    PC really messed up


    I don't know what has happened to my PC but today I got some error message saying Your PC encountered an error will restart so it restarts and says the same exact thing so I tried to reinstall windows 8.1 off the disk and it brings up the same exact error message and restarts.

    Also I built this myself so I can't send off to get fixed by Sony,Microsoft or whoever

    Hi there, HeyDontFall.

    I read your history here and it seems your problems are getting worse. I understand it's your own build about 4 months old? Is that correct?

    Please fill out your system specs or post them here so we may better help you.

    Have you made any changes to hardware or software lately?

    I joined here recently but I built this PC about year ago and since then upgraded the CPU to a 8320, added a 120GB SSD for Windows and Windows 8.1 from Windows 7 and today I did a system restore and upgraded to the new 14.2 drivers today from AMD but while I was playing a round of BF4 I got a Red Screen of death and that's when it all went downhill

    Now what does this most likely sound like? GPU,Ram or SSD? It loads the Windows 8.1 disk then it crashes

    I think it's hardware, but I'm not a BSOD analyst, but there are members here that are. You may want to post your problem here: BSOD Crashes and Debugging - Windows 8 Forums

    But first read this: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions then post.

    Also, again, it would help greatly to fill out your system specs or post them there.

    Here's a related thread you may want to look through.

    Good luck to you and welcome to the forum.

    HippsieGypsie is asking that you fully fill out you system specs that will show up in the lower left corner hot spot. You do it through the user CP. It will greatly help in attempting to help you. Things like motherboard, CPU and GPU, memory are important to know.

    Problem is I'm not getting Blue Screens and I can't get into Windows to get the minidump or whatever file is created when a BSOD happens

    Do you have install media or an image you made?

    My gut tells me it's a memory module, but we'll see. I take it you're a gamer? Do you overclock this thing?

    Good that you have the install media. You should be able to boot to the install disk for repairs. System Recovery Options - Boot to in Windows 8

    Did this thing run good with 7 on it? With the new CPU, SSD, and any other changes you may have performed?

    I'll ask you one more time to fill out or post your machine specs, otherwise I'll have to withdraw helping. It is frustrating for me and others to help by second guessing what you have. I hope you understand that.
