Windows 7: Driver BSODs on Windows 8 and 7

24 Jan 2014   #41

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 32-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

The motherboard was probably bought new from Newegg or some other computer parts store online.

As for trying different memory, I'll see what I can do.

Here's another dump: Attachment 303225

Usual causes: Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS

Specifically your optical drive:
*                                                                             *
*                        Bugcheck Analysis                                    *
*                                                                             *

Invalid system memory was referenced.  This cannot be protected by try-except,
it must be protected by a Probe.  Typically the address is just plain bad or it
is pointing at freed memory.
Arg1: d6e99543, memory referenced.
Arg2: 00000001, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.
Arg3: 837eba0b, If non-zero, the instruction address which referenced the bad memory
Arg4: 00000002, (reserved)

Debugging Details:



IMAGE_NAME: hardware


MODULE_NAME: hardware



Followup: MachineOwner
The errors you've had all deal in one way or another with memory or incompatible hardware:
  • 0xc80003f3 error is an out of memory error
  • STOP 0x00000019: BAD_POOL_HEADER
  • And again, STOP 0x00000050: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

From your post #39:
I believe the motherboard was bought online along with the case and all other internal pieces, excluding the graphics card. I'll double check with the builder of the computer when I can.
If at all possible and it were me, I would take the machine back to the builder, is the builder a friend or someone who has a business? Explain all the errors and see if s/he can help you to get your machine running reliably.

Start with the RAM. Then if that didn't help, go over each component individually for compatibility, if they do match the Windows Compatibility Center Then one of the components could be broken. You will need to check everything from the power supply to peripherals such as the printer, display, mouse, any hubs, routers, everything.

I will still be here, but until you start checking more into the hardware side of your machine, it seems pointless to keep posting dump reports that say, basically the same thing.

Here are a few Windows, and third-party programs you can try, their self-explanatory:

The system's ~5-6 years old, and I built it with my dad, so we don't have the details on the exact build and parts list - where we bought them etc.

I'll work on things on my side and post if I make any progress.

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 32-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Swapped the memory, and it looks like that was the problem. Going on ~36 hours with no BSODs, so far so good.

Interestingly, after I swapped the memory, my computer was having severe lag problems. I downloaded CPU-Z and saw I was only getting half clock speed. I reset the CMOS (remove battery, etc.), and it went back to normal.

So all problems might be solved now? At least for a while...

That is great news!

You showed good initiative with troubleshooting to notice the lag and use CPU-Z to find the problem and make adjustments. Could you list the make and model number of this "new" memory you're trying?

I'm under the impression that the OCZ2G8002GK RAM was installed when you first built your machine 5 to 6years ago and it was running fine until recently which caused you to start this thread, is that correct? If it is than something happened to upset your operating system (OS), CMOS, and RAM. Do you have surge protection?

Since we were able to straighten out your OS with A Guy, and NoelDP's help and you reset the CMOS you could try the "old" OCZ2G8002GK RAM again to see if it would be stable and not cause more BSOD's. If you get a BSOD with just changing the RAM the old RAM may be irreparably damaged even though memtest says its okay. You could try taking the RAM to a computer repair shop to have it tested if they have a dedicated RAM tester like these.

I searched for the OCZ2G8002GK in the OCZ forums
Search Results for OCZ2G8002GK settings - OCZ Forum

Here is a search of the OCZ forums using your G31M-ES2L MB:
Search Results for G31M-ES2L and OCZ2G8002GK - OCZ Forum

Both searches especially the latter with Gbyte MB's show instability with OCZ RAM. Maybe unfair because of the different MB and timeline, but this is from seven years ago:
I really doubt there is a permanent solution for now. OCZ is still working on resolving the problem. Gigabyte mentioned to me that even though your system could boot, your OS will not be stable. I wish this is not the case.

If your still interested in trying to boost the performance of either the old - if it still works - or new RAM you might want to start with this: A Newbie's Guide to Overclocking Memory | Overclockers and take note of the related guides listed at the bottom of the article under Related Posts, especially #3, overclocking is too involved to discuss in this thread, although you could try in our PC Custom Builds and Overclocking - Windows 7 Help Forums.

If your serious enough you could join either the OCZ or Overclockers Forums whatever you decide either in our Custom Builds and Overclocking forum or the two above be prepared to know settings and terms of:

CPU Speed - CPU - CPU Multiplier - CPU FSB - Memory Bus - DRAM:FSB Ratio
