I have always built my own computers, kept them running fine, and done all the repair myself..but this one has me slumped as I have never seen this before.
I left the room...not having any computer issues, in fact I just did a clean format a few weeks back. Came back in and I had this blue screen
stop: 0x0000009c (0x0000000000000001, 0xFFFFF880009F0B30, 0x00000000BF800000, 0x0000000000000185)
I thought bummer..restarted...and it came up again. it doesn't happen in the same spot every time but I can never get in windows...sometimes the screen never shows and the system just restarts.
I tried disconnecting all my components one by one to see if any were the cause. HDD, SDD, Graphics Card, Ram (didn't have any to swap so I just interchanged my two) etc..same thing occured.
As per usual when I have issues I do a fresh delete/format/install. So I put my Windows 7 USB stick in and loaded it up...I tried to do the startup repair..but the BSOD came up during that..so I rebooted..brought it up again and deleted all my partitions and formatted my drive. Installed windows just fine...then after the first reboot when it got to setting registry settings..it came up again. I get the screen randomly at different points of trying to reinstall. I was just now running a chkdsk on my drive and it was working fine..then BSOD when I was around 30%
So now I am clueless..no idea..I assume maybe faulty PSU, Motherboard, CPU..but no idea. The hardware is only a year or so old..it doesnt run hot, I don't Overclock, it's not dusty..so I just don't know.
My specs are
Windows 7 64bit
Z68 Pro V motherboard
8 Gig Corsair Vengeance
I dont have any dumps as I cant get into windows and I have already formatted my drive.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
Sometimes, during process or rebooting or trying to reinstall windows I get a separate error
Also sometimes it just randomly reboots..and I see no error. I just spend a bit of time removing my CPU and cleaning off the old thermal paste..making sure everything is clean...put new paste on....immediately it is doing the same thing. I REALLY didn't think this was the problem as my CPU never got over 45C....but figured it was worth a try...BIOS settings are all optimized defaults..which worked fine always on this computer (though I did change some later) So the only thing I can think of is bad motherboard or faulty Power supply..POSSIBLY ram but I don't think so as I ran some tests on it...
