I've been getting a BSOD for quite some time. (about 3 or 4 months)
At first they would usually pop up when I've had the computer for most of the day, but recently they've just come as they please.
I've done a Memory Diagnostics and it showed no problems.
I've included from what I've read I believe to be a minidump of the BSOD.
I've decided to send multiple errors I found in my system event log just to be on the safe side since I don't know which errors I'm looking for.
If you could find anything that could explain what is causing this, please let me know.

Thank you.

I've also read the sticky in the BSOD topic and completed steps 1-4.
I've included that as well.
Unfortunately, I do not know all the parts in my computer since I was not the one that bought them or put the computer together.

I'm throwing another .zip file of a BSOD I had less than an hour ago.
Hopefully it can help.

The first and third posts only provide a sampled event log and not a crashdump. You'll want to peruse your minidumps folder located in your Windows folder. The .dmp files are the crashes you're looking for. However they're already provided in the report you generated in the 2nd post. You'll still need to provide us the one in the latest post you've made.

The one thing that interested me is the report of errors coming from your motherboard chipset. You'll want to update your chipset drivers (probably want to update everything else too) as provided on the HP website. You may just also end up experiencing hardware failure. We'll start off with that for now. First, update all them drivers for your PC via your vendor's (HP) website, especially chipset. Then you will want to do a few hardware tests, preferably in the order provided:

CPU: Prime95
RAM: Memtest86+
Disk: Seatools

Prime95: set it to Torture Test with Small FFT. It'll run indefinitely, so let it go for around 12 hours or more. Note any errors.

Memtest86+: I understand you already did a memory test with Window's built-in memory tester, but I've heard it having issues discovering certain memory problems. Memtest86+ is far more thorough and accurate. Set it to extended testing mode and let it run through minimum of 7 passes.

Seatools: Pretty self-explanatory, yet you may review documentation here. As noted in it, various tests may produce 'Test Unavailable' as some tests are incompatible with certain drives.

Describe to us any unusual behavior (such as application/windows crashes during these processes).

If all that shows up nothing, then we'll have to then assume it's something related to the UAC (User Access Control), paging file, and/or Superfetch. I notice in two of the three crashes UAC pops up in one way or another. If you see no need to use it at all, I'd recommend turning it off via instructions given here. Prior to doing so, however, you'll want to do the following:

- Open Task Manager
- Go to Processes Tab
- Go to View > Select Columns and select UAC Virtualization.
- Sort the processes by the new virtualization column. Note any processes that are virtualized. Please mention them to us.

I think these are the correct dumps.
Last night, I completely reinstalled Windows 7 and formatted my hard drive.
I noticed the BSOD went away for a little while, but now they're back.

I ran all of those test before the reinstall and my computer passed all of them with no errors.

I also forgot to mention that sometimes when I BS and it restarts, my computer will sit there on the Motherboard model screen and not boot up at all. I have to manually shut down and repeat this maybe 10-20 times before I can get it passed that point, so I'm wondering if it could be my Motherboard or maybe my Hard Drive.

Please run a full report as there is useful information in it that is not included in the dump files.


Both these last two dumps reference memory corruption. You said you've ran both memtest for 7-8 passes and prime95 without any errors?

The memory corruption bsods mention specifically a bit flip error (memory_corruption_one_bit), which is typically the most common symptom of hardware issues.

Judging by what you stated with the restarts, that most likely could be caused by a motherboard problem or a power supply problem. I'm leaning most on motherboard (odd though that it doesn't manifest in the other tests).

Okay, when I first ran Memtest there were no problems in the 5 passes through, but now I ran it and on the first pass I'm getting thousands of errors. How do I find out which chip is causing the problem?

You'll need to test each stick of RAM individually and in each slot on the motherboard. I know it is a very tedious task, but it is the only way to figure out which stick of RAM is bad or if you have a bad slot on the motherboard.

I started removing some RAM sticks yesterday and found one that might be causing a problem, so I removed it and my computer went all yesterday with not a single problem. I thought I had rid myself of the problem.

This morning, I woke up and turned it on only to get a screen freeze. I saw no blue screen, but the screen was locked in place. I had been getting that the yesterday before I was testing the RAM. I got it to turn back on once after about 10 minutes of power on and off manually and did a memtest and I got like 8 errors before I stopped it and started taking out another stick.
When I had anymore than the 1 stick from yesterday out the computer wouldn't boot at all.

I currently have it booted up, but I have no clue how long it'll last.
I've had multiple occasions like this where I seem to have fixed the problem, but as soon as I turn it on the next morning, it starts acting up again.

By the way, my motherboard is not even a year old.
I bought it maybe in late 2010 and I've had no problems so far.
I'm thinking that the RAM would have nothing to do with the computer being unable to even boot up, so I'm thinking it might be my hard drive, but I'm not entirely sure.

Please note that off-by-one memory errors can be CPU errors as well - if the problem keeps occurring at a one-bit off memory error, we have to at least consider the CPU itself is causing it.

Unless all those sticks came from the same kit, I would find it hard to believe majority of them buggered out altogether. You may have a funky motherboard. Again, CPU can also be the cause as Cluberti says (one-bit corruptions commonly are caused by cpu).

What I'm most interested in is that inability to turn on the PC. That reduces it to power supply, motherboard, cpu or memory, since all those are crucial to startup. Since we're reporting issues with practically all the memory sticks, we can potentially reduce it to power, mobo or cpu. It'll eventually require you starting to swap parts to determine the cause, so it's going to start burning a whole in your wallet, but there's not much else that can be done here aside from that.
