Windows 7: Random and constant BSODS.

Random and constant BSODS.

Hi there!
I've built my new rig two weeks go... but I haven't tested it with my favourite videogames yet, since it's BSODS are a constant problem...
They appear in any moment... using windows and using games...
Using windows, the BSODS may appear a few seconds after logging in, or after 12 hours....
But when i get into a game, it wont last 5 minutes... and that if i'm lucky... i dont think it's a overheat problem, since i've monitoring the temperatures and they dont seem to go to unstable values... and also, here in argentina, it's freezing a lot :P
I'm running out of hope... I've reinstallet windows twice... and now i'm thinking of trying with windows XP... but it would be a shame, since my Videocard supports DX11...
Here is a list of what i've saw in the minidumps and in the BSODS... but dont trust this, since i've started using minidumps 3 days ago :P

Code:
BSODs:
0x00000008E
BAD_POOL_HEADER
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
0x0000000A
0x0000000c2
0x000000019

Files:
USBPORT.sys
ntkrnlpa.exe
rt86win7.sys
atikmdag.sys
dxgmms1.sys
win32k.sys ( win32k+b64d5 )
CLASSPNP.SYS ( CLASSPNP+45a4 )
ntkrnlpa.exe ( nt+683fd )
CLASSPNP.SYS ( CLASSPNP+42f8 )
ntkrnlpa.exe ( nt+380e9 )
hardware ( atikmdag+26d6ce )
Rt86win7.sys ( Rt86win7+106d2 )
hardware ( fltmgr+21473 )
ntkrnlpa.exe ( nt+89000 )
fltmgr.sys
Also, i've ran memtest, and it shows only 1 error per pass, in the test #8...

My system configuration (as seen on my profile) is:
Code:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate X86          CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 620          Motherboard: MSI 770-C45          Memory: OCZ 2GB 1333MHz (PC3-10666) DDR3 (ocz3g1333lv2g)          Graphics  Card(s): Sapphire HD 5770 Vapor-X 1GB DDR5          Sound  Card: Integrated          Monitor(s)  Displays: Samsung SyncMaster 550v (Soon upgrade :P)          Hard  Drives: Western Digital 500 GB          PSU: CoolerMaster eXtremePower Plus 600W          Case: Thermaltake M9          Cooling: Factory cooling.
Thank you for your time!
PS: i'm uploading also all my minidumps so far...

If memtest shows any errors at all there is no way your system will run stable. You might try testing one stick at a time to find the bad one, or make sure your bios memory settings are correct for your memory. OCZ memory tends to require very specific memory settings in order to run stable. You might try the OCZ forums for this info.

These were all caused by different things. when there is that many causes one has to thnk hardware. use these to find out what that means and what to try.

To add to Ken's post, here are some instructions for hardware tests.

For RAM:
Quote:
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 passes.
For CPU:
Quote:
Try this free stress test: Free Software - GIMPS
Quote:
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead.
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.
For hard drive: HD Diagnostic

BUMP
I just ran the HDD test with the tool for my correspondient disk, and everything went fine...
Proof:

I could not use the booteable CD... when i loaded it, it says that it was "unable to locate the license agreement file blablabla.txt", and it was there... so i used the in-windows tool... and booted in SafeMode to run it...
Later, i'll test again the CPU with Prime95 in safemode, but for now i'll test the memory with memtest 4.10... which works ok as booteable cd...
Cya tomorrow! i hope at least the memory go ok =/

I have to suspect CPU. I will contact a few people who can back me up before I recommend an expensive purchase such as that.

Are you overclocking at all? I so, restore it immediately.
