First of all, my apologies if the file I attached doesn't work. I left the computer alone for 10 minutes (big mistake) while Windows 8 Log Collector was finishing and when I returned, BSOD again. When I turned on my computer again, the W8 folder was there on the desktop. Please tell me if it doesn't work, I'll do it again if you need.
I'm getting worried about this. The original OS was Vista. My computer didn't came with the CD, but as it is an Acer, there is something installed that can burn windows Vista into a DVD. Whenever I needed to format it and reinstall Vista, it would install the drivers too. When 8 came out, I dual booted it with Vista. I forgot to install the drivers, but it never had BSOD's, just occasional freezes.
Unfortunally, Windows Vista had 2 BSODs last week. Once I was watching a film on Media Player and on the other I was playing Tetris Battle on facebook. The BSOD was that driver power failure, but I was stupid and instead of searching for that on the internet, I decided to remove Vista and install Seven.
I used DriverMax to backup the drivers and then I installed Seven. Seven overwrited Windows 8 boot, so I couldn't use it. I was trying to repair Windows 8 with the DVD, but it didn't recognise it, so I formated Windows 8's partition and installed it again. This happened last Sunday night, and everything was fine.
Monday I started installing the drivers. First I installed it on Windows 8, and everything was working good. Next, I was going to install the drivers on Seven, the first ones had no problem, but when Drivermax started installing the Graphics Driver, I had the same driver power state BSOD. I thought it was a coincidence that that hapenned while installing that specific driver, I thought it happened because of the lack of drivers. I restarted the computer and everything kept installing the drivers and I had no problem.
As you might guess, the problem continued. Monday night seven had a BSOD, Tuesday I had another. I also noticed that if closed my computer's cover (not sure if that's what you call it in english), by the time I opened it again, the screen would be all black and the only thing I could do wass turn it off on the power button. I figured out there was something wrong with the drivers and decided to search for a solution on Windows 8 (at least the BSODs are more friendly. BSODs scare the hell out of me).
Yesterday I was searching for a solution on windows 8, and obviously I had BSODs on Windows 8. Other weird things happened. For example, everytime I have a BSOD here, the countdown to restart stoped at 1 second and never restarted.
The other thing was even more weird. You know that black screen that only says Windows 8 and has a few dots going around, before the "choose your system" screen? Well, the dots go around and around for ten minutes if I don't do anything. If I turn it off on the power button and immediately turn it on again, it will load normally. If I wait more than 1 minute, it will happen again, the dots will be going around to infinity. That happens everytime I turn the computer on now!(I took more than 1 minute to turn it on again, so I had to turn it on three times, which caused it to start the auto-repair. that booting problem is solved by now.)
On my search, I found on seven forums a person who had the same BSOD and it got solved when that person changed the display time, so it would take longer to turn off. I did teh same thing, hoping it would work. I left my computer on, had dinner and when I came back, BSOD!
I have no idea of what to do. It's probably the graphics driver, hope you can find out if that's the one and tell me how to fix it. Also, if you find out a way to fix Windows 8, will the same thing work for 7?
Thanks in advance. Anything else you need from me, just say a word.
