Factory Reinstall, Still BSOD

by doz_pyro / December 28, 2012 4:04 AM PST

I was fed up with everything my computer was doing and ended up just doing a factory reinstall.

And I'm still getting a BSOD. Any ideas?

Also, does anyone have any tips for checking drivers?

The instructions gave me the courage to take it apart. The amount of dust in the fan/duct was insane! It was almost completely blocked. I put it all back together, and so far, so good! Although, I swear those screws multiplied themselves. Ended up with a few extra...

Have you tried booting to Safe Mode?

If you can boot to Safe Mode (via hitting F8 about once a second when powering up), you can look at Device Manager and check your drivers.

Good luck.
