Windows 7: PC randomly crashes when gaming?

08 Nov 2012   #91

This is what you did earlier, correct?

When you install on the other HD, make sure to run Diskpart Clean (not Clean All) command, install only the network driver if it is missing after install so you can get online to do all IMportant and Optional Updates after enabling Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware.

Only after all Updates are done should you import any missing drivers, or the latest display driver if you are only given Standard VGA display driver.

If you have any questions please ask back.

Reviewing: The BSOD pointed to the HD, but Seatools passes it and SMART shows it is good. A Clean Reinstall doesn't solve the problem, so we're trying another HD next.

It does sound like Hardware issues, could be something on the main board, GPU, or HDD. I know if you have an explansion modem (PCI Modem (Dial-Up)), they are sometimes known to cause this issue. Try running with only minimal components in the computer if you have a modem or extra USB adapters on a PCI card.

I remember those days, full time college, full time work, and then trying to have a personal life, I miss those days, but sadly they are way behind me now.

OK my post corrected.

You've done a lot of good hard work in this thread, hopefully learned a lot.

Now rest and study up, take the time to get a perfect reinstall this time so we'll know for sure if it's the HDD. If not we need to look elsewhere.

[IMG]http://s15.**************/myyqglpmz/2012_11_08_278.jpg[/IMG]

It passed

This was tested using ESTools v3.01v

Main menu: [IMG]http://s11.**************/ux4gcs8r7/2012_11_08_272.jpg[/IMG]

And yes I did click it: [IMG]http://s7.**************/8xqlshwqj/2012_11_08_273.jpg[/IMG] *Before the scan*

@tlarseth,
I don't use no explansion modem I use the one which is built into my bored Ethernet cable.

Good times! But who says it needs to end?

@gregrocker,
Thank you <3

And yes I have, Back in the day I would just just any HD diagnostic tools eg tune up, I never thought every HD had its own oO
And yes today is the day I will swap HD's! When I get home..

Here is what am going to do (I best post them so you can check them)

1, Swap HDs
2, Boot into the new HD and go to Windows 7 instiller (Using the disk from Dell) open a CMD and do a "clean"
3, Click on install now
4, let it do its thing...
5, Get onto the desktop install network drivers?
6, restart
7, install windows 7 updates and wait
8, Post back here when all updates are done.

Some questions
1, Normally I use 64 bit dose that matter? This time should I use 32 bit?
2, Network drivers should I use my disk or download the ones from the site?

note: your images in post 95 aren't where the link points.

As long as you follow the Clean Install - Factory OEM Windows 7 tutorial you'll be fine.

The Clean Install Windows 7 tutorial is referenced by Greg's tut, pay attention to both. there's one thing I noticed that you didn't reference in your list of to-do. After you clean your drive - it is unallocated space, Click install now, and here's what I didn't see in your list
Click on custom install
select the drive
..... from the Clean Install tut
I'm not sure if Windows would just pick a drive for you.

And you have your network drivers already downloaded (also in the tut) - correct?

Run Windows update from Control Panel until there are no more updates offered.

If you previously used x64 - I'd use that again in this exercise.

As Greg mentioned - stuff on your disc is old when they ship it. If someone gave you the place to download the updated drivers, get those.

Take your time, make sure you read everything, don't assume anything. The tuts are basically step-by-step.

@Slartybart,
Do you mean the images are not showing? They are showing for me :3

Yes this time I will follow the tut word to word.. But I posted my steps just so gregrocker can get a feel of what am doing.. As do he can see thought my eyes

Of course that is how I normally do it via the custom menu (I thought that was the only way of doing it?) I have not tired the other option...

I only have them on my disk, But I will go to there site and download the newest ones I can find and put them on my usb to install them

It's only post# 95

Top image link: http://s14.**************/obkkcx0o0/2012_11_08_279.jpg
propeties say: not available

custom menu? Control Panel? Some people let automatic updates do the work, and sometimes updates don't get installed due to the way people have it configured. So I emphasized using Windows update in the Control panel.

Some Answers
1. Use 64 bit
2. I would recommend using the ones that were on the drive to keep this as a controlled test environment.

What you are trying to do is set this drive up as close to the one you had in the computer earlier, this way we are only testing the physical drive and not the software.
