quick help please..

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Can I assume after my q6600 overheated and was replaced that my vista install is corrupted? I've had a number of BSODs since testing the overheated one, maybe 40 or so BSODs since the last reformat...

Don't focus only on the CPU. Download and run memtest86 to ensure your RAM is ok. Alternatively you can boot from the Vista installation disc, as this has a memory testing facility too.

We can't help you any further until we know whether your RAM is causeing the problem or not.

If your RAM and CPU cache is fine memtest will be able to successfully make a couple of dozen passes. If the RAM turns out to be ok try running your system with your CPU at stock clocks. If you still end up getting BSOD's or crashes reinstall windows. If issues still occur after a fresh install and with your CPU at stock then you'll likely need to RMA the CPU.

Try the suggestions I've made and then post back with your results.

No, I'm using a NEW CPU. And I am BSODing at stock. It makes sense windows is corrupt, though after I nuke the drive, I am going to memtest before I install windows. It shouldn't be any hardware issues after isolating.

THANK YOU for confirming proper course of action!
