  1. Alrighty. Thank you all so much for the help. Sorry it's been such a pain in the butt. Hopefully I won't have any reason to come back any time soon. >_<
  2. Since my financial aid has come in, I figure I'd prefer to just solve this problem with an upgrade. The original power supply I was looking at was sold out, and per suggestion, I changed out the RAM. I just want to make sure that these will all work together before I place my order. http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=22861492
  3. Oh, okay. Right now I have an NVIDIA Geforce GTS 450. I was worried that it might be one of the causes of the blue screens I've been having, so I was planning to get a new video card as well, though I have no idea which video cards are good. Also, do you have any recommendations for the RAM and the powersupply?
  4. These are the specs for the game. http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:System_Requirements
  5. In my case I was only intending to spend around $500-$600. I may not need a whole lot of processing power, but I would certainly like to be able to play Skyrim without any problems. I'm pretty certain that Skyrim is the most demanding game I have right now. Also, I would really prefer to not buy a premade computer. I've had so many bad experiences with them compared to this one that I've built that I want to avoid going back at all costs.
  6. Do you perhaps have any suggestions on a good motherboard? I'm apparently no good at picking them out. This is what I'm looking at currently, though I'm not sure whether they're actually good or not or if the power supply could even handle it all. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131823 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182071 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115234 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231313 As for the graphics card, I hadn't decided just yet, but I was hoping to get one that was
  7. So perhaps what I was thinking early on might resolve the problem. That is, to just build a "new" computer. I was planning to get a new motherboard, CPU, power supply, video card, and ram, and just re-use everything else. Any holes in my plan?
  8. Well, I just did a clean reinstall and just got a restart blue screen again....I'm about ready to throw this computer through a wall...
  9. Yes, I have experienced a few of them. Also, I just finished with the HD check and it came back clean. There wasn't anything wrong with it. If there's nothing else, I was planning on just re-installing windows.
  10. Thanks. Also, I think I was running the check on the wrong drive. I tried the other one and it seems to be working fine now.
  11. When I try to run the diagnostic tool straight from the .exe in my documents folder, this is what happens after only a few seconds.
  12. Okay, I tried downloading the DOS version like you said, and I burned it to a CD and had it set to boot from the CD drive, but nothing happened. What I downloaded was a .exe, not an iso like the directions on the page say. Did I do something wrong?
  13. Both hard drives are Western Digital. They're both 1 TB hard drives. The older one now only serves as a back-up drive since I had an issue with it in the past (viruses and stuff) and had to basically completely wipe it. The newer hard drive is what I have been using for Windows.
  14. I'm just wondering, but assuming there's nothing wrong with the HD's, would it cause any problems to simply reset Windows? Like basically wipe everything and do a fresh install?
  15. By the way, is there anything that I can do about these disk errors I keep getting in the event viewer that say, "The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, has a bad block"?
