Windows 7: BSODs caused by many different drivers - not sure where to start

BSODs caused by many different drivers - not sure where to start

Hello,

I have had this problem on and off since I built my computer two years ago. At various points I've attempted to fix it but never had much success.

I've attached the dump files for the last week here.

Potentially relevant information:

Over the past two years I have at some point:
-Flashed my bios
- re-installed windows (multiple times)
- removed an SSD I thought might be causing problems
-updated my drivers

~Obviously none of these fixed the problem, though flashing the bios did seem to decrease the frequency~
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Over the last couple weeks I have:
-run a disk check (and /f in safe mode)
- Installed new RAM sticks (removing the old ones) -The last two BSOD's occurred after changing the RAM-
- updated my graphics card drivers
-reformatted my hard drive
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm at my wit's end, and am completely overwhelmed. A search of each of these errors gives me a large list of potential problems and I don't know where to start. I am hoping that there is some clue in the dmp files that could tell us if there is some root cause to these varied errors. If you need any other information I will do my best to give it to you.

Thank you so much for your time and help,

Zach

I realize that there are a lot of these threads, so they can't all get full attention. I've been continuing to diagnose the problem over that last couple of days.

I recently replaced my 2 sticks of ram, with 2 different sticks. For both RAM configurations running memtest came back with errors. I checked the BIOS to make sure that they were using conservative frequency and voltage. It seems far too coincidental that both the old sticks and the brand new ones I installed are both faulty. Is there some other third party problem that could explain this?

Thanks,
Zach

Did you test with MemTest86+?

I'll assume you did......you could have a motherboard problem, specifically an issue with the RAM DiMM slot. Lets test:

1. Remove all RAM DiMM's, with the exception of one of them - make sure its in RAM DiMM slot #1 on the motherboard.
2. Run 8 consecutive passes of MemTest86+ - do you get errors?

I have to admit, that I was using the standard memtest that you can run while booted.

I am currently testing the new sticks (both of them) with the memtest86, If I get errors I will move on to one stick and report back here when that's complete.

-One complete pass has finished and No errors from Memtest86 for my two new sticks of memory, not sure what that's indicative of-

Thanks for your help,

I finished my passes with the two new sticks of RAM and didn't get any errors. What does this mean? Should I still do the test with 1 stick?

Thanks,
Zach

I completed the 8 Memtest86 passes with one RAM DiMM and I found no errors.


I have been experiencing considerable more BSOD since installing the 2 new sticks of memory, I'm not sure if that means anything.

I have some more minidump files that I will post when I get back from lunch.

Thanks,
Zach

Did you run MemTest86+ on the new RAM?
