BSOD Crashes after power outage

About a month ago, the power went out in the neighborhood. When the power came back on, my computer was really messed up; freezes, blue screens, etc. After an hour or two, I found that one of my memory sticks was damaged. I was finally able to boot into windows and work for a little while. Problem is I still get the blue screens randomly and much too frequently (essentially each session I use the computer, I get at least 1 BSOD). I had windows 7 installed for a full year with virtually no problems on this system.

I have done a clean reinstall of the full retail version of windows 7 x64 professional.
Abit kn9s motherboard
Athlon 64 x2 4200

Thank you in advance for all your help!

Your causes are all over the map so like you I suspect hardware. I do notice that many of them refer to video driver/card/power.

I would run memtest, sfc /scannow, and replace your video driver as described below

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.


Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Let us know if you need help

Thanks for the quick response, Ken. SFC and Memtest came out clean. Replaced the video driver and have been up and running for over a day with no problems. Hopefully that was the trick and I won't have to bother you (or anybody else) again.

Thanks again!
