My computer ran perfectly fine for 4months after i built it, until a few days ago, when I had to do my homework with microsoft word. After about 20 minutes of typing my computer BSOD'd with the error code STOP: 0x000000F4( 0x00000003, 0x8990FDA0, 0x8990FF14, 0x805D1140). So I just restarted and continued doing my homework, then after another 20minutes it BSOD'd again with a similar error code. Then I reinstalled microsoft word, and it still BSOD, then I realized that when I leave my computer on idle for about 20minutes or so it BSOD also. So I googled my error code and read that it maybe my ram that's unstable, and so I ran memtest for about 7hours and had no errors. Then I used windows repair, but that only made matters worse.. now I even BSOD on the window's loading screen. So I booted into safemode and did a virus scan and my Norton Internet Security found nothing. The only way I could get into windows was to boot into safe mode, but then it finally happens and I BSOD'd in safemode. Then I wiped my harddrive and did a clean install of windows xp pro. Finally I got cs installed and I decided to play it, and within 5 minutes of the game it happens... I got a bsod with almost the same error code above.. now I have no idea what to do and I can't play any games without getting a bsod.... Can anyone help me please.
