Constant BSODS with many different reasons (I have crash dumps) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Lately I've been bluescreening constantly for many different reasons. Some of the error messages I've gotten are memory management, system service exception, and IRQL not less or equal. I have a ton of crash dumps which I'll upload if somebody can tell me how to.

  • Check your memory.  A lot of BSODs can be traced to bad memory.

    Windows 7 has a built-in rudimentary memory checker that can help.

    Boot with a Windows 7 DVD.  At the first screen, hit <SHIFT>+<F10>.  You will see that you are at x:\Sources>.  CD into Recovery (cd recovery).  Type RecEnv.exe, click Next.  Select the top radio button that reads, "Use recovery tools . . . ."  Select Windows Memory Diagnostic and chose the restart now option.  

    For a more thorough check, however, head over to http://www.memtest.org/ and download the latest version.  Burn the ISO to a disk or make a bootable USB drive.  Boot and follow the on-screen instructions. 

    Also make sure your memory modules are properly seated.  Loose memory modules (or PCI/PCI-e expansion cards) will cause havoc on your system.

    A not-so-nice screen of failed memory.

  • Hello,

    Bug Check Code 0xA: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff560129%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

    Bug Check Code 0x1A: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff557391%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

    Please try proceeding like that:

    • Udpate all possible drivers
    • Uninstall all unused programs
    • Perform a cleanup boot: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
    • Disable all security softwares that you have
    • Run chkdsk /r /f and sfc /scannow
    • Run memtest86+ to check if all is okay with your RAM. If an error was detected then replace the faulty RAM or contact your manufacturer Technical Support.

    Once done, check results. If this does not help then please use Microsoft Skydrive to upload dump files (c:\windows\minidump). Once done, post a link here.

    You can also contact Microsoft CSS for assistance.

  • I ran another memtest and the ram had a ton of errors which is strange since the ram was replaced about a month ago and it passed the test then. I have suspicions that my motherboard is damaging my ram since this is my second set of bad ram and my house was struck by lightning last summer. The strike had seemingly only damaged my ethernet connector so I just bought a pci network card which has recently also failed on me. I'm going to replace my Rampage III Extreme with a Rampage IV on the insurance claim and send in the RAM on RMA (Again). Hopefully that will fix my problems.

    There's a link to all of the crash dumps I've built up.

  • Hi,

    I noticed this is multi-BSOD problem. First want I suggest that you may use “chkdsk /f” to check your disk and use Windows Memory Diagnostic to check your memory. Then check whether this problem occurs again.

    Also, you may run Windows 7 in Safe Mode then check whether this problem occurs again, please let me know the result.

    In addition, you could scan the virus on your machine.

  • I've tried all of that. I'm currently only able to boot in safe mode due to a new bluescreen I get soon after booting to windows normally. It says "A driver has been caught trying to corrupt the system."

  • I tried all of that and I'm currently in safe mode because my computer has a new bluescreen now that happens almost immediately after booting up that says "A driver has been caught trying to corrupt the system" In safe mode the computer is completely stable \.

  • That means that you have a bad driver. You can disable driver verifier in safe mode to hopefully get the system to boot (though you may get a blue screen),


    Then, please either upload or analyze the latest dumps
