BSOD Windows 7 64bit

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Alright well, I don't even know how this happened... I got home today, booted up my computer and began to experience some driver crashes (blah blah has unexpectedly recovered blah blah) from my GFX card, so I decided to try and reboot in safe mode, remove the drivers, and reinstall them. So, I presume to restart, and smash the hell out of F8 before boot.. long story short I didn't get it to boot in safe mode. Fast forward a couple minutes, I reset the computer again, but this time after the windows logo it BSOD. This is the first BSOD I've ever gotten on this computer, and the worst part is I cannot even read the error message because it flashes so damn fast I don't even get time to read the first sentence...

The build for the computer I'm speaking of is in my signature in case you're wondering. (P.S This computer is less than a month old).

So here are some things I've tried:
1. System restore via installation disk ===> Resulted in nothing, still BSOD.
2. CMOS the MOBO because maybe it's a possible OC failure? ===> Resulted in nothing, still BSOD.
3. Removed any external devices ===> Resulted in nothing, still BSOD.
4. Tested RAM ===> Resulted in no errors, still BSOD.

Sorry if this isn't a very informative post, but I'm still very confused as to what the hell even happened. I didn't install any programs before the first reset, and I didn't change any configuration files of any sort, so why the random BSOD? And the fact that I CANNOT read the damn error message is making it 100% worse because I have no idea what the root of the problem is.

Any suggestions?

The only idea I can come up with, is somehow between the reset and the reboot, the GPU completely killed itself?

To be clear: you cannot get into safe mode? If you can, then you just need to disable automatic reboot on bsod in windows. This will make it easier for everyone to help you out. If it is letting you in safe mode, try http://lmgtfy.com/?q=disable+automatic+restart+system+failure+windows+7 so you can capture the bsod.

Well initially the point was to get to safe mode just to reinstall the GPU drivers, but when I hit F8 it doesn't bring up the traditional menu asking to boot in safe mode it brings up the ASUS menu that asks which drive to boot from. So disregard the safe mode issue right now, the main issue the fact that I cannot even get past the Windows logo because it immediately goes to BSOD after the logo stops pulsing.

Download Ubuntu Live ISO, burn the CD...

Boot the CD, recover your files off of your hard drive...

Use GParted to Reformat the Disc Drive.

Plot in Windows 7 DVD

Reinstall Windows 7.

Takes about 30 minutes, problems solved.

I would recommend that, for future reference, if you buy a program like Acronis True Image, or learn how to do it in linux, that you create a Drive Image of your Hard Drive, this way you can restore your computer back to working condition in minutes, after of course you save all of your files using Linux / Ubuntu.

There is no magical program ot fix windows, other than Windows Recovery Console, IF YOU HAVE A BACKUP.

If that is the case, then simply insert your Windows 7 DVD and go to "Repair My Computer" option, after you start up the DVD.

Yea sadly I created a disk image to my external HDD instead of actually burning it to a disc. And since my computer was in such a f'd up state, the drivers were inoperable so I couldn't use the disc image on my external to flash it back to my disc image. The repair options on the Windows boot disk didn't really help, I tried doing some system restore, I did chkdsk on the drive in the command prompt, and I ran a memory test just to be sure; all to no avail. Then when I chose to use a windows backup, I couldn't access the disc image on my external since the drivers weren't working and it wasn't detecting my external HDD.

Ended up having to do a fresh install.. still don't know what the root of the problem was, I'm assuming some driver caused it or a registry error.

Can you remove the External Drive from it's casing and install it inside of your computer? (This should work)

Hello! smile.gif

Can you please navigate to C:/Windows/Minidump and zip / rar up your latest dump files? Once you've done that, please attach the zip / rar to your post by clicking the paperclip icon in the reply / post box.

Oh sorry for the really late response.. I already fixed the issue I just ended up doing a fresh install of Windows 7. The C: drive wasn't even accessible so there was no way for me to even access any of those files. The root issue is still unknown, but at this point in time I'm going to assume it was a registry error. It's alright though, file loss was very minimal as I hadn't installed anything really important on here besides Skyrim so I just lose my progress but, whatever.. computer is up and running 100% now. Thank you for the input everyone.
