BSOD impossible to fix by myself?

Q: BSOD impossible to fix by myself?

It's been almost a week, I've had BSOD came up randomly once throughout the day, then the second day, it happened multiple times. I tried calling Microsoft support for help by speaking to their agents and after following their troubleshooting process, my laptop became worse to the point where I couldn't even get past the login screen and my correct password was seen as an incorrect password. I tried system restore, rebooting in safe mode, and a factory reset and the problem persisted. I asked Microsoft Support what to do next and they said my only option was a clean installation of Windows which required another PC and USB Drive. Haven't been using my PC for days until now.

I then called MSI and they told me the same thing, otherwise I had to go get it sent to a technician or mail it to them to get it fixed. Two days ago, I then did the clean installation of Windows as suggested using the creation media tool, downloaded all of the necessary drivers for the model of my laptop and there was no BSOD error while I was getting my PC up to date. I tried rebooting to see if BSOD would come up again and it seemed fixed. Today (first time using my laptop since I did the clean installation and downloading and installing necessary drivers), I downloaded Discord successfully and then tried downloading Firefox through Internet Explorer (what I'm using right now) within several minutes after starting my laptop, and before I was able to download Firefox from their website, the BSOD came up. Right now, I didn't bother taking that risk again of downloading Firefox (while I still have Discord app running in the background currently), but I'm sure the BSOD will still come up again eventually. I tried calling Microsoft Support again, and they tried getting me to pay for some repair service which I refused.

My question is, is it still possible for me to repair it by myself with this website's help or am I forced to send it in for a professional to repair?

My specs:

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64 bit

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

The Bluescreens i get are completely at Random, sometimes my computer crashes before i can even log on, other times it can run for a day without a crash.
but lately ive only been getting the before-log on crash.

Attatched are the two folders i could get before it crashed. it seems to not like when i try fixing my computer.

The newest stuff is in minidump.rar i think.
i couldnt click fast enough to get a brand new one.

My Computer's about a year or two old, its been not used for months because of the bluescreens.
Its A Acer Gateway DX4831
it has 1TB of HDD and 6GB of ram, it Runs on windows 7 home premium and i have done two clean reinstalls already.
if was running on something different at first, it was still windows 7, the bluescreens started happening ages ago so i cant really determine what could of started them.
but i do remember the fact that it started with one blue screen every once in awhile, then they started to build up.
Im not very educated in fixing computers, so if i am told to do something i might need instructions on how to do so.
it is a 64 bit
what else..Its never been anything other than a acer gateway, and its been under a week since the last clean reinstall.
ive tried numerous amounts of things. During the clean reinstall i would constantly get bluescreens
I will post updates if anything happens.

the only things i could get [i apologize]

Hi all

I have had this problem for a couple of months and it is driving me crazy . The problem has also evolved somewhat. It started with what seemed like power issues and so I bought a brand new 530W PSU. Since then I have done a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro SP1- twice. Updated the BIOS. Updated all the drivers I could find that were slightly old. I have swapped out the graphics card; swapped out the RAM (DDR3); swapped out the mobo for identical model. I have even bought a new SSD and installed W7ProSP1 on that. It now starts nice and fast - but still unstable. I get 3 types of failure:

1. BSODs. dumps show various errors - not all the same.
2. Lock-up / Freeze - have to power off/on (no logs/dumps).
3. Random resets where the system acts as though the reset button was pressed. (no logs/dumps).

I am at a complete loss. Seems that the only thing I haven't swapped out is the CPU.

I have followed the instructions for attachements - please note that the system froze twice and I had to power off/on and re-run the program. Worked third time around. I have attached relevant files. I have also attached a screenshot of various system stats to give a better idea of my setup.

I really hope that someone here specializes in the impossible. This has cost me a fortune in time and money - and hair I REALLY need some help here. I have done everything I know how to and I am still lost.

TIA guys.

