Windows 7: Frequent BSODs happening at any time

21 Jul 2015   #1

Windows 7 64bit Homre Premium
Frequent BSODs happening at any time

Hi, I was experiencing many BSODs about a week ago, the cause was highlighted to be my NVIDIA drivers so I rolled back to a previous version and it appeared to have fixed the problem. However now they have come back with a vengeance, I assumed it might be the drivers again so I redownloaded the previous version which didn't solve the problem I then did a clean install to the most recent version which also didn't work, it BSOD'd on startup twice in a row and then as I was writing this post.

Could someone please help to identify the cause using the dump files and if possible suggest a fix? Any help is massively appreaciated, at this point I'm preparing myself to wipe everything and do a windows 7 re-install/ repair :/

The dump files include all of my BSOD crashes, the most useful ones would probably be the last 4 or 5 I think.

All the BSODs are reporting display failure, and all those are with the driver version 353.30 WHQL.

Test the situation with another version of the display driver installed. Uninstall the installed display driver using Display Driver Uninstaller. Then install an earlier WHQL version. Drivers | GeForce

See how it goes. Let us know. Further troubleshooting will be needed depending on the situation.
