Hello everyone, thank you for taking the time to visit this post and offer your consideration.
In the last several hours my main computer has been dipping into increasingly more critical instability. The computer has had a number of relatively minor and infrequent issues during start-up for the last few months, but nothing I was unable to work around or which were truly problematic.
Last night, however, it suffered a BSOD while attempting to load up a game. Several hours later, it suffered another BSOD while it was unattended. In the hours since then it has suffered 3 more BSODs on a fairly consistent schedule, regardless of whether or not it is in use or, as far as I can tell, what programs or processes are in use at the moment.
In addition, my main anti-malware software, MalwareBytes Anti-Malware Free edition, has developed a persistent error since this morning. It will cause an intractable, unescapable hang in the system at a certain point in every attempt to scan, forcing me to make a hard reset of the computer.
The latest BSOD at time of writing produced this error message upon start-up:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
Locale ID: 1033
Additional information about the problem:
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Files that help describe the problem:
The .dmp file will be attached to this post in a .zip folder. The .xml file could not be found or retrieved.
My system information:
- Windows 7 Home Premium Home Edition
- ST310005 28AS SATA Disk Device (931GB)
- AMD Phenom II X4 840T Processor 2.90 GHz
- ATI Radeon HD 4200
That is unfortunately all the information I can glean with my limited knowledge. I can report that EVEREST Home Edition lists my Motherboard as "Unknown," but that and it's CPU type (2x, 2900 MHz) and System Memory (5888 MB) are all the program reports in regards to the Motherboard.
If there is any more information I can provide, please let me know. Thank you again for your time!
