Preferred Solution: BSOD on fresh win7 x64 install

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I have been getting bsod for a while now and on a bit of research tried memtest86 and had errors on test 13 (corsair vengeance 8gb 2 X 4gb) so I went and got some new ram (corsair vengeance pro 16gb 2 X 8gb) and at the same time a new ssd for a fresh install of win 7
so fresh install of win 7 (with old ide not connected) on new ssd and new ram and also within the last month a new 700w power supply and a new gtx 960 video card and im still getting random bsod
any help would be much appreciated
Thanks

Been getting this BSOD randomly. Thought was the vga card as computer would not wake up the next morning after being on all night. And computer would not POST once, only worked when took out vga card and used onboard video. I've since purchased and installed a new vga card. And reinstalled windows 7. But just got 2 BSOD today. So seeking some help here.

A:BSOD even after fresh install of Win7

Hello Subby,

I am not an expert on reading dump files.
But as reading your post, i am thinking it is the problem of your PSU. Maybe your PSU is not compatible with your Graphics card.
Can you post your system specs?

I've been having random BSOD crashed for about a year now, since I assembled this machine. 3 or 4 different error codes, all of which pointed to memory issues from what I could find online.
I performed a fresh install of Win7 a few nights ago, including a format of my HDD. 2 or 3 days later, the first BSOD occurred.

Basic Information:
Win7Prox64
Intel Core2Quad Q8300 (@2.5GhZ) Processor
Gigabyte P31-ES3G Motherboard
4gigs DDR2 PC2-8500 Ram (2x2gb) Memory Master RAM
300g Western Digital SATA Velociraptor HDD.
Radeon HD5750 Video Card

Attachment includes my System Health Report (Html file) And the Bluescreen Dump report (Both as requested in the posting guidelines forum).

Thank you in advance for any and all help

Memory corruption possibly caused by malware bytes
I would run memtest and remove mbam and replace with Microsoft security essentials
Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.
Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (Cx05) probably a driver.
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have a Raid update its Driver.

Memtest.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

Driver Verifer






Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition.
Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is.
But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver.
Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows.
If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise.
Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like.
From my limited experimentation it makes the BSOD's come faster.
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

If you are using win 8 add these
- Concurrency Stress Test
- DDI compliance checking

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen.
Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly.
The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out.
If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.
If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Thanks to JGriff2 & Usasma.

It is difficult to diagnose from a single DMP file because there are no trends to follow. That is the case here. The analysis points to the DirectX portion of your video driver/card, and can either be a video driver or the video hardware itself.

I would first re-install the video driver using this

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

Or Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.
Also of note some really old software (below) was the running process at the time of the crash. I would see if there is an update or remove it if not essential.

Check your power configuration for your drive and set it to never sleep.

You may ask if this is bad for the SSD, but in reality, it is better for the SSD. It will allow the SSD to do trash collection and maintenance when the system is idle. See if that solves the 0x9F crashes.

Outdated and Problematic Drivers:You should update/replace/remove the following drivers. Any drivers that are known to cause BSODs, please remove the software or remove the drivers and then remove the device; steps to do so are given after the list of outdated drivers. If you have ASACPI.sys installed, make sure it is updated and not pre-2009; pre-2009 versions are known to cause BSODs:

ENE USB Consumer IR Driver for eHome
http://www.carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=usbcir.sys

To update drivers, make sure to download the drivers from the manufacturer and not using 3rd party programs. Your drivers should be found from your motherboard support site (ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, etc.) or your vendor support site (Dell, HP, Toshiba, Sony, etc.) first. If you have devices you bought yourself, the drivers for those devices need to be downloaded from the manufacturer support site for those devices. If you need help, let us know.

To remove drivers, do so by uninstalling the device or software associated with the driver. Devices can be uninstalled through device manager, and then the device itself should be physically removed from the system if possible.Uninstall or change a program

Open Device Manager
3rd Party Drivers: The following is for information purposes only. My recommendations were given above. The drivers that follow belong to software or devices that were not developed by Microsoft. Any drivers in red should be updated/replaced/removed. You can find links to the driver information and where to update the drivers in the section after the code box:

As soon as I clicked on the FB favorite, I got a BSOD.

This is a newly built computer, well, almost newly as I only changed the CPU and added 4GB of RAM to my previous setup.

