BSOD Errors

Good Afternoon All!

I had some parts fail on me and did an RMA on my motherboard and CPU. I also replaced my RAM (I think my ram was the true culprit but I received new MB and CPU anyhow).

Ever since I have been unable to play any games with a BSOD. I can go anywhere from 30 mins to 3-4 days without a BSOD. I've attached my dump files. I've had multiple error codes pop up. Could it be I have faulty ram? I did run memtest and it found tons of errors on the core 4 processor stage of the test so maybe core 4 could be corrupt? Not sure exactly what all it was testing...

Before I did my RMA I never had a BSOD...I didn't reinstall windows 7 x64 (I'm installing SP1 as I'm typing this) when I rebuilt my computer as it was the same MB and cpu just different RAM. I did update my MB to the newest BIOS and my video driver is the most current.

I've attached some of my dump files from the past 2 weeks....hopefully some geniuses out there might be able to help me out...I'm at a loss on this one.

I appreciate any help!!

One other suspicious driver
ahur1i04.SYS 7/17/2010
I say suspicious, because neither Google or Bing produces any information. So it may be worth doing a little investigating to see if you can determine what it is, what it is for and why it is loading. If not sure you may want to consider renaming it by changing the extension from ahur1i04.SYS to ahur1i04.OLD .... up to you.
If Blue Screens persist then:
First make sure your machine is configured properly to facilitate the collection of .dmp files.
Go to Start and type in sysdm.cpl and press Enter
Click on the Advanced tab
Click on the Startup and Recovery Settings button
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump << where your .dmp files can be found later
Click OK twice to exit the dialogs, then reboot for the changes to take effect.
Please read the first post in this sticky thread here How to ask for help with a BSOD problem
Do your best to accumulate the data required.
Run the SF Diagnostic tool (download and right click the executable and choose run as administrator)
Download and run CPUz. Use the Windows snipping tool to gather images from all tabs including all slots populated with memory under the SPD tab.
Likewise RAMMon. Export the html report, put everything into a desktop folder that you've created for this purpose, zip it up and attach it to your next post (right click it and choose send to, compressed (zipped) folder.
Additionally, if you haven’t already, please take some time and fill out your system specs in your forum profile area .
And perhaps consider updating to Service Pack 1 for Windows 7
Download and install the correct system readiness tool prior to installing SP1.
System Update Readiness Tool for 32bit (x86)
System Update Readiness Tool for 64bit (x64)
Good luck

Thanks for the info Randy! I'll look into those and make the changes you suggested.

I've messed around with some things and I haven't had a BSOD since----6 hours and counting----not sure if I'm lucky or I fixed the problem. What I've done so far:

Reseated my ram--I tried different spots but still had BSOD even quicker than before so I put it back to the 3 and 4 spots and made sure it was nice and snug.
Updated Alcohol 120% prior to reading this post---you recommend I remove this-----
I was going to reinstall windows 7 but I did a repair for shits and giggles----maybe that helped? I havene't reinstalled yet.

I'll keep you all posted in case anyone else has something similar.
