Windows 7: Freezing issues and BSoD issues. Help please!

12 Feb 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
Freezing issues and BSoD issues. Help please!

My first problem is that Windows will randomly freeze up and I end up having to hard reboot my system. Windows will also BSOD on me randomly. I've read a number of things online about how to fix it, but nothing seems to help.

Also, another problem, I'm not quite sure how to explain this one. I'm not too computer savvy so forgive me if it doesn't make sense. Windows seems to "lag" from time to time as well. I'll move the mouse and it will appear off somewhere else, just like how you lag in video games, where you would move and appear in other places because the computer can't process it. Also, during this "lag" if there is any audio playing it will "loop"? The sound will repeat until the "lag" spike goes away. This will happen about 3 to 6 times within a few seconds and then it will stop. Sorry if I made that confusing but that's the best way I know how to describe it.

If anyone can offer any suggestion on how to fix these two problems, I would greatly appreciate it.

I've included the most recent minidump file and my system specs.

Hello Welcome to SF,

I guess the issueis with one of the core Windows compenent ndis.sys This problem may occur if you installed the NWLink IPX/SPX/NetBIOS Compatible Transport protocol on your computer and you are using the Driver Verifier Manager to troubleshoot your Ndis.sys driver's Special Pool feature.
Reinstall you display driver and make sure you download them from vendors wensite and NOT from Windows update. Uninstall if your using any third party anitvirus or Firewall see whether that makes any difference. Update you BIOS firmware. If your Overclocking please stop it.

Run the Memory Diagnostic & HD Diagnostic

Also i would recommend to run System Integrity Checker
Start > Run > CMD >Right Click and Run as administrator > SFC/ SCANNOW
