    I wonder if this information is useful …Windows BSOD analysis

    I get to use loads of 3D and CAD software FoC while i’m at uni. The licences last only one academic year, so I have to go and get a copy every time, and as-if that wasn’t enough some of the software requires patches of a few GB every few months….

    My PC hasn’t been re-installed for a couple of years, and when I was dialing in my overclock I crashed it too many times and Windows is messed up. It’s not bothered me because I’ve been using this Chromebook in the last few months.

    Bit of a pain yeah, but can’t be bad having free access to expensive s/w, especially CAD stuff.

    Managed to reinstall fresh copy of W7 Pro 64bit (using one of the genuine images here) this morning. Currently trying to figure out what drivers to install, particularly the Radeon 6870 as naturally that and other bits of hardware aren’t yet being recognised.

    Not crashing now, eh?

    Must have been something incompatible.

    It wasn’t really a crash – more a corrupt boot sequence. Like you said on Mon, I reckon CCleaner triggered something.

    Quite liberating having to start from scratch though – forces one to declutter all the sh1t that keeps accumulating.

    I had to help a guy once, his machine was slow as a dog because he was out of hard drive space. We deleted things left, right and center. We emptied the bins, we cleaned the temp files we even trawled for duplicate mp3s.

    Some considerable time later I found a 50GB porn stash which he’d forgotten about and buried.

    Problem solved…..

    Yeah!!! I hope you have copied it to external drive for pleasuring later on … 😆

    Mine was two anti software clashing with each other then I made it worst perhaps by using CCleaner to clean out the registry … 🙂

    My system is now fine for the last 10 days only a minor Firefox clash today due to SearchIndexer error … but no BSOD. Keeping my fingers crossed. I hate to see the line in the graph from View Reliability History drops as it was beginning to go to the peak … 😡

    he was out of hard drive space

    I think this also contributed to my issue as I’d been running around 5Gb free on a 60Gb SSD for about a year. Can’t be helped as most production files have to be on C:

    How can you forget about that much pron? Unless you have multiple stashes across multiple HDDs!

    CCleaner to clean out the registry

    Always a risk doing that, but I’ve not had a problem with CC for years. Might be looking elsewhere this time though.

    With my old XP laptop I used CC to clean out everything in registry as well. Not a single glitch. But with Win7 … hmmm … I am not touching the registry at the moment until I have my back up system running.

    back up system

    Todo Easus is pretty good, even the free version. I used it a lot but really need to get it scheduling.

    Will look into that later on as I am using SynToy for data backup but not backing up the OS yet since the system has just got stable for the last 10 days.

    I looked at SynToy but a quick Google showed people losing files.

    TE works for me, especially the sequential backup that allows me to go back through time to find a specific file version if necessary.

    My graphics card has just keeled over, 3 weeks before I go back to uni.

    Spent the whole of Sunday reformatting the PC – sorting out several GB of files, installed the drivers and it’s straight back into “Black screen whenever I feel like it land”.

    Cockles.
