I have had some fits with a PC that, despite my best efforts, seems to want to have random BSODs.

 

I recently ran tweaking.com's Windows Repair (seems like a decent program...but who knows) and the system seems stable.

 

I have the most recent dump before running that tweak. I ran it in the debugger but hell if I have the time or knowledge to understand all of the symbol issues it reports.

 

Can anyone give this a shot and see what may have gone wrong?

 

I'll upload the file if anyone is willing.

 

Thanks!

Let's start with some fresh information.
 
Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.
 
The following screen will appear, click on Yes.

The following screen will appear, click on Copy to Clipboard.

In your next post right click inside the Reply to Topic box, then click on Paste.  This will load a link to the Speccy log.
 
 

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
 Checkmark the following checkboxes:
 
• List last 10 Event Viewer log
• List Installed Programs
• List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
• List Minidump Files
 
 Click on Go to start the scan.  Once it is finished highlight the text, copy it and paste it in your next post.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Sorry for the delay. I had erroneously THOUGHT the issue was eradicated after posting this and a couple of days with no problems, many reboots and stress tests. Well, sadly, this was a mistake on my part, but the machine is no longer in my possession. I will likely be able to check it out again in a day or so, so please stand by. I appreciate the response!

 

Just to give some more background, the OS has been restored to factory condition, but NOT a complete replacement of the OS; I did not have any Vista full OS media available. The BSODs continued after this and even some extensive rootkit cleaning procedures that showed no infections.

 

Again, when I get the machine back in my possession I will post the SPECCY info.

 

Thank you very much.
