Windows 7: Random BSOD, Error ntoskrnl.exe+cca4a

Random BSOD, Error ntoskrnl.exe+cca4a

Greetings, I was hoping someone would help me with my BSOD ntoskrnl.exe issue as I've experiencing them randomly throughout the day but not quite enough to the point it would cripple my PC. I had this issue a year ago that was fixed by simply running Memtest86+ through a few passes on all RAM modules and I found out that 2 out of 3 of my sticks had errors all over them. I smartened up a bit when I replaced them several months back by running them through the same test and fortunately none of them had any errors.

I tried digging through the other similar ntoskrnl.exe threads but to no avail, also tried running each stick in 4-7 passes and none of them displayed any errors.

Any help and insight would be greatly appreciated

Hello and welcome thunderkiss first up the memtest mate should be run at least 8 passes unless errors come up straight away but if you are satisfied with what you have done try these for starters the files I am not real sure so do these first

Hello ICit2lol, I ran System File Checker already and the error log is the CBS.zip I've included in my original post

I ran the following in the meantime:

1. Driver Verifier - BSOD at login screen with nvlddmkm.sys (Strange since I regularly update my drivers and I know how to install them clean)
2. CrystalInfo and SeaTools - All HDDs are okay
3. Adwcleaner - It didn't see anything of value, cleaned everything anyway
4. Malwarebytes - No malicious items detected

Will try to run a comprehensive disk check and maybe another Memtest run a few hours from now

I'm starting to think this could be a hardware issue but I cannot find proof

Ok Thunder it could be something as simple as reseating the sticks and GPU and you can do that easily and while you are at it do this

SLOTCLEANING

Now as for the slots to clean them use astrip of old credit card about 1/2 inch wide nip the corners off one end - preferably round them offhold apiece of thin lint free cloth over the end dab on some form of alcohol - isopropyl alcohol (what we swab the skin with before an injection) is good and GENTLY swipe along the slots.

This can also be done for the GPU slot/s.

Just finished a Memtest run, found out that the last stick had errors after 6 passes

Plugged in a new stick, system is stable so far and no BSOD/hanging yet

I'll try to clean up my case in the meantime before I start Checkdisk

Greta some progress mate and while you are cleaning up try the slot cleaning too because they do accumulate crud over time even though they are a reasonably tight fit.

I just finished Chkdsk at this time on all four drives, they're all mint clean from the inside

ICit2lol, I've done all you've asked; I think I would be best if I just wait it out for a day or two of normal use since I've been testing and diagnosing this rig with your help for the past two days.

EDIT: PC just froze a minute ago and my headphones had this intense buzzing sound

Ok mate I might just ask for some help here as it sounds to me like the HDD is either badly corrupted or failing or even the board.

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
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.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Try to update the BIOS to the latest, from MSI Global ? Motherboard - Eclipse SLI

Let us know the results.

I would run with one stick only atm to test your other stuff like cpu, it sounds like you have:
A: bad ram
B: bad ram slots
C: other undetermined problems.

So yeah run prime 95 with blend setting and see if any of the workers stop after about 3 hours or more or even sooner (a bad oc will stop them in about 30 seconds for instance).
