BSOD code 7A

so this is a new error code i have been getting periodically but i have not changed any hardware

prev to this i was getting a screen freeze during games that would EVENTUALLY go away and put me back into the game but upon reformatting i have yet to have this problem

im at a loss for what to do and im reading it can be MANY things including memory hard drive and so forth

its odd because i passed a 12 hour prime test on multiple dif overclocks without this error and then randomly it happens


my specs are....

corsair force 3 120g ssd
i5 2500k
p67 sabertooth
corsair dominator 1.65v ram (at 1.15 vccio)
asus 560 ti

if i miss anything ask im kinda flustered atm

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and which one was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Minidumps should be generated when your computer crashes. Navigate to C:\windows\minidump and copy the contents to your desktop as described in the instructions in my last post.


Compress them, then upload. See instructions for more details.

You have a pagefile on the same HD as the OS?

Your crashes may be happening in RAM so they cannot be saved.
