Windows 7: BSOD, multiple errors, possibly failing hardware

BSOD, multiple errors, possibly failing hardware

Hello.
Recently I've been having quite a few BSOD aswell as a number of freezes. The BSOD's happen seemingly random and I think they've been primarily 'd1' and 'a' errors. I'm hoping there'll be a log of past BSOD's in the diagnostics tool file. The freezes only ever happen when I'm using a web browser and started occuring about a week ago. Most of the time the computer stutters one or two times and then freezes up followed by a restart 10-20 seconds later. The few times it has managed to recover the resource monitor shows that something called 'system interrupts' have had a sizeable cpu spike.

I've also noticed that my network connection tends to just die a few hours after I start the computer.

As I've gotten BSOD's I've been updating or rolling back drivers that were implied but at this point I'm more suspecting a hardware problem than software. I should note that leaving prime 95 on over the night didn't spit out any errors.

Any help pinpointing the problem(s) would be very appreciated.

Edit: I just used a program called bluescreenview and it appears atleast 5 or so reports were missing. 2 days ago (or so) there were a bluescreen and the computer failed to start and startup repair decided to do a rollback.

Hello and welcome Alan mate just how old is this machine as I notice the CPU is an Intel Q 9300 quad cored one? (My tester has the Q9550 and I know it is four years old)

I would like to see some more system specs too mate and if this is an older machine try this fopr starters.

PSU - Jump Start

for a ref on the volts etc

Here's my system specs: (I think)

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L

Graphics card: gtx 560 (ASUS)

Harddrive: Seagate baracuda 3gb

RAM (x2): 4GB 800MHz DDR2 Non-ECC CL6 DIMM (Kit of 2)
Standard 256M X 64 Non-ECC 800MHz 240-pin Unbuffered DIMM

PSU: corsair VX 550W

Harddrive failed and got replaced 9(ish) months ago. Ram died and got replaced about 18 months ago and graphics card sometime before that I think. Cpu and motherboard should be about 5 years of age but I may have replaced the PSU at some point aswell. :P

I'll take a look at that tutorial a bit later today, ty.

Ok Ty yes mate it's a known fact (according to Scott Mueller) that PSU's account for the majority of computer failures so let us know how it goes.

Hello again and sorry it took so long time to get back. A couple of hours ago I replaced my PSU with a new one and it turns out my PSU was innocent.
