Hey, thanks for reading, it's good there's actually somewhere to go with these kinda errors seeing as M$ don't really care too much (Error reporting lol.) and as I built this machine myself I don't have any kinda OEM support.
I suppose the best place to start is explaining where I am with this, basically this is my first big build, I've injected a lot of cash into this as a christmas/birthday (20 in 6 days
) present to myself, so it's a lot of excitement for me as a PC enthusiast which makes it even worse that the bloody thing keeps BSOD'ing on me. At first I thought it was just when it was doing something involving my webcam (Logitech's drivers
have never been all that awesome if you ask me) so I unplugged it, uninstalled drivers etc to see if it'd give me stability... It didn't.
Now I've had this machine for about 40 hours now and so far I've had numerous BSOD's during web browsing, fullscreen youtube videos, gaming (RUINED my Skyrim experience, didn't quicksave -.-) and generally anytime I actually want to do anything on the machine. After the webcam drivers made no difference, I thought video drivers, as I had the nVidia beta drivers installed... Got rid of them, put the stable official release on (Clean install) and thought that'd help. Once again... It didn't.
Lastly I thought 'It must be the RAM, 16GiB is a lot and there's a lot of margin for error there' so I performed windows' own Memtest and... All apparently fine. I reseated the RAM hoping maybe a flake of skin or a hair was somehow making it unstable, but no. Nothing has helped. It loves to BSOD.
So I hopped onto the Google Train and found my way here, and I'm feeling pretty hopeful from reading other threads that there's a genuine community here able to help, so in advance;
Thank you for saving Christmas.
... and birthday