Current system specs (cnages are in bold):

OS: Windows 7 Home x64
CPU: Intel C2Q Q9650 @ 3Ghz
MB: Asus P5K
RAM: 4x 2GB OCZ Reaper PC2-8500 @ 1066Mhz
GC: Asus EN8500GT 512MB DDR2
SSD: OCZ Vertex Turbo 60GB 1.5 FW (SYSTEM)
HD: 2x Seagate 500GB

Previous system specs:

OS: Windows XP SP3 x32
CPU: Intel C2D E6750 @ 2.66Ghz
MB: Asus P5K
RAM: 2x 2GB OCZ Reaper PC2-8500 @ 800Mhz
GC: Asus EN8500GT 512MB DDR2
HD: 2x Seagate 500GB (SYSTEM)

I also had a previous crash but no BSOD: the screen went dark and Winamp began to loop indefinitely 1s of the track I was listening to. I had to manually reset the computer.

Thanks in advance for your help!



Hi and welcome

This latest crash was probably caused by usbuhci.sys. This seems to be a usb driver for an eternal device like a webcam. can you give us some info about what devices are on the system?

thanks

Ken

Hi all

My good lady has been having some problems with her computer. so i did a fresh install of windows 7 on her pc and a few days ago she got a BSOD. The pc rough specs are

AMD FX-8120 stock clock
8 gb of ram 1333Mhz
3 sata HDD - 2 x 120GB 5400rpm 1 x 120GB 7200rpm
evga 550 TI soc
gigabyte motherboard

all the drivers are up to date i believe. i thought that a fresh install would sort out all the problems but i guess not, witch got me thinking that it could be a hardware issue maybe but im not to sure and thats why i am here. i have used the DM Log Collector and attached the file to the post.

thanks for your time
i didnt no where else to go

Hi LoneBear,

Welcome to the 7forums.

First of all, thank you for the excellent job with filling in your system specs

Please remove the Gigabyte software, the Gigabyte software is known for causing various of problems.
Please check the manufacturer of the motherboard (Gigabyte) for BIOS updates.

Unfortunately, after many tries I can't read the dump file properly what makes that its information cannot be trusted.
This could be due to hardware problems.
(Soon I will give it a few extra tries to read the dump file.)
Please follow instructions below for testing the hardware, if there are any questions please don't hesitate to ask them.

The above drivers should be included with your motherboard support. Check your motherboard support site for the most up to date versions. If you need help, and even if you do not, we recommend filling in your system specs on your profile (not in a post in this thread). System Info - See Your System Specs can help with filling in the system specs.
Security Software: ??? I recommend either of these two setups:Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Good and Free system security combination.
Download and install the security setup of your choice, update the software, and then run a full scan of your system for viruses and malware. If you only install MSE, I would also suggest installing and updating Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download, but do not start the free trial/full version of Malwarebytes. Run a full scan with Malwarebytes after updating it. Post back the results.

Hi. I'm getting BSODs with KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR frequently on a Dell XPS L702x Win 7 x64 Home Premium SP1 system that's been freshly formatted and the Windows re-installed. I've run the memory diagnostics and they find no errors. The chkdsk /f /r frequently finds errors and tries to fix them after each crash.

I've used the SF Diagnostics to generate the necessary information and attached the Zip file. Please help. I'm ready to trash the whole computer. Your help is much appreciated.

A:BSOD on fresh install of Win7 on Dell laptop

Is the Dell diagnostics partition still on the hard drive? If it is run the Dell hardware diagnostics. F12 at power on will access a sub menu and one will be the diagnostics.

Also, I see a lot of Microsoft drivers in that report. Although Windows will install many drivers, the best ones are the Dell provided drivers. If you haven't done it, install all the available Dell drivers and see what that does, although with the hard drive errors, that may just be a defective hard drive.

I've spent probably 7 hours trying to figure this out from searches and different potential resolutions and I am completely stumped. This is a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium on a fairly basic machine. I can boot in to safe mode, disconnect any connection to the network, ensure WOL is turned off via the CMOS, and still Windows 7 will not shutdown. There is no BSOD. It simply appears to shutdown, but then the computer reboots with the PC offering a beep in the same way as if I performed a cold boot. If I elect to restart this beep will not be reflected.

