I recently bought a new motherboard, CPU and RAM. Then I installed Windows 7 64bit and Windows 7 32bit in dual boot because the TV tunner doesn`t have drivers for 64bit. It worked well for 1 week after windows installation then I started to get random BSODs, screen freezing, restarts, crashes random like it could appeared in a game, while watching a video on the web or just Sometimes BSODs and crashes were acompaniated by a distorsioned sound from speakers. I updated my graphics drivers, I uninstalled Ntune which I suspected, I uninstalled Virtualbox, I done everythig to solve this but nothing.... until now. Now I started to suspect the video card so I removed it and now I`m on the integrated video card and no freeze, no BSOD, no crash, no reset... Could the video card be the cause??
mobo: p5g41t-m lx
ram: 4gb ddr3 kingmax 1333mhz (works on 800mhz)
cpu: Intel pentium dual core e5700 3.0ghz
video card: Asus Nvidia Geforce 8500gt 256MB DDR3
tv tuner: KWorld PVR-TV 878
well, old as it is, it can handle well games like Skyrim, Gta 4, Just Cause 2, L.A Noire etc at medium settings, I can play Skyrim even on high-ultra. But yeahh, it can be too old, but still if anyone knows other solution...
I get no artifacts, I tested it yesterday with furmark, no crash, I tortured it, no crush, the games runs fine but then suddently: BSOD, FREEZE, RESTART... goshh...
I ran memtest and it`s all ok, anyway I removed the video card and tryird it on my cousin`s PC and it`s working with no problems, I guess it`s just a driver colflicts or something like that... I must mention that BSODs and this stuffs occured after I made the dual boot ( Win 7 32bit and Win7 64bit ). Before that all was ok, maybe those operating sistems are in conflict somehow and that causes the problem... strange. With IGP pc works like a charm! I`ll try with another HDD maybe dual booting is the problem, just guessing...
