Windows 7: New RAM installed, constant BSODS (ntoskrnl, ntfs.sys)

24 Oct 2015   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1
New RAM installed, constant BSODS (ntoskrnl, ntfs.sys)

I've been getting BSODS whenever I play some kind of PC game (FIFA mostly). I installed new RAM to get rid of my old 4GB stick that was also giving me BSODS as well. Here's some info, full minidumps and information included in the attached .zip.

As a side note, the reason my Nvidia graphics driver is kinda old is because everytime I update to a recent driver, I'll launch a game, and then the entire screen goes blank/grey and I get a notification saying "The Display Driver has stopped responding and has recovered". When I use an older driver I dont get this error at all.

I've also ran Memtest86 and Windows Memory Diagnostic on the new memory (model: KVR1333D3N9/8G ). Nothing showed up, despite running both tests twice.

you may have to try running memtest a few more times as apparently with this program sometimes it takes more than just a few passes for any issues with ram to show up. I would give that a shot and report back because it does sound like there could be some issue with the ram that you just installed with the issue possibly being one or more sticks could be bad. And yes even if they are brand new ram can still cause issues right out of the package. Ive seen and heard this before too many times to count.

Hi sixty01,

How many passes were completed with MemTest86+?
If MemTest86+ didn't reach at least 8 complete passes, please run MemTest86+ again.

New RAM installed, constant BSODS (ntoskrnl, ntfs.sys) Diagnostic Test New RAM installed, constant BSODS (ntoskrnl, ntfs.sys)

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 7 Forums

Note   Note

MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

For the GPU drivers, please try removing them using DDU
Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia

So I've ran Memtest again with 8 passes, nothing came up. I'm thinking its the motherboard. The A880G+ model doesnt have the 8gb stick as a supported memory hardware, I contacted BIOSTAR before buying and they said it should work without any issues. Still get frequent BSODS.

As the tcpip and netio drivers are also in the stack text, I recommend to update the network adapter drivers.
Thus, for the Realtek ethernet: Realtek
For the Realtek wifi USB adapter, check the manufacturer and make sure the driver is most recent.

Updated the network and usb drivers, as far as I know, they haven't been giving me BSODS, but I still get them frequently (other causes). I've also updated my Nvidia video card drivers as well. Take a look at the recent dm log file I've uploaded.

I did perform the diagnostics test, nothing came up, all that showed up was "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation". As of yesterday I deleted every Nvidia driver and performed a clean installation with the latest driver. Uploaded a new dm log.
