How do I fix Bluescreens?

A few days ago I keep starting tog et Bluescreens.

It happens over and over about 2-3 times the it might stop. I think all my drivers are up to date since I chec...

You need to RUN tests instead of hoping for others to come up with solutions based on messages like this.

The fact is that whatever the blue screens says is hardly the EXACT nature of the problem. It's just a derivative mulfunction caused by a real issue. Could direct you in a certain direction, but that does not say exactly what's wrong with your machine.

Most blue-screens occur because of hard ware defects.

So, as suggested in the beginning of the thread, test you hardwares. 

1. Firstly, make sure that none of the motherboard capacitors are leaky or blown.  There are a lot of them.  I strongly recommend you look at each thoroughly instead of cutting corners.

2. Make sure that the CPU fan spins up when you turn on the computer. High CPU temp will cause it to bluescreen.

3. Test the RAM and RAM slots of the motherboard.  To start off, try one stick of RAM in one slot, if that doesn't work, try the same RAM module in the other slot.  If that still doesn't work, try the other RAM stick in each of the slot. You will know which RAM stick or slot is defective, or whether RAM is related to the issue by doing this.    If computer boots up but then after a while it crases, then go to step 4 and 5.

4. Look into BIOS and check the current CPU temperature. Make sure it's not too high.

5. Make sure that the memory settings are correct on BIOS.

6. Run memtest 4.0a . Download the ISO image for making a bootable disc, unzip if necessary, on another computer.  Then using a software like Roxio, Nero, or free ImgBurn, make a bootable disc using a blank CD.  Stick the CD into this computer, boot from the CD, and run it for several passes at least.  This will take hours. Do not cut corners again.

7. If the RAM test comes out find, and then test the HDD with Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostic.  Again, get an ISO version of it and make a bootable disc with a blank CD and boot from the disc. Check the SMART status of your hard drive and run the Extended Test on the Caviar Blue HDD.

After all these come out fine, we will start suspecting the Power Supply Unit or the motherboard.

8. On Windows, you may be able to look at the voltages that your PSU is outputting. If you can stay on Windows long enough, you can install HWMonitor 1.18 and see that. 

If that's cool, then you could try reinstalling Windows.  


p.s. Please do not open another thread about this blue screen. It will not help you at all.  [;)]

Its found under start when you select all programs unless you set it up as a menu item when you configured the OS.

Check C:\Windows\Minidump directory for bluescreen dumps.   Usually, BSOD is so fast you can't read it.   These files should give you some idea as to what is going wrong.

Could be a RAM error.

Could be a corrupt system file.

Could be a CPU error caused by PSU output fluctuation.

Could be a resource conflict.

An hour of memtest86+, an hour of Prime95, an hour of MSI kombuster...

Should narrow down the cause of the BSOD..

Your specs would help and whether or not you have OCed anything since there are many things that can and will cause the BSOD.

It is not always driver updates sometimes you have to step down to the next 1 or 2 lower drivers due to conflicts. Then there is software conflicts with noncertified software, software that is not signed, problems with hardware such as ram, mobo or HDDs etc. You also have to consider the registry and how much junk remains there due to updates, removed software and stuff that is not removed automaticialy.

OCing that is not stablizied due to incorrect configuration can also cause BSOD even when booting up.
