New rig crashing (fixed) :)

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Managed to format and reinstall all is well! Thanks guys! I have dispersed rep!

I have no idea what to do or whats going on and really need help. I built my sig rig a few months ago and it has worked without a hitch up until a few days ago where it randomly crashed while installing Crysis. Ever since then I have had nothing but crashing problems it started with just crashing after quitting a game or running random software now its crashing durings windows start ups and directly after logging in. I finally got it to work for a few minutes and was able to play Counter Strike Source and listen to music but mid game it just crashed. After the crash windows says it has recovered from an area reason was blue screen .

I have did a system restore to a point before the install with no help. I can run the computer in safe mode with no problems but the crashing begins while running normally. I am guessing it is a hard drive failure but that doesn't make sense since it runs in safe mode. When windows does run normally it feels very sluggish and unresponsive but in game I get normal fps and performance.

What is the troubleshooting process for this??

Is it possible that OC is unstable?

Lose your OC and see if that stabilizes the PC. If it continues then your OS is likely corrupt and you'd have to repair or full reformat.

Could be gpu drivers as well. Games/3d performance not affected, 2d (windows) is sluggish, but works in safe mode. I'd try removing and re-installing graphics drivers before doing anything major.

Just my $0.02
