    So I recently had a problem with my computer. Things started to slowly stop being powered. Replaced my power supply...everything works! YAY! But then after about 30 minutes of being on my computer the screen goes black and I get a blue crash dump screen. Ok that's cool! So the computer shuts down. I boot it back up and once everything is loaded I run a malware and virus scan....full scan. It managed to get through the whole check and it said nothing was found. That was awesome...but then my computer did the whole black screen, blue crash dump screen and the shut down....again :( . So I started to check things. My power supply obviously works and my graphics card runs. I checked my fan speeds/temps and nothing seemed to be overheating or getting to the point of it being close to overheating. So please help me before I throw my computer out of my 3rd story window :)

    Oh by the way I built my computer back in March. This is what I have in it...and it runs Windows 7 64bit.

    Have you updated your graphic drivers?

    First can download the BSOD Dump & System File Collection app (exe file) - save it to your DOCUMENTS folder- here is the link:
    Right click on the EXE file icon, select "Run as Administrator"
    The small cmd/DOS screen will appear with status information and other windows will open & close..

    When finished click start > run > and type: perfmon /report (hit enter)
    A viewer will appear- Click on "File" and "Save As" an HTML file
    Windows Explorer will open to your Documents folder. Zip up the entire Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 folder & the PERFMON HTML file then attach to a zip file and post it here.

    Run chkdsk. Do that BEFORE scanning for malware or attempting to fix anything.
