Windows 7: CONSTANT blue screens of death

Any idea which of the files from Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 you would need specifically? As I've looked through the text files and they give away rather a lot of personal and irrelevant (ie I know those specific things aren't the cause) info away

Only thing I really need (or use) is the DMP file. Everything else contains too much personal info for my tastes.

ok; glad you share the personal info view

This probably sounds like a dumb question at this stage, but where is the DMP file? I've had the system thing set to output the dump stuff to C:\BSOD for the last ages but that directory is seemingly empty, as is C:\Windows\minidump

Onto today's events...
After not using the troublesome computer for around 12 hours (and it being switched off), I got home and removed the older graphics card and put back in the original one that came with it. I switched on the computer and apart from aero not being allowed to be enabled and no games (well, Saints Row 2 from steam wouldn't start) would run. I went to windows update, anticipating it would want me to install the old nvidia driver that it always wants. It did want to install it, so I let it. Once it had done downloading and installing, it started pestering me to reboot (no BSODs between booting and shutting down, all seemed fine). It reboots, going past the windows flag, going onto the logon screen, I log in, and it looks to be loading everything normally. However, just as Soluto finishes reporting that everything that should have started has started, a BSOD occurs.

attachments:
- The solo image is the photo I took of the screen of today's BSOD
- The zip contains several images of most of the BSODs over the past while (all but one being from between 9th Dec-13th Dec, one being from 25th November) (didn't catch earlier ones as hadn't figured out how to turn off the automatic restart option so ran out of time when trying to take photos)

For win 7 the DMP file should be in c:\windows\minidump, or c:\windows. Not C:\BSOD's.

Sorry but the images wont help as we cant mine their data.

I went into safe mode and waited a while, then shutdown and started normally. waited on the login screen for about 10 minutes, then logged in. Waited nervously for Soluto to finish reporting that everything had started, and, no BSOD... O_o Of course, I guess I should be overjoyed, but I'm mostly just incredibly nervous Aero was working, the 'Windows Updates installed successfully' popup balloon appeared and showed the GT230 driver install was successful... I'm currently running LA Noire (for testing to see if anything crashes, not enjoyment purposes) and it's running just the way it used to. So, no BSOD yet. The GPU fan seems to be running high, but it only went up when I loaded the game, so seems to be normal behaviour. I guess only time will tell, which is rather inconvenient :/

Both those directories seem to be completely devoid of any DMP files, which confuses me a lot, as they should be there

I would re-install Windows, but a lot (around 500GB in my user directory) of my data is on C: and moving the 900GB of used space to the right with GParted and re-assigning it as D: or something to install Windows on a new partition at the front would probably take around 20 uninterrupted hours to shift it, and I can't trust the computer to not crash Hopefully I'll manage to get the 2TB internal drive I need sharpish

rats :/ just as I thought it was fixed, BSOD (detailed IRQL... one again) just occurred. about to hunt around for crash dump file...

update: great (sarcasm), BSOD (generic lots of zeroes one) in safe mode. looks like back to square one

when i pressed the power button after waiting a few minutes after the safe mode BSOD, frantic repetitive medium-volume beeping, presumably BIOS beep stuff. then took three attempts to even get past the BIOS onto the safe mode/boot normally option. started safe mode again, BSOD (SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION with win32k.sys detail given).

it didn't appear to be a proper beep code, just something going wrong, but it didn't happen again.
