Windows 7: Many different BSODs after reinstall becomes freezes

Many different BSODs after reinstall becomes freezes

Hello. My case is really complicated, I'll try explain it as simple as possible, but please do not hesitate to ask me if I describe something wrong. I'm not a newbie in custom build PC but have no idea what is wrong and how to check/confirm my hardware failure.

The whole system is not the new one, about 2-3 years, built by myself like always. It works fine, sometimes I got some freezes and game crashes, what was gone when I switched from XP32 to W7 64 bit with 4 GB RAM. Couple of months ago I started to see BSODs exposed atikpmg.sys as cause of troubles. I re-installed graphics drivers many times, updating to new ones, reinstal the whole Windows system, problems still occurred - still occasionally. Unfortunately I didn't make BSOD snapshot at this moment. I decided to purchase new graphics card, hdd and some more RAM modules, but for a while leave system intact experiencing BSODs with no clue how to reproduce it.

Yesterday I decided to exchange my GPU. I connect 1 brand new HDD, rest hdds was disconnected during install, new GPU, new memory modules (2x8GB Patriot), install windows 7 64 home premium, all windows updates and new display card driver (NVIDIA 320 which is BETA for today) - in this order, and still I experience complete freezes of system and have to reset it constantly. First freezes I got before all updates were installed, also once or two times after updates but before display driver installation. Additionally during writing this post I got (twice) black screen and popup, that display driver stop to respond but recovered.

My Power Unit is Xilence 700 W, memory was tested by MemTest86+ for 6 hours.

How can I discover what is wrong with my hardware if brand new installation of windows system have problems even to install display drivers without crash?

I attached SF Diag Tool output in case it can be helpful - it is made on fresh windows instance.

There are no dump files in your post:
Please reconfigure windows to collect the correct info
You want small memory dumps - "MiniDumps"

And here are the instructions for posting:

Ensure you click the "GRAB ALL" button and then wait for each window to appear in turn and then click OK

Yep, you are right - there is no dump file cause after reinstall my BSODs changes to complete freezes - no HDD led blinks, no reaction to Caps Lock, Ctrl_Alt_Del for several minutes. I have to reset or turn off the computer.

Have you tried to boot into safe mode?

If you can boot into safe mode:

Run SFC to check the integrity of all Windows 7 system files:
  • Click on Start > Type in search cmd
    Right-click cmd after results are displayed and Run as Administrator
    Type SFC /scannow at the prompt
    (Note: There is a space between SFC and /scannow)
SFC Tutorial

Note   Note
Select option two. If any problems are found, run the scan 3 times and immediately
reboot the computer after each scan.
