Windows 7: Frequent BSODs - 30 to 60 minutes apart

27 Aug 2010   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
Frequent BSODs - 30 to 60 minutes apart

Windows 7 . . .
- x64
- original installed OS on the system
- full retail version

- age of system (hardware) is almost one year (custom built Nov 2009)
- age of OS installation is same as hardware (OS not re-installed)

Everything has been working well for almost a year. Starting about three days ago, my system will barely stay available for 30-60 minutes at a time


Have already tried SFC /SCANNOW.

Please help!!!

Is this one too difficult to figure out?

Does anyone have a clue about this one?

Yup, although the dump isn't entirely helpful. It appears that there is some corruption in the dump, likely by a driver, but the dump did not capture the failure, only the corruption after the fact. Please enable driver verifier, and get us another dump.

Thanks for checking - could not get back into Windows with Verifier ON

Some more clues:

My system appears stable (for at least half a day) after I reloaded my last saved BIOS profile (just thought to give it a try)

When I turn Verifier ON, Windows will not boot
1 - Keep seeing Windows logo and then a quick BSOD before almost showing my desktop or
2 - Windows logo keeps displaying indefinitely or
3 - Disk check is requested then repeat 1 and 2 above

I was only able to get back to Windows during bootup by requesting to load the 'last successful configuration'. Even Safe Mode wouldn't work.

Once I got back into Windows, I created another BSOD file and perfmon report (see attached). I ran Verifier to see if anything had been logged, but there wasn't anything there when I displayed existing settings.

So, I assume there is some driver that is enabled during bootup that is causing my problems.

Do you see any more clues that might help? Thanks for your time!!!

If you enable verifier and you bugcheck, I think you may be right. It's probably useful to do a memtest, Prime95, and FurMark stress tests to verify your hardware really is not showing an issue that could be causing these, but if those pass, you're going to need to take a close look at what you've got installed that would have boot-critical drivers other than the OS itself.

BSODs a few minutes into Archeage
I should start by saying this is a brand new machine. The specs for the machine should be on my profile. When launching Archeage, after getting into the game, I can usually play anywhere from 2-4 minutes before the screen blacks out. The audio usually still in tact, but no mouse pointer. No matter...
