New 3570k wierd crashes - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Everything is at optimized defaults, at least until I sort it out.
Couldn't even calculate windows experience index without crashing, but im running a torture test on prime95 now and everything is a-ok. Im starting to lean in the way of I have a bad windows download. Luckily I have a home premium cd lying around that im ripping to usb now (no cd drive) and will see if that sorts things out

everything is a-ok, might i add, in SAFE MODE

Okay so, more wierdness. Reinstalled windows, took out my pcie wireless card, redid all the wiring in the computer, prime95 runs good thumb.gif

froze for a while when i pressed stop workers, had me a bit scared but just popped back into life, no BSOD.
It would appear to be working again, gonna stick the network card back in see if that messes everything back up.

pcie, its a TP link something or other
put windows 8 on it to see if that helps, no dice. So its not a bad windows installation either or my computer's particular aversion to windows 7. But cpu stressing works perfectly in safe mode, so i don't know if i'm kidding myself but I'm quietly hopeful that there is nothing fatally wrong with the cpu/mobo. if getting rid of the network card solves everything then ill sack it, buy a usb nano adapter and be done with it biggrin.gif

If that doesn't solve it I can't think of anything else to rule out :| except the fact that I don't have a graphics card in it yet. Im running my computer off the hdmi in the back of the motherboard until it comes in the post, it isn't possible that stressing the cpu really hard without a graphics card causes the onboard graphics to mess up and cause a freeze is it? i doubt it, surely the processors are designed to be allowed to be used without discrete graphics, headscratch.gif

Test out your rams using 1 ram at a time. Also see if your rams are in fully cause some time you think there in but really they are not all the way in

Good points, but neither broken ram nor partially inserted ram explain why the the hardware can be made to work hard perfectly in safe mode but not in a normal boot handlebarssmiley.png
I noticed how temperature and hardware monitor programs don't work in safe mode either. Could the OS's inability to see what the processor is doing in safe mode have something to do with it?
I'm still kind of thinking its the PCIE but we shall see tomorrow when I can tinker with it again.

Any more suggestions for this odd problem would be greatly appreciated

Safe mode is reduced to only the core drivers required to run windows, so my guess is that it is a driver issue, not a cpu issue. Update all of your devices in device manager and try again. if that doesnt help, In the run bar type "msconfig" and start disabling start up programs and services until you can pinpoint which one is causing it.

edit: on windows 8 the startup programs list is found in task manager.

Absolute nightmare, pc crashes on BIOS update, now I have a dead mobo. Not going to waste time asking how to fix it because I know better, gonna RMA it to amazon, i'm guessing the motherboard could well have been the problem I've been having all along. Harumph frown.gif
