Windows 7: BSOD while using more memory-intensive programs

BSOD while using more memory-intensive programs

Hello, I have been experience multiple BSODs, especially when using more memory-intensive programs, and have yet to determine the cause. I have run Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool after the last one, and it reported no errors. I have downloaded the Windbg Toolkit, and have followed the instructions, but need assistance in translating the information. Attached is my current Minidump files.

Thank you in advance.

Download and run MemTest86+ to test your RAM. RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Note   Note
Attachment 352665

Run MemTest86+ for at least 8 passes. Ideally set it off before you go to bed and leave it overnight, we're looking for zero errors here. A single error will show something's going bad with your RAM.


Run the test and report back with the results.

Thank you for your reply. I ran the Memtest for 11 passes, and no errors were detected. I have attached an image of the Memtest for verification of this. While I guess that it not showing any memory errors is good, it's still leaves me to wonder what the cause of the BSOD's is. What would you recommend as the next step?

That's good news, I wanted to ensure your RAM was good before we moved forwards. There are a few instances showing up in your dumps which I'll outline below, please follow the steps listed then check system stability.

1: Norton is causing multiple issues.

Code:
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for IDSvia64.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for IDSvia64.sys
 IDSvia64+0xc310

Uninstall Norton and install MS Security Essentials and MalwareBytes.

Make sure you uncheck the 'Enable Free Trial' box when installing MalwareBytes.




2: Your nVidia driver has been flagged. Download this earlier version from here and follow NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems for the cleanest possible install.

3: Your nVidia nForce Network driver is causing problems. It's old and needs updating.

Well, back again. After following your advice, I am still getting BSOD's. Note that I couldn't find a newer driver for #3 (Nvidia nforce Network)anywhere, but I don't have an external ethernet device on any PCI devices, it is internal. Could this be the driver for the Motherboard? I have attached a new log to provide the most recent BSOD's. Let me know if there is more information you require.

Is your CPU overclocked at all?

Boozad,

Thank you for replying. It should be at factory BIOS settings. Would you like me to post some screenshots of the configuration in BIOS?

No that's fine. I have to hit the sack now, I'm beat after a long late shift but will look further into your dumps tomorrow. I'm pretty sure there's a hardware problem somewhere so we'll have to run some tests. Please bear with me and I'll get back to you tomorrow night.

Boozad,

So, being frustrated, I decided to run Verifier to stress the drivers, and it looks like the older Nvidia driver(s) you suggested a rollback to are causing issues. I let it BSOD 3 times, and it all pointed to nvlddmkm.sys. I am not sure if this has any relevance, but figured it was worth testing. Note I followed the instructions on using Verifier here: Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers

I was going to run Furmark, but I do have reservations about knowing the temperature threshold for the GeForce GTX 560 and when to stop testing. I didn't want to burn it up.

Thanks for checking these, hope you got some rest.

It certainly looks like your GPU is causing problems. Do you know what your card's temperatures are both idle and under load?
