Windows 7: Crap ton of BSOD - (Too many to list)

Crap ton of BSOD - (Too many to list)

I built my own computer about a week or so ago and so far it has been hell. I have gotten so many random bsod that I have lost track of all the different error codes.

Here are some that seem to happen the most ( or that I can find written down):

1. error 0x3b
2. error MEMORY_MANAGEMENT 0x1a
3. error BAD_POOL_HEADER 0x19
4. error 0x4e


Hopefully, some kind fellow can lend me a hand and possibly find out the root cause(s) of all these blue screens and help me to fix my computer.

I think that I may have a bad driver or something wrong with my RAM

I would suggest pull all but 1 stick of ram and since that board does not have an onboard gpu I would move the ram to the furthest port away from the cpu first and see how it handles. if its ok the swap out with other stick and see again. Memtest with a bootable cd would also be prudent. the issue you are posting are indicative of memory failure but not the only reason they might have.

I forgot to mention that I ran memtest with both sticks in and it passed 7 times. Will doing one stick at a time be better?

Running 1 stick at a time will let us know if it is a motherboard port issue or memory itself. I have seen errors not show until test 7 or 8 before. Random BSD's could be generated by many things hardware and software related. the 3 biggest parts wise I see with BSD's Are memory, Processor and PSU. looking at your specs there isn't any parts who's quality I would question so the best option is bread boarding it, make sure your standoffs are tight and clean, only hook up essential parts, since the os is installed there's really no need to hook up the dvd at this point. one stick of ram, no extra fans or usb case connections ect.

I did order the RAM and psu online so they could've been damaged somehow. How many tests should be sufficient enough to test my RAM?

if you run 10 test all ok then I would say there's no ram issue. I know others may argue that 2 or three are good enough but sometimes it's not enough time to build up heat and static to a failure point. as I said I have seen errors pop up on as late as test seven.

I just ran a test with one of my sticks of RAM and it passed 15 times. Should I run memtest in all of the Mobo slots to make sure I don't have a faulty motherboard?

cant hurt if time isn't an issue then I would. Then test the other stick in any one of the slots. Have you tried booting a Linux live cd to see if the system is stable without mounting a hard drive?

Is there any way I can view the errors that occured in memtest? Is there a folder for it?

As far as I know there is no log when running from a cd, dvd, or floppy which is the proper way to run memtest. any errors will display on screen. if after 7 to 11 passes there is no error shown then that ram stick and port is ok. if the program locks up or errors are shown then that stick or port has faults.
