Windows 7: another BSOD after re-installing w7

I would have to say that thundertjE's analysis is spot-on - the ATI driver running inside dwm.exe is causing the exception, and since it's a system service (transitioning from non-privileged code, aka user-mode, to privileged code, aka kernel-mode), it cannot cause an exception without causing the computer to bugcheck during this transition period:

nope. not yet, anyway. though my screen does shake violently when fading in/out of windows (like in startup and shutdown). could there be a particular reason for this? it did also happen when i had 10.12 installed btw

oh, an expert

Hello Nighthawk4, what do you mean by shaking violently? Which tool did you use for remove your previous drivers?

i just went to control panel > remove program > ATI Catalyst Install Manager.

in the other thread someone said i needed to remove all traces with Disksweeper, but that made my pc unable to boot, so i don't think i should try that again

and what i mean by shaking violently; when windows fades from "welcome" to your desktop, the whole screen shakes 2cm to the left, then 2cm to the right every 0.2 seconds (or so), until the desktop has fully faded in.

In my opinion, it seems to be a driver related problem and probably, during uninstalling, some traces of 10.12 drivers files just remained. I would advice you to make all the BSOD proceedure again by creating the dumps folder and perfmon /report again. Then, post it here and an analyst will analyze it again, checking if it blames the same file.

Edit: By the way, did you use Driver Sweeper on some proper way?

Quote:
How to use ?

There are two methods to use Driver Sweeper.
Both methods achieve the same results. This method is always able to clean all files.

This method will delete remaining files upon reboot (if deleting failed). You can clean your drivers this way:

Use the official uninstaller(s) of the driver(s) you want to uninstall.
Reboot your PC in Safe Mode.
Run Driver Sweeper and select what to clean.
Analyse lists all the entries possible to remove, cleaning removes the entries selected.
More drivers can be selected for the same cleaning process.

hmm no, i uninstalled my driver, then ran driversweeper which deleted the files on the next reboot. then my pc wouldn't start up anymore. i'll try this though.

It seems that your graphics card is synchronizing the image with your display. But it shouldn't happen, to be honest, and as I understand, you never had it right? I still suspect it has to be with the drivers removal, but I actually can't be sure.
