Blue screen of death and Black Screen of death

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I built my computer about 3 months ago a couple of weeks in while playing a game the system froze up into a black screen and I simply restarted the computer and everything was fine. But here recently the crashes have ramped up a lot I have had a good bit of these black screen crashes as well as two blue screens this week.

The wierd thing is when I reboot the system everything is fine, I built this computer for gaming and it seems that these problems are only occuring in game.This has happened over several different games so im pretty sure it is not application specific. Although it seems to be based around problems with the system playing video games.

I have the CPU RAM and GPU OC but all three were extensively tested when I did them with memtest prime95 and several GPU Benchmark Stress tests so I feel like this shouldnt be causing the problem but I have no idea as I have never run into anything like this before. With this being said I have no clue what types of files would be helpful to add. But I have noticed that all three major crashes were at the same file address

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Then debug your bsod so we have a good indication of what it is. It sounds like a video card issue - driver, maybe heat? We can't help you without any information. Do you have the line from the bsod?

I dont have the code ill try to recreate the crash to get the code I doubt its a heat issue as I carefully monitor the heat the cpu never gets above 60 and GPU doesnt get any higher than 60 either. As far as more information I am happy to upload anything that would help I am just unfamiliar with this type of error so im not sure what would be helpful to add. Where is the BSOD debug in safe mode?

C:\Windows\Minidump

A crash dump will be named by date in there. You can download windows debugger to debug it and get all the information out of it smile.gif Very useful in diagnosing what went wrong.

Some games are just bad with gpu oc'ing, I'd get lots of crash to desktops, artifacts or just black screen forcing me to reboot. My bets on graphics card but that's just my opinion smile.gif

Drop your GPU to stock and see if problems persist. If it's consistently fine slowly raise your clocks bit by bit smile.gif It's most likely your GPU overclock.
