Windows 7: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT BSOD, Driver Verifier BSOD

Did you download memtest86+ from Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool? if not use that. There is another version named memtest86 which is not as good as this one. Why the names have to be so similar is beyond me. But, the one I linked to is pretty much the industry standard. It is not a perfect test, but is the best we have. In the middle of the page you can download either the ISO.ZIP file or the Auto installer for USB.zip. I use the 4.20 version as several people have had trouble getting the 5.01 version to continue running. They are basically the same test. If you choose the 5.01 version, upon boot up it will tell you to press certain keys, do not press anything it will begin running on it's own and will run until you tell it to stop. It needs to be run for 8 passes all at one time. The purpose of the test is to test the memory, but to also test the Dimm Slots. You can run both sticks for 8 passes or until you get an error. If you get an error, stop the test. Then we will be running one stick at a time in each slot, then switch sticks and do the same. That is the only way to determine whether it is the ram or the Dimm slots, which does happen. Run the sticks in the slots recommended by the motherboard manufacturer. And, also always download drivers from Asus web site. You will always get more current drivers from the web site than from their driver disk.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I don't mind explaining at all.

Yes i used the same site, auto usb'd it onto my usb drive, and ran the test from there. 5.01 worked flawlessly for me. I guess tonight i will be tested the other 2 dimm slots ive never used before. It also crossed my mind, i think on the same day the bsods started happening, i raised my ram speed from 1333 to 1866 and then the bsods kicked in shortly after. i wonder what will happen if i lower it back down to 1333?

You should be able to run it at the manufacturers rated speeds, just check CPUz on the SPD tabs or on the package the ram came in, or on the white sticker on the side of the sticks. It will tell you the frequency, first 4 timings and the voltage. They will run a the specified speed, if you use the correct timings and voltage. I would still use the same slots you are going to run them in. The empty slots will make no difference. Just be sure you run the frequency, timings and voltage specified.

I set both sticks back to 1333. I let the bios auto do the voltages/timings. Now we wait for the next bsod if there is then i know its not the ram speed problem

That's fine, it's your computer, do it however you want. But, it's a very simple process. If I paid for 1866 ram, I wouldn't want to run it at 1333.

I don't blame you. But if you don't put in the timings, voltages and frequency and run memtest86+, you'll never know if it will.

So this time i should find a way to manually adjust the timings and voltages? I thought the mobo would do it for me?

You should have a section in the overclocking section of BIOS where you can set it to XMP, if your ram has XMP values, which it most likely does. Otherwise, you can set it by hand.
