 Hey everyone. I seem to have encountered a problem but I can't pinpoint exactly where it's coming from. It all started when I got a BSOD watching a video on my computer. This started to happen frequently (every couple of days). I pinned it on my very old graphics card and settled for just waiting it out seeing as I was gonna buy a new graphics card eventually. Once I set it up, the problem persisted and got worse, so I don't think it's a graphics problem. BSOD's got more frequent, where I can't even watch a 30 minute video anymore because my computer would either: hang completely (sound stops, desktop dissapears, can't open anything, can't close anything, windows start dissapearing and glitching and I have to eventually turn off the computer because I can't interact at all with my system) or get a BSOD.

 

 Sometimes I get no error on the blue screen. The one I got a few times was KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR. A quick google search pointed the culprit towards either faulty HDD or RAM. I ran the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool and it came up with no errors. I ran chkdsk a few times (well, every time I got a BSOD it would run automatically), but it didn't solve the problem. I downloaded CrystalDiskInfo and got a big yellow "Caution" popup. Something wrong with the Current Pending Sector Count. I'm getting 200 and I guess that's not normal, although I don't know how to fix it or even if that's what's causing everything.

 

 I've tried recreating the problem. Sometimes it's random. I'm browsing the internet and suddenly I can't reach a webpage, it takes forever to load, windows start dissapearing and I can't hear anything. Something that happens consistently is that I'm hearing music and the music gets to one point and it jumps about a minute back, gets to the same point and repeats. This is when my computer hangs and I can't do anything but wait it out. Eventually the music goes past that point (and fast forwards a lot) and the system is back to normal. The hanging/BSOD almost always happens after watching a video for long enough (twitch stream, youtube, etc). Usually about fifteen to twenty minutes. I'm leaning towards a HDD problem, or maybe even a CPU problem but I wouldn't know. I'm also noticing that in a lot of games I play I'm getting frame lag. Constantly. It's timed. Happens every couple of seconds depending on the game. It happens in most games, and that never used to happened before. Shouldn't be happening now that I have a new GPU, either.

 

 My system specs are the following:

  • AMD Phenom II x6 1055t Processor
  • ASUS GTX 760 Ti Graphics Card
  • 2x4 GB DD3 Kingston Memory
  • Gigabyte GA-880GM-USB3 Motherboard
  • 1TB Hard Drive
  • Windows 7 Ultimate Edition

 Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this. I really appreciate it.

Create a backup plan immediately then post the hard drive brand next time please. If Windows is unbootable due to corrupt or bad sectors, use a Puppy Linux (how to create) bootable disc to proceed with the data recovery. Note : To recover data, see move to page 2 or click this link.

It looks like it was a hard drive issue. It gave up and died and I haven't been able to boot up from it. I've since gotten a new hard drive and done a clean install of windows on it. I'm not getting any blue screens of death any more, or any crashes, but I seem to still have an issue with frame lag in games. Like I mentioned before, in every game I play (that I re-downloaded now and used to work just fine before this problem appeared), I get slight lag every couple of seconds. Specifically, everything stops for 1/4th of a second then goes on. This happens repeatedly every five seconds. So, for example, I can't steady my aim in an FPS game because I'm moving my cursor to the right and when that stop occurs, my aim ends up way farther than what I expected. Or, well, it's just an annoying lag in any other game. I think it might be a CPU problem? I've since underclocked my CPU back to 2.8 Ghz (I had overclocked it to 3.5 Ghz as soon as I bought it two years ago) in hopes it might be a heating issue. But I'm not sure where this problem could be coming from.
