    My computer has been blue screening for well over a year. I put it in storage after it started happening, the problem persists after os reinstall, complete and total format, and with a new graphics card. Myself and a colleague had assumed through process of elimination that it was my Radeon 4850 x2 Graphics card. So, I dropped another $300 for a new one. The problem still persists. I have had several different BSOD's, I am uploading the .dmp files, but this is from a flashdrive transfer, and i cannot say if it will work correctly as I have had issues with this Flashdrive. The Graphics card was a last ditch effort I have no idea what is going on and the research i have done has left too many possibilities. Here are the errors as best I can remember assuming the files don't upload correctly. IRQL_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL_TO. PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGE_AREA. I believe there were others, I may be wrong or maybe this is enough to know. i have had the BCCodes; a, and I guess I don't have any others at hand. Please help me someone. I am a gamer and all gamer's know how painful this is. Thank you.

    Can you please consolidate them into a single zip file? Can you tell us if there's any pattern to the BSODs? Does it occur only during gaming? How frequent are the BSODS?

    Also, have you actually done any hardware tests? Perhaps burn a UBCD and run some tests from it, such as:

    RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes (1 pass = all tests 1x)
    CPU: Prime95 - (UBCD calls it Mersenne Prime Test) Torture Test; Blend; overnight (9+ hours)
    Drives: Seatools - All basic tests aside from the Fix all, Long generic or the advanced ones.

    Those I would start off with.

    Your system specs would be useful too and screen caps of cpu-z every tab including all slots with memory in them.

    i will do all these tests later on today. As far as the bsod, it happens every time i turn my computer on for 2 to 15 minutes. i generally get the less than or equal to more often than the page fault bsod but as i said my computer is unusable in its current state. my explorer.exe crashes consistently as well. i fear though that i may not be able to run said tests before it will crash, i formatted my entire computer and with it years of accumulated data from games to games saves and other media. this did not help the problem, i have reinstalled win 7 ent i believe 3 times as well. as a bad run of luck i lost my product key as well. hopefully some of this is helpful, but i will reply later hopefully with the requested data. i appreciate your help.

    That's why you burn the UBCD onto a disc using some other computer, then startup the computer with the UBCD. The UBCD is a liveCD environment that boots independently from any OS on the hard drive.

    Also, you said you are using Win7 Ent? Is this a workstation system? Wouldn't it be best to refer to your company's IT department?

    Oh, and the crashdumps? All of them are incomplete. I suspect a bad hard drive or motherboard.

    no this is not a workstation i got it from college. its a home setup. that's what i thought, i have been having lots of issues with this flashdrive but its the only one i have. i will attempt to find another way. so this ubcd can go on a cd? or is it too big and require a dvd blank? and what makes u think it may be a harddrive or my motherboard and how would u differentiate that? i am running 3 hd's 1 sata 2 ide

    The UBCD can fit onto a CD, since the ISO is 520 MB whereas a CD can fit up to 700MBs. Either a CD or DVD will suffice.

    The reason why I speculate it is your motherboard or hard drive is because when a crashdump fails to be created properly, either by being incomplete or corrupt, it is quite frequently due to a problem with disk I/O at the time. The motherboard or the hard drive are therefore the most obvious suspects in such a case. Other suspect items would be your RAM or your power supply.

    Unfortunately, there's no way to diagnose motherboard problems outside of swapping the mobo out for another one. The same goes for the power supply unless you wanna cough up money for a PSU tester that applies load (not just any PSU tester will do). Nay, all we can is just work with what items we can somewhat diagnose and speculate on those results.

    I recommend just running with the tests on the UBCD mentioned prior to start off with.

    Oh, btw, try reattaching your power/data cables for all your drives from both motherboard and drive ends, just in case.

    well gentlemen, it seems i had 2 bad ram cards out of 2. i was about to run the memtest when my girlfriend walked in and handed me the phone with a local computer store tech, i briefly explained what was going on and he thought it was the ram card i then pressed enter and within 5 seconds the test showed me that i had faulty ram. my girlfriend then took it upon herself to go purchase some ram cards i installed them and put my previous gpu back in and im up and runnin now. thanks for the help

    Sounds good. I had a feeling there was a RAM issue. It's not the most frequent cause of crashdump corruption, but it is most certainly possible. Glad to hear it's resolved.

    You need to initialize them first, and then create a partition (or partitions) on them. Type "Windows disk management" or "computer management" in Start Menu. If you do the latter, navigate down to the bottom of the list to find Disk Management. When there, you should see bottom half of the window listing storage devices and you should see the two missing drives. Right-click their name and you should have an option called "Initialize". Initialize them with GPT or MBR (preferably GPT), then right-click the unused space on em and setup a partition on each.
