    Variety of BSODS Returning


    Hi there guys!

    I thought I had fixed my BSOD Issues ( Driver IRQL not less or equal, dpc watchdog violation, dxgmms1.sys, kernel security check failure, Pagefault in non paged area ) by increasing the voltage to my ram, rolling back my video card drivers and using a wired ethernet internet connection.

    It worked for a couple of weeks but it seems now I'm back to square one and I'd appreciate any help. I'm not really sure what to do from here onward. I have run MEMTEST to verify that the ram was okay, which it was after 19 passes of the test. I have re installed windows 8 many times formatting my hard drive before each install. Run the computer without the graphics card, but I'm still having problems and I have no idea what to do.

    Again any help at all would be appreciated, and I'd also like to note that I had these issues with Windows 7 too

    I've look at least 10 recent crash dumps. They were all caused by various drivers including 2 memory corruptions. Normally, I would think it is something wrong with your RAM. However, you said you ran the memory tests and had 19 passes. What memory diagnostics program did you use ? How much voltage did you increased ? If too much might get the RAM hot and might mess up the timings, suggest you to relax the timings a little lower than the spec. In addition, in your DriverList.txt, there are couple of really old drivers, namely: Nfrd960.sys, secdrv.sys dated back to 2006 and something does not look right that you also have a Null driver:
    nfrd960 nfrd960 Kernel 06/06/2006 22:11:48
    secdrv Security Driver Kernel 13/09/2006 14:18:38
    Null Null Kernel 26/07/2012 03:30:16

    You might want to look at which device is using these 2 drivers and update them.

    Hi

    I used memtest 86+ to run the ram tests. I let it run overnight which allowed it to complete 19 passes.
    The voltage is 1.56 up from 1.50.

    Sorry for the noob question but what is a Null Driver?

    Thanks so much for the help!

    No, this is a good question and here's some explanation about it:

    BTW, have you ever run chkdsk C: /r /f to make sure that your hard drive is not defective ?

    Also I'm extremeely sorry but I have no idea how to find out about the devices that use those drivers. All I have been able to determine so far is that Nfrd960.sys is an IBM driver, and secdrv.sys is an intel disc security driver

    This is a very long process so please be patient. You might want to run it before you go to bed and let it run over night. Stuck @ 27% might be a bad spot that chkdsk is trying to fix.
