Windows 7: BSOD and computer freeze ups.

BSOD and computer freeze ups.

Hi! I have an Alienware M11x R3, it ran fine and never had any problems except for one BSOD a long time ago which was diagnosed and was just a freak thing. However I moved, I'm now in a old run down home that was built in the 1940's, old electric wiring and no ground. I know that's a bad combination with a computer so I've not been using my PC's (have a $5,000 gaming desktop I can't use...), though I have school that's on my PC and come on who can get by without a PC at all? So I've been using my M11x to get by, was told laptops were fine without a ground... well I've had two laptops die already (other family members PC's) and they all went the same way. WiFi would act weird (would stop working and require a restart, wired wouldn't work either), the hard drives would start going really slow and get nosier, lot's of freeze ups and BSODS, along with several other weird little problems. My guess is that it's the build up static electricity that can't be disposed of by the ground accompanied by power fluctuations and brown outs that killed them. The hard drive in one is now 100% dead, tried every method that I know and it seems I'll have to send it in to a HDD recovery company, the other had a LOT of it's data totally scrambled (corrupted). Now these symptoms have started on my M11x, exact same stuff as the other PC's, I'd also like to note I've gone through 3 power supplies in 8 months. So my cousin who is renting the house agreed to pay for the damage if I can prove it (apparently two dead within a week of the same symptoms wasn't enough) so I'm posting my BSOD files and if you guys can check them out and help me prove the problem then I'll be rocking a new Alienware 13. If I've left anything out or if you need more details please just let me know and I'll gladly provide all I can.

Just a note, I've been working on computers since I was 12 and have done just about everything imaginable with them and also have a very extensive knowledge of various OS's. Just wanted to say that so that it's known I'm very far from clueless about PC's.

Oh also forgot to mention I've had a really weird problem recently where error messages pop up and before I can fully read them the screen goes completely black. I can still see the mouse pointer though and I've managed to blindly guess myself to the restart button and trigger a restart (rather than force it off). A few windows might show (fairly rare) but it's just an outline and is totally black. And yes I've done several full system virus scans. Just thought I'd mention this problem to. Appreciate the help!

The driver causing your BSOD is your nividia high def audio device. NVIDIA DRIVERS 1.00.00.59WHQL
Thats an upgrade for it. It should fix the problem i think.

Hey Laith! Thanks for looking into it! I always update my drivers as soon as Geforce Experience alerts me, don't know why that would be a problem. None the less I downloaded the file and am installing now. Any proof that my hardware is at fault in the BSOD reports? Thanks again!

Since I posted earlier my PC has had a bunch of quick freezes (one complete system lock up also) and is running incredibly slow. Made sure all that was running was STEAM and Spotify, still took over a minute for my browser to start. I've also had to reset its WiFi several dozen times at least (not over exaggerating). Any ideas? I've tried all the trouble shooting I can think of, my guess is it's hardware failure. Did anything else show in the BSOD reports?

My laptop specs if it helps, i5 2537M, 1GB GT 540M, 6GB DDR3, 1TB Seagate SSHD.

Maybe, Try running memtest RAM - Test with Memtest86+
to see if your RAM is failing.

Ran Memtest not to long ago and did 4 passes with 0 errors. I'll run it all night again though just to be sure.

The RAM test I did came up with no errors.

Check your harddrive with SeaTools for DOS or Windows
