Windows 7: BSOD - Windows 7 x86

BSOD - Windows 7 x86

Have tried multiple things with this BSOD and have already had some advice on how to resolve the issue which has proved null and void unfortunatly as I am still recieving persistant BSODs of all different varietys.

Had this issue for quite some time now rendering my pc somewhat useless. Sometimes the BSOD starts before I even get the chance to log on, some times I can use the computer for a good 15 minutes before it BSODs. Also, numerous numbers of different BSODs happening. The information I know are as follows:

OS - Windows 7 x86 (32-bit)
Windows Vista x86 (32-Bit)
Full retail version
System Age: About 2 years
Recently installed Windows 7 about a week ago but had issues with BSODs before installation.
Processor: Intel Quad Core Processor 4 x 2.2GHz
Video Card: Nvidea 8800GT

Most recent minidumps including Performance monitor report can be found attached.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Jordyi; I am sorry you are having problems. I will take a look.

I looked at six of your dumps and all but one are Driver Verifier Enabled dumps. For the time being, turn off Driver Verifier. Most of the dumps are pointing to Windows system drivers or hardware. One points to nvlddmkm.sys. Two dumps implicate nvstor32.sys.

The error code of the non Driver Verifier enabled dump is D1, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - usually caused by a device driver.

Code:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (d1)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If kernel debugger is available get stack backtrace.

I took a look at your drivers and found this very obsolete driver. Out of date drivers cause conflicts , memory corruption, and crashes. Generally, Win 7 does not like old drivers.

nvstor32.sys Wed Oct 31 15:21:57 2007 - nVidia Storage Driver (nForce chipset driver) Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers.

Turn off Driver Verifier, update this driver, reboot and run your system. Let's see how it runs. If you get another BSOD, upload it and we will take the next step. Do let us know when you have updated the driver.

You are welcome. I have finished for now. Refresh your page. I cannot guarantee that 2007 driver was causing the crashes; but I can assure you it is not contributing to the stability of your system. Let's hope the fix is that simple. If not, we will test your RAM. When you get BSOD's during booting or shortly after booting, it is an indication of a hardware/hardware related problem.

Ah. The person who helped me before also said that I should update this driver and I thought I had done so but it seems that I havn't.

When I go on the Nvidea website I updated the driver for my Nvidea 8800GT video/graphics card. Is there perhaps another item I need to update other than this that is related to this driver?

Edit: Just got a BSOD stating 'Memory_Management' being the cause. Havn't seen this one before. Not sure if that helps you at all but just thought i'd say.

Go to the NVidia website and do a search for nvstor32.sys. There is an updated version of this driver. If your computer is a laptop, try the laptop manufacturer's website first since this is a chipset driver.

Obviously, I haven't seen the latest dump; but faulty drivers can cause memory corruption, thus the memory management error. Once you update this driver, if you still get BSOD's, the next step will be to test your RAM.

It will help us help you if you will fill out your system specs. Go to your User CP at the top of the page, look in the left column and click on Edit system specs. Filling in your specs will help us help you.

You can make this easier by downloading Speccy

A search for the specific driver isn't showing any results for me on the website. ):

Perhaps your having more luck than myself, or there is another way to obtain this driver?

System Specs attached.

Edit: Ahhh, I see now. My motherboard is an Nvidea chipset. Ahhh. So I need to update the motherboard drivers?

Edit2: Seems as though the file for my chipset also works with my graphics card and wasn't anything new. The driver is still somewhat not updated. ):

I will need the name and model of your motherboard and your chipset. See my post above for filling out your specs. I am signing off for the night; but will try to find the driver or a workaround tomorrow. I found several workarounds through Google; but I don't have your hardware information. Don't give up; we will find a solution.

Edited: Yes, you need to update the chipset drivers. Good job!! I noticed that driver is not updated with the graphics card. I will find you a solution tomorrow.

Alright. Even though I don't own any nforce specific devices, I downloaded and installed an nforce package and updated versions of nvstor32.sys are now on my computer.

They've created a new folder in C:/NVIDEA/... though and not in C:/Windows/Drivers/... where the other nvstor32.sys is. Will this still be okay?

Thanks for all your help so far, and I can wait for a reply don't worry.

Still getting a few BSODs but luckily not as many varieties as before as of last night.

A few Memory_Management BSODs and one Driver_IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal Bsod.

Most recent BSODs are attached to this post.
