Windows 7: BSOD on boot, random restarts when booted

BSOD on boot, random restarts when booted

Computer originally came with Vista HP 32bit. Upgraded later on to 64bit, and recently upgraded to Windows 7, but as I wished to go back to 32 bit, I did the clean install from an upgrade disc method.

Since that time, I have had random restarts when doing mundane day-to-day tasks, from surfing the internet, to using MSN, to copying files to an external HDD. There never appears to be any correlation in what I'm doing at the time. Sometimes I'm not doing anything (I come back to my PC and find it has restarted/failed to restart [see next section])

Additionally, during the majority of boots (be it cold boot or from a restart) result in several failed attempts where a quick flash of a BSOD appears followed by a restart. The number of these occurences vary from boot to boot, and very occasionally I get success on the first try on a boot.

Windows recovery (the program it runs on failed boot) never finds anything, and I ran Memory Diagnostics which also didn't find anything.

I'm considering doing another clean install, but before I do I'm bringing the situation to your very capable hands, as if this is a hardware issue, I don't want to end up with the same situation again on a clean system. As requested I've attached the contents of the minidump folder.

Hey.

Update this driver. It is the cause of problems:

jswscimd.sys <<< This may be a virus. Upload the current file to here and let it scan for you. If it's not, update it then. It's in your system32\drivers folder.

Also, you should update these too:

Thanks for your quick reply.....Any way I can find out what that's a driver FOR? A google search didn't throw up anything immediately obvious....

OK the file scanned as clean, and as for updating drivers, I've worked out they are Atheros drivers, so I've attempted to run the latest .exe provided by Belkin for my wireless card, which asks to remove everything and BSOD's and restarts at that point.

Install using the device manager.

Right click on whatever it's for. Update driver software. Browse. Let me pick. Have disk. Browse.

Navigate to and double click on the .inf in the folder the .exe extracted to. Hit ok. Hit next. It will now install.

The .exe doesn't give me a location for where it extracts to, and the progress window that flashes up moves too fast during extraction to identify a location. Can't see any immediately obvious folders that it would be in.

Probably in the temp directory for the system or user account.

Tried C:\Users\Jamibu\AppData\Local\Temp before sending last post and it didn't find anything to update from.

In device manager, right click the wireless card and choose uninstall. Check the box to delete the driver too, when it asks.

Don't reboot. Try to install the new .exe now.

If it bsod, get back to Windows and try to install from the .exe again.



If that doesn't work and you need, give me a link to the .exe you're using. I could probably make it into a folder to install from using the device manager, for you.

BSOD/restart when attempting to unisntall and delete driver. Driver .exe is too large to attach (15MB) but can be found here
