BSOD when playing games

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
ok so 1 month ago i was getting a whole load of BSOD'd and thanks to your help, leading me to RMA my gpu, new one is back, installed and im still getting freezing.

it will freeze, the screen will turn black and i'll have too soft shut it down.

a couple of times it didn't want to display anything when turned on and the screen will go into standby mode.

i tested the ram and found a dead dimm, moved the ram to the next pair of dimms and all was well.

the after playing skyrm for a couple of hours it did it again. this time removing and putting the ram back in the same slots solved it.

i noticed in the bios that the ram speed was set lower than the ram is so set it right.

and then it did it again..... and started up fine this time.

ran memtest and found no problems, ran the built in windows memory checker and that found no porblems.


in the solution centre the last crash was this

Most likely mobo/mobo pci-e slot problem.

Any ideas on how to fix? Or is it RMA time again? could it be a software issue?
post #4 of 7
I hate to be captain obvious, but you replaced that bad memory module, right?

Also, you've turned off all overclocks? Both on GPU and CPU, and tried it totally stock for awhile? I myself was getting some real Nast CTDs and BSODs last night from an unstable CPU oc. It manifested weird too, as prime95 ran well for awhile, but real world means more and if you can't play a game prime95 means jack.

Further your Memory as well. If the memory is "wrong" in your bios and probably bought memory that's rated at overclock voltages/speeds. Perhaps your board cannot handle that. My memory was same problem: bought some Kingston hyperX 1600 and turns out its only 1600 at 1.65V OC'd.

In short: try all stock for a few days if you haven't already.

yea got all clocks at stock, apart from the GPU which is factory OC

following on from gunderman's post i swapped my GPU to another PCI-E, re-installed the drivers. and so far no crash. i double checked all the wires were plugged in properly aswell. "touch wood" though it may be ok

i have a feeling all the prefered slots on my board are dodgey, all the ones of the light grey colour (the fastest) as the RAM and GPU are now all in the brown slots.

also im just wondering if my PSU is up to the job. its a modular 650watt by corsair powering :-

i7 3770k
windforce 680 2gb
sabertooth z77
8gb corsair vengance.

Ive had a similar problem in the past, and it was a hard catch. My old 8800GT was, for whatever reason, only doing PCIE x1, not x16. I had to reseat the card to get it fixed. its harder to tell now a days with modern GPUs I've noticed, because 'it' (at least my GPU/mobo combo) automatically scales the lane down to x1 when its idling. Im definitely interested to see if that was the problem, although its probably impossible to know now if its working again.

I also have a 5 year old Xion 600W powering my 3570k in a gigabyte z77x-ud3h, 2 sticks of 4gb ddr3 1600mhz, an MSI 7850, SSD, 2 regular hdds, and 2 case fans. So while this does not guarantee YOUR psu is "fine", at least you can have a frame of reference for how many watts you "truly" need. Plus my psu is old, meaning it possibly is a bit below 600W by now.

Use this for a general idea of the PSU you'll need:

Thermaltake PSU calculator.

It shouldn't be taken as gospel, but should give you a good frame of reference. If it says lets say 430W (what it claims I need) you are most likely safe if you get a PSU within the 450-500W range. Although a bit more never hurt anyone. Just remember its not a totally precise calculator, despite it attempting to be. Take all "calculators" for pc parts, such as this, with a few grains of salt.

Regardless, I'm glad its all worked out !

how funny because it certenly seems to be that way.

ive had no problems since and its been more than enough time before one would of happened, (not too say that it wont but its looking good)

i'm a bit reluctant to try it back into the x16 slot as ive seen no preformance drop after going to the x1, but i may try it just to confim that that was the problem.

thanks for the info thought.

i shall use that calculator and make sure im above the recomended, just to be safe


thanks again.