I've tried different drivers and just about everything I can think of and still nothing. The event viewer appears almost entirely clean as well. I've also restored fail-safe defaults in the BIOS as well as Optimized and the issue persists. Any guidance is appreciated.

A:Fresh install of Win7 - No BSOD, but won't shutdown, only restart

I would reinstall again....sounds like some sort of the installation has gotten corrupted. Then make sure you have all the latest drivers from hardware makers.

Hi Vesparion.

Update internet explorer manually .... http://windows.microsoft.com/en-IN/i...r/download-ie/

Get rid of intel rapid storage. First uninstall it from Control Panel > Programs and Features. Then Uninstall the driver from device manager.
Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
It will open the "computer management" window.
Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
Expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
Select one Intel device item under it, right click, uninstall.
Continue the process for all Intel items under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate native system driver.
Let us know the results.

A:Fresh Win7 x64 Install - BSOD / ntoskrnl / 0xf4 / CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERM

Also, last night after posting I thought to remove the Intel HD 4600 graphics driver, and then try the Catalyst 13.9 driver (just the driver not the whole Catalyst package). That provided some stability as I was able to work for quite a while.

Then I started to connect my external hard drives again, one at a time, and see if things remained stable. On the first one it seemed fine, but on the second I got the BSOD on bootup. On a whim, I tried moving that one to a different USB3 port. So far, it's been stable up and running overnight and this morning. It wasn't doing much at the time, so that could be coincidental, but it did do some CrashPlan backup tasks and this morning I browsed for a bit and installed a software package, and so far it's still up.

Just more information and clues for anyone who is willing to look at the dump files. Thank you!

Hi lsaw2.

Your crash dumps are not showing finite cause, but they are stop 0x3B, usually caused either by RAM or by any driver failure..

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.
If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If memtest86+ is free from errors, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Hello all,

I have a vaio laptop with a dual boot win7/vista setup. I simply want to format the whole drive back to one large c:\drive, then reinstall windows 7. I have heard horror stories of people saying their boot manager becomes corrupted. or goes missing. I enclose a snapshot of my hard drive config. I would appreciate any advice on this matter.

Thanks

A:A fresh win7 install over a win7/vista dual boot system ?

is it the only HDD in the laptop (i used to think 1 was the max but i've been encountering people with two recently)? If so, (and if you want to wipe the hard drive completely (don't forget to deactivate any programs, such as iTunes)) just put the install disc in, boot into it (without booting into windows), choose the install option that isn't 'upgrade' (i think it's 'custom' offhand). when it takes you to the partition manager, click 'advanced' on the bottom bit and delete and format all partitions until you have just one big empty disk.
If that doesn't work or if you think it might not, just boot into a Puppy Linux live cd, open up gparted and select the 'new partition table' tool.

I had a run-in with MS Office 2007 that ended up (my bad I'm sure) necessitating a repair install of Windows 7 (64 bit) after a complete uninstall of Office. The Windows repair went well with the exception of a couple of drivers; easily adjusted.

Then I did a clean install of Office 2007. It sort of went well. Except that every time I try to do something with it (like accessing Visual Basic to put my macros back in), it's telling me - incessantly - that files don't have sufficient permission blah, blah. Well, I'm setting the permissions but it's over and over and feels like every file in "Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/..." needs permission attention.

Is there ANY way to avoid doing this over and over and over and...? And could I have avoided this by setting something different in one of the installs?

Sigh.

Thanks as always for the help.

All I get is a blank screen. Then I tried other websites - Google, AOL.com, Yahoo, etc, all work just fine. BTW, I was using IE10. Then I installed Chrome and also Firefox. Both of these can access any website, but not MSN.com - again a blank screen for both. Any ideas what could be wrong?

A:Fresh install on Fresh SSD of 8.1, restarts into BSOD

Hi MitchellTyner,

First, I looked up your motherboard and it does not formally support any OS beyond Windows 7 so that could be an issue right off the bat; however, if you are running the latest BIOS, you could try and set your BIOS to default values and try that clean install without the 7870 first. Then, if it works, you could try installing the 7870 thereafter. BTW, good luck in finding all the correct drivers for your older hardware as well.

A:BSODs after fresh install of Win7

Hi. . .

