Windows 7: BSOD while doing nothing and while browsing webcomic

16 Oct 2013   #11

Windows 7 64-bit

Well, all the RAM and slots passed at least 7 passes of the memory test even though some errors showed up with all the RAM installed that first time. So I tried to do SpinRite 6, but after turning on s.m.a.r.t. for all the drives, it took over 30 minutes to get to the next menu. I went into BIOS and turned on smart, but spinrite still took over 30 minutes to give me a choice of hard drives and it crashed when I was scrolling down the list.

I ran HD Tune to read the s.m.a.r.t status. Three of the 5 hard drives had errors. Two were just warnings of relocated sector count, two on each. But the third failed. It was an airflow temp of 91 and said "Error! Threshold reached. Replacing the hard drive recommended." Thinking maybe I found the problem, I shrunk all the partitions enough that they'd all fit on the two good drives and used Acronis to move the partitions to the two drives that didn't list errors. Thenn I unplugged the ones with errors. Worked find for a hour or two, but then another BSOD.

At this point, we've already assembled a new faster computer for my friend, and I don't think I even want to try salvaging any parts from this one since there's no telling what is wrong.

Thanks for all the help, but I think it's time to just wipe all the drives and let it set in the garage until someone takes it in a garage sale.

Have you tested all of the RAM with memtest. How did that go? It may be a bad setting in BIOS for the RAM too, try setting it for default RAM settings and try memtest, if you get any errors at all you may stop the est and go to the next stick/slot.

If memtest is reading right your CPU is cooking, it says 95C. This could cause the BSOD with too much heat. Is the cooler or fans clogged with dust or have quit working? when in Windows use Core Temp to monitor temps.
Core Temp
Be aware there are add-ons bundled with it, just Decline or uncheck them.

BSOD when browsing the web
Lately there's been a BSOD going on that only seems to happen when I browse the web (I do this daily so it's hard to tell). It's happened twice since 11/29. I try to navigate to/on a web page and I get the BSOD. No specific website. Here are the files.
