Hey guys, wondering if anyone can help me out here.  Getting quite a few crashes & BSODs recently (past month or so).  Crashes are mostly happening in browsers (firefox tabs & full program, chrome full program) but other program are crashing at random, too, although somewhat less often.

 

Windows 7 x64 system, quite old install, survived a couple of hardware migrations, the latest onto an nvme.
I really-really do not want to reinstall, it'd put a huge dent into my ability to work with all tools & settings lost.

I can't recall the exact source, in fact one of my big problems is a lack of a compatible repair CD!  I think it was via the now extinct microsoft developer program whatever it was called.

 

The current hardware itself is less than a year old, it's currently not overclocked, although I did run some overclock on it without issues for a while.  I had a recent bummer, where my cooler gave in, and the system overheated.  I had to buy & install a crappy temporary cooler.  This whole thing may have had something to do with this all, it has all started around that time.  So there is a chance of a hardware error at the core, in fact I'm really hoping that's the issue; it's quite simple to fix (if I know which bit to replace, that is).

 

Corsair Carbide 600Q
ASUS Maximus 9 Hero
i7-6700k
NZXT Kraken X62 cooler
G.Skill Trident Z 32GB (2x 16GB) DDR4 3200MHz
Samsung 960 Evo (nvme)
ZOTAC GTX 1080 TI AMP Extreme
Seasonic Prime 850W Titanium
 

I've already run memtest+ overnight.  It did not seem to turn up anything.  Will proceed with other tests as recommended.

 

Many thanks for any help in advance!

Hi. . .

...the latest onto an nvme.

What is an "nvme"?

Please run the jcgriff2/Sysnative app in the BSOD sticky - https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/

Attach the zip file output to your next post. I need the dumps and files.

Regards. . .

NVMe drive, the samsung 960 - it required a 2-step approach, first I've created a regular SSD copy that I could boot in the new computer to install the drivers (they wouldn't install in the old computer) and then migrated onto the 960.

 

Hm...I did run it and when I started the topic the first thing was I've attached the file.  Weird.  I'll try and attach it again.

Edit: ah, I see now; I've attached it, but did not click the 'attach' button extra.  That caught me out.

I'm wondering if anyone been able to find anything out from that file above?

I've run the memory tests again, overnight, and bought a new HDD & replicated the content to be sure (I did not want to run any potentially damaging tests here). 

There is seemingly no problem with memory nor HDD/SSD.  

I've also run through all the things I could update - bios, mobo drivers, gfx drivers.  

 

Still, the problems persist.

Gents it seems it is some kind of hardware deficiency after all.  Playing around with windows 7 installer on a virgin drive and trying different ram combinations (for lack of a better idea), I've achieved stability it seems; half a day gone now w/o a crash or bsod.

Weird that no ram test was giving me any indication of a problem.  But I digress.

 

Can someone please help me out and remove the file from the first post?  I can't seem to be able to edit the first post anymore.  Thanks.

 

Mod Edit:  Removed attached file, moved topic from Crashes/BSODs to Internal Hardware - Hamluis.
