Hello, I recently did a computer reset (deleted personal files, but didn't do a full drive clean) have been getting frequent blue screens of varying errors ever since.

 

Note: I have had some power related hardware issues in the past (If I unplug my laptop and pick it up sometimes it turns off immediately even with 100% battery) though, this issue has been around for 2 years and I have not gotten blue screens prior to the computer reset.

 

I have updated my video card, and wifi drivers thus far. (wifi didn't work prior to reinstalling the driver)

 

Windows update never moves from 0KB's downloaded (I think it is downloading but insanely slowly) I have managed to get 80-90 updates installed, but I usually just blue screen in the middle of the "download" process, and then find out the past hour has still downloaded not a single update (no option to update and restart). Will probably manage to get through the rest in 12 hours or so.. hopefully.

 

Naturally updating via device manager doesn't work, have to do manual updates through the browser.

 

Speccy Snapshot: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/dfnjwJe1xFOpN5lnc5CLWD8

 

 

Note: I am lucky to stay on for 10-15 minutes without getting a blue screen, so any scans that require a long time to complete and need my computer on are unlikely to be possible. (Took 3 tries to finish Sysnative without getting a blue screen)

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Mod Edit :-  I have deleted the post you accidentaally made in in Win 8 Support.

Hi,

 

I believe that the logs didn't make the trip. Can you try again?

Alright, can you run https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576333/driver-verifier-bsod-related-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/ for 24 hours (or so)?

When using Driver verifier what exactly is supposed to happen?

I followed the steps and restarted after it prompted me to do so, but didn't notice anything different, does it run in the background?

Got it working ran for roughly 30 hours, majority of the time would have probably been sat at a blue screen when I was afk if that matters any.

 

Out of curiosity checked through the dump listed 1 error each, likely caused by fltmgr.sys, aswSnx.sys, aswbidsrivera.sys, and 28 from ntoskrnl.exe.

Thought I just had bad luck and if I tried another reset things would go better.

Reset failed and windows no longer boots up, restore point got deleted in the process, safe mode can't boot.

System refresh and reset both fail half way through.

Is there anything other than completely reinstalling windows at this point?

Edit: Also auto repair can't fix it.

Hi,

 

Sorry for the late response.

Driver Verifier runs in the background. Once you enable it and restart your machine, you shouldn't notice it, except for some performance issues.

Thought I just had bad luck and if I tried another reset things would go better.

Why did you reset your machine? Did Driver Verifier fail or were you just sick and tired of the blue screens?

I was just tired of the blue screens. I assumed the first reset had gone wrong and stupidly thought a second attempt might fix it. Thought worse case scenario it would be back to square 1, didn't expect it to completely crap out on me.

Tried memtest and it shoots up to 16k errors within 10 seconds and aborts due to too many errors immediately.

Is this a bug or is my ram just that bad?

MemTest86 is generally quite reliable, so it's likely that your RAM is bad. Which is a bit of a surprise, if I may add, considering the dumps mostly pointed to pool and severe memory corruption caused by Avast. Can you try reseating your RAM sticks and ensuring the DIMM slots are clean? Are the voltages set correctly according to your motherboard manual? Can you make sure that your computer is dust-free as well? Your temps are a bit high, but currently it's summer so they could actually be normal...

Fans were pretty dusty, was only able to get to 2/4 of the ram sticks, one of the screws wouldn't budge.


Can't exactly test individual ram if I can't get the screws out, sent it to a local shop, see if he can.


Sidenote: I've tried reinstalling windows 7,8,10 reformatted both drives, and ran chkdsk/SFC multiple times.

Nothing worked, so not sure what else it could be if it's not a hardware problem.

Will update when I hear back from the place.

Guessing the ram got messed up during the reset and started the corruption, which avast probably made worse.
