Windows 7: Win 7 Pro - OK in safe mode, instant BSoD in Normal Start

With everything unchecked it is now BSoD even into Safe Mode.
I have a feeling this has to do w/the HD installed via PATA / USB adapter. The HD is not connected but it is the only thing that has changed.
I suppose it could be the memory. It would be nice to be able to boot into safe mode!!!!

Edit: only MS services checked, no programs checked to startup....and I can't get into safemode. System repair does not work. System restore says it worked but it's been 'starting windows' for 5 minutes now.

You have 2X3 TB Seagate that you use as mirror? How it is set? Using RAID?

The latest situation (BSOD in safe mode too) gives a good idea that it is not a driver that is causing the BSOD. So it may be any hardware. If RAID is used for mirroring, that is also a suspect.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Test the HDDs (not the SSD).

The 2 3tbs are mirrored in disk mgmt. No hardware or software utility except for Windows.
Will you look at the new dump file please?
I will memtest it.

EDIT I just noticed in device manager that the mirrored drives say
Online - resynching
One of the right click options is 'reactivate'.

There is no crash dump after 01.08, unfortunately. Possibly those ones failed to be recorded.

If you dont use the mirror system (as a test at least), does it BSOD in the same way?

I don't understand what you mean. Do you want me to make the disks offline in disk mgmt and then test the system?

This problem has somehow solved itself. I updated the catalyst software (CCC) but the PC still BSoD'. I shut it down and booted it back up a couple times and eventually it decided it would boot....the windows raid system rebuilt itself and it's been running since.
I have not shut it down though....bizarre.

Too funny. I look over and the screen saver has frozen. Locked up again. BSoD on system repair. OY

I WILL ALSO SAY....that the last driver to ever load, and sometimes it will be before a hang, is ahcix64s.sys

But maybe that is normal......
