PC Randomly Shuts Off During RAM Intensive Applications

post #1 of 155
Thread Starter 
Ok, I am at the point where I am going to lose my mind...

I have been having this issue where my PC will randomly get the BSOD or it would get a black screen and fans would all go crazy with no response, and now I'm having my computer just lose complete power altogether. It just shuts off mid application.

This is most often when doing several processes at the same time, or while doing media editing (After Effects and Vegas).

I have replaced my RAM, my PSU... I've monitored temps and they are all well below average. I've ran tests on Prime, removed all overclocks... I'm out of options here.

EVGA says the GPU is fine. I have a new SSD on the way so I will install a new copy of Windows and see if that does anything.

Is it possible it's the motherboard... or perhaps my CPU somehow? Maybe software?

Please help me!

Specs:

i7 2600K
H100 Cooler
Asus P8Z68-V Pro
16Gb Corsair Vengeance
Corsair AX850W
Crucial C300 64Gb SSD
WD 1.5Tb Caviar Green
WD 320Gb Caviar Blue
WD 1Tb Cavaiar Blue
EVGA GTX590 Classified

Hello! smile.gif

Can you please navigate to C:/Windows/Minidump and zip / rar up your latest dump files? Once you've done that, please attach the zip / rar to your post by clicking the paperclip icon in the reply / post box.

If there are no files there, you may have it set to writing Kernel Memory Dumps rather than Small. If so, the DMP will be located in C:/Windows itself and named MEMORY.DMP.

Minidump is empty and there are no files names MEMORY.DMP in Windows folder. sadsmiley.gif

I also did a search for the file in C:\ but nothing showed up.

I have a program called TuneUp Utilities that cleans all unnecessary files once in a while, perhaps it cleared those?

That would do it, yep. Utility programs and such clean dump files because they take up a ton of space over time. I'd tell your utility program not to do that, you can just manually delete them whenever you like.

So I guess I have to wait until my next dump. tongue.gif

Do you have any idea as to what it could be without seeing those files?

Not a clue, too many variables! tongue.gif

Ok, so I finally caught the BSOD, as it actually stayed on screen this time long enough to get a pic.

And I found the MEMORY.DMP file but it's over 600mb.

I guess that's the Kernel memory dump instead of the Small Dump File? :S

Right click on my computer, properties, advanced system settings, advanced tab, settings button under "startup and recovery," uncheck the automatically restart box.

That should make it so the blue screen just stays on the screen until you turn the computer off or hard reset. That way you don't have to scramble for your camera and can see if you're getting the same blue screens.

Also, in the event viewer in administrative tools you should be able to see a list of recent blue screens. Look for Critical events.

EDIT:
Also, E-peen could do a legit job actually looking at the dump. I can't do that.

A few ideas:
Run memtest. You will need to boot to it. I know you replaced your memory, but this would help you rule out your memory and to some extent your motherboard.
Also, try loading a linux live disk. Do not install it, but tinker with it for a few hours to see if you get random restarts, to help rule out your current OS install.
