The temperature is still steady: around 40C if idle and between 50 and 60C if running applications.
I ran the two tests and neither of them reported any problems. There were no bad sectors or other errors on the hard disk and the memory test said that the test passed.
I did have a new kind of blue screen crash during the first memory test when the computer rebooted to start the test.
I am wondering what the possible problem(s) and how I should act further. These might be the conclusions based on your posts:
- The temperature of the CPU might be a bit high, but it is not as high that the heat could explain BSOD's.
- There is no sign of serious malware or virus infections that could have affected the pc.
- There is no sign of serious corruption of the (Windows) system files.
- There is no sign of other hardware problems.
What should I do? Is there a chance that a clean WIndows install would help? Or should I test the hardware further so that I can find a potential hardware problem?
I really appreciate your help and the advice that you have given and I do not want to keep you busy endlessly.
