Multiple random BSOD and Kernel-Power Errors

Q: Multiple random BSOD and Kernel-Power Errors

About 2 months ago I started getting daily BSOD and black screen reboots. At the time I was running Win10 and they started happening right after a windows update and video driver update. Some days the computer would reboot 3-4 times during the day.

I rolled back my video driver to latest stable, uninstalled the latest windows updates with no change.

I use computer daily for my work and had to do something quickly, so I order a 2nd SSD and installed a fresh copy on Win7x64 Ultimate w/sp1. I thought things were fixed as I went nearly 7 days before a reboot happened again.

Some times I get a BSOD, sometimes screen just goes black and system reboots. I lost several BSOD as my computer was not saving the .dmp files. Searched forums and made changes and last BSOD on 3/1 save a BAD_POOL_HEADER mini.dmp.

I've had 6 black screen reboots without BSOD or dump file since then, only record is the Kernel-Power in event log. Most happen during normal computer usage, sometimes idle with audio streaming.

I've run the following with no errors or reboots.

memtest86+ for 18+ hours
BurnInTest V8.1
FurMark

I am running BOINC in the background and have tried disabling and still get reboots. CPU / GPU temps are consistently 45-50c.

I am running default BIOS settings for both CPU and ram with no overclocking. I updated to latest BIOS at the same time as the clean install.

Any help with solving this would be appreciated.

I've attached output from DM Log Collector to this post.

I have my original SSD with the Win10 install that was an upgrade from Win7 that I can boot to to run the DM Log Collector as well if this helps as it has a least one minidump as well and shows how frequently the Kernel power errors were occurring.

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.)

Hi,

I got this computer about 2 weeks ago

Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.1
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional , 32 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7500 @ 2.93GHz, x64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10

Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd., G41MT-ES2L, x.x,
Antivirus: ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4.2, Updated and Enabled

The power went off when I was installing windows and it wouldn't install, initially I had 4Mb RAM and took 2Mb out and the install worked OK. However since then I have had multiple problems with the computer suddenly turning itself off. Sometimes this has been due to a genuine power cut, but other times there has been nothing obvious. First I thought it might be a problem with the UPS (as you may guess our electric is unreliable) at it looked like the only time it was happening was genuine power cuts. However it has still happened without a couple of times as well - once preceded by a BSOD with something like 'page/unpage'. WHen I look at the event viewer these events are always described as kernel power 41 - I ran a performance check and a dskchk which were fine

Please could anyone help!?

THis is a bran new machine and I' like to get it better than this

Sorry Total noob here.

My system started acting funny which culminated into this randoms shutdowns. It started a month ago after playing some games. I was playing GhostRecon: Future Soldier.

I tried to find info materials as to how to find a fix for my Kernel Power error but i am having problem downloading Windows Debugger.

I installed the SF DM log Collector on another working pc but the thing is...it is collecting the DM log on the working pc. I have however, able to copy the erring pc's minidump files but its on the desktop only. Is there anyway around this? How can i attach the minidump files without using the DM log collector? Will zipping the folder be enough?

Thank you.

A:BSOD random shutdowns Kernel Power 41 (63) errors.

I can't keep the the machine to run longer than 5 minutes. And as of now, the startup time is taking too long...i can to any update for the drivers then. I have noticed too, that some of my USB ports are starting to come up with errors. some peripherals that works before are starting to become "unrecognized".

And i failed to inform that...i don't really get a "Blue Screen of Death", its just a black screen with some screeching noise coming from the speaker.

I was able to keep it on for much longer. Here are the diagnostic files using SF Diagnostic Tool. I hope this gives additional info as to what is causing this BSOD!

Thank you!

I had a system that was blue screening and having sporadic critical Kernel-Power errors. I have since replaced the power supply, motherboard, CPU, graphics card and RAM. the only parts that remained were the ODD and HDD.. I am still getting Kernel-Power errors ("information" and "error" level only now) but it is not blue screening.

I read another thread that made me think it could be my old power strip/surge protector that could be failing. but I'd like to ask if this would possibly be the hard drive? it was wiped, reformatted and a clean install of Windows was done. I can't think of a way the hard drive itself could cause my issue but I just wanted to double-check.

