Need Help With ntoskrnl.exe BSODs!

Hi folks,

Within the past month, I've been getting BSOD that reference to ntoskrnl.exe. It happens when I do anything using video, ie., watching DVDs, playing BFBC2, or even online flash games.

I bought this machine about 2 months ago and installed windows 7 onto it myself and it was running fine up until about a month ago. All drivers are up to date.
Today, I tried reinstalling Windows and updating drivers but the problem did not get alleviated.

Some basic specs on my machine:
-AMD Quad Core 3.2GHz CPU
-NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 1GB Graphics Card
-2x 2GB Corsair RAM

I'll attach the minidump for the BSOD since I had reinstalled Windows 7

Any help would be awesome!

This crash was caused by memory management. I would download memtestx86 and run it for 5 passes.

let us know if you need help

Thanks I'll run MemTest86 right away.

Just off sight, does it look like a hardware problem? or is it too soon to tell?

Here is a result-
WallTime is about 48 minutes

Error Confidence Value: 109
Lowest Error Address: 0000080050 - 8.0MB
Highest Error Address: 000e298ea61 - 3625.8MB
Bits in Error - Total: 32 Min: 1 Max: 18 Avg: 13
Max Contiguous Errors: 1
ECC Correctable Errors:
Errors per Memory Slot: 0:[Number Rising]
1:8


Test 8 seems to be on some strange endless loop. The Errors column keeps going from 0 to 32767, reseting and doing it again and again. Also, the Errors per Memory Slot (where I mentioned a Number Rising) does not stop rising.
Anyway, I have no idea what this means.

Hi -

Update these drivers - the 3rd (Via) may be the most recent they have -
Code:
nvhda64v.sys Fri Aug 21 16:23:50 2009 (4A8F0256) - NVIDIA HDMI Audio Device (USB Headphones?)
 
Rt64win7.sys Thu Feb 26 04:04:13 2009 (49A65B0D) - Realtek Ethernet
 
viahduaa.sys Mon Aug 17 07:20:43 2009 (4A893D0B) - Via audio
Relatek drivers --> Realtek

NVIDIA drivers --> Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

Via drivers --> VIA Drivers Download - VIA Technologies, Inc.

What is plugged into USB? Headphones using NVIDIA HDMI by any chance?

Regards. . .

Hi,

I am actually using a SHARP TV as monitor via HDMI on my graphics card. I don't have headphones using NVIDIA HDMI in the USB (or at all). All that's in my USB is a wireless mouse.

Also I'm not entirely sure which drivers to download for VIA and Realtek.

Thanks for the reply and the help
