Windows 7: BSOD randomly occurs, including things such as steam and chrome

BSOD randomly occurs, including things such as steam and chrome

Hello, sorry to bother everyone but I am having problems with BSOD, which seem to be occurring randomly after varying amounts of time. It usually occurs when something is about to launch such as a steam game or when I click a link and chrome opens.

I am using windows 64 bit OEM which was installed 6 days ago on my new computer. I have installed every windows update so I don't think there would be an issue there.

In case you need them -

I5 3570k
8GB corsair vengeance 1600 ram
Asus z77 mobo
Intel hd 4000 with 1GB of minimum shared ram allocated to it(waiting for the gtx 670)


I did use a BSOD program to attempt to find out what is causing this issue called 'bluescreen view', however after some googling it has come to my attention that programs such as this are unreliable and report incorrect things.

I have attached the zipped dump file, as requiered and I think that is everything. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thankyou.

Update - Now when I try to boot windows I am faced with errors, then a black screen, then a loading screen. This continues in a loop and never stops. Any help would be great.

EDIT 1 - I can now confirm that windows is crashing when I log in. Windows also crashes when I enter start up repair.

EDIT 2 - Strange, I can now get into windows with no problem, although it does appear to take considerably longer than it did before. I would still appreciate it someone analysed the dump file and could find out the driver that's causing my BSOD'S, thanks.

EDIT 3 - It now appears that every time I open a folder windows explorer crashes, attempts to restart then crashes again. I hope this is all linked to the buggy driver that is casuing the BSOD'S....

Is there anyone actually here that has any form of solution? Any help in the slightest would be hugely appreciated.

I had a shot at attempting to read the dump files myself since no one has responded yet, but it was to no avail. Again, I hope someone will offer assistance soon.

Hi spidernat,
I just had a very simiar issue, I also use the z77,try a fresh install bt set your sata controller in bios to IDE rather than AHCI, I ws chasing this same issue for over a week but that was the fix or me, hope it helps.

PS. once you have insalled you can go back into bios and set the sata mode back to AHCI.

Interesting, I will definitely try this, however I'm still wondering what driver is causing the bsod's. I think I will just do a fresh windows install. Thanks for the advice!

The fresh install fell a little short, during installing windows I got a error stating that certain files were corrupt. I can actuall load windows normally, but on e I type met password into the log in screen windows loads, albeit very slowly, then the screen just turns black. I suspect that there is a driver causing this.
