Windows 7: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT Unpredictable BSoD's.

20 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

So for the past 6 months now i've been having fairly unpredictable spouts of BSoD's, where ill get say 5-6 in a row and then not have any for weeks, and havnt been able to troubleshoot it myself, was hoping someone would be able to look into the dump files and find what is causing this problem for me, thankyou.

All i can see from BlueScreenView is that ntoskrnl.exe is common in every single crash that is happening along with generally one or two windows associated drivers.

System Specs :

CPU - Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz
MOBO - ASUSTeK Computer INC. Maximus IV Extreme
BIOS Date: 02/05/10 19:13:52 Ver: 08.00.10
RAM - Corsair Dominator 8GB RAM CMT4GX3M2A2000C8
HDD + SSD - (1) Hitachi HDS723020BLA642 (2) Hitachi HDS723020BLA642 (3) Volume0 (Corsair Force 60GB x2 in Raid0)
GPU's - (1) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 (2) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 SLI
OS - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
PSU - 850w Corsair AX850

OS is OEM and has not be reinstalled since i recieved this system in april/june of this year.

If the above steps do not resolve your issue, and since most of your problems could be related to memory problems, run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial.

If your memory checks out, but you continue to have issues, run Driver Verifier as follows:
To run Driver verifier, do the following:
1. Backup your system and user files
2. Create a system restore point
3. If you do not have a Windows 7 DVD, Create a system repair disc
4. Run Driver Verifier

If Windows cannot start in normal mode with driver verifier running, start in safe mode. If it cannot start in safe mode or normal mode, restore the system restore point using System Restore OPTION TWO.

Thanks to zigzag3143 for contributing to the above steps.

Let Driver Verifier run for a while and collect a few Blue Screen minidmp files for us to check. These will point toward any drivers/software that do not run well with Windows 7.
