Windows 7: Daily Freezes, Random BSODs, no DMP files.

07 May 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Daily Freezes, Random BSODs, no DMP files.

Hey, first of all I want to re-introduce myself. I've earlier had problems with this pc (actually the same as I have now) And you can read about it on the old thread. Random BSOD and freezes daily.

I would very much like you to read this thoroughly due to the problem is quite unique.

To enlighten about the problem, I will start from the very beginning.
Since as long as I can remember having this pc, there has been some issues on it. I basically put these issues into 3 different categories. The first is freezes, the second is random BSODs and the third is the dump/dmp files.

1) First issue, the freezes. This happen one time, after the PC is turned on, no more, no less. but it will happen at least one time. The thing that does seem to trigger it, is using the pc, on a level just above idle. If I e.g. start my pc, log on, and try to install something, it would instantly happen. Here it how it goes. when it freezes, I can't do anything but move my mouse, nothing will work, only my music played in Windows media player keeps on, until it hit the next song, then it stop. If I try to press ALT+CTRL+DELETE what happens may vary, but the most common is it turns over to a blue screen saying "Preparing security options" it might also just turn black, where after it show the message that it could not go to security menu, where after I press OK and the pc run normally until I turn it off, or it crashes by a BSOD. I suspect this to be linked to my SSD, and the BSODs that happens. Sometimes some rare thing happens that makes it delete some stuff such as it forget my Skype username password, steam username password, league of legends password, forget to change my background (Having it switched every 30 sec)

2) Sometimes when the pc have been running for hours, (And after the freeze) the pc might instantly start saying things like "Windows media players file has been corrupted", mess up the sounds to RHRHRHRHRHRHR, and instantly start saying all programs have stopped responding, such as Windows, etc. that might take a little while and then it crashes. After that I can start it up normally, but expect a freeze more, but not a new BSOD before tomorrow.

3) My computer won't create any BSOD files. I'm not sure why this is, (I have done as the instructions said on the main page, but none of it helped, sadly) I've seen suggestions around the internet that it might be something with my SSD to do. (My OS is installed on the SSD)
When the BSODs happen this is the messages I get.
"Collecting data for crash dump ...Initializing disk for crash dump ...
Physical memory dump failed with status 0xC0000010.
Contact your system admin or technical support group for further assistance."
And from there nothing has happen.

In my last thread, I thought the issue was fixed when I reinstalled my windows 7, but this does not seem the be the case, and that's why I suspect that all my problems are linked to my SSD.

I have a Legit version of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, but I got it from a friend, I do not know where I got it from, but it should be genuine, also used the same CD-key to reinstall windows, even with a different CD, downloaded from microsofts website.

I've tried these quite a few things that people suggested, but don't remember them all. The most basic I remember is I've followed the how to set up DMP files that you've posted, I've done memtest, I've SFC /scannow several times, CHKDSK several times, on all my Hard disks.

Thanks in advance.
