Windows 7: BSOD in WININIT.EXE, only sometimes - why?

BSOD in WININIT.EXE, only sometimes - why?

Hello,
I have serious troubles with a fairly new build and don't find the real problem. I also installed MS Debugging Tools for Windows x64 and it always tells me that the BSOD happens because of a driver fault and within WININIT.EXE. I took out 8 of my 16GB memory because the motherboard seems to have a problem with those. Now it seems to run fairly smoothly. Except that in certain situations the three monitors go black for a short moment. And sometimes they come back on without a problem, sometimes the system ends up in a freeze and finally BSOD. Sometimes it happens several times within the same week, sometimes the system runs fine for a whole month.
I attach the ZIP file of the system data, as described in the BSOD data upload procedure.
Thanks for an answer, look forward to it
Regards
Martin

well, I removed the uploaded data (more out of security reasons than anything else) and I find it very interesting that you send me a message that I didn't upload the data you required - but I did, everything what you described! I also put the Perfmon.html into the same ZIP file to save space - anyway, you didn't look at it anyway, thanks

In the meanwhile I think I solved my problem with a new firmware update of my OCZ 60GB system SSD (2.06 to 2.15). A hassle of itself as it only works with the standard Windows AHCI 1.0 driver, but not with the AMD SATA driver which comes with the ASUS motherboard! (you probably take note of this behaviour for other users)

Seems that the system runs smoothly now, had no BSOD anymore and the jumping window contents especially within the browser windows is gone too. Strange that a SSD firmware can have such an influence on a Windows 7 system

cheers,
Martin

Hardware issues are very common for blue screen errors, so it isn't that surprising that updating the hardware firmware would fix an issue. Sorry you had a negative experience on these forums. Sometimes people helping are a little overworked and miss little things, so try not to let it discourage you from seeking help here again. Let us know if you need further help.

Also, congrats on sorting out your own issue. We always appreciate users on here going through their own debugging steps and finding solutions. Well done!
