Windows 7: BSOD During Various Tasks

BSOD During Various Tasks

About 2-3 weeks ago I started suddenly getting random, frequent restarts. After some trial and error (including reinstalling Windows 7) and a little research, I determined the most likely (and cheapest to repair) cause was the PSU (which was only 600W). So I replaced it with an 850W and the restarts stopped. It's been ten days since I replaced the PSU. I hadn't yet moved any files from my windows.old file that was created when I reinstalled Windows 7, so I did that about two days ago. I simply moved everything in my old user file to the new one. Otherwise, I copied the Windows/FONTS folder and my Steam applications. All other program files were redownloaded. I then deleted the windows.old folder. Soon after I did all of this, I started experiencing BSODs. I get them while playing Guild Wars 2. I also got one while viewing some flash videos last night. And just recently I got two of them just while browsing the internet. I've noticed on occasion the cursor will freeze or disappear a split second before the screen flashes. Sometimes whatever sound was playing at the time will get stuck and blare out of the speakers.

The BSOD doesn't list a specific reason. It displays: 0x0000001e (0x0000000, 0x0000000, 0x0000000, 0x0000000).

Please let me know if any other info is needed.


EDIT: Since no dump file was generated (and yes, I've followed the instructions on how to enable it), here's a photo of the crash:

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate: x64 (SP1)

Hello Reedus and welcome to Sevenforums.

There's no dumps in your zip, though -- we can enable it manually and gather them manually.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Press Start, in the Search Box type: "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes), press Enter.
* Select the Advanced tab, click on Startup and Recovery Settings.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information headline select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box.
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK till you're out of the dialogue.
* Reboot if changes have been made.


By the looks of the NFO.
