Will check them.

Did your PC come with Windows pre-installed or have you reinstalled Windows on your PC?

Hello IamGravy.

Scan the system for possible virus infection.
Let us know the results.

Can you put your System Specs in the 'My System Specs' drop box at the lower left of any of your posts.
Then we don't have to search all over the thread to try and find them.

How many passes did you make with memtest86+?
Need a minimum of 7 Full passes, each pass runs different tests so all 7 passes are needed.
Best to run overnight.

I need some more information on some of your components.
Can you download CPUZ and post a snip of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.
For posting the information , enter 'Snipping tool' in the Start button > Search box, hit enter. Select the area you want to post and save to a convenient place.

Go to your BIOS and tell us what the CPU, RAM and the CPU integrated memory controller voltages are.

Do you have any Asus Utilities installed?
If you do, un-install them as they are known to cause instability.

From the Event Logs:
There are a lot of these errors, update the nVidia driver, if you have the latest driver then install a couple versions older driver. This is a common problem with graphics drivers.

Here are the snips.
I could not find the voltages.
I had 1 Asus utility that I installed recently and removed.
Memtest tested 7 passes with no errors. It took around 16 hours to finish ; )
I went to check on my video drivers and there was a new one so I installed it. I will go back to a later one if you need me too.
The windows update errors have been fixed and are no longer an issue.
I will post the latest diagnosis in the next post.
Thanks again!

Download your motherboard manual, if you don't already have it.
Look for Power> Vcore Voltage to find the CPU voltage
Advanced > Memory Over Voltage to find the RAM voltage, you may need to increase it the smallest amount to see a reading of the current voltage.
Advanced > VDDNB Over Voltage to fine the IMC (Integrated Memory Controller) voltage, you may need to increase it the smallest amount to see a reading of the current voltage.

Your Asus support site has 7 new BIOS versions listed and they all say 'Improve system stability' and a couple say 'Improve memory compatibility'.
When you see that many BIOS updates in just over a year it means there is a known problem or two they are trying to fix, the latest is v1302.
You should update your BIOS, if you haven't done it before or have any questions, ask them before flashing your BIOS. If not done correctly you can make your motherboard non-functional.
Use the 'Asus EZ Flash 2 Utility' in section 2.1.2 of your motherboard manual.

Best place to start will be the BIOS update, this has the best chance to solve the BSoD issues.

Last crashes:
Code:

These are blaming Direct X, which usually indicates the graphics driver, can mean a graphics card failure or RAM issue.

As previously stated, update the BIOS first, then we can re-assess system stability.

Due to some reason I cannot suggest you to update it to the latest.
  • Go to Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers, Drivers > Beta and Legacy; search there with your cards particulars for GeForce 306.23 Driver, dated 13.9.2012, save it on desktop.
  • Follow the instructions by essenbe
    Quote:
    Go to C:/Nvidia (The usual location for Display drivers.) Open the folder and there will be a folder for display drivers, open it. Inside will be a folder for every Nvidia driver you have installed. They will be named 306.23, 310.90 etc. Delete all of them but do not delete the display driver folder itself.

    Disconnect from the Internet to keep windows from installing a generic display driver. It will install a display adapter, but that's OK.

    Go to Control Panel > Uninstall programs and find Nvidia. Important: If you have an Nvidia chipset DO NOT uninstall the chipset driver. Uninstall the 3D driver, PhysX driver, HDMI Driver and all other drivers. IMPORTANT: Uninstall the Display driver Last. After uninstalling the display driver you will be prompted to reboot. Do so. When you come back, Windows will install the display adapter, It's OK.

    Begin installing the driver you downloaded from Nvidia on your desktop. Select the language, accept the agreement and select Custom Install. Make sure the 'Clean Install' box is checked. Uncheck all drivers except the Display driver and the Physx Driver. Do not install any of the other drivers unless you have a particular need for the 3D driver. Complete the install and reboot.

    Connect to the Internet again and you are done.
  • If problems persist even after installing the said driver, take the following tests:
    • Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
    How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
    Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

    • Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Thank you for the replies.
I installed that driver.
I have run memtest with no errors.
I have run the stress test with no errors.
