Windows 7: BSOD Before and After Clean Win7 Install

BSOD Before and After Clean Win7 Install

Hi all,

I do a fresh install of Windows 7 every 6 months or so. I started getting BSOD a little over a month ago after 6 months of no problems. I have not installed any new programs for at least 2 months before the BSOD started. This is the first time I have gotten a BSOD on this laptop ever. I have been getting a BSOD about twice a week. They seemed to happen randomly: while playing games, surfing the web, streaming video, running MSE antivirus. I ran memtest86 for about a dozen passes with no errors. I got a SSD yesterday and I was hoping the BSOD would go away after a fresh install. After installing Windows 7, SP1, and drivers, I did windows updates. They downloaded fine, but as soon as they started installing, I got a BSOD for memory management. I tried installing the updates again and got a BSOD for irql not less or equal.

I appreciate any help, thanks!

Hello & Welcome to SF.

Hard to say anything with one dump file as it still points towards memory being the issue.

Please run memtest again in the following manner:

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
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.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

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

I ran memtest for each of the two sticks alone in each of the two ram slots, like the instructions said, for 10-12 passes and it reported no errors. I got another bsod earlier right as I was restarting my laptop. When the bsod came up, my laptop restarted almost immediately and it didn't dump any of the crash info. I'm starting to get scared that it's gonna be a problem that I can't fix and I'll have to get a new laptop.

I got another bsod as I was trying to do windows update again. It appears to be stuck on the screen and the "dumping physical memory to disk" is stuck at 15. It's for memory management and the stop says 0x0000001A (0x0000000000005003, 0xFFFFF70001080000, 0x0000000000000566, 0x0000056800008AC).

And another bsod while doing windows updates. This time it's irql not less or equal and it appears to be stuck again at "collecting data for crash dump." The stop says 0x0000000A (0xFFFFF80082F0D918, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFF80002CE2BA5)

Had another BSOD. Just rebooted my laptop and then left the room to take care of some stuff. When I came back, my laptop had rebooted and I found that dialogue box saying there was a crash and a new minidump. I have attached it.

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
Full tutorial here:Disk Check on your hard drive for file system errors and bad sectors on it:Reduce items at start-up. Nothing except anti-virus is required plus improves the time for logging in windows.
Daemon Tools:

Please uninstall DAEMON Tools. It uses a driver called sptd.sys which is known to cause BSODs in Windows 7. Uninstall the software using Add/Remove Programs. Reboot the system. Once the program is uninstalled, run sptd.sys uninstaller to remove the driver from your system.

As an alternative, many people recommend the use of Total Mounter or Magic ISO

I have the latest SSD firmware, BIOS, and chipset drivers. I'm not sure about the HD controller drivers/SATA drivers, but if it's the thing listed under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers in device manager, then I have the latest drivers for that too. I just tried doing a system file check and got a bsod. I don't know if you wanted everything that the SF diagnostic tool pulls, but I attached just the minidump from the latest bsod.
