Default Constant Blue Screens

Hello,

my fairly new computer (6months) has been acting very strange. I get blue screens all the time and the computer makes a very noisy buzzing sound.

Below are the blue screens I have been getting:


(sorry this one is upside down for some reason)


Any suggestions on how I can troubleshoot/fix this problem?

it would help to have more information like:
which version of windows,
what are \ where you doing when you recieved the BSOD
have you installed anything new like drivers,software or any new hardware installations.
what is your hardware
motherboard cpu gpu ram etc.
the more information the better.

the buzzing could be your psu,gpu or mobo.

or hdd if its an ssd.

you got to take it one step at a time, go to bios and load defaults, then go back there and check voltages, temps. anything
catch your eye?

- Windows 7 - 64bit
- Most of the time I get the bluescreen when playing starcraft2
- I have an intel i5, 8gb of ram, and a geforce 460 graphics card (just updated it)
- My motherboard is an asus p7h55
- the buzzing noise seems to be coming from the front of the computer.
- It also make other noises. I'm not sure how to describe them. It Kind of sounds like the computer is working really hard to do something.

Computer is 6months old and the problem has been occurring ever since I bought it. I have reinstalled windows twice witch will temporarily fix the problem but then it comes back after a week or two. The computer is very quite after a reinstall but then when I do a windows service pack update it gets noisy and the problems begin.

If this is your Ibuypower system, contact them directly as the machine should be under warranty. I'd guess that the problem is either RAM or Power supply related. You might try increasing the RAM voltage a notch in the BIOS if you are comfortable doing this, but the buzzing noise is probably PSU related.

Looks like faulty memory to me.
The buzzing sound could be anything that moves.
