It crashes, when the disk starts phase 2 gathering folders, information etc.

Edit: PdiPorts.sys should be up to date now.

This could actually be something wrong with the disc rather than your system. Try burning another disc and trying the repair install again.

Either it crashes instantaneously at 1-2% or it tells that i'm missing files and stops the installation. I've already downloaded and burned the iso file again for 3-4 times and it's still missing files every time i try to install.

A fix I've seen is taking all sticks of memory out but one and then trying the repair install.

Do you get some sort of error message or code? If so, can you please take a picture or write it down?

This error comes with the ISO files:

"Windows cannot copy files required for installation. The files may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation."
Error code = 0x80070017.
I'm starting to think that maybe the DVD drive itself is defective and causing some of these problems, last time i wandered through the event viewer i saw some DVD drive errors there, but that was about a week ago.

There is another crash with the ISO's, but the above one is the most common. The other crash occurs with pretty much everything, which needs to run more than say 15-20 minutes, whether i'm installing windows, browsing or trying to do a full MSE scan of the system.

That error code refers to either bad media or a faulty DVD drive. Do you have another drive in your computer? If not, do you have one that you can temporarily transfer from another computer?

Unfortunately i don't have any extra hardware, besides an old graphcis card(which i haven't tried yet). It seems some of these issues could be very well related to the hardware, since stress tests will only show that much.

One last go at the reinstall before:
i will try to format the machine again, if something goes wrong, then so be it. It's near impossible to operate any programs atm( for over an hour without a blue screen, not to mention the chronic appcrashes), so it doesn't make much difference anyway.

If all goes well, i'll only install a LAN driver, so i can keep up you up to date here. If the chronic crashes start again with a minimum amount of drivers installed, then it's time to start swapping hardware i guess.

I've also accumulated a lot of dumps in the past few days:

The dumps for the most part point to hardware errors originating from either the memory or the CPU or system drivers.

Before you go ahead with the clean install. Try isolating your RAM (removing all but one stick) and booting the computer. Use your computer as you normally would for 15 or so minutes and see if you get any BSOD's.

Alright, i've switched the memstick to the one which mdsched detected having problems with, and guess what? I haven't seen a single crash for 4-5 hours now. I will keep you posted with the developments(will prolly post tomorrow again). I will try to reinstall my windows with the original cd i got, since appcrashes and BSOD's seem to have ceased with everything i'm using, at least for the moment.

Hi all, been getting BSODs more and more frequently these days, most notably when I'm using chrome or playing D3. The error shown is usually either SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION or DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Could this be due to bad RAM? I've had this computer for nearly 2 years now.
