Windows 7: Windows 7 BSOD constant and seemingly random

Windows 7 BSOD constant and seemingly random

I have an Intel NUC with an internal SSD which I use as a HTPC. It's been relatively stable, but if it was left alone and went into sleep mode it would sometimes wake up with a BSOD, but this would never happen if I shutdown the computer properly after I was done with it. Over the last week that all seemed to change. I hadn't performed any updates or hardware changes, but I'm suddenly getting BSOD's all of the time. Sometimes it's while watching videos, sometimes it's while I'm trying to run Windows Update, sometimes it happens when no programs are open on the computer. I ran the "Who Crashed" program but it didn't specify any specific drivers as being the culprit. Can anyone here make any sense of my crash files?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Does it perhaps look like my SSD could be the problem? It is a few years old, but I didn't think it was old enough for it to start failing enough to cause these problems.

It could possibly be your counterfeit install, an ASUS OEM PID on an Intel machine means your Windows installation is illegal.

Counterfeit installations such as yours can contain heavily modified code that can cause the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSODs and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is completely unreliable, and for this reason most analysts won't attempt it.

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

Thanks for the heads up. I formatted the system drive and installed a clean version of Windows 8.1 over top of it, and so far no problems. Fingers crossed. :)

BSOD at seemingly random times, memory dump blaming random drivers
I've been plagued by odd problems since making this custom build about a month ago, but the latest is the increasing frequency of BSODs. They never occur at load (gaming with high end specs), but often occur at shutdown (forcing a restart before I can then actually shut down). I normally boot into...
