Just registered.

I'm looking for help.
Basically I get random blue screens. I'll be on firefox the Bam, My music starts stuttering in winamp, my computer starts to freeze up then it Usually shuts down. Then restarts, upon restarting 7 says I had some issues and states the error, it was a blue screen error, locale ID: 1033 ..???

Anyways, sometimes I'd get some error pop up in the bottom right saying something about the display. It only last for a second then disappears..

My friend thinks it could be hardware related.. but I Don't really know. I had this computer built at the begining of 2013... It's a new computer basically. So to have blue screens n' stuff is really killing me I Waited a long time to have a decent computer.

umm Is there anything I can put in a reply to you guys to help you help me? I Actualy just thought of posting on here, but was going to just do a fresh install of 7... I probly should of come here a long time ago...

I use DVI to my DVI monitor, and HDMI to my Yamaha HDMI receiver from my 560 Ti 1GB video card. I set both to 1080p and move the screen for HDMI to the bottom right corner on the display settings.

Any help will be nice.
Thanks.

Your specs would be nice... Motherboard, CPU, Ram, PSU, Temps on everything.... could be a driver issue also...

What's the best way to look this up through my computer without going into my buying history on tigerdirect. Thanks [edit]: I Don't know my computer off hand.

Straight from my order:

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition AM3 CPU

ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS 760G Socket AM3+ Motherboard

Corsair XMS 8GB PC10666 DDR3 1333MHz Kit (2x4GB)

Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 700w Power Supply

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB 1024MB GDDR5 PCB PCIe


I have Core Temp running, the temps for 4 cores are usually at 90-100 F or more depending on if I'm in a game or whatever. I've re-installed my GPU drivers before.

Are you sure its F and not C if its C and 90-100c your cooking your CPU which can cause a blue screen.... are you using the Stock CPU cooler if so change it to a Bigger one that can cool it better... I did the same with my P2x4 965... I have a zerotherm nirvana nv120 premium does wonders with my CPU I get about 28-34c in windows and in game no higher than 68c my GPU how ever goes from 34c in windows to over 70c sometimes depending on the game and video setting...

NOTE: I have my GPU downclocked due to bad bin and I've already RMA it to EVGA and they sent it back...

Also you might want to install All CPU Meter and GPU Meter and PC Meter... and set Alarms for temps close to TJ Max.

It will beep if your close to its Max's Temp and help you avoid a dead CPU, or GPU.

Try those out and see if anything changes...

Rahbot, just a quick update:

The cpu fan I use is:
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 120mm fan CPU Cooler

Yes It's 'F' degrees Fahrenheit (I'm pretty sure) I think there's a setting that you can switch it from F or C in Core Temp.

I really don't want to mess around with the internals of the computer..if that's what your advising me to do through meters.

I just want to add something here, the computer pretty much never freezes when playing fullscreen games like BF3 and other games. So... It's more of a browsing with music on sort of freezing crash.

No the Meters are Apps/Programs you can download if you have Windows 7... No need to mess with the motherboard and such... just look for PC Meter, All CPU Meter, And GPU Meter.... also you can use EVGA Precision X I use the 4.0.0 Version because the new ones don't let you OC or UC your GPU... that much...

sounds like a driver issue... I never get this issue with my GTX 570 with a 32" LCD HDTV using HDMI... altho my GPU starts to overheat with the bigger screen @ 1080p.

you could try disabling hardware acceleration in flash. right click on the flash app (youtube video whatever) -> settings -> 1st tab untick hw acceleration.
