Windows keeps crashing.

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I just recently built my gaming PC and I've had nothing but trouble since. I installed Windows 7 64 bit on my PC a few times due to a few problems and now windows crashes around 5 minutes into doing whatever I'm doing. First the GUI will freeze, and around 30 seconds later my mouse will stop moving. I have to reset to get it working. I'm in safe mode right now trying to update the drivers and as of yet it hasn't crashed. It's never crashed in safe mode. I don't think it's the ram, as I've checked all my bios settings out and ran memtest and everything seems to be fine with it. Can you guys help?

No blue screen, just freezes. Nothing moves on the screen, mouse doesn't move, etc.

I havent done a ton or formatting with windows 7 really to tell you any experience knowledge but you could always try reformatting the hard drive, maybe it was a bad install?

I'm no expert but I'd suggest clearing out all the drivers and doing a clean install of windows.

If the problem persists after that it could be a hardware issue. I had quite a few hiccups on my recent build installing windows and I had to reformat my drive twice before I got it working eventually without any problems by doing that.

I dont think that is it. I just installed it for the 4th time. The reason for each install is:
1-first boot, but a power failure during install messed it up
2- installed 32-bit
3- wrong hdd
4- to install it on the right hdd <-- this is the install i am using now

Hardware issue..
Check the RAM..
If there are more than one ram connected to the system please unplug some of them and then try starting or using the system.
If only one RAM module connected then that is probably faulty..
how you setup your bios for windows install ahci or ide, if you have set ahci and windows has set IDE every time you boot its going to crash, try it before another uninstall
go to your bios and set to IDE and try boot and see if it works , if yes you always reverse to ahci, even after installation.

Instruction: There is one way to fix this, although you need to have knowledge of registry editing.
The detailed steps from Microsoft website are as follows:
Exit all Windows-based programs.
Press [Win] + R or take the RUN option from the start menu.
Now type regedit there and press Enter Key to open up the Registry Editor Window.
If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\System\\CurrentControlSet\\Ser vic es\\msahci
In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.



In the Value data box, type 0 [3 is default], and then click OK.




On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.
Restart your computer
Go to BIOS and enable AHCI, Save & Reboot
Another restart will be required to finish the driver installation.
