Windows 7: Computer BSODs at random times

24 Jul 2013   #1

Windows 7 Pro 32 bit
Computer BSODs at random times

My computer has been BSOD'ing lately. It usually happens when I try to update windows. This usually will cause windows to freeze screen for a short bit, or not allow me to do anything (click programs, start menu, or anything on the taskbar). After this usually results in a BSOD. Please help

The 00Gonzo attatchment is everything I think is needed.

I would backup all your data and important files immediately, and perform these steps:

Run some hard-drive diagnostics and follow these steps:Find your hard-drive manufacturer and run their tests.
