Windows 7: BSOD Persisting for 3 months (Have Fresh Dump File)

31 Jan 2011   #51

Win 7 Pro x64 SP1 OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.7

Update Chrome or use a different web browser (e.g: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari)

Windows 7 Professional 64

google chrome is up to date. I've used it for years and many many other people use it as well. I also have Firefox and I guarantee 100% that I'd get the same bluescreens if I was using it instead. Plus I stated in the beginning of this thread - I ONLY get crashes when gaming. Not when browsing the web. Not when watching movies or anything else. Just gaming and doesn't matter what game - crashes in them all. I've tried gaming with everything closed but the game and mumble (don't accuse mumble, that's not it) and still crash.

This doesn't seem to be getting anywhere. It feels like a bunch of wild stabs into the dark trying to blame it on all sorts of irrelevant things.

Here are things that are NOT causing the blue screens:
Google Chrome
Nvidia Drivers
EVGA Precision
MSI Afterburner

I'll repeat what I said in the original post: I had the blue screens before I switched to the EVGA gtx470 and its software. I had the same exact problems with a Sapphire ATi Radeon 5830. If I switched back would you just blame it on the other drivers? I also mentioned that the ATi Radeon 5830 worked just fine with my old Windows XP build.

I'm going to bed now, I'll check back tomorrow and see if we have some new ideas.

Alright, I'm going to try this:

remove 1 memory module, act as normal until it crashes.
act as normal until it crashes

I think this will help narrow things down. I'll either figure out if it's one memory module or the other or find out if it's the CPU/MB.

Windows 7 Professional 64

First module I had 10 crashes within an hour. Couldn't even stay on WoW long enough to last for an arena queue (under 3 minutes).

Swapped to the other module and haven't crashed since.

I've already sent in an RMA request.


Thanks for the help folks - hopefully this will help other people in the future when googling. I know I had a hard time finding the exact crash codes I was getting.
