Solved: BSoD upon start up.
Hello. ^^

As the title says. I have had a BSoD in the past but never becoming more frequent (I've had over 8 today compared to 3 in the past 6 months) and usually comes from other unrelated events.

When I start my computer and reach after the loading bars, I get a blue screen of death or the occasional hang up (screen goes black and mouse pointer doesn't show). I restart again and go into safe mode and auto-launch Vista's Start up Repair program which recommends a system restore (I don't know how far back but according to Mozilla Firefox's auto-restore feature, based on inference, from a day to a few days). Sometimes I temporarily get into a BSoD loop before I can log in perfectly:
1. BSoD
2. Restart
3. Start up repair and possibly a system restore (sometimes it isn't needed before step 4)
4. Restart
5. Another BSoD, go to step 2.

Though this may have nothing to do with problems starting up and could be hardware/malware issues. I've read some threads concerning my issue but the vast majority of them doesn't have helpful answers although it provided material that can help such as memory dump files (attached below) and doing a chkdsk command which I will give to you because an error tells me that the disk is being used and will produce a log upon restart (which might take some time if I have the patience to endure through 2 or 3 more BSoD). Also, other threads suggest it could be driver related. I am having a driver problem with my keyboard. When I open a game, I enter an approximately 1 minute period where I cannot type anything and the Num Lock key doesn't respond. I usually wait this out but on the *very* rare cases, when it doesn't respond at all, I have to uninstall the driver, restart and allow the computer to auto-detect it and install the driver again. This has happened twice in the last months or so.

The BSoD loops started yesterday, spontaneously. I had barely done anything on my computer besides playing a game, reading fanfiction and that's pretty much it.

I am using Windows Vista home Basic, Service Pack 1 and running on an Acer computer.. I am not up-to-date because Vista's Start up repair program will undo the updates. I have not run an anti-virus scan as of yet because I doubt it could be related to viruses or malware but I could be wrong. I have not much knowledge around these but if you think it would help, I can do some logs for you.

Is there anything you guys can do? Any help, support or suggestions would greatly be appreciated. If you need anything else that could possibly help at all, please ask for it and I'll do my best. I fear my computer is on the path of self-combustion which is a big no-no! >=O

There is only one current minidump -- the rest are from August.

The current one reads:

BugCheck 1000007E, {c0000005, 8e27cc12, 8795b594, 8795b290}

Probably caused by : enethusb.sys ( enethusb+2c12 )

>>> Are you using a USB Modem? That appears to be a driver associated with it.

>>> Post a HijackThis scanlog for further review:

Download and install HijackThis. Run it and select "do a system scan and save the log file". Then copy/paste the contents of the log to a reply

>>> Also, verify if any of the problems you are reporting occur in Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking support, or a "Clean Boot" >>


First, restart in Safe Mode if necessary -- (tap the f8 key promptly on startup and choose the Safe Mode option from the boot menu) or Normal mode


Run msconfig and select the "Services" tab. Check "Hide Microsoft Services" and then disable the rest. Also uncheck "load startup group" on the general page. << written for Vista, but applies equally well to XP

Now restart and test the issue at hand

If no problems, run msconfig and recheck half the disabled items on the Services tab. Test again. If the problem recurs, UNcheck half the items you just checked to narrow down the culprit.

If the problem didn't occur, check the other half, so all the Services are enabled -- proceed to do this on the startup tab as well.

Get the idea? You want to isolate the problem to a specific startup if possible.

Note: if you already have items unchecked under msconfig > startups and are in “selective” startup mode – you should note what these are before beginning. They will need to be de-selected again.

Hello Rollin' Rog,

Thank you for your time in helping me. ^^ I do use a USB Modem and I can verify that the problems occur during a clean reboot and never in safe mode. I will get back to you on the Clean boot trouble shooting. Here is the hijacklog you requested,

Note: If I don’t happen to reply back in a week, my computer finally put out and calling my vendor for a replacement. I still have my warrenty, lol. <3

UPDATE: I have done the Boot trouble shooting on services and none of them produce the problem. Also note that during testing, "Kaspersky Antivirus" could not be disabled. I assume this is because of Kaspersky's self-protect module that prevents disabling itself by other means. I am now moving on to start up.

UPDATE: I have done the boot trouble shooting on start up and none of them produce the problem. Again, during testing, "Kaspersky Antivirus" could not be disabled. Also note that during the entire test, I had no blue screens. I will now enable everything and see if it produces the problem upon restart. After that, I'll continue to troubleshoot with Microsoft services.

UPDATE: I enabled everything - everything the way it was when the problem occurred - and now, the problem doesn't show up at all as if my computer fixed itself spontaneously. Should I still continue testing Microsoft services? I will wait for further guidance upon this matter. Again, your help is deeply appreciated. ^^

If the problem is no longer occuring, for whatever reason, further clean boot testing will not help isolate it, as the idea there is to narrow it to the one service or program which causes the problem.

When you get a BSOD, the most important item to note is the driver mentioned -- from that, if a 3rd party one, the reccomendation is usually to remove and reinstall the associated program.

This might be the drivers for the USB modem, if that one continues to recur in the future. Else test with a direct connection if practical.

And you're right, most antivirus and outside firewall programs cannot be completly disabled -- but I don't think they are involved here.

I don't see anything in the scanlog to be concerned with.

This running task however, should not be present except after an error, since it is the "windows error reporting" program >> C:\Windows\System32\WerFault.exe

Hmm, WerFault.exe should not be running you say? Maybe my computer was just preparing fot the BSoD that was to come, *laugh*. But anyway, it seems my computer is completely fine; I'm even able to update without it being undone by system restore.

Despite this however, I suspect it might be a ruse; a calm before the storm but I'll mark the thread as solved for now. Thank you for the help, Rollin' Rog. ^^

No problem, I can always remove the "solved" tag if the gremlin returns -- just update the thread if that happens

I'm not sure whether you've had a look at the System log in the Event Viewer (run: eventvwr.msc))

If you see any "NTFS" errors there, you need to run chkdsk. Other than that most things there can be ignored if they are not actually associated with a continuing problem.
