Windows 7: BSOD from pretty much anything

BSOD from pretty much anything

Hello people of the internet.

I've been having some major trouble with my PC and I'm really at a loss now.
Please note that I'm using a Swedish OS so if I'm using some unfamiliar terms it's probably because of trouble with the translation.

The bluescreens started started about a month ago but they weren't that frequent, then about two weeks ago I couldn't boot to Windows. Startup repair couldn't solve the problem and neither could a system recovery.
I spoke to the supplier of my PC and they thought the problem was related to my SSD or the RAM, so I got a new SSD which I installed Windows 7 on.
This did not help.
I also tried moving the four 2gb RAM sticks around to no avail.

The BSOD kept on coming, always very randomly.
When I use Firefox, when I click the start menu, and even when I just leave the PC idle.


The BSOD never finish either, they pretty much always stop at "Initializing disk for crash dump ..." so I always have to shut the PC off manually.
Only once did the BSOD actually finish which gave me a crash dump file which I analysed with BlueScreenView:

Dump File Time : 2015-05-13 11:40:29
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After that I tried installing Memtest86 and scanned my RAM over night.
I found more and more errors which each scan.
Here's the result of the latest run:


After finding more and more errors during these scans I assumed that the problems were memory related, so I ordered some new RAM.

This did not help one bit. I replaced my four 2GB sticks with two 4GB and I'm still getting BSOD and I think they are even more frequent now.


I really don't know what else to do here.
I've also posted on a Swedish forum, but I'm not getting any help and this is getting very frustrating to say the least.

I'm including the zip-file as requested.

Hello and welcome Machine there are some refs you posted there that are to do with Windows updates one thing you could try to do is a system restore and try to track down the update that might be causing this problem.
Code:
*******************************************************************************
*                                                                             *

*******************************************************************************
CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION (109)
This bugcheck is generated when the kernel detects that critical kernel code or
data have been corrupted. There are generally three causes for a corruption:
1) A driver has inadvertently or deliberately modified critical kernel code
 or data. See Kernel patch protection for x64-based operating systems
2) A developer attempted to set a normal kernel breakpoint using a kernel
 debugger that was not attached when the system was booted. Normal breakpoints,
 "bp", can only be set if the debugger is attached at boot time. Hardware
 breakpoints, "ba", can be set at any time.
3) A hardware corruption occurred, e.g. failing RAM holding kernel code or data.
Arguments:
Arg1: a3a039d89a31d4ef, Reserved
Arg2: 0000000000000000, Reserved
Arg3: 4d3851eeb5113f78, Failure type dependent information
Arg4: 0000000000000101, Type of corrupted region, can be
 0 : A generic data region
 1 : Modification of a function or .pdata
 2 : A processor IDT
 3 : A processor GDT
 4 : Type 1 process list corruption
 5 : Type 2 process list corruption
 6 : Debug routine modification
 7 : Critical MSR modification
Going on this I would also be inclined to run these for starters anyway
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1538-sfc-scannow-command-system-file-checker.html
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2

if no go these I would also run

http://www.superantispyware.com/
http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/
ADW download from bleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans
(NB If one is running Kaspersky security it may rant about ADW - just ignore it or disable Kaspersky while the ADW is being used)

PS Meant to add look in the Device Manager and see if there are any yellow triangles against any of the hardware items

Thanks for your input ICIT2LOL.

I tried SFC /SCANNOW and Disk Check without finding any errors at all.
I couldn't find any yellow triangles in the device manager either.

As I got BSOD right after formatting the system I didn't bother with scanning for spy and malware.

So I'm still having trouble with BSOD. Nothing has changed.
I even think the crashes are even more frequent now.

Shouldn't the fact that the BSOD never finish and leave a crash dump be a good hint at what's wrong?

Do you mean the system is not recording mini dump files?

Nope. I've lost count of all the BSOD I've had in the last few weeks, but there are no mini dump files since may 13.
