okay, a long one.


so. about 2 weeks ago, my pc suddenly BSOD'd.

upon reboot, it went straight to a system recovery, which i left running for 2 days, and 0 results.

so, i try formatting, and reinstalling windows, but after 3 hours, i wasnt even 5 percent done. 

i first thought my HDD was dead.

got a new HDD. reinstall windows, thought i was done. 


past week, my PC had more BSOD's than ever, so i tried looking at different problems. tried memtest (first time and stuff) 

this is where it gets weirder, memtest showed 0GB DDR3 ram. which is correct, since i have 8GB DDR4 (1x8GB)

but it shows no errors. 

and this morning, it BSODs again. (while running firefox)

reboot... i check configpanel, and it shows me CPU not detected, and ram not detected.

once again a BSOD and now its back at the system recovery...


by now, i have 0 clue whats up, and how to fix this. 


looking for someone who does.



MB asus mainboard b150m-c

CPU intel core i5-6400 2.70 Ghz


GPU GeForce 70 GTX

Have you tried reseating your CPU and RAM?

Have you tried reseating your CPU and RAM?

ram, yes. multiple times.

CPU, no, due to the lack of paste
