and i have installed the latest drivers for everything, video card, mobo, etc. The BSOD thing is so bad that it happens within at most a couple of minutes into windows 7. A lot of times the bsod occurs while logging in.

  1. which drivers are you using, do you know how to check the virtual memory? Cat 10.4 or 5 seem to be very good, 10.7 not sure, make sure the virtual mem is at least 3069 min, 6020max, get bluescreenviewer and see what the event is causing the BSOD's
  2. I am using the newest ati drivers:
    the one posted on 9/15/2010.

  3. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow. Type the following command, sfc /scannow and then press ENTER: see if it says no errors, run windows and see if the BSOD's abate
  4. running the sfc/scannow now, might take a few minutes.
  5. so here is the results of the sfc/scannow command:

    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
  6. i haven't gotten a bsod since the scan, and its more then ten minutes lol for the first time...
  7. when you run SFC(System File Checker) it only reports if it CANNOT repair the files, what it does fix, it never tells
  8. so it does fix something? like what most likely?
  9. something in the file system, the checker never tells
  10. also how do i modify the virtual memory to set it to 3gb min to 4gb max?

  16. Virtual memory, before you change the VM setting check what they are set at, mine was 2046 and windows recommended 3069, I posted this a few times but read this:

    Win7 seems to have more than the usual amount of problems with BSOD's, lots of threads and lots of varied results, ATI drivers are a headache, but I am using a Nvidia card, I have 4 computers running Win7 Ultimate(64 and 32bit), 1 laptop and 3 desktops, none are reliable yet, have search the MSFT socials, and every place that my search engine(not Google) will find, lately tried switching to 64bit to see if there is any improvement, 15 days later and they started(BSOD's) again, I had always thought that Win 7 had a memory leak, mostly because the causes were so different, no rhyme or reason for them, everyone had different issues, so the last time I had to reinstall I did a dual boot with XP so I could run my old games, that destroyed being able to Restore to a earlier time, 10 days later the problems started again, this time I disconnected the HDD that has all my apps on it(WD 500G), figured I'd spend some time checking everything again, when I rebooted it ran fine, reconnected the HDD and rebooted and more problems, disconnect the HDD all is well, HMM though the HDD is dying right, NOT, it's a WD so I ran WD Diagnostic tools, no problem, ran every HDD Daignostic tool I could find, no problems, I am assuming the tools are right and the drive is good, so why is the the second drive causing me problems, looked in the System Settings, went to Virtual Memory, and checked the settings
    Control Panel
    Open System
    In the left pane, click Advanced system settings. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.
    Click the Advanced tab, and then, under Virtual memory, click Change.
    Clear the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives check box.
    Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file you want to change. "C" for me
    Click Custom size, type a new size in megabytes in the Initial size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) box, click Set, and then click OK.
    the Page file size was 2046, but the recommended was 3069, that was strange, the system had allocated less page file space than it recommended, so I clicked on Custom size changed the Minimum size to 3069 and the Max size to 6020, clicked the Set button to the right and OK at the bottom, reconnected the second HDD and rebooted, started and ran fine and has been fine since then, 5 days now with out a BSOD, considering that it was BSOD at boot before I hope that my issues are done, so if you have tried everything alse and can't seem to get a handle on why you are having BSOD's, try this, and good luck, will advise later.
    a small ammend here, I tried to upgrade to IE9, caused such problems, had to strip the drive and reinstall everything, but it wasn't Windows 7 fault, it was the IE9 upgrade failure look in Tips and Tricks for how not to screw up

    BTW thanks for the vote
  17. I know it was windows 7 issue...i guess at this point its best to wait for windows 7 sp1 or something lol...again thanks a bunch...but ill keep posting to this thread for further bsods, if thats ok?
  18. the SP1 patch was release some time back, if auto updates is automatic look in installed updates for KB2259539, that's the SP1
    and it's the one you have to remove to do the IE9 upgrade, it's part of the upgrade package, and double installs=FAIL
    Good luck
