Windows 7: System hang with some BSOD

System hang with some BSOD

Windows 7 is stalling during general use for around 30 seconds every 10 mins.

There have been about 4-5 BSOD following the stalls.

Windows is on an SSD that is about 4 years old and reports 45% life remaining.

Any help is appreciated.

Is the firmware of the SSD up to date?

Please uninstall Daemon Tools. It uses a driver called sptd.sys which is known to cause BSODs in Windows 7.

 SPTD Removal:

  • Uninstall the software using Add/Remove Programs.
  • Reboot the system.
  • Once the program is uninstalled, run sptd.sys uninstaller to remove the driver from your system.
  • DuplexSecure - Downloads
As an alternative, many people recommend the use of Total Mounter or Magic ISO

 Clean boot
Reduce items at start-up. No software except anti-virus is required plus doing this improves the time for logging into windows:

Thanks for the help.
Checked SSD Firmware and its good.
Removed Daemon tools and used the removal tool.
Did a clean boot - just running security essentials
Installed newest vid drivers - Legacy and probably the ones that were already on here, I didn't check.

Memtest reports no errors - should I under clock the ram?

I'm still getting system stalling or long loading idle maybe 20 times a day followed by normal function, some lockups and some blue screens. After the blue screen the system will only boot into windows with a full power down. Windows is also failing to load 25% of the time and requires a reboot or two to get past the win logo. Desktop will sometimes start with the pointer showing loading but noting in the task bar will load and the system will not move passed this point without a rest.

POST and BIOS are normal

This seems to be getting worse rapidly.

The page keeps locking up when I try and add a new log. Had to type this twice. Copy and paste twice more.
