    BSOD fun that doesn't end


    Hello,
    I just built a new gaming pc, installed a fresh copy of windows that I installed from their website (windows media creation tool), and got the first BSOD while the windows installation was finishing. When i got all set up and done with my windows installing i got another blue screen (new stop codes almost every time). I updated my drivers and that didn't seem to help (maybe i didn't update all of them, installed a faulty driver, didn't properly update my motherboard bios etc., i don't know..).
    I unplugged all the unnecessary devices from my PC aka mouse, keyboard and the PC still crashed after a while. So i decided to check for damaged/missing system files in cmd with command sfc /scannow and it didn't find anything, checked my memory with memtest86 (let it go 10 passes) and windows memory diagnostic, checked my ssd and hard drive with HDTune and CrystalDiskInfo and health is all fine, 0 damaged blocks, SMART is all good.. i ran driver verifier on all processes that were not from microsoft and didn't get a blue screen.
    PC specs:
    Motherboard: MSI B250M PRO VDH LGA1151
    Processor: INTEL Pentium G4560, 3.50GHz, 3MB, HyperThreading, LGA1151, Kaby Lake
    Memory: 8GB DDR4 2133MHz PC17000
    SSD: 120gb sata3 ssd
    Hard Drive: 1TB, 7200rpm, SATA3
    Graphics: nVidia GeForce GTX1050Ti 4GB GDDR5
    PSU: LC POWER LC6350, 350W

    Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance

    Hi arcticx7,

    Same user from a different forum here.

    Switch your PSU with a proper one, if it doesn't help then your motherboard is likely the cause.

    How can I be sure though? I don't wanna buy another psu and motherboard just to see that something else is the issue.. (new psu and motherboard would cost me one third of the entire pc cost)

    All that's left is the PSU, motherboard and CPU. CPU is unlikely at the moment.

    You said you can swap the PSU with another pc so that saves you money and time.

    You think it's not a software issue? Most of the time blue screens are a software issue right? Drivers? Maybe a microsoft driver/process is causing this..

    If it's a psu issue, wouldn't the system crash when I ran memtest86 for 9 hours straight?

    Windows vanille installation crashes so it's not a software problem.

    No, memtest86 doesn't require much and as I mentioned on the other forum hardware can be specific and random.

    A tip, don't create any more threads on different forums. You will mainly be asked to go through the same things you've already done over and over again, that is, if you're lucky to have another BSOD Analyst helping.

    Thanks for all the help axe, I will run hdtune again just to be sure, and then swap the cpu.

    Has the PSU been swapped and system crashed?
