Daily BSODs on Windows 7,different errors each time

  1. I have had BSoD issues for awhile now, figured formatting may work, fresh installs may work for about 2 weeks before it ends up starting up again, I finally am fed up with it so I figured I would post my 5 latest BSoDs from my minidump folder here and see if anything helps. all of the time happens at different situations, sometimes im viewing a flash video and it crashes, ill be mid video game and it crashes, it will be idle and crash, or maybe working in Word and it crashes, just different things here and there. please help if possible.

    Your six minidumps had six different error codes is a strong indicator of corrupted memory and one specifically cited memory corruption as the issue. Therefore you’ll need to run Memtest on your RAM.

    1. Go to www.memtest.org and download the latest ISO version which is 4.20. It is free and perfectly safe.

    2. Burn ISO to a CD.

    3. Place CD in your drive and reboot with CD in drive. (You might have to place your drive as first bootable in your BIOS) The test will take over.


    There is a Tutorial: How to use Memtest in our Guides and Tutorials forum; 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.
