    use this to find what made system crash http://www.resplendence.com/whocrashed
  3. I found I had BSODs when my processor's (E6700) UCore voltage was set at auto. I changed it to the average of what it says on it's specs, and the BSODs went away.
  4. I have windows 7,
    AMD phenom II X4 960T w/ stock cooling
    GTS 450
    4GB 1600 kingston RAM

    So it is surely a hardware problem then right? Seeing that it only comes when im gaming im starting to believe something is overheating, but i have been observing my CPU temperature and under full load it never goes higher than 60c. Which is a lot though for an AMD processor.

    Im not sure if this is related, but whenever my computer enters sleep mode and then when i wake the computer up, the CPU doesnt fully recover from the sleep mode. As in, the multiplier starts bouncing rapidly between 17 and 4, making using the computer horribly slow, but i have always just opened the "AsRock extreme tuner" software that came with the mobo and upped the multiplier back to 17 to fix the problem.
  5. Is your BIOS up to date?
  6. Nope.
  7. Update it :)
  8. Im kind of wary about updating my BIOS, are there other possible causes for this?
  9. did you try to unlock the cpu to get a 6 cores one that also could do that is start at 4 aand run back at 17x
  10. Actually yes, i did try it, but the temps were horrendous so i shut it down almost immediately.
  11. the reset your bios to default settings using your board user manual that should fix the 4 and 17 x issue
  12. Uhh... Now that i started thinking it was actually on my last board that i had attempted to unlock on. You see my previous board mysteriously broke and i RMAd it and now i have a new one, or have had for 2 months. Sorry for the misinformation.

    I had some BSODs on the previous board also, also sometimes my screen goes completely black and then the image returns with a message that the video card drivers had crashed if that has relevance.

    I have tried to turn off all power saving features from BIOS to remove the jumping multi issue but to no avail.
  13. do you have another video card for test or does the board got onboard video also this from microsoft http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff557321%28v=vs.85%29.aspx
  14. if you have thermal remove the coller clean the old one and repaste also did you peel the little plastic protector on the bottom of the cooler whe you first install it
