multiple bsod's - help please

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Documents.zip 899k .zip file
The computer in question is an acer laptop, extensa 5620.
no hardware changes, constantly having bsods. fresh install of win7, twice now.
I’m completely out of ideas, I’ve updated all possible drivers from the acer site, checked device manager to ensure no errors/conflicts etc, run checkdsk, memtest.
I’ve turned on windows driver verifier, tried using BlueScreenView to identify the drivers that need updating all with no luck. Finally I found sysinternals autoruns and the file collection app.

I’ve attached my output folder as well as the perfmon report.

Would really appreciate any help you guys could possible offer.


BlueScreenView list of bsod’s (check code, string and related driver)

That is a load of bsods. How often is it doing this? If youve wiped the HDD, done a fresh install, and youre still having issues- I think that its most likely a hardware error. Probably memory, it can cause loads of problems if it starts acting up. Look up memtest86+ and how to use it. Itll test your memory for errors.

One other think you could try is to download the SP1 ISO for Windows 7 directly from Microsoft. Youll have to make sure to get the version that matches the version that your Acer registration key is good for. Maybe something with the Windows installation disk you are using.

Considering that youve done multiple fresh installs, Im still saying its most likely a bad component. Memory and HDD are my first guesses. It could be bad drivers from Acer, but Im betting its hardware related.

Just because your memory passed a couple hours of memtest doesnt mean its not bad. Ive seen memory pass 4 hours but still crash the computer randomly. Then you move the memory to an entirely different PC that is 100% stable and it crashes that one as well.

Diagnosing a laptop is not as easy as diagnosing a desktop because the parts are not as easily available and interchangeable. If youve got a friend with a similar laptop try swapping his memory into your machine and yours into his. If his PC starts having weird issues but now yours is 100%, thatll be a big clue.

Ok, I'll see if I can get my hands in some other ram. Can anyone help by reviewing/analyzing my attached zip file?

Thanks again

well, I bought a new stick of ram (which i'll be returning).... still getting bsod's
can anyone help with diagnosing based on the attachments i posted? (the sysinternal autorun/collection app & system health report)...
this post http://www.overclock.net/t/1288510/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-8-7-vista suggested that I post the attachment.... can anyone help with the diagnosis, instead of just continuing to guess/test replacement parts?
