Random BSODs with random errors/bugchecks in random processes

Q: Random BSODs with random errors/bugchecks in random processes

Hello everyone,

I'm stuck with a very frustrating BSOD problem and from the look of it, it seems like some kind of harware failure. Thing is, I've replaced almost everything but the BSODs refuse to go.

The BSODs are completely random but playing a current generation game (Arkham Asylum, GRID) would guarantee a crash within an hour. Mass Effect, though, runs for many hours at a stretch sometimes...
Analyzing my dumps told me that the crashes were totally random. Page faults, the irq_not_less_than_equal one, the driver_irq_not_less_than_equal one, and the bugcheck codes were pretty random too! Even the faulting processes were anything from ntoskrnl to npfs to my ati driver... just about anything!

I like fixing my own problems, plus I'm impatient. My temperatures were within limits, so I assumed it was the RAM and got myself 2 new corsair 2GB chips just to be sure.
But the BSODs continued...

So it's not the RAM; the motherboard, Graphic card, and the PSU are brand new anyway. The only thing left was the processor, but they almost never go bad... or so I thought.

The real clue was when one of the dumps was found to be corrupt by the debugger! Reading up on that told me that it could be a processor issue. So I borrowed a Xeon 3040 from a friend to test.

Well guess what... The BSODs have almost gone. At least I can work in peace now though the Xeon is painfully slow. I say 'almost' because I DID get one BSOD since I put the Xeon about a week back. My friend tells me that I could have mismatched ram timings, and that my old processor might not be at fault at all!

@Route44: I need help. I want to get rid of the Xeon and get something faster. However, how can I make sure that it was a processor issue in the first place?! Can you help me check my ram timings or whatever else it might be? I still did get ONE BSOD even with the Xeon. What if I get another processor but the BSODs continue?!

I've attached the last few minidumps. The latest file is the one that happened with the Xeon. I'll be so so grateful if someone can figure annything out from these dumps. I have a feeling I've spent a LOT of money on an otherwise easily fixable problem... :blackeye:

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Random BSODs with random errors/bugchecks in random processes

Your dumps came up with errors 0x8E / 0xD1 / 0xA etc. each dump citing different / random process being responsible for instance in question.

Such errors do and can occur due to mismatch RAM timings or incorrect voltage settings. I'll advise you to check specs of your (i.e. timings + voltage) and see whether settings in BIOS are correctly matching these.

Secondly, sometimes even the settings are matching you may still need to fiddle around with voltage settings (incrementally) and see whether that stabilize the system.

Lastly, do stress test your graphic card with OCCT, because one of the dumps came up with 0xc5 as 1st argument, which usually happen due to acceleration issues of graphics. Regards

Three days ago my water cooling failed (got up to 77C while gaming is when I noticed the problem as my CPU should not go over 62C). I decided to install an aftermarket heatsink instead of a new water cooling system ,and add a few more fans just to make sure my whole motherboard was getting plenty of air flow. I installed a Cool Mater Hyper Plus 212 heatsink. I followed the instructions, and looked at a few installation videos on my phone just to be sure. I'm pretty positive everything was done correctly including the thermal paste as my system has not gone over 45C while gaming even playing games on Ultra settings.

I got one BSOD late last night, after about 6 hours of it being on but no other problems after that. Today however I have been having BSOD issues the entire time at random times from just 5 minutes up to 2 and a half hours between BSODs. They have ranged from: NTSF_FILE_SYSTEM, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

I have researched the errors on google all day and tried fixes for each one such as running memory diagnostic tool, deleting the old page info from memory and creating a new one, deleted all of my video drivers and reinstalled them, and I've even opened my case to make sure all my memory and cards are plugged in all the way.

These are the errors that BlueScreenView gave me:

Hey guys, first post on here after about a week of solid research and forehead-to-screen bashing (and a few months of increasingly more frequent issues) trying to figure out what is wrong with this computer.

