Windows 7: Help with random BSODs

Help with random BSODs


I am having trouble with random BSODs, the system will lock up unexpectedly (sometime while surfing the web and sometimes while nobody is using the system). I have opened the .dmp files and noticed all seem to point to ntoskrnl.exe. I do not know what this is or why it is causing problems. My system data is correct in my profile and I have attached a .zip file of the minidumps. Can someone please help me with this issue?

Thanks in advance!

Hi and welocome

Well I just took a quick look at the last 2 dumps. There are 2 probable causes. First Memory
Second cirrupt system files

Ok I would download ans run memtestx86 for hours (prefereably overnight)

I would alswo run a system file check to verify and repair any system files that are not right

It is going to take me a while to run the rest of those dumps so I suggest you not wait for the results

Hope this helps

The pool is already corrupt at the time of the current request.
This may or may not be due to the caller.
The internal pool links must be walked to figure out a possible cause of
the problem, and then special pool applied to the suspect tags or the driver
verifier to a suspect driver.
Arg1: 0000000000000020, a pool block header size is corrupt.
Arg2: fffffa800260d000, The pool entry we were looking for within the page.
Arg3: fffffa800260d600, The next pool entry.

Thanks for the welcome and suggestions. I ran memtestx86 v3.5 overnight (about 9 hours completed just over 6 pases). No errors were found.

I also ran "sfc /scannow" from windows cmd run as administrator. Again no errors were found.

If you have any other suggestions I can try I would appreciate it.

Thanks again!

Windows 7 Professional

Out of frustration with this problem last night I did a clean install of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. Before installing I ran killdisk to completely erase the destination drive.

Last night everything seemed fine, until this morning when it blue screened while resuming from hibernate. A short while later it blue screened while resuming from sleep. I don't know if this is the same issue as before but it is just as frustrating!

I have attached the new .dmp files to this post. Please help as I am out of ideas!
