I just built a computer, and may have bitten off more than I can chew. I randomly get the blue screen of death (sometimes surfing the web, sometimes while using windows explorer, sometimes when doing nothing). I took the computer into microcenter for a check where they did a memory/driver test, and did not find any issues. I have attached two seperate BSOD error messages - the first is when I was trying to transfer music from an external HD, which a BSOD almost always happens while doing. The second is from a BSOD when I had just clicked on "computer" from the start menu. In addition to random BSODs, I also sometimes freeze up, and have to power off the computer manually. Again, that occurs randomly. The most similar previous post I have found so far is from this link: Granville High School | Alumni
I have run the "verifier" but do not know how to find the minidump files.
Below is my system specs:
Motherboard = Gigabyte P55-UD3R
VideoCard = ATI Radeon HD4650
Memory = 2x Corsair XMS3 DDR3 2GB (total of 4GB)
Processor = Intel i5-750 (LGA 1156)
Power = Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500W
HD = Seagate Barracuda SATA 1TB 32MB Cache 7200RPM
External HD = Seagate 300GB 3.5" push-button (that's all I know, it's from 2006).
