I built a HTPC a few months back and have been having some problems with unexpected shut downs. It has been happening since I built the rig. The symptoms are these:
It is more likely to happen a few minutes after starting up the computer. This will happen many times in a row, until it can make it through whatever "it" is and it will stay on for days after.
It also crashes randomly. It can crash at any point in time.
I'm not positive, but it may happen more when Windows Media Center is on, but I'm pretty sure it has crashed with it off as well.
The bugcheck code is usually the same every time and is listed below.
THINGS I TRIED:
Memory test. I ran memtest 86 for a few days with no errors
Hard drive test. I ran windows HD repair and I ran some test from BIOS which I can't remember the name. No errors
I unplugged the DVD drive for a week. The error happened equally as often
CPU stress test passed.
THINGS I WILL TRY:
Unplug my tv tuner. I don't know if this could cause it, but its worth a shot.
Re-sit all SATA cables and PCI slots. I figure I should do this but if the tests passed which used the same cables I don't see how this could help. Its worth a shot anyway
My rig is shown below along with the bugcheck details. Any suggestions will be much appreciated. Thank you.
