I formatted and installed back windows 7 x64 on my computer. In the process I changed the GC from an HD4870 to a 560 Ti. The rest is X4 955 BE, 4 Go of DDR3, a 1To SpinPoint, on a gigabyte MA790XT-UD4P.
I installed ESET 5 and then Adobe CS5.5 with Magic Bullet plugin which wasn't working very well. I realized The computer wasn't connected to the web and didn't make any update. I set to change that. By the time were finished, it crashed twice (BSOD).
Today I had another crash and the computer is fully updated.
I'm really depressed about it as I was excite to start working on editing and compositing comfortably. I formatted to start with because my setup was becoming unstable and BSODing very often even when idle.
Any thoughts ?
Does this man the problem is hardware ? Did I do something wrong when formattingand somehow imported the issue ? Can it be BIOS related even if Idon't remember messing too much with it ?
I think I did a memtest when I started having BSODs three to four months ago (I've been on holidays since) and I don't remember finding anything. I'll do another.
I also ran a virus scan on the hard drive I used to backup a few files (actually it's like 100Go of backup). But it it had infected my system, ESET would have been there so I'm just doing it for sport I guess.
I don't suppose I can edit on premiere while memtesting...
I just had another BSOD while typing this and running the virus scan on the external HD. The blue screen froze at 65% and I had to force it off.
I just had two or mores crashes during simple internet + youtube navigation and editing...
The PSU is the Antec 300 one, Earthwatts 500W. It's solid. Everything wasn't running fine before changing GPU, as mentionned before it's the fact that I was having random BSODs that led me to format in the first place.
