Windows 7: Random BSOD'ing: Kernel-power and ntfs.exe?

02 Feb 2014   #1

Random BSOD'ing: Kernel-power and ntfs.exe?

First time posting here, should show how desperate I am to get these issues rectified. Not really sure what is triggering these BSOD's. At first I figured it was due to bad RAM, but now the crashes seem to come in two's. Once out of no where, and then again as soon as I log into my profile. After that, it seems to run fine...until it decides to crash again.

Fairly new to all this technical stuff as well. For now, I'll have a .txt file attached to this post with info on my crashes. Looking with NirSoft BluescreenView, I've actually had a number of crashes related to different things. It's all spanish to me. And I certainly don't speak spanish. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Usual causes: Disk corruption, insufficient physical memory, Device driver, Indexing, Resident antivirus, backup, defrag programs, Disk/Drive failing/failure

From your system:

OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
System Type x64-based PC
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 2.00 GB
Total Physical Memory 2.00 GB
Available Physical Memory 0.99 GB

Its low for a 64 bit Ultimate.

BTW, can you post a report following Windows Genuine and Activation Issue Posting Instructions ?

.99GB? That's...odd. To be noted, I originally had 3 sticks of memory installed. One that came with the Rig (a PNY brand of RAM) and 2 I bought separately for more memory. Currently, I have the newly bought sticks in by themselves and removed the PNY, as PNY was never listed as compatible RAM for this particular mobo. Though it still boggles me a bit that I'm barely getting half of their use for some reason.

But as much as I can gather, are you basically saying that my issues are due to low memory?

Apparently the issue is low memory. And if you use multiple RAM sticks with mismatched FSB, then you will get the average memory only.
