Windows 7: BSOD Fairly Often. Driver Verifier Enabled = BSOD on Boot Every Time

BSOD Fairly Often. Driver Verifier Enabled = BSOD on Boot Every Time

I have a relatively new computer that I've built and I've been getting BSOD's for a while.

At first I thought it was because the pagefile was disabled, but that was just why they weren't getting logged to MiniDump. Then I got it enabled again and now I'm getting a lot of BSODs. It's been 0x3b ntoskrnl exe lately, but when I enabled driver verifier I was getting a different BSOD on each boot.

One of them specifically mentioned a .sys that I can't exactly remember. it was XXhalp.sys or something, and when I Googled it - everyone was talking about deleting monitor profiles from the registry and that somehow old monitor profiles were causing the BSODs, so I donno about that.

I would appreciate any help you can offer. I'll be actively monitoring this (and I'm currently in safe mode with driver verifier still enabled). So just let me know what you need.

Thanks,

Pseudo

Is there anything I can do to get someone to take a look at this?

Hi there,

There was only a single dump file and half the other info is missing from your upload but,

What seems to be causing the crash in that dump is your Intel Rapid Storage driver,

Code:
Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\iaStorA.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for iaStorA.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for iaStorA.sys
 iaStorA+0x8f9a0
Code:
 Loaded symbol image file: iaStorA.sys
    Image path: \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\iaStorA.sys

See if removing it and using Windows Native Storage drivers helps,

Remove Intel Rapid Storage Technology applications.

1. Uninstall it from Control Panel > Programs and Features.
2. Uninstall the driver from device manager:
- Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
- In the "Computer Management" window that opens:
- Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices.
- Expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
- Select one Intel device item under it, right click, then uninstall.
- Repeat the process for all Intel items under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
3. Now restart the computer.
4. Once booted, Windows will auto configure the appropriate native system driver.

Just got another BSOD. Bugcheck was 0x1a "MEMORY MANAGEMENT".

It said it saved a dumpfile, but I see no new dumpfile. Not sure what happened there. I ran the program that gathers all the information again, though, so I'll attach that zip file in case it has anything useful. If it's not updated, though, I think it is because the dump file wasn't actually saved :/

Alright, just experienced another BSOD.

Both times I was in the Steam game "War Thunder"

New BSOD was 0x7E, it names dxgmmsl(1?).sys

BSOD'd again. 0xD1. No new minidump created. I don't know why my PC has stopped creating Minidumps. Happened while playing "War Thunder" again, but this time using Open GL isntead of Direct X.
