Windows 7: BSOD irql not less or equal

When you guys use memtest86, do you set the mobo's BIOS to default settings first? I never considered what effect any custom settings I have could influence the outcome of the test.. 'til now.

A new bsod today... Reference_by_pointer. Never seen that one before.

STOP 0x00000018: REFERENCE_BY_POINTER

Usual causes: Device driver, kernel, hardware

Either system files are corrupt, old unstable device drivers or defective hardware are the possible causes

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Repair Install

The only old drivers are:
Code:

REFERENCE_BY_POINTER (18)
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000000, Object type of the object whose reference count is being lowered
Arg2: fffffa8009d91060, Object whose reference count is being lowered
Arg3: 0000000000000002, Reserved
Arg4: ff00000000000002, Reserved
    The reference count of an object is illegal for the current state of the object.
    Each time a driver uses a pointer to an object the driver calls a kernel routine
    to increment the reference count of the object. When the driver is done with the
    pointer the driver calls another kernel routine to decrement the reference count.
    Drivers must match calls to the increment and decrement routines. This bugcheck
    can occur because an object's reference count goes to zero while there are still
    open handles to the object, in which case the fourth parameter indicates the number
    of opened handles. It may also occur when the object’s reference count drops below zero
    whether or not there are open handles to the object, and in that case the fourth parameter
    contains the actual value of the pointer references count.

Thanks for the info.

This system is driving me nuts. Nothing makes sense. memtest86 results are inconclusive. And yet the system just keeps running with just an occasional bsod or lockup. I'm starting to think it's time to replace the mobo, processor, and ram... reinstall win7/64 HP on the SSD and start all over... again.

Edit: I just learned that I may be able to replace the mobo, cpu, and ram without necessarily having to reinstall Win7/64HP. Now the OS re-install is no big deal, but reinstalling and tweaking all my program settings *is* a big deal. That makes this option more palatable, other than for the cost.

I noticed that the computer had a couple of bsods in my absence today. I'll submit another report. Does this serve a purpose at this point? I'm thinking it's past time to dump this mobo, cpu, and ram and build a (basically) new system. Argh.

This was caused by nvlddmkm.sys, part of the Nvidia Driver
Either the driver is improperly installed or a combination of hardware defects might be causing the crash
I would suggest a reinstall of the Nvidia Driver

I'll uninstall and d/l a fresh copy of the Nvidia driver and install it.

The crashes are becoming more frequent. Do you think there's any point in me continuing to send in the bsod zip files for analysis?

All dumps seem to point to a GPU/RAM issue, it might also be failing hardware

It may be worth yanking those 2x1GB ram sticks out of the stand-by computer and running 4x1GB ram for a while and see if I have any more issues with bsods. If I can run for a week or so without a bsod/lockup, it may be worth replacing all the DDR2 ram with a matched set of 4x2GB ram. Otherwise, it sounds like it will be time for a new mobo, cpu, and DDR3 ram.

I have yet to replace the AData 2x2GB ram with the known good sticks of 2x1Gb ram from the standby computer.

Another bsod today, while the computer was sitting unused.

Looking at event viewer, I can't really interpret anything from what I see. The critical events seem to parallel bsods... best I can tell.
