Vista bsod

  1. Hi,

    (first post here on techspot)

    Let me explain my problem.
    When I start my pc, everything is fine and works fine. I have a folding@home client running, my pc was up for 5 days non stop folding on my gpu but this night again I had a bluescreen. Now it was: 0x0000000A.

    But it is not the first time. Sometimes I have 1 bsod in a month, sometimes 2 in a day or 1 in a week.

    I ran memtest86+ and didn't find anything, same with Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool.
    I removed all hardware added it step by step, checked if it booted and if it had errors or had system beeps, but everything was fine.

    This is my pc config:
    Windows Vista x86 + SP1
    2x 1GB ram
    Core2Quad Q6600@2.40GHz
    nvidia geforce 8800gts
    Case (with PSU):
    Case A-Open QF50E Black 400W
    Power Supply: 300/350W ATX(Ball bearing fan), UL/CSA/CE/VDE/S/D/N/ FI/FCC /DoC certified

    more details are in the dumpfiles (attachment)

    bsod messages that I had:

    0x0000000A (this night)

    Some older ones (I don't know if these bsod below still happen because I removed antivirus, removed some drivers etc so the only bsod I had until now after removing some software was this one above (0A))

    Problem signature:
      Problem Event Name:	BlueScreen
      OS Version:	6.0.6001.
      Locale ID:	2067
    Additional information about the problem:
      BCCode:	a
      BCP1:	0000002C
      BCP2:	00000002
      BCP3:	00000000
      BCP4:	81CA0CFD
      OS Version:	6_0_6001
      Service Pack:	1_0
      Product:	256_1
    *** STOP: 0x0000000A (0x0000002C, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x81C95CFD)
    STOP: 0x0000004E (0x00000099, 0x00077c88, 0x00000003, 0x0004593B)
    0x0000001A (0x0000888A, 0xA7FAC018, 0xC03695C8, 0x83B1A3E8)
    STOP: 0x0000001A
    Problem reports and solutions from windows gave me a solution and told me it was my antivirus (removed mcafee, still the same)
    Some say it's my memory (but that doesn't give errors), others say it's my power supply unit, others say it's an audio driver, some say it's just vista, etc..

    It would be very nice if I knew what was the problem (I check windows updates every 2 or 3 days, I have all the latest updates I guess).

    The attachment are the dump files from the bsod this night (the most recent one).

    I hope somebody could help me. :(

    Bugcheck 1A by itself is a strong indicator of a RAM problem. If you add bugcheck 4E and A (with memory corruption), then you need to look at the RAM. Memory testers aren't perfect, so try running each stick of RAM one at a time.

    BugCheck A, {2c, 2, 0, 81e8cd29}
    Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiReleasePageFileSpace+4d )

    I have removed ram and tested 1 RAM stick at a time.
    didn't find anything there, even let it test on other hardware, it is all ok.

    So i don't think it's my ram...

    I meant run your system with only one stick of RAM to see if it still crashes with normal use. You'll need to do this for a while if it can stay up folding for 5 days.
