seagate hdds larger than 2tb
evga gtx 970
samsung 840 evo ssd
intel series 520 ssd
razr hex mouse
i think thats it for drivers
have you checked from things like registry errors? Dont actually know to many people who blue screen often.
where would i do that ?
i suppose i could go run ccleaner and its registry part
Anything as simple as that could help, also have you tried googleing the error you get at the BSOD
I'd try and resolve the reason for the BSOD first. If you have a simple error to correct then why go through all the BS. Also, the issue could be hardware, if so a wipe would be a complete waste if time. Notate all the codes you are getting and figure it out.
thats a good start yea,
i tend to just wipe out my windows once a year anyhow tho
but since i built this system i havnt in a long time now
it seems the longer that windows sits there the more it will eat itself
ccleaner registry only listed missing links and stuff like that , not many issues, just hit fix all
one issue ive had forever seems to be
if i open my computer page
where you see all your drives and whatnot,
on the left side of the screen there are all of the shortcuts
just for refference thats the page, not the pop open menu,
but on that page,
if i try to select a drive with left click it opens up that drive in that window, just like normal,
but if i RIGHT click a drive on that screen then explorer immediately crashes then reboots.
i can right click my libraries or my dropbox folder or the recent tab,
but if i right click any hdd or ssd it borks
Why are all your drives full, especially your OS drive? Windows doesn't like that. Also, do you ever do any maintenance like deleting your %temp% folder or going into msconfig (great tool BTW) and preventing all the useless programs from auto starting? None of what I just mentioned would likely fix a BSOD, but occasional maintenance like that means no more wipe and reinstall.
Also, my personal preference is to keep all my folders on my desktop so backing up a computer I own is as simple as copying the folders there.
just showing that screen i was talking about
i couldnt even get that pop out menu, as when i right click explorer crashes
also, in my first post, i said im running a windows 7 system
i do manage my startup programs, although there are still a million of em it seems.
ccleaner wipes out my temp files and whatnot
i run spybot2 every night
