Windows 7: BCCODEs; 1e, 1b, 1c, 24 etc

Thanks for that mate, it's been a nightmare trying to get some pictures up here to show you guys whats actually happening. That 4th one down... Shouldn't the HDD be in the first slot? Is that a problem at all? I've tried different settings and stuff but to no avail. I'm not sure if I have one of those jumper cap things so I'll just short it like it says and see what happens I guess. Not sure why updating to SP1 and all that stuff has broken of so badly though :-(

That's just what port its plugged into on the motherboard. Try changing where it's plugged in that should change it in the BIOS

Does the system still boot? If so, don't worry about the BIOS just yet - it's working well enough to let you get into Windows (and that's what it's supposed to do).

Next, because of all the changes to the system, please run and upload another copy of the files that you generated earlier: https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

Finally, because of the randomness of the errors - I'd like to suggest that you run Driver Verifier according to the directions below. I don't expect it to reveal anything, but would like use it to rule out 3rd party drivers as a cause.
Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like. From my limited experimentation it makes the BSOD's come faster.
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

If that doesn't work, post back and we'll have to see about fixing the registry entry off-line:
Code:
Delete these registry keys (works in XP, Vista, Win7):
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDrivers
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDriverLevel

Sorry for any errors in my previous post - I have some eye problems that makes reading difficult.
I understand that you can't boot - how far does the boot go? Does it show any Windows stuff (like the splash screen)?

Have you tried:
- resetting the BIOS to FAIL-SAFE defaults (see picture 3 in post #30)? What happens then?
- removing all non-essential components? What happens then? Here's a link to a suggested sequence: Hardware Troubleshooting Via System Stripdown

Hi there, tried all of what you posted. I get as far as the update DMI screen again which is black. It said for one boot up 'update success' but isn't saying that any more, and there doesn't seem to be a HDD listed (and it isn't picking one up in the BIOS). There's nothing else non-essential now, not even USB stuff, so it must be because it's not picking up the HDD

Disconnect the hard drive (unplug both cables from the mobo - that'll remove the cables and hard drive from the "equation") and see if you can boot from a bootable CD (such as MemTest here: Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link))

Occasionally at work we'll get similar problems - and removing the hard drive will usually work (if it's the hard drive that's to blame). It seems that the hard drive can get so messed up that it interferes with the BIOS doing it's job.

Thanks, I'll Give that a go. The only problem is I don't have a disc drive, but my partner has a removable one so I'll try that when I can ge hold of the drive. Thanks again for all of your help! I hope I can fix the HDD if it is that.. the damn thing is only about 2-3 months old! :-(

That stinks - hopefully you'll get the data off of it, and a good chkdsk /r against it from another machine probably wouldn't hurt either.