Sorry to ask, but is this copy of Windows 7 Ultimate genuine (legit)? I am getting symbol errors in Windbg, which means that Microsoft (the MSDL symbol server site) cannot identify some of the Windows drivers, likely due to patching, including the primary NT kernel driver itself.

The dumps really were of no help to us due to the symbol errors.

You only have 19 Windows Updates installed. There should be about 400, including Windows 7 Service Pack 1. Windows Update installation is a must. You have to get ALL of these updates installed. The current build number is 7600; will change to 7601 once SP1 is installed.

In the event that we are dealing with hardware failure here, I would start with RAM diagnostics.

Run memtest86+ - run 1 stick at a time; alternate the slots - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/har...memtest86.html

Then run HDD diags. Run SeaTools for DOS, LONG test - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/har...agnostics.html

For a start, you are almost certainly outside the licensing rules.
OEM licenses cannot be moved between machines - ever - and can only be moved between motherboards for reason of failure, and only them to a direct equivalent board (as defined by the manufacturer).

As regards your updates - do them in batches of 10 or so, starting from the oldest, and see if that helps.

Hi,

At what point during the install process is it best to install Updates and Service Paks for:

- OS
- NIC
- Drivers
- Apps

After windows security essentials is installed? If so, is it safe to launch a browser and navigate to microsoft to download Essentials, or should this be done off USB stick?

A:Fresh Win7 Pro Install: Best way to get Updates?

I download before hand and save all of the above to thumb drives.
This is my routine for a clean install is once windows is installed and I'm at my desktop.
I start with the latest drivers for my key hardware, motherboard first, then video card, sound card, NIC and so on. I do printers and such later on as I need them.
The I do the major Microsoft updates, service packs if there are any, DirectX, IE, Media Player, Silverlight, Microsoft Security Essentials, Microsoft Office. Then I hit Windows update and keep patching until there aren't any left.
Then I move onto other stuff like Adobe Reader, Flash player, Java, etc. stuff I use right away.
The rest of my programs I just install as needed.

I just bought a Lenovo ThinkPad SL410 with Win 7 Pro 64-bit installed. Of course it's crippled with bloatware and of course I wiped the hard drive clean for preparation of a fresh and clean clean install of Win 7 Pro 64-bit. I was gonna use my installation disc and product key from my MS action pack subscription account but figured I shouldn't waste it on this laptop since it came with its own product key.

Before wiping the hard drive I did create recovery discs from the pre-configured/installed hidden recovery partition. How can I install the bundled Windows 7 Pro 64-bit minus the bloatware (as if I'm doing a fresh install from a retail disc) so that it uses the product key included with the laptop?

Hi guys,
I'm having a weird problem.. And I'm unsure if this thread belongs here or in HDD section.. Please advise.
Please read the full explanation for better understanding.

I bought a new SSD for my office laptop and pulled out the old one to install on my Ultrabook..

I created a USB stick with my Samsung Win7 DVD, removed the HDD, put the SSD on it and ran the install. (NOTE: Before I installed new OS, SSD booted fine with old OS in my Ultrabook) I booted the stick, deleted the partitions and started the fresh install.. Everything goes smoothly until restarts.
After restart the laptop won't boot the SSD!! It searches for other bootable media, and if I remove all, just goes to boot menu.
I don't know what's happening and I already repeated installation 3 times without success.

Please help.

It is not shown on My Computer and it doesn't list but it does list on the Bios on computer start and is enabled on the motherboard. It is an older IDE dvd burner 16x I believe, and it last operated just fine, (it did, after all, install Win7 from a DVD on fresh install.)

Any ideas?

For some reason, I cannot install Win7 onto this new gateway PC that I have, but am able to do it on my older PC. Both are capable of running 64 bit, both have new and working memory, hardware. Now I understand that when you do install windows for the first time, your hard drive "marries" your motherboard. Thus when I put the hard drive into the new machine after a fresh install, it gets stuck on "windows is starting" and refuses to boot (ClassPNP.SYS in safe mode). So is what I am trying to do possible? If so, how do I do it?

A:Transferring Fresh Install Win7 HDD to another machine?

If you use a program like Acronis True Image with their Plus Pack add-on it allows you to do a Universal restore to unlike hardware.

There are other programs which do the same thing.

You will need a separate license to do this.

But I must say that if you can't do the install on that hardware then something is wrong with the hardware and moving the OS from one PC to the one you can't do the install on may not work.

