    Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.
    If you have installed any driver with Driver Booster 3, please remove them as it may cause trouble.

    An easy way to get remove these drivers is by using a restore point prior the installation.
    I began restoring each individually updated driver from Driver Booster 3, a total of 90 updated drivers or so, as I have no restore point prior to installation, and Driver Booster 3 decided to begin backing up my drivers during the process, deleting the original backed up drivers.

    I have several options available to me to move forward:
    1. I can just begin deleting every driver and associated files and let Windows update find them and manually reinstall the ones it can not find.
    2. Manually locate the manufacturer's site for each individual driver and verify the signatures to make sure the hardware and driver are correct.
    3. Restore a Windows 10 image backup to another drive and continue support from there. (Of course, this will not be possible without COMODO Backup)
    4. Fix the Windows 10 drive (most up to date with my files and browsing history) and continue support from there.

    1. Risky, my last test experience with DB3 was that it installed drivers from Windows (which it shouldn't) so if that would be the case with you too then you risk your system to become more unstable or unbootable
    2. Best would be to simply only install the drivers from your manufacturer
    3. If truly necessary I have no problem with it.
    4. This decision is up to you.

    1. Agreed. This really isn't my preferred method either.
    2. I'm thinking this is the route I will take, as I have the time and patience to do so right now.
    3. I'd rather not have to restore a backup when I have 2 drives already that are supposed to work correctly on this machine. Getting a third involved or processing one of the drives to be wiped seems more effort than collecting drivers in my opinion.
    4. It needs to be done regardless, as there is information in the Users folder I need which I can not access. That drive has a BSOD (Black Screen of Death) issue as well but that is not what this thread is about.


    I will use CPU-Z to precisely identify my hardware and begin compiling drivers on my other system and create an install script to make sure everything gets installed nice and smooth from factory WHQL signed drivers and append one giant log file for analysis after it's all installed. So if anything unforeseeable does go wrong with a driver install, a visible log file will help correct the problem.

    The reason I am going to this extreme is because I have been dealing with BSODs since the days of Windows 95, and there are two blanket responses proposed as solutions for BSODs: Update your drivers, check your memory. These are not wrong by any means, as they are, typically, the most common BSOD issues unless you can accurately reproduce a BSOD by a certain software action. However, for the first time, I believe this issue is neither, and I need to rule out, with concrete data, that this is not the issue. Once I update this machine with all the latest, correct drivers, I will come back with a log file simply for archival purposes until the next BSOD.

    You don't need CPU-Z to find the right drivers, 99% of the drivers are from the motherboard/laptop manufacturer. Peripheral device drivers need to be downloaded from the manufacturer.

    In the process of "fixing" my drivers, I uninstalled my current graphics driver to downgrade to Asus's drivers from the official website here, I encountered a bluescreen after attempting to log onto my system. Windows 7 is so helpful when it comes to BSODs, I miss this system.

    Code:
    Problem signature:  Problem Event Name:    BlueScreen
      OS Version:    6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
      Locale ID:    1033
    
    
    Additional information about the problem:
      BCCode:    1e
      BCP1:    FFFFFFFFC0000005
      BCP2:    FFFFF80003D9460D
      BCP3:    0000000000000000
      BCP4:    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
      OS Version:    6_1_7601
      Service Pack:    1_0
      Product:    768_1
    
    
    Files that help describe the problem:

    EDIT: After installing the official Asus graphics driver, I am now getting many "Drive Corrupt" errors such as this one:
    "The disk structure is corrupt and unreadable"

    I will return after a chkdisk scan and let you know the results.

    Edit: Ran chkdisk and uninstalled the Asus drivers to install the latest nVidia drivers to compare the two install logs. While running a differential comparison between the two files, got another bluescreen. Please see attached.

    Edit2: Color me shocked, another BSOD...

    Stop. Just stop right there, please.

    No more cookie cutter responses. Please take the time to evaluate my technical skills in the video below, complete with timestamp descriptions of each BSOD so you may better assist me at my level.



    We can discuss raw assembly instructions if necessary. I have come to this forum for help, not advice. If you need a test done, tell me what information you need and I will research on how to best give you that information. I do not need to be told to install specific software because it is generally preferred when it may not deliver the best results for my setup.

    With that finally off my chest, the HD Tune Pro 5.60 Trial has run on my Win7 SSD and is now running on my Win10 Hybrid drive. I am recording a stream of my computer just in case it BSODs again so I know where I can resume the error scan.

    I can provide you with gigabytes of low level instructions happening on the computer if required and can even send you the information pre-filtered if you want to view the activity of a specific program/service/etc/.., but I need more than "Run disk scans, redo your drivers, and please post your BSOD logs."

    There is a huge difference between advice and help. My post was based on the message that the disk structure was corrupted, that message is rarely displayed and it means that the disk needs to have attention. My post wasn't advice but help because more information is required about the status of your disk, a corrupted file system leads to various of problems.


    You may be a more advanced Windows user, but what I saw in your video is that you either are ignoring a lot of issues or your system is in a bad condition. What I've noticed is possible malware present on your system, software that a more advanced user shouldn't need/use and other things like ignoring important suggestions.

    I would recommend to format your disk, after backing up important stuff, reinstall your system on a (new) clean disk and check your hardware.

    Yes, it is in bad condition because I stress my machine out with custom programs, conversions, data manipulation, and other very intensive applications, and when things such as, oh, I don't know, a mouse gets plugged into a broken USB port and all of the low level functions running on the system suddenly cut out, yeah, I can imagine my system would be in "bad condition."

    However, you did not use any cookie cutter template this time, so thank you for that. Instead, you have told me to plop in a drive from scratch, which, well, I CAN do that, yes, and I think I will have to in order to find out exactly what the problem may be. I still believe a component on the motherboard has gone bad, however random BSODs aren't going to give me enough information to find out what component that would be.

    I have my initial recovery discs and a 160 gig drive right here, so once I have a factory reset drive, we may be able to diagnose from there.

    Attached are the results of the HD Tune for the Win7 SSD, the Win10 hybrid drive didn't quite get video captured all the way but it was green across the board. I've run "chkdisk /r" several times because sometimes the drive would simply BSOD if I tried to log into Windows without running it first. It has, however, yet to find any bad sectors, but does occasionally find files which weren't indexed properly due to the BSOD occurring while the disk was being written to.

    I might as well record my Win7 factory reset as well when I get to it, just in case it kernel panics during the install or something.

    EDIT: Actually, an interesting test will be to copy the recovery partition directly from the Win7 SSD to another drive. If the install is corrupt, then perhaps the drives are to blame? I'm putting gparted on my phone right now to accomplish this.

    EDIT2: Actually, I'd like to apologize for taking my frustration out on you in this thread. You are doing your best to help people, and not "giving advice" as I put it. You are taking your time and knowledge to help others and I'm taking that for granted here. I think what has me most frustrated is that my visual studio programs, which I foolishly did not back up nor copy onto some kind of repository, are on both the Win7 and Win10 drives, as well as some data I needed from the open tabs on the Firefox of the Win10 machine. I have no one to blame for the state of my machine but myself and my arrogant "I can fix anything" attitude. Again, I apologize for my behavior today and would like to continue working with you to see if we can get these programs at least stable to the point I can back them up.

    EDIT3: This is it. My coup de gras. I'm just going to remove the offending part to see if that fixes literally anything....
