Blue screen just started to happen often

  1. I built a brand new computer around Christmas time this past year and everything has been working extremely well until recently. About 4 days ago my computer started to blue screen very frequently. 1 of the times I noticed (might be a coincidence) it happened on a loud sound like starting a game. Most of the times it happens randomly whether it be surfing the web or playing a very demanding games. Mostly it seems like the program that I am using stops responding followed by every other application one at a time over a period of about 10 seconds or so before it blue screens. Here is the information windows gave me along with my minidumps.

    Problem Event Name:BlueScreen
    OS Version:6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1

    Thank you for the reply.
    I should have stated I performed the memtest before and passed without errors and I just got done with the hard drive test which didn't give me any issues either.

    Are you over-clocking?

    No I am not

    Also, I just got done running my computer with only 1 of the 4 sticks of memory swapping it out with a different time and it BSOD on all of them even when I used a different memory slot. I don't think it should be a memory problem.

    Another update, I reinstalled windows thinking it would hopefully just be a software problem since I need this computer running for work. Still the same BSOD problem. Starting to get worried it would be a serious hardware issue.

    Could be a failing hard drive... are you running a Solid State drive?

    Yes, I am using a SSD. I have replaced all the Sata cables going from my hard drives to the motherboard and to my surprise I have not blue screened for 2 days now. I am thinking and hoping this has solved the issue.

    Good, hopefully you found the cause!
