Ok, I was playing SimCity this morning when I suddenty got the BSoD referencing Memory Management as the problem. I figured it was just a fluke, so I restarted the machine. It got to the the Windows 7 loading screen and BSoD showed up again with a "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" message. Then it just refused to turn on. It would power up, but not even make it to the BIOS loading screen. Eventually I got it up into safe mode and scanned with MalwareBytes. That found 3 viruses (PUPs, looked to be on of those free cursor things my sister installed(, but when I restarted the computer after the scan, I got the BSoD again with an error message of "Driver has overrun a stack based buffer". Now it just refuses to get to the BIOS loading screen, like before. Although now, the MoBo just beeps once every few seconds. Does anyone know what could be the cause of this? I could see it being hardware, but considering how sporadic the problem is and how different the error messages are, I could see this being the viruses I found. Any help would be great.
Windows 7 Home Edition 64-bit
AMD Athalon processor (2.2 GHz)
8 Gb DDR3 RAM
Nvidia GTX 660 Ti GPU
Edit: I finally got it up long enough for MalwareBytes to run all the way and remove the infected files. Turns out it was a remnant of a virus that my brother removed months ago the just made itself known now (something called Fun Moods?). How do I ensure that this is fully removed from my system?
