Irritating BSOD problem

Recommended Posts

Okay, I checked and there didn't seem to be any leaking capacitors.  The only thing other than dust was a small dead roach in the front corner of the case away from all of the electronic stuff.

The question comes to mind...  Does the CPU heatsink fins and fan have a "dust carpet" ?  Overheating was mentioned as a causative factor.

I've been trying to make sure I dust it once every month or two, so there wasn't too much dust in the heatsink.  The video card was fairly dusty though when I moved it to the other PCI port, so I dusted it as best I could without messing with it too much.

Also with respect to the fans, do they look like they are spinning freely, or do they look like they may be dragging or running slow?

The fans appear to be running just fine, but I found something that might prove useful.  Is it normal for so many errors to occur in such a short amount of time?

 

Note, the highlighted error log in the first picture was generated just after having recovered from one of the blue screen restarts.

I don't think I am unless the guys who set up the BIOS originally over-clocked it.  Otherwise, I don't know how to do it and I've heard it is risky and can be really hard on your system, so I never really wanted to try it out.

This error just happened as I was listening to a baseball game while browsing the internet.  I thought for sure my computer would shut down while it was happening, but it recovered.

Over-Clocking is setting the CPU frequency higher than suggested.  For example if the base frequency is 100MHz and you set it to 1106MHz

 

 

Go to;  http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect

 

Choose;  "Check your system for updates"

 

If it is IE, it will install an ActiveX control

if it is Firefox it will run a Java Applet (you will need Oracle Java v7 update 40)

 

It will examine your system for Intel based hardware and either indicate there is an update or it will indicate "This version is valid." which means the Inntel associated driver is up-to-date.

 

---

1.  The multiplier makes it the actual CPU frequency.  If the CPU is rated @ 2.4GHz using a base frequency set at 100MHz then the multiplier is 24x. If the base frequency is increased to 106MHz then the CPU is over-clocked to 2.544GHz.

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"?

Who is the Manufacturer of the Hard Disk ? (Western Digital, Hitachi, SeaGate, etc)

until the manufacturer of the drive is posted and david jumps back in ... a little information .

if a HD is going bad (ie : bad sectors) it is almost a sure bet that it will have to be replaced .

some drives will have a few bad sectors and that will be all there is ... the drive stabilizes and it can run for years with no further problems .

the drive has embedded firmware hat allows it to "route around" or "bypass" the bad sectors , akin to what happens when roadwork is done ...

except there are no people waving flags . :lol:

in other cases , the drive is on the downhill run and it will fail (be damaged) to the point of catastrophic failure ... dead in the water .

there is a diagnostic on the drive known as SMART ... this keeps track of many events and things particular to the HD .

the best thing to do is to first download a "disk checking" tool that is specific to the HD manufacturer ...

david can help you out with that end of things .

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?

Assuming there is no problem with the hard disk, wiping the OS and reinstalling the OS will negate any present problems (assuming that during the installation one doesn't introduce new problems).

Have you experienced any new BSoD conditions since the last time you posted a few days ago ?

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.
