Windows 7: Continuous BSOD no matter what (Minidumps and other data included)

Hi. Actually I'm already getting (before installing windows to another hdd) a yellow icon under Other Devices - SM Bus Controller. When opened, it shows the location is PCI bus 0, device 31, function 3. So something with the external GPU? I've installed the latest AMD catalyst control center. I thought a screenshot isn't must since I explained it or you want to see something else in the device manager?

Right click it, select properties, go to the driver tab, look at what drivers are installed Which are probably none, then try clicking update driver, search.

How is the external Graphics connected? Go to display adapters, expand that and tell me what it says.

Hey. I already went for the extra HDD windows installation and soon I've installed all the updates I suppose. You asked how the GPU is installed, clicking the radeon icon in device manager shows PCI bus 1. This screenshot is with the extra HDD hooked in with a fresh install.
update driver->search gives no results with the SM Bus Controller.
The second screenshot is with the original hard drives at the current state. One thing I noticed that why the same drivers are not shown under other devices, just like with the fresh install?

There are no drivers for your Ethernet, your Microphone Pre amp, and whatever USB bus.

It's been a while again, hello! Beforementioned drivers are now okay. The PC started to tricks somewhere in summer after I brought it back to the real owner. I noticed they had installed Chrome (now deleted), which caused problems before according to your analysis. Sfc /scannow is clean but can you find something from the zip file?

Thank you in advance!

I'm not sure what problem you are still having exactly. You have 2 dump files from September, the 8th and 9th. Nothing recently. The 2 dump files have apparently some corruption, apparently as they do not open correctly. Both blame your AMD Graphics, but due to the issues opening them, I can't consider that reliable. Please explain better exactly what is happening since you last posted.

Uninstall Dameon tools, then:

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause of BSOD's.

1. Uninstall Daemon Tools.
2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
- Double click the executable to open it
- Click the button shown below



If the button it is grayed out, as shown in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can just close the window.

Google Update is still in your startup.

Reduce the startup items. Nothing is needed other than your Anti Virus. If you need you Gadgets, you can leave the sidebar in startup.

If you can connect your Laptop to a wired Ethernet connection, try running it without Wireless and Bluetooth enabled.

I've noticed that after resuming from Windows, the Graphics card and processor fan goes too 100% speed for few seconds and after that it takes ~30 seconds to go into dualBIOS mode which is meant in case the system fails to load the "normal settings". After this the system boots rather a bit slower than normally would and it brings back to resuming state, files and programs open. True, I haven't had bluescreens for a while.

Daemon Tools uninstalled and in SPDT the uninstall buttom is grey.

I might try your other tips. I also have another SSD now which I might use tomorrow to do a fresh install..

Thanks for response.
