SO my system specs are:

Intel Q9400
Asus P5Q pro
4 gigs Gskill DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ ram
EVGA 896-P3-1260-AR GeForce GTX 260
CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-620HX
Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EACS 1TB
Running Windows 7 Pro

My system became really unstable alittle while ago and i haven't been able to really try and address it until recently. BAsically getting my system to start up into windows has become a nightmare. I believe it's a hardware problem but it could be windows and if you guys think i should move the question to that forum i'll do that.

When i start up my computer, the system posts and starts going through the process for starting up, but will crash and start the whole boot up process over into a never ending cycle of fail. The crash occurs at different times. I've seen it happen while going through some of the various bios postings, other times its when windows starts trying to load and other times its 3 minutes after windows login. A blue screen does show up and i've had various different errors come back. I lost the sheet i wrote some of the errors down on but i've had IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL as well as a USB_BUG_CODE BSOD.

So far i've run memtest - no errors, did a disk check when the system wasn't being so bad with both the western digital utility and microsofts chckdisk - no errors or issues. I have repaired but not yet tried re-installed windows. I also downloaded some virus utilities and scanned and there was nothing significant that came back. I'm not sure what i should do for my next step and would like some suggestions on narrowing down the problem.

Should i just reinstall windows and see what happens? If that doesn't work, all that seems like there is left to test is my psu and my motherboard. If i need to test those parts is the most painless way to just buy a psu and plug it in to see what happens? I dont have a lot of extra money right now to just throw around on parts to test and i dont have a friend to borrow from.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi,
My name is Debbie.

As correctly said by KBIT, follow those steps in BIOS and I would further suggest you to run full HARDWARE DIAGNOSTICS on your computer and check for any error codes.

If you don’t get any error code, then remove the power cord from your Computer and disconnect any third party component attached to this system, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the Computer. This clears your RAM and is like hardware reset.
After this Boot your computer in "safe mode". See if your computer works normal in safe mode.

For further assistance please reply

So my computer just turned on fine for no reasons, ( i haven't had a chance to try the usb disable yet) i dont really know how to explain it. It still feels kind of unstable though so i'm not going to chalk this one up as being done. Any suggestions on how to do a full hardware diagnostics? I've run the individual programs such as memtest and chckdisk but i dont know what i use to check parts like my motherboard or processor. Google hasn't returned much in the way of results. also, anything i should check while i have my desktop on and "working"?

go to device manager and check that everything appears normal.{no exclamation marks} your problem lies in usb."USB_BUG_CODE BSOD".

unplug all usb and double check for damage to connectors and cords on both devices and computer.{trying to force usb in for example} a small short can really kill your computer {rare} as most times the computer will reset the usb. i had a short with a controller once and it fried all the inputs on motherboard {rare} so i know it can happen. it might just be a faulty device like a mouse or keyboard and nothing might be wrong with your computer per se. that's what i would try first. good luck

So i got more BSOD today. MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER, and IRQ_NOT_LESS_THAN

I had disconnected all by my keyboard from the usb ports. I checked the keyboard usb connector and didn't notice anything weird about it. No singe marks or bent pins. I've connected it to different ports each time to test it out.

One of the BSOD occured while i was in safemode with networking. I read somewhere that Avast! my antivirus program sometimes contributes to the BSOD problem so i was downloading a alternative to test when it went BSOD on me.

That being said, i also booted into safe mode successfully after clearing the power. restarted the computer, and now the computer loaded up just fine......

any other suggestions on what to do here?

Took me a while to get the computer on to run the programs. Had to pop out a stick or ram which sometimes seems to work for some reasons even though memtest says the ram is good.

Here is the BSOD info. Minitoolbox seems to be taking a long time getting the information. It keeps flashing the Getting Application Errors: 32239. Is that normal? If it get the info from it i'll post it up later.

... i've run memtest - no errors ...

Let's make sure that the memory checks out OK before looking elsewhere. I realise that you have already done some memory testing, but we need a result that we can rely on to some extent, so please use memtest86+ and run it for 24 hours minimum.

