I'm running a Lenovo ThinkPad E540, which dual boots into Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04. The computer itself is maybe 2.5 years old, and I'm having some problems with the Windows installation. When I boot into Windows, the computer bluescreens after I sign in.

I've been having problems with Windows for a while already. Maybe about a year back, I had to reinstall my Windows, because it did the same thing. The clean install fixed things for a while, but not long after, I began getting intermittent bluescreens at login and waking up from suspension. The reason of the bluescreens changes pretty much every time.

The curious thing is that I have zero problems when I'm running Ubuntu. That makes me believe that if it is a hardware problem, it has to do with the Windows partition of the HD. I've ran the Disk utility that comes with Ubuntu, but it found no problems with the HD.

I'm guessing that reinstalling Windows might help with the problem, but due to my previous experience of this not actually fixing the problem, I'm not sure I want to go through that hassle again. Any ideas what the problem could be about? I'm pretty sure I can find the Windows bluescreen system dumps, if that would be of any help.

EDIT: Below is the dump from BlueScreenView. I took it by running BlueScreenView on Ubuntu via Wine. I included all 2017 dumps, there are many different error messages in there.

  • What are the full BSOD error messages? BlueScreenView should provide this information. Please edit your question to include this. – DavidPostill Mar 15 '17 at 13:53
  • I added the dump from BlueScreenView @DavidPostill – Joel Lehikoinen Mar 17 '17 at 10:06
