Windows 7: BSoD/Vertical Gray Line crash

BSoD/Vertical Gray Line crash

**Minidump attatched

Here's my system:
Mobo: Asus M4A78 Plus (latest bios version 1214, also latest chipset update)
Processor: AMD Phenom II X2 550 BE (i planned on OC'ing, but have not yet because of the crashes)
Overclocking: Not yet because the system is already unstable.
Vid Card: SAPPHIRE 100283L Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16
RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel
PSU: Thermaltake toughpower W0103RU 600W ATX12V / EPS12V
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
I've got a 3rd party Zalman CNPS10X Extreme cpu cooler on the phenom II. (which I have already taken off, removed the paste, and reapplied much more carefully).
I've got the latest of all drivers/software (all Win 7 64 bit compatible). I have completely reseated every component.
Problem: Annoying gray vertical line/restart (various colored vertical lines suddenly appear and then the system restarts) OR BSoD which can be counted on to occur VERY often. The gray vertical line issue has been widely reported by other ATI 5XXX owners. I ruled out this problem by first trying all of the proposed tweaks in that thread, and finally by replacing my Radeon by an old nVidia... the crash persists but manifests itself as only a BSoD and not vertical line crash (I assume the difference here is just the same crash but different expressions of it because of the vid card switch).
Testing:
*Memtest86+ v4.00 ran overnight (12hrs) with 0 errors.
*Prime95 crashes for small FFT's, in place large FFT's, and Blend. At first it gave me the Fatal Error: rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4. I manually set the ram to 400 frequency and 5-5-5-15 with 2.0 volts (the specs recommended). The rounding error goes away but the system still crashes (either lines or BSoD) before 15 minutes pass.
*Since Prime95 crashes quickly, it isn't surprising that all games i've tried also crash.
*All temperatures are normal: GPU never above 65C, CPU never above 39C, mobo never above ~33C.

Hi and welcome

Bunch of BSOD's you have here. they are virtaully identical. they all ppoint to the same thing. This type of crash can be caused by the following.

Memory corruption, Hardware (memory in particular), Installing a faulty or mismatched hardware (especially memory) or a failure after installing it, Device drivers, SCSI/network/BIOS updates needed, Improperly seated cards, Incompatible storage devices, Overclocking, Virus scanner, Backup tool, Bad motherboard, Missing Service Pack

Now since you have rum memtestx86 is it passed, we may have to start looking at the other vaiables.

How much ram do you have?

I would just try prime 95 with only one ram stick it.

you could also run a system file check
type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow.

the next step is to run driver verifier.
Make sure you have a current backup and a win 7 dvd in case you cant get back into the system.
Code:
Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press  Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and  click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click  "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen.  Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the  crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to  crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out.

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier  by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first  page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with  your next post.

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in  Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your  installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point  that you created.
If that doesn't work, post back and we'll have to see about fixing the  registry entry off-line.

UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP (7f)
This means a trap occurred in kernel mode, and it's a trap of a kind
that the kernel isn't allowed to have/catch (bound trap) or that
is always instant death (double fault).  The first number in the
bugcheck params is the number of the trap (8 = double fault, etc)
Consult an Intel x86 family manual to learn more about what these
traps are. Here is a *portion* of those codes:
If kv shows a taskGate
        use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv.
Else if kv shows a trapframe
        use .trap on that value
Else
        .trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken
        (on x86, this will be the ebp that goes with the procedure KiTrap)
Endif
kb will then show the corrected stack.

I would just try prime 95 with only one ram stick it.
I've done this with each stick in each slot on the motherboard (1 stick in first slot... crash, same stick in 2nd slot... crash, etc... then same thing with other stick).

I've also manually set the timings and voltage to the memory in BIOS. I've then tried relaxing the timings, still crashes. All timings set to AUTO, still crashes.

I take that to mean it didn't find anything wrong.

Done done and done.

So i followed all the directions, immediately after setting up verifier I rebooted... but before windows loaded a BSOD occurred.

It then restarted and prompted me if I wanted to run startup repair or start windows normally, I chose start windows normally. It bsod'ed again, so next I chose startup repair. Startup repair ran and successfully did a system restore (in the advanced details somewhere I read that a recent driver installation/update had caused the problem... i take that to mean verifier did its job). Windows then started correctly and I am attaching the minidump.

Well that is a bit better. Your zone alarm caused verifier to puke and die. I was a big zone alarm fan until win 7. had similar problems

If I were you just to test I would uninstall ZAP and see if the problems resolve. You can always re-install or change to a different firewall. the specific file that triggered it is vsdatant.sys. you might want to google that. you will see the problems and its correct removal.

Let us know the results

DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION (c4)
A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught. This is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.

So I started uninstalling zonealarm, and it required a shutdown. Windows starts the shutdown process and seems to get stuck at a screen that says "Windows is shutting down". It stayed there for ~10 minutes. Then all of a sudden that same crash i've been experiencing occurs. That sort of lead me to believe we might have found the issue. Windows restarted and I made sure that vsdatant.sys was not on my system anymore.

I'm running Prime95 and playing a game at the same time, each of which cause the crash separately. So far so good, but it's only been about 15 minutes.

I'll post again in a day or two after running Prime95 for much longer (or if it crashes i'll post again tonight). But even if this isn't the problem, thank you very much for your help and quick replies. I've spent over 3 weeks trying to figure this out.

Hey I learned from this too. Thats why we do this. I happpened to remember several other ZAP problems even with their most current version. I stopped using it a year ago. I now run eset smart security (AV and firewall) works so well I forget its there.
