BSODs, restarts, and freezes on Windows 7 32-bit

Q: BSODs, restarts, and freezes on Windows 7 32-bit

Hello there, I'm having a few problems with my computer that I've been unable to figure out on my own. Starting a few months ago my computer began getting a few BSODs, typically while playing The Sims 3. Over time the computer would also restart on it's own with no BSOD, or sometimes just freeze completely. And even when I do get a BSOD, it's not always the same error. Now it happens even when I'm not gaming, and it occurs roughly every other day or so. In fact today I had 3 incidents where the computer seemed to shut off completely. The 3rd time it did that, the fan came on afterwards as if the computer was trying to restart, but that was it. Needless to say I'm a bit concerned and confused as to what's causing the problem.

If anyone can help out it would be greatly appreciated. I've included an attachment with everything this thread says I would need.

Just a bit of a heads up:

- Windows XP was originally installed, I installed Windows 7 last August or September
- The computer as a whole is roughly 3.5 years old, though some bits(like my sound card and video card) are newer

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

For the past few weeks, my computer has been experiencing a couple of different failures. Sometimes it freezes up (including the mouse), sometimes it BSODs (different error messages at different times), and sometimes it just shuts off and restarts, as if the power had been momentarily cut. Sometimes it goes a few days between failures, and sometimes it happens multiple times an hour.

I've tried the following:

update drivers
restore from restore point from before the problem started
memtest86 (ran 11 times with no errors)
reinstall Windows

Here are the specs from the TSG SysInfo:

It's got me stumped, but that doesn't take a whole lot! Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Hello,
I am having some serious problems with my PC. It freezes, speakers are sometimes making a RRRRRR noise (last package of bits sent to speakers, I think, being "produced" over and over again), sometimes it just restarts, then it freezes in bootup (even in BIOS or in POST, just EVERYWHERE), sometimes the image on display gets "shattered" (as if the original image, the last frame displayed, got mixed up in lines and squares of different colors), sometimes it freezes in BSOD (that's hillarious), I could go on and on. I am almost sure my motherboard is faulty, but I consider this my "last hope" before making a complaint and trying to get a new mobo. I hope I did everything right (regarding the BSOD reporting protocols).

OS specs: Win 7 x64 Ultimate, OEM, hardware is mostly new (half a year, but one GPU is 3 years old nad my optical drive is 4 y.o.), OS installation is 3 weeks old.

P.S.: I do have Avast antivirus even though in System health report there is "no anti-virus detected" (dunno why), and as you may have noticed, English is not my first language, therefore I apologize for any errors and you may also find some stuff written in Czech in the BSOD regarding files.

Please Help!

I have re-installed Windows 7 64bit for the third time and I still have constant freezing problems with a couple of BSODs and random restarts thrown in. I have checked the hardware side (my processor, RAM, HDD, Video card, psu all seem to be OK. All of the drivers should be up to date. I have attached the BSOD report (hopefully I did it correctly.)

This computer was my first build which I built about a year ago and it originally ran on windows xp sp3 fine and then slowed way down. A dead hdd and retail version of Windows 7 later, I can not get this thing to run longer than 30 minutes before it freezes or restarts. Did I mention... I need help!!

My computer occasionally restarts itself or shuts down. Sometimes it will do a complete restart and I only know it because the Active Desktop Recovery screen is on my desktop suddenly. Sometimes it will freeze and the monitor will go black and flash an error message intermittently ("No input signal" message) after which I can no longer manually restart or shut down the computer, but instead have to turn it off and back on using the main power switch at the back of the tower. Sometimes it will restart but stop at the first black screen to alert me with the statement "S.M.A.R.T. status bad backup and replace error..." and asking me to press F1 to continue (I have an extra HD but moved files off it some time ago). The computer will restart/shutdown/freeze as little as once per day or as often as every 10 minutes if I am doing something like playing in foobar2000 or have photoshop open, anything I happen to enjoy, it seems . I cannot pinpoint these programs as culprits, only that I've noticed that the pc will absolutely do something when foobar2000 is running, for example. It shuts down at seemingly random times too.

Hi,
It used to be rather erratic and happen only once every couple of days, then I would sometimes have stretches as long as a week or more without any crashes but recently I've been having them systematically at EVERY startup!
 
