Motherboard problems? Help please.

This issue started about a week ago. My computer stays on for about 30 mins and then will crash giving me a Light blue screen of death with error code 0xc0000225. Nothing really works at this point kbam are unresponsive. If i clear the cmos I regain control of my equipment but it usually fails again after 30 mins.

I run win 8 pro 64-bit

Radeon HD 6950
AsRockp67 Extreme4 Gen3
8 gb ram
i5-2400 cpu 3.1 ghz

Any thoughts or know how to check to see if the mobo is busted or whatever

    Try booting to a recovery console (if you have one) or download a recovery CD and boot to it and run a bootrec /rebuildbcd.

    Also, did you install over your Win7 installation when upgrading to Win8? I had weird issues with drivers that would cause BSODs in Win8 until I did a clean install of the OS.

    It was a clean install. I installed the latest version of all my drivers. To be clear I can boot the computer up it just fails about 30 mins after I do that and then hangs completely until I clear cmos.

    that's an odd problem and sounds more like a hardware failure then something wrong with windows.

    try running memtest a while and see if it gives you any errors.

    I have to get to sleep now but ill check memtest out tomorrow, thanks for the suggestion. I was watching the temps of my computer all the way up to failure and they seemed normal. Wierd thing happend though I had league of legends running, the temp program running, and mumble. They seemed to systematically fail a few seconds after one another. League then the temp program then metro and finally locked up.

    Did memtest and it reported back no errors for each stick. I had an extra gfx card laying around going to swap that in. if it persists then its probably the mobo right?

    Or your processor, a bent pin could cause that kind of muck.

    If there's no weird temperature stuff being reported, it could be the PSU itself getting toasty and overheating.

    Checked the seating on the processor and it seems fine. With the new graphics card the problem was delayed to like an hour but still happend. This card is not as powerful as the other. Is there any way to check the mobo processor or psu?

    So seems the temp monitor i was using was crap. Used cpuid now and it seems my processor is getting quite hot it got up to 95c before i stopped using prime to push it.

    eek that is getting way hot, the blue screen might be from the temperature protection kicking in on the chip and it severely downclocks to save itself.

    I'd try cleaning off your cpu and heatsink, and applying some new thermal compound.

    ended up ordering a good heatsink. I am curious though if that wil end my problems. If i leave my computer on at idle for an extended amount of time itll crash with a black screen and that error code.

    If anyone has a method of testing cpu or mobo id appreciate it.

    Finally figured out it was the SSD causing all the problems.

    Strange!

    I'd look more at your PSU in particular. A bad PSU can cause a CPU issue like that and cause hardware to start randomly failing.

    not a doctor, not a lawyer, examples I use may not be fully researched so don't take out of context plz, don't @ me
