Windows 7: from out of nowhere, bsods!

from out of nowhere, bsods!

hi all

just started getting bsod's last night from out of, well, the blue! no changes were made on my system that i am aware of, just same old same old. leaves me to suspect a hardware failure? run dual sticks of ram, so did the ole one at a time and crashed with either installed. chkdsk came back ok. system verify came back ok.

have been building comps for a long long time, have had all the usual hardware failures. i have to say, this is the worst prob i have had, my comp is just not happy at all atm. bsod every hour doing just webby research, comp will hang and hang and hang and then screen. at first, i was getting the normal instscreen, now they are seeming to hang, the comp becomes unresponsive, cant open task manager, etc.

any advice would be greatly appreciated! let me know if i need to provide any other info. i also noticed i seemed to be having some PNRPsvc related errors around the earlier crashes, so i did the delete file trick for that to reset and it seems like that error is no longer occuring, but the crashes are.

A failing SSD controller will do those very things...You did not list your drive type?

Get your valuables off of that drive just in case.....M4's are supposed to be good though. It was those early Sandforce contollers that could bite.....

have not checked on a firmware update for the ssd. would something with the firmware just manifest itself all of a sudden like it has? i take it my bug reports are not pointing to anything specific? thanks guys.

Reports come with BCC F4, often related to storage.

Update the firmware of the SSD and report us if there are any improvements.

will do , thank you for your response kool, much appreciated.

have other spare drives, was thinking of just throwing another install onto one and see if my prob is fixed, most likely my solution if the ssd is going bad anyway, lol. will try the firmware update first.

Yes you can do that if it still crashes after firmware update.

BTW: Upload a screenshot of your hard disk using CrystalDiskInfo:
