Windows 7: Constant BSOD during any activity, typically with ntoskrnl.sys

Constant BSOD during any activity, typically with ntoskrnl.sys

Hi everyone.

I've been fighting with this issue for what seems like forever at this point. I've been able to get by ignoring it or trying occasional tweaks, but after having it crash multiple times during my conquest of northern Europe in CK2 as the Empire of Scandinavia, well... My patience is shot.

These BSOD's tend to arise from ntoskrnl.exe, with the usual BCC being 3b or 1e. They can happen while I'm just using the Internet, they can happen when I'm playing CK2... Really any time my computer decides it's time to shit the bed. I've not been able to identify the underlying cause as it happens so randomly.

Here are the steps I've taken to try and resolve this:
  1. Downgrade driver from latest to 314.22 (read somewhere that it's more stable for my graphics card)
  2. Update NIC and wireless adapter drivers (had earlier issues with the network .sys)
  3. Run disc checks and Memtest, disc check found a few errors, Memtest was clean.
  4. Run Malwarebytes and Spybot in regular and safe mode, completely clean
  5. Upgraded my CPU cooler to the Coolermaster EVO 212 (this was mostly done because the stock was just crappy)
  6. Reset BIOS values

I'm just completely stumped. Please let me know if I can provide any further information; I would really love to get a definite answer or to have someone more experienced look over the logs to see if they can spot any issues. Whoever resolves this for me, the next child born to my dynasty will be named after you in-game (and I will post a screenshot to prove it).

BSOD ntoskrnl.exe, netwsw00.sys, all over the place.

Hi everyone.

Really any time my computer decides it's time to shit the bed. I've not been able to identify the underlying cause as it happens so randomly.

In addition, I have tried replacing the graphics card going from Nvidia to an equivalent ATI card, and the errors changed to implicate hal.dll and other, completely different systems, with error code 1e. These had occurred frequently in the past, but had died down recently.

  8. Swapped graphics cards.
