Windows 7: Multiple BSOD 116

Did you try zipping them up first? You can change their extension to .txt instead (they're the same thing).

Your GPU even outs to 80C at high load. From what I'm reading online this seems to be a pretty good stable temperature and it means your fan is doing its job keeping it from going any higher. I personally can't see how this would be an overheating problem. The previous 95C as you mentioned though, is definitely pushing it, especially if it experiences that temperature over extended periods of time.

I want to note that from what I read online that was temperatures people experienced when they started doing some overclocking on their card (same exact model as yours). If yours isn't overclocked and still experiencing these temperatures...

Anyways, I've found a while back a pretty solid article on troubleshooting TDR failures like this here. It does a good job explaining many of the causes for why it would do this. You'll wanna give it to a look.

I want to add, I noticed that at the time you posted the JCGriff Report, it said you were already using up around half your 4GB of RAM. These issues can be caused by RAM exhaustion (especially since much if not all graphics activity involves nonpaged pool, which can only be attached to RAM, never to paging file on disk). Windows 7 sets a maximum of nonpaged pool on RAM to 75% of the total RAM. If this gets exhausted, then these problems occur. There may be a process that's hogging memory and taking up nonpaged pool. These are potential causes, so don't rule out the GPU.

In addition, I did remember you saying something about getting a replacement motherboard. Often motherboard problems can show up as anything else. Have you tried updating the drivers for your motherboard, as well as the BIOS? In addition, if you have onboard video, uninstall the drivers for it and do whatever you can to prevent it from being active (turn it off on BIOS, etc.). I've seen video cards and onboard butting heads before on resources.

My card isn't overclocked. 95C was in furmark.

Thanks for the article.

JCGriff report?

I don't wanna update the bios, it's dangerous.
I think i have onboard video disabled, but i will check sometime.

Thanks for the help.

Updating the BIOS isn't nearly as dangerous as it was back in the day. Nowadays it's possible to reset to a previous version or be able to access the BIOS and flash a version straight from there if things go bad. Only the worst cases where you can't even access the BIOS would mean your mobo is bricked. I would still recommend it. If you decide to do so, make sure to do it when your PC is completely idle, and turn off every other program (both background and foreground) to prevent anything from intervening. Once you see things are running fairly stable, perform the BIOS flash. It'll take about 1-5 minutes.

Now that I think about it, since you have onboard video, have you tried defaulting to that for a while and see if you still get the crashes?

I didn't think bios flash was done in windows. If there is a power cut half way through, it will render the mobo useless.. With my last motherboard(the one i got replaced), i updated the bios. I kind of think it isn't the motherboards fault, since this is a new one, and i had the same problem with the old one. I appreciate the suggestion, but would rather use this as a last resort.

The onboard graphics is disabled, i haven't tryed using it.

In that link you gave me, there was a graphics driver uninstall/reinstall guide. Within that guide it mentions: "1) Stop windows from installing updates automatically. Go to your control panel, then windows upate, then change settings. Change this setting to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them."

Windows has allready downloaded these things on my computer i think, because it allways installs something on reboot after i uninstall the drivers for it.
There's nothing i can do to prevent this right?

Bios Flashing is done in parts, with verification checks throughout each part. If it crashes, it will corrupt that one section specifically. Recovery options depend on which section got corrupted.

It may be relying on the initial cache of drivers that comes with Windows to install the drivers for your card, as opposed to using ones provided through Windows update. Having the drivers installed is fine as long as you uninstall them then install the appropriate drivers in the same session (as in, don't restart the computer between uninstall and install).

Oh, i thought u had to reboot after removing the windows ones. Im gonna try removing and installing the graphics driver again, properly, with driver sweeper as mentioned earlier in the thread, and also things u and others mentioned. Though, i do remember having great difficulty trying to stop windows installing it's own drivers, ill come back and ask if theres still a problem.
Greatly appreciate the assitance, thanks.

If Windows sees a device present and enabled that it has drivers for, it will automatically attempt to install them. There is a way to prevent it from doing this for specific devices, but it means editing the INF files for that device's drivers which are stored in the Windows cache, or removing the drivers in the Windows cache that it has stored up for that device.

It shouldn't matter anyways. After you install the appropriate drivers, the old Windows drivers will be superseded by them and will no longer be used for that particular device. You can confirm this by going to device manager and right clicking the device, going to the Properties window for it, and clicking for Driver Details to see the list of drivers active for it.

Oh i see. I was worried about the drivers conflicting with each other.
