Windows 7: Random BSOD problems in the past 2 days. Random errors at random times

Random BSOD problems in the past 2 days. Random errors at random times

Three days ago my water cooling failed (got up to 77C while gaming is when I noticed the problem as my CPU should not go over 62C). I decided to install an aftermarket heatsink instead of a new water cooling system ,and add a few more fans just to make sure my whole motherboard was getting plenty of air flow. I installed a Cool Mater Hyper Plus 212 heatsink. I followed the instructions, and looked at a few installation videos on my phone just to be sure. I'm pretty positive everything was done correctly including the thermal paste as my system has not gone over 45C while gaming even playing games on Ultra settings.

I got one BSOD late last night, after about 6 hours of it being on but no other problems after that. Today however I have been having BSOD issues the entire time at random times from just 5 minutes up to 2 and a half hours between BSODs. They have ranged from: NTSF_FILE_SYSTEM, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

I have researched the errors on google all day and tried fixes for each one such as running memory diagnostic tool, deleting the old page info from memory and creating a new one, deleted all of my video drivers and reinstalled them, and I've even opened my case to make sure all my memory and cards are plugged in all the way.

These are the errors that BlueScreenView gave me:

If this does not provide stability. Test RAM.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.
information   Information
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Tip   Tip
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

Thanks for the reply. I have used Revo to uninstall both advanced system care and mcafee. I ran disk check on my hard drive from the CMD and it reported back no errors. I do not have a blank CD or USB with me right now to use the ISO for memtest86, but I did the windows memory diagnostic (7 passes) and it reported no issues found. I know There are sometimes conflicting reports between WMD and memtest so i will have to try that some point soon. There is a problem with testing the RAM sticks one by one. With the new heatsink I installed, and the way my motherboard is laid out the heat sink is over top of 2 of the RAM sticks. Not touching them, but only about an inch and a half or so of space. The only way to get to them is to uninstall the heat sink which I would need to remove the motherboard from the case to do.

If i take out the mother board, remove the heatsink, and place the motherboard back in the case with no cooling system on top of it would it stay cool enough to test the RAM one by one without causing damage? Also, would you recommend that I reformat and install a fresh copy of windows 7 in case the advance system care did damage or remove files?

Never, under any circumstances, even turn your computer on without a fan and heatsink attached. With an 1 or 1.5" space, you may be able to get the stick out. You can also run tour board outside the case if it needs it. I have one running on a cardboard ( no conductive) box right now. Run the test with both sticks in and see if you get errors. Run it for 8 passes or overnight, which most people do because it will take it several hours to run 8 passes. Also, there are 2 similar tests. memtest86 and memtest86+. Be sure to use the 86+ version. It is much better.

My computer became more stable after deleting those programs, but I am unable to run Memtest86+ for some reason. I got a blank rewrite able CD, downloaded the ISO, extracted it, and then burned it to the CD. It did not boot from CD so i restarted, entered BIOS, and made sure my cd drive was first priorty. Still would not boot memtest. I found an old USB drive and formatted it and installed the memtest USB install on it, went back into BIOS and made USB first boot priority and It still did not boot. It simply just jumps straight to starting windows.

I'm attaching another SF file of the errors over the past 2 days of looking at everything.

Go to Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool and look at the 2nd group down, memtest86+ V 4.20, go to the 5th one down and download the auto installer for USB key. download that. Insert your usb key and note the drive letter. Run the downloaded file by selecting the usb key drive letter and checking the format usb box. It will install it onto the usb drive. Boot from the drive and run it for 8 passes. It will take several hours, so run it overnight or until you get an error. to stop just press ecape on the keyboard and you will reboot into windows.

I'm not sure what to tell you. I've never had a computer that won't boot from it if done right. With the pre configured USB installer it will install it to the USB drive. With the ISO file, just double click it and try windows disk image burner. Maybe there is something in this tutorial(RAM - Test with Memtest86+) that will help. But, for the CD, the iso has to be burned to the CD not copied. Windows disk image burner will do that or many of the disk image burners.

I was finally able to get memtest86+ to run using a different USB. Not sure what was wrong with the other one. I let it run for 12 hours straight and it listed no errors with all 4 sticks of RAM still installed. I also checked my BIOS version and compared it the manufacturer. The last BIOS update for my motherboard was a 2010 version and my version of BIOS is labeled as the 2010 version so that is not the problem either. Since it's not RAM, my hard drive, video card drivers, or my BIOS I'm not sure what's causing the BSODs. I have just reformatted with a fresh install of Windows 7 and hoping that it will run fine now. We'll see what happens.
