Windows 7: BSOD - Windows 7 x86

I just went a good 2 hours with a fully working no BSODing computer and then one BSOD and about 6 more to follow it. Will upload most recent dump files shortly.

Edit: (5) contains most recent flurry of BSODs after working fine for several hours.

That is a whole lot of dumps. I looked at 11 of them. Of that 11, 9 were pointing to memory corruption. Your nvstor32.sys driver is updated. Good job. It still puzzles me why it is being referenced in some of the dumps. You had a variety of error codes which is indicative of hardware problems.

Our next step is to test your RAM. This will not be a fast process. Follow the instructions in the tutorial liked below and post back with the results. Errors will show on your screen in red.

Yeah, sorry about the large amount there, haha. Just thought i'd post up what I had so you could check whatever you'd like.

I was actually going to do a memory check today whilst I was waiting but when initilizing the program I got an error message saying something along the lines of it couldn't run and it was perhaps of a faulty installation file. I tried re-installing it twice and got the same message each time. Does the USB which I use this on need to be of a certain size for it to work?

Thanks again for your help.

Edit: Tried again and the exact message is: 'Error decrompressing data! Corrupted Installer?'

Going to try again without formatting the USB (after googling and finding out that the error message is related to formatting and not the program itself) before I go to bed tonight and leave it on overnight. Thanks again for all the help.

If you can't run it via USB, try burning it to a CD.

Ran the Memtest with 8 passes over 10 hours last night and did not recieve any errors, so i'm really not sure what the problem is now. ):

Any idea what it may be?

Thanks.

That means you RAM is probably OK which is good news. I would like for you to monitor your temps while you are using your system with Speedfan. Temperatures going too high can cause crashes. Post back with your highest temp readings; you can do a screen snip if you like and upload it. And upload any new dumps you get.

Thought the issue had somewhat resolved itself after not causing any BSODs at all on a few start-ups. This error seems to come and go whatever it is. I'm currently using my desktop without and issue, but when trying to turn it on around 5 hours ago, the usual series of BSODs again and again stopped me from doing what I was doing, or even logging in.

Speedfan test for resting temprature can be found here: http://img683.imageshack.us/img683/6...eedfantest.png

Speedfan test once in a high graphiced game and so at higher running temprature can be found here: http://img823.imageshack.us/img823/6...antesthigh.png

This was after leaving the game open for 2 minutes, it is continuing to rise past this level currently though. I will leave it open and see to what extreme it gets to.

Have also attached recent BSODs from today.

Thanks again for the help.

Do you know what the maximum temps are for your GFX card and your CPU? You want to make sure you are not above the max. Your GFX temp is about the same as mine. Your CPU temp is about 10 degrees warmer than mine. However, I don't think heat, at this point, is causing the crashes.

Idling temps

Attachment 96967

High temps

Attachment 96968

Crashing during the booting process indicates a hardware/driver problem. I looked at four of your recent dumps; all indicate hardware/hardware related problems.

Error code D1, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - usually caused by a device driver.

Error code A, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - usual causes are Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility

Error code 8E (two of these), KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED - Insufficient disk space, Device driver, Video card, BIOS, Breakpoint in startup without having a debugger attached, Hardware incompatibility, Faulty system service, 3rd party remote control, Memory

The dumps are still pointing to memory corruption and do give us a specific cause. All of your drivers appear to be up to date.

Let's test your CPU. Monitor your temps during this test. Follow the instructions in Jonathan's excellent tutorial:
https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...t-prime95.html. Post back with the results.

Next, test your graphics card using this excellent tutorial, also by Jonathan:
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark. Post back with the results.

After running these tests, if no problems are found are found, eliminate some of your startup programs. Run MSCONFIG, click on the Startup tab and uncheck the following programs:

Adobe Reader Speed Launcher
CarboniteSetupLite
Google Desktop Search
SmpcSys - Set Up My PC" utility supplied with some Packard Bell computers
SunJavaUpdateSched
tsnpstd3 - tsnpstd3 Microsoft or tsnp2std Microsoft belongs to the software tsnpstd3.exe or tsnp2std by SONIX. This appears to be associated with your webcam; maybe the tray icon?
toolbar_eula_launcher
VirtualCloneDrive

Let's see if this impacts the BSOD's during booting. If it does, you can put one back at a time until you find the one that may be conflicting. None of these appear to be necessary for running Windows. If they are things you don't use frequently, leave them unchecked.

I can't seem to run furmark for long enough at the moment without another bsod ):

Also, with prime95, does it need to be left running for 12 hours or is that just a guideline?

Edit: Computer decided to stop bsoding for a while and am now running furmark How long should I leave it running?

Run it until the temp levels out.

The 12 hours is a guideline; but it needs to be followed. Sometimes problems don't show up for a while.
