Windows 7: BSOD while using more memory-intensive programs

More BSOD's, this time 2 in a row. Windows went to start-up repair, but was unable to fix the problem. Both didn't create a mini-dump file, just a corrupt 'Memory' dump under Windows folder again. Only useful info I found was that the stop was 0x3b. Not sure if using dm log will be useful.

Anytime you get a BSOD posting the logs can be very useful.

Your BSOD team need those logs.

Layback Bear,

Thanks for the reply. I apologize for the presumption. As a precaution, I did the elevated command prompts again for WinDBg, to make sure it's associated. I'm including the latest DM log, hopefully it is helpful.

I don't want to confuse the issue, but there are some things about my RAM concern me. Taking a look at the Asus Qualified Vendor List (see attached), I don't show that CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B is on there. In addition, even though I have it set to 1600 mHz, and voltage to 1.5v via BIOS (timing is displayed correctly), Speccy lists the DRAM frequency @ 800 mHz. I've included a snapshot text file for Speccy for consideration.

At this point I'd like to give as much information as possible, since the stop errors aren't consistent. I am theorizing that if it isn't a driver-related crash, then either the RAM, motherboard, or the GTX 560 are hardware issues.

The last two logs haven't included any new dumps unfortunately. Can you follow these instructions to check if you are set to record memory dumps:
  1. Open Advanced System Settings
  2. Click on Settings in Startup & Recovery
  3. Make sure both boxes indicated below are checked
  4. In the dropdown box ensure you're set to record Small Memory Dumps

Boozad,

Ok, done. It was not set for small memory dumps for some reason. I don't know why it changed. I assume we need new BSOD's since the log didn't catch these others. Seems if I use more GPU-intensive programs the BSOD's occur, but 'correlation is not causation' as it were. I'll post a new DM log if I get some more recent ones.

Excellent, at least we know you're set to catch them now.

I was able to get another BSOD, and it looks like it created a viable mini dump. I've attached it below.

Well, two in a row while playing games. Note the first one was Star Trek Online, second one was Left 4 Dead 2. I'm going to include a new log with just those two mini-dumps, so ignore that last attachment.
