    Lightbulb A remedy for frequent BSOD (Blue Screen of Death)

    All of a sudden, my pc started throwing random BSODs over the past 3 days at 15~20 min intervals of usage. Each and every BSOD encountered had different stop codes (sometimes not even connected in any way to the others) and these BSODs occurred regardless of whatever the pc was doing from playing games to sitting idle.


    There are uncountable number of factors that could result in BSODs. First I suspected the RAM, ran extended tests but didn't find a fault. Then hardware drivers, so I basically did a complete reset of the pc with a clean install of windows to rule out some suspects. BSODs still persisted. Kindda weird r8?

    After scouring the internet in search of a suitable solution, I realized that a lot of people who were having this problem got their HDDs replaced thus fixing their issue. I ran Crystal DiskInfo and HDTune to see whether I had bad sectors but both showed perfect health of HDD along with no bad sectors.

    I later wondered if the HDD wasn't the issue then something connected to it was and quite literally. It turned out that swapping out the 3-year-old S-ATA cable of my HDD with a brand new one fixed everything! No BSOD for the past 3 hours!

    So I'm sharing this with you chaps hoping that it'd prove to be helpful to someone in the future.

    Cheers!

    Hands down, event viewer is always the best place to troubleshoot. Its wayy easy to look for possible solution when you google by Event ID.
