Windows 7: BSOD/system freeze mainly while gaming

BSOD/system freeze mainly while gaming

Problem mainly began after world of tanks 9.6 update. Reinstalled game no change. Reinstalled windows on formatted SSD, updated all drivers, checked all memory, SSD, video cards, power supplies, peripherals etc...all checked good. Stress tested system, no temp issues or power issues using using CUPID/GPU-Z/FurMark/ etc does not crash doing any benchmark or stress test.

Problem started out with partial freeze during game (sound still works and mouse still works, can access other programs on other monitor for about 10-20sec) then system completely locks up.

After reinstalling everything, system BSODs all the time, but never completes the dump process, it usually freezes @ initializing dump file. It has only actually left a dump file one time. Sometimes it won't crash for hour and others it minutes after reboot and into game. Has only BSOD outside of gaming 1 time and that is when it made it thru the complete dump process. This has been going on for about a month now sporadically but every since I reinstalled everything this weekend, it happens constantly. any help would be greatly appreciated.

All BSOD's have been the same

Hi Mist, Thanks for the reply here is the log.

Also while reviewing everything I've posted I noticed the one and only dump file BSOD I ever got, is a little different than the one I constantly get, so I've attached the one I get constantly, that is where it stays...never completes the dump process.

Also after hours of combing thru the forums yesterday, I found a thread about deleting the wininit.exe file. I did that and things have improved. I was so tired last night but i think it has been ok since. If not it should crash shortly and i'll post.

thanks for the reply.

Thanks for uploading the files.

Wow! Your PC has a lot of problems, but don't worry, we will start with the biggest and work our way to fixing the little stuff too.

The main problem your computer is facing is that it is not loading most of the drivers it needs to at system start-up. This can be fixed relatively easily, follow the steps in the link here: Startup Repair

Let me know how it goes and after running SYSTEM REPAIR - 3x consecutively, post up your ntbtlog.txt

Thanks

I've done as you asked, all 3x reported no problems. I did this several times before I reinstalled windows, and it said the same thing. I have noticed that when I start a game it will start like I've never played it before, with beginners menu, but nothing else i.e. progress is NOT lost. It seems like the SSD may be losing/misplacing things. So I went and ordered a new SSD just in case....

Some good news for you: your latest ntbtlog.txt shows drastic improvement in your driver loads and everything is now loading successfully.

Now please can you do the following in the order that they are given:
  1. Go To: Start > Type: cmd > Press Enter > Type into cmd: chkdsk /r > Press Enter
  2. After this has completed, restart the PC.
  3. Go To: Start > Type: cmd > Press Enter > Type into cmd: SFC /SCANNOW > Press Enter
  4. After this has completed, restart the PC.
  5. Now go to: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions
  6. Follow the instructions and upload a NEW zip file to this thread.
Let me know if you run into any problems.
