Windows 7: random BSOD, used driver verifier and multiple crashes generated

1. Let's hope that it is enough :)

2. Yes. I normally suggest to wait a few days before marking the thread as solved.

Unfortunately, got a crash tonight. Was browsing Firefox v46.0 and it crashed all of a sudden, and wouldn't restart (keeps going to the crash window). So I decided to restart the laptop, after waiting a bit longer than usual, the laptop boots and tells me Windows 7 didn't shutdown properly. Looks like it was a BSOD, and again no actual blue screen.

Below is the BlueScreenView error:

Thank you again for the help!

You don't see the BSOD probably because you haven't set the recovery settings to not reboot when a BSOD occurs, this causes the BSOD to instantly disappear with your SSD as boot device.
I had the same problem a few times when I was booting, this happened a long time ago.
With a SSD you need to uncheck the 'Automatically restart' option in the Startup & Recovery settings to get the BSOD screen visible for you.

After you've done that run driver verifier again according to below instructions to see if it flags anything.

random BSOD, used driver verifier and multiple crashes generated Diagnostic Test random BSOD, used driver verifier and multiple crashes generated

warning   Warning
Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
Please create a restore point.

Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.

Some windows drivers are blamed in a few crashes, but that usually means that a 3rd party driver is actually the cause.
Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

Note   Note
Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.

HELP! Laptop feels bricked. After rebooting to start driver verifier:

1) 1st reboot- hangs at startup; tried again, same.
2) Reboot, this time tried Safe Mode and Safe Mode w/command prompt- now boot hangs at CLASSPNP.SYS. Every single time.

3) Put in my Windows 7 cd to try to system restore-- it hangs at the windows logo screen (4 color windows animation freezes). Every single time. **To note, I can disable UEFI in bios and the windows 7 cd will boot, but when I go to repair, it says "This version of System Recovery Options is not compatible with the version of windows you are trying to repair. Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of windows." So I still can't get to system recovery... Is it because my m.2 SSD (C drive) needs UEFI on?

I am essentially stuck with no way to restore back to Windows 7. Is my only option to reinstall windows 7? (Hopefully it is still possible...)

Try first to reset the settings of driver verifier before using the system restore point, you can reset them in some ways which I've mostly included in my post.

Axe0, thanks for your continued support.

1) I was able to get into repair mode through my windows7 boot cd by also enabling "Launch CSM" and "Network Stack" under the submenu of "UEFI" being enabled, looks like they were both disabled. (Should these stay enabled?)

2) In the windows7 boot disk repair mode, I selected "command prompt" and and chose to use BCDEDIT command to get Safe Mode to boot up. It was successful, but then windows7 would only start in safe mode. I went to MSCONFIG and under the boot tab unchecked "safeboot" while leaving "make all boot settings permanent" unchecked. (Was this the proper way to do it?)

3) I went back to driververifier.exe and reset settings (disabled it).

3) Now that I'm back to normal Windows7, here is the new generated log file: Attachment 385776

Axe0, I am back as I ran into trouble again:

2 days after your post I decided to install Creative Sound Blaster Cinema 2 drivers, because I couldn't find any available Realtek drivers newer than the ones I'm using (I tried Sager and Clevo websites, and Realtek website which only offered a generic driver). Things ran without BSOD's, but just now when booting up before Windows7 started to load it jumped to a checkdisk message, "one of your disks needs to be checked for consistency..."

Below is the WININIT event log of the incident:

Checking file system on C:
The type of the file system is NTFS.

One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You
may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended
that you continue.
Windows will now check the disk.

Please wait while your computer restarts.

After getting back to Windows7, I tried running checkdisk through My Computer>>right-click C drive>>properties>>tool tab>>check now>> "check next time reboot"... ...but after it ran, there was no WININIT log under event viewer(???).

So then I instead went to "search program and files">>chkdsk>>right-click chkdsk.exe and run as administrator. And a WININIT log was generated, and results normal.

Do you think the cause of my BSOD problems are because of a faulty SSD?

I don't see any indication that it may be a possibility.

A chkdsk is once in a while required, after almost a year my laptop wanted me to run it again and thus did so by itself.
Chkdsk will change a few things, as it has with your hard drive, but in most of the times there are no real issues.
