Windows 7: Seemingly random BSOD

After running Prime95 for about 30 minutes I found out I'd have to be doing something else today that will for a while atleast prevent me from babysitting the pc so I turned off the software.

I come back a hour or so later and it's bsod. See attatched.

Ok ran Prime95, there were no errors.

Just started to run Furmark and withing 4 minutes I was up to 100 degrees, the temp alarm went off so I stopped the test. Considering you wanted me to run it for 30 minutes the fact it got so hot so fast seems bad.

Will run the other tests now and report back.

Your GPU is overheating.
Check to see if you have enough airflow in your case.
Use HWmonitor to see how hot your computer gets during normal operation.

Take a screenshot of your computer's temperatures by using HWmonitor

Are you overclocking your GPU?
If so reset it to factory settings immediately!

Clean out your computer with compressed air.

Memtest took a small eternity but it ran all 8 cycles with zero errors. Chkdisk gave me an error on a drive that doesn't have my os, it fixed it.

Here is my system temps after 30 minutes of use on the net. See attached.
It doesn't seem all that hot, I do use canned air on my system ever so often, including opening it up and clearing it out, I actually did that the night before I started this post.

I do not overclock my GPU, back before I took off the Catalyst software I thought about it, but I was too paranoid that I'd do something wrong and hurt my system so I never touched it.

Seatools crashes on launch. Don't know what else to say about that one.

SFC gives this response:
C:\Users\owner>sfc /scannow

Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service.


I'm going to be gone most of the day so I'll try to figure out how to fix that when I get home, unless you have any ideas. Thanks for your help, hope your having a good saturday.

Have you got another GPU you can test?

Those temperatures are fine, GPU a little hot for normal use.

What do you mean SeaTools crashes?
What exactly does it do?
When you say crash do you mean not responding?

Does you computer crash when loading large files etc?

I do not have another GPU no, though considering how hot my GPU got I am considering purchasing another one come payday, can you recommend any good ones?


As for SeaTools crashing... see picture.

And no I don't have any real problems loading large files, I was messing around with a 3 gig iso the other day no problem. Unless you mean bigger files than that.. I don't even know what I'd do with files bigger than that.

Try the SeaTools DOS version. It's recommended.

It only detected my seagate drive, I attempted to make the changes to my bios but it doesn't seem to have worked.

Chose Sata config












The actual scan of the drive it did find showed no errors.

I realized that the program SpeedFan if you click on the S.M.A.R.T. tab will test the drives that I was unable to test using the tool recommended.

The computer took it upon itself to freeze late last night after I went to bed, I happened to have smartfun up and running so this morning I could see what it said, temps were low.

I recommend trying Driver Verifier if you are having freezing issues.

Enable driver verifier but only enable the options: Standard settings and IRP logging step 3.
Don't enable Force Pending I/O Requests

Enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier -Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information

We use Driver Verifier as it puts a stress on the drivers, and so it makes the unstable drivers crash. This should flag the driver responsible in the dump file.
It

Driver Verifier will make the system laggy, this is normal so don't worry.

Before enabling DV, make sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer.

If there are no points, make a System Restore Point Manually


Post back the results.

Seemingly Random BSOD
Hello, I've been dealing with with BSOD for sometime now(came out of nowhere). I now know that my earlier BSOD were most likely caused because of my GPU drivers so I've done a clean install of the current driver version but I'm still getting BSOD at random.

BSOD at seemingly random times, memory dump blaming random drivers
I've been plagued by odd problems since making this custom build about a month ago, but the latest is the increasing frequency of BSODs. They never occur at load (gaming with high end specs), but often occur at shutdown (forcing a restart before I can then actually shut down). I normally boot into...
