Windows 7: BSOD while playing games, then BSOD more.

BSOD while playing games, then BSOD more.

System Specs:
  • ACPI x64 based PC
  • WDC WD10EARS-00MVWB0
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti
  • TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S223C
  • Intel i7 2600k

My computer screen suddenly blinked this morning, then it recovered and I didn't mind it. Then, when I was playing LoL, this problem kept persisting. The screen blinked on and off probably six to seven times, then it recovered again. A few hours later it blinked again and it suddenly restarted. After that, I could log-in, but then the screen was black, without even a mouse pointer. A few mins later my desktop miraculously appeared, and then it blinked and restarted itself again.

Current steps I've taken:

Last Known Good Configuration (after about three times of repeated auto-restarts)
Uninstalled AVG

I am currently running in safe mode + networking.

Hi,
The installation is non-genuine.
The Key is that of the Lenovo Stolen Key 22TKD-F8XX6-YG69F-9M66D-PMJBM which is blocked from activation and validation by Microsoft.




The best course of action is to:
  • Purchase a legitimate Windows 7 licence.
  • Format the HDD.
  • Reinstall Windows and activate.

TIL my windows copy is pirated. Now I know why my custom PC designer didn't provide me the original windows 7 disk after installation. Thanks man.

Just a question. Do I need to back up my files on the HDD before reformatting?

If you have any personal files, data etc then I would say Yes, if not then just format.

After reformatting and installing Windows 7, run Windows Update and install all updates and Win 7 SP1.

Then if you experience any further BSOD's, please post up new logs and we
will be happy to help once the installation has been verified as genuine.

Cheers
