Windows 7: BSOD and freezing during gaming/browsing.

24 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 x64
BSOD and freezing during gaming/browsing.

Windows 7 x64 Professional
Originally installed OS
Full Retail

Bought from roommate and replaced his hard drive with a brand new hard drive (2 weeks).

He never had any issues with freezing or BSOD. We've reseated all hardware, completely removed dust, temperatures are consistently between 30 and 40 degrees Celsius, CHKDSK showed 0 bad sectors, Memtest had 0 errors, several antivirus/malware programs have come up 100% clean.

Had no issues the first week with this computer. Components are all of various ages (under 1.5 years), power source is 1250W CoolerMaster, video card is ~7 months old, memory is also ~7 months old, motherboard and processor are ~1.5 years old.

Dump files and report are included. Any help is greatly appreciated. I tried to follow the posting guidelines, but please let me know if I missed anything or should include anything else! We've been working on this issue for three days straight, and I'm at my wits' end.

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate: x64 (SP1)

Hello Ransom and welcome to Sevenforums.

BSOD Report

Graphic Driver

Your Nvidia Graphic Driver is roughly showing errors. We want to reinstall the Nvidia Drivers, without having left-over files after the installation. This tutorial shows how-

i) Make your way to Nvidia Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
ii) Uninstall the one you currently have and all its extensions
iii) Download Driver Sweeper
iv) Get to safe mode (without network) and search for Driver Sweeper in your
v) Select all the Nvidia components and analyse them
vi) Clean them, head into Windows without internet and download the driver.

This means a trap occurred in kernel mode, and it's a trap of a kind
that the kernel isn't allowed to have/catch (bound trap) or that
is always instant death (double fault).  The first number in the
bugcheck params is the number of the trap (8 = double fault, etc)
Consult an Intel x86 family manual to learn more about what these
traps are. Here is a *portion* of those codes:
If kv shows a taskGate
        use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv.
Else if kv shows a trapframe
        use .trap on that value
        .trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken
        (on x86, this will be the ebp that goes with the procedure KiTrap)
kb will then show the corrected stack.
Arg1: 0000000000000008, EXCEPTION_DOUBLE_FAULT
Arg2: 0000000080050031
Arg3: 00000000000006f8
Arg4: fffff80002ed14d0
SFC /scannow

We usually ask people to do this command to check if Windows is corrupted. It's the most common used one to check if the Windows files are corrupted. If it'll find errors, it'll restore them.
Tip   Tip
If you're having a custom customization layer on your Aero, it's likely to get restored to default.

Press Start | search 'cmd' | Right-click it
| open as Admin | type SFC /SCANNOW

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
