I as of late have started to get some annoying BSOD crashes. I have tried updating Drivers but i still crash a few times a week while playing some Games like Boarderlands 2, Torchlight 2 and Minecraft.
I was able to pull my dump file and extract it. This is what i get from the !analyze -v
A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the
WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon.
Arg1: 0000000000000004, PCI Express Error
Arg2: fffffa80086e78d8, Address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure.
A WHEA error is explicitly a H/W error, typically caused by either a shoddy PSU, CPU not getting enough voltage, or overheating. Check temps and ensure CPU voltages are normal. If OCing, remove the OC.
This error is caused by the graphics card, It could be that there is a problem with your graphics driver or that you have a hardware problem with your graphics card or power supply. Ensure that you have SP1 installed and all of the updates including the optional compatibility updates. Install the video driver that came with the CD you got with the graphics card. If this fails to fix the problem then you have a hardware problem.
Voltage and temps are all normal. I already have Win 7 SP1 installed and the drivers for my graphics card are up to date. As for optional comparability updates I think i got them all installed.. When i look at my windows update list the only things I have not downloaded are Bing and IE9. I have a Radeon 5700 that is 2 years old at this point. So if its just a upgrade to the vid card to fix my issues then I am cool with that.
