troubleshooting my PC issues
Posted on 2013-11-08
I have a new system (about 6 wks old) that I built and I'm experiencing issue with it already. How can I eliminate various components as the source of the issues? I'm suspicious of my mobo as I had problems during original assembly but swapped out my P/S and then the system seemed to work ok. Until a couple of weeks ago.
Every so often my screen just goes blank as if it's going into screensaver, but then comes back. I'm using integrated graphics on my Asus -- no graphics card. Additionally, yesterday it just crashed and found invalid on SOMETHING, but I don't know where it found that. I have a Crucial 240GB SSD and a WD 2TB HD. Everything is new except the case and memory which seems fine.
How can I test if my Asus mobo is bad? How can test the other components?
When I rebooted it tried to search for a solution online but couldn't find one. It had these details:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.48
Locale ID: 1033
Additional information about the problem:
