Any other info I should include? Temps are fine everywhere, GPU is never over 55*C. It is at 99% load according to GPU-Z. I deal w/ground herbs and there is dust, but it's not significant IMO and I was under the impression dust issues carried temp issues. Driver is up to date on the GPU...
Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt.
Do this for each hard drive on your system.
When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter.
Then reboot and let the test run.
It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors.
See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.
Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"
Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application log file entry.
Double click on the Source column header.
Scroll down the list until you find the Chkdsk entry (wininit for Win7) (winlogon for XP).
Copy/paste the results into your next post.
My pleasure.No dmp file. No BSOD. The screen goes checkerboard w/artifacts and is unresponsive, forcing a reboot. If there's a log file generated when that happens that you'd like to see let me know the name. I appreciate the help once again.
Type eventvwr in search and go to the windows log>application tab.
Look for errors. Errors have red in the left hand column.
Look for errors that say app hang, or app crash, or anything related to YOUR problem.
When you find them either take a screenshot of them and upload them to us, or note the event ID and source codes and look them up in google. If you cant find them in google tell us what they are.
All I'm finding from last night is a WMI event id 10:
Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.
Don't think that's related. Sigh, I'll keep checking logs and loading dmps as they come.
