Hi there, I have searched around these forums for answers for my first build. Most of the problems have been resolved, but this new one has surfaced. I coudn't find the answer to my problem, so I decided to make an account.
This morning, I was going to log in my account as usual. As soon as it got the account set up and my desktop ready, it froze. I tried several times, both in regular and safe modes, to get my account to load. For some reason it only loaded when in safe mode. I checked my startup programs, my GPU clocks(I had an issue with my overclocking and a missed value recently), and anything else I could think of and found here and on other sites.
During one of my runs on a regular start up, I accidentally clicked the guest account instead of my account. It loaded normally. Thinking the problem may have a connection only to my account, I created a new admin account to see what happened. Same thing, the account loaded up normally and there was no trouble.
BlueScreenViewer reported 2 BSODs when I accessed my account and it froze up. For the nth time, the cause of the trouble was ntoskrnl.exe. I had trouble with this same core file when I had the aforementioned GPU clock mishap. Could the two be somehow related? Y2K11 perhaps?
Attached is the .zip containing the dumps and perfmon. Note that the BSODs before the New Year was part of my GPU overclocking and the missed value.
