Windows 7: Strange BSOD pattern every week or so.

12 Mar 2015   #1

Strange BSOD pattern every week or so.

Hi everybody

First time posting because I got a peculiar problem in my hands and don't really know what to do anymore.
Hopefully some of you here can help me solve this issue.

Ill try to explain this as well as i can:

Very randon bsod. Can happen during a game or while in the internet.

I get the bdos (which i hope you can see in the attachment), computer shuts downs and that's it.

I started up again and my screens are just black. Here's where it gets interesting for me ....

I'll start up my computer multiple times. Sometimes i can hear my hard drive starting (from the spinning sound) and sometimes it doesn't. Either way, the screens are black.

I literally have to sit there 30 minutes waiting and it just magically fixes itself like nothing had happened and it works fine for 5-7 days.

Same thing happened tonight but after the bsod, i saw this message : Bootmgr image is corrupt. The System cannot boot.

Another interesting thing is i tried testing my ram by taking one out and putting the other and botting etc...

I take one ram out.. my computer beeps.
I put back the ram and take out the beeping one... it beeps again.
I simply switch their places in the slots and again it beeps.
I put them back as they are originally... no beeping.

It's like they bound to that slot!

Worth noting they only work in the 2-4 slots .. not in the 1-3 slots.. computer just beeps if i do that.

I build this pc myself around 5 years ago maybe. It was my pride and joy and I understand i might be having to let her go...

Is there anyway I can save her for a little longer?

Any help will be highly appreciated!

Welcome to the forum.

The dump doesn't provide much details. However it does look like it happened in the process running NVstream. How often do you use the software?

Have you check for an update on the BIOS?

Thank you for your reply

I just searched now what Nvstream is. I never use it. Didn't even know i had it ! Getting rid of it could be the source right ? I assume it's a simple unistall from control panel.

Never really ever found out or read on how to update a BIOS .... Will look it up unless you can provide some guid lines on how to do it.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

I tried updating form the link you provided and it said that it was the same version as mine.

I also went to nvidia experience >preference> and disabled nvstream from there. Is there anything else that dump file says i need to do ?

Could that simple nvstream be the cause of beeping ram and all that stuff i described ?

I've had nvidia gfx cards on this system since the beginning.

Driver Verifier runs in the background, "testing" drivers for bugs. If it finds one, a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) will result; the corresponding dump file will hopefully show the faulty driver.

Simply follow the instructions on tutorial:
