Windows 7: Need help to understand this BSOD

Need help to understand this BSOD

After OCing my CPU it was stable for a few weeks then strange crashes started happening, I dont get a bluescreen just a black empty screen, on restart I get message that windows recovered and a dmp file. I uploaded it here. Would appreciate if some one would take a look at it, maybe its mentioned what is causing them, they are not frequent but still annoying.

The build should read 7601 as the 7600 is the original version without the Service Pack 1 in this it seems to me the system looks to be a bit of a muddle in this next dump read out.

I will await your reply before we go any further because if you bought this copy other than a genuine retail or OEM then I would suspect it might be counterfeit.

Hi again,

It was a cheap copy that I bought, most likely not original, and SP1 isnt included with it, most of the time I update manually but this time I forgot. Is this going to be a problem?

Yep well you can always check using the validation feature Genuine Windows - Windows Help but I don't hold much hope that it is anything but a counterfeit mate - sorry.

If you know the seller then I suppose you can always go back for your money and let them know it is a counterfeit or at very best a non genuine Windows copy.

If you continue with it because of it likely not to be genuine then things like being flagged by Microsoft, have problems like this happen a lot of the time and generally have a miserable time trying to fix things up.
The SP1 is absolutely necessary for the proper function of the system and I think if I a not terribly wrong will eventually end up with a system that will not function correctly.

My advice is to get hold of an OEM if you can or buy a key from a genuine source and use a download or this tutorial to install 7 Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 read the part regarding the ei.cfg removal tool. It is something you can use if you know a friend or relative who has a Windows DVD.
Anyway the choice is yours I know what I would do because it is not worth the grief.

Thanks I will do that soon, as for this BSOD, I was hoping it would point out to a hardware fault, OC related or not, maybe take another look at it? I doubt that a windows installation would BSOD/malfunction because its not genuine.

Also it would help me alot to do a fresh install on stable hardware.

I agree that a fresh install and using a genuine copy would be the way to go. Now you are doubting if the non genuine software would affect the system.

Well for one thing if the system is non genuine how sure would you be that the correct drivers for example would be loaded? the system without SP1 again is not going to let you install updates as is needed. Agreed the hard ware may have problems but I don't see the point of chasing them down when as I said earlier the drivers cannot be loaded properly.

So personally I would go with a new copy of 7 it really is the only way.

Now there are several ways of doing this
1. Get an OEM or retail copy
2. Buy a key direct from Microsoft and use this tutorial Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and as in the tutorial if you have a friend with a genuine DVD of Windows you can use that with the key or activation code you get. This is because very DVD has all the versions of Windows on it and you use the ei.cfg removal tool to let you get the version you need.
3. You could try the market again but with 7 it is getting progressively more difficult to find a copy.
