Windows 7: Random BSODs

System Specs updated. Let me know if you'd like any more info.

I had turned automatic restart off prior to the last reboot. It isn't the power supply as I upgraded from 380 to 600w this week to try and correct the issue. I've been monitoring CPU temps and they are never above 30 and rarely beyond 25. I'll give the heat sync a clean anyway.

While you're at cleaning the heatsink, you'll want to go ahead and re-seat all your cards and reconnect all your cables, making sure that there's no material (like dust) that got into the slots. Also make sure the motherboard is sitting correctly on the standoffs in your PC chassis. All of these can cause shorts which would cause your system to spontaneously bug out.

You mentioned you replaced the PSU. When did you replace it? Did you suffer the non-BSOD reboots before or after your replaced it? Did you turn off automatic restarting before or after you replaced the PSU?

There's always the chance that you could've replaced a dud with a dud. Again, not conclusive, but shutdowns like this can only occur from hardware failure of specific types.

Reboots were occurring previously, but as far as I recall they only occurred with verifier enabled. In an effort to fix the issue I opened up the case, checked the connections and removed the sound card (before re-enabling on-board sound). Everything seemed to be going ok so I turned verifier off. However, I just recieved an IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL 0x0000000A BSOD. It failed to write to the crash dump.

I'll get Prime95 up and running again. I did a blend test overnight but the system locked up (everything turned on, but unresponsive) about 2 hours into it. Despite that, I looked at the results document and there are no failures.

To answer your question, I had suffered non-BSOD reboots before I replaced the power supply. As I said, I think these were generally when verifier has been enabled.

Edit: BSOD occurred when gaming.

I've been running Prime95 with large FTTs since my last post, but CPU temps aren't exceeding 35 (according to SpeedFan). Should it take this long to increase temp?

Edit: Rebooted (No BSOD) shortly after I posted this. The browser was still open and verifier was enabled (unlike at the last crash where there was a BSOD). Could be a shot in the dark, but I'm going to run the computer without the wireless adapter connected for the next 24 hours and try and force a crash. All reboots and BSODs have occurred with a browser window open or in a game running through Steam (while connected to the internet).

No. Prime95 will usually reach it's maximum temp in less than 1 hour. Why not try Core temp to monitor temps and see if you get different readings.

EDIT: you may want to see if there is an updated driver for your Network Adapter.

Just had another BSOD in-game (without the network adapter plugged in). This time the BCcode was 101 and it stated that "A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval". I haven't seen this particular BSOD before. I'm going to try and run the Prime95 Large FTTs test again to see if any of the cores run above 35.

Any thoughts on why it only reboots without a BSOD with verifier running?

Dump attached.

It was set to create a kernel memory dump rather than minidump.

Setting it to minidumps will ensure that it'll write the dump file regardless of the system not meeting the requirements necessary to make a kernel dump. If the dumps are still not written, then it's because of a failure of writing to the drive when the BSOD occurred, which could be caused by many various and sundry things.

If you've made sure the system is still setup to not do automatic restart with BSODs, and the system is still rebooting instantly, then that just has to be some form of hardware failure, as even if Driver Verifier was involved it would not automatically reboot like that.
