Windows 7: BSOD occurs consistently within minutes of boot

03 Jan 2013   #1

Windows 7 home premium 64bit
BSOD occurs consistently within minutes of boot


So basically, the problem started this morning, every time i boot I am able to log in for about 15 seconds to half a minute before the included BSOD occurs. throughout the day I have done a system restore point. Prior to the system restore point, i was not able to boot in safe mode, however, i am now able to boot in safe mode which allowed me to conduct a few sfc /scannow which yielded corrupted files which couldn't be patched. i will upload the CBS if needed.

Thanks for any and all help, until i can get this worked out my main computer is completely un-usable.

Probably caused by : portcls.sys ( portcls!GetMaxMapRegisters+5 )

Followup: MachineOwner
Usual causes:
Device driver

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Also, Free up the startup.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept the restart.
Update the following drivers:
Let us know the results.
