I am having new computer problems on a build 1 year old...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The build in my sig has started freezing a couple minutes after start-up. I haven't installed any new hardware or software recently. The computer freezes but the mouse will still move. If I wait long enough an error box pops up and the bsod flashes so fast that I can't read it. The monitor loses signal but the computer still runs.

I have tried testing the memory but the computer locked up at 99%. I tried a system restore to a couple weeks prior but that didn't work. It will even freeze in safe mode.

What does this sound like to you? I am on my second video card as the first failed in a couple months. Could it be that. It is tough to figure things out because the computer locks up before I can do many diagnostics.

There could be a number of things causing this, but sounds more like a faulty HD or corrupt file system in my opinion. If you have an OEM Windows CD you could use to run a repair chkdsk.

Could you post the minidump?

Can you install software called who crashed and post the results. This will analyse the minidump created.

Along with chkdsk, run: sfc.exe /scannow from the command prompt. That will check for any corrupt system files and then repair them.
