Windows 7: BSOD error 1A. Blue screen using Skype and streaming videos

01 Nov 2013   #1

Window 7 64bit
BSOD error 1A. Blue screen using Skype and streaming videos

My problem right now is that that I blue screen randomly while doing minimal things, and when that happens the USB's don't work after the automatic restart unless they are removed and re-plugged. I only had Chrome (Full screen movie), Skype (3-way call), and RaidCall (minimized) running, yet it still happens as often as every 10 to 20 minutes.

Also, this only started happening after an electrician came to replace the house's main breaker panel. Is it possible to corrupt memory through multiple power shortages? Chrome also randomly Aw Snap's multiple times when loading a webpage.

I will try MemTest overnight, but all the errors happen when I full screen a stream/movie. Not sure if its a coincidence or not.

EDIT: Just blue screened with an Error 4E - PFN_LIST_CORRUPT. I re-uploaded the attachment with the most recent crash.

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.
If memtest comes free of errors, 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.
