The problem is my PC gets a lot of BSODs usually to do with memory violation.
This occurs when i play a video on 720p+ or play a game with too many effects or the audio driver gets too worked up if a loud explosion of sounds occurs. I fixed that for the most part by turning off virtual surround.
But the problem 0c still exists.
I tried switching the RAM, i tried memcheck, i tried sfc scannow, tried manually updating all my drivers.
I've reinstalled my PC 5 times because of this. Works fine for about a week and then same problems.
I'm not overclocking. Not running any suspicious apps. Not running any games that are too demanding.
The BSODs either reboot my PC instantly completely skipping the memory dump, or they freeze on memory dump and my speakers buzz.
This has been occurring ever since i upgraded my hardware. Even though i checked and even sent it to 2 different tech support services, nobody has found anything wrong yet.
Mb: MSI MS-7519 (upgraded from a Gigabyte 2 years ago. New Mb is compatible with the hardware but it's performance rating is a "tree trunk" as one website put it)
RAM: 5GB RAM (upgraded from 2GB. ATM it's 4GB, i removed 1 RAM for debugging. Config is 2x1GB + 1x2GB for 4GB and 3x1GB + 1x2GB for 5GB)
OS: Win7 Ult 64bit 6.1v build 7601
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 630GT 4GB (upgraded from GT 8000)
My usual reinstall process:
1) Insert bootable USB
2) Complete wipe of all data
3) install Win7 Ult
4) Download MSE antivirus
5) Do 3-4 days of Windows updates
6) Download basic programs like WinRAR, PowerISO, Notepad++, Firefox from Ninite or the official app website
7) Install gaming apps such as: Steam, Hamachi, Razer Cortex (for games with FPS issues), Tunngle.
8) Install games
9) Install CCleaner and Malwatebytes to do a complete scan after everything is installed (scan for viruses/malware/junk files)
PC Runs great for about a month. Starts deteriorating afterwards, getting slower, crashing on most games or videos. I even had to Disable windows updates because it started using 99% of my CPU and 70% of RAM.
I thought it was getting overheated (which sometimes it was during the summer) so i added an extra cooler and changed the old ones including the CPU one, now it's just as cool in the summer as it is in the winter.
I do run an occasional Defragment and Cleanup every 3 months. While i sleep.
I am planning on getting a completely new PC from scratch. But while i save up the money, i want to at least figure out what went wrong with this one. Learn from mistakes.
