    Attachment 74081

    Hi there! So about half a year ago, my dad decided to give me the money to build my own PC. So I bought all the parts and my dad and his friend put it together for me (I'm terrible with handling hardware).
    It works great! It runs games really well, is really fast, and all that nonsense. (at least compared to the old laptops I used to use)
    Here are the parts I used for this.
    Except I always have an error of some kind every single day. Usually it's just the Windows 10 "blue screen" with the sad smiley face with the accompanying error message but sometimes I get random stuff happen after booting up. These are always minor things that never heavily affect anything, and always get fixed with a quick reset, but I still worry that this isn't something that should be happening and I want to see if there's something wrong with something and if I should get it fixed before it gets worse.

    I've tried reformatting my computer, because my sister berated me when I asked if its because the hardware wasn't put together properly, telling me I probably just downloaded something suspicious, but I still get the errors.

    It was suggested that it was probably my RAM, and I was instructed to run memtest, but it did not bring up any errors. Here's a picture of my memtest screen after 8 passes.

    Obviously I attached the ZIP file from the little instructions thinger, but I decided to write down and include each error message and other non-BSOD errors I got in the past week and a bit just in case.

    By manually reset I mean I have to actually press the restart button on my PC, since it usually resets itself.
    FAULTY_HARDWARE_CORRUPTED_PAGE (had to manually reset)
    Got an error but didn't turn on the monitor quick enough to see it. It shut down the computer instead of restarting.
    Everything seems fine but when I attempt to start Mumble I get a "The remote procedure call failed." error message, followed by "The stub received bad data." when I attempted to open the program again. The program works the third time.
    MEMORY_MANAGEMENT (about 2 seconds after loading in the desktop, had to manually reset)
    CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED (In the middle of a game, was quite surprised since it rarely happens but it did. Had to manually restart.)
    No error message but it soft reset (as in I never heard the computer stop going) a little bit after the blue windows logo
    It came to the little login screen with my name but the background was a plain blue colour and it kept flashing and spazzing between that login screen and the screen that shows the time and a pretty background when the computer is woken up from sleep mode but also with a plain blue background. Then got a CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED message and had to manually restart.
    Stuff seems fine but Google Chrome was lagging and hanging a bit. I turned the computer off and went out, came back an hour later to find the computer still running but with a black screen. Had to manually reset.
    "The handle is invalid" at the login screen (note my account doesn't have a password set). I clicked OK, then just pressed enter and it loaded the desktop. When I went to set up my internet connection which I have to do so most times with weird Uni internet it actually asked if if I wanted to allow the "Network Connections" app to make changes to my PC. I hit no and then went yo restart the PC then got hit with the CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED blue screen error. Had to manually restart.
    Everything works fine except when I try to open up a picture the picture viewer gets an error (which I unfortunately forgot to write down) and blacks out with the windows bar also blacking out for half a minute before the windows bar resetting and the picture viewer closing returning to normal (none of my other open programs were affected)
    SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (had to manually restart)
    7/4 Morning
    It seemed to boot into the desktop fine, I left the room to go to the toilet before doing anything and came back to find that it was rebooting.
    Reset itself after the blue windows logo.
    CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED a little bit after loading into desktop. Had to manually reset.

    Let me know if there's more information I should be including! Thanks very much!

    Recently built computer and getting lots of BSOD (Windows 10)

    I built my computer about a week and a half ago and have been getting many errors since. These include BSOD (Many different ones), game crashes, and graphics card crashes. I have no idea what is causing all the problems and would appreciate any help to resolve
    the issues. Below are my specs as well as a screenshot of all the bluescreens that BlueScreenView pulled up.

    Processor - Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz

    GPU - AMD Radeon (TM) R9 390 Series

    Memory - 16 GB

    Motherboard - Asus Z170-AR


    Please let me know if I need to post anything else Custom built computer gets lots of BSODs on startup :)

    Custom built computer gets lots of BSODs on startup

    So many various different bugchecks are there. And there is no such a failing driver, as far as I have checked.

    Make it sure that the system is not overclocked. Set all the hardware components like CPU, RAM and graphics card to its stock clock speed.

    Make it sure that the SSD is having the latest firmware. Samsung SSD Downloads | Samsung SSD

    As it is a z97 series motherboard, use its full benefits. Perform a clean windows installation as UEFI mode, not as Legacy BIOS.

    If still the BSODs continue to occur, be sure that the hardware is really failing. You already made it sure that the RAM is not failing.

    Stress test the CPU. Prime95 - Stress Test Your CPU It saves the result as a .txt file in the prime95's folder. Upload the file for us.

    If it also comes free from errors, RMA the motherboard.
  5. Hi! Thanks for the reply!

    I never overclocked my computer so I wasn't sure how to actually check that it's all at stock, but I went to the motherboard's little BIOS setup menu and all the overclock settings there are just set to [Auto] which I assume is its stock speed.

    Didn't even realise SSD had firmware. I updated it! I still have the blue screen though, which leads to this:

    How do I do this? I tried looking it up but it's so complicated. is there a more newbie-friendly guide?
