Im getting alot of Blue Screens lately, why?

Hi guys, I have a Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit computer, its a pirated version of the OS and Ive been using it for around 5 or more months (the PC is 2-3 years old). I usually get the BSOD when I log out of an account on my PC. I wont be able to quote what it says on the "Blue screen" but its something like: "If this is not the first time this has happened, check if all of your components are installed properly" or something like that, Im not 100% sure.

Anyway, what does this mean? Are these "Blue screens" harming my PC? Help, please!

  1. The three main causes are:
    -Drivers
    -Memory
    -Registry

    If its your drivers then you can fix it by simply updating all of your drivers

    If its your memory it could mean your memory is defective or you don't have enough

    And if its your registry then your screwed

    Good Luck :)
  2. Im not sure about my drivers, I know that my Graphics driver is up to date and everything else is stock (I installed the drivers with the CD). I have 6gb RAM memory so that cant be the problem. What do you mean "registry"?
  3. I copied this from the microsoft site just to get the clearest answere: "The registry is a database in Windows that contains important information about system hardware, installed programs and settings, and profiles of each of the user accounts on your computer. Windows continually refers to the information in the registry."

    It goes on to say: " An incorrect change to your computer's registry could render your computer inoperable. "

    To fix it you could download a regestry cleaning software, BUT many of these are fake and can be harmful to your PC. Another way to fix this is to manually edit your registy, but only highly experienced users should do this and I highly reccomend you don't. I don't know much about registry cleaners so i won't recommend any because i am not sure which ones are safe. Also even if you found a legit one, they can sometimes do more damage than harm by deleting important files.
  4. Also those CDs that contain the drives are most of the time waaaay out of date. What GPU and MOBO do you have?
  5. Hey, Im sorry for answering late. I have a nVidia GeForce GT 640 (DDR3 2gb) GPU, and a AsusTek P8H61-M LX2 motherboard. My GPU drivers are up to date, Im sure about that because I use GeForce Experience which auto-updates the GPU driver.

    Also, heres what it says in "problem details" after my PC recovers from a "unexpected shutdown"

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
    Locale ID: 1050

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode: 50
    BCP1: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFD0
    BCP2: 0000000000000001
    BCP3: FFFFF80002C8AA4C
    BCP4: 0000000000000000
    OS Version: 6_1_7601
    Service Pack: 1_0
    Product: 256_1

    Files that help describe the problem:
    C:\Windows\Minidump\071614-19827-01.dmp
    C:\Users\Noah\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-50684-0.sysdata.xml

    I hope this additional info helps!

    Also, if theres a problem with my registry, does that mean my PC wont be usable anymore? And could I just bring my PC to a repair shop and let them fix the problem?

    P.S. I figured that after getting the Blue Screen when I restart the PC it takes a much longer time to boot up then usual, what does that mean?

    Thanks.

    UPDATE: on the Blue Screen it says that I need to check if my hardware and software are properly installed.
  6. Ok those details are crucial. "BCCode: 50" means BugCheck 50. This usually points to a memory issue. Your memory could be corrupt, so your computer keeps shutting itself down to protect you from data loss. Also a anti-virus software could be triggering these shutdowns as could really any faulty system service. Have you recently installed any software onto your pc?
  7. Yes, I have installed software recently. I installed Deamon tools yesterday, and some program called TCP Optimizer a few weeks ago. Im pretty sure Daemon tools is safe but Im not sure about the other program (Its supossed to improve your internet by changing some default router settings).

    I do have a antivirus called "BitDefender" but I have heard its one of the best free antiviruses out there. Are you sure that could be the problem?

    By "memory", do you mean ROM or RAM memory?

    A few sources turned up Deamon tools being a known cause of bsod. Try completely removing it from your computer and see if you still get them.

    Also, i meant RAM
