    Getting frequent BSOD's on startup, and also during gaming


    This is a genuine Windows 8 Pro 64bit.

    CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz | GPU: Radeon HD 7970 Vortex 2| Mobo: Asus P8Z77-V LX | RAM: Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz

    I have been having this problem since I was on Windows 7 also.

    I have attached the folder as requested.

    Thanks.

    Please do the following:

    open up an administrative command prompt and issue the following commands:

    Code:
    sfc /scannow
    once the sfc finishes then run this command
    Code:
    chkdsk /f /r
    the second command will ask that you reboot

    lastly please run through the HD diagnostic procedure:

    Sorry for my late reply.

    sfc /scannow found and successfully repaired corrupted files and chkdsk took quite some time to complete and I was not present when it completed, so I am not sure if that did anything. I am still getting the Blue Screen every time I boot however.

    I will try the HDD diagnostic next.

    Keep us posted, it sounds like you may have a failing drive.

    Failing hard drive, do you think that could explain this other issue I'm having?

    Sometimes when booting it will go up to where it says 'press del to enter BIOS' and suddenly shut down, then boot up again. And it can keep doing that several times before it boots into Windows, however some times it will only do it once, and sometimes not at all.

    That would be so typical because I was planning on buying a new HDD dedicated to Linux, now I may have to just replace this one.

    It might be but then It might not we will have to wait for the HD diagnostics.
