    Can corrupt system files cause BSODs?


    In my laptop, SFC or DISM cannot fix corrupt files so I have to manually replace them but can these corrupt system files cause BSODs? Im asking because I am having BSODs (already posted on BSOD subforums).

    You need to check for virus and also run chkdsk /f from elevated command prompt. Will take 1+ hour for large drive.
