Windows 7: BSOD on Win7 shortly after startup, ntoskrnl.exe involved?

10 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64
BSOD on Win7 64 bit shortly after startup, ntoskrnl.exe involved?

-Fresh install of Win7 x64.
-Dell XPS 1640 that originally came with Vista.
-Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T9550 @ 2.66GHz
-7.99GB RAM

-Hardware is probably about 3 years old
-Latest OS installation is 1 day old. I re-installed Windows after having this problem recur for a couple of months.

Other notes are that this problem occurs reliably when I start up for the work day, the BSOD causes the system to restart and then it works fine until shutdown and bootup for the next day. Very rarely occurs during the course of my workday.

Thanks for the input!

Windows Activation:
Your system is still in the activation period. Do you have a license? If not, where were you planning on obtaining your license for it?

Where did you obtain the installation media?

SSD Troubleshooting:
Your crashes are fairly typical of an SSD problem. Do some SSD troubleshooting steps:
  • Make sure the following are up to date:
    • SSD firmware
    • BIOS Version
    • Chipset Drivers
    • Hard disk controller drivers/SATA drivers
    • If you have a Marvell IDE ATA/ATAPI device, make sure the drivers are up to date from the Intel site or Marvell site and not from your motherboard/vendor support site.

  • Try doing a power cycle of the SSD. The following steps should be carried out and take ~1 hour to complete.
    1. Power off the system.
    2. Remove all power supplies (ac adapter then battery for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and drain all components of power.
    4. Reconnect all power supplies (battery then ac adapter for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
    5. Turn on the system and enter the BIOS (see your manual for the steps to enter the BIOS)
    6. Let the computer remain in the BIOS for 20 minutes.
    7. Follow steps 1-3 and physically remove the SSD from the system by disconnecting the cables for a desktop or disconnecting the drive from the junction for a laptop.
    8. Leave the drive disconnected for 30 seconds to let all power drain from it.
    9. Replace the drive connection(s) and then do steps 4-8 again.
    10. Repeat steps 1-4.
    11. Start your computer normally and run Windows.

    The above steps were a result of: Why did my SSD "disappear" from my system? - Crucial Community

    While that may not be your drive, a power cycle should be the same on all SSD drives. See how the system responds after the SSD power cycle.
