Am I stressing my PSU?
Okay. I've been having this problem for a while. I get a 0x000003b BSOD message after exiting my Maxthon Web Browser. Today, I also got it while running scans for Advanced SystemCare 4 and Privacy Mantra. I think there's two parts to this. A) The BSOD occurs only when trying to clean my computer, and more importantly
I think i'm stressing my 300W power supply. A few days ago, I installed an external Hard Drive case (with an independent power source) and thus, consuming more power. When I tried ASC4 & PM scans with the external HD case powered off, it didn't BSOD. When it is on, it does BSOD. I'm thinking that I need to upgrade my power supply. But is this really the answer? I don't wanna spend a fortune on a problem that might not be fixed.
I even uninstalled Maxthon, and it still BSOD'd.
Can anybody help me with this? I don't wanna have to take anything out. Any help would be appreciated.