System Info:
ASUS H97M-PLUS
Intel Pentium G3258
Kingston HyperX Fury 1x8GB DDR3 1600MHz

The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.

Hi, for the last week I have been putting together a low power, small form factor, miniITX windows 7 64 bit based HTPC. Unfortunately, while playing various types of movie files in either windows media center or windows media player, anywhere from immediately to 45 minutes into the playing of the media file either the video and audio will freeze, and a few seconds later, the system will power off with no warning messages and stay off until I turn it back on. The same thing has also happened a few times when simply browsing media in windows media center. Otherwise, it has not happened outside of playing media, such as doing routine tasks in the OS.

So, technically, I am not getting blue screens, but the windows log shows kernal power errors every time I reboot and look at the event viewer.

Hi and welcome

The bugcheck indicated 2 causes of your BSODs. First one is TfFsMon.sys, which is driver for Threadfire I would suggest to uninstal threadfire to see if BSODs go away

Secondly, the bugcheck indicated mfehidk.sys, which I believe is component of Mcafee anti-virus software. Third party security software are well known for causing BSODs and Mcafee is not an exception. I would suggest u to remove Mcafee completely for testing.

If you want to have something else to protect your computer while not having Mcafee, please use this free well-known anti-virus and not known for causing BSODs:

Hello, i have been experiencing random restarts at the beginning of January. The 2 restart i remember the most at the beginning of the month was when Just Cause 3 was loading up and when i was updating Nvidia drivers. These did not come up with a BSOD. But after that the restarts have been much more frequent happening around once a day and now i have a BSOD, and i don't have an explanation for these resent problems. Looking up on the internet at first i thought my graphics card or PSU was the problem but i now think it might be a software issue with drivers or something.

I have linked a ZIP file with all the files you need!

Anyone could help i would really appreciate it. If you have any questions about anything please ask and i will try and explain as much as i can. Thank You!

Hi everyone, I've been having this problem for a while and can't seem to find the cause of it.
I'm using an ACER 2920z laptop which came with Vista 32 and I've upgraded to Windows 7 64. This was a fresh install in January, and I saved an image of it - I have tried re-imaging but to no avail.

I have a process (I think its a process) called sentinel 64 which gives errors but I can't work out how to stop it running.

The restarts seem to happen more often when the computer is idle but has also happened while browsing the web. Files requested attached.

No dump files are attached, did you run any system cleaner(such as Clceaner) after the crash?
If so wait for the computer to BSOD and re-upload the file

Hey ho!

So my computer has been bugging me since I bought it in October. Random BSOD has occured, sometimes several times a day and sometime it goes a couple weeks between the restarts.

Well, it never goes to BSOD, the computer just reboot.

On the picture I highlighted the time Driver Verifier was on.
What I've tried so far:
Reinstall Windows 10
Tried each one memory stick for a couple days.
Memtest during nights, Intel Burn Test, Prime95 - No faults
Driver Verifier - Cause a restart shortly after logged in, used DDU to uninstall GPU drivers - This acctually got the computer to leave me a BSOD showing the HIDClass.sys / LGVirHid as a bad guy. Removed Logitech Gaming Software and it worked again, for a couple hours. Now it's something new.

First time posting here, should show how desperate I am to get these issues rectified. Not really sure what is triggering these BSOD's. At first I figured it was due to bad RAM, but now the crashes seem to come in two's. Once out of no where, and then again as soon as I log into my profile. After that, it seems to run fine...until it decides to crash again.

Fairly new to all this technical stuff as well. For now, I'll have a .txt file attached to this post with info on my crashes. Looking with NirSoft BluescreenView, I've actually had a number of crashes related to different things. It's all spanish to me. And I certainly don't speak spanish. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hey,

I have problem with random shutdown of HP 8760w
I bought a used computer and I have it already half a year.
Even when the system fresh problem appeared (very rarely).
Shutting down is not related to duration of action, heat, stress.
HDD (hd tune?) , CPU (occt), graphics card (occt), RAM (memtest) was tested.
The error which remains in the logs is usually:
Kernel-Power (41)
The power supply is original, measurements showed correct value.
Turning off is quite rare, sometimes one by one , and sometimes 1/week.
Yesterday there was a BSOD (BugCheckCode 126?). BSOD appears rarely,


most frequently it is sudden shutdown.
BIOS, all drivers are up to date. Original windows ultimate 7 x64 with updates.

