Windows 7: BSOD - New PC Build

BSOD - New PC Build

Hi all,

Appreciate the level of detail you go in providing the tool to take all the relevant info and the support you give back, Many thanks.

So I had a Dell XPS 700 which died and therein i learnt it wasn't really upgradable so went to NovaTech and purchased the necessary components to create a New PC

PC -

CoolerMaster 690 Case
Intel I5 3450
Gigabyte GA-277X-UD3H Motherboard
Ballistix Sport 8GB (2X 4GB)
Sapphire HD 7850
64gig SSD Drive (I can't remember the make off the top of my head)

This is all 6 weeks old,

This is the third Motherboard I've had in as many weeks with the current being about 2 weeks old, the other two died completely zero power etc after a few hours of being on and BSOD all the way through the Windows Install.

Speaking of..

- x86 (32-bit) or x64 - 64bit
- the original installed OS on the system - Its a Retail copy of Windows 7 Pro
- an OEM or full retail version? Full Retail
- What is the age of system (hardware)? - 4 Weeks
- What is the age of OS installation - 2 weeks'ish

Currently its BSOD randomly however significantly less than the previous two motherboards and I can play games (Syndicate for example) for hours without it worrying.

I did have it running on 3x 22" 1080p Monitors however that just increased the instability so returned to a single 28"

I did want to do Graphic design/3D editing however I'm honestly concerned about the loss of data with it so prone to fail,

Please see attached and I'd really appreciate if anyone could shed some light, NovaTech as much as I rate them have no idea.

Kind Regards

Having read through a number of other BSOD threads its all pointing towards potentially being the SSD, so will go and pick up a SATA HD this weekend for testing whilst you guys review the above.

Many thanks.

  • Recommend removing your Gigabyte utilities through Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Uninstall a program. They can provide software interfaces with the hardware for overclocking, and even when the overclock is not enabled, that interface can cause instability.

  • MSI Afterburner/RivaTuner is known to cause instability with systems. Please remove the software.

Install your remaining Windows updates. You have not installed any updates to this point.

Crashes are various and may be due to the above. Take care of those first. Also, the latest .dmp file was from a month ago. Have you had crashes recently?

For the SSD, make sure the following are up to date:
  • SSD firmware
  • BIOS Version
  • Chipset Drivers
  • Hard disk controller drivers/SATA drivers
  • If you have a Marvell IDE ATA/ATAPI device, make sure the drivers are up to date from the Intel site or Marvell site and not from your motherboard/vendor support site.
