Windows 7: Cold Boot BSOD....I believe...

Cold Boot BSOD....I believe...

I've been getting a weird BSOD everytime I cold boot in the morning. However, unlike the other cold boot BSOD's I've read about on the site, my comp doesn't blue screen until after i've passed the loading screen, and I log into my desktop.

It's really weird, but I always have enough time to log in, load msn and do stuff. Then, while i'm in the middle of surfing the net (basically, not very high demanding stuff), the computer would BSOD, and restart. Then there would be absolutely no problems until the next time i turn off my computer and turn it on the next morning.

I've already run memtest (I previously had BSOD problems, fixed with a clean reformat and reinstallation of windows 7) and there are no problems with my ram.

Yesterday, I tried to hibernate and see if there would be a change. There was not. I attached the minidump for this bluescreen. Let me know if I need to provide additional details. Thanks for your help!

Don't happen to have G.Skill ram do you? Im having the exact same problem, and hear that it could either be a power supply problem, or particularly G.Skill ram problem. The next time you go to switch your PC on, instead of booting into windows, run a memtest.

Good Luck

Hi did you get any resolution to this issue, I am having similar issues with 0x000000f4 BSOD. I note there are a few users who are reporting simialr behaviour.

I am hoping maybe we can all disect our systems to see if there is a common component or maybe someonw has a solution that isn't posted.

My issue here :
