Windows 7: BSOD 3b on new PC

BSOD 3b on new PC

As mentioned in the title i'm getting bugged by BSODS on my new pc.
They don't occur often, so far there have been six in about a week of using the pc.
The BSODS occur under various circumstances, running Speedfan, installing VS2008 or simply using Firefox.

Specs of the pc are:
Windows 7 64 bit
Core i7 860
MSI P55-GD65
4GB GeIL GV34GB1333C7DC
Sapphire HD5770 1GB GDDR5 PCIE
Samsung Syncmaster 2443BW
Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ, 1TB
Seasonic M12II 520W

Things I have tried so far are:
Checked to see if all drivers are up to date.
Ran Memtest over night for 17 passes, no errors.
Did sfc /scannow, no errors there either.
Tried to do some debugging with WinDbg but so far I haven't become much wiser.

The minidump files are attached with this post.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I'll take a look for you.

For the kernel error, three options, all referring to memory-type errors:

- Faulty or mis-matched RAM
- Corrupted/faulty page-file (virtual memory) - this can can be fixed by manually setting a - higher-than-max required page-file size
- faulty hardware drivers

For the win32k.sys error, check this out http://social.technet.microsoft.com/.../itprovistades

The latter solution may seem old, but it's definitely related since it's the same address and you have an ATi card. Try updating the drivers.

Thank you for the quick reply.
Some things that were mentioned in your link to another post here (before it was edited? http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...x0000008e.html) are:
The BIOS, which I updated to the latest version before installing Windows 7.
RAM was checked overnight with memtest with both sticks in, ran for 17 passes, no errors.
Not sure if testing them individually would be useful?
About the video card drivers. I currently have the Catalyst 10.2 drivers installed as well as the Catalyst Control Center. Would uninstalling these two and trying different (older) drivers be worth a shot?

You mentioned changing the page-file size.
Currently it has 4087mb allocated with 6130mb recommended.
Would that mean I have to set both the initial size and max size above 6130mb?

Just the maximum should do it, but like I said, there can be multiple causes.

Got 2 more bsods as shown below.
So far memtest isn't giving any errors.
I've also tested the hd with a utility, no errors there either.
No clue so far as to what driver could be causing the problem.
Afaik I've updated all of them to the latest version.
Attached the minidumps in the zip file again.

SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000007e)
This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem. Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003. This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG. This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG. This will let us see why this breakpoint is
happening.
Arguments:
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff80002f811fc, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: fffff8800337e988, Exception Record Address

I'm still getting BSODS since my last post however these have a bit more information attached to them.
I have installed Bad Company 2 this week and had several blue screens while playing that point in the direction of dxgmms1.sys.
Before installing BC2 I've uninstalled the 10.2 Catalyst drivers and installed the 10.3 ones.

I have also ran driver verifier which caused me to crash several times on the reboot with the blue screen blaming MBfilt64.sys.

Attached are the minidumps in 4 separate zip files sorted according to the driver that's to blame.

The right course seems to be to reinstall the display driver.
Should I simply uinstall the current one first and remove any leftovers with driversweeper?
Once again, any help is much appreciated.

Hmm... try testing your RAM. Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder. Boot from the CD, and run at least 5 passes.
