Windows 7: Frequent, sudden and unpredictable BSODs

27 Jan 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit
Frequent, sudden and unpredictable BSODs

After a prolonged period powered down, my computer boots up without fail and runs fine a few minutes, usually longer if not running a graphics-intensive game. But then, without warning, it freezes utterly, the picture disappears and the sound becomes loud screeching. Only a power reset helps. Then it will not boot up immediately (no beep from BIOS, caps lock light does not toggle), and even when it does, Windows might not load. Earlier, it would do this only for a couple of times and then stay up indefinitely but the situation is deteriorating, now it is hardly usable.

Plenty of different BSODs, appearing after a freeze about half the time:

Stop error
CMOS checksum error
faulty driver on the kernel stack

Memtest86+ reports no problems. Temperatures seem fine, and occasionally the computer runs for hours with no problems, even with a fullscreen DirectX game. A repair shop was unable to find fault, although their dust-clearing may have helped. All Windows updates installed. No hardware changes whatsoever. I have not been able to narrow down the problem.

This is really aggravating and I'm really lost with this one, please advice!

New symptom: "BOOTMGR image is corrupt. The system cannot boot."

This is a strange problem... if it was just software (drivers), why would the length of the interval between bootup attempts matter? But if it's hardware, which component?
