Is it my cpu?

post #1 of 98
Thread Starter 
Since Mid June, I've been having problems with my computer. First, it was my motherboard. It was preventing me from turning my computer on. I had that replaced. Before that, I had my gfx card rma'd because I thought it was causing my monitor issues. 2 days ago, I decided to check my memory because the bsods kept getting worse and more frequent. The one set was bad alright, so I switched the set and tested my original set. It seemed all my computer problems had been fixed because everything work perfectly for a good 60 hours without a single bsod or error, but then I started playing Skyrim. Afterward my first session it bsod'd. I didn't think much of it since it seemed a random event. Then it happend again after a game of final fantasy 10 via pcsx2. Then again during. And then as soon as i logged into windows. And since then pretty much every problem i had before has started flooding back gradually. i have checked, replaced or rma'd every single piece except the cpu over the last 5 months. could that be what's causing all my troubles? it has passed linx, occt, and prime95 stress tests. i also ran 4 benchmarks on it.

Turn off "autonatically restart after BSOD" and Google the BSOD error code.
Check Windows Event Viewer (see Windows Help).

And stop RMAing parts that are good. We all pay for that.

Set it to stock and see if the BSODs stop. That will give you a definite answer.

I blame overclock. Go stock and see if you BSOD. If you still do then reinstall the OS.

my computer wouldn't restart on a bsod even if aut restart were turned on. (it's not by the way.). after a bsod, my computer freezes up and i must turn it off them back on. and the bsod codes are never the same. i can google all i want and still not get what i need. they give me very vague answers.
