Windows 7: My Computer,auto restarts on BSOD

If you read my previous post, there are two tests included for the graphics card. FurMark and the Video Memory Stress Test. I would also recommend doing the Prime95 test.


We should also check your RAM compatibility:
  • Download and install CPU-Z and Upload screenshots of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs. In the SPD tab, upload an image of each slot.

hi. right i downloaded GPU-Z & Core Temp let my computer run for 2 hours just doing normal stuff like browsing & some downloads, my CPU temp stayed at 32/34c & my GPU 51c to 61c. Then i opened up Bigasoft Total Video Converter to covert from f4v to avi, & my CPU temperature shot right up to 110c, then BSOD happened. Would you think my CPU is knackered, or should i try a bigger fan on there. ? Thank you for any info or help might give.

It sounds like you do not have adequate cooling for the processor. Maximum temperature for that processor is 55-63 C, so you are definitely cooking it when converting video. I would be concerned about possible damage to the processor itself, as well.

Did you apply the thermal compound properly on the processor? Thermal Paste and How To Use It | techPowerUp


Is the heatsink securely in place over the processor? Gently wiggling it with your finger should not allow it to budge at all.


As you add and remove hardware, follow these steps for ESD safety:
  1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
  2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
  3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
  4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working. If you do not have an anti-static workbench, desk, or pad, you can use your computer tower/case by finding a metal hold in it, such as a drive bay.
Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Hi. I have now reseated my CPU with fresh Thermal paste, my temperature ranges from 31c to 45c using core temp,however my computer has shut down on its own about 4 times now. I then used a power supply calculator on the web, it was saying i needed 601wats with all i was running. My question is would you think my PS is not man enough ? My power supply is 580wats. I'm now waiting for a new 750watt corsair PS & a new Arctic Cooling Freezer fan to arrive. Any input would much appreciated. Thank you very much.

Calculators are not necessarily always right. They tend to over-estimate for a margin of safety. That said, it still is probably a good idea to upgrade. Running with a power supply lower than recommended may work for a time, but it will eventually start to stress it and may cause it to fail over time.

Your steps sound like good troubleshooting. Let us know how things go with the fan and PSU.

Your temps look much better, by the way.

Hi. OK hears what iv done so far. I installed my new power supply, & cleaned out as much dust as i could, i got no change. I then followed that by changing my heatsink & fan, & still my system starts to overheat when i make it work, IE convert video flv to avi. I have now swopped all old for new, memory/psu/HS&fan. In idle mode core temp tells me Core 0 is 22c & Core 1=24c, Browsing & doing General Stuff 33c to 48c. I have also noticed if i reboot, say after 2 hours of running, just after windows start ups, my temperature shoot all the way up, & sometimes my computer just shuts itself down. If left to stand, for my computer to cool down for about an hour, it will then boot up & run normal, until of course i make it work. Any any ideas as to what i should do now ? Thank you.

When you replaced the heatsink and fan, did you re-apply the thermal paste? Thermal Paste and How To Use It | techPowerUp
