There seems to be some mis-communication here. If you are still having BSOD's please upload only the new DMP files. That will ensure I am looking at the current situation.

How do I make sure only the newest .dmp's are uploaded when I run the program?

Check the dates. Just upload the ones after your last post.

Only one BSOD since removing keyboard and mouse from the front usb, however the freezing still continues. I can play all day some days and not encounter an issue and some days like today where its constant freezing. Either idling or gaming the freezing occurs. Also a loud static noise comes out from my headphones when it does occur, is it something sound related? I know I'm probably not giving you much to work with but thanks for the help so far.

This one may have been a one off as it was related to DirectX

If you are just freezing atm please upload your event viewer logs.

Please provide us with your Event Viewer administrative logs by following these steps:


Click Start Menu

Save them in a folder where you will remember which folder and save as Errors.evtx
Go to where you saved Errors.evtx

Two issues. Both can be fixed by a repair install, see snips

NO DMPS included in upload try this method.


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 what was responsible.
Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.


If you are overclocking STOP

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. If empty (or non existent) please look in the following folders. C:\windows (the dmp should be called memory.dmp), and C:\windows\LiveKernelReports\Watchdog.

The procedure:
Quote:
* 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:
Quote:
* 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.

Sorry bout that haven't been at my computer much. Today I tried booting up and got 3 freezes at various times. Not overclocking in anyway. All crashes/freezes are after repairing installing windows, and the problem persisted after a factory re install and a clean install previously. Is it some how possibly virus/malware related even after clean installs and several MSE and malwarebytes searches?
