Windows 7: Getting BSOD almost every day now

Getting BSOD almost every day now

When i first purchased the computer it worked fine for maybe 1 week - 4 weeks, then i got the first BSOD. I thought it was just gonna happen one time so i didnt really pay attention to it. Then i asked my mate who has the EXACT same PC as me if he had any BSOD's, he said he had 3 so far.

After that i started getting them more and more often, at the end it was one BSOD every day, and i googled for solution but didnt really find any that actually worked, i tried everything.

Then i kinda panicked and reinstalled Windows 7, after install and a few restarts i got a BSOD... But after i updated drivers etc. it seemed like it was fixed. I got a BSOD a week after, and had 2 more after it.

System specs:

Bought it in a norwegian site, komplett.no

System Manufacturer: MICRO STAR INTERNATIONAL

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 640 Processor, 3000 Mhz, 4 core(s)

Motherboard: MS-7597

RAM: 4 GB

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 768MB 715 Mhz

Sound Driver: Realtek HD Audio Driver, and 4 High Definition Audio Drivers

Resolution: 1920x1080 60hz

HDD: WD Caviar Green 1TB 7200RPM... something like that.



The PC isnt old either, a few months.

Dump attached, please help me

No DMP files included in the upload try this method.




To enable us to 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.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

The problem is that it didnt leave any dump files, i thought the program this forum told me to download would help, didnt understand anything, it just said "1 file(s) copied" so i assumed it had found something and just uploaded it all here. If i get a new BSOD, wich is very likely, ill upload the dump from that.

Sorry for bad english, im from Norway

Since my last post, a thing i didnt tell you is that i entered my BIOS and turned of all power saving, and havent had a BSOD for a few days now, so it MIGHT be fixed. Im not completely sure.

Sorry for always BUMP'ing this thread, but during a match of Heroes of Newerth recently, i kept freezing for 2 - 4 seconds maybe every 1 - 2 minutes. I was constantly afraid i was gonna get BSOD again, and also had a small hope so i can get the dump, but i never got one.

Also i heard a beep after the first freeze, does that mean something?

EDIT: I found out It's the game, sorry for not checking before posting

There, it happened again, after a week, almost 2 weeks. But it wasn't a BSOD, but a hard freeze, i had to press the power button for 4 seconds.

Also i recently used CCleaner to clean my HDD, can that affect anything?

As i said, it lasted WAAAY longer than before, but again, it didnt leave a minidump, even i followed zigzag3143's advice, it still didnt leave any dumps.

Oh, forgot about that, i meant that the PC "lasted" way longer. There was a longer time between the last freeze.
