Windows 7: Custom built PC BSOD playing Outlast and other games

Custom built PC BSOD playing Outlast and other games

I had BSOD problems this summer (was running 4 sticks of ram, 2 Patriot and 2 Kingston). They went almost completely away when I took out the Patriot sticks and a PCI to USB adapter that seemed to be sitting in the slot crooked when the support screw was all the way in. BSOD's started recurring when I attempted to play Outlast, eventually leading to me being unable to go more than a few minutes without one.

Hello rjcooley.

How old the Western Digital SiliconEdge BlueSSD is?
Make it sure that it is running with the up-to-date firmware. WD Support / Installation / SSD / WD SiliconEdge Blue
Also, it is almost full .... which is enough to make it crash to BSOD.

ITEMVALUE
Drive C:
Size 59.62 GB (64,020,803,584 bytes)
Free Space 2.68 GB (2,875,863,040 bytes)

Salvage some space. At first, disable hibernate.

The latest version of the display driver is buggy in cases. Install the 314.22 WHQL only.
  • Uninstall All nvidia items in Control Panel > Programs and features
    • 3D Vision Control Driver
    • 3D Vision Driver
    • Graphics Driver
    • HD Audio Driver
    • PhysX
    • nvidia Update
    (Are you using nvidia chipset drivers? If so, dont uninstall anything other than those are listed).
  • Now follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling
  • Boot normally now. Go to Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers, Download 314.22 WHQL. While installing, Select Custom (Advanced) install. In the next page, follow this settings:

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.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Is the computer running hot? Let us see. Upload a snapshot Using Speccy.
Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Let us know the results.

How old the Western Digital SiliconEdge BlueSSD is?
3 years or so. I bought it almost a year ago from someone who said he'd built it 2 years prior. I cleared space so there's about 15 GB free now, and that site indicated that there were no available downloads for the SSD.

The latest version of the display driver is buggy in cases. Install the 314.22 WHQL only.
I uninstalled all the NVIDIA things you listed. Not sure how to tell if I'm using the chipset drivers. I then tried installing the 314.22 WHQL driver and got this error: "NVIDIA Installer cannot continue. The graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware."

I will run memtest when I have more time as well. FurMark gives me the error "Could not initialize ZoomGPU. FurMark startup failed. Bye!" I imagine it might have something to do with the lack of video drivers, but I'm not sure.

Oh, and eXtreme Power Supply Calculator suggests at least 609W for the power supply. Mine is 850.

Hmm ... 314.22 WHQL does not support Geforce GTX 780. I did not notice it earlier, my bad. You get the 320.49 version back, and wait for another driver update. Nothing more to do there.

Furmark does not work in absence of a display driver. Try it again after installing the driver back.

The power supply is enough. Nothing to be worried about it.

Its good that you salvaged some free space. Definitely it will make some good behavior there. Now test how it is running, and let us know

So I ran into more BSOD's for a while and ended up removing my GPU and all but 1 stick of RAM. That seemed to be working, and seemed to be continuing to work when I put in another stick of RAM and the GPU, but after leaving my computer idling for a while, I returned to find another BSOD had occurred. I ran memtest86+ for 10 passes with the 2 Kingston memory sticks in and got 0 errors, and I ran FurMark and attached my results for that as well as another zip file containing more BSOD minidump data.

Oh, and I reinstalled Windows 7 before the most recent BSOD's.

You say there is no firmware updates over 3 years? That is bad.

As a test, try installing Windows in another HDD, say the 1 TB seagate. There is a lot of free space on the D drive. Cut 100 GBs out and install Windows there ..... to test how it goes on there.

I am suspecting the SSD is failing.

But if you want to do what I suggest and you dont have proper idea about what exactly is to do ... let us know. We can assist you in the process.

No good. I installed Windows 7 on the HDD and removed the SSD. I ended up with another BSOD (PFN_LIST_CORRUPT) while downloading updates for windows and a game through Steam.
