Windows 7: BSOD after installing new Graphics Card, error 0x000000101

BSOD after installing new Graphics Card, error 0x000000101

So, like the title says, I installed a new graphics card (MSI N670 PE 2GD5/OC) and since then my computer has been very unstable and is crashing a lot. The card is factory overclocked and I think it is faulty. Do you know of a way to underclock the card, so I can test if it is the overclock?


PSU: Enermax EMG700AWT

*edit*

So I used Afterburner to set my core clock to -104 and my power limit to 72% and this causes my card to boost to about 980MHz. With these settings the crashing has stopped. So the card cannot be used with the factory OC settings. So should I RMA?

Hello theone320.

► As far as I am seeing, you are not overclocking.
Code:
kd> !sysinfo cpuspeed
CPUID:        "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU         920  @ 2.67GHz"
MaxSpeed:     2670
CurrentSpeed: 2666
► Your dumps say stop 0x101, hardware related. Mostly CPU is the guilty for it.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

► Test the graphics card, too!

► Another one generates 0x9C, which is just similar to 0x124.
Follow the suggestions, thoroughly: Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

► Are you still using IE8? Better you shift to IE9.

▼ But, the first option would be, ask the vendor to check the graphics card, and if it is faulty, get a replacement.

It is not the CPU. I know that 100%. I sent the card back and requested a replacement. My old gpu is now back in and is causing no problems.

Very good to know!

101 pool corruption may occur due to the fault of CPU, GPU or even RAM, hard to determine which one is causing it actually.

Your base knowledge on your system worked!
