Looking for BSOD solution

By dshardy2004 ·
When I power up my PC, I get the BSOD. Then I start in safe mode and restart...BSOD again. But I keep going to safe mode then restarting and after about ten times, PC starts normally. Now, I hibernate instead of shutting down, and 99% of the time it will awaken normally; 1% of the time the BSOD again.

When running normally, PC runs good. Using McAfee and scanned with Housecall; nothing found.

Running Vista Home Premium. The point at which the BSOD occurs is when the screen is black, except for "Microsoft Corporation" at the bottom and the status bar with the running green indicator right above it.

Using Vista repair utility found nothing to repair. This problem also causes some updates to fail if the system must be restarted.

I reinstalled Vista without reformatting, did not fix problem.

I needed more drive space anyway, so installed new HD, removed old one, installed Vista from original CD. Same problem.

Where should I look next? Vista memory test found no problem with memory.

MB is Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3P

Thank you for your input!

Guess what the BSOD is for ??...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Looking for BSOD solution

It's for TELLING you what is wrong.

It's also so that you can tell us what is wrong. You see all the words written on the Blue Screen of Death?

Try typing some of them here. Especially the ERROR and the CODES below it.

They're not written there for fun.

A bit more info would be helpfull

by IC-IT In reply to Looking for BSOD solution

You may need to turn off automatic reboot on error to read the BSOD details. Please do so and post the actual error code and any modules that it points to i.e. the driver win32k.sys etc.

It could very well be a corrupt or poorly written driver.

Forgot to mention

For what it's worth, I was going to add that the machine worked good for 8 months before this started.

Would you care to list what the computer actually is?

by OH Smeg In reply to Forgot to mention

This sounds like either a Hardware or Configuration issue and is not related to the OS at all other than the fact that it's not running on that hardware correctly.

Also a P35 M'Board is a bit old for a Vista Install while it may work it's just at the minimum level for a Vista Install and a newer M'Board like a P43 or 45 Chipset would be better.

Also how much RAM is fitted here?

Have you recently

by IC-IT In reply to BSOD message

installed a new driver? That error commonly is caused by a driver issue.

It may simply need the Motherboard's chipset drivers installed.
