Windows 7: 1 yr old Computer has begun to BSOD while gaming

11 Oct 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
 
 
1 yr old Computer has begun to BSOD while gaming

Hello. I follow the BSOD protocol as instructed and hope someone can help.

My specs:

HP Pavilion p6522f PC
AMD Athlon II X4 635 Processor 2.90 GHz
RAM: 6.00 GB DDR3
Windows 7 64-bit SP1 (came pre-installed from brick'n'mortar retailer w/o disc)
Nvidia Geforce GT 240 1G DDR5 GPU
1 TB Hard Drive (~ half full)
Date of Purchase: August 2010
Date of First Occurrence of Issues Described Below: October 2011

Back on 9/30 I installed the latest version of EVGA precision and decided to toy around with overclocking. I watched a bunch of youtube tutorials to see what I was getting into, looked at rivatuner but didn't end up downloading anything. I tried jacking up all the dials on my EVGA tuner and my PC basically rejected it, froze for a little bit and reset to the original (default) settings. Hadn't touched it since then. Between then and now, I continued to do my normal volume of gaming (i.e. 4+ hours a day). Even did a staight playthrough of Portal 2 on high settings for 7 hours without the slightest stutter.

On 10/5, I was playing ESIV: Oblivion (which I hadn't had any trouble running before) and after about an hour of play my computer froze and started rebooting. I tried Oblivion again and this occurred again after 30 minutes-1 hours of gaming - when it froze, I got this BSOD that would vanish too quickly for me to read much of it - looked a lot like this BSOD image

Hadn't played Oblivion in a while, figured it might be a problem with that game or maybe Steam - upon a 3rd try, this happened again. I opened up my pc and cleaned out a lot of dust from the fans - the one in the lower central part of my desktop was particularly clogged. I let the computer sit for an hour and booted it back up - seemed fine. I played a bunch of minecraft and more Oblivion without any problems - later I turned on GTAIV and it gave me the same BSOD crash. I turned the computer off and let it sit for several hours and later tried playing Left 4 Dead 2, on which I have logged over 500 hours with this card without issues. About 2 minutes into a game, I'd get the BSOD crash/reboot. I kept my computer off all day while I was at work today and came home, powered it on, tried Left 4 Dead 2 after about an hour or two of steady performance and it crashed within 2 minutes once again. This last time, I turned on the in-game GPU temperature monitor, the GPU temp in degrees Celsius rose from the steady 40-50 it had been maintaining on the desktop to about 76 degrees Celsius, and promptly crashed.

I have had this computer (and the nvidia GPU) for 13 months, the only other problems I have had with it was the motherboard - back in June out of the blue the system would activate but display nothing, took it in under HP's 1 year warranty and they told me the motherboard had died, they replaced it at no charge and it has been running fine since then (I have been gaming a lot, and often graphics intensive games like The Witcher 2 at high settings) My PC has never been overclocked in any way in that time (don't have the knowhow). Looking at the Administrative Events Log, I see Critical Errors around the times I've rebooted from these crashes and they provide the following info:

"The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

Log Name: System
Source: Kernel-Power
Event ID: 41
Level: Critical
User: SYSTEM
OpCode: Info
Logged: 10/11/2011 6:46:23 PM
Task Category: (63)
Keywords: (2)


Any tips for resolving this issue? I tried doing a system restore but for some reason the restore function was off so I have no restore points before the BSODs began (although there doesn't seem to be any software that's caused this issue). I read that it's a good idea to buy a can of compressed air and clean out dust with that, although I don't see much dust left inside my machine (especially not on my GPU). If there is a hardware problem, I hope it's isolated to the GPU since I was planning on buying a more powerful card anyways...

It sounds like the computer is over heating. Download Core Temp (This is a free program) and will tell you your CPU temp. Also try taking the side off of the case and play the game agian.

Hi helmet and welcome to SF!
The crashes show several different reasons: one blames a crashing video driver but I believe from your story that there is an underlying thermal issue. Did you clean the insides of the computer recently? Check if all fans/heatsinks are still clean and working. Check your temperature with this Real Temp - CPU temperature monitoring or with this Core Temp

Another important action to be taken is outlined here:

Please report back with your findings.

Thanks for the tips guys! I really appreciate the help. I will try using Core Temp while playing the game and report back with my findings.

Oh, and for the record, pretty sure SP1 is installed as it shows up as reading SP1 in the properties window. So that's working at least.

Well your crash dump doesn't show SP1 as installed.
Go to start, right click on Computer and go to Properties. There it should be looking like this:

A cap of my properties window is attached.

I downloaded Core Temp and ran Left 4 Dead 2 (my benchmark game) to see how the CPU temperature would fluctuate. While on the desktop, I had the following base reading:

Temperature Readings:
Tj. Max 70 C
CPU #0: 22 C

Min 20 C Max 31 C


When I launched the game and it loaded to the menu, the Core Temp was 29 C - 30 C.
When a match was loading, the Core temp was 27 C - 31 C

Once I was actually playing the game, the Core Temp jumped to 36 C and held there for about half a minute, then climbed to 39 C, and then 41 C. Upon reaching 41 C, gameplay continued for about 5-10 seconds before I crashed to the familiar BSOD, from which I had time to write down the "STOP 0x0000001E" error.

I let the computer sit about a half hour before rebooting, the CPU temp on the desktop is about 22 C.

Tj. Max is the highest temp your CPU should go to before shuting off.

Your temps for the CPU are great. So you don't need to worry about the CPU overheating so it is ok to turn the computer right back on.

Its all pointing to the GPU at this point.

Okay, so the CPU doesn't look like the issue - what can I do about my GPU? I don't understand why it would suddenly start overheating when it's been fine for a year.

OK, Download GPU-Z and post the temps for the GPU. The temps can be found under the sensors tab.
