Yes, Sorry, I use it to transfer files between systems. Sometimes It's plugged in, sometimes not. I accidently had it plugged in when the program was run to collect info.

That's not a problem, it just looks like it was causing issues. Do you know if it's been plugged in when your system has shut down before?

Seeing as all of the hardware has been tested and we're exhausting all possibilities here I'm wondering how adverse you'd be to performing a clean install of Windows? This may sound drastic, but I'd show you how to run a Macrium image of your C: drive first so you could restore your PC to it's current state in around thirty minutes or so.

I'm proposing this to rule out any software or driver problems as nothing on that front is obviously apparent, so running a clean install of Windows for a couple of days is the only way I can think now to prove that it's definitely software related. It's not a hard process, and with Macrium you know you can be back to exactly where you are at the moment in a short time with no hassle.

Let me know how you feel about this. It's not as extreme as it sounds.

I've never used Macrium but I'm very familiar with Clonezilla, how are the two compared?

I've never used Clonezilla or heard from anyone who has to be honest, but I presume it would do what Macrium does. I'm advising Macrium here though as I can guarantee the results, with Clonezilla I can't so don't want to be responsible for something going awry. Have a read up on Macrium, it's simple to use and quick to pick up. Plus it's free. Imaging with free Macrium

Yeah, sorry. I've been really busy lately and haven't had time to work on the rig. Eventually, i will get to the point where I can reinstall windows.

One thing to note though, my computer restarted while I was playing a game through Steam and when it booted up, it went into chkdsk and only found file system errors for my D:\Steam folders. Nothing was wrong with my C: drive. So I'm wondering if maybe Steam could be the issue? I doubt it, but if so, reinstalling Windows wouldn't help since Steam is on a different drive. Also, the way I installed Steam was to run the installer to create the program files, and then I copied my whole Steam folder from another computer to the path it created on my gaming rig. Maybe it could have a software error because it was originally installed on different hardware? Do you think that that might be the problem?

It's possible, I wouldn't rule anything out at the moment. If that's the case I'd recommend making an image of your D: drive with Macrium then formatting it. Run the HDD checks on the D: drive to see if anything shows up or gets fixed, reinstall Steam then install a game or two and test.

Hey, I was going to tackle reinstalling Windows today. So I'll get back to you when I'm done.

Did your friend ever look at those voltages though? (This is the same image from an earlier post)

The voltages look OK. The 12V is a little low but allowable. If you need any guidance reinstalling Windows have a look here Clean Install Windows 7
