    I'll post a standard procedure for testing again, but this time ensure that you post screenshots/logs

    Read carefully before proceeding.

    Run Prime95 and/or IntelBurnTest to stress test your CPU. Prime95 - Stress Test Your CPU - Windows 10 Forums & CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest - Windows 7 Help Forums

    warning   Warning
    Your CPU temperatures will rise quickly while under this stress test. Keep a keen eye on them and abort the test if overheating occurs.

    Make a photo of the result and post it.



    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note

    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

    Make a photo of the result and post it please.

    If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
    If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.

    Hello. I'm working on the tests. Not sure about the timing for the CPU test so I plan on about 12h, even though it's gone 1.5 without any issue or even exceeding 50c. That's judging by what I've seen on forums etc. Moving to other tests after this one.

    Sorry for the late response, been on the move for a while and just settled back down.

    Alright, Here are the results for everything but MemTest, as I seem to have lost my free USB stick.

    Starting with CPU stress test. This was left on for roughly 12 hours straight.

    Next Is GPU. Was left on with the required settings for 30 min.
    I was present for ~20 min, and there were no artifacts whatsoever.

    As there were multiple HDD tests and I have multiple drives, the individual
    tests can be found in proceeding posts. The below screenshots are of the
    SeaTools tests that include data for both drives.

    One more thing. Looking back I realized you had asked me to upload a current zip containing collected system information and for some reason I never did that. So here it is.

    Please follow option TWO of the tutorial for chkdsk as requested, run following command on each partition in an admin command prompt.
    chkdsk C: /r
    This is just an example, change the letter C to the letter of the partitions.

    Well this is great. Got stuck at 11% for about an hour on C: then restarted automatically. Upon restart, I got a BSOD. Then it tried to diagnose and repair and finally ended on a screen saying the only thing to do is restore an old version. Why would this happen? Power was never interrupted, and I never touched the computer durring the operation. Does this mean it is the drive? I noticed both drives running around 50c, but I didn't think that was too hot.... What now?
