Windows 7: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT and MEMORY_MANAGEMENT errors

Not even the logs I posted earlier tonight have Driver Verifier enabled? That's very strange. It says it's enabled, and lists whether drivers have been loaded or not when I use the display options. verifier /query also spits out a giant list of drivers.
I didn't enable it for Microsoft-provided drivers, as instructed in the tutorial. Is that related?


Also I feel really silly now. I realized earlier that I hadn't actually just tried using my old RAM sticks in their old slots. I thought I had tried this at the very beginning, but I never actually did. So I swapped them back in, and now I'm sitting here with no crash after 6 hours. It seems like something might actually be wrong with the new RAM (or the slots it was in) despite them passing memtest.

I'll leave the computer running overnight and see if it crashes. Then I'll swap back in my ATI graphics card and see if it still runs fine, and then start testing all my ram in different slots to see if I can pin down the faulty stick / slot. I'll keep the PCIe slot tip in mind too.

Thanks for the help; I'll post back if I figure it out or if everything goes wrong.

Thanks for the feedback.

Good spot on the RAM, hopefully all will go well now

Look forward to the result

In case it comes up later: When I was switching video cards this time, I dropped a screw into my power supply (*facepalm*) and had to disconnect it and carefully shake it upside down to get the screw out. The computer still boots and turns on so I don't think anything was damaged.

I uninstalled the Nvidia drivers, then swapped my ATI card back in. On the first boot with the ATI card, I got a BSOD I'd never seen before (0x000000C4 DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION) before I got to the login screen, I think. I definitely didn't log in but it may have gotten to the login screen before it crashed without me noticing.

So I booted into Safe mode, uninstalled the ATI drivers (which somehow got installed before I even logged in? Pretty sure I uninstalled them before swapping the cards the first time), and rebooted into normal mode to let the drivers install again. Then I rebooted a third time and nothing crashed, so here I am. Going to see if this stays stable for a while before moving on to testing my RAM.

I attached all the new minidumps I had since the last zip I uploaded. All but the most recent are from before I switched back to my old RAM sticks, but they're there for completeness' sake.

I was able to narrow the crashes down to one of the new sticks of RAM! I've been running with the other three for over a day now and everything works perfectly. Seems like that stick is bad even though it didn't fail memtest.

Thanks for the help, guys!
