Windows 7: BSOD Seemingly random, almost every day

BSOD Seemingly random, almost every day

Been getting BSODs a lot lately, whether I am at web pages or just at the desktop, etc. and in my reliability monitor I have video hardware errors. Wondering if my video card is the issue.

I have Windows 7 x64 (downloaded from school website for free) on a system that's only a couple months old.

The 5 most recent are related to sptd.sys. You need to remove that before we can get to the underlying cause (probably scsiport.sys)

Please remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp, called sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure - Downloads DuplexSecure - FAQ

when you're done you can use this Freeware:

MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM
(MagicDisc)

in its place

Using MagicISO to create ISO image files

I used the uninstaller and restarted my computer, now my computer won't start up. It says starting windows, then just has a black screen with my mouse pointer on it. I can move it freely, but that's about all I can do.

You try booting in safe mode (F8)?

From the win 7 dvd?

I scheduled a disk check and restarted, it didn't find anything wrong and restarted, but now it boots up just fine. Not sure what happened.

But back to the other issue, I had Daemon Tools, uninstalled it and thought that would fix the problem. Didn't realize I had to use the SPTD uninstaller. Should I just see if the problems persist and if I get any more BSOD?

As i thought this one dmp was related to scsiport.sys. What scsi devices do you have, and have you re-seated cards, cables, etc?

The only thing I changed was installing a different video card to see if issues persisted with Rift crashing about a month ago. I uninstalled the drivers when I removed it, but other than that nothing has been changed. Right now the computer won't start up again, slow at the beginning and stops at Verifying DMI Pool Data

Seemingly Random BSOD
Hello, I've been dealing with with BSOD for sometime now(came out of nowhere). I now know that my earlier BSOD were most likely caused because of my GPU drivers so I've done a clean install of the current driver version but I'm still getting BSOD at random.

BSOD at seemingly random times, memory dump blaming random drivers
I've been plagued by odd problems since making this custom build about a month ago, but the latest is the increasing frequency of BSODs. They never occur at load (gaming with high end specs), but often occur at shutdown (forcing a restart before I can then actually shut down). I normally boot into...

Hey guys, been having some issues with my machine as of late. I'll have times when I can use it for hours, leave it and come back to find it has restarted after a BSOD. At first the errors seem to be memory related, but all 3 sticks pass memtest without issue. I'm at a loss as to what could be the...
