Windows 7: Constant BSOD after previous problems

Constant BSOD after previous problems

Hi all,

Around 5 days ago now I installed a new CPU fan, went to start my PC back up but got no display, I then tried all the obvious things such as resetting the battery and then resetting BIO's to factory defaults but nothing worked, I then remembered that back when I first built the PC I had to change the RAM timings due to me purchasing the wrong sticks of RAM so I did so and the PC started up, however after 2 or so minutes of being on the desktop I received a BSOD. I then decided to reformat and reinstall Windows 7 just to save messing around really as I already had everything backed up however the problem still persisted. I have tried to install the drivers for my graphics card but it literally doesnt let me. It says installation succesful but then they arent actually installed, I have no clue what on earth the problem is. I have also ran a error check on the HD and left Windows Memory Diagnostic running for a good hour or so.

The computer seems to BSOD more often when under stress, for example I managed to download a game (BSOD are much less frequent now that I've reinstalled Windows and reformatted) and I loaded it up, however after around roughly 30 seconds I had another BSOD. This is as far as I've gotten really, I hope someone can help me out here..

Looking into it, give me a few minutes...

You had five memory related blue screens, one hard drive related, and a system related, but these are three months old and probably not relevant. When you reinstalled Windows, did you do a full format or quick format? You may want to try a full format to clean up any bad sectors on the hard drive if you did not do so before.

See Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD to create new minidmp files for future issues.


I am not understanding how five days ago you could reinstall Windows and still have three month old dmp files... Something odd here.

An option if you do not want to do a full format, run an Elevated Command Prompt, and type:
chkdsk /r c:
chkdsk /r d:
etc. for all drives with system files and program files

When asked if you would like to schedule them to run when Windows is restarted, hit the Y key.

It was a full format but there was 2 partitions of the hard drive, didnt think much of it at the time as one was something like 499gb, and the other something like 100mb. Honestly not sure where these 3 month old dumps have come from, maybe a problem with the computers clock after the reformat?

So just to confirm I have no BSOD's for today? If not how close together are the timings on these blue screens? If they are all in the space of a few days im almost certain its the ones from today, something must be wrong with the date set on the pc.

Im in bed on my laptop now but ill do this minidmp thing tommorow for sure.

Thanks man.

The BSODs were all in one day, and all within about five hours of each other, so probably not from recent problems. Also, you will have to wait for two or three blue screens AFTER setting up the minidmps to be created before posting them on here.

Just checked and as suspected the clock on the PC is set to 14/09/2011, so the ones your looking at must be the ones from yesterday. I just havent set the time and date since the reinstallation of windows.

That is odd that it is that far off. Anyway, in regards to your blue screens, a few things you can try...

1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
2. Unplug the power from the wall/surge protector.
3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and drain capacitors.
4. Remove the computer case and then remove all components from the motherboard (graphics card, memory modules, etc. except CPU and CPU fan).
5. Get a can of air and blow the dust out of all slots and off all components, including the ones you have removed.
6. Reseat all peripherals into the motherboard.
7. Put the case back on.
8. Plug the power back in for the computer.
9. Start your computer up.
10. Go into the BIOS and reset to Defaults to reset the CMOS
11. Fix your RAM timings to the most stable timings
12. Save and exit the BIOS and start your computer normally.

Post back if the above makes a difference. If not, I have a few other things we can test.

Was this the CMOS battery that you reset? That may explain your time issue.
