I came back from work and found out my pc is messed up. I was lucky enough to back up my data but I am keep getting bsod. There are too many random code is I gave up writing them down and look for google solution.

I did format... I was not able to install win10 because it kept getting bsod after finishing installation. I installed win7 and it worked..

The problem is after that..
I get random bsod when I install drivers.. I tried switching out hdd, ram to new one but no luck.. if formatting or switching hdd, ram doesn't work.. what's left? I suppose it's either motherboard or video card but if it's one of them, shouldn't it work at all when I fresh install everything? I wasted too much time on this already. I don't think it's cpu coz if it was, pc would get black screen or freeze left and right. I don't get blue screen at all when I just install win7 and leave it be without installing anything.. wtf...

I bet you its the PSU. I would look into replacing that and see if that does the trick.

hm... my corsair gold 1200 watts.. I think I had it for 4 years or something.. I think I will RMA it but if it's psu, shouldn't it not turn on at all?

Maby it messed up a part of the wiring or something, where it still works but it keeps bugging out on you. I mean you tried swapping out other components already, but not the PSU. So it has to be that. I can't think of anything else.

Did some google searching, try what the best answer says. You already changed out the hard drive, so its not that.

Try putting the computer into a new surge protector as another idea.

I'd say your mobo is fried. I've had that. Went through 2 surges, one fried the ethernet port, the other made the ram unstable (I did learn from the initial surge, was in another country on the second). Chaning the mobo fixed it...

That said, I don't know its the PSU, but I'd put money on the mobo being the issue given most of the drivers are primarily focused on running things on the mobo...with it being fried, that usually equals instability (BSOD).

That's my 2 cents anyhow...goodluck!

I was hoping its not that. PSU is an easy fix. Mobo, oh boy. I have an EVGA PSU, and heard they are really good, cause when a power surge happens, it fries the PSU, but leaves the rest of the components unscathed. Then its the mobo or the PSU.

Why not just analyse the BSOD and stop playing mop-a-mole?

That said, there's a pretty decent chance your motherboard took a hit if you're getting BSODs after a power surge.
