ok so heres the whole story. a few months back i upgraded my GPU from the OEM card that came with my HPE-410y PC to a EVGA Nvidia GTX 560.
because the OEM PSU couldnt handle the GPU i upgraded to a 550w PSU which blew out after a few months. well my PC sat for a couple months until i could get around to fixing it then i finally went and bought a rosewill 1000w PSU. this upgrade got my PC up and running but shortly afterwards my pc started the BSOD issue i am still dealing with.
originally my pc said it was a plug and play driver
issue so i fixed that but that didnt stop the issue. so i updated all my drivers
but still no change. i scanned the HDD and found bad sectors so i ordered a new 256gb OCZ agility4 SSD and reinstalled a brand new OS to the SSD. still i have the same problem.
this only happens when gaming so my next thought was the video card maybe got fried when the 550w PSU blew out. so i sent the GTX 560 back to EVGA and got a new one. still crashing during games.
i have been doing alot of research into this problem and all the dumps i have looked at says ntoskrnl.exe+4b094c caused the BSOD. some forums say that the Nvidia HD audio driver is the cause so i uninstalled it. other forums point to bad RAM so i ran Memtest86 for hours with no errors. i then reseated my 4 2gb sticks. still no change.
from there i cleaned out the dust from all the pc components and ran thermal tests on the PC even opening the case and pointing a fan at the CPU but still crashed and the CPU logs show the temp never rose into dangerous levels.
i have spent the last month troubleshooting this problem and i feel like my motherboard my be the problem but i can in no way verify that. please help. i have uploaded the dump file for the crash as well as the seven forums log that is a requirement for BSOD posts. here is the BSOD notification:
