Hey, So as the title says I occasionally get the BSOD on start up. It gets as far as the "loading windows" screen with the glowing windows icon and then crashes, flashing the blue screen briefly then reboots and starts fine or will do it again. This appears to be totally random and used to only happened before after a windows update (exact same scenario, started up fine after reboot and loaded the updates...)
I'm completely unsure of whats causing it, I just now after the last crash turned off reboot on system failure.
BTW this is a brand new build I just finished a week ago.
Here's my system
when the system posts look to see what rev the mb bios is at. (f7) if it that one or higher then the mb has the newest ram code in the bios. check that the ram is in the right ram slots and seated. then i run cpu-z and make sure the mb set the speed and ram timing right if it has then i run memtest to see if i had bad stick of ram.
That particular tab is what memory is in your computer and at what speeds the lanes are working at. Each tab talks about different aspects of your PC.
As for the blue screens that are random, Has anything else been loaded onto it besides Windows? Take some of the memory out (not sure how many sticks you have) to only leave one stick in and run it again. Create a memtest86 disk (will provide instructions below) and run several passes on each memory stick to help isolate it as a possibility.
I would recommend creating a Hirens Boot CD and utilize some of the options available to attempt to resolve your issue. There are some really good diagnostic utilities available here. Use them to your advantage.