Here's the specs:

? OS - Vista Home Premium SP2

Since 16 Feb 2013 to today 22 Feb 2013 I've been getting Blue Screens; these appear to be completely random each time with different stop codes and (according to Blue Screen Veiw) are caused by different files. For example;

Caused by ntkrnlpa.exe or atikmdag.exe, or ks,sys, or USBPORT.SYS, or dxgkrnl.sys, or dxgmms1.sys.
At times I'm unable to do anything on the my PC as these are known to happen before Windows logs me in.
Attached the Blue Screen View records of the BSODs (trying to figure out how to open .dmp) up to 21 Feb 2013. Most recently it was the ks.sys that caused the BSOD but no file was created nor does it appear in Blue Screen View. I know what these files are rooted to but neither Windows Update nor any driver update has solved the issue hence my post here.

Activity on the PC doesn't seem to be a factor as the BSODs have occurred while I've been playing games, watching DVDs, listening to MP3s, browsing the web, editing pictures on the PC... I can do anything and at some point a BSOD is guaranteed to happen. They also occur randomly, as yesterday (21 Feb 2013) I was able to play games until 23:00 and then I was unable to log back into Windows because of back to back BSODs while the day before I was unable to do much because of the frequency of the BSODs.

I've installed and re-installed a dozen times over and run the updates and done disk scans and defrags and virus scans and run Windows System Repair and nothing has helped. I'm at my wits end here and... Read more

Hi folks,

Thought I may need to start a new thread, I noticed other threads have similar issues to what I'm seeing and didn't want to confuse by re-posting in the same thread.

I have Windows 7 Enterprise and just started having many random windows blue screens. I think it started as soon as I tried to run a trainer for a game Company of Heroes, since McAfee said it was a trojan and I tried to restore it after seeing online by other folks that the file was legit.

Anyway, since then I think, i started to see many BSoDs, not always the same BSoD message and they would occur during normal windows usage, a few times in Safe mode with networking. But most of the time, usually within 5 to 30min of running normally.

Anyways, I ran the McAfee virusscan and it found a few viruses, also ran spybot and malware bytes, and Stinger. I ran them from safe mode and was able to clean out the affected files.

I still see fewer BSoDs, but mainly now my google chrome browser won't work. I've tried uninstall/reinstall and every time I load it, it never works. sometimes freezes and I have to do a hard power off/on on my laptop. I have a lenovo w510.

Other problems is that my windows randomly freezes. Also, so far I can use Internet Explorer and Firefox, not able to install Opera. But when using Firefox or IE, i sometimes get random redirects.

I have ran hijackthis and can provide the log file. I can also provide the windows minidump files.

Have been getting random BSODs over the last week or so. I'm not sure of the reasoning, however I suspect it may be gaming related.

You have a lot of software running that is probably not necessary. Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup and only have avast! set to run on startup and in services.

Regarding avast!, your current installation may be corrupted or old; avast! was blamed in a few of your crashes. I would suggest uninstalling with the avast! uninstall utility, downloading a fresh, up to date copy, and then installing the fresh copy. If that does not resolve the avast! related crashes, I may ask you to remove it with the avast! uninstall utility and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows to test.
Post a screenshot of what you have in device manager under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers (Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager)
Many of your crashes were DirectX/graphics card related. DirectX comes installed with Windows, so this may indicate Windows corruption. It may also be that you have corrupted drivers or a graphics card hardware problem.
If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Check Windows for corruption. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.

For some reason, my last post here regarding this issue was deleted after ~2 days without warning or response from anyone, so here I am again now that I can view this section once more.

For the past week or so now, my PC has been randomly BSODing at seemingly random times.. mostly when gaming. Before the BSODs started happening, I believe a day or so, Windows removed some orphaned files from the drive before starting. I don't know if this has anything to do with what's going on or not.

When gaming, more often than not I'll suffer from crashes due to access violations; the errors stating that the memory couldn't be read. From this point, either I get a BSOD very shortly after, or immediately when doing something like checking the computer properties (to see perhaps if Windows had suddenly decided one of my sticks of RAM was bad and displayed as: "XGB of RAM (XGB usable).").

At this point in this PC's life, I'm chalking it up to probably failing hardware. I recently had to disable Intel's SpeedStep on this processor, as I was having issues where it wouldn't initialize like it should and clock my CPU up to load-levels (thus leaving the system and anything I did with it a tad laggy). Until that point, it had been enabled since I built this PC and I had no problems with it whatsoever.

As far as temperatures and voltages are concerned, all are well. I monitor temps as closely as I can, and I'm not overclocking. Power from my PSU is all normal.

