Windows 7: BSOD after boot splash screen 0x1000007E

BSOD after boot splash screen 0x1000007E

So i recently purchased a graphics card and fitted it. Installed all the drivers and the pc had been working fine for a week. One morning i go to turn it on and i get a bsod error with 0x1000007E. This happens every time i boot. I was able to go into safe mode, Uninstalled graphics and soundcard drivers aswell as uninstalling avast. Still the errors. Now i cant even boot into safe mode without it BSOD or freezing. I've run system repair, Run chkdsk /r and still no luck. I have no idea what the cause is! I get the same error with one of my 4gb sticks in. I've run memtest on them without errors so i have no idea!

The BSoD was caused by aswTdi.SYS (Avast!)
Are you sure your computer has no remnants of Avast! ?

Use Driver Sweeper ,look for any driver remnants of Avast! and remove them.

Windows boot splash screen not working in W7 Pro
Hi all I had to do a "Windows repair" boot on a W7 X-86 W7 Pro machine. Now when I boot it up I get the boring "Vista" like blank screen with the Microsoft Bar instead of the nice "W7 Windows starting " with the spinning W7 cube. It's not a major issue but is this "fixable" easily. ...
