Hey guys, wondering if anyone can help me out here. Getting quite a few crashes & BSODs recently (past month or so). Crashes are mostly happening in browsers (firefox tabs & full program, chrome full program) but other program are crashing at random, too, although somewhat less often.
Windows 7 x64 system, quite old install, survived a couple of hardware migrations, the latest onto an nvme.
I really-really do not want to reinstall, it'd put a huge dent into my ability to work with all tools & settings lost.
I can't recall the exact source, in fact one of my big problems is a lack of a compatible repair CD! I think it was via the now extinct microsoft developer program whatever it was called.
The current hardware itself is less than a year old, it's currently not overclocked, although I did run some overclock on it without issues for a while. I had a recent bummer, where my cooler gave in, and the system overheated. I had to buy & install a crappy temporary cooler. This whole thing may have had something to do with this all, it has all started around that time. So there is a chance of a hardware error at the core, in fact I'm really hoping that's the issue; it's quite simple to fix (if I know which bit to replace, that is).
Corsair Carbide 600Q
ASUS Maximus 9 Hero
NZXT Kraken X62 cooler
G.Skill Trident Z 32GB (2x 16GB) DDR4 3200MHz
Samsung 960 Evo (nvme)
ZOTAC GTX 1080 TI AMP Extreme
Seasonic Prime 850W Titanium
I've already run memtest+ overnight. It did not seem to turn up anything. Will proceed with other tests as recommended.
Many thanks for any help in advance!
