    Win 8 BSOD, different error every time

    I suppose so, though I can still see no technical difference between the two. The only difference is one is a slightly longer cord... The label seems identical. I'm just glad I finally found the cause of my particularly perplexing issue. I've never seen anything like this caused by power in the...

    Win 8 BSOD, different error every time

    Well, after painstakingly fresh-installing 4 times, among other things, I think I narrowed it down to my charger cord. My old cord got switched, but they were nearly identical to begin with so I didn't think much of it. Both were the same voltage, watts, polarity, event the same brand (compaq...

    Win 8 BSOD, different error every time

    Ok, well I installed 7 and, as I feared, I got a blue screen after installing all the updates and during my initial antivirus scan. Well crap. Looks like it's hardware. Dump points to "ataport.sys" I'm starting to think it might be my sshd's sata controller, or the southbridge, or something...

    Win 8 BSOD, different error every time

    I tried the refresh, it just told me it cannot refresh because the drive is locked. I can't repair from the installation source because my drive is encrypted. SFC came up with a single bad file before that could not be repaired, but it is apparently a very common problem with a corrupt file. I...

    Win 8 BSOD, different error every time

    Thanks for your help, but it looks like I'll be downgrading to Windows 7. Seems like that will be the least hassle solution. I'm just not looking forward to backing up 400 gb of data from my encrypted drive... So much for "If your computer can run 7, it'll run 8 fine" At least my Windows 8 class...

    Win 8 BSOD, different error every time

    Model CQ62-228DX Many of my original components have been replaced/upgraded, including HDD, Wireless, RAM. I got my Windows 8 drivers from each of the new components manufacturers. I checked, there is no firmware update for my newer SSHD. Version F.29 is the latest BIOS. It may be worth noting...

    Win 8 BSOD, different error every time

    I've looked through my minidumps and they all have one thing in common: ntoskrnl.exe ntoskrnl.exe+59769 fffff802`e9e0a000 fffff802`ea556000 0x0074c000 0x51a966cd 5/31/2013 7:13:17 PM Kernel errors? Time to revert to Windows 7? Side Note: PC refresh fails, says hard drive...

    Win 8 BSOD, different error every time

    Hello, I'm running Windows 8 on my laptop, and I've started getting very intermittent Blue Screens, with a different error code every time. I'm not ruling out hardware, but running linux off a bootable usb runs totally stable. Maybe hard drive? I'll be upset if it is, it's a 750 gb SSHD I bought...
