Windows 7: BSOD only on cold boot, 100% fine after warm reset

Problem Solved

I eventually figured out the problem!!! I had to RESEAT my processor. Been stable for a few weeks now after doing this. Thought I would pop in to share this with people.

Solved my problem too!

Hey Treviathon,

I know this is a very old thread, but I wanted to show my gratitude for this fix you provided. I have been dealing with this same exact cold boot bluescreen issue for the past 3 months, and was seriously considering buying another setup. But, after reading your suggestion, and thinking to myself "hey, I've tried everything else..." I finally got it to stop. THANK YOU!!!

I've been of the mind set that chip creep was something we were way past in this day and age, but I guess not... In any case, thank you so much for posting your fix, and I hope it continues to help others as it did me.
