Windows 7: Reoccuring BSOD after performing clean reinstall factory OEM Windows 7

Reoccuring BSOD after performing clean reinstall factory OEM Windows 7

Hi all,

I have been having issues with my pc for about a month now. It has been tough diagnosing what is causing my pc to crash/ prompt BSOD's. I was away for a year and left my pc unplugged and out of use. When I came home, I tried booting it and ran into problems. Cleaned fans/ heat sinks and reapplied new thermal paste (Arctic Silver 5) to the processor and the graphics card.

I performed a clean reinstall of factory OEM Windows 7 by following gregrocker's tutorial.
I am unsure at this point what my random crashes are due to. My thoughts point toward hardware failure.... any input and help would be greatly appreciated.

Minidump file is attached for reference. Thanks!

I think he solved it Yussi. This is from his other thread.

I was getting a lot of BSOD's, and in Event Viewer I was noticing that a lot of my crashes were due to "Kernel Power Failure" or other Kernel things.

Since the PSU is the power source, and it is also cheaper and easier to install/ take out than the mother board, I figured I'd just swap it out and try.

It worked
