Windows 7 startup BSOD

  1. Hi techspot,

    I'm having trouble with BSOD/s occuring only during my first startup. I have consulted technicians for help and so far, these is what they have done.
    NOTE: BSOD/s already occurs before these changes were made.

    Intel Core2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.50GHz's 2 pcs of Kingston 2Gb Memory Modules were tested.
    * Memory Modules have been checked numerous times and they turned out ok. (MEMTEST)

    * Found a bad sector in previous hard disk and replaced it w/ a new hard disk.
    * Suggested that the BSOD may be due to the PSU and so I have availed a better PSU.

    >Video Card, Hard Disk, PSU have been replaced and have been checked.
    OS Windows 7 64bit format in the new Hard Disk.

    I thought, these should have solved my BSOD problems. Surely enough, they did not.
    BSOD still happens during the first startup of my PC.

    I'm running out of options and so I would like to ask for your help. I have attached the dump files
    that have occurred lately after these changes were made.

    The minidumps are pointing to a hard drive issue... Have you scanned for malware? Are your technicians still available?

    hi. There is no problem with regards to malware after I scanned.
    The hard drive is newly installed , and no other programs have been installed.
    It was also tested for any bad sectors.

    the technicians are available, although I again need to bring the unit to them for inspection (2 separate technicians). It seems they have different opinions regarding the matter and thought that the changes made solved the BSOD problem.

    Well, tell the techs about the continuing BSOD's and it may be a bios setting that is causing this

    I will tell them and inform you of its progress.

    Im having suspicions about the remaining parts such as maybe a faulty motherboard, RAM (I read from the thread you provided that some faulty RAM can pass the MEMTEST), and/or unstable current from the outlet where I plug in the AVR. Might these hardware problems relate to the dump files I have attached so I could suggest the technicians onto going over these as well?

    I have exhausted possible options from changing the PSU, hard disk, and video card. The BSOD problem remains unchanged even after these replacements.

    Hi. told the techs about the BIOS setting that may be causing the BSODs and they told me that there was nothing wrong about it.

    any suggestions? :(

    ...and they told me that there was nothing wrong about it...
    So no more BSOD's? If there still happening there is something wrong

    BSOD still happening. They suggest it might be a hardware issue but they could not trace what it is.
