Windows 7: Various BSOD with fresh install of Windows 7 Pro 64bit

Various BSOD with fresh install of Windows 7 Pro 64bit

So I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 Pro 64bit on an old computer that was Windows XP. The old computer had occasionally had BSOD. The new install of Windows 7 was fine to begin with but now I have had various BSOD over the last week. The computer is completely updated and all device drivers are up to date with the 64bit versions. I have also run MS ram tester which didnt throw anything up however will run it again later to double check.

I have attached the minidump zip file as per the forum instructions. The specs of the system I have also filled out in my bio bit.

Help you be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello and welcome LightningSeed mate my debugger is malfunctioning right now but from seeing the machine is ?probably reasonably old and the RAM is DDR2? plus you mention running a RAM/memtest.

But if you are going to do that please use this tutorial because any other RAM / memtest is not worth the while of running and it requires at least 8 passes before the findings are conclusive and we recommend the memtest is done overnight because it takes along time and that is the time you least need the machine unless you are a night owl of course RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Do this first and meanwhile I shall try to get into the dump files again.

Sorry I haven't been able to get on been busy with family.

Yes its DDR2, PC3200. Ive got the Memtest86+ on a CD and will run it tonight and report findings. Other than RAM only other things im concerned it could be are the 64 bit Version of Windows 7 I installed and the system cannot fully handle it? Or would it not boot at all? Should I try 32 bit version?

Or the GPU drivers or GPU itself has an issue?

Thanks

Had a quick look at your event log,
Its showing a Port A down error, on yukon7, usually means router is recycling.
is it taking you long to connect to Internet?.
Id check these drivers first, Ethernet/Wifi

As per Roy's answer mate it does not matter what bit version the machine is running at as the RAM does not discrimate between 23 and 64bit anyway - it is simply RAM and it can be used with either but versions and in ant case memtest runs independent of Windows - hence the boot from the disk

No internet issues. I ran Memtest for 8 passes and no errors were reported so id assume that eliminates the RAM.

Ok mate lets start then with a very basic thing I lie to get out of the way

Using HW Info

PART A:

You can test the volts onthe PSU with HW Info HWiNFO,HWiNFO32/64 - Download <download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensorsand scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts aredoing see my pic. In my pic the section (Nuvoton)with VBATT is a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages.There are other section titles and one that pops up often is ITE

Now the voltage on thedifferent rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machinewill not work properly if at all.

See this for the railvoltage info

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/power-supply-specifications-atx-reference,3061.html (Section 2.)

The original right handwindow shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at thecomponents in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel

FOR OTHER COMPONENTS

PART B:

Open each small squarewith + in it on the section the components are in and then click on theindividual component/s (it willhighlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of detailsincluding brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. Seepic for example.

What do I need to post with regards to information from that program?

Well I need you to run HW Info as per the instructions close the right hand panels that first open up and then click on Sensors. That will take you to a new window/panel that is full of information about what the machines sensors are picking up and they are in "sections".

That done I want you to scroll down the sections until you get to one that looks like that one in my previous pic. It is the section that has the readout for the PSU and it is quite easily recognized by having some info titled VBATT or Vbatt. You will see the different voltages for the PSU rails ie 12v 5v and 3.3v.
You can snip and send a pic or just quote the voltages it is up to you.

Now these voltages are absolutely critical to the correct working of all components in the machine and as stated in my ditty any voltage that is less (-) than or more than (+) the required voltage by more than 5% of the total will affect the machine by either by trashing the component or will not let it work the way it should. ie 12v should be no less than 11.4v and no more than 12.6v

Now if you know anything about CPU's for example you will know that overclockers increase the speed at which the CPU frequency is affected by even the tiniest increase in the voltage required to work at normal (factory default) settings.
So lets say the CPU runs at 3.6GHz at 1.2v normally - now an increase of 0.2v may make that same CPU work at 3.9GHz - that is just an example of what I am trying to say. The same goes for other components too ie the GPU.

So the PSU to me is a very important place to start at when trying to diagnose because if it isn't working properly it stands to reason nothing else is going to work properly if at all. It is a very underrated components when it comes to sorting out problems within a machine because people take it for granted.

Just for good measure within that link I sent http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/power-supply-specifications-atx-reference,3061.html (Section 2.) you will see that the PSU has it's own safety circuitry built in to not let the machine start and even shut it down should the voltages being produced are not within the correct ranges required or drop out as the ones I have laid out above.

Sorry to be so long winded but I work on a process of elimination and the PSU is the obvious place to start.
