Windows 7: Plagued by random BSoDs

Windows 10 Pro x64

If you're on x64, you need to set DisablePagingExecutive to 1 to get good stack information, for what it's worth.

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 x64

And now I'm starting to get "frequent" usermode crashes. A while ago, LCore.exe (mouse profiling software) crashed, it crashed again about an hour later (after restarting it), and Explorer crashed while I was dumping. The exception from the Windows error reporting was ACCESS_VIOLATION, for both LCore.exe crashes and Explorer. Just added Windows Error Reporting to my "Bugcheck" custom view (in Event Viewer), and I can confirm that these ACCESS_VIOLATIONS go on for quite some time.

Random thought: is there some way to get the actual location on the RAM that a virtual address corresponds to? If this is some RAM failure, it is likely that everything would run into issues around the same block of RAM.

In other news, X apparently runs somewhat slowly partially since I'm on only 6GB of RAM, so I will probably see about upgrading to at least 2x4GB (replacing my 2GB stick). If there is a RAM issue on a single stick, it should be possible to isolate it with a bit of experimentation.
Just a side question, why should I have both sticks being the same capacity? I have 64MB+128MB in my main server box, something which adds up to 1.37GB in my game server box, and I have no idea what in a seperate Windows box; those three are rock-solid systems.

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 x64

Just a possible curiosity, I have my system in my custom "Display always on" power configuration, and it hasn't BSoD'd in the middle of the night when I leave it on (though note that some nights I put it to hibernation). Recently, I've only had to reboot the system when:
* Dial-up networking doesn't release (?) COM10 (BT link to my cell phone) properly when Bluetooth gets disabled (to note, it almost always releases the port correctly)
* Flash player causes the system to lock up (this one is confusing, since Flash doesn't have a kernel portion, and OS-reserved hotkeys (Super-L, Ctrl+Alt+Del, etc.) don't go through)
* Installing updates for Windows
* Swap blocks when X is unresponsive due to needing to swap

Quick update, I'm tending to not get BSoDs now, which is actually a step backwards because now I'm just getting lockups.

I'm still biased towards it being part of the display driver; no crashes in the middle of the night if the display doesn't go into standby, and most lockups are on battery power, where the display hardware is likely running a seperate graphics adapter (I'm not entirely clear on how the 7520G works).

The current driver versions are dated 11/2014, so any issue in them would have persisted for some time.

Since neither !thread nor !process are actually giving the IRP list (not implemented???), I currently have WinDbg searching for all IRPs for the hung thread.

I also got my symbol resolve issue fixed, so I'll look at some of my recent dumps when I have the chance.

EDIT: Terminating a process shouldn't prevent one from finding the IRP which is blocking the process from actually terminating, right?

Okay, just confirmed that the issue is 100% not caused by the graphics driver. Did a full wipe of the "old" one (which was the newest version installed, Nov 2014 IIRC), installed the original OEM driver set, switched the power profile to one which puts the display in sleep, went to bed. In the morning, Firefox had crashed and "HPOSD" had crashed (HP On-Screen Display, handles indication for e.g. brightness and volume when setting them). Unplugged my mouse and brought the screen back into sleep manually (PowerShell script), came back about 4 hours later and I had a BSoD, SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (looks like an attempt to both read and write at ff96f900`c0859370:

Uninstalled both imdisk and MagicDisc, in the one night of testing, I didn't get a BSoD, but Firefox still crashed. Research online indicates that MagicDisc could possibly be the culprit. Not marking solved until I can confirm the BSoDs are gone, though.

EDIT: They aren't.

Just a quick update over to here, I recently (2-3 days ago) removed AODDriver2.sys, and while I haven't yet done comprehensive testing, a couple oddities disappeared. Specifically, KeePass doesn't seem to ask for my password anymore when I change attached displays, and I no longer have to cancel the fingerprint reader when typing my Windows password after resume from standby.

I'm actually slightly surprised that nobody noticed or thought anything about AODDriver, given the number of hits I've gotten from sevenforums relating to BSoDs when I searched recently...

EDIT: Not the cause of issues.
