  1. After much troubleshooting, and with the help of our fellow forum members, I've determined the culprit to be the following: 1) Corrupt Video Drivers (I had to resolve it using the most thorough method of using driver sweeper and do a fresh reinstall of drivers) 2) Bad Memory Stick (I tested my old ram sticks, and swapped in another set, the new set hasn't crashed since I installed it yesterday) I did note that my motherboard seem to go through memory stick alot, 4 years and 3 sets fried, but I rather just keep getting new ram sticks until I could afford building another new system. And BSOD information proved useless in my circumstance, because it pointed to everywhere, however, it still gave me some clues to deduct from.
  2. here are the symptoms: 1) I get bsod spontaneously, it could be a few minute into usage or couple hours into usage, sometimes a whole day before it crashes. 2) I get a different error every time i get a bsod, its either from bad video drivers, bad usb ports, bad memory and bunch of other random reasons as suggested by dump files. 3) The above only happened very recently, the computer was rock solid for months. what i've done to find out the cause: 1) I used driver verifier to check my drivers, they appear fine but I reinstalled my video driver anyway. 2) I used windows memory diagnostic to test the ram, they appear fine (note: I did go through THREE PAIRS of ram on this computer, they seem to go bad every once in a while, this one I bought earlier this year). 3) I checked out the PSU, which according to Speedfan is running two of the three +5V rails at 6.85V,while all other voltages are within 10% tolerances. Is this a cause for concern? 4) I checked my hardware cooling, they are fine, no over heating according to Speedfan. 5) I used disc check on my main hard drive, it appears there is no corruption or bad sectors. my specs: AMD Phenom II X4 980 CPU Asus M4A785TD-M-EVO Mobo 16gb Corsair Vengeance Ram 1TB Hitachi 3GB Sata HDD (Dual drive format for dual booting Win7 and WinXP) + a 2TB WD Black 3GB Sata HDD + 3TB WD Blue 6GB Sata HDD + 1TB WD Green (External HDD) AMD 7970 HD GPU Asus Xonar DX SPU OCZ 700Watt Modular PSU my question: can bad psu cause random bsod? I've yet to be able to resolve this matter...
  3. I did exactly just that, reinstalled windows and everything is back to normal, although one partition of a slave drive is also corrupt, I suspect that was caused by the controller failure during defragmentation at the very beginning... anyway thanks ya'll for the advices!
  4. Trying the disk diagnostic right now with the long test...awaiting resultsbtw this isnt the only issue, I also have another Sata drive that cannot be initialized in the same computer, but is recognized in bios... UPDATE: long test on hard drive earned a PASS, so it doesnt seem like hard drive is the issue. I am baffled...is it possible that the motherboard itself is dying???I even tried bios reset and replugging the hard drive connectors... UPDATE2: I was able to log into windows after disabling my SATA controller, keeping only IDE controller on in bios. Could a bad SATA controller been causing these hiatus all along? time for a new PCI controller??? UPDATE3:Now its upon reboot it won't even show windows xp logo, it just gives Error 0x07B...This is hopeless, time for this 8 year old computer to meet the junkyard...
  5. So I did a repair install, and the problem did not go away, it now gives the 0x24 error with some other addresses. So I am currently running chkdsk /r again...
  6. that didn't seem to work, still giving me the same error after windows logo. Here's the detail of the error: STOP:0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xB95C5B6C, 0xB95C5868, 0xB9D698D6) Nfts.sys - Address B9D698D6 base at B9D58000, DateStamp 48025be5
  7. So I booted up my old windows xp computer last night to check if it still works. Everything seemed fine until I started defragging the hard drives (I have 5 drives on it with 6 partitions, two of which is IDE, rest is SATA). The computer hanged a bit during defrag, then two drives just disappeared. Turns out the Sata controller that was hooked up with the two missing drives somehow crashed during the defragmentation. So I stopped the defrag and restarted the pc instead. It didnt show up until after unplugging and replugging some sata cables, the sata controller came back to life, all drives are detected in bios post. However this time around I cannot get into Windows XP, it would just reboot everytime after the windows xp logo. So I tried booting with the F8 option of preventing it from reboot when there's an error. Voila, a BSOD came up showing me I have the Error 0x24 involving ntfs.sys...This can't be good news right...so I tried going to safe mode, it doesnt work...tried going to recovery console...which didn't work until I ran chkdsk once from a bootable cd. Now I am able to get to recovery console but still can't get into windows xp. The interesting thing is that the windows xp is installed on an IDE drive, I doubt the sata controller hiccup that occurred just before could've affected it. So I need help with this problem, how can I boot into windows xp again? I ran Chkdsk once and was able to get into recovery console, but still couldn't get on windows xp. The hard drives are readable from my "linux on cd" so I doubt the hardware is kaput...if it is repairable without reinstallation, I am willing to try it...
  8. Vice city was pretty awesome, they should've remade it! Instead of GTA5 being in LA again...
  9. so what happens now that the deadline has passed, where do i continue to observe the war? lol
  10. having done 2 rounds of testing, AMD sucks at these math and logic benches, but really not noticeable in real world performance :-/
  11. i got mine in, but the 3Dmark03 was being pita, installed, reinstalled, patched, unpatched, its not letting me make public of result, so i took screenshot of the score page. I see some people running only the 3D test, i ran default test, that ok?
  12. thanks for the tips, so i reinstalled the 3dmark03 with the latest ver 3.6.2 1901 build (tried without and with the patch) and upon submitting the result to internet, it still doesnt let me make public.
  13. AMDX1325 Stock Score. EDITED. AMD PhenomII X4 965 Asus M4A785TD-M-Evo Corsair XMS DDR3 1333 2x2gb XFX ATi Radeon 5770 1gb Air Cooled running Win7...kinda slow. wPrime - 43.026 http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/2486/wprime.png SuperPi - 20.296 http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/4365/superpie.png GeekBench - 6392 http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/view/218282 3Dmark05 - 22021 http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm05=5144151 3Dmark03 - 48117 (it won't let me make public so i put up snapshot) http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/3156/3dm03s.png according the calculator...the score is 311,501 with no bonus for oc (stock) And Sorry for the small picture, your going to have use the browser zoom in to see.., i tried like forever but can't figure out how to upload full res to imageshack, it always keep one full scaled and other upload downscaled..
  14. update: when i woke up this morning i found this screen on my computer, a BSOD indicating: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA STOP: 0×00000050 (0xCD3DD628, 0×00000001, 0×804EFC9A, 0×00000000) let me also say this would happen overnight, rarely happen when i was using it during the day, i can think of a few things to determine what caused it, mem stick (DDR3 so dunno about their reliability), Bigfoot Killer Network card or a program that i had running called Flashget3...
