Windows 7: error 6008 every few days

10 Jul 2012   #11

windows 7 ultimate 64bit

ok i took the psu to the lab and they said that its fine

i re-plugged it to the MOBO and now it works fine
plus the bios shows under 5V : 5V and sometimes 5.4V

ahhh about the test
did the GPU test.. it reached 62C and didnt cause any error or stuff...
the prime 95 ran for 2 hours straight and the CPU reached 100% but no error and all tests passed
couldnt do the memory scan though since my pc is connected to my TV and i cant watch VGA or whatever

i have hd sentinal pro and it said that my cruiser ssd 60GB has 100% health and that my WD had 9%
plus the samsung has 100% too...

after all that i conclude that maybe i didnt plug the PSU strong enough

It could be. After plugging all of your PSU cables in properly does your computer still crash?

god damn it its faking again
the pc crashed again

and now the bios shows that the 5v is 4.560v

but if the guys from the lab said that the psu is fine could this be a mobo problem?

after shutting down the pc and unplugging the AC cable and letting the pc "rest" for 40 min or so
i plugged everything back and the bios showed 4.800v

something is definitely messed up here....
i just dont know if its the PSU or the MOBO and i dont have anyway to check it...
not that i know of anyway...

Do you have a spare PSU or one in another computer that is 750w+? Even if a friend is willing to lend you one you could use if for an hour or so and see how it goes. If it still crashes then it's most likely to be the mobo.

iam pretty sure its the PSU

i've check it like so

unplugged any usb device i had and ran prime 95 for 3 hours
then restarted the pc and went straight to the bios
the 5v was normal

then plugged any usb device i had EXCEPT for the samsung(thinking that maybe it caused all this mess)
and ran prime 95 for 30 min
then went to the bios and saw the 5v showing 4.600V

so thats that..
it has problem whenever i plug a usb
about a secondery PSU...thats tricky... but i might take my little brother one and do the check..
thats a great idea!

Hopefully you can get a hold of one, a second PSU would definitely help.
