I also forgot to mention when I noticed the system was going to crash- mere milliseconds before it crashed while I was looking at the event viewer, a critical disk error appeared in the log, but it crashed too quickly for me to read it other than the title of the error being "disk". When I rebooted after the bsod, the event viewer log for the previous minute was gone, with no log of the disk error. SMART comes back a-o.k, sfc /scannow came back clean every time, chkdsk sorted out some bad sectors about 2 reformats ago and hasn't done anything since.
I use ESET Smart Security as my antivirus. Also gave malwarebytes a try, it found nothing, so I got rid of it and kept with ESET. I love ESET.
I've currently contacted the local PC repair guy (a floopen genius in PC repair with over 30 years in the business, has never let me down), but I'd like to see if I could repair it over the internet before I get a quote back and sort out a time he can come around.
One thing I've noticed too is that occasionally, maybe 10% of the time, when I boot my PC up after a bsod, the fans sound different, as if someone just placed a different fan in my system, much louder, much faster, but boot up is mega slow, then following a reboot, the normal fan sound is back and it boots up quick.
I'll try virtually anything. Not got much to lose. (updated bios, chipset, all drivers both on the disc the parts came with and from their respective websites)
