    Win 7 blue screening

    I am experiencing Win 7 crashes that seem insoluble. The software crashes after approx 10 min use with seemingly random error messages. The following are examples with codes: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x82CFB4AB, 0x9BB8CB58, 0x00000000); MEMORY_MANAGEMENT 0x0000001A (0x00005100, 0xC0201C08, 0X00000002, 0x0000D4BE). FLTMGR_FILE_SYSTEM 0x000000F5 (0x000006E, 0x99CBB470, 0x99CBB440, 0x00000000); IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL 0x0000000A (0x00000034, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x82CA6372); BAD_POOL_HEADER 0x00000019 (0x0000003, 0x8462C2D8, 0x8462C2E8, 0x8462C2E8).

    I have no idea what I can do to resolve the problem. Restore points do not work, Windows Repair was unsuccessful. Asistance with this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    All the errors you're receiving point to memory and one to drivers. I would follow the advice on the above page and see if it helps. If it does please post back so others will know.

    vcoyne..
    Hello...and welcome to the lounge. I hope we can help with your problem...There are many here that will try . First some more information would help.

    1. Windows 7 , 32 or 64 ?
    2. Is this a new problem with a new install, or has this just started happening?
    3. How much "RAM" are you running?

    To start download the free.iso, and "burn the CD" "memtest86" memtest Free...insert CD and Re-Boot...Let it run for many cycles (overnight is good) See what's up. Post back with the "info" and will go from there...Take a breath as sometimes "blue screens" are tough to figure. Regards Fred

    Thanks for your assistance Butch.

    I have solved the problem. I first checked that the hard drive was not infected with viruses, malware, etc by downloading the Microsoft Support Emergency Response Tool (MCERT) which confirmed that the drive had no errors. I also installed and ran Bluescreenview which confirmed that the crashes were memory related. Since it seemed that they invloved win drivers, etc that comprised the kernel, I decided to check the hardware first. Opened the box and removed and reseated the RAM. Luckily, this solved the problem! The RAM must have ben loosened at some time due to the box being knocked or moved, which caused memory issues. I have run the PC without further problems and have successfully installed Win 7 SP1.

    Thanks to the Lounge and its extremely helpful members, I have sorted out this problem without it balooning out of control in terms of money and time!

    Cheers,
    Vernon
