Windows 7: Random BSOD stop error 0x0000001E, hardware error?

Random BSOD stop error 0x0000001E, hardware error?


A few days ago I got a random BSOD with the 0x0..1E stop error. Now my computer will rarely boot and when it does it still randomly gets the same BSOD. I once got a 1D stop error but its mostly 1E that keeps happening. I run Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and this time I used a Windows DVD to start up my computer. One time and only one I got the error message (while booting the computer) "BOOTIMGR corrupt, system couldnt boot" or something like that. I restarted my computer after I saw that and it was gone. I've attached two ZIP files of two different .dmp files that were created today with about 15-20 minutes in between them. Is there something wrong with my bios? If not, what could it be?

Thank you for any support, greatly appreciated

Also maybe worth noting that I had not updated drivers in a while, right after posting this I updated my monitor's drivers. The rest were up to date.

I just updated my BIOS (using an ASUS P5Q motherboard) and it's been working for about an hour. I'd still like some help in case the issue returns.

Also shameless bump!

Hi Rymdlennart,

You will have to post back another .dmp file if your system crashes again.

Also by updating the Bios, you have most likely fixed your issue as that was
a recommended course of action

If you crash again:

Firstly can you reconfigure windows to collect the correct info
You want "Mini-Dumps"

Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Also here are the instructions for posting:

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Hopefully you will not need to do this...fingers crossed
