My name is Chelsy. Thank you for reading and possibly helping!
We have been having a problem for months and it is on my roommates computer, but since I am really good at finding answers I am the one searching and posting.
He replaced his HDD recently to a Western Digital 1TB Caviar Black. Unbeknownst to us at the time this HDD has some issues of being DOA or having bad sectors. We sent back the HDD to be replaced and he used my old one which was only 200GB and couldn't install even half of his games.
On Friday the HDD arrived and he proceeded to re-install Windows and all his games and programs. He is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit - Full Retail, Obviously its the only thing that has ever been installed on the HDD. Since installing and even as I'm typing he is receiving BSOD after BSOD. They seem to be different each time, which makes no sense at all. The first thing I did was write down the different ones and search the forums for fixes of any kind. We ran Memtest and found out that he might have a bad RAM port so he stopped using that one. We ran every virus scan and malware scan that we could think of. We downloaded and ran your BSOD program, as well as the System Health Program. And they are zipped up. The computer seems to be finding any reason at all to shut down.
Computer Hardware specs:
MSI 790fx gd70 -Motherboard
EVGA GTX 570 - Video Card
2x2GB RAM - Corsair XMS3
WD 1TB - Caviar Black - HDD
Truepower Quatro 850W Powersource
The oldest piece is the powersource at 2 years old and everything else was purchased within the last 6 months - year and a half.
The computer is currently off and not even starting up anymore. I don't know what to do except (MAYBE) reformat, AGAIN but he really would rather not do that.
The reason we had to send back the HDD in the first place was because of having to continuously Reformat. Everytime we install the programs and start using the computer it would stop functioning in some way. I even spent a total of 8 hours over a 3 day period on the phone with Microsoft trying to fix the problem the first time. I hope that this report will give us some clue as to what to do. But now the problem is out there and hopefully someone, who has more knowledge than me, can figure it out so we can fix it once and for all. I really appreciate all the help. I hope that someone can figure this out! Thank you so very much for having these forums for such a situation!