So, I'm having that issue to where I can't connect, something to do with my IP configuration. I am connecting through a D-Link usb modem to a wireless router, which is the same setup my wife is using on her desktop to connect to the same router/modem.

Here is a screenshot of my ipconfig:

I saw that gateway is blank, not sure if that matters or not, but possibly it does.. x.x Help?

A:Fresh Win7 install, can't connect to internet.

a 169.x.x.x address shows it cant reach the DHCP server, be it a problem with the adaptor or a problem with the modem.

Have you reinstalled the drivers ? Go onto the manufacturer web site and check for the network drivers. Incorrect drivers can cause the adaptor to perform problems.

Hi Everyone,

From my Win 7 install, I did a backup to my second drive (I have two drives - one has the Win7 install and the other for data). So I copied data from the Win7 drive to the second drive; did a fresh install of Win7, then moved files back from the second drive to the Win7 drive.

Now the issue I'm facing is, that I can't see any of these files in the Win7 drive, even though the Win7 drives shows 13GB used space and I've set it to "show hidden and system files"

I've tried every method I know of (including search, etc...) but can't see anything,.

Would really appreciate some help on this, pls.

Hello and welcome bizres mate you might try Partition Wizard Best Free Partition Manager Freeware and free partition magic for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition.

Click on the partition you see where that data is and then click Explore. See my pic it should open out and then you can further open out as you want.

I suppose another thing is how did you transfer the data?

A:Fresh Win7 install randomly won't start/new HDD

Compare the install you did with the perfect install compiled in Clean Reinstall Windows 7.

In the final step it explains how to determine which Dell partitions to keep - essentially all should be deleted during the booted install except the utility partition if it will still run Dell Hardware Diagnostics from F12 Menu which I would run now to test and check the hardware. Sometimes there are diagnostics in two places on F12 menu: Diagnostics and in the Utility Partition itself.

If hard drive test passes then also run a full Disk Check

I'm currently on the same Internet but through my Ubuntu (which works flawlessly). Which leads me to believe it's either an option I have hidden away somewhere in Win7 or my motherboard having trouble communicating with the ethernet port with Win7.

Any ideas? It's day 5 and it's driving me nuts!

I have just installed (and reinstalled) Windows 7 Pro (32 bit) on my system, and get no boot animation... the number 7 morphing from the Windows logo.

Instead I get the text Starting Windows and a small red dot in the centre of the screen!

Windows does boot correctly and there seem to be no related issues, so I am not overly worried, though it is certainly odd!

Anyone else seen this?

What could be causing the problem?

you must turn features off to reclaim space, such as the restore point feature, you will never get it down to 16 gigs though. maybe ~30 gigs

Hello everybody.
I recently reinstalled win7 after several years of successful usage.
Today, about two weeks after resintall, programms started to start slowly. Small programs that used to go up in less that a second now take 10-20 secs. Sometimes, closing and restarting it immediately comes up instantly, but after a minute or so things go back to worse.


Only thing that comes to mind is that I installed OpenVDB client for testing, but removed it and rebooted machine several times.

I'm running defragmentation for night, but I don't have high expectations here ...

Any tips how can I debug this ?

A:What are the subdirectories in Program Files in a fresh Win7 install?

If you've only had the factory preinstall you've never even experienced actual Win7 perfect performance.

So I'd do what most tech enthusiasts do and get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

At the minimum I'd Clean Up Factory Bloatware until you can get a decent clean reinstall.

I'd get rid of MucAfee googling the special tool required to uninstall such a terrible infection, Cyberlink, Nero, Symantec, Eegis, Evernote or Fooz crapware, all of the Acer utilities which duplicate and interfere with better versions built into Win7, Office preinstall unless it has free Starter. But you're still left with a second-rate install.

Hi,

I just reinstalled win7 on a new hard drive and during the installation process, I split the disk into two equal partitions of 500gb. In 'My Computer' I can only see one partition which is the C drive but not the other partition. Looking in Disk Management, the other partition seems to be labelled as 'Unallocated'. How can I allocate this into a usable D drive? I would have expected this to happen automatically during the installation process.

Thanks you for your help.

