hi again; i ran the memory testing overnight but it didn't finish 8 passes so i left it going and went to school. when i came back, it had only just finished 8 passes. no errors tho... although when i came back my room smelt a bit like smoke. i checked the mboard and what i could see in the psu but it still looks like no capacitors have burst or anything. i have had a few bluescreens since i last posted and the details are in the file.

Hmm guess something is getting very hot and apart from a visual inspection of the PSU, GPU and the board in general I could not suggest what is overheating.
Now if it is a cap that is the cause of that the smell will be quite different from the board getting scorched - just another thing to look the two smells being different in that cap will stick something rotten and the board a little more tolerable though still unpleasant. The reason being the electrolyte in the cap is a lot different form the resin composite that the board is made from.

The last BSOD's are they the last ones posted ot have you forgot to attach them to this post??

the smell has almost gone now; at least i cant smell it. it was definitely not a rotting smell, it was more similar to burning wood or something similar. might not have even been from the pc.

Well I don't think it is just down to MP souly it may just be a system setting for it. I know we have down a chkdsk and sfc before but might be worth giving them a go gain and perhaps a look at ehe event viewer.

If you look through it heat it will have the BSOD's "events" listed and it would be interesting to see what they are listed as.

i'm looking at the event viewer right now and all of the errors, warnings and criticals over the last few days are to do with either 'peer name resolution protocol' or 'peer networking grouping service'. is this normal or is this a problem?

yes i do like to 'P2P' a movie (i don't like the word torrent) every now and then. but i am constantly scanning my downloads with antivirus.
- if i have downloaded a malicious file; why hasn't it completely taken over my pc?

note - i don't 'steal' anything i can't legally pay for anyway (don't have a credit card)
