Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Hi everyone,

I've been getting BSODs recently on my desktop. They've all been the same code - as above. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

I've run Memtest86+ (about 6 hours, 4 passes) and Windows Memory Diagnostic and have not found any errors in my memory.

Attached are my minidumps. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

These are still pointing to memory corruption.

If you are overclocking-stop

I would continue testing with memtestx86 qnd run a system file check
(type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow)

It might also be a heat, or power supply issue. I would download cpu-z, and gpu-z (both free) to keep an eye on the temps

You might also want to find out how rum power your video card needs and how much the psu can supply to the video rail.

This bugcheck is generated when the kernel detects that critical kernel code or
data have been corrupted. There are generally three causes for a corruption:
1) A driver has inadvertently or deliberately modified critical kernel code
 or data. See
2) A developer attempted to set a normal kernel breakpoint using a kernel
 debugger that was not attached when the system was booted. Normal breakpoints,
 "bp", can only be set if the debugger is attached at boot time. Hardware
 breakpoints, "ba", can be set at any time.
3) A hardware corruption occurred, e.g. failing RAM holding kernel code or data.

Thanks for the quick replies.

Anyway, everything is running at stock speed - nothing is overclocked.

I ran memtestx86 for another 10 passes. No errors have come up. Also ran the system file check and no problems were found. The RAM is Corsair DDR3-1333 (PC3-10600) (2x2gb).

Current temperatures are (at idling)
AMD Phenom II X4 965: 31 degrees Celsius
Radeon 5770: 30.5 degrees Celsius

At load
AMD Phenom II X4 965: 51 degrees
Radeon 5770: 77 degrees (Furmark)

So I don't think heat is the cause..especially since I can stress test my computer without any difficulty. Most of the Blue screens have occurred with minimal system load (e.g. MS Word, Foobar2000, Windows Live Messenger and Mozilla Firefox running).

The power supply is a Zalman ZM600-HP 600W ATX. This can supply 12VDC to the GPU. I'm not sure how to find out how much the GPU needs but I think that is enough?

Also, is it possibly a driver issue? I was using a Netgear WG111v2 and this appears to have non-Windows 7 compatible drivers (which I just realised). Seems like a shot in the dark though, but I'm running my desktop cut off from the net to see if it is the problem.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Ok hate to bring up my old thread, but yeah. The crashes stopped for a month, then started going haywire.

Fortunately, I have managed to narrow the cause of the problem down:

When I removed one of the RAM VS2GB1333D3 chips, the crashing stopped. Entire system was stable.

I have 2 x 2gb in my GA-MA770T-UD3P Rev 1.1 motherboard. The RAM is not listed on the compatible RAM list on Gigabyte's website. I have tested the RAM individually in slot 1 and dual channel in slot 1 and 2 (odd that it is not slot 1 and 3, but the motherboard is colour coded and the manual explicitly states this.)

Testing the memory in 1 and 2 simultaneously or 3 and 4 simultaneously results in a 0x109 stop error (same as before).

Could this be a case of incompatibility with my motherboard, a RAM issue, or a motherboard issue? I do not have any extra DDR3 ram to test this so any help would be greatly appreciated.
