It's my first time posting, and I’ve been having some BSOD issues for the past two weeks, there’s a bit of a story but I’ll try keep it short. I hope this is the correct place to post.
About two weeks ago I was getting BSOD called MEMORY_MANAGEMENT and PAGEFAULT IN NONPAGED AREA. These I googled they could possibly be related to RAM, so I took out one RAM stick and it worked! I tried the other and eventually got a blue screen. The blue screen would usually take like 30min or happen quickly while gaming. So about a week later I got my RAM replaced no hassles.
When I put the new RAM in the computer’s fans started light came on and it turned off, it did that twice then it posted, but with a different black screen with small white writing, with BIOS options. I guess it was to be doing with the new RAM?
Anyway, it was all working fine until a few days later and I get a BSOD when I turn my computer on in the morning, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Restarted the computer and I tried to do a system restore but that failed. So I swapped the RAM sticks around and got that black screen again, different BIOS screen with some options. I got back into Windows and eventually BSOD again, this time “Driver corrupted pool memory used for holding pages destined for the disk”:
STOP: 0x000000DE (0x000000000000002, 0xFFFFF8A00AFC06F8, 0xFFFFF8200AFC06F9, 0x000000009F1C28C0)
The computer kept revving and wouldn’t turn on, I left it for 30min then it was fine for a couple of days. Until today, I just got SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION:
STOP: 0x0000003B (0x00000000C000001D, 0xFFFFF88001A1AC03, 0xFFFFF8800BC979C0, 0x0000000000000000)
I don’t know where to find the dump files sorry.
GPU: Gigabyte 2G 7870 Overclock Edition
SSD: Samsung 840 120GB
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB
Motherboard: AsRock Z77-Extreme6
RAM: Patriot Viper 8GB Kit DDR3
PSU: Corsair TX650
I fixed the problem by uninstalling MVP control panel(came with asrock mobo), updating my BIOS from 2.4 to 2.6, which were not too far apart.
Also, I think the main fix was pulling out my new RAM, holding down the power button to discharge, replugging and then reseting the BIOS settings. An IT inclined friend recommended this after I had already done it and he said it was a common fix.
