Well, I have my new pc ( custom ) and it's been running fine for a few days. Until today. I don't know what happened but the screen just became static for a second and windows then shut down. I have windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I restarted it, and instead of 6 cores, it showed 5 cores. I used it for another 30 mins, then it happened again. This time, it went into system repair on startup. It worked and I used it, for ANOTHER 30 mins. Then, *sigh* it happened once more. After that, it wouldn't start up at all. The fans were spinning and LED's lit up, but the monitor remained blank. Only after I pressed the RESET button on my motherboard. It was fine, and I thought the problem was gone.
I was wrong. It was fine for a whole 2 hours, but it crashed again. So, what the HECK is wrong with my pc? It burned a hole through my pocket, so don't tell me that it's screwed. Is my BIOS corrupted? ( I dont know what that means, my friend just told me ) IS my CMOS battery faulty? Or could it be someting I downloaded onto my pc? PLease help. :s
MOtherbOard= Crosshair Formula IV
Processor= AMD Phenom II
Graphics Card= HD RADEON 6950
Casing= HAF 912
PSU= Coolermaster Cool'n'Quiet 730
I really hope it aint a hardware issue, 'cos i'd be screwed. Well, a lot's happened over the past few days. It stopped for a while, then came back and it repeated. Now with a constant blue screen with error,s MEMORY_MANAGEMENT and BAD_POOL_HEADER, those are the ones i manage to see. And worse, one core is down, again! Previously, a restart would bring it back, but now, no.
It's getting worse. No temperature problems so far. Have yet to check RAM with memtest. I can tell the core isn't down, but the thread ( whatever that means ).
I can send u the CPU-ID report if u want. Pls help
Ok, this pc is a bundle of problems. Not selling it, but will restoring everything and installing drivers from scratch help? I may have done goofed in the beginning with some stuff I shouldn't have messed with.. (BIOS) now im getting some 'bad bios checksum starting bios recovery' errors. pls advice.
