Windows 7: BSOD 0x0000000a 0x0000001e 0x00000050 0x0000003b

BSOD 0x0000000a 0x0000001e 0x00000050 0x0000003b

Dear experts,

after just too many days of troubleshooting (please disregard the former thread) I decided to flash the BIOS, then re-format my SSD and re-install Windows 7 including all drivers the device manager asked for. Apart from BlueScreenView, SF Diagnostic Tool, 7zip and Dropbox, I installed/ran no other software or drivers. Windows update shows me that Windows is updated. I have currently only one bar of 8GB RAM installed; I have a 4-bar 16GB and a 2-bar 16GB kit available that ran fine in an identical PC. The QVL from Asus is from 2011 and outdated; the recommended RAM is no longer commercially available.

Do I need a new processor, mainboard or RAM? A new PC? I sincerely hope not the latter!

I have attached the output from the SF Diagnostic Tool as required. What should I proceed with?

Thanks in advance for any insights!

I downloaded and installed one additional software, IntelProcessorDiagnosticTool and ran it. Result: Another old chap reared its ugly head - the BSOD 0x00000124 where the BSOD display freezes and thus no minidump is being written - I have to push the reset-button each time this particular BSOD occurs.

I mean, being a useless user, I can't tell shit from shinola as far as PCs are concerned, but does this indicate a hardware fault? Such as mainboard, memory or processor?

How can I pinpoint what it is, so at least I know what, in the worst case, I have to buy anew?

Hi Useless User (you should change your username. Ask the Admins for it!!).

The series of different BSODs gives a primary sense that there might be something going wrong with the RAM. Make it sure at first.

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.

Let us know the result. Then we will start for stop 0x124.

Thanks. Well, I seem to be pretty useless, a troublehooting twerp, so I leave it as is. Meanwhile, Memtest86+ is doing its thing.

I get back after eight passes, or if another BSOD/freeze ensues while that test is running.

Ok, the PC has done its eight passes of Memtest86+ that took 22 hours and 10 minutes, without an error. What do you recommend me to do next?

So we may now say that RAM is not failing, apparently.

Next attempt will be to 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.

Yes, the RAM and/or the two mainboard slots it's installed in seem ok. I restarted the PC in normal mode, and after not even a minute, obtained another beautiful BSOD 0x0000001e. I have Driver Verifier enabled as per the instruction linked; let's see what happens next!

Since I have no software installed, other than the above mentioned, I ran IPDT again, so the PC has something to do. Like above, it either ends prematurely or I obtain a BSOD 0x00000124.

Now, I have the Task Manager and IE open to have something going on while Driver Verifier is on. I let it run over night, maybe a useful crash happens.

I got a BSOD 0x000000d1 now, while the PC was idling away, hopefully by way of Driver Identifier.

What's next?
