BSODs after formatting

Hello,

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 ?

Blue screens are normaly RAM or drivers. I would run memtest overnight.

+1 for anonymous1

I had a similar issue whereby Windows 7 BSOD'd randomly. I ran a memtest overnight and 2 RAM modules had errors on them. Once removed, the system was stable.

RAM was RMA'd and replaced. Sh*t happens when you least expect it to!

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.

Anything in the Event Viewer?

Many things. What should I be looking for ?

The 4 BSODs are there listed as critical and "kernel power" source.

And the rest ... (in French)

(I can't see the formatting options in the reply window in here other than Quote, Spoiler and Hide, weird).

Also, Windows just found out that he missed a few updates...
September 12, 2012 5:39:02 PM

You may need to look in the Application logs as well and try to pair the two together i.e. dates and time etc.....
Apologies as I'm scratching my head on this one as well.
September 12, 2012 5:50:48 PM

Nothing in the application log.

I would suspect the psu since the hd4870 is less enegry hungry than the 560 ti.

What is the PSU and how old is it ?

Everything worked fine before changing the GPU ?
September 12, 2012 9:54:24 PM

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.

Need to know the BSOD stop code to really help with BSOD diagnosis...Download/Run Bluescreenview and post a screenshot please.

Right now, without knowing what errors are being thrown, I'd suspect either the new GPU if faulty, bad RAM, or an inadequate PS.

In the short term, run memtest86 to check the RAM for errors.
September 14, 2012 3:12:56 PM

Here is a screenshot of the Bluscreen windows. Tee me if you need something more specific. I'll be running a memtest today/night.

For the RAM, I might have a friend who is willing to lend me his RAM to check.
September 14, 2012 6:57:38 PM

Lol, i didn't give you the link of the screenshot.... And I'm running the memtest so I can't get it back for a little while.

September 15, 2012 12:09:57 AM

Google the error code on the bsod and see what that says.
September 15, 2012 1:12:04 AM

9 passes so far on the memtest and no errors. How many more passes should I go for ?
September 15, 2012 9:29:16 AM

After 10 hours and 10 passes (0 errors), the computer shut down (I heard it going off). I tried to start it again and it was stuck at a black screen with a blinking slash.

I've just noticed an unconnected 4 pin. Might it be it ?
