Windows 7 frequent BSODs

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
When I boot up my PC after not using for a while (3 days) I get a BSOD and have to use W7 startup repair for it. Why is this? Maybe a HDD error?
Thanks for help in advance smile.gif

I would check your memory, run memtest. Also, it's not a bad idea to check the hard drive for errors, scan it with the startup test.

How long has this been happening? Have you updated/changed any hardware drivers recently? This might be the most common cause of recent BSOD's.

This has been happening since I installed W7. Started with 32bit upgraded to 64bit hoping to solve the problem but it didnt. I have not updated or changed any drivers. Last one I did was 10.12but even then the BSODs were occuring. This only happens when I don't use my PC for a while. This started happening on my new build 1 month old (sig rig). I have a samsung 160 GB HDD 7200 rpm. The reason I specify this is cos when my PC finally recovers then it says that the new driver software for my HDD is installed. Just today actually my PC isnt recovering from a recent BSOD! It says Windows is loading and before the startup screen it goes black and all i see is my mouse, which is moveable. PLS HELP!

Have you made sure that your motherboard's chipset drivers are installed? Verified that you are using the 64-bit version of all of your drivers (I mention this because you said that you switched from 32-bit).

I've found that it's easiest to get random errors when doing an "upgrade" install--i.e. not a clean install from a formatted partition--did you install 64-bit as a clean install or as an upgrade install?

Regarding the startup problem, press the f8 key to start up in safe mode--usually after the POST screen--I just hit it repeatedly until I get the windows startup option screen (choose safe mode, or safe mode with networking), and it should boot to windows safe mode just fine.

Thankyou for help

Sadly I cant acces my PC atm. But when I tried that my PC randomly restarted and I couldn't acces it again. I managed to disable any OCs in case it was due to instability. I did a clean install (formatted my HDD and installed).
Since my PC won't go past loading screen I can't see if chipset drivers are installed as 64 bit but they should be. I can only do this tommorow.
