Windows 7: Multiple BSOD at Random Intervals

Multiple BSOD at Random Intervals

My computer has been working fine, until the last few days where it will BSOD 15 to 60 minutes after start-up. One program will freeze and become "Not Responding," other programs will continue to work for a few seconds before everything freezes except for the mouse and then the BSOD happens. The timing seems completely random, regardless of gaming, internet browsing, videos, etc.

I have re-installed the BIOS and done a clean install of my NVIDIA Drivers. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Hello and welcome auratus nice to see some system specs at least

Now can you tell us what the temps are doing especially on the CPU and GPU please?

Speccy will give you a rough idea

Screenshot Attached. CPU 45-50C, GPU got up to 80 C but stayed around 65 C most of the time. Thank you for the reply.

Ok but even those 40 - 50 for the CPU is a tad on the high side as the Tcase on that processor is just 67.9C see this http://ark.intel.com/products/37148/Intel-Core-i7-940-Processor-8M-Cache-2_93-GHz-4_80-GTs-Intel-QPI

I suppose it depends on what you are doing heavy gaming would have a greater effect of course.

One way of checking is to run a security scan and check the temp during it. Personally I would prefer 35 - 40C under "normal" operating conditions.

I was just thinking maybe the CPU was reaching that Tcase temp and causing it to shut down (safety feature).

Now just another quick test mate is this

Using HW Info PSU

Download HW Info and pick the right bit version - HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 -Download -(copy and paste thissite into the search bar) If you do not need the running information in thesmaller right hand panel close it. In the left hand window click on the + forthe individual device groupings and they will open out to the various components.

Go on opening out further until you get to the device itself. click on it andit will highlight. In the right hand window there will be a very detaileddescription of that device as in brand, speeds model number etc etc These arevery detailed and are just what is needed for searching for drivers etc.

To get the info select Sensor button

See my pic for an example - in this I have shown my power but it is a laptopand a desktop will show more details if you scroll down that listing.

I am not saying the PSU is at fault more to eliminate it as a cause of the problem.

PS Meant to add if you can send a pic of yours that would be good.

Thank you for your help. I think the attached image is what you asked for. This was taken while Avast! was running a full scan at around 45% completion.

Yep that is the one but there are no of the main 12v rails listed - odd.

An alternative is this but please use a digital meter as in the tutorial pics and a analogue has to inject typically 9v into a circuit to test and into 3.3v and 5v rails is not what you want to do.

PSU - Test DC Output Voltage

NB you don't have t open anything else to do that other one I asked for I just used that as an example as to how you can see in depth details of the various components try the RAM for example
