Hi guys, I've been having a hellish time of it this week. First my case fan died, after replacing that my CPU fan died! Installed a new one and my computer wouldnt start at all...hmpph.
I took it all out and bench ran it and it started fine, and when i put it all back in it runs fine so I'm assuming something wasnt seated correctly (even after multiple checks) or possibly there was a contact on the case somewhere.
Hooray, PC boots...but it was a short celebration; once windows starts I get BSOD and reboot o.O
First one was "page error in non-paged area" and the second was "IRQ not less or equal". I can start in safe mode (with or without networking) and it sits there fine. When I start normally it BSOD's whilst the desktop is loading.
ASSUMPTION: This stuff isnt my forte, but I have come to the conclusion that this is a software issue. Since it only happens during normal startup I guessed (and hoped) that the RAM isnt to blame as iI first assumed.
Before I go through the arduous "Selective Startup" process to find the culprit, I hoped that someone better versed in this area could confirm that my train of thougth hasn't derailed :)
