Windows 7: BSOD Doing Anything, Different Errors Each Time

BSOD Doing Anything, Different Errors Each Time

Hello all,

I recently upgraded my system from 4GB of RAM to 8GB. The new sticks were identical in model to the original 4. At one time I also removed my video card and went with the onboard video. Put the video card back in today and still have problems. Each time the BSOD reports an error. Happens while video encoding, web browsing, or even while just sitting there. I did two different memory tests and everything checks fine. I even updated my BIOS and reset my BIOS, ran Windows Update, etc. Nothing seems to be working.

I followed the directions and attached the dump files from the SF Diagnostic tool. I hope somebody can help me here.

Thank you!

-Scott Davis

Actually, I think I've resolved the issue. It appears to be the RAM that I added, even though it was the same model as what I already had in there AND the ram tested clean. Last night, as a last-ditch effort to resolve the problem, I removed the new ram. All instabilities instantly vanished. Programs that were reporting corruption now work properly. No BSOD's since it happened either.

I guess I'll be RMA-ing the new RAM, and staying with 4GB from now on. Or maybe it's the RAM slots on my motherboard itself; no way to know.

Best of luck!
Have you done anything with your display driver yet? If not, let the thread be open!

One of the other things I did in attempt to fix the problem was putting my video card (GeForce 8000 GTX) back in. When I did that, I uninstalled the ATI drivers completely (those are the ones you referenced above) and installed the newest drivers for my GeForce. The BSOD's were still happening. It was only when I yanked the two sticks of RAM out that the problem went away.
