    BSOD on a cold boot! After BSOD works fine!


    Since getting my custom built PC, I have a BSOD that occurs after about 2 minutes of getting past the welcome screen and I only have this BSOD on a cold boot. If you could please help me and give me some advice on what i should do I would be extremely grateful!

    I originally posted this BSOD on Seven forums: BSOD on first boot then okay! (NTOSKRNL.exe) - Windows 7 Forums
    Thank You!

    You have about 15 dump files since 1/6/2013 and the causes for BSOD's with different processes. You might have a bad memory stick. Download Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool , burn, then boot up from CD to run the test

    Did you run the test with memory diagnostic tool came with Windows ? If so, do it again with the link shown above. (Some of the dump files indicated there's memory corruption).

    I also suggest that you open an elevated command prompt then run: sfc /scannow to make sure you don't have any corrupted system files.