The only drivers I've m... Read more

A:Random BSODs during random tasks, numerous BCCodes.

Your .zip file doesn't contain any of the .dmp files required to analyse the BSOD/s.

Please follow this:
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Now follow this:
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier will cause your computer to run very sluggishly - this is normal. What it is trying to do is force your system to BSOD and isolate the offending driver/s. When it does, reboot, disable driver verifier, reboot as normal and upload the new dmp file/s here.

I recommend creating a system restore point before turning on driver verifier:
System Restore Point - Create

If your system fails to boot to desktop once driver verifier is enabled, turn it off by booting into Safe Mode:
Safe Mode

Once you get a new BSOD when running Driver Verifier, follow this:

1. Download the DM Log Collector application to your desktop by clicking the link below

2. Run it by double-clicking the icon on your desktop, and follow the prompts.
3. Locate the .ZIP file that is created on your desktop, and upload it here in your next reply.

Hi all, first off, thanks for reading this.

Basically, my current build is about 2-3 years old, the newest thing being my PSU (which I replaced after several issues with the GPU drivers constantly crashing, turns out it wasn't the power anyway...)

For the past few weeks, I've been having issues with it. At one point, the computer refused to start (it would power up but the k/b and mouse lights wouldn't turn on), I seem to have solved it by moving my RAM (slot 3 looks to be buggered).

I kept on getting BSODs, at random times and different messages. I could be playing, watching a movie, or even letting it sit idle, and it'd BSOD. Temps for both the CPU and GPU are fine, GPU hits about 70 and CPU tops off at roughly 40C (when stress testing).

I tried running Prime 95 + Furmark, no crash funnily enough. Done the RAM tests, 7 passes on both sticks, no issues.

The error messages I've gotten are, Bad_Pool_Header, Memory Management, System Service Exception. The most frequent one is the Memory Management one.

I'm at my wit's end here. I've updated my Mobo drivers, GPU, etc. I'm hoping that someone might be able to make heads or tails of the problem and give me an idea of what to do.

Hey all,

My husband's computer is on the fritz. I can -fix- most issues (software or hardware), but I'm horrible at diagnosing. I have attached the requested zip file containing the PERFMON output and jcgriff2 collection. There are a few dump files from months ago in there, but you can see most of them are from this month.

The BSODs happen at completely random times. A few times have been while playing a game, sometimes when just browsing on Firefox, and once it blue screened while I was just shutting it down.

I have done the following so far:
- Ran checkdisk
- Ran a virus/spyware scan using AVG
- Ran the Windows diagnostic, it didn't find any errors (not very reliable, I know)
- Installed new NVIDIA drivers (GeForce 9500 GT)
- Pulled out and reseated all 4 RAM cards (6GB total - 2x1GB 2x2GB), checked power connections, video card seating, etc.

I did NOT run Memtest86 yet, I haven't had a chance to.

System info:
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)
The mobo, CPU, some RAM, and video card are from Dec 2008. PSU (700W) from May 2009. Hard drive from Aug 2009. Originally had XP Pro installed, wiped the drive completely and installed Windows 7 in June 2010.

Any help would be appreciated, I've tried looking at the dump files using Blue Screen View but I just really don't know what to look for.

Thank you!

I recently built a new desktop PC running a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit retail version (see my system specs). All hardware was purchased new, and all software installed were fresh installs. All Windows Updates were applied successfully, including SP1. I have also updated all drivers using manufacturer supplied drivers online as well as through Windows Update. BIOS is flashed to latest manufacturer version, and RAM timings were tightened to rated specs (default 9-9-9-24 at 1.5V, rated for 7-7-7-21 at 1.5V).

After using my system for a day or two, I started getting frequent Firefox application crashes (several times a day). These manifested themselves by abruptly exiting out of Firefox and bringing up the Crash Report manager; no freezing up or unresponsiveness of any sort was involved. I am using Firefox 4 with no third-party add-ons except for AdBlock Plus. I also received several BSOD's (three, I believe), one of which is MEMORY_MANAGEMENT (0x1A). The BSOD's occurred randomly while browsing or doing other tasks, and did not appear to be triggered by any given event. My uTorrent application also crashed once not long after a Firefox crash, but this was a one-time event.

