Hi, Alex, and welcome back. I am glad you had a good holiday and got to spend time with your family.

All of your drivers appear to be up to date. Good job with the drivers. As Yowan said both dumps are video card errors, bugcheck 116. Read the article in the link he posted. Take your video card out, make sure the slot is clean, and reseat it. Make sure the connections are secure.

If you get another BSOD, please run the JC Griff tool again and upload all of the newly generated files. Since you have made changes to your system - new RAM, updated BIOS, updated drivers - I would like to see the updated files. https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-debugging/96879-blue-screen-death-bsod-posting-instructions.html.

There is the possibility that your RAM settings are not quite right. RAM can trigger all sorts of errors. Run Memtest again from a cold boot after your computer has been off for a while. Run it for at least seven passes with your RAM sticks and configurations as they are when you get your last BSOD. Depending on what Memtest shows, I will ask the hardware Gurus to take a look at this thread. We have some guys who are experts on RAM and RAM settings.

I just finished running memtests and everything checked out clean. As it was new RAM (to replace the last lot of dodgy stuff I had before Christmas) I ran tests on each stick and all the slots again just to be sure. It took a while but I guess it was worth it to try and rule defective RAM out as a cause of my problems.

As for RAM settings, the RAM I have is on the mobo compatibility list as tried and tested to work and is set with manufacturers recommended timings, voltages, etc. I'll get on trying trying the videocard stuff and see how that works out. I'll let you know. The video card I have works fine under load though (i.e. running games and movies) and doesn't crash. Weird huh?

I hope you guys all had a good weekend. Alex

Glad to know your RAM problem is cleared up. Now for the results of the video card stress test.

Hey guys, which stress tester should I use for my gfx card? I noticed that furmark seems to be for 32 bit (and vista). Is there a something else or a newer version? Should I try ATItool? I have an ATI card.

Use Furmark first and then the ATI tool. Compare the results. Furmark does fine with a 64 bit system.

I ran Furmark just now and had no problems after half an hour. The min temp was 45C and the max was 83C. I didn't notice any problems visually either. Was there anything else I should have been looking for?

Also, I haven't had a BSOD since the last time I posted about it (the 7th of this month).

That is good news about not having another BSOD! I hope that continues. Based on your Furmark report, you GPX adapter is probably OK.

I guess is it a matter of wait and see what my next BSOD is if/when I have one?
