Windows 7: Been having BSOD issues, like many on here.

Been having BSOD issues, like many on here.

I have been trying to figure it out, which hardware is causing the issues and am looking for ideas. I ran memtest for 15 hours no errors found in my ram, i also ran a CPU burn in utility (orthos) for 26 hours testing stability and did not find a problem. I know this is not much to go on for ideas. i will upload the .dmp files next time it happens but at this point i tried to reinstall windows 7.

ntoskrnl.exe was the only thing listed in the dump files i looked through.

We can examine the DMP files in ways you cant.

If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Start your own thread in the "Crashes and Debugging" section of the forum and attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

Yea, i plan on doing that once it happens again. I was just looking for things i could rule out. Would the dmps be able to pin point the exact problem? such as say my PSU is going bad and hardware is not getting enough volts or to much?

Dumps can reveal what drivers are running, what process was running, etc. If they all point to your video card, the logical step is to play with drivers or try a different card.

Or, we do specific hardware tests, such as RAM, hard drive, and CPU.

Please follow these directions for posting BSODs: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

Don't post a new thread, just attach the Windows7_Vista_Jcgriff2 folder to your next post in this one.

While i have no .dmp files because it crashed with no OS installed during the install process i think i found the problem for it all. My mobo supports DDR3 1666(OC)/1333/1066 which i thought running my 2x2bg of ram at 1600 would be fine but apparently it can only run 1 stick at that. since iv changed the setting iv had no problems yet with blue screens when i was seeing them quite frequently.

Alright i thought i have solved this. It has not happend as frequently as it was cept for the first time today while reinstalling all my games. Heres a copy of the dump, im sure it is something RAM related and i do think a stick may be goin bad if not both.

The dump is a 0x4E dump, which is a memory corruption dump. This is probably a driver issue rather than a RAM issue, however, hardware could be at fault. I need to see the PTE and PFN table and walk the memlist, and unfortunately I'm not going to be able to see from a minidump. We are going to have to get at least a kernel dump, but preferably a full dump, to get to the bottom of this one, unfortunately.

How can i get one of those for you? How ever i have ran memtest for 15 hours with no RAM errors found. Failing PSU? maybe even bad slots on the mobo?

You need to make sure your paging file is RAM+64MB at least (for both MIN and MAX values) under system properties > advanced > performance > settings > advanced > change, and the dump type is set to complete under system properties > advanced > startup and recovery > settings > write debugging information. If you make any changes, you have to reboot for them to take effect.

Please enable driver verifier to show us which driver is causing the problem: Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers
