Windows 7: random bsod after power loss

random bsod after power loss

hi all,

i had a power loss during startup last week and since that my system stops with various random BSODs during startup (minidump attached)
i tried launching the systen via any startup options given by pressing F8, checked the HDD using chkdsk and sfc, tried startup repair multiple times and nothing changes at all.
the most common stop screens are 'REFERENCE_BY_POINTER' (0x18), 'IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL' (0xA), 'cng.sys - Address XXXX base at YYYY, DateStamp ZZZZ' (0x8E) and some others like 0x7B, 0xD3 (pcw.sys)

it would be awesome if anyone has an idea what else i could try to fix the system..

These must be updated

How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

4-SPTD.SYS used in alcohol120/daemon tools almost always causes BSOD's.

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads
You can use MagicDisc as an alternative.

Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) Overview

I also would remove PGP

fix these and we can see what is really causing these.

dear ken,

thanks a lot for your suggestions! i will try to follow your advises, but i'm not sure if i can perform all of the actions due to the fact that i can not access the current windows 7 installation at all.
i hope to be able to fix some things via ubuntu, other than that i am afraid i need to do a fresh system setup...

but first, i'm going to try whatever is possible.

again, thanks a lot!
