Why does PC work fine one day but BSOD the next day?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I put a new OC speed to my pc and it ran fine the entire day yesterday without any hitches i even played games on it. Then when i just turned it on today and was simply browsing on the net it BSOD. Attempts to restart windows a few times produced the same results. I thus turned down the OC speed a little and it works now.

I'm just curious why is my pc so unpredictable.

E8400 OC to 4.188ghz. 1066 rams 4 x 2GB at 1117mhz. BSOD.

I couldn't see the error msg it was so fast. Windows started up halfway and the blue screen shows up in a split sec and restarts again back to bios.

I lowered speed by a bit 4.14ghz and rams at 1108mhz and it runs fine now.

I'm just miffed why does it work one day and not the next day.

Well did you run any stability tests (ex: Prime 95, LinX/IntelBurnTest)?

disable bsod restarts in windows

Nope none at all. It played crysis warhead fine though.

Seems like my pc has a mind of its own to work one day and then not the next.

Maybe you should enter your specs so we can know what you are dealing with. This is what overclocking is about.. if you bsod then you got a wall and you'll need to bump back down and tweak some things to get a stable clock and run tests.

Just because it can run crysis fine doesn't mean it's stable.

Do a 24/hr test. I'm serious. You have much to learn about overclocking. Just because you clocked it without any Prime tests and etc doesn't mean it's an accurate stable clock. You need more further proof to make sure you don't get problems and i bet you will get it again.

But still why does it run fine yesterday playing games but hang today when net surfing?


Okay full specs

Mboard: DFI lanparty dk x48-t2rs

CPU: E8400 running at 460fsb now x9 = 4.14ghz.

Rams: team xtreme dark 1066 4 x 2GB running at 1108mhz

No divider used.

GPU: Sapphire 5970 OC version.

Do you need me to list my voltage settings? There's quite a long list.


It hung today on a slighter higher OC at 465fsb running at 4.188ghz.
