Windows 7: Help!!!

23 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Brief description:
Win 7 64 bit Bluescreening randomly playing games and occasionally watching movies... This started a few weeks ago I got a Virus removed it but started getting Blue Screens playing Force Unleashed, Black-ops, BF Bad Company 2 so on...Formatted and re-installed Windows, only have BC2 and COD Black Ops installed, all Drivers are on fresh install from various websites.... Still Bluescreening, ram Memtest86 found one stick of Bad Ram....Took it out still getting occasional BSOD!!!

AMD Phenom 965 B.E. O'cd to 3.8 @4.125v[less then a year old]
3Gigs [was 4] of Corssair Twin OCX PC6400 CMs2 DDR2[4-4-4-12 @2.1v according to corsair instructions, been fine for two years now]
W.D. Raptor 150gig Sata 2 [1 yr old]
Samsung DVD burner/rom 2yrs old
Asus Crosshair II formula 2yrs old
ATI Radeon HD 5830 PCI express 1gigddr3 [had less then 6 months]
Ante Tru Quatro 1,000 watt PSU [a bit overkill but will need it to go crossfire
I also have an older W.D. Raptor that is used for storage, it's Sata1 and won't take an OS anymore but works fine for storage...

Files: I am uploading all the .dmp files since I reinstalled...1st two are with bad ram in machine, rest are w/o that bad stick. Also I installed Windows with that Bad Memory in the PC, could this have effected the install, should I re-format and re-install Windows since I am at bare minimum? I haven't installed Virus or spyware protection yet because I need to resolve this BS issue before I start wasting my time re-installing all my other games and software...

Thanks in advance, hope we can figure something out soon cause this is putting a damper on my gaming time!!!

Windows 10 Pro x64, Arch Linux

found one stick of Bad Ram
I'll suggest replacing it

Your RAM is blamed again
Run the SFC tool SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

*                                                                             *
*                        Bugcheck Analysis                                    *
*                                                                             *

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

BugCheck A, {fffffffff, 2, 0, fffff80002aecb8b}

Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiInsertNode+9b )

So I still have Memory Issues? Should I pull the twin for the bad stick out? Kind of weird, I tested each stick of RAM Individually with MEMtest86 and the three left in there all passed...not doubting you just find it curious....I

Someone suggested I remove the other stick that was matched to the Bad one I found and try it out. Said since they were "Matched Pairs" they were designed to work together and might malfunction with out the other one..does this sound right to you? I did run MEMTest86 again, this time with all three sticks in it...passed 9 passes w/o fail..but I have removed the other so down to 2 gigs...will check back and report any results [fingers crossed]

SFC Scan Now came back Clean no corrupt files found. Played Bo-ops all day after removing that matched stick of ram to the one that failed MEMTest86 w/o a bluescreen.

Windows update came up installed Nvidia Network Controller for my NIC, Windows defender update and Important update kb2447568. Rebooted loaded Black-ops and got a new BSOD after 1 round I havent seen before anyways if it comes back to Memory again then I know that I need to replace all four sticks not just the Matched Pair that had one fail the test...If that doesn't fix it then Motherboard?[Let's Hope not.

I am going to reset Bios to default also to undo the Overclock's to CPU memory and Northbridge see if that helps..anyways heres the latest dmp file thanks again....