Help.

I have been having random BSOD for the past year now and they happen at any time. I have noticed though, that it may be HDD related as some times I will be clicking on a link etc and I get a BSOD.

I ran CHKDSK just before and when I came back to check after leaving it to finish the 5th pass, I saw it had BSOD again.

Files attached and any help will greatly help.

Please do not ask me for dump files or anything related to BSODs: My crashes are not related to BSODs. I HAVE NOT GOTTEN ANY BSODs AND THUS DO NOT HAVE ANY DUMP FILES.

For about the past month and a half, I've been getting random crashes in Windows 7. My computer suddenly turns off and reboots itself. Just a black screen. Sometimes I don't get a crash for five days, sometimes I get one twice in the same day.

My copy of Windows 7 wasn't genuine. I did a completely clean install of a genuine copy of Windows 8.1 one week ago, just to rule out problems on the OS level. I just got a random restart an hour ago. I only brought over media files from Win7, so I'd say my problem must be hardware related, or something to do with my power socket.

Thoughts? Unfortunately, I can't change sockets easily, as I would have to move my computer into another room for possibly weeks just to see if the problem reoccurred (it's so rare).

The event viewer shows that these crashes coincide with Event ID 41: Kernel-Power. The event data is always blank as follows:

BugcheckCode 0

BugcheckParameter1 0x0

BugcheckParameter2 0x0

BugcheckParameter3 0x0

BugcheckParameter4 0x0

SleepInProgress false

PowerButtonTimestamp 0

My monitors do not turn off when the computer self-reboots and they are connected to the same surge protector as the computer. Does that pretty much rule out a socket problem?

Hello Swift,

Seems more of a power statement than a bsod issue of some form.

Your system also has the capability of shutting down in the event of some form of MAJOR hardware fault.

I have this issue several times with servers in the past, most of the it turned out be a fault PSU.

Have you tried running LinX Stress Tester? with max settings all ram included?

Hello folks.

Need some help here. I installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit in April and I am getting BSODs every week or so. Sometimes more frequently. These have been happening ever since the instal. It was a clean install on a new hard drive. I am running a dual boot set up (by switching boot sequence in my BIOS so I can boot to my XP drive to run some of my older Music production software). I have tried updating drivers but cannot seem to resolve the issue.

The most frequent error has been IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL but have also seen MEMORY_MANAGEMENT and PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.

I have 3 hard drives divided into multiple partitions. I have my Windows 7 partitions hidden from XP so I don't wipe my backup files from 7. I do have some older hardware installed as well that I use for Music production. Such as a 750MB Zip drive.

CPU is an Intel Q6600 at 2.4 Ghz all stock settings nothing is OC. 4 GB of RAM. I ran Memtest86+ through numerous passes with no errors so I the RAM is good. I've tried a few other fixes from reading on the interwebs but nothing has worked.

I used to run Avast but suspected that may be causing the issues so I switched to Microsoft Security Essentials but the problem still exists.

I would very much appreciate some help on this.

I have attached the .zip file from DM Log collector. ALso ran SFC Scannow with no problems found. I'm at a loss...

Many thanks in advance for the assistance.

Hi DrillHead.

You are having various bugchecks, and all are referring to memory. Not necessarily the RAM, but may be some drivers are failing.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If it does not show any error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore ... Read more

I have been getting random BSODs for weeks now.

There does not seem to be a rhyme or reason to it. It occurs at random, and will sometimes go to a BSOD or hang my computer to unresponsiveness.

I believe i may have fixed the MSEOOBE issue (Microsoft Security Client OOBE" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D) that I had in my event viewer but the issue still seems to keep occuring and its becoming frustrating.

My system specs are in the appropriate forum section. I have attached the BSOD information as requested. Hoping for some help on the matter and am grateful for the help in advance.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Let us know the result. If possible, a camera snap of the memtest86+ screen before closing the program would be nice.

No DMP files included in upload please try this method
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.

Hi there,

Like the title says, I have some issues with annoying BSOD.

Here is a short summary : my computer began to freeze after some idle time. I did a memory check and nothing seemed wrong there so I assumed it was coming from the HDD. I then bought a SSD ans installed it.

