  1. I have recently started experiencing BSOD's on my Windows 7 64-bit box. I rebuilt the OS and the BSOD's continued - so I'm pretty confident it's not a software issue. It must be a hardware issue.

    The minidumps cite ntoskrnl.exe.

    Can someone help me identify what the root cause of these are?

    Minidumps attached.

    Every one of your error codes are different which often points to memory corrupt. For diagnostic purposes run memtest on your RAM.

    See the link below and follow the instructions. There is a newer version than what is listed; use the newer. If you need to see what the Memtest screen looks like go to reply #21. The third screen is the Memtest screen.

    Step1 - Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes; the more Passes after 7 so much the better. The only exception is if you start getting errors before 7 Passes then you can skip to Step 2.

    There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

    If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

    Step 2 – Because of errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don’t need to run the test any further on that stick.
