Windows 7: BSOD with no specific situations/conditions observed

Windows 7 Professional x64
BSOD with no specific situations/conditions observed

My computer has been experiencing BSOD, and it seems to happen randomly. I can't pinpoint a specific thing that initiated it because it just seems to happen at any time, opening word documents, browsing the web, etc. Because I can't find a specific pattern, I don't know how to replicate the problem, it seem to happen on its own.

This is after a fresh install. It happened previously, and I figured I just need to reformat and do a fresh install.

OS: Windows 7 Professional x64 Service Pack 1

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB
Display adapter type: Intel(R) G33/G31 Express Chipset Family
Total available graphics memory: 256 MB

Hard Drive:
Primary (OS): Intel SSDSA2CW080G3 80.0 GB
Storage: Seagate Barracuda ST31000528AS 1000.2 GB
Western Digital Caviar Blue WDC WD5000AAKS-00V1A0 500.1 GB

Unfortunately, I'm not very familiar with troubleshooting computers, so I'll try to post as much as information as I can.

I used a app called BlueScreenView, and here's the information I got:
Caused by Driver: ntoskrnl.exe (3 times already), fltmgr.sys (1 time)

I tried crystaldiskinfo and it seems that all of my hard drives are fine

I would really appreciate it if someone can help me out, or if there's something missing or I haven't done that's stopping or preventing others from helping me.

Thank you

Hello raymond1688.

Make sure that your intel SSD is running with the up-to-date firmware.

Update D-Link DWA-552 XtremeN Desktop Adapter driver.
D-Link | Building Networks for People

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

The pool is already corrupt at the time of the current request.
This may or may not be due to the caller.
The internal pool links must be walked to figure out a possible cause of
the problem, and then special pool applied to the suspect tags or the driver

Attached is the memory dump that I've got after running the DV.

What happened was, I followed the instructions in the link posted above, and enabled DV. I ran it for 30+ hours and nothing happened, I opened multiple browsers hoping it would trigger it, still no luck.

So I decided to delete the settings and try it again. What probably happened was I clicked display settings instead of delete settings, and after I that, I couldn't boot back into Windows and ran into BSOD every single time. I booted into safe mode and it turns out I probably didn't select the right choice.

I grabbed a copy of the memory dump, hopefully this will be able to help solve what is wrong with my computer.

The DV enavled BSODs are also not giving any hint of a failing driver. So it may not be a driver, but somehow memory is the problem.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.

Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.

Arc, thanks for your response.

I actually ran Memtest86+ a couple of days ago, just because I didn't know what I could do. I got errors within 15 mins of running it the first time. But after that I wasn't able to reproduce the errors anymore. I tried running each stick individually and no errors came up. I ran all 4 sticks together for 30 hours (15 passes I think) and not a single error came up.

Is there any thing else I can provide or try that will help solve this?

Once again, really appreciate the help you've provided.

edit: I haven't updated my SSD or wireless adapter firmware yet, so I'll update that and try running DV again and post back.
