Windows 7: BSOD when opening applications

Windows 10 Pro/ Windows 10 Pro Insider

Akiba101, Try going here and make sure that is your Motherboard. Update/reinstall all of your drivers. Do Not install any of the AI Suite. I used to own that board and it was a good board. I still believe it is a hard drive and likely your SSD. Creating some space on your other drive will help. Maybe putting some data on an external drive. If you have any friends who have Windows 7 Professional X64 DVD, you can install windows or try a repair install with that. Any disk of the exact same as you have is OK. All the disks are the same it is the Activation Number that is important.

Windows 10 Pro/ Windows 10 Pro Insider

I have just looked over this thread again. Most of the problems have been Hard drive related, but all have had a different code and different cause. In many cases that is a sign of bad Ram. That is exactly what bad ram will do. If you want to try, run memtest86+. These are the instructions, but it has to be run for a minimum of 8 consecutive passes at a minimum.

Please Run Memtest86+

Please download from this site only in the middle of the page are the Download links, you can download the or the Auto USB Flash Drive

Extract the Zip file. If you chose the ISO image, burn it to a CD using Windows Disk Image Burner or any Image burner you may have. If you downloaded the Auto USB installer, extract it, insert your USB 2.0 Flash Drive and take note of the drive letter. Run the installer, select the Flash Drive Letter, check the format box and press next. It will install memtest86+ to a flash drive. You can use either V4.20 or V5.01. Boot from your selected media. If you use V5.01 it will tell you to press certain buttons at the start, please press no buttons. The test will begin on it's own and continue to run until you stop it. It needs to run for 8 complete passes or until you receive an error. If you receive an error, stop the test. Even 1 error is a fail. Each pass tests a different part of the ram and each of the 10 tests in each pass tests something different. It takes a minimum of 8 passes to completely test the ram, more passes are better. It is quite a long test and will take several hours depending on how much ram you have. Due to the time length it is best to run overnight. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask

New applications opening under current window
