Windows 7: Constant 0x0000001a and 0x00000109 bsod's

BSOD 0x0000001a and 0x00000109 bsod's

Hello! I'd first like to say I'm very sorry for anything I post incorrectly, I'm trying to post according to the guidelines SO here's my issue.

For the past 11 months I've had issues with my custom built computer. Since day one I've been seeing 109, and 1a errors and about 3 days ago I re-installed windows yet again (I usually do it every 3-4 weeks). I've read that it may be my ram and have tried Memtest for 10+ hours several times with no errors. I'm starting to think it may be my motherboard or one of my video card drivers.

Attached is my recent dump files from the past few days and I also recently had a bsod (0x000000C4) I THINK from driver verifier that said gdrv.sys was a culprit.. I'm not quite sure what I'm doing but I know my mothers Phenom II computer runs a hell of a lot faster than mine and that should not be the case.

I've done zero overclocking and am hoping you guys can help me out some how with a way to remedy these issues.

BugCheck 1A, {41790, fffffa8009a21680, ffff, 0}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt! ?? ::FNODOBFM::`string'+35084 )
Usual causes:  Device driver, memory, kernel
This bugcheck suggests that a serve memory management error has occurred, more specifically looking at the first parameter which can see that a page table page has become corrupted.

Run some hard-drive diagnostics and follow these steps:Find your hard-drive manufacturer and run their tests.

Additional Tests:Post a screenshot of Crystal Disk Info summary:

Check for any file system errors and bad sectors using Option #2 of:Use this command with Disk Check:

chkdsk C: /f /r

Thanks for the reply!

I tried what you said and ran a chkdsk and the SeaTools while I was at work and they both said I have no issues with my disk and that the tests passed. However I was optimistic considering the one thing I never thought about when replacing my hardware was my hard disk.

I really have no idea how to read these BSOD dump files but I'm really trying to provide you with as much as I can.

Any other ideas?

I have no SSD and only a 1TB hard disk.

Screenshots of both the SeaTools and the CrystalDiskInfo are attached

Okay, the reallocated sectors count is not a good thing, this means that the hard-drive finds errors with certain sectors and then remaps these sectors to a special reserved area of the hard-drive, to enable the hard-drive to continue operation normally. More Info ~ S.M.A.R.T. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

For now, open Crystal Disk Info, click on the Caution, and then slide all the sliders to the left, and click Apply.

Have you make regular back-ups or images of your system?

Recreate your Page File -

  1. Go to Start and type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter
  2. Click on the Advanced tab
  3. Click on the Performance Settings button
  4. Click on the Advanced tab
  5. Click on the Virtual Memory Change button
  6. Uncheck the "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" box (it's the default)
  7. If the above box isn't checked, then make a note of what the paging file settings are
  8. Click on the "No paging file" radio button, then click on "Set"
  9. Answer Yes to the confirmation dialog that pops up.
  10. Click on OK 3 times (to close all the Windows)
  11. Reboot the system (this will delete the paging file)
  12. Once Windows starts, go to Start and type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter
  13. Click on the Advanced tab
  14. Click on the Performance Settings button
  15. Click on the Advanced tab
  16. Click on the Virtual Memory Change button
  17. Place a checkmark in the "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" box (it's the default)
  18. If the above box wasn't checked at first, then re-enter the paging file settings that you noted in Step 7
  19. Click on "Set" (it'll be greyed out if you checked the box 2 steps earlier
  20. Click on OK 3 times (to close all the Windows)
  21. Reboot the system (this will recreate the paging file)

I just did as you instructed and used CrystalDiskInfo to drag the sliders to the left and my drive is now showing a Good status in the program. My system is also feeling a lot quicker than usual. I also reset my paging file as you said and rebooted.

Assuming that the hard drive is in fact the issue, should I consider purchasing a new one? Like I said it's the only thing I never replaced in my system, aside from the DVD-RAM drive...

Attached is a screenshot of the new CrystalDiskInfo and I will reply back here if I receive any more bsod's or speed issues.

I wouldn't say you will have to replace your hard-drive immediately, but keep it in mind, ensure you have regular images of your operating system, if your not sure how to make to an image, then these two tutorials may be of use to you:Thanks for the update :)

Okay, So my system has been running great lately. It's quick and reliable as I was hoping for however this morning when I tried to boot up my computer I received a 109 bsod.. It seems to me, considering it occurred while the system was booting, that it is more than likely a HD issue, however I was curious as to what you thought of this.

Below is exactly what the Windows box said after rebooting as well as the dump so you can further analyze this issue.

Problem signature:
  Problem Event Name:	BlueScreen
  OS Version:	6.1.7601.
  Locale ID:	1033

Additional information about the problem:
  BCCode:	109
  BCP1:	A3A039D89EB0B71F
  BCP2:	B3B7465EF12D8675
  BCP3:	FFFFF8000347D000
  BCP4:	0000000000000001
  OS Version:	6_1_7601
  Service Pack:	1_0
  Product:	256_1

BugCheck 109, {a3a039d89eb0b71f, b3b7465ef12d8675, fffff8000347d000, 1}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!BBTBuffer <PERF> (nt+0x27d000)+0 )
Usual causes:  Device driver, Breakpoint set with no debugger attached, Hardware (Memory in particular)
The bugcheck indicates that kernel code or data was corrupted, either by a driver modifying code or the hardware which was holding the data has failed/failing and caused the data to become lost.

With the previous tests, the hard-drive is most likely to be causing this problem.

Do you have any other spare hard-drives you could install Windows on to test?
