Windows 7: BSOD/freezes. Dump File attached

I just ran another WMD test, I remember it showing an error within a minute, walked away from my computer for a couple minutes, and a "System Recovery Options" screen was there. I have never seen it do that? Any ideas on that? I didn't allow it to run, and just booted to Windows without any issues. I ran a sfc /verifyonly command, and found no issues. The memory test did NOT complete, as my event view does not show the test results.

No, I haven't forgotten that. I do know that Memtest is a much mores stressful to that RAM than is Windows memory test.
You can run Prime95 to test both the CPU and the memory. Follow the instructions in this tutorial: https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...t-prime95.html

Run 3 separate tests, one on each of the settings (Blend, Small FFTs, Large FFTs).

I would guess that you had a freeze or as crash while the memory test was running.

I decided to start taking DIMMS out, and running WMD tests. I only get the errors when I have all 4 of the matching DIMMS installed. It was only two weeks ago that I installed two more DIMMS (thinking that I might need more memory). Prior to adding more memory, I never has a BSOD, just the randon micro-freezes. For now, I am back to running on 2 DIMMS, having had uninstalled daemon tools and speedfan. Let me see where this takes me. I will post back. Again, thank you for your help! It is greatly appreciated!

You are welcome. The hardware Gurus (of which I am definitley not one) tell me that sometimes when adding more RAM some slight voltage increases are needed. If you would like me to get a hardware Guru to look at this thread, I will be happy to do so. I know that they will want you to download and run CPUZ and post information from there.

I recall reading that somewhere as well but I had forgotten about it until you mentioned it. For now, I am going to just operate with 2gb of RAM, as this has eliminated my BSOD's, however, grrrrr....I am still having the random micro-freezes. Seriously, this is just crazy. There is not one single thing that I can pin this down too. Have you any other ideas? I would love to get this sorted out. Again, thank you!

I'm baaaaack! Still, having the microfreezes (which I expected). Absolutely no BSOD's since removing the added RAM. Not a big deal, 2gb is really enough for 32bit XP. The microfreezes are just crazy! Seriously, there has GOT to be an explanation for this. If I am doing CPU intensive work, I notice that the microfreezes take longer to recover, but they ALWAYS do. Never an exception to this. No data integrity issues even having microfreezes (say a video encode). The mouse often freezes as well.

This sounds like a processor or memory hang. Would it be possible for you to post a snip of resource monitor tabs, as well as CPUz information?

Hi all, Thanks in advance for reading; any help is appreciated. Experienced several BSODs during the past few weeks. A few separate "explanations" for the crash shown on the blue screens may suggest a memory problem: "SPECIAL_POOL_DETECTED_MEMORY_CORRUPTION" "BAD_POOL_HEADER"...
