Windows 7: Frequent BSOD even with fresh install and hardware check...

Win 7 x64 Ultimate
Frequent BSOD even with fresh install and hardware check...

Hi everyone,

My mom's pc, that I've build, is having serious issues. The frequence of BSOD's was almost one every hours...
So I've decided first to format and install Win 7 x64 ultimate, then I installed the up to date drivers (Lan, sound, chipset, gpu, webcam...) some were installed via the windows update manager. I've installed the USB 3.0 driver recommended on the Asus website, which is a Nec usb 3.0 controller... . BSOD's were still happening so I've decided to check the Ram, using memtest, I did 4 passes with no errors. Then I tested the CPU and GPU (the integrated one, as I've noticed that without the GPU on the PCI-E slot, BSOD's were less frequent) using OCCT for one hour on both with no errors... In the end I've uninstalled the USB 3.0 driver, as apparently it was also causing BSOD's.

I don't know how to check the other hardware such as : disks, the power supply (I changed it recently), and the motherboard itself. I am now wondering whether it is an hardware or software issue, that's why I'm posting here.
Before I attach the SF diagnostif folder, here are the specs of my pc:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition (no o/c)
GPU: integrated: AMD HD4250, and the one on the PCI-E a HD5850
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2*2GB 1600Mhz
Hard drives : main : WD Caviar Black 500GB secondary : Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB
Power supply : Antec HCG 520W

If you could help me, I would appreciate it, thanks!

It looks like Kaspersky is responsible for the BSOD's.
Please remove it for testing purpose. Use Microsoft Security Essentials.

Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other security software:

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Malwarebytes - Free

Good and Free system security combination.

Reduce items at start-up: Startup Programs - Change

Perform a clean boot: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Run a System file check (SFC): SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Run Disk Check on your Hard Drive(s): Disk Check

Check for heating issues using Speccy or HWmonitor

Win 7 x64 Ultimate

Hello, thanks a lot for the reply.
I had the time to :
- Uninstall kaspersky
- Install MSE
- Perform a clean boot

Regarding the System file check (SFC), I tried twice to do it, but a BSOD would appear before it finishes...
So I did the next step, a disk check, it was performed before Win 7 boots.
I wanted to do the next steps but even when I'm lunching google chrome, the software would just crash and a BSOD would appear... I'm in safe mode now.

If it might help you, I have attached the new BSOD's since I uninstalled kaspersky...
Thanks for the help (some parts of the logs are in french, if you need a translation tell me)!

Edit: after some further checks, the temps IDLE are correct, no hardware is beyond 50c, except for a sensor which is at 128C - 262F (TMPIN 2)? I think it's a faulty one. I still have a lot of BSOD's, especially with the BCC code 1e ...

Ok , I've uninstalled AMD overdrive via the device manager, as I could not find it in the catalyst install manager...
And for the Asus utility, I've erased all entry from the registry, I will tell you if there are further bsod's...
Another question, should I install the driver for the USB 3.0 or is it a cause for bsod's ? I would download it from here : ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 , it is from the Nec electronic corp

Edit : apologies but new bsods occured ..... here are the dmp files.
I am also attaching the data regarding the main HDD ( the Western Digital) and the second one, a Seagate.
It's quite insane though, I have a BSOD almost every hours... I've installed java to run minecraft and I had two bsods in a row... it's seems that I cannot install a thing without causing trouble, it may be an hardware issue ??

Thanks Arc for your reply...
In a desperate attempt, I thought that formating and re-installing Win 7 the cleanest way possible could solve things, but it did not... So in the end I still have BSOD's, the only thing that I've done so far was to install the Chipset driver, the GPU driver (added to that the Audio driver of the GPU), the Realtek lan and audio driver. I know that I still miss the USB 3.0 driver and the ATK0110 ACPI driver, but as koolkat said, It was a source of BSOD's so I did not installed it.

You'll find attached the driverview and msinfo32 folders, I think that the latter is in french though, if you have translation issues please tell me.

You need to try to update the BIOS and chipset.

Get it from ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3

Let us know after applying those.

** If you are unaware of the procedure of BIOS updating, take the help of somebody who can do it. Iven if a PC technician. A wrong attempt to update the BIOS may be fatal; but the update is needed.

I have successfully updated the bios using the asus ez flash 2 utility in the bios, and regarding the chipset, I used the driver 13.4 downloaded on the official website : AMD Chipset Drivers

Should I install the usb 3.0 driver or not??

I'll let you know if the update of the bios changed something, thanks

Edit: I did not had to wait to see new BSOD's.... here are the dmp files...

Yes, update the USB3 driver too.

But this BSOD is showing some absurd result.

Followup: MachineOwner
This driver cannot be the real cause of a BSOD.

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.

Ef memtest86+ does not show any error, 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

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.
