Windows 7: Intermittent Restarting BSOD

Hi there!

I'm sorry to hear that BSODs still occur. No worry, I will try my best and if my advise can't help you, then still other amazing experts that can give you different pathway to go.
I saw these driver are out of date and need to be updated:
Code:
nvraid   nvraid.sys   Wed May 20 01:39:40 2009 (4A13A5AC)
That belong to nVidia nForce RAID Driver and needed to be update now
Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

Code:
nvstor   nvstor.sys   Wed May 20 01:45:37 2009 (4A13A711)
That belong to nVidia Storage Drivers
Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

I would like you to try the memtestx86 again if you can, and please leave it run as many pass as you can since sometime 6 passes does not bring many result.

Also, you have mentioned that you got BSODs while trying to install graphic card driver, so might be we should get into graphic card stress test
Try this free video stress test: FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
Quote:
FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
- Click "Quit" to exit
Do those first and let us know the result

Regard,

Tuan

Just a quick update. I decided to find out an old PCI-E graphics card I had, so I could put that in so it's not using the onboard graphics. I've uninstalled the old Nvidia Graphics drivers and installed the new ones for the card (It's an Nividia based card). It's just an experiment really.

Ran it for half an hour after installing the card/drivers and it hasn't BSOD'd yet, but I have to go out shortly so I will leave it switched off for a good 5 hours and try again.

Any information about the previously BSOD dumps I posted would be welcomed.

Thanks again.

-EDIT-

Just noticed your reply (was on page 2 lol). I went about trying to re-install all drivers which included the Nvidia Chipset drivers before what I did above so I think I probably covered what you mentioned.
If the above fails I will post another log and start on the memtest etc again.

Thanks again for your help ttran :)

Hello ttran.

Just a quick update: I've come home tonight and switched it on and it's been ok up to now. I've tried doing a few things like checking emails, browsing the web, a defrag, switching users and no BSOD yet. *touches wood*

I won't count my chickens until tomorrow morning though, doesn't seem to like mornings

I will keep you up to date.

Thanks again.

Update Number 2: I tried starting the computer this morning and it started fine with no BSOD's. I tried doing the usual things like checking email, browsing the web etc etc.

If putting in an video card rather than using the onboard graphics solves the issue, where do you think the problem lies - hardware or drivers?

I will test again when I get home from work.

Thanks again.

Well I don't believe it, it BSOD'd on me when I got home from work this afternoon - I've attached the dumps.

Can someone take a look at the dumps?

Thanks a lot.

Well I think everyone has given up on me, but i'll keep you updated.

I remembered reading somewhere once that votage on the RAM (under or over powered) can cause BSODs, so I thought I would take a look in the manual see if i could see anything about votages. I found a list of votages or some RAM, and I found one similar to the OCZ 1066 DDR3 i've got in there, which sais 1.65v. So i had a look in the bios and it was set to auto, so I decided to manually set it at 1.65v. So far it hasn't BSOD on me. I'm running Prime95 to put load on the computer atm, and i've tried for the last day switching it off and on. I don't want to jinx it, but this could be the solution? I will keep trying and reporting back.
