    Hey guys.
    Two years ago I bought myself new parts for my PC (RAM, GPU, CPU and HDD). Everything was running fine, but sometimes games were crashing with error "memory cannot be 'read'" or something. I got tired of this an I upgraded to Win7 (was using XP). For the first 2 months everything was running seamlessly, but after that time games were crashing to desktop with "[appname].exe has stopped working" error. After like half a month from this computer started randomly bluescreening an there was once time when 60 bluescreens a day was daily basis. Then I reinstalled Win7 and everything was back to normal, but after some time crashes and bluescreens came back. Bluescreens weren't as frequent as last time, so I dodn't reinstall and after a month they just suddenly stopped appearing, but they again came back after some time. And the cycle continued. Once, I took my PC to some tech support. They kept my PC for a week and then they gave it back and said it should work fine now. Well, it was working fine but after a month it was going like it again. Today, aside from bluescreens and rare crashes, my computer sometimes freezes (sometimes it just goes like it's going to bluescreen, so everything is freezed and sound is like WRRRR, but also sometimes [and lately most frequently appearing problem] everything is functioning like normal, but internet connection and mouse just suddenly dies, keybord works for a short time after this, but it dies too afterwards and i can't do anything but restart) or rarely it just shuts down without any apperent reason (it shuts down like after power cut).


    tl;dr:
    2 years ago I upgraded my PC and after this it's bluescreening, crashing and freezeng like an idiot.

    Most frequent bluescreens:
    PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (0x50)
    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (0xA)
    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (0xD1)
    and more rare ones:
    KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (0x1000008E)
    APC_INDEX_MISMATCH (0x1)
    MEMORY_MANAGEMENT (0xI forgot)


    According to BlueScreenView most common error modules are:
    win32k.sys
    ntkrnlpa.exe
    halmacpi.dll
    ndis.sys
    and sometimes cdd.dll

    Speccy Snapshot
    Minidump from last bluescreen


    And some things:
    - I tried replacing new RAM and GPU with old ones and I'm still getting the same issues
    - Guy from tech support like 1,5 year ago said that there is possibility that my motherboard is getting old or something
    - Month ago I did test with Prime95 twice and both times there were critical errors followed by bluescreens in like 30 seconds

    I think that'll be all, please for assist and thanks in advance.

    Sounds like a mobo issue, maybe the controller is fucked and slowly corrupts files on the HDD and stuff.

    Just confirmed that in like 90% of times playing games, watching shit on YT or listening to music on AIMP3 pretty much guarantees that mouse, internet and keybord will shut down

    Just found out that these mouse, internet and keyboard shut downs were caused by Sound Card, fixed it by disabling it, but I'm without sound now and there are still occasional bluescreens and now more frequent crashes.

    I would assume your mouse and keyboard are both USB? Everything you're having problems with is hinting to the motherboard.

    Looks like these freezes weren't entirely Sound Card's fault because even with it disabled computer can still freeze. (Not as frequently as before, but still)

    Mouse - yes. Keyboard - no.

    [SUB]UPDATE:[/SUB]
    Ok, I'm confused... Now even with Sound Card disabled it can freeze at the same rate as it was freezing with sound card turned on...
