had no idea that msconfig to get to safemode was not good. ive always used that method.

i didnt have any problems when my pci card was unplugged. i plugged the pci card back in (with 2 500gb seagate drives connected) and unplugged the "H" drive my 1.5tb seagate.

so far. running without issues. not sure how to create load. i was playing a long youtube video

It alters the boot.ini file. It is a permanent change., until you go back msconfig and uncheck safe boot. Whereas F8 Advanced Boot Options Safe Mode is only for the one boot.
All explained by Happyrock. on his post.

machine BSOD'd again. The good news is that I "thought" my H drive was my 1.5tb, but it actually isnt.

I unplugged my newest drive, a 500gb maxtor drive and am playing AVIs. see how it goes

I would start looking at the suggestion from Happyrock

1.Is the date when the problems started, tied to the addition of a drive or drives.

2. What is the wattage of the PSU and more to the point perhaps - what voltages are shown on the 12v 5v and 3.3v rails

3. What temps are recorded -

4. Cleaning of CPU fins, fans etc.

Run Speedfan
Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard.
  • It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
  • Now go to Start and then to All Programs
  • Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
  • In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
  • Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
  • Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
  • Attach it to your next reply

In view of this there is ONLY one course of action I can now recommend and that is that you have the computer examined by a malware expert to ensure you have a clean bill of health. It is best to do that before we continue to try and establish the cause of any problems that are not caused by infection.
Please follow carefully the advice in this link.
http://www.geekstogo...cleaning-guide/
If you do post in the malware forum would you please add a link to this thread so that the advisor can easily follow what has been done to date.
Please be patient as they are very busy in the Malware forum.


The Speedfan report, appears to raise the question as to why it finds three fans and only reports that one is working.
You have a fan on the CPU, I would have expected it to register the speed of that one and any case fans. Additionally whilst it does not report any apparent temp concerns, some of the readings are very strange eg. 1C
