Super Duper Modulator
So about 2 days ago my pc started acting a little strange and then all of the sudden I get the blue screen of death with the IRQL error message. I haven't really made any changes of late so I hoped that a quick restart would get me on my happy way, and for the remainder of the night it did. Then I try to connect to the Internet (dial-up) and nothing happens. I click on the shortcuts in my quick launch bar, hourglass pops up and then nothing happens. Nothing shows in the taskmanager either. Then I get another BSOD, with the same message. Then I notice that my OC settings are not showing correctly in any of the programs I have but have not changed when viewed in the BIOS? Also sometimes it will go ahead and shutdown properly when told to, but when asked to restart it will freeze on the Windows is Shutting Down Message. I could only tolerate this for so long so today I reformatted the drive and did a full install. Thus far some of the problems are fixed but not all. OC settings still do not show properly, just shows as stock, and the restart function does not work all the time. The only thing I can think of is the night before we had a storm with lightning. Maybe the motherboard got hit? I have checked the RAM and it tests OK and nothing is overheating. So I am at a loss and could use some help. Sorry for the long post, wanted to try and give enough detail. Thanks.