I remember I brought an upgrade copy of Win8 in error, I got it from PC world. I still have those disk but now I also have this new PC version. I remember going back to PC to tell them I brought it in error I also remember calling the MS helpline.

Can anyone make sense of this? How did this copy come to be working on this computer?

I'm currently wanting to do a clean install but I can't because I can't workout what happened in the past

Cheers
 

A:How is this even impossible?

Sounds like you may have an OEM System Builder versions of Windows 8. It is intended to be installed by someone or a company building a new computer that is to be resold. That particular version includes a personal use license which allows anyone to buy an OEM System Builder copy of the software and install it on a (new or old) PC that is intended for personal use. It should have come with an installation key.

Here is some more information on the ZDnet web site.

Hi! I'm new here -- noticed that a few people had the same problem I'm having with IE Pop-Ups, so I thought I'd look for some help. Spyware scans and pop-up stoppers couldn't cut it and my virus scanner finds nothing wrong.

Though I can only check back here every now and then, and not on the weekends (I apologize in advanced for slow replies), I was hoping that someone might have some ideas on where to go to fix this!

Thanks for your time!

I have a folder in my external terabyte that appeared some time ago. I can not delete it with any software. I tried to delete with DOS and it says all the same. The problem is that it will not let me downgrade it to a write-able format. It seems to be locked in READ ONLY status. I have attempted to take ownership of the drive and the files, but I can not get rid of it. When I first noticed it, it was random letters. When I tried to delete the file it turned into many many "Z's". When I ran the DOS delete protocol it changed into 6 "Z's"; with in that folder is a empty folder called "Update". Since then I have not been able to do anything about it. I don't know what to do. I even downloaded a program called Delete on Boot, and still no success. I have been coming here for about a year when I caught the Rogue Internet Security 2010. It was since then, 12/30/09 the day that i reformatted to yield to the virus's victory that the file first appeared in the external hard drive. I am wits end and I know someone out there can help me. Please tell me what to do. I was told that it was very complex and destructive hack file. Am I infected again?

Hey guys it's me again with my annoying and those that seem to be impossible-to-fix-problems.

Well 3 months ago i bought an AMD 5600+ Dual Core and i had lots of problems since then, believing it was defective, i wrote to AMD support and requested an RMA. My replacement arrived today. It fixed LOTS of random crashes and my computer was able to boot up properly with both rams placed on in dual channel. I went to play on Soulstorm, it crashed, sometimes half way through a game or sometimes about 5 minutes into the game. I went on another game which is Company of Heroes, it crashed too.

The only reason i tested these 2 games was because they crashed most of the times when i had the defective processor.I thought it was the RAM but i thought it wouldn't make any sense because while waiting for my replacement to arrive, i put in my old AMD Athlon 3500+ and it worked fine with EVERY SINGLE games so it couldn't be the RAM and it can't be the replacement either. Not knowing what else to do, i took one stick of ram out, and guess what? It worked like a charm ! I really have no idea what's going on inside but if anyone had been through this or anyone who knows how to fix please help and....ermm if it works you'll be able to rest assured that a person on earth is grateful and just wants to kill you with hugs XD

Holy cow I am hoping someone here can help me out for I am pulling my hair out one strand at a time.
 
I have a Sony Vaio All-In-One 3D touch screen computer [VPCL22SFX] that is having an issue and I am unable to figure out what exactly is going on. It does not lack in processing power or RAM which makes this even more difficult. This PC has worked perfectly since I bought it but now it seems there is something wrong and I can't figure it out. About 3 months ago it started slowing down at certain times and I have exhausted everything I know to help diagnose what the issue could be and I am coming up with nada. I only use this PC for accessing MS Office and internet surfing so I keep it very clean. When I go to YouTube the video and audio stutters and brings the PC down to a crawl. I will attempt to move the mouse at the same time and it also stutters or skips all over the place. When I try to copy data over from the PC to an external hard drive [or vice versa] the mouse exhibits the same behavior. I am on a wired connection and I am getting about 40 MBPS downloads and 4 MBPS uploads on AT&T Uverse, and I run speed tests all the time so I know the number is consistent. I have used Hiren's Boot CD to test the CPU, the RAM, the fans, the hard drive, the video card and the audio and it passes all the tests. I also used VAIO Care to test everything as well as Bluetooth, BD drive, etc. and it passed all those tests as well. I ran a check for spyware and malware...nothing w... Read more

This is going to be a long post. I'll start from the beginning.

