New to Tech spot here, heard this might a good place to find answers. Sort of computer savy but not engineer smart if you know what I mean. I have read numerous BSOD threads and most of the solutions that applied to me I have done...for instance: I have replaced hard drive, had mother board and memory (RAM) replaced. Here is what I am dealing with: Brand new Emachine T3304, right out the gate kept getting BSOD. Did memtest, no errors. Did what I mentioned above, kept getting BSOD. But the strangest one was when I rebooted in Safe Mode, I got BSOD even then! Does not stop there. I did a full system recovery, reinstalled Windows XP, did not even install drivers or any devices and first time it boots up, got BSOD. The only thing that I can point out is that there is a loud ticking/clicking sound coming from hard drive which I was told is a sign of a bad HD. Also, some BSOD comes with no errors, some come with the thread "page fault in nonpaged area", but not always. Somebody please help...any suggestions are most welcome!
