Thank you, mgorman87

Well for the past six hours I've been running the Stress Test.
I'll run the Memory Test tonight as the instructions recommend and post these results Sunday AM along with the Seagate scan.

If DV catches a driver then yes. Otherwise, probably not

What do you mean by this?
I'm afraid to run Driver Verifier again for fear I'll never get my computer back.

I ran the Stress test for over SEVEN HOURS yesterday with no problems.
I ran the Memory test for NINE HOURS with no errors.

mgorman87 - please tell me how I can repair the faulty driver(s)

Thanks,
Steve

If you make a system restore point before turning DV on, you should be able to restore back to it if your computer gets screwed up due to. There is no way to know what driver, if any, is causing your computer issues. The only way to know is by turning on DV and having it blue screen and then analyze the dumps.

You say you ran prime95 for seven hours? Was that just one of the tests? Did you run the other two?

I don't know "about the other two."
here's the results attached

when I run driver verifier and have a real hard time getting back to windows.
i mean it goes thru it's self repair for 30+ minutes and does nothing


but i thought my system wasn't even logging the dumps? so if i run driververifier, how can you analyse the dumps if we can't find them?

That's right. I forgot about that. So yea, if your not logging dumps then there's no point to turn on DV. We need to figure out why your not logging dumps

As for the other two tests.

There are three tests that need to be run with Prime95. Follow the tutorial above. It will explain it.

Open regedit, and export the following 2 keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

Change the two files you created via exporting those from .reg to .txt and post them here. Those should help us determine why you're not getting dumps.

OMG, you want me to run that stress test again? (I'M getting stressed, not the computer. LOL)
I've read https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...t-prime95.html and I don't see where there are any "other" tests, ie test #2 nor test #3

thanks catherder but I don't know how to change the "stuff" in the crashcontrol folder so I hope these screen shots work. LOL


Thanks guys.

Code:
4. Select "Small FFTs", or whatever tests someone asks you to run. 
Prime95 will automatically select the maximum number of 
threads reported by Windows in the "Number of threads to run" box.

You need to run Small FFTs, In-place large FFTs, and the Blend test for 3-4 hours each.
