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