I start my computer, it will usually boot up into Windows 10 Pro 64bit and then I rarely have to wait more than a few minutes for it to freeze or suddenly restart (more rarely a BSOD). Then starts a cycle of a few more restarts and freezes - always happening almost instantly or after a few minutes - before it eventually stabilizes and can then run reliably for the rest of the day!?
 
This is why I've ruled out temperature problems as it would seem the reverse would happen, i.e. crashing AFTER sufficient time was given to the system to heat up.
 
I have run 2 passes of MemTest without any errors but I've heard that as many as 10 might be needed to reliably exclude RAM problems but seeing how slow it runs the test on my 12Gb of memory, I couldn't be without my PC for that long!? 
 
Other useful troubleshooting info: I've recently upgraded to Win 10 in hope of solving my problems - it was already happening under Win 7. It's a 2nd PC I bought off ebay some +- 2 years ago so I don't know how old exactly it is but you'll see the specs in the attached files I guess.
 
Some of the BSOD errors I collected are (from oldest to most recent):
- Clock Watchdog Timeout

Hello All - please let me say thanks in advance for any assistance. I completed the system specs form when I set up my account.

I have an HP Pavilion p6540f with the following:
windows 7 prof 64-bit SP1,
8GB RAM,
two 1TB Seagate hard drives,
an AMD Phenom cpu,
an ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card
a Foxconn motherboard.

My problem is BSODs, spontaneous reboots or system freezes. Based on what I've seen on the internet, there seem to be several areas which could cause such a problem: something wrong with the RAM, overheating, or underpowered, the graphics driver, or something in the BIOS that needs upgrading.

As for the memory, I burned memtest to a cd and booted from that and let memtest run over night to check the RAM. It came back with no errors.

As to the overheating and underpowered possibilities, there is a CPU fan, a case fan and the fans associated with the power supply. The case fan and cpu fan seem to be functioning normally. I had the original 250W power supply replaced with a new 350W power supply which also seems to be functioning normally.

As far as the BIOS is concerned, it's AMI v6.04, dated 5/21/2010. There is a file available from HP, and that I've downloaded, called sp49851.exe. This is supposed to upgrade the BIOS to v6.09. I thought upgrading would be good since one of the things it's supposed to fix is a problem related to the machine not coming out of hibernation which sounds similar to what I've been experiencing. I ran this yesterday eveni... Read more

Hi,

First off thanks for reading my post. Basically my computer keeps having errors and they are nothing specific - nothing seems to set them off. Sometimes I'll be working and the computer will just freeze, or restart automatically. Often programs (especially the Windows ones such as Media Player, Live Messenger and IE explorer) will keep crashing with the error report dialog box. I have just reinstalled Windows so it can't be that.

My system specs are:

AMD Athlon XP 2000+ 1.6Ghz
Nvidia Geforce 7300GT with 512MB onboard RAM
1gb DDR RAM
Fully updated XP Home SP2

Thanks for looking

A:Random crashes, restarts, freezes, BSODs help please!!

Since you've just installed windows, you might have a hardware issue and you can try the following if you're sort of a hands-on type or get a knowledgeable friend such as a Geek to help
(1)Fan failure on the cpu or video card causing high temps. If fans appear to running full speed and no strange noises then possibly:
(2)Memory stick failure. If you have 2 ram sticks, try removing one at a time to isolate the issue. If you only have one stick, memory is relatively cheap so buy another 1 gb and repalce it. If you still have same failures, put original stick back in and now will have 2 gb to improve performance once PC is fixed..

I have a Compaq Presario SRF710F that has been working fine (except for the past few weeks) since December 2008. The only hardware I've replaced on it was to install a more powerful video card a few years ago.

In the past few weeks, it's started giving me random failures. Sometimes it's a BSOD (the actual error message varies most times), sometimes the whole computer freezes up and I have to restart manually, and sometimes it just turns off suddenly and reboots. Sometimes it goes a few days between errors, and sometimes it can't even finish rebooting from a failure before another one occurs.

It started a few weeks ago when I uninstalled iTunes and installed Samsung Kies and Media Monkey (ditched the iPhone for a Galaxy S3!).

