Windows 7: Continually freezing and some BSoDs

03 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Continually freezing and some BSoDs


I recently upgraded a number of things in my pc (mobo, CPU, and ram specifically). After everything got running I began to randomly freeze up. It can happen at any point in time. I'll walk away and it could happen or I will be playing videogames and it will suddenly happen. I've have a few blue screens mixed in and I'll attach the minidump files for that.

I had the system overclocked, nothing too serious though, just what the auto-tuning software put it at. Thinking that was the issue I backed off the overclocking entirely but the problem persists still.

I originally upgraded to a corsair 3x2gb kit. I memtested them and got no errors but eventually returned them to get a g.skill 4x4gb kit. The problem is still present although I haven't run memtest as long as I would've liked on the g.skill kit. My power supply is a corsair 750W which I think it enough. I've also cleaned this thing a few dozen times and my cpu cooler is a Noctua NH-D14 so my max load temps only get up to 50 oC.

Any help would be intensely appreciated. Thank you so much.

This is I will do. But in the meantime what other problems could cause this constant freezing with a few blue screens, aside from RAM. All the blue screens in my minidump files are from before I got my new ram. I haven't had a blue screen but still have had constant freezing.

In the even viewer that is just the windows event viewer, it gave this:

Now I really am lost with it but it has all my other recorded errors when this happened. Is this just saying that it recovered from a crash and was unexpected?

I am currently running Memtest86+ 4.10 on my RAM and it has almost completed its fourth pass with boslutely no errors whatsoever. I've let it run all night thus far. What about the DRIVER_IRQL error in the blues screens I was getting? What do they signify?

I really don't think its my RAM. Anyone else have suggestions?
