BSOD on new build Windows 7 64-bit

I built this rig 3 weeks ago. Never had any glitches or problems. Just randomly today while web browsing I got a BSOD. I don't know how to access the BSOD files to see the cause. Can someone please help me troubleshoot, i've never dealt with this before. I don't overclock just so everyone knows. I ran prime 95 for about an hour with all passes and perfect temps. Please help.

    I analyzed via whocrashed and it said i have 2 minidump logs on 1/20/2013...why is that date wrong? I can't read details without buying the professional version too.
  3. Ok I used a different program and got these readings.


    Dump File: 011913-16036-01.dmp

    Bug Check String: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    Bug Check Code: 0x000000d1

    Caused by Driver: L1C62x64.sys
  4. Can someone please help me troubleshoot the BSOD readings I just posted.

    No it was just once (so far). I updated the atheros ethernet driver via gigabytes website. Hopefully its fixed. This is definitely a ethernet driver error and not a hardware error or anything of that nature right? I only ask because Im still under warranty with these parts so I want to find the source of this issue asap. BTW thanks for responding
  6. I would say driver IMO.
  7. Ok I'm praying that's all it is. Any idea why this happened? I could have sworn I had the latest drivers prior to this BSOD...
  8. Not sure,but i hope it keeps running smooth.

    If it recurs in the future you may have to consider a hardware issue, it's not unheard of, but you may have to prove the rest of your setup before RMA-ing your Board. Driver most likely, but if you start getting random BSODs there may be a breakdown occurring elsewhere. Just have to wait and see!

    Thanks for the info lets just hope it was just the driver lol, I'll keep updating this thread if it happens again.
  12. If anybody else has any ideas for the cause of this BSOD please feel free to post. So far I've gotten some great responses.

    Its a new PC and only 3 weeks old as you mentioned. This is normal for New Builds and there is nothing to worry about now.

    It is purely a driver issue and you will just have to give it time. Eventually all or the most important drivers will be update via Windows update or other sources.

    Its a good practice to check your hardware OEM websites at least once every 6 months for updates.
