    I have been getting BSOD for months now. Tried reinstall of Win 7 with no luck a few months ago. Problem still persists. I have provide the zip files based on the instructions for BSOD issues. There are lots of the dump files but ones from 7/26 and 7/27 are the latest. As a side note, when I keep the machine running for days or weeks without shutting down it seems to not go to the BSOD, but with I shut down for a few days (weekend) and when I start it back up it just does it repeatedly like you see in the files dates and times.

    Please Let me know if you need any further files for analysis.

    Thanks
    Mark

    Hi,
    all dump files are the same as the above. Bugcheck F4 means that processes and threads vital for normal operation were, for whatever reason, terminated.
    It appears that the process terminated is wininit.exe.
    Wininit.exe is a critical system process the Windows requires in order to function. It basically allows services to start up and run which is why if it's removed then Windows simply cannot run.
    Please run these scans to check for os corruption:
    File scans
    Right click on the Start menu icon and from the revealed list choose 'admin command prompt'. Type:
    sfc /scannow
    press enter and await results

    In the same command prompt and after the above scan has finished type:
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    Press enter and await results (longer this time).

    If the first scan found files it could not repair but the second scan is successful, run the first scan again using the same command prompt box and this time it should repair the files found.

    Total Space: 114.4 GB
    File System: NTFS
    Model: Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120GB ATA Device

    Please ensure your SSD is fully updated firmware wise and also the above free space is kinda on the limit and ideally it would be better if you could free up a little more?

    Please update your drivers using your motherboard support page:

    athrx.sys Wed Nov 24 00:11:58 2010: Atheros network adapter driver please update

    BiosVersion = V2.3
    BiosReleaseDate = 09/18/2013
    SystemManufacturer = MSI
    SystemProductName = MS-7850
    SystemVersion = 1.0
    BaseBoardManufacturer = MSI
    BaseBoardProduct = B85-G41 PC Mate(MS-7850)

    The above Bios version is old and current version stands at version 2.9 with quite a few compatibility updates. Flashing the bios can be risky and you should only consider this if your comfortable. Perhaps there's a local computer store who could flash it for you?

    If after making the above changes you are still getting the bsod then run the driver verifier.

    In order to run the verifer you will also need a recovery disk/USB.
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/instantanswers/3a747883-b706-43a5-a286-9e98f886d490/create-a-recovery-drive
    This is just in case the verifier causes a blue screen loop on start up. If it does you can then use the recovery disk/usb to boot into the recovery console, enable safe mode and then turn the verifier off.

    Hopefully by that point the culprit will have been caught and written on the dump file.
    How do I fix a Blue Screen in Windows using Driver Verifier?

    Post any new dump files.

    Windows 7 version of DISM doesn't have the /restorehealth switch available.

    Thank you for the help so far. I found that the Restore health did not work either.

    So I have update the mother board driver as well as the Samsung SSD (By the way I used this machine mainly for a server and use the other hard drives for data). I could not figure how to update the network drivers. So we will start with these two for now and see how it goes.

    I did work with some guy on another board back a few months ago and he gave me a bunch of drivers to update with links but it did not help the BSOD issue at all. Even when I did not load any extra software on the machine at all. I cannot remember if I did the firmware on the SSD.

    I will let you know how it goes over the next week or so.

    Thanks again
    Mark

    Hey Mark,
    Yeah sorry about that, I created the post mistakenly thinking you were running windows 10, (it's quite late here)I did realise my mistake but forgot to remove the dism stuff.

    As pointed by Neemobeer DISM will not work with Windows 7.

    Thank you for the update and hope all goes well. If you should bsod then please post back with the new dump file.

    Here are 4 new dump files from last night. If nothing new I will go back to original response and keep working it.

    Hi,
    as you can see same again.
    If you simply run the latest version of the Magician software then you can see if the firmware needs updating or not:
    The download you need is top left, version 4.9.7:
    Download | Samsung V-NAND SSD

    athrx.sys Wed Nov 24 00:11:58 2010: Atheros network adapter driver please update
    I'm pretty sure your network device is connected via USB? We need to know the full model name/number so we can find the correct drivers for you.

    Please install the rest of the updates.

    Please post any resulting dump files.
