Windows 7: BSOD ntoskrnl.exe (Help please!)

BSOD ntoskrnl.exe (Help please!)

For the better part of a year I’ve been trying to figure out why I get random BSOD almost always cause by ntoskrnl.exe… (ntoskrnl.exe+7cd40 and ntoskrnl.exe+75b80)

I just about tried everything I could read about and I’m starting to suspect that it’s a hardware issue.

The strange thing is that quite a few times my computer crashes after my browser has crashes too. Also it almost never crashes when playing games….

I’ve reinstalled Windows 7 a few times. And run Chkdsk many times.

I’ve tested my ram for 10 hours, tested my harddisk, stress tested my graphic cards and CPU.

I’ve tried using both the OEM drivers and the newest drivers.

Tried with and without windows updates.

I know AVG, daemon tools and mcafee sometimes causes problems , so they’re not installed.

And probably tried a few things I can’t remember right now.

Now I’m hoping someone here can help or at least figure out what exactly the problem is.
I suspect it might be my Intel Graphics Card… For a long time I suspected my Wifi-thingy, but the the computer should crash while playing online games, right? Also, I don’t if it can be ram problems that memtest86 doesn’t pick up???

All the help I can get I greatly appreciated!!

(P.s. First post here, so I hope everything is as it should be)

It might be a hardware error.

Those UserMode Root Bus enumerator entries making me think that hardware tests should be done at first.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Let us know the results.

Ok, the results are in. I ran all the tests, some I have done before, but did it again to be on the safe side.

Memtest86+ 10 hours. - PASSED

Prime95 2+ hours (99 tests) Hope that's long enough. 0 errors, 0 warnings. - So PASSED

Furmark Burn-in benchmark Intel HD 3000 - PASSED

Furmark Burn-in benchmark Nvidia GT 635M - PASSED

So all good I guess. Is it possible it sould be my Wifi LAN or perhaps (a wildshot) my router...

Oh and btw, I've downloaded the Diagnostics tool from western digital and checked my harddisk, also passed.

And my browser is still crashing a lot, sometimes followed by a BSOD.

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.

Ok. Here's a bunch of new dumps.

All of these are from crashes after I've enabled Driver Verifier AND all are while or just after rebooting. Non of them are from when the computer is running (though that's just a matter of time).

Hope that's ok... And thanks a lot for your help so far, Arc!

And yet another minidumb. This time I got a BSOD while the computer was up and running (with verifier enabled).

Again my browser started acting up and shortly after the computer crashed.

Uninstall the audio driver. Then clean all the leftovers using Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling.

Now install the latest version downloaded from Realtek

Almost all the DV enabled crash dumps are saying the same thing.
