Windows 7: BSOD, random

BSOD, random

Well, I'm somewhat at my wits end. About a year ago I started getting BSODs on my system, sometimes recurring, other times they'd go away for literally MONTHS at a time.

When they started I had not really installed or changed anything so I was sure it wasn't software related. They went away for a long time, then came back, and then I decided to reseat everything and they went away for along time again. Came back, and nothing seems to do the trick now. I reinstalled windows 7 and it actually bluescreened on me within minutes of finishing the installation.

I think its hardware related, but I'm not sure, and I don't want to go down the route of buying components and trying them out because I can't be sure that x component has solved the issue since this really doesn't happen all the time going a week or two or months even without an issue is no way to say for sure the issue is fixed since I routinely go that long without issue.. I went about a week without any problems and started getting them again yesterday. I've run memtest86 and that came back with no errors (just the default test that starts auto), I've run chkdsk with no errors, the windows memtest as well. I think it could be PSU related, but I have no idea how to check that out.. other people have mentioned it could just be the mobo has gone kaput.

Ive used a minidump viewer and noticed that ntoskrnl.exe is what bugs out in every case, sometimes with other drivers (ntfs, tcpip, fltmgr) causing the bluescreen. The latest BSOD was due to a page fault error, but no minidump was created. Windows is set to create a kernel memory dump.

Anyway, I followed the steps using the sf dump collector and am uploading it here.. would be greatly appreciated if anyone could look into it

Thanks

Wow thats the first time I've ever heard of someone not having winrar!

I just completed the WD LifeGuard Diagnostic extended test and passed without issues.

Here you go

I seem to notice they're cropping up more often when I am running diablo2 if that helps in any way. I run it as admin and in compatibility mode for xp sp2

I just had another. Thing is on the bluescreen page, it froze when dumping the memory to the drive at 80% and I just had to restart the computer. Is that indicative of anything?

Can a man get some help?? I uploaded as a .rar and a .zip.. I see others have no problem working with rars. Are my bsod's that bad or are they just boring or something??

Well, still battling issues. No solution yet.

Ordered some new ram just to try, I'm at a loss with what to do. I've tried both current sticks of ram individually and the crashes still occur for both so im thinking thats probably not it.

I'm down to either graphics card or psu..

Sometimes the screen freezes and just locks up, other times it does this and jumps to a bsod.. but due to the fact that it doesnt make it to the bsod sometimes Im thinking maybe the graphics card is just acting up.

Seem worthy?

At this point since I've got really nothing to go on I'm at the stage of just throwing money at the problem and hoping I replace the component thats mucking things up.

I would really really appreciate if someone could have alook at my dumps..

Who made this computer that you are having trouble with? Dell, HP, .....

If you built it, what is the brand/model of the motherboard?

By the way, I don't have Winrar on this employer supplied laptop - so thanks for uploading the native zip.

Hello, thanks for the response.

Its a custom build. Phenom II, asus m4a79xtd evo mobo.

Ive swapped the ram but problems are still occuring (yay!). I actually had it freeze on me while I was in the bios checking to see that the ram voltages were correct. By freeze I mean the screen just freezes where it is and no inputs are taken. When it freezes like this in windows (without a bsod) things like the capslock/numlock etc won't activate.

Ive run all the HD diagnostics I can and it doesnt appear to be hdd related. I'm going to buy a cheapy graphics card to rule that out, and return it (if I can) if the problems persist. Sadly I don't have any sort of onboard video to make this easier.. I really hope its not mobo related *sigh*
