BSOD on BF3?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So ive gotten 3 BSOD on bf3, first and second time were about weeks apart, I figured it was just because i forgot to turn up my case fans, but the third time happened right after second with case fans maxed. Possibly gpu getting to hot maybe? I had the fans on auto but the gpu only got to 70C. I stress tested GPU and it maxed at 65C because i put fans to 70%, and CPU topped out at 40C on Asus suite and 52C on core temp, with stock clocks. Should I just always keep my fans on GPU at 70% while gaming? Also BSOD does not harm any hardware either right?

Thanks a lot for the help

What is the bccode that displays when you get the bluescreen? Check event viewer for the critical/warning errors if you can't remember.

You was using any OSD program? because a friend of mine was having bluescreens or hard lock blackscreen and he disabled MSI afterburner and now his playing fine.

Are all your drivers up to date, all peripheral drivers included?

Is legacy USB support enabled in the BIOS?

Is punkbuster up to date?
EDIT: We'll get to that stuff later...

Unplug all unnecessary hardware from the system and leave only the keyboard, mouse and monitor plugged in. Make an attempt to recreate the scenario to narrow down the cause of the problem. This might be quite difficult if the BSODs aren't consistent enough when they occur. A few BSODs here and there isn't something to worry about.

P.S. and the BugcheckCode 126 is in decimal and is supposed to be converted to Hexidecimal to determine the code. The hex conversion of 126 is 7e.

Alright I'll see if it happens again after I unplug second monitor. Other than that all I have is speakers and an xbox controller plugged in. If it makes a difference I didn't have this problem on my old system with the same gpu, and like I said this has only happend 3 times in about 2 weeks so I dont think its a huge deal. I'll check if it happens again and thanks thumb.gif

It happened again :[ Could it be possibly because i didnt have service pack 1 installed for Windows 7 yet? I guess it didnt do it in the auto updates untill just now. And is there a service pack 2 out yet or no? Idk if this could cause my game to become unstable.

Also I had xbox 360 controller plugged into USB 3.0 in front if that makes a difference? Idk lol

Would looking at the dumps help me find out what the problem is?

Also I had a second hard drive with a backup installed, but it also had xp on it. When I unplugged and started windows it said it was configuring my settings? Idk if that has to do with anything lol ill test again without it
