Windows 7: Win 7 Crashing intermittently

Win 7 Crashing intermittently

I have a Win 7 Ultimate installed on my desktop whose specs are in my profile.
The BIG problem now happening for months now is Win 7 crashing & rebooting. In the midst the system travels from a brilliant visual on the screen to a screen full of darkness...

I have tried various things (see below) to diagnose what is wrong but to no avail.
- Run cleanup utilities like Ccleaner, Glary Utilities and Privacy & Registry Cleaner to clear junk, cleanup Registry.
- Ran Virus/Spyware/Malware Utils in full scan mode to check & clean my PC. I use Avira, MSE & IObit Security 360.
- Ran Memory diagnostic to find no errors.
- Ran Win 7 Troubleshooting
- I ran SF diagnostic Tool recommended by this forum and the attachment is sent with this thread.

As mentioned the reboot is automatic and happens while I am playing games, running a scan & so on... I have even turned off Automatic restart on System Error error via 7 "Startup & Recovery" dialog within System Properties.

Early help will be much appreciated...

Love to help but no DMP's in file try this method.


If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.
