Windows 7: Several BSOD while gaming/watching videos

Several BSOD while gaming/watching videos

Hi, I am using Windows 7 64 Bit, and am getting several BSOD only while gaming/watching videos. I have caught the name of 2 BSOD's, which are BAD_POOL_CALLER, and PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGED AREA. I have done some research and some people found out that it was faulty RAM. I did the test MemTest86+ and got 1 error. (Failing Address: 000444aad80 , GOOD: b7895a6d, BAD: b5895a6d, ERR Bits: 02000000, Count:1,Amount: 1092.6MB)
I have two sticks of 2GB DDR3 1600 MHz RAM. I have a clean install of Windows 7, all hardware is updated to the latest drivers. No virus protection at all. Very minimal programs installed on my computer. If anyone has any info as to why this is happening , please respond. Thank you.

(EDIT: Uploaded minidump, 2 files of the 2 BSOD's so you guys can help me out) Thanks.

Well, it could be many things, but you already said it's bad RAM...so...have you tried new RAM sticks?

Also, you might want to get on that Anti-Virus. No one is immune.

I do not know if it is the RAM or not, I was saying that other people have found that these BSOD have come up because of faulty RAM. My story might be a different case, I just wanted to come here and ask the pros before I RMA my RAM, because I do not have any other ram sticks.

Well, it could be graphics card drivers, but it's more likely that if there's an error with the RAM, that it's the RAM. Try upgrading/uninstalling and reinstalling your graphical drivers.

Hi -

The bugchecks on the 2 kernel dumps -

0xc2 (0x7,,,) = thread attempted to free memory already freed

0x50 = invalid memory referenced

A DirectX component driver was named probable cause in 0xc2; NT Kernel (default) named in 0x50.

A few items to do -

1. Remove Daemon Tools/ Alcohol 120

2. Update your Realtek NIC -
Code:
Rt64win7.sys Fri May 22 10:52:30 2009 (4A16BC2E)
Check Device Manager for Realtek device info -
START | devmgmt.msc

Realtek --> Realtek


3. These drivers need to be updated or removed -
Code:
ctgame.sys   Tue Apr 06 20:42:49 2004 (40734E89) - Creative Technology - Creative Game Port Enumerator Driver
 
V0230Vfx.sys Fri May 05 02:14:03 2006 (445AED2B) - EyePower Games Pte. Ltd.
V0230VID.sys Thu Sep 28 21:19:21 2006 (451C7499) - EyePower Games Pte. Ltd.

EDIT: Did not see you there John. Only thing I have to add is this:

The fact that DirectX is mentioned means it would be good for you to update your graphics drivers.

I went to download the ATI Drivers and noticed that they just put a new update today. It is mainly for bug fixes while using Adobe Flash Player 10.1. This is where I usually crash is when I am watching youtube videos with Adobe Flash Player. I am still worried about the RAM error, will do another memtest and come back with results in the morning.
