    Ok. Well, today I haven't had any problems booting up and remaining stable ... but, I don't know if I can trust that yet. I had a nice 4 days before asking for help. I thought it was a heating problem. In those 4 days the a/c was on and I didn't get a bsod or any other problems. I hope it's fixed, but can't get my hopes up yet. Also, Windows is still scanning for updates. It's been about 2 hours now. Roy said to keep it going all night.

    Do you think this has anything to do with my reformat? Maybe I did something wrong or maybe it installed screwed up?????

    No good. On my first try I grabbed coffee. When I came back it was giving me a choice to boot up in safe mode or normally. I did safe mode and rebooted. Then when my desktop was back I got a bsod. Also, windows never left me update.

    A BSOD in safe mode would be the result of hardware problems, rarely a bad Windows installation.
    If you've performed either of the suggested tests, please run them again per the instructions provided.





    Diagnostics Troubleshooting

    Read carefully before proceeding.



       Warning
    If you're overclocking your system, revert back to stock clocks now.

       Note
    Test the system once the overclock is removed before continuing with the steps outlined below.


    Part One: CPU Stress Test
    Part Two: MemTest86+ RAM Diagnostic
    Part Three: Hard Drive Diagnostics
    Part Four: GPU Stress Test




    ONE

     CPU TEST


    Run Prime95 and/or IntelBurnTest to stress test your CPU. Prime95 - Stress Test Your CPU - Windows 10 Forums & CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest

       Warning
    Your CPU temperatures will rise quickly while under this stress test. Keep a keen eye on them and abort the test if overheating occurs.

    Make a photo of the result and post it.




    TWO

     RAM TEST


    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 7 Help Forums

       Note


    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

    Make a photo of the result and post it please.

    Addition:
    If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
    If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.




    THREE

     HDD TEST


    Run SeaTools to check the integrity of your HDD. SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use - Windows 7 Help Forums
    Run the long test.
       Note
