Windows 7: BSOD and Windows Startup Repair with random crashes

I would also recommend checking your device manager for any devices that are not working well after using Slimdrivers. Automated driver update utilities are not recommended. They often find updates to drivers for different devices than are actually installed on the system being updated. This can cause conflicts and instability.

I have used them myself to test, and I found that they were reliable for most drivers, but caused havoc on a few.


Hardware checks:
  • If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

  • Monitor temperatures during the following tests.
    Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures.
  • Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

    If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Hello, been running under normal operations and have no problem except for a random restart while idle, usually in the middle of the night while the computer is inactive. no bsods at all and system is alot smoother and more stable with the driver updates and recommendations

You sure there are no blue screen crashes in the middle of the night? That behavior is indicative of a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE crash. Please follow the http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html to provide us with the latest crash reports to verify the behavior.

You still have many of the same out of date drivers. Your crashes were all across the board, so I suspect hardware. Have you run through the hardware checks mentioned in my previous post (post #11)?

Hi guys,

Ran into some very serous problems, did two factory restores but managed to lose access to the original partition for the restore, so I did a fresh update with fresh drivers. Turns out the g73jh hates the ATI Drivers from their website so I'm sticking with the stock drivers. And since I did the fresh reinstall and updated drivers have had Zero problems. Will post back on separate thread if I run into anymore problems in the future
Thanks for the help
