BSODs, cause is a mystery!

BSODs, could be driver problems? dmp attached.
Hi all,

First time poster, reading the rules as I post so hopefully will not commit any offences on my first time.

My problem is with a new PC I built using some old parts and some new parts I bought from ebuyer.com
I am getting recurring blue screens, mainly when playing games.

These errors include MEMORY_MANAGEMENT , DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

Please note I have updated all my drivers, as well as done two fresh installs of windows and have also removed drivers, installed old driver and even relied on windows drivers to varying effects however none have sold the problem.

I have also run MEMTEST86+ 4 hours wall time 9 passes 0 errors.

I have also run HDD diagnostics, with no errors.

I have all Windows updates and SP1 installed.

Please find .dmp files below.

Help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

George

Hi GRWorrall,

Welcome! I'm pretty new to this forum also... have experience that it greatly helps if you follow the BSOD posting instructions published via the link at the top op this thread. Uploading only dmp files is usually not sufficient. The experts need things like Perfmon reports etc...

Cheers,
Mark

Hi thanks for your reply Mark!
How do I post Perfmon reports? I have Perfmon up but I can't seem to find a 'test' button etc. Thanks in advance!

Hello GRWorral,

That's explained in this extract of the BSOD posting instructions:

3. Run a System Health Report -
START | type perfmon /report - a viewer will appear | Click on "File" and "Save As" an HTML file (default file extension)

Along with a lot of other stuff, you need to pack the resulting HTML file in a compressed zip file and attach that to your post. Again, read and follow the full BSOD posting instructions of which a link is provided at the very top of this thread.

If I can I'll be happy to help explain if some of that is not clear.

Here is the perfmon report.

The reason it says not enough memory is because I was running a lot of stuff at once.

Thanks in advance

Could you please run the report again while doing nothing else (i.e. on an idle machine)?
Though theoretically sufficient, 2Gb is not much for 7 64bits...
