    Hey there

    Getting random BSOD with win7 that i've nv gotten with my old XP SP3.
    The only new hardware i added was a very old DDR2 1gb Ram and a samsung hdd which probably isn't the issue.

    i've used the SF diag tool v4 to gather all that u guys need to help me :) as well as the rammon html file.
    Anw i've ran memtest like twice with no problems.
    i'm not an expert so won't won't guess and let you guys perform the magic! :fox:

    thanks in advance!

    May I recommend you remove that 1GB stick as it won't be doing you any favors and is more than likely the cause of your instabilities. It being PC4200 will also be dragging down the perf of the other faster pc5300 sticks.

    Hi Ed and welcome

    These were caused by the directx driver.


    VIDEO_DXGKRNL_FATAL_ERROR (113)

    The dxgkrnl has detected that a violation has occurred. This resulted
    in a condition that dxgkrnl can no longer progress. By crashing, dxgkrnl
    is attempting to get enough information into the minidump such that somebody
    can pinpoint the crash cause. Any other values after parameter 1 must be
    individually examined according to the subtype.

    The following actions might prevent an error like this from happening again:

    1. Download and install updates and device drivers for your computer from Windows Update.
    2. Scan your computer for computer viruses.
    3. Check your hard disk for errors.


    I would re-install the newest video driver using this method and update to SP-1. Before you update be sure to run the update readiness tool listed below



    When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper


    Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

    When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

    Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 from the Microsoft Download Center

    Memory corruption probably caused by a driver. please run these two tests




    1-Memtest.


    *Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

    *Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

    Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

    Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.
