Windows 7: Completely random BSOD appears, drivers and apps crash on startup

Completely random BSOD appears, drivers and apps crash on startup

Hello community,

I've recently started having really weird problems with my laptop.

It used to lag while writing a comment for example sometimes, but it wasn't so bad and I just thought that it was just for the moment. When I watched a video on youtube it happened the first time. The place where youtube video should be was my screen inside my screen, so I was thinking: "wt* is going on?!". I refreshed the window, it started loading the video and boom, BSOD.

After that, I booted Windows somehow, but half of the drivers and apps crashed(with InPageError) so I thought: "Ok, now it's good", but every other startup was worse and worse and my computer booted really slowly, having a lag already at the beginning. It seemed like it completely stopped loading all startup programs and drivers, so I try to click something and it's stuck on "Busy" pointer while mouse was on taskbar. Also, I couldn't click anything on the desktop either. After some time it's finally unstuck, but even more startup programs and drivers had crashed. After 6-7 reboots after that during two days, it completely surrendered on booting the system and it shows the BSOD right after the login screen where I have to enter the password of the user.

Also, blue screens started to have many lines of different colour and I couldn't even see what the blue screen says, so I assumed it had something to do with the graphics card. Also, the screen even before the booting of the system, where the blinking "writing" pointer is, which is there while the computer is checking if there is CD to boot from(cause that's how my booting priority is) had many "quote" characters all over the place, which was also really weird. Seemed also like graphics card had a problem.

The only way I could boot my system is going to Safe mode and I copied all my important files to Local Disk D and reinstalled the system after formatting the Local Disk C.

It booted ok and I thought that everything was ok. After installing just the Graphic card driver and rebooting the system everything was also ok at first (1600x900 resolution) and every driver and program was loaded ok. Then I put the hand on the keyboard and was about to move the mouse and again, god damn BSOD. So apparently, it wasn't ok.

I booted the system normally this time and could do something so I downgraded resolution to 1280x720. The next 5-6 reboots since then was ok until today. BSOD out of the nowhere. I wasn't even using anything that uses a lot of resources. Computer restarted, this black screen with "writing" pointer again with many quotes, system boots ok, but the printer driver this time crashed. Computer functioned normally after that, but I got the blue screen again after browsing some website (totally random). Since then no any news, but I know that the blue screen can happen in any time. And besides that, I am afraid of putting my computer on normal resolution.

I really need computer right now, cause I am studying. Do you, people, know what is this all about and if this can be fixed easily(hopefully not an hardware error). I've run the memory check and the computer said that it was all good. In the attachment is also the information from the dm log collector. I hope that I've described the situation good enough.

Best regards and thank you,
Peri_95

Hi Peri95,

Sorry for the delay.
Are you still in need of help?

Hi axe0,

No problem.

Yes, the problem is still here, but it crashes rarely now. But still, I am on a lower resolution and I am afraid to put it back to the normal resolution.

Do you know what could that be all about?

Best regards,
Peri95

P.S.
Now sometimes, instead of crashing, the screen quickly changes to complete white, then black and then the message in the right corner that the GPU driver has stopped working and has recovered(that all happens in a second). I think that this has something to do with this, but I am not sure.

How do you mean updated? I didn't know that that exists(for Win7 at least).

Well, no updates at all were installed. I've never used that. But my computer never had a problem with the operating system. It started doing this recently. To be honest. Long time(about 5 days) I didn't have a blue screen, but I don't think that the problem is fixed. Maybe I was just lucky.

I highly recommend to update your system immediately.
Your computer is at a high risk to get infected, + several updates are hotfixes for several BSOD crashes.
