BSOD on a desktop after being gone for a year

Hi all,

I have lately been conversing with gregrocker (who, seriously, is possibly the most helpful person on Earth) about troubleshooting my pc which has been having boot trouble ever since I returned home from a year long journey. Specs on this are located in this thread: Spent a year travelling while my desktop at home, crashes upon booting

He suggested I post my BSOD output here.

Thanks!

Well; from what i could research via google on this issue; it looks like you could; and i mean could have a issue with one or more possible sticks of ram being bad. But in order to find out for sure; you should run memtest86+ from the following link. It is a program that you will need to burn to a disc or to a flash drive or the like to be able to run it as it cant be directly run from a system. Here is the link to memtest86+: post back if no issues and we can go from there and i will try and research it some more to try and determine where to go next.

Thanks for the reply!

I tried running Memtest86+ earlier today but my pc crashed and shut down on pass #3. I can always try again though

I would give it another shot to see if you can get it to go past number 3. If you cant; there is a possibility that you may have a few bad ram slots and or even a bad system board.

I tried running it a few more times, each time it would crash just after or before the third pass. Is there another way for me to test my motherboard/ RAM?

Also I have unplugged and reattached all cables and cleaned my RAM sticks with compressed air before re-seating them.

I solved the issue by following a suggestion in my other thread in general discussion about cleaning out the cpu heat sink/ fan and also reapplying thermal paste. I did this and voila, my pc was working again.

Thank you for your help, I honestly greatly appreciate what everyone here does. Great community with great people.

Would a 1 year warranty be sufficient for desktop ?
I just need opinions, If I was going to buy a desktop computer, should I spend more money and get the extended 2,3 or 4 year warranty ? Or should I just stick with the standard 1 year. Compared to a notebook, a desktop is obviously less prone to damages, obviously due to not transporting it...
