I recently built a PC for my dad. I used a Phenom II x4 720 BE, 6 GB GSkill DDR2 800, 160 GB WD 7200 HDD, MSI 785GT E63 Mobo, and ASUS CD/DVD Burner drive.
We have been having errors with it randomly restarting and crashing to a blue screen. Even after when I try to reformat back as recommended it still crashes and wont finish. I have Cleared CMOS like I read and didn't help. I updated BIOS to current and windows updates are current. My mom wrote down some of the errors since I was out, now it seems fine but we wanna find out if it happens again what happened and how to fix it. The error read...
Windows 7 users can simply click on the "Windows Start Button" and then go to the "Run" link. Once run pops up type in "CMD" and hit enter which will cause the MS DOS prompt to appear. Type in "CHKDSK /r" which will check for hard disk errors. Vista users need to click on "Start" then go to "Accessories" followed by "System Tools" and then run the MSDOS program followed by "CHKDSK /r"
Insert your restore CD if errors are found and not fixed by the check disk function listed above. Turn your computer off and then back on. You'll be asked to hit any button to boot from your CD; press any key. You will then be asked if you want to install a fresh version of your OS or "Repair" a current copy. Choose the "Repair" option and allow the computer to go through the necessary steps.
After the repair function has run, turn your computer off and then back on. Wait and see if the computer shuts down again. If it does not shut down, your computer's restore function has fixed the file, which was probably caused by a bad system file.
In additional to this there could be Virus issue of some power supply malfunctioning.
PSU highly unlikely, virus, maybe but never heard of that happening, but download MalWareBytes(free, mbam.exe) and run it, have you ever cleaned the reistry I use EFRC(Eusung Free Registy Cleaner, it's free, and I never had a problem with it http://www.eusing.com/free_registry_cleaner/registry_cl...
