    Which computer component is causing my BSOD?


    I'm almost certain these BSODs are from hardware failure since a particular power fluctuation apparently broke the computer + windows has been reinstalled multiple times since.

    The BSODs happen at indefinite times-- sometimes during gaming, others when it's idle; and in indefinite numbers-- sometimes just once, sometimes several consecutively

    But for the most part the computer is still usable-- in fact I'm using it to post this now

    Hoping to hear at least some part of it is salvageable-- that I don't have to buy a whole new PC, you know? *cry

    cheers

    :)

    BSOD Hardware Caused???

    they do weird things like that, which all seem like something else is failing.
    One of the worst things to diagnose, they seem to only quit when they want to.

    Memtest is a good next step, if you rule out RAM and Power Supply make sure you disconnect all unnecessary peripherals and try to start the system with as little hardware as possible, if it works then, you can narrow down the culprit by trial and error.

    the follow was taken from some website:

    It's very difficult to determine if a failure is caused by the CPU because many other components can cause the same symptom when they fail.

    1. System fails to boot
    2. System re-boots intermittently
    3. General Protection Fault
    4. Illegal Operation
    5. Stop Error, or BSoD (Blue Screen OfDeath)

    Actually, CPUs rarely fail, and about the only way to determine if the CPU is causing the failure is to swap it out with a known working CPU of the same type and speed. Since this is difficult, the best bet is to first rule out every other possibility.

    Before suspecting the CPU, rule out all the possibilities listed below.

    1. The Operating System
    2. A peripheral port device
    3. A bad memory module
    4. The hard disk drive
    5. The power supply
    6. The motherboard

    If you have ruled out out all the other possibilities, investigate the items listed below.

    1. Overheating
    2. A short circuit
    3. ESD

    causes for bsod

    a friend of mine is getting bsod's everytime she uses her computer. it is usually at boot, but sometimes at the desktop, but the computer shows the bsod then goes back to normal and runs fine. I was wondering what exactly would cause a blue screen that would not crash the computer.
