Windows 7: Constant freezing & BSOD

Constant freezing & BSOD

Hi all,

Before I go off into what is wrong, I would just like to stress that I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to the guts of a computer and the ways in which to go about fixing it, hence my being here.

I clean installed Windows 7 on my Acer Aspire 5735 months ago using a student discount, and I loved it, I then broke my power adaptor so couldn't use it for a few weeks. Having returned to using the computer it was very sluggish, freezing, and BSODing. Seeing as it was relatively empty, I just performed another clean install.

Moments after logging on, my computer will freeze, mouse still able to move, but the taskbar and programs just stop (if I even have time to click anything before it freezes). Sometimes when I am able to log off before it freezes (literally, seconds) it will BSOD then just die.

I read that it could be drivers, so I bought Driver Reviver. Updated drivers, and still nothing. I've tried everything that I'm capable of, and was wondering whether I should just try and reinstall Vista again and forget about Windows 7? It's just that it was working perfectly fine months ago, no hang ups, freezes, or BSODs.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks yowanvista,

I have performed the BSOD dump & system file collection and attached it.

When trying to run perfmon /report I get
"Error:

An error occured while attempting to generate the report.


The system cannot find the path specified."

Is this because I'm in safe mode?

Did a full clean install of Windows 7, and the problem is still there. Does anyone have any idea what's causing it?

Have you had a BSOD since reinstalling??? The .dmp file is dated 10-25 and the info may not be usefull..

I did a clean install today, and it's been running fine for I'd say, 3 hours, then I had a BSOD, and upon restarting, it's crawled to a halt as it did previously. I'll attach another .dmp.

Just to add, it runs fine in safe mode.
