Random freezes and blackscreens - Page 2

post #11 of 22
I would check all drivers tbh, chipset, audio, network....the lot. Try running kombuster, furmark or other gpu stress test.

You have a mate who can lend you a psu, gpu to test??

I couldnt believe a simple out of date audio driver gave me so much grief, but it did!

Hope you get it sorted!!

I gotta go with bad memory here! Your only running 4Gb's in a X58 board? How come?

I would pull all but one stick, and run memtest, if that stick passes, continue on to the next, till you've checked all.

If you can borrow 6Gb's of triple channel DDR3, from a friend, that could save you some time!

With random freezing like your describing, the first thing I always check is the memory, and is usually the culprit 80% of the time!

Speedfan is just a bad monitoring program! Use a combination of CPUZ, GPUZ, RealTemp, and Everest Home

1. Make sure you have correctly input the timings and voltage for your ram modules
2. Did you check for stability with a sofware (Prime95, IBT, LinX, OCCT ...) ?
3. Download http://hcidesign.com/memtest/ and run the maximum ram you can and report for any errors found
From experience, I had bad ram modules which didn't give errors in Memtest + but did ered in HCImemest

W7 also has a memory diagnostic program, but not sure how well it works, I've never had a reason to use it.

One more thing I see. Are you sure that Scythe cpu cooler can keep your temps in check when @ 4GHz?
I know that i7 950 puts out some pretty good heat!!!

Speedfan sucks , it's a unplugged temp meter on the mobo.

It can keep up, but my pc isn't that quiet anymore , but it crashes while on stock speeds, so the temps are not a problem.

I actually have 6 gigs of memory, I entered it wrong on the system editor

But I ran a 3 passes memtest before and no errors whatsoever.

Will try to run some benchmarks/stress tests this afternoon.

It's called Event Viewer

If you could find the specific log and maybe, just maybe with the error code
(such as 0x00000126)


Also, if you've been trying to lower voltage at a high base clock, your overclock is just not stable, try a higher voltage also keeping temps low.

Try to find a way to cool your heat, like a push/pull config

I also noticed that you mentioned it was not a fresh install

Did you move a previous installation of W7 over?
Probably that's your problem, I'll try to update in a bit (playing Starcraft 2 lol)

In that case it is a fresh install, but with a lot of things installed en and lots of data copied from my old pc...

well in my experience with pc's turning on and off is that its usually a virus that causes it but i could be wrong id say just do a fresh install if it still gives problems then its probably a hardware problem eg graphics card(you said your screen goes black sounds like your graphics cards the problem)try take the card out and see if it still crashes.

I have ran some tests:

Memtest, again to be sure: 1 pass no errors.
Prime95: 1 hour no errors
3DMark: crash
Furmark: crash after, well counted, 7:05 minutes

So... I guess its my GPU then... /sadface/

Since I just spend all of my money in my ssd's I can't buy a new coord too soon. It still works, for now, so I'll just keep using this one for a while now.

What do you guys recommend? Buying the 5850 again, or going for something like a 6950? Oh, and will crossfiring this with a second 5850 make the chances for crashing smaller, or is it just a waste of money?

thanks for the support though!

Edit: I forgot about the opportunity of warranty/RMA to get meself a new 5850 card, I think that's the best option, right?
