OK seeing as we are getting no dumps we could be a bit proactive about it and start running some tests to rule things out

First off if your OCing in anyway stop, return everything to stock settings for the purposes of testing


If you havent already, fill in your system specs so we know what we are dealing with

Run some scans to check against virus or infection

Run some basic hardware tests

You could also try running driver verifier to see if we can flush out any faulting drivers

Nope, not overclocking. I've never done that before. Thanks. Will run these tests now.

Here's a picture of the specs.


Is there no other way at all to get the dump files to go in that folder?

Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers

I followed this tutorial, done everything correctly, restarted computer and no BSOD. Do I really need to leave the computer on for 36 hours? Lol.

It may well not be a driver issue i was just trying to suggest some things to go at it a bit, try running some everyday tasks with verifier enabled and se what happens, machine will be a bit laggy thats normal
Surf a couple pages, launch a game or two etc etc

We normally recommend running for 24hrs and if no BSOD turn off but its really up to you
I have messaged all the other BSOD team so hopefully we will get some fresh eyes today, give it a bit of time with verifier and we will see what others say

Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Whatever it may appear, post it.

Will do. Thanks.

Also, when I'm done with this Verifier thing, how do I stop it? A simple restart and it'll all go back to normal with no lag?

EDIT: Arc, I did that before. But will do it again. Give me a sec.

No you need to disable it as per the instructions, basically launch verifier again and delete settings
