guys iam having serious pc issues,and before i format my drives and reinstall windows as the last resort i thought i would try this forum.I will try to give you as much info as i possibly can.
Ok the problem is iam getting is random shutdowns then bsod, sometimes after 10 min or even as windows is booting,since i have a dual boot os with a xp on one drive and win7 on another on a few occasions the boot choice screen didnt appear either it just hung and i had to power off manually.It doesnt matter if i try to boot xp or win 7 the same thing happens.
Here are some pc specs if it helps.
2x2.2 intel processor
2x2 gig ram
1 ide drive winxp
1 sata drive win7
sappire radeon ati 5770 graphics card
This is what i have tried so far.
using some spares i have,
taken out the graphics card and used the onboard one
disconnected every usb device
tried each separate hdd
changed motherboard batt
checked drives for viruses
done this but still having the same random reboot problems,iam beginning to wonder if its motherboard issue, but not being tech minded when it comes to this point iam really shooting in the dark.
If anyone has anymore suggestions i would welcome your thoughts because as the title says i ve tried everything.
It could just be software
Try these guys..
Windows 7 Forums
Have you tried upgrading and flashing the bios to see if anything happens there?
Your temperature on your device is OK?
I would tend to think the fault is more hardware than software due to the crashes happening in both Win7 & XP. As you have swapped/removed most of the hardware it is starting to look most likely to be down to the motherboard - but have you tried just one stick of RAM, and in different slots?
What is the BSOD 'Stop: 0x00......' error you get? This can often help to narrow down the cause. If you don't get to see the error before the PC reboots then try - control panel > system > advanced system settings > startup and recovery settings > untick 'auto restart' box.
Might also be worth running WhoCrashed to see if that can identify the cause of the crashes.
Try just running the W7 HD to simplify things. Then you can use the W7 diagnostics to track down the fault.
guys thanks for the replys iam off work for few days next week,i will def give those suggestions a go and keep you posted.both temps on idle look ok around 32-34 btw.
yep marks right,had a guy check it out,motherboard s faulty,time for an upgrade anyway,
thanks for everyone's input on this.
rule out software altogether by reinstalling windows (remember to back up). using "cleaning" or "management" sw is only a half measure.
oops, should have read last post.....
