Windows 7: Experiencing randomly timed, but consistently marked BSODs.

22 Jan 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium
Experiencing randomly timed, but consistently marked BSODs.

I am experiencing randomly timed BSODs, always on my desktop or in windows. No problem with games. My temps are all good. Computer recently dusted. 1-2 month old W7 install.

The ONLY software I recently installed were Virtual Clone Drive and Microsoft Virtual CD when I was attempting to mount an old .iso of mine (a legal one!). Also Visual Studio 2012 Pro. No new GPU drivers or anything.

The BSODs started after I installed the three pieces of software above. I removed VCD and deleted Virtual CD's folder before making this post.

The three most recent BSODs all say PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA with code 50.

The FIRST bsod had a different code, System Service Exception, code 3b.

I have seen win32k.sys on every BSOD screen, but Blue Screen View sees ntoskrnl.exe and dxgkrnl.sys for the recent three instead.

I attached the GRAB ALL zip from SF Diagnostic Tool.

My specs are:

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz
ASRock Z68 Extreme7 Gen3
BIOS Date: 09/21/11 21:37:25 Ver: 04.06.04
8.00 GB G.Skill Siper 1866mhz

(1) M4-CT128M4SSD2
(2) Samsung SSD 840 EVO 500G
(3) ST3400820AS
(4) WDC WD1001FALS-00E3A0
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series (2) Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7600 Multiprocessor Free

Any help is appreciated.

Hello and welcome to SF CubemonkeyNYC :).

The dump file are not providing a very definitive cause, in such cases we call upon Driver Verifier
to help uncover the culprit.

First step is updating to Service Pack 1:

Once that is done follow this detailed quote on enabling Driver verifier:

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.

I installed SP1 - not sure how I missed that when I last formatted.

I set up DV last night. Will post any results.
