So i installed Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate. My computer keeps on randomly freezing or resetting itself or just crashing completely. I also got blue screened yesterday. I installed all the drivers. My comp runs at CPU temp: 45C and MOBO temp: 31C idle. I don't know if those temperatures are high or not?
Also i have a problem with the windows update thing when it automatically does it when you shut down. So when i shut down it updates and turns off. Then when i boot my computer on next time it configures the updates from before but fails everytime, so everytime i turn off my computer now it loops and installs the same stuff i think and then fails when booting up my comp.
I don't know whats wrong with my computer? is it software or my MOBO or Processor?
sorry i dont have a lot of info but thanks for the help
Sometimes you have to just pull it apart and rebuild it. You can look at it for hours and not see a small problem where if you rebuild you can go through the steps more methodically and try to solve it that way.
go into your bios and check the bios on the mb. the newest bios is rev 1.6 for your mb. if it 1.0 or 1.1 the first bios for the mb there been a few bug fixes. with windows update error. you have to turn off windows update and then clear out the windows update temp folder. anytime an update is damaged windows update is not smart to do and download a new copy from the web. the windows update is a service that has to be stopped. i would run memtest on your ram for any errors. i would also download and run hardware monitor and watch your cpu temps. one error that happens with stock coolers wit hplastic legs is that the legs dont get locked down so that the cpu cooler not tight to the cpu.
So my BIOS configuration is set to my SSD as option #1 and I dont have a HDD installed
My BIOS and all my drivers are up to date and both my RAM are working.
But however my Windows 7 i got from my friend which idk if he bootlegged or burned from the real disc. But he used it numerous times and hes never had problems with it.
Before like when it crashed or froze on me it was just when i was surfing the web. But i've already put my system thorugh playing DOTA2 on high settings and already used it for adobe premiere and it never crashed when i used it then.
Also what is an unsafe temp range for the CPU? Because when i play DOTA i got up to about 60C
Also for my case what is the best setup for airflow? i have one in the front that takes in air and i set the 2 on top and the one on the back(my most powerful one) to suck the air out?
Sounds like a bad install of Windows. Reinstall or get another disk. As for temps, 60C is getting on the warm/hot side. 70C+ too hot. Get an aftermarket cpu cooler. Coolermaster 212+ is cheap and very effective. 212+ with two 120mm fans dropped my phenom X6 over 10C. Now it idle's in the low 20's. As for the case my understanding is that more air going out is better for temps. Can that case take a 200mm fan?
Yes, it is almost a dead giveaway with 7 Ultimate, it is likely a bootlegged copy and can cause all sorts of problems, the least of which are OS related, the most of which will be security related. You will not receive help on illegal software here . Go buy yourself a copy of Windows and if you still have problems come on back.
