hey guys...I just upgraded the graphics card on my old rig and I'm getting frequent bsods
I upgraded from 7100gs(in know ancient) to HD 5670..I also added a gig of ram
as of now my specs are
amd athalon 64x2 6000+
Jetway m26gt3-svp(integrated 6100)
450w rtech(local brand) psu
transcend ddr2 667mhz sdram single channel
his HD 5670 1gb ddr3
Hitachi 160gb hdd(pretty old)
realtek Ethernet port pci.(yes I have two Ethernet ports)
win 7 32bit
I use this pc at 1440x900 reso Max
I've updated the drivers of the graphic cards....(and yes I used driver sweeper in safe mode to remove previous drivers)
now sometimes the bsod appears while normally operating the pc(only twice till now)
but most of the times while gaming
mostly while playing skyrim, pop tfs
DMC 4 runs well and so does mw2
all the games play at high settings at 40fps except for sky rim which plays at medium 40fps
I just want to know if there is any hardware incompatibility or what
and is it my graphic card
or my ram
I know u would need the .dmp file but I won't be able to access that pc for at least a week...so will put the .dmp file later..
it could be the psu. old, generic psus run out of juice faster than good ones. components age faster due to usage.
is it possible to use a different psu on the pc and test during gaming - especially a good one, with around 32A or more on the +12v rail.
well i have run the furmark gpu stress test
and i had overclocked my processor earlier but i retured it to stock clocks before ugrading the card as i was sure the psu would not be able to handle it
gamerk316 its pci e v 1.6 in cpu z it states that it runs the x16 at x8 dunno what the hell it means
havent yet tested the memory...
and as i said i wont be able to access that pc for a while now ill upload he .dmp files once i get my hand on it
and geekapproved i know i should have built the sysytem with a better psu but man cut me some slack it was ages ago and this was my first build ive used coolermaster psu for my later builds...thanks guys anyways i will upload the .dmp file as soon as possible
one more thing should i lock the thread and make anew thread or the .dmp file or should i keep it open until its all sorted out.
STOP 0x124: WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR. This typically means a hardware component ended up dieing. This typically means a hardware fault, but bad drivers can cause the problem as well.
STOP 0x7F: UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP, which basically means something really messed up the system; I'd need more info the properly debug this one, but points to either RAM, drivers, or a busted hardware component [GPU, etc]
Not really enough to come to a direct conclusion yet, though I'd lean towards a hardware fault.
amdk8.sys, atikmdag.sys, halmacpi.dll, ntkrnlpa.exe are the cause of the 0x7f error
and halmacpi.dll, ntkrnlpa.exe cause the 0x124 error
and Unknown_Module_00000005 Unknown_Module_00000005+11f 0x00000005 0x94ca8005 0x94ca8000 0x00000000 sometimes for the 0x124 error
and sometimes rarely Unknown_Module_011dfe6f Unknown_Module_011dfe6f+18afbe6 0x011dfe6f 0x587a9c3e 0x575c9dcf 0x00000000
, CI.dll, PSHED.dll
atikmdag is part of the main ATI driver suite, which points squarely at the GPU. halmacpi is part of the hardware abstraction layer [specifically, the ACPI power settings], which points to a problem with a hardware component.
Probably a driver issue then, though its possible the GPU itself has a problem. Try upgrading your GPU drivers, and if you still have problems, test with another GPU if you have one.
