Windows 7: Random BSOD's, mainly ntoskrnl.exe but also other errors.

Random BSOD's, mainly ntoskrnl.exe but also other errors.

Hello.

I've had BSOD's going on for a while and I've had no idea why until recently when i found out it was because of a .sys file called atikmpag.sys was failing. I solved that by installing new drivers for my graphics card. Then i was "BSOD-free" for about twelve hours until this new ntoskrnl.exe started failing on me aswell. I have no idea how to fix this and I'd like some help with it! The BSOD's come mostly while playing a game for instance WoW. I can sometimes play non-stop for hours, and sometimes it just BSOD on login. Sometimes the whole screen just go blurry and it doesn't go to a BSOD, but it just freezes the whole computer. As I said, I've got no idea how to fix this.

I've uploaded the minidumps from last two days of BSOD's.

I hope that You can help me. I would appreciate it very much!

Upload a screenshot using:
CrystalDiskInfo
For how to upload a screenshot or file, read here

Test your Hard Drive by running:
Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure
Reduce items at start up:
Performing a Clean Startup in Windows 7

Add, or Remove Startup Programs in Windows 7
Your Antivirus software is basically whats just needed there.

Monitor hardware temperature with system monitoring software like Speccy or HWMonitor:
Piriform - Speccy

CPUID - HWMonitor
Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+:
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial "If you have errors"
Take 10 passes to make sure the RAM is error free

Let us know the results.

Screenshot of CrystalDiskInfo is attached.

Hard Drive results: "Found bad sectors that may be repairable" and when i clicked repair this came up: "Error was detected while repairing bad sectors."

Only MSE is now enabled on start up.

Attached a screenshot of the CPUID HWMonitor's results.

Ran memtest86 10 passes. No errors.

Usual causes: Memory, Paging file corruption, File system, Hard drive, Cabling, Virus infection, Improperly seated cards, BIOS, Bad motherboard, Missing Service Pack

STOP 0x000000F4: CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION BSOD Index
Usual causes:

F4 does not have any usual causes but still related to storage in almost all threads we've solved up to now.

Based on this I am giving you a few links you could go through for a possible solution:

Windows Defender Offline: How to Use Windows Defender Offline

Let us know your findings, good luck.

In the resulting window, there are three sliders in the left. Drag them to the ultimate left, and notice the values at the right side are converting to zeros.


Now click the apply button, and notice that the caution is gone.

After these, observe the situation that it is causing more BSODs or not.

I did the thing with CrystalDiscInfo and didn't notice any difference. It still BSOD as frequently as before. I'll try to find another hard drive to test if it still BSOD with a completely different hard drive. If it doesn't, I'll just buy a new hard drive. If it still BSOD even with another hard drive, I'm left clueless. I'll keep You posted.

Have you tested your hard drive with the other tools?

Would you like to consider a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 before a getting a new hard drive.

Yes, I would like to try a clean reinstall of windows. However I'll do as you suggest and test my hard drive with the other tools first.
