I'm starting a new thread here, don't want to spam others.
Everyday when I turn my computer on, I get a series of BSOD's which causes my system to become unbootable and/or corrupting my raid disk array with data.
After an hour spent repairing the array, repairing the boot disk etc. the system becomes completely stabile. I mean rock stabile, I can throw anything at it and not being able to cause a crash.
This behaviour seems odd to me and analyzing the crashdumps points in all directions leading me to some kind of hardware issue. I know my PSU is somewhat too small and probably doesn't even deliver 500 watts anymore but I just want to be certain. I know the boot sequence draws a lot of power...
Has anyone else experienced this cold boot issue and solved it with a larger PSU?
I'm REALLY getting tired of starting my day with fixing the pc and at some point I guess I can't fix it easily anymore. Data is of course backed up but anyway...
I was thinking about reducing the boot sequence to only using 1 CPU but what are the chances this will do the trick?
For the record, I tried many things. At first I updated all my drivers
etc. and tried a verifier.exe cycle which only sent me into an endless loop of BSOD's I couldn't get out of (no F8/safe mode). Then I thought it might be because of my pagefile being on the raid array. Then I removed the "lock files in memory" option of the gpedit. I have run numerous memory tests without errors and prime95 on the CPU. Videocard also checks out...
All these things have helped but I can't get rid of the cold boot BSOD's and hope someone has tried something similar and can throw in some advice.
