Since i had no replys I kicked it up a notch and learned how to use WinDbg and the snipping tool from the tutorials. Here's some more info.

Good job. Unfortunately, since this hardware is new, there's a possibility that the error is caused by malfunctioning hardware.

Does the MiRelinkStandbyPage function get mentioned in all 3 minidumps?

Can you paste (just the text) output of the 'kv' command from each of those?

Thanks for the reply H2SO4,

In looking at all 3 minidumps it appears there were 3 seperate issuses which cause the problems the last one was svchost.exe the other 2 which happened on the 29th were dfrgntfs.exe and syncservice.exe.

since it is my first go at windbg can you please explain what you mean by the kv command, when I look at the data the only thing I see is a command kb.

Or is this a function command I need to run, and is there some to copy and paste the data as I am unable to highlight and copy. Thanks

Don't worry about the actual process whose thread was involved in the crash (svchost, syncservice...). Counter-intuitively, that is almost completely irrelevant for reasons difficult to explain succinctly.

Once the automated analysis is complete, just type "kv" (without the quotes). It will produce some output. Simply use the mouse to highlight that new output, copy, and paste it here as text.

Or just zip up and upload the minidumps themselves.

...I hope this is what you had in mind.
Yes, that's it.

All 3 of those crashes are in low-level memory management routines - the ones controlling the interface between virtual and physical memory. However, all 3 are substantially different, and that tends to suggest more of a hardware-ish slant to the problem.

The second crash may potentially be linked to the EAMON.SYS (NOD32) driver, but it's almost impossible to tell from a minidump and the fact that the other two crashes are different suggests it's probably not all eamon's fault.

There are ways to make the OS apply greater scrutiny to drivers in the hope of catching them doing something obviously "bad", instead of running into corrupted data long after the original culprit is long gone, as in this case, but I think that approach may just further muddy the waters at present.

Instead, I'd suggest using memory test utilities like the built-in one, Memtest, and/or Prime95. If they detect obvious breakdowns at a hardware level, then you can be confident there's a hardware component to the problem.

I purchased MemTest pro and started to run it the errors it is finding are to many to list but here is a sample.

my memory is comfigured 3X 2GB and 3X 1GB the memory I was told was compatable as the mfg and version DDR3-1333 (PC-10666) is the same and the computer is see 9GB.

As my handle states I am in overmyhead what do I need to do to fix the errors the test is finding so far I am looking at 2000 errors and counting.

Could this also be causing a BSOD freeze issue I sometimes see after reboot and try logging into my user account?

I googled my problem and learned that if I removed all of the ram and placed each stick in one at a time into the lead memory slot and rerun the MemTest I would be able to determine which stick was the culprit.

So now that I have located it I off to my friendly Microcenter to get it replaced. I will update you as to whether or not this resolves the issue. However due to your keen intellect I have no doubt we have resolved my issue.


Thank you so much for your help and support H2SO4.

I know it probably doesn't feel like it, but in a way you've been fortunate. The fact that memtest readily finds errors means at least you can be sure the hardware is suspect and there's no immediate need to tear your hair out looking at the software side of things - you'll need all the spare tearable hair for the hardware :(

Without wishing to get pointlessly philosophical, this is the downside of building your own machine. Put it all together, press the button, it produces a satisfying beep and boots... and then it starts doing mysterious s##t on ya. You can't call Dell/HP/whomever to complain, so you're left to your own devices to troubleshoot.

It may turn out to be fixable by tweaking voltages and improving the airflow or re-seating all componentry - that sort of thing. Check out similar hardware troubleshooting (voltage, temperature, frequencies, multipliers...) posts here by "stew2" or "smarteyeball". They offer a lot of advice on how to gauge your current hardware health.

Otherwise, there's the unfortunate possibility that the hardware is literally broken in a way that's unfixable, and replacement is the only way forward. In that case, I'd suggest starting with the RAM as the most likely culprit, although there's no guarantee.

Could this also be causing a BSOD freeze issue I sometimes see after reboot and try logging into my user account?
Yes, absolutely. Unreliable physical memory can produce almost any effect or symptom. I'd suggest not spending more time on any of that until memtest gives you a 100% clean bill of health. Only then can you start to hope that any remaining symptoms may actually be software problems.

Good luck with it.

Test of the replacement RAM is complete and all looks good, now only time well tell if this resolves my issuses.

What I can say is what a excellent mentor you have been H2SO4, if I could add more to your reputation I would but it tells me I need to spread some more lovin around before I can refirm the respect I have for you and your help.

It is one thing to google and find suggestion as to how to resolve issues but to have a site like this and individuals such as yourself willing to helpout and hand hold, this is truly a God send.:cool:

Thanks again

I'm glad whenever I can help out others just a little through whatever knowledge I've gained through my many mistakes. Thank you sincerely for the rep and for your kind words :)

If there's anything still wrong with your machine, please come back and describe the symptom, and everyone here will try to help.
