Windows 7: BSOD watching Twitch and updating Starcraft 2 error 0x00000050

BSOD watching Twitch and updating Starcraft 2 error 0x00000050

First of all, hello! I am new to the forums, and new to trying to fix a computer I built

I am not totally dumb, but I am having a really hard time with this PC pretty much since I built it. I have had a bunch of people I thought were good with computers (and probably really are) look at it and no one has really been able to get the problems to go away. One of the issues I had was a variety of BSOD errors, apparently my PC was running HOT for a while and now with a new water cooling system in place it is fine, but I am still getting BSOD errors. The most recent one was 0x00000050.

I ran the program the forums suggested and have attached the zipped files. If anyone out there is smarter than me and can help me through this I would be insanely grateful. I have no problems removing/re-installing hardware or running w/e programs etc. I am just at my wits end, and short of buying a whole new computer I no longer know what to do

Thank you in advance to anyone who is willing and able to help!

Hmm, I'm seeing a lot of issues with Windows files and services either being corrupted or the memory they're working with is being corrupted.

How hot was the system running before you installed a new cooler? There's a possibility that permanent damage has been inflicted on one or more computer components due to the intense heat.

I reckon we do a few hardware tests:

RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test; Blend; overnight (9+ hours)
Drives: Seatools - All basic tests aside from the Fix all, Long generic or the advanced ones. Also provide us a screenshot of CrystalDiskInfo output.

All of these are included in the UBCD if you prefer a Live CD environment (which is the best environment to test hardware on). Note that Prime95 currently does not work on the latest version of UBCD due to a bug. Also, please provide us temps/voltages using HWInfo with Sensors only option checked. Log two 30-minute instances: one for idle, and one for high load. If you can get the system to crash during high load logging, that's even better. Last, make sure that when running Prime95 that you check temps during first 30minutes or so to see if temps are stable. Prime95 runs very hot so be sure your cooling can handle it before letting it run extensively.

You may also want to just try reinstalling Windows (after you do the hardware tests). There's the possibility Windows didn't install all that well, and there's tons of issues popping up as a result.


Solitary crashdump wasn't all that helpful. However, syslog and applog was filled with both user and kernel mode services/apps crashing all the time because of Windows modules tripping on memory access errors. There's a good possibility either drive or memory is bad.
