Windows 7: New Desktop built Crashing & BSOD

Hi again,

It crashed on me again today, but unfortunately it got stuck on 60% again while creating a crash dump on BSOD. I noticed an error in the Event Viewer under the "Subsys-SMSS" source and the error details were:

"The crash dump file could not be created due to a lack of free space on the destination drive. Increasing the amount of free space on the destination drive may help prevent this error."

I've got 800GBs of free space in my HDD m... anyone have any ideas on this?

Cheers,

Rue.

do you have another pc to test the parts on if not you can always run diagnostics on it

If windows can't detect that then you have to one by one sort out each peice of hardware

i also saw you are running a 550watt psu that could give you issues if the power isnt suplied enough a bsod could occur as well when running this new stuff i would recommned 600watt or higher

Mmm... nope don't have another PC to test the parts on unfortunately

Shouldn't the 550w psu be sufficient? But, anyways I just brought a new 650w shall test it tonight and hopefully it's the psu

Shall update you guys later thanks for the suggestions solar!

Hi Guys!


Sorry for the late response have been kinda busy with work and all. I would just like to come back here and say a BIG THANK YOU TO ALL!

I finally found out what the problem was and now my desktop is working as it should

Culprit: It was the RAM!!! Even though I used Memtest86+ to stress test the RAM for 10++ hours it didn't detect any faulty partitions... But, I did realize that it kept crashing when I streamed Megavideo vods. Thus, allowing me to reproduce the problem easily. So, I took out each piece of hardware and played the vods to single out the culprit. In the end, it was that one stick of faulty RAM that caused the problem for over a bit of 3 weeks.

So I returned the RAM to MSY and they tested it for a few seconds and confirmed that the RAM was faulty and gladly gave me a refund so... I upgraded my RAM to a better brand i.e. Kingston

Thanks for all the help and got to say I love the community support!

Mine is doing pretty well sorry to say >.<"

I guess there are always 1 in 100,000 pieces of hardware that are bound to have some defects. The world is not perfect, but yeah I have to agree with you on that one sometimes the quality of products are just not up to standards these days.

Hope all is good for you now
