Windows 7: Various BSODs

27 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
Various BSODs


I'm getting different BSODs on various occasions, but mainly when the system is running CPU intensive tasks. Since most of them seemed to be memory related (i.e. IRQL_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL) or some with error code 0x000000x9, which i don't know to what it is related, i thought that maybe my RAM are corrupt. So i started testing them with Memtest 4, which is running in Windows...but when i thought i ruled out the faulty ones i tested them again one by one and it didn't throw any errors. So i testet them again with memtest86+ which didn't result in any errors either, even after more than 8 passes and running with XMP at 1600MHz.

So i thought that it's either the harddisk, which is a OCZ Vertex 2 SSD, or a driver related problem. After updating all drivers, BIOS update, SSD firmware update and testing with the verifier i could identify acpi.sys as the one causing errors which, as far as i know, can be triggered by many different causes.

Now i re-installed windows and the newest drivers, because i thought it could be the configuration of the SSD, but now i get BSODs again, only with mostly different errors than before. Some of the ones i had were related to hidclass.sys but most of them just hardware errors with error code 0x000000124.

Most of the minidumps I included in the post are caused when stressing the machine with prime95.
Cooling is not the problem...the CPU doesn't rise over 50c, even during hours over full stress.

My configuration:

Windows 7 Professional x64
CPU: i7-970 6-core @ 3,2GHz
Mainboard: MSI x58a-gd65
HDD: OCZ Vertex 2 120gb
RAM: 12GB (6x2GB) Corsair XMS3 Dominator @ 1600 Mhz
PSU: Corsair 650W

Please help me, I'm really running out of ideas.
