    Random Computer Crash (BSOD)

    Hey guys

    Lately my computer randomly crashing into blue screen. Not once but three times it occurred in 4 days, so I"m very worried about my computer status. It happens so randomly.(It just happened minute ago before posted this)

    Is there a software that can direct me to find a cause of this random crash? or someone can advice me what to do?

    I recently installed Corsair H80i, but I don't think that has nothing to do with it. crash happened even before I installed it too.

    Here's my spec if anyone wants to know

    MSI P67A-GD65 B3
    Intel Core i5 2500K Quad Core 3.3GHz (4.2GHz)
    Mushkin Enhanced Silverline Stiletto 8GB 2X4GB
    MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr
    Western Digital Black 640GB Hard Drive (OS)
    Western Digital WD10EARS Caviar Green 1TB

    My guess is the OS hard drive, because it's been used for 4 or 5 years now.. lol.

    Thanks.

    I think it was saying my hardware was not improperly installed or something like that. that seemed impossible cause i made proper installations on everything.

    I'll get back on that

    by the way, does the blue screen shows different message when the computer crashes?

    find where your minidumps are and post them.
    (maybe C:\Windows?)

    or do it yourself:

    Re: Random Computer Crash (BSOD)

    Examining a dump file is usually the best way to pinpoint the issue. If you cannot locate a dump file, you can try some of these suggestions I have used for people when troubleshooting:

    BSODs are often caused by memory and hard disk issues. Start by re-seating your ram [ taking out and re-install it ]. If you still get BSODs, run a hard drive test. You can get this software from the drive manufacturers site. This will uncover any issues with the drive. Sometimes you may get your first BSOD from a random issue and it can corrupt some of your system files causing future BSODs. You can use [ SFC ] system file checker to verify windows system files [ Use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7 ]

    Let us know what you find.
