I'm running on a relatively new install of Windows 7 64bit Ultimate. I recently (about 2-3 weeks ago) installed a new HD and decided to have a fresh start so everything was formatted followed by win 7 install. Everything has been running great up until mid day yesterday. Out of what seems like nowhere I experienced 6 or 7 BSOD's yesterday and from what I could tell they occurred when I tried to do any of the following: 1. Access drive D and play a video file (This is the new HD, it would instantly BSOD). 2. Access internet within 1 minute of startup.
Since yesterday I haven't had any BSOD's and have had the computer running, I haven't tried to play any videos off of HD and haven't reset my computer since (hoping that whatever it was has gone away, although I'm sure it hasn't). For the record I have accessed some music files on drive D without any issue, as well as several word and excel documents (not sure if that makes any difference?)
I have a feeling it may have something to do with my new HD that I installed, but have no idea what it could be as it was running without issue up until yesterday (for at least 2 if not 3 weeks).
My system specs are as follows:
OS: Windows 7 64bit Ultimate
Manufacturer BIOSTAR Group
Model A740G M2+
Total amount of system memory 6.00 GB RAM
System type 64-bit operating system
Number of processor cores 2
Disk partition (C) 272 GB Free (298 GB Total)
Disk partition (D) 1630 GB Free (1863 GB Total)
Display adapter type NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460
should be up to date to the best of my knowledge
- i've looked around and have seen a lot of recommendations to run memtest? I have yet to do so
I've enclosed a system health report and minidump file as outlined on forum requirements. Please let me know if there's any other information I can provide that would be of help. Thank you in advance!
