Bsod, Kernel Stack Input Error

  1. Hi

    When I try to use winrar to unrar a compressed file or something like that, it appears de blue screen and I hear the sound of the hard disk powering down I think (it's the same noise that the hard drive makes when I turn off my computer)

    This problem started few days ago when I installed Jdownloader but I don't thing that the problem is related to it.

    History: a year ago I got 2 hard drives in raid 1 mode and they failed but the disks are ok. I think that failed the motherboard's raid controller or disk controller. I've got the same mother with a diferent hard disk for a year ago.

    Please help!

    thanks

    Sounds like a memory problem... Test the system memory

    Problem solved

    Hi Tmagic

    I opened the computer to check if everything was fine and I detected a loose cable.
    It was the red cable (+5V) of the hard disk's power cable.
    I've replaced it and so far it didn't happen again

    Thanks for the assistance
