  1. BSOD happens a few seconds after startup.

    I have tried safe mode and changing anything recent but nothing hardware/software is new.

    Running windows 7 ultimate.

    Minidump included.

    Thanks for all your help in advance!

    Registry Error, Ntoskrnl.exe... May be related to a failing hard drive. Is the C drive an SSD or regular hard drive?

    Yes it is an original set up, not with it at the moment to give you the specs but its a pretty standard desktop. Its a good 5+ years old so that may be a hard drive issue but I am still uncertain. Is there any other info I need to assist?

    Regards

    Okay, when you get a chance, after it boots into Windows go to Computer if you can get that far and right-click on the C drive. Select Properties, tools, check now. Put a check mark in both boxes to set a disk check on the next start up. If you can't do this, replace the hard drive anyway
