Windows 7: Every Other Day Startup Issues Win 7 Pro x64

Every Other Day Startup Issues Win 7 Pro x64

I have a brand new rig that I just built consisting of the following specs:
CPU: Intel Core i7-920 2.66 Quad Core
Mobo: MSI x58 Pro E LGA 1366 Intel X58
RAM: 4gb of Patriot 2GB 240 Pin DDR3 SDRAM 1333
HD: 500 Gigabyte Seagate (second drive used, see below)
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64

My current problem is it seems every other day when I start my computer up in the morning, there is some issue of one sort or another on the computer. Last week it was a corrupt file in the windows directory (an ntsomething.dll, don't recall the full name). This morning it was a corrupt system volume.

I did have a number of corrupt system volume issues when I first put the computer together, but I diagnosed that as a bad hard drive (SeaTools tests detected that pretty quick). After having run Seatools on the brand new hard drive (it came up clean), I reinstalled Windows 7 from a system image. Bad idea, as apparently it copied over the corrupt system volume. I reformatted the hard drive, started from scratch, and got myself back up and running.

This morning I had another corrupt system volume. On bootup, I discovered that it was reading only 2 gb of ram, so I reseated the RAM and ran a Memtest on it. It came out fine with no errors.

I out the SATA cable for the hard drive, and moved it to another connection, just in case I had a bad cable/connection.

Restarted my computer, windows decided to run a system repair (corrupt system volume again), rebooted, and it started up just fine (once it comes up, btw, it works just fine. No problems at all).

I ran sfc /scannow in the past and had no problems, but when I ran it just a few minutes ago it stated "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and succesfully repaired them. I do have a log file for it, but it's 5MB in size (I can upload a copy of the entries from just today if that would assist anyone).

The only dump file that I have is from 2 days ago (it didn't create one this morning, I'm unsure of why), but I've included that n case there might be something useful.

Any suggestions as to why I'm constantly getting this problem would be much appreciated. If you need more information, please let me know. I hope I got everything people would need, but there's so much, it's easy to overlook something

Thank you.

Jon

PS I'm running burn in tests as we speak, just to verify on more time.

Hi and welcome. there are several different things that can couse this type of crash. they are Device driver, System DLL corruption, Faulty hardware in I/O path (a disk error, faulty RAM, or a corrupted page file), BIOS

I would update the BIOS,
re-run the sfc /scannow
Run Hd drive diagnostics from here HD Diagnostic

If you are overclocking stop
If you have a raid update its driver

Ken,

Thanks for the quick response.

I've gone in and updated the BIOS (I was on 8.6, the latest was 8.7).
Ran sfc /scannow and it did not find any problems right now.
I've run the hardware diagnostics, no problems reported.

Not overclocking.
No Raid to worry about.

I've rebooted several times today and there doesn't seem to be a problem yet, but it does seem to be an every other day type thing, so I'll keep an eye on it.

Thanks for the suggestions
Jon
