Windows 7: Looping BSOD out of nowhere. Can't do anything in Chrome without BSOD

Looping BSOD out of nowhere. Can't do anything in Chrome without BSOD

Hi everybody, and thanks so much for the help in advance.

Well, just came back from the movies to be greeted with near-constant BSODs. The system is 5 or 6 years old, but with a brand new SSD as my HDDs just gave out.

When I first got the SSD running, I had a few BSODs. I was good for a few weeks then, but now it looks like they're back.

These are happening shortly after startup, and especially when trying to do things in Chrome or Postbox (email client).

Any helps would be greatly appreciated!

Will

Lots more BSODs even since my last post

Attached updated .zip with new .dmp files - just in case they can help...

Thanks again!

Just a quick update - left the computer running over night and now everything is fine. This happens with most of my BSODs, letting it run idle typically cures the problem.

Not sure if that helps, but thought it worth mentioning.

Just going through and trying some things...

Here's a Speccy snapshot of the system, seems all temperatures are fine. http://speccy.piriform.com/results/5...BeNHz4ZNaI1DTv

(Side note - what's this mean?
Bus Speed 133.2 MHz
Rated Bus Speed 3197.5 MHz)

I ran through and ensured my system has enough power going to it, at least on paper. 950w required, pretty far off 1200w...

I tried resetting my CPU and Memory settings to Defaults, but it ended up being extremely unstable. I put it back to the settings supplied to me from the company who built the rig, and it's running fine...

Next step for me is to start stress-testing everything, but this was just done less than a month ago when I replaced the SSD.

Any help, ideas, input, advice...would be appreciated

Hi WillMitchell.

The BSODs are 0x1A, Memory_Management. Either the RAM is failing or some driver is passing bad info to the memory.

First make it sure that the SSD is running with the latest firmware.
How to Upgrade SSD Firmware | StorageReview.com - Storage Reviews

Next 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. You may keep f.Lux there too if you want.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
Then observe how it is going. Does it still BSOD?

If so, 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.

If there is no error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

First off, thanks SO MUCH for the help! Really appreciate you taking the time to look at my issue.

I've checked SSD firmware, and it's up to date.

Went through and turned off most of the startup items.

I'm going to run through and do a memory test while I sleep, and DV tomorrow morning if nothing seems wrong.

I'll report back with any findings...

Thanks again!!!
