BSOD Frustration

On a daily basis, I get the BSOD. It happens when I am on Facebook, playing games like Frontierville or Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

It also happens when I am I am just surfing the internet.

What's going on and how can I fix it???

Hello Professoramy, Welcome to SF!

Your crashes all have different signatures... hard to tell as yet what caused it exactly. Could be drivers, Hardware and maybe temperature.

Please check the following:

1. Run in Safe mode w/ networking Safe Mode

2. If that works ok, run SFC: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker - Windows 7 Forums

3. If that tells you it's ok... it is time to do some testing: RAM - Test with Memtest86+ - Windows 7 Forums

But, before you do all that... please finish all Windows Updates, manually if needed.

Your drivers seem ok except for some doubts I have about the graphical driver.
If you have Catalyst Center installed, de-install fully. Go to Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD and install ONLY the driver for your card.

Good luck and please post back your results...

Here's a link from PC Pitstop. PC Pitstop OverDrive Tests Overview

It ran a diagnostics and the results are at that link.

Does anything look bad here??

No... but frankly, that doesn't tell me anything.... please follow the steps in my previous post... that will sort out the culprit one way or the other...

I would love to do what you've requested I do, however, I don't have a windows disk. Is there a way to do this diagnostic stuff without it?

None of the steps I suggested require a W7 disk?

This is what I got when I clicked for more information about how to do what you want me to do:
How to Check / Repair the Windows System Files from a Command Prompt at Boot
This shows how to start the PC and open a command prompt at boot so the Windows system files can be checked and repaired if possible, if the PC will not start to Windows normally or in safe mode.

Note

For those that are dual/multi booting or if the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) does not 'see' the Windows Operating System needing repair, see Method Two below.




Let's get started!

In the BIOS set the boot order to boot first from the CD/DVD Drive, insert the Windows full version installation DVD or a created repair CD and restart the PC.

Aahhh Ok I see I'm going too fast here... Are you ok with us doing this step by step?
First one is Safe Mode. Did that work? Run in safe mode for at least a day or so. A bummer, I know but it helps to know what happens in standard /simple W7 mode and drivers. Post back results.

Next step was SFC... which I expect will work fine in your Safe Mode way, such that you do not need a disk.

Okay... I got it into safe mode and ran the SFC. I attempted it twice. It hard crashed (ie, no blue screen of death) each time. It was in Safe Mode both times.

Any suggestions now?
