PC Randomly Shuts Off During RAM Intensive Applications - Page 10

post #91 of 155
Thread Starter 
OK. So I'm just about ready to rip my own hair out.

Put the card back into slot one... it did this:

But I ran Sims 3 (the game that crashed the most) for half an hour with AIDA64 kickin' away in the background... NO crash.

WHY is this happening? When I want it to crash now... it won't. Maybe it was seated wrong before?

When I took the card out to run on the onboard graphics the first time, it installed a lot of extra drivers. Was I supposed to have the onboard drivers installed while using the card as well... and now it's fixed?

I have two RMA's pending now... and I can't seem to find anymore problems.

Correct, using onboard video most likely installed the nVidia High Definition onboard audio for panel in/outputs whilst the GPU is HDMI, speakers, etc. It's normal to have that many instances of audio

Also, crashes are random, so it doesn't necessarily mean you're in the clear. Play around for awhile and keep me updated. It'd be pretty funny if using the onboard installed drivers you needed for something you have connected to your front panel for audio or whatever it may be tongue.gif

Ok, I'll keep using it.

It's just that before I would load Sims 3 and play for 10 minutes, and on the dot it would crash.

Not it's working so Im just confused and frustrated, that's all.

I am still very grateful that you are helping me.

It's my pleasure, really. I just had a brain swelling issue with my rig lately, so I know how it is. If your crashes were pretty fast earlier and you're not getting them now, hopefully you're in the clear. However, as you know, BSODs are random and they happen when they want to. Just play around and do what you do and see what happens.

The BSOD is the least occurring crash. The majority of them were screen going black, G13 turning off, fans blasting and completely powering off.

I was not aware of those other issues, those sound like motherboard issues. Regardless, we'll see soon.

I mentioned it in post #55. But I went back to read all your previous posts and saw the sfc /scannow one... tried running it again and it actually made it past 9% this time. I think I may go back and redo everything now that I've reseated my card to see if I can see anything.

Still no crashes as of now.

Update: SFC finished and asked me to reboot to repair errors and to run again as it was unable to process all the errors at once.

I rebooted and ran again, it got to 100% but failed and left the CBS log. Would you mind checking it for me? I filtered the SFC results.

Wow, the amount of corrupted files that were unable to be repaired listed in that log is absurd. When was the last time you reformatted?

I had issues with the Marvell SATA controller on an Asus x58 board a few months ago.

Which controller is your boot SSD attached to? If it's attached to the Marvell, can you move it to the Intel and see if it helps? I think the Intel sata 6 ports are grey, and the Marvell ports are dark blue on your motherboard. It seems like you're progressively corrupting files, which is odd.

EDIT:
Yeah, to be more specific: My aunt's pc would randomly restart when using Photoshop or Premiere Pro. We replaced PSU and graphics card, and were getting ready to RMA the motherboard. Memtested repeatedly. The hint was she booted from a linux live disk, and had no issues. Thought maybe it was her HDD, but tried moving the SATA cable. She moved from the Marvell to the ICH10R controller and all her problems went away. Technically she should still RMA the motherboard since the Marvell controller of screwed, but she's happy just having it work. It's definitely worth checking, but it's just another idea. Good luck man.

Good advice. And yes, I am stumped... there are a staggering amount of corrupted / unrepairable files in that log. Definitely OS corruption at its finest, but from what is what I want to know.
