Hi, I built a PC just over a month ago and last week I had a BSOD but thought nothing of it. Just restarted and everything was fine. But since last night they keep happening. I've been able to boot up fine after but it 'blue screened' shortly after booting up a few times.
Apologies if this isn't entirely correct. Tried to do this right
Windows 7 Home 64bit
Processor: Intel i3 2120
Processor Speed: 3292 MHz
Memory: 8175 MB
Platform: 64 Bit
Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 550 Ti
Motherboard: Asrock H61M/U3S3
Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? - 64
- the original installed OS on the system? - Installed after building it
- an OEM or full retail version? - full retail
- OEM = came pre-installed on system
- Full Retail = you purchased it from retailer
- What is the age of system (hardware)? Just over a month...
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) same as above, haven't tried reinstalling OS to fix BSOD
Last BSOD was about 20 mins ago, crashed right after I finished a match of league of legends. Other times I was just using google chrome on youtube and reddit. For some further info, a few weeks ago I got 2 random screen fracturing which quickly returned to normal. When they happened asus smart doctor popped up saying that the card wasn't working properly. I've rolled back the drivers
for my graphics card and also performed disc check and a memory test (with programmes available on windows) and no problems.
Appreciate any help you guys can give
EDIT: Forgot to mention, I preformed a system health check and everything it seemed to check out (aside from 1 problem I'm aware of)
EDIT 2: 24/04 22:50
I removed one of my ram modules just to test to see if it had any effect. My PC was on for 2 hours and I was doing similar things when it BSOD before and it's been running well. No problems. I rebooted afterwards and tried to recreate what I was doing the last time it BSOD and still nothing (yet anyway). Could the ram be faulty or is it the slot that is ?
I did had a few more BSOD before removing 1 ram stick (one blue screen when I tried to start in safe mode with networking :s It blue screened after loading drivers/etc.) Also perhaps worth mentioning is my PC was quite sluggish after the second BSOD I had (last night) but has returned close to its previous speed since removing one of the two ram modules.
