Windows 7: Random BSOD's at random times often error 0x0000001E

First of all: I'm 90 percent sure now it's hardware related. It's either a defect RAM or MOBO. Unplugged one of the RAM's and immediate crash after booting. Now have the other RAM stick only plugged in and I've been able to sit in front of this machine for 2 hours without a single crash or BSOD. Will send the RAM sticks back.

Second: I have not replaced the mobo since I haven't got it yet. I would appreciate any tipps on installing Windows anyhow.

Last: SF DiagTool rar

Ok. When you get the new board and ram situated, I want to do a "Virgin" install. Nothing but the OS and Updates, Chipset drivers and Lan driver, Microsoft security Essentials (Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows). Nothing else. See if it runs OK.

Ram can be a killer, and in my opinion, makes most of the dump files unreliable. I consider much of this my fault. I should have realized when you had a BSOD during Memtest.

Most of what we have seen seem to be mostly network problems. I'm just wondering if it has to do with being hardwired and wireless at the same time. When you get set, I'll take you through it one step at a time.

Well the IT friend I have been talking to and who bet 10 € on a defect MOBO said he is pretty sure he was wrong and suspected the RAM after I described my problems again. He said it's very unlikely that the errors come from the MOBO RAM socket so in his opinion it's only the faulty RAM that caused all this and the MOBO is fine. We will see what Corsair replies.

Looking forward to do that but it's gonna take a while until I get my RAM again I guess.

Just to be clear my computer is only connected by hardwire and does not have a wifi adapter or something. The wifi is only for my smartphone. Maybe I'll draw a picture where you can see the setup clearly.

ram will kill everything. You shouldn't have any trouble with Corsair, they're pretty good. What you will have trouble with is waiting 3-4 weeks for the return. You could ask for an advance replacement. You just give them a credit card, but they only charge it if they don't get the bad ram back. It's just a CYA for them. I've done it several times and never been charged.

I agree with your IT friend. It sounds like the ram. If it's bad ram, in my opinion, I don't trust what the debugger is saying. The debugger is catching the effect of the crash and not the cause. My idea was if we install nothing but the OS and MSE, there is nothing there, that can cause a crash. If you get a crash then, you know it's hardware. Only a bad Windows update, which is rare, is in the OS. It will not crash unless you have bad hardware. Then start adding programs one at a time, and testing between each one. It is a longer process, but if you have a program or driver that causes a crash, you will know what it is immediately. That's the safest and easiest way to do it and be certain of what's going wrong.

I installed my new PSU today and still getting BSOD's. Rest is as in my updated system spec's. I believe one RAM stick is more broken than the other and/or the mobo is defect, because when I remove the RAM stick I believe is more corrupt the crashes come not as often as with both. The slots I put the RAM's in don't matter.

This means we can count out my old PSU as the cause.

It sounds like it, but I suspect the ram. The new mobo and the old mobo are doing the same thing. That's not to say it isn't the new mobo, but you won't know until you get some known good ram.

I still have the old mobo(Asrock Pro3 970 R2.0) installed, the new one hasn't even arrived yet. Only thing I've changed is PSU and also running on one RAM stick(the one II believe might be ok) for a while without any crash now.

Well, why do I keep thinking you have installed the new one? It is looking more and more like ram, to me. I wish you had some known good ram to test it out with. That would be the best tell tale sign.

No problem. Unfortunately I don't have some spare DDR3 RAM to test, but we will see what happens, after i switched mobo's today.

OK, great. But, it does seem to be the ram at this point.
