Recently my computer has started to suffer from frequent BSODs.
When I try to install something (World of Warcraft to be specific) it will crash to the BSOD. At first I thought it might be a file on the discs themselves, but it's very random. It can crash on the first disc, or on the fifth disc. It also crashes to a BSOD without fail every time I try to start up Team Fortress 2. The thing is I've installed WoW just fine before and played TF2 every day until it started to crash. I haven't installed anything new or changed anything.
Here's the problem - I can't do anything about it.
If I run a virus scan - BSOD.
Every time I try to defrag - BSOD.
Disk Cleaner - BSOD
Heck, I just tried a system restore and guess what - BSOD.
I booted up into Safe Mode but the problem still persists. I've tried to run chkdsk but it freezes whilst doing it.
There has to be a file somewhere that's causing this problem. The problem is, any time the computer so much as glances in its direction it crashes to the BSOD.
The error code is:
(Doesn't actually say Parameter, I just know those don't matter as much so didn't copy them down).
Process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated.
STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, Parameter2, Parameter3, Parameter4)
I tried reseating the HDD (it's a S-ATA), and I've ran MemTest 86 which didn't report any errors.
The motherboard is an Asus K8V-X. If you need to know any other specs just say.
If there is anything else I could do - upload a HJT log or minidump just let me know. The way it is though I can't see anything but a complete re-format helping here.
Thanks for reading.