A:Cannot see partition after fresh install on win7 on new hard drive

No it doesn't happen auto. In disk management right click on that un-allocated space and select create partition. follow the steps as they come up.Partition or Volume - Create New
Once that is done that new partition will probably have the drive letter E. You need to change the CD/DVD drive letter from D to F then change the HDD partition drive letter from E to D. Then you can go back and change the CD/DVD drive letter to E.

I hope that you meant "router" when you said "modem".
 
Who is the manufacturer...what is the model of the "modem"?
 
Some devices combine the functions of modem and routers...call themselves modem-routers.
 
If you have two distinct devices (modem and router), then connect the system directly to the modem to test connectivity.

Welcome to Seven forums, boxieblue.

1. Yes, you can re-install using the upgrade DVD.

2. Look at these tutorials:

Hello, I am completely new to the forums so please forgive me if I do not include any necessary information.

I have been plagued by several BSoD's for a few months now, I thought I had fixed the problem a while back but it seems to have returned. They first started when I was on Vista, in which case I thought I caught the culprit of faulty RAM and bought new. I just upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate x64 2 days ago and have been getting more BSoD's. I am currently running Memory tests, and Hard drive tests. I have not installed any new hardware recently. I'm not quite sure what else to try.

I will include screen shots from Bluescreenview.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Joshua.

A:BSoD on fresh OS (Win7 UltimateN x64)

I would like to add that during a memory test (today) I noticed it said that it had detected "Hardware Problems". Though before it finished the test, I returned a few minutes later to see that it had BSoD'd again. I just bought new RAM about 1 to 2 months ago, because I thought this was the issue for my previous BSoD's. Can this be a faulty RAM slot? What are my options.. and how can I tell if this is the actual culprit? I will be running memory diagnostic a few more times having reseated the ram, as well as chkdsk. Thanks, Joshua.

A:BSOD at fresh installation win7 x64

Is your BIOS up to date?

What about your SSD firmware?

Those are key for getting an SSD to work properly.
Additionally, reset your SSD hardware/software connection with the BIOS and clear any corruption on it: Try doing a power cycle of the SSD. The following steps should be carried out and take ~1 hour to complete.Power off the system.
Remove all power supplies (ac adapter then battery for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and drain all components of power.
Reconnect all power supplies (battery then ac adapter for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
Turn on the system and enter the BIOS (see your manual for the steps to enter the BIOS)
Let the computer remain in the BIOS for 20 minutes.
Follow steps 1-3 and physically remove the SSD from the system by disconnecting the cables for a desktop or disconnecting the drive from the junction for a laptop.
Leave the drive disconnected for 30 seconds to let all power drain from it.
Replace the drive connection(s) and then do steps 4-8 again.
Repeat steps 1-4.
Start your computer normally and run Windows.

The above steps were a result of: Why did my SSD "disappear" from my system? - Crucial Community

While that may not be your drive, a power cycle should be the same on all SSD drives. See how the system responds after the SSD power cycle.

Hello this is my first time posting hear so please go easy on me. Me and my fiance just finished putting together her first real gaming computer and we wanted to use a Patriot 64g SSD to put win 7 on and use a 1TB Seagate drive for all the rest of the storage. The installation of Win 7 onto the SSD went nice and smooth but when we get into windows it is not detecting the 1TB HD at all. Funny thing is that when I go in to the SSD properties, I can see the Seagate under the sharing options. The only info I have found is how to clone off an existing hard drive with Win 7 on it not how to do a fresh install on 2 new drives. Any help would be great.

A:Fresh win7 install on SSD and will not detect new Seagate hard drive

Try this, right click on computer in the start menu, select manage, in the left column select disk management. Look for the seagate drive in the lower portion of the window. When you find it, right click and select 'change drive letter or path' in the next window, select add. Thake the drive letter windows offers or select another letter from the drop down window. You should be able to see it then, if that is your problem. If that does not work, please post a screenshot of the expanded disk management in your next post.

Hi all,

I just finished installing Windows 7 Ultimate X64 on an Asus motherbord, i5 intel. I was checking the root folder my C:\ drive, and I realized that besides the standard folders (Program Files (x86), etc.) there is a file called bootsect.exe

Why is this there, and can I delete it?

1) I used Acronis 2014 to wipe my SSD drive (fast)

2) Installed Windows 7 by choosing the advance option (not the upgrade)

When I look at my hard drive structure via the Disk Management, I do see the proper (and hidden) 100MB NTFS System Reserved partition, *in addition to* my regular OS.

