Windows 7: Random bsod / black screens

29 Jan 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Random bsod / black screens

So this one is driving me mad. I am experiencing some random bsod/black screens. I did a format but the problem remains. I am running driver verifier and its crashing/black screening.

As you will see below in the dump files(there are several of them), the bug reports keep changing. I tried to fix them and then new ones popped up in the new dump files. This computer build is less than 1-2 months old and i have been experiencing these bsod / black screens since the very start.

Some progress that i made: I fixed most of the driver issues but i can't get to fix the last one. I have been getting constant black screens after 5-10 minutes that i run driver verifier. The last dump file is the most important. I am just providing the rest to see a history of the problems. Please help me.... i am desperate.

PS. I have tested the HDD/SSD with chkdsk and hdtune, tested the RAM with Memtest and Prime95 for cpu, furmark for gtx 760. ( I am currently using 4GB of ram only in one slot, and an older GTX 260 to find if the issues are from RAM/GPU but they still persist....)

You can start by getting rid of your counterfeit install,

OS Name:                   Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 
OS Version:                6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
OS Manufacturer:           Microsoft Corporation
OS Configuration:          Standalone Workstation
OS Build Type:             Multiprocessor Free
Registered Owner:          Tolees
Registered Organization:   
Product ID:                00426-OEM-8992662-00497
Original Install Date:     1/16/2015, 12:03:55 
System Boot Time:          1/30/2015, 3:09:48 
Counterfeit installations such as yours contained heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine Windows 7. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows 7 installation, and are still experiencing BSOD's, we will be happy to help you solve them.
