  1. Hey,

    I built this computer ~12 months ago. Everything had been working just fine till yesterday. BSOD came up. I've done the following

    Ran Kaspersky Virus scan off USB boot key - Clean
    Ran Chkdsk on main drive, found a few problems and fixed
    Using Windows 7 boot cd, did system restore from a few days ago.

    Now the computer boots to the log in screen, then locks up after i enter my password.

    Wanted to add, just started running Memtest86+. Need to read more about understanding memory dumps. Not sure yet how to tell if one is pointing to bad memory.

    WIndows 7 Ultimate x64
    Intel Core i7-920
    ASUS P6T SE Motherboard
    OCZ Gold OCZ3G1600LV6GK 6GB RAM
    XFX HD-487A-ZWFC Radeon HD 4870

    I've attached the last 6 mini dumps all from last night and this morning.

    Thanks for any help

    The only thing listed as probable cause are Windows OS drivers and usually they are too general to be of much use for diagnostic purposes.

    The fact that you ran Check Disk and there were a few problems lends me to advise that you use the harddrive diagnostic utility from your harddrive manufacture.

    Burn it to a CD, place your DVD drive as First bootable in the BIOS, place CD in drive and reboot. Make sure you especially do the long test.

    Ran the long test on my hard drive. Found nothing. Going back to the memory test to see if that finds anything.
