PC Randomly Shuts Off During RAM Intensive Applications - Page 11

post #101 of 155
Thread Starter 
I already moved from Marvell and turned off the controller or Jmb as well.

I reformatted last week with that custom copy of Windows from the thread I posted.

I slimmed it down at bit but didn't remove any big features. Maybe I should reinstall with the full, fatass version of Windows 7?

I'd give it a try, yes.

I guess it can't hurt. I'm worried now that once I reinstall, my PC will start crashing again.

I'd worry about all of that OS corruption before worrying about BSODs, those may be what are causing them in the first place smile.gif

It was crashing before reinstalling Windows, and that was with the full, uncut version.

Well, all I know is, there is a cbs log full of "cannot repair" files that are drivers, dlls, etc... and that is serious corruption. Your issue is even frustrating to me because it's one thing after another. First we think it's this, then this happens, then this happens, so I can never say "Okay, here's what it is", it's always "It can be this, or this, or this..".

At this point, now it could even be the SSD. I have zero experience with SSDs though, so I couldn't tell you. All I know is, that much corruption after a full install is impossible. Unless you're consistently installing a driver after a fresh install that's breaking EVERYTHING, that shouldn't happen, ever.

Very good point. I can't imagine how hard it would be for you on the other end. tongue.gif

What I want to do is do a clean install, no other drives attached, and run sfc off the bat to see what it says. Then one after the other I will add programs and drivers, testing it along the way.

If I get that many errors upon clean install, could it mean that it's the custom Windows 7 copy I created, SSD, CD I have used, or hardware?

By frustrating, I don't mean I'm angry with you or your issue by the way, I'm doing everything I can to help. By frustrating, I mean you have the worst luck ever, and it's making it increasingly difficult for me, and that makes me feel bad tongue.gif

As far as your idea goes, that would work great and would give you an answer. If you DO still get tons of corruption after running a fresh sfc, it can be two things: SSD or your disc. I have a VERY limited knowledge when it comes to SSDs, but I can only assume that there are unrepairable sectors or something.

Just a question, you weren't defragging this SSD, were you? I noticed you have Tuneup Utilities installed, and I know that offers defragging, and you're never ever supposed to defrag an SSD.

First off, no... I never ever defrag a SSD. tongue.gif And by default, TuneUp doesn't allow it. One thing I didn't do at my first Windows installation was manually set the alignment. Maybe I should this time?

Windows 7 automatically set it to 101mb (1024X101) instead of having it manually set to 4096.

Yes, you should definitely do that. We'll call this installation "let's do everything I didn't want to to before" tongue.gif
