Windows 7: BSOD's all over the place, too many causes to name

BSOD's all over the place, too many causes to name

Well, as the title reads, this pc i have has been BSOD'ing like hell, most noteably during gaming, it'll BSOD with many differing causes, and im getting so frustrated i cant even make a professional thread on the matter, so i'll just enclose my minidump archive, and hope for the best.

oh ive already run preliminary checks on my system, i am a IT student in my finals year but if i'd have to diagnose this pc i'd call it FUBAR, except that its brand new and quite expensive, from a reputable source. So if anyone comes with things to try go ahead and shoot, I'm open for anything

(a side symptom is that even if its not BSOD'ing, it'll still crash fullscreen games ranging from MMO's like guild wars and SWTOR to MOBA's like Smite, to singleplayer games like Civilization 5 (all of which are well within the specs of my pc, so if anyone finds a link there, that'd be great) (also recently my flash starts crashing within chrome a bit, dunno if these are related issues)

So many different errors. The first notion goes to memory.

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.

Let us know the result.

yeah ive already ran a single pass of memtest (due to it being 16 GB's), came beck errorfree. guess ill make it run for the entire night tonight, see what happens, in the meantime, it kind of seems to look like the ramsticks are in very close proximity to the vid card (i'd say nearly touching it, but the sticks appear to have some form of plating over them) would this cause issues to to power looping through, even if theres no direct contact?

ill report in tomorrow with results of the memtest

It is seen many a times that if the RAM modules are below (or close to) the CPU fan, they fail abruptly. Never seen any issue about the GPU, though.

Let us see how the result comes out after at least 8 passes.

well, after a whole while of testing and working around, it still isnt solved :3 memtest came back clean though, no errors after about 24 passes (wanted to be sure)

As per the zip,teh latest BSOD was of 4th May. And the crash dump of 3rd May says that it is caused by RAM.
Code:
BugCheck 1A, {8887, fffffa800497bf80, fffffa800234af50, 500}

*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for Ntfs.sys
Probably caused by : hardware_ram ( ZEROED_PAGE_CORRUPTED )

Followup: MachineOwner
---------
Can you apply the RAM sticks in the other channel, as a test?

weird given how it BSOD'd TODAY and i just reused your compilers, maybe it just isnt writing them out anymore? anyway i did the seperate ram and seperate channel tests, everything came back positively clean, and the last BSOD read: "a driver corrupted pool memory used for holding pages destined for disk" so even after i reinstalled quite a load of drivers, i think the issue lies there...does anyone have some tool i can use to quickly and accurately check all of them? all im finding is a metric shitton of spamware or worse

For the drivers, you may check those following Drivers - Find and Update Outdated Drivers.

As the dumps are not being recorded, follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

It is expected that now the dumps will be recorded.

Then, for a caution, free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
Now enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip


Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

alright, thanks for the very helpful guides, even i as an IT student didnt know about driver verifier everythings enabled and now we wait for a day i suppose

one thing that caught my eye was the AMD Storage Filter Driver being last modified in 2011 but created in 2014 and i couldnt find a newer version than 2011...given how most of the stuff is stuff like paging non pageable areas and memory related, it piqued my interest...any knowledge in this regard?

If you are talking about amdxata.sys, let it be there as it is.

Yours an Intel chipset, no AMD drivers can be installed there.

But that driver is present there. I dont know why. I am also having an Intel system, and it is present there, too.

Do dont think about it, let it be there.
