    Non stop BSOD in last 48 hours. Is it my new webcam? HDD?


    In less than 48 hours I experienced over 5 BSOD. I was shocked I couldn’t believe I had a blue screen first of all. I AM FURIOUS for one, but I seriously hope is not hardware, hoping it's new updates or such.

    Recent things I have installed are Python tool for VisualStudio. I also installed drivers for my new webcam Microsoft Cinema 720P. Those are the two major new things. I also noticed a few weird errors in eventviewer. The latest ones are large amount of errors from “Service ControlManager”. I get a warning when it comes to ESENT - EVENT ID:399 - Database Page Cache. With this verbose description “SearchIndexer(5100) Windows: The database page read from the file "F:\Temp Files\IndexData\Search\Data\Applications\Windows\Windows.edb" at offset 98304(0x0000000000018000) (database page 2 (0x2)) for 32768 (0x00008000) bytes failed verification. Bit 254245 was corrupted and has been corrected. This problem is likely due to faulty hardware and may continue. Transient failures such as these can be a precursor to acatastrophic failure in the storage subsystem containing this file. Please contact your hardware vendor forfurther assistance diagnosing the problem.” This error has occurred at leastonce every reboot..... my hard drive is dying isn't? Which one?


    Internet Explorer, Spotify are two of my main applications that have stop working properly and crash.
    Please advise on how to proceed, my pc is flat lining…it’s dying L
    Temperatures are all well under 45C.
    If you need more dump files let me know I get one every20-40 minutes.
    Also thank god for MS Word Autosave! Also copying and pasting from word did not format properly...

    Hello everyone!
    I figured it out, the last 5 days I been testing my RAM. It turns out one of my RAM sticks went bad. Tried the same stick in every memory slot still got errors. Anyways it had lifetime warranty so they sent me another one, while I sent my broken one to them in mail. Total of $3.00 maybe a little less from mailing. Also I got more RAM! 24GB's of RAM now. I tested all the ram slots, all the memory separate and together everything is running fine as of now. Also testing RAM at 24GB is tedious I can't believe it can take over 3 hours just for one pass.
