Ok i just updated my win 7 software when i went to go watch a bluray movie i get a bluescreen evrytime and it says hardware failure. Never expierenced this problem before the update and cannot solve issue on my own. Anyone have any ideas on what my root problem is?
i did not upgrade to win 7 original os from build a couple months back. Not connected to net all the time so i just did the microsoft updates for win 7 that were available and ever since then i get a bluescreen only when playing bluray and nothing else. Games musice all play fine and have no issues only when playing bluray. Thats why im perplexed at wht the problem is. Played blurays fine one day no issues did the update from microsoft and got home and bluescreen hardware failure. I am trying to avoid doin a system restore to before the update but unless i get some ideas on what my issue might be that looks like my best option
I am using powerdvd that came with my bluray drive. My setup is i7-930 at 3.0ghz, GTX 470 gpu, 6gb of gskill 1600mhz cas 7 ram, corsair 750w psu. My temps max out at about 65 degrees celsius, core temps under stress/load test get up to 75. I cant figure out if it was the driver update for my 470 that caused the problem or the win7 update that did it but im going step by step to find the root of the problem by loading the win7 update without the gpu driver update and vice-versa.
I dont know all of it, but im running win7 ultimate, just did a full system update yesterday, and watched a blueray last night without any problems, so that leads me to think its the 470 driver update... just an fyi
..although i do not use powerdvd, i use VLC media player. I dont know if that matters.
