Windows 7: BSOD on startup, except when system allowed to sit for a while

BSOD on startup, except when system allowed to sit for a while


I keep getting a BSOD on start-up into Windows 7. The BSOD will pop up when I interact with the computer while it's still finishing up the loading/boot-up process -- that is, while the HD is still making noise even though I see the desktop. If I let the computer sit for a while, then it seems to be stable.

I'd appreciate any help with the issue! Thanks!

The SystemInfo.txt file seems to be missing, please open a Elevated Command Prompt, and then type the following command:

Upload and attach the file in your next post using - Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

The file will be saved at the location specified, close the Windows or type Exit when the command has completed.

Your Intel Rapid Storage driver seems to be a possible cause, and every outdated, please update to the lastest version from here - Intel® Driver Update Utility

If no updates are available, or the problems still persist with that driver then remove using these steps:

  1. Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
  2. It will open the "computer management" window.
  3. Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
  4. Expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
  5. Select one Intel device item under it, right click, uninstall.
  6. Continue the process for all Intel items under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
  7. Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate native system driver.
Update BIOS (if possible):

BIOS Version/Date	Award Software International, Inc. F3, 7/31/2009
2: kd> !sysinfo machineid
Machine ID Information [From Smbios 2.4, DMIVersion 36, Size=1187]
BiosVendor = Award Software International, Inc.
BiosVersion = F3
BiosReleaseDate = 07/31/2009
SystemManufacturer = Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
SystemProductName = P55M-UD2
SystemFamily =  
SystemVersion =  
SystemSKU =  
BaseBoardManufacturer = Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
BaseBoardProduct = P55M-UD2
BaseBoardVersion = x.x
I would also run full scans with any AV suite you have and with Malwarebytes.
