Windows 7: Random lockups and BSODs

I called up my PC shop today, where I bought the bits that I built the machine with. They told me to check the voltage setting on my RAM. It was set at 1.5 v by default, however my RAM sticks state it should be 1.65 v ! I've changed this now, and will keep monitoring things.

Hi there, well after a few days of my PC behaving, today I have had an instance where a game (Lord of the Rings Online) stopped working and crashed back to Win 7 desktop (although my PC stayed up in Windows ok). I then had another instance of this problem but this was followed straight away by my usual problem of the screen going fuzzy and a BSOD, which said "Video memory management has stopped working or encountered a problem (or something along those lines)".

I've attached the usual zip file with this BSOD in it (I think the previous mini dump file of 15th Nov is also included in this zip file, with the one dumped today on the 28th Nov).

I'm almost at the point of giving up and buying a whole new PC, ready built and tested - this sounds a bit extreme, but I just can't get to the bottom of what is wrong with my PC.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

I also had some more lock-ups and some BSODs later on this evening. In particular at one point, my PC wouldn't start up at the bios stage and was emitting a frequent bleeping noise until I re-started it.

Attached is an updated zip file with the new BSOD mini-dump files included.

Thanks !

Hi; I am sorry to hear you are still having problems. I went back through this thread and it looks like you have tested just about everything possible. The fact that you have four different error codes in four dumps leads me to suspect a hardware problem.
Quote:
Bugcheck A, VIDEO_MEMORY_MANAGEMENT_INTERNAL. Usual causes: Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility.

Bugcheck 10E, VIDEO_MEMORY_MANAGEMENT_INTERNAL. Usual causes: Video driver, ?Video memory

Bugcheck 4E, PFN_LIST_CORRUPT. Usual causes: Device driver, ?memory.

Bugcheck D1, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Usually caused by a driver.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
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 a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: fffffa7ff3ffffe0, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000001, bitfield :
    bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
Arg4: fffff80002ad1e89, address which referenced memory

I have to agree with Jonathan. I think your motherboard may be at fault or possibly you power supply. Do you have access to another known good power supply you could try?

Hi there, thanks for the response as ever. I don't have access to another PSU unfortunately. I do still have my old motherboard, so I could rebuild my PC using that with my old RAM etc. However, since that will take some time and this has been going on for 2 months now, I think I will let my local PC shop test it. If they can't find anything wrong with it, I will likely buy another pre-build and pre-tested PC.

I'll let you know if my local shop finds anything wrong with it.

Thanks once again !

p.s. Some of the BSODs posted above which happened last night were when I had swopped my old graphics card in, so at least that proves my graphics card is not likely to be at fault.

I think that is a good decision. Be sure to let them know all that you have done and tried. They may help them narrow things down. Please let us know what they find. I hope they can solve it for you.
