Windows 7: Motherboard, CPU or PSU issue ? Urgent!

25 May 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate X64
Motherboard, CPU or PSU issue ? Urgent!

So let me explain what kind of issues i'm getting in my System but first of all im going to tell you my specs:

- MOBO: ASRock G41C-S
- CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 2.66GHz
- RAM: Kingston 4GB DDR3 1333MHz
- GPU: ASUS ATi Radeon HD 7750 1GB GDDR5
- HDD: WD Black 1TB & WD Blue 500GB
- PSU: GlacialTech 550W Real-Power

The issues i'm getting:

- Hangs sometimes at "Starting Windows" while booting (but only sometimes and if i restart it manually it will boot successfuly)
- Freezes while browsing on any browser and need to be restarted by restarting it manually otherwise it will stuck there
- Sometimes it crashes hardly, I mean it will freez up without doing anything and i can hear the "buzzing noise" coming from the headphones
- Restarting by itself.

Things that i tried to test and see it what exactly is causing these issues are:

- Reinstalling Windows 7 with all needed drivers and updates
- Unpluging graphics card and testing it by just using the onboard graphics (still same)
- Checking Hard Drives for bad sectors with HD Tune by full testing (but they are healthy as well)
- Checking Ram Memory for errors using Memtest86 with 3 passes and didn't get any error
- Testing Graphics Card using Furmark for an hour.

So i don't know what other i can do, i did my maximum from my knowledge but still no luck, so the only things that i'm thinking is causing these issues is mobo, cpu and psu but i don't want to spent moneys to buy an psu or motherboard without ensuring which one of these factors is given me those problems, so i really need an advice from you what do you think about this ? Thank you so much!

As Dude has posted. You do not need to have a BSOD for that tool to be useful. Sometimes it will still gather information for our experts to analyze and use.