I have taken the following steps:restore from restore point
deep antivirus scan with MWB and MSE
memtest86 (11 passes with no errors detected)
reinstall Windows

Hi,

I'm getting frequent crashes on my HTPC in Windows 7 usually without a blue screen of death (I have had maybe one or two BSODs). Sometimes the computer will crash almost as soon as I switch it on (i.e. when I'm using internet explorer), sometimes it crashes when watching a bluray in media center and sometimes when doing nothing at all.

The system was stable, however about 5 months ago I installed a new CPU and cooler, and about a month or so later I started getting these problems. I have tried the following:

- Virus scan
- Memory check (memtest86 multiple passes)
- CPU stress test (prime95)
- Hard drive check disk
- Graphics card stress (furmark)

The graphics card did show signs of overheating and the PC crashed shortly afterwards, however I have since tried the onboard graphics card and the problems are still there. The fact that the PC can crash shortly after booting also suggests its not this.

I can only think of three things that it can now be:

- Power supply (no idea how to test this, the power supply is a good quality Corsair, with more than enough power for the components and like I said, the system used to be stable).
- Motherboard (could be this I guess - potentially I damaged it when I installed the new CPU)
- Windows 7 (hence the reason I'm here!)

In trying to fix the PC I have used a registry fixer by a reputable company (I forget which one).

I can find two mini dumps on the PC (both from yesterday when I was doing some testing) ... Read more

Hello. Im a norwegian and have already written much about this problem in norwegian. Im not really good at english. So I can't write all that I've written to Zepto and on a norwegian forum. But I will atleast give you the logfiles...

Not every BSOD seems to have created a log file, some BSODs dont seem to dump properly for example. The BSOD's occur randomly. I can play several hours and end the game normal without problems or it can occur soon after startup without me even getting started up a browser. So personally I do not think this is a overheating problem, graphic card problem or cpu-problem.

I have searched with Vista's memory test, and memtest86. They found no errors and memtest passed 6 times the second time I tried to ran it. The first time I ran it, it froze during testing, so I had to restart and then it passed 6 times.

I have searched my PC with antivirus and found none. I have not been on any suspicious sites either.

The startup-problems is a pain when they occur. Like, last night. Bluescreen. Then I started it up again, but it didnt pass one of the boot up stages. It froze. So after I had waited a while I did a turn off, then I turned it on again. Black screen, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, still a black screen. I repeated this process 4-5 times, every time a black screen that didnt go away, the PC was on, but screen black and I couldnt hear any boot-up sound, only the fan.

Hi. . .

I would like the links to your other dumps. I see in photos & dumps that you are updated w/ Vista SP1. When did you update? One photo shows WERCON screen - TrustedInstaller crashing constantly since at least October 2nd. When did the system problems begin?

Can you run in SAFEMODE w/ any greater stability than normal windows boot-up?

Please run msinfo32 when possible & save in NFO format (NFO file extension). I am not sure if it will be in English or not - but OK for now.

Also, I'd like a Vista System Health report in HTML format. Please do the following:
START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select Run as Administrator | the black cmd prompt (DOS) screen will appear - type the following:

Code:
perfmon /report
It will take about a minute to run... then save it as an HTML file.

Please zip it & msinfo32 NFO file up and attach to your next post.

Hi there this is my first post on these forums so apologies if I'm not too familiar with the layout. I'm not too computer savy so if anyone could try simplify any answers/solutions that would be great. Basically the problem is for the past few months around start up of windows 7 I was getting freezes, BSOD errors (in particular IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and Page_fault_in_non_paged_area being the main ones) and my pc would be in a continuous loop of booting then freezing or shutting down and I couldn't get the pc to work. I thought the problem could be corrupted windows files so I reinstalled windows onto my computer using the isntallation disk and installed drivers and all was working fine for around 4 days. Each day my windows would have importaint updates so I installed them when prompted. One day I all of a sudden started getting the same errors I got before, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGEED_AREA and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and no new software had been installed at this point. I have tested ram and my hard drive with no errors showing although when looking at properties of my computer I have 20GB of ram (16GB Available) not sure if this has anything to do with it (2 x 8 GB sticks 1 X 4 GB stick). Hopefully you guys can help me out and prevent me shelling out on a new rig. Thank you, Conor .

