Hi, I first had a BSOD during video playback and now it's crashing every 10 mins or so.

MB: GB X58A-UD3R
CPU: i7 930

Please advise. Thanks.

Best advice that I've seen about this error (from here: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tml#post356791 )

What you're looking for will be in one of the following categories:

a) BIOS bug
b) a driver whose activity is causing the target processor to lock up
c) a hardware defect (temperature, voltage, dust, RFI, outright borkedness...)
- H2SO4
So, check the drivers
Then check the inside of the case (temperature, voltage, dust, etc).
Then run some hardware stress tests

Quote:
Try this free video stress test: FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
Try this free stress test: Free Software - GIMPS
Quote:
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead.
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.
Then try replacing parts.
Then look up the versions of your BIOS to see what changes were done.[/QUOTE]

I'm not sure why, but I uninstalled ac3 filter and the video playback no longer gives a BSOD. Hopefully it stays that way.

Thanks for your help zigzag3143.
