Windows 7: Frequent freezing and CHKDSK at startup

Frequent freezing and CHKDSK at startup

Ok, here's the deal.
First: My Asus laptop running Vista x64 began freezing unusually, when I was doing simple things like saving an image, or nothing in particular. These required a hard reset, and when starting the computer afterward, it suggested running CHKDSK. I did so, but the problems continued with increasing frequency.
Then: I got a Windows 7 upgrade from the offer for college students. It seemed to have fixed the problem, but after maybe a month or two, the same issue started again. This continued with increasing frequency until...
Now: CHKDSK asks to be run on every startup, however it freezes when the countdown reaches 1. After hard resetting a few times from this screen, it skips the countdown and runs CHKDSK. After letting it finish, I am able to use the computer, but it could last anywhere from a couple hours to freezing as soon as I open a program.

I have tried chkdsk /f in the command prompt, but this still freezes when the countdown reaches 1 (and the problem isn't getting chkdsk to run anyway).

Possible cause: It got turned off while installing windows updates back on vista and more recently while defragmenting (I tried twice and both times it froze at 41%)

I've attached the minidump, though I don't know if it's relevant.

What should I do? I've got my files backed up so I'm fine with doing a clean install if you think it'd help. I'd hate to have to take it to someone because I feel like I could just find out what to do online for free and I don't trust that they'd actually fix it.

Do you have the .iso from the upgrade deal?

Do you have the Vista recovery discs - if not , run them off. You might want to reinstall it at some stage.

Also , backup the mbr - you can restore it after installing 7 - you may find that gives you easy access to the recovery partition again.

You can use this freebie for that - and future imaging tasks:

Paragon Backup & Recovery 10 Free Edition

I assume you did upgrades before - try a clean install from boot. During Installation , Select Drive options ( advanced ) and format the partition before installing onto it.

Hi and welcome

Both of these were probably caused by your wifi driver (NETw5s64.sys). Besides that you have a ton of old drivers that need to be updated.

I dont think you need a clean install yet, but frankly it would cure the problems in the least effort.

I would update all the listed drivers.

run a system file check
typs cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow

If these dont cure it. Nuke it and start clean.

let us know if you need help

Thanks for the help guys. I haven't gotten a chance to update the drivers yet, but I ran sfc and found errors or corrupted files that could not be repaired. I'll upload the log now before this freezes up again.
