Windows 7: Tons of BSOD's

27 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64
Tons of BSOD's

I really hope I can get some help here.

I recently put together a computer build on Dec. 19th.(Specs below). I can't remember when exactly it started but from what I can remember it's been going on since day 1. I thought it was a driver issue at first but that doesn't seem to be the case. I get BSOD's when idle, browsing the web and playing any games.

I've attached my Minidumps in a zip file for someone to analyze.

I've just had a quick look and they are all pointing in different directions. At this stage I'd suggest it's h/ware based.

Since it's a new build, I'd suggest starting with memtest86 to check your RAM to begin with.

I changed my MCH core voltage from 1.1 to 1.2v, Memory multiplier from Auto to 4.00A and FSB from Auto to 266FSB. (This was suggested that I do from another tech site)

It was smooth for about 3hrs but I just crashed in a game. (Solid black screen, with computer still on - had to restart). I haven't had a BSOD yet since I've changed those settings in the BIOS.

Any suggestions?

Sorry for the delay.

Are they 2x2GB or 4x1GB modules?

A freeze is still indicative of problems.

First thing I would do would be to manually input the RAM timings and voltages.

The timings and volts should be on a sticker on the modules themselves. Alternatively use CPU-Z 's SPD tab to find what you need to set:

Attachment 44258

Since all those tests are failing Test 5, you can 'shortcut' memtest by running that test only until you get zero errors. (then run the entire lot overnight again)

If you still get errors after manually entering the settings, start by testing each stick individually. If each stick passes with zero errors, but still fails with all installed, use one stick and test each DIMM slot individually.
