Windows 7: Random Freezes/BSOD on Vaio VPCSB running Windows 7 x64 Pro

Random Freezes/BSOD on Vaio VPCSB running Windows 7 x64 Pro

Hello,

My computer is freezing on me completely randomly, and I have no idea what is going on. It has been getting worse lately. I would love some help. Thank you so much!

Windows 7 x64
Original Version that came with my Vaio Laptop.

My laptop is about a 1.5 years old.
I did a "clean" install using a system restore CD I made. I did this about 6 months ago.

Please let me know if there is anything else that you need?

I believe I have followed the directions as indicated. I used verifier overnight to obtain the dmp files.

I should have my computer specs on my profile.

Thank you so much!

I re-attached a new zip file. I did not run the first program as administrator. Thanks.

We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's recently. Here's the information that I've compiled:
Quote:
There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
- Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard!
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.-
Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.
It's my opinion that SSD's aren't reliable enough (with current hardware) to be used on a system that needs to work reliably. Until I see reliability I will not recommend, nor will I use, SSD's for critical applications.
06 Dec 2011 - This post tends to confirm issues with certain SSD chipsets and certain controllers - [SOLVED] cant find the cause of BSOD F4 - Tech Support Forum
Both of the memory dumps blames PeerBlock. Please uninstall and test to see if that stops the BSOD's
Don't forget to turn Driver Verifier off. To do this, select "Delete existing settings" in the first screen after opening the program. Then click on "Finish" and reboot the system.

PowerISO driver (SCDEmu.sys) dates from 2007. Please uninstall it. Should you wish to continue using it, please download an updated copy from the manufacturer's website.

Further info on BSOD error messages available at: http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs:
3RD PARTY DRIVERS PRESENT IN THE DUMP FILES
- Create a System Restore Point prior to doing any of this. DO NOT mess with the drivers themselves - leave the Windows\System32\drivers directory alone unless we specifically direct you to it!
- Please either update the older drivers from the device manufacturer's website - or uninstall them from your system. Reference links are included below.
- DO NOT use Windows Update or the Update Drivers function of Device Manager.
- Please feel free to post back about any drivers that you are having difficulty locating.
- Windows Update exceptions may be noted below for Windows drivers.

Okay , I updated the driver from 2007 by downloading the latest poweriso from their website and reinstalling it.
I have also updated the intel controller drives via directly through the intel website.

However, I am having problems installing the latest firmware for the SSD provided by Crucial's website.

My bios "INSYDEH2O" is detecting the drive as simply 256 gb HD. Not the brand or what not .

I burned the latest iso boot disk for the firmware upgrade for the hard drive, but it will not install the firmware. It simply says that no hard drive is found and skips to a:\

You're gonna have to get tech support from Crucial for this.
I have no clue about SSD's!

And, I've finally resolved the issue.

The firmware on the SSD needed to upgraded to the latest version. Thanks a lot for the help and support !
