Ok Artellos I'll borrow some PSU to test if its failing. Here's another thing that I just found out, I used harddisk diagnostic tool from seagate, It came from a boot cd Ultimate Boot CD v4.1.1.Then I used "SeaTools for DOS (Seagate/Maxtor)" then I chose the option "short test" and guess what? it failed. It suggested me to choose the "Long Test" and it found a lot of erros on it and when it reached 8% the test just failed again. Can you guys determine if the BSOD error message is cause by a bad hard disk drive? I just dont get it 4 years without a single problem on my PC but now it seems like it's already going down. I'll post the result of the PSU swapping on my next reply. Tnx to all the people who have been giving me some help. Tnx again ^_^

mash potato,

If you don't have any useful advice, please don't post. People are here looking for help. You keep advising system recoveries - if it's indeed a hardware problem, such as a failing PSU or hard drive, this won't resolve anything.
