Windows 7: Multiple (different) BSODs over the past three days from streams/games

Multiple (different) BSODs over the past three days from streams/games

I started getting consistent BSODs about 3 months ago, mostly when playing League of Legends. I did a clean update and install of my graphics card drivers (using DriverSweeper) and it fixed the problem for about a month. Three days ago I started getting BSODs roughly once per day, mostly from watching streams on twitch.tv. I ran Driver Verifier this morning and was able to force one in about 10 minutes. It was a 0x000000d5 (Driver_page_fault_in_freed_special_pool) that pointed to ntfs.sys as being the culprit. Later in the day I got another BSOD while gaming that was a x116 and it mentioned something about the display driver attempted to reset (pointed to dxgkrnl.sys). Note that over the past 3 days I encountered a BSOD 4 times and each time it gave me a different bug check code. Appreciate any help.

Please uninstall Daemon Tools. It uses a driver called sptd.sys which is known to cause BSODs in Windows 7.

 SPTD Removal:

  • Uninstall the software using Add/Remove Programs.
  • Reboot the system.
  • Once the program is uninstalled, run sptd.sys uninstaller to remove the driver from your system.
  • DuplexSecure - Downloads
As an alternative, many people recommend the use of Total Mounter or Magic ISO

 Clean boot
Reduce items at start-up. No software except anti-virus is required plus doing this improves the time for logging into windows:Run the System File Checker that scans the of all protected Windows 7 system files and replaces incorrect corrupted, changed/modified, or damaged versions with the correct versions if possible:

I uninstalled Daemon tools/removed SPTD. Ran chkdsk and it found no errors. Ran SFC and it found no errors. Ran FurMark for 15 minutes and didn't get a blue screen or any artifacts. FurMark said the temps maxed out at 95 C but I was running Speccy at the same time and it topped out at around 88 C. This is after cleaning out the vents with compressed air mind you. When browsing the web, Speccy has my CPU and Motherboard in the high 60's. When I do something more intensive (i.e. stream video) it gets up to the low to mid 80's. My most recent BSOD (4-28) was another x50 pointing towards the ntoskrnl.exe which I know doesn't help much.
