    Computer crash problem

    A couple months ago, I installed a SSD in my computer as the C: drive. I've been getting the "blue screen of death" occasionally. On the down side, it is freaking irritating, on the up side, it boots back up pretty darn quick.

    Here is the code from the blue screen: 0x00000024 (0x001904AA, 0xAE05A660, 0xAE05A35C, 0x822FFE5D)

    My level of expertise is "Follows directions and plays well with others" but I have run a check disk and found no problems.

    Any thoughts from the computer knowledgeable?

    Did your SSD fail already? I would think about warranty-ing that thing.

    No, computer works just fine....most of the time. There is a long time between crashes, relatively speaking. Hours usually.

    write down more than the error code next time. usually either at the top or bottom of the BSOD it tells what driver or file or something caused the panic. then google it.

    could be the HD, could be RAM, could be board/cpu overheating. BSODs could be any number of things. When you installed the HDD yourself you might have messed something up inside or damaged the board and it's slowly failing over time. They don't always spark out instantly. Your pwer supply may also be faulty.

    So the codes I listed aren't the codes that I need? Those were the ones that came up on screen.

    Assuming you have windows, you might look for a dump file. Usually in the C:\minidump folder. If there, it should have the codes.

    Run Memtest for your RAM, the dump file would have to be posted on a security forum.....
    When i went SSD I followed this guide (but then i filled up the drive and went back to regular HDD)

    Running Vista, can't find a c:\minidump. Or memtest.

    Did you ghost your hard drive image onto the new SSD or did you do a clean install?

    Our squadron in Alaska was known as the Alaskan Blue Foxes and many of our jets were marked by the small blue foxes and not the large drunk pilot types.

    Clean install. Just updated the chipset drivers last night and the computer appears to be running better but has still crashed a couple times.

    Got a copy of Windows 7 but was planning on using that for a new computer build.

    check the power supply. seriously. they usually don't die outright unless there is a surge. they usually start to fail randomly such as yours is.

    you should also double check your CPU and make sure you didn't leave the heatsink + fan dangling or anything. You might need to put more thermal paste or tape as well if it's been degraded enough. If th CPU is overheating it'll shut down the computer.
    Has it crashed while doing anything slightly more CPU intensive, or was it just sitting there and suddenly happen?

    My son ran prime95 which runs up the CPU workload with no problems. Previous crashes have normally occurred web browsing which is about as stressed as the computer gets. I've had no problems with Word or running a wireless printer doing some scans.

    Fan was backwards blowing away from the CPU vs towards the CPU. Let's see how this works.

    Given the price of SSDs, when you next wipe/reload, I recommend ONLY using the SSD for your operating system and applications. Data(your music library, for example) is better off on a standard drive, as it reduces the number of read/write cycles on the SSD, which DOES have a limit(I'm not saying spinning platters don't, but at least you wouldn't have a single point of failure) .

    That is exactly how it is set up plus I have 2 1T drives for backup.

    if it's the CPU fan its supposed to blow away. assuming its on top of a heatsink as well because the heatsink takes the heat from the CPU and the fan blows it away.

    if you're talking about a case fan that could go either way, but technically the case fan in the rear should blow out because otherwise you're going to be blowing dust and dirt and particulates INTO the case.
