Windows 7: Another Blue Screen - ntoskrnl.exe

Another Blue Screen - ntoskrnl.exe

Hello everyone,

This is my first post here. I tried to follow the posting guidelines as best I could. The zip for my dump files should be attached. If you need additional information please let me know.

A while back I started getting blue screen crashes. Once a day usually... sometimes even less. It seems to be completely random. I have yet to figure out what triggers it. At first, I never really payed attention to it as I had planned on reformatting and installing a fresh copy of windows soon, anyhow. After reinstalling I continued to get the blue screens. It was at this point that I starting doing research and learned how to access the dump files to help me figure out what the problem is.

It seems as though each crash is being caused by the same file - "ntoskrnl.exe"

A quick google searched confirmed that I was not alone. It seems that this particular file gives a lot of folks problems. I found that in most cases the problem seemed to be associated with the hard drive or memory.

I tested my hard drive using the suggested software on the manufacturers website - it passed. I also tested my memory for about 7 hours using memory test - 0 errors.

I am completely lost at this point. I'm hopping you guys can look at the dump files and give me some much needed advice.

Thank you in advance.

Video Card - Stress Test with FurmarkMonitor your temps with Speccy during this testVideo 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.

There appears to be no problem with the MGADiag report.

I ran the video card stress test for about 30 mins. What am I looking for exactly? I can't seem to find the reports that it should be logging.

6. Watch for artifacts on the screen, and keep an eye on the temperature log. If you see artifacts, or the temperature levels out, stop the test.

As suggested...

I did the video card stress test for about 30 minutes. I didn't notice any artifacts and the temperature stayed around 78C.

I tested the video card memory for a total of 21 passes with 0 errors.

I tested my memory using memtest all night last night with 0 errors. Also, today, I tested the memory using memtest86+ on a thumb drive. I only got about 5 passes instead of the suggested 8 but still found no errors. I can let more test run tonight if you guys think it is necessary.

Any other thoughts? Could it possibly be a wireless network adapter? That's the only new piece of hardware I've got in a very long time. I don't recall if they blue screens started before or after.

Probably. You could disable that and see if the BSOD-s occur.

So I disabled AVG 2013 and my computer has been running non-stop since, without a BSOD (nearly 3 days)

Could that possibly be what was causing it? I searched google but didn't find any results of other people having the same issue.
