Hi,

My PC recently crashes a lot, and some times I get BSOD. Dumps attached in a zip file. Any help appreciated.

Thanks,
Levente

Mate,

It looks like you need to update you video driver. There are other crashes not related to the video driver, but lets start with the video driver.

Also please uninstall RivaTuner/EVGA Precision/MSI Afterburner. That software is known to cause crashes.

Thanks for the response.
The video driver is up to date, I'm checking that regularly. However yesterday I tried to install a few stuff to monitor hardware temperatures and other things, and somehow the PC got unusable, it freezes after a few minutes no matter what I do. I'll try to uninstall Riva/Afterburner, and see if that fixes anything, but I see a Windows reinstall coming up my way... Anyway I'm happy if it's not a hardware failure.

I'll post results later, as I'm in the office at the moment.

Cheers,
Levente

Mate,

Then the next thing to do is to uninstall the current driver and install an older driver.
Sometimes the older driver is more stable.

I restored system to an earlier state, then uninstalled RIVA, Afterburner, and everything related to graphic card. Then removed the video drivers from device manager and made it check for hardware updates to get the drivers again. Now it seems to work, I'll run some stress tests later (try to play games :p)

Just a note, I have an SSD for system drive and it magically disappeared (there was no C: drive) in the middle of some install. I shut down the PC, took it apart to check connectors, then it was working again. Don't know if you experienced anything like this.

I'll post again later if anything happens.

Thanks!

That could be a combination of the SSD firmware and/or the motherboard BIOS.
It really depends on when the hardware was made.
Firmware with SSD's used to a pain, but they have recently gotten better.

Hi,

I played for a few hours, and no freezes, no blue screens. It seems okay for now.
Thanks for the help!
