Windows 7: new build. windows 7 x64. still random BSOD ... chrome?! (0x000000f4)

new build. windows 7 x64. still random BSOD ... chrome?! (0x000000f4)

Hi I've done a clean install, meticulously installing drivers (manually, via devmgmt) for my Dell XPS L502x

Last night, after running like a dream, I returned to a crashed laptop (black screen). chrome had been open...

I've memtested. I've disk-checked. I haven't even underclocked my new build yet - ran GPUCapsViewer with no problems.... MUCH more stable than previously, but still suffering from random blue screens... currently the common element is the hardware, and chrome.

(Interestingly, re the crash; my display goes blank for power-saving, and my backlit keyboard also dims. When the crash occurred, the keys were still lit - I inferred the crash occurred between the 'dim display' and 'dim keyboard' events... Not useful, just interesting!)

Hello jonny.

Please run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations.

That's all I have for the moment, will post more if I can find more things to try.

Cheers, Boris :)
