Hello, recently i've been having some really weird freezes, sometimes its just the windows but multimedia keyboard keys / mouse still work, other times it completely freezes (cant even move the mouse.).
Usually if i wait a little bit the computer goes back to normal by itself, other times i get BSOD.
Im pretty sure its hardware related because i've tried formatting and got a bsod right after installing windows, i suspect the hard drive because when the computer freezes all HDD activity stops, when the computer manages to recover the hard drive activity comes back exactly at the same time the system unfreezes, sometimes if i run chkdsk there are lots and lots of errors, windows fixes them but they come back sooner or later, also, sometimes the computer doesnt detect the hard drive after a BSOD, turning the computer off and then on always "fixes" that tho.
The only reason im not 100% sure its the HDD its because all HDD utilities i've tried (incluiding western digital diagnostics software) say the disk is fine, can SMART be wrong ?!
I've also ran memtest and no errors (just one pass tho)
Things seem to have gotten worse when i changed the graphic card, however i remember getting these freezes with the old one, just not as serious, prolly just a coincidence.
I remember getting 3 kinds of BSOD errors: driver_power_state_failure, pagefault_in_nonpaged_area and kernel_data_inpage_error
A week ago i turned my pc on and windows was broken, startup repair thing would show up and try to repair but failed no matter how many times i tried, this never happened to me before so it must be related
specs: E8400 3.0ghz (stock)
asus P5k-E wifi
LC power hyperion 750w
2x2gb team elite ddr2
western digital green caviar 500 gb
asus 6870 directCU
asus xonar DX
windows 7 ultimate 64bit
Everything except the graphic card is 4 years old
dump and perfmon attached, if anyone could figure out whats the issue or confirm my suspicions i'd be very thankful
Sorry about the wall of text, just trying to explain how the computer behaves the best i can
PS: im not sure if this last crash created a dump, i did follow the posting instructions tho, the system NEVER bsod while its working fine, its always when it freezes, either it comes back normally or it bsod