Windows 7 (64 bit premium) came to my door today. I put it in my disc, logged on to my windows xp account. A pop up came up saying, "close any programs still on xp". So i googled how to do that, and it said to wipe my fdisk. I opened the console and did so, but that it didn't know if it was an external or internal command. So i googled another way to do it, and it get compmgmt.msc as a command to enter into my start>run thingy. I do that, and i go to disk management. Then i went to format, and hit the start button (not on the bottom of the screen, the little pop up window from format). Then it tells me i need to go to safe mode. I did, and went to the command prompt safe mode. I typed in fdisk, but got the same message as before. I hit restart, and went into regular safe mode. The other places i read about said to do it in administrator. The administrator had never been there before, and had just popped up. I hit enter on the password to see if it would go, but it wouldnt. so i hit restart, but this time windows 7 started up instead. Then i got stuck and froze my computer, so i restarted again. Then this message popped up before i get to the loading screen:

windows could not start becasue the following file is missing or corrupt: <windows root>\system\hal.dll.

A:impossible to get from windows xp to 7

You can't start setup from Windows. And you can't format the drive from which you are running Windows, any more than you can dig a hole in the ground you are standing on. You need to boot from the DVD and then remove the partitions when you have the option. After that, just follow the prompts.

There is no "fdisk" in Windows since around 10 years ago and it shouldn't be used on modern systems. Partitioning and formatting are part of setup. There are no messages from Windows 7 setup that mention fdisk, ever.

There are applications that can do this. One that I know of is Virtual Audio Cable. I've used it and it works well, but it cost's $30.A free alternative may be the LineIn Plugin for WinAmp, though I've never tried it.Please note that using such applications for copyright infringement is a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (in the USA) and/or equivalent national laws outside the USA.

The problmem is this application has been package using the Access wizard which creates the executible file and all the DL files, but the client doesn't have any idea where the development copy is located.

Okay, this may seem needlessly complicated, but humour me.

I work at a school that has some students using a video program requiring the screen resolution to be set at a particular level (800x600 I'm told). The students do not have access to the Display Properties panel, presumable to stop them screwin around with any of the other settings.

Now, I've been told to find a setting in the windows registry that allows students access to the screen resolution property but NOT the actual Display Properties panel. Is this even possible?!? If so, any ideas on where the hell to find it? The OS is Windows XP.

If this isn't possible, does anyone have any suggestions for other solutions to this problem? Perhaps an app that allows access to certain aspects of the Display Properties settings?

hi,
I'm a beginning enthusiast in the computer world, but theres one problem that has got me stumped. When opening the ACT program on a windows XP I get a message that says, "Application has generated an exception that could not be handled. Process ID=0x798(1944), ID= 0x79c(1948)." then it asks if I want to use debugger to figure out the problem and so I'll click yes and then it says that the debugger is missing a component. Not only this the computer is constantly going into BSOD often times for "missing registry components". The memory is a little too small for all of the business programs put on the computer. I've ran at least four different types of spyware and virus removers in safe mode, they remove a few small spyware ads from caselmedia but there is never any kind of virus detected on the computer. Please help me out, I would really appreciate it if someone out there knows what to do. Thanks a bunch.

Have you tried going into C:\program files\Snagit? You can delete the program directly from the program files directory or wherever it may have installed (program files is the standard). If its currently running, kill it from the cntrl-alt-del menu and delete the entire folder from programs. If you get access denied and either cant kill the process or dont know what it is, start in safe mode and delete it from the directory.
