Windows 7: Random BSODs and Crashes (in-game/idle/browsing)

Any new dump to be uploaded? If you haven't enabled Minidump for your fresh Windows, you can follow this guide.

Quote:
Go to Start, then Run, then type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Click on the Advanced tab
Click on the Startup and Recovery button
Ensure that "Automatically restart" is unchecked
Under the Write Debugging Information header select "Small memory dump (64 kB)" in the dropdown box
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as "%systemroot%\Minidump" (without the quotes)
Click OK twice to exit the dialogs, then reboot for the changes to take effect.
Next time you'd experience a BSOD, a dump is supposed to be generated. When it's generated, wrap it up in a zip and upload it.

Best Regards,
Frederik.

Also, SFC /SCANNOW didn't find any corrupted files.

Oh, and yes, it is enabled, but no, I don't have any minidump files to upload, since I used the system recovery.

The dump doesn't contain all that much, other than Service Pack 1 isn't installed. It's a good idea to install all the hotfixes, and SP1. When you get the next BSOD, upload the dump again.

Earlier you mentioned you've used the Memory Diagnoser from Windows. It is partly terrible, you should be using Memtest86+ instead, if you haven't already.

You're doing good, I'm sure we'll find a solution.

Thanks. I will run Memtest86+.

Be back in a while.

Help me, please! I was trying to get the memtest to work, then suddenly I was obligated to run a quick chkdsk and it deleted some important files, like devobj.dll, VGUI_Starter.exe, etc, now every time I log in windows, several errors pop up telling me that I'm missing these files (and some more). I can't start Steam.exe, neither Google Chrome (it doesn't open anymore). I had the same error two days ago, but I was tired and just did a fresh install of the Windows (which is the current one). How can I fix it?

Thanks.

@edit Oh, and also, I can't run the System Restore.

Seems like my Windows is all corrupted now, but even if I reinstall it all over again, I will probably have the same issues. I'm so tired... Please, what can I do to fix it?

Forget about it. Just ran SFC /SCANNOW and by what it seems, it is all repaired now.

Also, I haven't got any BSODs until now, except for that one when I couldn't log into Windows. Maybe it is fixed?

Hello Muggie. Seems very odd. You should take a rest for now, you've done good. Let's hope for the best. I'll be online tomorrow, for now I need a little sleep.

If it's fixed, then it's super sweet. Just reply tomorrow afternoon if you experience more problems.

Best Regards,
Frederik.

That's ok, I will wait for your reply.

Just a question:
Are there any "dump files" for crashes? I mean, so that I could send you whenever my games crash. It still crashes everytime.
