How likely is it?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
How likely is it that my 500GB seagate hdd is causing my comp to bsod, i have only my games on there, and the bsod's happen mostly during games, but a few have happened on the desktop. I have already taken my ram and gpus out of the cause.

not very likely. I suppose your windows install could be corrupt. Do you have a different hard drive to put in to test it? If you do, install a fresh windows partition on a different hard drive and give that a try. It might be a driver issue with your gpu, even if it isn't being caused by the gpu its self.

Sounds a bit driver/gpu related. Have you tried rolling back to other previous driver versions? I suggest trying the easiest options first, sometimes you get lucky

the problem started occuring on drivers that i had been using for the past 3 months, so upon a fresh install of windows, i grabbed the newest ones.

HW Monitor shows my 12V+ rail only putting out 1.28V max.... so im going to try a new psu tomorrow.

Take out one of the cards, see if it still does that. If so, put in the other card and check again.

Good idea, that 12v rail sounds very suss, try out the new PSU and let us know how you go. Best of luck. -M
