Windows 7: Ntoskrnl.exe BSOD after new Windows 7 install

01 Jan 2015   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit


Today I got another BSOD. It happened when I left my computer on for a half hour.
I then came back to it, tried to log in, my computer froze and the Blue Screen occurred. I have
attached the dmp file in a .zip.

(Hopefully more info can clear things up)?

Ok, thanks!

So if it's safe to assume it is the hard drive, what would be the next step?

Also, when I ran the tests you recommended on it - nothing came up - was I doing something wrong?

Did you rub Seatools for DOS, the short and long tests? SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use

You also need to run it on all your hard drives. Sometimes the errors are from a secondary drive. All I know is all the dumps seem to be pointing to a hard drive or file system structure.

Hello, just a quick update.

For a week no bsods have occurred, and I am still in the progress of testing my hdd.

However, I have had 3 recently. I have uploaded a dmp file. Hopefully these can shed
some light on the situation.

Thank you

Have you changed your virtual memory size? This is Vista Forums but is the same for Windows 7. See what yours is. Virtual Memory Paging File - Change

I ran SeaTools for DOS on my HDD (I only have one)
Short test and long test - both passed.

However, I have had two more BSODs recently. One while starting up my PC, and one just out of
the blue after I had logged in (different days of course)

Anything in these that still points to the hard drive? Or could it be my disk drive (where I put
CDs, etc)?

Thank You

One of the dump files was pretty much exactly the same as all the others I have seen. stop code F4 all with references to NTFS and I/O

The other one was a standard 116 which is a typical graphics driver/card error

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.
