For the 2nd time in as many sessions, my computer has suffered a BSOD while I was doing rudimentary tasks in Windows. It hangs for a min, the picture on each of my monitors disappears sequentially, then BSOD appears, but doesn't stay onscreen long enough for me to read and retain the info. I am primarily interested in determining if it's GPU related, since I have been experiencing lockups and DX diag crash messages during a few games.
During the most recent BSOD, the commuter hadn't been on for very long, it was during the evening when temps we cooler, GPU temps were in the 50s, and I was only wokring in MS Word. Tonight it BSOD immediately after I pressed the Show Desktop button in the lower right taskbar, as if my comp freaked at processing such a task.
I read the guidelines for submitting crash reports and so have zipped up the Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 folder & the PERFMON HTML into a ZIP file. There's a sea of information in the PERFMON HTML so I am not sure how to parse it, and the NT6_BSOD has so many files in it that I'm unsure where to begin. Any suggestions on how I can understand these docs would be appreciated.
I also included screenshots of DirectX function errors I have encountered during games, in case anyone has any ideas about what might be causing them, and some recurring Errors that appear in Event Viewer.
