Windows 7: Constant BSOD

17 Nov 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

Good job; you got them all. Thanks. Your hard disk looks fine and is probably not the problem.

I went back through a couple of your dumps. One of them blamed ntkrnlmp.exe, which is a Windows system core driver and very unlikely to be the real cause. However, it also blamed avguard.exe, which is an Avira file. Avira is known to cause BSOD's on some Win 7 systems and it was definitely involved in this crash. I suggest that you uninstall Avira and download and install Microsoft Security Essentials in it place. See if this helps your system.

After you have uninstalled Avira, enable Driver Verifier again. Remember, it will cause a BSOD if it finds a faulty driver. If Driver Verifier does not find a faulty dirver or if it blames Windows system drivers, I suggest you test your RAM with Memtest from a cold boot after your computer has been off for a while. Let it run for at least seven passes which will take 6-8 hours. After you test your RAM, try removing all but one stick and see if you get BSOD's.

Because most of your BSOD's are occurring shortly after bootup, it could be a PSU problem. Check all of your cables and wires and make sure they are secure. Do you have another known good power supply you could try in your system?

Alrighty thanks, I'll try that soon with Avira, aswell as the memory test.

And about the PSU, I only have one. But, I think it could be the problem too.
I have a XFX GTS 250, you think that's sucking a bit too much out of a 550w PSU? Because that's what I got installed now.

Right, I uninstalled Avira and replaced it with Microsoft security Essentials.
System has been running fine over the last couple of days, but has BSOD's at random occasions (which I can't afford to have).

As you said, I ran driver verifier after I uninstalled Avira and I received a 0x0000000A BSOD.
I made an updated .zip including the last .dmp and put it in my attachment.

Which driver is failing mind me asking? :)
In the meantime i'll run memtest.

I can't really say because I do not know what all is on your system and the total power demands. But there are wattage calculators online where you can calculate what PSU you need. Keep in mind that PSU output decreases as the power supply gets older.

Your latest dump does not appear to be a Driver Verifier enabled dump. It does not point out any driver; rather it blames pool corruption (memory corruption).

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.
