Windows 7: Windows 7 BSOD Problems

03 Sep 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

You do realize that BSOD's freezes and crashing are also caused by general system instability, improper memory settings or even bios voltage settings not being in proper adjustment. These types of problem are often fixed with simple bios settings adjustments.

You seem to always be looking for a driver based problem which is hardly ever the cause of these types of crashes. I've fixed way more crashing problems with bios adjustments than any other way. Of course, being an overclocker these things are very obvious to me but not so obvious to others.

Those dump files are good for pointing to where the problem occured but not so good at finding the actual cause of the crash. Getting rid of a certain driver may fix a problem but will bring up another because a replacement driver will need to found.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Had this problem for over a month. Thought I had fixed it several times. But it always came back.

Now heres the real solution everyone:

Windows 7 has compatibility issues with some Anti-virus vendors. It does not affect everyone, its down to a fluke of hardware I guess.

The solution is simple: Un-install your anti-virus program - then install Windows Security Essentials. Its free from Microsoft & does not cause the BSOD effect that vendor programs do.

I know MS is looking into the issues with other vendors as are the vendors.
So Maybe one day we can all install the anti-virus of our choice.

But for now if you are getting BSOD's all the time & you are sure your hardware is fine then give my solution a go. You have nothing to lose as its free!.
