BSOD's suddenly occurring very frequently, errors 0x00000024, 4a, 1b

Hello,

I am new to these forums and was hoping for some help regarding my rather extreme BSOD situation.

I've had this PC from Chillblast for over 2 years now, and other than the occasional BSOD (think I've had 3/4 in those 2 years), which was usually rectified with a nVidia driver update, it has been fine. Yesterday it BSOD while I was doing exactly the same things as usual. I had Firefox open with 5/6 tabs, one with fullscreen flash video, Steam was running but I had just closed down the Path of Exile game, and maybe Winamp was open but idle.

Since it started at about 9pm yesterday I can't get the computer to stay up other than idling for very long, hence why I'm adding all this info before trying to go through the seven forums diagnostics tools, as it might not stay up for long enough to run them.

What should I do next? I'm guessing I should try to install the SF diagnostic tool, if the computer will survive long enough to allow it.

Cheers,
Ben

Please post the SF diagnostic tool files in your next post while a BSOD professional catches up.

I will try to first download it and then run it, but as I said this does require my system to stay up long enough for me to do either of those things.

Assuming it would survive longer in safe mode, is it worth running the tool in safe mode?

This is my issue, I've not known any pc to go from fully working to such frequent BSOD's in such a short space of time.

Try it in safe mode. Do you have another computer to download the SF diagnostic tool? If yes, download it on that computer and transfer it to the problem computer with a USB drive. This will give you a bit more time to use that tool before the next bsod occurs.

Yes I have my macbook so I can download and transfer things if needed. I will try and run it when I get back from work.

What I would most like to know is if this is a hardware or software issue. If it's software then I might just bite the bullet and reinstall windows, which might require me to buy another copy as I don't know if it shipped with a disk.

I should probably mention I have done a ChkDsk on the only HDD, and other than seeming to say it moved a file, then moved it back again, it didn't appear to do anything nor find any issues. For the next bootup I have it scheduled to go through with both ChkDsk options enabled.

Here's an update:

I did a full ChkDsk with both options ticked, it found nothing wrong this time, not even the previously misplaced file.

I remember previous BSOD's were seemingly caused by Windows media player, hence why I switched to Winamp and never returned. Although I can play DVD's in WMP fine, it seemed to not like playing music, but this only accounted for 2/3 BSOD's many many months ago, but it was possibly video drivers.

The fan on my GPU always starts on full, and is very loud. It sounds like the bearings are misaligned or worn. This full fan behaviour started many months ago, which I think was from an nVidia patch. But after a few minutes the fan goes to idle speed and even during intense gaming does not create any unusual noises, but obviously you can hear it spin faster.

After the full ChkDsk I let it idle on the desktop with nothing running, other than the Steam splash screen in its pre-login state. I came back to the computer some 20 mins later to find it at the password screen, so it had clearly BSOD even while idling on the desktop. This suggests to me a hardware fault, but I don't want to jump to conclusions. I am going to try the same desktop idling in safe mode, to see if its a sound/video driver.

I will try tonight to firstly select minidumps, and secondly run the tool. Bear in mind I have maybe 5 minutes uptime max for some boots, so some more time-consuming suggestions are very hard to perform.

How many BSOD's is sensible before I should just start removing pieces of hardware? I don't want to unnecessarily corrupt a working HDD if that component is fine.

P.S. I found my OEM Win7 disk, so a reinstall would be easy, but I'm guessing not necessary if it's a hardware fault.
