During the critic error of Windows OS our computer restarts by itself or displays BSOD
( blue screen of death). This message contains line of numbers which can help with realizing what is wrong in our PC:0A
– operating memory modulus error – Try to check your memory cards with program named MEMTEST. Probably your RAM dice is broken. If you have more than one dice you should check each one of them. This is the way to eliminate working RAMs and find that broken one.
Did you add RAM to your PC ? That might be a problem. Dice may not be compatible with each other so try to remove one of them.0D
– CPU error – Such an error might be caused by CPU’s overheating or its damage.
Check out quality of CPU’s cooling system, try removing dust from ventilator and radiator.0E
– errors related neither to CPU nor to RAM – Check informations above.
When we know entrire line of error’s numbers we can look for it here : http:// search.microsoft.com/
Microsoft’s forums and google are full of information about such stuff.
A lot of users had same problems and got them solved!http://www.dashboardwidgets.com/showcase/data/57/BSOD-0p6b.png1. Hardware overclocking reasons :
a ) Overclocked CPU – unskilfully overclocked CPU causes our that PC is unstable, restarts by itself, displays BSODs.
b ) Overclocked graphic card – unskilful GFX Card overclocking may result in deformed display on our monitor, can also cause restars of our PC.
c ) Overclocked RAM – this may cause CRC problems, errors during copying on HDD, PC may also restars by itself.2. Non-overclocked hardware reasons :
a) PSU – power supply unit – A lot of people, while buying a PC, think about good CPU, GFX card, RAM but they forget about good PSU that can support such a machine.
Low PSU may not cope that PC and it will get ‘stoned’ or reset while working. It’s really important to buy only brand name PSUs because they will assure proper working of our PC.List of lower PSUs :
Bestec, Codegen, Colorsit, Feel, Procomp, Ropla, TakeMe, Tracer, Tronje, Q-Tec, Impet, Linkworld, Logic , Medion, Megabajt , Mercury, Modecom FEEL, Mustang.
Those PSU will support only slower PCs like those used in offices which don’t require such an amount of power.PSUs listed below will support stronger PCs used to play games and GFX works :
Aerocool, Akasa, Amacrox, Antec, BeQuiet, Chieftec, CoolerMaster, Corsair, Silver Power, SilverStone, Tacens, Tagan, ThermalTake, Topower, Yesico, Zalman, Enermax, Etasis, Gigabyte, Hiper, HuntKey, Modecom MC, Mushkin, NeoTEC, OCZ, Pentagram, Seasonicb ) Memory – like above, test it with MEMTEST program.
c ) CPU – probably it’s overheating – check the cooling system
d ) HDD – probably contains bad sectors – check disk with HD Tune
e) Wires and tapes – very often they are getting used by removing/ plugging in something into our PC. They can be simply replaced by new ones. 3. Viruses, spyware etc.
They can also cause a lot of problems on your Pc. Remember to always have an updated database of your antivirus program. You should use antispyware programs as well.
I recommend those : SpyBot Search and Destroy or Ad-Aware. 4. Drivers.
Remember to always download drivers from producers official download site.
Try to keep them updated, but sometimes, when you have problems with the newest version it’s highly recommended to use the older version which works fine with your hardware.
When you are changing drivers you should use Driver Cleaner which will erase trash left by previous driver on your PC. 5. Registry
It happens very often that something is missing in our registry or few entries are broken. I recommend you to use program Ccleaner which contains registry fixer.
Most important advice as for conslusion :If you havent found help in my guide try to search for it in www.google.com.
It doesnt bite and helps a lot!
