Windows 7: Frustrating freezing and BSODs

Frustrating freezing and BSODs

Okay, i had a very detailed post about my problem, however my computer decided to delete all my text for some reason, and i REALLY don't feel like typing all of that again. So, this post will pretty much be just a list but still get the point across.

Problems: Computer runs very slow. Computer freezes randomly. Does not want to boot past windows startup except for in safe mode(SOMETIMES). IF IT BOOTS takes and an incredibly long time to get to the desktop (20-45min). Does not want to run programs. Runs EXTREMELY slowly (makes a windows 95 pc look like a speed demon.) Random restarts, restart loops, and shutdowns. Sometimes after turning on it will immediately shut off then turn back on. Keeps recommending windows repair on startup. Wants to run chkdsk, then freezes on it.

Fixes tried: Malware detection programs. Hardware diagnostic programs. registry tools. disk defrags. Driver updates. Windows updates. BIOS update System restore. Windows repair tool. Repair installation (twice). WINDOWS 7 CLEAN INSTALLATION (twice).

Did any of these fix any of the problems? Absolutely not. Exactly the same as the first day it started happening. So not only did I lose all programs and files, but my pc still runs like crap. Also, this is a high end pc under a year old.

ANY help would be EXTREMELY appreciated as this issue is frustrating the hell out of me.

Thanks

Please follow the http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html to provide us with more information.


I can do a somewhat cursory analysis looking at the crash bugcodes: CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION signifies one of two possibilities: A failing hard disk or a virus.
  • Run the long and short tests of SeaTools

  • Run Disk Check with both boxes checked for all HDDs and with Automatically fix file system errors checked for all SSDs. Post back your logs for the checks after finding them using Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log.
    For any drives that do not give the message:
    Windows has checked the file system and found no problems
    run disk check again as above. In other words, if it says:
    Windows has made corrections to the file system
    after running the disk check, run the disk check again.

  • Use the Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper Beta | Microsoft Connect to check for viruses outside Windows.

Okay this may take a while. The only reason I didn't follow the posting instructions is that it quite hard to do basically anything on the computer.

I understand. If you'd like, you could start with the troubleshooting steps I gave and see what turns up. Those steps will be among what I suggest, regardless.

I cannot do anything from the event viewer. This is what I get.

That is odd. Are you sure your Windows 7 install disc is not faulty?
  • Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations.

Realized you may not be able to do that too well through Windows with as slow as things are, so here are the boot instructions for SFC: SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

Here are the results...

X:\Sources>sfc /scannow /offbootdir=d:\ /offwindir=d:\windows
Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

Do you get the same message if you run Event Viewer in elevated mode?
Start Menu -> eventvwr (in Search programs and files); do not hit enter -> right click eventvwr.exe -> Run as administrator
