Windows 7: Random BSODs and applications crashes on a fresh Win7 install

11 Jan 2012   #11

Windows 7 home Premium 64bit
 
 

Ran on partition D: so far (programmes installed directly in d: root folder, instead of Program Files as by default) and c: as well.

The problem was the C: partition as I couldn't ran chdkisk in windows, because the drive is locked, I chose the option to do it at the next reboot, rebooted and left it run.

The issue was though that this way I couldn't really check what actually happened. After searching I found out that logs are possible to find in the event viewer thanks to Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

D: scan was without problems, 0 bad sectors or errors of the file system.

C: scan - I will have to translate it to EN, which will take some time

E: scan - in progress

Thanks again writhziden for your time.

The issue is though that this way I cannot really check what actually happened. After googling I found out that logs are possible to find in the event viewer following the last post from this thread [Solved] Win7 chkdsk log file location - config-customize - windows-7 but I can only see the results of D: scan in my logs, which was without problems, 0 bad sectors or errors of the file system.

Nothing was logged about the C: system drive and as I wasn't in front of the computer when it rebooted (or crashed, as I described before during chkdisk) I cannot tell whether something was repaired, or if everything was ok. I read that when ran on corrupted disks, the logs are not written.... so is my only solution to stay in front of the screen all the time as it scans c: and wait for a report or BSOD?

Thanks!

Edit: I found the C: log as well, under winninit entry in the same location, I simply started searching by time stamp following the D: disk check, as I ran the C: check immediately after. From the log results for me that Windows adjusted some big files records, I will proceed to the scanning of the last partition and will post full results for all the 3 partitions.
Alright, sounds good. For anyone having similar problems who stumble into this thread, you can get the disk check logs using the following tutorial. Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

Thanks for posting back that you found them and will post them. I'll let you know what I recommend next once I read through them.

Hello

Here are the (not-google) translated logs from the 3 partitions. I run chkdisk on C: twice. Do you see anything abnormal apart from disk C:? Strange that no errors showed on D: while Starcraft is installed precisely there and it had reported corrupted installation files, which was unable to repair. Anyway, in your opinion, should the drive be RMA or can it be trusted? I always thought that only bad sectors could cause such mayhem.

Would you think useful uploading previous dumps (from 5-7 days ago), or there's no more sense in analyzing them? Would you still recommend testing memories overnight? Where all these corrupted file system problems could actually have come from in a 2-days fresh OS?

Thanks a bunch for your help!

Looks like C: was cleaned up. See how it runs and whether you continue to have hard disk related problems.

I would still recommend running the memory tests overnight. Just start Memtest86+ an hour before bed tonight so you can make sure it hasn't stopped before you go to sleep. Then do the Windows memory diagnostics tomorrow night with the same procedure if Memtest86+ comes back clean. If it does not, we will provide further instructions.

Good luck!

Thanks, will repeat the memory test then and report back. Hopefully hard drive will stop crashing, I'm just wondering if it can still be trusted, I hesitate a bit. We'll see thanks again for help.

Hard drive errors are difficult to diagnose. I just had one myself a few days ago, and it came back clean. They can occur on good drives just as easily on bad drives, but they will reoccur on bad drives. Just let it run for a week or two, and if the crashes occur due to NTFS.SYS and you continue to find hard disk errors, the drive is failing.

Best wishes the drive is good and just needed some cleaning.

Thanks writhziden does that mean I'd better run chkdsk every now and then during the 2 weeks? Or just leave it run and once problems reoccur return the disk? Would it make any sense to image the current c: partition should another disaster come to preserve my system image and user files or the risk would be to image a corrupted partition?

As for memories, so far, after 8hrs of memtest86+ tests no errors found, I'll let it run until tonight and then repeat with Win7 utility.

All the best.

I would just run normally for a week, then run chkdsk once a week or after any problems seem to have developed again. As for backing up your system and important files, we recommend doing this on a regular basis whether you have a good or a bad hard drive since computers can be unpredictable at times. Better to have a backup when something unexpected happens (hard drive crash, hard drive corruption, virus, etc.) than lose all your files.

Glad to see you are still going through the steps. Keep us updated. Best wishes!
