Windows 7: BSOD upon startup - subsequently unable to load windows normally

BSOD upon startup - subsequently unable to load windows normally

I recently experience BSODs upon logging onto windows. The error messages vary.

Subsequently my system has been unable to boot other than in safe mode.
Any attempt to load windows normally ends up with the screen freezing like in the pic, before getting to the log in page.

I have tried System Restore but none of the restore points work and an error message appears that the restore file was damaged or deleted.
I have tried rootkit removal, antispyware and antimalware.
Still unable to resolve.

I have also tested my ram with memtest, no errors.

Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Appreciate any help.

Welcome to SF Kestriel :).
The first question is usually, can you boot into Safe Mode?

A single bug check is not much to go on please upload the rest located in the minidump folder,
You have quite a handful of very old drivers:

Please Upload a screenshot - Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

How old is the system, mainly the PSU and GPU?
Were any components ever replaced / added?

Please test the HDDs:
warning   Warning
The Following Method Should NOT Be Performed On An SSD!

Testing the HDD:
  1. Perform a Disk Check | Disk Check- Scroll down to OPTION TWO of the tutorial and use the /R switch in the CHKDSK command | chkdsk C: /R.
  2. Then Post the Disk Check results following | This Tutorial.
  3. Once back in Windows, download Crystal Disk Info and post a screenshot (multiple shots if you have more than one drive).
  4. Download SeaTools for DOS if you don't want to use a CD to test the HDD you can use YUMI – Multiboot USB Creator to create a bootable USB (instructions are found at the bottom of both pages).
  5. If SeaTools for DOS is unable to recognize your HDD:
  6. Visit HDDdiag and follow the instructions | Or follow the instructions below.
If SeaTools For DOS does not recognize the drive;
Boot into the BIOS using the *Fx key.
Look for an entry called SATA Mode (or something similar), it should be set to IDE / AHCI.
It's probably set to AHCI which is why SeaTools doesn't recognize them in the DOS environment.
Set it to IDE then save and exit usually by pressing the F10 key.
Now boot into SeaTools and it should detect the drives.
Start the Long Test and let it run.
Upon completion don't try to boot into Windows as it will only result in a BSOD, go back into the BIOS
and change the SATA setting back to what it was in the first place.

Let us know the results.

Sorry to hear .
Do you remember the results?
Did SeaTools pass or fail?
What did CHKDSK say?
Do you still have Driver Verifier enabled?
As things stand it, looks like a defective HDD, do you have a spare?