Hello,
 
Thank you for taking time to look at this for me. I upgraded to windows 10 from windows 8.1, and never really noticed an issue, but would get random restarts. It was infrequent but still bothered me. I decided to reinstall windows 10, hoping a fresh install on a clean harddrive would help. I am still getting random BSODs and restarts. Its concerning because the restarts are similar to a power loss. The BSOD appears for a split second then the computer completely powers down before restarting. Otherwise the computer runs fine, always has. No problems at all before switching to windows 10.
 
I saw a similar thread about the restarts, which requested a file from event viewer so I included that as well as the 2 requested from the pinned topic
 
here is the rest of the information:

Hi there,Background & probs with CombofixIt was suggested by the guys at the Micro Star forums that I run ComboFix to solve / diagnose any problems with a PC I am trying to fix.

Sometimes, it boots without failure many times in succession - but turning it off for a while, and then turning it back on will provoke the problems.

Hello everyone,
I just upgraded my computer from windows vista ultimate to Windows 7 ultimate. I had no errors reported durning the upgrade and have installed all the lastest drivers for the equipment in my system and have all the current windows updates.
When I first turn my computer on from off, it loads normally, but when ever I try to restart the computer say after a windows update or software update the system shuts down as it should but locks up on the Windows boot screen, just before the four colored dots show up that become the windows flag. I thought maybe there where processes going on so i left it to see if it would load and after waiting 90 minutes there was no change. I powered off the computer and then restarted it and the windows boot repair loads. I tried using system restore as it wants to and it didnt fix it, I also tried letting it fix it without system restore and it couldnt.
Has anyone seen or had this problem? Im trying to avoid repartitioning and re installing everything if i can help it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Randym

A:Windows 7 freezes on restarts only

Randym,

When you upgraded, did you install the OS over Vista or did you wipe your harddrive and install? Usually, a fresh install would never have this type of error, so I would be certain that if you back everything up, do a fresh install, and let windows update install the drivers, leaving you only to install the ones it doesnt get, you should be fine. Also, i see that you have two harddrives. Take everything off of the 500GB HD that you need to back up, and transfer it tto the 1.5GB HD. Then i would say that you should wipe the 500GB HD, and reinstall Win7 on this harddrive. Then, transfer everything back over to the 1.5TB HD that you dont want deleted, and wipe the HD on this one. It should be all good after this.


Let us know,
Ben

Hi,
 
I have a Dell XPS 435 that's been giving me progressively more trouble over the past month or so.
 
The first indication of trouble was maybe 2-3 months ago. Infrequently while watching a video the screen would turn to random rubbish (similar to photo1.jpg) and either freeze up or restart. Once I restarted the problem wouldn't reoccur for days/weeks.
 
Within the past 2 weeks the situation since degraded to multiple restarts or freeze ups every time I turn on the computer. Sometimes it freezes on the Dell startup screen (photo2.jpg), almost always at this exact point in the progress bar. Other times may either freeze or restart on the Windows login screen, immediately after I login, or within 5 minutes of logging in.
 
Sometimes during the freeze up/restart cycle I will get a dialogue screen prompting me to enter Windows Recovery. This invariably suggests I do a system restore. Sometimes system restore works, sometimes the computer freezes during the restore process. Either way it has no apparent effect on whether the next boot will be the one that stays on.
 
Once the computer stays on longer than (approximately) 5 minutes, it will not freeze up even if I leave it on all day - as long as it is in use.
 
However, if it goes to sleep, it will almost always freeze up when it wakes up.
 
I am really not sure where to start troubleshooting this. I saw in another thread that someone requested a Speccy log so I installed and ran that. Result... Read more

Oh, and I know when the latest freezing and BSOD happened: the freezing happened today (2013-09-05) at about 8:48 (that's my local time. I hope it will be the same in the event viewer logs...) and the BSOD happened yesterday (2013-09-04) at about 23:20 (again, local time). I have also checked the driver details if there are any "?" or "!" icons which supposedly tell that something's wrong and there were no errors.

First I thought it's the psu but I bought new and that didnt't fix it. I have also tried another win10 installer stick and different video card. I have also played around with the bios settings but nothing seems to fix it. Note that when I try to install win10 on safe mode I get past first step and after the necessary restart, pc freezes again. Also tried the memtest and got 1 pass without errors and thought it's probably not that. What could be the problem?

