Windows 7: FREQUENT RANDOM BSoDs

Thanks for the help guys, realy appreciated!

Will look into the current BIOS version, I had the motherboard replaced (thinking i had narrowed it down to that being the only thing it could be) and this has the version it was shipped witch may actually be v2304, I have the 125w revision of the 965 witch sets itself to 1.4v on auto, have tweaked this up to 1.45 to no avail, how high can i push this up before risking permanant damage?

I have been tweaking settings for CPU voltage, RAM voltage and timing etc and it seems to have lessened them (but they are random so who knows if it helped)

Using CPU-Z i can see the auto setting for ram is T1, will try switching to T2

Yes driver verifier is enabled on advice but will disable it and update those drivers that need attention, although i have probably tried on a different install of windows (have formatted sevral times), i used to have a lot more problems like RAR fiels not extracting or apps not installing and failing and general weird things happening but it just seems to be the BSoDs being my only problem now

If ANYONE has ANY other ideas or things i could try i am all ears, i know someone else with a similar system so i might swap RAM and CPUs and possible a HDD with him and see what the results are

EDIT: i see there is another new bios i am yet to try(v3303) , so i have downloaded that and will try it at some stage

Keep us updated. Driver Verifier is a useful tool when it is needed. When it is only pointing to Windows system drivers and hardware, it is not useful.

Ok,

I Updated the drivers that were pointed out (still got BSoDs)
I then set the timing to T2 for RAM in the bios, have manually set ram voltage (tried 1.5v and 1.52v) , timing (8-8-8-24) cpu-z says timing is 8-8-8-24-33 i think it was 33, should i manually set this parameter?. have set CPU voltage (1.45v) , multiplier (200mhz) and clock speed (x18) Still got BSoDs

I will now install the new BIOS and reinstall windows installing only diever disks supplied with the motherboard. if this doesnt work i will have to start swapping parts with friends

Anyone else got any ideas??? i ran out a long time ago... this is truly bizzare, i have never encountered such a problem, the only thing i can think of it being now is just plain incompatibility

Incompatibility is a good possibility. I believe you definitely have a hardware problem. When a clean install does not solve the problem, that leaves hardware.

Have been running stable and faster for over a week now

Swapped HDD SATA cables and i am now running hard drives off 1 auxilary power cable each from the PSU

Ah, very good. Thank you for the update. That is the news we like to hear. It looks like power or a cable was the problem.

Please upload the dumps and we will take a look. It does sound like it still might be a hardware problem.

Problem still persists but not as bad witch makes me think i may be headed in the right direction... but it is entirely rendom so who knows

I can tell when the computer is unstable right from boot, it boots slow and when it gets into windows does strange things and fails to load some apps, aero stops working sometimes, i get random errors or BSoDs. but other times it boots fast and runs well, the problem seems to hapen mostly from a cold boot seems to happen not as often when overclocking the cpu multiplier.

Anyone got any ideas?, im thinking maybe a power issue not caused by the PSU as i have swapped this and the problem remains

Hi folks. I've got a 6-month old OEM, original install of Win7 X64. Until a couple of weeks ago it was stable: no BSODs. Then there was one. Now I'm lucky if I can get through a session without one. They seem to be of random types, according to windbg, though there have been a number of ones...
