Windows 7: BSOD just before password login (fresh Win7)

09 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD just before password login (fresh Win7)


I have installed win7 x64 ultimate several times, and I still get BSD in sporadic manner just before the windows login password

I tried to follow all ur instruction to provide you with the data but I failed completely to make the "perfmon" work. As I have this famous error of the report generate tool is not being able to start I tried all the tricks with user defined ones and disbaling services, still no success.

Though I provided the xml files generated by the perfmon tool anyhow, I guess it has the right information but in different format

dumps, XML, screenshoot are attached

Trials I did:
1- Just after Win installation I didn't get any BSD
2- After installing all drivers and SP1, the BSD started

here is the other info needed:

Dell Inspiron N5110
Win 7 x64 bit Ultimate
Retail version

Brand new laptop
Fresh installation of win 7

Note: in one of the BSD I got a specific file mentioned , athrx.sys
but other BSD didn't have file specified

Thanks for your help
