Windows 7: Various blue screens, mainly caused by ntoskrnl.exe

Various blue screens, mainly caused by ntoskrnl.exe

Edit: im currently running a memory diagnostics to see if my ram is corrupted, it didnt occur to me to do it till now but it seems that some of my hardware has problems, im not sure what yet but i know now that its not all just my windows install

Recently i did a clean install of windows 7 from my own personal copy, I normally dont have any problems after a fresh install but today ive had quite a few blue screens, mainly caused by ntoskrnl.exe but i also saw another by dxgmms1.sys. All the drivers i have installed are factory supplied.
this is the list of drivers ive installed after install:
nvidia geforce 500 series driver (i run a gtx 570 for reference)
sabertooth 990fx realtek ethernet driver

and other than that nothing.
i ran windows update immediately once i installed the two above and then i installed wow again.

then the problems started and i got constant blue screens every 20 min or so.
i refilled my reservoir for my water cooling tank and ive turned off all the overclocking on my pc. Then when it seemed like the blue screens wouldn't pop up anymore i loaded wow and i can barely stay on for 5 min. before i got the dxgmms1.sys blue screen.

I would really like if you guys could help me out on this.

Here is a zip of all the crashes that have happened to me today.

First, download the network card driver from manufactuer's website, Realtek
Then reinstall the driver:

  1. Click the Start Button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the Start Menu Search box and press Enter.
  2. Double click to expand "Network adaptors".
  3. Right click your network card and click Uninstall.
  4. Check "Delete driver software for this device" check box, click OK.
  5. Restart the computer
  6. If windows does not auto configure the appropriate drivers at startup, install the downloaded one manually.
And then, try to recover the error that is saying to be ntfs.sys.
  1. Update your SSD's Firmware (skip it, if it is not a SSD)
  2. Re-seat the sata and power.
  3. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  4. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
Free up the startup.

  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept the restart.
Let us know the results.

Thank you for the help, but after having run memtest overnight, it turns out that my ram sticks have bad address ranges, 71680 error ranges to be exact, spread across all 4 ram sticks. I believe this to be the main cause of the blue screens and I am sending them in to be replaced as soon as I can. Again thank you for the help.

Unfortunately I haven't got it from the dumps. As the physical verification says that RAM is faulty, replace it, and let us know the results :)
