So I successfully (or so I thought) built my first custom gaming rig, however last night I begun to experience a blue screen after only 30 seconds of gaming.
Last night after a hard days work I decided to get back to Borderlands 2 which I bought through steam using a voucher I got free from my GPU. The night before I had no problems and spent about 2 hours happily gaming away without a hitch. As soon as I was in the game and about to set off, it crashed. I Googled this as it persisted a few times and found that I had to verify the integrity of the files through my steam loader, which I did and still had the same issue occur.
I then tried minecraft as it is surely a less bulky game which also after about 30 seconds gave up a blue screen this time, not ideal. When it rebooted I tried again but crashed and exited due to a Java issue. Please note that I am using the Java 7 64 Bit version as it did say to do so in the options panel.
I have been quite careful in installing correct drivers and have since seen that phys x drivers maybe the cause for Borderlands 2 but I have checked that I have the latest driver there so am stumped.
The only discrepancy in my system is the PCI Communications Controller which has thrown up a yellow exclamation mark. I have installed the correct Intel Chipset or at least I thought I have done (Version 22.214.171.1246). last night before I switched my PC on I also had plugged in my 2TB hard drive into the second 6 G'Bits connection on my motherboard and had to move my SSD drive to the back connection as per the cable management, but I dont think in doing this it would have thrown up any problems would it?
Please also note that I have fully updated the bios at day one of powering the system up, but I dont think this is the cause of the problem.
Can anybody shed some light as to what I can do to rectify this issue as I found it strange that it was not happening 2 nights ago. Are there any test I can perform which will show in more light what I have possibly not installed correctly?
