Windows 7: Various BSOD errors

24 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Various BSOD errors

I'm not exactly sure why, but my computer has been going through many different BSOD lately. It happens often enough that I'm simply unable to use my computer anymore. While running the SF Diagnostic Tool, it crashed at least three times. If my computer is idle for long enough, it will eventually crash, although it crashes much faster if I'm running additional applications (anywhere from a few minutes to half an hour, but it usually doesn't last much longer than that).

I've attached the results of the SF Diagnostic Tool. I've only recently enabled saving of the dumps, so there may only be a few available.

If it makes a difference, my first BSOD, I remember vividly, was when I was playing an online MMORPG (TERA online). It's a very graphic and memory intensive game.

Also, there is another issue in which I will run a program (any program) and it will immediately error out and close, and Windows will say that the program has stopped running. This doesn't happen all the time, but it happens often enough.

Assuming that it could've been a software issue, I formatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows a couple days ago. Seeing that that didn't solve the issue, I was lead to believe (based on the dumps) that it could've been a memory problem. So, I went out and upgraded to faster RAM. This brought up a couple things to note: 1. it seems as though some of the RAM ports don't work? My RAM was being read on certain ports, but not others. 2. RAM doesn't seem to be the problem, since I'm still getting BSODs just as often. Unless it has to do with the ports...

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate: x64 (SP1)

Hello skyesciaran and welcome to Sevenforums.

* Did the crashes happen after you installed anything new as far as you remember (hardware, software & drivers)
* What's your temperatures just before a crash?
* Did your issues happen after, for instance, installing an antivirus?

Update your System Specs

Updating System Specs will give us a better sight of
how your system is put together. It's simply done.

BSOD Analyse

How long have you been running Windows 7 on this motherboard? I believe that your hardware barely can support running Windows 7. Your BIOS is from 2008 which could be problematic.

Here are some of my suggestions:

  • Search your hardware parts on the Windows 7 Compatibility Center, and ensure that Microsoft has approved the product to be 7 ready.
    • End with the Upgrade Advisor afterwards.

As you mentioned your memory, head to BIOS and see what voltages & clocks the sticks are running. Make sure everything is set to default.

Combining your crash dumps and the general view of BSODs culprits, I'd suggest you to have a look at your memory, the sticks. Through decades people have been using the bootable tool called Memtest86+ and it's basically very unique in these manners.
Be sure to check your warranty rules and regulations before opening your case.
* Memtest86+ is USB-ready, and can be booted directly from it. Download the flashdrive wizard.
* To ensure that either your sticks OR your motherboard slots are broken, it's necessary to do the below procedure-
* Pull out all sticks except ONE, scan it.
* If no errors, pull the scanned stick into another slot.
* Proceed like this until you've scanned all sticks individually, and all the slots.
Best Regards,
