    Tons of BSOD over the past several months

    I'm throwing in the towel.
    I have received numerous BSOD's over the past 8 months or so. They reference different errors, but most are memory related. The last one (today) was saying that I was attempting to execute non-executable memory.

    I have not had a lot of time to sit and fix the issue. I finally decided to come here and get help.

    I am attaching the required zip files.
    By the way, this happens on all 4 accounts on the computer, not just admin, etc.
    The dump files are processed from my personal account, which is also the admin account.
    Do I need to attach the zip files from every profile on the host?


    Please help asap!

    Hi,

    At first glance, checkout your memory, remove one stick at a time & test the system!

    The problem is that it doesn't happen at boot up, kind of happens at random...I'll try it, but I'm not sure this is going to get me far.

    Also, ran memtest (for what it's worth) for about 15 hour and nothing was returned.

    Running the driver verify tool now...waiting for the next crash.
    In the last months I've had IRQ less than or equal errors, memory errors like the one in my first post, and all types of others.

    I'm surprised I've only had one response to my thread as most others get picked up rather quickly.

    And checking the RAM and rebooting and playing around did not replicate the issue.

    Re: Tons of BSOD over the past several months

    I am very sorry for the delay. I usually handle the BSODs, within 24 hours, but since you posted twice (at the beginning), your new and unanswered thread bypassed my radar. That being said lets see what we can do. You have a multititude of BSODs, all different, giving various causes. The best place to start is with hardware. Since memory is considered hardware, Lottiemansion has put you on the right road. Lets try a few things to see if we can try to narrow it down.
    Try the Windows 7 upgrade advisor and see if it can lead us in the right direction
    Download details: Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor
    Can you stay in safe mode long enough, to know if a BSOD will occure in safe mode?
    If not stay in clean boot, until you get a bsod or you are sure it will not happen with a clean boot
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
    After I know the answers to the above, I will offer additional help. We will get you up and running again.

    Ok, so I ran the Win 7 upgrade advisor, saved the output as an .html file, and am uploading the results.
