Windows 7: Multiple BSOD's Random crashes.

12 Jun 2016   #21

Windows 7

Hi thanks for recommending the program, I have a found a free version of it online.....

I ran a scan and it updated 10 old drivers and now shows all drivers up to date, not sure if the wireless card was updated though. Any idea how I can double check all this like you did above?

FYI, I never recommend a driver update program, it would have been an add.

warning   Warning
Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.
If you have installed any driver with Driver Reviver, please remove them as it may cause trouble.

In your paragraph there was a link to that site, must not have been intentional then...

Ok I rolled them back.

Just got another BSOD... the Wifi card is in a PCI slot its not integrated on the board, I updated its driver to a 2010 version as that's the earliest I could find..

The latest blue screen happened when starting Malware Bytes.. When I restarted the windows login screen took longer to appear.

I don't visit sites of such companies so I don't know the URL and cannot, will not and shall not post a link from any of those companies. As mentioned it would have been an add.

I would suggest some hardware tests.

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 7 Help Forums

Note   Note

MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

Make a photo of the result and post it please.

If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.

Hi I ran some tests that you mentioned above and have attached some pictures. Most of these tests look fine to me, however I did spot an issue on one of the hdd's. The screenshot is labelled "issue". It adivsed that there could be an issue with the cable, so I replaced the sata cable and the message is still appearing. Could this mean that something is wrong with the 500gb hard drive, but would something like this cause all these BSOD's. It is not the main drive just has some backup files on it, although it is quite old.

The interface CRC error count error is not something to be worried about, unless it increases substantially.

What it means is that there were communication errors between the hard drive, cabling and/or motherboard port, but it can be there from day 1 because of playing with the cables.