I have run memtest86+ for one pass on each of my sticks of ram individually, and 5+ passes on the two sticks together, with no errors. This is my first time building a PC, and I have previously only used Windows 7 32-bit. Since all of the hardware is new, I am wondering whether there could be ... Read more

Hello

3 months ago I bought an XPS M1530 laptop. It's great, except that I get BSODs 2 times a week or more. I first thought it was a software error, but it is more likely a hardware error since it occurs on xp and vista with official drivers.

I get random BSODs (0x000000A, 0x0000008E, 0x000000D1, ...) reffering to different system files (sthda.sys, USBport.sys, video driver, ...) at random times. I have several dump files. Is it possible to upload them on this forum and have someone have a look at them?

Might this be a HDD error? I'm having my HDD replaced soon, since it makes strange noices. I checked my memory with memtest. Once it found an error, but since it was an old version I tried it with the latest version of Memtest; since then, no errors have been found.

I suspect it to be: 1) HDD, 2) Memory, 3) Mobo

Any help would be appreciated!

Hey folks,
I'm working on my cousin's computer which I just put together for him the other week. Since he took it home, it has been the victim of repeated blue screens and application failures. Since the computer was basically brand new, and there was no risk of losing any files, I first reinstalled Windows.

The PC continued to blue screen, leading me to eventually run the memory checker which found several issues. After trial and error, I determined that one of the 4gb sticks was bad, and removed it.

The PC was fine for about three hours while I installed updates, but began to randomly quit Firefox. This was followed by several new blue screens. Its worth noting that i've also run check disk, as well as another round of the memory checker.

At this point i'm stumped. I can't recreate the blue screens on a consistent basis, and it seems that each time one happens, there is a different reason and error code associated with it.

Attached in the zip file are the dmp files and health report. The one error present in the report is my flash drive, which was not inserted while the blue screens were occurring.

Any help with this would be great. Thanks

Just realized I didn't post system specs:

AMD Athlon II x3 @ 3.3 ghz

Hi,
My laptop suffers from random BSOD's errors. Sometimes, when i push power on button, nothing happens. Screen remains black, you can hear hdd&fan motion, but that's all.

Greetings!

I've recently built a new PC,all components are brand new except for the display adapter,and I've been getting BSODs from the very beginning - 0x24,0xa - and other ones as well. I have an SSD and two HDDs,the first thing I did was runnin CHKDSK on them,no errors. Then I ran memtest86,which gave me lots of errors, tried changing BIOS RAM settings from AUTO to 1,5V - 1866MHz - 10-11-10-30 (these are the specs provided by the manufacturer) - memtest still gives me errors,even with single modules. Should I RMA them? Can I be 100% sure that the memory is the one at fault?
Here's a shot of my memtest results with both of the memories in their sockets,and two minidump files of the BSODs since the last OS install:

Counterfeit installations such as yours contain heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analyzing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.

A driver tried to access an address that is pageable (or that is completely invalid) while the IRQL was too high. This bug check is usually caused by drivers that have used improper addresses.

Hello, welcome to SevenForums!

I have taken a look at your provided dump files. There are tons of memory management and memory corruption errors. Before we continue, if any of your hardware is overclocked, PLEASE reset your clocks to stock for diagnostic purposes.

First off, before we continue onto memory.... in your drivers list I noticed you have sptd.sys listed, which is the driver for Daemon Tools. Please uninstall Daemon Tools from your system as it's known to cause many issues in the Windows 7 environment. Once you've done so, restart and then run DuplexSecure's sptd uninstaller to fully remove sptd.sys from your system. After you've done so, restart again.

Next, tons and tons of memory management and memory corruption errors as I've said earlier. Please read the following thread to download and install Memtest to test your memory for any bad sticks.

I was overclocking my A64 3500+ for a while, then I decided to run stock again. After that I started getting random BSODs a bit after I booted up (up to 20 mins after). If I don't BSOD, my computer seems to run stable for long periods easily. I think it may have something to do with my memory. Sometimes when I BSOD, my computer won't boot back up giving me a "Error loading into OS" error. In this case I usually turn off the power to my PSU and I can reboot into Windows normally. In the event viewer I randomly get this sometimes, it seems that my cables are secure though. "The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk1\D."

