Windows 7: bsod while computer idle

Again as I said before; they are already sending a new CPU to me at no charge. And yes since it did fail the stress tests as I got bsods within 30 seconds then yea I'm sorta inclined to believe that it very well could be CPU related. As far as the memtest goes I will certainly try once I get a flash drive which won't be til next week at which point I will run it and see what happens. As for the thermal paste I will check that when I go to put the new CPU In place.

On another note; golden; I'm sorry that I pointed you out before. I am just sorta aggravated beyond words as my system has worked fine for 2 years since I first put everything together and now this. Even for a person that's a computer nerd like myself; there are still certain things that when stuff hits the fan so to speak it hits the fan. And to add to it(and granted this has nothing to do with it but still is the same principle sorta) my downstairs tv took a dump on me and has been that way for 2 months so I've been pissed about that. Again no offense to you golden .

Well folks; it appears to be good news!; it looks as if the bsod's i got which TheDoctor thought may have indicated a failing cpu was right on the money. Got the new cpu today; installed it; put new thermal paste on; powered it back up; just ran a partial prime 95 stress test; and after 21 minutes of testing....no bsod's!. Im elated. It looks like thanks goes out to TheDoctor for helping me solve this one. And the others too. Im marking this one problem solved for now as it appears to be solved. Im still gonna let it run a thorough stress test till it ends though to make sure. At this point im almost 100% certain its wasnt the ram and it was the cpu that was bad.

Not necessarily.....it may simply have been the thermal paste that required re-application on the old CPU. This was the point I was trying to make.

Since you never tried applying new thermal paste with the older CPU, you don't actually know whether the old CPU was in fact broken.

Well I still believe it was the CPU because it was also a lot more responsive when I put the new CPU in; in terms of response speed and overall speed etc. As far as the older CPU goes golden; I just didn't want to take a chance on it. It was replaced under warranty so I didn't have to pay anything for it. I honestly don't think it was the thermal paste that helped that part. With getting the temps back under control; yes the new paste definitely helped there but as far as the CPU goes I believe it was the CPU because before it wouldn't even do stress tests.

CPU's don't work properly when the TPM is an issue. All the symptoms you described could be a result of the TPM.

Understandable; but whats done is done. And the problem/issue is now resolved. So; lets just leave it at that shall we. yes, you are probably right; the thermal paste being degraded can result in a cpu not working properly. But; I just didnt want to risk it; which is why; while i could get it replaced under warranty; I figured i would grab the chance before the warranty period ends.
