i tried to find and fix my bsod from google but couldn't...
1. windows memory diagnostic came ok.
2. i ran "driver genius": it sayed my drivers are up to date and cleaned my "invalid drivers"...

so - will you be my solution?

· OS - Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 or Vista? win7 ultimate
· x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? 32 bit
· What was the original installed OS on sthe ystem? win7
· Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? i installed it years ago
· Approximate age of system (hardware) 7 years
· Approximate age of OS installation (if you know) 3 years ?
· Have you re-installed the OS? not recently

· CPU amd athlon 64 x2 dual core 4800+ 2.50 GHZ
· Video Card ati radeon x1200
· MotherBoard (if NOT a laptop) acpi x86 based pc
· Power Supply - brand & wattage (if NOT a laptop) ??

· System Manufacturer
· Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom)

Laptop or Desktop? desktop

Probably your graphic card is going to die, i mean 7 years is a long time. anyway, what were you doing before BSOD?

jcgriff2 Said "Sorry, but I'll be out now for the rest of the week for surgery. If I can get online, I will."

And he is the guy that help us here, i see him in almost all threads. So we will have to wait

Welcome to TSF,

I looked at your dump files and there seems to be 1 thing in common with all of them.
When attempting to rebuild the stack trace (moments leading up to the BSOD) one driver is in all instances.
AMDK8.sys (AMD CPU Driver)

For Some reason the driver initiated a C1Halt which would force the CPU into a sleep state. I dont know the workings of the AMD driver so this could actually be a normal powersave function when your system is at idle.
But everytime your system BSOD the AMDK8 driver was in the stacktrace with amdk8!C1Halt

To begin lets check your CPU temperatures. Could you download Speccy from my sig have post the CPU temps at Idle and at full-load. Maximum temp is 65c to 72c before thermal tripping.
Then we need to test the CPU
CPU Benchmark - GIMPS - Free Prime95 software downloads - PrimeNet
* Caution this test will generate a lot of heat please attempt to remove all dust from the PC case in particular the CPU Heatsink prior to running this test.

If the program or PC crashes when running the test its a possibility that the CPU is on its last leg but can also indicate faulty RAM as this test will also stress the RAM.
A stable CPU can run this test forever without crashing but i wouldn't recommend it with an aged CPU like yours. Please monitor your CPU temperature when running this test if it starts creeping over 100c stop the test.

Post back your results.

I would still clean out the case and check that the CPU heatsink and fan are correctly fitted. If theres no contact between the CPU and heatsink in these old CPUs they pretty much overheat from boot.
