Windows 7: BSOD carried over to fresh install of Windows 7. Help.

BSOD carried over to fresh install of Windows 7. Help.

One year old system. i2500k P8P67 Pro Asus board with 8GB Corsair RAM and XFX 6970. No other add on cards, 3 hard drives. Ever since originally building the system last January 2011 it has had BSOD when playing games only. Any game, sometimes will not crash for a while ie. weeks, other times repeatedly within hours. Very random. But only with games. Not enough of a pain to really care that much. Did a fresh install of Windows 7 and hoped that would solve my problem. Installed and updated drivers from Asus site for my motherboard, new drivers for anything I could think of. No errors in device manager. Ran memtest86 overnight with no problems. Prime 95 run for 3 hours CPU going to 50C max CPU idles at 26C. GPU generally runs at 90C while playing grahpically intense games. Idles at 40C. Big case, lots of fans, tons of airflow.

THe common demoniator may be the ASUS AI Suite II (and Steam). All other programs on this install I've not used before. Switched to MSE, etc. Only installed a new game not previously used which led to the recent BSOD after fresh install. At this point I`m a bit stumped.

Uploaded dump file as per instructions in top post. Any help would be appreciated. My guess is that since it is only happening in games that it is probably the video card, although I have no clue really.

*edit: Fresh install was done yesterday May 5th

On a side note Windows 7 is installed on a SSD, don't know if that matters or not.

Sumidian,
I'm not a bsod analysis expert, but there are some general things which I can look at while we await the true bsod experts.

Install CCleaner:
CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

list of STARTUP PROGRAMS

CCleaner | Tools
icon | Startup button | Windows tab |
click on Save to text file button (bottom right side) |
accept Startup.txt as file name | SAVE button

list of SCHEDULED TASKS

CCleaner | Tools
icon | Startup button | Scheduled Tasks tab |
click on Save to text file button (bottom right side) |
enter Scheduled Tasks as File name | Save button

List of INSTALLED PROGRAMS

CCleaner | Tools
icon | Uninstall button |
click on Save to text file button (bottom right side) |
accept install.txt as File name | Save button


UPLOAD the startup.txt file
UPLOAD the Scheduled Tasks.txt file
UPLOAD the install.txt file.

HOW TO UPLOAD

In CCleaner, under Scheduled Tasks, Disable all
====================================

Your install list is amazingly clean:

You might try without the ASUS AI suite and the Intel Watchdog Timer.

Let's see what the BSOD experts find.

I agree with Karl. Please remove the ASUS AI suite. It provides some software overclocking ability that can cause crashes when it interfaces with the hardware. I also note that you have an SSD. Make sure the following are up to date:
  • The SSD firmware
  • BIOS version
  • Chipset drivers (get from the Chipset manufacturer rather than your motherboard support site; the motherboard support site can help you determine which manufacturer you need)
  • Hard disk Controllers
The final item leads me to one other possible issue. I see the Marvell controller installed. The latest is supposed to provide support for SSDs and not cause conflicts: update from Marvell - Support. The Marvell controller you installed may cause conflicts with the SSD. If the updated version still does not provide stability with the SSD, uninstall the Marvell Controller.

You can find the Marvell Controller device in Device Manager under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. To fully re-install a driver, use the following steps.
  1. First, download the latest driver. Then do the next steps.
  2. Click Start Menu
  3. Right Click My Computer/Computer
  4. Click Manage
  5. Click Device Manager from the list on the left
  6. Find the device you are trying to uninstall by expanding the appropriate set of devices
  7. Right click the device
  8. Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
  9. Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK
  10. Restart your computer only if Windows asks you to.
  11. Install the latest driver for the device.

Alternatively:
  1. Login as an adminstrative user.
  2. First, download the latest driver. Then do the next steps.
  3. Click Start Menu
  4. Click Control Panel
  5. Click Hardware and Sound
  6. Click Device Manager (the last link under Devices and Printers)
  7. Find the device you are trying to uninstall by expanding the appropriate set of devices
  8. Right click the device
  9. Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
  10. Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK
  11. Restart your computer only if Windows asks you to.
  12. Install the latest driver for the device.
