Windows 7: BSOD randomly when sometimes playing Minecraft or on Skype

BSOD randomly when sometimes playing Minecraft or on Skype

Hi,

I keep getting a BSOD randomly when on my PC. I have noticed it happening when on Skype, but it has also happened while playing minecraft so I don't know. I am a first time PC builder and have only had my PC for 2 days, and it has only started this today. When the BSOD flashes up, it says something about a hardware failure. I have run memchecker a couple of times and have passed.

Any help would be much appreciated and I have attached my dump files

Thank you in advance,

Sam

Hi Arc,

Thank you for replying!

I tried to do the things you said, and when I ran the "Windows 7: Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95", I blue screened almost instantly. Is this then due to a faulty CPU? I ordered my parts from Scan, and I did buy their ScanSure insurance, so I would be eligible for a replacement for any faulty or damaged part, its just I need to know what is faulty. Anyway, I have attached updated dump files, and hope you can let me know what my fault is.

And btw, my PSU is a Corsair 650w.

Thankyou very much man,

Sam

So it is the furmark test that produced an instant BSOD.

I would ask for the Speccy screenshot again.... twice. Once after say one hour of normal run, and one after two hours of normal run.

No, Prime95 caused the BSOD, it also causes my PC to restart sometimes when I run it. Anyway, I will send you my Speccy screenshot, ans I'll post another in an hour.

Thanks again.

Lol ... the most dangerous temps are attributed to the GPU ... actually I got stuck with that idea ... so despite of reading the post, typed what came from the unconscious

Dismantle the PC. Clean everything inside there. Clean the air vents, and the fan grills, specially; so that it can blow the hot air out easily. Take special care to the GPU fans.

While re-seating the computer, apply new thermal paste to the CPU.


Now continue to monitor the temps. Let us know those temps.

FYI I was playing games prior to this so that's the cause of the GPU temperature, or should it not be that high anyway? And also I have no thermal paste as my heat-sink came pre applied :/


EDIT

I stopped playing games 5 mins ago, here is attached screenshot of temps

I can suggest only, acceptance or refusal is on you

Thermal paste is available in any shop that sells computers etc. Ask for Arctic Silver.

Or, take it to a technician who can do it all for you. But you need to do it.
