Windows 7: BSOD at random times

Yes I would try the long generic test.

It could be a loose wire causing the issues but I wouldn't put my money on it.

Let us know how it goes.

Well it pass the long generic test.

1.Shall i go for the driver verifier or have it open up?
2.How about the memtest and not making any passes in so many hours?

It takes a long time for a pass so be patient.
I suggest running it again.

If Memtest finds nothing then yes Driver Verifier is a good idea.


Enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier -Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information

Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.


warning   Warning

Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point Manually before enabling DV.


Tip   Tip
  • If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
  • If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.


Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

That's good news

Any more issues let us know.

If you feel your problem has been resolved then please mark the thread as solved.

It looks like that loose wire might have been the cause.
