Windows 7: Random BSOD on fresh installed Desktop: (ntoskrnl.exe)

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Random BSOD on fresh installed Desktop: (ntoskrnl.exe)

I have been having random BSOD since I have re-installed my Desktop (3 Weeks ago). Before that, my system has been running "perfectly" since 2 years.

- Only changes have been a second SSD and also a new HDD.
- I used the same drivers for the Motherboard again (from CD) - perhaps i should update them some time? Other Drivers should be up to date. It still may be a driver-problem, though.

I performed a full-scan with MSE and in addition downloaded Malwarebytes and did another full-scan - found nothing. SFC /scannown found nothing either. Memtest86+ ran clean, too.

I'd be very grateful, if someone could take a look at this for me.
Minidumps and other files from SF_Diagnostic_Tool should be attachet. For further questions I shall be avaliable!

Thanks in advance.

Hello jroot.

All your recent BSODs are BugCheck 4E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT. The crash dumps are somehow silent about the probable causes, but some Ntfs, fltmgr and fileinfo errors are there. In such a situation, first you try to update your SSD's firmware.
Uninstall Marvel SCSI drivers. Those are poorly coded and hence problematic.
Start Menu\Programs\Marvell\91xx driver
When done. follow this guide to clean up the leftover:
You are overclocked.
CPUID:        "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz"
MaxSpeed:     3400
CurrentSpeed: 3502
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings. Also set the BIOS to default, too.
How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS)

Moreover, the BIOS is old.
BiosVersion = 0706
BiosReleaseDate = 08/05/2011
As you are using SSDs, you need to use an updated BIOS. Get the BIOS Version 3603(Only for Win7 & Win8, dated 2012/11/27 from ASUS - P8Z68-V PRO (motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO).

Typically caused by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists (ie: calling
MmUnlockPages twice with the same list, etc).  If a kernel debugger is
available get the stack trace.

Hi Arc

Thank you very much for looking into this for me!
I'll follow your well described instructions ASAP.

I was aware of the old BIOS version, but my lazy opinion was not to change a running / working system.
Better use the BSOD as excuse to get things right!

As for the overclocking - I was not aware, my CPU has been overclocked. Could that just have been my CPU running in "turbo-mode"? Intel core i7 2600K - max Thurbo Frequency

Nevertheless, thanks again for the good tipps! I'll keep you posted.

Kind regards,

As a test, you may disable turbo made. For a crashing system, it is better to use the hardware at default clock settings.

I suggested the BIOS update, as it is needed to run the SSDs properly. A properly running SSD needs the combination or recent firmware, BIOS and storage controller. But if you are reluctant (I can understand your point) you may keep it on pending
