Is there any way I can send you a list from my Event Viewer? It's strictly my fault, but I don't let the dump finish a lot of the time, you'd otherwise be seeing a LOT more.Not all the DMPs, but some, mention your video driver so I suggest you at least update that at NVidia if available:
nvlddmkm.sys 7/2/2014 12:42:25 PM and see if it helps.
But most important, make sure you are using the proper settings & voltage for your RAM and then run memtest86+ to see if you have bad memory chips.
Alright, here you go, Slots 3 & 4 are not being used, so there's no data.Find a copy of CPU-Z and run it. screenshot the memory tab, then screenshot the spd tab for each slot of RAM
I'll run Memtest tomorrow, but here's a copy of my Event Viewer, filtered to show only BugChecks. There's 117 of them (some duplicates) starting last May (There were more pre-May, but I probably formatted or something, I forget)I didn't reply to the event viewer because I don't know what to suggest. Is there something you see that seems off? If so post a screen shot.
Your RAM settings look correct as long as in your BIOS it is set to 1.5Volts but I would suggest running Memtest86+ overnight to check the RAM for errors if you have always had this issue since you bought/built/or changed RAM in the machine.
Depends on what you mean by 'new'The events pretty much just say a DMP was created or it wasn't. It's the DMPs that actually have the real information.
Is this a new computer that always had trouble or an old computer with recent problems?
New computers check for bad RAM. Old computer w/ new probs should be scanned for viruses.
Updating your drivers is always a good idea.
I know it's not viruses, I've always been clean in that area. And I don't know if it's always been fine but there's no way to check now. All I know is it apparently got worse.Basically, if it worked fine a year and you have not added/changed RAM then it is probably not a memory problem so then you look at drivers and viruses.
Updated everything I could, will be running Windows Update at some point as well, to see if it catches anything else. Also uninstalled my webcam, I don't use it anyway. Did have a bluescreen when I was first trying to install the video card driver, but I did manage to get everything updated (if it needed to be)Well that's good. Look at updating your drivers. Go to the manufacturer of the video card and update that, go to the computer or mobo manufacturer and update those drivers, and go to the manufacturers of any peripherals and update those.
