BSOD non stop.......

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
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.

Did you reset everything to stock?


You might want to check your hard drive... maybe it is dying (the BSOD might have first been caused by page file access or so).

What I gathered, this is some memory issue, but this could be RAM, hard drive, or even video memory....

but these bugcheck errors might be any component... hard to figure out..

I've been searching around Google and I can't find a thing.

Try dropping down to stock speeds (if applicable) and run Orthos Prime. If the computer blue-screens with the same error code, it's the CPU.

I think it's safe to say you got a hardware problem of some sort if you've done a reinstall and the problem persists.

Do a Prime 95 blend test.

Well The Only things that springs to mind when that happens is RAM....When this has happened to me its always beeen the RAM. However i would also diagnose your PSU aswel as your RAM.

Im kinda at a crossroad on this too.... RAM....or PSU....

Either way, we know it's something not right. On a fresh install none the less.

Try swapping your ram with someone else's for an hour or two. See if you get the BSOD then. If you dont...you have one-four faulty ram sticks

Well I ran Orthos Prime for my cpu last night, but I fell asleep.... When I woke up and looked at the monitor, it said reboot and select a proper boot device, or insert a proper boot media, or something like that. I assumed that my computer bsod and restarted. So I restarted the computer and it booted windows fine. Im guessing that my computer bsod'd after 37644.25 GFLOP of Orthos Prime test since that was the last number written in the log. And now that Enterprise and Distraught mentioned it, for the past few months I've been turning off the psu and the surge protector at night when I finished using the computer, would that mess up the psu or damage some of my hardware?? Well I can't get ram from most of my friends because their computers use ddr ram not ddr2. I guess I could try booting my computer with 1 ram stick at a time and see if it will bsod, to try and see if 1 of my ram sticks maybe the cause of this problem. And at the same time I guess I could take out my psu and cpu from my other computer, and get ready to try them on this computer.
