Windows 7: BSOD started with BF3, now getting 0x0000001a error

BSOD started with BF3, now getting 0x0000001a error

The BSOD's started once with BF3 and randomly occurred even when I wasn't even playing the game.

But it stopped for a while and then just recently started happening again.

There have been different types of BSODs happening; but it mostly started happening after I installed the Video Card.

The diagnostics file is attached.

Please help.

Thanks.

Welcome to SevenForums.

Re-seat the video card and RAM sticks.

Reinstall video drivers:

METHOD:
Quote:
Click on the Start ► Control Panel ► Programs ► Uninstall a program ► Uninstall everything related to NVIDIA and restart the system. Delete remnants of its drivers/older drivers using Driver Fusion/Sweeper

Link: NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Automatically Detect NVIDIA Products
Video Card - Stress Test with FurmarkMonitor your temps with Speccy during these testsVideo Card - Memory Test (For 20 passes)Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.
information   Information
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Tip   Tip
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.


Software:

System Optimisers

Please remove the following software
Code:
  • Start Menu\Programs\Free Window Registry Repair Public:Start Menu\Programs\Free Window Registry Repair Public
These programs tend to cause BSOD-s. The windows 7 operating system does not require these registry cleaning software. They often tune-down rather than tune-up and can wreck the OS beyond repair. Microsoft have improved Windows 7 significantly and it is much better at organising and optimising itself than its predecessors. Check this, this and this thread for evidence.

If you feel the need to use a registry cleaning or optimisation software, most of us recommend the use of CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download but make sure you back up the registry before making letting ccleaner delete anything.

AVG is not the best security software. Please uninstall it for testing purpose:Microsoft Security Essentials.
Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other antiviruses/internet security software. It is free and lightweight:-
warning   Warning
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.


Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.

Perform a System File Check:
  1. Click on the start
  2. Type CMD on Search
  3. Left click and Run as Administrator
  4. Type SFC /scannow

I will try these other steps; but I had started the Memory Test over night and it's safe to say that my RAM is an issue.

It's been running for 7+ hours and I have 3 pass and 47872 Errors.

How many sticks of RAM do you have?
How many sticks are you testing with now?

You will have to test them individually to identify the faulty stick of RAM.

One of my RAM sticks has a lot of errors; I'm going to follow the above procedures just to test the rest of my system; but I think this is the reason.

Remember to test mobo slots and sticks if you get a bad stick try it in other slots just in case
