Windows 7: BSOD when playing games/opening many browser tabs

21 Aug 2015   #31

Desk1 7 Home Prem / Desk2 10 Pro / Main lap Asus ROG 10 Pro 2 laptop Toshiba 7 Pro Asus P2520 7 & 10

As general rule I run chkdsk with /f and /r on the whole drive.

Any malware scans come up with anything?

Superspyware removed a whole bunch of cookies. The other two were clean. Ran another chkdsk, also clean.

Tried any of these yet?

I was thinking that it might be failing SATA cables too, Derek. It's worth checking so check it.

Look I reckon it might be worth re-seating all cables, cards, sticks and cleaning the slots too.


Now as for the slots to clean them use a strip of old credit card about1/2 inch wide nip the corners off one end - preferably round them offhold a piece of thin lint free cloth over the end dab on some form ofalcohol - isopropyl alcohol (if you want to be pedantic) but any ethanol basedalcohol even methylated spirits (called rubbing alcohol in the US) are good and GENTLYswipe along the slots.

This can also be done for the GPU slot/s and also the contacts of thesticks or cards - not the stick but some lint free cloth of course. See my picfor the sick but please be very gentle doing it if you are in any doubt -please ask before doing it but I use this all the time and have yet to damageanything. Plus make sure the card/sticks contacts are clean too but begentle
