Changed everything and the PC still crashes

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I've been dealing with this computer for a while now and i'm running out of ideas to fix it. My PC used to crash while playing any games so i thought it was a GPU or PSU problem but even after i changed those i still had the same problem. This seemed like the perfect time for me to upgrade from Bloomfield to Haswell so i bought a brand new Motherboard, CPU and RAM and guess what? It is still crashing,

It crashes less often now but sometimes while playing Hearthstone or League of Legends i get a black screen and the only way out of that is restarting the pc. The only thing i haven't changed is the HDD but i run tests and there doesn't seem to be any problems with it. A friend told me it could be my power source and that maybe a UPS could help me stabilize it.

It's not a problem with the drivers because i've had this problem for months now and i installed a fresh copy of Win 7.

HDD can still be broken even if software tells it fine

On the other hand it could be many things like a program you have running in the backgound thats broken

Have you swapped out video cables? Maybe its your monitor switching into sleep for no reason.

I just installed a fresh version of Windows 7 without installing any programs except for LoL, Hearthstone and Core Temp.

I haven't done that but it's not the monitor going into sleep because the whole system crashes not just the monitor.

Might be a longshot but try and change the power cord to the PSU

Also, check the SATA cables...I know you got all new hardware, but a SATA cable that's on it's way out, or has been bend over too far, can sometimes cause random issues. Whatever it is, sounds like a nightmare if you have replaced everything but the HDD. Any way you can put an OS on a Live-USB or something? That would eliminate the possibility of cables or the only component not yet replaced, the HDD.

EDIT - And on the topic of cables...are you re-using any cable extension/adapters or anything that have been a constant in this build since it started acting up? I once used a cheap 7V molex adapter to run a fan, and it failed, causing random crashes and reboots...took ages to narrow it down to that specific cable adapter. Same thing though, used it through a couple different builds, and was tough to figure out, at the time.

Does the audio continues after it crashes or audio also just hangs and does the hard drive keeps spinning or stops? and the HDD led?
Sounds more like a power problem though . Which psu were you using before the CORSAIR CMPSU-1000HX in your sig.?

and yeah if you're using the same power cable try swapping that too like Shilka said.

Yes the audio continues after it crashes sometimes...i thought my PSU was the problem so i RMA'd it and they sent me a brand new PSU same model. I've changed the cable but that doesnt help.
