Hi, I've been getting BSOD passed month . It happens within first few minutes of starting up computer normally but when i can get it going it will be fine until next time i restart my computer. The times i am about to get the BSOD when booting up the computer seems to be running sluggish. I have a picture of the screen. Ive tried fresh install of windows, formatted hardrive, reinstalled drivers for graphics card and MB multiple times. I can boot in safe mode fine though and i wont get the BSOD. If im in the wrong forum to post this i can move it too there also. Wasn't sure which forum to post this in. Any help would be appreciated.

windows 7 64 bit
I5-3570k cpu at 3.4g
8 gigs ddr3
p8z 68-v LX mobo
HiS radeon 7850 HD

Sounds like a drivers problem (most BSOD are drivers related). Unfortunately the picture you shared isn't loading for me. Sometimes in the first line of the blue screen it will give you information about what drivers caused the crash (if you can get a filename for example you can find to what drivers it's related). I have a feeling it could be a chipset or disk controller drivers. I had some issues with my previous motherboard when I was installing the latest chipset drivers they were highly unstable so I had to revert back to older drivers and never had a blue screen again after that. I don't know if you use Intel Rapid Storage as your disk controller drivers, but I also happened to have a problem with this on another computer recently, in this case it was the opposite I was using a dated driver and upgrading to the latest version of Intel Rapid Storage solved the issue.

Best of luck.

temps are fine, could it still be driver issue even though its been running fine for about 5 months and just started having this problem?

make sure your mb has the newest bios.there been a lot of cpu and ram updates for the x68 and z77 line of asus mb. in your mb bios make sure xmd ram speed is turned on. make sure the ram is seated and in the right slots. i would run memtest to see if there a bad dimm.

If you don't get anywhere with the BIOS updates etc, I would try taking a look at your Event Logs and see if there's anything noted there.

I think moricon is right, every BSOD I've ever had was because of RAM. Try some different RAM.

What is your storage config? HDDs? SSDs? RAID arrays? SSD caching?

Can you be a bit specific with your Ram Details please ?

"8 gigs ddr3" doesn't help much

Can you upload the minidump somewhere? (located in your C:\Windows\Minidump folder, just get the latest one).