Your Linksys AE1000 is a USB wireless device. Win7 doesn't like these devices and with older drivers they are a known cause of BSOD's. Here's my rant on them:





Quote:
I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Win7 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

Hi Hiray.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Re-seat the SATA and power cable. Make it sure that there is no loose connection and no bent/broken pins. If possible, change the SATA cable, and apply the cable in another unused SATA port on the motherboard.

Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
** As you are using AHCI storage controller, Seatools for DOS will not be able to detect a AHCI disc. So Boot into the BIOS, set the storage controller mode to IDE/SATA before running the test.When the test is done, Boot into the BIOS again and set the controller mode back to AHCI, otherwise windows will refuse to boot.

Let us know the results. The test may take long on a 750 GB HDD. If it finds any problem, let at attempt to repair those. If it repairs, run the short test then, to make it sure that the HDD is properly repaired.

A:Random BSOD's and even more random stop errors

When did you buy this TriGem computer, and have you contacted them.
I worry about any computer built by TriGem as they are closely affiliated with the often failing eMachines models... and often failing hard drive failures.
Their motherboards go bad as they age and curl...
What you describe is typical of the motherboard problems.
In many cases, Tri-Gem makes the motherboards designed by Intel and others, in their own factory under license to the original manufacturer.
Of these "licensed" boards, we have found failure rates as high as 65%.
Document all contact efforts.
I would immediately keep documentation on all contacts, and with the seller.

Hi

I've been researching the root of my BSODs for what seems like forever and I feel like I'm banging my head against a brick wall.

I'm running an overclocked system, and sporadically receive BSODs which are either pagefault errors or PFN corrupt errors.

I've tried running the driver verification tool, but it would BSOD while booting windows - however I do have a crash dump from that, but haven't the ability to read it yet.

I ran the windows memory checker utility which came up clean. I haven't run memtest yet - I don't have a writeable disc or USB drive to hand to be able to create the boot disc.

I've included crash reports for your browsing pleasure.

The BSODs often happen when windows is shutting down, but that is the only common thread - other crashes are seemingly random, anything from browsing the web on chrome or in the middle of a Battlefield 3 session.

Any and all help will be gratefully accepted, and if I need to provide any more details then of course I will.

Thanks

A:Random BSODS - sporadic. Often Page Fault errors

Hi -

Overclocking can cause all sorts of problems. If you are overclocking your system, please return all overclocked components to their stock speeds. If the BSOD's are found not to be caused by the overclock, you can re-overclock the components once we have finished the diagnostics.

Please upload your msinfo32.nfo file. To get this: Start Menu -> Type msinfo32 into the Search programs and files box -> When it opens, go to File, Save -> Save as msinfo32.nfo and save in a place you will remember -> Let it finish the process of gathering and saving the system info -> Right click the .nfo file, click send to compressed (zipped) folder -> Upload the .zip file here.

Please upload your msinfo32.txt file.

Hi there,

I have recently been having multiple problems with my computer. According to the ?reliability monitor? (screenshots attached), I have had multiple blue screens and ?Unexpected Windows shutdowns?. However, unless I keep missing the blue screens, I have not seen any of them. I find this very strange as I am sure that I would have noticed if my computer had blue screened! Also, while looking through the reliability monitor, I can see that every couple of days I am having ?Hardware Errors?. Again, I have not witnessed any errors or unusual things happening to my computer. Another issue is that multiple programs and apps ?stop working? every day, these errors I do witness.

Do you think that these issues are related or caused by hardware? So far I have updated all drivers and tested the ram with memtest86+ (and got 8 passes). I have attached the BSOD log files and screenshots of reliability monitor.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Random unwitnessed BSODs and Hardware Errors in reliability monitor

The latest dumpfile is a xA0 internal power error.
Often with this kind of error are hibernation problems and storage drivers involved.

Please update your Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver your driver is from 2014 from here http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...px?pid=5007#dl

Volume Serial Number CA5D3C54

My problem is that , for the last two months or so, a lot of BSODs have been appearing. At first, they only appeared when I was trying to shut down my computer. The most frequent stop error causing the BSODs was STOP ERROR 0X0000024, it said something about some problem with the ntfs.sys file and that I should run chkdsk. I did indeed run chkdsk and it said that 'the volume is clean' (which I interpret as my hard drive working just fine ).

