Windows 7: BSODS everywhere

BSODS everywhere

I am requesting the BSOD answering gods to help me with this one. I have posted before and have reoccuring BSODS every once in a while, mostly during days where there is a Windows update.

My previous thread is https://www.sevenforums.com/showthread.php?t=181373&goto=newpost

A little background information. I have built computers for over 5 years and never have I encountered so many driver problems causing bsods. I originally built this system about a year ago. BSODS have been happening on and off but never to this severity. 6 BSODS in a row just now with the following blue screen messages.
System Service Exception.
WDFLDR.sys

I have attached a zip file for your use. Thanks for your time.

A majority of the recent crashes were related to memory management. The rest scattered over 9 other causes. Readyboost features prominently so I would not use it.

To narrow the focus please do the following.

Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.


1-Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+



2-Driver verifier

Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable


I would also run the update readiness tool and update to SP-1


Ensure you install the correct 64 or 32bit option for your system)

Download the System Update Readiness Tool (64bit)
Download the System Update Readiness Tool (32bit)

Thanks again zigzag. I have ran memtest for 7 passes like last time but this time I picked up some errors. I have switched slots and ran it again and found none. It seems the memory on the mobo slots have flawed since last time?? Whatever the reason, I swapped slots, ran the memtest, came back clean. I then stressed all the drivers other than ones by microsoft and have been running fine so far. I will adhere to your recommendation and leave it on for a day or two. Thanks again and I hope this is the last of my troubles.
