Windows 7: Been having BSOD issues, like many on here.

Alright paging was set at 4093mb. I have 4g of RAM so i have set it appropriately (4160mb for both min and max), and i only have the options none, small memory dump , and kernel and it is set to kernel already.

Enabling the driver verifyer asap, also thought it should be known i have ran a 15 hour memtest on the RAM so i think it should be ok.

The page file should be 3x RAM. For you, that is 12GB.

It is best to let Windows manage the page file automatically. It knows best what to do, unlike the XP days.

Yeah, except it creates a MIN value that is less than RAM, which will cause corrupt dump files to be created if the paging file has not been increased to be larger than RAM when the box crashes, hence why you set it manually when actually trying to get a dump. Eternal, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl in your registry, and change the CrashDumpEnabled value to 1 and reboot. This will set it to complete, even though the UI will not reflect the change (and don't go into the UI again, or you'll set it back ). Reboot, as per previously recommended, for it to take effect.

Ok, crashed repeatedly before windows even finished loading the logon screen. Id turned on driver verifier and then reverted the paging file back to system managed, as soon as i changed that key in the reg and restarted it crashed upon loading windows. (currently on the same comp just system restored it)

Still a minidump, but more data. There's an Iop call for the I/O request, and an active IRP - unfortunately, because it's still a minidump, I can't give you more than that.

alright after making sure paging file was set and the complete dump is set im awaiting for it to crash again. Yet i also found a memory dump file that is 358mb, so it is to large to upload here anyway.

Should i re-enable the verifier?

At this point, if you're stable and set for a complete dump, yes.

Alright, i turned on the verifier (wish i could tell if it was really on but it did tell me to restart for changes to take effect) upon restarting no crashes yet, all the settings you have told me are in place and im waiting for the crash currently (if it happens) where exactly might it (them dmp file) be located when it happens?
%systemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP? would that be the proper file it would create under the systemroot folder?

Yes, that is correct.

I already have that dmp file zipped (found one there from the last time it crashed) it is to big to send through here though 356mb. unless it could be just a kernel and not a complete since i did not have that setting changed just yet.
