Windows 7: BSOD random?

20 Nov 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
BSOD random?

I had a BSOD problem with my machine a few months ago and it seemed to be revolving around a USB3 driver issue. The drivers were always up to date and I tried several things with no solution. I thought I tried everything to fix it and then a friend of mine made a wierd suggestion of using less memory using msconfig. I put the memory down to 4Gig (I have 16 Gig) and I actually forgot that I had did that until recently. I changed it back to 16 Gig and now the BSOD is back.

The first time it happened I noticed there was an explation point like usual in the device manager. I checked again and there was a few updates for the computer hardware (including the USB3) I installed the updates. I have gotten the BSOD a few times and checked but it does not appear to be the USB3 driver anymore. I am not sure what is causing it.

I dont know if the memory change I did actually helped or if it was just coincidence.

Any help would be greatly appreciated I try to save my work often but it is really frustrating when working on a CAD project and I forget.

I also noticed it happened to me a few times where I go to shutdown the computer. I click shut down and shut off my monitors. After a few minutes of still hearing the fans run i turn the monitors on and see the login screen. When i login I usually see the windows BSOD notification and just re-shut down.

and advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'd suggest to uninstall any "Internet Security" antivirus software from the computer with its relevant uninstall tool (search in google) and use Microsoft Security Essentials with the great combination of Malware bytes (for testing purpose preferred.)

Recommended antivirus program for Windows 7 based on stability compared to others:-
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.

Run the System File Checker that scans the of all protected Windows 7 system files and replaces incorrect corrupted, changed/modified, or damaged versions with the correct versions if possible:
  • Click on the
  • Type CMD on Search
  • Left click and Run as Administrator
  • Type SFC /scannow

I was able to do everything that you mentioned (minus the video drivers) and it BSOD on me 2x back to back. Ive uploaded the new zip file and am hoping for some feedback and maybe this has some more info as for the BSOD? and possibly another solution.

I will do the video driver uninstall tomorrow and re-install the older drivers.

The last dump file is of 18th.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

Here is the latest BSOD. Hopefully there is more info on this than before to help you.

Also would there be a reason my external USB drive always "clicks" right before it would BSOD on me? just curious

Thanks for the help

No new dumps.
You should test the RAM sticks individually.

Do you get BSOD-s in safe mode?
