Windows 7: Random BSODs with no appearent trigger?

21 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Random BSODs with no appearent trigger? (Dumps Included)

My old motherboard just died so I bought a new one, did a new fresh install of Windows 7, updated all the drivers and stuff and the BSODs persist.

The weird thing is that sometimes it does it immediatly after login, other times i can be on for a couple hours at a time and it will do it out of no where. And being this is a fresh windows install, I currently have almost no non microsoft stuff installed.

Thats why I cant quite figure out whats triggering it. Hoping some of you can help.

I'm running Fresh Windows 7 x64 Install

Brand new MSI 785-e63 MOBO
AMD Phenom II X4 940
ATI HD4870 1GB
onboard sound

Heres the memdumps and all the other info.

If you guys can help I'd greatly appreciate it.

Ohh and I tried running the System Health Report too as asked and it just gives me this


An error occured while attempting to generate the report.

The system cannot find the path specified.

More info. Have tried a couple clean boots as well, still getting BSOD.

However in safe mode I have yet to get a BSOD.

Update: Just finished downloading 7 windows updates.
Hit shut down to install them. Logged me out and while installing update 2 of 7, BOSD

Windows didnt create a dump for that one, I'm assuming since it wasnt even logged in?

Crashes point to hardware. Run some hardware checks.
  • If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

  • Monitor temperatures during the following tests.
    Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures.
  • Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

    warning   Warning
    Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

    For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working. If you do not have an anti-static workbench, desk, or pad, you can use your computer tower/case by finding a metal hold in it, such as a drive bay.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Also, make sure AMD Vision Engine Control Center is not overclocking your graphics card without your knowledge.
