Slow boot. Random Crashing. Help!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Today I got back a system i build for someone a few months back. The system has been crashing at random, very slow on booting up, showing artifacts in skyrim and been generally slow to use.

I have tested RAM, GPU andPSU all by swaping them into my system and testing my known good components in the system im troubleshooting. To no avail. Everything seems fine. I have cleared CMOS and tried to discharge the system. My thought now is it must be the motherboard but i want some opinions please.

Specs:
Mobo: ASUS Crosshair V
Processor: AMD 965BE at stock
RAM: Gskill 8GB 1600 at stock
GPU: XFX R6870
Tested with 700W CM PSU and 850W OCZ PSU

Evreything is stock speeds and voltage
Thanks in advance for any help:)

Edit. Artifacts in skyrim were fixed with a driver update.

No, what is the best way to do this?

The easiest way to check the hard drive would be to go into the command prompt (start>run>cmd) and run the command
chkdsk /r

Report its findings back here please : ) based on the results we might use a more advanced hard drive tool.

How about when you power up the system , does POST happen quick ? or is it just under the OS you are facing problem ?

When it is powered on it seems to post twice. It will show the ASUS logo, then go blank, then show it again. Then boot. It will run under load fine, 9 hours of blend stressing 6GB of ram and no errors. Will run any game for long periods of time with no issues. It seems to be only at idle that it crashes.

You mean when the system is not doing anything under windows it crashes ? hmm posting twice could mean it may be getting a reset signal (ah those days 8048 ) well that's just my guess. do you have Linux where you can check the same during idle ?

I don't have easy access to the PC justnow annoyingly. It will run anything that puts high load on it but anything like internet browsers or itunes will cause it to crash. The other thing is when logging on the screen will flash black for a second or less, then continue to load windows. Could this be realted? I noticed my own PC does not do this

Is there a way to do this without swaping it out? Iv taken it out and checked for any scorches or dammaged capacitors. All looks fine to me. I dont have another board to swap in its place
