Windows 7: contast BSODs

Better Know... What are the real chipsets of your board (NVIDIA, INTEL, SIS, VIA)
Even I have a MSI Motherboard, I don't go to their site, instead I go to Nvidia Site (because I have a Nvidia Chipset 790i) then I do download their latest drivers.
Sometimes Motherboard and other pc peripherals manufacturer doesn't have the latest drivers

Hey, I'm sorry I didn't post a link to the drivers, I didn't want to confuse anyone. There are different chipsets and different motherboards, and I didn't want to break anyones stuff by not being sure. I also didn't see that there was a beta version, or drivers that new. The one i'm using now is from 2006, but I'm going to upgrade to that one and see what happens... I've gotten 7 blue screens today so far :-(.

The slowdown is fixed, the BSODs are not. We'll see how this new driver fares me.

I was having similar problems when I made the switch to Windows 7 from Vista a few months back. For some reason Windows 7 was much less stable than Vista for me also. It was especially unstable when trying to move files accross the network.

I tried some voltage changes in bios and the one change that had a positive effect was bumping up the northbridge voltage a bit. Made all the difference for me. That's all I can think of for now, hope you get this figured out soon.

Interesting. I would never ever EVER think to bump the NB voltage when it worked great in Vista before, but adding a bit of a stability boost to that area might just do the trick. Thanks for the tip! I see you're using an nVidia chipset though, I have an Intel G45, so it might be different causes. PS: 4.32 Ghz? Really? I can't keep mine stable over 3.0, and its not because of heat! (of course, i have a q9400, not a 9650).

I'm going to try the 7264 version of the kernel, and see if that helps anything. 7100 worked fine for me, 7201 and 7229 haven't been so lucky. I get a lot of page_fault_in_nonpaged_area, and system_service_exception errors, and I think that's the kernel crapping out, not a driver. We'll see.

I'd just like to mention that, of course, I am not currently overclocking my chip. I just wanted to make that clear before i get a ::facepalm:: from someone telling me that's the problem :-)

Shot in the dark, but try a check disk. Random BSODs can be a result of bad sectors. I know i just suggested this on another thread, but it is something that is overlooked. Slow HD access times my be hinting at a failing drive. I had a drive that got slower and slower until it died. I think it was trying to read the corrupted data over and over which resulted in a slow read time.

If the check disk comes back with unrecoverable data, its bad, and plan to move any critical data off the drive/machine.


Other BSODs I have seen were RAM OC'd too high. Try resetting BIOS to defaults. I could OC my rig higher in Vista that Windows 7 for some reason.

I ran chkdsk (with blue screens happening as often as they have, I've run a few actually), and nothing crazy came up. A few bad pointers or whatever, but didn't really do any good for the bsods. The speed issue ended up getting fixed with updated ACPI drivers, thanks to usamsa.

I agree though! chkdsk IS overlooked, and every major operating system except Windows makes you run a low-level disk scan after X number of kernel crashes. I wish MS would put that into 7.

I'm not overclocking anything at all right now, my RAM is running at its standard 800mhz. I haven't even bothered to OC my stuff since I installed 7, because it just runs so damn fast already! The only time I've tweaked it up to 3.0 Ghz or so is when I'm encoding a lot of video. That extra 10% or so makes a 45 minute job get done in 40 ;-)

Well, here's an update.

Within a half hour of booting the new 7264, got another blue screen.

I upped my voltages one notch on my board, as chev65 suggested, and we'll see if I have any luck with that.

Another thing I've noticed is my mouse "freezes" for a bit during bootup. It'll be working fine, then will be completely non-responsive for about a second or two halfway through bootup. I assumed it's just loading some drivers, but maybe someone has seen that happen as a symptom of a problem before.

Hopefully my constant bumping of my own thread will end up leading to help someone else with this crap I've been going through :-)
