Windows 7: Windows crashes on startup only when powering on system

Another successful boot-up with no crashing, hanging, or freezing. I'm going to try a few more times. If I never see a hang or crash, I'll mark it solved.

That's fantastic news. Congratulations. You've at least made progress if not something better.

Try that, then go play a few games and push it a little. See how it performs. What does CPUz say?

CPUZ seems to have all the right voltages and timings on it. When he plays games later, I'll see how it performs, but I'm sure it'll be fine, games always ran top notch. If not, I'll mention it, but otherwise I think it's solved.

If the games run fine I'll let you know that too.

Thank you so much for all you've done for me, and all the time you provided.

It was agroup effort. It took a lot of people contributing. I hope it's solved for you. I think we've all learned a lot from this thread. What about your raid? You were going to reinstall if the ram checked out.

The RAID seems like it's functioning normally. Also, he's playing a game right now and it seems to be running fine.

Well, that's very good. I hope it stays working well for you. Seems that some builds go real easy, and some you have to pull your hair out a little to get them right. But, the end result is what counts. If you have a setting in bios to save these settings I think I would. If it gets messed up again you can always go back to here. If you have problems, we'll be right here. Pooch and Dave76 were the real helpers here, it wouldn't be running like it is without them. Good luck.

Glad to hear it's running more stable than before.

There is usually more tweaking to get stability, don't be surprised if the issues rear their ugly head again.

Although memtest86+ is the best RAM testing app, RAM can be very difficult to setup for stability, I have seen several error free passes of memtest86+ and then one will give errors.
This is just the way electronics are, I recommend some more testing, yes I know running memtest86+ is a long process and not the most fun you can have with your computer.

The good news is that the next test, for now, is not memtest86+.

If you want to get confirmation and ensure this doesn't throw crashes at some later date, you should run Prime95 torture test.


CPU - Stress Test with Prime95
Prime95 Torture test
If memtest86+ passes then run Prime95 torture test.
First open Core Temp to monitor CPU temperatures, don't go over 62C.
Open Prime95 and stop the test if it is running, in Advanced tab select 'Round off checking', in the Options tab select 'Torture Test...', in the window that opens select 'Blend', after 'Number of torture test threads to run' enter 4, then click OK to start the test.

Some sites/people recommend running this test for 12-24 hours, it has been heavily debated and everyone has their own opinion.
Mine is that 2-3 hours will give you a good idea of the stability of your system.
If you want a system that runs maxed out 24/7 then go for a longer test.

Be sure to watch the temperatures closely for the first 15 minutes, they should stabilize after a minute.
If the temps get too high, stop the test. This can be harmful to your system and indicates a cooling issue.

Let us know what you decide to do.

Would that erase and personal files?

No, it only affects system settings and won't change your e‑mail, photos, or other personal data on your computer.

All right, I'll give those tests a whirl today, as well.

I'll let you know the results.

Thanks for all of your help and input
