I did a teardown of my Windows 10 machine to clean all the parts and do some cable management and when I reassembled and restarted I had some issues. It started with a corrupted RAM BSOD, so I cleaned the connector pins on the RAM sticks with alcohol. Then I couldn't get a video output to my monitor...
Eventually I got it to work and boot, and made it to the start screen. Then the first BSOD happened, I don't remember the error code. It restarted, made it past post, then another. Then another, and another, and another...
I inserted my Windows 10 bootable USB drive and attempted to boot to it, nope. I cleared the CMOS on my ram, swapped ram stick positions, ran a memOK! test. The test came back OK!.
I unplugged the sata cable with my (one and only drive) SSD, booted to the USB drive and it worked. Reformatted, reinstalled, made it to start screen and... BSOD. Loop.
I know it seems like this could be a hardware issue, but all of this hardware was working fine before I did the teardown. I rechecked all of my work after I started getting this post-reassemble errors. Everything checks out.
I'm not really sure what to do, nor can I post a crash log due to the fact that I can't make it to the desktop, or if I can, I'm only there for a few seconds.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your time.
Some of the BSOD codes I've caught thus far:
Eventually I will get a RecEnv.exe - Application Error
The intrusction at 0x00007FFA718C4830 referenced memory at 0x000000000057. The memory could not be written.
Click on OK to terminate the program.
Updates: I've run a chkdsk through the command prompt found in troubleshooting tools in the USB Boot drive. Everything comes up green, though I do get a 'failed to transfer logged messages to the vent log with status 50' though I understand this to be normal when running a chkdsk from the troubleshooting place.
I'm becoming more convinced it is a hardware issue.
I've now attempted to run the system with one stick of RAM. Swapping the sticks and trying all variation of stick 1 and 2 in slot A and B one at a time. Blue screens are continuing.
With one combination I received error:
winlogon.exe - Application Error
The instruction at 0x00007FF9F65CDD3E referenced memory at 0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFF86. The memory could not be written.
Either both of my ram sticks are fried, though they do not appear damaged in any way, or it's my mother board. I don't know how this could've happened, as when I cleaned it I just used compressed air...
