Windows 7: Frequent BSOD crashes

As I am new to this thread, I do not know fully what has already been done, so let me know if you have already done a step.

If the fix-its and registry tweaks do not work, you are left with Repair Install.

If that still does not resolve it, Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Steps 1-3 in the second link may be needed for the repair install, as well. I recommend backing up any important data and getting your license keys together prior to doing the repair install or the clean reinstall just in case something unexpected happens. Repair installs usually succeed without loss of data or programs, but it is best to be safe. Steps 3, 6, and 7 in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 may help.

It was a long slow process, but finally the updates all seem to have worked after a repair install. Many thanks for your help. Bob

If you get another crash, post the full Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions
We need to compare it with previous crashes.
Everything seems to be working well now. Will still keep watching for a couple more days, then if all is well I will add more apps. Only crash happened whilst computer baulked whilst repairing .NET Framework. All updates now installed OK.

It seems to be running OK, but I have hardly added any new software to it. I will gradually return some of the apps and see if it remains stable. Have had a couple of BSODs, but think they are related to issues I was having at that time. Had to replace router (ADSL2+ & voip) after being unable to log in to it, and was also having major issues with Nodephone voip at the same time. Since discovered the voip looks like being problem with phone's wireless base station, and the login problem with router may have been a network one, rather than the router. Anyway whilst setting up new router, PC had a funny turn and crashed, but has run perfectly for last few days since then.

Just my recent experience with BSOD.

Random Bsod's and Black screens, rebooting etc. Tried everything on the web except changing hardware, BSOD'S STARTED TO GET WORSE 6+ A DAY (ambient temperature rose seasonally). then as a last resort went into bios and switched off smart fan control and presto no BSOD'S etc, (fan was running at low revs before). Downloaded speedfan and controlled the fan from there as a temporary measure. I realised I had disturbed heatsink a few weeks previous (removed fan for cleaning). Will now have reseat cooler with artic silver. hope this helps. cheers!

Well, it's been a while since I last posted, but still get BSOD crashes, and reports more often than I would expect to. Lately Windows hangs on shutdown. I then let it sit, with no activity on the shutdown screen (no rotating symbol), and it will eventually have a BSOD, or I force it to shutdown by holding the power button. not a good situation to keep going. Can you help again, please? Let me know what to submit on the forum. ps it is an absolutely glorious spring day in Adelaide. You should all be here! (then I'd let you fix my PC before you go for a walk on the beach) EDIT: have added SF diagnosis zip.
