Windows 7: BSOD while browsing with Chrome - why?

BSOD while browsing with Chrome - why?


I'd really appreciate it if someone could look over these files and see if you can find the reason why my PC got a BSOD.

I haven't got a BSOD in about a year so this is really unusual, which is why I'd like to find out what caused it.

This means a trap occurred in kernel mode, and it's a trap of a kind
that the kernel isn't allowed to have/catch (bound trap) or that
is always instant death (double fault).  The first number in the
bugcheck params is the number of the trap (8 = double fault, etc)
Consult an Intel x86 family manual to learn more about what these
traps are. Here is a *portion* of those codes:
If kv shows a taskGate
        use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv.
Else if kv shows a trapframe
        use .trap on that value
        .trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken
        (on x86, this will be the ebp that goes with the procedure KiTrap)
kb will then show the corrected stack.

Usual causes:  Memory corruption, Hardware (memory in particular), Overclocking 
failure, Installing a faulty or mismatched hardware (especially memory) or a 
failure after installing it, 3rd party firewall, Device drivers, SCSI/network/
BIOS updates needed, Improperly seated cards, Incompatible storage devices, 
Overclocking, Virus scanner, Backup tool, Bad motherboard, Missing Service Pack
If you are overclocking your system, please return all overclocked components to their stock speeds. If the BSOD's are found not to be caused by the overclock, you can re-overclock the components once we have finished the diagnostics.
This is overclocking software and can lead to system instability and BSOD's. Please reset all components to their stock speeds and then remove the software.

Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial in order to rule out the faulty stick.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

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

If Memtest86+ does not find any errors with ram run Windows Memory Diagnostics for 7-8 passes following its tutorial:Let us know the results.

Thanks koolkat, really great help!

It would make sense that it is my memory that is the cause here as I had the exact same problem around a year ago which I fixed by increasing my memory voltage. I haven't touched any setting in the BIOS since then so maybe one of my memory modules is becoming faulty - I will run the memory tests and hopefully I can figure this out.

Thanks again I really appreciate it.

Ok I've already run into something strange with Windows Memory Diagnostic.

I ran 8 passes of the standard test and no errors were found.

However when I run an extended test it'll always get stuck on 21% of the first pass. I can still press buttons like F1 to go into the options but it is really sluggish. Even when I just press the caps lock key on my keyboard it takes 2 seconds for the light on my keyboard to turn on - which is something that happens instantly usually.

Basically it gets stuck on 21% (I left it on 21% for 1 hour before giving up) and my PC becomes sluggish - but doesn't freeze.

Is this a sign of bad RAM or is the diagnostic tool at fault?

P.S. I'll be running memtest86 when I go to bed in a few hours.

You could try either updating Chrome or removing it from your system, run CCleaner's registry cleaner at default settings, reboot and download and reinstall the newest version of Chrome.

I think Windows memory diag tool is buggy and not very helpful. Memtest will give better results, if you get even one error, stop the test and go to the next step, i.e. testing RAM in different slots.

After running memtest twice, 10 passes each time and it not picking up any errors I decided to just re-install chrome and lower a couple of my RAM timings in the BIOS.

So far my PC has been running flawlessly, so I'm going to mark this as solved.

Thanks for the help Britton and Koolkat!

I have never had issues with my computer until today. I bought some RAM as an upgrade, installed it, booted fine, then after opening up a few windows in Chrome, it crashed. It happened 3 times, same scenario. I couldn't read much of the BSOD, most of it was out of my monitor's FOV.
