Hi John,

I remember the last time you had an issue, we questioned the GPU temperature being somewhat high. We ultimately concluded that it was an acceptable temp for that graphics card. You were not having any graphics symptoms either as I recall. It turned out to be a power supply issue.

Now you are having "vertical blue lines running on most of the screen." GPU temp 70 C. You could remove the tower side cover and blow a fan at the GPU as a test.

See if you can keep the computer running long enough in normal Windows to collect some data. If unable, zip up and attach the minidump files at least.

1. ) Please follow this link: BSOD Posting Instructions Windows 8 - Windows 7 - Vista.
  • Follow all instructions with the exception of:
    • Create a new thread HERE and attach the file(s) after step 4
  • Note: Both files of Step 1 need to be in the Documents folder.
2. ) Upload the zipped folder to a File Sharing website of your choosing because Bleeping Computer has a 512 K only upload limit and this file will be much larger.

Regards,
Brooks

Hi Artrooks -
I have checked with NVIDIA (via their forum, and employees) and was told that my 256MB GeForce 8500 GT is OK at that temp.
The PSU was replaced once but with no changes.

Even though it is high, it has been the same (+ or - 7C) during normal operations, since it was first installed.

Going is slow, as I lost all data during another freeze earlier, and forced reboot - Trying again.

Posting on my Win7 while I wait for XP to re-gain normal mode. Safe mode can still produce a freeze, but I want results in Normal mode -

Thank You -

As I went to upload the BOX media, it said the site, or at least my account was currently "Under Repair"
I will try and use another media, but I will need to re-run jc_Griff again - This XP is very slow at the moment -

OH Wellll -
I think that what I have listed is about all I can get for now .............

The XP will now freeze after a few minutes regardless of what basics I try at the moment, so I need to go to look at hardware now.
I cannot even run most tests without a freeze after 2 or 3 minutes, and even in safe mode it will not last long.

Regards -

John,

The motherboard voltages look good as does the SMART data for the hard drive.

Remove any unneccesary attached peripherals (printer, ext drives), CD's, memory cards, if you haven't already.

Test RAM (one chip at a time):
Take both RAM modules out, blow canned air to clean the slots and put only one module back, then start it up. Repeat with the other module if it continues to freeze/blue screen.

While inside, give a good look at the capacitors on the motherboard for bulging or leaking. Remove, then reseat the graphics card.

Regards,
Brooks

OK -
Those will be my extra jobs for today - Just after 7AM local time, so once I get going I will start these -

I can (at times) run it for about 10 to 15 minutes, but I need to go Safe mode with networking (or just Safe mode).

Once it starts or attempts Normal mode I still get what I think is PSU or other similar errors (dots on the screen and dark lines).
It will often freeze soon after starting in Normal mode, and it has rebooted, or shut down more than once while I tested it a few times.

Thanks mate - Will post back a bit later (could be a while) -

Hi -
Fully cleaned etc, and the problem is worse. It will not boot fully at all. I even checked BIOS settings, but it did not change.
I now get a message to insert a bootable device, and now it will not even boot from a recovery CD I had made.

At times the screen is just blank but everything is operating, as in all power / lights / fans etc as normal, but no output.
Other times I get a screen but it is "dotted" around the opening page prior to Windows starting, and never gets to start Windows.

Might be time for another desktop unit -

Check the cables to the hard drive and CDROM as you may have loosened them when inside.

Do you have an old graphics card that you could swap in as a test? Try a different monitor?

Yes, I spent quite a bit of time on these 2 cables, but the best result was like my original problem.

I do have an old (smaller) graphics from the last "problem XP", and the upgrade was due to similar problems.
I found an old monitor, so I will try and clean it up and plug it in later today - Not a good day for testing with the temperature back up to 40C today :wacko:
We will see how things are in my "cool shed" when I get time -

Thanks -

:P I saw the World Weather early today, and noticed you had snow etc.
We had a cyclone or 2 on the West coast, but dry, hot, and very dangerous bushfires on the East coast - Go figure that one .........

:devil: Someone is playing with the weather all over the place - It should be back below 30C in a day or so -
