Windows 7: BSOD occurring at login, browsing the internet. Error: 0x000000C4

BSOD occurring at login, browsing the internet. Error: 0x000000C4

Hello all! I'll try to format this post as best I can since I believe I'll be posting all relevant information. If you want to skip straight to the dump files of system crashes go straight to the bottom of the post.

Detailed Description of Problem(s)

I've gotten alot of BSOD errors lately that I believe stem from drivers due to my frankenrig set-up going on. The most recent errors are: 0x000000c4 (Device driver attempting to corrupt the system), IRQL, SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION and one Memory_Pool_Corrupt.

I would often get the SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION BSOD when I was attempting to update my GPU (Nvidia GeForce GT 730) driver before updating any other drivers on a fresh Windows 7 build. After I updated my core computer drivers first, I was able to install my GPU driver with no problem/BSOD.

Then my errors started occurring while playing Rust and World of Warcraft with a variety of different errors. The most prominent being IRQL BSOD message.

Today, however I tried to mass update the remaining drivers and I would consistently get "Device Driver attempting to corrupt the system" BSOD at least twice or three times an hour. I managed to get into Safe Mode and update drivers and my system has been surprisingly docile since I did that. I do plan to run a memtest in a bit while I sleep and update the results.

I am leaning towards a RAM issue but we'll see what the memtest turns up.

EDIT 2: Despite the consistent BSOD's that happened last night it seems me updating my drivers via safe mode MAY have fixed it. I just finished updating 35 system updates too so perhaps that'll add more stability. I'll keep updating this thread just in case someone else had a problem like me it'll be easy to document for them.

Your logs are incomplete, important files are missing that we need to analyze your issue/s. Follow Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions, let the tool run until it has completely finished and then upload the new logs.

Hi Boozad! Thanks for responding.

I uploaded the files again along with the results from the SF_Diagnostics tool. I was not sure which important files were missing as the first time I let the (or thought I did) let dm log collector run as it should so I added more files which hopefully help you out.

I also updated the memtest result and it appears to have only ran for 43 minutes. I was asleep and I can only assume that it froze up or something around the hour mark.
