Windows 7: BSOD Most likely GPU-related

BSOD Most likely GPU-related

Getting BSODs where the screen goes black, fans go crazy and computer restarts. I can only speculate on why it's happening but either it's completely random or it's got something to do with me using Google Chrome. I've tried rolling my GPU drivers back to last stable build but that did not fix the problem. Also tried re-installing OS, but no luck.

The problem is fairly recent. Only been happening for the last 3-4 weeks.

Please see attached archive.

There is a nice chance that the GPU is failing, as you are thinking. But before saying it, try another version of the display driver.

Neither of the drivers 340.52 WHQL and 337.88 WHQL are very stable. Try any other WHQL of the following ....

Downgraded to 334.89 and ran the stress-test.
No artefacting and the temp leveled out at like 75 degrees didn't BSOD or anything.

Now give it some more time and see how it goes. Let us know for any further BSOD.

BSOD'd again after about a day.

Am I right in assuming there is a hardware problem?

I made another info zip but I assume it's the same info as last time.

It is still the stop 0x116 continuing, despite of changing the display driver version. So there is a possibility of hardware failure. But as the furmark stress test ran without any issue, it is difficult to blame the hardware right now.

I will ask for hardware help for you.

Lavos, are you overclocking either the card or CPU? if you are, set everything back to defaults and see if the problem continues. I am not opposed to overclocking as you will notice below my signature. But it can sometimes lead to instability. It won't hurt to try and see, if you are in fact overclocking. I would also make sure my firmware was up to date on my SSD.

I might throw in my two cents worth with testing out that PSU too see my ditty

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 variouscomponents.

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 PSU volts you need to select the Sensor buttoncircled in yellow in the pic for PSU testing do the same and scroll down thereadout as in my pic to where it has Nuvoton = yours might be a differentsection name / title. Post back a pic of that please.

If you want a more definitive test see this
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/301799-psu-test-dc-output-voltage.html but lease only use a digital multimeter and not ananalogue as they inject typically 9v into a circuit to test and into a 3.3v or5v rail - not a good idea!! see the partial pic of the correct sort of meter inthat tutorial. details if you scroll down that listing.

No overclocking and the firmware is updated to the newest version.

Lavos, We're just trying, as best we can, to make sure it is the card. I would hate for you to RMA the card and have the same problems with the new one. The definitive test for me, is if you have a friend with a similar card who would swap cards with you for a day or so, just to see. If he has the same problems as you, but you have none, then it is pretty certain it is the card. If he has no problems but you do, it is either your PSU or Motherboard. Hopefully, you could swap with a card with a similar power draw to your card. That would be the ideal test. You would have a pretty darn good idea when finished.
