Windows 7: BSOD caused by Ntfs.sys

I have no idea how to underclock or underclock, so I should be good on that front I guess?

I'll try to do Memtest again when I have another long stretch of time which may take at least week or so for me to acquire, Sadly it takes a long time for my computer I think due to how much memory it has to test on mine (Last time I did it I had it running for 6 hours and it only got 2 passes finished with no errors. This computer has 16 gigs of RAM if that affects anything)

Though, is it normal for it to take this long? Also I do have something that measures the MHz of the GPU and the memory, I haven't touched any settings from how it was set at default when my friend assembled this computer for me.

Those are the MHZ settings thingy for the GPU that I have, I actually don't touch that at all so I have no idea on if I need to after the settings of that or not.

Yes, thats normal...mine takes the same length of time on 16Gb.

Any attempts to run Memtest has been mostly fruitless, the most I have been able to get was 3 passes (12 hours) with 0 errors but my parents keep turning my computer off on me when it is partway through and keep telling me as to 'how I'm wasting power keeping it on while I'm not using it'

Even trying to tell them what I'm doing just goes right over their heads as well, so I won't be able to actually get the chance to do a full run until May at the soonest since then is when they would be gone for a few days. : /

And I have had 2 more blue screens again, I think both for different reasoning? I wonder if there are other things that could also be flagging them as well since I would rather replace the memory when I'm certain that it is that. (but the sticks were just bought about 7 months ago, brand spanking new...so it's not like they even had much use yet either.)

Also a question concerning Memtest, if I just ran it with only one of the 2 memory sticks inserted in, and then later ran it with just the other one, would it still get similar results on finding out if one of the sticks is faulty? Since doing it that way may help in trying to cut some of the time down and possibly be able to get 8 passes in during an overnight and get the computer off before they notice it as opposed to running it with both sticks in.

Yes, you can test each stick individually.

Well, I was able to get the sticks through the 8 passes by doing them separately, but memtest reported to me 0 errors on each of them.

I apologize if this is becoming difficult to figure out and for sounding so needy too.

OK. Kets see what Driver Verifier finds.

Follow:
1. Log in as administrator, open Windows Explorer and go to C:\Windows\Minidump
2. Delete all .dmp files in that folder
3. Run Driver Verifier as follows:

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier will cause your computer to run very sluggishly - this is normal. What it is trying to do is force your system to BSOD and isolate the offending driver/s. When it does, reboot, disable driver verifier, reboot as normal and upload the new dmp file/s here.

I recommend creating a system restore point before turning on driver verifier:
System Restore Point - Create

If your system fails to boot to desktop once driver verifier is enabled, turn it off by booting into Safe Mode:

How do I know if Driver Verifier is working properly? I've followed the instructions to it EXACTLY and had it running for 2 days and I can't get my machine to BSoD on me. Instead if periodically crashes and locks up (but no BSoD) and the screen looks like a ton of coloured bars when it does so as well.
(This is what it looks like when it crashes -- http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/f/20...ic-d8ckcug.jpg )

I deleted the verifier settings and this hasn't happened yet after trying to induce the same load as when it was on, but when it was 'on' I couldn't notice any sluggish behavior from my computer at all, and there wasn't any sort of 'driver verifier' process in my task manager either if there should be one.

I can't get it to blue screen still when in driver verifier (The computer just freezes up and crashes without bluescreening, so it doesn't make a dump), though I did have 2 blue screens when the driver verifier was off, though. : /

I'm in desperate need of help still, when I use Driver Manager to force the computer to crash, I STILL can't get it to make a bluescreen, it still just only gives me the multi-coloured bars like in the image I put two posts above (Won't give me a blue screen image and WON'T create a bluescreen dump either). So trying to diagnose from that is apparently going to be a no-go if I can't get you a bluescreen dump created with driver manager on.

So I have no choice but to have to work from dumps with the driver manager off because of this. : /

Anywho, new bluescreen happened as well.

Sorry for the late reply. The image is a classic symptom of a problematic video card and/or drivers.

Try this:
1. Uninstall all the video card drivers and associated software.
2. Re-install the latest stable version of the drivers
3. Stress test the card by running this for 20 mins, noting the temperatures reached
