I keep getting these blue screens that i don't know how to fix, they happen like every 10 minutes or something, i keep getting this report from bluescreen viewer, can someone fix this for me? :
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: ntoskrnl.exe

KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware
or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart
your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then
select Safe Mode.

Also i want to add reports from all these other programs but i don't know how to attach them

did you overclock your processor..?

well, apparently not...non k version..:D 

bccode: 1e usually about too low processor voltage..

watch your bios and check your processor voltage..

Did it stop BSODs after you re-installed GPU drivers? How are your temps?
Section 3 in your Manual seems to deal with OC and Voltages...

what should i change the core voltage to? Currently it is on auto. Also i'm not sure if it was reinstalling the gpu drivers that fixed the bsod, because when i had it uninstalled and was downloading the driver installer from the net i got bsod multiple times. Also, my temps right now are:
systin: 25 degrees celcius
CPUtin: 29
Auxtin: 49
TMPin3: 35
Gpu: 32
and my cpu cores are around 30

If you get no more BSODs leave well alone, but if you do, try taking the CPU core voltage out of auto, and increase a step at a time to see if it improves...

yeah i got another bluescreen, this time bluescreen viewer said it was the driver dxgmms1.sys that caused it. I'll try increasing my core volts by 50mv using the offset thing

okay, i got another bluescreen, upping it to +100mv . this time caused by ntoskrnl.exe
EDIT: still got a bluescreen, gonna try upping to voltages to my gpu seeing as +100mv seems to be the highest
EDIT2: didn't get a bluescreen, but i did get a pure black screen, gonna try upping gpu voltages by +100mv, is there anything else i should increase?
Edit3:got another bluescreen, it seems a sure fire way to get a blue screen is to play saints row the third for a bit. Not sure what to do now. I set the voltages back to auto.

well, i get crashes when i play sims 3 and dead island, but they aren't BSODs, they're just black screen lock ups.

Time to look elsewhere. Take out a stick of RAM at a time to see if that helps, also try them in different slots.

Next check your disk for errors.
'Start', type cmd Rt click CMD in Programs, 'Run as administrator'
type chkdsk /f/r then Enter (Note space after chkdsk)
Could take a while, and may want to run on next restart
Note exit codes if poss

I set it to do a disk check but when i restart it and it's starting to do the disk check, it says it can't because of an error caused by some newly installed thing, i couldn't read the rest of it because it flashed too fast for me to see. I do know there was some code there though.

Hmmm. Starting to look like a disk problem or a corrupt Windows Install. Check disk 1st as re-install a pain...(Upgrade to Win 8 and hope it solves the problem, plus Win 8 has a 'Refresh Windows' option that re-installs core components of Windows without losing your data...)
Try running Seatools for Windows

Andif you can't, Seatools for DOS, but you'll have to download and create a disk

Another good diagnostic tool is Clean Startup, basically boots your system with essentials then you introduce items a bit at a time to find a corrupt process.
