Windows 7: BSOD at random times while using.

I was not able to get another graphics card to try, however i bought a canned air and used it to thoroughly cleaned the graphics card. After that i tried the OCCT test again and it managed to complete the whole test! This is the result. Good news?

I am not very sure if the test went correctly as the screen image was still. I did some video card stress test and there are images moving around but this OCCT test image was the same throughout.

Is that all graphs which were saved? There's two lines on voltage graphs, one line is steady and normal, whereas, the other is fluctuating (possible bad PSU?), I will get someone to have a look for a confirmation, and the temperatures do look better now

Have you tried moving the graphics card to a different PCIe/PCI slot? What is the brand of your PSU? Most OEMs release their products with low quality PSUs.

May I know how do I get the brand of my psu? Looking at my psu, there is a sticker with a few lines of alphanumerical codes and 'made in china'. Nothing that indicates the manufacturer.

I did not relocate my graphics card slot. I don't remember seeing another same length slot as the graphics card slot on the board. And the graphics card slot is light blue whereas others are all black in color.

It's most probably a Dell PSU, could please upload a screenshot of the Hardware Monitor output:Test your graphics card for confirmation with Furmark:From what I have been told, your motherboard could also be bad, thus the reason for the very low voltages, so it's best to check within the BIOS at the voltages or use CPUID Hardware Monitor.

This is the CPUID. I will test using furmark soon and post the result. Actually rushing for an assignment now so cant afford to have my com go into BSOD again. Is the CPUID report normal?

Most readings look good but the 3.3V line is reporting 2.248V if that is correct thats bad

Should not drop below 3.1V

I would double check voltages in bios as that may be more reliable if it says the same then you may be looking at a dodgy psu

Dell PSUs and OEM PSUs in general, are usually not of a high quality standard.

is it receiving 2.248V because of a faulty PSU or is it originally like this since its from dell? Anyway i could fix it?

If the 3.3V rail is only putting out that voltage then i would expect the psu to be knackered, personally i would physically check it with a multimeter to confirm before i replaced it because no its not fixable

I did the furmark test and the highest temperature reached 82 degrees around 30 minutes after i started the test. May i know where do i get the graphs and results from the furmark test? Where is it stored?

I do not have a multimeter to check the voltage, but is it necessary that i change the PSU? would u suggest it? Is this malfunction affecting my other hardwares or the overall performance of the computer as well?