Now Since the SSD installation I allready got 4 BSOD / 2 after installing windows Update, 1 in game and 1 on Youtube.

The first thing that comes to mind is of course a problem with the SSD. But as I had some issues before, I'm not sure about this.

My config :

OS : Windows 7 Home x64
CPU : Intel i7 2600
Mother board : P67 Sabertooth Asus
GPU : GTX 570 DCII Asus
Ram : 8Gb Gskill
SSD : Crucial MX100 512Gb

Hi guys,

I have been having trouble with random restarts - they seem to happen more when I am playing video games (even ones that are very easy to run and don't place much stress on the GPU/CPU) however it also happens when I am watching stuff, just browsing the web, when the PC is idling and so on.

It never shows me a bluescreen and it never leaves minidumps or any error logs that I am aware of, the only thing it shows is Kernel Power 41 Task Category 63 error in the "Event Viewer" program.

ASUS Gene VII z97 Motherboard
16gb Corsair RAM (4x4gb)
Nvidia 780
Seasonic Platinum 1000w power supply
250gb Samsung SSD

I have a bit of time to really focus on this lately and try to finally fix the issue, so last night I was running memtest while I was asleep and found that my memory had lots (thousands) of errors on the Test 13 (Hammer Test) part of memtest.

Today I individually tested each 4gb stick by itself in both the first slot AND the second slot of the motherboard, just running test 13 on memtest and every single test had errors.

This RAM worked perfectly fine in my old computer for 3 years so I find it incredibly unlikely that all 4 sticks have decided to go bad at the same time, so I was thinking it must be the motherboard? But even then, that means that 2 memory slots are faulty at the same time.. this once again, seems very unlikely, does it not?

These were all related to memory corruption (typically a drive). Please run verifier to find the mis-behaving driver.
These crashes were caused by memory corruption probably a driver.
Please run this test to find which driver is causing the problem.

* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have a Raid update its Driver.

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise.

Got this pc a week or so ago. BSOD seems to occur whenever I play games. I've played incremental games and used youtube for a few hours and some days it'll occur in an hour and some days it doesn't occur. It always occurs when playing most other games (on steam).

Not much I can say that isn't listed in the dump files except that Driver Verifier causes my audio to become shitty and I'll always end up with a corrupted screen (meaning I need to restart) before BSOD, so I can't seem to use that. I'll try and find a usb to run memtest+ on tonight.

A:New PC, random BSOD. Multiple Errors.

The errors you're receiving are mostly pointing to corruption or some defect in hardware. Before we start looking at drivers could you perform the steps outlined below please.

Download and run MemTest86+ to test your RAM. RAM - Test with Memtest86+



   Note


Run MemTest86+ for at least 8 passes. Ideally set it off before you go to bed and leave it overnight, we're looking for zero errors here. A single error will show something's going bad with your RAM.

I'm having multiple bsod that happens very randomly. I recently purchased an ssd it was working perfectly fine but now I just get these bsod. I think it's because my motherboard might be a slight defective but I still need help. I've been reformatting my windows to stop it, but it just keeps happening. Here are the logs of my bsod's before my last reformat. I don't know what else you I need besides the mini dumps I tried the tool but I just bsod when I use it, I can still boot my computer into safe mode.

Bsod can happen a couple minutes after startup, it can happen when using Chrome, it can happen when starting up a game. I cannot isolate what exactly triggers them. I have swapped ram around, ran with one, I have used memtest and it found no issues, all drivers have been updated. I'm lost at this point and an amateur so I need some direction.

Hi Chewbacca21,

Welcome to the 8forums.

Daemon tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause for BSOD's.
Please remove Daemon Tools and run the SPTD pass through remover

If the button is grayed out, like in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can close the window.

This has been happening for some time now, but it became more frequent recently. The computer will seemingly freeze out of nowhere, sometimes creating a BSOD, sometimes not. The way the problem comes up is kinda weird. As long as I don't launch any intensive 3D applications, the crash will either happen in the first few minutes after booting, or not at all. If I make it through the first few minutes, then I can leave the PC running for weeks (literally, I tried) as long as I don't do any gaming. If, however, I get a crash, then usually I'll get multiple in a row. Once it even froze in BIOS. Even weirder, the same application/game that can, sometimes, cause it to freeze within minutes multiple times in a row, will, at other times, run with no problems for hours on end.