Hey, I've been having this problem for a little while now and have had a hard time pin-pointing the source.

It seems to be caused by the network card I have (look in my specs). Whenever I stream videos using ORB the computer will reset what seems to be about every 10 minutes. When I stop streaming, it stays on. Sometimes I'll leave it idle for about 6 - 8 hours, get home and notice that the mouse isn't on and the machine is just locked up. The only way to recover is to reboot.

This did this with previous releases of 7 but I thought it would be fixed in the RTM. I have the most recent drivers for my NIC.

If you need any other info about my machine that isn't posted in my specs, let me know.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

go into event viewer (type event viewer in search) go to th windows logs, application tab. Look for errors (they have red "X" in left column) see if any relate to either the NIC, or the rebooting issue. let us know what the results are

Hey everyone.

So have windows 8, did a fresh install about a month ago actually.

Now I would restart once, get to the screen with the windows tile and then it would freeze with the little dots moving around. Then I'd restart and it might get to the log-in screen and freeze. Either way, I was able to get it to run after two restarts usually.

Now I'm up to about 3 restarts. I disabled hibernate and fast restart, as I heard there were issues associated with that.

Just today did a restart and it had errors restarting, tried to do a repair, and only gave me system restore as an option. Then another restart got it going.
So.... what can I do to fix this?

Much, much appreciated

As the title says, i have a Pc running windows 7 ultimate (32bit) and lately it has started to randomly freezing or restarting.

Systems mother boards onboard video stop working sometime back, installed a Nvidia card and had no problems after that, dont know if its somehow related.

Things I've tried

-Disk chk
-RAM test

thats bout it, no new software or hardware was recently installed and i have auto updates off so nothing system wise was changed much.

Dont really have any idea where to go from here other than trying a fresh install.

I might add that sometimes the system works flawlessly, and can stay on overnight without issue and sometimes it freezes up withing 10mins of starting it.

Thanks for the help, let me know what additional info may help.

Ok, so the other day my 1-year old daughter snuck inside the computer room and spent a minute or so turning my desktop computer on and off repeatedly. I didn't use the computer untill today and within a couple of minutes or so playing Battlefield 4 it froze. Later it also froze while web browsing using chrome and also during boot up. I've also had a couple of BSODs (system service exception, and something with a reference to an address 0x0000001, which I can remember). I've had problems with the ram before on another computer so I tried running Memtest86+ with all four memory sticks installed and it soon resulted in the error in picture. I then tried playing BF4 again with only two of the sticks installed untill it froze, and then switching the sticks untill it froze again. I also tried running Memtest with only 2 sticks installed but I'm not able to reproduce the error.

There is most certainly a problem with the RAM, but could there also be a problem with other hardware?

Hey,

Two things.

I would make sure that the bios is set to Optimized Defaults then save.

I would also unplug the machine from the wall for a minute or so at least, then test again.

Hey guys, I am having some trouble with an old computer (approx 5 years old).

Just done a fresh windows 7 install a few weeks back and problems have been arising since. Mobo/CMOS battery has also just been freshly replaced.

Some of the BSODs as reported by bluescreenview include PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP, SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and BAD_POOL_HEADER.

The system used to be overclocked (both CPU and memory). I have since downclocked the processor to its default speed and underclocked the memory and loosened the timings in a hope it may be related to the problem but nothing has helped so far.

I also get complete freezes in windows 7 from time to time, requiring a reboot. Also run chdsk on both connected drives and nothing unusual has been reported. I have also run a check to verify that the windows file systems integrity is ok.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi my computer friends,

I usually try and fix any computer error's by Googling the crap out of it until I fix it myself as I hate to be defeated but I have a problem that just started about a week ago and wont stop.

I watch alot of movies online through streaming and recently the shows that i usually watch without a problem started taking alot of time to load and then as i start to play it freezes on me. What happens is I still hear the video but the picture freezes on me and then the browser starts flickering on and off the not responding. After it flickers and tries to fix the problem itself the screen goes black and computer shuts off then restarts. Im not sure what is going on but my whole windows 7 seems to be going so slow lately with slow startups as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I will try and follow any directions you give to fix this problem.

I could not attach the other file as my computer keeps restarting during the scan...sorry.

