Windows 7: BSOD instantly on entering windows

Ah. Well I assumed that because the mobo can run vista, it could run windows 7, as they can sometimes share the same drivers. I've already run memtest86+ overnight to 8 passes without problems. The latest BIOS update I can find for vista OS is 2008. I will attempt the other 2 stress tests now.

Thanks Arc,

Heya Arc,

I've already ran the memtest86+ for 8 passes a few days ago. The GPU stress test doesn't load properly in safe mode and the CPU worked perfectly for 2 hours under stress.

After spending 4 hours trying to update the BIOS i've given up. I don't have a floppy drive to boot from, when I burn the files to a DVD the EZ-Flash utility claims the .ROM file is not on there (even though it's named exactly the same as what it's asking for) and it can't find AFUDOS on my flash drive. Also the ASUS BIOS update utility that comes with the drivers disk only installs when it's connected to the internet and no tin safe mode.

This is serously beginning to annoy me now...

All the crashdumps have something to do with registry key activity, with the occasional NTFS error. Either something is fouling up - or has fouled up - the registry, or there's some sort of storage problem like a corrupt file system, bad hard drive, or just a storage controller problem with your old motherboard.

I've ran into this thread late so bear with me. If you haven't already, do a CHKDSK /R (fix probs automatically & check bad sectors). Follow that up with running Seatools, all checks except long & advanced.

Sometimes malware like rootkits will operate through registry activity. I recommend running a scan using both the free internet security scan offered by Kaspersky as well as their TDSSKiller. Make sure to only scan; do not permit them to fix/clean/remove infections. If they find anything, report to us in our Security Forum.

One question I'd like to ask: have these symptoms been occurring on only one installation of Windows?

Ok, thanks Vir Gnarus. Running the disk check /repair utility now, then will have a go with Seatools and using the Kaspersky software. In answer to your question, when I was using the computer, before I formatted and reinstalled the OS, it worked perfectly and never had a problem like this (apart from a HDD failure). After reinstalling the OS (Vista OEM) and upgrading ti Windows 7 i installed all the software they required and the computer worked perfectly for about 5 months. Upon booting the computer one afternoon, it loaded to the desktop and blue-screened, when it had been working that morning. Now that I think I do remember the (now) owner saying that they had some phoney email to their new email address with a link that they clicked. Spyware/malware could have downloaded then I suppose and ruined the registry for the next boot.

Heya Vir Gnarus,

Unfortunately, as I can only boot into safe mode, without an internet connection, the security internet scan didn't even load. The chkdsk /r didn't come across any errors. The TDSS killer found some suspicous items. I couldn't run the in-windows seatools but I had a Seatools DOS on a CD from something I was using last year. Below are screeshots from the TDSS killer and the Seatools for DOS (sorry about the picture quality, it's form my phone).

The suspicious items are because they are drivers that aren't signed to prevent forgery. Either they're illegitimate copies of legitimate drivers or they just were never signed to begin with, which is bad business practice. Most of them look like HP printer drivers, with the PML driver also being HP and printer-related, so I wouldn't hold it against them to do something slipshod like that by releasing unsigned drivers. The BS_DEF driver showed up in Google as being related to the ASUS BIOS flash utility driver used to flash BIOS updates. I've seen this bugger cause problems before, but I'm not sure if you just installed this utility to update your BIOS to fix the instability problem or if it's been sitting there this whole time creating them. I'd advise removing it, but I don't think you can do so from safe mode.

As for Seatools, it looks like only the Short DST scan was completed. If there's any other available tests (besides Advanced), please run through those as well.

If you can't seem to get into normal Windows, try Diagnostic Startup. Type msconfig in Start Menu then select Diagnostic Startup and then restart system. If things seem to stabilize now, you can use this opportunity to clean up programs, drivers, and start up that security scan to find potential issues.

I did try installing the ASUS update to flash the BIOS, but it wouldn't install properly in safe mode. I have tried the diagnostic startup approach and the computer still BSOD's soon after arriving to the desktop. I will try a the longer (short, long and accoustic) test on the SeaTools disk I have.

Thanks

Hmm, can you provide your most recent crashdumps?

Sure thing. Crash dumps are attached. After conducting the long test from Seatools, the HDD passed the short and long test with no errors. Do you think a new user account on the OS may help? Or maybe partition the HDD and install the OS on the other half?
