I tried to run the memtest again. still didnt show any errors.

The power supply is new. I also found a new problem. My fan at the top dont want to move. like it dosent get enough power. it moves alittle every 2sec and stops again. Continues like that.

As far as your other fan, that's a whole new problem where we need to determine if it might just be a worn out or a bad fan dying. Or if your system is cooled anough it's trying to reduce noise by going as slow as possible.


I know you ran prime95 for at least 2 hours. So i will assume your CPU is fine, no hardware or overheating issues in the CPU section.

Can you run Furmark for about 2 hours at least?
Once this test is complete I will also assume the GPU department is fine, no oeverheating issues either.

Memtest takes a few hours, not minutes. The test you did was too short to be able to tell anything.
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/105647-ram-test-memtest86.html Please read part 2 especially. If an error does appear please read part 3. You may want to print these out.
If the memory test does 7 passes on your Memory i will assume the problem is not your RAM.

Since the RAM test past, and the graphics test past, and CPU test all pass while being tested indiviually.We can now determine the problem isnt your graphics being faulty or other hardware. My gut feeling at first was RAM since you mention only crashing while using high amount of RAM.

Can you run Prime 95 and do heavy CPU and lot of RAM tested while doing that run furmark at same time. your computer should turn off if it's a underpowering issue. Please save all your work and close everything else.

If it does shut off let us know the sytem shutdown should occur under 30 minutes.
If it does not shut off the power supply was probably not the problem. We wil then assume the game is at fault.

In addition to the excellent help you're getting already, I'd work through other troubleshooting steps
to utilize System Resources, comb the logs, achieve a Clean Boot, and other steps that can bring you closer to resolving this.

If you have had a crash that generated a dump you can also gather what's needed and post it up in our Crashes forum for expert analysis that will pinpoint the cause: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Forums
