I have been having some problems on my PC that I built probably a couple of years ago and have not had anything this major happen to it until now. First I'll post my PC specs from Speccy
Essentially, the other day my PC basically just froze, came up with a very quick BDOS which I couldn't read and then proceeded to restart. However, once it restarted, I would receive this screen:
I then switched off my PC at this point, waited a couple of minutes, and then turned it back on. It prompted me with the usual options of running in safe mode and starting windows normally, which I did. Then I could get back into Windows fine. The problem being, this cycle just repeats. After about 30 minutes of usage, my PC freezes with BSOD.
So then I reformatted Windows assuming a clean install would fix the problem, but alas the problem is still there. I've tried reformatting twice in fact with no luck.
In terms of my Hard drives, I install Windows 7 on my SSD and all other programs and have a separate WD 1.0tb HDD for file storage. So at the moment, only Windows is installed on the SSD.
I've tried using BlueScreenView to view BSOD dumps, but nothing ever shows up in there and I can't see any MiniDump folder or memory.dmp files in the Windows folder. I then changed settings so that my PC doesn't restart after crashing so I could take a photo of the BSOD which is this:
The thing is, I'm positive the previous BSOD's were a lot more detailed than this one. Anyway, my initial thought is a hardware issue with my SSD, but I could be wrong.
EDIT: After I turned off my PC, it was installing Windows updates and then I received this BSOD after a while which I think is what I was getting previously:
I also ran sfc /scannow which found no errors:
So if anyone has an ideas, they would be much appreciated.
