Windows 7: Help with BSOD Fix please

Help with BSOD Fix please

I cannot figure out this bsod issue, I have been trying forever I cannot figure it out and it is the most frustrating thing on the planet. I have replaced the HDD's at one point, the motherboard, the ram, the psu, the GPU, and the network card, So at one point I probably had more then one problem, The current BSOD's are only the ones since my most recent replacement which is my graphics card, I switched to a 6950 from a gtx 460 and these are the bsod's since then, before that It was bsoding on the gtx 460 most of the time. I re installed windows right when I got the card. I have a few other threads on different forums and so far, I have tried uninstalling and using drive sweeper and then re-installing different versions of the graphics driver, I have adjusted the voltages on my ram to meet specs, and rolling back the driver, etc. If you can help me fix it 50$ pay pal coming your way, because as I said I have replaced so many parts in this computer Its cheaper for me to just figure out what is wrong.

Hello Zocheyado, welcome to SF! Sorry we took some time, very busy here at C&D!

You have a couple of possible problems though I have not had the time to go through all your dumps, just too many of them

First go to Devices and check these, make sure they either work correctly with new drivers or de-install:
HTML Code:
Android Phone    USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0CAD&MI_01\6&1ACC5438&0&0001    The drivers for this device are not installed.
Unibrain 1394 PC    UB1394\UNIBRAIN&1394_PC\0013EA47001C6F65    The drivers for this device are not installed.
You have MANY instances of mscorsvw.exe failing. That is a process that should normally finish quickly, see here for more info: What is mscorsvw.exe and why is it eating up my CPU? What is this new CLR Optimization Service? - David Notario's WebLog - Site Home - MSDN Blogs
Or here for MS info: Mscorsvw.exe using 50 % of my CPU - Windows 7 Home SP1 - 64 bit - Microsoft Answers

But, for now, I think your biggest problem is mixed up Graphics drivers.
Your latest dump has a problem with your ATI drivers. Please get the latest for your card:

Well see I had another thread going on in a different forum in which everyone thought It was the graphics driver, I have always always had the most up to date drivers directly from AMD, through out this process I have uninstalled and reinstalled a dozen times in a dozen ways with different versions, So I really do not think it is the graphics driver. And not sure if I said it above but before I had the AMD card I have a nvidia Card and the same thing was happening.

Well, there is no such thing as being a 100% sure... But I am sure that your graphics driver crashed. That is for sure. The question is.... Why. Possible reasons in order of likeliness:
1 the driver itself, in relation to the rest of the files of the graphicscard. Problem in your case could be your many retries.... A known problem is that these drivers are not removed correctly by their normal deinstall software. Some part rmains and is not replaced by the new. Could well be the case here. That why we have additional tools to remove stuff and others to clean registry.
2. Graphics card hardware is malfunctioning or gets too hot
3. RAM malfunctions
4. Mobo graphics card slot / bios settings.
5. IRQ settings

But if you are sure this is not it... I'll be happy to help you through tests to see whats up...

Thanks for the big reply! well as for the graphics driver, I did not just use the default un installer, I used drive sweeper and since then I have reinstalled windows entirely as I have a few times before in an attempt to fix it and it Still crashes with brand new drivers on a brand new install So I doubt it is drivers, I usually have a gpu temp gadget so I don't think that is the issue, especially since most of the crashes occur during starcraft 2, even though crysis 2 makes my gpu alot hotter and it crashes alot less. As for ram, I have ran memtest86+ for a few hours on my new ram, I had other ram that I had for about a year that I thought must be the problem and replaced only to find that nothing changed and got another blue screen. So im going to hesitantly remove the top 3 as possible issues, now Is there any way to test my graphics card slot? is there a way to clean it if it has dirty connections or something? also you said /bios settings, is there a way I can download a profile of my bios so you guys can check it out? I recently RMA'ed my mother board guessing that something was wrong, and they told me that my bios settings were incorrect and they at that point updated my bios to the current version and set it to the default so Im assuming that is correct, and any more info on IRQ settings / what you ment by that? Again im not opposed to buying new hardware. just cant tell what is wrong. Thanks!

Also I forgot to mention this before but! 2 times now since I have resintalled it has blue screened, but 2 other times it has just crashed...so it would freeze and the sound would repeate just like when it blue screens but no minidump is made to examine =/ here is the system run profile thing since resintall and all that.

Ok, I'll have a look. Meanwhile, could you update us on progress on the other issues I identified?

Just as an example the mscorsvw one.. but any of those issues could cause your problems....

For future ref I'll copy some of the dump analysis here:

HTML Code:
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: 00000000018569a0, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000001, bitfield :
    bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
Arg4: fffff80002aea809, address which referenced memory

Debugging Details:
------------------


WRITE_ADDRESS:  00000000018569a0 

CURRENT_IRQL:  2

FAULTING_IP:

In this dump it is again another type of code and driver. It is starting to look like there is something wrong at a deeper level. Also, in this dump, it had a problem again with basic W7 drivers, this time part of the security system...

Om the other hand, the dump before that from 7th of August, again points to graphics drivers:

HTML Code:
Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\atikmdag.sys, Win32 error 0n2

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

Probably caused by : atikmdag.sys ( atikmdag+4d761 )

Assuming all went well in your previous steps and you did really delete old drivers and install correct new ones.. That you even checked the exact versions of these drivers that are loaded in your system. Also that all other points advised above have been done/fixed.

Again ONLY if all the above has been tried and tested... then I'd start looking at HW.. This kind of diversity of problems can, in your case of a new build, be caused by something as simple (but difficult to research) as PSU / powersetting problem.

We recently had a thread here where there were all sorts of crash codes, memtest worked fine for 7 passes etc all sort of tests... fine... but still crashes. UNtil someone thought to push up the voltage of a ram module a bit. That fixed it.

Anyway, not saying that specific example it the case here but.. IF you build your own, as you have apparently done, you need to have researched and tried out all the detail of voltages / amps on a rail etc for your specific system....

PS.... you really need to be complete in following earlier steps before looking into hardware.
Your USB problem still remains. It is as good a reason for this as any other:

Quote:
Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller PCI\VEN_1033&DEV_0194&SUBSYS_50071458&REV_03\4&A1CFEE5&0&0048 The drivers for this device are not installed.
On the 9th part of the problem could have been a memory leakage in CamtasiaStudio, according to logs. That has not caused a dump though...
