Windows 7: Random 3B BSoDs at random intervals

22 Jan 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home Basic x64 SP1
Random 3B BSoDs at random intervals

Hello, so, can't tell when this all started happening, but every one or two weeks, either in a game or just sitting idle, I get the 3B STOP error code. So after 3 months of this, I'm finally asking for help here. I know, I took my sweet time doing it. I will attach the requested zip file as per the BSoD rules and guidelines sticky.

Also, this is what my Windows recovery window after a bootup after said Blue Screen.

Problem signature:

Problem Event Name: BlueScreen

OS Version: 6.1.7601.

Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:

BCCode: 3b

BCP1: 00000000C0000005

BCP2: FFFFF88001D28C1D

BCP3: FFFFF88009CB6850

BCP4: 0000000000000000

OS Version: 6_1_7601

Service Pack: 1_0

Product: 768_1

But I'm sure the zip has what you all need.

Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the reply. I'll be removing quite a few drivers then. And malwarebytes is the last culprit I'd expect. I'll do as advised though. Wish me luck. ;3
