Windows 7: BSOD different messages, different times, quite frequently, no new HW

BSOD different messages, different times, quite frequently, no new HW

Hi forums,

Lately my computer has decided to BSOD at very random times. The last one was while I was typing my first post here and had only this window open. I read several posts and articles on the internet about it and a lot of them pointed to RAM issues. I previously had 4GB ram. I ordered a new set, and figured I could upgrade a bit and went to 8GB and so the problems were still there. I've ran memtest86 on each stick, each slot, and no difinitive answers. My computer does not seem to run hot, my fans crank up during BIOS but quiet down as I load into Windows. My GFX card had been making some noise a few weeks ago and so I took the case apart and used compressed air on heatsinks and ducts and anywhere I thought that dust would be an issue. The noise went away, but the problems presisted. I'm wondering now if the video card has gone bad (Radeon HD 5770) since it has it's own memory which would be inline with RAM suspections. Hopefully I've followed the instructions on how to post here and will be uploading my forum-created info file. If i can provide any other information please let me know. I'm on the verge of a full rebuild without the full amount of money in the bank

Another piece of info that might be significant - the color of the text on the BSOD has been different colors. I've had pink text, the traditional white and just recently a cyan.

Hmm, your ATI DSM Dynamic Driver is causing issues, please update by following these instructions.

How-To Install AMD Catalyst? Drivers For A Windows® Based System

Your driver is very outdated

Code:

    Loaded symbol image file: atdcm64a.sys

You are getting memory management that specifically points to RAM, it indicates that the RAM has been corrupted in a zeroed page which is the first address right at the start. In other words it's the computer's very first address space.

You should test your RAM by running memtest86. Follow these instructions.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Code:

I initially thought it was RAM so I just purchased a new set of 2. Could the DIMM slots on the mobo be bad? I can actually boot up and do stuff on this computer without being in safe mode for a little while before BSOD... so if the first spot is bad what's going on? Does Windows not use this space first?

I am updating my AMD drivers now. I really appreciate the help!

Weeks later I am still having the same issues. My new strips of ram have been tested as single and in each slot and problems persist.

Can these problems be due to video card RAM? Or is my motherboard possibly the culprit?

Stress test your graphics card with Furmark

I recommend running it for around 30 minutes

warning   Warning

Furmark will increase the temperature of your GPU rapidly so keep and eye on your temperatures


More information is required.
  1. go to Start
  2. Type in msinfo32
  3. open the program then click file > save
  4. save it to your desktop then zip it up
  5. upload that zip file in your next reply

Well I ran Furmark the other day and it ran just fine for about 25 minutes. Temps plateaued around 104 C. I plugged in another strip of ram and I had no issues over the last few days until randomly today it shut down.

104c is very hot, your GPU is overheating.

Do all components heat up a lot?
If so you should look at getting more fans or a bigger case to increase the airflow.
My GPU temperatures do not rise above 80C on furmark.

but I do have a feeling video RAM is the cause, I'm not 100% sure though.
Do you have another GPU you can test?
Even try switching to on-board graphics.

I do not have another to test but all signs are pointing to this video card being the culprit. I've ordered another one so I'll be able to test it in a few days when it arrives and know for sure. I appreciate the help!
