Windows 7: Help with bsod,think It's a hardware failure

08 May 2014   #61

Windows 10 Pro/ Windows 10 Pro Insider

I recently looked for a 775 motherboard. I thought the prices were terrible. Some wanted more than you could buy a current socket board for.

With a clean install, Windows 7 Installation disk will install a generic chipset controller and you can install whatever you want or keep what Windows installed. That is really the only way to uninstall a chipset controller, unless yours is listed in the Add/Remove Programs section of Control panel. A clean install helps sometimes anyway. I just finished one on this computer and wasn't really having any problems.

Windows 7 Professional x64

After more than a year and a half with the problem (It started on November 2013) I can mark this as solved and the computer is working fine without replacing any components.

Two weeks ago and with the summer, in my city the temperatures go about 40C so after two years I changed the thermal compound of the computer, but I removed the cpu from the socket and when I was cleaning the socket I noticed that ONE of the 775 pins of it was like it was out of it's place.

Sorry for wasting your time because I didn't checked things like that.
