is it the power supply or software

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
For about 6 months to a year my computer has been randomly crashing. I had the windows shutdown unexpectedly error box come up when i rebooted and it gave an error "BSOD locale id 1033 but whenever it crashes i don't have BSOD screen come up. I can't find much information on 1033. is it bad hardware? I would think its the power supply but somethings seem to point to something else. The crashes had stopped for months, then all of a sudden i get a constant crash spree often not even being able to get into windows until about 10 crashes or more later. If i do manage to get into windows and not crash within a minute or so it will crash when i open a game sometimes. I don't want to pay for another power supply unless i am absolutely sure that is the problem. Its a good corsair power supply so its sad it would be failing already.

its hard to tell with just that limited information you are giving. the best thing you can do is to reinstall windows to remove software out of the equation. if reinstalling windows does not fix your problem then its the hardware

I found a program called bluescreenview which opens the minidump files. here is a screenshot of its output. seems usb driver/hardware related.

When searching for BSODs, use the BCCODE (fe).

Try unplugging some USB devices.

All i have plugged in is my keyboard and mouse. but i reinstalled my onboard usb drivers and reinstalled so maybe that will help. I have not crashed again yet and running skyrim but it has stopped like this many times before.

So i reinstalled windows again and it has crashed 1 times since then. so im thinking my motherboard or some other component is slowly dieing. But what still bugs me is if its hardware wouldn't whatever part it is have died by now? This has been happening on and off for a long time, if it was the power supply surely it would not have lasted this long if it was failing? I have also noticed that the unexpected shutdown window does not open most times after crashing. So i don' t know if all these crashes are BSODs like the one above since there is no mini dumps.

NEVER MIND. The problem is STILL happening. I thought it was the keyboard but im not sure now. Im starting to crash again. I don't see how it could be software because i don't have much installed. It never has crashed in safe mode but i can't run a game in safe mode. Most of the time if i can get to the desktop without crashing if i open skyrim it will usually crash pretty soon. I know nothing is overheating. Could it be my motherboard having problems? I notice sometimes after a crash after post it will say no keyboard found and if i shut it down and start again the error doesn't come up. I have tried disabling ports, plugging in keyboard and mouse into other ports and nothing is stopping these crashes. i am absolutely out of ideas.

It may be one of your RAM sticks. I had the same problem as you once. mad.gif

Random BSODs here and there. I left my comp on sat in front of it and stared the desktop, then BOOM randomly. Sometimes it took 1 hour, sometimes it crashed while loading the OS.
If you have multiple sticks, try it with one, then alternate. One of the sticks may be faulted.

edit: OR it might be the PSU, in fact. Maybe you OCed something too far, and when it uses CPU a bit much, or even GPU power, therefore shutting down. Or did you undervolt something? Had that case too, undervolting caused BSODs here and there.
