Windows 7: 3 BSODs in a row...

I am glad you used Memtest. If you do not have a Razor mouse nor a wireless headset and you don't have VNC installed, you can delte ort rename those drivers. I recommend renaming them - just in case.

1. Create a restore point and/or image your system.
2. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers
3. Rename each of those three drivers from XXX.sys to XXX.bak

Reboot and let's see how your system runs. Troubleshooting these issues is a trial process. Unfortunately, usually there is nothing that will point us directly to the cause.

If you have another BSOD after renaming these drivers and updating iostor, turn on Driver Verifier.

Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers


Please follow these instructions to run it.
Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.
If that doesn't work, post back and we'll have to see about fixing the registry entry off-line.

Please upload any BSOD's generated by Driver Verifier.

Very good news. Maybe simply getting rid of those old drivers did the trick. Post back tomorrow and let us know. I hope we can mark this thread as solved and you will have BSOD free computing.
