Something in/on your system is complaining.

If a clean install didnt fix it, then it isnt software unless you installed anything other than what came on the win 7 DVD.

Did you?


Perhaps drivers from a driver cd, perhaps a malware app, etc. Something.


This shows in the most recent DMP and is Related to RTCore64.sys MSI Afterburner from Micro-Star Int'l Co. Ltd.

It has known problems with win 7. I didnt see it in the earlier crashes so did you re-install it?

I did Re-Install it cuz i use it just to Control my Graphics Cards Fan Speed cuz it runs So low that it makes the most ANNOYING noise ever , but do you think that could be the cause?? and only thing installed right now is Slimdrivers (to get all my drivers) MSI Afterburner, Firefox 8.0, Mozilla ThunderBird, Steam, OpenOffice (dont feel like installing Office ATM), My Canon Printer Driver, Microsoft Security Essentials and THMPGEnc Authoring Works 4 (havnt even used it yet tho)

It might have been wiser to do a clean install (with HD format) and see if you crash BEFORE installing ANYTHING else. Then add things back one at a time till it crashes.

At this point you are back where you started. A 124 is hardware and you probably are going to have to test each piece one at a time on a CLEAN install
ok well i also looked at my parts warranty , i have 3 years on my CPU and Motherboard and Lifetime on my RAM , do you think i should RMA ?? like do you have any way of finding out what piece of Hardware is Causing the Problem so i can Fill out a RMA for it???

also i have uninstalled MSI Afterburrner right now and replaced it with EVGA Precision (do fix my Graphics cards Fan Speed)

You need to take a deep breath and stop. Figuring out which part is causing the problem requires testing each one, one at a time. Your other option is to rep all of them at the same time if the mfr's will let you, but then you will be without a computer for a bit.


Whats your poison?

lol well having no computer for a bit compared to having a PC that wont really run to its max potential is ok , like i got another PC i can use for The Web and stuff like that, so do you think i should RMA the RAM and CPU just to make it easy?

or is there like a program, i can use to like Stress test or something on each part?

FurMark download site: FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
NOTE: Set the alarm to go off at 90șC. Then watch the system from that point on. If the system doesn't display a temperature, watch it constantly and turn it off at the first sign of video problems. DO NOT leave it it unmonitored, it can DAMAGE your video card!!!
If the temperature gets above 105șC, quit the test - the video card is overheating.
- Click "Quit" to exit

It is your choice. I have outlined what I think, and what you should do.

Were it me, I would fix it.
