Windows 7: Windows 7 Daily Freeze and BSOD

The STOP 0x9C is a clue - it only happens when it's working with stuff from XP or earlier (with Vista and 7 it's a STOP 0x124). FYI - intelppm.sys is the processor driver - which is where the error report comes from when you get a STOP 0x9C

FWIW - I also have a P6T motherboard - and it is a bit frustrating to work with. No firm answers for some of the problems that I experience (my keyboard doesn't work right after boot until I type at least 4 characters - and I get BSOD's if I attempt to sleep/hibernate).

Lorian, please upload an MSINFO32 report according to these directions:
Quote:
MSINFO32:
Please go to Start and type in "msinfo32.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Save the report as an .nfo file, then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.

If you're having difficulties with the format, please open an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt and type "msinfo32 /nfo C:\Users\Public\Desktop\TEST.NFO" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Then navigate to the C:\Users\Public\Desktop directory to retrieve the TEST.NFO file. If you have difficulties with making this work, please post back.

Usasma,

Thanks for the stop error info.

Remember we talked about the intelppm.sys when I had an issue?

I posted about that here. In my case, it wasn't that driver, it was the Video card (found after 2 weeks of troubleshooting). However, like you mentioned, this driver seems to cause some errors.

Also compatibility with older programs is more of a concern since we take for granted the effectiveness of Windows 7 to run with older programs.

Try This

try this open msconfig and go to boot tab click on advanced and under number of processors check the box and set it to 4 and then check the box for max memory and set it to 6144 and reboot

Quick update..

I have x3 sticks of Corsair XMS3 2GB DDR3 RAM in my system.
As advised earlier in the thread, I pulled out 2 of them on Friday leaving just 2GB to see what happened and... the system was absolutely fine on both Saturday and Sunday!

I put one of them back in on Sunday night taking me back up 4GB and it was fine again today. If it's stable again tomorrow I'll reseat the 3rd stick for Wednesday which should in theory make it crash again..

Still confused but seem to be moving forwards finally...

I am hoping when they release SP1 we will see a lot of these strange bugs be gone

Hmm, it suggests a lot of things such as (and probably not limited to)
- Faulty RAM stick
- Low power supply wattage
- Corrupt page file
- Faulty Motherboard/ Mobo firmware
- OS corruption
- Driver problems (the most likely in my experience)

In pre-dual processor models SOMETIMES in rare circumstances (and no idea why) the RAM sticks liked to be in a certain order, I've had particular sticks that always needed to be the in slot 0 or the computer crashes, but put them in the slot they like and it works perfect. So if it crashes after you add the 3rd stick, please remove the last 2 sticks and put in the one that you think caused the crash, we need to ascertain if the problem is a particular stick, or if just increasing the RAM past your two sticks causes it.

On this note, are the RAM sticks the same model, type?

Well, I'm getting ahead of myself we haven't proven it's a RAM realted yet *whoops*, we'll await your findings and move forward from here.

i am not an expert here and have no idea how to read your bug reports, but my computer was hanging, not sure if BSOD or not becasue my computer goes to sleep and never wakes. had to hard restart/reboot. always told me "overclocking failed." wanted me to change my BIOS settings.

i read somewhere here that windows 7 does not like Firefox. i uninstalled it and now i have been up- no crashes for 3 days!

BTW, firefox did not need to be running to crash the computer, not sure why that is.

hope this is useful to you.
