Variety of BSoDs, confused :(

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just today I started getting a lot of random BSoDs, and I'm not sure why/what to do.

I ran a chkdsk, sfc /scannow, and ran MalwareBytes (just in case). I'm not sure which step I should follow now.

Completely reinstalling is an option, if nothing else works, but I'm wondering if you guys think it's a hardware issue.

The BSoDs happen at random times, once it was a few minutes after initiating a large file transfer to a network drive, the other was while installing Catalyst 10.11, and also while just surfing.

Here are the latest ones:

Had your ram tested? Faulty ram are one of the biggest causes for BSODs.

Running Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool right now, although I could be running memtest86+ instead (I have lots of Linux CDs lying around) should I do that instead?

Alright, a new problem, I can't tell which stick is bad. I ran the test again with just one stick, then the other, then the first again, and the second one again, and they passed every time. What should I do?

Typed "Page fault in nonpaged area" into Google and got this for my first link

Check all recently installed software, especially antivirus software, and do a test on your hard drive. Also use memtest on your RAM one stick at a time. Other than that type those things into Google and check out the links for all the help you can think of.

It might be both of your sticks which might be faulty. Have you tried them in different slots?

Did you update windows with Windows Update lately? Uninstall all the MS Updates dated after Christmas and see if your BSOD's go away. It should not hurt to run your system the way it was before Christmas. After all, it managed to survive to Christmas OK..

Put everything at stock clocks and run some P95 blend with only a single DIMM installed. If both sticks tested ok individually, I'm guessing the mobo is going (memory controller). Only one way to find out, though.
