BSOD after new Video Card and PSU

Hello, I would really appreciate any help and I would like to say that I am not real computer savvy so please dumb it down for me.

I recently updated my PC with an Asus Radeon HD7770 and a new 600w PSU.

After the update, my system bluescreens on me. For the first few days, it worked fine while playing fairly new games. Then it started getting worse and worse. Finally it started crashing after only a few minutes of graphics-light usage. Often, it will first have colored dots on the screen and then it will show the background programs and it will finally bluescreen.

Over the past week, I have been reading many forums and I have tried numerous fixes. I have blew out all the dust from the pc and removed the side cover to reduce the temp. I have checked my fans and they are all spinning. I have completed a system recovery so all old drivers would be removed (this has allowed me to work in Windows without a crash but games still crash it). I have loaded the latest drivers. Nothing has worked.

My system specs: AMD Phenom II X6 1045T Processor (2.70 GHz). 12GB RAM. 64bit. Windows 7.

I tried HWMonitor and a few strange items I have noticed are the voltage seems off (see below) and TMPIN1 seems high (around 60C).

Any advice would be awesome.
Thanks

    I scrapped my old PSU after everything was working good (for a few days). Should I buy another PSU to try?
    Thanks
  3. Best answer
    do you still have the old video card .another thing use this on the sensor parts and see if voltages report the same http://www.hwinfo.com/download.php
  4. Did you also scrap your GPU? Might as well try the old one with the new PSU to see if the current card is defective.
  5. I am a moron and scrapped the GPU also.

    Not sure if this info will help but last night, I ran Prime 95 for about an hour and it worked fine. Then I tried Video Card Stability Test and it BSOD after less than 30 seconds.

  6. Triple check that you have the latest drivers, because almost every other fix will involve getting a new part to test it.

    What are all of your temps?
  7. that is not good try her with gpu-z on the rendering and see what happens also did you have any readings from the hwinfo .
  8. Here is the section from HWMonitor - this was after a minute of a video card stress test.

    Thanks again for all of your help - it is awesome and much appreciated.

  9. I installed GPU-Z but how can I copy/paste the info over here or which info do you need? Thanks again.
  10. I tried to run the Video Card Stability Test again and this time it just froze. Then I ran the benchmark feature on the Video Card Stability Test app and it was chugging along fine for about 2 of the 3 minutes and then it froze to a complete white screen. While it was running, I was watching the temps and nothing got above 57C.

  11. One more thing I thought of. My MoBo has a 4 pin/slot connector but the PSU I bought didn't have a 4 slot so I cut down a 6 slot and attached it to the 4 slot (capping the extra 2 wires). Would this mess anything up? Thanks again.

    Typically motherboards only have 4 pin or 8 pin power connectors for the CPU, so 6 pins are not designed to work with it. Generally they are PCI-e cables which power GPUs, so modifying the cable could definitely cause instability. That's where my knowledge of cable modification stops. If you didn't have to force it in or anything then I would focus more on the GPU for now.
  13. give the name and model of that psu we have to check details on it before it is to late and do dammage to the motherboard .
  14. It is a Thermaltake TR2 TR-600 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

  15. see the bottom of the link you have that 4 pins cable for the motherboard it is mark atx 12 so replug everything correctly and recheck all the voltage with the software .https://www.thermaltakeusa.com/products-model.aspx?id=C_00002032

    UHH you are not suppose to do that!
    You are lucky you didn't burn up your motherboard already. Seriously all PSUs have
    4 pin or 4+4 pin connectors for the motherboard
  17. It works!!!! It was totally my bad - I saw the 8 pin connector and I didn't realize it could be broke apart into 2 - 4 pin connectors.

    I want to say all of you are awesome and I truly appreciate your time and advice. If you are ever in Denver, CO, look me up and I am buying (beers, lunch, coffee, etc). Thanks again. Jerry
  18. glad it work as it should if you ever need help come be there always be somebody around .Salutations a toi scout_03
