BSOD's 4,5 or 6 Times A Day

Hi, I have been getting BSOD's over the last 4-6 weeks but not too frequently. Over the last week or so they are now hitting me 4, 5 or 6 times each day. I’ve researched both here and the web in general but nothing I have found has helped resolve this. The BSOD's indicate the following reasons - IRQLNOTLESSOREQUAL - PAGEFAULTINNONPAGEDAREA - PFNLISTCORRUPT - MEMORYMANAGEMENT. I have recently, maybe the last 3 months or so, added 4GB Crucial Memory (2 x 2GB modules), a SanDisk 128GB SSD from which I now boot and an ASUS LCD Monitor. I have been told that the problem was faulty memory module/s so I called Crucial who have, kindly, taken them back and will send 2 new ones. But guess what, the BSOD's continue. Please help me as I cannot figure this mess out. I have been copying the Windows Has Recovered From A Serious Error messages but they don’t mean a thing to me. Thanks in advance for any help. Regards. Paul

It was Chonos the 2nd. You could certainly try that, particularly lan,chipset and audio drivers. But it wont do any harm to copy the lot.

Aaarrgghhhhh - I have been at this all day. 3 times during reinstallation the PC crashed. Then I got it installed and after a few minutes I got a BSOD. So, I tried to install the original HP Recovery Discs. They failed too. At the moment Im trying one more time to install Windows 7.

I guess this is terminal.

If you're trying to install on an ordinary hard drive then I can only think a failing PSU could be the answer. It works fine for a time then fails and then powers again. I say could as I don't really know but if you keep trying, and it is the PSU failing, then it will eventually take the mobo with it. What do the others think?

"What do others think" At this stage PSU written all over it.

You need to stick with the original OS you got with the PC. As Compatible Drivers will be a problem for the Motherboard. This may be the Problem and why you have so many IRQ's

Morning everyone. Its really getting worse now. Ive been trying for last 2 hours to get it to boot. Various things happen. BSOD's of course, but then when it wants to go into repair mode Ive been getting StartRep.exe Application Error messages. The end of the messages tells me that the memory could not be read. Then, when I tried to install the MoBo drivers off a USB stick I got Windows Modules Installer Stopped Working. !!!

woodchip I tried many times to reinstall the original set up using the HP Recovery Disks that I made when I forst got the PC. It wouldnt do it. I'll go and try again and let you know what happens.

rdave13 I have been trying to reinstall to the SSD HDD. This is one that I added earlier last year. When the various BSOD's and so on happen I dont notice the power going off but then I dont know what I would be looking for, or at, anyway. How could I tell if it is the PSU?

Thanks all.

If you've tried installing win 7 on an ordinary hdd and the ssd and still get the bsod I can't think of anything else but motherboard problems or PSU dipping. Have you got another PSU to at least prove one way or another that it's causing the problem or not. I can't think of anything else.

rdave13 I have an older system that I could butcher. It mightnt be the same wattage. Will that matter? The HP is a 300Watt unit and I think the other one I have is 240Watt.
