BSOD issue. Your thoughts?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

First off, my specs:

ASUS Striker Extreme
2GBs Corsair XMS 2 (not OCed)
Intel C2D E6420@ 2.67GHz
Creative X-Fi Xtreme gamer
500GB seagate HD
BFG Tech 7800GT
550Watt Antec Trupower PSU
Windows Vista Ultimate x64

Well, I have had my PC Overclocked for about a month with no problems. When i first overclocked the CPU I ran orthos for 12 hours and it was perfectly stable. Now, fast forward a month later and I had my first BSOD a few nights ago. I was attempting to burn a data DVD using nero 8.0 then BAM: Got the BSOD. When I saw the blue screen, it showed something about a Pagefile.sys or something like that.

What can I do?

So far, I have defragged my HD and I have run a registry cleaner to clean up my PC.

Is my overclock not stable anymore?
Was the BSOD caused by NERO 8.0?

I would like to mention that I can encode a DVD and use both cores@ 100% and my PC won't reboot.

I'm kind of worried; I hope I didn't damage any components.

I appreciate your feedback,

Thanks,

Nathan

Well the first thing is to return to stock and test your machines stability and see if you get a BSOD. If you dont then you can say that the OC is causing instability.

Also it would help us if we knew what the BSOD said. I will give you a description when it comes up. We need those details.

Have you run any stability tests after the bsod such as memtest and orthos? Test your RAM for faults using memtest, fully load your system again and watch your temperatures. If you get errors or another bsod we can continue from there, if nothing appears out of the ordinary maybe it was a one time thing.

Edit: Dammit Enterprise, your EEE is faster than my desktop now?

restart's actions almost because of RAM timings or frequency
i don't think that bsod related to overclock attempt
maybe nero fault
also upgrade all your drivers especially chipset and graphics card and any network card
also try another nero version
12 hour orthos small ftts test some time not enogh because once i have error orthos after 12 hours + 40 min
24 hours in most cases to make sure about stability
good luck

Hey guys,

I will do some stability testing tonight and get back to you. Temps are kind of warm, but then again, my room is kind of warm.

CPU idle: Core 1 = 41C......................Core 2 = 43C

MB temp = 39C

Hopefully this BSOD was caused by NERO 8.0

Thanks guys,


Nathan
