Hi all,

I'm running windows 7 x64.

The BSOD occured after I used a program called driver hub to update my drivers. It was going well, however after attempting to download a driver (I believe it had to do with a USB driver but I can't confirm) my computer shutdown. I restarted the computer and tried to reinstall the driver, I also got a prompt to update windows so I did that as well. My computer shutdown again but this time it loaded into a BSOD.

I've tried to boot into safe mode and it starts loading drivers but then stops and shuts down. I tried to use last know good configuration but that didn't work either. I tried to load into automatic repair mode but that didn't work, and system restore doesn't work either. I do however have access to command prompt, windows memory diagnostics, and system image recovery (although it says windows cannot find a system image on this computer)

Technical Information on blue screen:

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xFFFFFFFF80000003, 0xFFFFF8800194A02D, 0xFFFFF880009A9468, 0xFFFFF880009A8CD0)

"1000007e" "0x490" means your Windows 7 Operating system is corrupt/hosed. If you don't have a recent backup, here are Microsoft's steps to attempt a repair of, or to replace Windows 7: Resolving stop (blue screen) errors in Windows 7

Instead of wasting your time on an outdated and unprotected Operating System though, highly recommend going ahead and installing Windows 10.

I agree with SpywareDr, it's best to install Windows 10. Your Windows copy is severely outdated, and troubleshooting would only be useful if Windows were updated and the SP1 was installed because the numerous updates your Windows copy is missing address and fix numerous problems including BSOD crashes. Until Windows is updated it is simply not worth it to try to help you on our end.

I'm surprised to see a breakpoint is involved, that's something that never should happen.
