Windows 7 ntoskrnl.exe+71f00 BSOD
Feb 20, 2012, 12:46 PM
I've been getting this lately, and it would just be random too. So I decided to re-install windows.
Did that, and I still get it.
While trying to boot from the CD I kept getting a USB I/O error saying a device was connected that couldn't be read.
It wouldn't allow me to boot up the windows CD.
Eventually it did, but my question is...with these 2 errors. WTF is going on?
FYI:Been running on Safe Mode all night...woke up and it's still working just fine.

Ntfs.sys driver is the culprit every single time.
What does this mean?

^^ Basically, the system crashed while within the file ntfs.sys. Which means SOMETHING is screwing up deep within windows.
Odds are, you have a bad stick of RAM. Run memtest86 on each stick of RAM, and see if any report an error.
