Windows 7: BSOD on Brand new Self-Built PC..

25 Sep 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

I agree with cybercore. Use MSE while you are troubleshooting. Avast runs well with Win 7 also; but stick to MSE until you get your system running smoothly. To backup what cybercore recommended, let Memtest run for at least seven passes. This will probably take sis or seven hours.

I also do not think the antivirus is the problem; but it is mentioned in one of the error codes as a possible cause. You want to eliminate all known possible causes while you are troubleshooting.

We will be here. I should add that if errors show up you can stop the test. At that point pull all of your RAM but one stick and test that stick. If that stick passes, pull it and test the next stick.

That is good news. It does not help us find the problem; but it does say your hardware is performing properly. I would like for you to run Memtest again-from a cold boot after your system has been off for a while. This is scenario is apparently when you get your crashes.

After you run Memtest again and if you receive no errors, I recommend that you enable Driver Verifier. The instructions are in this excellent tutorial by Jonathan King: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable. Upload any BSOD's generated by Driver Verifier.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Ok here it goes...I left my pc off overnight, started it up this morning, went straight into memtest and from 0% it brought up 60,000 errors :S
I stopped it after that, pressed ESC so it would restart the system (like it does when BSOD shows up), turned it off by the ON/OFF button, then after 5 seconds turned it back on again, ran the memtest and no errors showed up.So i'm guessing the problem is my RAM after a cold-boot??

There is obviously a memory issue at cold boot. It could be the RAM, a bad RAM slot, or a memory controller problem. It could even be a PSU problem. I am going to ask the hardware guys to take a look at this thread. I am not a hardware expert; but we definitely have some here. I am not sure what to do next; so I will get some help.

Test each stick individually till you find one that passes, then begin to test each slot to eliminate the possibility of bad slots on the motherboard... replace the ram that fails on good slots.. Hope this helps...

Windows 7 Ult x64 - SP1/ Windows 8 Pro x64

This issue will usually end up being fixed by RMA'ing the RAM.

There are a few things we can check first.

Re-seat all the cables and power connections.

Re-seat the RAM, take it out and make sure it is firmly in place.

D/L CPUZ and post the CPU, Mainboard, Memory and SPD tabs, using the snipping tool.

For snipping tool, start button> in the search box type 'Snipping tool' >enter.
Select the area you want to copy, save to a convient place.

What is the BIOS version?

If you don't have you motherboard manual download it and read the BIOS voltage section.
Check the motherboard version before D/L the manual. It's on the lower left corner of your motherboard.

We can adjust some of the RAM and NB voltages and see if this helps.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

The last time I saw a cold boot issue like this it was a power supply problem of some sort. It seemed to be a problem with the board not getting enough power on a cold boot causing it not to boot up correctly. Good work on the trouble shooting guys.
