Windows 7: FREQUENT BSoD

17 Aug 2010   #101

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

I need to answer a question you asked:
do i need to disable verifier when changing drivers?
Yes, Turn driver verifier off when uninstalling/installing drivers.

Please follow Jonathan's advice above and post back with the results.

windows 7 x64

have tested ram for 7 paasses per stick and 7 with both
have tested harddrives suing seatools
will try prime95

last night i couldnt even keep it running for long enough to do much so gave up, will try tomorrow, have a few more dumps to post, a few different ones ive not had before

if the ram is faulty should i be attempting to flash the bios? can it stuff out part way through flashing?

I didnt disable driver verifier when installing hte chipset driver, probably wy i have an error now and got BSoDs part way through trying to install, prety sure at this point it isnt software related

Windows 7 Professional x64

Did Memtest86 pick up any errors as all?

If you have a suspected RAM problem, I would not update the BIOS. Flashing the BIOS is a somewhat riskier procedure than most, due to the high damages that can be done if it fails.

Many people will not update their BIOS unless they are having problems. I don't recommend it at this point.

I agree with Jonathan. Personally, I would not flash the bios through Windows. I would flash it from the BIOS following the instructions on your BIOS site. But I don't think you need to flash it at this point.

Anyone got any ideas?

windows 7 x64

antec 750w i think, have swapped it with a friends and the problem presists
i would use the flash utility in the BIOS to do it, i had to flash it back to the version its on through a bootable usb drive because the version i upgraded to didnt support my processor and ran it at 800mhz so im thinking it may be the BIOS but not certian

Memory test came back fine
Have tested hard drives, no problems found
Have swapped vid card and problem remains

Will however test the cpu if it can run long enough for me to do anything tonight its getting realy realy bad
