Windows 7: Intermittent 7B on startup

Let me know if the problem reoccurs, the changes chkdsk made may just be enough to fix it.

Nope, still getting it - and still nothing in boot logs to show it :/


So far it's never happened on a straight reboot, only cold boots and even then only occasionally.

The next time it occurs, let me know, I need a dump of the 0x7B to continue.

You mean use the log collector and upload the results again?

You could do that, but this time I mainly want a dump, anything else is extra.

Have you tried booting memtest from cold? Had an issue a fair while ago now where my PC would blue screen at first boot and then work without issues all day.

Finally traced it down to some sort of issue with the memory for circa 30 secs after booting from cold but I had to boot straight into memtest to see it. If i tried at any other time it would do 8+ passes without issue but when running from cold it you could see the 8000 ish errors in the first 30 seconds and then it would just stop. A bit of a pig of a problem to solve that was...

No, but I did try going to safe mode from cold but all I got was a black screen for some reason. It's not even frozen or anything, there's just no menu and I could ctrl+alt+del to reboot fine from there on. Thanks for the tip tho, I'll give that one a try.


I actually hope that's the same problem as I have, replacing RAM would be an easy fix. The symptoms certainly sound alike.


EDIT: I try to run memtest off UBCD but I get a feeling that whatever errors the RAM might produce would have to exist for such a short period that it takes too long for me to navigate the menus to actually catch it happening.

I guess I could swap out the RAM sticks and see what happens.

Here's another post-BSOD dump, for whatever it's worth.

I found a few eventlogs indicating repair of corrupted files.

 System File Check

Please try following:
  • Open an admin command prompt
  • Copy/paste "sfc /scannow" (without quotes) and press enter
  • When it is finished reboot your system
  • Open again an admin command prompt
  • Enter sfc/scannow again
If sfc/scannow says "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them" after the second SFC, please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.

Make a photo of the result and post it.

Both runs of sfc /scannow came up with "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."



However, as I swapped the RAM sticks for different ones, I think some of the caps on my mobo are swollen and if that's the case, that's probably the most likely cause of this problem.


Unfortunately it's such an old model that it's nearly impossible to find the same make and model of to replace it with. Do you think I could replace it with a suitably similar model like G41C-GS without having to reinstall Windows? They both appear to utilize the same chipsets and are pretty much identical in every respect except that one has additional DDR2 sockets and a PSU fan connector.


My only other option is to buy a whole new mobo and CPU and I'm somewhat reluctant to take that route due to cost concerns, unless I have no other choice.-
