[solved]vComputer constantly crashing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok so like the title says my computer keeps crashing almost every 1 to 2 hours under load during games. On desktop it's fine but in games it crashes. The only changes i've made so far aare installing my v8 cooler and installing the new 280 drivers from nvidia.

First I thought it was the drivers so I uninstalled them and install 266.58 and it is still happening. Backed down my gpu's oc and it is still happening. CPU is at stock and to make sure it was not voltage related i gave it a very slight voltage boost.


Please help.

EDIT: It doesn't crash it just freezes

What drivers were you running before you started having the problem? 266.58?

Did you do a "clean" install of the drivers?

Before I started having problems I was using 266.58. It seems like the problems started after I installed the 280.XX drivers. But I reverted back to 266.58 with a clean install and when I was installing it said install failed so i restarted it and tried installing again. When I got to the custom settings page i didn't select clean install because it said that my current drivers were "none"

Bump!

So it would appear that the drivers had nothing to do to it as I driver sweepered the drivers and reinstalled the working drivers . So I thought, maybe it is my temps.

I just installed my new CM V8 and according to HWMonitor my temp were around 23c~25c idle then when I played BC2 for 2 hours they went up to 33c.

But I went to bios after about 20 minutes of COD 4 and my temps were reported at 40c IN BIOS. So now i'm kinda mad because I paid ~$40 for this cooler thinking to myself "$40 for this MASSIVE cooler this will be great!" But alas it isn't preforming well. I put 2 relatively high RPM fans on both sides of it and the one on the right is blowing air across my ram because to the touch the ram was quite warm.

Also bios reported my CPU's voltage a 1.44 in bios...so i don't even want to know what it is during load. Maybe that is why my temps were so high. I lower the vcore to 1.41 in bios and it is idleing at that now.

Also mind you that EVERYTHING is at stock apart from my GPU. Which is both OCCT and F@H stable. But to be careful I lowered the clocks a tad and I rechecked all the power connections.

What should I do? Do I remount my cooler? I do have my mobo in a homemade tech bench till I get enough money to buy a legitimate one. And idk if there might be possible shorting happening or the motherboard is warping or something.

Please help.

remove, and replace tim, reseat after placeing a small dot in center, slightly twisting before tightening down hsf... be sure to only tighten till it gets snug, then give a quarter turn more for good measure... reset to complete stock settings, let tim "cure" with sufficient power cycles bringing cpu to room temp for about an hour before fireing up again... check for system freeze... if all is normal, try your oc settings again and go from there.. hope that helps

I did do that and problems persisted. I've decided that i'm just going to upgrade a few things and reinstall windows and see if that does it. It is time for an upgrade
