Windows 7: BSOD Keeps Happening Every Night.

BSOD Keeps Happening Every Night.

Almost every morning I've woken up to my computer with a message saying it has recovered from a serious error.

I don't know what's causing it.

I have attached dump files from two separate mornings though.


Can anyone try to decipher them to see what's going on?

Hell IsLNdb0i.

Based on the two dumps you uploaded, I may suggest you the following.

1. Uninstall the latest version of nVidia display driver using Driver Fusion, and install an older one, which was stable there.

2. Perform a Disc Check.
  1. Reseat the sata and power.
  2. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  3. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
3. Uninstall Microsoft Security essential and reinstall it, with all the updates.
How to manually uninstall Microsoft Security Essentials 1.0.1963 if you cannot uninstall it by using the Add or Remove Programs item


But, we need some more information. You need to upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.

  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.

Got another two dumps within the last half hour. I'm attaching them here. Can you please take a look at these two new ones as well? The last BSOD had a completely new error:

Well, it is caused by TouchChip USB Kernel Driver (FingerPrint Sensor).

Ah ok, so which of the BSODs / dump files was caused by the TouchChip driver? All of them?

I used Driver Sweeper to completely remove my NVIDIA GeForce drivers and software, THEN I installed the latest ForceWare AND I updated the driver for the TouchChip.

I'll have to use the PC as I was for the next few days to see if I experience the issues still.

So were all those BSODs and dump files caused by the TouchChip driver?

The power state failure one.

The other one wast not specifying anything, but the device driver error is one of all the causes of stop 0x50.

Let us know how it is working now.

Just happened again. Walked near the room and suddenly heard the Windows 7 boot sound which I shouldn't have heard since the PC should have been on, idling.

Went to the PC and the little window was there again, this time saying:
Windows Has Recovered From An Unexpected Shutdown



I have again attached the dump file(s) for this incidence.
