Windows 7: Intermittent BSODs almost daily

27 Oct 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
Intermittent BSODs almost daily

For a few months now, my computer has been BSODing almost everyday. It seems to be worse when gaming, and almost all heavy games will either crash after a random amount of time, or cause my computer to BSOD.
I was here a few months ago with this same issue but it never got resolved.

My computer also often fails to boot from a cold boot several times (sometimes i have to turn my computer on over 30+ times before it will boot.) And i get the beep error that: Video Could Not Be Initialized.

However, i have removed my video card and attempted to boot with the onboard video instead, and the boot problem still persists, so i have reason to believe it is not my video card causing this problem.

I also installed a new Power supply about a month ago, the BSODs continued.

I have already installed new drivers for almost everything including video, bios, network card.

None of the bluescreen errors seem to point at anything suspect, every bluescreen error is different and nothing stands out as what could be causing it.

I have ran several HD tests and all of them came back good.

Unless there is some driver causing this that i cannot put my finger on, the only two suspects left is either a failing motherboard, or memory. Though i have tried booting my computer with each of my ram sticks and each in a different slot, and the problem persisted.

Hi Vincent,
Did this start after you (tried to) removed malware.

I can see numerous entries in your event log that point to the fact it has either left remnants, or is still present.

please run this tool, copy/paste the output, as you appear to be using an OEM key on a retail motherboard

I haven't had to remove any malware in quite a while. I do scans fairly often and haven't seen any of the most common indicators of malware on my computer.

As for the OEM Key, i would love to understand that myself, as i built my own computer and installed a copy of windows myself onto it.

I just checked the Windows Product Key from the sticker from the copy of windows i purchased and it matches the same key in those results.

If i can recall correctly, i did get an error once telling me that my copy of windows was not genuine (It is genuine). But the error went away after i restarted my computer.

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to this problem. I lost internet for a while and was not able to get back on to check the forum for a few weeks.
I will download Malwarebytes and run the scan you requested and post the results soon.

As for the three programs you want me to uninstall, i have already uninstalled those programs weeks ago. I am not sure why my computer is still attempting to run those services when i have already uninstalled them.

Not a single one of those programs shows up in my installed programs list, so i will probably have to find a way to remove the services manually?

Hi Vincent,

Now Axe0 will need to see a crash dump, the latest one please

I haven't had any bluescreens since i removed the malware, however, i do not think enough time has passed for me to be certain that anything is fixed. Sometimes the BSODs happen multiple times in one day, and sometimes it takes 2-3 days before i see one. It really depends on what kinds of stressful gaming i do. The more stressful the game, the more likely it seems to be to cause a BSOD.

I updated my initial post with a renewed log/dump collection.
