Windows 7: Multiple BSOD in custom build can't tell if driver or hardware issue

17 Aug 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Multiple BSOD in custom build 0x0..01a, 0x0..024, 0x0..03b, 0x0..04e

I am getting various BSODs after installing Windows and still haven't figured out the cause of the problem and what I need to do to fix it.

Here is a log of what I did/problems I experienced (don't know if helpful):

-installed windows 8, drivers for motherboard, gpu, and wireless adapter
-installed avast, various softwares, chrome, borderlands 2
-could not start borderlands (encountered a problem and had to close with no explaination)
-tried to install path of exile, skyrim, BSOD during install process, pfn_list_corrupt, irql not less equal, others.
-Uninstalled Avast and fixed the Avast issue (ran whocrashed and listed Avast as a cause)
-Updated motherboard BIOS to 1.5, BSOD problem persists with game installs, chrome still crashes a couple times (Aw, Snap! crashes)

-Installed windows 7, got BSOD during installation process but was able to boot to OS, windows 8 files located in windows.old folder
-installed motherboard drivers directly from website, installed GPU drivers from disc (did not upgrade), installed wireless drivers from website
-could not install VGA driver from website due to compatibility error
-installed various software, tried to install skyrim, still BSOD
-tried to delete windows.old file but some parts are still left out (don't know if this is an issue or not)

-memtest: overnight with both memory sticks attached, 7 passes
-bluescreenview: all BSOD have ntoskrnl.exe highlighted in red (some have ntoskrnl and other drivers highlighted
-chkdsk didn't come up with anything
-sfc/scannow: located a problem, but was unable to fix
-ran DLGDIAG HDD website and passed, but SMART lists the HDD as FAIL
-getting multiple appcrashes and BEX problems from chrome, windows, and internet explorer throughout
-went into safe mode and successfully installed skyrim (a BSOD source)
-cannot open skyrim and "program might not have installed correctly" pops up
-installed malwarebytes but after install, gave appcrash and comp froze, requiring manual boot.
-ran sfc/scannow and got Memory_Management BSOD, could not complete scannow
-rebooted and successfully ran sfc/scannow, still shows a problem but could not fix

Thanks for the help in advance!

Your installation is counterfeit activated using the LENOVO (BLACKLISTED!) key.
There is no point analysing your issue as your system may be compromised by the Activation
exploit used.

The best course of action is to:
  • Purchase a legitimate Windows 7 licence.
  • Format the HDD.
  • Reinstall Windows and activate.