I've attached the zip with the last few dumps, though obviously that's not the full extend of the problem, seeing as quite a few of the freezes will leave no "evidence" behind. I also have 8 Kernel-Power (ID 41) errors in my event viewer, though that seems to be the restarts I had to force after freezing.

Thanks in advance for your help.

This PC was built nearly a year ago and I am now starting to run into sever random BSODs. I've done sever MemTest, DskChks, GPU tests, CPU tests and have not run into but one odd problem. When running a MemTest on he RAM, only twice, have I run into some errors. I removed the sticks that were reported bad. Though I'm still getting all types of errors. Occasionally y the PC will also restart on it's own.

Originally I had x4 8GB of RAM. Now I'm on 6GB. One stick seemed to be bad. But when I go back to test the other sticks I sometimes get errors, and some times will not. I've run 7 passes on each stick in different slots. Only sometimes I'll get errors, then the next test on the SAME stick, no errors.

I've checked all my drivers and made sure they were all up to date. I've gone into the PC and made sure everything was plugged in correctly. Also made sure there were no bad capacitors and other components/hardware. Everything is secure in place and correctly installed, hardware wise. Tested the Power Supply and it checks out okay as well.

This did not start occurring after some software install either. I've done complete formats and re-installing Windows 7 64-bit.

What is really odd is the BSODs and restarts happen several times in a row. After a few BSODs and restarts the PC will be fine for easily 8 hours with no problems. It all seems to happen after it's been off for a night. The first hour, give or take, after being turned on does it all occur.

A:BSOD. Multiple errors. Random occurrences.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

I built my PC about two years ago and it has sporadically had BSoD's the entire time. Sometimes it is while playing a game or just idling. I can't seem to replicate it, it just sort of happens. My first thought was perhaps bad memory. I initially had 8 GB of Corsair ram that I have ran Memtest on for multiple passes and they have all come back clean. Same for chkdsk on both of my drives (the HDD was the first primary OS drive until the SSD was purchased). They both have always come back clean. I then thought it was my cracked version of Windows 7.

I recently bought a licensed copy of windows, 8 more GB of Corsair ram, and a new video card. I added the RAM and video card first and logged in. I started getting hard freezes after 3-5 minutes of logging in with all 4 ram sticks in, then endless boot loops. I did a fresh install of Win7 with the legit copy, same thing. I removed 2 of the ram sticks( the originals) and the boot loops stopped and I was able to get windows updated and drivers installed. I put the original ram back in and after an hour or so I got the original BSoD's again. I then removed the original, leaving the new ram in. So far I have only gotten 1 BSoD naturally with the new ram in but then again, they have always been very random, sometimes having 5 in a day and then none for a few weeks. I ran driver verifier and within 2 minutes of running it caused a BSoD about the registry filter, but most of the others are critical structure corruption via ntoskrnl or ... Read more

Hello,

I've been trying to find solutions in other threads and online "help" only to find no help at all.
I would rather avoid contacting the Manufacturers if I can help it.

Some of the BSOD Error codes include:
1e, a, 24, 7e and many others.
I've had System Service Exception and Driver IRQ Equal or less (or something similar) and at this point I am at a loss.

I Can several high-demand games one after the other and get a clear day without crashes, then later start my Minecraft server or attempt to watch a video on YouTube and suddenly get a blue screen or random restart.
I also ran Virus Scans with Malwarebytes, Super Anti Spyware and Norton 360 and found Nothing, I did run a Check Disk and It supposedly found Hardware issues, at the least I would like to narrow it down to what It could be.

Hello,

My PC is experiencing random crashes/freezes, and BSOD, typically at start up when I start browsing the web or at times at playing PC games. My WhoCrashed analysis seems to have multiple error codes indicating driver issues but I cannot recall installing any new software recently, some of the error codes are:

On Fri 6/6/2014 12:03:42 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: Unknown (0xFFFFF8800CB48190)
Bugcheck code: 0xA (0xFFFFF8800CB48190, 0x2, 0x1, 0xFFFFF80002D050B2)
Error: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Bug check description: This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error.

You might want to mention it is a Mac.

The majority of these were caused by memory management (probably a driver).

Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.
1-Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

2-Driver verifier
