Can't seem to pinpoint my BSOD problem.

Hi guys, I've had trouble with BSOD on this machine for a while now yesterday i finally got enough money to be able to upgrade some parts in the hope that it would rid me of this frustrating problem but instead it has just made me even more frustrated.

I've gone through multiple testing problems for my ram/HDD's/GPU and so far they've said these components are working fine. I bought a new MB, PSU, CPU and ram yesterday (I wanted to upgrade anyway) but the BSOD's still occur. There isn't a real pattern to them, like i can play a game for an hour or so and nothing, then load up something small or just stay on the desktop and, bam, BSOD. Sometimes it will happen throughout playing a game too, though. So yeah, no real pattern to it.

My specs are:

Win 7 64bit ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 AMD FX-6300 Six Core CPU 3.5GHz AMD Radeon 6770 4GB DDR3 1333MHz XFX Pro XXX Edition 650w PSU Seagate 1TB HDD Seagate 500GB HDD

Unfortunately I don't know any of the information i get when the blue screen comes up but next time it happens I'll try to catch a picture.

Cheers in advance for any help. :) -Ben

Some other ideas:

Try a clean boot - instructions here

Try running in safe mode.

Download a Linux distro such as Ubuntu or Mint, burn the ISO to dvd, boot from the DVD but DONT install but run in "try" mode.

BSODS are usually hardware or driver related. As you have replaced most of your hardware then it suggests a windows driver. Running Linux will prove that either way.

From what you say you have replaced the MB, PSU, CPU and memory this leave your graphics card and your two HD's.

Apart from overheating, random BSOD can be caused by corrupt files or a HD about to fail.

Have you done a full scan of both hard drives?

Did you do a clean install after you replaced most of your computer?

Cheers for the reply's guys. Unfortunately I don't have any blank CD's and won't be able to get any anytime soon as I've spent all my money on the new hardware. I also checked both HDD's with CHKDSK and vmt, both showed no errors. Oh yeah, i forgot to mention that I did a clean install of Win 7 and updated all my drivers. I shall try a clean boot and then if the problem persists I'll take my GPU out and see if the problem goes away.

Thanks again guys!

Okay, so i just tried my PC in safe mode and got a BSOD, then tried a clean boot, BSOD and then tried without my GPU and again, BSOD. Also, i managed to catch a line from the blue screen which read 'DriverIRQLNotLessor_Equal'.

BlueScreenView doesn't come up with anything (I'm probably using it wrong, I'm not too great with the Software side of things). In the event viewer I'm getting alot of Event ID: 41 Kernel Power though, if that helps.

Managed to get 2 dump files on bluescreenview for you guys, hope they help!

looks like this is your problem

  SetToDestroy 20:45 27 Feb 14

Thanks Fruit Bat, just un-installed that update. I'll comment back tomorrow to say whether it's fixed my problem or not. :)

If that doesn't work just try running with your C drive. Check connection on mobo as regards Sata and the drive. If ok try connecting back the other drive. Could be a crappy Sata cable.

  SetToDestroy 22:13 27 Feb 14

Just tried 4 different SATA cables and still got a BSOD. All cables and hardware is properly seated. I've gone through a ton of different guides but nothing seems to be working. I'd be pulling my hair out at the moment if i had any. Haha.

When checking connection, ensure none have a bent or missing pin. I would also check the cpu.
