Windows 7: BSOD on startup on fresh Win7 install

BSOD on startup on fresh Win7 install

I had an ASRock mobo die on me due to video/PCIE reasons. I still had enough components to revive the pc except for mobo, so I got a Gigabyte GA-880GM-USB3 which would still be compatible with the CPU, and give me USB3.

I did as fresh install of W7Pro on the Samsung 850 Evo 500GB SSD, but now it only boots in safe mode, and I haven't figured out why. There is a quick blue screen on loading Windows, but it's too quick to reboot to get a look at it. I ran memtest86+ from ultimate boot disk overnight. It found no errors.

What should I look into next?

Thanks,
Karl

update

I managed to take a picture of the blue screen
it reads PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

*** STOP: 0x00000050 ....

I've read that this error can appear after hardware changes, but this is a week-old fresh Windows install...

Hi karlbr,

How old is your system?

Since there are no dumps in the zip and the logs don't provide much information, I would suggest to try a clean boot.





BSOD on startup on fresh Win7 install Diagnostics Test BSOD on startup on fresh Win7 install
 Clean boot

Please try the following:
  • Search msconfig and open it
    • Go to the tab services
    • Check 'hide microsoft services'
    • Uncheck all other services
    • Go to the tab startup
    • Disable everything
  • Click apply and click ok
  • Reboot if asked
See if the problem persist, if the problem does not persist enable in the startup tab in taskmanager 1 item and in the services tab in msconfig also 1 service, reboot and see if the problem persist. Keep doing this until you find the culprit or there is nothing left.

I booted up in safe mode + networking and got "windows recovered from an unexpected shutdown (possibly related?)
minidump is attached.

The system was originally put together in 2009 (my first build), but there is not much inside the case that hasn't been replaced besides the power supply and two sticks of 2gb OCZ Reaper ram (have added two more sticks from ebay, and Memtest seems to have cleared these)
This is all now on a week-old Win7 install.

As for services, there's practically nothing there (screenshot attached), but I will try disabling the asw thing in a bit


Thanks,
Karl

I disabled aswbidsAgent on services, still can't boot to non-safe mode, used phone to take video of BSOD. Screenshot of phone video attached.

I'm not particularly attached to this Windows install, but seeing as there's nothing on it, I have a hard time believing that it's a software issue

Attached is another minidump
The only two things left under services in msconfig left are mozilla maintenance service and avast antivirus. Do I nix those too?

I also tried getting rid of the pagefile entirely. Same result.

Pagefile shouldn't be deleted, it is a very important element in BSODs and performance.

Both crashes are caused by avast, remove it.

Hi Karl,

I would suggest for the momemt please uninstall Avast, in Safe Mode its actually recommended to do it from there
That will remove the other entry its part of Avast anyway.
(no microsoft services are showing as youve got the hide box ticked.)

It wouldn't hurt to run a repair install either, IE8 and regsrv32 are showing as problems.

Uninstalling Avast worked!
I've been using Avast for ~10 years. now I'm at a bit of a loss as to what to replace it with. Suggestions?
Thanks, guys!

Roy,
I tried to run a repair install, but Windows repair isn't picking up my SSD (currently "C"). It offers me the opportunity to furnish a driver in order to see the drive. I've never needed a driver to see my SSD, so I'm not sure how to do that. Is there another way to do the repair for the regsrv32 you mentioned?
