Back after doing some tests from what was said.

@Arc

I did your Seatool and it come back passed! I did the long scan.


I no longer have Avira or Daemon Tools anymore, And I have Microsoft Security Essentials. I did a scan *one by one both fully updated* And I got 0 on Microsoft Security Essentials and 0 on malwarebytes.
After doing all of that, I went back to my game working working fine.. Crash! *I have added a new dump*


@Essenbe
When I did memtest + I only left it for one pass and got 0 errors.. I did not record the temps when I was using Prime95, So I retook them and left it running for two hours! *As said* Here are my photos of my temps

What about Disk Check?

Do you have another HD on which you can do a perfect test install to rule out the HD as suspect?

Read over these steps for the Best Practices to get a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which are the same for retail, to compare how close you have come to getting it perfect only using the tools and methods which work best with Win7.

If not consider getting a baseline perfect reinstall after wiping the HD with Diskpart Clean Command making sure especially to follow the best practices for drivers, leaving out the driver bloatware packages and favoring first the drivers given by Win7.

I agree that it sounds like hardware but you can't rule out software until you have a baseline perfect reinstall. In these same situations over the past three years, the end results have split about 50-50.

Yes they don't show my fans that well, Must of been how I set them up.. I have four fans two on top, one on the side, one on the back.. Also two more one on the graphics card and the other on the power pack.. Thought they are working and running fine!

@gregrocker

I went to go and do the Disk check as you said here and here you are:



I only have the one HD so I cant do other tests.. But a HD programs say my HD is healthy?
When I get home later I will! Do a fresh install of windows 7 64 bit

Anymore tests I can do for you? I really want my pc to stop crashing.

Thanks

I did not go through each and every post in this thread, but something struck me about that Seatools run.


For some reason SMART is available, but is disabled. I'm not sure you can say what's happened internally with that drive. Is it really okay for the long term, or ready to die in a few minutes?


I'm aware there are ways to enable it, but I've never run across a drive where it was disabled (at least that I can recall), so I've never really looked very hard at those tools. You've got to be able to talk to the drive at a much lower level to do it.


How old is your motherboard?

If you can find out what brand your hard drive is, use the diagnostic tool for it. Download the one for your brand here: Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

@F5ing,

Am not sure why Smart happened, I just did what was said "Burn to disc, run it, do a long scan" Am not going to lie I have never ever heard of Seatools before this is my first time ever using it..

How old my motherboard is? Well I brought it on Fri 18th Feb 2011 and my pc was built about 2-3 days after that..


@Britton30,
Dose this help? [IMG]http://s12.**************/7tmd2zbsd/Capture.png[/IMG]

No, I'm not saying you did anything wrong. It's just that SMART shows as disabled and it's not easy to intentionally or even mistakenly do that. So I'm just wondering how it happened, and if you can have any real confidence in the results that you received from the tests you ran.

Motherboard is probably fine if it was brand new at the time you mentioned (as far as SMART is concerned).

No, no reason to redo. You'll likely get the same result anyway.

Follow Britton's advice, follow the link he posted to find the diagnostics program for your particular brand of hard drive and run it.
