Windows 7: Random BSoDs, mostly ntosknl.exe+7cc40

Thank you for that. I am running a full scan with MWB right now, so we will see how that goes.

It is true that SFC stopped on the first scan, but it had no problem completing a further two. Are you suggesting that there could still be corrupt system files?

p.s. I also see a new 'Attention' banner at the top of the thread re: how to post BSOD issues. I have been following that very 'How To' right along, so am unaware why the banner has just popped up now. Apologies if I have done something wrong, I'm unfamiliar with this forum format, and find aspects of it a little 'new'!

Nothing came out of the full scan on Malwarebytes.

I have to say I am reluctant to do a Windows Repair, esp as there is an open question over whether you understand how the SFC ran when I did it.

Upload any newer dumps, that may help us with the diagnostics

SFC may not have found corrupt system files, so that may not be the issue

I uploaded the latest files in post #9 in this thread/topic. There have been none since then.

re: your second point, I don't understand. Why would I need to do a Repair Install if there are no corrupt system files?

Because SFC cannot always find/fix some system files. Moreover if some drivers are badly installed a Repair install would install 'clean' versions of these drivers.

Hate to say it but this makes little sense to me.

A Windows Repair Install won't fix 3rd party drivers as far as I can tell. How could it?

Am I missing something?

Well, by doing so it will reinstall older generic WHQL drivers for all your hardware devices. Any bad drivers would be removed.
