Windows 7: Random BSOD if anyone can help

Random BSOD if anyone can help

I've been getting random BSODs, and I dont know why. Ive done a fresh reinstall of my OS, but nothing changed. The BSOD occurs when Windows is starting up and the 4 dots come together to make the Windows loading page. The BSOD flashes too quick to be read also. The problem is that it only occurs about 1/4 of the time, and I do a computer startup every morning. When the BSOD does occur it reoccurs a couple of more time then stops and acts like everything is fine. All hardware works, everything seems fine.

Try updating your creative labs device.

The current driver isn't registered properly.

If you could take a moment and do the following as well, it would help get some more minidumps if the crashes keep happening. Despite your claim to the frequency there were only 2 minidumps included the most recent from the 8th.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header
Select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

You aren't creating new memory dumps during these crashes so I have no new information to go on.

Do me a favor manually go to c:\windows\minidump
Are there more than 2 files there?
Are any of them within the last couple of days?
IF the answer is yes, please just zip and attach those.

Well that driver was all I saw in the couple you had.

Something else to verify . Make sure you DO NOT have driver verifier enabled. It causes a lot of pointless crashes and is only for debugging.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
If it's already disabled, never mind no need to start it atm.
Another thing if you get anymore bsod's give it a couple of minutes to write the memory dump before you do the restart.
