Need some help on blue screens.



  • For the past weeks I’ve been plagued with blue screens. I’ve improved the airflow in my case, I’ve updated drivers, I’ve updated windows. I also recently upgraded to 64-bit of Windows 7 Pro hoping that it would be fixed and it’s still a problem. I probably have no doubt that it is a hardware problem, but I have no idea the specific problem is. My guess is the video card or the RAM.

    Here’s a screenshot of the .dmps in Blue Screen Viewer:

  • Did you ever test your memory?



  • Probably the ram or some other hardware problem since it’s a different driver crashing every time
    I’ve had this happen to me once but it was driver related (wrong motherboard driver :th_Mad:)



  • I already did a Memory Test and windows reported no faults, but it was only a basic test. I will try the extended test soon.



  • My best guess is to strip your system down to the bare minimum. Use onboard video (if you have it) 1 stick of ram, etc, etc and if you keep getting blue screens you just slowly eliminate the different parts. It’s a major pain in the ass, but I see no other way to find the problem

    -edit-

    And this doesn’t seem like a software based problem because the crashes are all different, but remove any programs you downloaded right before the blue screens started happening. I had a keyboard who’s driver’s gave me blue screens daily.



  • did you change the order of your ram sticks?



  • @Dent:

    Did you ever test your memory?



  • yeah no this same string of errors matches the time my motherboard was crapped due to static shock(i used to have this fetish where I would rub the inside of my computer)

    replaced the motherboard and the BSODS stopped.



  • Really hope it’s not the motherboard. Then again, I do need more PCI slots….

    And I tested my memory already. There was no problem and it still happens. I’ll try the RAM stick switching, and if that doesn’t work, I’ll consider getting a new motherboard. But, I’m open to any other inexpensive solutions that doesn’t require me to put c4 into my computer or anything of the sort.



  • put one stick in.

    do extended memory test on one stick.

    play with computer with 1 stick.  more bsods?  safe mode and play for awhile more bsods? look for a new mobo.

    If you know it’s the motherboard you can try baking it in the oven



  • BUY A NEW FUCKING COMPUTER.

    do a fresh reformat with fresh drivers.

    I already did a Memory Test and windows reported no faults, but it was only a basic test. I will try the extended test soon.

    Memtest86+ is pretty much the best app for testing RAM. Burn the ISO, boot it, and let it run for a couple hours.

  • I’ll try the one stick of RAM when The Memtest86+ doesn’t work on all of them installed.

    I heard of baking a motherboard before, doesn’t seem fun. It will be the last thing I’ll do if it is the motherboard, just before buying a new one. Although it would make sense that it is the motherboard is at fault because of the USB Driver error, but that is only one error.

    hahaha, no

    I did do a fresh install of Windows. I said that I had upgraded to the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Pro. It’s not possible to smoothly install 64-bit from 32-bit(unless I missed some kind of memo).

    I already tried the Memtest thing, but not Memtest86+. The original managed to somehow go 108% of memory checked. I’ll try out Memtest86+ after some other things I’ve tried.

    Shut up with the reformat, it’s fucking obvious I said I already did.

    EDIT: Strangely enough, what Kelly Chambers has suggested, changing the order of the RAM sticks, worked. However, it has only been a day. I’ll see if the Blue Screens are actually gone tomorrow.
