Cpu restarts when gaming, just fixed ntdfl error, and re-formated

Hey there everyone, , , , , , If there are miss-spelling i apoligise.

So I am really having a boggle regarding my cpu. Wats hapening right now is that when I run any type of game that demands multi-core or high end cpu performance my cpu shut downs and restarts on its on and then once it starts to boot back up I get the Blue Screen. This has just recently been happening for the past 2 days and befor that i had top reformat my drive because I was getting the (NTDLFR File Missing error Ctrl - Alt Delete to Restart) message. Now I started to recieve this message a day or two i started to overclock my I7 on air cooling. I didnt push the cpu that far but i did want to get some performance out of it so I bumped up the RAM and, Chipset and cpu voltages plus the base clock freq. When I bumped up the RAM mhz I went past what the memory can handle, (on accident) and I started to get my cpu acting funy. My overclock was working just fine but after 2 days My cpu would start to shut down during game or Furmark and say the NTDLFR file is missing error. This took me a while to fix untill I just re-formated my 1tb harddrive. A funni thing is that While trying to run my Windows cd to try and repair the NTDLFR file error my disk drive actually killed and died on me. Made a weird screeching sound and So i then said ok . I replaced it and tryed the Cd but there was no way I can boot from CD no matter what so i said screw it and reformated my drive. And here I am now. After the reformat i installed my os and drivers back on the drive and recently tryed to run some games and furmark. But now my cpu restarts and when booting back up It gives me the blue screen. I run windows repair and it says it cant fix the problem. The repair tells me that the error is 0xfffff88011c00000, 0xe, 0x0, 0xfffff88010051b6e. At this point i dont know if my harddrive is permanetly corrupted, or my Mobo is Fryed from the overclocking where this all started, or my Processor is fryed, Or my graphic cards are fryed, Or my PSU is Fryed.

Honestly Brothern I do not know what to do. I am kinda tyred from checking everythng and re checking and re downloading every driver . Plus Im at college and have a bunch of fun homework to do.

Does anybody Have any help or suggestions. I am so open and just ask for info i will be happy to do my bast at providing it.

  1. O yea and my PSu is a 700 w OCZ, It has always worked fine with my SLI configuration witht he Gtx 285's untill I decided to try to overclock my cpu and Boom, Problems.
  2. Did you clear the cmos before or after the reformat?

    What vdimm (ram) voltage did you use when you OCed your ram?
  3. hey there RJR, Thank you for your post. !!! You know what I havent cleared the cmos at all yet and I really have been eager too. I think I will do that and clear the cmos by moving the jumper position and booting back up. I will read on it befor I do that though. And regarding the RAM Voltage I put it at 2067mhz or very close. The first three digits were 206 something . So yea. My stupid fault that I didnt pay close attention and ran that for liek 2 days i think. plus I upted the voltage ont he chipset and Ram voltage thinking It may help stabalize the overclock....... At this point I would Like to diagnose the problem as close as I can. I am gona take a loan out for a new seriously though....
  4. CLEAR CMOS, reformat and reinstall OS when everything is at stock configuration.

    You do know that your ram voltage is maxed out out 1.65v or you can damage the cpu, right?

    If not you may want to download the data sheet so you know what voltages and temps you shouldn't exceed:
  5. Yea I knew that the RAm voltage is maxed out at 1.65 and I Never intended to go past that or Nor did I did. I set my Ram at 1.54 compared to the nowm which is something that I cant recall. Okie dokie I will cleear the cmos, reformat and reinstall. this will be for a while like untill monday cuz of my time doing homework and other bs...... I just recently took one GtX 285 out and ran furmark on it. I did not restart like it would in SLI. I also did this for the other card and both ran furmark flawlessly without any restarts. So im curious that maybe my cpu got damaged or mobo or Ram. ... But you suggest that I Clear CMOS, Reformat, And Reinstall OS.?
  6. O wait Just to let you know. Befor I reformated my drive i did set my cpu bios to defaults befor I reformated. so I dont know of clearing the cmos will help.
  7. Does any one else have any suggestions?
  8. Are you running build 7100 of windows 7? The beta is long are a college student...get a student copy of windows 7 (cheap).

    Clear your CMOS, set everything back to stock setting.

    Do a clean install of your purchased student copy of windows 7.

    Get a stable stock system, and then READ the many overclock guides here at Tom's.

    that's the best I can do for you.
  9. Well... This is a bit of a dog for you...

    I would look at swapping ram with someone and seeing if that hasn't been fried or as henrystrawn says maybe the Beta win 7 decided to die on you

    Good luck With your PC and your studies. :D
  10. Ok update on my Confusing ordeal..... So i cleared my cmos and reformated my drive....... I then tested my two gtx 285's individualy in both PCI Slot 1 and 2 to see if mayb its the PCI slot or something and they worked fine on Furmark...... So i said ok maybe its safe to try SLI configuration...... I then Install and run Furmark doing SLI and BAM.... Right when Furmark started up my cpu restarted and after booting windows up it went to a blue screen........ What a headach..!...!..... My guess is that software wise my cpu is fine but hardware wise my cpu is inhealthy.... Something is not allowing me to do SLI and when I do try I cannot boot into windows only to meet Bluescreen...... Any suggestions on what I should do,.... Im thinking of just getting a gtx 480 and shutting up with one Graphic card.........
  11. What PSU are you using? If it isn't software/BIOS related and both cards/slots work (1 at a time) then it is likely your PSU (or something weird going on in the mobo).

    You're surely stable with 1 card?
  12. Yea im totaly stable with one card....... Iv ran Furmark for a while and ran prim95 and mem test all on one card no problem.... My PSU is 700w OCZ extreme, kinda old like 4 years old....... I honestly think its a mobo problem cuz I was running SLi befor with my gtx 285 no problem... But when I freakin tryed to overclock I screwed up something.... And know It wont allow me to run SLI........
  13. GTX 285 SLI is quite a task for a 700w PSU with 4 years of capacitor aging.

    Do you have a friend with a capable PSU that you can try? I'm guessing its the PSU rather than the mobo. OCing you CPU could have pushed your power supply a bit too far.

    SLI caused instability sounds too random from OCing your CPU/RAM/QPI.
  14. Really........O k..... i like your suggestion.... Im glad that my situation seemd a little bit off and that yo offered some insight. Well I am going to try and Buy a newer power supply.... I was urious if overclocking can disrupt a power supply and maybe that is just what has happened from the Overclocking........ I think I will start looking around........ And possibly add the Gtx 480 too!!! or a SSD..... I love shopping for CPU stuff.............. In the meantime Thankx Raidur.... I am dead in the water till i get a new PSU............
  15. Ok so I just bought a 1200W antec powersupply and tryed to run SLI configuration with my graphic cards and thy still wouldnt run in SLI config. My guess is that i blew something on the MOBO and now It wont allow me to Run SLI....... Great......
  16. Best answer
    Sorry man... That does sound like MOBO :( (What brand is it?)
    Atleast now you have a kick ass power supply for your next build...

    Unlucky And Good Luck :D
  17. Hey everybody.... So it was my MOBO, I fryed my north bridge. Lesson learned.... Dont overlclok unless using a overclockers board with very adequate cooling.
