Chkdsk results
Idiot me restarted (hard reset) the computer when it was stuck loading drivers - didn't realise it was running chkdsk in the background - when it rebooted it stopped at the same place but left it there for 15 mins or so and it finished successfully.
In my DOS days you used to be able to see the progress of chkdsk.

Anyway - see attached

Furmark to come!

Ok, all done. Very frustrating - no errors to be found.
Any thoughts or something I have missed?

Please remove your G.Skill RAM sticks while troubleshooting.

Chkdsk has made some changes in the file system, which from time to time happen to help a lot

Good idea axe0.
Mismatched ram can cause lots of problems.

Been having a think about this overnight...

The G.Skill RAM was installed over a year ago, however I have recently cloned my old SSD to a bigger one. This was earlier this year. Could that explain the errors?

I have re-run the chkdsk and results attached -

Also - While studying the Event Viewer I notice a consistent error
I keep getting Event ID: 7023 errors on boot since the start of the year

"The Superfetch service terminated with the following error:

The age of a part usually doesn't matter, except when talking about years.

We can't rule out anything so the ssd could be a possibility.

As far as my experience with this kind of crashes goes, I have yet to see an issue where superfetch is really involved in.

Sorry for the late reply.

Thanks again for all the help. I won't worry about the superfetch then.

Since doing the chkdsk I have not had anymore issues for the last 3 days so I will flag this as the answer and mark this as solved.

Sounds like there could have been some corruption when cloning but not bad enough for it to present itself until now.
I will keep my eye on things and if need be, if i can't continue this thread, start a new one linking this thread.

Again, I really appreciate everyone's help!

Just to prevent this kind of issues in the future, I recommend to run the chkdsk with /r switch every once in a while on each partition (like once in a month).
/r includes the /f,
- /f fixes errors on the disk,
- /r locates bad sectors, attempts to recover readable data and includes additional analysis of physical disk errors.

More info on the available switches: Disk Check - Windows 7 Help Forums


A system file check, sfc /scannow command, after updates from Windows Update is also recommended
SFC can also be done monthly, because of the update cycle Microsoft uses (every 2nd tuesday of the month)
