i7 930 PC crashes while playing a certain game.. HELP Please!!!!!!! - Page 2

post #11 of 37
Your first dump file is showing a ton of crashes due to your AMD drivers. I'd do a complete wipe of your drivers, instructions are on here somewhere but it's more than just an uninstall, and reinstalling the most up to date WHQL release.

Reset all motherboard BIOS settings back to stock. If you are overclocking your video card, return core and memory clocks / voltages back to stock.

If you are running a factory overclocked video card, use a 3rd party utility to slightly underclock core and memory.

Complete wipe of existing AMD driver installation pack using the Windows Uninstall utility and then follow up with DriverSweeper (I've never personally experienced any issues using DS but some people claim that they have). Alternatively you can use the manual method detailed here;

Another utility that I've tried lately and seems to work really well is Display Driver Uninstaller;

After completion install the latest Windows approved display drivers. Keep in mind though, just because driver releases are the "latest" doesn't always mean they are the "greatest".

This may not be applicable to you, but I was having a similar problem with World of Warcraft, my main game, for this entire year. It would crash randomly, and it would always crash if I put my WoW settings above the "fair" option.

I was so annoyed by it that I literally changed out every part - CPU, motherboard, RAM, GPU, etc. Well, save one part - the PSU. It couldn't be the PSU, could it? I mean, the system turns on. Every other game runs just fine. Stress tests never crash the system or even make a dent. How could it be the power supply?

But indeed, it was the power supply the entire time. One night, after a crash, I saw, just for a split second, a message that read "connect additional power cable to GPU." I knew immediately. I switched out the power supply the next day and all has been well since.

If you really can't find a software error, its worth reverse engineering the parts until you find the issue.

Thanks bud, I'll try that out when I get home. I'll keep you posted!

Okay.. Everything is fine.. just have one concern... When I start up the computer after some time it turns on and off about 2-3 times after I have overclocked to 3.85ghz... Everything runs fine, but want to make sure nothing is wrong? I put it back to 3.8ghz (not sure if that will make a difference), but when it was at that it never restarted 2-3 times on boot-up.

Forgot to mention that it passed the stress test multiple times and prim95 as well for about 6 hours with no problems...

What you are describing could be your PSU overheating.

It would help if you could fill in your system specs thumb.gif
