Windows 7: BSOD after mobo / memory upgrade - system freezes - etc

BSOD after mobo / memory upgrade - system freezes - etc

So, let me see. I upgraded my system to an MSI 990FXA-GD80 with GSkill Ripjaws X 16gb 1600 (in 2x8gb sticks that came packaged together so presuming they matched them.) F3-1600CD9-16GXM that GSkill says is compatible with the MSI board. Though the bios only sees it as 1333 when set to auto. No luck unsetting auto and setting the values to what is listed from GSkill, still BSOD errors almost daily and total system freezes that last several minutes that happen every few hours. So I can safely assume that isn't the issue or it's one symptom of a bigger issue. Already did a chkdsk boot up scan of the primary hdd and no errors where found. Did a boot up MemTest86+ test, in one pass no errors. Since I am getting one of two BSOD errors, Kernel InPage Data Error and a Stop 0x000000F4 error, I am pasting the requisite zip file and hope someone can point to what might be the problem. I already reinstalled Windows 7 twice, once after the upgrades and one a week later, already that was about a clean install, in both cases, as one can do, I formatted the partition Windows 7 is installed on before reinstalling Windows 7, didn't fix the problem. Oh! The dmp files in the archive are old, one is from the 17th the other from the 20th, even though according to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced Settings -> Startup & Recovery shows it is set to create a dump file and to not restart automatically. Help?

Update: While waiting, I started a surface scan of the data hdd for good measure. I went into file explorer, right clicked on the drive, properties, tools, scan disk with the surface scan check marked. Mid way though explorer.exe started to eat more and more memory until it was eating over 12gbs, system lag insued and then another (two today) BSOD, this being a Kernel Inpage Data Error (Stop 0x0000007A ). Oddly enough it froze at "Initializing Disk for Crash Dump", waited a good 5 min or so with no change in status so the new upload will have the same old dump files but the rest should, hopefully, be updated.

Hello BelGarion mate the one thing you mentioned re the RAM only showing up as 1333MHz now if the new board is anything like my Asus Ivy Bridge one the EUFI BIOS has 1333MHz as a default speed for the RAM and it has to be clocked up if you want any speed out of the RAM - mine is fully clocked to 2400MHz.

Now have you got any new dump files at all??

Nope. The two in /minidump are from the 17th and 20th, the memory.dmp file is also the 20th and a wopping 1gb in size.

Ok well the only stuff I can see is there is a problem with disk hardware in all those files so maybe a run with Seatools would not go amiss. https://www.google.com.au/?gws_rd=ssl#q=seatools

Let us know how that one goes

Another surface test is this
HARD DRIVE SURFACE TEST
Now as opposed to the usual drive testers this specifically tests the surface of (usually) a spinner.
It will test the surface of the spinning disk, and I suspect some idea of the performance of the read / write heads.
Download this http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html my pic will give you the instruction on what to do. It does take some time but it does cover most possibilities with a drive in conjunction with the other testers like Seatools http://www.seagate.com/au/en/support/downloads/item/seatools-win-master/

The new (and primary) drive is Western Digital and, yes, I did run the WD Diag tool on the drive, says all is good. The Seagate is just a secondary data drive. But I'll give the Partition Wizard thingy a try.
