BSODs after reinstall, snail-pace downloads, many corrupt install files

Hi,

 

I did a re-install of Win 7 Pro SP1 32bit from a tried and true USB key. Now my download speeds are so slow that installation files and signatures become corrupted.  I am fully updated (after 5 hours). Also, SFC shows scores upon scores of unfixable and corrupted files. BSODs occur when not much else is going on in the background.

 

 

Also no matter the browser -- be it IE or Firefox, the browser will crash after just a few minutes of YOUTUBE or any video.

 

I have a Dell OptiPlex 80G HD / 60G free / 2GB RAM.  I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool for 5 passes with no errors. I also ran the bootable version of Memtest86+ for 2.5 hours with no errors and I forget how many passes. I read that it really isn't necessary to run those tests ad infinitum because faulty memory is so easily and so quickly identified.

 

I have ordered more RAM and they should be delivered next week. I will have 4X1G once installed. I read that 32 bit OS will only utilize 3.5G RAM so anything more than 4G is superfluous. Is that true?

 

I also am at a loss as to why there are so many hopelessly corrupt files as logged by SFC. Attached File  sfcdetails.txt   142.74KB   0 downloads

 

Than you in advance and I appreciate your help.

File corruption on a recent install of O/S...may indicate a problematical hard drive, IMO.

 

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.

Hi Louis! Thanks for taking the time to help me out. The hard drive is fine according to Sea Tools. But I am a true novice at this kind of stuff. I've been home-computing since I was a young teen in the early 80 and I know programs and such. But as for the stuff inside the case? We are not close friends.

Hi. . .

Several dumps named Atheros networking driver -
athur.sys    Mon Oct 11 05:09:09 2010 (4CB2D435)
It needs to be updated - http://sysnative.com/drivers/driver.php?id=athur.sys

These Vista era drivers should be updated, but you may have difficulty in finding updates -
b57nd60x.sys Sun Apr 26 07:15:34 2009 (49F44256)
igdkmd32.sys Wed Sep 23 15:18:09 2009 (4ABA7471)
ADIHdAud.sys Mon Jul 20 14:39:02 2009 (4A64B9C6)
http://sysnative.com/drivers/driver.php?id=b57nd60x.sys
http://sysnative.com/drivers/driver.php?id=igdkmd32.sys
http://sysnative.com/drivers/driver.php?id=ADIHdAud.sys

Is this your system?

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/optiplex-745

One bugcheck referred me to 0x23 - a problem occurred in the FAT file system

Are all HDDs/partitions NTFS? Any FAT32?

Regards. . .

That is my system, yes. Dell Optiplex 745. This is a refurb and the price was unbeatable. I didn't realize the complications though, Dell never offered WIN 7 with this model so the Vista drivers might be problematic. But they aren't the ones causing havoc -- yet. Could the FAT 32 reference be to a USB pen drive?

 

Also, just before checking in here I was cropping/sizing photos with Pixlr when I got a 3 line blue screen message that I have never seen before:

 

      ### HARDWARE MALFUNCTION ####

**** CALL YOUR HARDWARE VENDOR FOR SUPPORT ****

   @@@ THE SYSTEM HAS HALTED @@@

 

I will deal with those drivers and post back.

 

Thanks
