Hi, lately ive been getting random BSOD's aswell as random moments of extremely 'low framerate' that seem to be entirely random. I could be performing relatively 'low intensity' tasks and they will happen and not happen when running alot. I am completely oblivious to the cause and system restoring, uninstalling programs etc.. has had no effect thus far.

Go to Start then to Search
Type in compmgmt.msc and click Enter
On the left side click on Disk Management
On the right side you will see your hard drive.
Now I need you to take an expanded screenshot and attach it to your next reply.

Download Speedfan 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.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.

(this is a screenshot from a vista machine)

To capture and post a screenshot;

Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row..right hand side..now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing... BE SURE TO SAVE IT AS A .JPG ...otherwise it may be to big to upload... then after typing in any response you have... click on browse...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on the upload button...then on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

Depending on the results we may need to run further software for comparison http://www.cpuid.com.../hwmonitor.html

Screenshot instructions are provided to assist those that may read this topic but are not yet aware of the “how to”.

Things of note are high CPU usage, incomplete voltage readings, odd temp readings and low free storage space on the HDD, please see my canned text below, can you run HWMonitor for us so that we have a comparison to Speedfan, I suggest that if you don`t uninstall Speedfan right away that you uncheck the Auto fan speed box http://www.cpuid.com.../hwmonitor.html

Please note that you must always have a minimum of between 15 and 20% of a HDDs overall storage capacity available as free space or you risk the data on the drive becoming corrupt or in a worst case scenario mechanical failure of the HDD itself.
The above can render a computer inoperable if the HDD concerned has the OS on it due to the MBR (Master Boot Record) becoming damaged/corrupt, please see information @ http://pcsupport.abo...sterbootrec.htm

Thanks for the update harritan :thumbsup:

There is just the high AUX temp reading looking untoward in HWMonitor and that could be an anomalous reading caused by the MBs own monitoring software, we can double check later, did you uncheck the Auto fan speed control box or uninstall Speedfan.

Good idea to free up space on the HDD right away, be sure to use any uninstallers provided for any relevant program as this helps avoid stray files being left, post back when you are done and I will provide details to help you tidy and free up further space on the HDD.

Hello harritan

How has the computer been behaving since you have cleared some space on the HDD.

Hi,

Over the last couple of days i had no crashes, although a few moments where the PC dropped to an extremely low "framerate" for about a minute before it started running normally again (did not restart).

I just turned the PC on however and after about 15 minutes it froze and restarted itself however.
