Windows 7: Getting a lot of IRQL bluescreens, but not sure if it's the RAM.

Getting a lot of IRQL bluescreens, but not sure if it's the RAM.

They seem to happen pretty randomly, often I'll just be browsing in chrome (once while typing this out)

I've run a few instances of memtest86 which haven't found anything, and I've swapped three sets of different RAM (three different brands at different speeds) in both of my dual-slots, which sometimes seems to help, but inevitably I get more BSOD.

I did a clean install of win 7, and had a lot of issues with the updater; I ended up using the standalone/offline installer which should have me more or less up to date.

I reapplied thermal paste to my CPU, and my temps are hovering around 50 C. Voltages/speeds are the ASUS Mobo's autodetect settings.


Thanks for the help.

Hi owenflass,

Did any BSOD occur when you had nothing installed?

Please remove PowerISO while troubleshooting.

Ironically, I just got this BSOD whilst uninstalling PowerISO:

Code:

And to answer your other question, I maybe remember (not sure) running into a BSoD or two while installing Windows updates (which was a huge struggle for some reason- wuauserv constantly froze or ate up 100% processor). But it only happens under machine load- so if i have nothing installed, or potentially even if i dont run any programs, it sits on the desktop indefinitely with no problem. I think.

I could almost say that that behaviour of Windows Update is normal, it is usually due to a buggy update or missing certain updates.

I would recommend to remove all programs and install all Windows Updates, then see if another problem occurs.

I'm currently suspecting the motherboard as a possible cause,
- RAM is most likely not the issue since you've used a few kits.
- HDD issues would've been visible, mentioning this one due to a few bugchecks you've had in the past
- GPU is similar to the HDD, issues would've been visible.
- Drivers unlikely if an up to date OS without any software has the same issue
- Cabling would usually show similar issues as HDD issues
- PSU? can't yet call this as a possible cause due to lack of information
- CPU? can't yet call this as a possible cause, no signs that this one could currently be a possible cause.

How old is the hardware?

I bought the mobo and processor together in October of 2013:

Intel Core i5-3350P Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 69W BX80637i53350P Desktop Processor - Newegg.com
ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS-Newegg.com

The GPU is less than a year old, and the RAM falls somewhere between the two, I think. PSU may be as much as 4 or 5 years old now, I'm not sure.

Is there a way I can view the draw of my system to see if it's approaching the capacity of my (650W Earthwatts PSU)?

I've had two more BSOD trying to post this, the latest being:
