Re: [WIN7] BSOD and the Minidump... how to analyze it?
Sometimes, it may take hours for a MemTest86+ test to turn up problems. One pass is not necessarily enough, multiple passes running for 24 hours (or more) may be necessary.
I'm going to run it now and let it run throughout the night... I'll let you know tomorrow if anythings up... I really appreciate your suggestions guys!
running now - downloaded the latest version of memtest86+ for 64 bit pc's... v. 4.20
I'll be in touch - already well into it's 1st pass - nothing noted in the rror column
I've often seen tests that won't indicate failure until well into multiple tests. I saw a test that didn't fail until the RAM was at a certain temperature which of course was only after multiple tests.
Temperature of the RAM can make the difference just like CPUs can fail when they are running too hot.--

Also, if problems persist consider updating the BIOS to the latest version.
The present BIOS version, according to the minidump file, is 0906:
kd> !sysinfo machineid
Machine ID Information [From Smbios 2.7, DMIVersion 39, Size=3886]
BiosMajorRelease = 4
BiosMinorRelease = 6
BiosVendor = American Megatrends Inc.
BiosVersion = 0906
BiosReleaseDate = 03/26/2012
SystemManufacturer = System manufacturer
SystemProductName = System Product Name
SystemFamily = To be filled by O.E.M.
SystemVersion = System Version
SystemSKU = SKU
BaseBoardManufacturer = ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC.
BaseBoardProduct = P8Z77-V DELUXE
BaseBoardVersion = Rev 1.xx
The latest version appears to be 1709 and several of the more recent updates address stability.
You have a point re: the BIOS. Memtest has been running for almost 8 hours - still no errors...
Memtest has been running for over 16 hours now - no errors... gonna update the BIOS after I let the program run until the full 24 hours has come and gone...
Well - it ran for 24 hours - 7 complete passes... I then updated the BIOS to the latest version, opened Studio 16 and every other program I could - let it sit for about 50 minutes - no issues... then I started to edit some video on the timeline and BAM! BSOD. I've attached the latest Minidump file - any ideas?--
No errors on memtest...
I did some checking on my intel SSD and it's listed in the Device Manager as a SCSI disc... should've I changed that to AHCI in the BIOS before I installed Windows?
