Windows 7: BSOD when trying to run windows update (or occasionally with IE)

BSOD when trying to run windows update (or occasionally with IE)


I purchased a new PC today (spec below) and after booting it up for the first time and attempting to perform some windows updates, I found that some updates were failing to install, with no clear reasoning as to why. After this, I quite often get BSOD when loading windows update (seems to centre round .NET installations), trying to update drivers (primarily graphics) and occasionally just randomly with no discernable pattern.

I have attempted various fixes posted on the net for this type of error, including some tools from the microsoft website which also failed to complete.

I attach a zipped copy of the dmp files in line with your posting policy in the hope that someone can point me in the right direction. This was a Christmas gift and it would be heartening to be able to resolve this issue without having to send the entire machine back.

Should you require any more info, just ask and I will post.

Perform Memtest.

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.
information   Information
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Tip   Tip
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

Let us know the results.