Also I have ran Malwarebytes a few times and removed anything it had asked me to as well as a checkdisk and system restore and nothing has worked. I believe it might have something to do with the dns host file but that is just a guess.

Thanks,

Jackie

Hello folks,

I?m having some PC issues and was hoping someone could help me fix them!

Last Friday I swapped an Asus HD 6770 for Gigabyte HD 7850. It seemed to work ok in Windows but crashed / froze in all games, benchmarks and when playing HD video. It would either crash to a black screen, or a green screen with dark green vertical lines. I tested it with the last 5 driver versions inc betas but had the same problems each time.

So since nothing else had been changed, I concluded that the new GPU was at fault and RMA?d it on Wednesday. I then put the HD 6770 back in, uninstalled 13.3 ATI drivers and then re-installed 13.1 or whatever the last non-beta was.

So after reverting everything back to how it was, I still get random freezes and BSODs when doing basic stuff like using Firefox, or even when the PC is idle, not just under 3D load as before.

I tried System Restore, Windows Repair, everything... but all with no luck so last night I re-installed Windows with nothing but mobo drivers and Firefox but the problem still persists! After anything from a few minutes to a couple of hours it will still freeze and either just hang on a unresponsive desktop, or a black screen where I can still move the mouse but nothing else.

I?ve ran Memtest86+, Chkdsk, and sf /scannow, all of which passed with no reported errors. Temps never get too high either.

It has only froze twice since re-installing Windows (once when trying to install Chrome and another randomly), but it ... Read more

Hello and sorry for the intrusion or any inconvenience.

I am running a "Windows XP home edition version 2002" Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4CPU 2.80GHz, 2.00GB of RAM

The problem persists after a while on the computer. My computer restarts, and/or freezes and sometimes when I try to restart my computer screen acts as if it is in sleep mode and never turns on, only after a while that I have my computer off does it start normally. Only recently have I had this problem where my anti-virus doesn't want to start up. Also when I tried to run a "GMER Rootkit Scan" my computer automatically restarted itself, so I can't do one.

I have a windows XP installation disk, would you recommend me to send my computer to a fix shop?

Hello,

Since the past month,ever since I reinstalled Windows on my PC (I reinstalled it because I couldn't get past the bootup animation),it's been going haywire!My PC gets BSODs at random intervals each time with a different code .

Also, I would like to add that my PC stopped booting up after I had to force shut it down (PC wasn't responding ) .But earlier than that the PC was in perfect working order.

The BSODs and freezes had seemed to have stopped when I used chkdsk c:/ command once. But suddenly, after 3-5 days my PC has started to freeze and get bsods again (today).
I have attached the file from the log collector
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thank you

Hi all, I recently upgraded my graphics card from a geforce 9500GT to a GTS 250, installed the appropriate drivers, and now im having strange problems. Before upgrading, I did get an occasional BSOD but not enough to really cause a problem.
This happens mainly when using metro apps. It will lock up, than the screen shuts off as if I just shut off the computer. There is nothing in event viewer except a kernal-power error which natrually occurs from restarting improperly. Aside from reinstalling the OS I'm not really sure how to fix this problem. I am very tech savvie, I solve things like this all the time but this one is stumping me.

I have another OS on another drive (from which I am posting this btw) and it always functions properly, so I think I can rule out hardware problems.

Hey guys my pc is crashing constantly and I am not even able to launch it properly. I think it is hardware related. Anyways here is the dump. Thanks in advance.

I have Windows 7 64bit installed at the moment.
When I boot my pc I am offered a launch up repair,resulting in a BSoD.
When I want to choose the "Start Windows Normally" option, W7 either freezes on the boot screen with nothing doing or on the "welcome" screen it is like 10seconds, then freeze, and thats about everything.

Atm I am on Safe Mode w/ networking waiting for the next freeze.
I appreciate every help guys. Thank you for your responses.

Today I have had like 5 BSoDs. one saying something about watchdog.sys, the other was nvlddmkm.sys or something similar, then there was a system exception as well.

A week ago, this 'freezing & restarting problem' made its appearance. I firstly formated my drive and installed 64bit XP and then again Windows 7. Although I installed XP, the problem persisted.

None of my hardware is overclocked.
