help i have a less than 2 month old pc having blue screens while in game memtest said ram was fine new hard drive fresh install works fine besides just random blue screens i recently switched from on board to an hd 6870 hawk msi card and new powersupply worked great for a week now blue screens that have me stumped ive been thinking the power supply i bought is junk but no real way to test it cause i get stable high framerates in game no overheating then screen goes blank then blue screen reboot lol im stumped at this one help!
If it only happens in games it's an indication of either the PSU not supplying enough power, or the GPU is unstable in some way. Is your GPU overclocked at all? How about your CPU? What PSU do you have?
i have a 1090t six core amd 3.2 ghz 3.7 turbo i have 8g 1600 mhz ddr3 ram win 7 64 and power supply i have is a best buy corsair gs700. nothing is over clocked all drivers are up todate gpu withstands stress testing stable at 100% gpu load 69C so not to hot im truely stumped but my best guess is the power supply is dropping voltage
Never use the drivers that come with your video cards. They should just stop adding them in the boxes altogether. Your psu is fine. Corsair makes a great product and you have almost enough power with that to run 2x 6870s.
right well i should add i took out the video card and ran on internal graphics and it still crashed blue screen and all when i personally know my onboard works fine with old power supply all these problems started with psu and vid card with vid card out its still crashing but never did until i upgraded psu and vid card
it saves mini dump files but that getting outa my league to be honest mind you no issues until i install new psu and vid card vid card has tested good leaves me with only one choice right imma swap psu out today with a new one from best buy and just check that since its a no cost remedy then will post new results any additional thoughts help!
The event viewer is just a running log of system events, application events, and any errors that my occur. If there is an error that is causing the BSOD, it should be logged in the viewer. All you have to do, is look for the red X, and click on it. It's not a dump file.
Updating the video driver is also a free and quick option.
new power supply in went for 5 mins in bf3 and blue screen 3b so problem is persistant so far i have already replaced with new harddrive and power supply new cables through out on inside ive re seated my memory memtested all were fine only thing i can thing of is the damn vid card but it still blue screens on onboard video hmmmm something software or cpu or mobo...
the event log has no problems its fn wierd its like its running fine but ive read online that my mobo has lots of known problems with the chipset so im kinda looking into sending this one back and putting in a new mobo
all my drivers are up to date the bios isnt i cant get the tool to work on my machine to update them neither can a friend of mine asus is broken atleast the update tools are on top of that this mobo is known for chipset failures and graphics issues plus ive gone through everystep all drivers uninstalls rebooted instal rebooted still same issues im just in need of my pc for work and need the fast fix
UPDATE replaced a mobo with one shown above the old one looked and felt cracked on the memory corner possibly from the case flexing while being moved but never the less problem solved running non overclocked single gpu ati and getting a good avg of 60 fps in bf3! works great but man was it difficult to find out
