Windows 7: BSOD -ntoskrnl.exe main problem file

BSOD -ntoskrnl.exe main problem file

I've been having problem the past 2 weeks with BSOD. I've run Prime95 for like 2h, no BSOD and the temp is around 75C, I've done some chkdsk on all of my drives. Have one SSD and four HDDs.
I've also run memtest86. First time I got one errr after pass 1 finished and started with pass 2. The test had run for like 2hrs. Then I pulled out one of the RAM(the one closest to the HDD cage), ran the test again for 2,5 passes(2-3hrs), no errors. Ran the RAM I pulled out, same length, no errors. Put the other three back in and ran the test over night for 8hrs, no errors.(??) I think it was around 5-7 passes. Under computer properties it was Installed RAM: 16GB (15,9GB usable)

But I still had problems. Reinstalled Windows 7 Enterprise, installed all the Windows updates and the drivers from Gigabytes webpage, this time without the EasyTune etc.
I also have simple programs like: uTorrent, Minecraft Server, Mumble Server, Wampserver, Plex Media Server and Filezilla Server on it. So no random programs etc.
Still got problems. I've tried to reset BIOS, didn't help. I have changed from IDE to AHCI in the BIOS(cause I have SSD). When I come home today I will try to pull out two RAM and see what happens, if that doesn't help, I will try to run with the two I pull out. I will also try to disconnect the HDDs and only have the SSD plugged in.
I will try to update BIOS too. If none works I will reinstall Windows again and dont install ANYTHING and see what happens. Any ideas? I will upload the dumps here when I get back.

I've searched around the web, here and on Google and it seems it could be: RAM, Graphic Drivers, RAM slot, HDD or Mobo. Hopefully it will be some driver, but it would be weird when I'm downloading from Gigabyte's website. Hope not it is the mobo or hdd. Ram would be okey.
I think it could be the RAM cause I dropped one or two on my motherboard in my other computer when I swaped them out for 32GB in my main computer. That's why I think it could be the RAM, but Memtest86 only showed one error one time. But I will try rerun that test if you guys want me to.
I had linux before Windows 7 and I THINK the computer worked just fine for like a week or so before the problem showed up and I can't remember what could have cause it. The computer is almost a month old now. I was very careful when I put the computer together. I bought everything in parts. Could it be that the pins under the CPU who is crocked when I put the CPU down? I was really carefull.

The BSOD happens randomly. Sometimes if happens after couple of minutes, sometimes it can running for 8hrs. Also it happens when the computer is in idle, when I'm not doing anything.
This morning it happened to times when I was downloading to one of my HDDs.

I've got problems with:
system_service_exception
driver_irql_not_less_or_equal
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
pfn_list_corrupt
memory_management


And files:
ntoskrnl.exe(In every BSOD)
rt64win7.sys

ntfs.sys
hal.dll

I will check rest of the files when I come home from work and also upload the dump files.

Best regards. I really hope you smart people can help me out. I've been trying to fix this problem on my own for 2 weeks now. It starting to piss me off. Lol.

Here comes my dumps: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...6_17283367.rar
(Download link don't work for some reason. Check the atteched files further down the thread.)

Does it matter that I use my computer via Remote Access from my main computer? That shouldn't be an issue.

Got a BSOD now when I got home.
This time is was the files: ntoskrnl.exe, tcpip.sys and win32k.sys.

Took out 2 of 4 RAM slots and will see if it BSODs anything. The RAMS are at 1600mhz atm. Shall I change back to 1333mhz?
Under Computer Properties it says: Installed RAM: 8GB (7.88GB usable)

I also use Classic theme on the dekstop. Not the Areo.

EDIT:
My Samsung 840 EV 120GB SSD have the latest firmware and the chkdsk didn't show any problems what I could see and Samsung Magician showed that the disk is healthy so I don't think is the SSD anyway.

Atm I'm running with 2x4GB RAM and trying to see if the system is stable. If not, I will try the other two sticks in the meantime you guys look at the dump files.

While the system is running I checked the Event Viewer in Windows under Custom Views->Administrative Events and found these Errors:
Unloading the performance counter strings for service WmiApRpl (WmiApRpl) failed. The first DWORD in the Data section contains the error code.

The performance strings in the Performance registry value is corrupted when process Performance extension counter provider. The BaseIndex value from the Performance registry is the first DWORD in the Data section, LastCounter value is the second DWORD in the Data section, and LastHelp value is the third DWORD in the Data section.

Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.

I posted that in my second post.

I've been running my system now for almost 2hs after I took out 2 RAM sticks and did chkdsk on my SSD.
Im currently running Prime95 and my friend is downloading and maxing my upload atm

EDIT: Still running Prime95 and my friend is still downloading at max from me and I'm currently now downloadning. So right now I'm maxing my CPU at 100% and maxing both my upload and download on my internet connection. I still have 2 sticks of RAM(2x4GB) installed. I will have my computer running for 48h and then swap out the RAM in the same slots and see if it will make any difference.

Has anyone looked at my dump files yet?

Prime95 has been running for 4hrs now. I will stop it now and just leave the computer to run in idle over night and see how long it can go before it BSOD again. Perhaps it worked to take out the other 2 RAM sticks. If so, I will try the other 2 I took out and see if the computer BSODs.

Still running from last night. Will post update if anything happens and post new BSODs if they come.

Anyone who has checked my dumps yet?

EDIT: Uptime atm is 18hrs.
EDIT2: Uptime atm is 21,5hrs

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.

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.

Okey, I will try that now and install it and run Memtest86 over night.
The driver is for the NIC right? The network card on my motherboard?

Does it matter if I take the installer or the driver and use the device manager?
Do I need to follow the part 2 in the installation for the sound?

EDIT: I updated like the guide, just for the Ethernet though, and now I just started the Memtest86 to go overnight. I will come back with results.
I'm running the RAM at 1600Mhz. (because they are 1600Mhz RAMs)

EDIT2: I have run, and still running, the RAM test over night. 8hrs and 7 passes. No errors so far. I will let the test continue while I'm at work. I will let you know how it goes. If no errors when I get back home, I will test the other two sticks.
