Windows 7: Random BSOD crashes, possible related to windows file corruption

Random BSOD crashes, possible related to windows file corruption


My laptop tild with an BSOD now and then, I somehow pinpointed the problem to the AudioEndpointBuilder service after the sound stop working, so I disabled the service but now I don't have any sound (as expected). It hasn't resolved all the BSOD problem but now aren't that frequent.

I have ran sfc /scannow (attached), found some files are corrupted that windows can't repair it. Also chkdsk with no results. I checked out the official iso of windows for the files to replace them but I can't find them. I tried to reinstall windows and the installation ended with "corruption of the installation files" error (lol, Im installing with an USB and the iso have the md5 correct, used official iso, there are in some other post in 7forums, same version as installed and the usb helper of the microsoft shop) so even that I can't do to repair my pc.

I will include the BSOD as the sticky post suggest.

Thanks for any help

Hi all, Thanks in advance for reading; any help is appreciated. Experienced several BSODs during the past few weeks. A few separate "explanations" for the crash shown on the blue screens may suggest a memory problem: "SPECIAL_POOL_DETECTED_MEMORY_CORRUPTION" "BAD_POOL_HEADER"...