Test the memory (RAM).
  • Run memtest86+ for a minimum of 24 hours for a reliable result if no errors are reported before-hand.
Memory needs to be tested outside of Windows, so memtest86+ is run from a bootable CD.

:step1: To make a bootable CD with memtest86+:
  • Extract the downloaded zip file:
    • Right-click on the zip file and choose Extract all. (Windows XP ... other Windows versions may have different wording.)
      The contents of the zip file (the .ISO image file) will be extracted to a folder in the same location as your zip file.
  • Burn the .ISO image to CD: If you do not already have a suitable burning program for writing .ISO images to disc ...
    • Download and install ImgBurn.
    • Ensure that you UN-check the box agreeing to install the Ask toolbar during the installation.
    • Place a new (blank) CD disc in the drive tray.
    • Choose Write image file to disc.
    • Under Source, click on the Browse button: Navigate to and select the .ISO file that you wish to burn.
    • Place a check-mark in the box beside Verify.
  • Click Posted Image
  • When the CD has been burned and verified as successful, it will be bootable.

:step2: Boot from the newly created CD.
  • You may need to configure BIOS or the Boot Menu to boot first from the CD.
  • memtest86+ will begin running automatically: You need do nothing else at this time.
  • Allow memtest86+ to run un-interrupted.
See the screenshots in this informative link: Diagnose with Memtest86+

There MUST be NO errors what-so-ever:
  • If you see an error, stop the test.
  • Then proceed to test each stick of RAM separately to sort the good from the bad.
A minimum test for some confidence in the result, should be 7 full passes (each "pass" is a series of different types of tests), with NO errors.
  • Allow memtest86+ to run for 24 hours for maximum confidence in the test result.
memtest86+ will continue running until you stop it:
  • Press the <ESCAPE> key to re-boot the computer, removing the memtest86+ CD.

it could likely be a RAM issue, replace it with memory you know is good and see if that resolves it. This is what microsoft has to say about IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314063

I appreciate the suggestion guys but i ran memtest for 13 passes before i even posted the problem here. i've gone through the BSOD problems and the Ram has consistently come back as not being the problem. I'm looking for other suggestions on what to test or do in order to try and isolate what else the problem could be or what the problem isn't. Since the popping the ram out seems to help sometimes i wonder if its a motherboard issues rather than the ram itself.

At this point i am prepared to just replace the motherboard, processor and ram to get the computer running again. But i need to know that there are no other likely issues. Could it be the psu and if so, is the only way to test to swap it out. could it somehow and in some weird way be the GPU and how do i test. Is there a way to test if its the motherboard or CPU without swapping out? Should i just re-install windows to see if that fixes anything? I still cant get minitoolbox to work, is there anything i can do about that.

Additional weird issues popping up. it seems that sometimes when the computer wont start my motherboard gets reset. It seems to go back to defaults and i have to shut off the unused additional tools and i have to reset the date and time as well as boot priority.

It might be a good idea to test how hot you're CPU is running, as it is common for a PC to shut down when the CPU overheats to protect it from damage. You can use the program coretemp found here www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ to do that. If it is overheating, you should check the heatsink/fan assembly and make sure it is attached correctly.

... sometimes when the computer wont start my motherboard gets reset. It seems to go back to defaults and i have to shut off the unused additional tools and i have to reset the date and time as well as boot priority.

Prime suspect for resetting BIOS to defaults when the system is shut down is a flat CMOS battery.
  • If you have a voltmeter, check the voltage (new is 3.3V, but anything over 2.8V will usually still work OK).
    OR ...
  • Replace the battery with a new one (relatively cheap).
If that doesn't fix the issue, then check that the contacts with the battery are clean and firm ... and if that still doesn't fix the issue then the cause is more complicated.
  • I cannot help you since I have been facing the same issue on one of my old computers for some years now, and have no idea what causes the problem which over a long time period has been shown to be an intermittent one. I can only guess that it is a motherboard issue of some sort.
Some useful google results for replace cmos battery:
