Windows 7: BSOD caused by Illustrator perhaps? Also corrupted certificates

20 Sep 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Hi Layback Bear

Well, the new build is going well. To my chagrin the board in this new barebones machine is a Gigabyte board, but so far it has been behaving perfectly. I have installed W7HP on the 120GB SSD from the old build (had to do it twice as the first time it put the MBR on the HDD also from the old build). With fresh drivers etc. everything is working very fast and very smoothly.

One modification I have made has been to move the library directories on to the HDD using the instructions from this forum (I figured that there was enough room on the SSD for user system files and it was unlikely writing those files would cause adverse wear given the machine's current usage. However, when the machine was switched on today, in the user directory there were 2 of each of the library folders (My Docs, My Music etc). It looks like the library folders have been recreated on the SSD. Does anyone know why this might have happened or how to prevent it happening again?

Also, I have a large music library on a NAS, but I couldn't get WMP12 to discover this DNLA library. Instead, as I have mapped a drive to the NAS I thought I could simply add the files directly to the WMP library. However, when the machine was switched on today WMP12 spent 10 minutes loading the music all over again. So, is there a trick to getting WMP12 to discover a DNLA service on a NAS (ReadyNAS Duo). Or is there a better way to add files to the library so that they are not reloaded every time the machine is switched on?

Oh, and there is a chance that I might have fixed the original machine. I had 2 (identical) sticks of memory which I thought were in slots 1 and 3, but when I was fitting a temporary HDD (and reseating all the frontpanel cables that had fallen off the board) I noticed that the sticks were actually in slots 2 and 4. Could this cause the BSOD? I am guessing there is a chance that it was (the new rebuild using XP seems ok although it feels slow and I can't get the mic to work). I also noticed the memory settings in the BIOS were set to turbo rather than standard. Something else I wish I had noticed before buying a new machine. Oh well.

Thanks again

Take a look through your old motherboard manual. Most motherboards do have a preference to where to install ram. I recommend when having a problem with a computer set the bios to default. You can always set them to your liking later step at a time and test. I can't help you with moving your music around because I have never done it. Windows Explorer still has many mysteries in my mind. Because your computers are up and working I would recommend marking this thread solved and start a new thread on moving things. You would get a better response by people that have the necessary knowledge in those subjects.
Happy computing.
