Windows 7: BSODs different errors, crash dump does not initialize/no dump files

BSODs different errors, crash dump does not initialize/no dump files

Please forgive me for any formatting problems or lack of posting etiquette as this is my first post.

Hi All,

I am experiencing constant BSODs during different activities, although a higher percentage of them are when playing games (any game). The error codes vary from 'PAGE FAULT IN NON-PAGED AREA' to 'IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL' to 'BAD POOL HEADER' to ‘SYSTEM SERVICE EXCEPTION’. To compound this problem, no dump files are generated in the Minidump folder. During a BSOD the system freezes at the ‘Collecting data for crash dump’/’Initializing disk for crash dump’ stage.

The lack of dump files being created started at the beginning of the year and did not coincide with any major hardware. Since then, I have installed a new video card (ASUS Strix GTX1080)

I have run multiple passes of CHKDSK, SFC Scannow, memtest86, Malware Bytes, MSE etc. all coming back clean.

Startup and Recovery options are set up as follows:

System failure
- Write an event to the system log (checked)
- Automatically restart (unchecked)
Write debugging information
- Small memory dump (256KB)
Small dump directory
- %systemroot%\Minidump
- Overwrite any existing file (unchecked/grayed out)

For Virtual Memory, the settings are as follows:
- Automatically manage paging file size for all drives (unchecked)
- C: (System Managed)
- E: (None)
- F: (None)
Total paging file size for all drives
- Minimum allowed: 16 MB
- Recommended: 24541 MB
- Currently allocated: 16361 MB

I have tried multiple different option settings here based on information available on this forum and others such as Tom’s Hardware etc. For example, if I let the system automatically manage the page files, it sets it to drive E:, even though my Windows drive is drive C: (neither makes a difference as far as halting the crashes though).

My Windows drive (C: ) is 104.75 GB total, 89.30 GB used, and 15.45 GB free. Drives E: and F: have 60+ GB of space each.

I am really at a loss as to what the problem could, especially considering there is no significant event that I can remember that caused the sudden lack of dump files.

Your report states that you are using a Non Genuine copy of software
This forum's Rules clearly state that help will not be provided to those using Non genuine Software.

Rule 4
No piracy or discussion of piracy allowed at all. Such as software, music, videos and other intellectual property violations (e.g. downloading youtube videos locally etc) - it is forum policy that no help shall be given to people who knowingly steal software or services.

One of the main reasons for this is that the act of pirating software will inevitably change the working of software and make investigation and repair impossible. Please install a legitimate copy of the software and if you are still experiencing the issue we will be pleased to assist - No further assistance will be provided until we are satisfied that the software is genuine.
