Hello, I've been experiencing this very frustrating problem.
When I turn on my PC, a few minutes (can be up to 30 minutes) my PC either freezes or freezes for a few seconds then BSoD comes up for around 5 seconds, then my PC restarts.
This only happens ONCE a day, and it's only the first time I start my PC every day.
I've seen this time again with faulty RAM. Perhaps you replaced it, or were inside your computer and a static shock touched the memory. Think back to anything significant that could have happened to your computer around the time these blue screens started.
I also suspect that the once a day symptom is not relevant, only a seeming coincidence. When RAM is faulty, all it takes is one address or bit to be bad and when something accesses it, it will make your computer cry like a baby and shut down. Since virtually everything accesses your RAM, anything could cause the shut down, even when you computer is idle.
1. Insert new CD
2. burn CD
3. keep CD in disk drive and restart
4. Don't press anything, Memtest should automatically boot itself. In case it doesn't, reset again and press any button or whatever the screen says to boot from CD.
5. Follow the instructions on the Memtest screen. It's been a while, but they''re straight forward. If you have trouble let us know.
Let us know the results!
Sorry for the long reply;
I tried doing the Memtest, burning the iso file using many different applications, and also different CDs.
What would happen when I boot from CD, it would just be a black screen. And it would stay there for a long time. Then it'll start the computer normally. Nothing would happen.
Yesterday, I cleaned my computer, and today, I haven't got BSoD.
As long as it's working. But I would feel better knowing what happened.
How did you clean it? Reinstallation of windows?
As for memtest, did you burn the file as an Image, specifically as an Image? Maybe it's something in BIOS, but at this point I would open a new thread about memtest, if you have the patience and desire.
Cleaning, as in I opened up the case, and brushed out the dust and that.
As for memtest, yes I did burn the file as an Image.
