Worrying recurring issues with 7 64-bit (BSoD) - Page 2

Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology

Use HDTune to look it up. Copy and paste everything in the SMART section or take a screenshot and post it. It can be used to determine whether your HDD or cable is the cause of your problems.

Just got another blue screen out of nowhere while browsing on Firefox.

I was just browsing and then Firefox froze, but then I try to ctrl+****+esc or ctrl+alt+delete and it doesn't work. Other opened programs work fine, but eventually the ctrl+alt+delete menu opens, but freeze after I choose anything and then the blue screen finally came.

Not a good sign.

Download this and run it. You can put it on a usb stick and then boot from it. Let it run and see if you get any errors.

Yes, I totally forgot to mention that I did run that test yesterday. It didn't find any errors.

Well, I thought I'd post one of the mini-dump file I got from a blue screen. I have no idea how to read anything in there, but I'd guess it could reveal something?

Got ANOTHER Blue Screen in the same day... most of the time the physical memory dump says it failed, and it failed this time too.

EDIT: The .dmp files says:

Probably caused by : wininit.exe

A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been
Several processes and threads are necessary for the operation of the
system; when they are terminated (for any reason), the system can no
longer function."

EDIT 2: Apparently this could be caused by my HDD which is a large SATA drive (1 TB). I'm thinking of trying this hotfix:


Should I? Its not -exactly- my issue but the error is often 0xF4 which this article points out, and I do have a very large SATA drive...

EDIT 3: *sigh*

The update is "not applicable for my computer".

Well, back to that wininit.exe. Any suggestions?

EDIT 4: This is getting worse. Happened again in the middle of a game. Except what happened is the loading was eternal. Its like the computer can't load anything anymore. Only pre-opened stuff works and then the computer ends up crashing.

I could -not- get any usual fixes to work at anytime and it just wouldn't open windows through the CD or through the HDD. When detecting what drives are detected, it froze for like 30 seconds where he should find the HDD. I tried plugging it into another sata port, no success. So I decide to just unplug the HDD completely and try again. It didn't freeze at the drive detection part, but of course the computer didn't run.

Then I just plugged it back again, and NOW he saw the damn thing and here I am.

Well, it turned out it was the HDD that turned bad for some reason. I could get a new one thanks to the 5 year warranty, but the guy was really surprised when I brought it back, saying they never usually fail. Guess I wasn't lucky.

So thanks again.
