Windows 7: BSOD once a day or so

I've had quite a few BSOD's. I'm just continuing to update this post with a new ZIP after each one to avoid making new posts in the thread and causing annoying bumps.

A number of DV enabled minidumps are there.
Code:
DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID:  VERIFIER_ENABLED_VISTA_MINIDUMP
But all are different, haphazard. Which gives a nice idea that driver is not the issue there.

One of them says ....
Code:
BugCheck 50, {fffff88025cf598a, 0, fffff8800162d03b, 2}


Could not read faulting driver name
Probably caused by : hardware ( TDI!TdiCopyBufferToMdl+2b )

When a DV enabled BSOD blames hardware, it cannot be a driver.

How you tested RAM, and for haw many passes? Are you sure that the RAM is compatible with the board?

Take memtest86+ again. Take a camera snap of the memtest86+ screen before you close the program. Upload the camera snap here.

Last time I tested the RAM it went 9 passes with 0 errors. I tested it a couple times before that and received 0 errors also. i'll do it again and take a picture of the screen.

Is it possible that it might be the graphics card?

Not impossible, It may be the graphics card, or the processor, or any other part of the hardware. But RAM is the primary suspect.

I'll be honest, I have no idea what that is, haha

I have memtest running while I'm at work. I'll post a picture when I get home.

No problem. It should take a good time.

Just stopped my memtest. Hopefully I ran it long enough. Here is a pic of it.

So memtest86+ passed. Now let us test the other hardware as far as we can.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us.

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95
It saves the result as a .txt file in the prime95's folder. Upload the file for us.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator - The most trusted PSU Wattage Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

If these tests go well too, remove either RAM stick and let the computer run with a single RAM stick only.

Let us know the results.

I did the GPU test for 20min. If you need me to do it longer, I can. I uploaded the photo of the end of that test.

The CPU test I'll have to do tomorrow since it recommends 2 hours and I'm going to bed. I don't know if letting it run overnight is a good idea or not.

I checked the PSU calculator and it says it recommends 528 watts (min 478). My PSU is 700 watts.

GPU stress test passed without any problem. And heat is under control, too.

Your PSU is more than enough.

Let us see what the CPU stress test yields.
