lot faster than a clean install. Last one I did was about 45 minutes. (Reinstalling updates was a lot longer because I only install a few at a time and reboot after each group.)
