Windows 7: Just shipped my computer to myself, now BSOD

29 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit OEM, installed January 2012
Just shipped my computer to myself, now BSOD

I shipped my computer to myself because I was moving without a car. UPS wrapped it pretty good in custom packaging and I stuffed the inside of the computer with anti-static bubble wrap. I wrapped the hard drive in clothes (I was out of bubble wrap) and brought it with me on the plane.

I unwrapped it, took the bubble wrap out, popped the hard drive in and used it for maybe two hours, when randomly while watching a YouTube video I got the blue screen.

Upon restarting it said:

This is a very high end system so I hope nothing was damaged. Thoughts? Let me know what additional info I can give to help diagnosis. I added my system specs to my profile and attached BSOD dump files. Thanks in advance!

Well, it seems like people ignored my post for some reason. But I opened up my computer to see if anything got knocked around and needed to be re-seeded. I noticed my CPU heatsink was very loose and it was impossible to get it to snap back into place securely. Could that be the culprit?

Yes, that could be the cause. How tightly did they stuff bubble wrap inside the case? If they really jammed it in there, it wouldn't suprise me if some things were knocked loose.

Re-check all your connections very carefully and get that heatsink seated properly.
