Windows 7: Multiple BSOD's

I haven't the slightest idea if this makes a difference or not.

I put all 6 sticks back in and BSOD'd like usual.

So, knowing it had to be some form of memory error, I started playing with my video cards.

Initially, I had my monitor plugged into the #2 card in SLI and I had my #1 card dedicated to PhysX. I simply changed it to let nVidia choose which card was dedicated to PhysX. Immediately it switched dedicated PhysX to the #2 slot. So, I put my monitor on the #1 card. I've rebooted several times since then and I haven't gotten a BSOD. Probably a coincidence, but maybe a step in the right direction??

That may well be the problem... Monitor it for a few days and post any new .dmp files if your computer crashes again..

Build an SLI PC - Certified SLI-Ready Power Supplies

My PSU is a HEC Zephyr 1000CM

Notice that it isn't on the list for certified PSU's for Dual GTX 480's.

Or is the Zephyr 1000CM part of the Cougar series?

False alarm, I'm still peppered in BSOD's


Also, I cannot do the HD diagnostic because every time I go to the boot sequence in BIOS to set my optical drive first, BIOS locks up. I've seen a lot of people with this complaint regarding the x58 pro-e

I suggest looking for a BIOS update, to fix the freezing.

Alright, update time.


I have attempted running the computer with only one video card, still got BSOD'd. So, we can probably eliminate my power supply not being able to maintain my dual GTX 480's as a potential cause.

Another point of information to reiterate: The machine ran flawlessly for 7 days on Windows XP 64bit - but the fact of the matter is, I bought Windows 7 and I want it to work.


Here are a few things to note, though.

My BSOD's always occur during the initial Windows boot or immediately after seeing my desktop. On rare occasions, my desktop will not look like the modern Windows 7 look, it will load looking like the ancient Windows Classic style. My computer ALWAYS blue screens shortly after loading if it looks like that.

Removing MSE did, in fact, eliminate some problems. I have had to endure less BSOD's, though they are still present.

The most peculiar aspect is this though. The BSOD issue occurs mostly when booting from a completely cold computer, and by cold, I mean thermally. If the computer has been running for some time, I can shut it down and boot it up with no problems; however, I can go to bed and get up the next day and it will crash to blue several times before I can even see my desktop.


Additionally, I discovered several kernel errors being created by Microsoft Security Essentials. I removed it and reinstalled Windows 7, and now all my blue screens are related solely to ntfs/device driver issues.

Jonathan, the BIOS update required Windows XP, so when we loaded XP onto a hard drive we loaded the BIOS update. I don't suppose THAT is in any way related to the issue is it?

Please go find bios update as Jonathan King suggested, one of the stop code in these new dump are potentially caused by BIOS.
Quote:
STOP 0x0000007E: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

Usual causes: Insufficient disk space, Device driver, Video card, BIOS, Breakpoint with no debugger attached, Hardware incompatibility, Faulty system service, Memory, 3rd party remote control,

In looking through your drivers, I see that you have AVG anti virus installed. AVG is known to cause BSOD, on some systems. I suggest that you uninstall it while trouble shooting using the uninstall tool > Info > Tool (32bit) - Tool (64 bit). If you have AVG Identity Protection installed, uninstall it also >Info > Tool. I recommend that you install MSE and make sure Windows Firewall is turned on.

It sounds like a RAM problem to me. Try booting up Memtest first thing in the morning, after the computer is been off.

See if there are errors.

ttran, I'm not sure if you didn't see my previous post, but MSE had been causing the majority of my BSOD's, that's why I removed it and added AVG. So, I could remove AVG, but adding MSE is going to nothing more than cause trouble.

I'll attempt memtest again as soon as I can.
