Need Help. BSOD
Hi fellas, I'm not sure if this is the right section for this, if it's not, just remove or move.
OK, here's my problem. I have a custom-built computer. About a year old, worked great until now. On it, I have 2 hard drives which I installed XP and Vista on it (not sure if it was such a good idea now). Now, on Vista, it gets the fatal error screen, or the blue screen of death. On XP, it got some system errors in the beginning, now it boots up fine but there are still some problems.
Here are the problems:
When boot on XP, it shuts off by itself after couple of minutes, sometimes more, sometimes less. Also, when I tried to transfer the movie, Happy Feet into my external HD, it auto-reboot when it's near done. Other movies are fine, I don't know why.
If I try to reboot it, instead of rebooting, it just shuts off.
When try to boot into Vista, after the loading screen (with the logo and green bar), it show the BSOD.
I tried to reformat the computer, but when I try with XP, after it finish the loading screen (first part, before it load the logo and the copy & format screen), it just shuts off. When I try with Vista, after it finish the loading from disk screen, it get the fatal system error.
I tried changing the HD, same result. Tried different PSU, same result. I'm thinking if it may be the motherboard, RAM, or maybe both HD was damaged? I haven't tried different DVD-drive yet because it's late right now, maybe I'll try tomorrow.
I don't think it is the PSU, because I tried two different ones and the computer shuts off at the same thing when I try to reformat. But I'm out of ideas, and it's getting so frustrating. If anyone have any idea, please help.
I was going to try to install Ubuntu on it but then I realize I don't have any CD-R's with me, anyone thing it's worth a try?
