Windows 7: Different BSOD while doing various things.

Different BSOD while doing various things.

My computer usually either gets a BSOD, crash, or just restart itself, randomly. Sometimes it will be while I am playing a game, sometimes when I am on the internet, and sometimes just when I start it up. It will even crash when starting up, after a restart. It'll freeze in the BIOS menu, and sometimes it won't start up at all, and just make a loud beeping noise.

ANY information will be helpful, at this point. I have tried using windows System Restore, to no avail, and tried searching up the BSOD error codes on the internet. Nothing seems to be solving them. I don't know whether it is a hardware error, or a software error.

It's hardware.

Freezing in the BIOS is a sign of hardware failure.

The beeps you hear should be in a discernible rhythm. Those beeps are BIOS error codes.


The first place to start would be memory.

Download Memtest and burn to a bootable disc or flash drive.

The app runs straight away. 6-8 passes is optimal. (aside from the first test, each pass takes a rough hour to run. So it's uasually best to leave run overnight)

However you can stop the test the moment you see an error.

There are generally 3 possible outcomes from a memtest error.

Incorrect BIOS settings (timings/voltages)
Faulty RAM module
Bad Dimm slot/mother board.

Send me a VM when have you run memtest and we can take it from there.
