I recently purchased a new mobo, heat sink, cpu and ram (details below.) The build went fine and it boots right away, installed Win 7 Home Premium and updated:
Graphics Card Driver
When I try to run certain Steam games it crashes and reboots the whole PC. If I run a game I install off disc it seems to run fine, Witcher 2 ran for a few hours last night and had no issues (ran like a dream.) Some steam games work (Trine1, Hard Reset) while most don't (Homefront, Dead Rising 2 ect.) I've been googling a bit to try and determine the issue, and now have recieved a few BSOD while in Windows, not running a game!
I've received BCode:
I'm trying to open my minidump files but can't get the right program to do so installed (BSOD last time I tried to install.) Can anyone offer any assistance in this mess? I was hoping for a long weekend of gaming rather than troubleshooting, but of course any build comes with the ups and downs!
Gigabyte 970A-UD3 mobo
AMD FX 4 CPU
OCZ 850watt PSU (from previous build)
16gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3 ram
Coolermaster 212 Heatsink/fan
I downloaded HWmonitor and all temps seem fine, I'm not OC'ing or pushing anything in the bios. I've removed all 4 sticks of ram and replaced just one and tried each stick individually. Thanks!
I updated the BIOS using the Gigabyte bios updated tool. The problem is it's only revision 4 that it self updates to, and checking their page on the 970A-UD3 there isn't a revision 7 out yet. Any ideas? I'm going to post the minidumps in a second!!!
