BSoD Constantly, Even After Reinstall

durandal4532durandal4532 Registered User regular
So, on Saturday, I got a BSoD. It was a memory error, something about unpaged space. Now, I'm getting them every time the machine is on more than an hour, even in Safe Mode. They always say a different error occurred.

I reinstalled Windows, I've run chkdsk /F/R, I'm looking for any other options.

OS is Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.

Edit: Oh, and after the reinstall, it tells me the non-system HDD is "not accessible", and when I attempt to run chkdsk on that HDD, it BSoD's.

Edit again: Tonight I'm going to try removing the RAM I have one at a time and then... I don't really know what stress test I would do.

    Have you run memtest?

    That is an excellent point, I'll do that tonight.

    Oops, or no I won't. No burner available, no one I know has Linux for the USB key version. Hmm.

    You can also use the built in memory diagnostics test from Microsoft.

    go down to step 2 to run it from the boot menu. I've had similar problems on an old desktop and had the best luck by testing each stick of RAM separately and running multiple passes (the bad RAM passed the first couple test runs cleanly and didn't fail until the 3rd or 4th run). Changed out the bad RAM and that stopped the BSoDs.

    Of note: it's worth checking your motherboard voltage and RAM voltage are set correctly. My brother had continuous BSOD problems with his computer because his motherboard was a 1.5V system and his RAM was actually 1.65V. Bumping the output in the BIOS fixed it.

    Does it blue screen when doing anything else? This makes me think problem is with that drive, it's sata cable, sata port on mainboard or mainboard itself. Try moving the cable to a different port, then a different cable, then run it without that drive at all, see what happens. If you still BS without that drive, then check temps.

    Wait, why the fuck is that in no way indicated on the main site? They specifically say you can't use a USB if you don't have Linux. God damn it I could have had this done by today.

    Edit: anyway yeah when I get time again it'll just be doing memtest, followed by the voltage check, followed by testing each RAM stick individually. I don't think it's the HDD, as this has been happening even when doing nothing but using AIM in safe mode.
