Windows 7: Win 7 4 BSOD in 7 days

not sure why the SF Diagnostic did not record but it was there for sure. "IRQL_NOT_LESS" BSOD error.

Anyway the HD2 and adapter are disconnected so lets run a bit and see if that was the only problem.

More applications crashing since uninstalling that control card. Excel, Chrome, games. Attaching new SF output.

Same as earlier.



I think you should opt for a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 now. That will at least minimize the possibility of any driver caused BSOD.

Arc, if you are seeing no crashes maybe somehow I am not running SF Diag right? Not BSOD but APPCRASH.

It may be expected that the clean reinstall will make you free from all those.

Before going through that, I ran sfc and received a message that corrupt file found but unable to repair. Can you interpret the attached log and advise? The reason I ask is because once someone helped to identify the exact bad file instead of reinstall. Thanks.

The log says something else.

Excel, Chrome, games .... all are third party applications. SFC /scannow is system file checker. It does not take those stuff into consideration.

information   Information
The sfc /scannow command (System File Checker) scans the integrity of all protected Windows 7 system files and replaces incorrect corrupted, changed/modified, or damaged versions with the correct versions if possible.
Source: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

So it has nothing to do with third party applications. Now you may go for a clean reinstall I guess.

Can you recommend a safe/reliable driver diagnostic I can try to isolate/repair any individual ones which are bad? May be avoid reinstall?


Thanks again for helping me out. I guess if I am forced to reinstall this issue is closed.

Actually there is no driver diagnostic tool that is reliable in true sense. None of them does a real good job.

I am not pushing you to a reinstall; but it is worthy of the time. It will take less time and effort than the possible troubleshooting, particularly in such a clueless situation.

But if you want to try to troubleshoot, I would suggest you to follow Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 ... which eventually ends on a clean reinstall though.

Hi Arc:

I performed a "upgrade" install using my W7 distribution CD today after running chkdsk and stopping all startup and nonbasic services with msdiag. The installer completed successfully and caused a repair of .net 4 before reboot. Perhaps that was my main problem. Prior to this install I updated my graphics driver yesterdsy also.

Is there a good way to learn if this has corrected my problem ?

THANK YOU FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE.
