Hello and well met.
Prefacing this by saying that I am not terribly tech savvy software either software or hardware, though I have been getting by on my own since Windows 95.
Yesterday I encountered a BSOD while playing music on youtube in Chrome browser on my stationary PC - Windows 7 64 - 4core intel 920 from 2010.
It was a hardware error BSOD of this type: https://www.google.com/imgres?imgur...hUKEwilyJaQjIn3AhVZg_0HHW50C1wQMygTegUIARDiAQ
Automatic Windows repair on boot did not change anything. Every time I tried logging into my account, I would get the same BSOD.
Afterwards it was difficult to enter safe mode, as the pc kept force-restarting during boot, often with intervals of 0,5-3 seconds many times in a row, and often ending up with the same BSOD, but I managed it twice and in the control center there were no red flags, though in safe mode there is no status for graphics card or processor.
I ran a disk cleanup, but could not run defragmentation - not sure that would help in any case. Did not have access to the Internet in safe mode.
After that I tried removing all my 4 ram blocks 1 after another, though that changed nothing.
After that I tried to replace my old GTX 275 with my old HDMI monitor that I kept. Though I got no visuals, it force-restarted a couple of times again after each other - so I don´t think it is a faulty graphics card either - there were also no graphical bugs prior to the initial BSOD. I changed to my current GTX 1060 6 GB about 1,5 years ago (I was unhappy to learn that it had a slight constant highly pitched noise, but it seems there were no performance issues) and changed to a 4k monitor in December 2021.
I backed up all my files the last time about 2-3 months ago and have no restore points to try reloading and no windows CD/boot flash drive/CD and it seems no way to get Internet access on my pc.
I have been having trouble with the stereo speakers losing sound in one speaker and once or twice "blurring" the sound resently - I pinned it on a faulty cable that is built into the speakers.
After some research some people mentioned setup files, drivers and motherboard, but I am completely stumped, thus this post.
I attached 6 pictures showing an error message/temp WER file that Windows managed to generated based on one of the crashes/BSOD´s - not the initial one, but they seem similar.
I am in desperate straights here, please help.