However, that hasn't been the only stop error connected to the BSODs, some of the other BSODs were concernin stop errors 0x000007E, and 0X000003B.

At first BSODs would appear sometimes when trying to shut my computer down, but now, it's become totally random. Sometimes I'm just listening to music and the computer makes this awful noise and the BSODs appear. Sometimes I just leave it on and ... Read more

Hi alejando and welcome to SF

Let's check the file system first: open an administrative command prompt (Start, typi in CMD, rightclick on the icon, run as Administrator.)
In that black window you type
chkdsk c: /f /x
If that doesn't find/fix anything, follow this tutorial to check your RAM

That temperature spike definitely needs attention. If you can get to the heatsink, blow it out with some canned air.

Hello everyone and thank you for taking the time to read a newbie's post.

Anyways, I'm having a really frustrating problem.

Symptoms:
- Random BSODs happening at random time intervals from bootup
Example: Bootup, and after 5 minutes, BSOD. Bootup again, and
after 30 minutes, BSOD.
- BSODS are variety of errors not just one.

Side Note:
- Been running exact same build of windows 7 x64 from august 2009 till
November 2009. At around the 3rd, I did a clean install using the exact same
disc, drivers, etc. Problems started after my clean install.

Actions Taken:
- Ran Windows Memory Diagnostic on all memory with no errors
- Ran Windows Memory Diagnostic on each memory DIMM individually, and no errors
- Ran SeaGate Seatools and my hard drive passed
- Reinstalled Windows XP, Vista, and 7 version of my wireless usb adapter and problem continued
- Removed NVIDIA drivers for my 9600GT and using the default ones, problem still remained
- Problem still continues in Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Networking

- Did another clean install of windows 7 using again the same disc and drivers etc as from the time it worked, still nothing.

- on another post i read to run VERIFIER /FLAG 1 /ALL or something similar in command prompt. The last two minudumps are after I ran that and rebooted.

--------

The minidumps since the last clean install are included.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Roik

For the last few months I have been having strange stop errors. First they only appeared a few minutes after I started my computer for the first time that day, with many different error codes. After a couple of months of trying different solutions, testing my RAM, installing drivers, flashing BIOS etc. I figured it might be one of my hard drives acting up, and I removed my oldest couple. Since then my computer has been working fine, but today I had two BSODs in a row, with "The video memory manager has encountered a fatal error" and "fltmgr.sys".

Some other random error codes I've encountered:
Memory management
Page fault in non paged area
Bad pool caller
Driver irql not less than or equal

Also, most of the times my BSOD error dump stops at 95, and claims to be completed, but I don't receive a minidump file like when it reaches 100. Sometimes it keeps retrying, and stopping at 95.

I got 2 bsod/day when i'm playing, when i'm staring at my monitor or even when i'm sleeping with random error code like 0x1e, 0x24, 0x3b, 0x4a or 0xa
I read a lot of forum like this one of people having similar problem and most of the time people were talking about testing the ram so I ran mdsched.exe last night but no error has been found
They also talk about using the windows debuging tool so I tried to download it but even the debuger downloader is buged!

Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial "If you have errors"
Test the RAM with Memtest86+ for at least 7-10 passes. It may take up to 22 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.




When done with the testing procedure take a picture and upload it here.

I've been getting frequent bluescreens lately at random moments. These bluescreens give different error messages each time.
A few of these are:
"page fault in non paged area"
"Memory management"
"interupt exception not handled"
"tcpip.sys"
"atikmdag.sys"
"win32k.sys"

I suspect my RAM for being the problem. I've tested it with memtest86 + multiple times. At first the test showed an error while testing all the modules (4x2 GB) but when i tested each module on its own the test showed no errors. I also tested each slot on my mainboard, which didn't gave any errors either. After testing the full 8 GB again, the error doesn't show up.

I always used only 4 GB but added an additional 4 GB of the same memory 2 months ago.

I wonder if the bluescreens might be because of a wrong BIOS configuration. Because i can't realy find out what slot or RAM module is broken.

anyway, here are my system specs:
