Recurring Blue Screen

  1. I would very much appreciate any guidance on my Blue Screen issue. As this is an older machine, I am tempted to dump it and start fresh, but I hate to give up and really hate the thought of re-loading all of my software.

    Attached are the error messages and a number of Minidump files from my daily (or so) Blue Screens. Windows reboots to a sign on screen when these happen. The details on this self-built PC are:

    Motherboard: ASUS M4A78T-E
    Bios 1503 6/5/09 (unsuccessfully attempted to update bios )
    AMD Phenom II x4 810 processor (I am not a gamer and have not tweaked the motherboard settings)
    16GB DDR3 RAM (recently replaced)
    Corsair CX430 power supply (2 years old)
    Using motherboard sound and graphics
    Only add in card is a USB 2.0 4 port card
    Windows 7 (fully up to date)

    Looks like the boot hard drive might be the trouble... A clean install might help here. Over time the data gets corrupt on the hard drive and it can't be cleaned properly without a format

    Hm..if the Windows recovery options are not working, the problem is rather in your hard drive and I`m afraid that it really has troubles. Do you have any alternatives to the existing hard drive?
