Random BSODs, system freezes, hard resets

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This problem has started randomly and recently for me. I've mostly noticed it the past few days though.

I first noticed when I started running a minecraft server for a friend. I left it up overnight (with intention of 24/7 uptime) only to find my computer had restarted overnight due to a BSOD. Tried it again the next day while at work, got home to another restart from a BSOD.

While gaming I have had random freezes and hard resets. Freezes as in the screen completely freezes, windows is unresponsive and I have to reset my computer. Hard resets, the computer instantly restarts.

I have also encountered freezes while not doing anything CPU/GPU intensive such as browsing the internet, going through folders etc.

These crashes are in no way constant. They seem to be pretty spaced out but also completely random. I hadn't actually SEEN it reset on my or freeze in probably a week, it was just having random BSODs while I wasn't home.

Have redone plenty of drivers, including display probably 3x. I have run memtest, chkdsk /f on all hard drives..... I really don't know why this is randomly happening.

System details (also in signature):

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
OS is from retail, installed myself (multiple times, have had plenty of wipes in my time with Windows 7, last wipe was probably 8+ months ago if not more)
Hardware is pretty new, most recent addition is a second 7850 for my crossfire setup I bought around march or so

FX-8350 (back to stock clocks to troubleshoot, was @ 4.4)
Crossfire XFX DD 7850s @ stock
ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0
Rosewill HIVE-750 750watt PSU (54A on single 12V rail)

Had a new BSOD today while using ccleaner. I went to hit the "clean" button (ccleaner found a stagering ~8GB of data to delete, which I find hard to believe), and instantly experienced a BSOD.

"A driver corrupted pool memory used for holding pages destined for disk".

After reading it seems a hard one to figure out..... Haven't had a chance to look at the mini dump yet but will attach it to this post. Maybe someone will know.

EDIT: actually, got a chance to look at the mini dump. Nothing useful however.... Seems as though the driver at fault is MIA.

Both my recent BSODs have no third party driver at fault, always system drivers as a "guess". It doesn't seem to be a hardware issue, but I can not find out what driver is actually causing it.

Time to redo as many drivers as I can think of...

Well still having random BSOD issues... I really don't know the deal. I'm fine using firefox, tons of folders open, DJing with Traktor Pro etc. But playing an intensive game can BSOD it easily. Not always instant, sometimes hours into playing a game. Blows my mind.