Is there anything wrong with this then?

Thanks for your help.

So, I tried to clone my Win7 install and move it to a new 256gb SSD from my HDD. It didn't work. Something about the boot process didn't get cloned over or something. Whatever. No big deal. I needed a fresh start anyway. Just installed Windows 7 on the SSD and then rebooted. Now, every time I boot up, I get the below picture with 2 Windows 7 options. I always pick the first and it boots into Win7 fine from my SSD. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks!

 

A:Solved: ?Boot manager trouble after fresh Win7 install on SSD

Click the Windows Button > Type "msconfig" (without quotes) > Select the Boot tab. You can either change the Timer to 0 so it selects the first option automaticlly with no delay. or you can delete the second option.

Hi,

I replaced my old HD with a new SSD and installed Win7sp1. Now I sometimes get BSOD flashes followed by a restart.

The most serious problem though is that the system frequently locks up. Nothing functions except the cursor. Happens very randomly.

I'd rather not go through the whole ordeal of reinstalling windows as it took a Microsoft tech remoting in to put through the windows authentication. Please help.

Thanks,

Courtenay

Hi. ..

There are no BSOD dumps in the attached zip file.

Check your SSD manufacture's support site for firmware upgrade.

Hi I've done a few searches for my situation but any solutions seem to involve reformatting drives which I cant do My system consisted of a C-drive on ssd and other sata discs partitioned to give me drives D E F K and V I replaced my Fresh and previously now drives 'unallocated' Win7 install full ssd with a larger ssd and I in my innocence thought all I had to do was a new Fresh Win7 install and previously full drives now 'unallocated' install of Win Home Premium b Fresh Win7 install and previously full drives now 'unallocated' on it and all would be hunky-dory I had to do a new install rather than restore an image for reasons I wont go into now From those of you in the know I sense tuts and rolling eyes My bios sees the discs for what they are and sata in the bios is set to AHCI but windows Disc Management sees one large unallocated drive I'm unable to give them drive letters or check ownership as they're not visible in Windows Explorer As I already mentioned I cant do anything that will risk loosing information already on my sata drives so how can I make them visible to Windows once again with all their partitions and drive letters as they were previously please tell me I can

A:Fresh Win7 install and previously full drives now 'unallocated'

Post a screen shot of what you can see in Windows Disk Management.

You say "one unallocated drive", but you also earlier say "2 other sata discs".

Are these purely data drives that have no traces of an OS on them?

How exactly are you trying to give them drive letters?

Do you have any other PC to which these drives can be temporarily attached to confirm they can be seen and are not outright defective?

A:Unwanted automatic restore at every reboot after fresh install of Win7

Okay, seems this has nothing to do with system restore, but the hard drive is suffering from something called "SSD groundhog day" or "SSD time warp" syndrome. Apparently no cure for that, so I decided it's time to retire the drive and buy a new one. Hopefully it works better with the next install.

A:Suggestions / possibility of a clean, updated Win7 fresh install

Ok, made it thru moderation....

I was browsing other posts here, this one from Callender allowed the 3172605 July rollup to apply:
svchost.exe High CPU usage 98% of at least one CPU. - killing Windows update in services.msc

But after a reboot, now it wants to install 38 critical and 37 important updates. I just don't understand this.

This particular PC is a Asus Zenbook UX31A that had Win8 installed. User wanted Win 7, which I finally got to install by changing BIOS USB support to "AUTO". After the plain jane Win7 Pro 64bit install, I did have to add about eight drivers for Wifi, USB3, USB-ethernet, Graphics, etc. Could those drivers cause these very old updates to now show up as required? Oh, it is even asking for Service Pack 1 for x64 again. Grrrr.

Hi.
I just did a fresh install of Win7 Ultimate SP1 on my PC, since the previous install was all crooked and had problems with viruses.
Now, I would like to keep Win7 just as a temporary tool, since all I want to get is the Win10 Upgrade tool and get the new release.
Since I don't want to install all 230+ Updates before getting the Upgrader (GWX), I'd like to ask which updates I mandatorily have to install in order to get the Upgrader. Microsoft's page regarding the update (KB3035583) does not tell me that I need some updates beforehand.

Any Ideas?
