Windows 7: Crashing

30 Jun 2011   #31

Windows 7

Well, as I was collecting the minidumps to send you... it crashed. Guess I'm not out of the woods yet. So the first crash in the attached was game-inspired, the second one occurred just running the minidump software. As you can see, there's only two here -- that's because when I ran CCleaner it was set to delete all minidumps. Any from before though are in the earlier files I posted.

A few other notes:

Regarding the Asus file -- wow, you're good! Deleted!

Regarding Daemon - I checked, but there is no file in the uninstaller with the name Daemon anywhere in it. Not sure where that's coming from!

Finally, I was not able to test the RAM as planned. Turns out the only other RAM I've got is DDR2 and the slots on my mobo are DDR3.

Some other things I should mention: I have no problem with reinstalling Windows 7 if that would help in anyway. I tried installing service pack 1 a week or so ago but it slowed my computer down so badly that I did a system restore to my pre-SP1 days.

OK, I think that's it. As always -- thank you for everything!

Well, bad news. I was wrong. It's not running ANY better. In fact, it's worse -- much worse. It crashed while downloading a file from iTunes and getting a DVD ready to burn. Nothing graphics-intensive, but definitely memory-intensive. I have been trying unsuccessfully for the past half hour just to get into Windows with no luck. In fact, most the times it just gets stuck in an endless cycle of rebooting. I just keep hearing the DVD-ROMs start up... and start up... and start up... if I'm lucky I can get it to the "Starting Windows" screen, where it promptly freezes. Once I got to the login -- and then it restarted. I'm kind of at my wit's end. I'd appreciate any help, but without being able to even get into Windows I'm not sure what other info I can even give.

OK, finally got back into Windows. What a nightmare. What I did after that:

I uninstalled everything that I had installed on the computer in recent weeks. Everything. Then I uninstalled and re-installed everything I could think of. I also turned off the USB Legacy device setting in my BIOS after getting a usbohci.sys BSOD. I put my brother on his game... and it ran flawlessly for about 20 minutes. Usually it crashes in less than 2. And then it crashed. And I got back into Windows and it immediately crashed again. So... <shrug> Here's my latest minidumps.

Windows 7

Hey buddy, some updates from the weekend:

I decided to re-install Windows 7 this weekend (technically, I performed an "upgrade", though obviously it was the same system). Installed all the important Windows updates but not service pack 1. Then I ran through all the things you've told me about up to now. Defrag. Malwarebytes. CCleaner. updated drivers. etc. etc.

The good news: I no longer have those problems when trying to reboot -- i.e., the endless cycle of rebooting without even getting to the Asus screen. It also doesn't seem to be randomly crashing like it was. However, it does still crash. Here's when it's happening now:
1) Whenever I am encoding in DVDShrink, which is free software for shrinking and backing up DVDs. It ran fine the first time after I reinstalled Windows, but has crashed every time after no matter what DVD I try once it hits about 35%. I have used this program for years (including a year with my current PC) without ever having any troubles.
2) I ran a CPU stress test and it crashed about 10 min. in.
3) Every time my brother plays his games, of course.

You are my only hope.
