W7 BSOD question

Last response: in Windows 7

November 25, 2009 12:02:56 AM

Hi. First I had windows 7 RC running fine on my custom build machine and soon I started getting BSOD errors. When I bought the retail version of Windows 7 64 bit I was hoping it would stop, but I was wrong. I get BSOD everytime when I try to play a game, and even sometimes while watching a video or just surfing the web. I reinstalled windows 7 with not luck. I also updated all of the drivers and still get the BSOD and changed my ram from OCZ 4GB to Corsair XMS2 4GB...again no luck. Can this be a hard drive failure? I dont even know what else to do Im completely lost. I tried running memtes86 but it only works if I have one stick of RAM. When I have both in it simply restarts my computer. Any help would be very appreciated.

Specs: MSI P965 Neo mother board
Pentium D 3.4GHz
Corsair XMS2 4GB
EVGA 8800GT
Seagate barracuda HDD

Here are the dump fines I gathered over the few days:

Seems as if something is amiss with the hardware. If it isn't a memory issue, I'd move onto the HDD and then may be graphics card. Use a HDD diagnostic program to see if the HDD is throwing any SMART errors. If that is a no go, may be try switching out the graphics card if you have a spare one laying around and see if that gives you any results.

+1. Check RAM first, then the hard drive, then video card. The Ultimate Boot CD is a good source for hard drive diagnostic tools.

Thanks Ill try the Ultimate Boot asap and let you know how it went

my computer cant even install Ulitmate Boot, it gives me a BSOD during the installation. I think ill just get a new HDD and see what happens.

You don't install it. You burn it to a disk and boot from it.
November 26, 2009 5:49:08 AM

yeah burning a CD is impossible. Gives me a BSOD every time

As you've tried other RAM, then, unless the PSU is really struggling, that suggests the motherboard is faulty.

Given your last reply to me pengiun, i'm tempted to go with what Andy said here...
November 26, 2009 11:46:44 PM

does hard drive failure not give these problems usually? thanks.

Failing hard drives can cause random (but still frequent) blue screens as well. Whichever option is cheaper for you, go for that first.

Edit: Given that NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM blue screen you posted originally, go for the hard drive first.

will do! thanks again for your suggestions!
