Windows 7 Constantly Crashes to BSOD, Need Help RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys,

    I had a mate build me a new comp late last year and its been problems from day one.

    Running Windows 7 professional 32bit. To begin with it would just randomly freeze to a light blue or gray screen which i would have to reset, normally within ten mins of running (even on login page), though normally if i had a fullscreen game running this would prevent it. Anything else (surfing the net, just working on word docs) and it would freeze up sooner or later.

    My Specs Are:

    CPU - AMD AM3 Phenom II x4 965 (Quad Core 3.4ghz/8mb/125w/45nm)

    Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P

    RAM - Desktop DDR3 Ram 4GB Kit (2x2048MB) PC 12800 1600MH

    Harddrive - 3.5" HDD SATA-300 2 TB (2000GB) 32MB Western Digital
          - 3.5" Raptor 300GB 16MB 10000rpm Western Digital

    Disc Drive - Bluray-combo with DVDrw Samsung SH-BO83a

    OS - Windows 7 Professional 32bit

    1050w Andyson (True Power 1050w)

     

    Thought it might be a driver issue so i got driver genius and updated all of the drivers it suggested, since then it has stopped freezeing and started actually crashing and restarting itself (not sure if this is really an improvement or not). Really don't know much about this sort of thing so help on this would be appreciated.

    link to dumps on skydrive is below, though i've never used it before so let me know if i stuffed it up.

    I'm tearing my hair out so if anybody could give me a shove in the right direction that would be great!

  • PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (4e)
    Typically caused by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists (ie: calling
    MmUnlockPages twice with the same list, etc).
    Arguments:
    Arg1: 00000099, A PTE or PFN is corrupt

    IMAGE_NAME:  memory_corruption

    Is the RAM compatible with the board? Can you please run it with 1333 instead of 1600MHz?

    Also scan your RAM with memtest86+ for errors.

  • Hi,

    Certain things you can try are to find out the root cause of the problem are given below.
     
    1.    Have a look whether you can reproduce the problem in safe mode.
     
    Start your computer in safe mode
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Start-your-computer-in-safe-mode
     
    If behavior doesn’t persist in safe mode, it indicates that a third party program or service is preventing you from performing the action as supposed to.
     
    To validate or determine which service/startup item could be causing this, restart the computer and boot to desktop normally. Once done, perform clean boot.
     
    2.    Clean Boot prevents software conflicts by preventing the startup items and non Microsoft services from loading. This way you can safely follow the process of elimination to check which application is causing this behavior.
     
    Refer:
    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
    Note: Ensure that you put your computer back to normal startup mode after completing the troubleshooting steps. Steps are available in the article given above.

    If the issue persists in Safe mode, check to make sure the RAM meets the DDR3 spec voltage of 1.5V. If it's rated at a higher (overclocked) voltage, you may have to get some standard DDR3 memory to get the MotherBoard to run smooth.

    Meanwhile, click Start, type memory diagnostic and press Enter to launch Windows Memory Diagostic. It requires a restart. Please tell us the result for further research.
