I've been getting an occasional blue screen on my Windows 7 system for quite some time. Usually a restart will stem the issue, but lately it's become almost a daily occurrence. Quite honestly I have no idea how to read minidumps or the bluescreens themselves. I've zipped and attached the minidump, and I have the screenshot (which I can attach later, if needed) on my phone. Anyone willing to help me? 

 

Thanks ahead of time!

This used to happen to me when my system got to hot, or when I ran out of writable disk space. I would suggest try to clear up some space on your HDD, then after that you will need to defrag, and make sure proper cooling is used. If you still get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death), I would suggest trying to post in the malware removal section for malware removal help :)

Sounds like a plan, but just to make sure-- the minidump was pointing towards cooling issues?

 

I'm a little surprised honestly. I have an aftermarket cooler strapped onto my CPU, and I don't usually run graphics-intensive programs for prolonged periods of time. The system runs pretty cool. 

 

Are you saying that you usually received BSoDs when your system was hot or out of disk space, or does this minidump point to these issues? Thanks again!

For me if the main issue was just the temperature, it would say something along the lines of "your system is too hot and has been shut down to prevent any damage", but if there are more than two, it will just give a normal BSoD and will list things like 0x2322, etc. I currently cannot look at the minidump but once you get the BSOD, look at the 0x number and tell me what it is.

Here's the error displayed

 

 

If anyone has the time to take a look at the minidump from the first post, that would be great. I'm not really willing to check my cooling, free up hard drive space, defrag, and check for malware when the issue is most likely specifically mentioned in the minidump. (Although these are great recommendations, and good places to start)

 

I'm willing to bet the issue is driver-related, and unless I am mistaken, the minidump most likely explains the exact problem occurring. Let me know if you find time to check the dump. :D

 

Thanks for the help!

Hi, All I can tell you is there is a driver problem, however I also cannot open that zip file to see if there is a chance of it pointing to which driver, can you pleas copy and paste the contents of the last three or four dump files into this thread.

 

Nev.

Sorry about the zip file. Here's another, with a bunch of dumps in it (5+) from the past few days. 
 
Also, thanks for the link! I uploaded a few of them, and I can't tell if it's a driver issue or a memory issue. (or something else) I updated my graphics card driver a few days ago on a suspicion that it was causing the BSoDs, but they've still been occurring. I'm still not sure what's causing the issue. Sound like I'm getting closer to the solution though. :D

Looks like memory to blame........ Lets check a couple more  things first.

 

 

 Download Autoruns and Autorunsc Unzip it to your desktop and then double click autoruns.exe After the scan is finished then click on File>>>>>>>>>>>Save The default name will be autoruns.arn make sure to save it as Autoruns.txt under the file type option. in other words make sure it is a .txt file instead of .arn Attach the text in your next reply.
 

Please download MINITOOLBOX and run it.

I agree, looks like bad RAM.

//Consistent stride memory corruption on every 6th and 14th byte across a page in memory.

Memtest86+ mounted on a CD/USB stick and ran for 8 passes should confirm this.
