Windows 7: Random BSOD, freeze, reboot, boot loop, no minidump anymore.

Windows 10 Professional x64

Try to update your nVidia drivers.
Can you try to switch SATA cables?

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

Swapping SATA cables and switching them to other empty slots fixed the safemode BSOD! Thanks a lot Laith! I never thought of that!
Other problems are still there though, and new Nvidia drivers don't fix them; and as I said, most videos crash the display drivers if I have current ones.
Still no firewall/aero, no sound card detected, I guess I'll just reinstall Windows for that.
Still some BSOD and freezes but the PC is totally usable.
I might try to memtest the new memory stick as well to see if there really was a faulty slot, because I wish to buy another 2Gb stick to match the new one, but that would be sad if one of the slot really is faulty, and a 4gb stick costs like 100 while 2Gb is 24. And my 32bit can't detect more than 3,25 Gb.

I attached newest minidumps if that can help.
Thanks again, you saved me a lot of time!

Don't use 2 different sticks of RAM, use one model of RAM. Do run MemTest86+.
