Uncorrectable BSOD Error on Assembled Computer

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I assembled the computer I am using right now few days ago. The problem is it keeps on displaying a BSOD error which says that it is an “Uncorrectable Error.” I have desperately searched the net for any solution to this problem but I still can’t find anything helpful. Also, I’ve heard from a friend that this error might be caused by a hardware problem which is I’m not so sure of. I really need help with regards to this. I’d be really thankful to those who can help me solve this problem. By the way, these are the specs of my computer:

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit (6.1, Build 7600)

Processor: Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor

RAM: G-Skill 4GB Ripjaws DDR3 PC12800-1600 MHz Cas 7 Kit

Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460,1024 MB

Hard Drive: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"

PSU: Coolermaster 1000 W Silent Pro Gold 

All my drivers are up to date and have tried reinstalling my operating system again but nothing seems to prevent the error from popping up. Could you please help me?

The error is caused by a hardware problem, and probably and error with the hard disk, processor, or the RAM, and therefore you will need to troubleshoot that.

For the processor, you will need to check if it is failing due to forced reboot, or the system was turned off using the wrong procedure and then troubleshoot that. For the hard disk, you will need to check that the cable connecting it to the motherboard is not loose or the jumpers have been wrongly configured.

If the problem is the memory, it may be a defective memory, and that could occur when the system is cold or hot, but not all the time. You can use a memory tester to confirm  if RAM is defective or if you have spare memory, you should  try a replacement.

Uncorrectable BSOD Error on Assembled Computer


If you are referring to the “WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR” BSOD, it usually happens on Windows 10 but can also be encountered on Windows 7 and Windows 8. There are many reasons why you receive this error. One is corrupted or incorrectly configured device drivers. Another is a faulty memory module or hard drive.

Overclocking the CPU can also cause the problem because of the amount of heat produced causing the computer to destabilize and trigger the error. There are also times a failed Windows Update can cause this problem. To check, first, you need to test the memory modules. Try inserting the memory modules on another working computer with the same memory type to see if the error follows.

If the error appeared on the other computer, try checking which of the memory modules has a problem if you have more than one memory modules. Insert only one then if there is no error, remove it then insert the other one. Once you located which module is faulty, buy a new one and replace it.

On the other hand, if there is no problem with the memory, the next to check is the hard drive. Reinstall all the memory modules on the computer then boot in Safe Mode. Start the computer then press F8 before the Windows logo appears. In “Advanced Boot Options” screen, scroll down and select “Safe Mode” then hit Enter to boot.

Once in Safe Mode, click “Start” then in the search box type without quotes “chkdsk”. From the search result, right-click “chkdsk.exe” then select “Run as administrator”. CHKDSK will try to fix any error it can find on the drive.
