Windows 7: BSOD: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT and IRQL_LIST_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

BSOD: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT and IRQL_LIST_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Hello, I've just built a computer on Wednesday and have been waiting to build this computer for years. I don't know what's causing these 2 BSODS; I've gotten 2 PFN_LIST_CORRUPT and 1 IRQL_LIST_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

I believe that it's the RAM causing the BSODs, but I'm not sure if I should get it replaced yet or not without confirming that it is the RAM. I will be attaching both Minidump files in a RAR at the end of the post. "WhoCrashed" is a program that tells me that 2 of the 3 BSODs were probably caused by notskrnl.exe and that one was caused by ntkrnlmp.exe.

The computer never BSODs when just idling or when using low memory usage programs - Google Chrome, Raidcall, etc. Whenever I try to run games, the games will either give me an APPCRASH or a BSOD along with the crash around ~20 minutes into gameplay. The only game that hasn't crashed is Team Fortress 2, I was able to play for about 2 hours.

Last time I installed Windows 7 on this computer (this is the 2nd installation) I installed drivers from disks that came with the motherboard and graphics card and that caused way more BSODs so this is a clean install only with drivers from the websites of each of the manufacturers, and so far has caused many less BSODs. Last install I ran a CHKDSK which found no problems. I have yet to run memtest.

If anyone can help, that would be much appreciated. I've been wanting a good gaming PC for years now, and I can't even play games...

Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Currently downloading SP1 from the Microsoft Website, could not download via Windows Update as it says my version of Windows is not genuine. Working on resolving that. Attached is the MSINFO you requested.

Here's a part list if you want to check if my parts are compatible:


Motherboard: MSI 760GM-P34(FX) Micro ATX AM3+
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 4GB Superclocked
Processor: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
RAM: G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866
PSU: Cooler Master i-Series - 500W Power Supply with 80 PLUS Bronze Certification



EDIT: Resolved Windows genuine problem, will be able to download from Windows Update now.
EDIT 2: Installed "important" Windows Updates. 2 were unable to install:
  • Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1 on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-bbased Systems (KB2656410)
  • Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2808735)

I will post another system grab.

Not sure if this is against the rules - going to make a quick bump before I leave for class this morning. Won't bump again if it is against some rule.

Report back when SP1 is already installed and memtest is done for 8 passes.

SP1 is now installed as are the rest of the Windows Updates. Here are the following memtest results which I have recorded:
  • Both sticks - stick 1 in slot 1 and stick 2 in slot 2 : 5,000 errors in 2 minutes.
  • One stick - stick 1 in slot 1 : no errors in 8 hours.
  • One stick - stick 1 in slot 2 : no errors in 10 minutes.
  • One stick - stick 2 in slot 1 : no errors in 10 minutes.
  • One stick - stick 2 in slot 2 : no errors in 10 minutes.
  • Both sticks - stick 1 in slot 2 and stick 2 in slot 1 : 17,000 errors in 10 minutes.

Is there something wrong with booting with both sticks?

It appears to be. Well found and well presented report.

It appears that both the 4 GB RAMs are of 1600 MHz .... whereas you stated they should be of 1866 MHz?
Code:
  Size                          4096MB
  Form Factor                   09h - DIMM
  Device Set                    [None]
  Device Locator                DIMM1
  Bank Locator                  BANK0
  Memory Type                   01h - Other
  Type Detail                   0080h - Synchronous
  Speed                         1600MHz
=====================================================

Make it sure that the RAM specifications are as per motherboards recommended status. Check it in your motherboard's manual.

Also, see how it is running with 4 GB only .... one stick in one DIMM slot.

Was able to run flawlessly throughout the entire day with only one stick on the motherboard. And yes, the RAM says that it is clocked at 1866 and has a specific timing on the sticker attached to the heat spreaders, that timing being CL9-10-9-28 but the last time I went into the BIOS to change the timings and the clock speed to 1866 everything BSODed upon startup and I was required to reinstall Windows - again I tried one stick at a time and both sticks in both slots, etc. for changing the timings. In Memtest86+ the RAM was clocked at a higher speed according to the tests - around 15-15 for the first 2 clock speeds - don't remember the others when both sticks were in and when 1 was in it was clocked at around 4-4. Why do the timings change depending on the number of sticks? Any way I can get back up to 8GB of RAM?
Thanks for the help so far, I really appreciate it .

As I told you earlier, check your motherboard's manual. Check the maximum amount of RAM that it can deal with, and the maximum speed.

The answer to the situation will be found there IMHO.
