First post here -- having some trouble with a brand new built computer. While I have basic computer knowledge, most of the stuff I have searched and read is over my head. If anyone can help lead me to a solution, I'd be most appreciative.

 

I recently had a new computer built for me, all new parts except keeping my old hard drive (plus adding a new one.) This is pretty much what was put together: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Hqzbf7

 

I'm running Windows 7, with a dual monitor display (the one in the link plus a Dell I already had.) I regularly get the "blue screen of death" - generally a few times per day, but with different error messages each time. I've gotten "change input timing...", "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL", "clock interrupt not received on secondary processor", etc. The machine also experiences occasional difficulty awaking from "sleep" and the CPU fan will frequently run very fast (4000+ RPMs).

 

I've installed all the drivers that came with the parts and checked for updates. I have Trend Micro anti-virus protection and System Mechanic Professional, and neither has found any hardware conflicts. I can't pinpoint a specific time these errors occur. I've gone a couple of days without any problems, and have had days with frequent issues. Otherwise everything runs great with the machine.

 

If anyone has any suggestions as to what the problem is, that would be awesome. Thanks!

Have you tried updating the drivers?  Drivers that ship with equipment can be six or more months old by the time you install the part.  I'd suggest starting with the video drivers.

If the PC is blue screening, it may have created a minidump file containing information as to what caused it.  Are you able to look at those?  BlueScreenView can help with this.  Sometimes, these files are a bit vague and understanding what is causing it on a programming level can be difficult.

I downloaded the program, and yes there are dump files that I can look at. But no, I don't understand them lol.
