Windows 7: Constant Random BSOD

Constant Random BSOD

Hi there

Been having BSOD issues over the last day on a new laptop. It was initially when I went onto the internet, but it seems okay now. But there is still the random one every now and then for no reason. I got rid of my Norton and replaced it with MSE as I read a few times to do.

Another thing that's started happening is constant messages coming up of programs/processes stopping, e.g. 'host process for Windows Services has stopped running' and much more. Plus, earlier today I kept having 'Aw, Snap!' on Chrome very often, which I'm guessing is related to whatever issue I have...

Also, after testing with Memtest86+, there were millions of errors, so clearly there's a RAM issue. Unsure on what to do though.

- Windows 7 Home Prem OA
∑ x64
∑ OEM
∑ Bought 3/4 weeks ago brand new
- AMD Dual Core E450
- 1.65GHz, RAM 4GB
∑ E2 Vision AMD


Model is Samsung RV515. Cheers for any help, driving me mad.

Welcome to the forum.

Your dumps come with various issues.

First update your network adapter drivers to the most latest version.

Since you're under warranty, you should go back and get the memory sticks replaced.

For a fresh start follow steps in these tutorials:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
Clean Install Windows 7
Clean Up Factory Bloatware

Keep us posted of what you've done.

Thank you very much kk. I've arranged for a pickup & repair with the manufacturers, so that should be sorted within a week or so.

I did! All working fine now. Had some other problems when I got it back when trying to install MSE and do Windows Updates, but I did a Windows Upgrade/repair and it's all good now.

Cheers again for the help!
