Windows 7: BSOD on start up

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
 
 

Hi jcrandall. Dean asked me to take a look at your problem. I noticed that when you run the JC Griff tool, the files generated are not complete. There is no msinfo file and no system information. I am not sure what is causing this. I have been back through all of your uploads and it is the same in each one.

I looked at your four latest dumps. They show three different error codes and all four indicate memory corruption. None of them are Driver Verifier enabled dumps. Two of them blame Windows system drivers, which are highly unlikely to be the real causes; one blames your NTFS file system; and one blames atikmpag.sys, your video driver. Usually this pattern indicates a hardware or hardware related conflict.

I know that you are running MSE and Windows Firewall. Are you running any third party security programs such as a banking security program, a wi-fi hotspot security program, a gaming security program, etc?

1. I suggest that you test your RAM with Memtest 86 carefully following the instructions in this tutorial: RAM - Test with Memtest86+. Let Memtest run for at least seven passes. Errors if any will show on your screen in red. If you see any errors, you can stop the test. Post back with your results.

2. If you get no errors with Memtest, please enable Driver Verifier exactly following the instructions in this tutorial: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable. Let Verifier run for 36 hours and use your computer normally while it is running. Verifier will trigger a BSOD if it finds a faulty driver. Upload any and all Verifier enabled dumps. Hopefully, they will point out any faulty drivers.

3. Because one of the dumps blames NTFS.sys, your file system, I recommend that you run Check Disk -
Quote:
Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as adminstrator) Command Prompt. Please do this for each hard drive on your system.
When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter. Then reboot and let the test run. It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors. See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.

Elevated Command Prompt:
Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"

CHKDSK LogFile:
Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application log file entry.
Double click on the Source column header.
Scroll down the list until you find the Chkdsk entry (wininit for Windows 7) (winlogon for XP).

Copy/paste the results into your next post

Follow these three suggestions and we will go from there depending on the results you get. You will have to troubleshoot by the process of elimination.

SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000007e)
This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have

Hi Carl,
The first thing that I did was run memtest. after the about an hour it had 9 errors, but the screen looked corrupted. The "S's' looked like "x's" and was difficult to read. So I rebooted and started memtest over. It ran for over 8 passes on two different occasions with no errors. I ran chkdsk on all the hard drives and they all looked clean, no corrupted files. I ran sfc scannow it it said that windows resource protection found corrupt files but was not able to fix some of them. I ran driver verifier for well over 36 hours, I am still running it. It has blue screened several times. I shut down this morning and restarted this afternoon. It failed to load windows on two attempts. Once loaded it blue screened twice, but it looked as if the dump file failed to complete the download. I have attached the most recent dump file.

thanks again for all the help!!!!

Hi Carl,
Did you have a chance to take a look at the dump file? I also did a scan with Malwarebytes on all the drives. It did find a rogue regtidy file on my D drive.

after another cold start, I had a couple of BSOD's and one lockup with the screen all a matrix of colors. Now it it is pretty stable. Attached is teh latest dump file. So if someone can take a look I would be greatly appreciated.

Can someone can take a look at the dump files ? I think that having almost all of the BSOD's right after a cold restart is significant. Any suggestions on testing the hardware?? I could really use the help in solving this problem.

I may have solved my problem. After performing all the checks that Dean and Carl requested and not finding anything. I downloaded a utility to perform a check on my hard drives and that verfied that my hard drives were not the problem.I also ran SFC Scannow for 3 passes. NOW we have ruled out bad memory , bad hard drives, and any driver issues. What I thought was significant was most of my problems would ocurred during a cold boot. SO i decided to look at the PSU. I had a 500 W PSU and based on a watt calculator from Newegg I should be using a 601 W PSU. So I purchased a 650 W PSU and I have now performed several cold boots and have not had a problem loading windows or BSODs. I will repost later either way, but so far this is the best my computer has performed, hopefully the PSU was the culprit.
