Windows 7: 10 BSODs in a week

11 May 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit (Fresh Install on 8/28/15)
 
 

Despite best efforts, couldn't find a specific program from ATI that is just for uninstalling. So, downloaded 64-bit version again, used the uninstall feature in the catalyst control panel to uninstall everything (only the ATI Driver was listed as installed previously - I don't think the install manager was removed though). Rebooted. Desktop comes back up after reboot with about 800x600 resolution (smallest).

I run the install program as administrator, deselecting all the other junk except the bare minimum (Driver, ATI Catalyst Install manager and Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable) and install.

Further, I thought this might be related to hibernation/sleep issues, so I manipulated power settings in the control panel to prevent sleep/hibernation. Hooray for 3 page thread on AMD forums that includes several similar issues regarding the 5770 and win 7 64 bit: AMD Game Forums - Hibernate / sleep problems on Windows 7 with Radeon HD 5770

Hey, guess what happened? (see attached)

Well at least this one doesnt point to you video driver. Have you run a system file check yet?
(type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow)

Let us know the results as you may have to run it more than once

Verification 100% Complete. Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations. Running it again for kicks. (same result)

As an aside, speedfan 4.40 is showing temps between 50-60 C for hardware that's monitored. (2 cpu fans, 3 internal fans)

Re SFC good

Do you have any more recent DMP's or is this on crash since the video driver?

I've uploaded all I have - only one since the fresh install of the driver. It really only happens during gaming, and I'm a getting wary of doing damage to my system with all the crashes (although I need to figure out what's going on of course).

Any other diagnostic suggestions?

edit: Checking out J_King's article, ty.

Well, using J_King's posted link, I have not had another BSOD in the last 2 days. However, I have had spontaneous reboots *without* a BSOD (about 3 in the last 48 hours).

Windows is telling me that their is a problem with my ATI driver, but still no download available from the solution center.

I find it a bit odd that my comp should be overheating considering it has working (spinning, visually verified) fans over the RAM block, above the CPU (external), seperate CPU fans for each core and a flow series (front of case intake and back output).

Not sure where to look since there are no new dmp files being created and the Event Viewer is oddly quiet (no error after a crash, whut?)

If anyone has ideas of where to look next, that'd be great - otherwise I am at least somewhat happy it works with the cover off for now. Thanks, as always.

In June, it started to act uppity again, so I took it to a shop by my house that does free diagnostics and included the comments of those who helped me here (thanks!). Individually, everything passed the stress tests, so there conclusion was a failing motherboard. Replaced motherboard.

Apologies if necroing this thread is inappropriate - wanted to provide my end actions in case someone did a search. Thanks everyone for your help.

Apologize? On the contrary, thank you.

We appreciate reports like yours. Too few take a moment and update their thread.

Glad it's all sorted out!
