damn you ntoskrnl !

also, this time it was adobe flash player than crapped it out i think, and that seems to have been a common reason - it usually screened out playing embedded videos in online newspaper articles, although i wasn't getting the adobe has crashed, and yes, i am running the current version although i did do a bit of searching and perhaps i need to do something about 64bit compatibility, though the firefox compatibility tool says it's fine

help me obe wan

the fan for gaming

i'd rather pre-empt the speed to 60% at the outset rather than wait for it to heat up

my cooling is good, but more control is better i reckon

fwiw, the card is modded so :

Now we have a Verifier-Enabled dump pointing to the NT Kernel. Time for some hardware diagnostics.

First, the standard ones: RAM, CPU/temperatures, and hard drive.

First, run the Prime95 tests. I think all 3 (Blend, Small FFTs, Large FFTs) would be appropriate now; run them each for a couple of hours, or until they fail (whichever comes first). Be sure to watch Speedfan, especially for the Large FFTs test!

Run Memtest86 overnight: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Test hard drive with SeaTools.

In addition to those standard tests, try running Furmark.

Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

As for what program you can use to control your card, give Riva Tuner a try.

ntoskrnl.exe+70740 crashes me with embedded video yet again !

meantime :

memtest 4.1 ran overnight 8 passes - no errors

furmark hit 73c with the fan auto to 47% max - no errors

seatools long dst on the hdd - pass ( - no errors)

still need to do priming, but it's hot here presently and i don't need the room heated more; may do it overnight, but fwiw a quick down 'n' dirty 5 passes of LinX was - no errors also (but 65c is too hot for me; usual idle here is 34c, today it's ~40c - but probably the room is a little warm - outside ambient 29c)

it has crashed with loads way under that

i'll do stress testing when it seems better (cooler)


however, i'm thinking it's software - routinely happens with embedded video, adobe seems the major (possibly only) culprit - silverlight seems happy

where to from here ?

and update :

rivatuner threw an instant bsod when it launched after install

i think i'll consider a new o.s. install, except that although i bought a system with win 7 installed, it was an upgrade and the vendor had lost the vista disks... i still have the upgrade disks though

is it possible to do a legit reinstall without the vista disks, or am i up for buying yet another o.s. ?

i still have windows.old on the c: drive - does this enable me to do a clean install somehow, as the win 7 upgrade options program cd and key are intact ?

Before re-installing Windows, I would recommend that you upload new dumps.

Make sure Ccleaner is configured to not delete dump files.
