Windows 7: BSOD -- Windows 7 Ultimate x64 -- Watching video on Hulu

BSOD -- Windows 7 Ultimate x64 -- Watching video on Hulu

Hi Sevenforums,

I've been encountering a bunch of BSOD's lately for some reason. I'm going to upload the latest one and hopefully after fixing it, other BSOD's with different error codes will stop as well.

I built this computer just about a month ago. Mobo is GA-970A-UD3 with AMD X4 965 Processor.
GPU is SAPPHIRE AMD Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5 PCIE Graphics Card.

I had 4GB of Corsair Vengeance Blue 4 GB PC3-12800 1600mHz DDR3 240-Pin SDRAM, but just added another stick of 4GB a few days ago. I think this might have something to do with the BSODs but I don't know how to verify that...

Thanks for all your help!

jayjayjay,
Help us to help you.
carry out following:

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Ř Manufacturer and Model OR Custom build.
Ř ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

With Speccy, you can select with your mouse/touchpad info from the display
and paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

=========================================

If you didn't already, then download and install SPECCY.

SPECCY | expand RAM

See that at least the mfg of both modules is the same.

I've updated my profile. I'm also attaching another .dmp file from another BSOD i just received

any and all help is appreciated. thank you very much!

The 2 sticks of RAM are identical.


This 2nd BSOD occured while i was playing guild wars 2.

yesterday, I uninstalled the AMD software for 6870 GPU... and reinstalled it, thinking that the GPU might be causing the BSODs... but they're stilll happening.

jayjayjay,
While we are trying to determine the source of your problem:

STOP OVERCLOCKING

Overclocking is the biggest source of hardware caused BSODs.

Thank you for the help

I don't think I have done any overclocking. Is there any way to check?

set your bios to defaults.

You are overclocking as revealed by your dump files.

Ohh I think that may be referring to the RAM. My ram is 1600, but for some reason the BIOS had it set at 1333, so I Manually put it to 1600---do you think that could be the problem?

I am NOT referring to the ram.

First, stop overclocking which is one of the primary causes of BSODs.
