Windows 7: BSOD Running Kimgdoms of Amalur

Hello again,

The memory tests came up fine. The boot errors were still present when testing each stick individually, and memtest found no issues.

I also have a whole host of other issues appearing in event viewer around the time I ran those stress tests. Is that normal?

Also, I am noticing a huge difference in my computer's boot times now which I couldn't see before, particularly when shutting down. It takes a noticeably long time to shut down (at least 60-90 seconds), whereas before I had the boot errors but could not really tell that it had degraded. This extended shut down has only begun over the last few days so I cannot really put my finger on the cause, although the boot errors in event viewer have been present for a long time now.

If that video memory degradation error is true, is it possible for a graphics card to cause boot errors like that? My only other thought personally is a motherboard issue? I have no idea now.

Also, something else I noticed was strange. I ran a a pc health check from the control panel in windows, and it said no antivirus was detected, yet when I open action center it shows that microsoft security essentials is turned on and running fine.

Somewhere within my OS there seems to be a conflict between whether I am running antivirus or not, because you asked me this as well.

Not since the last one during Kingdoms of Amalur.

Do you mean BSOD errors in event viewer, or actual BSOD on screen?

Alright

Run this test CPU stress as the last dump has pointed towards a failing CPU.

Please go through it very carefully before you start and you can use Speccy to monitor your temps during this test

Let us know how it goes

WHen I look at HWiNFO64 it shows the CPU idling at about 50-54 degrees C. I have an intel i7 920 CPU. ,After reading that page it said to look for the Tcase number as the maximum temp, which says 67.9 degrees C.

( here is the link I followed to my processer: ARK | Intel® Core )

I think this means It will be unsafe to run the test because I do not have a difference of 20 degrees.

Also, isn't 50-54 degrees idle a little hot...?

In fact everything is running a bit hotter than normal. GPU is running around 60 degrees it normally goes down to about 45 idle.

So I'm pretty interested to hear your opinions on this little RPG. And I say little because I've played for about an hour now, and it seems fun at first. It gets a little dull too fast, and doesn't seem all that engaging to me. Perhaps I shouldn't have started playing on Normal. The UI is - OMG...
