Dell 1557 Windows 7 Freezes, Event ID 31004, 31004

My laptop starting freezing at random times, sometimes during the Windows startup screen, sometimes when I am running applications. I did notice that when I attempted to play Startcraft 2 demo that problems began.

I have attached the Administrative Events file: Events Errors.

Hi BradnAtlanta,

You may try a 'Clean Boot' to see if that improves performance: How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8

You may also try to Rebuild Performance Counter Library Values: How to manually rebuild Performance Counter Library values

If the issue persists, try updating the drivers of wireless card in the system. This model was shipped with either one of the following adapters: WLAN 1501/1510/1520/1397. You may click Drivers & Downloads | Dell United States to find the updated drivers for the card that is applicable.

If you still experience issues, you may check the 'Wireless card' for any 'Hardware functionality'. If the 'Dell Wireless Utility is installed, you may refer to the following 'article' for detailed steps: Documentation

You may also try using a known-good 'USB wireless adapter' (if available); and check if that makes any difference.

Thanks Saurabh, tried the clean boot already. Have not heard about Rebuild Performance Counter Library Values, what that does or why I would do it...so I would like further conversation before I do that. The WLAN card has the latest driver 5.60.48.35, so that has been done.

Please advise.

Hi BradnAtlanta,

Thank you for the reply.

Event Errors points at issues 'performance strings'. Therefore I suggested the rebuild of 'Performance Counter Library values'. You may 'backup the registry' before attempting these steps; will restore it later, if needed: Registry - Backup and Restore

Performance Counters are used to provide information about how well the operating system or an application, service, or driver is performing. The counter data can help determine system bottlenecks and helps to fine-tune system & application performance. The operating system, network and devices provide counter data that an application can consume to provide users with a graphical view of how well the system is performing.

Windows update logs point at issues with 'Windows Server Update services'. System Update Readiness Tool could be useful System Update Readiness Tool fixes Windows Update errors in Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008
- Please share the SUR logs for analysis

Would also like to know if you ran 'Diagnostics' on the 'WLAN card'; re-installing the drivers would be worth a shot if 'diagnostics' pass.

Hope this helps.

Saruabh, Working on installing the Readiness Tool. As I am attempting to install, the computer if freezing. Having to restart many times. Can I go to the Last Known Good Configuration and attempt something else that might shed some light on what the problem is?

Hi BradnAtlanta,

Please try 'sfc /scannow' and share its report.
You may want to refer to this tutorial for steps on performing the scan: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hope this helps. Do reply with the findings.

This concerns a Win7 ASUS laptop we have. My wife restarts it every night before winding up her day (good), but I just learned she often closes it (putting it into sleep I guess) before it has booted to the login screen. I cannot imagine this is very good, and she's going to be more careful...
