Windows 7: BSOD at random times

10 Jun 2012   #31

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

i tried running the sfc and i couldnt get anywhere with it it kept saying
Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.
i kept trying until i got this
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example
so i tried again and it wouldnt finished the scan it would stop at different %'s
the cbs files is the one that found corrupt files and the sfcdetails is the last scan i did
i start doing the other steps you gave me

If SFC /SCANNOW will not even finish, I would suggest a Repair Install.

Do steps 1-3 and 5-7 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to get installation media if needed, backup the system, and get any license keys in case the repair install does not complete for some reason.

Graphics card site: ATI Catalyst

You should install in this order:
  1. Antivirus software
  2. Graphics drivers from your Graphics card site
  3. Chipset Drivers from your Motherboard Support Site
  4. Audio Drivers from your Motherboard Support Site
ok I'll do a clean install and do i follow the same order you gave me earlier?

Yes. Also, check that your installation media is not damaged. You may also want to try downloading a fresh copy: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 gives steps to get a fresh copy of the Windows 7 installation media.

Older versions of ASACPI.SYS are a known BSOD problem on Windows 7. Update the driver by:
  1. Going to the Asus motherboard support site
    When you reach the website:
  2. Scroll down the page and click Utilities
  3. Hold Ctrl and press f (ctrl+f) to enter the browser's find feature
  4. Search for "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit" (without quotes)
  5. Download and install the driver.
  6. After installation is complete, verify that it installed correctly.
    • Click Start Menu
    • Click My Computer
    • Go to C:\WIndows\System32\drivers\
    • Verify that the ASACPI.SYS file is dated 2009 or newer (2010,etc.)

You have two mismatched memory modules. I would advise removing one or the other and seeing if the system is then stable.

As you add and remove hardware, follow these steps for ESD safety:
  1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
  2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
  3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
  4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working. If you do not have an anti-static workbench, desk, or pad, you can use your computer tower/case by finding a metal hold in it, such as a drive bay.
Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.
