BSOD after clean install on new SSD drive

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x64 ?
- the original installed OS on the system
- full retail version

- What is the age of system (hardware)? approx. 1 year, ssd drive new
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) clean install

I have recently (4 days ago)aquired a new Crucial 128Gb ssd drive and performed a clean installation of windows 7 64bit, since then i have been experiencing random BSODs (3 times so far)
All software is genuine. Have performed full malware and antivirus check. Results are clean.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Hello baobab. Welcome to Seven Forums.
BugCheck 50, {fffff81c0a30a8c0, 0, fffff880016e1c73, 5}

Probably caused by : Ntfs.sys ( Ntfs!NtfsFcbTableCompare+3 )



BCCode x50 generally refers to Faulty Ram.
RAM test with Memtest86+
Certain Bug Check Codes(BCCodes) or combination of BCCodes, are indicative of faulty RAM. Memtest86+ is an offline program specifically written to test RAM and uncover errors. Memtest86+ tries to verify that the RAM will accept and correctly retain arbitrary patterns of data written to it, and that there are no errors where different bits of memory interact, and there are no conflicts between memory addresses. Memtest86+ is open source, which means it is free to use.

Systems may have one or more sticks of RAM. These individual sticks are called DIMM. If Memtest86+ finds ANY errors, most likely, you have defective RAM. There are some cases where the DIMM slot, themselves, can be bad.

Should you receive any errors during the tests, stop the test. You will need to test each stick independently in each DIMM slot. Follow proper ESD Safety! Remove all but the first stick. Resume testing. If you receive(or dont) errors, note on a piece of paper that DIMM 1 failed(or passed) in Slot A1. Stop the test, move the stick to slot A2, resuming testing and taking notes in this manner, until all DIMMs have been tested in all DIMM slots.
** Memtest86+ V4.20 (25/01/2011) **
Should you need more help with any of the testing or setting up for it, you may either post back with any questions, or refer to our tutorial here RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Update your BIOS, you are multiple revisions behind. GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 (rev. 1.0)

Also, update all of your drivers, specifically the storage drivers. GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 (rev. 1.0)

Remove Daemon Tools, it is a known source of problems.

Remove Gigabyte ET6 and Smart6, they are known trouble makers as well.

And, last but not least, go to Crucial's website and ensure that your SSD has the latest Firmware installed.

That should keep you buys for a bit. All of these things need to be done. After doing them, let us know how the system is running.

Hi James
Thanks for your reply, there have been no memory errors after 2 passes. I've updated the bios and drivers.
I've got no daemon tools installed nor gigabyte et6 or smart6.
I hope the BSOD will not occur again.

Thankks again.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

If you do get crashes again, please run Memtest86+ for more than two passes. We recommend 7-10, and more if you can.

Further reading: Finicky RAM.

Also, let us know if you do not have any crashes. If you do not, you may also mark the thread solved. :)
