Garbled BSOD in new Windows 7 Upgrade

Hi all,

I am hoping you can help me with this BSOD. I am running an HP Pavilion a1310n with an AMD Athlon 3700+ processor, with 3 Gb RAM. About a week or so ago, I upgraded from XP Media Center 2005 to Windows 7 Home Premium.

Since then, I have had a BSOD at least once a day. It seems to occur a bit randomly, whether I am online web browsing, or working on MS Word, which I have been doing the most of lately. (Thankfully, I was smart enough to turn on the 1-minute autosave for Word, or I would be in deep trouble.)

The BSOD is all garbled lines, so I can't offer any input as to what it says. Although I did take a picture of it, just in case that helps. The shutdown message states the following:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.768.3
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: c2
BCP1: 00000007
BCP2: 00001097
BCP3: 00000000
BCP4: FFA3D0FF
OS Version: 6_1_7600
Service Pack: 0_0
Product: 768_1

Files that help describe the problem:
C:\Windows\Minidump\122909-42671-01.dmp
C:\Users\Matt\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-63906-0.sysdata.xml

I have attached the MiniDump file, as per your instructions. If anyone can offer advice, I would truly appreciate it!

I am sure there is someone way more knowledgeable who will be able to help you out with the minidump you have provided but for me the thing that stands out is when you siad that you upgraded...did you perform an upgrade or was it a clean install? I personally think if you upgraded and did not do a clean install, then the BSOD could be a result of that.

Hi and welcome probably caused by memory.
I would dl memtestx86 run it for 5 passes

do a system file check to verify and repair your system files
type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow

Hi digitalrurouni,

Sorry, I should have chosen my words better. It was, in fact, a clean install; my previous OS seemed marred by many problems, so I thought wiping everything would be the best strategy.

Hi Ken/Zigzag,

Thank you for the advice. I tried running memtestx86, but it would not complete either time. The first time it got 13% through, the second time 99% through, and then it hung up. However, it did indicate that there was a hardware problem, so I decided to pull out the old RAM chips and just leave in the pair of newer 1 Gb chips. I am running mentest again and will let you know if that helps.
