Troubleshoot BSOD pfn_list_corrupt and memory_management

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey there,

I built a new computer a week ago and I've been noticing some issues getting some BSOD. 3 times I've gotten pfn_list_corrupt and 1 time got memory_management

Specs:
i7-4770k
H60 Closed Loop Cooling
nVidia GTX 670 (taken from previous computer)
8Gigs 1600mhz Corsair Vengeance
Gigabyte Z87 MoBo
600W Corsair PSU
128GB Samsung 840-Pro Series SSD (taken from previous computer and reformatted with fresh everything)
500GB Seagate (taken from previous computer)
Windows 7

All my drivers are up to date, I flashed the MoBo with the latest BIOS and all Windows Updates are implemented. I have no Anti-Virus software but I don't believe it's a virus anyhow.

1) During the week my Firefox was repeatedly crashing randomly over and over which didn't seem right..
2) I got my first BSOD on Friday evening playing a game and I was just though oh....that's no fun. (pfn_list_corrupt)
3) I rebooted the system and fired up the game I was playing before and the game crashed over and over which it's never done with my old PC.
4) Saturday night I got two more BSOD while trying to install Elder Scrolls Online. (pfn_list_corrupt)
5) Today I uninstalled Mozilla and installed Chrome and it is randomly crashing as well. I also got another BSOD, this time it was memory_management


What I've tried since getting blue screens:
1) Updated all of the updates available with Wiindows 7
2) Flashed latest BIOS
3) Updated all drivers (graphics, chipset, sound, etc.)
4) Ran Memtest86+ for 10 passes on each individual stick of RAM in the same DIMM slot and got 0 errors


I'm not sure what else to try at this point, I don't know what the problem could possibly be. I searched Google and most seem to say it's likely a RAM issue but I had no errors come up while testing quite a few passes so I've kind of ruled that out but maybe I shouldn't?

Thanks in advance for any help you can pass my way, I'm willing to give anything a try if you have an idea share away! If you have any questions that aren't in the post let me know and I'll do my best to answer them.

This may be dumb but the DIMM slots are as follows slot and color:

DDR3_Slot_1: Grey
DDR3_Slot_2: Black
DDR3_Slot_3: Grey
DDR3_Slot_4: Black

I had both sticks side by side in Slot 1 and Slot 2, do they need to both be in a Grey slot? Could that be causing these issues ya think?

Well running the sticks side-by-side, you aren't getting the benefits of Dual-Channel memory bandwidth (Should be Slot 1 and Slot 3, or Slot 2 and Slot 4), but that wouldn't cause the instability you're seeing. Memtest passing is a bit puzzling; have you tried running some Windows stress tests like AIDA64's stability test or Prime 95?

I just went to the store and told them the RAM was bad and got two new sticks. I feel like maybe it was a fluke that they passed, I'll run your suggested tests later this evening if it continues to crash.

Thank you!

Fwiw, I too just built a new rig.
4770k
GA-Z87X-UD4H

I have had a ridiculous time getting memory to work properly. Currently, I am only able to run one stick. With two, it bsods. May be related...

What RAM are you/were you using?

I was using 8 GB (2 4GB sticks) of Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz. When I took it back I actually swapped the RAM out for 8 GB of Corsair Vengeance, but this time I went with a lower latency. I think I just had a bad stick of RAM because I haven't blue screened since I swapped out the new RAM.

Even if all the tests are running positive I would return the RAM and tell them it's faulty because at this point I'm convinced that's what it was.

Here's the RAM I paid $20 extra for when I returned the other one last week: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233144
