Windows 7: Random BSODs after hardware upgrade

Random BSODs after hardware upgrade

Hello! I recently upgraded my computer with a new motherboard (msi z87-g43), cpu (i7 4770k), psu (corsair 750w) and ssd (seagate 600 480gb ssd).

A few days later I started getting bluescreens since then I've been getting at least one almost every day. I've ran Prime95 for 18 hours with no errors, 2 sessions of Memtest86+ for 20 hours each with no errors, and multiple runs of Seatools checks and Windows DiskCheck with no errors. I have also updated my BIOS and reinstalled the system twice. The bluescreens happen at completely random times, when I'm gaming, browsing the web, watching movies or doing nothing at all.

I have uploaded all the minidumps I've saved here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/6ikyqft7w...l9dbBgEIbcmNha

I got 3 more today, added them to the dropbox folder. I've also noticed some of my programs crashing randomly, so far it has been Steam, Firefox and Skype twice.

I just had Skype and uTorrent crash at the same time. Both of them are installed on my SSD, could it be related? Also I've uploaded a few more minidumps to the dropbox folder in the first post.

I just realized I probably uploaded my files the wrong way, not sure how much people like using dropbox. Anyway, I've added the latest .zip file in this post, it has all the latest minidumps as well.

Well we have a few different culprits being flagged,

Your video driver is one,

Code:
BugCheck D1, {208, 2, 0, fffff88002c0924b}

Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\atikmdag.sys, Win32 error 0n2

    Translations:     0000.04b0 0000.04e4 0409.04b0 0409.04e4
Looks like the latest version, try using an older version and see if that helps.

Previous AMD Catalyst? Display Drivers

I didn't see you mention testing your video card, that might be a good idea too,

Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

The other driver mentioned a couple times is your realtek ethernet driver,

Code:
BugCheck 1000007E, {ffffffffc0000005, fffff880016cd974, fffff8800aa48568, fffff8800aa47dc0}

Also not very old but you can try updating that,

Realtek

And a couple of memory corruption dumps as well,

Code:
BugCheck 50, {fffffa80c4bae67b, 0, fffff80002cdc7bf, 5}


Could not read faulting driver name
Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiAgeWorkingSet+4df )
I know you said you ran Memtest86+, did you check each module in each slot for at least 8 passes?

information   Information
MemTest86+

Run a minimum of 8 passes, preferably overnight, or until errors occur using MemTest86+.

Use this tutorial to help you use MemTest86+:
RAM - Test with MemTest86+


Let us know the results from that.

What do you mean with "did you check each module in each slot for at least 8 passes?"? I did run Memtest86+ for 16 passes twice with all 4 modules inserted, and got zero errors.

I updated my network drivers and downloaded furmark. After about an hour of Furmark + Prime95 I got a BSOD I have never seen before, REFERENCE_BY_POINTER. I've added the minidump to this post. After that I uninstalled the drivers and installed the 13-12 version. So far I've ran Furmark for 3 hours with Prime95 running in the background with no problems.

I thought everything was good, got no bluescreens for 2 days. I did get a system freeze and a few program crashes though. But today I just got another BSOD, SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, mentioning dxgmms1.sys. I was playing EVE Online when it happened, the game just froze, windows told me it had stopped responding, and when I terminated the process I got the BSOD. I've added the minidump to this post.
