For the last few months my system has been near unusable. It has near constant and unpredictable BSODs [DCP Watchdog, Critical Process Died], thousands of HDD CRC errors [On all four drives], and video card driver crashes.

I've tried the following:
New Motherboard
New Power supply
Ram check [Passed]
Minimal configuration [Main HDD, RAM, 1 monitor, 1 keyboard]
HDD [Passes smart test and symptoms still manifest on live media]

Any thoughts? This has been driving me up a wall.

Thank you

Tell us about the 4 HDD's - how are they being used/how are they setup?

What RAM check did you run?

Have you run diagnostics on the hard drives?  Here's a link to some:  http://www.carrona.org/hddiag.html

Does the system also have problems in Safe Mode?

 

Beyond that, let's try looking at these reports:

1)  Please provide this information (even though you may not be reporting BSOD's) so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum):  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/

2)  Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504

I was able to resolve the issue after looking at my voltages for a while.

 

The problem was my wireless card.  Every time the card transmitted data it would cause chaos over the sensors, so I suspect that there's probably a short somewhere on its board.

 

When I connected to a network during my monitoring [Which was previously at boot before I had the foresight to look into it] there was a voltage spike on my south-bridge and fluctuations throughout. The HDD activity was likely due to disconnections when the fluctuations fell out of tolerance and the BSOD messages variety was likely a result of this as well.

 

Thank you for replying usasma. Your instructions led me to checking my voltages, which uprooted the real problem.
