Windows 7: PC crashing/BSOD when cold booting.

I don't think it's the memory. There doesn't seem to be any of the commonalities of a memory issue other than the BSOD. But, to rule it out, try running Memtest86+. Be sure to get the system to fail before running it an run it for a minimum of 7 passes.

Alright, I'll try that in the morning and leave it running while I'm doing other stuff.

Hmm...I was browsing the internet yesterday for more information about the AODDriver4.1 error I seemed to get cropping up a lot and found an apparent fix for it. I followed the instructions and so far...stable PC. I did perfmon /report and the problem driver no longer shows up, either. The "tv_ConfigMgrErr43" error is still there though.

Can you provide the information you used to fix the AODDriver issue? A link to the site you found the information would be sufficient.

As to the tv_ConfigMgrErr43, did you read: The device, Unknown Device, is reporting "tv_ConfigMgrErr43". - Microsoft Answers ?

Of course! Here we go, it's really easy to do - hopefully others will find it useful.

Event ID 7000 AODdriver4.1 error fix - ATI - Graphic-Displays

And yes, I read that thread. In the end, after updating everything again and uninstalling/reinstalling the apparent unknown device to no avail, I just disabled it. I believe something is fooling Windows into thinking I have something when I don't. It seems to be behaving itself now.

Thanks for the link.

Let us know if you have any more problems. Otherwise, post back in a few days how the system is responding.

This is getting really old really fast...every single time I think it's fixed it throws a completely different BCC code at me and I have to start all over again.

Make sure the hard disk is functioning properly. Hard disks can pass the Windows disk check and still be faulty.
Also, check for viruses and malware:
  • Download and install Malwarebytes, update it, do not start the free trial, and then run a full scan. Also run a full scan with your antivirus software installed on your system. If you do not have antivirus software installed, see the Good and Free system security combination. for better security steps and scanning tools. Make sure to update the security software before running the full scan.

Alright - I used SeaTools, both my hard drives pass the short and long tests. I'm just running scans with Malwarebytes and MSE now.

The scans were fine - I've also reinstalled my graphics drivers (even though when I removed them completely when I first started having problems I still got a BSOD) and pulled out my two oldest sticks of RAM. I tried to run the driver verifier thing too but it just caused my PC to not start up and have to do a repair. I still don't understand how I can do something like say update a driver, it'll be fine for say two or three days and then go back to crashing 5 minutes after booting up again...and it only does it once a day.
