Windows 7: BSOD 3b and d5

BSOD 3b and d5

Hello. I have been getting random BSODs for a few weeks now and I am running out of ideas.

At first I thought it was memory related, so I ran memtest on my 2 sticks of RAM, and found 1 faulty. I have since removed the bad stick and sent it off for RMA. The other stick passed memtest 8 times, so it has been left in.

I have also re-installed windows 7 twice since the first BSOD and I am still experiencing difficulties. I read the sticky so hopefully I have included enough info in my OP.

I have included my dump files in a rar- BIGDUMP.rar, my BSOD Dump & System File Collection app file as HALP.rar and my system health report.

Is Windows 7 . . . -x64 - the original installed OS on the system? Yes. - an OEM or full retail version? Full Retail. I built this PC and installed myself - What is the age of system (hardware)? 4 motnhs old - What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) I have reinstalled 2 times in the last 3 weeks.
OS: win 7 64 home premium CPU:AMD phenom II X4 965 Motherboard :ASUS M4A9GTD PRO Memory: 2x2GB Gskill Ripjaws Graphics Card(s): EVGA GTX 260

Oh I should also mention that I checked the primary HDD for errors using the windows utility and HDTUNE.

I ran the driver verifier utility as outlined here Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers and on reboot it never made it to the log in screen. I was unable to get to safe mode and had to use a system restore. This was on a fresh win 7 install so there were not many non-microsoft drivers on the list.

I have updated BIOS and chipset drivers now. Also ran prime95 for 2 hours with no errors or overheating. GPU stress test pass. I also reinstalled win7 to a known good HDD and so far only 1 BSOD, error code 7e, and the only info is unkown module.

I got some new RAM today and installed it. Memtest passed 5 times. I have not had any BSODs since i reinstalled to a new HDD, however, I cannot play video games for more than 5 minutes without the computer rebooting itself.No error messages or log files. This has happened every time I have attempted today.

Also, when starting my computer this evening, I got a BIOS message that overclock had failed and it asked me to enter setup and reconfigure. I have not overclocked and everything is set to auto in BIOS.


Since there has been no replies this will be my last bump. I am going to contact ASUS support and get an RMA# for my mainboard unless I can get any help or advice here. I dont know what else to do.
